Spirited Navigators planned an amazing trip to the Caribbean for my birthday this year. There was so much attention to detail and the itinerary was amazing. Highly recommend them for your travel needs!
Ana T.
Spirited Navigators wonderfully planned my 8 day Caribbean Cruise on Carnival! This was my first cruise and first time traveling internationally, so I was a bit anxious. But their detailed planning, communication and organization all made me feel comfortable so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Highly recommend them for any trips, big or small!
Tasneem Rahim
I had a wonderful experience working with Spirited Navigators to plan a cruise for my friends 40th birthday party. They are very organized, responsive, and provide detailed itineraries that take into consideration the needs of each individual traveler. I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in a an excellent personalized travel experience.
Rosa Guerrero
Another hassle free and problem free trip thanks to SN. The top reason we will always go back to SN for all our vacation and family trip planning. After deciding to go on an excursion midway through our cruise. We reached out to SN who was able to book us the most magical stingray excursion in the sandbars off the Cayman Islands literally while we were having dinner in the middle of the ocean. Thanks for always being available.
Sean McIntosh
Had a wonderful time on our trip to Italy. Spirited Navigators was very helpful and thorough and planned out our whole trip, was easy to navigate with the itinerary provided. Will definitely use them again in the future.
Michael Thomas
I had the privilege of being a part of a girls trip to Barcelona curated by Spirited Navigators. First and foremost, the itinerary they curated for us was nothing short of perfection. They took the time to understand our interests and preferences, and every day of our trip was filled with exciting and tailored activities. Whether it was exploring the historic streets of the Gothic Quarter (Picasso Treasure Hunt), indulging in mouthwatering tapas (Wine and Tapas tour), or creating a personalized souvenir (Espadrille Workshop), every moment was a delight. Being my family’s usual trip planner, I know the amount of time it takes to plan out each detail. I was blown away by SN’s detailed itinerary, maps with multiple transport options, and extensive list of optional tours/sights/eateries for the periods of free time. Not only did they manage the planning and logistics for 16 people but seamlessly handled the multiple arrivals and departures. SN found restaurants that not only accommodated our large group but also had many options for any dietary restrictions/allergies. That is no easy task in a city with smaller dining establishments. Above all, what set SN apart was their exceptional customer service. They were readily available to answer any questions and address any concerns, making us feel like VIPs from start to finish. Our girls' trip to Barcelona exceeded all our expectations, thanks to the meticulous planning and personal touch of Spirited Navigators. If you're looking for a travel agency that will turn your dream vacation into a reality, look no further. Thank you for the memories of a lifetime!
Kajal Solanki
Spirited Navigators were awesome to work with. They were very knowledgeable about Paris and gave great tips to help get the most out of my trip. The itinerary they put together for me was detailed and extremely helpful. Saadia and Kapil both responded to my questions in a timely manner and were very helpful throughout the process. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Definitely 5 stars!
Eric Spitzer
One can easily plan an underwhelming Swiss vacay if you don’t know all the hidden gems Sadia and Kapil are very knowledgeable about Switzerland They curated our vacation according to our desire to go beyond the usual tourist attractions Switzerland is a beautiful country SpritedNavigators made the experience even better
Sunil Mandalapu
We recently came back from our Iceland group trip and we couldn’t have done it without Spirited Navigators . Kapil and Saadia were great with the entire process from planning to updates during the trip. We had 9 people and everything was perfectly executed. We appreciate all their hard work and availability at anytime we needed them . It was truly the trip of a lifetime. Thank you!
Rupal Patel
We recently returned from a group trip to Iceland. We couldn’t have done it without Spirited Navigators (SN). Kapil and Saadia had planned out every little detail for us, we literally just had to show up. We were given a very detailed itinerary prior to our trip that listed planned tours, reservations with confirmation numbers and arrival times to each activity, and even included google map links for each site we visited. That was probably one of my favorite parts of the itinerary. Throughout the planning process, SN was very transparent and patiently answered any questions/concerns we had. We were a group of nine people so when part of a group was participating in certain activities, SN provided alternate sight seeing options for others. I can’t thank Kapil and Saadia enough for all their support in making Iceland once in a lifetime experience for us!
Ami Patel
Working with Spirited Navigators far exceeded my expectations which were already high! They were very responsive, incredibly thorough, and provided an itinerary that included the expected basics, but also additional tips and tricks that would make the trip go smoother. We truly would not have had the incredible trip we had without their expertise throughout the entire process. From the planning part all the way through the actual trip. I will absolutely use them again and have sung their praises to everyone I know! Amazing experience!
Joey Sparks
Heartfelt Thank You Spirited Navigators for taking us on a spectacular journey through land of Fire 🔥 and Ice 🧊, Iceland. We couldn’t have planned this perfect vacation without you. All your recommendations were right on point and thankfully we followed your lead otherwise we would have missed some amazing experiences….and yes sometimes you had to insist strongly (yet always politely) so we don’t make a blunder. You are a travel essential for us 💕 can’t wait to start planning our next adventure with you.
Ami Desai
I can’t say enough good things about Spirited Navigators. I’m a planner and I love planning out all the details for my trips. I’m meticulous and spends hours doing so because I derive happiness from it leading up to my trip. However, I’ve gotten busier and busier with work, and most of my planning has gone out the door. Fast forward to my 40th birthday trip celebration when I was so busy and pretty much ready to just do a solo trip so I wouldn’t have to plan anything. One of my best friends insisted that I needed to make my big 40 celebration with my friends. I gave Spirited Navigators the basic details about what I wanted to do. I wanted to go to San Miguel de Allende or Huatulco but realized Huatulco would be more inconvenient travel wise. Well Spirited Navigators said do both and figured out all the logistics for me an my friends (all coming from different parts of the world). They listened to what was important to me in terms of my passion for food and what activities I wanted to do. They organized all the bookings, collected the money from my friends and paid all the vendors. We all received a beautiful and extremely detailed itinerary. It was the absolute best experience. They really are the white glove service of travel and can’t wait for them to plan my next big trip!
Tania T. Nunez Amador
Spirited Navigators was an absolute life saver for our recent trip to Spain. All emails/inquiries were answered within hours and they were on top of everything. Made the whole process seamless and we didn’t have to do anything. I would highly recommend and use for our next trip!
Parlin Desai
recently went on a large bachelorette trip that was organized by SN and WOW! Even the smallest details were thought of and planned out. The itinerary that was provided was thorough and even included maps with links to Google maps walking directions. The bonus of not having to overthink about everything was welcomed and appreciated by all 16 of us. I’m always in charge of planning our family vacations, but going forward I plan to take a step back and leverage SN’s expertise guide our way.
Jigna Patel
