I'm Dana Williams. Your Event Organizer. I'm a group travel agent who's been organizing events for my clients since 2007.

Hi Dana, On behalf of my girls I would like to say thank you for all you have done. We had a GREAT time & we are already looking forward to next years event. I’m sorry we didn’t get the chance to meet you in person, but like you said its so much going on. I know we all have spread the word already to a few of our friends telling them this is a MUST event to attend & not miss. I must say that I am now hooked on this event & will attend every year as well as my other girlfriends. I would like to thank you once again for all you have done & I know I am looking forward to working with you in the near future. I believe we are talking about going on the Glam Cruise Jan 2012. Thank you, B. - B. Walden

Top of the Line 

The Essence Festival package that Dana created was top of the line. Everything was in walking distance and accessible. We did not have to spend a lot of extra money at alk. Breakfast was provided daily and was a big plus. Especially the dinner cruise. Meals and drinks were free. The seats at the concert all 3 nights were excellent. Had a wonderful time. Now must go home and rest...!!!!! - J.  Stevenson

Accommodations were Great 

I had a wonderful time and the accommodations were great. -  C. Miller

Best Deal Ever 

This was my first time attending the Essence Festival, upon my arrival we were greeted by valet attendants. They were very professional and extremely helpful. Our accommodation was outstanding, being directly the street from the Convention Center was the best deal ever. The breakfast voucher and the breakfast services at the Marriott was awesome. I was totally pleased with my stay.Dana Williams thank you, and thank you. - V. Wiggins

Best Vacation Ever 

This was the best vacation ever. I forgot my tickets to the festival Dana was right there to send me my tickets. Everything was fantastic! - B. Jackson


The Marriot Hotel on Convention Center Blvd was amazing. The location was perfect. The distance to most events was very minimal(walking distance). The hotel staff was courteous and attentive. I would stay at this hotel again and I would use Dana Williams as a travel agent again. Thanks Dana!!!! - L. Williams

One of the Best Vacations 

There were 8 total members in my group. I heard nothing but praise from allot them the whole trip. It was really nice to hear some of them say this was one of the best vacations they have had. And they all travel frequently. The payment plan made all the difference in the world and the package was definitely worth every dime. We are planning 2015 real soon. I can't thank Dana Williams enough, for all her hard work. We appreciate your talents and thank you.  - S. Miller

This was my first trip with Williams Travel & Cruises. OMG! I had so much fun on this trip. Sleep was not in my vocabulary the entire week. The concerts were outstanding! We saw and met all kinds of stars. Everything about the trip was just magnificent. All we had to do was walk across the street to a vast variety of events. Can't wait to do this trip again in 2015!  - G. Hill

Could Not Asked for Anything Better

I had a great experience. I could have not asked for anything better. The convention center was literally across the street, great breakfast, and the VIP boat was on and popping, the seats were great and nobody can beat the price for this package. I had a blast! Thanks for everything!  - G. Jones
