"My now wife and I reached out to 6 Degrees for some consultation to help plan our honeymoon at the recommendation of a friend. At the time, we were a bit hesitant about using a travel agent, but Jamie and her team were so incredibly knowledgeable and helpful from just the first phone call that we immediately knew we wanted to partner with them. Jamie did a wonderful job of listening to our ideas and visions for our honeymoon all while keeping our budget top of mind. Her willingness to put together multiple proposals and tweak the itinerary made the process easy and fun.
The trip that she planned for us to South Africa is indescribable as it completely exceeded our expectations in so many ways. From the amazing culinary experiences in Cape Town, to the picture-perfect lodging in Franschhoek wine country, to the shockingly close interactions we had with the animals in Thornybush Game Reserve. Truly this trip was beyond extraordinary and we are glad that we were able to make the connection with Jamie and 6 Degrees. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime!”

“Our trip to Tokyo was flawless across the board, from transportation to hotels to in-country experiences. We especially enjoyed getting to know Bill - we had so much fun with him! Thanks to Brianna and the 6 Degrees team for everything. ”

“At the recommendation of a friend, we were put in contact with Jamie at 6 Degrees to plan our honeymoon to Africa. It was our first time to Africa and we had a general idea of where we wanted to go, but zero details were worked out. We filled out an informational sheet with preferences and a budget, and a few days later, we were presented with an itinerary that was exactly what we wanted. Any questions or changes we had for Jamie were answered quickly and in detail, we always felt like we were a priority. The actual trip itself was unforgettable. The Safari camps we visited and the experiences were amazing, including the food. The sequencing and logistics of the trip were perfect as well. There were zero hiccups on a 2-week honeymoon that included three countries and many aircraft and vehicle transfers. Any time we traveled within Africa, representatives with signs met us on time and took us to our next destination seamlessly. I would absolutely recommend using 6 Degrees, especially if you are planning to move around in a foreign country, they made that part so easy! We cannot wait to work with 6 Degrees in the future.”

"Anna helped us plan our summer honeymoon. We told her we wanted a good mix of relaxation, adventure, and culture. We traveled to three destinations in the same country. She gave us EXACTLY what we wanted...each tour we took was incredible and the people were amazing. Each person she connected us with was professional and knowledgeable and warm. Every hotel was our favorite, each better than the last... we struggled leaving each one during the day because they were so incredible. She set us up for a few restaurant reservations which were all very local and not touristy with delicious food. Anna was very transparent and open, we felt like we could really tell her what we wanted and what we wanted/didn't want to spend and she followed through. Will be using Anna again for trips small to large!"

"We won’t travel again without 6 Degrees! Anna and the team helped us from the start, even before we knew where we wanted to go. After exploring a few options with Anna, we decided on Cartagena, Columbia. The trip was planned extensively; everything from transportation, to stay, to food, to fun activities, was organized and presented to us in a detailed book. Our hotels were beautiful and accommodating; our tour guide set up by 6 Degrees provided us insight into the Columbian culture and recommendations for evening venues; the dinner reservations made for a guaranteed easy and pleasant food experience; and the activities were unforgettable, including a delicious coffee and rum tasting, an exciting salsa lesson, and two amazing island trips off the coast. Moreover, Anna stayed in touch all along the way to check in and ensure everything was going smoothly. The trip was an absolute blast and we are so thankful for all of 6 Degrees efforts in planning it!"

"We had limited time and resources with which to plan a vacation to Bali, so we reached out to 6 Degrees to help plan our trip. 6 Degrees made things extremely easy – after getting a feel for what type of vacation we wanted, they put together a comprehensive itinerary that checked off every box. We had a fantastic trip that was a perfect the combination of relaxation and cultural immersion. We stayed in three different cities that each showed us a different aspect of Bali, and the hotel accommodations surpassed all expectations. 6 Degrees is first rate, and I will be recommending them to friends and family in the future."

"This was our second trip that we planned through Anna and Travel 6 Degrees. They did such an incredible job on the first trip, so there was absolutely no hesitation when we decided to have them plan our next trip to Italy. Once again, Anna completely went above and beyond what we had anticipated. She was so helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. When we had to make last minute changes due to weather or other factors, she was so responsive and had an alternative option ready to be booked within minutes. We celebrated New Years Eve in Rome at the most amazing hotel in the center of everything - the best shopping and just a couple of blocks away from the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum, Vatican City, etc. and not to mention the hotel had a rooftop that overlooked the entire city of Rome and allowed us to have front row seats to all of the fireworks on NYE. We would never have found such a perfect hotel without Anna's help. She took our preferences from our last trip into account when booking our various hotels (which were each unique in their own way and also breathtakingly beautiful) and experiences in Italy, so the entire trip was completely tailored to our needs and what we would enjoy (without having to tell her). We felt so safe and were treated so well in Rome, Florence and Tuscany. I can't imagine ever planning a trip without the guidance, support and help of Anna and the Travel 6 Degrees team!"

