Gail & Dick - 50th Wedding Anniversary
Thank you for your help and guidance in planning our 50th wedding anniversary celebration. The Villa Carola was the perfect choice. Our family, spanning four generations, celebrated with us in the most relaxing, private setting, just steps away from the Azul Beach resort. The staff, thanks to you, was most attentive, and the food was fabulous. So glad we did this!
Aruba was wonderful and the beautiful weather couldn’t have been more perfect! The beach area was so gorgeous! Truly the most beautiful beach waters we’ve been in and the clarity and stunning crystal blues of the ocean was a sight to behold. All about the resort was top notch. We especially loved the food and the friendly staff. One thing that jumped out at me was the constant upkeep and cleaning of all areas. I really appreciated that for sure. I can see why it is rated 5 stars Assuredly, a most memorable and fun 30th Anniversary! Thank you for the resort recommendation and we look forward to planning another great trip with you again for next year.
We have used Karyn at Imagine Tours for two of our vacations now, and we mist say she does not disappoint! The first was our honeymoon to Playa Mujeres, Mexico, and our most recent anniversary getaway to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. These were two of the most romantic and relaxing trips we’ve been on. We will surely use her again in the future!
Annie & James
We had a great time and loved Mexico. We'r had the best meal of our life in the backside candle lit dinner and James being a cook says a lot for the food. It was all so great we do not have even one complaint so thank you for the wonderful suggestion. Ive attached a few photos. Again thank you for everything,
Karyn is an amazing person who never failed me. Despite the confusion my group ran into at one time or another, she managed to get things back on track and everyone was satisfied. I look forward to planing my next vacation with Karyn and I have also sent more customers her way.
Karin & Dennis Kinnan
My husband and I have been using Karyn Fallon as our travel consultant for the past fifteen years. I think that alone says something about the service she provides. Of course we went to Karyn for her travel advice when we decided to go to Italy for 27 days. Her recommendations for must see sights were spot on. She helped put together a travel plan that included travel and stays around Rome, the Amalfi Coast, and Venice. She also helped us find travel to Arezzo where we met up with friends for an extended stay. Whenever we have had difficulty during the course of any of our travels, Karyn has always been there for us. She is not just our travel consultantbut our friend.
I can't say enough good things about Karyn. She is the only travel agent I will use when it comes to my vacations. Over the last 12 years I’ve had Karen book family trips to Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, and numerous cruises. Every time the trip has been planned perfectly and my family and I have had a great time. She has a wealth of knowledge about most places so you get real info not some anonymous info like from online. One time when we were stuck in NJ due to weather she arranged a car for us to get home. I would have been lost without her help. Karen is the best!
Once again, Imagine Tours has sent us on a vacation we will remember forever! Beaches Negril Jamaica was incredible. An all inclusive family friendly resort that never left us wondering what to do next. The food was fabulous, there was nightly entertainment, and the kids (14 and 17) were never bored. The best part was that Karyn set everything up from the flight to the transfers, to the concierge that took care of our every need. We can't wait to book our next vacation! Thank you from the Crane family!
Sharon Vernaci - Christmas Vacation
Just wanted to give a shout out to Karyn at Imagine Tours for the recommendation to go to Palm Island! What a beautiful resort. The staff are amazing and very helpful with all your needs. Love this place and would definitely go again! Absolutely beautiful!
The Westerhoff Family
Karyn is AWESOME! We have been blessed to have her booking 2-3 trips a year for us for the past 14 years, and we love her! We have recommended her to all our friends, family, and coworkers! She books annual trips for my parents, in-law's, and extended family! She has gotten us countless upgrades and perks! She is personable, easy to talk to, and goes above and beyond. I like knowing that if something unexpected ever came up on a trip she's there for us start to finish. She appreciates feedback and often checks up on us after a trip to hear how everything went. She's much more than a travel agent, she's a trusted friend! We are so thankful to have found her!
Lori Himes - Another FABULOUS Trip!
Thanks again to my amazing travel agent Karyn Fallon at Imagine Tours for suggesting and helping me plan for and book my latest trip! I was itching to travel somewhere and she gave me info on Iceland of all places!
The trip went flawlessly from start to finish. Our hotel, Hotel Arnarhvoll, was located right next to the City Center in Reykjavik within walking distance to most shopping, restaurants and bars. It was clean, warm and well maintained and the restaurant on the top floor was delicious! They have a nightly happy hour and offer the guests a 20% discount at dinner. I can’t tell you how much I looked forward to the catch of the day at the end of each day We pre-booked (3) excursions to explore the Golden Circle and South Coast as well as the sumptuous geothermic day spa at the Blue Lagoon. The buses, drivers and tour guides were punctual, friendly and knowledgeable. They were well read and full of Icelandic facts as well as local folklore tales and whimsy. This country is simply beautiful and has yet to be spoiled by tourist commercialism. I absolutely fell in love with her!
Karyn has been my travel guru for close to 15 years now and has never steered me wrong. Thanks to her I have explored Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and the South Pacific….and I’m far from finished. I got engaged in Paris, honeymooned in Fiji, swam with the sharks in Dominican Republic, kissed the Blarney Stone and stood next to the pyramids in Chichen-Itza. And that’s just a handful of my forever memories! Her attention to detail, availability and helpful hints have left me with complete confidence that my journeys would be everything I hoped for. I can’t wait for my next trip!