I went to Barcelona a few weeks ago for a bachelorette.. let me tell you, I'm still coming down from amazing time we had. Spirited Navigators had everything planned out for us. Dinners, car service, all the tours and the partying. We only had to show up. I would absolutely recommend this company for any and all of your travel needs. An amazing and fun experience thru them!
Reha Patel
Our 10 day trip in England was phenomenal and it was due to the incredible service provided by Spirited Navigators. The staff took care of every detail of our trip so that when our vacation began all we needed to do was enjoy it! Thank you so much Spirited Navigators....we will be back!
Kathy Canfield
I recently came back from a Barcelona group trip and we couldn’t have done it without Spirited Navigators (SN). If you’ve ever planned a trip, you know how tedious it can be be so imagine what planning a trip for 16 people would look like! Thankfully I didn’t have to find out since SN was on the job! Every detail was mapped out for us, we literally just had to show up. Whether it was dietary restrictions, dinner reservations, tours, interactive activities, transport, night life or even a picnic, everything was very carefully planned. Prior to the trip, we were given a very detailed itinerary which even included google map links for walking directions. That was probably one of my favorite parts. Throughout the planning process, SN was very transparent and provided us with options so we felt part of the process without having to do the work! I had an unfortunate incident happen when I was there and SN was able to walk me through exactly what I needed to do and where I needed to go. Without their guidance, I may have been stranded in Barcelona! If you’re on the fence about hiring SN, just do it and you won’t regret it!
Payal Patel
Spirited Navigators planned our recent trip to Italy and it was excellent. The plans and hotels were perfect. We felt a good balance between included in the planning and hassle free. The team was very flexible with any changes that needed to be made and even last minute ones. Will absolutely use for a future trip and highly recommend.
Arsha Venkat
My family is a repeat and lifetime clients of Sprites Navigators team. Saadia and Kapil are exceptional at what they do and we would never a plan a trip (spending thousands) without leveraging their expertise. This year specifically they helped us plan for Spring break in Portugal. In just 8 days we were able to cover 5 cities in depth with private tours. They had planned EVERYTHING for us…show bookings, hotels, transfers from airport/hotels, any other advance reservations we wanted including restaurants. We just had to show up!!! Not just that…they even provided real time support via WhatsApp while we were on the trip. It was my son’s first trip to Europe and team SN made it very special and enjoyable. SN is part of our travel essentials now. They are also planning our summer Iceland tour with 9 people. We can’t wait for that!
Ami Desai
Excellently organized trip. Our family used spirited navigators for our trip to Turkey. Always responded to any concerns or questions no matter what the time Provided expert tour guides and very comfortable vehicles thru out our trip. Highly recommend spirited navigators.
Anupama Sunkavalli
Our first trip to Tahiti truly could not have been planned any better thanks to Spirited Navigators . They took care in the planning process to form an itinerary that was custom to me and my husband’s requests and beyond.They took the time to formulate an itinerary which included our tickets for the flight confirmation, a lot of accommodations, transportation, day by day itinerary,( it couldn’t be more easy then that ), a list of restaurants in and out or hotel, logistics, tour and activities confirmation ( including tickets) and of course their extra that I definitely LOVE IT the fun facts!. I just want to say that Spirited Navigators were awesome throughout the entire process and trip. Thank you so much guys. We highly recommend SpiritedNavigators travel agency! They always go beyond your expectations! We will ALWAYS use them for any of my future trips.
Fabiola
Spirited Navigators went above and beyond their contractual obligations in making our multiple trips most memorable.
Ramana Koganti
3 months ago Spirited Navigators organized a trip for our group of fifty to Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks. They meticulously worked on a itinerary that kept us nimble and ensured we were productive everyday. They were able to pivot quickly to a new hotel when the flood situation arose at Yellowstone. We were able to cover almost everything originally planned. The bus organized by them was luxurious and driver was very nice. We couldn’t have organized such a complex trip ourselves. All in all everyone enjoyed the trip and had a fabulous time.
Sreedevi Mandalapu
Spirited Navigators did a great job and helped create a wonderful travel experience. All the arrangements were outstanding (flights, accommodations, ground transportation and activities) we could not have asked for a better managed itinerary.
Deepa
As a seasoned traveler, I never thought to use a Travel Planner. In the midst of Covid, we decided to ask for help to book a much needed trip. All our quirky and very specific asks were considered in planning our trip by Spirited Navigators. We have a little one with health issues in the midst of Covid so we were naturally worried. Every last detail was handled for our trip including all our daily excursions. There wasn’t any part of our trip left to surprise. The itinerary was so detailed and organized which helped ease all our worries going into the trip. As we were making it through our trip, I realized that I didn’t have to really do anything as the designated family planner and decision maker for trips and itineraries. It was completely stress free and so much more enjoyable. I have recommended Spirited Navigators to friends who are seasoned travelers also who came back and told me they have never experienced trips so well planned and detailed. All our trips are now planned by Spirited Navigators.
Sean M.
Spirited Navigators were super reliable, has so so many options for food, sights, ands things to do during their planning of my trips. I've used them multiple times now and don't even think about going on any trips without using them. So worth it, super knowledgeable and insightful. ❤❤❤❤
Ann Nguyen
I found Spirited Navigators by accident but am SO HAPPY I did. The service they provide for the the price is unmatched. They could charge 2-3x easily. They made booking and planning a breeze. The detailed itinerary I received before my trip was amazing. Plans, confirmation numbers, reservations, important numbers and information, recommendations, etc. The itinerary was worth their fee alone. Most importantly, they are incredibly knowledgeable at what they do and friendly. They truly want their clients to have the best experiences. I never knew I needed a travel planner but now I can’t imagine not using SN. Where to next?
Scott Eisen
We have used Spirited Navigators about three times and they have never disappointed us. They are very diligent and always a step ahead in anticipating clients needs. Our interests and concerns were well attended which made our vacations very memorable. A big thanks to Saadia and Kapil.
loisaida
I really enjoyed working with the team at Spirited Navigators to plan my recent trip to Morocco (June/July 2022). They made many wonderful recommendations and made the process seamless. They also stayed connected with us throughout the trip to ensure that we had all the information we needed. I highly recommend working with them and I have already recommended them to family and friends.
Marsha
This company has definitely made a repeat customer! They planned an excellent 40th birthday trip to Hawaii for me, one that I won’t soon forget. They way they had organized made logistical sense, and they took time to make sure we rested on our trip too. Don’t know how they did it, but the itinerary that made for us had both local tips and must-see experiences as well. It was their mix of local knowledge and organization that really struck me. I had zero time to plan my vacation due to a stressful work situation, and Spirited Navigators swooped in and just about saved my trip. I really had the best time being able to rest but also stay active enough to make the travel worth while. I really can’t thank them enough. If you’re looking for an affordable, thorough, and organized company to help you plan your next trip, look no further!

