My Background

I have had the pleasure of fulfilling travel dreams for my clients since 1986, working with World Travel since 1993.  It is so exciting for me to turn a wish into a fantastic vacation with memories that will last a life time.  My favorite way to explore the world is by cruise ship where I can unpack once and see a lot of diverse places.  If cruising isn't your thing, then I can certainly get you to Tahiti, Australia, Europe, Asia, the United States....just let me know where your wanderlust wants you to go!

I am looking forward to exploring Budapest in the spring of 2016 as my son is getting married there.  I am fortunate my future daughter-in-law's family will be there to be my tour guide.  I will be so excited to share my experiences with you when I return....just give me a call!

a four day cruise over a holiday, we should have known better. it was fun, however so many people trying to get tables for twenty at 5:45 dinner, we should have made reservations. a week on the royal princess a week before Christmas should brighten the mood. thanks judy, all the best

Planning my Hawaii trip with Judy was a great experience. Her extensive knowledge and ability to figure out just what I wanted and how to stay within my budget were awesome. I'l certainly be calling her for my next trip.

Judy did a great job planning our 7-Day cruise on the Royal Caribbean "Oasis of the Seas" which ported in Nassau, Charlotte Amalie & Philipsburg. After the booking, she emailed us numerous times to ask, if we needed anything else just let her know. The  Stateroom with a ocean balcony she selected was on the 10th deck and was perfect. When we got to the stateroom, there was a bottle of iced Champaign waiting for us. We are already planning our next cruise for 2016 and will call Judy to book it for us.       

I would highly recommend Judy to anyone with travel needs.

back at sea

another last minute cruise was managed by judy. we really need to start planning earlier. The only problem was coming home the wide body aircraft from charlotte had to circle and then land at san juan then come to st maarten because there were too many private planes and no room for the big jet on the tarmac.

Judy planned our trip perfectly. Past experience has shown me I can put my faith in her and I won't be disappointed. My husband and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary and took the Princess 12 day Grand Mediterranean. The cruise and flights were great.

another excellent trip

No problems at all, had great flights, great location of hotel, really good food in San Francisco and a very nice cruise. Recommend Capo's Italian Pizza in North Beach. Saw it on the California Bountiful TV show and it was the nicest small place with cracker thin pizza and 3 sizes of wine, just right.

Judy was very knowledgeable and provided excellent recommendations. She truly helped me plan a perfect one week vacation to Europe. She was able to answer all my questions. And if she didn't know the answer, she went the extra step to call some of her contacts to find the information I wanted. She was prompt in answering emails and worked really hard at her job.

Expert Travel Problem Solving from an AMAZING Travel Goddess.

Yes, we as consumers can look on various internet travel sites, look at a million different flight situations, feel like we're getting the best deal, but reality is, Judy has a network of endless & pertinent information, as well as decades (yes, decades) of experience. All of that makes an ENORMOUS difference when you've got a complicated agenda, or complicated (though they shouldn't be) destinations. With her, you don't have to go through some insanely frustrating telephone tree; you have the ability to speak to a REAL person who puts you as her number-one priority. Countless times, I have been able to rely upon her for honest, straightforward information on travel scenarios. She's been able to look at several flight possibilities, has access to information that many web portals simply don't have, and can give you the skinny to help you make the best choice for your needs. Not only that, if you're looking for a cruise option, she's got you covered! I can't recommend her enough!

Judy did a wonderful job helping my husband and I plan our trip to celebrate our anniversary. It is challenging to think through all the details when planning a trip while managing your daily life so it was great having Judy do our thinking for us and giving us all the information we needed to travel internationally. I loved having the oeace of mind that someone else was looking out for us and that we had a travel expert on our side.

Fabulous Trip!

Our Alaskan Cruise booked by Judy at World Travel was fabulous!! Judy took care of everything for us. This was definitely one of the best vacations ever. Everything went like clock work. It was amazing -- we were greeted at the airport by the Princess representatives, caught the shuttle bus to the ship, boarded, got into our balcony cabin (which was awesome) and had lunch at the buffet by about 3:00!! This was our first cruise and the Princess line probably spoiled us for life. The food, service, entertainment -- everything was the best of the best. You truly felt super pampered!! Then you have the beauty of the cruise itself -- Alaska is breathtaking!! We saw Orcas and bald eagles on our Juneau whale watching excursion, and Glacier Bay was amazing. We really did not want to get off the ship. When we did however, everything went like clock work once again to get back to the airport. We highly recommend this trip, and Judy Erskine to book it for you :)).

Great Vacation

Our trip arranged by Judy Erskine and World Travel Bureau was great. From the start when we were picked up by our driver to the time we were delivered home at the conclusion of our trip, it was amazing. Judy and World Travel Bureau are truly experts at organizing a worry free vacation. Our time in Panama was a wonderful experience. Thanks, we'll call you when its time for our next trip.

air travel vs cruise

By: jim L

Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2016

The cruise was exceptional as usual even taking into consideration a minor amount of rain and not being able to go to Monte Carlo. The issues were with the air flights (see e-mail sent by travel agent to Oceania representative) and the late notice that one of our selected paid tours was cancelled at the last moment when I believe the determination of non-participation numbers was available prior to boarding.

this was our 59th cruise arranged by Judy. we have also had her do other trips over the years. it is very comforting to just mention when and where we want to go and all the details fall into place. we just spent an evening with her and her husband catching up and sharing experiences, this is a trusted relationship developed over the years.

celebrity encounter

By: sueandfred

Reviewed on: 23 Jul 2017

Judy is always up for something new, this was a second stab at celebrity. As with anything you are not used to, this was more complex that a routine Princess cruise. But with lots of help from Judy we broke the RCI code and had a very different cruise. However, after cruising from a local east coast port sometimes i think we should just stay on the west coast with Princess and not have to deal with the east coast language.

Judy has been with us or we with her for 61 cruises and many other excursions. We don't take long because she knows us so well. We have taken her advice on some things but have said yea, but were going to do it this way anyway. And sometimes we should have listened. Judy knows best! This cruise we wanted to go just to go, and we paid for it, with 712 children under 18 on a ship with one deck (450 passengers) more than the original design. We knew better, but oh well.

Regal Princess

By: fred&Sue

Reviewed on: 15 Jan 2018

Judy was on top of everything as always. When she notified us that JetBlue had rescheduled the flight back to an earlier time we changed to the evening flight. With a crew delay from Boston and then a heart attack on board and an emergency stop in New Mexico we really were late. Sue only had less than 3 hours sleep, but thats the life of a school bus driver that takes vacations. We thanked the crew as many others at the Ft Lauderdale airport were not getting out that evening.
