My Background

Having started in the travel business right out of travel school,  I began my career in 1981.  Most of my career has been in Corporate Travel working with and for major corporations such as SAIC, Chart House Restaurants, and many Executive Coaching Experts.  Two years were spent working aboard cruise ships, as Cruise Director for small ship cruising in Mexico and Alaska,  and then Shore Excursions Manger in the Caribbean and Panama Canal.  I truly enjoy the cruise experience and love to share my expertise. 

 Leisure Travel is also a part of who I am.  Most of my clients are repeat customers, of whom I have developed a great working relationship.  I enjoy planning family travel, tours and cruises for my many valued clients.

The map below just show a few of my trips,  not including Mexico, Panama Canal and  the Caribbean, which are many.

I look forward to developing a working relationship with future clients!

Barbara is the best. You will never find anyone more customer focused or responsive. I've lost track of the number of times I've recommended her to friends, colleagues and clients.

Great trip, great service.

Barbara was very helpful and kept me posted on anything that was required. She took care of a lot of the details for me. I would recommend her highly.

Cabo over New Years

Great trip with the family! Barbara Dobson was, as always, a very professional and great travel agent. Pueblo Bonita Rosa is a lovely resort but lacking in child oriented activities and seems to have not figured out how to have an all inclusive resort and a time share on the same grounds. We felt ignored at times and the staff was always waiting for tips, this was confusing because we were not given a bill only a statement with our room number on it. Winter is a chilly time in Cabo and we had very cool nights and 2 full days of drizzle. Overall the trip was a success and all 13 of us had a wonderful time.
