My Background

Lynda Turley, ctc,ds is an Independent Contractor at Alpine Travel of Saratoga and has been a luxury travel advisor for over 30 years.

I've been selected for Travel & Leisure magazine’stop 125 Super A-list Agents for 13 years and have been chosen for the food and wine travel advisory board for Saveur magazine, and by Australia Tourism as a Premier Aussie Specialist and was selected by Zinfandel Advocates and Producers- ZAP- as their official travel advisor for their food and wine vacations. I am also an Accredited Space Agent for Virgin Galactic selling their space flights that will begin very soon.

I've grown up in the San Francisco bay area and know the wine regions of California well. My favorite wine appellations are in the lesser known wine regions in California, Australia and New Zealand. My favorite wines- a crisp Sav Blanc, a fruity Zinfandel or an earthy Tempranillo.

I love helping my clients find the perfect vacation created just for them. Whether it's multi-generational families or couples on a honeymoon or a celebration getaway- I customize your vacation to your requests.

The Best Travel Agent I have ever had!

Lynda has been fabulous at answering all my questions (and there have been many)quite promptly and thoroughly. I am a detail oriented person and she has certainly supplied me with lots of details and information regarding our upcoming cruise. This cruise is a big deal for us and I feel comfortable and excited to go now. Travel Agent is not just a title for Lynda, it is really what she does! Thanks so much Lynda!!!

Lynda has booked several trips for us. Her suggestions are always right on target. What I like the best is that she always gets right back to us with answers. She is very personable. We think Lynda's great!

Lynda did everything possible to assure us of a smooth and seamless trip from our US departure to our US arrival. We did have a problem arise, we emailed her the situation, got her usual almost immediate response that she would look into it and voila within a week or so a credit was posted to our account from the ship. We DO recommend Lynda as an excellent knowledgable travel agent.

Lynda has planned several trips for us and there is never a miss - always a hit. Our every need is met and then some. We are treated as VIP's everywhere we go that she has arranged. We get extra perks as Virtuoso travelers and almost always get better rooms. She is so easy to work with and gets everything done immediately - no waiting around for an answer from her when you request something. We have recommended her to many of our friends who now also use her services and love her too. They just don't come any better. She is efficient, nice, fun to work with and certainly knows her stuff. We would recommend her to anyone - anytime!

Always right on top of things!

Lynda is always immediately available to take care of any or our requests efficiently. She makes sure the hotels we stay in treat us as VIP's and always gets our Virtuoso amenities to us. She is an expert on cruises and always knows our tastes and preferences and makes sure everything is perfect. I would never hesitate to recommend her and in fact have - and many of our friends now use her services.

We have used Lynda for years - for small trips, major trips, family trips - everything. She is the best! She always anticipates our needs, makes good connections for us ahead of time so that we get the VIP treatment wherever we go, and communicates clearly so we are never confused.