SN recommended Lapland for our 25 Anniv celebration. It was a wonderful destination, the hotels recommended were in top locations and boutique style, very tasteful, and activities planned were a lot of fun and unique. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip
Sreedevi Mandalapu
Everything went really well, Saadia was responsive and helpful It was a well organized trip The hotels were nice Thank you for everything
Vinuta Nirmal
Saadia and Kapil recently organized the local tours for our Greece trip to Mykonos, Santorini and Athens. Their travel knowledge and experience allowed them to pick the best of the best. The food tour in Athens and the sailing tour in Santorini were out of the world experiences. They were very prompt in making the reservations and accessible anytime of the day for questions. We were able to enjoy the trip and stay relaxed without worrying about making tour reservations. I will definitely use their services for our next trip.
Sreedevi Mandalapu
Great experience working with Spirited Navigator for our extended family summer trip to Switzerland. They are very professional. Provide all the information you would need for your trip. They think of everything. They are proactive in thinking of what you would need and making arrangements accordingly. They are available any time of the day even when you are on the trip. We had an incident on our trip where the Tour bus company didn't give us the bus that we had requested for one of the legs of he trip. We contacted Kapil and Saadia, and midway on our journey, we were given the bus we had requested. Awesome service and totally worth it if you are looking for worry free vacation planning. I would recommend them any day to my family, friends and co-workers.
Sonia
Thank you for helping us with our trip to Italy. One of the best things about Spirited Navigators was that they were always available to answer any questions we had prior to leaving and in Italy as well. They created a very detailed itinerary keeping in mind our needs and also gave us a list of local activities and restaurants. At the same time they were very patient and accommodating when we made changes to itinerary. I would definitely use them to plan and organize my future trips
Anitha A
It was a pleasure working with Spirited Navigators team in planning our Switzerland vacation. They went above and beyond and created a very detailed itinerary for our vacation. We loved all their recommendations for restaurants, places to visit and things to do in different parts of the country. Every little detail was spot on including transportation options, train schedules, hotel suggestions. We were very thrilled with the amount of knowledge they have of Switzerland, I doubt even a local resident would have been able to able to give us that much detail about this country.

