Testimonials

Amazing Travel Experiences!

the travel mechanic, experienced travel agents.My daughter and I had a fabulous time in NYC and on our cruise to Bermuda. Everything went perfectly and I wanted to thank you for helping us. The seats at the Broadway show were awesome and I even was thrown one of the roses to me at the end of the show. We got on the Today Show also which was fun! Bermuda was gorgeous and I got to do jet-skiing (another item on my bucket list). The tour guide was enjoyable and humorous. My daughter and I even found a beach where no one was and enjoyed it to ourselves as well as enjoying a lovely lunch overlooking the water above this beach. We loved sailing on Norwegian! It was so much fun and I can’t thank you enough, Lauren!!

Hummingbird Costa Rica“My family and I are still feeling “magical” after our family Disney World trip. From beginning to end, Lauren was able to attend to our every request and planned a fun-filled vacation to the happiest place on Earth! Lauren was extremely attentive and booked events for us that made the trip fantastic. From researching special events to finding us the best accommodations, Lauren and her team allowed us enjoy every minute of our trip. We can’t wait to go back!”

Hummingbird Costa Rica“Max Vindas is a superb, professional birding guide who made each day’s outing exhilarating, entertaining and educational. “Costa Rica is a bird photographers dream come true. I managed to get decent photos of 200 of the 295 different species we observed during the week. We had quite the assortment of amenities from a four star hotel in the city to a research outpost deep in the jungle. We were well led, well cared for and well educated. We observed by birds by van, elevated tram, river boat and on foot through the jungles, above the canopy, along the coast, up a river and on a mountain top.”
“The week in Costa Rica was spectacular. Truly worthy of the bucket list.”
~Herb Fechter


Costa Rica Group TripAn awesome and muddy ride through the palm oil “farm” then a beautiful hike through the forest to an amazing waterfall! The trip was really amazing and I can’t wait to go back. Robbie took the time to understand what I wanted in a vacation and helped me plan and book an absolutely amazing trip with my friends. The trip exceeded our expectations. Robbie and Jennie made sure that all our needs were met to make a perfect trip.

Brocker FamilyA trip with 12 people, ages 8-70 and five of them children can be daunting. “The Travel Mechanic” was enthusiastic to make it an enjoyable experience for all. The decision for a cruise ship was great as there was so much going on, no matter your interests and no packing and unpacking. Jennie was also able to get personal guides and transportation at the different ports. The guide in Rome took us to her favorite restaurant off the beaten path – no tourists and the guide in Venice took us through neighborhoods and showed us her home on the canal. We were able to see the famous tourist spots, but also the local culture – the best of both worlds. Everything was well organized – a great three generation trip thanks to The Travel Mechanic.

t3“As a busy working mom, I never had time to find the “perfect family vacation”! I just didn’t have the time, energy or inclination to surf the Internet, read the travel books or thumb thru the magazines. There had to be a better way! I sought guidance from friends and one name came repeatedly: Jennie Mechanic. She carefully listened to what I was looking for and made my wishes come true! She found us the best vacation spot!
That was over 10 years ago and we’ve used her for every family trip since then! She knows the best properties in the most beautiful spots, finds us the best and cheapest air routes and even got us a fantastic upgrade one year! For FREE! I can’t imagine why anyone would..or could…do what Jennie does for me and my family! Using a professional travel agent like Jennie makes everything easier and assures me that we will all have a great trip. The only problem that I encounter each year is selecting just one of her fabulous itineraries! So many fantastic places-so little time!

TTM-britt-testimonial“Our trip was amazing! We absolutely loved it and all of the vouchers and hotels went seamlessly. We didn’t really have a bad experience anywhere so it is really hard to pick a favorite place. We loved the Nags Head and O’Callahans. All the hotels were good and in good locations. The Lancaster Gate didn’t have very good food, not terrible, but all the other places had far better. We saw so many things and has such a good time. We cannot wait to go back and we can’t thank you enough for planning it for us. You did a fantastic job”!
~Autumn and Jeremiah Britt, Maryland
