Brandon ice climbing at Solheimajokull. How cool!

Eva is an incredible partner whenever I am looking for a trip. She goes above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of my trips are handled and whenever I felt I needed details explained, Eva took the time (several of them) to help me comprehend the itineraries.

Eva is extremely well communicative and is easily accessible. I cannot wait to book my next adventure with Eva!

Thank you so much for helping us book this amazing trip! We didn’t want to come back!

Le Ti was by far one of my faves – the cabaret was so much fun and the food was delicious.

And the hotel was amazing! Except now I keep waiting for someone to clean my room and make/serve me breakfast etc lol
Thanks again for helping us get this together so quickly…is it time to go back yet???

Friends trip to St. Barth, December 2023

Bryer, Mandy, and Emery at the Statue of Liberty

We had an absolute blast! The food tour was the hightlight and the view of St. Patrick’s blew Bryer’s mind bc of Spider-Man! 

The hotel was magnificent! The decorations were beautiful! The beds were exceptionally comfortable, and it was surprisingly tranquil. We ordered room service three times, and save for a slightly burnt bagel on the final morning, everything was delicious. The doormen were exemplary, demonstrating professionalism, friendliness, humor, and efficiently managing everything.

I’ve told several friends and family how successful the trip was because of your help, thank you so much!

New York City holiday family vacation, December 2023

Our 3rd Europe trip organized by Eva. Accommodations have always been over the top!

She is easy to reach, and knowledgeable about the destinations, recommending tours that we otherwise would not have done…or would have stood in line waiting for. The “skip the line” tours that she arranged were convenient and saved us hours, allowing for additional sightseeing. All transportation connections that Eva put together were seemless, from the personalized pickup at the Airport, to the water taxi to the airport.

We had 10 wonderful days without a hitch, all of it put together by Eva.

She previously planned our Ireland and Spain trips, and her knowledge of these and other European locations is impressive because of all the research she prepares.

Thank you Eva!

Sondra and Richard on the pristine beach at Hyatt Zilara Riviera Maya

Hyatt Zilara was wonderful. Service was exceptional. Food fantastic—even though one of their restaurants was closed majority of time. Creative cocktails. Coffee shop served lattes, pastries and gelato from 0600-2300.

Open -air decor with natural elements invited you to sit in any one of the comfy chairs to read a book or people watch. Spacious rooms with luxurious beds and linens, with ocean-view terraces.  Nightly entertainment was top-notch. No one propositioning time shares. 

All good—just to let you know this is more a place to relax, than exercise.

Dorinda and Rich at Cologne Cathedral


The trip was fabulous, one of the best trips Dorinda and I have had – everything was perfect all along the way.

We were quite happy with AMA and the Amalucia – the staff was great and the ship was in great shape.  Everything you planned came out as expected – the rooms, transportation and hotels.  We loved our time in Amsterdam before the trip and then our brief visit in Zurich. It certainly was a trip of a lifetime.
If Dorinda and I decide another trip in the future we’ll be calling.

Rhine River Cruise, September 2023

We had a fabulous time.  Everything was wonderful.

The Esprit was magnificent.  The room upgrade was very special.  Loved the balcony.

Bordeaux was great.  Villa Foch was also a really nice hotel.  An old building with that fabulous staircase but with modern furnishings.  The staff there was super nice and very helpful.

We really enjoyed the chateaus and had some great experiences – picking grapes for harvest, eating lunch with everyone during harvest, a beautiful lunch as Cos.  Each of the driver guides were so nice and knowledgeable.

We really appreciate all of your help with this!

Our trip was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of it, except for my broken tooth of course.
Our favorite parts of the trip were our time in Beaune, the private dinner with Chef Jean Yves, and our stay at the Sofitel Legend.
Thanks for planning the best trip. We of course, will recommend you to all our friends.

Jean and Doug at the Colosseum

It truly was  a FABULOUS TRIP and we are very grateful to you for all of your hard work.

