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!

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!

She was quick and easy. Like working with her. She's very efficient. Noticed not enough time at layover in Seattle so rebooked that flight, otherwise everything went smoothly.

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.

always eager to help and very dextrous with choices

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

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 worked diligently to compile everything I requested for our family vacation. She responded / communicated within a timely manner and I would definitely use her in the future to book our next vacation.

After she got my money, I never heard from her again

Here is an excerpt from the email I sent to Mary Marlowe TWICE after we got back from our trip. I never got any response whatsoever. "Where we really ran into problems was in Prague with the City Pass. We went directly from the train station to the Gray Line kiosk to redeem it, but no one was there at 2:00 in the afternoon. Even if she had been, it wouldn’t have mattered, because the date on the voucher said the 26th instead of the 25th, so we lost an entire afternoon and evening of sightseeing. We went back the next morning to the kiosk to redeem the voucher and got a bus to the Prague Castle, but it was only a 1-way bus: we were on our own for getting back to town. Also, even though the Pass book said the card was good for entry to all attractions on the Castle grounds with NO WAITING IN LONG LINES, no one there would accept the Pass; they just kept directing us to the long lines to buy tickets."

GREAT advisor, especially on guides but also on destinations

Mary has been an amazing agent, finding the best locations and great guides, from out-of-the-way places like Rarotonga to tourist areas like Maui to wider travels from Istanbul to Nepal. I definitely recommend her!
