“having you put together the entire trip for us and making it a trip of a lifetime, was an absolute dream for us!”
Julie & The Jet Set Gals,
It may have taken Brett & I a year to take our honeymoon, but having you put together the entire trip for us and making it a trip of a lifetime, was an absolute dream for us. Thank you so much for taking care of every little detail for us in such a short amount of time. Erin, thank you for your patience with my millions of questions! It was simply incredible!!! Thank you for making each hotel so special with the photo, the champagne, the wine, and the treats — even being a year after our wedding, it truly felt like our honeymoon we’ve been dreaming of! It included every aspect we wanted with luxury and relaxation. The Virtuoso amenities were incredible, as we were upgraded to rooms. In Athens at King George we got the Executive Suite, which was the most special close to our trip. The transfers were always on time, waiting for us as soon as we arrived to our next destination or before departing for them, making the “island hopping thing” a seamless process. We didn’t have to think about what we were doing next (we wanted to take a step back from all the planning we do in our day to day lives), and just looking at the app was the best and most convenient thing.
Brett and I met 7 years ago in September 2012 on the Norwegian Star Cruise - and neither of us have seen that ship since. (Typically it sailed from NYC to Bermuda). Ironically enough, as we were on our private catamaran in the Aegian Sea (most incredible experience EVER!), we finally saw that ship again! It was the craziest thing, but also so special to be able to come full circle and see what brought us together to experience our honeymoon these past two weeks!
Thank you girls so much again! We are already discussing where we should have you plan our next trip too!”
“The most magical 2 weeks of our life!”
“Our honeymoon was the most magical 2 weeks of our life! Working with Jet Set Getaways was the best decision we made. When we were starting to plan our trip we weren’t sure we needed a travel agent but a friend recommended we call Julie Anne. We are SO happy we called! Julie Anne and Katy helped plan our honeymoon from start to finish not to mention all the surprises they planned while we were away. All the little details made our honeymoon more special than we could of ever imagined. Julie Anne and her team are extremely professional, genuine, more than helpful, and a pleasure to work with! We cannot wait to plan our next trip with Jet Set Getaways and have already recommended them to our newly engaged friends!”

“The honeymoon of a lifetime!”
“Julie and Jet Set Getaways designed the most wonderful honeymoon for us in Bermuda. The planning process was seamless and a breeze. Julie is super knowledgable about the hotels she works with and was able to make recommendations regarding activities and restaurants. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, and we didn’t! We really had the honeymoon of a lifetime and it just wouldn’t be possible without Julie’s expertise and arrangements.
— Claire and Todd Ballantyne
“Julie and her team at Jet Set Getaways helped create the most perfect honeymoon we could imagine. She was extremely knowledgeable in helping decide on a destination and suggested spots that we would have never discovered otherwise. She and her team were attentive, prompt, and very detail oriented. They were able to suggest and book dining, activities, and transportation with ease. There is no question we received extra special service as a result of booking through her including champagne and dessert upon arrival. I can’t wait to have Julie help book our next Getaway and I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to travel for the perfect vacation destination.”
— Jennifer Meuller
“Customer for Life”
“I knew planning a trip for my honeymoon halfway across the globe in Greece wouldn’t be an easy task. Deciding to go with Julie was by far the best decision I made. Both her and Katy are very detail oriented and made sure that everything was covered while planning the trip. From booking our flights to making transfers from island to island to setting up dinner reservations, I can go on forever, everything was covered and made this trip go as smooth as it could possibly go. Julie has a customer for life and I cannot wait to plan my next vacation with her!”
— Josh Walkowitz
“Truly worry-free, luxury honeymoon”
When it came time to say “I do”, I knew I could handle planning a wedding and a large rehearsal dinner, but the idea of tackling a 10-day honeymoon would put my stress over the edge. Julie was referred to me by a friend, and she and Katy really created a dream vacation! My husband and I knew we wanted to go to Bali to experience the gorgeous scenery and lovely culture, but outside of TripAdvisors and YouTube, we were pretty lost.
With Julie and Katy’s guidance and advice, I selected flights, hotels, and day trips, it was a breeze. As the trip approached I received access to their App, which not only refreshed my memory of all we had put together, it also provided a means to communicate with both Katy and Julie while we were overseas! Maybe the efficiency of their App should have been an inkling, but we experienced 10 days of A+ VIP status all the way! The hotels greeted us with champagne, learned our names in less than a day and decorated our villa with framed photos of our wedding. Oh, and those day trips I thought we “threw together” came with a personal driver and tour guide!
I’m sure we would have had a great honeymoon regardless, but working with Jet Set Getaways allowed us to breathe easier, and truly experience a worry-free, luxury honeymoon.”