Karyn is amazing! I have been using her for over 12 years now. She is full of knowledge when it comes to travel. She is very accommodating and works hard to please her customers.Karyn takes the time to help sort through all the resorts and find the one that best suits her guests. We never had to do any of the bookings on our own. The all-inclusive options, the airfare and all the details were taken care of before we left the house. I was quite happy with all the follow-up calls to see that we were ready and she always asks how everything went when we return. Everything was presented before the trip, documents always arrived on time and I was always amazed how many things were included such as transfers and insurance. She always is sure to customize the experience no matter who my travel partners are. I can highly recommend Karyn and Imagine Tours a I wouldn’t travel anywhere without booking through Karyn. I place 100% trust in her for my whole family. I have gone on destinations to many countries from my Honeymoon to pure Caribbean and Jamaican experiences with my family. Thank you Karyn for the wonderful memories and life experiences!
Kaylee & Jordan
Great company! Please book your vacation with Karyn, you will not regret it. Karyn helped my husband and I find the best vacation/honeymoon. She was very good with all the details and didn't miss a thing. We didn't have to think about a thing while we were there because it was already taken care of for us. We are booking our next vacation with Karyn and can't wait to see what she comes up with! Thank you Imagine Tours and Awesome Adventures!
Just Back from ALASKA! Just got back from an extremely enjoyable trip. Thanks for all your help in organizing the Alaska Land-Sea Cruise. We had a great time and must say, everything was first class. I will have no problem in recommending you to anyone looking into booking a fantastic vacation. thanks again.
We had an absolute blast and want to go back real soon! If we were to ask a bunch of questions when do you think the best time of the year to go back is!! Scotty and I love Rio Perdido! The food was great, the drinks were to die for, and the service and people were so friendly it was outstanding! We heard so much wildlife at night, and got close to so many monkeys and it wasn't even the wet season! I was delighted that we were able to go tubing too! I told him that the tubing was including as it said on the paper and we had already paid for the zip lining but he just let us go zip lining for free since it was the same price! The managers there were incredible! Thanks goes to you as well because you made our experience one we will always remember! Your the one who helped us book it after all.
Karyn at Imagine Tours and Awesome Adventures is our go to travel guru for family vacations and has been since 2006. She arranges everything down to the last detail, taking any worry away. She is the master at upgrades, transfers, advice and logistics. We have referred many friends, knowing that they will receive the very best service. This year, we are off to Beaches Negril in Jamaica and can't wait! Eric and Sonya
I have been working with Karyn Fallon for 5 years now and she is the best. She organized my wedding and honeymoon in 2008 in Cancun and I have been asking for her assistance each year since then. She is so attentive to our needs, especially now that I have a baby to take into consideration when we travel.
The amount of time and energy she puts in to making sure we always choose the right place means a lot to me.
I plan on going to her for all of my trips.
Our parents booked us the honeymoon as a gift, so we were unable to use Karyn for this travel. However, when we arrived at the resort and were not happy with the room we reserved (swim-up), the El Dorado Royale was unable to move us, upgrade us or move us to another resort. We were upset and I was disappointed that our honeymoon would not be fun and relaxing as expected.
We arrived on Saturday afternoon, but after contacting the TA our parents used, she promptly told us it was her weekend and she did not appreciate us calling her. She was rude with Parker and gave us no advice on what our options were. We felt stuck and unhappy. My only thought was to contact Karyn in hopes she could at least point us in the right direction on anything we could do. She answered her phone on the weekend and was stunned we were calling when we were suppose to be on our honeymoon!
She listened to our story and told us as she was not the TA it would be hard for her to help. BUT she suggested we visit with our travel insurance company (Amex) to see if they would help us out. Note, no one else had given us this option. We thanked her and she said she would check back on us the next day.
We spoke with Amex and they were awesome. They understood our frustration and disappointment and worked hard to recoup some of our money at El Dorado and allow us to book back at Now Jade, because that is where we knew we felt comfortable and could enjoy our honeymoon. Within a few hours, we were refunded 4 nights and booked for 4 nights at Now Jade! They were amazing and SO generous to allow us to move.
Karyn called as she said she would and we told her the good news! She was very happy for us and it was comforting to know even though she was not responsible for our honeymoon that we could count on her to give us advice. She was a lifesaver and we are very thankful to have built a relationship with her. She went above and beyond her duties to us and for that we are so grateful. If not for her I am sure our honeymoon would have been ruined.
So THANK YOU KARYN and XXXXXXX! We will recommend you both to anyone planning or thinking of a Destination Wedding

Imagine Tours created a dream vacation for my family. When a problem came up in Mexico regarding a free excursion, one phone call to Karyn, and she had the problem fixed. We will use Imagine Tours for all of our “Awesome Adventures”.
This was the best vacation our family ever had! The Xpu-Ha Palace Resort was everything we could want in an ecologically-minded paradise. Karyn was terrific! She knew just what we wanted and made all the arrangements without a hitch.
Dennis and Karin K.
