Happy very wonderful clients from Virginia, family of 3, first time to Hawaii, Maui, Big Island, Hyatt Regency Maui & Hapuna Prince, swam with dolphins

Aloha Melissa,

I want to let you know how much I enjoyed the trip to Maui and the Big Island that you arranged for me and my kids.  We all enjoyed the experience.  The hotels you booked were perfect.  The excursions you recommended were amazing.  My kids favorite activity was surfing.  We loved the lesson you arranged at Goofy Foot so much that we back for a second day.  My favorite experience was swimming with the dolphins via Sunlight on Water.  I actually went out two days in a row to see the dolphins. I am already thinking about how soon I can get back to Hawaii so I am sure you will hear from me again.

Thanks again for all your fine work.

NOTE:  Since they came to Maui I was able to meet them at the airport upon arrival.  This is a very special part of what I do!   They enjoyed the Hyatt Regency Maui and the Hapuna Prince

Fiji Islands: 30th Anniversary from Georgia to Taveuni Island Resort & Wadigi Private Island

Thank you so much for arranging an awesome 30th anniversary vacation for us.   We travel frequently but your intimate knowledge an expert recommendations resulted 
in one of our best vacations ever.   Taveuni Island Resort was wonderful.  We felt like we were at a family ranch.   Do and Rick were so welcoming and the staff made our anniversary so special.  Manta rays, hiking to the waterfalls & snorkeling were great along with the food and the accommodations. We would highly recommend this resort.
Then there was Wadigi island. WOW!!!
The place, the food and the surroundings were perfect. Did we mention the staff? Well they cannot be surpassed. They truly made it an experience of a lifetime. 
We felt like we were leaving family and that was just after spending four days there! Thank you so much Melissa for encouraging us to make that choice. It was 
truly magical.  
Again, thank you Melissa for all of our arrangements. You were so easy and wonderful to talk to. You truly understood what we needed and wanted and you delivered!       We hope our paths cross one day!
Joane and Joel 

NOTE:  I'm not sure how I am so blessed with such wonderful clients!   I love anniversaries. It's a joyous celebration of the time couples spend together.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE honeymoons too!  Maybe it's just being in love with love?

10th Anniversary to Fiji, Taveuni Island Resort. Swept away

Bula Melissa!

I hope you're doing well, we are now home and off to get the holidays started!  I can't begin to tell you what an incredible time we had at Taveuni Island Resort.  Amazing place, amazing people, it was truly wonderful and everything I had hoped for.  We relaxed and we did a few activities and our surroundings were breathtaking, the people in Fiji impressed us with their kindness and warmth.  Do & Ric were so gracious and nice as well as their staff.  We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay with them!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Great Job Melissa!  I hope to meet you in the near future, I know we will be in Maui some time soon!

NOTE:  Sonia & Ron are return clients of McCoy.   Sonia wanted an experience out of the ordinary (as most of the resorts are in Fiji!).  After spending time with her in a 'therapy session' :), and review of a few resorts, Taveuni Island Resort captured their attention.  We got it right!  Vinaka to Do & Rick, pioneers in Fiji, with the first dive resort (and second resort) in the northern islands, way back in the 1960's.  Their story is a fantastic one.  Originally from New Zealand, they live full time on Taveuni and the resort is a family run business.

Sid & Mary from Maryland, 3 weeks in Tahiti on the Paul Gauguin Cruise and Pearl Resort Overwater Bungalows Moorea & Bora Bora

IaOrana Melissa,

"To everyone who has seen some of the pictures so far developed either Mary or I say to them "we could not have seen that or done that without Melissa McCoy, our wonderful travel agent."  (and now our friend). Again I say that this trip was a dream come true for us.  We could not have seen, done and accomplished what we did without your excellent assistance and direction, and we thank you."

NOTE:  What a complete joy to assist these first time clients of mine with their 'first' trip of a lifetime!  I recommended the cruise to them based on their desires and knowing that the Paul Gauguin is awesome and makes it so easy to really experience more of Tahiti.  It's a perfect combo with a land vacation.  We should be collaborating soon on their next great bucket adventure :)
