What People are Saying about Epic Experiences:


Smiling family on vacation, Riviera Maya Mexico
The Ofeck Family at Rio Secreto
We just came back from the most amazing family vacation.  You planned it perfectly! From beginning to end everything went so smoothly.  From the minute we got into the shuttle we were on vacation.  The resort The Grand at Moon Palace was a dream.  From the soaring rich lobby, to the family suite, the swim up room, multiple pools, a huge variety of restaurants and delicious food, a teen lounge, lazy river, etc….
The spa was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen with many amenities of it’s own.  My husband and I each had wonderful massages that were covered by the resort credits.  We were very entertained by the daily activities held at the pool from male beauty contests for the guests, water spinning and aerobics classes, and live music.  In addition there was nightly entertainment such as beach parties, Fire show, and Michael Jackson tribute show.  We went to a magic show called Illusionists 2.0 which was previously on Broadway in NY and after we left the band the Back Street Boys were performing.
The resort is quite large, so it was very helpful to have the frequently running shuttles to get us around and the bus that takes you to the lobbies of the adjacent resorts.  The staff everywhere was extremely friendly and helpful making it very easy and comfortable to ask for anything you need.
Eva, thanks so much for putting together the best vacation!!  We would do it all over again just the same way!! Anat Ofeck and the Ofeck Family, Englewood Cliffs, NY (Riviera Cancun, 2017 Festive week trip)
Saline Beach Saint Barth with couple
Ali and Tim at Saline
Eva provided us with truly exceptional service in planning our recent trip to St Barth. From the initial contact with Eva right up until the time we were leaving she provided us with up-to-the-moment information on St Barth, such that we would be fully informed on all that the island has to offer. She helped us choose our accommodations, after learning about our needs and desires. She also arranged our rental car and gave us detailed information about the full range dining options on the island. She explained to us about each of the beautiful beaches on the island as well. We absolutely loved Les îlets where we stayed. It was all Eva said it would be. Overall, it was one of the very best trips ever, and we give Eva the very top rating for exceptional service. Eva is an expert on St Barth (her mom also lives there), and she is person to choose for all of your St Barth travel needs. She is a consummate professional, providing exceptional service with a friendly vibe. Ali and Tim, Milford, NH (December, 2017 Saint Barth birthday trip)
Honeymoon couple at RIU Palace Antillas
Crista and Mike with the villa section pool

It was amazing. The View was excellent we had our own Villa and the food was fantastic. Really no complaints other than the turbulence on the way back, but that was due to a storm in Ohio haha. The Rui is world class. The service was excellent. We would definitely go back. Thanks again! Crista and Mike Bohrer, Cuyahoga Falls, OH (November 2017 Aruba honeymoon)


honeymoon couple in Kauai, Hawaii
Shawnee and Rob in Kauai

First, thank you for securing and steering us toward such awesome hotels and for providing such great advice. We had a truly AMAZING honeymoon full of beauty and adventure! The insight, guidance, and recommendations that you offered to us were invaluable and magical. The Fairmont was a top notch hotel and the service was great. Thank you for the note! We loved getting notes from you and the hotel staff. 

Kauai is a GREAT place for couples! I hope this provides some insight for future honeymooners and also confirms for you how amazing it was to work with you. We had a lovely honeymoon. Thanks for all you’ve done, Eva!  Shawnee and Rob, Washington, DC (September 2017 Maui and Kauai honeymoon)


Honeymoon couple in Amsterdam bar
Julia and Ben in Amsterdam


This was our second time working with Eva and it won’t be the last! This time we used her to plan our European honeymoon. With all the stress of planning a wedding, she really took the stress off of us with planning our honeymoon. She really understood what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go and we had the trip of a lifetime! She was always available to answer any questions we had and made us feel comfortable traveling overseas for the first time!  Julia and Ben, Lakewood, OH (July 2017 Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam honeymoon)
Waterfall in Iceland

What a fantastic experience the trip to Iceland was.  It was like being in another world.  I felt as though I was walking on the moon.
Thank you, Eva, for the perfectly planned trip.  From the moment we got on the plane everything fell into place  —  the transportation from the airport to the Blue Lagoon and then onto the hotel in Reykjavik, which was located right in the center of the city.  All of your suggestions as to what we should see, where we should eat and shop, were fabulous choices. When the tour began, we were so happy to have such an enthusiastic and well-informed leader, as well as a wonderful group of people to share the beauty of Iceland with us.            
Eva, please share this with others, who wish to have this experience of a lifetime -– and also please start to plan another trip for us. Beverly Susskind, Bayonne, NY (September 2017 Reykjavik visit and Iceland tour)

Couple on the beach in New Zealand
Ethan and Deanna

Ethan and I can’t thank you enough for helping us on the most incredible journey.  Your expertise really ensured that every last detail was ironed out and our trip was so smooth and easy – with so much credit to you for that! 

We just got back home from our Australia/New Zealand trek – and boy was it the trip of a lifetime.  With no real jetlag either; those homeopathic pills really do help out a lot so thank you for the recommendation.  Not only that, but you truly helped us make this trip feel perfect.  You helped us with the international travel visa, currency information, credit card information, and even told us the importance of picking our seats on the plane.  

We rented the campervan with your help – and LOVED it.  The company was great to work with, the van the perfect size, and our trip ended up being just incredible because of it… 

ANd… maybe one of the best parts to share with you is that WE GOT ENGAGED on Lake Manapouri!!!!  

