My Background

As part of a family with a big travel bug, setting off on adventures is a major component of my life. However, one of my favorite parts of the travel experience is the anticipation and daydreams that we can have before we even leave home while planning a trip. Learning more about a country and culture through developing an itinerary, and subsequently exploring these far-flung places in real life, creates the memories that last a lifetime. I take great pleasure in sharing the stories of my own and my colleagues' travel experiences, and great excitement linking people from all over the world to each other. Each trips knits us together a little bit more as families, friends, spouses, coworkers, visitors, and residents. Jets, planes, trains, boats, ships, cars, bicycles, or even our feet - those are the vehicles for our dreams. It is amazing, that, in a previously unknown destination, we can arrive as strangers and leave as friends – that is the magic of travel.

Nancy Stein is without a doubt the best travel agent I have ever worked with. From securing a choice seat on a plane, to routing through the right connections, to seamlessly coordinating ground transportation, to finding all the greatest sites and restaurants in any city on Earth, Nancy is on top of everything! When you book with Nancy, all that's left to do is relax and enjoy the trip of a lifetime.

We have used Nancy as our travel agent for over 10 years.  She works so very hard to listen to your expectations, price range, etc...and she delivers!  Nancy is delightful and easy to get along with!

Becky @ Aldine Travel does a great job of booking everything I need from airlines, hotels and ground transportation. The connecting times are always the shortest practical and the hotels recommended are usually much better that I would have found on line by myself. Unless I am flying directly to and from a location in the US or elsewhere, I count on Becky to make the best booking available. I always recommend Aldine to friends and colleagues.

Nancy has arranged several vacations for us, and we have never been disappointed. From accommodations to car rentals, airline reservations to guided tours and unique experiences, Nancy has handled all the details. She has made several recommendations over the years, exposing us to destinations that were not even on our radar. We have referred friends to Nancy, and they have been as happy with her service as we have been.

Well done!

I have never met a travel agent more professional or thorough as Nancy Stein. What is amazing, her work never stopped throughout our planning process, till we boarded the airplane, during the trip, until we got home. Nancy had every detailed covered. I never had a moment that I didn't feel Nancy wasn't available to help. I remember an example where my daughter, who was just in college had taken a trip to Europe. She lost her wallet and was in panicked what she should do. I called Nancy, and without a blink of an eye, called a friend of hers in Spain, who drove to where my daughter was staying to give her some cash. Nancy has help me wedding plan in Europe, plan family bike trips in Europe, visit my son in Thailand, and recently help plan a sensational Alaskan Cruise on Silverseas. Nancy and I have worked long enough together where she truly can anticipate everyone of my travel needs, including my wife's desire to have certain pillows in our hotel rooms. She is the best.

Nancy is simply the best. She knows and plans for every detail targeted toward our family needs. She always seems to intuitively be ahead of the process, from the time the idea for a trip manifest itself , through the pre- planning period, during the trip itself, and finally the post trip review, Nancy seems to be always available. There are numerous times she has taken calls on her off- time when the situation warrants it, without making me feel guilty for calling. I can't imagine a better travel agent. I have recommended her to several of my friends. All have been totally satisfied, and better yet, they are still my friends! Thanks Nancy for all you do.

Australia for Xmas

By: carolina46


Reviewed on: 23 Jan 2017

Nancy and her staff are wonderful and caring. My gripe is with United Airlines. I missed my connection in SF to Sydney. It was very hard to re-book because so many people had missed their flights (heavy fog in SF area so many delays). My daughter (in Australia) was most helpful in getting me re-booked, better than United. When I got my MC bill, I have been charged a $100. change fee and $440. extra for my flight. I didn't call Nancy because it was the middle of the night, I called the 800 number and spoke with someone in Denver. She used the info provided by my daughter (new Qantas confirmation number). By the time it was said and done, I had been awake for 24 hours! Also very difficult to find a hotel that will take you at 5am! I have learned two valuable lessons here: 1. Arrive in city one day ahead for an overseas flight you don't want to miss. 2. ALWAYS fly a codeshare. Again I have no gripe with Nancy Stein, her staff is wonderful.

Nancy attends to every detail and more. A great example was when I was running late to catch my plane. There was a knock on my door and there was Nancy with her car running . She knew I would miss my plane if I didn't leave immediately. She took the time to drive me to the airport, I will never forget her for that. Even on family trips, she is always cordial whenever I call and very responsive. She is the best!

Our trip was great. Nancy was helpful and pleasant as usual, and really "stepped up to the plate" to assist us when a fmaily problem arose that necessitated a quick last minute change in air travel arrangements from Europe to the US. She was available and helpfu to usl in assisting our filing of our insurance claim. We'd use her again without hesitation.

A-1 advisor

By: ted


Reviewed on: 28 Aug 2018

Nancy is by far the best trip advisor we could have asked for. Her attention to detail, tailored to our specific needs, are always attended to by Nancy. What is remarkable, is our intuition in guessing problems before they occur. For example, the day she called me to let me know that I was running late for my plane. I told her I was waiting for my ride to pick me up. Five minutes later, there is a car beeping in front of my home. You guessed it! It was Nancy, who was kind enough to drive me to the airport so I wouldn't miss my plane. She has helped me numerous times when I have been away, recommending dinner spots or helping me secure the best hotel rooms. I could not recommend anyone higher than Nancy.
