Travel style

Learning how to travel when times were lean made all the difference when planning travel when times are plentiful. Wonderful experiences can and should be had, no matter where you're at in life. Travel can be deeply spiritual or a totally frivolous jaunt – its for you and the people along for the ride. I love planning trips and knowing the people taking them have enjoyed what was laid out in front of them but also that they had the freedom to explore and go with the flow too. I look forward to helping people get what they want and more!

Nicole's reviews

It was a no brainer to trust Nicole in booking my vacation, since she is a previous colleague of mine. She not only understands what I was looking for, but also was able to navigate me in the right way. With 7 countries in the list and the time period, she was able to not only provide the best offers and rate, but the overall experience as well.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Nicole from Fora to plan my birthday trip to Punta Cana, and I cannot sing her praises enough! From start to finish, Nicole made the entire process effortless and enjoyable. Communication with Nicole was an absolute breeze. She was incredibly responsive, always getting back to me promptly with answers to any questions or concerns I had. Whether it was via email, text message, or even in person, Nicole was always there to lend a helping hand or offer valuable advice. One thing that truly stood out to me was how thorough Nicole was in her planning. She took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for in my birthday trip, and then went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of. From booking the perfect accommodations to arranging exciting excursions, Nicole left no stone unturned. And let me tell you, everything was exactly as Nicole had described it – and even better! The accommodations were luxurious, the activities were thrilling, and the entire trip went off without a hitch. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect birthday getaway, all thanks to Nicole's impeccable planning. Without a doubt, I would not hesitate to use Nicole's services again in the future. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and unwavering dedication to her clients make her an absolute joy to work with. If you're looking for a seamless and unforgettable travel experience, look no further than Nicole from Fora. She truly is a gem in the world of travel planning.

Nicole provided thorough and knowledgeable information of what to expect from the hotel, the area, and even the restaurant types and ratings within walking distance and farther out. The wine tasting and pairing experience at Long Meadows is a unique experience for us also. Wines were European style and less acidic. Nicole’s recommendation of this outfit was intuitive and improved our tasting experience. She was excellent adviser!!

This was a last-minute booking due to a family emergency which Nicole handled swiftly and perfectly. I was surprised and delighted by how efficient and smooth the whole thing went. Could not possibly have had a better transaction and booking experience than I had here. Thanks! Highest recommendation!
