My Background

I have been in the travel industry for approximately 23 years and have found perhaps the best part is having satisfied clients return from their travels with nothing but praises, not only for myself or the agency, but for the many connections i.e. Virtuoso, Four Seasons Preferred Partner, Ritz Starz that have helped clients feel truly special on their trips-be it a luxury property, cruise line, safari, etc. Through our varied connections I am able to make things happen such as six tickets for a family this past winter holiday, to a production at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. It is these connections worldwide that can enhance your trip.

I have traveled via cruise and land to Israel, many Caribbean Islands, Europe and Mexico to name a few and have had the privilege of escorting the same company employees to Jamaica and the Riviera Maya area of Cancun. It’s always fun to do honeymoons and multi-generational family trips.

Barbara has assisted my husband and I for our travel needs over the last several years. She has been extremely helpful with our plans and special requests. She is very prompt in answering our calls and any questions we may have. We will continue to work with her in the future.

We have used Barbara for many years and many trips; some simple, some no so much. This year we booked a bike tour in Normandy with Butterfield and Robinson (our 5th B&R trip). Long story short, Barbara found an almost identical Backroads trip a week later. All we had to pay for the change was airline change fee. Great small hotel in Paris before and after. Great guide and car for trip to Giverney. Every detail of trip taken care of.

We have worked with Barbara for years. She is a real professional. She has a lot of experience, and what she doesn't know, she checks with others to find the answer. Barbara is detailed oriented, and has excellent follow through.

If you are planning to take a vacation that you want to be planned perfectly, Barbara Luttenberger is the travel agent you need. There is no detail to trivial for her to consider.Having gone on multi week vacations overseas, I can say it will go without a hitch because Barb has booked it. If there is a hitch the fix is just a phone call away.

Barbara helped us book 10 rooms in a beachfront resort in Kennebunkport for a birthday trip for my wife. Barbara helped to coordinate the rooms plus the birthday dinner all of which were great. A detailed oriented agent who made it easy.

Awesome Service!
