Dream Honeymoon on The Big Island

This was the best honeymoon trip you could have ever set up for us. We didn't want to leave. You and your company are the very best at what you do, and I want to thank you for all of the great insight you provided for my wife and I. I tell all of my friends about you guys, and that the smart move is to go with Lance or Keo, they will put you on an unforgettable Aloha experience We did so much there, even setting ourselves up with a real estate agent to purchase some property in Kona. Thank You~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dream Vacation to Kaua‘i

"Aloha Lance, Just wanted to let you know how much we truly appreciate your time and hard work in order to make our dream vacation come true.
This was our 2nd trip to Hawaii, and with your help we were never disappointed.  When ever we called for help, you were always there.  You found the Best Deal we could afford, otherwise we probably would have never gotten a chance to see Hawaii at all.
You are the Best Travel Agent in the whole world!
Thank you for everything...Aloha from the Talai Family."

"Thank you so much for all the work you put into making my mother and brother's trip to Hawaii so special. They had an absolutely fantastic time, though my brother ended up not bringing enough pain medication, and this made the end of the trip a little rough. Frank has a hard time sleeping, and would text me from the beach at 3am and say he was out there just enjoying the waves and the beautiful climate. I think this quiet time alone was well worth the effort we made to get them there--it was the trip of a lifetime. On Hawaii, your home, my mother learned from the hotel service personnel about the mountain road that cuts through the island instead of going around the coast, and she and Frank took this road on their way to the helicopter ride, which they also loved. 
If Frank lives another month or three, he will always remember the trip we planned. My mother has thanked me separately and told me of all the fun she and Frank had exploring Honolulu, and on Hawaii with the car.
You carefully arranged all the details of a visit for an elderly and sick person in mind, and were sympathetic to the roller coaster of emotions I was going through in making this trip happen. In the event any friends are planning a trip I will not hesitate to give them your name.
Thanks again for your wonderful assistance.
Diane"

Family Dream Vacation to Maui
 

"I know that I speak for the entire family when I say "Wow" and "Thank you so much". You are most amazing and what memories you helped create for our family ! We were so pleasantly shocked and wide-eyed when we arrived at our destination, one that you helped to happen in such a short period of time. You worked tirelessly and perseverated in finding the absolute best of the best for our family to be together to share in such wonderful times. We will forever be grateful to you for your advice, your wisdom, your attention to the smallest details, to ensure that we all had a smooth, delightful and momentous trip to Hawaii.

Our suite was unbelievable, we will continue to talk about how gorgeous it was and the view, oh, no words to describe this trip and the accommodations. We were surprised, continuously, by the lengths that you went to make sure that our trip was perfect. We owe this all to you, you came through for all of us, the airline, the origami,( what a beautiful and meaningful touch) and the resort, truly amazing. As are you, Lance, thank you is not enough for all the you did for us. You became a part of our family throughout that trip, you will never know how much all of your hard work and caring meant to all of us. Aloha and Mahalo.

Thank you, thank you , thank you !
From the Entire Neally Clan !"

The Engen Family
Family Vacation Minneapolis to Oahu
"You recently helped us book a trip to Hawaii.  Just tought I'd drop you a quick note to tell you we had a great time.  Altough the room for us was not yet ready when we arrived at the Aston Waikiki Sunset, they quicky upgraded us to two one-bedroom condos...this was fine since we had six people. 
We had a great time - snorkeling, whale watching, Polynesian Culteral Center, hiking to waterfalls, Daimond Head, etc.
Thanks again for your help and advice. 
Aloha"

Steve & Cindy Cortright
10th Anniversary in Waikiki

"Aloha…                                                                                             
Just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a GREAT vacation we had in Oahu!! I mean everything form the “park and fly” Crowne Plaza Hotel near LAX, to the seat assignments on our flight, to the transportation to and from the airport in Los Angeles and Hawaii, along with everything else you had arranged for us was outstanding, and just what you had promised!! Cindy had made all of the arrangements through you, and I tend to be a “worrier”, but your attention to detail put my worries to rest!! The hotel was absolutely terrific and the views were more than we had imagined!! The Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel location was great!! It was close to “The Bus” lines, car rental agencies, many restaurants, (that we also enjoyed), and best of all…the beautiful Waikiki beach!! Bottom line…we had a GREAT time celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in Hawaii!!
We will definitely be returning some day, and we will definitely ask you to help us plan our next trip!!
Mahalo!"

