Bladerdeeg Specialist
Delicious Greek street food at the

Thessaloniki Bougatsa (a Greek pastry with custard, cheese, spinach, feta

Greek teas!

Kartika For
delicious & traditional Indonesian food. We recommend trying Rijsttafel,
which is literally translated to Rice Table. It consists of many small dishes
with meat, fish, veggies (vegetarian options available too) of different
flavors, textures, colors & degrees of spiciness served with rice. We call
it an Indonesian tapas. Make sure to reserve a table beforehand!

A family-run Afghan restaurant. Beautiful and very tasty dishes made with
care and passion. There is no menu since they use seasonal ingredients and
create dishes on a daily basis. The restaurant is situated in the heart of
beautiful Jordaan. The interior is not very cozy, but the food is fantastic!

La Perla
Authentic and delicious wood-fired pizzas, pastas and salads. This little
eatery is situated in the Jordaan. Service is not the best, but the food is
very good. If you go in the evening, be sure to make a reservation beforehand.

From Our Clients...

Spectacular Shore Excursions

"Everything worked out even better than planned. On all three shore excursions we met people in the bus who said they appreciated those excursions and they were far better than the ones offered by the ship. We, too, were impressed with the quality of the excursions and tour guides. The cruise was spectacular and all the arrangements made in advance were spectacular."
– Jayne W. - Norwegian Cruise Line

Service & Savings

I have thrown just about every curveball I'vegot at Rachel and your folks and you've handled them all without breaking a sweat. A long cruise with tours in a foreign country? No problem. Erratic friends who can't make up their mind if they want to go or not? No problem. Last minute hotel bookings needed? No problem. And should I mention the bonuses? Getting random calls to let us know we've been upgraded in our cabinor the cruise fare has dropped? Extra onboard credit? I use a travel agency so I don't have to worry. With TravelPerks, not only do I not have to worry, I'm happily surprised at the GOOD that happens. I recommend TravelPerks on ANY opportunity I've got.

– Dante G - Program Manager @ Microsoft

Unique Travel Experiences

"TravelPerks provides us their unique personal touch on all of our cruises to make it successful"
– Leslie Gaffney - Former Executive @ Sony

Not a Single Thing To Worry About

"Everything had been taken care of from beginning to end. Not a single thing to worry about once we arrived at the airport until we touched down after our week long vacation. Also, Rachel specifically, everyone was great at making sure we knew what to expect before we left and made sure all questions had been answered."
– Matthew R. - Hard Rock Punta Cana

Once In A Lifetime Trip

I was talking about TravelPerks during our state presentation, and a member commented that they had booked cruises through TravelPerks and had a fabulous experience! They both said that you guys were super easy to work with and explained everything well and they felt cared for. It's not often we get members interrupting a presentation to put it out there that they had a great experience!

– FOP - Proud Partner

Service redefined...

"We have had many vacations over the years, worked on every possible angle to stretch fun and funds. Theresa redefines service, the personal attention, genuine compassion and ferocious drive to make our experiences unique and special is unmatched.

Theresa takes the guess work out of the process by asking questions and listening to create your perfect getaway. We have worked with get for our last several vacations, and will continue for many years to come.

It is difficult to find anyone who knows how to provide this level of service, I would welcome the opportunity to help anyone understand why they should select TravelPerks  DreamVacations."
