About AQUA & EARTH TRAVEL
At Aqua & Earth Travel we offer professional but down-to-earth, personalized travel planning services. Customizing your trip to your interests and needs to help create the most memorable trip that you can’t wait to share with everyone.
You will work with a personal travel advisor (the new term we use for Travel Agents these days) not a salesperson, so they can help ease the stress and streamline your planning process. With your Travel Advisor’s knowledge, expertise, customer service and our PLAN, BOOK, ENJOY service, they will help you every step of the way with options, suggestions, and solidification of your reservations to ensure it all comes together so you can relax and enjoy.
We offer exceptional customer service that you can count on and our suppliers (cruises, tours, resorts, etc.) are reputable in the travel industry. Aqua & Earth Travel was established in 2010 with over 20 years of event planning & travel experience.
Please remember, Travel Advisors do not get paid by suppliers until after you travel. So planning fees are necessary to keep our business going. We do not get paid when travelers decide not to take their trip after planning has commenced.