Karyn, your work with us when we were in Mexico after hurricane Wilma struck was awesome. When we were able to get through to you, two days after the storm passed, not only had you started to figuring out how and when we could get home, you had already called family members so that they would know we were OK! Even more amazing was when you helped our friends from Ohio, so that they too could get home, AND kept in contact with their family. I’m sure Jose will remember you calling his home in Mexico, after finding a Spanish translator to give him information for us and others. In case anyone reading this doesn’t get it, Karyn not only works with you to get the best deal and vacation, but she is there to help, day or night when things get a little “unplanned”. She is simply the best, by far.”
Ami’s Honeymoon in Costa Rica
Karyn was a pleasure to work with. She was flexible to all my suggestions and desires. My honeymoon to Costa Rica was the most amazing trip we could have ever imagined!
From the Wedding Wire
Karyn is amazing! She will dedicate time and energy to ensuring your vacation package is all you wanted and could ever imagine. She makes herself readily available to help you and will do all she can to help. Haley
Robert & Clarice Girouard
Thank you Karyn for making 'the trip of a lifetime' easy. Your guidance in planning this vacation made this trip worry free and enjoyable. You answered all our questions, gave us sound planning advice, always responded immediately to all our inquiries and had the patience of a saint in dealing with the needs of the four individuals in our party. We all appreciated your guidance from offering to cover our transportation needs to and from the airport to the post Alaskan cruise stay in Vancouver. We appreciate and thank you for all you provided to us.
Croatia Is Amazing
Thanks Karyn for suggesting this rare gem as a destination. My wife and I were ready for a getaway and Karyn suggested Croatia!
After looking it up on the map (haha) and a quick internet search, I was sold. I can’t say enough about the old world charm and hospitality of this region. Unlike many places in Europe, Croatia remains unspoiled and isn’t overrun with tourists.
Our vacation started in Dubrovinik took us up the Dalmation Coast ending in Slovenia. Each stop had a different flavor and truly took my breath away. The hotels were top notch and the tour guides impeccable. There was so much history to soak in and the food is fabulous.
Karyn handled all of our arrangements with her usual thoroughness and attention to detail. I can honestly say that we have yet to have ANY glitches with the bookings she’s made for us and we’ve had her handle a couple of dozen trips for us!! I was wondering why our rooms at the various hotels in Croatia were far superior to the other people sharing our tour and then realized that Karyn had taken care of us as usual! Can’t wait for the next trip - you are the absolute best! Todd Langenbau

Janet & Tim Swisher
Thank you so much for planning our wonderful trip to Hawaii. We had such a great, memorable time. Everything you planned and set up was perfect; every flight, every excursion, all the transportation and the cruise was planned to perfection. There was nothing to worry about.
I've wanted to go to Hawaii for a long time, I knew it was beautiful but it actually took my breath away; we never would have gone without your planning it for us.
I tried to attach a few pictures, I hope they make it (I'm not very computer savvy).
We can't thank you enough for making out 10th anniversary so magical!! Thanks,
I have used imagine tours for over 25 years. Every trip is perfectly planned and executed. Karyn is amazing and unlike other sites she is there 24/7 if there is a need or problem. She just booked my 3rd trip to Riu Palace Aruba and as usual it was spot on. I made several special requests and they were ready for me when I arrived. To make it even better her pricing is extremely aggressive. Thank you Imagine Tours!
Karyn recently booked my my honeymoon. Karyn was very knowledgable about various resorts and locations. She also had wonderful suggestions for excursions and day trips off the resorts. We are so glad we took her up on her advice because we made some everlasting memories on these great excursions. Karyn was also very accommodating and I was able to call her or email her 7 days a week. She also provided us with great identifiable luggage tags. They came in Handy when trying to make it through the airports! We will use Karyn for future trips and highly recommend Karyn!
We just recently went on vacation for our 10 year anniversary, travelling to Punta Cana, DR from September 13th to the 21st. We booked our trip through Karyn Fallon of Imagine Tours and had a great experience, start to finish, with everything that she handled for us. Karyn has booked all of our trips for us since before we were married, and she has always made sure everything was taken care of; airfare, transportation to and from the resort, and this past time also arranged a ride to and from the airport in the Boston for us.
This recent trip was our second to Punta Cana, the first time we went was when my husband proposed, and Karyn arranged that trip for us too! My husband and I are very indecisive when it comes to making travel plans, and never have a definite trip in mind, so thank you Karyn for working with us and always finding the best trip that you can!
Joe and Sue Curran
We have really enjoyed our association with Karyn. We have gone on 3 trips through Karyn so far and have a 4th scheduled for New Orleans in May. We have done Ireland, Cancun and Costa Rica. All of the trips so far were painless to plan and were just awesome. Karyn always helps and has amazing idea's. She also comes up with different places to try, not just the standard places to stay. Our Costa Rican trip was split between 2 resorts and was a lot of fun. We will continue to use Karyn in the future as we believe it is the smart thing to do!
Last August my friend and I booked a week's get-away to Dublin scheduled for March. Karyn was extremley helpful in all planning stages of the trip and made numerous suggestions to make it flawless. She was immediately accessible to help with our questions. Karyn had thoroughly explained the travel insurance policy during the plannning. As it happened, due to a medical illness, unfortunately, we had to cancel the trip just weeks before. As most people, I've opted for insurance previously but never had to go through the process. Once again, Karyn was there to answer any and all questions as was AIG travel insurance. Looking forward to planning the next trip and will definitely partner with Karyn.
