Connie was great to work with!! A group from work is going. Our trip is the end of Jan and we are completely ready to go!! She made it an easy process, even working with so many individuals. We are taking a cruise, booked flight , transfers, and excursion. So easy with Heartland Travel! Have used them in the past for a family Disney cruise.....same experience.
