My Background

I joined Aladdin Travel in July 2014 after graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill. In my four years at Carolina, I studied journalism and public relations and worked with UNC Sports Marketing. As a travel advisor, I am passionate about the travel experience. My favorite destinations include Italy, the Caribbean, Austria and France. Most recently, my favorite trip was biking through the Loire Valley and visiting Normandy. When I am not planning experiences for clients, I enjoy spending time with family, painting, traveling, shopping and cheering on the Tar Heels.

Very flexible and prompt service

Mary Louise was great to work with on planning our trip. Although she is new to the business she was very helpful and prompt. When she did not have an answer she was quick to get one. They way our trip was planned everything worked out so seamlessly. It was a great experience.

Puerto Rico trip.

Great trip - Las Casitas villas were wonderful in everyway. Food on the resort was not so good. There were better dining options off the resort. Passione was one that was just terrific. Others I spoke with agreed on that. Excursions were great - El Junque Rain Forest, Bacardi tour and old San Juan. Biolumescent Bay was good too, but I recommend the electric boat as opposed to kayaking in the dark. thanks for your help! Mary Beth

Mary Louise did a great job of making our vacation stress-free. She was supportive during the scheduling process, helpful during planning/preparation process, and responsive as questions emerged right before departure. We will definitely use Mary Louise again!

Excellent, Very Helpful

Mary Louise is a great asset for Aladin Travel. She was very knowledgeable and helpful about our needs on our recent trip to Europe. Every question she promptly answered and her Email correspondence was just as fast. We especially enjoyed her recommendations for Paris and Rome.

Mary Louise was wonderful in helping my daughter and me plan a trip first to Italy (which we would up cancelling due to many conflicts at home with timing), and then to England. She was wonderful to work with the travel company who was able to refund all our paid plans in Italy, and put our airline ticket payment toward new tickets to England. She worked with the goals and budget that we had for the trip to find nice accommodations, tours of the areas that we wanted to see, and trains between destinations. It was a wonderful trip, and Mary Louise was very responsive to questions throughout. She was always accessible in the short term, and kept on track on planning with enough advance timing not to rush. I will definitely call her again in the future.

Mary Louise did a fabulous job with all the details. Could not have been a better trip and all the details were taken care of from the beginning. Fabulous trip through the Grand Canyon!

A Great Time Was Had by All

We introduced our 9-year-old grandson to NYC. The only thing that was not perfect was the weather and that did not even slow us down. The Michelangelo Hotel, the plays, the Yankees game and the full day OnBoard tour that Mary Louise helped us arrange were wonderful. We saw everything that we had hoped to see and have a long list of places we want to try on our next trip. Our grandson loved the city, loved the hotel and never once mentioned the rain. We enjoyed seeing the city through young eyes. The entire trip went smoothly. All we had to do was enjoy ourselves.

Very friendly, kind, and accommodating

Good planning, but disappointed in the hotel property

By: Traveler

Reviewed on: 30 Dec 2015

All of our arrangements were very competently handled and the logistics of flights and ground transportation worked smoothly. I was disappointed in the quality of the resort in which we stayed. Room, furnishings, and baths were dated and tired and the food was on the whole just mediocre.

Attentive and personalized work

Mary Louise did an outstanding job planning our trip to NYC last week!! I took my almost 15 yr. old granddaughter for her long awaited trip to the big city!! (It was an award for doing so well in school this year in Asheville!) Our three planes were late leaving, and when we finally arrived there was no gate so we missed our Cruise around Manhattan we had tickets for, but EVERYTHING else went extremely well We had tickets Mary Louise had purchased for us, with isle seats for my long legs, and they all three excellent!! The two restaurants she had made reservations for us were outstanding, as was the Michelangelo Hotel!! I think our favorite time was going up, and looking out over NYC from the One World Tower. Beautiful day and wonderful views!! We are most grateful for EVERYTHING she did for us, including personally bringing our tickets and vouchers to my home!!! I hope she will plan another trip for my family next summer, to cruise Alaska....!!

Excellent Trip to Spain & Paris

By: Lori W

We knew basically what we wanted to see in Barcelona, Madrid & Paris and Mary Louise pulled the trip together for us! Each day was well planned allowing us to go sightseeing but also time to relax. She knew which sites needed reservations, front of the line tickets and when neither was needed. She was monitoring our trip and "saved" us a couple times. I highly recommend Mary Louise!

Mary Louise was such a blessing to work with. I have never traveled overseas before and was concerned I would not get all the arrangements correct. She was very responsive and did a great job looking at all the best options for us. Her hotel recommendation in Edinburgh was awesome. Wish we could have stayed longer. I will definitely utilize her expertise again.

Due to a flight delay, we missed a connection at 10:00 pm in Newark, and were forced to spend the night there. We contacted Mary Louise at 11:00 pm. She answered our call, and arranged for a hotel and for a flight the next day, all before midnight. She is outstanding!

Mary Louise was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was 100% invested in talking through every detail of our honeymoon trip to New Zealand to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. Mary Louise was always available to address our questions and concerns, and she even stayed in contact with us throughout the duration of our honeymoon, which was greatly appreciated. She exceed our expectations, and we will recommend her to all of our friends and family in need of travel planning in the future!

Trip West

Mary Louise was very knowledgeable, professional, patient, understanding, and supportive in arranging our trip and keeping it within our budget. She was prompt and very informative when making suggestions. She placed us in central locations with easy access to venues. We made a 2-week trip to the west that involved 8 different locations including 3 national parks, 3 major cities, and a number of “smaller” stops along the way. It was a pleasure working with her. I would recommend her to anyone. She is top-notch professional.
