My Background

My love of Egypt caused me to enter the travel business in 1987. Since that time, I have expanded my sights to the exotic Mediterranean(Jordan, Israel, Turkey, Greece,Morocco). I have escorted small groups to Egypt. My other passion is for the South Pacific. The Cook Islands have drawn me back since my first visit in 1988. This has caused me to explore Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga as well as returning to The Cooks many times.

Awesome travel agent!

By: Thayer

Reviewed on: 12 Oct 2017

Mary is the best! She has gone to bat for me on every aspect of travel over the years. She is always easy to reach and pleasant. She is knowledgeable about air travel, hotels and destinations. Those are my main questions. If there is something she doesn't know, she will find it out right away. She has saved me tons of money on travel and has provided excellent travel resources. She's great!

I've worked with Mary for years. OK, decades. She started when she was 4. She is great!. Not good, GREAT! Really GREAT. I've been in a jam once or twice with missed flights and connections and she was always able to help.

Mary is always enthusiastic and listens to our desires and then helps to either make them occur or comes up with alternatives when things are not quite as we proposed. Flexible and willing None better

Mary was great

We had some very difficult travel needs, different dates for multiple people flying out, etc and Mary handled it all beautifully. She didn't zero in on the most expensive options and found us deals where they were available. Overall, very impressed.

Mary was good at planning and using resources. More important, our group asked for quite a few changes as we were planning and Mary showed considerable patience and helpfulness in adapting to our moving targets. Very professional.

Weekend in Hong Kong

Very helpful. Got it done faster over the phone than via email, but she got me everything I asked for: specific airline, specific hotel, and prearranged ground transportation in HK too. Highly recommend!
