A perfectionist in all that she does

Natalie Rael is very kind, friendly and extremely courteous, and gives unbelievable attention to each and every detail of a person's trip. I know that when I travel and Natalie has done all the bookings, I will have absolutely nothing to worry about. She is a perfectionist in all that she does, and the most important thing for her is that I am satisfied and have all my comforts met. I would not go to anyone else for my travels.

Professional, Knowledgeable and Expert Service

Ms. Rael is the consummate travel professional. She promptly responds quickly to all emails and inquiries posed and returns with numerous travels options, exciting opportunities and new adventures. She's always looking forward to see what new promotions cruise lines, hotels and other travel companies are offering and providing to clients. Recently, we traveled on Cunard's Queen Victoria in an unbelievable promotion that involved a Queens Grill Suite. While we rarely cruise on large vessels, due to the numerous volumes of guests, the highlight was the dining experience in the exclusive Queens Grills on Deck 11. Service was exemplary and Ms. Rael ensured we received our requested table for two, each evening. Our return private transport from the pier to the local airport was also expertly arranged by Ms. Rael, amoung other previous travels. At no point throughout our travels did we encounter any issues or problems with arrangements made by Ms. Rael! We are pleased and delighted!

Natalie was a superb travel agent, helping us select the best routes, connections, dates and times and securing the best prices and seats - for a pretty complicated travel itinerary. Natalie is the best - and the sweetest. Lloyd

Natalie did a great job! She was very attentive to our needs. She helped us find good flights at good prices. Our daughter's flights were more challenging but Natalie took the time to find the best travel routes for her too. Everything was perfect!