When everyone wants to book themselves online, it's great to have Karyn on your side! We've priced out several packages on our own and asked Karyn to price out some as well, Karyn's prices always came back atleast the same as ours or even lower! The difference is Karyn was able to get us better accodmations and flights! Karyn always gets back to us immediatley and works diligently to get us the vacation we want!
We have used Karen's exceptional service as a travel agent for over 10 years. She has worked to get us the best deals available even if we only used her company for part of a larger package. She is the best we have used.
Sylvia and I had a great time at the El Dorado Royale. You and Jordan choose a wonderful spot to have a wedding and vacation.
The restaurants, staff, pools and accommodations were all outstanding! At check-in, we were upgraded, at no additional charge, to a suite with the connecting swimming pool canals. It was fun swimming to the main pools and meeting the neighbors.
We had dinner at the coolest restaurant I have ever been to - The Alux - in downtown Playa Del Carmen. The restaurant is located inside a cenote. We had to walk down about 100 feet to get to the dining area. I have attached a couple of pics.
I have known Karyn for several years and she does an amazing job. I booked a trip to Vegas with her and it went off without a hitch. Karyn and her team are available 24/7 if there are any problems but I have never needed to use this service since she gets it right the first time. I would definitely recommend using Imagine Tours.
I have using Imagine Tours & Awesome Adventures for 12 or 13 years. She has always gone above and beyond to make sure I have a good experience before and after my trips. The first time I used Karyn I was trying to book a trip to St Thomas USVI to surprise my father with a deep sea fishing trip. I called Karyn after hearing her ad on the radio. She got back to me in a few days after taking the time to call the USVI Chamber of Commerce to speak with them about what boats had good reviews and which did not. Based on her recommendations we booked with the Marlin and had a fantastic trip. We have since fished with them 3 or 4 more times after that. Every time we have fished with them we have hooked Marlin. I don't believe that without her time and effort we would have had such a great time. Since that first trip with her I have booked several trips back to the Caribbean all Mexico, Las Vegas and San Diego. Every time she has found us the best value in four plus star resorts. I enjoy the ability to speak with her when ever I have questions or concerns and it is always the same person. Something you don't always have dealing with internet travel. I can't say enough positive with my experiences with Karyn and will continue to use her far into the future. The experience and advice she brings to our travel you won't find anywhere else.
I just finished my 4th trip booked by Karyn and Imagine Tours and once again I was happy with the entire trip. Karyn took the time to help me sort through all the resorts and find the one that best suited me and my guests. We never had to do any of the bookings on our own. The all-inclusive options, the airfare and all the details were taken care of before we left the house. I was quite happy with all the follow-up calls to see that we were ready and she always asks how everything went when we return. Everything was presented before the trip, documents always arrived on time and I was always amazed how many things were included such as transfers and insurance. She always is sure to customize the experience no matter who my travel partners are. I can highly recommend Karyn and Imagine Tours and Awesome Adventures.
Excellent service all expectations were met.
Karyn is amazing! I have been using her for over 8 years now. She is full of knowledge when it comes to travel. She is very accommodating and works hard to please her customers. I wouldn’t travel anywhere without booking through Karyn. I place 100% trust in her. I have gone on destinations to many countries from my Honeymoon to pure Caribbean and Jamaican experiences with my family. Thank you Karyn! We love you. XOXO
D & M 35th Anniversary
Imagine Tours Customers Since 2008
This place was amazing — best service of any resort I have been too. The place was immaculate — all we did was eat, drink and sleep. It was the most relaxed I have ever been on vacation — which I needed.
We spent almost every day on the beach. There is a lot of seaweed but it is right on the shore, so all you have to do is walk through it and the water is clear. They also had trucks running every day all day cleaning the seaweed off the beach.
I would definitely do the excellence club again — private beach with great service. We even ordered food form the beach. The rooms were great but the private pool on the roof was unnecessary — barely used it.
Almost everyone we met had been there multiple times (one couple 14 times) or was already planning on booking for next year.
We did a catamaran snorkeling trip — which was lots of fun, good snorkeling and walked around the island for awhile.
Otherwise we really felt no need to leave the resort. The spa was great — massage and hydro-therapy.
Lauren & Kevin
Karyn was just absolutely incredible! She focused on what we wanted(a no kids, romantic resort), and stayed within our budget. She had a lot of input on good places, and experience with the resorts. There was NO pressure to buy a trip from her, it was nice to get all the info and pricing without an obligation. The room and resort she helped us book were absolutely amazing!
Karen has been booking all my vacations for over 5 years since she coordinated our daughter’s beautiful destination wedding in Mexico. She seems to have the “inside scoop” on the all-inclusives we book – food, entertainment, activities, etc. Either by personal experience or her network. She has never let us down and we have always stayed at fun beautiful resorts — Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Antigua, Aruba and of course Mexico!
This year I was fortunate enough to be able to take my granddaughter on her first trip to Italy. I cannot tell you how impressed and pleased with all the work and attention to detail that Karyn put into this trip. It was everything my granddaughter and I could have hoped for and more. She went out of her way putting together our tours, drivers, guides and accommodations. Doesn’t get better than that! Karyn never disappoints and goes out of her way to provide a worry free vacation. My sincere thanks to you Karyn from both Gianna and myself.
Deb and Bill
Karyn did a wonderful job organizing our “first time” cruise. We never could have gotten all the details together. It was a pleasure working with her.
