Perfectly planned trip

By: Packing Princess

Reviewed on: 05 Jul 2014

Marion and the Hager's Journeys staff are terrific. Thanks to them, we just completed a stellar Baltic trip that included a Silversea cruise with  3 days in St. Petersburg. Marion highly recommended using a private guide to maximize our short stay in this "packed with things to see" city, and she was absolutely right. Marion organized all of our shore activities in St. Petersburg, including a night at the Mariinsky Theatre for a ballet performance. With the excellent shore provider she suggested (Exeter International), we did not stand in a single line while others waited hours for entrance nor wait one minute for our car and driver, and our guide was delightful and incredibly knowledgeable. I use Hager's Journeys whenever possible for my travel planning and booking and recommend them highly to friends and colleagues.

Marion, We loved our trip to Italy. Such an amazing place! Our tour guide Gianlucca was so good and made it really fun and informative. We would definitely use Trafalga and Hagars Journeys again to plan another trip. Thank you for all your help and service. Arrivederci !!!

We wanted to see some of Switzerland before our main trip to Italy. Marion's suggestion on Chur, Zermatt and the Glacier Express plus the hotels and services to use were excellent. She also coordinated the remainer of our trip to Italy as well. Thanks !

Great Vacation

By: Richard B.

Reviewed on: 19 Jul 2017

We scheduled our first cruise with Regent Seven Seas by using Hager Travel, and specifically, Marion Hager. We have used other travel agents, but our usual agent moved and was not convenient. Since this was a 21 day cruise, with stays both before and after, we felt the need to use an agent and Marion did an excellent job. From her end, it went like clockwork. We did not Know what Virtuoso was, but they provided a number of extra services, including a couple on board who were there to assist. We will definitely use Marion again.
