Meet Tamesha – Best All Around Customer Service/Sweetest employee in the office

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Thrifty Rent-A-Car System, Inc.

Tamesha looking fab in the reservations department

If you called us, you may have had a chance to speak with Ms. Tamesha. She is truly one of the sweetest employees here. My first week here, she said a friendly ‘hello’ and we chatted during lunch.

Recently, she was announced Best All Around Customer Service and we got to talk about her job, travel and Las Vegas.

K – What do you do?

T- I’m a Reservations Agent for the customer service department. I answer calls and they have questions about tours and activities we offer. Our job is to answer them to the best of our knowledge, and if we don’t know the answer, we call vendors and help them get their answer. I also do advise and assist which means that if in the off chance that a tour is no longer available, I’ll call them and we try to find something else they might like.

K- Which one do you like to do more?

T – I like them both because either way I’m interacting with the customers. =)

K – I figured you might like doing advise and assist more because you get to chat more and find different tours for people.

T – You do. You get to do a little more investigating because you go through the tours online and the city guides to help them figure out what they would want.

K – How long have you been working at Reserve 123?

T – It’s been 3 years.

K – What is your favorite part about your job?

T – Talking on the phone. Talking. I just like to talk! Haha You get to talk to really interesting people, and learn about their life stories, why they’re going on vacation. I like to get the feeling about why and where they are going.

K – So you get to know them a little bit more…

T – Yes, you’re not supposed to spend too much time on the phone (haha), but you know. It’s nice getting to know people, so they’re people and not just customers.

K – What does customer service means to you?

T – I just do my job to the best of my ability. I try to help the customer as much as I possibly can and making sure they are satisfied, and I always keep a positive attitude.

K – Have you had an exciting call that you remember?

T – It was for an Alcatraz tour, I don’t remember what his name was, but he was a Food Network celebrity. I like watching Food Network,  I didn’t know who he was. Kim knew of him though.

(Side note: I remember walking into the break room and Kim was watching Food Network, so I completely believe that Kim would know the host!)

K – What’s your favorite calls to get?

[Michelle walks in and gives Tamesha a hug. "I love this girl. This is like the sweetest girl in this place." Michelle and Tamesha talk about Michelle's pregnancy. By the way, Michelle is having a girl!]

T – I  have had one call with an elderly couple who joked around with each other. It was so sweet. When I get to that age, I want to be able to have as much fun as they do. =)

K – What’s your favorite destination and why?

T – I haven’t had the opportunity to travel as much as I’d like to,  but I recently went to Las Vegas and I really love it there. It’s probably because of all the bright lights and no one ever sleeps! I guess you can call me a night owl.

K – Besides the lights, what was one of your favorite things about Las Vegas?

T – I really loved the M&M factory! Hahaha They had all the different colors and types of M&Ms. They had pink M&Ms, cause you know you never see pink ones and I love pink! I also liked the cabaret show at Treasure Island. You always see that type of stuff on tv but being there and seeing it live is really cool.

K – What’s your favorite tour or what tour would you like to do?

T – I would love to go snorkeling in Oahu.

K – What’s your personal advice to travelers?

T – Bring lots and lots of money. Hahaha When you go somewhere, you always see something extra you want to do, so always have extra money on hand!

K – Where would you like to go on vacation?

T – Fiji! I love the beautiful, clear water. Love it.

K -Last question: what are three qualities you need for excellent customer service?

T – A positive attitude, a loving smile/voice, and being able to communicate effectively. :)

If you’d like to go do other things in Hawaii besides snorkeling (like stand up paddling!) You can see them here.

Eco Tours in the Aloha State

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Summer Special Hawaiian Style! Save 10% + Free Shipping at Coffees of Hawaii. Promo Code: COFFEE10 - 468x60

Aloha travel friends! Let me tell you a little secret… There’s no better way to celebrate the May flowers than donning a gorgeous, aromatic Lei in Honolulu. Now is the perfect time to beat the crowds and the rising temperatures with the ultimate tropical escape – that’s right, it could only be Hawaii. Summer is right around the bend, and there are TONS of exciting Eco tours from Honolulu for you to do! Get off the concrete and discover the gorgeous natural beauty of the Islands. You’ll be glad you did, and remember your adventures for years to come. From active volcanoes to hidden waterfalls, pristine beaches to incredible mountain views in the clouds, swimming with sea turtles to zip-lining through the rainforest, Honolulu really is an Eco Paradise.

The Hawaiian Islands, located at center of the Ring of Fire, are formed entirely of volcanoes, one of the most destructive natural forces on earth. Everyone knows how deadly volcanoes can be. But did you know the benefits of them? Many volcanic materials are very beneficial to nature and human life – lava that is continuously forming new landmasses and islands, diamonds and other precious gemstones, generating geothermal energy, volcanic rocks used for making roads, natural glass from lava (pumice), volcanic ash that is rich in nutrients and greatly improves soil fertility, and carbon dioxide and hydrogen released into the earth’s atmosphere that begin the processes of photosynthesis and the water cycle. Volcanoes have a delicate balance with nature – fire & water, death & life, ashes & lush vegitation. Hawaii is one of the greatest mysteries of the universe. See these marvels up-close for yourself on our Eco adventure tours!

