Jim & Tracy DeVriesVaradero, Cuba
We just returned from our trip to Varadero Cuba. Stayed at the Royalton. We were not sure where the best place would be, but were reassured by Sandy and she was right, because we really enjoyed it. We were told the food would be terrible, but we enjoyed it very much ( not bland at all!) and especially liked the buffet with its fresh grilled lobster and fish. Many things to chose from. The beach and water equally great! The staff were very friendly and helpful also. Thank you for your help again Sandy.
Impeccable Service Sandy organized our bucket list trip to Mexico for an over water bungalow vacation. Her attention to detail, trip preparation materials and follow up communication were impeccable. Our vacation was most enjoyable in large part because of her work. We will not hesitate to call on her for our next vacation and would certainly recommend her to others.

AnonymousAn Unforgettable Trip
Sandy, thanks for helping my fiancé and I plan such an amazing trip to China and Japan!!!! The tours were really great, we hit all the spots we wanted and it was so stress-free. All the sights were so picturesque! My most memorable day was when Eric proposed to me in Kyoto under the beautiful cherry blossoms (thank you for helping him plan this a year ago!)!!! This was definitely a trip we will never forget. Eric & I can’t stop talking about how fantastic your services are. We will continue to refer you to our friends and family!
AnonymousThis Testimonial is Heartfelt!!
“Sandy, again, thank you for all the work you did in arranging our trip to Italy, it was great! We were very thankful to have Sandy McLary of Travel by Sandy arrange our recent trip to Italy. Everything was perfect! From the fantastic airline choice, to the lovely hotels and exciting tours – Sandy did it all with ease and expertise. We usually book our own trips – a difficult thing when you don’t know the country or venues. Sandy chose our hotel locations and tours with maximum convenient and value. We had such a memorable time! We will definitely use Sandy’s services again – she’s friendly, professional and…local! Thank you, Sandy! ”
