What Our Clients Have to Say
Destination Depot has planned two different educational itineraries for my Six Grade Students (middleschool) for the past 3 years! We have experienced the pleasure and the sense of security of Carol Franklin’s expertise, knowledge, professionalism, and service with a smile, with each encounter . The first time Carol assisted me with planning a trip it made my job so much easier, that I would not think of planning another trip with out her! I have planned these same trips for over 15 years, but having a competent and professional person to work with, made it easy for me to let it go and let someone else do it! She has never failed to think of every detail necessary to make our trip a successful and enjoyable one. She is a excellent listener, hence this quality allows her to not only give you what you ask for, but also the the things you don’t ask for but need! […]
She’s totally committed. She has always provide us with 24 hours service. No matter the hour, if I needed her I felt extremely comfortable calling her. Most times however, she called me!!! She clearly understood and complied with my needs and expectations for each trip/experience. She even came to the school to meet us on the return home, and waited with me until all the students were picked up!! How about that for service! How awesome it is to have someone so in-tuned to my group’s profile, that it allowed me to relinquish all of our plans to her ,with comfort and total trust in her ability. Each year bring different challenges but Carol has faced each of them with a smile and resolve!!!!! I have no regrets and will never think of planning a trip without the services of Mrs. Carol Franklin /Destination Depot. Our sincere appreciation and the highest accolades for a job well done!!

Carol Franklin and Destination Depot created an AWESOME New York experience! My mom and I often travel to New York, but this was the first time that we were actually able to stay in the center of New York, without a car, at a very affordable price! Air travel, executive bus transportation, hotel, lavish dinner, and Motown the Musical play on Broadway were all well-planned and on time! But most importantly, Carol’s warm and down-to-earth personality made each of us feel comfortable and welcome! Thanks Carol!

Destination Depot has planned educational itineraries for groups at my elementary school for nearly six years! Carol Franklin is knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and efficient–just the qualities you would want working with large groups in unfamiliar environments! Each journey (from Atlanta, GA to Washington, D.C.!) I have taken with school age students has been a GREAT success and the feedback given by other trip coordinators working with this “travel agent extraordinaire” has also been very positive. I would not hesitate to utilize the services again because Destination Depot has never let us down and in my field, that says a lot! Thank you, Carol for all of your hard work and dedication in providing our youth with real world experiences that matter and memories that last.
Carol Franklin and Destination Depot did an outstanding job coordinating our school trip to the Jr. Beta Convention and for that we say, “THANK YOU.” You will and have been highly recommended to others for future trips!!!!!Sharon H. – DeKalb County School System
Destination Depot was a God-send to me. And I mean that literally. I was provided with the most efficient and reliable service I could have asked for our trip to the Jr. Beta Convention. Carol went way beyond the call of duty. The service was professional as well as personable. I can say that if it had not been for the services provided by Destination Depot, I am not certain this trip would have taken place. I would recommend Carol to anyone planning a trip. I will be calling her again in the future.Yolanda S. – DeKalb County School System
I just wanted to thank you for coordinating my trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios and to let you know that we had a great time. You did an excellent job planning our trip and the accommodations at the Disney resort and the Orlando hotel were nice as well. I will definitely keep you in mind when I plan another major vacation. Having the meal plan included with the resort fee was definitely the way to go. You rock, Carol. Thanks again!!
Recently, I attended the Color Purple Dinner & Show event sponsored by Carol Franklin of Destination Depot and it was most enjoyable. From the easy payment plan (since I am on a budget) to the fabulous dinner; everything was planned with our enjoyment in mind. I felt like royalty for just one night. My daughters went with me and we have not stop talking about how well planned everything was and how smooth it all went. Carol outdid herself and I will definitely be traveling with her again. Six stars to you Carol.Brenda Y.
I have to thank Carol Franklin and Destination Depot for the success of our Beta Club Convention which was held in November in Macon, Georgia. I was getting frustrated trying to get everything in order for the trip. We were late starting our planning. This was the first time for all the Beta Club sponsors and students. We felt like we were trying to lead each other around in the dark.
Once Carol stepped in, it took a great burden from us. She was able to take care of our reservations, get us a bus, and give us other information that we needed about what to expect at the convention. She was even willing to help schools work together.
I can tell that Carol really loves what she is doing. She puts her heart into it and in the end, you get an enjoyable trip without the stress.Sonya H. – Teacher – DeKalb County School, Georgia
When I turned sixty years old, my husband gave me my very first birthday party. We planned a group trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. We stayed at a 5-star resort and we knew we wanted the same type of service in handling our trip. We could trust only one person and company to handle this special occasion for us, and that person was Carol Franklin and Destination Depot. No detail was left undone and I am forever grateful for her attention to detail and care. I am a stickler for details and a recovering perfectionist. Carol is the one person who is more meticulous than I am. So I was able to relax and not try to micro manage this event. If you are looking for a company and a person with whom you can trust your most precious events, you need not look any further than Carol Franklin and Destination Depot.
Carol Franklin/Destination Depot has planned two trips for me, a graduation cruise for daughter and my entire family, a couple’s getaway to Sandals in Jamaica. Each trip was well planned very well and more than I could have imagined. Carol is very organized, professional and accommodating during both trips. She was very detailed in her planning and what I liked best was being allowed to make monthly affordable payments way in advance of the trips. I was thoroughly impressed with her professionalism and constant communication. She kept me informed on all details of each trip and what to expect. I would highly recommend her with no reservation to plan any type of trip. She has proven to me that she can handle a large group or just a couples getaway to make your trip amazing. It was evident to me that planning trips is her passion.
Destination Depot.… Oh! how awesome My retiree club recently booked a cruise with Destination Depot and she did a phenomenal job to make our trip really a “cruise”. From booking the cruise, what to do while on the cruise, purchasing airline tickets & plus transportation to and from port. Carol, the company’s owner even kept up with our group to make sure everything was going as planned. She got in touch with us after returning to make sure we got to the airport for our flight home. The best part of Destination Depot is the payment plan they offered. It was made very affordable and time manageable. Now! how sincere is that!!! I highly, highly recommend Destination Depot for their planning any trip or excursion you might have. The way to GO is with Destination DEPOT!!! We are looking forward in booking more trips with them.
My cruise which was planned by Destination Depot was an great experience; the service , the special dinners was great, the entertainments, the planning, the attention to detail…..everything!. From the begin to the end, excellent!
