Juan is amazing to work with to help plan family travels!
Juan and Eli travel planned our 20th anniversary trip to Hawaii with our 4 teenage children. We had the time of our lives. Juan planned so many great activities that kept us busy during our 10 day stay. We stayed in 2 great properties that worked perfectly for our family of six. Thank you Juan and Eli Travel for such an unbelievable trip.
I have worked with Juan on two occasions. He was very helpful and professional through the entire process. He booked my honeymoon trip to hawaii and it was perfect. My wife loved everything. I would recommend his services to anyone booking a trip.
As always Juan and Elli Travel Group planned us such an amazing trip to Italy. We have now used them for 3 trips and from the big trip for our honeymoon to a 4 day getaway to this 11 day trip to Italy they continue to exceed our expectations. They are always available and spend so much time to ensure we have a great trip. I can't say enough good things about the team at Elli Travel. I can't wait to start planning our next trip with them.-
Juan and Elli Travel did a great job of arranging fine choices for our honeymoon. I called Elli travel quite last minute and they understood the situation that I was facing in trying to book a two week summer trip in Europe. After a brief discussion about what we were looking to do, the type of place we wanted to stay in and our budget, they came back within a few days with hotel and travel options. This is exactly what I had hoped for and I trusted their knowledge of the arrangements. Picking from their options relieved a lot of stress for me and I couldn't have been happier.
Juan is Kristen's partner and together they provided me and my partner with outstanding travel assistance last week to Gran Velas, at Cancun de Maya. At every step of the journey they were extremely helpful and responsive. As a very seasoned traveler I was skeptical that they would add much value to my travel. Wrong! These folks are terrific and one is doing a great disservice to themselves by not contacting them got travel advice.
Juan was wonderful - given we did Disney, and I knew a lot about the area, it was wonderful to have Juan's perspective and also have him available for all of the booking - it was such a load off! The only reason I put value at 4 stars is there were not a ton of financial savings, however, Juan made that very clear throughout the whole process and was wonderful. The value was in his service.

We are so happy to have worked with Juan and the Elli team! They far surpassed any expectations that we had amd were able to plan us a beautiful and perfect honeymoon. They were able to listen to our ideas and desires and were able to deliver us a well thought out, organized, and perectly tailored trip. Our hotels, activities, and daily travel tips were perfect. We could not say enough great things about Kristin and her team- looking forward to booking another trip!
Juan and the Eli Travel Group were very attentive and super helpful! Juan was always thinking about us - following up as we got closer to the honeymoon and making sure that all of our ducks were in a row so we didn't have to think about travel with everything else going on for the wedding. He made restaurant reservations (and changes), formed great relationships with the hotel staff, and made sure we had wonderful accommodations during our trip. I would highly recommend him for your honeymoon - especially when you have enough to stress about!
My family just returned from a week in Costa Rica. We worked entirely with Juan and Elli Travel Group to plan the trip and they did a fabulous job! We began talking about the trip back in October and they spent a lot of time making sure that the trip was exactly what we would want it to be. They have great people they work with on the other end, and also advised us based on their own experience. They ask plenty of questions to make sure they know what a client wants. But they also fielded loads of questions from us. Very patient and professional. I highly recommend them.
