My Background

Having been in the travel agency business for almost thirty years, I have been to many place and seen many things.  Now that my husband has retired and my two children are grown, I am more available to go places that I have not to before, such as Antartica, South America, and the far East to name a few.

I intend to go there and more since they are all on my "bucket list"!

I have been on three European River Cruises and love selling them to our clients - they are really an exciting destination and a lot of fun!

I sailed on the Danube River from Budapest to Nuremberg, Holland and Brussels for the Tulip Time cruise,

and my personal favorite - Basel to Amsterdam in early December for the Christmas Market cruise. I am not sure

that I can beat that one!

I have also been on dozens of cruises from the Caribbean, New England, Trans Atlantic, Alaska (3 times - love it!), and Mediterranean.

In my opinion, cruising is definitely the best way to travel!

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Sanctuary CapCana in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!  Ann was told by me to "pick a place on the beach where I can still go out and explore."  Did she ever provide!  We both loved the resort, food, drink, people, and scenery.  Ann promised we would love this location for our honeymoon and she was right.  I would definitely recommend and plan on booking with her again!  Thank you!

This was a trip of a lifetime - touring many countries plus a magnificent cruise on the Riviera owned by Oceania.  The service provided by Oceania is beyond words.  Every attention to detail was maintained throughout the entire 10 day cruise.  Would highly recommend Oceania to others.

Ann Winegeart @ Creative Travel

I've used Ann Winegeart to plan 10+ trips and would not take a trip without using her expert services. She takes care of the details that really matter, such as locating our cruise cabins in the most convenient spot, our plane seats as requested, and stays in contact before the trip to answer any and all questions.   I travel with a group of 6  to 26 (depending on personal schedules) and we all rely on Ann's expert skills and knowledge to assure wonderful trips. We all know that if we need her advice during the trip, she is but a call, text, or email away.

Not the honeymoon spot they say it is

By: Kho


Reviewed on: 29 Oct 2014

Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana was not the honeymoon spot that the reviews and Dreams' website depicted. We did lots of research before we decided on this property. We read articles on various websites and also the Dreams website. They all depicted beautiful palm covered beaches with couples walking hand and hand. They don't show the hoards of kids running around, inflatable jumper and batting cages on the beach. If you are looking for a romantic honeymoon destination then stay somewhere else.

Ann not only helped but went out of her way to accomadate our group of 12.

We had a family trip planned for Christmas for a group of 12 to Disney World. Some of us were flying locally while others were flying from a different city. She helped us stay on budget by suggesting different motels and also helped us decide on the best meal plan for our group. Everything was arranged for us and basically all we had to do was show up at the airport. It was a wonderful trip and one our family will have in their memories for a long time. This is the 3rd trip she has helped us plan and we will definitely use her again.

aA Lovely Time in London

By: Mind The Gap


Reviewed on: 01 Jul 2015

All was well, a very good Bucket List Trip to London, The Delta Flight to Atlanta on the way out was diverted due to weather, so we missed our original flight to Heathrow & barley made the last flight of the day. Unfortunately our luggage did not, it arrived 3 days later. On the return trip, The Delta Connection (Virgin Airbus vs the Delta Boeing) was a much better flight, more leg room, better service by the flight attendants, better food, better movies, etc. As a non-frequent flyer, I could have used a bit more education on the carry on bag rules, we had to "give up" some a few items such as hair spray, shaving cream, lotion, etc. Some items that cleared American customs, did not clear the British customs on the return trip. Go Figure!!. But, all in all a very successful and enjoyable trip, our thanks to Ann & Julie at Creative Travel.

We love Ann, she is wonderful! Just back from our second trip booked with Ann. She made sure that we had a great vacation within our budget. She was very patient with us. We made several changes to our trip, and she never made us feel as if we were a bother to her. Each time we called her, if she was not available, she called us back the same day to see what we needed. She didn't give us just any location, or resort, she made sure it was a safe location, one we would love, and would enjoy our stay no matter the length of time. We are planning early for next year's trip. Ann has already given information we asked for. I highly recommend to everyone, if you are planning a trip call ANN.

The good, the bad and the ugly!

Reviewed on: 14 Sep 2015

Tour guide Roseann was absolutely fabulous and entertaining and kind supported by Tour Bus Driver Peter who was the best! Fun was had by all! Unfortunately, two hotels were terrible in that night time noise prevented sleep on at least three nights. One night I got food poisoning after eating in the hotel restaurant in Plymouth. And after the first week at least 10 people including me got very, very ill with an upper respiratory infection which prevented me from participating in at least two days activities plus optional excursions. The ride back to London was very long due to coughing all over the bus and one couple had to be treated for pneumonia somewhere in Scotland. So, it was a good trip but I would think another through very thoroughly before going. Maybe a shorter trip next time?

The Riu Palace in Costa Rica was very pretty and clean. The room was stocked with bottled water and sodas. We used the pool area a lot because this place has 500% humidity!! Cost Ricans were friendly and our excursions we booked were great. Especially the Arenal Volcano zipline trip. We didn't know about the zipline right down the road from the Riu and wished we had because it was different and we would have gone there too. The food was OK. They did not have name brand beer and the tea was instant but we mostly drank the bottled water. A whole lot of flies and fruit flies on the buffet items. Ann Winegeart did everything great with our booking and TSA check in. Thank You Ann!

Ann all went well. We ended up cancelling a couple of excursions for Dave and I but they refunded full amount which i wasn't expecting. Also they didn't take reservations for dinner time selection but it turned out ok for we got in everytime we wanted to go. Food was excellent. It was an older ship but clean and all the staff wonderful. We did tip and I hope not too generous. Kim's cake was fresh and elegant. Nice job. At some point I want to talk to you about planning a trip the last of May 2018 to Alaska for the 6 of us. It is on my bucket list. Our grandkids will graduate their respective college programs and other daughter turns 50. We would like to do the cruise and the train, taking 2 weeks or the amount of time needed to do both. When do suggest we start looking and reserving? Again thanks for everything.

We had a terrific seven day vacation in Rome. It couldn't have worked any better. The flights on Delta were on time and the attention given to the special wheelchair requirements were great in Shreveport, Atlanta and in Rome. The hotel selected Hotel LaGriffe, was a great selection. The room was very nice, the hotel had upgraded us to a special room larger than expected, which was very nicely decorated. The staff from the front desk, to guest services to the morning breakfast manager were awesome! I will and have recommended Ann to several friends and look forward to working with her on my next journey!

This was a great experience. It was clear that we were in good, capable hands! She worked with us extensively to figure out the best prices and dates. She sent a nice package that contained all our information in a booklet, along with a lovely map of Rome. Ms. Ann's booklet made it so much easier to manage the different reservations and confirmation numbers. With all the resources online, many of my friends and family asked why we didn't plan the trip ourselves. I gladly tell them about how working with Ms. Ann made me feel calm and prepared for my first trip abroad! All we had to do was show up. Ms. Ann had taken care of everything else.

She booked our flights, set up our shuttle service, and connected us with some great travel insurance. She was extremely helpful and I plan on using her services again in the future.
