“I can’t thank you enough for all your help and hints on Myanmar. It was all very useful and we had an amazing time.” Debbie B.
We did go the restaurant in Ngapali where you had to wade through the water. We also went to Weatherspoons in Bagan..it WAS the place with the best burgers (and they were good!).
“I recently went on a trip of a lifetime to Peru, Machu Picchu.” Cathy D. Toronto, Ontario
I didn’t know where to begin to figure out where I should go so, I reached out to Jane Canapini at GrownupTravels.com, who I knew had been there a few years back. She recommended Andean Discovery tour company who specializes in customized trips to Peru, Equador, Amazon and Galapagos. I am so glad I used this tour company as our trip exceeded our expectations. It was an excellent experience enriched with courteous and knowledgeable local guides. Santiago was my favorite (another recommendation from Jane). He is the local guide for Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. He was extremely knowledgeable on the wildlife, plants (Orchids), and Inca tribal customs and traditions.
This company looked after you from start to finish, never missing any details. They even fixed my sunglasses while I was taking a tour of the monestary in Arequipa! The luxury of being met everywhere and having everything taken care of made the difference.
This was an amazing experience I will treasure forever!!!
“I knew that someday I would fulfill my strong desire to experience a safari.” Jill B. Toronto, Ontario
Once my planning began in earnest I was quickly overwhelmed by all the tips and stories from friends that I had been collecting for years compounded by the number of options on the Internet. To narrow my choices and proceed with confidence I realized the best route would be to focus on the first hand experience I knew that was closest to what I’d want to experience myself – so I contacted Jane at Grownup Travels.
The ‘sweetspot’ of travel for me is buttoned down enough so that transportation and accommodations are secure and to expectation, but with enough rough edges and characters involved that a sense of adventure is still present and some personality shows. I want an itinerary I can personalize to my own tastes and that facilitates a true experience of the place and people I am visiting. Jane’s recommendations led me down a path that resulted in me having an absolutely perfect experience on a trip that was very important to me.
“My husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary by taking a trip to Europe.” Susan J. Toronto, Ontario
We had never travelled [to Europe] before and didn’t know where to look other than guide books. After chatting with Jane, she gave us the recommendation that turned out to be the ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT of our trip. We did not know about the quaint little town of Brugge in Belgium. On Jane’s recommendation we stopped there. Words don’t do it justice. It’s old, it’s beyond beautiful – the waterways, the chocolate stores, the cobblestones, the art, the history, there’s too much to list. If it wasn’t for Jane, I wouldn’t have seen one of the best kept secrets of Europe. Thank you Jane!
