My Background

After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1989, I began  working for my mother’s travel agency in Greensboro and Charlotte, NC  - and I  haven’t looked back.  With her company I  experienced every side of the business and quickly found “my calling” when  arranging leisure travel.  My work  incorporates all the things I love: Researching new destinations, learning about new cultures, meeting new  people and working with old friends, and putting together the details that make  all the difference in creating special, memorable travel.

My personal travel  experiences have ranged from honeymooning in New Zealand, heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies, safari in Botswana and happily, many trips to both France and  Italy. 

Now that my husband and I have started traveling with our  two sons, my focus has widened and I spend much of my time creating holiday breaks and summer vacations for other families – as well as “get-aways” for the  parents of those families who need time to refresh and renew!

I also enjoy working on honeymoons, and with small groups of  friends who want to travel with a particular interest in mind.

We wanted a warm place well south and had heard of Antigua. Ginny recommended Carlisle Bay as a place for couples and that was a good choice. The place is on a beautiful bay, has a British accent, nice accommodations, and good service. However, very little night life if that is what one wants.

Awesome! Highly Recommend

Ginny helped us plan the anniversary trip of a lifetime to the US and British Virgin Islands.  She took the time to truly understand our interests and custom-designed our trip to fit our specific requests.  From the travel (and transfers) to the accommodations to the activities, Ginny nailed it.  Perfection!!!  Once we were locked-in, we didn't have to think about a thing.  What better way to totally relax?  We'd highly recommend that you turn your next vacation over to Ginny Mabry.

We have worked with Ginny for several years on all our family vacations and trips and have never been disappointed with her assistance in planning out all aspects of our travel.  We will continue to work with Ginny in the future and will always recommend her to any family looking to plan out a seamless trip or vacation.  Ginny has always taken the time to listen to what we are looking to do and the things that each member of our family is interested in seeing and doing and then making sure she incorporates those desires in all the options and suggestions she presents to us as we plan out our vacations.  We have never had any issues while traveling but always know we can track Ginny down at any moment to help us work through any issue that might present itself while on the road.

Ginny is the first travel agent I have used that really "gets it!"  She is kind, helpful, efficient, thorough, and super organized.  She answers any questions before I even know to ask.  Our recent trip was perfect - enjoyed without a single problem.   Ginny not only handled our family, but also handled a complicated group of families - all traveling to the same place but with different arrivals and departures.  Couldn't have done it without her!

Our first experience working with Ginny was a difficult assignment to begin with.  17 members of our family from all over the US would be convening in Normandy for a family celebration and Ginny took the reins.  She coordinated the flights to and from Paris from many US airports, arranged multiple shuttles for getting everyone around, set up an incredible hotel and two day guided tour of Paris for six of the family, including a 7 and 3 year old, that was amazing, and accommodated an 80 and 76 year old on their flights.  To make things more interesting, I personally had to have Ginny cancel part of our already paid-for trip, due to a family issue, and required significant fast work for rebooking 3 airline tickets and moving around hotel dates.  Not a problem, she said, and it was done.  Everyone in our family was very impressed with how she handled this and all will be calling on Ginny again!

We had a great trip. Great weather, sunny most of the time. Loved the land part- Denali National Park. The ship-the Oosterdam was a wonderful experience. Enjoyed the land excursions. Especially liked the train trip to White Pass and the boat excursion to Tracy Arm Fjords and the glaciers. Saw the Sawyer Glacier calving 6 times. Ginny was very professional with arranging our trip. She took care of details, plane flights as well as confirming both flights and the cruise. We were able to handle most of arrangements via e-Mails which I found to be very helpful. I will certainly use her in the future for other travels.

A friend recommended Ginny to us for our trip to Italy. We gave Ginny ideas on where we wanted to visit, a time frame and budget and she came back with a wonderful anniversary trip for us! She booked our hotels, trains, and tickets to destinations, as well as a day tour in the Tuscan wine country. The recommendations of places to visit in our "down" time was awesome - everything we did was within walking distance of our hotels. Recommendations and discounts are given to shops & restaurants too. Lots of great travel tips are included in your final package. We would highly recommend Brownell Travel to friends or anyone planning a trip to Italy in the future! She did such a thorough job with the plans & recommendations. Just wish we had more time to spend in Italy......maybe next time!

Ginny was very efficient, helpful and took care of our large group very easily. Everything went very smoothly. One exception for my son and me and our two other travel partners... Specifically, our travel days were very long, with very very early departure times both ways and long layovers both ways. We discovered too late that we might have had a little more breathing room if we had looked at the schedules more closely ourselves. (That was our fault... We assumed this had been checked out without studying it ourselves...turned it over completely.) As a result,we were exhausted both coming and going...We take responsibility for this but could have used a little more direction and highlighting of the option that was proposed and we accepted. Ginny did a great job....and, we had a wonderful time in Costa Rica thanks to all of her great work and on site info. Would definitely like to work with Ginny again in the future.

Unforgettable trip (for all the RIGHT reasons) to Jackson Hole!

By: KnoxKnits

Our family of five enjoyed a week in early June visiting Jackson Hole, WY with excursions to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. The trip was planned under a tight timeline and every activity and our accommodations were perfectly suited to our needs. We had such a good time on several hikes, a 2 hour trail ride, a full day on the Snake River learning to fly fish, a white water raft trip, and exploring the two nearby national parks. There was plenty of unplanned time for us to discover area attractions on our own which was also very enjoyable. There were no surprises -- our week in Jackson Hole was such a happy time for our family thanks to the expert and professional trip planning of Ginny Mabry and Tamara Horine of National Parks Revealed.

This was our first major trip to Italy - and it was flawless. Every step of the way we were taken care of, by drivers, guides, hotel staff.

Amazing how much more you get from a trip when you have expert advice. Can’t wait to plan our next trip together!!

The trip was awesome and very well planned out. No complaints whatsoever. Accommodations: All hotels were perfect. The Ritz in Madrid is a little tired, probably because the other locations were so new/fresh but the location and "old" feel made it worth while. Staff at Majestic, Riscal and Ritz were terrific...Maria Cristina a little disinterested/stuffy. Transportation: Worked flawlessly throughout the trip and all the drivers were helpful and courteous. Valesa: Very much on top of everything and checked on us a number of times. Adapted our schedule when requested. Guides: All guides were great, and not all the same. Each had interesting qualities and did a great job with their assignment. Information: Well put together package and guide with good info about where we were going etc...very helpful. All in all it was a fantastic trip. Will use Ginny again soon! Peter Bristow

My family's trip to Belize exceeded every expectation. Travel through a third world country could not have been more seamless and flawless, which is a testament to Brownell's planning proficiency as well as to the quality of the Belizian resources that they arranged "on the ground." We will most definitely be using Brownell for future vacations, particularly those involving travel to an unfamiliar country. Time is scarce so having a vacation that is free of stress, mishaps and missed opportunities is priceless. Worth every penny.
