My Background

I was born and raised in Southern Germany.

“Growing up it was not unusual to spend weekends in neighboring countries like France,Austria, Switzerland and Italy. I was exposed to different cultures, lifestyles and food from an early age. During High School I spent some time in England as an exchange student to further my language studies."

After graduating from High School and Business College, I joined Hapag Lloyd Travel Group and completed a 2 1/2 year apprenticeship as a Certified Travel Counselor. I moved to Maryland in 1980 and continued my career as a travel consultant.

My travels have taken me to many countries in Europe, Egypt and South Africa. I have also visited many Caribbean Islands and Mexico by cruise and resort stay. I am an Accredited Cruise Counsellor and a French Destination Specialist. I hold many specialist and expert certifications and take pride in continuing my education and training by visiting destinations and learning with online courses.

"I started my career when travel was booked by phone and air tickets were written by hand. The travel industry has evolved over the years and with the technology today we have access to booking engines and excellent planning tools to provide great customer service."

"I love working on complex international itineraries and enjoy the challenge of research. My travel experience allows me to plan the dream vacation for my many loyal and new clients.

Have with Alex Bohn for over 35 years, so I am confident in the packages she suggest and her looking into details for the trips my group has shared.

Alex was great to work with on planning the Danube River Cruise. As this was our first such trip, having someone to “hold our hand” was a great asset.

I have worked with Alex for years. She is an excellent travel agent. Wherever I want to go, she knows how to get me there the way I want. My most recent trip was to Peru with a tour company called Monograms. Alex chose the hotels and managed all the details. Excellent hotels and trip!

Not Recommended

Wouldn't work with her again

By: Anonymous


Reviewed on: 20 Jan 2019

It was often difficult to get a hold of her, as she was on vacation quite a bit leading up to the trip. Sometimes it took a week or more to receive a response. I would have liked someone assigned to me that could answer my questions within a timely manner. In addition to that, I was not notified when my flight time changed and instead noticed the change myself and had to confirm with Alex. It should be her job to let me know of any changes. The night before the flight, I double-checked the airport's website to ensure the flight time was still correct, and to my dismay, I noticed that it had again changed, this time four hours earlier. I frantically tried to contact the travel agency for confirmation since Alex was out of office. Unfortunately, no one could work with me aside from my agent. So I arrived at the airport three hours later, exhausted from lack of sleep. On a positive note, I finally made it to my destination and would never have to work with Alex again.

We love our resort!

By: Eribrow


Reviewed on: 23 Jan 2019

This is the first time we use a travel agency and Alexandra was easy to work with and made our experience great. We loved our resort in Mexico and the excursion agency chosen in Mexico. Everyone was so kind and knowledgeable! One thing I wish I would’ve looked more into was the flights. We got connecting flights, which is not what we wanted, but that was on me for not double checking the attachment.

A marvelous New Zealand experience

By: Nick N.


Reviewed on: 12 Mar 2019

Alex understands the details—small and large—that make a trip more comfortable and memorable. From air travel within NZ, rental cars, lodging and exploratory experiences, everything was smooth and hassle-free. And amazing! The last thing any traveler wants is a single snafu that eats up precious vacation time. That never happened in over 3 weeks! Nicely done, Alex!

Honeymoon

Alex provided us many options when we first approached her for ideas for our Honeymoon. She listened to our request and found an amazing place for us in the Dominican Republic that had everything we were looking for and within our price range. She was easy to work with and even assisted us with a minor return travel issue while we were there. She handled everything and we were able to just enjoy our time and celebrate!
