Thanks for planning an incredible honeymoon to Dubai and the Maldives.
Ramadan was not an issue. All of the hotel's restaurants were open and on the street and in the malls, most were open but covered with a curtain over the door. It was so hot that we were not walking around outside a lot so not drinking water in public was not an issue. We went on a tour to Abu Dhabi and they offered us water on the bus, which was great.
Overall, travelling durinig this season was not an issue as you initially told us.
The desert tour was great, definitely a must do. We did a food tour which may have been our favorite, and we also did dinner in the sky which was a great experience.
MALDIVES - is pure paradise.We didn't realized how new the resort was until we arrived, but it was flawless. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, the water was so clear. It was like you were swimming in a pool. The food was delicious, lots of Asian food which we loved. It was a small resort, if we were to stay longer than 1 week I may switch resorts only to get a variety of food because there were only 3 restaurants. We did eat at 5.8, the underwater restaurant and that was out of this world, although expensive, so once was enough.
The night entertainment was okay, a couple nights were really good, but otherwise just okay. But since it is a such a small resort I'm not sure if it's worth for them to improve on that.
If money weren't a factor we would stay in the Maldives 2 weeks! Dubai, we were able to do most of what we wanted in 3 days. I think you could stay a fourth day, but I don't think it's necessary.
Overall, there really isn't much, if anything at all, we would change about our trip. And Emirates is definitely the best airline we have ever flown. For a 14 hour trip, it really did go by quickly!
So once again,thanks for planning this perfect honeymoon. We will continue to refer you to family and friends.
Cristina & Joe May 2018
I just wanted to thank you again for planning such an amazing honeymoon for us. The whole trip was surreal from beginning to end. Every hotel was immaculate. When I first contacted Maria to plan our honeymoon, I was all over the place of where I wanted to go & what hotels to stay at. She listened and took the time to plan the most perfect trip. She was even helpful when we were in Italy!!! We went from Taormina (her recommendation) to Sorrento, then to the magical Sardinia. Our favorite part of the trip ended up being Taormina. The hotel had the most breathtaking view of Isola Bella. Were so glad we found Maria from our good friends. She made the whole process seamless. We will definitely be using her to book all future trips.
Merete & Andrew July 2018
We absolutely loved every minute of our trip to Greece! Mykonos was definitely our favorite. We really loved the upbeat vibe and the beaches there. We really enjoyed visiting Santorini and Crete, as well. Our favorite part of Santorini was visiting the black sand beach and the Artemis Karamalegos winery (we did a tasting and had dinner there, which was delicious).
The trip was so relaxing knowing that all of our transfers and ferries were booked and everything went so smoothly. The hotels were all beautiful and so accommodating. The hotel in Mykonos was by far our favorite! So glad for these hotel recommendations .
We can’t thank you enough for helping us plan the honeymoon of our dreams! You were wonderful to work with and we will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for travel advice or planning in the future!
All our best,
Amanda and Karan August 2018
We just landed last night and we wanted to reach out to say THANK YOU for planning such an unbelievable, incredible honeymoon. It was as flawless as travel could get and everywhere we stayed was beyond words amazing. This is a trip that we will NEVER forget, and we will definitely keep you in mind for future travel plans. We loved it, and we are so, so happy.
Dana and Mikey July 2018
When I was planning our trip to Greece in March of 2017, I pondered whether or not to plan it ourselves or have a travel agent plan it for us. Since I work full-time, I didn't have much time to do it on my own and that was the major reason I chose Maria-Skies The Limit. It was our luckiest day when I serendipitously found Skies The Limit on the internet!
I went to meet Maria and described to her exactly what I wanted to do. At that point in time, I had narrowed our trip down to either Greece, Sicily or Cyprus. Maria recommended Greece and she planned for us the most fabulous trip ever! It turned out to be the trip of our lifetime!
I can't give Maria enough kudos! She planned everything for us from start to finish. The whole process was flawless and it was Maria who did all the work!
