  • Theresa planned a great private tour of China for my wife, our friend and myself. All the regular tours we looked at included parts of China that we had already visited. We had several conversations with Theresa about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. She took all that, added some new things based on what we like, and crafted a fabulous trip for us. Everything about it was super and she had set up tons of activities on top of the private tours. We were so happy with our treatment that we have mentioned her to our friends, several of whom have availed themselves of her services with the same great results. She works hard to match your trip to you.

  • Theresa planned MORE than a vacation for me; she created an EXPERIENCE with life-long memories for my family. Each of our individual interests were addressed and fulfilled with excursions that we never would have thought of on our own. We were exposed to food, art, architecture, music and culture- just what we wanted- at every destination in a way that has forever changed the way we will travel. The education my children received was priceless. As a busy business owner and executive, there is no way could have had that kind of trip and gotten the value it provided without Theresa’s help. I can’t wait to go on the next adventure Theresa plans for us!”

  • When we decided to schedule our 20th anniversary celebration somewhere in Africa, we were unsure where to begin. Once the idea of utilizing the services of Theresa Jackson at Enlightened Journeys came, a huge burden was lifted off our shoulders. She presented thorough, unique, detailed, and varied ideas and we chose our favorite itinerary – 4 days and nights on Safari in Kruger National Park on a private game reserve and then onto Cape Town to experience the rich culture and history South Africa has to offer. Theresa saved us valuable time, energy, and money by finding accommodations, flights and tours that worked within our budget, and impressed us with the bang for the buck! The itinerary she prepared was beyond what we could have imagined or planned for ourselves. She saved us what would have undoubtedly been days (weeks?) of stress poring through the internet to find “recommended” lodging, restaurants, etc. We would have debated over just the right location and how to find the best routes and companies, but Theresa covered every detail to include the pacing of the trip so we had time to also ENJOY the journey and adventure that we are about to embark on. The savings Theresa was able to find for us on the flights alone more than matched her small fee. Theresa was available, answered our multitude of questions, showed incredible patience, and truly tailor-made this trip to meet our needs, desires, and preferences as a couple. Theresa has earned our highest possible recommendation, and will use her expertise again when we want to make special memories to last a life time!
