Travel Expert
We have worked with Rey for many years and have always enjoyed the experience. Most of our travel has been river cruises in Europe but last year we did a trip to South Africa. Rey is very thoughtful, thorough and responsive.

The Winter Holidays in Southeast Asia
Our vacation was awesome! Thanks to your excellent expertise. Everything went smoothly Singapore was everything I expected to be and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel was over the top. We had a beautiful room facing the Bay. Delicious food, great shopping. My first time entering a Buddhist Temple. Everything in Singapore was excellent.We enjoyed visiting the Temples in Bangkok. Thank You. You are the best!

The best trip of our lives has been to Jamaica
My husband and I have been using Almeda Travel for 11 years. He is always thorough and willing to make adjustments as needed. We have enjoyed the many cruises we have taken and we will continue to do so.

Another fabulous trip!
Rey has booked several domestic and international trips for me over the years. Each time the experience was fantastic. Rey is not only a knowledgeable and experienced travel agent, he is patient with groups and always provides stellar customer service. The resorts are always fabulous and his recommendations on what to do when we arrive at our destinations make my vacations more enjoyable. I’ve counted on Rey to book fabulous vacations for over 10 years and he always delivers the best. I’ve always enjoyed the individual attention and care Rey provides his clients. He understands the apprehension that comes along with trying new places and is thorough and accommodating as a result. He’s also great at making suggestions on future vacations and I’ve never been disappointed when I follow his suggestions. Rey will remain my travel confidante for many years to come. He’s the best, hands down!

Fortieth birthday trip
My experience working with Rey has been great. He is very knowledgeable about his profession. My cousin and I wanted to plan a big trip for my fortieth birthday. Rey set up a trip to Dominican Republic which included an all inclusive five star hotel (Iberostar) with round trip transportation. Oh, how I wish I could show you pictures of the hotel, breathtaking. Before we could start popping bubbles we missed our flight. We called Rey and he quickly took care of the situation by putting us on another flight the next morning. To my delight, the hotel and transportation were in place as if nothing ever happened. I had a great time and would do it all over again missed flight and all because I know Rey will fix it:)