We spent almost two blissful weeks in Greece which is indeed one of the most splendidly gorgeous countries on earth. Maria recommended which islands to visit which included Rhodes, Mykonos and Santorini. We never had to worry about anything! She even planned limo service pick-ups everywhere we went. NOT ONCE was there a no-show - which is IMMENSELY important to any traveler. Maria\'s planning turned out perfect - we traveled in July/2017 and landed in Athens. The hotel Maria chose for us was deluxe and very centrally located. The food was top drawer and the accommodations spotless. We stayed in Athens for 4 nights. Maria even planned Athens\' tours for us. We then flew to the island of Rhodes - the largest of Greece\'s Dodecanese islands - and spent 3 nights there. Again the hotel Maria chose for us was a hit! The room was spotlessly clean and the food was delicious - all Greek delicacies and the freshest fruits, vegetables and home baked breads at our fingertips. Maria even arranged our renting a car! We then flew to the island of Mykonos which is in the Cyclades group in the Aegean - another enchanting island but different from Rhodes. We stayed 4 nights on Mykonos. Each island that Maria chose for us was totally different. We got a real taste of Greece and its foods and wines. Mykonos was also magnificent. The hotel she booked was out of this world with breathtaking views from our balcony. There was even a private little swimming pool! And the breakfasts were indescribable. We had never seen such an array of different foods, cheeses, yogurts, dried fruits, nuts and home baked breads and muffins. We ate each morning on the veranda with a beautiful view of the large swimming pool, the Aegean Sea shimmering in the sun below and the mountains. Maria planned Mykonos tours for us which included a boat trip to the tiny island of Delos where the ancient antiquities sparkled in the sun. It is a Greek island and archaeological site and the mythological birthplace of Apollo. We learned so much on this tour - all!
planned by SkiesThe Limit. Maria even booked a spectacular lunch for us that was prepared and cooked by a chef in her home!
From Mykonos we took a ferry to the island of Santorini - the sparkling diamond of Greece. We thought we were in heaven! And again SkiesThe Limit hit it big time with our hotel - on the side of a mountain cliff overlooking the little town of Oia - it's a coastal town on this Greek Aegean island - a very special island at that since the town overlooks a vast caldera filled with water. I can't describe the sunsets and how superb they were. Maria also arranged day trips on Santorini which included a tour of a winery and a beach with black sand! We stayed on Santorini for 4 nights. We then flew back to Athens and from there to NY.
This trip was flawless and had everything to do with its planning. The thing that really impressed us was that upon our return, Maria contacted us and wanted to know about the hotels and their conditions so that she could continue to recommend them to other clients. Maria has also traveled to all of the countries she books tours in and is a first hand tree of knowledge!
We highly recommend SkiesThe Limit and Maria. You won't regret it!

Meagan and John Sept 2016
Thank you, the HONEYMOON was amazing. We had a wonderful time in Italy. Our Favorite cities was obviously Capri & Ischia and the views from Positano were breathtaking. Every hotel was above and beyond our expectations and had top notch service.Capri Tiberio Palace was our favorite. All of the hotels sent snacks and a bottle of prosecco upon check in.
But We loved Milan too & got spoiled here. Milano Westin Palace had us thinking that every hotel in Italy had Nespresso machines in the room.
Ischia as an island was unbelievable. Everything was so accessible. We rented a scooter and traveled everywhere on the island. Here, only the hotel concierge spoke English and no one else, thats the kind of Italy experience we wanted .The standout in Ischia for us was the Giardini Poseidon Thermal Pools. The Ferries & Tours were great. Hotels were great. The train was a breeze, what else can I say but THANKS AGAIN for putting it all together!!
It was the best trip of our lives! Everything worked out perfectly. Thank you so much for everything!
Michael & Maria Sept 2016
It was an AMAZING HONEYMOON visiting Amanpulo in the Philippines and 3 cities of Japan. We had the best time!!
Amanpulo was a dream. Never seen anything like it. Beaches were incredible, staff was out of this world. We felt like we were the only people on the island.
I fell in love with Tokyo. Aman Tokyo was incredible.
Staying at Gora Kadan in Hakone was an awesome experience, totally different and fun! I'm so happy we did it.
Kyoto is a beautiful city. The Ritz was very nice, but not on the same level as the Aman, but we expected this.
