Angelle Cockerham has endorsed your work as Travel Agent – Oahu Master Specialist with OVB at Honeymoons, Inc..

Dear Linda,
I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: “Linda is an EXCELLENT travel agent. Although her specialty is Hawaii she planned out two of the best trips for me. One was a very unique honeymoon. All I told her was I wanted a “Ritz type” hotel and somewhere to go on a chartered BASS fishing trip. She planned everything from picking the location to picking our meals. I would recommend Linda to everyone. After our honeymoon she also helped planned a trip to Las Vegas we went on for a friend’s wedding. Although it was a less extensive trip she still had our room and transportation handled excellently. Thanks Linda!~”

RJ and Christie

Christie and I just wanted to drop you note to say thanks so much for helping us to have a wonderful honeymoon! We had such a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. We are definitely planning on going back, though it may be a while. ^_^ IT was so much fun. And we ate at some great restaurants, and man, the Marriott was as good as you said it was.

We just wanted to thank you so much for your help! So we included a couple pictures that we had taken on the trip!

We did the hike to the green sand beach by the way! And the brewery was one of our favorite restaurants, along with the Canoe House.

Thanks so much for making our honeymoon, wonderful!

Denise Rhodes and Jim Crabtree

Thanks for helping us plan our trip to Hawaii. We had the most wonderful time!

We did so much! On the big island we went on a helicopter ride over volcanoes and waterfalls with Blue Hawaiian, drove to the green sand beach on native land, Punalu’u black sand beach, Volcanoes National Park, 4WD to black sand beach at Waipea, night snorkel with manta rays and Jim even managed to get me to do an ATV tour where we saw more waterfalls and views. At the Sheraton Keahou we got a couples massage, enjoyed the huge breakfast spread every morning and went to their luau. What a beautiful place! The views were spectacular and the grounds were stunning with tropical flowers and trees. 

On Maui, we loved the Royal Lahaina!! The Luau was spectacular! It outshined the one at Sheraton Keahou by far! There was so much food and so delicious! We got front row seating also which made it extra special. The sunset dinner cruise was also fabulous! The food and pina coladas (my favorite) at the hotel was reasonably priced and delicious. The view was wonderful and it is right on the beach. The breeze coming through the lobby and restaurant was very nice. On Maui we did lots of other things as well. We did go to Humuhumnukunukuapua’a at Grand Wailea for our tenth anniversary dinner. It was everything you said it would be! Loved it. We took you up on your suggestion to do the Road to Hana tour and we were so glad that we chose not to drive it ourselves! We took a boat to Molokini and drove to Honolua for snorkeling. Went to the aquarium and spent some time on the beach at the hotel. We had originally planned to do a sunrise and bike ride tour at Haleakala but cancelled that because we were so tired by the end of our trip we just wanted to relax the last day. We saw downtown Lahaina, the huge banyan tree, were the mother of KII and KIII was buried. Jim got a tatoo of a turtle on the back of his shoulder. We had some loco moco and spam specials! We packed so much into our trip.

Thanks again for helping us out with the planning! It made things so much easier for us!! We will recommend you to our friends.

LINDA DANCER is BY FAR the BEST travel agent and wedding coordinator out there! I originally stumbled upon Linda while googling for some wedding help to plan a wedding in Kauai Hawaii and boy did I luck out! I got a hold of Linda and from day 1 she was nothing but helpful, kind, understanding, and patient! Linda first asked me what I had pictured for my dream wedding and I gave her an idea that was all over the map because I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted yet. My only requirement was somewhere grassy near the beach. I was worried because I am a full time student again, and my now husband had an emergency surgery that stole nearly our entire wedding budget, so I wasn’t sure if our dream wedding in Kauai could even happen on such a small budget. Linda told me anything was possible and immediately came back with many affordable suggestions, pictures, ideas, and options. Linda went above and beyond….not only did she suggest a bunch of places, but she contacted ALL of the places I was interested in to see if my wedding on a tight budget could even happen. She worked with all of them, and COMPLETELY took the stress off of me having to do it all! Once we decided on a place, I posted Linda’s information on our wedding website for all of my guests to use for travel accommodations. Linda took care of it all, and EVERY single one of my guests had wonderful things to say about Linda. I will use Linda for LIFE! Although her specialty is weddings and honeymoons, she is the best travel agent out there in my opinion for anything you want to do or anywhere you want to go. Linda doesn’t even cost anything to you as the customer…which is unheard of so what more could you possibly ask for!?? Thanks to Linda my wedding was WAY MORE than I thought it would be, and my vision and dream had certainly come true. I have the most beautiful pictures of any wedding I’ve ever seen thanks to Linda and her expertise in knowing exactly what I had pictured! I cannot thank Linda enough, and I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING negative to say about Linda… she truly is perfect at her job and you will not be disappointed in using Linda Dancer!! Thank You Linda!! XOXO
Hawaii Honeymoon Testimonial

