What People Are Saying About Us!
Loretta at Clean Getaway travel made our trip to Key West effortless and full of fun from long before the trip happened to the day we left!
Before the trip, Loretta gave me practical advice, took all my needs into consideration and made bookings that completely aligned with what we wanted.
When I had ideas, she made suggestions that were even better than what I thought of... she really used her experience and listened beyond the words I was using to create the ideal holiday for us!
While we were there, she quickly and easily made arrangements for us, allowing me to ‘not think’ during the entire time, which made the stay fantastic. She provided details like restaurant suggestions, tips on which types of tours might suit our budget best and always had transportation lined up! She was SO lovely to work with and she kept our enjoyment as her number one goal.
If you are planning a trip in Key West or are interested in doing one of her organized trips, I really wouldn’t hesitate! Her energetic spirit and eagerness to serve and all around wonderful support was top notch! Let me know and it was GREAT to see you again ! -- Tanya A.
Beading In Paradise Bead Retreat used Clean Getaway Travel/Getaways Key West as the travel agent and Retreat Coordinator for our Retreat that we held in Key West in January 2015. Loretta is wonderful to work with, she worked extremely hard to help make our Retreat the success that it was. All of the details were meticulously drafted out, from making sure that all attendees who needed help with travel and accommodations got what they needed along with an added service of airport pick up. She also arranged healthy delicious lunches and was always available to help out when needed. Whether organizing a Retreat or just planning a trip to Key West, Loretta is the person you need to help plan a successful trip or event. -- Jenni G and Jean D.
Clean Getaway Travel's trip to Tuscany was nothing less than brilliant! Everything was planned and executed flawlessly, so I didn't have to worry about anything except enjoying myself. Loretta is truly a pleasure to be around. She exuberantly made sure we were all in the right places with a huge smile and great joie de vivre. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and this service to anyone. -- Sarah M.
As travelers in the Retreat and Renaissance tour of Italy, my husband and I came to appreciate all of the dedicated hard work that Loretta put into organizing this amazing trip. We have done a lot of traveling on our own and we had some trepidations traveling with a group. Members came from all walks of life. She put each of us at ease with hugs, humor and excellent organizational skills.
Loretta arranged guided tours of Siena, Florence as well as a tasting tour of Florence. The guides were, without exception, excellent. They were knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. Loretta did extensive research to find the best and it paid off. It was a memorable, enjoyable trip and it would not have been possible without Loretta’s dedication and love of making the best of a travel experience. – Linda B.P.
Loretta and Clean Getaway Travel are the BEST! I could not imagine a better getaway than the Retreat and Renaissance trip to Florence and Tuscany. Every aspect of this trip was well thought out and created a true Tuscan Retreat experience. It was an amazing collection of people, whom I am now blessed to call my friends. Amazing farm-fresh food, yoga on the beach, shopping in Florence and Foods of Florence tour... Well done! Can't wait till my next clean getaway! -- Paula R.
My husband and I were part of the Retreat and Renaissance trip to Tuscany/Florence with Loretta and Clean Getaway Travel. Prior to signing up for the trip, we had ALOT of questions, but Loretta was so patient, understanding, and talked with us numerous times, answering all of our questions and concerns. She was always professional, organized, and attentive to all details before during, and even after our trip, with the consolidation of a memory photo album.
We traveled with a group of adults, many of whom we met for the first time at the start of the trip. But with Loretta’s expertise, this group of “strangers” made friends for a lifetime. The tours were very eclectic and there was a great balance of structured tours, free time,...and group dinners at Tenuta San Carlo. We had tastings in Florence, a visit to the Palazzo Vecchio, Siena, Saturnia Hot Springs, and of course who can ever forget our visit to the Accademia Gallery with Michelangelo’s masterpiece of David!
Many thanks, Loretta. We look forward to traveling with you again. -- Jan & Steve S.
Yoga on the Beach has used Clean Getaway Travel as the travel agent for 2 of our Yoga Retreats with a third one being planned now. Loretta is wonderful to work with, as she works diligently and relentlessly to create a trip that is organized, creative, engaged with the culture of the area and just plan FUN! She blends her understanding of travel with her passion as she creates an itinerary that reflects our mission to retreat and enjoy the area we are traveling in. All of the details are meticulously drafted out, with enough time to breathe and enjoy the trip plus plenty of wiggle room for the unexpected that always seems to pop up.
Working with someone who loves to travel and keep it healthy is a treat! I look forward to many more trips that are in collaboration with Clean Getaway Travel! -- Nancy C.
Whether it's a tour or just a hotel reservation, Europe or Key West, you won't find a better company to help with your travel arrangements and recommendations for fun and relaxation than Clean Getaway Travel. Loretta is amazing. She does the research, finds the best locales to visit, comfortable hotels, great restaurants and knowledgeable tour guides. Thanks Loretta for a wonderful trip to Italy! -- Micki G.
I am sitting in a sunny piazza after a magical time in Italy. Thank you so much for all the wonderful times and the special spirit and joy you infused in us all. I wish you all the best that life has to offer! With Gratitude -- Beth M.
Oh man, where do I begin to start on just how helpful Loretta has been in helping me plan my trips to Key West. I was lucky enough to stumble across her checking out a "too-good-to-be-true" ad on craigslist. Turned out it was a scam and I was lucky enough to figure that out before sending any money. But in doing my research, I came across Loretta and her travel company and thought that she might be able to help me out.
Not only did she find a place in an ideal location on the island (just one block off Duval Street), but she was able to get me a great rate for a full month being down there.
