We’ve worked with Dawnn from Shadyside Travel twice now, once for our honeymoon to Italy and recently for a getaway to Costa Rica. I barely have to describe to her what we’re looking for and she understands perfectly and sets up the perfect trip. Transportation to and from the airports is always smooth, the services and activities she sets us up with are amazing, and it matches exactly the type of trip we have in mind. I will definitely be working with Dawnn again for all our future travel needs.

Kim helped us book our honeymoon to Positano on the Amalfi coast of Italy back in September 2019 and it was incredible. The whole process was seamless and she made sure we had transportation from the tiny airport in Naples to our hotel along the cliffs of the coast (not easy to get to!) She not only recommended a lovely hotel (Le Agavi) for us to stay in, but also helped us book a tour of Pompeii as well. She was super receptive to our goals of the trip (mainly just to relax and explore the town) and didn’t try to push anything on us that we didn’t want. Will absolutely plan more trips to Europe through them once travel is safe again!

Our travel agent was Dawn and she was absolutely amazing.  Dawn took our timeline and budget, and within a few hours she had planned us an Italian vacation itinerary that was more than we could have ever imagine. She booked all of our hotels (which were goregous, clean and easy to get too), trains and multiple tours while we were there.  I have already recommended Shadyside Travel to colleagues and friends.

Dawnn, I can’t begin to thank you enough for planning this trip for us. It was FANTASTIC!!!! Everything went as planned. The Capodimonte was excellent & the tours were perfect. The day at the farm was hilarious. Really enjoyed the family & being in their home. We made gnocchi and tasted delicious wine cheese & lemonciello. I highly recommend it! Just wish it was longer. Thanks again!

Dawnn, just returned from our trip to Rome and London and owe you a huge thank you. You helped us with the Rome portion of our trip. We loved our hotel & location, the Hotel River Palace was perfect. The hotel staff & accommodations couldn’t have been better. The City Wonders tours were outstanding. It made our tours so much more meaningful to have the personal touch. Your thoughtfulness & experience made all the difference for a successful & meaningful vacation.
