Our WW2017 group to Edinburgh has now arrived back home. Liza and Cheri from Travel Haus escorted this group of 38 ladies as together they had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful city of Edinburgh as well as the breathtaking country of Scotland. On the day of arrival they did a panoramic bus tour of the city of Edinburgh and ended with touring the Edinburgh Castle in time to experience the daily firing of the cannon at 1pm.
Day 2, 20 of us ventured out on a bus tour through the Highlands including a stop at Loch Ness where we explored Urquat Castle and then enjoyed a boat ride across the lake. Unfortunately we cannot report any sightings of Nessie. 😉 It was a wonderful day!
Day 3, a group of 18 did an excursion to Rosslyn Chapel and the Borders. We stopped at Rosslyn Chapel, Melrose Abbey, Scott's View and Jedburgh Abbey. We again had great weather and the views were magnificent!
On our last day, 24 ladies got a "Behind the Ropes" private tour of Holyrood Palace and then enjoyed The Scotch Whiskey Experience. We had some free time in the afternoon to do some further exploring and souvenir shopping before we headed out to our Spirit of Scotland dinner.
Travel Agent Sense - this will be the first in a series of posts that we will share with our valued readers and clients. One of the things that sets Travel Haus apart from booking on your own and even some other agencies is that we often meet with the tour companies and our agents get trained on the latest updates and news. We have REAL relationships and contacts!
This past week, Jen Palko with Apple Vacations was in our office and here are some of the highlights of her visit with us.
She gave us an update on the various Caribbean islands and where they’re at in recovery from hurricanes. Apple supports several causes that contribute 100% directly to those in need. The Mexico and Punta Cana resorts are still open to guests and some beaches actually got WIDER after the storms. Ie: Beach at Secrets Capri got significantly wider. More beach sounds good to us! :)

Welcome to Dreams Rivera Cancun. This is also a beautiful resort. Very kid friendly. Has a pool for the kids. They are going to be building a small slide for the kids section. This is a very upscale family resort. They have 14 different room categories. Some of them have their own plunge pools (bigger then normal plunge pools ) a lot of families get them for their kids to swim. Staff is wonderful and always there to assist you! I would recommend this for adults and families. There is also a restaurant for adults only. Their infinity pool is gorgeous!
This is excellence Rivera Cancun. This is adults only. This is beautiful! It has 9 pools and 9 restaurants. The main lobby is air conditioned, which you don’t see in many different hotels. Excellence club is very quiet and has certain places for club members only. It was a very peaceful environment and I would deff recommend it for adult getaway for honeymoons or anniversary’s. There are activities daily for all. The pools are fantastic! And rooms I have to say are my favorite! The landscape of this place is well taken care of. - Brittany (from Mexico)
