I cannot say enough great things about Destination Affairs! Both Kristin and Avery were absolutely amazing to work with and Kristin genuinely cares about each of her clients. My new husband and I were not sure where exactly we wanted to go on our honeymoon and gave her only two things we wanted—to visit Lake Como and eat great food. Kristin came up with two totally different itineraries incorporating both things we requested. We were able to work with her to craft the perfect honeymoon! The planning process was very smooth and we felt completely prepared as we took off for our honeymoon. The accommodations that Kristin picked for us were outstanding!! It seemed like each hotel we visited was nicer than the last, and we ended up eating at three Michelin starred restaurants three days in a row!! Staying at the Hotel des Berges and eating at L’Auberge De I’lll was an experience of a lifetime and we are so thankful that Kristin booked it for us. We took a wine tour of the Alsace region that couldn’t have been better, and Avery worked with the company to customize an experience especially for us. We will absolutely use Destination Affairs for any future trips we take!

Kristin was amazing to work with. She helped us select amazing hotels, restaurants, and excursions in the Amalfi Coast. At the onset she gave us a lot of great options to make sure we could find hotels in our budget. She was very low key and did not pressure us into the trip.

In addition - she was in touch throughout the trip and was able to help us along the way.

She was very hands on. The wedding planning took up so much time that it was really key to have someone that was so helpful to make sure that our trip came out great.

We are planning to use Destination Affairs on another trip. If you want to have a great honey moon this is the way to go.

Thanks,

Greg and Lauren

We are thrilled that we booked our honeymoon through Destination Affairs. Kristin guided us through the whole process--from deciding where to go and stay to making reservations and developing a daily itinerary. She was extremely flexible with our ever changing requests and helped alleviate the stress of planning a multi-country international trip. We stayed at 4 different hotels and each one was truly spectacular. We had a wonderful experience and would recommend Destination Affairs to anyone.

Kristin is simply the best in the business! She spent over two years planning the most AMAZING, fabulous, luxurious, and somehow still economical honeymoon! She works so incredibly hard for her clients, is dependable, personable, SO RESPONSIVE, and really gets her clients!
Kristin really seemed to understand all of the stresses and decisions that go along with wedding planning, and did everything in her power to remove those same stresses and decisions from the honeymoon planning process! She took the time to come to our home, meet us, and get an idea of what would be the perfect honeymoon for us! After the meeting she gave us a personalized list of a few destinations she thought would be perfect for us, along with reasons why. From the very first moment of our African safari to the day long wine tours in the South African wine country, to the most amazing beach vacation on a tiny, little known island in the Indian Ocean, it was truly the trip of a lifetime. Every detail was perfectly planned out by Destination Affairs, and our transportation, accommodations, tour bookings and even dinner reservations were taken care of by Kristin and her team for the entire 3 weeks. Kristin's selections for everything were simply AMAZING, luxurious, over the top, perfectly suited for our taste, and yet somehow still within our budget, it was completely mind-blowing. It seemed like every new restaurant, hotel room, or tour was the best we'd ever been to, we had to keep revising our 'favorite' list as it seemed to change with each new experience she had planned for us. And when a small hiccup did arise during travel and she was on the phone and accessible at 5am to help us deal with it. I highly, highly recommend Destination Affairs and Kristin Chambers for all of your vacation and honeymoon planning! I know she will be our travel agent for life!

We highly recommend Kristin for a destination wedding. My husband and I were pleased with how everything turned out with our Caribbean dream wedding and honeymoon. Kristin made it all happen, the resorts services was perfect and all our guests were happy too. We couldn't have done it without her, she made all the difference. Highly recommend, 5 stars, we would give 10 stars if we could. Thanks Kristin! (From Jim and Lynee )

Kristen did an amazing job on our destination wedding! She was so helpful with both families, even though they were not easy to deal with. We had some issues with the Beloved Hotel in playa mujeres and she has been on top of everything! We would recommend her services to anyone looking for a great coordinator for their wedding!

My new wife and I cant recommend or thank Kristin enough. We both wanted different things for our honeymoon and our guests when it came to a destination wedding. She worked with Lauren for hours and days to pull plans together so that everyone could be there with us on our big day. Kristin made it all possible and came up with ideas we never thought of. She worked out everything with the hotel and she also arranged for us to have an event planner so the hotel didn't miss anything. It all worked out great. I would never have believed that so much goes in to planning a destination wedding but there is and Kristin pulled it all off for us, I was shocked but most of all happy. we couldn't have done it with her. Thanks Kristin, for all your time and effort on our behalf.

After months of wedding planning, when it came time to plan our honeymoon, my husband and I were out of steam! We wanted a fantastic escape to Fiji but didn’t even know where to begin. Thank goodness for Kristin at Destination Affairs! Kristin helped us plan the most romantic getaway to a true paradise! We wanted something unique and intimate. Kristin delivered! We ended up booking a gorgeous over water bure on a private boutique property that felt intimate and luxurious. From the white beaches to the lush tropical scenery, to the unparalleled attention to detail, our experience was beyond our expectations! Kristin handled absolutely everything and the trip was amazing! We would recommend Destination Affairs to anyone looking for a unique and unforgettable travel experience.

PHENOMINAL SERVICE!!

I highly recommend Kristin / Destination Affairs!!! Our experience was beyond positive!!!

Unfortunately the worst-case scenario happened for us on our honeymoon to Tahiti and our luggage was lost in route. Being literally in the middle of nowhere it seemed impossible for us to track down our luggage. With one call to Kristin, she was on it!!! She was calling the airlines every few hours to get an update, which allowed us to enjoy our honeymoon knowing she was doing everything she possibly could to get our luggage delivered. The airline was saying they couldn’t deliver our luggage for 5 days, but with Kristin’s persistence she was able to get it to us in 3 days. Now that we are back, she has offered to write a letter to the airlines on our behalf and work with our insurance to get expenses reimbursed. I don’t think this stuff is in her job description… Kristin is AMAZING!!

One of the most difficult things I found during the wedding planning process was trying to find the time to coordinate with all the vendors, but Kristin made that easy. She always made herself available when it was convenient for us, which was usually nights and weekends. We had such a hard time deciding where our perfect honeymoon would be…. So we probably were not the easiest clients to deal with☺ However, Kristin was very patient with us and provided us lots of options to choose from. Her communication was always timely and her emails were so detailed that it was easy for us to comb through everything.

Whenever I ask someone’s opinion about a restaurant, vacation, service, ect… I always ask them if they would do/use it again. That answer for me is ABSOLUTELY!! I can’t wait for Kristin / Destination Affairs to book our next vacation!!

Kristin with Destination Affairs was awesome to work with! She booked our honeymoon to Rome and the Greek Islands. Like others said, she was extremely efficient and responsive. She returned phone calls and emails quickly throughout the whole process. The hotels that she recommended were amazing! It was so nice to have someone to make recommendations and oversee the whole trip. She booked our flights, hotels, car transfers, and ferry tickets. While we were away, we wanted to change one of our flights, and she emailed me right back and was on the phone with the airlines taking care of it. If we didn't have her helping, it would have been so hard (and an expensive phone call) for us to do while we were there. We can't wait to use her services again on another trip!
