Here are what a few of our happy clients had to say:
“My Blaycation bucket list at the WSOP 2015 was one of my greatest events ever attended, Mark and Bernard were exceptional hosts, highly recommend.”-Gerry McWeeney Los Angeles
“These guys know how to tick off your bucket lists. I got to go on the main stage and hold a WSOP bracelet and they framed the picture for me. Are you kidding me? This trip was more than I ever could have imagined!” -Grumpa from Boston
“What an amazing poker experience. I have played in my home game for years and always dreamed of playing live at a big event like the WSOP and finally it’s a reality. Blaycation made the experience even more incredible. I’m looking forward to my next Blaycation Poker Trip.”-Kempton form Louisiana
“I got to meet three WSOP world champions and participate in an interview with one of my heroes too. I can take home more than just memories from this experience. I can’t thank you enough.” –Jason from Minnesota
“Both my wife and I are big poker players and we were just blown away with this Blaycation experience. Not only did I meet my hero and get a picture and autograph from him (Barry Greenstein) but Cindy got a big hug from her favorite Daniel Negreanu too.”-Mike & Cindy Bolster Iowa
My experience with the Blaycation WSOP Colossus trip would have been impossible to emulate on my own or with a different travel agency. They have amazing connections, and put together so many unexpected perks, our whole group was amazed with the seemingly never-ending opportunities. Not to mention I got to meet and talk with my favorite poker player, Jason Mercier.”-Kurt from Colorado
“First class organization! We were treated like royalty and had insider access to areas at the World Series of Poker we never could have dreamed of having!” -Chad and Tammy Christian
“Mark Stiles of Blaycation and Bernard Lee gave me the best bucket list vacation that I could ever expect! Being 72 yrs. Old, a poker player and going out to Las Vegas for the first time in my life, playing in the WSOP Colossus poker event and all the extra activities that we participated in was more than expected. Thank you Mark and Bernard.”-Kenny Tens, Brockton, MA
“Having a sit down with Norman Chad to shoot the breeze was a major unexpected surprise for me. He’s a funny, caring and a terrific guy. Thanks Bernard.”-EW from Mexico
“Had I not received personal one-on-one coaching from Bernard, I would not have run so deep. I will be back again and again and I’m brining all my mates.”-Brett from Cincinnati
“I was part of the 777 Blaycation, which was extremely fun. We got to attend Bernard Lee training sessions as well as meet professional poker players that you normally would only get to see on tv. I recommend any poker player, whether they are just learning, playing for fun or a pro to go on a Blaycation trip. You won’t regret it.”- Jay Philips, East Bethel, MN