Thank you Spirited Navigators for planning our Arizona trip to perfection. They provided us with extremely detailed information for an active vacation with kids at a reasonable pace (tall order). The itinerary included information such as must visit cities within Arizona, mileages/timing it would take for us to travel from one city to another, airport tips, car rental tips, restaurant recommendations and much more. In addition, list of activities with websites, phone numbers and SN tips (my favorite) to book ahead was priceless. There is no way we would be able to get this level of information by searching online. They are the experts and they know what they are doing. I will definitely rely on them for my future travels, especially for Europe.

Spirited Navigators have helped me plan many vacations! When I have a place in mind, I always ask for their input on where to stay, what to eat, and major sights to visit. When I know I need a vacation, but can't decide where, Spirited Navigators are full of destination ideas. Always willing to share their own experience in a particular city or country, or help you with research if they haven't been there themselves. Spirited Navigators have also given me great ideas on how to have a enjoyable budget friendly trip. They are always the first I consult with when planning a trip.

Spirited Navigators are ALWAYS my go to for questions on anything travel related - from what should I bring, how should I pack my stuff - to where should I eat and what are the must sees at any destination. You can truly feel the love that they have for ANYTHING travel related (even if it is what shoes you should wear). It makes picking a vacation spot much more comfortable, especially for a homebody like me. Any question isn't too big or to small for them, they are amazing on all their advice and recommendations. I would never go anywhere without talking it over with Spirited Navigators first.

I am soo glad to have met Spirited Navigators since they are definitely my number one go to people when it comes to travel. A while back I was planning a trip to the Caribbeans and I just wasn't sure where to start, so I decided to ask Spirited Navigators and I am glad I did. Not only were they able to provide me with a good deal, they also advised me on what to bring and what to expect at some of these locations. To me its always best to ask someone who has been there and who has done it, truly Spirited Navigators have the knowledge and experience of traveling. If you want a great deal! Ask Spirited Navigators!

I love to travel and thoroughly enjoy researching and planning before all my trips. No detail is too small for me. Even so, since 2009, there is not a single trip that I have planned without asking Spirited Navigators for advice or help in finding the best deals on flights or top must see places. Not only are they passionate about traveling themselves, they are equally enthusiastic about encouraging others to find their inner wanderlust. Spirited Navigators is extremely knowledgeable and anything that they are not 100% sure about - they go out of their way to research, reads lots of reviews, or seeks advice from other travelers in their network so that you don't have to. Spirited Navigators makes planning any trip easy and pleasurable. They are my top choice every time!