Overall the trip was amazing. Perfect mix of relaxing, spa, food, drinking, beach, city.
Thank you for your help, with hotel recommendations and expertise in putting this all together flawlessly.
As always, we will be in touch with our next vacation.
Nathalie & Matt Sept 2016
Our family trip was amazing. Exactly what we were looking for. The boys had a ball. I especially loved that it was an all inclusive...much easier with the boys! The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was great! The resturants were very good. Not one complaint with the food. All the food was delicious and the resturants were very accommodating if the kids didn't find something they liked on the menu. Everything was great. Highly recommend it!
Thank you again for all your hard work on this.You made our lives easier and I know everything went very smooth bc you planned everything for us so perfectly. The private car service to and from the airport was great too. They were easy to find at airport and right on time picking us up at hotel. Very professional and effecient so glad you arranged this for us as well. I will absolutely use your services again and recommend you.
Thanks again for everything!
Elizabeth & Family NY August 2016

These shared experiences will last forever, thanks much !! Shirley & Girls NY Aug 2016
Thank you again for helping us book our trip to Riviera Maya Cancun. Everything went smoothly and the final document packet really helped make everything so easy. We really appreciate it. Your hotel recommendation was exactly what we wanted for our vacation.The hotel was absolutely beautiful, weather was perfect, and the staff were very nice! Best part of using your services is that you took away the stress and anxiety of planning the trip. With your knowledge, the final documents, and a step by step itinerary you made this process so easy. As first time international travelers this was exactly what we needed. There were no surprises or hidden charges. You have made us lifetime clients. Thanks Again,
Kristen & Nick NY August 2016
We would like to thank you for planning a perfect trip to three fabulous cities- Paris, Barcelona & Rome! We did not have to think about airplanes, hotels, the guided tours, airport transfers, etc.You made it so easy for us!
We definitely will contact you in the future to arrange our travel and will spread the word as well!
Thank you for expertise and professionalism.
AnnMarie & Walt, CT March 2016
My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Maria as our travel agent for the past few years and I count on her for all of our travel plans and reservations. Maria’s ability to put flawless travel packages together border on the magical. Whether it is a once in a lifetime Hawaiian cruise or a last minute family trip to Puerto Rico, she is there for all of us. Her knowledge and expertise of the travel industry has proven to be invaluable. She is always on top of everything from the moment we begin to plan our trip until we get home. Everything runs like clockwork and Maria is now handcrafting our next trip with our five week old grandson. Frank and Pat, NY 2015.
Maria's help was just what we needed to plan the perfect Hawaiian honeymoon! We were pretty overwhelmed trying to figure out the logistics of such a big trip (14 days, 13 nights!) and Maria was very patient helping us through the process. She was extremely knowledgeable and guided us in the right direction. We couldn't believe how smoothly everything went -- especially when you consider our trip included three islands, three resorts and two car rentals. Maria's advice on what to do while in Hawaii was great also. And, last but not least, having a bottle of bubbly waiting for us at each spot didn't hurt either!
Kevin & Caitlin , NY Sept-Oct 2015
Maria was recommended to us by our daughter and son in law who used her services for their Hawaii honeymoon. They were very happy with the arrangement she made for their trip. Now that we have returned from our trip to Hawaii we understand the reasons they were so happy.
First, Maria found excellent hotel accommodations in our budget range. Second, she provided the information so we could tailor our daily schedule for activities we were interested in. Third, she had first hand experience of Hawaii yet never presented her likes above our interest. Fourth, she responded quickly to any questions or requests.Once again, Thank you for your professionalism.
Cesar & Marisol, NY August 2015
Overall I am so glad we got linked together last year prior to Cancun you have been the best travel agent I have ever known. Trust me when I say I will continue using your services until I can't afford anymore vacations until you retire. You always have a way finding that perfect place for my vacation needs. Thanks so much for your help and making our Dominican trip a fantastic one that none of us will ever forget .