"Kate, Jamie and the 6 Degrees team went above and beyond to pull together multiple itineraries, locations, and VIP activity options in a matter of 48 hours for a last minute ultra-luxe trip. They were extremely thorough, detailed, and professional — all the while being transparent in terms of costs, which can be so rare with travel agencies. The combination of their speed and connections with incredible properties proved to be invaluable. I highly recommend them for anyone needing expert assistance to plan an unforgettable trip."

"6 Degrees was an amazing resource when planning our trip to Thailand. We received their information from a friend of a friend, and never knew how great it would be to work with a travel agency who took care of all the details. From booking flights and hotels to recommending activities in multiple different cities, they were a great resource for planning an unforgettable trip. They even use a mobile app that aggregates all your information - from reservations and departure times, to confirmations for hotels and excursions -- everything is in one place! Thank you 6 Degrees!"

"In addition to it being our honeymoon, it was also Becky's first time visiting Europe. Given the high stakes, I was intent on making this a special trip after I got the okay to do the planning. I wanted to find a professional service who could advise and also help with taking care of the details. Between Jamie and her team at 6 Degrees, I can truly say they were exactly what I was hoping for. They quickly understood our interests and were the perfect partner. I would have never found the activities we went on or the exact kind of hotel we like, in both style and location, in all three cities. They made it fun and hours (if not days!) of time was saved. Lastly, while on the trip, we had the peace of mind knowing 6 Degrees could take care of any issues if they came up (of course, none did).
For anyone who wants to play an active role in putting their vacation together, I can 100% confirm they are a dream group to work with."

"We cannot thank Kate and the 6 Degrees team enough for booking us on the honeymoon of our dreams. My wife and I wanted to visit South Africa, but we had no idea where to start. It was so overwhelming trying to figure out which parks to visit, where to stay, transfers between cities and lodges, and activities to do in our spare time. With our work schedules and wedding planning, we never would have figured it out.
We are so thankful that we worked with 6 Degrees. Kate took care of every detail and even juggled the points on our multiple credit cards to book our flights. My wife and I are vegetarians, so Kate ensured that all dinner reservations and meals (even on safari), catered to us. Because of our diet, we were also hesitant to do a walking food tour in Cape Town, but again Kate made sure it was tailored specifically to us, and it turned out to be one of our favorite activities.
All of our guides and drivers were extremely friendly, professional, helpful, and punctual. And we can't say enough good things about the safari - it was the best experience of our lives. On our previous vacations we would usually spend a few hours every day trying to figure out what to do, how to get there, where to eat, etc. We had never used a travel consultant before, and now I don't know if I can travel without one! Despite visiting 5 cities in 13 days, this was the most relaxing trip I've ever been on. There was nothing to think about, nothing to plan, and no decisions to be made. And everything went perfectly.
We hoped that our honeymoon would be memorable, but this far exceeded all expectations. South Africa is a trip that we will never forget... THANK YOU 6 Degrees!"

"We are so grateful to have worked with Juliana & the Travel 6 Degrees team. With our incredibly busy schedules, my wife & I had very little time to plan our dream vacation to Spain and Portugal; this would be our only time off together and we wanted it to be very special. Juliana paid close attention to every small detail and created the experience of a lifetime! We filled out the Travel Bio thinking our preferences were too much to pack into one trip; but Juliana found a way to give us some of everything: culture, history, adventure, relaxation, amazing food, and fascinating people. We are so incredibly grateful to the 6 Degrees team for making it come together; our hotel stays buoyed the entire experience in more luxurious comfort than we ever thought possible! I keep scrolling through our trip photos when I need a pick-me-up during the long work days, and it never fails! Gracias, obrigado, THANK YOU!"

