An Incredible trip to Alaska – Dear Michael:
Joan and I want to thank you for arranging the wonderful trip to Alaska. This was truly one of our favorite trips, and we are so appreciative for the excellent planning and advice you gave us.
Your suggestion for an extra day in Anchorage was exactly the right thing to do. We enjoyed the time there, as well as feeling rested when we joined the tour on Monday. Our stays in beautiful Talkeetna and Denali were great, and the train rides to both places most enjoyable, with wonderful meals. The highlight of that part of the tour had to be the day spent in Denali National Park. The scenery was spectacular and the many sightings of wildlife was almost unbelievable. We could not get over our luck to have seen fourteen grizzly bears, as well as many caribou, moose, red foxes, etc. It was the experience of a lifetime. The day in Fairbanks was a little rainy, but did not interfere with our plans at all. In fact, that was the only rain we saw the entire two weeks. I cannot begin to praise enough the professionalism of the guides. They attended to all our needs, were most informative, and fun throughout.
The second week on the Radiance of the Seas was perfect. Wonderful accommodations, good food, and more breath-taking scenery. We are so glad you suggested the float plane ride over the glaciers. That was not only beautiful, but at the lodge where we ate delicious salmon, we had the fun of watching the black bear that wandered into the back yard.
It was a fantastic trip, and again, Michael, we are grateful to you for your usual expertise in planning it for us. We look forward to the next vacation you arrange for us.
With much appreciation,
September 10, 2009
My first positive impression of Magic Happens came in 2003 – My first positive impression of Magic Happens Travel came in 2003 when I was surfing the net one night looking for a travel destination. I requested some information on a destination and was surprised when I received an immediate response from Magic Happens Travel owner Michael Weil, who was putting in another of his frequent late nights at the office.
Since that time, Magic Happens Travel has become our trusted source of travel information and planning. They know when to go, where to stay, and what to do to get the most for your travel dollars.
My wife and I are retired and thought that travel to exotic locations may be beyond our means, but Magic Happens Travel has guided us to delightful adventures and destinations in the Caribbean, Europe, Australia, Tahiti, and the Mediterranean. And Magic Happens Travel already has set up for us a Switzerland and Rhine River trip for the fall and a South American cruise next spring.
My wife Gail and I thought we had seen most of what the Caribbean had to offer by taking several whirlwind cruises of the eastern, western and southern Caribbean. Sure, we had visited the islands and could say that we'd been there, done it; but something was missing. When Debbie Kaiser at Magic Happens Travel helped us realize that there was much more of the islands to experience and to enjoy after the cruise ships depart at 5 PM for the next port of call, it was an awakening and the start of a wonderful series of island adventures.
All the Caribbean islands offer beautiful beaches and views of the ocean, but Debbie took into account our travel lifestyle, budget, and interests and set up wonderful, reasonably priced one-week vacations to truly unique destinations in Aruba, St. Thomas, and St. Marten that we never would have found on our own.

Extremely attentive and helpful... – Debbie is an extremely attentive and helpful agent. She is more than willing to go that extra mile to help you get the most of what you want for your vacation.
She has been to so many resorts and great locations, which makes her more knowledgeable than many other agents.
We were recommended to Debbie from a great friend, and we have and will continue to recommend and use Debbie for all our travel endeavors!

My husband and I just returned from the most wonderful vacation at the Excellence Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Thank you, Debbie, for finding such a fantastic place for us! We never would have found this without your help. We're already talking about a return trip, so you can expect another call from us.
What a FANTASTIC trip! – Michael -
I wanted to take a few minutes after our FANTASTIC Africa trip to thank you and your staff at Magic Happens Travel for all the prep work you put in before we left, the magnificent personal service provided during the trip, your concern for the four of us who were taking an extra trip after you and the major group returned and the central repository you set up for us to share pictures. We enjoyed taking them and found it fun to share with others who were also proud of their pictures.
This makes the 5th or 6th trip we've taken with you and the NC Bar and, of course Lisa took our daughters on a European River boat cruise that you arranged, so we have had significant experience with Magic Happens.
The work you do for the group, the work you've done for us individually, and the welcome personal friendship we have established combine to make our trips effortless, memorable and truly the vacations we wanted.

We refer all friends to Debbie and Magic Happens Travel! – I must write and say that I can't imagine getting any better service from a travel agent than Debbie. I found her a few years ago when I got engaged and had my heart set on getting married at a Sandals.
I surfed the net for Sandals information and found that Magic Happens Travel is a Sandals Specialist. I was a bit apprehensive since I did not reside in the same city as MHT but decided to call and get some information just the same. I spoke with Debbie that day on the phone and have been a loyal customer ever since.
Debbie helped me plan my wedding, gave me expert advice on Sandals, and was a great source of information overall.
I am very detailed orientated and I had 20 questions for Debbie very week and she always answered them with pleasure. Our trip was wonderful and with Debbie's help everything went beautifully and without problems.
Since this trip we have booked several others with Debbie and have been more impressed each time. My husband and I have now moved to Ohio and we still use Debbie for all out vacations!!
I have also referred several of my friends that live in various states and all have been very pleased. Debbie and Magic Happens Travel keep up the good work and thanks for everything!
Outstanding Service! – Magic Happens travel has been the long time travel agent for the N.C. Bar Association. Any agency can sell a product, but it is the outstanding service by Magic Happens that makes it work for our members.
Not only do we travel as an organization with Magic Happens, but we also know our members go back to arrange their own personal travels with Magic Happens. That says a lot.
I think the success of the agency is driven by the personal attention given to all clients by the owner/manager Michael Weil.

We are very happy repeat customers! – We have been very happy repeat customers of Magic Happens Travel since going on our first cruise in 2003, which was the Alaska Brew Cruise.
We wanted to get married during the cruise and Michael recommended a wedding planner in Juneau, Alaska. The wedding was held in the beautiful
Glacier Gardens Rainforest and it was just perfect. After, we joined the rest of the brew cruisers at the Alaskan Brewery for lots of great beer.
We were on two other Alaskan Brew Cruises that Magic Happens arranged in 2007 and 2008. It is really fun traveling with other beer lovers and the special beer-themed excursions are top notch.
Both Michael and Marcie are extremely knowledgeable and excellent to work with. We have been on 20-25 cruises since the 2003 Brew Cruise and
would not even consider using another travel agency.

We have used Magic Happens Travel more than ten years. – In 2003 we asked Debbie to set up cruise for our 50th wedding anniversary. She made sure all our cabins were close to each other, that all of our group eat at the same time each evening. She did an outstanding job for us, the entire group had a great time. We really could not have had a better trip than this but later we did!
Because of Debbie we ask that she plan a cruise/tour to Alaska for us and this was truly an experience of a life time for each of us. We still talk of this trip.
You tell Debbie at Magic Happens Travel what you would like to do an she can come up with a plan for you be it a seven day cruise or fourteen cruise/tour to Alaska or Europe. You are in good hands with Magic Happens Travel and the crew there. Lawrence
