After booking online vacations for years, I decided to try Talavera Travel Agency based on a friend’s referral. This turned out to be the be one of the best decisions ever! It all started with an inquiry of where to go for an all-inclusive adult resort in Cancun. Her guidance and suggestions were “spot on”. Linda handled everything from flight, to transfer from the airport, accommodations, pre-arrival dinner reservations, food allergy concerns and even extra “surprises”. Everything was on one itinerary that included detailed descriptions and instructions including where to meet our driver at the airport, what their uniform would look like and what type of car they would be driving. The resort, amenities and service were amazing, and the food was fabulous! Linda was our resort ambassador. She checked in with us via text message throughout our stay to answer questions, check on dinner reservations, and make sure we were getting everything we needed. We are looking forward our trip this fall that she has planned for us!

"Linda has made our travel process smooth, seamless, and stress free!
From transportation, accommodations and special experiences, she helps create memories that last a lifetime. Traveling out of the country with a large group can be challenging, but having Linda plan our group travel has taken the stress out of our journey and helped us relax and enjoy the adventure! Linda, thank you for all of your help in creating my 50th birthday celebration! It was fabulous! No matter what trip you plan for us, whether it be our family, couples' getaways or our group travel, I know every aspect of the trip will be amazing. This birthday trip was no exception. Know how much you are appreciated.

"Linda has been fabulous to work with for our group travel adventures!
We love to travel, taking 1-2 big trips a year, and a few small ones in between. She is great for booking group trips too, as we usually travel with friends. What we love about Linda is how responsive she is. If at any point we have to call her due to a flight delay or missed flight, or even needing assistance with making a dinner reservation she responds almost immediately. I can’t tell you how helpful this is.
Linda has always been instrumental in helping us find the best hotels, locations and flights. Especially now, she takes the time to deal with the multiple flight changes inflicted upon us since Covid-19, saving us from spending hours on the phone. This last vacation, we were surprised with a gift from Linda- a bottle of tequila and edible shot glasses in our room when we arrived! We can’t express to you the value in using her services, the experience is just priceless. Thank you Linda. Cheers!
