    Radisson Booked!!

    I have not been on this forum for a while, but just wanted to thank everybody for their help and advice back when I was asking about rooms at the Radisson. I booked a package through Guy at MCM tours for 7 nights in September to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I am so excited and feel good about th package deal we got ~ for 2:
    2798.00 total for 7 nights at the radisson, round trip airfare non stop Jet Blue JFK, all taxes and transfers; plus daily breakfast and lunch buffet, beverage credit;spa 2 $25.00 and casino play chips $200.00 (not really sure what that would be ~ but I will take it!!)
    At the time I was watching the airfares, and called MCM tours right away when there was that very short window when Jetblue dropped their fares(it was only for a few days) and booked the package deal.
    I used MCM based on recommendations here, and I feel so far that they are great ~ very nice to deal with, emailed confirmation right away with everything about the package, will answer any questions, etc etc ~ plus I feel that we got a good package deal ~ now just can't wait until we are there!!
    Thanks again everbody!!

    glad to hear that you got a deal that you felt was acceptable!!

    many folks swear by MCM/Player'sChoice.

    i had used them at least 7 yrs ago for a couple of AI tamarijn trips and for airfare only. i was quite satisfied. i felt they were very hospitable and had good prices. they are all about customer service.

    and of course the radisson is a great property

    We have used Guy for many, many years. We also stay at the Radisson for our vacation. You will not regret your decision. Have a wonderful trip. If you have any questions feel free to ask

    We also use Guy to book the package for the Radisson.. think this year is the 4th we've booked with him. Similar package and price from Boston non-stop on Jet Blue for early July. Only thing we do differently is take a bit of a credit for the ground transportation and take a taxi instead. Just have to get to the Radisson a few minutes quicker!

    We have booked with Players Choice a few times in the past. I can't say enough about their customer service. Sounds like you got a great deal at the Radison. We are staying at the Occidental and will be there In September too! Can't wait.

    Andrea,

    I wouldn't have thought of going through them for just airfare. What would be the reason to do that? Would they have availability that going directly to the airline would not? Better pricing? Maybe they get blocks of seats from the airline? Just wondering.....

    i do not know how MCM does it now, but maybe about 7 or 8 yrs ago their spectacular agent (lisa?) who no longer works there booked us some very good deals air only boston to nj to aua on continental.

    travel agencies (and i do not know about MCM)make little or no commissions on air. but in years past they did make a fair commission of about $25 per r/t ticket.

    with the internet it is now so much easier to find air.......frustrating but easier than in yrs past.

    Ursala and Guy are great as well.

    We have never dealt with Nick, but I hear only positive things about him as well.