Andrew and Megan

A sincere thank you for the wonderful job you did in arranging our honeymoon trip to Maui.  My wife  and I returned last night, and we had a fantastic time.  We hiked, went to Lanai with the Trilogy tour (maybe the best part for me), spent time in the spa, and of course relaxed in the sun and ate an inordinate amount of food.  You were integral to making this all happen, in such a short amount of time and with such dedication.  Thank you.

Also, it was really nice of you to send us a card and gift at the hotel – it was a very pleasant surprise.

Please let me know if I can be of any help in referring you to others, or in giving positive feedback to your company.  I look forward to working with you on our next getaway.  Best wishes, Andrew

P.S. The club level of the Hyatt was a great suggestion.  The staff there were so friendly, helping us to plan hikes and other things.  We also made use of their great free appetizers, snacks, drinks, and desserts pretty much every day.  If any other of your clients are considering the Hyatt in Maui I hope they decide to go for the club level as well!

Donna Machado

Our wedding was absolutely fabulous!! David at Dreams could not have done a better job!! It was all we thought it would be. The property was gorgeous and well kept and everyone said the ceremony was one of the nicest weddings they had been to.

Thank you so much for all that you did to make this day wonderful!! I will definitely use you again on our next trip!! Take care!

I have known and utilized Linda’s services for over 10 years.  She planned my honeymoon to islands in French Polynesia, has orchestrated multiple Disney World trips for us, planned two cruises, and 3 trips to Sandals/Beaches properties (the last two Beaches trips were within the past 6 months). She is incredibly knowledgeable and has always been able to recommend the best excursions and site seeing options in each area.  We have received upgrades at each Sandals/Beaches property upon arrival and received all of our requests for room locations, etc.  Linda’s experience with the Sandals/Beaches properties and her interaction with the management staff at each location on our behalf has been so helpful.

I recently returned from Jamaica where my step brother was married on property (Beaches – Negril).  They booked through another travel agent and I cannot tell you the number of surprises they had ranging from unexpected expenses related to the wedding, lack of coordination and poorly planned flight connections.  Engaging a Sandals/Beaches expert like Linda would have been beneficial to them.

The best part about Linda though is she is great to work with and provides exceptional service.  I have recommended Linda to numerous friends and family as well.

Donnika Trice

Just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on both Oahu and Maui during our honeymoon!  Oh my, the islands were so beautiful.  On the trip, we were talking about the frequency of when we will keep going back 🙂  We look forward to visiting other islands one day.

There were so many things we enjoyed.  The lei greeting when we arrived was memorable.  The fragrance of the lei lingered in our hotel room for days.  We enjoyed walking and shopping and even stumbled upon a local market in Honolulu.  Pearl Harbor was great, too.  We really enjoyed exploring Maui – just seeing nature.  We didn’t take the road to Hana, but we explored other towns like Paina and Napili (my spellings might be off :).  We really enjoyed the food, too!

Thanks for all of your help and it was great working with you.  Also, thanks for the lovely gifts that greeted us in our rooms.  I think I became addicted to milk chocolate covered macadamia nuts.  I can’t even count how many of those I had (including your gift)!

Tammy Rollins

We were very pleased with how everything turned out — couldn’t have asked for a better wedding or vacation!

