My Background

For 44 years I have specialized in vacation travel and managed very large retail office.  I semi retired early in 2009 so that my husband and I could have more time to follow our passion for travelling and seeing the world.

We moved to Mexico, which provides a great location to start exploring from.Sharing this love of travel and my years of experience is what I love to do.  I now have more time to spend on each client and provide them with expertise to make each and every trip one of a life time.

Great Service. We decided at the last minute for a trip and Herma was able to book all the required portions - cruise, air, hotel - and did it in record time - even making an adjustment at an even later date. Thanks

Secrets huatulco

Hi We were at secrets huatulco feb 9-16. I had emailed them that. It was Gerald's birthday so they gave us a free upgrade room. Secrets was beautiful with good food and we did not have to reserve restaurants which was great . Loved the coffe shop and we could make coffee in the room,a plus for us. The staff was always very friendly and the room views were gorgeous. We took 4 excursions which were all fun. Huatulco is very clean and feels safe. The resort does need more shade sources. We would reserve chairs in the early am or no shade for us. We also could do some snorkling at the secrets resort which was great. The sunwing flights were fine. I definitely would go to huatulco again. Freda

When I discussed a possible cruise from a travel brochure with Herma, she suggested a revised cruise which incorporates most of the highlights of the original cruise with some added exciting ports of call. She also suggested arriving at the start of the cruise an extra day early so that we could adjust to the 5 hour time zone change more leisurely. Then we discussed the possibility of adding Iceland and although we first discussed starting with Iceland, we ended up deciding to end with this country and Herma made the necessary changes with no upset. I have known Herma for several years and have always admired how she works so hard to make a person's trip the best that it can be. She is an exceptional agent to work with!

Herma's planning and attention to detail, in this case involving 13 people from two countries and four different locations, is, as we have come to expect, second to none. She is a pleasure to deal with at all times and very highly recommended.

Herma did a great job booking our trip; she found us great accommodations and took care to ensure that the hotel was close to the action downtown.

Herma was again her professional thoughtful and conscientious advisor. Our trip was wonderful except for forest fire smoke and a Vision Host who was not the best one could wish for. If we have another trip to plan, Herma would be our "go to" advisor.

Wrong advisor.

My advisor was not Herma Buchanan, it was Paola Molinari-Shaw. I was very satisfied with the services offered by Paola.

We have booked with Herma serveral times and each experience has been positive. She answers all questions we may have, and all our information i.e. tickets or insurance papers are sent out in ample time. We are planning another trip in September and plan on calling her again. Thanks Herma :)

Excellent! Herma was always proactive. She worked with Globus and a private travel agent from Santiago to put two tours together. Herma, also keep me informed of even the slightest changes on flights and tours.

Herma was efficient, prompt and very helpful. Her suggestions were much appreciated. We had very little notice about our trip and Herma had all of the arrangements made in an afternoon. We were very pleased.