My first recommendation has to be our Big Island Grand Circle Island Volcano Adventure from Honolulu. Not only will you see the magnificent ancient Banyan trees, coffee farms, and Orchid and Anthurium Nursery of Hilo, but you will also get to see the beautiful 80 foot tall and almost 100 foot wide Rainbow Falls. Then the highlight of the tour – a visit to the world famous Kilauea Volcano, which has been steadily erupting since the 1980′s. Your tour guide will entertain and educate as you explore the Volcano National Park, the Jaggar Museum, Thurston Lava Tube, Fern Tree Jungle, Kilauea Iki Crater, and more. Don’t forget your camera on this fantastic tour, or you might just cry. And then have to buy another one. Don’t miss this amazing adventure in Hawaii!

My second recommendation is our Mauka to Makai: Zipline, Kayak, Snorkel & Eco Hike with Lunch from Honolulu. See Oahu the way that you have always dreamed of during a thrilling Eco-adventure on the Windward coast of Oahu. Hiking through the rainforest of the Ko’olau Mountains, soaring above the trees of Oahu’s valley, and kayaking through the crystal clear waters of the Pacific are all included in this fun-filled day trip! Your expert ecologist is devoted to showing off the unique life that exists only in Hawaii’s climate. This popular tour sells out well in advance, so reserve early.

On our Ultimate Circle Island Eco Adventure with Lunch from Honolulu, you’ll get to see Hawaii’s wide variety of wildlife with stops at a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle basking grounds and bird watching at native Hawaiian wetlands. Your professional tour guide will share information about the many different plants, birds, and animals that call Hawaii home. Designed to both entertain and educate, this tour will expose you to Oahu’s raw natural beauty with stops off the beaten path. You will also visit Byodo-In Temple, enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, see famous lookouts and beaches of Oahu, hike Waimea Valley and enjoy a refreshing waterfall swim!

No matter what you wish to do in Honolulu, Aloha Tours is proud to be your source for sightseeing tours and attractions on the Islands of Hawaii. We offer tours and activities on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, The Big Island, Lanai, Molokai, and Molokini. Indulge in some of the best foods in the world, take in some sun in this tropical climate, and enjoy a never ending array of things to see and do. Call us toll-free for assistance with booking your trip today. Ho’olu komo la kaua – please join us!

Maui Tours and Activities

Maui’s scenery is amazing and its landscape is very diverse. The western coast is sunny and lined with white-sand beaches. The warm ocean waters are filled with humpback whales, and Mount Haleakala is the active volcano on the Island. Maui features countless tours, attractions, and activites from scenic flights to boat tours and diving excursions.

Kauai Tours and Activities

White sand beaches, tropical rain forests, coconut lined coasts, and the majestic Na Pali Coast are just a few of the backdrops in this tropical paradise. Kauai lies about 20 minutes by air from Honolulu in the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Encompassing roughly 550 miles, Kauai is the oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands. Kauai’s scenery has been used in a number of Hollywood productions including Jurassic Park (see the waterfall photo below), South Pacific, and Fantasy Island.

Oahu Tours and Activities

Oahu is a unique Island that finds a place in the hearts of many people. If you enjoy the outdoors, explore our beautiful lands and sea as you hike through rainforests, stroll along beaches, swim, surf, and dive in crystal clear waters. Oahu also features breathtaking surroundings, perfect for a romantic experience.

Enjoy the finest in dining, resorts, and scenery in a place where people are friendly and memories are everlasting. Oahu is an Island rich in history and culture, full of friendly faces, and incredible experiences.

Big Island Tours and Activities

Hawaii’s Big Island is filled with energy. Polynesian legend claims the goddess Pele gave volcanic birth to the Islands of Aloha. Hawaii’s Big Island is her latest and greatest creation, and it is still warm from its fiery birth. The Big Island is twice the size of its sisters combined, and growing every day as its active volcano, Kilauea, sends new land to a steamy meeting with the ocean 4,000 feet below. There are countless waterfalls feeding rainforests, and the landscape is more like that of a fantasy. There are massive black lava fields that remind you of the island’s relative youth, and the numerous uncrowded beaches let you catch your breath amidst unspoiled beauty.

Lanai Tours and Activities

Lana’i is a place of pristine, primal beauty, Hawaii’s “Most Enticing Island” where you can walk a mile on a beach without seeing another person. The former site of one of Hawaii’s major pineapple plantations, Lana’i has been transformed into a destination known, and coveted, by discerning travelers from all points of the compass.

Lana’i visitors can choose from two world-class resort hotels or unique “local style” accommodations. Golfers will revel in the challenges offered by two distinctly different championship courses. Visit Lana’i and you will find unexpected treasures joyfully shared by a people who are genuine and kind. We provide sightseeing day tours to Lana’i from Maui.

Molokai Tours and Activities

Moloka’i is Hawaii’s “Most Natural Island.” A haven for outdoor explorers, eco-seekers, and ocean adventurers, Moloka’i has little traffic and no traffic lights. On this special island folks go along at a very different pace. Many work the land, others harvest the bounty of the sea. Visitors can choose to hike through lush, magnificent valleys, ride horseback along gorgeous coastlines, mountain bike over soaring sea cliffs or kayak miles of pristine barrier reefs. We provide sightseeing day tours to Moloka’i from Maui.