Hotel Trevi: totally amazing, breakfast is sensational! PERFECT PLACE!!!!!!  Sparkling clean and peaceful. We LOVED the food in ROME…thought it was exceptional. I had many traditional dishes that I grew up with. All hired drivers were professional, courteous and friendly. ALL tour guides were amazing and we loved them!!! They were all walking encyclopedias and very engaging. We learned so much (we both love history and art).  I went to mass in St. Peter’s Basilica and received Holy Communion.

Cooking class: intimate experience, so much fun and delicious. The family is friendly and fun. Pompeii winery and lunch was lots of fun and a beautiful venue. 

BENEVENTO: with the help of a true angel that we met on the street, we found my mother’s family and visited with her two first cousins. I have A LOT Of family there. My grandfather who emigrated to the US had seven siblings and six of them stayed in Italy. The family actually lives in a small village next to Benevento call San Luecio de Sannio. It was the highlight of the trip. We now have addresses and phone contacts to stay in touch. I spoke lots of Italian there.

I will definitely refer you to my friends and family.

We can’t thank her enough for making our honeymoon so special.

Paris and Bordeaux Honeymoon, May 2023

The vacation was really great!  Thanks for everything you did to help make it so wonderful!
The resort was new and clean, the staff were all incredibly friendly, and the food was generally really good.
The highlight was the Cenote Sound Journey! It was incredible to be the only ones in the cenote. At one point we turned off the flashlights and did a guided meditation in the pitch darkness. And the sound performance at the end was otherworldly.
Kids had a blast.  Mom was happy. So a successful trip that brought joy to 3 generations 🙂 Thanks again for everything!
Brandon Palermo, Philadelphia, PA

Multigenerational Tulum Family Vacation, April 2023

Thank you so much! We had an incredible time. I want to give you a special thank you for the lovely bottle of Prosecco in our room when we arrived. We enjoyed it while soaking in the tub!

We could not say enough amazing things about it. Everything was amazing. The food, drinks, service, ambiance. Spectacular. For example, Steff brought a massive bag of peanut M&Ms so everyday at the pool, they would preemptively give her a bucket of ice for her M&Ms. Little things like that.


We truly couldn’t have had a better experience on our honeymoon. Thank you so much for making that happen.

Soss Family at Atlantis

The trip was excellent and everyone had a great time.

The Reef I super nice. The rooms are large and very nice and views amazing. The food was good.

I would give the trip an A as it was great just spending quality time with the family. Also, went to the Ocean Club for a very nice lunch for Aud’s Birthday!

Thank you very much for planning a great trip and very much appreciated.

Eva always knows how to pick amazing hotels and resorts based on our wish lists! We had no prior knowledge of Whistler, but it’s become one of our favourite locations because of where she suggested we stay, the Fairmont Chateau.

The property and surrounding area made for a perfect romantic getaway for our anniversary. Thank you, Eva!

Scenic Alaska shot from the Alaska Rail Goldstar car

Eva took care of all the details for our 40th anniversary Alaska adventure. We did the “Deluxe Alaska Sampler” tour through Alaska Railroad.

We saw a lot in six days. Mountains, glaciers, sled dogs & wildlife, all while traveling Gold Star class on the train. Hotels every night.

The Axus app Eva provided had our itinerary, which took a lot of the guesswork out making connections.

Subway Wall tiles in Porto, Portugal by Lori


Eva has been such a delight to work with over the past 3 years. Due to the pandemic, she had to handle the cancellations, refunds and make all new arrangements for my first trip to Europe.

I would never be able to do what she did and make the trip so memorable and fun. It was a great way to get a taste of what Europe has to offer. Shall plan another tour soon.

Douro River Cruise and Porto, June 2022

Risa and Friends on their way to their yacht

Everyone, including (and especially) me had an incredible time.

We did fabulously. Spencer took on checking out restaurants and making rezzies. David took on wine. Heather was busy stuffing olives w Gorgonzola and muddling cucumbers. Ann brought a backgammon board and was lots of fun.

I’m ecstatic how everyone got along. That was my (irrational) concern, I wanted them to like each other and they did!

