    Destination Wedding

    I worked with Jeff planning a destination wedding from trying to decide if an all inclusive or cruise wedding was the way to go. After much research (and patience! on Jeffs part) we decided to book a cruise wedding out of New York. Jeff went back and forth with me to show me what resorts offered what in terms of wedding packages and the requirements of each country but our guests felt most comfortable on a cruise ship. Jeff took the planning right out of my hands at that point and reached out to our guests regarding deposits and final payments, he grouped our cabins as best he could so everyone was as close to each other as they wanted to be. It took a majority of stress off of my plate to be able to say "call Jeff"
    All in all the experience was so exceptional that I will continue to work with Jeff & the Murdoch travel team for all of my travel needs in the future.

    Weddings are stressful enough, your destination planning shouldn't be!

    We can’t say enough amazing things about Jeff and his entire team at Murdoch. For over a year Jeff has held our hands while helping us plan our dream wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica. We’ve laughed together, cried together and been through a pandemic together. Jeff is so much more than a travel agent. He’s a wedding planner, a therapist, and an honorary member of our bridal party. Our guests have nothing but fabulous things to say about them as well. The booking process was a breeze, the payment plans were attractive and his bubbly personality is contagious. We’ve referred Murdoch to other destination wedding couples and would do it again in a heartbeat!!

    Destination Wedding During COVID

    My fiancé and I decided to book a destination wedding in Punta Cana. We found the top few rated agencies in the area and we were going to meet with a few to choose the one we liked best. The first person we met with was Jeff from Murdoch Travel and after our first visit, seeing how knowledgeable, friendly and engaged he was, we knew we didn't have to look any further. Jeff gave us a ton of information and options based on the criteria we gave him so we could make an informed decision on where and when we would go. Since we have family and friends close to Toronto and Ottawa, he was able to coordinate one group package with two different flight schedules. He summarized everything up on a personalized web site for us and we sent out all our invitations. That was in January of 2020! Little did we know, this Corona Virus we were hearing about overseas was about to throw a huge wrench in our plans. Since then, we have had many conversations about moving deadlines and changing dates. He is always very responsive and never pushy. Just recently, we had to push the date again and Jeff has been nothing but helpful!

    I would recommend Jeff and Murdoch Travel in a heartbeat!

    Murdoch Travel made everything so easy for this bride!

    I was introduced to Jeff after attending my cousins wedding in Jamaica. He had made everything so easy for both her and all her guests. When it was my turn, I didn’t even think twice before booking with Murdoch Travel! They booked almost 100 people for a destination wedding in Jamaica and everything was so organized. He had our guests coming from 5 different locations in Canada. They handled all our needs and requests with such ease. 150% recommend.
