My Background

I believe the opportunity to travel is one of the greatest gifts in a person’s life, and I want to help them get the absolute most from the experience.

That’s why I traded my career in custom dressmaking for a career in travel arranging. While operating my custom studio for many years, I knew the joy of turning the dreams of many brides, prom goers, and pageant contestants into reality, not to mention the satisfaction of restoring worn, but beloved treasures.

For the last fourteen years I have been using that same enthusiasm and attention to detail to make my clients’ travel dreams come true.

There is no one ‘right’ way to travel. The skill is in combining the itinerary, environment, and style of travel that makes each trip perfect for each client, each time they travel.

I love knowing that what I do enriches my clients' lives and provides them with memories they will cherish for years to come.

Feel free to contact me and I will be happy to work with you to bring your travel dreams to life.

The Best Agent in the world!!!!!

By: Salil 2015

Christine Ryan planned the best trip ever! She made my honeymoon the most memorable trip my wife and I have ever been on. She picked the perfect place for us to relax. Zoetry Villa Rolandi was the perfect trip for us! She took care of everything and I mean everything. We got off the plane and walked to a luxury SUV waiting for us with champagne and roses. It was legitimately 5 star service for us. I cannot express to you enough how she listened to what we wanted to do and then created the best vacation that matched our requests. I truly believe that she would have gone on that vacation Bc that is like it was planned. She was great at answering all my questions and she bared with me through some credit card issues. She truly created a magical experience and I have already recommended her to everyone I know who wants to travel!!!! Christine will plan the best trip you have ever been on!!!!

First Time to Jamaica, but Not the Last!

By: John&StephF


Reviewed on: 12 Jul 2016

Wow! Awesome! --Just a couple words to describe our reactions to the amazing trip we took to Jamaica for our honeymoon! Christine Ryan prepared a wonderfully organized trip for us. Our flights were direct, and, upon arriving to Jamaica, we were greeted by a lovely Club Mobay associate, who took us on a fast track, and then escorted us to the Club Mobay Lounge where we enjoyed drinks prior to our shuttle ride to Couples Negril. The shuttle ride was relaxing, and the driver was entertaining. When we arrived to Couples Negril, everything met or exceeded our expectations in terms of accommodations, service, food, water sports, included excursions, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay, and easily returned to the airport with another quality experience at Club Mobay. Any concern we may have had was alleviated by the organized manner in which the trip and transportation were planned. We would love to return to Jamaica, and we would definitely contact World Travel Service in the future!

Great Recommendation for our Honeymoon!

Christine gave us a wonderful recommendation for our honeymoon at the Iberostar Grand in Mexico. We told her our budget and she stuck with it, but we had the best vacation of our lives! We are new to traveling and all-inclusive resorts and Christine answered our many questions patiently and informatively. It was definitely the best bang for our buck! We will be back, thank you Christine!

Our Alaska vacation

By: Jeff


Reviewed on: 22 Jul 2016

The land tour and cruise vacation was exceptional in every respect. The tour excursions, especially the Punchbowl glacier high elevation dogsled camp adventure, were top notch. Princess Cruise lines did a nice job in accommodating its passengers from beginning to end, and the cruise pre-board check in on the Denali to Whittier trip was time saving and hassle-free. The photo ID based security systems in place for boarding and leaving the vessel were impressive and comforting.

Just what we wanted

It was a pleasure to work with Christine. We came in with a vague sense about a large family trip we wanted to take, and she helped create the perfect itinerary. She cheerfully coordinated with three different family groups, and kept everyone informed. She went over everything with us, and we had the best trip. She was patient, courteous and efficient. Thanks!

Exactly what we were looking for!

By: AlexDC


Reviewed on: 16 Nov 2016

Two couples in our late 30s were looking to go on an all-inclusive island resort vacation, and collectively spent more than 40 hours looking up locations, prices, and reviews online. With too many choices and inconsistent information, I suggested giving up on the internet and working with a pro. Through a web search of agents in the DC area I found WorldTravelService and was connected with Christine, and right away the tone for a relaxing and stress-free vacation was set! Christine listened to exactly what we were looking for, from the level of service and accommodations to the vibe that best fit our personalities and vacation style. Our whole experience working with Christine was top notch - she responded to emails and phone calls right away, answered our many, many questions, kept us updated on the status of all bookings and logistics, and checked in with us periodically leading up to the trip. I am totally sold on using Christine and her colleagues for all vacation needs!

Wonder Agent

By: Happy Traveler


Reviewed on: 02 Oct 2017

Christine is a wonder. She takes the time to find out just what you want as a traveler as well as your expectations during your trip. She finds the best options for you whether you are traveling alone or with a group. There is never a push for you to accept on option over another; the choice is always yours. Some how she managed to get my group to all begin and end our trip together. A true feat as we were coming form both coasts of the U.S. Christine is a joy to work with. She has always been pleasant, with a wonderful attitude, and very understanding even when I had to cancel a trip. Christine has planned many of my trips and I would not work with another agent. She has earned my trust and appreciation.

Working with Christine is always a dream. She has a magical way of balancing our loose ideas containing specific desires with the perfect vacation packages. She always takes the time to make sure we understand fees, what our trips include and our itineraries. Christine also always follows up with us once our travel documents arrive, and after our trip to see how things went and what we would do again/do differently. We will continue to go to Christine for our international travel plans.