The country is beautiful. The weather is perfect. The food is amazing. I didn’t kiss a boy and I didn’t jump off the boat into the water, two of my goals. But otherwise, perfection.

Croatia Yacht Charter Birthday Celebration, June 2022

Tanesha, Diamond and Shaniya in the Maldives!


Overall, we had an AMAZING time and everything over-exceeded our expectations…Shaniya said this was the BEST birthday gift EVER, lol! 

The transition between resorts was definitely seamless and they took great care of us at both resorts. I love that the check-in process is pretty much handled at their lounge inside the airport and by time you’re transported to the resort, you’re handed your room keys and escorted directly to your villa. Upon our departure, the Niyama Island staff member never left our side until after we were checked into our flight and proceeded to our gate.

There was a monsoon the first 2 days of our time in Anantara Dhigu. The sun made an appearance the day of our departure to Niyama Private Island and stuck with us for the remainder of the trip.

The dining experience and hospitality at Anantara Dhigu was impeccable! There was not a dish that we did not love and I loved how t
he staff paid attention to specific details. For instance, our villa was originally stocked with both sparkling and still bottled water… They must’ve picked up on that and for the remainder of our stay, our villa was stocked with nothing but still bottled water without me having to tell them. They gave this same attention to detail at the restaurants as well….we didn’t have to ask, they already knew what we wanted!

The little touches such as decorated bed with “Happy Birthday”, table setting at dinner and the chef surprising Shaniya by baking her a birthday cake definitely left an impression.

We definitely enjoyed the pool villa upgrade and the staff added a few added touches to the room to make us feel warm welcomed. For example, our bikes were personalized with a wooden name tag carved with our names that we got to keep as a keepsake, upon entry into the room, there was a message that read “Dear Tanesha, Diamond & Shaniya – Welcome to Nature’s Playground!” – which is the slogan for Niyama Private Island and there was an assortment of fruit, danishes and birthday cake for Shaniya, along with a decorated bed.

Maldives 21st Birthday Celebration, May 2022

Lisa and Tom in Tuscany

Ciao Eva! I can’t begin to tell you how amazing our trip was. It is beyond words. We could not say enough about what a wonderful job you did planning it for us.

First of all, the transportation was awesome! We didn’t have to worry about anything. We knew someone would be wherever we were to lead us into the next direction.

Our time in Venice was unforgettable. I am glad we did not plan anything. It was nice to be able to relax and explore.
Florence was wonderful.  I think our favorite day was the private tours with Alberto.  He was so knowledgeable and shared wonderful information!  Nostra Vita is truly a special place.  Annibale welcomed us with open arms.  We were in awe with the love he has for art and the treasures he finds on his property.  He was so happy and proud to share.  His wine was by far our favorite!
Alberto took us to Piazza for lunch and we had amazing pasta Pomodoro!  The afternoon trip to Villa Anna’s place was also spectacular.  She is a unique woman and we enjoyed spending time with her.  She really made us feel at home.

Our guide for the walking tour was incredible!  We had a blast.  Seeing David was a must for us and it was so interesting to learn about the role the Medicis played in the city.

By the time we went to Rome, we were exhausted but we rallied!  The tour of the Vatican and the Coliseum was a lot to do in one day but unforgettable!
And of course, we had a wonderful time in Praiano and Puglia with our friends.  It was definitely a trip of a lifetime and we can’t wait to plan the next one with you!

Thank you for everything you did and tailoring the trip to meet our needs perfectly. We wouldn’t have changed a thing!!

Having just returned from an absolutely wonderful 10 days in Paris, with a pre-cruise stay along with Seine river cruise, I have to thank Epic Experiences.

Every step of the way was easier than I thought possible. Eva made great recommendations as we have never been to Paris, or Europe for that matter.

We are already discussing our next big trip and Epic will certainly be involved!

Cairo and Nile River Cruise, March 2022

We had a blast!! WIMCO did a really nice job…Hugo, the property manager (can’t remember his name), and the housekeeper were all very nice and so professional. The island was busy because of the regatta but it made it  fun too, especially at Le Ti,  Of course, the weather was great and beaches/villa were well used.
Thanks for all of your help putting this together for us!!  Already making plans for a return visit….