"We had the most incredible experience in South Africa all thanks to Anna and the Travel 6 Degrees team. It was my first time traveling outside of the U.S. (other than Mexico) and somewhere so far from home, so I was a little nervous and anxious about everything from the 14 hour flight to safely transferring to-and-from hotels/locations. Thankfully, Anna had everything perfectly planned out to where Haley and I did not have to worry about a single thing. We landed in Johannesburg and were greeted immediately after exiting the jet-bridge by a man with a sign that read my last name on it. He grabbed our luggage and escorted us through customs, baggage claim and to our next gate where we would then fly to Cape Town. Our journey began in Hermanus where we relaxed after the long flight. After the first few amazing days in Hermanus, we were whisked off to Cape Town via helicopter (that Anna had suggested and set up for us) where we indulged in everything from delicious meals, silk pajamas, fine wine and a luxury VIP suite at the Silo Hotel. The last stop was Safari in Kruger National Park, which was by far the most life-changing experience I have ever had! Haley and I were blown away by the hospitality and kindness that everyone in South Africa demonstrated throughout the entire trip. Every detail of our South African adventure was so thoughtfully planned and put together - it was absolutely more than what Haley and I could have ever imagined and we will forever be thankful for Anna and Travel 6 Degrees for facilitating truly such a magical vacation."

"We've worked with Kate & the 6 Degrees team on a couple of our trips. They're attentive and listen about what you're looking to get out of your travels which is something I find so important when working with an agent. Most recently, Kate & team booked our honeymoon to South Africa. To say it was incredible would be an understatement and much of that is due to the very thoughtful planning by 6 Degrees. Traveling to South Africa is definitely a complex trip to plan. With there being so many notable sites to see, we ended up travelling to four different cities, took six guided tours and then safari'ed for the last four days of the trip. It all went off without a hitch. Prior to using 6 Degrees, we wasted so much time on our vacations calling taxi's and trying to plan out our days. Not this trip. Each hotel was equipped with our itinerary in order to manage all of the logistics that Kate & team outlined for that leg of our adventure. Each hotel selected was more beautiful than the next and the day trips were a blast. Thank you to 6 Degrees for making our honeymoon memories ones that we will be sharing with EVERYONE for a very long time!"

"Thailand is a country that many people only dream about. My wife and I decided to honeymoon in South East Asia but had no idea where to begin, where to stay or quite frankly, how to get there. We had lots of accumulated credit card points that we wanted to allocate to the trip but weren't sure how. Kate took excellent care of us from the get go. We flew roundtrip business class on one of the best airlines, which made the trip so comfortable as we aren't huge fans of long plane rides. When we arrived, the General Manager upgraded us to the hotel's best villa and even coordinated a special surprise welcome dinner on the beach - it was magical! We decided to add a few activities as we went, and 6 Degrees' partners accommodated accordingly and were so flexible, it made everything so easy. We can't wait for 6 Degrees to plan our next adventure. Thanks for the best honeymoon ever!"

"Kate, Jamie, and team helped us plan an absolutely unforgettable trip to Africa for our 10th anniversary. We were extremely impressed with how quickly they were able to design a 16 day trip that took us all over South Africa and Zambia. Their recommendations on where to stay and what to do were spot on. They were very receptive to learning what our interests were and and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable during the entire planning process. We were so happy with the results we came back to 6 Degrees again to help us plan another vacation! They share the same passion in travel we do. We appreciate having an experienced partner to help make travel easier and more enjoyable."
- Bryan & Kim; South Africa & Zambia
"My girlfriend and I were in need of a much needed weekend getaway. We didn't want to travel too far so we decided to do a staycation in Big Sur, just a few hours from our home in California. Kate and team enhance even the simplest of trips with spa credits, complimentary breakfast and overall top notch service as the staff knew our names from the moment we arrived. I highly recommend reaching out to 6 Degrees for even the shortest of getaways, they add the special touches that really make the trip."
- Beth & John; Big Sur
"We are so glad that we chose 6 Degrees as our travel agent for our honeymoon- every single place, activity, hotel and travel guide they recommended & planned was perfect. They did a great job understanding what we liked and their knowledge and professionalism was unparalleled. They went above and beyond to make sure that every single detail was taken care of and we never had to think about any logistics or transportation, we could truly relax and enjoy each place. One of the places they recommended, Hermanus, wasn't even on our radar and was by far our favorite place; when we share it with people, they all ask how we knew about this place, how we found it, and how incredible the hotel looked. Kate & her team will make sure that you have a memorable, luxurious, and incredible trip, no matter what it's for!"
- Dan & Christina; South Africa
"Working with 6 Degrees opened our eyes to an entirely new level of travel. Not only were we introduced to places and experiences we didn't know existed, but the detailed touches along the way and seamless process made for a memory of a lifetime. We truly didn't have to lift a finger. From red to white wine, to food allergies, to the best seating arrangements on our flights, to the recommended room at each hotel, every detail was 100% catered to us and our liking. We became quite close with the team after working with them on our anniversary trip and they are truly a remarkable group. Thank you 6 Degrees for creating a memory we will never forget!"
- Anna & Alex; Chile
"Kate and team have been planning my family's travels for the past four years. They know our likes, dislikes and style like the back of their hand, which makes working with them a walk in the park. We tend to arrange travel plans very last minute and every single time they are able to accommodate top level service and have everything locked in place within 48 hours. Its quite the set up! Thanks 6 Degrees for the continued dedication you have to our family, we don't know what we would do without you!"

