WOW is really the best word to describe this past week.  Jade Mountain was absolutely incredible!  Carrie & I had an unforgettable time, it was definitely the trip of a lifetime.  Thank you very much Kara for everything you've done in getting us there & back and ensuring we had a spectacular time.  Thank you also for the bottle of Chardonnay upon our arrival...that was a very thoughtful extra touch. 

It was certainly nice to be able to rely on you to handle all the preparatory paperwork & processing required to make this trip the greatest of our lives, especially amidst the hustle & bustle of the wedding prep.  Thank you again for everything, and I'll eventually be calling you again for assistance with our next big trip!

Ben & Carrie Dycus- Lexington, KY

We were so excited to plan our honeymoon and knew we wanted a trip to Mexico.  We had casually looked online and thought about booking ourselves until my mom & I attended a bridal show and we met Kara with Elite Travel.  When I mentioned the locations we had considered she immediately told me about another option in the same area where she had personally visited and recommended.  I could tell immediately how sincere she was and she lit up and was so passionate when talking about the resort. When I walked away from her booth, I knew we would be coming back to her.  She arranged our trip to Secrets Maroma with every attention to detail so that we could simply enjoy the trip and not be troubled with any worry.  She took time and stayed in touch and told us what to expect covering everything from arriving at the airport and the resort to our return back to the States.  We were very well prepared and had no issues.  It was so nice to arrive at the airport and have transportation waiting for us as well as the special treatment we received upon arrival at the resort.  When returning from our wonderful and relaxing trip, my mother asked the most important question…."Would you go back again?”  Definitely YES and we will definitely call Kara again for our next trip, no matter where that may be.

Kara helped us plan our honeymoon and she did not disappoint.  She suggested several destinations and gave us detailed information to help make our decision.  We decided on Sandals La Toc in St. Lucia, and it was fabulous!!  From start to finish Kara was there to answer any questions we had and to make very helpful suggestions and recommendations.  We would recommend Kara to anyone looking to take a vacation.  She was so helpful and knowledgable.  We can’t wait to work with Kara again!!

The trip exceeded all expectations.  Obviously, the upgrades (first class air, front train car, and specific cruise cabins) helped but it was the organization and efforts made that caused it to be such a success.  The stories are numerous.

Marissa at Elite Travel Designs was a joy to work with!   We just took our first cruise ever and she made it so easy!  She did all the work for us and then gave us a detailed list of everything we needed to do and to know.  She would check in with us periodically before our trip to make sure we didn’t have any questions and to see if there was anything else she could do for us.  When we returned, she contacted us to make sure everything went well on our trip.  You couldn’t ask for anything more from a travel agent!  We are getting ready to book another vacation through Marissa for next summer.  We highly recommend Marissa at Elite Travel Designs to make your vacation a truly memorable experience!

Mitchell & Amy Smith- Bowling Green, KY


Used Kara about 5 times so far and I am impressed each time I go back to her, so as we Texans say "she's our gal". Has never mattered that we live in Texas and the office is in Kentucky, she takes care of us beautifully.
