This is the 2nd request for a review, one of which I tried to submit, but rejected due to spelling errors, I assume, as names of places we visited were included, but not recognized by dictionary. So, I will attempt another review leaving out names of places and cities we visited. We were extremely pleased with World Travel Agent, Linda Rainwater's expertise in making sure all the important details were handled. She gave us information on how to obtain foreign visas and reminded me of deadlines. She printed our itinerary from Gate 1 Travel and presented it to us in a handy folder. She made extra copies for family as well. She printed out our boarding passes, too. She checked in with me to make sure we received our passports and visas before we left. Linda is always right on the mark and made planning our trip fun. We enjoyed our trip to Cambodia, Thailand, Laos & Vietnam immensely. The 16 Day S.E. Asia Gems Gate 1 Travel Discovery tour exceeded our expectations! Thank you

I was first referred to this agency by my brother when he planned his European trip about 2 years ago. I was a little hesitant about going to an agency but I went and I was greeted and assisted by Linda. Linda helped me organize my thoughts, ideas and plans and helped me realize my dream of going to Europe. She saved me much time, mental stress by having researched accommodations, tours, booking flights and trains. She helped prepare and organize the final draft of my European adventure for myself and 4 others. She then came to the rescue as everyone fears to missing their flight and having to rebook. Although, I had an adventure trying to get home, I felt supported knowing Linda had my back as she rebooked another flight (3 in total)! The whole agency I felt was behind her and myself. She helped calm me during the stressful event and I was comforted. She is approachable, friendly, and accommodating. Overall, Amazing. Thank you Linda!

This was our first cruise with Carnival Imagination. The service from beginning to end, the food, the friendly professional staff, and entertainment was first class. Our cabin was kept spotless, and he towel animals on the bed at night was a cute touch. No matter where you went,there was staff asking if you needed anything. The ship itself was "WOW" Beautiful, clean, brass, and marble stair cases, art work, the duty free and tax free stores where you could get some great deals. Thank you Linda for a great job handling our reservation.

I asked Linda to book my wife and I on the best economy plus seats for our LA to Munich flight as my wife and I are both over 6' tall and we cannot afford First or Business Class. She got us a great price and put us in the New British Airways double decker Air Bus plane. Lots of leg room, great food and great service from the crew. Thanks Linda.

Excellent. This is the second time I've used her services, and again, she did not disappoint. In this age of anonymous, vague internet experiences, it is so nice to be able to work with a real person who really cares. The phone at World Travel is always answered by a live person, messages are returned promptly, and Linda just generally inspires a level of confidence in the increasingly fraught realm of travel. Anything can happen once the trip actually starts, but at least the planning and support create a sense of peace of mind.

Finally found a Tremendous Advisor!!

Linda is amazing to work with! Pretty last minute, the family decided to go on a trip abroad before my daughter-in-law and son had their first child. We had a fairly complicated list of places we wanted to visit. First of all, Linda is a great listener, noting our needs and desires for the trip. Secondly, she is knowledgeable and extremely competent. She had options for flights in a flash, hotel accommodations to our specifics, and dining reservations made. I was so impressed by how she put the trip together in such an efficient manner with so many details to handle. She is also a pleasure and delight to work with. All my interactions with her were seamless and so fun as she navigated through issues to make our vacation a dream come true. Linda is truly one of a kind and I can't sing her praises highly enough! Her level of service is truly over the top!

On a pure whim, my husband and I decided to visit Tokyo, since we had never been there. We called Linda 9 days before we wanted to go to see if she could possibly pull something together in that short of a time. In her usual sunny disposition and "gung ho" attitude, she hit the street running. She immediately procured awesome seats on the plane for us, then booked a hotel we requested and made sure they came through with all the Virtuoso amenities. She suggested a day in Kyoto and made the arrangements for passes on the bullet train. Then she set up a guide for our first day in Tokyo and one for our day in Kyoto. We made dinner reservations through the concierge. All of her suggestions for the trip through her past experience there were so helpful and informative. Every day she called and emailed me to put everything for the trip in place. She is such a joy to work with, makes the process so fun, and she has every detail taken care of. Linda did an extraordinary job for us!

Linda is the consummate professional. She is well informed and knowledgeable about travel destinations. When we decided to plan a vacation this year - - we didn't hesitate to call Linda. A few years ago, when we decided to travel internationally, we had a positive experience with Linda and World Travel. She is attentive and listens to you to help you decide on the best travel destination. Once we made a decision, Linda got the information, details and travel requirements quickly meeting all of our expectations. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Our trip was beyond what we expected - - and it was all because of Linda's care and expertise. We can't thank Linda enough!
