Glaciers are one of the #1 reasons people want to see Alaska. One of the coolest ways to see them is by helicopter.
Did you know that some glaciers can have tons of helicopters all landing in the same place? It's not-so-picturesque and it isn't cheap. But other glaciers restrict access to make for a much better experience...one where you really get to feel like you land in the middle of the wild.
It matters where you book your shore excursions. Not all companies are created equal.

🧭 Travel Tip: Don't book your flights before you think about your whole trip.
Booking flights before any trip planning is like buying a gift bag before knowing what gift you are giving. You will have to make the gift fit that bag rather than the bag fit the gift.
Flights are often one of the last things we book as part of a trip. It's really important that you take into consideration the whole trip, transportation, and activities before deciding on flights and dates. ... See MoreSee Less
Fun Travel Fact of the Day: If you are going to fly in an exit row, certain airlines prohibit you from flying with a falcon.
Equally as cool, there are awesome castle and cultural experiences in the United Kingdom where you can learn and experience falconry. #bucketlist #justnotintheexitrow ... See MoreSee Less

Taking someone else's trip is like wearing someone else's swim suit. It probably won't feel the best. ~Mandy
Q:"Where should we go?"
A: Trips aren't one-size-fits-all.
This week we have consulted on several couple trips all wanting the same thing: a beach vacation.
WRONG. Not the same.
Each couple ended up planning a different resort on different islands for different reasons. Many they hadn't thought about until we talked.
This morning we heard from clients on their perfect trip: "Best time ever!"
That's exactly what we want every traveler to experience. THEIR best time ever.

Question of the Day: What does "KTN" mean on my flight?
KTN stands for "Known Traveler Number" and represents programs like Global Entry and TSA Pre-Check. These are services you pre-apply and pay for that allow you expedited security procedures. You are then assigned a known traveler number that you enter when you book flights. This will then appear on your boarding pass as "TSA PRECHECK" so security guard know to let you into the expedited line.
We ❤️ Pre-check and HIGHLY recommend it for all frequent travelers. ... See MoreSee Less

It's a new year and Disney World released Free Dining today...for very limited dates this summer. It's the most restrictive free dining offer ever. Your trip must start:
June 27th or 28th
August 29th-Sept 8th
Opinion: We do not expect more free dining promos to be released for the Fall. So, if you were thinking about a Fall 2020 Walt Disney World trip, we suggest you get it booked. Thanksgiving dates are now available!
Bonus tip: Booking early is ALWAYS your best bet with Disney. You can change to a new promo if a better one comes out, but you can't go back and get the great early pricing! ... See MoreSee Less
