Travel Reports and Tips

December Issue: Travel Reports

Did you miss us last month?  November is the time of the year travel agents are invited by suppliers to go on “site visits” and familiarize themselves with new hotels, cruise boats and destinations. 
Maureen and Lauren (Mini MoMo) both chose different destinations for their research trip. Read below to learn more about their trips and Hot Tips.Also, don’t forget to “like” our MoGo Travel Facebook Page and see how Lauren packed for 18 days abroad: @MoGoTravel Service
Maureen opted for the warm Caribbean for her research trip. Her destination was Turks & Caicos and she split her five days between two resorts.  Here are her tips on this island. 

  • Top Beaches of the World: Grace Bay Beach has been voted as one of the top ten beaches in the world. People love this beach because of it’s calm crystal blue waters and accessibility to town. Long Bay Beach is less crowded, has several hours of low tide where you can wade quite a distance and provides the prefect breeze for kite surfers. 
  • Hurricane Damage: Turks & Caicos lost some palm trees & foliage, but most hotels are open and the beaches look pristine!
  • Resorts: This island offers a range of resort options from all-inclusive to luxury. For an all-inclusive resorts, you cannot beat Beaches (voted World’s Best All Inclusive-19 years in a row), and is a mecca for family vacations. The Palms at Grace Bay Beach is the perfect luxury getaway for couples celebrating milestone birthdays or special anniversaries and will guarantee a “WOW”. The Long Bay Beach at the Shore Club is the newest and most beautiful resort on the island, bar none. This resort is on the same level of the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton. The beach is literally your own little paradise while the pool has this zen like feeling . If you really want to detach but live in luxury – this is your place. 

Final MoGo Thoughts: Turks & Caicos is not known for bargains, but if there was ever a year to get a great deal it’s 2018. The hotels want guests to know the island is open for business and there are a lot of great promotions.

Lauren spent 18 days over in Europe, visiting 5 different countries. Here are her tips from each country. 

  • Dublin (Ireland)The food scene in Ireland has really picked up. Either take a cooking class or treat yourself to a nice meal to go along with your pint of Guinness. 
  • Prague (Czech Republic): Stroll along the Charles Bridge at night and make a wish at the statue of St. John. Also, grab a Pilsner beer with the locals at Pivnice U Glaubicu  
  • Passau (Germany): Check out the 2nd largest working organ in the world at the Cathedral of St. Stephen. 
  • Vienna (Austria): Sit at the bar at Demel cafe and try the Austrian dessert, Sacher torte, and make sure to get a look at the chefs at work. 
  • Budapest (Hungary):  Save some room in your luggage for shopping at the Central Market Hall, which is the largest covered food market in Budapest. 

Final Mini MoGo Thoughts: Early November is the perfect time to visit Europe. While you roll the dice on weather, you are guaranteed less crowded streets and better access to the “must-visit” sites.  Plus, prices are about 30% less than the summer “high season”. Less Crowds + Bigger Savings = Happy Travelers!