Napa was an amazing experience! It was the perfect destination for our annual Girl’s Trip and there is so much much to do. Definitely get a driver for the wine tours and try the Hot Air Balloon ride- you will not regret it! Thank you for suggesting it! This was a trip that we will never forget!

Thanks for sharing your incredible expertise finding and booking us a hotel on short notice in Puerto Rico. We loved being on the ocean and enjoying the surrounding beauty of our lovely hotel. We enjoyed being such a close cab ride to San Juan’s old town as well. It was a laid back trip to recoup and relax and it was perfect. Thanks again!

Saint Barth 40th Birthday Trip, December 2021

We just wanted to thank you for an outstanding getaway to Couples Swept Away.

By far your best contribution was Club Mobay. Upon deplaning our rep met us immediately and escorted us pass hundreds of people standing on line. This was a priceless investment in kicking off the vacation.

Our room was right on the beach. Waking each morning to the quiet sound of mini waves breaking was a tranquil release. The porch was a delight to sit in during the heat of the day, out of the sun but a great view of the sea and and the sand. The food was outstanding. And there were far more activities than we had time to sample.

I played tennis every day. Sondra had spin and other exercise classes. …Not to mention the bicycle boat she experienced.

We tried couples massage class. Salsa dancing with staff member Crazy Legs. Evening bonfire. Piano Lounge. Steel Drums concert. Delicious papaya banana smoothies.

Napa/Somoma to Santa Barbara - Friends 60th Bday Do-Over Nov 2021

My best friends and I just returned from a 60th birthday celebration that Eva from Epic Experiences planned. It was absolutely perfect! Our accommodations were great, comfortable and walking distance to practically everywhere.

Our trip included 2 wine tours and both were great. The guides were knowledgeable and shared historical information about the ares. The timing of both tours kept us on schedule and gave us the relaxing time we desired. I look forward to have Eva plan another trip!!

Debbie "Coz"

Napa/Sonoma to Santa Barbara - Friends 60th Bday Do-Over

My 3 best girlfriends and I used Eva’s services to plan and book a trip to celebrate our birthdays. After several wonderful suggestions, we decided to go to California, starting in Sonoma and then driving south to Santa Barbara, making several stops along the way. Everything went so smoothly.

All of the accommodations were great and the wine tours were fantastic. I would definitely use Eva again. I highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks again for a phenomenal trip!

Napa/Sonoma to Santa Barbara - Friends 60th Bday Do-Over

Hotels were all great. Good locations and the staff were very helpful. The hotel in Turin was literally right across the street from the train station so it was very convenient traveling by train. I should have started earlier making arrangements to visit wineries but I knew that.

If anyone is looking to visit Turin ask them if they like chocolate. There are a bunch of artisanal producers who are really good.

Piemonte and Milan, Italy, October 2021

We are back and right back to work ?.  The trip was amazing!  
The hotel was wonderful. The rooms were extremely clean and cozy.  Wonderful layout in the bathroom.  Probably the best room we’ve had in Europe.  Customer service was exceptional.  The driver did show up to take us back to the airport and was very nice.
Thank you for all your recommendations and planning.  It was a wonderful trip.  
We absolutely want your help to plan our 30th anniversary trip to French Polynesia.

New York City Birthday Trip, August 2021

My husband and I just wanted to say what an amazing vacation we had in Cozumel. We loved the Explorean. It was clean and COVID safety was a top priority for them. Masks were worn inside and outside and they made us sanitize our hands at every restaurant. The staff was so friendly and helpful, we had so many positive interactions.

The excursions provided by the resort were wonderful. We loved El Cielo the most, the sand bar with the sting rays swimming by our feet was beautiful! We snorkeled, went on a Jeep tour, swam in a cenote and my husband biked on two excursions also!

