Our family has used Baldwin Travel for two trips in the past (Mexico & Paris/Italy) which were flawless. Because of this, we wanted to work with Cindy to plan our honeymoon which turned out to be the best vacation of our lives! Throughout the entire process, Cindy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She provided us with multiple trip options that met our ideas and budget, and was always quick to respond to anything we needed. The honeymoon we selected was a trip to Bora Bora at the Intercontinental Le Moana Resort, and our entire experience was perfect. It was our first time traveling to the south pacific, and Baldwin Travel made it easy by providing connection support and transportation to our resort. The vacation also included honeymoon features that made it feel special! We can’t thank Cindy enough and will continue to work with Baldwin Travel for all future vacations!!” – Sara & Paul Secondi

“We are so grateful to have worked with Cindy to plan our recent trip to China. She made the process of planning so much fun. Whether it was researching prospective destinations, offering suggestions or helping us through the Visa process, she guided us  with a wonderful combination of patience and enthusiasm. Together, we crafted an amazing trip that indulged our interests and  needs. The trip included the extraordinary; the Great Wall, the Terracotta Warriors and the sublime; eating skewers of quail eggs cooked on an outside griddle in the Muslim quarter in Xi’an. Our guides in China were a treat and we remain grateful for their kindness and knowledge. Swain Destinations, our “in country” contacts were terrific. The trip offered us a whole new understanding of China and it’s people; what a gift! Thank you Cindy we couldn’t have done it without you.”

“Our honeymoon was effortless thanks to Cindy Baldwin. Hawaii can be overwhelming with all of the possibilities for trips. Cindy listened to what our priorities were and guided us to the right islands and hotels for us. She had every reservation set up perfectly from the hotels to the cars and flights. We didn’t have to worry about a thing!! I highly recommend Cindy Baldwin for any travel needs and would definitely book another trip through her myself. We couldn’t have asked for more.”

“We had never been on a vacation together before our honeymoon and didn’t really know where to start.  Cindy was so helpful by providing recommendations, coordinating everything with the resort, and making sure we had a trouble-free vacation.  We both loved our stay at Sandals LaSource in Grenada and we can’t thank Cindy enough!”~ Jeff & Colleen Carr

“A big THANK YOU to Cindy Baldwin for helping me plan my trip to South Africa.  My daughter is a US Peace Corp Volunteer and is currently in Swaziland, Africa.  I wanted to visit her, then extend our trip over Christmas and New Years for a mini vacation.  I wasn’t quite sure where to start, I just knew I wanted a safari and beach trip.  Cindy took care of everything, flights, transfers and accommodations.  She worked with Swain Tours to develop a perfectly amazing trip that was flawless.  I cannot say enough about how perfect our trip was!”~Lisa B.

“Our extended family enjoys taking vacations together as often as we can.  The planning however can be quite a challenge, given the size of our group (15+) and the varied age ranges & interests.  This year we decided on Key West, but had no clue where to begin finding the right place for all of us to stay.  In addition, most of us had not been to Key West so that made the planning even more difficult.  We quickly decided that we needed professional help.

In stepped Baldwin Travel!  Cindy was not only very familiar with Key West, but she also specializes in planning trips for large groups (much bigger than ours).  After telling Cindy we preferred a non-hotel site that was walking distance to downtown, she went right to work looking for the right rental property that would meet our needs.

And did she ever succeed!  Cindy found us the ideal rental property in a terrific section right on Duval Street.  She got us the entire second floor of a newly renovated building that had 6 individual suites, each with a full kitchen, full bathroom and sleeping arrangements for 16.  We also had a private pool in the back of the property.  And the best part was we had the whole place to ourselves, just like a penthouse.  We couldn’t have been happier with the location Cindy found for us and the fact that she did all of the arrangements for us.

We will be sure to call on Cindy for our next family adventure.  Highly recommended!”