The trip was absolutely amazing - the stories Brittany and I had on this trip could make for one heck of a comedy movie. The hotel was beautiful the excursions we went on using the resort credit were great especially the spa day and catamaran - would highly recommend that to anyone you refer to Dominican. The rooms were beautiful and the honeymoon/ anniversary package is a really neat add on benefit ( which I didn't even realize we got until we showed up - so I am thinking that had to be a little surprise from you and words cannot thank you enough for that) funny story behind it was they thought it was our honeymoon so we just went with it LOL.
Food, like you said was average but the meal for the romantic dinner and the Brazilian steakhouse were my two favorite meals. Definitely start thinking of a good trip for us next year still want to do a Europe trip ... Aruba or Bahamas/ Jamacia .....Australia one day... And Fiji for the Honeymoon if I ever get married. As always I will be in touch! Thanks again !!
Anthony & Brittany, NC July 2015
I don’t where to begin in THANKING YOU!!!! We had an amazing time in Italy and we would not have created these beautiful memories if it wasn’t for you. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Your professionalism and experience was evident in how well planned the trip was. The hotels were beautiful and the tours were excellent even the kids stayed interested in what the tour guides had to say.
I was so overwhelmed thinking about traveling for 2 weeks throughout Italy with my family of five but you made it so easy having everything organized for me from day to day. It was so nice to not have to think about anything we just got up looked at our itinerary and went about our day. You had the vouchers for the tours and tickets for the trains it all worked out flawlessly. There was a perfect mix of tours and down time so that we were able to explore on our own as well.
I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all the hard work you put into planning this trip for us and we loved every minute of it!!
Your attention to detail and expert planning made this a trip I will always treasure.
Tricia & Jimmy, NJ July 2015
I have never been one to use a travel agent in the past, and now I am sure I will never travel without using one again! Maria Albano and Skies the Limit Travel made our trip to Turks and Caicos an amazing experience. We are very picky about vacation spots and what we want out of our time away. Maria listened to that and found a perfect match for us at Grace Bay Club. We had to change our original trip a few times due to unforeseen circumstances. She was flawlessly instrumental in arranging new dates without us loosing any money.
Maria is on top of her game, she advised us of possible hotel construction dates and when to avoid travelling to property, Next came the restaurant recommendation, links to excursions we may enjoy, etc.; Whatever we needed, she provided. We will absolutely travel to Providenciales again, and we will use Maria and Skies the Limit Travel to make that and all our future trips happen!
Claude and Sophia, NY May 2015
We have used Maria at Skies the Limit Travel for about ten years and for nearly a dozen trips. Maria works with us during every stage of the vacation process, which usually begins with selecting a location to visit. Here, Maria's decades of experience are evident as she effortlessly discusses the pros and cons of every destination. Her expertise on cruises/ islands is particularly astounding. She has either visited or has sent multiple parties to every place she recommends. As a result, there are never any surprises, which is a great thing when it comes to traveling. Maria also recommends restaurants, makes reservations, and basically handles every detail of the trip, so that when our vacation begins, we actually feel like we are on vacation! We recommend Maria to everyone we know. We feel grateful to have found her. She is the most seasoned, organized, intuitive travel agent we have ever worked with and we can't imagine planning a vacation without her. Thank you, Maria, for all your hard work. This year's family holiday cruise was great. We look forward to planning many more vacations with you!
Piero and Josephine, NY Jan 2015
We would like to Thank You for the hard work you did to make our honey moon perfect. It started with a few emails and phone calls with two complete strangers that didn't have clear direction on where they wanted to go. You simply asked us for a general budget and gave us options from Greece to Hawaii. After taking some time to understand the type of vacationers we were, along with the time we could afford to be away from work, you developed a two stop trip to the Caribbean. We flew into St Martin and took a quick ferry to Anguilla to the most beautiful resort and beach we have ever seen-Cap Juluca. This resort that you recommended and booked for us made for a great start to our honeymoon. After 5 days in paradise we headed back to St Martin for the next four nights of our trip. When we arrived at our hotel there we were greeted by a lot of renovations that neither of us knew about. With an email and phone call you went above and beyond to make sure we would continue to have the best honeymoon possible. You worked late into the night, switched us to another great hotel-La Samanna in St Martin. You also made sure we were compensated for our troubles. A week after our return you were still working hard to make sure we were completely satisfied.
