My Background

My love for travel started as a youngster after riding the Orient Express from Paris to Salzburg each summer alone.  Meeting foreign nationals sparked my interest in different cultures and the desire to explore the world.  I am an Austrian native and love people from all walks of life.  I travel at every opportunity as "having been there and done that" is the best experience to share with my valued clients.

Although my niche is customized European itineraries, I'm a beach bum at heart - Bora Bora being my favorite destination!  I love creating customized itineraries as I treat every travel destination as my own.  Travel is a lot like art, what works for one, may not work for another; therefore, getting the perfect "fit" is exciting.  Making memories is what it's all about!

Expertise, experience and enthusiasm are key to my success.  Embrace your horizon and allow me to create a unique experience with classic flair yet value driven!

Fabulous 60th Birthday Trip

By: Deb

Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2016

This was a dream trip for me to celebrate my 60th birthday in Europe! I knew many of the places I wanted to go, and we explored a couple more. Seven cities in 21 days, starting with Barcelona, working our way thru the French Riviera (with one jaunt inland), and then finally onto the Italian Riviera.. It was Awesome! All the hotels were excellent and in good areas. The train travel was very well planned. We had a couple of minor "issues" to manage during our trip, and Gudrun was easy to access thru WhatsAp. It was so comforting to know she was there and capable of helping when we were far away.

Big Family Trip to Riveria Maya

Gudren was terrific. She was patient and answered the numerous questions we had about our trip. Our family of 7 with three small kids was easily booked and all of the bases covered with Gudren. The trip Gudren prepared for us was hundreds cheaper than the exact same trip booked through the highest rated travel agent in my home town. Even when I had a question or two during our trip she was available to answer them. I cannot wait to book another trip with Gudren!

She did a great job setting up the trip. My friend and I told her we did not necessarily want to be part of the group she booked. When we did our own thing she got very upset with us. We felt forced to join her and her group on a couple of days and didn't enjoy it. Because our first flight was cancelled she rebooked us for the next day. But, she split up my friend and I to different airlines. I was upset. She thought she had to watch over us on the trip. I have been on many trips all over the world and didn't need her guidance. It was like we hurt her feelings. That scenario occurred many times during the trip. In the end at the Amsterdam airport we went ahead of her to check in and when she caught up with us, she yelled "you are on your own! I'm done with you!" Needless to say, we were happy to not speak to her again!

Gudrun is the best!

Gudrun is just the best . She goes out of her way to help you and gets back right away if you have questions or issues. Gudrun is always so up beat and positive and gives you helpful tips on language, customs, currency for the places on the trip. She shows how much she appreciates you with thoughtful cards and welcome on board surprises.

We recently scheduled a week long trip to Mexico through Gudren and everything went off without a hitch. The communication is great, she is very accommodating, friendly and I can’t imagine anyone knowing more about the travel industry than her. This was our second experience with Gudren and we can’t wait for the next one!

It is always a pleasure working with Gudrun. We have worked with her for years and were especially thrilled that she came on this Ramblin' Herd trip. She is soooo fun to travel with. She is knowledgeable and organized. She never gets rattled when handling details for our large group or for us as a couple. We have recommended her many times and many friends have used her to plan their trips. Her follow-up is beyond compare. She gets back with us so fast it is amazing. She helped us out (long distance) when we has issues in Amsterdam. She is a problem solver. She is generous with her time and gifts. We love her!!!

We loved working with Gudrun Vest in planning our recent Danube River Cruise with AMA Waterways which was a wonderful recommendation. She handled all the details including our Travel Insurance and Transfers from the airport to hotel etc. Gudrun responded promptly whenever we had a question and explained everything clearly. The week before our departure, she met with us again and delivered all of the documents and cruise information. She gave us practical suggestions of things to bring and places to see, tips to know while traveling in Europe, sample language phrases for each of the countries we would be visiting, as well as currency exchange information. Everything went smoothly thanks to her careful attention and planning. It makes a difference to have a travel agent who truly cares about her clients and she works hard to make sure that they have a memorable experience. Thank you, Gudrun!

Gudrun is a pleasure to work with. She is our only travel agent and we call her for help no matter where we are travelling. She is flexible and responsive and makes the process very enjoyable. For this particular trip we were celebrating an anniversary, which Gudrun knew about. We had our room upgraded (complementary) due to Gudrun's request, and it was absolutely beautiful. There was also a celebration basket from Gudrun waiting in our room complete with champagne and chocolates. We felt so very pampered. We love working with Gudrun and we are so happy that she is our travel professional.