“Can’t wait until our next trip!”
“We had no idea where we wanted to go for our honeymoon! Julia Juba helped us narrow our choices and pick the perfect place! We ending up choosing the Bucuti & Tara Resort in Aruba! As Julie said, it was a fabulous adults only resort within our budget. Julie and her staff provided us with many restaurant recommendations, answered hundreds of questions and booked all of our reservations (hotel, restaurants, massages, snorkel trip, etc.). Julie checked in on us a few days before our trip and provided us with a detailed itinerary via an app. I can’t say how happy we are to have used Jet Set Getaways! I can’t wait until our next trip!”
— Jean and Rob
“Julie and her team NAILED IT.”
“We never thought planning our honeymoon would be so much easier than planning the wedding especially when we couldn’t see the venues and places ourselves! We relied on websites, forums, brochures, and comments provided by Julie and her team. Throughout the process we felt we were in good hands, because Julie and her team were knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. They arranged flights, transportation, lodging, and an action packed itinerary catered to our needs.
We kicked off our honeymoon with a few days in Cape Town, South Africa where we got a glimpse into what Julie’s team had in store for us. From the moment we landed we were treated like royalty. Landing in Cape Town, we were immediately greeted by a knowledgeable driver who whisked us away to the beautiful Taj Hotel. We were upgraded to a suite where Julie had arranged a wonderful welcome package for us that included champagne, dessert, rose petals, and a framed photo from our wedding! From that moment on, we knew this trip was going to be special. We began our African adventure the next morning greeted by Tony, our driver and personal tour guide for the duration of our Cape Town stay. He would start us off with a cable car ride up Tabletop Mountain, followed by a quick coastal drive to Boulder Beach, and ending at a private lunch at the Flagship restaurant. Tabletop Mountain would end up being the first of many breathtaking views we got to experience. If you like penguins, Boulder Beach is the place to be. Lunch at the Flagship is a uniquely special dining experience. Chef Duncan serves a multi-course meal to a limited amount of people right in his home. The delicious meal paired with a different wine for each course was delightful, as was the interaction from Chef Duncan and the other guests.
Our quick visit to Cape Town didn’t stop there. The next day we were scheduled for a few wine tastings in the winelands. Julie had gotten our wine preferences earlier and put together a list of a few vineyards she thought we might enjoy. No need to bore you with the details but we were well taken care of and everything was definitely a hit. We were treated to some excellent wines paired with different foods and chocolate that really accentuated their flavors. We capped off the day with lunch at the Delaire Graff Estate. Suffice to say, the estate was a beautiful property with commanding views of the Stellenbosch Mountains. Tony made sure we had the best seats in the house so we could really enjoy the the superb lunch accompanied with delectable food and great service.
Can an African adventure really be called an adventure without seeing some big game? We think not. After our whirlwind tour of Cape Town we spent the next few days in Kruger National Park for a safari. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by personal driver, tour guide, and photographer extraordinaire, Barry Peiser. We would spend a whole lot of time with Barry over the next few days but we started it off with a ride to the Singita Sweni Lodge. Already excited to see some animals in the wild, we managed to spot three out of the Big Five just driving to the lodge! The lodge itself was a truly remarkable and magical place that we could not believe existed in the wild. From the attentive staff, the gourmet food, and the beautifully appointed private cabins, everything was like a dream.
Lauren and the Singita Sweni staff are all stars. Especially our personal host, Fortunate, who made our stay in the wild a home away from home. She made sure our room was always tidy, our glasses always full, and our bellies always satisfied. We were very “fortunate” to have experienced her hospitality. Boasting an extensive wine library, the Singita Sweni manages to really complement every meal with something new and delicious. And the meals themselves? Being in the middle of nowhere and eating on some of the best gourmet food we’ve ever had was definitely an unexpected highlight. Dining on rack of lamb and pan seared sea bass while sipping a Pinot Taj under a star filled sky in the middle of Africa with the one I love? CHECK
Now for the real reason we came to Singita, the safari! Everyday we were treated to two private game drives with Barry and Sunday, our super powered animal whisperer and tracker. These guys were the BEST. With Sunday’s super powered vision and ability to track animals through footprints and random tracks, we were able to see all of the Big Five. Barry was knowledgeable and knew exactly where to take us for the best views on the reserve. We were even blessed with seeing an elusive white lion cub as he walked with his pride a few feet from our truck! A priceless moment, indeed.
Capping off every afternoon game drive while watching the African sunset is something very special. The radiance of the sky coupled with the best company you could ask for… no words or photos can accurately describe what it’s like to really be in that moment. We were on such a high that we did not want to leave, but Azura Benguerra Island in Mozambique was awaiting for our arrival. We stayed for a few days in Mozambique in complete beach bliss – another gem in the middle of nowhere. We were upgraded from a suite to a house! The many benefits of being Julie’s client :) We had a private pool that was within steps from the secluded beach and our own host that took care of our every need. The weather, ambience, and service at Azura was the perfect and only way to end our honeymoon.
Julie and her team nailed it! The level of treatment from start to end made us feel like a million bucks!”

“Perfect Hawaiin Honeymoon”
“I wanted to let you know how happy we are with your service and how appreciative we are for all the work you did to make our Hawaiian honeymoon perfect. With all the stress of planning a wedding (and finding out we were expecting a baby during the process) we had little time to research honeymoon activates, never mind actually booking anything! From the first time that you met with my husband to discuss the trip, we both felt that you all did your very best to get to know us so that you could take the reigns and really plan the trip for us. We love that your team took control and didn’t bother us with minor details. More importantly, you gave us your honest opinion and encouraged us to change our mind when you thought that you had ideas that would give us a better experience (thank god we listened)!
Every single aspect of our honeymoon was taken care of, from car services and dinner reservations, to snorkel trips and helicopter tours. Your services allowed us to enjoy the experience and each other without having to sweat the small stuff. Each activity was perfect for us and the hotels were AMAZING. Your team was professional, quick to respond, understood our needs and adhered to our budget. You guys also made us feel special by letting both hotels know that we were on our honeymoon/babymoon and having little gifts and snacks sent to our room over the course of the trip! So sweet!
We would, and do, recommend Jet Set Getaways to anyone looking for a dream honeymoon (or any trip) and we will continue to use your services in the future. Thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime. We are so lucky to have worked with you and can’t wait to work with you again in the future!”
