Always great service!

Stephanie arranged our flights to Cabo, Mexico City, and back to Rochester. She notified us promptly when the flights changed. We ended up having to change airlines and connecting cities. All was accomplished easily and professionally from our viewpoint. Thank you, Stephanie!

This was a beautifully planned and wonderful trip. Stephanie was always extraordinarily friendly and helpful and professional. She knew the ins and outs and it seemed like nothing was too much for her to do. She coordinated with our hotel and tour guides and the barge so that our travel seemed seamless. Thank you Stephanie!

Over the top with Tauck

By: Mary Elaine and Dick

Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2016

This was our first Tauck tour and it will not be our last! Beginning with making our reservation for the Tauck "America's Canyonlands" through DePrez Travel, to learning first hand information from Stephanie about each of the National Parks, to actually experiencing them with our fabulous Tauck Director, Charlie Watson, we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable spite of daily temps of over 100 degrees. Dick and I are spoiled now and will be hard pressed to take anything but a Tauck tour from now on. Our thanks to Stephanie, for all she did to make this trip one of our most memorable.

Trip to Milan and Lake Como

By: Jan

Reviewed on: 19 Sep 2017

Working with Stephanie is always wonderful! She provides all the information I request in an efficient and timely manner. She also shares her insights based on her own travel experience and feedback from other clients who may have recently travelled the same path. This is a reason to use a travel professional instead of thinking one can do it all alone. I also feel a sense of security knowing that I have someone to call if I get into a jam with flights, hotels, etc. I highly recommend Stephanie to my friends and clients who are planning to travel.

She tries to accommodate. Sometimes things are may be not quite what we expected as our hotel in Dinan which was third rate and while she said France was well traveled at that time of year, the line to get into Versailles was at least 500 people strong! We did not bother........

Terrific - Stephanie is incredibly knowledgeable, particularly because she herself has travelled extensively. She ascertains client interests and offers lots of tailored alternatives, not only for the trip itself but also for non-essential but helpful supports. I would recommend her without hesitation.

a marvelous advisor

Stephanie Whitaker was a fabulous advisor. She helped us plan this trip which was to culminate in a stay at a first class resort. There were to be many different modes of transportation and multiple hotel stays. Stephanie worked to make sure that everything was prepared for us. Unfortunately we had to cancel the trip due to a sudden illness. Again, Stephanie assisted us with the cancellation of the trip and with the travel insurance papers. She is a dedicated and conscientious travel agent.

UnCruise Cruise - Columbia River

Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2018

Stephanie has arranged other trips for us which is why we went to her when we decided to take a trip up the Columbia River Ala Lewis and Clark. She is always thorough in making arrangements and keeps us well informed about any changes. We will continue to use her services as we consider future trips. She is by far the best travel advisor we've ever had.
