Kind Words from Saddle Hill Travelers

We had an amazing time!!! Thank you for everything!!! The hotels and the the boat were awesome and Croatia is stunning!!! By far the most pristine, clean city and country we have ever been to! The water was emerald color crystal clear and the small villages were so welcoming and picturesque. Thank you for planning such a spectacular trip. It was one of the best family trips we have ever had together!!!

Jane is awesome! Very responsive, savvy, pleasant and knowledgeable. She was able to put a family trip together for us in just 4 weeks! No easy task. She read our minds as far as places to visit, sites to see etc. The accommodations and dinner recommendations were spot on as well! The drivers and tour guides were fabulous too. We loved every minute of our trip! Would highly recommend Jane and would use her again for sure!

Jane is fabulous to work with! She is able to listen to us talk about our goals for the trip and then turn that into reality. This trip was about going to Germany and learning about WWII, the Nazi’s, the Berlin Wall, etc. and boy did that happen! We also enjoyed the food and beer and the wonderful places we stayed. Jane stayed in touch to make sure all was going well and offer us any assistance if needed. She is a true professional.

It is a pleasure to work with Jane Braun. She is thorough, caring and efficient. She perseveres and keeps you informed until every need is met. She is warm, patient and cheerful, yet highly professional. We were traveling as a family of 12 ranging in age from 11 to 90, celebrating a special occasion. We were coming from 3 different locations in the U.S. From helping us to select an appropriate trip (a cruise on a small, informal but luxurious ship) to guiding us in every detail of the planning and responding promptly to every concern, Jane tried successfully to anticipate what each person would need to make this a great and memorable trip. She made sure that there were people on the ship eager to help us with our celebration, and she kept herself available to help us with any unanticipated problems until we had safely returned home.

At first blush, the notion of planning a trip to China for my family was a bit overwhelming. But then we found Jane and, from our very first conversation, I knew we were in good hands. Passports, visas, flights, hotels, guides, restaurants, cultural events,, excursions and a whole host of other smaller, but no less important details all seemed to just flow effortlessly into place. Jane has a wonderful knack of keeping you actively engaged with the fun part of planning (when to go, what to see, where to eat…) without laying on the burden of complicated logistics. She has a steady hand to make sure decisions get made in a timely and organized fashion and a nice touch to dissuade you from falling into the trap of trying to pack too much into the day. She also was very respectful about budget and was a real partner in putting together an adventure that was exciting but didn’t cost a king’s ransom – quality and value were the two cornerstones that she built the itinerary around.

Awesome trip. My husband and I were in the mood for a short getaway to someplace warm, but not too far. Jane recommended Miami Beach and the Faena Miami Hotel – a perfect choice. Jane went the extra mile for a suite upgrade, early check-in and late check-out. Could not have asked for a better spot. The process was really simple too! Yes, I’ll call Jane again when we need another vacation! Everyone should. Thanks again for a smart, elegant getaway!

We are back home and wanted to thank you both as we had a wonderful trip.   The weather was just perfect, sunny almost the whole time and warm.  Our guide was our little leprechaun - full of history knowledge and very accommodating.  Everything that was arranged was amazing and gave us a really good feel for Ireland's beauty and history .  The accommodations were all great but we really enjoyed Gregans Castle where we had a wonderful birthday celebration for Mark.  Of course we can’t wait to go back, but we have lots more places to go as travel resumes back to normal in most places in the world.  Thank you again for making such lovely and carefree arrangements for us.