Now most travel agents would be content with that, but not Loretta, I honestly think she was more excited for me to get down to Key West than I was to go at times. Often I found myself asking if she was a real person because I had never found anyone that nice and eager to help.
Obviously heading to Key West I wanted to have a bike, but not a rental, I wanted a real Key West bike. Loretta found a bike for me and actually bought it before I got down there and I just paid her back. She also gave me a personalized list of her favorite food spots on the island as well as a couple of books on things to do in Key West. Oh, also she made arrangements to pick me up at the airport when I arrived, take me to the airport when I left, as well as shuttle some friends around when they came down to visit.
I'm not sure that AMAZING customer service is good enough to explain just how helpful Loretta is. She really makes you feel as though you have a life long friend that is helping to plan your trip. I still keep in touch and she still helps me plan trips to the Conch Republic. I can't wait to get back down to the Keys to catch up.
Oh, and yes, Loretta IS a real person! -- Cheers, Jon
Key West. Sober. I couldn’t imagine it. But Loretta and Clean Getaway Travel made that happen. I discovered all the wonderful sober things Key West has to offer, the Butterfly Conservatory, snorkeling, the Ghost Tour, yoga on the beach, wonderful dinners with new friends. Loretta knows how to bring a group together and make it fun. I am so grateful to be able to vacation in clean and sober environment and have a heck of a lot of fun while I’m doing it. Thank you, Loretta! -- Susan F.
I went on a trip with Clean Getaway Travel and had a blast, an absolute blast! Loretta was great, she organized a lot of great tours for us...we ate a lot of really good food, and had a really good time. I am so appreciative of all that was done, thank you for putting together a great trip! -- Becky M.
I just finished a tour with Loretta in Rome, with Clean Getaway Travel and I have to say Loretta picked some very, very, VERY good tours. We had wonderful tour guides who brought us through The Vatican, different places in Rome, the Coliseum, and we had a pizza tasting class that was really neat. It's been a really good trip and I don't want to leave...I would certainly say that this was one of the greatest trips I've had. Thanks! -- Maureen C.
This is the party I was looking for when I was drinking. Loretta is a superlative host and guide and I highly recommend any excursion with her company Clean Getaway Travel. -- Ward B.
I'd like to thank you for the generous amount of time and energy that you gave me while I was in Key West. I loved both of the condos at the Travelers' Palm Inn. They were charming with many amenities and Michel was delightful. I can't thank you enough for this little oasis inside Key West. Your personal touch of making sure I was cared for by checking on me made me feel safe and sound in an unfamiliar area of our country. I enjoyed going to an AA meeting on a bicycle in addition to being able to use the bike as the major mode of transportation. Very cool. I'm thankful you planned the dinner with Don and Nancy at the Fin. The food was excellent and the socializing was welcoming to me who was alone in a strange place. Lastly, thank you for your private escort to and from the airport. I came away from the experience thinking the next time I come to KW I need to stay longer. Thank you for inviting me into your world. -- Magee L.
Just wanted to thank-you for showing us a wonderful time in Key West. Two of my friends had never been there and were extremely grateful for the chance to experience such a unique town. Your suggestions for renting bikes and eating out worked out to everyone's liking. The accommodations where, also, very clean, comfortable and pleasant to stay at. We look forward to visiting this beautiful place and you in our future travels. -- Best Regards, Joanna, Pam, Chrissy
I want to tell you what an awesome trip I took with you on the Renaissance Tour. It was my first trip to Europe and I was excited and a little anxious. However, once we started to correspond and once I received the trip Itinerary for Tuscany, Siena and Florence, Italy I felt more assured, everything was so well planned and coordinated every step of the way, and sounded like all places I wanted to visit including fun, spontaneous trips we were taken on. Our tours within Florence were perfecto and tastings delicious, as well as the gelato enjoyed along the way! You made traveling so much fun and comfortable for us that I'd love to return to Italy again and again! Loretta at Clean Getaway Travel, grazie mille for a perfetto viaggio! Ciao! -- Lynne S
I wanted to say again thank you so much for your help with planning our birthday getaway--what a fantastic time my girlfriends and I had in Key West. Everything you recommended was absolutely top notch, from the hotel, to the excursions, to the recommended restaurants. The Eden House was amazing, my new favorite place to stay when down in the Keys! The Danger Charters sailing tour was so much fun, the crew was knowledgeable and super friendly, and the view of the sunset---of course unbelievable! I was truly impressed with everything you recommended, I will definitely be in touch again soon to plan my next Key West adventure! I look forward to having that cup of coffee with you. You’re the best!! -- Kim L.
Two thumbs up for Loretta and Clean Getaway Travel. This was my first trip to Europe and Loretta walked me through all of the preparations for my trip. Upon arriving, Yup, she had a Mercedes and a gorgeous Italian driver waiting for me. We did all private tours which allowed us to get up close and personal with everything we did. Loretta picked the most perfect tours; I can say there wasn't anything that I didn't get to do or see. Loretta took good care of me and was so attentive to my off the agenda things I wanted to do. Yay Loretta; keep me posted on your next adventure! -- Ciao, Nancy K.
I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and expertise that went into organizing our "Retreat and Renaissance" trip! I enjoyed every minute of the trip and am still looking at all my photos with amazement on how well you pulled everything together. From the hotels in Florence and farm in Grosseto to the tours in Tuscany, every aspect was organized down to the smallest detail that would not only create a memorable experience but also created a group of wonderful friends for life !!!!
I appreciate everything you have done and look forward to our next trip together. Many Thanks! -- Andy C.
