I’m in shock.. I’m in total disbelief! I don’t deserve this!

I really can’t thank you enough! You already spoil me with how calm and soothing I get when you call, like I say “you are like yoga in my ears!” but this gift and your kind, thoughtful words is out of this world!!

I’m near tears.. you are always so genuinely kind, and supportive to me, You make me LOVE MY JOB. Its so hard to not sound so gushy, but it’s the only emotion that I’m feeling right now!

Thank you for making me smile during these crazy tough times, as always I hope you know I will always take care of you!

anything you ever, ever, ever need Kathy!

Dear Kathy,

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your assistance on Monday with my urgent request for a ticket. I arrived just in time, one day before the border of my island closed its doors. I had a wonderful trip in First Class, and I wonder how will I ever travel any differently in the future?
Thank you ever so much.
I hope you were able to help your other clients who were stranded abroad.
Thanks again, and all my best wishes for this coming period.
Kind regards,

Morning Kathy,

Thank you for thinking of us……you are amazing and traveling to a foreign land with your help is the only way to go. EVERYTHING was like “clock work” with all the flights and connections and your notes  were tremendous in alleviating stress and worry……

Thank you very much……lois & mark

Hi, Kathy,

Well, we are back in our places after a great trip….thx to Captivating Journeys.
Our stay at the elegant Royal Hawaiian was, as always, very enjoyable….lots of Royal treatment and our room was perfect….great view.
It was Marlene’s first visit to the islands, so we had picked the three quite different but unique locations, and the entire trip worked out just as we had hoped. Who knows, maybe someday we will squeeze out another trip to Paradise.
Thanks again for everything, and especially for what I expect was a bit of your special attention.

Best Regards,
Darlene, Marlene and Jim

Finding Kathy was a gift! My husband and I were excited to be getting married in Maui but had no idea where to stay or even where to begin. Once we got in contact with Kathy our minds were at ease. She heard all of our requests, handled us with grace and surpassed our expectations. Our experience in Maui was beyond amazing it was one of our best trips yet! Everyone there is so nice, our Resort was beautiful and all of our needs were met with professionalism. Mahalo Kathy

Much love,
Ed & Adina

I call Kathy the “travel miracle worker.” She has been handling my travel arrangements for decades and I wouldn’t think of traveling without using her services. She is professional, thorough, CALM, and readily available when something goes awry. She works tirelessly for her clients. Yes, you can “do it yourself” but “it” will never be as good as working with a professional as fabulous as Kathy. She WILL turn your vacation dreams into dream vacations. – Bonnie Friedman

Traveling from Ohio to Maui for my honeymoon was made easy working with Captivating Journeys! Tina was wonderful and I cannot wait to plan another vacation! She spent extra time making sure each detail was perfect! Without a doubt 5/5 stars!

Aloha Kathy, I want to thank you for assisting me with my African Photo Safari and all pertinent information necessary for the trip. Trips requiring 5 or 6 flights each way and a 13 hour time change area bit too complicated for me. You took on the whole project for me and I have to honestly say every aspect of my trip was covered by you from my multiple plane reservations to co-ordinating with the Safari Tour Company to a perfect itinerary of everything. In all ways a wonderful adventure, photographic opportunity, and memory that as a result of your knowledge and expertise couldn’t have worked out better.

Mahalo, Ned

Hi Tina, I just wanted to send you a quick “thank you” for everything you did for us. Our guests were quite pleased with everything and had wonderful things to say about working with you. The wedding turned out beautiful! More than we could have imagined 🙂 Karma Hill did a great job and we are so happy. We are just waiting for the final pictures. We are hoping to get back next year to celebrate our one year anniversary. If you have an email list service, please add me to your list. We would love to hear about any great deals. My guess is that we would go back to Maui and the Big Island next time.

Thanks again,
Lindsey Schreckengost


Several years ago you assisted us with our international airfares to London , after I told you that we had booked a cruise with Crystal Cruises through a “cruise specialist”. It was during that conversation that I realized that this was something you could do for us as well, so I cancelled the original booking and re booked the cruise through you!!! That ended up being the best decision I had made regarding our trip!!!! Every detail of our trip was so well planned out, including having a car and driver waiting for us when we returned to England from our cruise. Your service has always been meticulous and our experiences with you nothing but the best. I never hesitate to recommend your company to all of my friends and acquaintances.

We are HUGE fans!!!!