Kelly and Nick
Our Bahamas wedding was absolutely amazing…everything I could have imagined and more. The resort is gorgeous and the staff is so great…very friendly, extremely helpful, and just overall NICE. The beach is beautiful and not crowded, and the ceremony location we chose was perfect. The food…ohmygosh, the food!…was so delicious and my favorite part of the trip was the candlelight dinner on the beach. Ever After made it so easy to plan my destination wedding….I really didn’t have to worry about anything. Karyn provided me with suggestions and was very knowledgeable about each resort we looked at. I am so happy she suggested Emerald Bay…..they made my dream wedding come true!
Dru & Bob Kownacki
We wanted to thank you for all you did to make Jason and Allison’s wedding a great success. Everyone had a great time. The venue was ideal, the travel and resort arrangements were perfect as was the beach and weather.
Many of our guests commented that this was the best wedding they had ever attended. I would have to agree.
Bob & I were upgraded to a wonderful suite with a gorgeous view of the beach. We just loved it. The private limo was a great extra!
If anyone is looking for a venue for their destination wedding I would definitely recommend the Il Dorado Maroma.
I cannot say enough good things about Karyn! When looking for a travel planner so many worries were going through my head. I talked to several different people at once, not being satisfied with anyone. I have numerous calls from different companies, one straying me away from my ideal spot, and another ignoring all my messages. I kept thinking to myself, there going to cheap me out of my money, I’m going to settle for something I don’t want, and I’m going to regret all my decisions. I wanted someone who would ease that stress, then I found Karyn with Imagine Tours! I must tell you planning with her has been a blast, and like I had wished STRESS FREE. I had even offered to pay her a tip for her time, and she refused. If you want someone who enjoys what she does, takes time out of her schedule to answer any questions or concerns you might have, she is for you! She does well to organize exactly what you ask for within budget, and even sends you extras for your trip to help others help you towards that dream vacation your wishing for! If you tell her you want to go to Rome she will make it happen! Karyn If your reading this, I cannot thank you enough. We haven’t gone on our trip to Costa Rica yet and have already recieved great service, I cannot even imagine what It’ll be like once we are there! And I do not regret absolutely anything with booking with her. Any trip that I plan on doing will be with Karyn!…
I would highly recommend using Karyn at Imagine Tours & Awesome Adventures for all of your planning and travel needs. I have booked several trips through Karyn and she has always been a pleasure to work with. She is very professional yet personable and always willing to help find the best destination for your trip, even when you don’t know what you’re looking for yourself. I love that’s she well-traveled and can offer honest opinions based on her own experiences and experiences of her customers. Karyn truly takes the time to understand what you are looking for in your vacation…whether it be relaxation on a beautiful beach, a family trip filled with lots of activities and excursions or a trip on a budget. I have always been a do it yourself type of traveler, researching and booking all of my own vacations, until I met Karyn about 6 years ago. Now even when I find a great deal on my own, I feel compelled to call Karyn to get her thoughts. I always feel confident that I’m going to a nice place if Karyn’s blessed it, you can’t always say the same about travel reviews you read online. A lot of people think that using a travel agent means that the trip is going to cost more well I can assure you that’s not the case!! Although I’ve never had to reach out to Karyn on any of my trips, there is a true sense comfort knowing that if something goes wrong she’ll be there to help! I couldn’t see myself using anyone else for my travel needs and would encourage anyone that’s looking for an amazing vacation, without the second guessing, to use Karyn – you’ll be happy you did!! Thank you Karyn for all of the time and effort you put in to assure my travels are always enjoyable! I can’t wait for Jamaica in November!
Allison and Jason
We had a great time! Everything was absolutely perfect. The staff was amazing, they were so friendly and attentive. Our guests had a great time, they all loved the resort and cannot wait to go back! Jason and I can’t wait to go back too! I can’t say enough about how amazing it was! Thank you so much for all your hard work, everything went off without a hitch.
Autumn and Sean S.
Sean and I were married on February 26, 2011 in Costa Rica at the Riu Guanacaste. It was an amazing day, every detail turned out even better than we hoped for.
Sean and I are impressed with Karyn Rae Fallon, our wedding planner. Just to sum it up, we plan to use Karyn for all of our future travel plans, even if it’s just two hours up the road to Washington DC or Virginia Beach. She is awesome. It helped that she was fun to talk to for the past five months of wedding travel planning, but the quality of her recommendations for hotels and activities was exceptional.
Karyn suggested the Riu because it fit our budget and she said the hotel was a beautiful spot, and she was right. All our 20 guests were mesmerized with the scenery at the resort, the rooms were pleasing and the food was plentiful and delicious.
Not only did Karyn help us plan a wedding location which I would have only thought possible in my wildest dreams, but she helped my husband plan a 7 day honeymoon across most of Costa Rica full of surprises that I will always remember. The hotels she recommended were beautiful and had some of the best food in Costa Rica and I think in the world! The shuttles that she coordinated between adventures were so prompt and reliable which made for a stress-free experience that we really needed after months of wedding planning.
We truly enjoyed all the unique places she introduced to us, especially the Pacuare Lodge where we can’t wait to visit again soon. We had such a special week-long adventure together; I actually cried when we were leaving Costa Rica.
