A friend of mine booked 4 of us on an Apple Vacation to Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar in Cancun. One of the best vacations we ever had! No problems with flight, no problems with transfers. The airport in Cancun is difficult, but this had nothing to do with Apple Vacations. The hotel was wonderful, staff friendly and pleasant, and food was great. We had such a great time we went back again about a month later.

Our experience with Apple Vacations was phenomenal. First off, we got a great deal on our vacation package. All the Apple Vacations' representatives were courteous and informative both on the phone and on the resort. They provided transportation to and from the airport which was always on time and comfortable. Will be using them again.

    About Apple Vacations

    Apple Vacations is one of the top U.S. purveyors of all-inclusive vacations to mostly warm-weather resort destinations.  

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Operating on huge volume, Apple offers a wide array of discounts and will match any competitors’ prices if lower than theirs.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Anyone looking for an all-inclusive vacation package, usually to sun and sand destinations. Apple Vacations will work with both individuals and groups of various sizes.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Hawaii, the Caribbean, The Bahamas, Mexico, Central and South America, and, in winter, to ski destinations.

    How Does It Work?

    Roundtrip airfare is included, usually on non-stop Apple Vacations charter flights that typically leave in the morning and return in the evening, maximizing your time at your destination. (If departure cities aren’t convenient, they’ll work with commercial airlines to get you there.) Once you arrive at your destination airport, you’ll get a free transfer to your hotel (with a few exceptions). Lodging is included in your package, as is the assistance of an Apple Vacations representative if needed. And they offer optional excursions at your destination.  

    Why Travel With Them?

    The non-stop charter flights are a big plus, enabling you to avoid the delays and hassle of traveling by commercial airlines. If you don’t want to do a lot of planning or prep work and are primarily looking for a relaxing vacation, Apple can be an excellent choice.

    About Elite Luxury Kenya

    Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

    Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