We loved every minute of our honeymoon!! We couldn't have asked for a more romantic, relaxing 10 days!! Thank You so much!!
Mr and Mrs Peto, NY, Nov 2014
My wife and I have been using Maria for years—Disney cruises, ski trips out West, European adventures, Bermuda and the Bahamas. So of course when we were planning a trip to Napa Valley with four other couples, we called Maria. The getaway was flawless; from the same driver for five days, to the incredible hotel, to the detailed itinerary. Maria worked with local vendors to pre-arrange private wine tours and tastings as well as gourmet dinners for 10. We always have a great trip with Skies the Limit! Kevin and Susan, NJ Oct 2014
I just wanted to thank you again for the bottle of wine and for taking care of me again on a wonderful vacation!
I had such a good time on the cruise and cannot wait to plan the next vacation cruise.
I look forward to our continued business and am so glad uncle Johnny told me about you.
Thanks Again. Anthony & Brittany North Carolina Sept 2014
Our Hawaii honeymoon was amazing! We had a wonderful time. Thanks for all of your help and recommendations. You made this so easy.
We were in Kauai during the storm, and luckily, only got some rain for about a day or so. The weather was beautiful for the rest of the trip. We loved all of the islands, maybe Maui the most, because it had a little of everything. The hotels were all great, but our favorite was definitely the Four Seasons (no surprise there, I'm sure)! We thank you again for your help. We will certainly recommend you to friends, and keep you in mind for our future vacations.
Warm Regards, Krysten and Frank August 2014
Maria- a huge, belated thank you for the amazing trip you put together for me, my family and dear friends. We gave you a very challenging sporting event to organize on a short time frame and you totally came through. Your challenge was this: Indy 500 race, Memorial Day weekend, 9 people, very specific requirements for premium seat tickets, addition tickets for special events, precise hotel location and a tricky accommodation request, not to mention difficult transportation, all on a very short time frame and you nailed it perfectly! We loved all of the arrangements you made for us. You put an incredible amount of attention into every detail, which was not an easy task given how elaborate my husband’s requests were. But you did it all with true professionalism and a sense of humor. I truly enjoyed every one of our phone calls. You made us all very happy and now were all huge Indy fans. Can’t wait to start booking next year’s trip! Thanks again Maria for everything. Fondly, Irene & Cyrus (NY) August 2014
Thank you Maria for putting together the honeymoon of a lifetime! We had an amazing time in Hawaii! It was the perfect combination of relax and adventure. Maria’s service is impeccable. For us, it was like we were working with family. She gives great advice, recommends the best tours and most importantly knows what she's doing. The other great thing is that she will promptly get back to you if you have any questions - she’s on top of her game! With 5 flights, 3 hotels, 2 cars, and transfers, Maria handled it all!! She even sent a welcome gift to our hotel and in each hotel we were welcomed with flowers and champagne - it was very nice! We look forward to working with Maria on our future trips and will continue to recommend her! Thanks again!! Joe & Marissa NY, (July 2014)
Thank you so much on behalf on my husband and myself on the fantastic job you did for our honeymoon.The travel was smooth and uneventful. The stay at Sandals St Lucia La Grande was better then we could of imagined. We walked in to the room with fresh flowers and champagne. The staff was professional and impressive. The resort was spectacular. The entire staff addressed us by name and engaged in conversation throughout the stay. The food and drinks were delicious from local island selections to French, Italian or American restaurants everything was incredible. We definitely will be calling you in the future for our next vacation and telling all our friends about your fantastic service.
Thank you Thank you! Sincerely, Eileen (NY) July 2014
I just wanted to thank you for your guidance in planning and booking our family trip to Europe. The 3 hotels you suggested were wonderful. The West End in Paris was a quaint, European styled hotel centrally located for our needs; the Boscolo Prague was a beautifully designed and elegant hotel with wonderful amenities such as the spa; the Cascais Miragem outside of Lisbon was the perfect spot to relax on the beach in luxury, bike along the rugged coast, and have quick access to Lisbon. The connecting flights in-between cities was seamless, and we were able to book private tours in each city through the concierges of all three hotels. I look forward to using your services again when I travel, and again thank you for your professional assistance with this trip.