“Thank you for setting up what was an amazing trip to Paris and Florence for Sara and I. All throughout the trip, Sara and I talked about you and what an outstanding job you always do putting together everything we need in order to assure that our trip goes smoothly. And, once again you did this for us. I was a bit nervous about getting around a foreign country yet you had things lined up like clockwork. We arrived at each airport terminal with a driver waiting for us, our hotel accommodations were perfect and as you promised in a central location that made touring so easy. Restaurants were all within walking distance (and I will tell you we walked a ton) as were all the sites we wanted to see. We even managed to take a train to Venice and spent a day there! I always highly recommend you to anyone I know who is traveling as you do such a fantastic job. Our trip was the best ever and we loved every second of it.” ~Sue & Sara

“We had an amazing time!  The Majestic Colonial was very nice, the food was very good, and drinks were always available!  We loved the swimup room and would definitely go again!  We went horseback riding, which was my favorite activity!  Our butler was awesome.  One night, we had a romantic dinner as a part of the honeymoon package and came back to a candlelit, foaming bath in the room!  We want to return and we will call Baldwin Travel when we do!”  ~Hannah & Scott

“James and I had a dream for our wedding: to bring as many family and friends together on a beautiful island in the Carribean to make lasting memories and experience some real adventures. It would never have come together without Cindy’s incredible dedication to not only us, but each and every one of our guests. From negotiating the best rates and helping our huge group find airfare from locations across the country, Cindy was the consummate professional. But she went above and beyond in her interactions with each of our guests. I lost track of how many people said to me upon arrival in St. Lucia “Cindy was so incredible to work with!” Our dream wedding became a reality because of many wonderful people, and we credit Cindy for being the expert to bring us all together. To top it all off, we had the most incredible honeymoon in Costa Rica all arranged by Cindy at Baldwin Travel. Between the wedding and honeymoon, it was the best three weeks of our lives! Mahalo nui loa Cindy!” -James and Meagan Brogan

“Our first trip to Italy was incredible!  Cindy’s suggestions for excursions were spot on.  We especially loved all the little extras:  private wine tastings, private transfers, small group tours to really interesting and unusual sights.  Her restaurant suggestion in Rome was so good that we ate there twice!” ~Amy and Bill

“Thank you so much Baldwin Travel for helping us plan our destination wedding in Hawaii on the Big Island.  Every detail exceeded our expectations. The Fairmont Orchid was so beautiful and our room upgrade was incredible. Our honeymoon was planned perfectly too!  We loved Kauai and Maui and plan on returning very soon. ~Chantel and Jack

How to get through Airport Security Faster

Getting through airport security can be one of the most unpleasant parts of traveling. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in line behind unprepared passengers as they unlace shoes, search frantically for boarding passes, and rummage through bags for liquids. Having a game plan can make the airport security line a breeze. Here are five tips for making sure you aren’t the person holding up the line.

Tip One: Be Organized
Before you leave for the airport put your ID, credit card, and boarding pass in an easily accessible part of your wallet or bag. There are two reasons for this: one, by going through this exercise, you make sure you don’t leave home without these crucial items and two, you won’t hold up the security line looking for them.

Tip Two: Take it Off
The Transportation Security Administration (“TSA”) has particular rules about what you can and cannot wear through the security checkpoint. You must remove your belt, watch, shoes (slip-ons make this process easier) and any jewelry containing metal. Also, be sure to take off jackets, coats, and sweaters. Place all these items in a bin for x-ray screening.

Tip Three: Know the 3-1-1
Follow the TSA’s 3-1-1 Rule for how much liquid you can take with you in your carry-on luggage.

3-1-1 Rule:

*Each liquid container must be 3.4 ounces or less. That’s the “3”
*All liquid containers must be placed in a clear, one quart-sized plastic bag. That’s the first “1”
*Each passenger is allowed only one clear bag. What fits in the clear plastic bag limits the total amount of liquid you can bring on the plane. That’s the second “1”.

Liquid medications, baby formula, breast milk, baby food and over-the counter medical products such as eye drops, are not part of the 3-1-1 rule and should not be placed in your plastic bag. These items must, however, be declared at the security checkpoint for screening.

Tip Four: Remove Electronics
All of your electronics need to be placed in a bin for screening. This includes laptops, DVD players, CPAP machines, video games, and cell phones. Laptops must be placed in a separate bin and removed from their carrying case (unless the case is TSA approved).

Tip Five: Pack Neatly
Finally, pack neatly so that TSA agents can search your bag quickly in the event an additional screening is needed. Pack in layers so that the contents are easy to identify.

Keeping these five tips in mind will not only improve your traveling experience, but will create a much less stressful environment for those around you. Being prepared is key and having a game plan can make all the difference. Happy Travels!
