"Longtime fans of Antietam Travel. Julie Shanholtz went far and beyond the norm to save our trip to Anguilla. We had serious concerns about the islands rigorous testing requirements, quarantines and other obstacles. We were close to canceling when Julie picked up the phone, called the GM at our resort several times and made us feel a comfort level that only a true travel professional could. We have and will always work with Antietam. Thank you Julie!" -D., Julie Shanholtz

Great Trip and planning

Alexandra was very responsive and helpful in planning and organizing our all inclusive trip to Secrets Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. After we told her what type of trip we were looking for, she gave us a few options, and answered all our questions timely so we could make an informed decision.

Best Customer Service
Reviewed on: 11 Nov 2021
It was actually Julie Shanholtz that we worked with. We have used her for many cruises. Julie and the team at Antietam Travel ALWAYS has great customer service and makes you feel like family. We use them over and over and would never use a different travel agency.

I can’t say enough about how great Anita Staley was in helping us get our trip to Orlando planned and the getting the right park tickets ordered for our family. She made sure all our questions were answered and everything was confirmed so when we got there it was a wonderful experience. We would recommend her to anyone looking to travel

"Made our honeymoon dreams come true
I'm so glad we decided to work with Alexandra. With covid rates still high, we assumed we would have to book a smaller/closer honeymoon. But shortly after our 3rd attempt at a wedding, Greece borders opened up and knew we had to attempt to go. We were planning to leave in 2 short months and knew we didn't have enough time to research and book a trip like this on our own. We got a recommendation for a travel agent and got set up on a phone call with Alexandra a few days later and she assured us that we could make Greece happen! She kept our budget in mind and was honest when some of the things we wanted weren't going to fit within it. She was still was able to book us a romantic and beautiful honeymoon in the place we had always imagined. She answered all of my questions in a timely matter (no matter how many I kept asking) and always made sure that we were happy with the suggestions she was making. I could go on but overall we highly recommend using Alexandra and plan to do so again!"
Four of us—ages 68-72- went to beautiful st Lucia last week. We had a great time and we couldn’t have done it —literally- without the help of our travel agent Alexandra Bohn. She was patient and always available to answer any questions. There was a lot of paper work involved. All agreed it was well worth the effort. We had a very romantic boutique hotel (Calabash Cove) in which all the nice sized rooms overlooked the ocean and pool. The staff couldn’t of been nicer or more helpful. But the bigger bonus was the beautiful culture—the people were amazing —people who lived there. It was great being in another culture where the people were so welcoming and kind. Great fun trip!

I apologize for the delay in writing this note, but I seemed to come home from Italy and hit the road running like I'd never even had a vacation! Italy was wonderful and in large part it was because of you and your attention to detail in planning!! From beginning to end we had a fabulous time, saw awesome sights, and had fun every moment! I will say the extreme heat was not the best, but nothing a limoncello spritzer couldn't remedy. Thank you so much for really listening to us and finding just the right hotels, guides, drivers, and experiences that you knew we would enjoy. I wouldn't have changed a thing-the trip was that perfect! Thank you again for your hard work in getting everything together! You can be sure you always get my recommendation! I love traveling "with" you!!
NICE, PROFESSIONAL AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AGENTS
By Donna and George R.
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you and all of your staff for your wonderful support. Everyone is always so nice, professional and very knowledgeable in everywhere we travel. I have never had a travel agent contact us after our vacation to make sure everything went well, like all of you at Antietam. I'm so glad we have been using you for 13 years now.
Thanks Again, Donna and George R.
SECRETS MAROMA BEACH HONEYMOON
By Brian & Laura
Antietam [Travel Service, Inc.] was amazing to work with. All we knew is that we wanted an all inclusive resort in the Caribbean. They gave us lots of information to look through and met with us several times to help us narrow it down. They did not push any particular resort on us. They answered every question we had even if it meant they had to contact another agent with personal experience at a particular resort. We actually eventually went with one of their top recommendations which was Secrets Maroma Beach in Riviera Maya. We didn't even look at the Mexico resorts but we are really glad they told us not to rule Mexico out and told us this was one of their favorites. It is now one of ours. It was absolutely the perfect Honeymoon I was imagining thanks to Linda at Antietam Travel.
SECRETS ST. JAMES MONTEGO BAY HONEYMOON
My husband and I knew we wanted to travel to the Caribbean (but not Mexico) for an all-inclusive resort and we knew how much we wanted to spend [on our honeymoon].
However, we didn't have a specific destination in mind. Julie helped us figure out what would work with our budget and what we could get for our money. She provided
us with several options and went back and forth with us via email as we tried to make our decision. She booked the resort [Secrets St. James Montego Bay in Jamaica]
and airline tickets for us and it was a huge load off our minds not to deal with the details. Julie checked in with us right before the trip to make sure we had everything we needed and she even sent us a card to congratulate us on the wedding. The resort she booked for us was excellent.
I first came in contact with Julie a few years ago when she helped coordinate all the travel for my friend's destination wedding. Her professionalism and efficiency
impressed me and so when it was time to book my honeymoon I naturally reached out to her.