Sincerely, Deena (NY) June 2014
I would highly recommend Maria Albano, Skies the Limit Travel for booking travel abroad. Maria flawlessly prepared and booked an itinerary for a recent trip to Italy. I was somewhat reluctant to rely on the services of drivers, tours, high-speed trains and total strangers. With Maria’s knowledge, expertise, and professionalism everything went along without one problem. It was the trip of a lifetime. Thank you Maria! Valerie & Nicole April 2014
Our safari vacation was the trip of a lifetime! Kenya and Tanzania lived up to and beyond my expectations. I found little fault with the accommodations, food, friendly guides and excellent service. I am looking forward to crossing off the next trip on my 'bucket list' but I doubt that any other destination will surpass the beauty, excitement and satisfaction of my African Safari. Maria, we thank you for your expertise and services. Mickey (NY) & Audrey (MA), November 2013
My husband Harold and I cannot express the phenomenal service Maria Albano@ Skies the Limit Travel did for us. Our vacation to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji was fabulous and worry free. Thirteen flights in all and Maria handled it with ease. Even got us a flight out if New York the day before the big snow storm. Then checked up on us at our hotel in Los Angeles to make sure we arrived safe and sound. Who does that? Only Maria. She kept track of us on our month long journey and even sent us a "welcome home "e-mail" when we arrived home. We have gotten the best advice from Maria and she recommends the best tours in our travels through Europe, the islands, and now the South Pacific. No one does it better and to perfection, and makes us feel free to travel anywhere at any time. Maria knows her job and does it to perfection. Maria is the best! Harold & Tina, NY, March 2014
Last year, Maria planned an absolutely perfect honeymoon for us in Europe. So this year to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, my wife and I decided to travel to Australia (Port Douglas and Sydney) and Tahiti for two weeks and it was a no brainer to work with Maria again. Similar to our honeymoon, this trip was no less than magical! Maria always knows the hidden gems at each destination and helps make the trip completely stress-free and effortless. We refer Maria to all of our friends and cannot wait to have her plan our next trip! Thanks again! Jason & Alexandra, NY, Nov 2013
My Wife and I chose to visit South Africa for our honeymoon destination, but we knew nothing about the country or the surrounding islands for the second half of our trip. Luckily we found Maria Albano at a wedding exposition. Maria did extensive research to locate the best possible resorts that would make for the most amazing honeymoon experience. Maria was attentive to our many needs, and getting all our questions answered was an easy phone call away. My wife and I had an incredible trip, and we owe a great deal of that to Maria and her agency. If you are considering doing an African Safari we highly recommend researching the many resorts in Sabi Sands private game reserve. The resort in Sabi Sands that we stayed in was called “Leopard Hills”. The service and beauty of this particular resort was second to none in the area. For an amazing tropical island location in Mauritius the “Maradiva Resort” could not be beat. Our Villa was the most luxurious room that I have ever encountered, and the island itself was stunning.
Rest assure that you are in good hands with Maria. Thanks Again- Vincent & Carly Oct 2013
My husband & I travel often & were looking for a romantic destination to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary when we came across Maria from Skies The Limit Travel. She was very knowledgeable on all of our top picks & once we narrowed it down to the French Polynesia, Maria handled the rest. What an amazing trip! It started out with a few days in Papeete, proceeded by Moorea & then spent our actual anniversary in Bora Bora. All of our accommodations exceeded our expectations! It truly was our most memorable anniversary yet! We couldn't be any more pleased with our experience & look forward to future endeavors with Skies The Limit Travel. Thank you so much Maria for all your help & recommendations! - Carleen & Amaury G, NY July 2013
Thanks to Maria my whole family had a glorious time in breathtaking, fun and friendly Ireland! She gave us a perfect itinerary and excellent hotels in the best locations. All we had to worry about was seeing the sights, soaking in the beautiful scenery and enjoying the time we had to get the real flavor of this magical island. Wouldn't trust my travel plans to anyone else! - Sharon & Family NY July 2013
Maria, Thank you so much for another incredible vacation. We absolutley loved Jumby Bay, Antigua- a great recommendation !