"I booked my Hawaiian vacation with Hawaii Express.  The moment I contacted them with my reservation they went to work making sure my vacation was going to be the best possible experience.  I received great information before I left about what to see and do.  They made sure the view from our hotel room was just what we wanted.
From the personalized service at the airport to all the many wonderful places they arranged for us to go, ours was the vacation of a lifetime.  I will book my next vacation through Hawaii Express and will recommend all my friends to do the same.  Hawaii Express made my birthday a memorable one."

Your knowledge of the travel business, courtesy, excellent customer service and level of professionalism should be the standard at which the bar should be set.

"My husband and I booked a cruise with Lance in January of this new year for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Lance had up-graded our accomodations not onlt at the hotel near LAX prior to arriving in Hawaii, but also at the hotel in Hawaii before the cruise.. This was the first time we had a travel company go above and beyond our expectations and it was fabulous.
Thank you for a great and memorable anniversary."

Every time we travel we will definitely contact Hawaii Express and also recommend them to all our friends & family."
Thanks again,

Also, we have never had service such as we recieved on this trip - from airplane seating to dinner and acitivity reservations our agent did it all. I even called on Sunday when we were poolside to change our reservations.
Mahalo Hawaii Express! We will be back!"

Mr. & Mrs. Leon Uyeda
Unforgettable Vacation

"My wife & I have traveled throughout the world for the past 30 years & this is the first time I am writing an unsolicited commendation for a travel company. From our initial contact until the end of our trip to Hawaii. Our personal agent/concierge took it upon himself to call us to inquire how things were going & if we needed any further assistance. Also, very thorough, responsible & perceptive in sensing anxieties as travelers are apt to be. I have never had an agent so willing to talk & listen to our concerns so patiently. Our concierge is one staff member who is a true credit to your organization & who daily promotes your purpose & goal to the outside world."
Sincerely yours,
Mr. & Mrs. Leon Uyeda

The Schraeder Family
Big Island Family Vacation

"We wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did planning our
vacation to the Big Island. What a great deal you found for us, and without sacrificing comfort or convenience. Our flight flew directly from L.A. to Kona, and we encountered absolutely no problems or delays. Our accommodations were perfect for the five of us. One of the staff members even let my children help feed the koi fish in the resorts ponds. Most importantly, the level of service you offered was beyond anything I've encountered. You generously shared your vast understanding of the island, spending over an hour with me helping me to prioritize what we should see and do, and revealing the hidden treasures of the island not often mentioned in guide books. For example, you gave specific directions to that secret beach with the rocky outcropping to see sea turtles. We found the amazing beach and saw three turtles, which made my 12-year-old son's day. You counseled us on when and where to book reservations for snorkeling and other sightseeing trips, and how to make our trip as cost-efficient as possible, while still experiencing what mattered most to us. Thank you for planning an amazing vacation for us. We hope to return to Hawaii in the near future, and when we do, we will definitely call you!"
Aloha!
The Schraeder Family

43rd Wedding Anniversary
"We would like to thank you for arranging the fantastic trip to Honolulu, Hawaii. Our Park & Fly Hotel in SFO was very good, the location was excellent - with shuttle service every 30 minutes, very convenient too.  The seats you arranged for us were very good and the stewardess even gave us a bottle of wine when I told her we were celebrating our anniversary.  The rental car was great and the hotel in Waikiki was very well located to, the walk to the beach was very short. Hotel personnel were very helpful and accommodating. We left Honolulu full of good memories. Thank you for making our trip so memorable. It was kind of you to arrange everything for us. We appreciate everything you did very much. We will call you again very soon."

Words cannot express our appreciation. Our room upgrade was glorious - ocean view with coffee each morning - heaven!
The flight and transfers were smooth and stressless. We appreciated the calls and enjoyed bringing you into our family via phone. The personal touch and professional service you provided made the trip! We felt confident in you and knew we could call with any question, concern, or to share a moment of utter joy with you. The kiss of the waves, the gentle tradewind breeze, and the warm turquoise waters reminded us we were truly in paradise.
If you get another great deal - let us know! We're a big family of 15+... and love to traveltogether!"

You have our family's business always. Thank You." Robert & Marie Slone
