My wife & I haven't used a travel agent since our honeymoon. A friend talked highly of Betty for years. As we were planning a milestone anniversary, we wanted to make sure it was done right. I first contacted Betty in January 2013 to sketch out the plans for the trip. During the next 13 months, Betty has been extremely helpful in providing options, giving suggestions, answering my multitude of questions and working through all the details. She reached out to one of her many contacts to make sure that our hotel stay was extra special. In the digital age, I can surf, research and make my own travel arrangements. Could I have done all this myself? Yes. Would the trip had been as nice without Betty's expertise? No way! A very positive experience this time and will definitely work with Betty again!

Betty consistently goes the extra mile to plan our wonderful trips. She's attentive to details, creative and always in tune with the latest nuances with the destinations we travel. On our recent vacation to the caribbean, Betty followed thru on many details - like ground transportation, the type of room we selected and activities during the trip. Most importantly, Betty cares about her clients and pulls the rabbit out of the hat to make the planned vacation extra special. Bottom line: she is top notch and as a world traveler , she knows what she talks about. Betty is the best!

Best trip of our life!

There is not a powerful enough adjective that I can think of that describes our trip. It was absolutely outstanding. My recommendation to anyone planning a lengthy trip that involves a lot of traveling and coordinating is to prepare for some prep-work. Betty was very thorough and thoughtful. You should share with her what you are looking for, but be open to her suggestions as she really puts together a magnificent itinerary. Our guides in Tokyo, Bangkok, and Hong Kong were friendly, very prideful of their homeland, knowledgeable, and very caring of our comfort and overall experience. The guides spoke English very well, provided private tours, and had drivers that were incredibly punctual. Our hotels were perfect. Her relationship with the hotels made our honeymoon extra special. My husband and I are so grateful for her help and had such an exceptional vacation. Thank you for everything!

Simply, the Best!
