Dear Ed, I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for all your outstanding efforts in planning and organizing our recent trip to Italy. It was truly an exceptional experience, and we couldn't have done it without your valuable recommendations and expertise. Your knowledge of different destinations and ability to suggest unique and off-the-beaten-path locations made this trip a unique adventure. It was evident that you genuinely cared about ensuring that every aspect of our trip was perfect, and I couldn't be more grateful for that level of dedication.
- Jad L.
Mr. Postal with international travel Planners planned my family's trip to Italy. I have never been to Italy before so I needed some help to plan, especially because we are traveling with little kids. We went to Rome and the Amalfi coast and it was the most amazing trip. Mr. Postal planned every detail so I didn't have to worry about a thing. We had a driver pick us up from the airport, we had our own tour guides, the hotels we perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better trip and I wouldn't have changed a single thing. I can't wait for our next trip.
Ed Postal is the absolute best travel planner. He's always available to answer my questions and to advise me whenever I call or email him. His knowledge of hotels and air flights is really helpful. He really tries to make sure your trip is exceptional. Thank you Ed!!
