What People are Saying about Epic Experiences:
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.
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.
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 the 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.
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.
Our time in Venice was unforgettable. I am glad we did not plan anything. It was nice to be able to relax and explore.
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!
Thank you for everything you did and tailoring the trip to meet our needs perfectly. We wouldn’t have changed a thing!!
Just returned from a trip to Egypt arranged by Eva. It was a 70 year bucket list voyage!
Everything was perfectly planned. Thank you Eva for encouraging me to go and arranging the most fantastic trip!!!
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!
Hi thank you for everything! I hope you are getting rest now! I appreciate all the effort you put into making our trip as good as it was.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. Everything was fabulous. I will give you a detailed breakdown of our vacation and where we went when I get up for air. I will try and get it to you by tomorrow-I miss it already.
Thank you again for everything that you have done planning the trip and I look forward to sending lots of other people your way. A lot of people certainly reached out and asked about the trip and I will make sure to pass YOUR NAME ALONG TO ANYONE WHO IS TRAVELING IN THE FUTURE.
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.
Eva planned the perfect custom trip for us! She spent time talking with us, learning about our preferences and planned our route, accommodations and wine tour guides. Eva’s attention to detail ensured a flawless travel experience. I would highly recommend Eva!
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!!
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!
Eva was very helpful in all stages of our trip. She helped us decide on a destination, arranged the rental car and picked excellent hotel choices for our small group. We would highly recommend her. Can’t wait to book future travel!
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.
True professional from start to finish. First time I used a travel agent and was not disappointed. She monitored our trip from beginning to end!
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!
Eva is nothing but fantastic. Second time working with her and she is so efficient and professional with all details with our travel.
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.
Eva recently booked a last minute Florida vacation for me and my family and was fabulous as usual.
She went above and beyond to find me a place that our specifications and then followed up with the property to ensure things were as requested.
Great experience and service!
We have been working with Eva for years and she is truly an expert on St. Barts. With Covid, we experienced some challenges in planning and Eva quickly stepped in to save the day. Thank you Eva! We love you!
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!
We all had a great time. The hotels were beautiful. Everything you planned worked out great. The weather was perfect. So all in all a great trip. Bev was very happy to be with everyone. Thanks for all your hard work.
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!
Thank you for everything!! We had an amazing time!!!!
The cruise was fantastic! Weather was beautiful on excursion days so that worked out well. We did see whales on our excursion and then a couple on the ship heading home.
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!
Thanks so much!
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.
Eva, the girls and I had a FABULOUS time in Paris!! Loved it! Loved the hotel you set us up in—awesome to stay in Le Marais—garden facing room that was nice and quiet—people were great—perfect size for the 3 of us!
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!
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!!
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.
Eva, thanks so much for putting together the best vacation!! We would do it all over again just the same way!!
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