I can’t say enough good things about the food. Best vacation food I’ve ever had and I’m a serious food snob. Breakfast at the Explorean was the best. The buffet at Fiesta Americana was great too, but it’s better to get there earlier than later, and you have to sit in the breezeway so you can access the breeze and see the beach as you eat.

Overall, 10 out of 10. Thank you so much for booking this for us!

We have worked with Eva on several trips over the years and have found her knowledge, expertise and communication to be fantastic! Eva is creative and listens to our desires, she is well connected in the travel industry thus can provide experiences and options not available to the lay person and she does a great job keeping us informed along with way.

The choice to work with Eva has never been so important as it was on our last trip to St Barths (during COVID) as changes were happening day by day. She kept us informed and helped us with resources to coordinate new and changing requirements.

Very nice all around. The hotel was very elegant with high ceilings and artwork. Very nice. Had a great steak and lobster mac dinner at Gordon Ramsey’s Pub and Grill. Went on the boards and the beach.  The casino was lively and they had a bar open. Nice fountains in the hotel and big rooms. Very pleasant. Got to relax a little too which was new in the recent times. Parking was included in the resort fee which was nice. No coffee makers, pads and pens and a few other items in the rooms due to covid-19. Had a great time!

Ben and I had a really great time. There was incredible snorkelling right on Sheraton’s property and we even lucked into seeing sea turtles! So amazing. Snorkelling is life changing and we’ll be doing that again in the future for sure. 

It was an excellent trip overall. Ben and I are tough and can easily laugh things off like bad shuttle drivers [for which Eva secured a $200 credit] when we were able to experience a week of beautiful sunsets in paradise. And we so needed the time away together. Breakfast at the resort was great every morning, there was lots of wildlife to enjoy, and there’s no better water to swim in than Maui’s Pacific!

We went salmon fishing and caught 6 fish and had the fillets freeze dried and shipped back home to us. Experience of a lifetime!
I’m sure we’ll be contacting you in the future to book. We’re thinking maybe a Hawaiian cruise in a couple years. Thanks again for all your help.

I just wanted you to know how much we loved the hotel and the staff. We also liked the driver for Impulse travel. We had a truly wonderful time in the city. Our favorite part was Getsemanie but we are glad we stayed in the old city. We loved the view from the top of the hotel Movich and the music at Havana. We are super glad we left to visit an island and will do that again if and when we return.. possibly even for a night or two.

Everything went super smoothly especially the transportation. Thank you for everything. We look forward to booking with you again!

Israel Family Trip for Eleven people, July 2019

Family on Gondola in Venice

Avery, Emma, Brigid, Jen and John on a gondola in Venice

We just returned from our second family excursion planned by Eva! We had a fantastic trip all around Italy starting with Rome, day trip to Pompeii, relaxed for several days in beautiful Tuscany region and ended our trip on a high note in Venice!

Eva was a joy to work with from beginning to end. She always made herself available to me for any questions I had. Her emails were always so timely and thorough and if she told me she’d call me at a specific time, she phoned me exactly at that time, on the minute! She is very organized and so kind and thoughtful. She even made sure to ask me if our passports were current and ready to go.

On the trip, every connection was seamless. It was such a relief whenever we got off trains or planes to see our transfer agents standing there with a smile and a sign with our family surname on it right on time!

I used to always plan my own trips but I must say I have been spoiled by Eva and I love to have her help me now organize my trips. I simply tell her where I’d like to go and what I’d like to do and she connects the dots and makes it happen!

Eva helped us plan our family’s Europe travels and couldn’t be more pleased with her expertise. Every detail was handled so we could enjoy the moment without stress of transportation.

The hotel choices exceeded our expectation. Our two main resort stays were perfect: Casa Fuster in Barcelona and Marbella Club in Marbella. The best part is that we were able to enjoy stress free time.

The local life tour you booked for us was great! You also suggested Atelier des Lumieres and we loved it too! We loved some of your food and activity suggestions. Thank you so much for helping us have a fantastic time in Paris!

