“Ellen did a wonderful job booking our trip! I enjoyed being in touch, all the options given and meeting Ellen when we arrived. Even down to arranging the rental of Dive equipment in time to leave on the boat. This was a trip of a lifetime for us!”
Don & Karen P. New Jersey
I could not have ask for better service from start to finish. From my first contact with Ellen through the entire cruise all was perfect. The staff at Visailing were extremely helpful and prepared us for what to expect as this was our family's first time to the BVI's and first time on a sailboat.
Ellen's recommendation for the yacht and crew that suited our needs was fabulous!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