Thank you so much again, and hope to plan another trip with you soon — and I guess now we’ll also be thinking about our honeymoon location for 2018!

Eva was great! The accommodations were fabulous! Citadines apartments and the staff were awesome. Friendly and very helpful. Paris is a beautiful city and the food is delicious! Definitely will recommend Eva to everyone!

Eva is a very professional and knowledgeable travel advisor.  She brings an unusually high degree of commitment to her work— she responds to emails in a very timely manner (at all hours when we were traveling) and follows up on open issues without prompting.  We will certainly work with her again, and recommend her highly.

Joseph Ronan, Sharon VT (Riviera Maya vacation, August 2016)


Eva arranged a wonderful trip for me in Spain found the town of Haro which is a great wine destination and found a wonderful hotel which had been a 14th Century convent. I had a great trip.

Eva took charge from the beginning. This is my first experience working with a travel agent planning a trip. She gave me detailed options to best make decisions on itienary, pricing, locations and activities. Based on her recommendation our entire trip has a different look to it than we had planned. I feel that she wants us to have the best time and she has taken care of everything. I am still a month away from the trip and all the hotels and trips have been booked. She is even giving me detailed info on vegetarian restaurants, art galleries etc. Thank you so much Eva!

Dr. Sid Sharma, Atlanta, GA (January 2016 Yucatan trip)


Stuck in DC after the Amtrak disaster last spring, I called Eva in a panic – get me on a flight home! She dropped everything and found a flight at the right time and reasonably priced. She took care of all of the details to expedite ticketing and seating. I’m so appreciative!

Risa Levine, New York, NY


Best event – time with family and friends. We owe it all to you. Barb and I will call you soon so Barb and I can plan our next trip. Can’t thank you enough. Everything was perfect!

Amanda Hufford Police's Destination Wedding
Amanda and her bridesmaids

What started out as a small destination wedding ended up being an event for 60 people! Eva handled it with grace and professionalism. Our elderly guests that needed special services at the airports and resorts couldn’t have made the trip without Eva getting everything they needed setup. As the parents of the bride she made our job so much easier which allowed us to focus our attention on the bride and groom. We couldn’t have provided our daughter with her fantasy wedding without Eva’s help. We will be using her services for our future travels and so will my daugher & new husband.

Shelly Hufford, N. Canton, OH (April 2016 Destination Wedding, Riviera Maya)


Wonderful job planning our Egypt trip last November. Everything was perfect from the moment that we arrived in Cairo with our guide waiting for us with a sign at customs to when we left. I highly recommend and will use to plan our next trip.

Thank you so much for everything. The trip was amazing we had a wonderful time. The beds in the rooms were a little hard but other than that it’s great. Again, thank you so much for everything💕

Megan Crawford, Hampton, GA (January 2016 Punta Cana vacation)

I wanted a relaxing, non stressful vacation that would not cost an arm and a leg, but I had no idea where or what to look for as far as places or deals.  Luckily I spoke with Eva Grodberg of Epic Experiences who, after asking me several questions, suggested an all inclusive vacation package at a resort near Cancun, Mexico.  The place was fabulous, clean, the staff friendly and attentive.  The all inclusive package was a very big plus since on my limited budget I didn’t have to worry about the cost of anything, including alcoholic beverages.  Ms. Grodberg actually listened to me and made sure my needs and wants were met.  This vacation was exactly what I needed and it was worth every penny.  Thanks Eva.

Family party at Ireland's Bushmills Distillery
Steve, Dillon, Maureen, and Tara at the Bushmills Distillery
My family just returned from a wonder trip to Ireland that was organized  by Eva Grodberg. Everything from the flights, to the car rental, to 5 marvelous hotels went without a hitch. Eva wasn’t happy with one of the hotels we were supposed to stay at in Galway, and she found us a better spot, right in the heart of the downtown. We were upgraded at Beech Hill in Londonderry, a gorgeous hotel Eva found, where the Kennedys and Bill Clinton stayed. We will use Eva again when we book our next vacation.

couple with parrots in Mexico
Pat and Bernie and the Parrots at Secrets Playa Mujeres

Eva thank you for your help, everything you told us, worked out well.  We had no issues with the travelling, everything went very smooth. The transfers to and from the hotel were great, and on time.  We loved the Secrets Resort, it was beautiful, the staff was excellent.  We also spent some time at Dreams and it was beautiful there too.  We used the water slides at Dreams, and the Grotto bar.  The food was excellent in flavor, although, the boys did a double take on the size of the main entrées.  Our meals took a long time, maybe because we eight went to dinner  together each evening. Each evening meal was an adventure.  We tried every restaurant at Secrets and we did the International Seafood and Brazilian steakhouse at Dreams. I even tried room service, I ordered two glasses of wine, and some Pringles. That came very fast, even though they said to allow 55 minutes.

Pat and Bernie, North Canton, OH (Secrets Playa Mujeres, Mexico, February 2017)


Eva was so kind and warm. My wife and I wanted to go to NYC for our 21st Anniversary. Eva helped us book our hotel, Broadway tickets and even talked to us about things to do while we were there. She was so helpful and went beyond expectations. In fact, we have booked another trip to NYC so our kids can go with us. Eva, you rock! Thanks so very much for your kindness and hard work! We are recommending this service to our friends and family!
