My Background

Excellent Agent

By: Betty52

Reviewed on: 28 Aug 2013

Shelby is a first class travel agent. From our initial contact through our departure, she was attentive, cooperative and thorough. Shelby fully appreciated our desires and our requirements. There were several questions which arose as the departure date approached and she addressed our concerns promptly and efficiently. Her attention to detail is outstanding. Shelby is OUR travel agent; the only one we will call when we plan our next vacation!

This is the 5th time I have written a review. When I get to the prompt to review, which I do I don't get another prompt to send. Shelby is the best travel agent I have ever used.

Shelby is a pleasure to work with....she is knowlegble, conscientious, and cost conscious. She steered us correctly taking a Crystal cruise.

Very good service as usual.

Everything about Crystal is still above average. Only complaint is they now charge if you use the three specialty dining areas more than twice.

My husband and I took a three week vacation to Alaska, Canada and San Francisco in May. In the past we have done tours completely planned by a tour company. This time we dared to venture into unknown territories on our own. Then we decided to go to a vacation seminar and met Shelby. I have to say that she did everything possible to make this another pleasurable trip for us. She had everything planned to our liking minute by minute,and that is no lie. In addition to the typed out daily schedule she had hand written notes to make sure we were always smooth sailing. She made our trip sheer pleasure al the way down to the amenities in our hotel stays. Looking forward to planning the next excursions with Shelby's help. Thank you.

My husband, Craig, and I decided to take my parents on a European vacation and asked Shelby to work her magic and find us a vacation that would be suitable for all activity levels. As usual, Shelby came through with a fabulous trip for us. She booked us on a 10 day Danube River cruise on Scenic Tours. The itinerary was great, the ship was beautiful, crew was exceedingly friendly, and the overall trip was incredible. Shelby is such a thorough agent - staying in contact with us to ensure stress free and easy travel. We are already trying to decide where we want Shelby to take us on our next adventure! Shelby is top notch!

She was very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. She notified us of actions needed to be taken prior to our cruise and called after the cruise to see if everything was acceptable. It was wonderful!

Our fabulous European vacation

By: Paulkopp

Reviewed on: 28 May 2018

What a pleasure Shelby is to work with! She is a consummate travel professional. She helped us with great virtuoso properties both pre and post cruise. She found excellent tour guides at each port. All transfers were on time and easy to find. She kept us up to speed with all flight changes pre trip. She helped us preship a suitcase to meet us in Barcelona with sundry travel items we needed but didn’t want to pack. While in Europe she was able to change travel plans for our son who wanted to spend more time abroad. Her daily itinerary she constructed for us proved invaluable. Shelby has planned many trips for our extended family but this is the first trip I have planned with her. It was PERFECT!!!! We are now planning our next trip with her. I would recommend her to everyone....

Italy and Greece trip

Shelby took a trip of many moving parts - 7 plane legs, 6 hotels, 3 ferries, 4 guided tours (by boat, van and foot) - and brought it all together flawlessly. I literally couldn't have done it without her. We had a great two-week trip, crammed with sights and adventure, and we owe it to Shelby who dogged every detail. She recommended amazing hotels in primo spots. From the very start, she listened to what we wanted and made it happen. She was always available, communicated well and made great suggestions. We went to Positano, Athens and three Greek islands. We wanted to see a lot and it's a trip we'll always remember. Thanks Shelby!