What started out in September 2010 as a Google search on the internet for destination wedding planning has resulted for us in February 2011 a memory of a very special, intimate wedding experience. Furthermore, we now have a great relationship with someone will will look to for years for all our travel plans together as a married couple. Sean and I want to thank you for making our wedding dream come true.
Karyn was such a knowledgeable Destination Wedding Specialist for my wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on May 19, 2011. Initially, we had our minds set on getting married in Spain at a beach resort. Our first Destination Wedding Specialist struggled to accommodate our request as she was having trouble finding a reputable vendor to coordinate a symbolic ceremony.
After several weeks of back and forth calls, I decided it was best to switch to a coordinator who was more experienced and knowledgeable to guide us through the process and help us make the best decision for our wedding. I was switched over to Karyn Fallon and right from the start, she began tackling our requests, providing us with information immediately so we could make an informed decision.
After reviewing several options, Karyn had completed coordinated our wedding/honeymoon trip in one weekend. We decided to get married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic at the Paradisus Punta Cana and honeymoon in Barcelona, Spain. Karyn did an excellent job of selecting accommodations that offered luxury and affordability. She was very professional and courteous, answering all questions and always notifying me if she would be away.
I had a wonderful trip and definitely plan to work with Karyn in the future!
Thank you so much for your superior service on my special day!
Karyn has been the best travel agent we have ever worked through, and making many unusual international trips, this says a lot! She has been creative in helping us with some out of the ordinary trips, diligent in her follow up, and very important, assisted in finding us discounted fares and lower pricing than other agents. Karyn has been a tremendous source of support and I trust her judgment and follow through.
From The Knot – We just booked our HONEYMOON!!!
13 nights in Costa Rica and 11 of those nights are all inclusive and the other two are at a 5 star hotel woo hoo I couldn’t be happier right now. I know a lot of you have been asking about travel agents lately. We were initially planning on booking ourselves, but I had met a travel agent at one of the bridal shows. Well I talked to her for awhile and told her she was more than welcome to get us some pricing and we’d take a look. It turns out it was a very good think I picked up her call!!! She is getting us pretty much the same pricing if not better than we could have done ourselves online, probably better because the 2 non inclusive nights are at a really nice 5 star hotel. She is available 24 hrs a day while we’re gone in case anything goes wrong. She also has someone on the ground in Costa Rica to help with any problems that may arise. She also can book Tours, and does Honeymoon Registries. For those interested Her name is Karyn from Imagine Tours.”
Your name was mentioned on theknot.com as someone who could help us plan an amazing Costa Rica honeymoon! Our wedding is August 16, 2008, and we are looking for a good mix of adventure and romance within a 10 day honeymoon. One of our biggest decisions in deciding on a honeymoon was location, due to the fact that we are getting married in peak hurricane season! We really wanted a beautiful, affordable location that provided a lot of adventure as well, so right now we are very interested in Costa Rica, and we would love to find a travel agent that can help us plan our dream vacation!
Kory & Samantha
Samantha and I just returned from our honeymoon on Monday, and everything was absolutely perfect!! I just wanted to say thank you so much for the recommendation of Valentin, as you thought we absolutely loved it! The resort was gorgeous and we had an amazing time! One amazing thing we found about the resort were the photographers that they have around, they took amazing pictures! We were quite impressed by the food. The final night of our stay we did a dinner on the beach which I would highly recommend, our table was set up 10-15′ away from the surf right on the sand, extremely romantic! The food was about the same as any where else on the resort, but the atmosphere was well worth the extra expense.
We ended up doing two tours while we were down there as well, a snorkel trip through Barakuda, the group that runs the dive center on the resort, and also a swim with the dolphins trip through Olympus with Dolphin Discovery. The swim with the dolphin experience was very cool and definitely something I would do again!
Once again thank you so much for pointing us in the direction you did, it was such an amazing week!
Christopher & Courtney’s Honeymoon Dominican Republic
Our first day of marriage was a trying one. As we were packing on Sunday to leave on our honeymoon in Mexico, breaking news regarding the flu outbreak started making headlines. As the situation worsened I decided to call Karyn as I did not think traveling to Mexico was a good idea. Karyn agreed and suggested Dominican Republic instead. Unfortunately this was Sunday afternoon, less than 12 hours from our scheduled departure to Mexico. There was no manager at the resort in Mexico to approve a refund for our cancellation and no manager at the resort in Dominican Republic to confirm if space was available. Neither resort could give Karyn an indication of whether they could accommodate our requests until Monday. Regardless, Karyn was confident that she could take care of it Monday morning we were traveling, so we got on a flight headed to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic with no ideas where we were staying!! We landed and called Karyn to see what she was able to do. Much to our DELIGHT, there was a car waiting for us and they took us straight to the Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana. This is a BEAUTIFUL resort that was absolutely perfect and just what we had hoped for. Once we got settled in we learned that Karyn had also gotten us a FULL refund from the Mexico hotel that cancelled hours before arriving! We were able to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. Karyn’s professionalism and willingness to help under trying circumstances was the only reason it all worked out for us. We highly recommend Imagine Tours and Awesome Adventures. Thanks Again Karyn! Christopher & Courtney
Read What Imagine Tours & Awesome Adventures Customers Are Saying
When I think of Karyn Fallon, my travel consultant, the following comes to mind:
1. She is an excellent listener. She never tries to push her agenda on me. She asks key questions to help her generate some ideas for trips when I’m not sure where I want to go. And she pulls together the most incredible adventures!