Working with Eva to plan our honeymoon trip was exciting, fun and so easy! She helped us through every step of the process making sure we had all information needed to make the best decisions. Our trip was seamless from airport, transportation to hotel, our room and trip home. No issues at all and the resort was fantastic! She knows the best places to go that have the best rooms and service. We had the best time and the best part is we didn’t have to think about anything or worry! Thank you Eva! Can’t wait to book our next trip with you!

We had such a fabulous trip to Italy! The food was amazing and we were grateful for the tours because we got so much more out of our experiences – especially the art scene and museums. I think our favorite tour was the Cinque Terre all-day tour. Those little villages are beautiful. Now we have photos and memories to last a lifetime!

Rome and Florence Italy trip, May 2019

travelers and guide in front of the Arc de Triomphe, Paris

Last year when I returned from Iceland, I thought what could exceed this wonderful trip. Well, now I know. Eva, you outdid yourself in planning this year’s expedition for me and several of my friends. What could be better than Paris in the fall — well, how about cruising on the Seine.  What a great trip.  

From the boutique hotel you arranged for right in the middle of all the Paris excitement to the wonderful guide who so capably showed us all the highlights of that magnificent city, then onto the cruise on Ama Waterways.  What a ship and crew, who were so welcoming, tending to all our needs and requests in such a friendly manner.  Each day trip was so well organized and enjoyable, as well. 

I also greatly appreciate the food arrangements you made for me.  The cordial maître d’ was so attentive and came to my table at every meal checking to see that I was being well taken care of.  Also I just want to mention the arrangements you made for someone to meet us at the Paris Airport, so that we were able to get through security quickly, without any hassles or waiting on long lines.  

I could go on and on about all the wonderful and fun things that occurred, but I mainly want to thank you so much for your precise planning to make these trip such fabulous experiences, and I greatly look forward for what you will be planning for me and my friends for next year’s excursion.

We loved it!!

The hotel staff was awesome, so friendly and helpful, food was great, we only left the resort once for food. I thought that the security guards on the beach were excellent and really looked out for the guests. I would go back there in a heartbeat! I have already recommended you to my friends.

Negril, Jamaica vacation with teenage daughter - June 2018

Eva helped book us an amazing trip to Aruba for our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary celebration.  We had an amazing time, had great meals, she was extremely helpful and knowledgable throughout the process.  Definitely made some lasting memories…our kids keep asking when we are going back and say it was the best trip ever!
Thanks a million!

Aruba 50th Anniversary Multigenerational Vacation

This is one hard working woman right here. You tell her what it is that you’re looking for and she will have it all together for you to review while asking questions along the way to make sure everything is exactly how you want it when it comes to your travels. Great customer service. Polite, attentive and very knowledgeable on traveling and just a real pleasure to be able to work with to plan our honeymoon. One word that comes to mind from when I first reached out to Eva all the way to our trip being done and booked, that word is amazing.

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!!

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.

Saint Barth birthday trip, December 2017

Eva at Epic Experiences did an amazing job booking everything from A to Z for our family vacation to Mexico.  Eva, the travel agent knew everything about  the hotels in Mexico and directed us to an amazing  place with Dreams resorts.  The hotel and the flights all ran smoothly with no issues.  The beaches at the resort were just as Eva described it and my kids had a blast at the pool.  The best part was that Eva was in constant contact with my wife and any concerns we had got immediately addressed. We were worried that traveling with 3 little kids would be difficult and Eva made sure that our crib was delivered to the hotel room and that we had a microwave to heat the baby’s milk when we got to the room.  That kind of attention to detail is overlooked by most but Eva made us feel like we were her own VIP clients. 

I will gladly use Eva again for all our future travels.  Like I said…Amazing.

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!

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!

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!

Glacier in Iceland

Beverly and Harriet at the glacier

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.

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!

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.

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!

Family party at Ireland's Bushmills Distillery

Steve, Dillon, Maureen at 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.

Self drive CIE Tour family vacation in Ireland, August 2016

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.

Riviera Maya vacation, August 2016

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.

Riviera Maya Destination Wedding April 2016

Amanda Hufford Police's Destination Wedding

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.

Sid and Monica in Mexico

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!

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!
