My Background

I am a proud member of the Travel Industry for over 40 years.

I started my career in Germany and enjoy planning memorable vacations ever since.

I find great pleasure in passing on my knowledge about magnificent hotels, new destinations and places that are still exciting even after the 10th visit.

My clients love the custom itineraries I arrange for them and I love to hear that their trip was fantastic when they return.

Birgit planned another wonderful trip for us to S. Africa through Tauck Tours. This trip was a little more "adventuresome" than others we had taken through Birgit and required some meticulous planning of airplane connections and other details. All went beautifully, and we enjoyed a trip of a lifetime! We trust Birgit to take care of us and steer us in the right directions when planning a trip, and she's always come through. We would - and have - recommend her to family and friends.

Very enjoyable, met expectations but not perfect

By: M/M LS

Reviewed on: 14 Aug 2015

Bath/Cotswold trip was very enjoyable and met our expectations. Suggestions for improvement: 1) No alert was provided on how bad traffic is in the UK. We found one should allocate TWICE the travel time suggested by Google Maps. 2) Excellent Bath guide asked us to pay 16 pounds for admission to the Jane Austen Museum. We did so and only after we got back to our room did we realize we should have told him it was included in the tour cost. He obviously was unaware. 3) Our very competent driver/guide for the Cotswolds showed up with a Volkswagen Passat, saying there was a problem with the normal Mercedes Series E vehicle. While we didn’t complain, we thought it unjustified to be paying for a Mercedes but having to spend the day in a Volkswagen. 4) Going through “Sincerely Paul” is very costly. For a “non-exotic” place like the UK, McCabe should be able to access the types of guides and drivers we had directly, not through a high mark-up middleman like “Sincerely Paul.”

Unexpectedly my wife twisted her ankle and tore a ligament and Birgit called the airline to arrange for a wheelchair at the airport which made transiting the terminal so much easier. The mini-suite Birgit recommended on the ship was in a great location for this cruise, highest deck, a good place to be when we had a couple of rough days on the open sea!

Best Travel Agent Ever

By: Mogenson

Birgit is totally professional, proactive and customer centered. We were referred to Birgit through friends we were traveling with, to help coordinate our travel plans. What a find! While we knew what we wanted to book, Birgit was exceptional in advance planning, communications and as you'll see, troubleshooting. We had a travel interruption that really put her to the test. A snowstorm canceled our initial flight which caused us to miss the ship on a Southeast Asia cruise. Because we had arranged our airline reservations directly, she could not rebook us, but if she could, she would have saved us hours of aggravation. Birgit stayed late in her office to help us determine alternative travel plans (while the airline customer service reps were NOT helpful). On the cruise side, she negotiated our ability to meet the ship at the next landfall, made sure that we had all of the information we needed to coordinate our arrival and kept in constant email communication. Well Done Birgit!

She is the best! Makes great recommendations and takes care of all the planning details. We had a dozen people traveling and she managed to get us a group table on New Years Eve in a very popular and busy resturant. She has booked many trips for us in the past and has already booked a few trips for us in the future.

Our trip to the Antarctic, with pre-Antarctic days in Buenos Aires and post-Antarctic days in Mendoza, Argentina and Santiago, Chile was perfect. Birgit has done so many trips for us, that she knows exactly what we will enjoy. From choosing the perfect cabin on the Explorer to finding a charming boutique hotel in Mendoza and booking the wonderful Ritz Carlton in Santiago, all was just right for us.

Birgit did a wonderful job arranging hotels and our cruise to this beautiful part of the world. She is careful with all the tiny details involved in multi-destination trips such as this and we are confident that she always looks out for our best interests.

We have worked with Birgit for many years, and she has always been a wonderful and dedicated help in the planning of our many trips. In our most recent trip, she had to deal with planning and travel for three generations to Alaska. She smoothed the way through any glitches and helped to make the trip a memorable one for all. On a personal level, Birgit’s a delight to work and talk with, and we look forwarded to working with her in the future.

We have been using Birgit for various vacations for several years and her efforts have been great. The arrangements well thought out and accommodations are excellent. She is also always available if things go south, such as finding good accommodations when an airline cancelled our flight and could not book us on another flight the same day.

Thank you Birgit!

Working with Birgit is always a pleasure. She has been our travel advisor for almost 20 years. I think that says it all. She knows what we like and always has great recommendations for us on hotels, sites to see, day trips etc. Our day trips were both extremely enjoyable. Dream Escape did a wonderful job and our guide was both a pleasure to be with as well as very knowledgable of the Cotswalds and Dover area.