2. She responds very promptly to emails and is not afraid to pick up the phone. She gives personalized attention and I always am made to feel like I’m her most important customer. I never feel rushed when talking to her.
3. She stays within my requested budget and does not try to upsell me on features that don’t interest me.
4. She is so patient. I am a pretty focused person, but when it came to my honeymoon, my mind was all over the map. Karyn lovingly researched price quotes and different locations and helped guide my husband and I towards Fiji. It was a trip of a lifetime and we continue to talk about it on a daily basis.
5. She has great experience, she knows what she’s talking about, she loves her job and she cares about her customers. Her compassion shines through in her tailor-made itineraries, her organization and timeliness in getting documents to me, and in her post-trip follow-up.
Karyn is a travel agent you can trust and I literally will never book another vacation without her!!
We had a fantastic time in Costa Rica and we both wished we could have stayed longer. We absolutely LOVED the Mega Combo Tour (zip lining, water slide, horseback ride, hot springs) as well as the whitewater rafting! What great adventures and we really felt like we got a great dose of excitement as well as some much-needed relaxation by the pool with our fruity drinks! Everyone at Swiss travel was awesome and the tour guides were very kind, informative and professional.
Overall though, we absolutely loved Costa Rica and would definitely revisit the country. From what little I saw, I can certainly understand why you almost moved there!!!
And, the first thing I did when we got back on the airplane was open the in-flight magazine to the world map to start thinking about where our next adventure will be!
I want to thank you again for providing us with yet another great trip! I’m still dreaming about fried plantains and volcanoes! Looking forward to working with you again in the future. Christine Petersen
Lena & Mark – St. Lucia
Thank you so much for making my Wedding/Honeymoon absolutely wonderful and stress free! Mark and I had the most wonderful time in St. Lucia. We didn’t have to worry about the little things because you made sure we had everything covered before we left. The best surprise was finding out that we saved hundreds of dollars on the Wedding package right before we left! Thanks, Karyn!
Don & Pam
We have always been able to depend on Imagine Tours (Karyn) making the impossible possible. We can’t thank you enough for all the support you have given us.

Cindy E. – Explorean
I know Mike talked to you about how wonderful our trip was but I, too, wanted to thank you for finding the perfect trip for us. We had an unbelievable, fantastic experience at the Explorean. I have been showing pictures and telling the teachers at my school about our great trip. Several have expressed an interest so I gave them your card. I have told them that all they have to do is tell Karyn what you are interested in and she will find the perfect place. Thanks, again, for arranging our great trip.
Richard H. – London
My whole family wanted to take a trip to London this summer and we were a large group of 18. Thanks to Karyn, we were able to stay together the entire trip including hotel, tours, transportation and flights. One of our best vacations to date.
Jesselynn & Joseph B. – El Dorado Royale
My new husband and I spent 7 wonderful days during the month of May at this amazing resort. After reading a lot of reviews online I had no idea what to expect, but all that was completely wiped away when we got there. I can honestly say we were in paradise and it was apparent immediately.When we got there we walked into and amazing lobby where champagne was served to us. We were then brought to our rooms via a golf cart which was really nice because our driver showed us around the resort and gave us an idea on how things worked. When we walked into our room I was more than happy. It was so clean and the set-up was gorgeous. We had a bottle of champagne waiting for at our Jacuzzi. We also had a patio off our room that included a hammock and some chairs which we used some mornings to have breakfast and relax. We just want to thank Karyn for all she did for us. Not only did she help us set up a registry for our honeymoon she made everything so easy for us. Everything ran smoothly, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Dr. Tobi in the Mexican Riviera
My friend and I needed a great escape with some sun and fun, and we used Karyn to send us to the Mexican Riviera. It was absolutely amazing. Iberostar was everything we could have asked for. The resort was huge, and I did actually get lost a few times, but there was so much to do every day. The beaches were long and clean, the employees were willing to do everything and anything to make your stay the best, there were fun activities to do all day every day, and the food and restaurants were outstanding. I would recommend Imagine Tours and Awesome Adventures and I have to all of my friends who have used Karyn to go to numerous places. The only bad thing is that I haven’t gone back yet!

More Rave Reviews from Imagine Tours & Adventures LLC Satisfied Customers
We used Karyn Fallon from Imagine Tours who was recommended to me by another woman I met on the Knot. She is based in NH but we did everything over the phone and through email.
She was able to get us better prices than we could have found on our own. We went to Costa Rica and She, herself, was traveling in Egypt while we were in Costa Rica and she kept calling her Costa Rica based contact , checking in on us, to make sure all is well. I was apprehensive about using a travel agent myself, but we didn’t need to worry about a thing. She provided us with sample itineraries we tweaked it and then ended up booking it.The best part about using her, was the company that she originally had booked us through in Costa Rica went out of business and she rebooked us for the same price before we knew anything went wrong! It was well worth using her!
Thank you so much! Everything was fabulous. I was impressed with how smooth everything went. All our transfers were right there waiting for us when they promised, everything. Thanks again.