Aloha,

Linda has a passion for the islands and I am delighted to have her as part of our Kaua‘i Destination Specialist program.  She works extremely hard to be sure her clients are well-informed about the island, things to do as well as places to stay.  She contacts me if she is ever unsure about any Kaua‘i information, but knows the island very well and I am proud to call her a Kaua‘i Destination Specialist.

Linda will do an excellent job planning your vacation to Hawai‘i.

Please feel free to contact me should you have any additional questions.

Warmest aloha,

I have personally used Linda at Honeymoons, Inc for my travel needs as well I have referred several of my wedding couples to her for their travel and honeymoon needs (Im a wedding planner).  She arranged for my own personal wedding in April, 2003 at The Grande St. Lucia.  My father had just passed away the month prior so she called the General Manager at the resort and informed him of my loss and he in turn upgraded our suite and even walked me down the isle since my father had just passed..(I thought that was way to sweet of a GM).  I was worried w/going to a different country or island to get married and being picky re: flowers etc with my profession but Linda just kept answering all of my endless emails and kept me calm the whole time.

The resort took care of all of my legal stuff for the marriage license since Linda had sent them everything they needed for the island in advance so all we had to do was fly there, chill, soak in the sun, meet w/the onsite coordinator, pick out our wedding flowers (provided for us) and show up for our wedding day on the beach.

Linda pays so much attention to personal detail I would never plan a big trip without her assistance to this day. In fact, she just planned a trip to Alaska for my best friend and a group of 9 others which leave this Saturday. This friend also got married in St. Lucia but at a different resort that Linda arranged. She has arranged trips for me such as: a 14 day stay in Hawaii, several trips to Jamaica and of course St. Lucia. If you want a great agent who REALLY cares and takes time for each client give Linda Dancer a call or email today.  If you have any questions feel free to email me personally.

Linda we had a blast!  You did and excellent job.  Trevar was worried about all the little extras but you added them up precisely.  The club level was a huge money saver when it came to dining out.  The lakeside dinner was AMAZING.  You should get on facebook.  I have TONS of pictures up! Our added bonus was Yamaha had a media event and Trevar got to meet and visit with the Yamaha pro that will be fishing the classic in Feb.

Patty & Dell

“Just returned from Hawaii ( Maui) for our wedding and honeymoon. Or as Linda put it “weddingmoon”.

“Everything was perfect. Linda’s attention to detail was exceptional. I was a little hesitant using an agent over the internet. She kept in close contact via phone and email. I couldn’t have ask for more from a local travel agent.

“I had dates and hotel in mind when I contacted her. Not only did she make my itinerary reality… she beat the price of a popular travel company.

“After working with her, she mentioned she books for “non wedding” vacations as well. And is an expert in Caribbean as well as Hawaii. So we will be using her for our next Caribbean vacation as well. I highly recommend her. When planning a trip of such magnitude, you want peace of mind. Linda will provide this and so much more.”

Sincerely,

Patty & Dell

Jason and Aimee

Hi Linda, we just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful time in Maui.  We appreciate all the work that you did in order for us to enjoy ourselves.  We absolutely loved the Sheraton and snorkeled around Black Rock almost everyday.  We ended up driving around the entire coast of Maui and that is definately one place that both of us cannot wait to return to.  Again, thank you so much.

Jason and Aimee Ragsdale

Susie and Greg

Dear Linda,

Well, Susie and Greg returned from their honeymoon in Kauai and Hawaii last Saturday, 8/30.  Before too much time gets away on me, I needed to let you know how much we appreciated ALL YOUR HARD WORK to make this special time in their lives perfect.

Because of your attention to detail and taking the time to understand their personalities and what would be best for them, they had a WONDERFUL honeymoon.  You really went above and beyond in every way.  All the travel connections, reservations, and special requests went so smoothly!  It was perfect and will be the memory of a lifetime – which is what I wanted.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for an extraordinary experience in Hawaii!

