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

    Since 1969, Apple Vacations has been one of the top U.S. purveyors of all-inclusive vacations to mostly warm-weather resort destinations.  

    What Makes Apple Vacations Stand Out?

    • All inclusive vacations
    • Transfers included
    • Award-winning tour company
    • Exclusive non-stop vacation flights
    • Easy-to-reach Apple representatives
    • Great value

    Operating on huge volume, Apple offers a wide array of discounts and will match any competitors’ prices if lower than theirs. Round-trip transfers between the destination airport and hotel are always included with every package. Transportation is taken care of at no additional cost, rather than overcharging for pick-ups like most travel sites. There is also a variety of added values such as room upgrades, golf discounts, and free weddings just to name a few.

    Who Travels With Apple Vacations?

    • All ages
    • Those who love beach vacations
    • ‘Soft’ adventurers
    • Solo and group travelers

    Anyone looking for an all-inclusive vacation package will love traveling with Apple Vacations. Majority of their travelers are US natives, but they welcome everyone onto their tours. It should be noted that all tours are conducted in English.

    Apple Vacation tours typically aren’t physically demanding - the most you’ll have to potentially prepare for is 1 hour of walking at a leisurely pace.

    Top Destinations

    • Mexico
    • Carribean
    • Hawaii
    • Central and South America

    Apple Vacations will take you to all the tropical destinations that are popular with North Americans. White sand beaches that stretch for miles in Aruba, volcanoes and hidden waterfalls in Hawaii - the types of destination that everyone dreams of going to. Whilespecializing in warm-weather destinations, they also offer ski destinations in the winter. Go skiing with Apple Vacations in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe, and even Japan!

    Apple Vacations Travel Style

    Apple Vacations is all about the classic fun-in-the-sun adventures. They typically focus on culture, nature, and soft adventure-themed activities. This could mean exploring a Riviera Maya adventure park on an Apple Vacations tour to Cancun, or snorkelling with tropical fish on an Apple Vacations Hawaii tour.

    Accommodations range anywhere from 3 star hotels to 5 star resorts. You can choose what type of hotel you’d like to stay in depending on your interests, budget, and occasion. They work with big hotel chains that are great for weddings, family reunions, parties, and the like. It’s suggested to do some hotel research as every place offers a different experience. However, if you’re hoping for quirky local accommodations or culturally immersive homestays, you won’t find it here. Most meals are included, with many being large buffets catered by the hotel.  

    On Apple Vacations’ non-stop charter flights, they’ll 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).

    Why Choose a Tour with Apple Vacations?

    If you enjoy tropical vacations with open bars and buffets by the poolside, then you should travel with Apple Vacations. You get to choose what activities you’d like to do, and be in charge of how much free time you’d like. Additionally, 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.

    However, if you’re hoping for quirky local accommodations or culturally immersive homestays, you won’t find it here.

    About Tailor Made Shanghai

    Just like our customers, we’re passionate about new and exciting ideas, which is why we offer the world’s first and only tour combining food, tailor made clothes, and sightseeing.

    While our customers are all unique in their own ways, they likely all have one or more things common – a love of food, fashion, and international travel! There is no “average type” of traveler in our group, but typically our customers are 25-45 years old, active, and have a curiosity for new cultures. Our trip pricing reflects our customers, who will feel comfortable during their stay at a 5-star internationally branded hotel, but who don’t want the high price tag that often goes along with “luxury” branded trips.

    Our trips are all-inclusive (accommodation, transport, meals, entrance fees, guides) so you don’t have to worry about any extra expenses during the trip. Your only additional expense during the trip will be for souvenirs and tailor made clothes, but you can decide how much or little to spend according to your preference. Typically our customers love taking advantage of handmade customized tailor made clothes offered at very low prices – sometimes our customers even go home with an additional piece of luggage to fit all of their new clothes!

    While our trips offer a wide variety of activities and experiences, we are primarily known for offering the first and only trip in the world combining food, tailor made clothes, and sightseeing. So in addition to returning home with memories and pictures of amazing sites and food, our customers also return home with a perfectly-fitted wardrobe of their choosing.

    Instead of spending hours upon hours of traveling by bus, train, or airplane and only getting to see brief glimpses of multiple places, we spend an entire week in one city so there’s no wasted travel time, and so that our customers experience an in-depth understanding of the city’s culture, character, and people.

    Primary mode of travel will be by mini-bus, but we’ll also do plenty of walking, which will give customers the chance to slow down and enjoy each moment. The daily itinerary is filled with many interesting places to see and delicious food to eat, but is balanced with free time each day for you to have a rest, take a swim, or enjoy a tasty beverage.

    In order to ensure each customer’s needs are attended to, especially with regards to buying tailor made clothes, we limit group size to a maximum of 10 people. This allows us to focus on making sure each and every customer has the attention they deserve. For people who have never experienced buying tailor made clothes, our fashion stylist will assist and make sure each person’s unique style and preferences are taken into account.

    We focus on trips to Asia, which offers an incredible diversity of food and cultural experiences, and also the unique opportunity to buy handmade customized tailor made clothes at incredibly low prices.

    We offer a unique experience that isn’t available anywhere else, so come join us for an unforgettable trip!