Danette & Michael
I can’t say enough good things about the services that Karyn provided to my fiancé and I in planning our honeymoon. We wanted to get to Italy so badly but thought it was way out of our price range…but Karyn was able to put together an incredible package that we could afford
Before our trip, Karyn would send me advice as it came to her (i.e.: bring a scarf to the Vatican to cover my head, etc.) and was available day and night to answer my vacation questions. Her influence came in the most handy in Rome. In Venice we received a notice that our Rome hotel had overbooked itself and we were being put up instead at a much nicer (and much more expensive) hotel that would be covered at the price of the original hotel.
The hotel was incredible and would have been WAY out of our price range had we originally booked it We wanted to stay another night (Karyn had warned us that we would want to, but I didn’t listen to her!!) so we contacted Karyn from Rome and she quickly gathered pricing on flight changes, room prices, transfer arrangements.
I will never book another vacation without Karyn, I only wish I had found her sooner!
Kame and Tom
The vacation was amazing! Without hesitation, we would recommend Hotel Kioro! Hands down the nicest place we’ve ever been to. From what we heard from the locals, Hotel Kioro is the best resort to stay at in that area and we agree! Accommodations, staff, and grounds, everything was great. The excursions were AWESOME! The horseback riding was fun, safe, and beautiful – a great way to see the countryside. The zip-line was the coolest thing we’ve ever done. Also very safe, the guides were pleasant and fun. The vacation was GREAT!! We would definitely recommend Costa Rica – the volcano is a MUST SEE. The Tour company did a great job, all of our transfers were private. Thanks for all your help.
Stephanie & Bill – Safe and Sound in Costa Rica
The trip thus far has been great. Jacamar tours have been absolutely fantastic – the tours have all been great and the tour guides (Giovanni, Roberto and Andre) very friendly and knowledgeable. I would HIGHLY recommend and use them again. We were spoiled with the private tours (thank you so much Christian!)The hotel has been great (Montana de Fuego) – the people very friendly and the accommodations very clean and beautiful from both the suite and the grounds. Ah – the BEST restaurant in La Fortuna – Nene´s, which is off the main drag. Its more of a local place, but Jimmy (the bartender) and Herman (one of the waiters) were great and the food was absolutely to die for – if you are here in this area, try them and try the garlic sea bass. Okay – need to get ready to check out, but just wanted to check in - it was just wonderful and we look forward to working with you more in the future (I’m already working on Bill about Eygpt, etc.)
Thank you so much once again!
Hi Karyn,:) We’re having a great time – it’s just amazing how quickly the trip has gone by!!! Christian is a great partner here for you and happy that you’ll get to meet him on your trip down here. Thank goodness we are in the best of hands … we are going to try your dinner recommendation as well.
Hi Karyn, Dan and I got back from our Honeymoon last Friday, and I wanted to thank you for everything. We had a wonderful time, and I will continue to recommend you to my friends and family! Thanks!
Laura & Corey D. ~ Egypt
We couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon. We would recommend Egypt to everyone and hope one day to return to the Red Sea for another vacation. Thanks you so much for helping us plan this amazing trip we will always remember our honeymoon as the most amazing place we have ever been.
Todd and Abby
Karyn, I wanted to thank you for your hard work in arranging our Jamaica trip and for all your updates till it’s cancellation. We continue to look forward to using you to book our next vacation and it makes me feel good to know I can always call you whether for pricing or information or advice. You are always positive, patient, and kind, and your passion for your job and for people shines through the phone every time we talk. Todd and I have been nothing but blessed since we met you. You’ve always allowed us to go places we’ve never thought possible.
Karen & Gord – Costa Rica
Our trip to Costa Rica was unbelievable. The country has something to offer everybody. Whether it be the rain forest, volcanoes or beach. We are a beach family and the beach at our hotel, The Flamingo, was awesome. The sand was white, the beach clean and the waves huge almost too big to body surf on some days. The resort was clean and the staff very friendly. There is only one restaurant but the meals were good and we always found something different to eat at dinner. We did eat at two local restaurants, one that was just outside the resort. called Marie’s. The food very great and the prices at the restaurants were remarkably inexpensive and worth the trip. We went on two half day trips. One was white water rafting on the Colorado river and the other was a must do canopy tour. Our kids ( 11, 14, and 16 yrs) thought this was the best trip we have taken and I have to agree. You can’t beat the weather and although the Pacific isn’t the crystal clear blue of the Caribbean it was more fun. I could go on about how fantastic our trip was but I must comment on the personal service we received from Karyn. Yes she got us there but she also called us our first night and I’m sure was influential in resolving a room problem ( our room was not adjoined to our kids room) and also stopped by the resort to see it for herself. It was a pleasure to do business with her! Thanks Karyn.
Stephanie’s trip to Costa Rica
Karyn is the best agent I’ve used for leisure. She loves her job and is just incredibly thorough and dedicated to it and her clients. Great follow up / always on top of things. As mentioned, she pulled the mean feat of getting Bill and my honeymoon together in less than 10 days, saving us time, stress and money (and works with any budget) along the way. Her service didn’t stop after she sold the trip to us – she (and Christian – her point person in Costa Rica) was in constant contact with us while we were on our honeymoon to make sure things were going well for us. We had a slight snafu while on our trip and Karyn was immediately there for us. As uber organized as I am, I felt more than comfortable following Karyn’s guidance. I cannot recommend her enough – really just terrific.