I became a wanderlust after my UCLA study abroad program and since has traveled to over 40 countries, 6 continents. With that said, there's no one else that I would thoroughly enjoy sharing every single one of those places with than Spirited Navigators. Their desire and passion to explore the world goes hand in hand with their skill to create amazing itineraries that will leave you with priceless memories. Their recommendations are on point from what to pack, what to see, and especially where to eat! There is no travel obstacle they can't overcome and that's why Spirited Navigators is ALWAYS my go to travel guide!

Spirited Navigators, thank you so much for helping me with my trip to Costa Rica!!!!!! Traveling to a different country requires so much research and so much time. You made it very easy for me though. Planning my wedding was consuming so much of my time. Your research and the detailed information and tips that you gave me for my trip were so helpful. You are very thorough and fast at responding. You also help me save a lot of money!!!! I really appreciate all your help. Thank you for providing me with all the transportation options available within the country. I was so scared to book that because I didn't know if the companies I had been looking out were legitimate. Your list of options was so detailed with company names, descriptions, phone numbers and prices. I took your advice for some of the activities you suggested and I had a blast. Thank you so much again! I will be contacting you again for my next trip. ?

To know Spirited Navigators is to truly understand one's love and passion for travel. They are easily the best people to go to with any travel related questions/ideas/opinions. I cannot remember the number of times I've gone to Spirited Navigators for suggestions and tips regarding anything to do with travel, whether it's logistical or even a simple "what kind of clothes to take" question. They are knowledgable, helpful and always willing to make things a little simpler for people like me who wish we could travel more. Thank you Spirited Navigators, I'm always living vicariously through you!

Spirited Navigators is the go-to place when deciding what to do when traveling abroad. I had done a study-abroad program with my school this past month in England, and was going to travel around Italy for 8 days afterwards. Since this was my first time traveling without my family, I was very nervous and stressed on planning and embarking on this journey. I came to Spirited Navigators for advice on what to do, and I received so much more than that. They gave me a full detailed itinerary that I took EVERYWHERE with me. With their help, as a first-time traveler, I was able to see 6 cities in 8 days without hesitation. From where to eat, what to see and what to do... they told me everything in detail up to the bus number and what routes to take. They will do all the research for you to make sure you are at ease on your vacation! I would definitely recommend planning your next trip with Spirited Navigators. 10/10!!!

Spirited Navigators have been my go-to for all travel related matters. I enjoy traveling but don't like planning. Spirited Navigators have helped me with travel itineraries from beginning to end. They ask the right questions and always have fun suggestions and ideas. This past summer my husband and I only had 2-3 days in Paris. Spirited Navigators planned everything out for us in the most efficient way possible, including places to eat, how to get from place to place, free tours, even good picture spots. I carried around their itinerary the entire time and referred to it constantly. They have a true passion for traveling and is my only source for everything travel.

I wanted to surprise my wife with a trip to Italy for her birthday! Feeling completely overwhelmed and lost that I wouldn't get the best prices on flights and hotels I reached out to Spirited Navigators. They monitored flight prices and the hotel rates and got us some amazing deals! They put together a complete itinerary for our trip from soup to nuts! It made the experience that much more amazing! Needless to say we just returned from our trip to Rome. It was one of the best vacations we have ever been on! Spirited Navigators made it affordable and manageable for us to go on a bucket list vacation and we cannot thank them enough!

When I think of travel, I think of Spirited Navigators! Over the years, they have inspired me to seize any travel opportunities that come my way. I recently traveled to Ireland and Iceland and Spirited Navigators created a detailed and comprehensive itinerary for our 10-day trip, outlining not only the classic to-do's, but also the hidden gems as well. Their recommendations were so valuable and made me feel at ease, especially since I was traveling without my family for the first time. I continue to rely on Spirited Navigators' insight for even the smallest trips and in doing so, I feel 100% confident that I'm making the most out of my time. Their vast knowledge of travel, domestic and international, has no limits and I could not recommend Spirited Navigators enough!

When we were planning a family vacation to Cancun , I knew I had to contact Spirited Navigators to help me sort through the numerous options. Looking online on your own is so time consuming and so many hotels have sponsored posts and reviews it's impossible to know what is a good hotel option. They gave me a great list of options and even gave me a separate list in case the first ones were sold out. They gave me insider tips on booking my trip and very quick to respond. I wasn't exactly sure on the budget so it was great that they told me a realistic price to pay even during spring break (high season). I will definitely contact them again the next time I travel. Thank you Spirited Navigators!!