This was our 1st Anniversary and will so be remembered.- Michelle & John NY June 2013
We met Maria at a bridal show among several tables of competing travel agents. Maria wooed us with her offer to provide local, personal services and she completed the offer with unsurpassed passion and professionalism. Skies the Limit Travel went the extra mile to find us the best value while meeting our requirements and exceeding our expectations. We felt like VIP customers from the moment we began the process with Maria, to the last day of our trip in the French Polynesian islands. She made clients of us and we plan to use Skies the Limit for all our future travel needs. - George & Alexandra , NY May 2013
I met Maria at a Bridal Expo. She was magnificent in planning our Hawaii honeymoon. We are successful "Generation Y " clients who use the internet for just about everything. We kind of think we know everything or at least can find it out. When I learned that "Skies" doesn't charge a service fee, we had nothing to lose but to try the agency's services. We were pleasantly surprised !!! Maria knew a whole lot more than we can ever have imagined. She is a true professional in her field. The ease of the process, the small details, great customer service, free honeymoon bridal registry and free honeymoon amenities made our trip a once in a lifetime. We refer her all the time. Thank you again Maria, you have made us lifelong clients. - Toni & Paul, NY
I cannot say enough great things about Maria Albano at SKIES THE LIMIT TRAVEL! She has helped me and my family arrange many amazing trips- from the rainforests throughout Seychelles to the beaches of Turks and Caicos, to the private villa in St Marten, to the private home in Jumby Bay and the slopes in Vermont, I couldn't speak highly enough about Maria's work and I truly recommend her to everyone. She is incredibly patient, always available, very detail oriented, and honestly knows how to please her clients. Thank you for everything Maria, and I look forward to more vacations to come!" - Nathalie, Ct
My husband and I got married this past July and thanks to Skies The Limit Travel we experienced the honeymoon of our dreams! We had always dreamed of going to Tahiti but never thought it would actually become a reality. Maria made the entire process so easy and stress free, we couldn't ever imagine having to plan a trip like this by ourselves, especially when planning a wedding at the same time. When traveling somewhere so far the last thing you want to do is worry and Maria took care of absolutely everything, all we had to do was show up. Maria went absolutely above and beyond on everything to ensure that we had the most wonderful honeymoon experience. We can't wait to book our next vacation with Skies The Limit Travel. It's refreshing to work with someone that is truly knowledgeable and passionate about their profession. Thanks for making our dream honeymoon a reality! - Tiffany & Ryan, NY
I have been using Skies the Limit for over 10 years. Maria is efficient and very detailed oriented. My first dealings with Skies the Limit, was aboard the NCL Dawn sailing from NY to the Florida/Bahamas. This was my first large group trip with well over 250 people from our community. What a great trip!! Everyone had a friend or someone to hang out with. The trip went very smoothly. Maria planned group dinners and cocktail parties at the various restaurants aboard the ship. When we docked she arranged for our own private group buses for a day at Disney and/or Universal Studios. She planned a gambling excursion to the Atlantis . This was no small task for such a large group. Everything went smoothly!! Thanks Maria for your services over the years. You are in good hands when you book your trip through Skies the Limit!!! - C.

