My Background

Cruising has always been my favorite way to travel and I have been on over 60 cruises to various areas of the world. My favorite cruise was with Oceania in the Mediterranean from Venice to Barcelona. I have also done 3 European river cruises. The most luxurious ship I've ever been on is the new Regent Explorer - fabulous!

In 2010 I took my first trip to Kenya and my passion for Africa began. I have since escorted 6 trips with a maximum of 15 passengers to South Africa. Some of those who came wanted to experience more so in 2016 we headed to Victoria Falls, Botswana and Namibia! What a great experience. Going on safari may seem expensive but it's money you will never regret spending. It truly is an experience of lifetime and everyone who has come along with me says it's the best trip they've ever done. One lady said it was the "Highlight of her Life"!

I enjoy putting together small groups and travelling with my clients. I recently escorted a 14 night Uniworld cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam, was pampered on the lovely new Regent Explorer in December for 12 blissful nights in the Caribbean and I'm planning to return in August to enjoy a 10 night Baltic cruise on this wonderful ship.

It would give me great pleasure to assist you with any travel plans you have to anywhere in our beautiful world!

Superior Service

Have been dealing with Barbara for several years and she has consistently given us quality service when booking any of our travels. The most recent was this spring when she found us a very reasonable Caribbean cruise and also made recommendations for hotel and car rentals. She has often been able to search out the best available flights and hotels for our trips and always takes into account our likes and dislikes. Would recommend her to anyone seeking a first-class travel advisor.

Highly Recommend

We have used Barbara to book several cruises for us and all have been perfect. She has arranged before and after trip reservations, including private tours and guides that also have been excellent.

Always delivers.

KLM Flight

Although we were flying in Economy Class on KLM, we were well treated! Our pre-dinner snacks were cashews, and along with a little bottle of red wine we were very happy. The meals were better than a lot of other airlines we have flown on, and the hot bun is a nice touch. Then, we were surprised when they offered us liquors after our dinner! There was also a good choice of movies, so we managed to make it through the plus nine hour flight!

We appreciated all the arrangments that Barb made for us.

Barbara did a great job for us. It was not her fault that the humidity was so high, that it spoiled our vacation. We have already booked our 2nd vacation with her (a cruise this time)! Thanks.
