Awesome Help

By: gtyson

Reviewed on: 08 Jun 2016

Kim was a wonderful help on our trip to Alaska!! I tried to schedule our trip on online; but i could not put together everything we wanted to do the way she did. We had a great time thanks to her. Her expertise comes from her living in Alaska and her knowledge of the use of plane, train, and auto was perfect for us. We were able to take in a river cruise; nat'l park, dinner theater & a riverboat cruise along with some of her favorite eating spots. :) We loved the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks with another stop in Denali. Wonderful trip for us!! Thanks again Kim.

Kim was the best when I got back to the airport to catch the Bus to take us to the ship we found out we were in the wrong place. I called Kim and she took care of us very fast. we made it to the ship on time and had the best time of my life. Kim was on top of all our needs form start to finish.

Was great help in booking the whole trip and making it easy to leave town with no planning on our end. Planning with our busy schedules would have been impossible and not nearly as well done. Would definitely go through Kim again for related trips!

I don't know because I thought that our trip was planned by Cindy Turner.

Alaska Cruise

By: Suzie

Reviewed on: 13 Jun 2017

She was very helpful and also went further to get us off shore tours to work with our schedule of the ship being in port. We would have never found these tours on our own. This was our first cruise and Kim booked us on Princess Cruises and it was perfect for our age. Kim also suggested the right dinner for us. We loved the 5:30 dinning in our restaurant and loved having the same people there whom we loved getting to know.

Costa del Sol Family Vacation

By: Elaine

Reviewed on: 05 Jun 2018

Kim was the second agent (also second agency) we used to put together a family vacation in Spain. She was very friendly and anxious to help us with our personalized vacation. She arranged air travel, rental vehicles, navigation systems and accommodations for us. Accommodations were outstanding although we didn't receive address of key pickup until the day before we departed, rentals vehicles were satisfactory but USB ports did not work. navigation systems appeared to be a little outdated requiring us to use our phones occasionally to find points of interest. I found airline seating policy horrendous with no aisle seating allowed without spending $150 per person to upgrade. I felt Kim should have known the seating policy better. I felt Kim should have made contact a little more often although she responded quickly to my inquiries. I would recommend Kim to anyone who needs an agent but will continue making my own arrangements whenever possible.

Kim helped me fight to get my full credit and a cancelled flight, as Delta had originally promised, when their story changed. After many calls she tracked down the right folks and got my original payment credited back to me! Thanks Kim for taking this on and winning the battle for me! pd

To Europe and Beyond!

By: Crazy Traveler

Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2018

Kim did a fabulous job planning our trip. I wanted a very specific trip that was not a standard package. She did it! I had visited Europe 40 years ago and wanted to relive that trip with my husband. She planned all the usual great places to see and visit, but also planned all of our train and ferry transportation to get us to other countries for personal side trips to meet up with friends and family. She also added in time for a Scorpion concert that my husband wanted and a Harry Potter tour that I wanted. When we got stuck on a train in the Alps for 15 hours, Kim was there by personal texting and phone calls to make sure we were okay and safe, and contacted our hotel and pick-up driver to let them know that we were still coming, but would be very late. When we got home, she helped with the insurance reimbursement. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone who wants to travel. She will bend over backwards to make a vacation, YOUR vacation, not a prepackaged deal.

Kim did a great job putting together my flights, rental car and hotel info for a last minute trip when all of these things were difficult to come by. It was great being able to turn these details over to her and concentrate on other issues. I have worked with her on other trips and she does a great job!

Travel agent review

By: Firsttimetravelagentgirl

Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2018

I would because ultimately I got exactly what I asked for I felt there was a bit of disorganization though Emails weren’t always returned and specific questions left unanswered Since this was my first time using a travel agent I know I asked a ton of questions though Overall the trip was fantastic! All the travel was good including the recommendation to take first class trains from city to city. Hotels were great but I felt I may have paid a bit much for the one in Florence and Venice based on the atmosphere but they were great. The hotel in Bologna was terrible. The location and the hotel weren’t great; felt unsafe walking there. The only saving grace was the balcony and breakfast. One recommendation I have is to watch for longer connections for airports that require customs. We almost missed two flights because of those lines. Again- we were very satisfied and enjoyed our trip greatly.

Involved Trip Requiring Much Coordination

By: Mary

It was great working with Kim. She organized the trip very well, and eventually answered all my questions. She sometimes had to wait for her European counterpart (agent) to get back with her with answers. I would recommend her for group trips.

Kim was incredible from start to finish! My husband and I gave Kim our wish list and a budget - she went straight to work putting together the most incredible trip to the Greek islands. Everything from flights to transfers were spot on and without issue. The accommodations were fantastic and everything was put together so there wasn’t a question about what came next. We had the time of our lives! Thanks to Kim Johnson! We will be back...again and again! :)

Carribean Cruise

Kim worked with my family to find a cruise that would fit the time frame we needed over winter break and within our budget. She researched several scenarios and provided the pros & cons of each trip. Then prior to the cruise we met briefly where she provided all the tickets, transportation information, and overall summary. Everything went extremely well and less work than me searching the internet and trying to arrange everything, Thank you,

Great trip
