Mary Linda was excellent to work with. She made sure every detail (no matter how small) was taken care of in a timely manner. She was also very knowledgeable about our itinerary. We will continue to use her as our travel agent.

Excellent. Mary Linda is a seasoned veteran of the travel industries. She always has everything organized and confirmed from Rooms to meals to tours. One of the best in the business, she has handled ALL my travel for the past 30 years. These trips have included the United States and Hawaii, Caribbean and Europe. She goes beyond most to help me plan tours and activities and she finds the best guides and providers to make it a memorable excursion. We are very fortunate to have her handling all our adventures.

Viking River Cruise from Paris to Normandy

By: Thomas

Reviewed on: 09 Jul 2018

We have used Mary Linda Melnyk as our travel agent for years. She has provided excellent service with every aspect of our travel/vacation experience. We have been able to rest assured that every detail down to the smallest one has been taken care of. She was very gracious in helping us with the travel arrangements and accommodations. On board the ship she was always looking after us and the others in our group to make sure that everything was going smoothly. It was a pleasure to be free of making all the arrangements for ourselves.

Direct Travel with Mary Linda Melnyk

By: Kay Bond

Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2018

It was wonderful! She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and happy. She asked several times if she could do something for us. She arranged to have our clothes laundered, which is the one thing we did ask for before the cruise. She was always arranging dinners so everyone in Viruoso could get to know each other. We met people from all over the world and became good friends before the cruise was over. I can’t say enough good things about MaryLinda because she is so organized in her planning and being proactive.