Vacation planning on my own took me endless hours and caused me stress. That's why Maria from SKIES THE LIMIT has been planning our vacations for over 6 years. I'm not waiting on the phone or searching the internet for hours anymore. We have used SKIES THE LIMIT to book cruises, All Inclusives, family vacations and group vacations. What's lacking in society is that "personal touch." With Maria, she knows what my family looks for in a vacation. She knows her stuff!! I told her what I wanted in our European vacation to London and Paris and she put together the best vacation our family has been on. She also helped with the sightseeing excursions and found out about restaurants for me. She even saved us money!! Thank you !! - Maryanne & Family CT
My daughter was studying abroad in Florence, Italy. The family decided to take a trip to visit with her. I am not a comfortable traveler and do not like to fly and have little desire to venture to local vacations, let alone go to another country. Maria planned a trip for my family that was the experience of a lifetime for all of us. From the air to the hotels, to the tours, trains, and transfers there was not one thing that wasn't amazing. She walked us through it from beginning to end. We loved our trip and loved working with her. Spectacular! - Maddy & Family, NY
Maria, you made my traveling thru Europe, the Islands and the USA enjoyable and so easy. The tours you suggested were great and I am especially grateful of the time you took sitting with me going over each and every aspect of our tours. If there were questions I had you were quick to find out, and your patience of going over every detail of our trips made me a loyal client. But most of all I feel I made a great friend. Kudos to you, and thank you. - Tina , NY
Each and every vacation that Maria has created for my family has been amazing. Whether she planned big group trips, or family trips for me , she provides her personal touch and expert advice, ensuring memories are created and that we are happy every day throughout our vacation. - Martha CT
"My family took their first trip to Europe in 2012 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. When Maria plans a trip for her clients it is as if she is planning it for herself. Her experience, patience, follow through and attention to every detail made our Italy vacation the trip of a lifetime.- Carolyn, NY
I highly recommend using Maria Albano at Skies the Limit Travel for your next vacation or trip. She has booked several vacations for me over the years and the experience has been perfect everytime. She has great knowledge on different destinations, hotels, activities, etc. In addition, she ensures that I get the best price available. I have recommended Maria to several friends and colleagues and have heard nothing but positive feedback. I consider myself lucky to have such a fantastic travel agent. Thank you for everything! - Brian, NY
Our experience with Maria has been impeccable . She has been nothing but outstanding. When she plans out trips she works well with my family of 5. She addresses each person's wants and needs and also puts into consideration our budget. We recently had a 2 week trip planned to Spain for a family group of 13, but had to abruptly cancel it due to a tragic accident in my family. Not only did Maria take care of everything from top to bottom, but her motherly instinct kicked in and she did everything in her power to get all of us a full refund. She is not only is a travel agent, but she is a genuine person. We love her dearly and wouldn't think of using anyone else. We look forward to planning this Spain trip soon. - Doreen, NY
We have travelled with "Skies the Limit" for the past decade. Whether it's a large group- 200+ on a cruise, or a intimate celebration with just the family, the difference is in the details. Everything is attended to from wheel chairs for family members to champagne waiting to celebrate an anniversary. With Skies the Limit the vacation begins as soon as you pick up the phone. - Lori, NJ
Gloria and I would like to thank you for booking our vacation on the Mediterranean Cruise. It was a perfect itinerary, from the start to the finish. In Spain we were so impressed at the hotel you booked for us, it was like being on Park Ave. We were surprised when we got off the ship that you arranged for our luggage to be taken care of too. Everyone was looking for theirs and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you too for getting back to us so quickly and professionally whenever we had any questions prior to our trip.
Your services was just as great when you booked my granddaughter's vacation to Aruba. We know we can trust your advice and judgment when we want a great worry free vacation. - Johanna, NY
Maria is very thoughtful, indulging of pain in the neck clients like myself, recommends great places and knows exactly what I want at the best possible prices! Simply the best travel agent I have ever had! Thanks Maria.- Adam, NY
Our Trip to Italy in August 2007 was perfect. Maria created an itinerary my for family (me , my wife and 2 teenage Kids), that was enjoyable and memorable for all. The private drivers/tours which she arranged between the cities was the best. Her attention to detail is impeccable. - Anthony, NJ
There was a time before Maria from Skies the Limit that I researched, planned, and booked my own vacations. This took many hours on the Internet and on the phone which took time away from other activities that needed my attention. I knew Maria as my sister's neighbor and never thought about using her services until I mentioned to her at my sister's house how time-consuming all this vacation planning was. She suggested that I work with her instead of doing it on my own. I did just that and never regretted it. In fact, I don't know why I didn't go to Maria sooner. She's given me great travel suggestions and warned me away from places I should wait to visit. What I especially like about Maria is she spends time with you and I feel like I am dealing with a friend instead of just a travel agent. I know that Maria is always there to help me sort out any problems or questions I may have about the trip I've chosen. I enjoy working with Maria and will continue to do so. Thank you, Maria. - Linda C, NY
