For the second year in a row, Minnesota-based Romance Travel Group has been recognized by Travel Impressions, one of the country’s largest and best tour operators, as a “Best of the Best” travel agency. This designation follows an announcement earlier this year that named Romance Travel Group "Partner of the Year." These prestigious honors are given to agency partners that are considered Travel Impressions’ top performers and expert travel planners.
In November 2016, Shelli and Ross Nornes, owners of Romance Travel Group, traveled to Secrets Playa Mujeres to receive the award at the Travel Impressions’ 21st annual “Best of the Best” gala event. "Travel Impressions hosts such a wonderful event for their Best of the Best agencies!" says Shelli Nornes. "Their appreciation of their top partners is very apparent not only by the amazing event they put on, but also by their efforts and willingness to go above and beyond for us throughout the year. This industry is all about partnerships, and we have an incredible one with Travel Impressions."