"My husband and I were attempting to plan a trip to New Zealand, yet we had no clue where to begin. After chatting with a few friends, they recommended 6 Degrees. Neither of us had worked with a travel agency before and went in a bit blind to the entire process. Jamie and her team took the reins from start to finish and helped with every detail along the way we didn't think (or know) to include. We loved our hotels, guides and suggested hidden gems that they recommended. The trip was remarkable from start to finish thanks to 6 Degrees."
- Katie & Sean; New Zealand
"6 Degrees helped plan our honeymoon last October to Tahiti and it was amazing. Kate and team were great to work with and always responded promptly. We visited the island of Moorea in Tahiti and stayed at the Hilton property in an overwater bungalow. It was truly a perfect vacation and honeymoon that surpassed all of our expectations. If you're planning a vacation, 6 Degrees are the people to work with."
- Brad & Amanda; French Polynesia
"The entire experience absolutely exceeded our expectations. Our jaws dropped with every room we walked into, every activity we participated in and every meal we ate. When we started out in Cape Town, we didn't think it could get any better. And then we walked into Birkenhead and we were absolutely blown away - we want to move there - it was INCREDIBLE! And then safari... what could be better than Simambili and Thornybush? The drives were amazing, our guides were awesome, the accommodations and food were top notch. Thank you so much for all of your hard work in planning our amazing honeymoon, we know it's not easy to plan trips and ours went off without a hitch! Working with you made traveling so easy AND our honeymoon was like 100x better than it would have been if we had planned it, thank you thank you thank you!"
- Ashley & Andy; South Africa
"6 Degrees planned our family trip for our life long dream to see South Africa. It was fabulous! Every single detail was paid the utmost attention. The accommodations in which we were booked far exceeded our expectations and the tours that were arranged were fun, professional and informative. Kruger National Park is overwhelming with lodge choices and only through experiencing the lodge chosen by 6 Degrees did we realize how lucky we were to have them book our experience. There are many lodges out there with limited animal viewing privileges and tight boundary guidelines. In our lodge were free to explore the bush with experienced trackers and saw all of the Big Five in the three days we were there. Anna did an exceptional job tailoring our trip to meet our wants and needs, patiently as we were coordinating with four different people in different locations! We have fallen head over heels with Africa and are already planning on going back. It is a certainty that we will use 6 Degrees for all our International Travel as well as our domestic travel needs. Five plus stars!!!"

"I was more than pleased with my experience working with Travel Designer, Anna Gilbert. Unsure of where to begin when choosing a honeymoon destination, my husband and I had no idea what a difference one phone call could make. After speaking with Anna, we were shocked at how quickly we received an emailed detailed list of what each destination and resort had to offer. After going through all of our options with Anna we were pleased to choose Half Moon in Montego Bay, Jamaica as our honeymoon destination.
Anna found the best deal when booking our flights and went above and beyond when it came to ensuring we had excellent transportation from the airport to the resort in addition to our accommodations at Half Moon. Shortly after arriving at Half Moon, the concierge informed us that Anna had hooked us up with an ocean view villa even though we had initially booked a garden view room. I cannot put into words what a difference this made for our trip. Our room was more than we could have ever dreamed. The beach was right at our feet and we were able to take full advantage of it. We were listening to the ocean as we went to bed each night and ate breakfasts on our private patio in front of the ocean. Did I mention we had champagne and a Jamaican rum cake waiting in our room upon arrival?
Half Moon had excellent food, service, and accommodations. The staff went out of their way to make our experience so wonderful. We even had an employee offer to clean our sunglasses while sipping piña coladas at the pool bar. Overall, I would highly recommend using 6 Degrees to plan your travels"