Respectfully,

Hazel Hartbarger

Hi Linda,

I hope this e-mail finds you and your family well and happy. I just wanted to write and thank you for such a wonderful wedding and honeymoon. The weather was beautiful and the ceremony was great and the pictures turned out great. I am going send you one or two in this e/m and then send you some in the mail when we get them all developed.. The resort and people were terrific. We are planning on going back in like Novemeber and at least two or three times a years after that. I loved it. I could live there. Tim and I wanted to say thank you and if there was anything we could ever do for you please let us know anytime day or night. Please stay in touch!

Daniel and Emily

Hi Linda,

Obviously this email is rather late finding you but it seems like once we got back from our trip the holidays just took over our lives and I have not had a chance to come up for air yet.  I just wanted to thank you for all of your help in putting our trip together to Hawaii.  We just had an amazing time and it was everything that I had hoped for and much more!!

The Hawaiian Village is simply amazing and having an ocean view in the Rainbow Tower was icing on the cake.  There are very FEW times that I have made it up for the sunset in my life, but it was not hard to do so with a view like that!!  I feel like we had the perfect mix of lounging around the pool and ocean with driving around the island experiencing different things.  We went up to the North Shore to see the waves after a quick stop at the Dole Plantation and earlier that morning Pearl Harbor which was the highlight for me.  Just being there on December 8th one day after the anniversary was very moving especially after having a grandfather who fought in WWII.  We also drove to the east side of the island and on the way back stopped for snorkeling at Hanauma Bay which I think was Emily’s favorite part and a very close second for me.  Throw in a walk up Diamond Head and I couldn’t have imagined spending a better week with Emily and all we could talk about was when we could go back!!!

Without you I would have been clueless!!! I hope everything is going well for you and thank you again for all of your help!!

“I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you I worked with Linda Dancer to book our vacation in Hawaii.  Linda did an excellent job, we had no problems at all, anything we wanted to know she had all the answers.  I even e-mailed her many times while in Hawaii asking about different things to do and places to eat and she always helped us out. “

“Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful vacation! Thanks so much for helping us plan, everything was perfect.Thanks again Linda.”

Aloha,

Linda Dancer is great. I have know for a long time. I met her on a few FAM trips here on Oahu (that’s where travel agents visit the island to study). She is a master level destination specialist and she has great follow up. A couple days ago her client thought there was a problem with my reservation form. They called Linda with concern because, due to the time change, I was not up. Linda called a few times and emailed me to call her clients right when I got up. I took care of it there was no problem. Most travel agents would not have tried so hard to get a hold of me.

I would recommend her to anyone coming to Hawaii

Hi Linda-

Just a quick note to follow up. We have a fantastic time at Dreams Tulum.

The property was immaculate
The beach was just right for us- not too big, not too small and plenty of shade
Our room was perfect and always spotless
The food in all the restaurants was really good and generally beyond our expectations
The staff was exceptional across the board- friendly, courteous, fast and always with a smile
Any minor issues we had were dealt with immediately and courteously
Apple Tours was great from the time we they met us at the airport to the time we left

All in all, one of the best vacations we’ve ever had. We are already talking about what we want to do next year. We have a time share that is part of the Interval network and we have some use it or lose it time saved up. If we can;t find a place within the interval network that seems equal or better than Dreams Tulum, we may even consider just losing the time so that we can go back to Dreams!

As we figure out what we want to do next I’ll be in touch.

Thanks for everything.

Best,
Steve

Daniel Sharp

Hi Linda,

I wanted to thank you for all of your help making arrangements for our honeymoon. It was amazing. We loved all of the hotels – The Westin Maui offered us the resort feel right on the beach that we wanted. The Makena resort offered us a similar feel in a wonderful part of the island. We loved being close to snorkel charters and one of the best snorkel beaches in Maui. We also loved the free snacks that they provided! Thanks for that!

The Westin Princeville gave us more of an apartment feel while allowing us to explore the Hanelei area (which we loved – It might be my favorite town in Hawaii). And the Courtyard Kauai at Coconut Beach was the perfect hotel for our last few nights in town.

It was really a pleasure to work with you in the planning phases; it felt like we were able to lay out in broad strokes what we were looking for, and you came back with suggestions that were perfect.

Thanks,
Dan
