QUOTABLE QUOTES FROM VOYAGES LUMIÈRE CLIENTS

“Jacqui did a magnificent job of helping us move a large group of people around the country. She provided translators, showed us parts of Haiti most people never see, and connected us with the local people. We even had an impromptu countryside picnic in the mountains with folks she knew en-route! Her recommendations were spot on, her prices very reasonable, and her help invaluable. Whenever we are in country, we call Jaxx first. I highly recommend Voyages Lumiere and Jacqui Labrom for all your Haiti needs!”

— Pat and Don Scheu

 “I would like to record my thanks to your Voyages Lumière  representative for all her help and advice during my recent trip to Haiti.  Her knowledge of the country and its customs is extensive and her care of, and attention given to individual clients is way beyond that which might be considered necessary.  She introduced me to a part of the world about which I knew very little.  Her enthusiasm is infectious and I cannot wait to return to such a fascinating country.”

Voyages Lumière’s City Tour:

“Undoubtedly the finest way to see the outstanding features of Port-au-Prince and enjoy the historical background of this island…most impressive.”

— RB – Wiltshire

“On arrival in Haiti we were overwhelmed by the noise and number of people in the baggage hall.  Imagine our relief when we heard a voice calling our names.  We were very pleased to be met by Jacqui Labrom.  Her fluent Creole ensured that we progressed to the car park without the loss of our luggage to the many willing porters. Throughout our stay we found that with her, we were able to mingle with the locals without fear of intimidation.  She was an excellent guide whose knowledge of Haiti has been gleaned over many years as a resident in that country.”

“What better way than to be escorted around the island to visit the amazing beaches and towns and meet the local artisans at work…a must for everyone.”

— RN – Wiltshire

“Your tour was full of positive features.  I want you to know how much we enjoyed our two day trip to Jacmel with you.  It was well thought out and nicely paced.  We enjoyed the unique variety of sights and activities and commend you for your choice of comfortable accommodations.  The food was great too!  But the cherry on top was your commentary.  Whenever we travel, we always have questions and are eager to learn about the history and culture of what we see. This time we were not frustrated by unanswered questions.  You had knowledge and anecdotes which you enthusiastically shared with us.  Thank you for everything.”

— K & S L – North Carolina

“While Haiti gets much unwarranted bad press in U.S. and does have many challenges, visiting Haiti is an experience worth doing. The people are wonderful, beaches beautiful,food great——and the art fascinating! Jacqui handled all the details for our visit and made it a memorable time.”

“My recommendation if you only have a few days in Haiti and want a brief introduction to the country is to contact Voyages Lumière.Run by an English lady who lives in Haiti, Voyages Lumière offer tours to the major sights in and around Port-au-Prince and Cap Haitian, including the Citadelle La Ferrière and Sans Souci Palace. They are informative and fun and conducted by someone who obviously has a great passion for Haiti and its people.”

— Bradt’s Guidebook

“Just a quick note to thank you for the tremendous Haitian adventures.  Your contacts in Jacmel were perfect as was your advice on what to see and where to go. Be assured we will use you again and I will be recommending everyone I know to call you for the best on Haiti.

Thanks again from your Canadian travellers.”

— SH – Toronto

“Thanks to Jacqui Labrom of Voyages Lumière our trip to Haiti was truly memorable. From relaxing beach-side hotels to the bustle of the markets we were given an insight into Haitian culture, the beauty of the mountains and coastline and the proud achievements of an independent nation where the Caribbean, Africa and Europe meet.

Jacqui has an obvious love and enthusiasm for Haiti and her fluent ability in Creole made us feel as if we were being introduced to a very special place.  Every day was full of highlights that we will treasure for many years.  Jacqui has an amazing depth of knowledge into so many aspects of the country’s way of life, history and geography that we felt as if we were sharing in something unique.  When we left it was truly ‘au revoir’ – until we return.”
