My Areas of Expertise
Family Trip at Christmas
Our First Trip Ever!
Glad we found Val Burnett for our travel needs.
First time trip
Thank you Matt & Steph! It was my pleasure working with you. I am glad that I was able to provide a wonderful experience and less stress for your first time traveling! That is so important to me and I look forward to many more adventures together!
Best travel agent ever!
Our last two trips had to be cancelled. The first was due to the death of an immediate family member on our second day of a European holiday then a Mediterranean cruise, and the second to Mazatlan was due to Covid-19. Val was amazing! She was available 24/7, and handled everything for us with such calm efficiency. I should mention that Val lost her commission for all her work before and after the cancellation due to Covid-19, yet she worked tirelessly on our behalf. Of all our travel agents over the years, Val Burnett is by far and above, the best ever! We will not use anyone else for our travel needs now.

An Advocate To Help You!
Val is wonderful, and has helped us with booking 3 different trips. She saved us significant costs on Europe flights. She also has helped us when we had issues with flight changes, rental cars etc. It is great to have an advocate to help you when you are traveling and the unforeseen occurs.
Playa Del Carmen Getaway
Val was more than helpful finding our dream vacation, super accommodating, and always there when we had questions. Easy to book via email, and phone call! We would definitely book with Val again, thanks for the great knowledge and great experience !!! Panama jack in playa del Carmen was absolutely amazing, the staff were fantastic, very catering , and very pleasant to deal with . Food at the resort was absolutely top notch. Location was perfect very close to the busy part of town, with loads to do ! And loads to see . Did a few excursions that were phenomenal! I have zero bad things to say about this resort, and 100% would go back in a heartbeat.
Family Vacation - Dreams Tulum
Our Family a group of 10 of us just got back from a 10 day vacation to Dream Tulum. It was wonderful and Val is the most amazing travel agent we have ever dealt with. Thank you Val for making this trip so easy and even checking in to make sure everything was as it was suppose to be. You went beyond what I ever expected. Would totally book through Wanderlust again and recommend you to anyone looking to travel with great service.
Day Of The Dead - Sandos
We definitely had a great time at the Sandos - the rooms were excellent and right beside one another, they were clean and the AC worked well. We were on the ground level, which we all loved, the monkeys were at our balcony in the trees for about 1 hour on one morning so we were pretty excited. The Day of the Dead celebrations were really cool - a parade and they had food stands all around the restaurant circle and it was some of the best food we ate all week! The a la carte's were great - the buffets were ok. The beach was great - even though it was small - it was clean, the water was clean and the sun was nice and hot. We loved all the walking areas on the resort - we saw all the cenotes and the animals. Thank you for all you did in helping us plan this out - the private shuttle was definitely worth it! I'll be in touch in the New Year to plan our next trip - likely in Oct/Nov again. Thanks! Nicole and family
Mexica Family Vacation
We had an amazing vacation in Mexico at Riu Jalisco thanks to https://www.facebook.com/thewanderlustgetaway The price was less than I could have gotten on my own and the resort options were catered to our family needs. I would total recommend contacting Val Burnett to arrange your next getaway. Thanks for the help Val!!!
