Dear Lynne,

   I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the wonderful job you did on my recent trip to the Dive Equipment Manufacturers Association convention in Miami Beach. You really went out of your way and the results spoke for themselves. This was a very important convention/conference for me because this was the first time I attended as a Dive Shop owner. The hotel you chose was excellently located on the beach yet was an easy two block stroll to the Miami Beach Convention Center. The hotel had everything I needed, a beautiful pool, two great restaurants, a Tiki Bar, a lounge, and a coffee shop. Did I tell you it was also on the beach? It was also a comfortable five block walk to the Lincoln Road Mall and a short cab ride to the chaos of South Beach. Being a the largest international Dive Show in the world meant that there were meetings going on outside the convention itself and you had me right in the middle of it all. My air travel and transfers went just as well. I can't thank you enough you really made my life easy and I will recommend your services to anyone I know that is need of a travel consultant!

                                                              Thanks Again,
                                                                 Steve

We were "one of those" clients who didn't know exactly where, exactly when, what our price range was, etc., but of course we wanted the best vacation for the best price.  We had Lynne looking from Vegas to New Orleans to the Caribbean.  I would call her daily with all these ideas and she would call me back with her ideas.  She was always very patient.
 One day I received and an email from Lynne.. "Lauren, this is the best deal you will ever get, trust me!" 
 I did trust and it was one of the best decisions I've made.  We went to Beaches in Turks and Caicos and had the vacation of a life time and the deal of a life time.  Because of Lynne's reputation we were even upgraded to Concierge Service.
 My vacation process started by not knowing where or when I was going and ended with a fabulous vacation.  This could have only happened through an experienced and professional travel agent.  I would only use Lynne and the Travel Scene for all of my travel needs.     Lauren & Jules   - Warren, RI


Lynne is a real pro - very knowledgeable and customer
focused.  She listens to my needs and comes up with
creative solutions that fit perfectly.  She is my
trusted advisor when it comes to travel.
