We have been using Marisa Cole’s travel services for the past 22 years. She is unique in that she offers personalized service with home visits to assist in planning your trips. We have used Marisa for pleasure vacations and emergency trips and she has always come through. We have enjoyed all the varied trips we have planned with Sensational Travel.

Marisa has been my travel agent for many years. As a result she knows what I like, want, need and expect in order to have a great vacation. I like the personal contact I have by using a travel agent, which is something one doesn’t get if booking travel via the internet. I plan to continue to use Marisa & Sensational Travel as my travel agent for many years to come!

Grateful for the efficient and timely service!
Having Marisa help us with this trip made it much more enjoyable. She was key in arranging a number of our day activities and excursions—as well as the flights and accommodations. She was in frequent touch with the resort to confirm everything was set for our arrival. It was a treat to deal with a person who cares—and not just rely on computers and phone messages. Marisa genuinely loves what she does and it shows in the service she delivers. We had an amazing trip and are thankful for Marisa’s efforts!!

We have been calling on Marisa for our travel needs for the past eight years. She is wonderful! She always comes up with some great ideas for our family of 5 and she always finds great accommodations. Most importantly, she listens to her customers and is sensitive to their individual needs and wants. We just went on a family tour to Grand Canyon and other fantastic attractions in August 2006, and it was one of the best trips we had been on. Marisa is the agent who found and recommended the tour.

Marisa has been very helpful in planning our honeymoon to Hawaii. As we have been busy planning our wedding, Marisa has totally guided us in all aspects for our honeymoon. She was very responsive in replying back to my emails within minutes!
I would definitely recommend Marisa with Sensational Travel in any vacation/ honeymoon planning.
Also take advantage of the wedding honeymoon registry that she offers!
Thanks Marisa!

We usually book our own travel but having Marisa help us with our recent trip to St Lucia was a far better, stress-free experience! She gave us great advice on hotels, things to do, and local customs. She let our hotels know we were celebrating a special occasion which got us an upgrade to the most amazing room with a view of the sea and the Pitons! And when there were weather issues on our departure, she contacted us, kept us informed about flight status and let us know what to do if our flight was canceled. We will definitely use Marisa and Sensational Travel for our future adventures!

We have been on over 80 cruises. American Express says “never leave home with it”. We have a different phrase “never leave home without booking your vacation with Marisa Cole”. Leave your travel plans to a professional who cares about your vacation wishes. We continue to book our cruises with Marisa at Sensational Travel.

I was fortunate to work with Marisa who helped me plan two personal vacations - one to Alaska, and one to Ireland. Marisa was incredibly helpful in answering my questions and making suggestions for activities I would not otherwise have considered. For professional results, great value and service, I would recommend Marisa highly to my friends and business colleagues. I am looking forward to planning another vacation with Marisa as an advisor!

Marisa,
We had a wonderful week in Aruba, staying at the Riu Palace Antillas, beginning with our ocean view from the 11th floor. It was so relaxing to have all the details arranged by you, Sensational Travel, so we could relax from the moment we arrived at Logan until the moment we exited the terminal a week later...to a 50 degree drop in temperature! Relaxing by the pool or on the beach, walking along the boardwalk in Palm Beach, exploring the island on a bus tour or enjoying the different cuisines in the buffet and restaurants. For us, an in-inclusive adults only resort is ideal, and the staff and service here was excellent. I can understand why Aruba is called “the happy island.” Thank you again.
