My Background

I started with Ozark Airlines in St. Louis, which lead to my love of travel. I became a travel advisor some years later and have enjoyed my career assisting others in their vacations and meeting/incentive programs.  I really enjoy escorting my groups,meeting people and visiting new places. My bucket list continues to grow and I look forward to each new adventure.

We don't know what we'd do without Pat!! She takes care of everything, and then some! Plus, she is never too busy to answer questions, or find out details of trips. We refer all our family & friends to her -- and will continue to!!!!!

We did a Christmas Market cruise in Europe in early December. Once again, Pat did an amazing job for us. We had some unusual planning, and Pat put it all together. She leaves nothing to chance, but checks and rechecks arrangements. Everything went extremely smoothly, and occurred as anticipated and hoped. We would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a top-notch experience in overseas travel!

The whole holiday was very well planed and the follow up was wonderful.  We had trouble with our luggage on British Airways and Pat was quick to try and solve the problem.  I would not plan any holiday abroad without using Pat.

Pat was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  Did notice, however, that she contacted us late in the game (after reservations were already made) to suggest changing an excursion to another.  Think this should could have been prevented had she reviewed the itinerary sooner. The only pitfall was the airline reservations that were made for my husband and I.  On a six hour flight the seats her agency selected for us were last row, directly across from two bathrooms and in front of another (on a full flight).  Needless to say, was NOT happy with these arrangements.

Our cruise with Celebrity around the British Isles was fabulous! Many thanks to Pat for making all the arrangements for us. Everything went like clockwork. Our post cruise stay in London was wonderful as well. The hotel was posh and lovely. Our car service back to Heathrow was on time and elegant. Thanks Pat! You're the best!

Hi Pat. Great trip! The only issue was the flight from Amsterdam to Basil. You probably heard we missed the conecting flight to basil. I was very disappointed that i was not able to see some of basil. But other than that i really enjoyed the trip. I would book with viking again.

My wife and I just concluded a great trip to Prague and up the Elbe on a river cruise. As always, Pat McKenzie did a fantastic job of planning out not only the main events, but details that made the trip very special. Her attention to the "particulars" makes working with her always an excellent experience.

Pat did her usual amazing job in taking care of us!! When we had questions, she always got answers for us quickly. And she did her best in getting us as best of a flight schedule as possible. We have been lucky enough to have used Pat's services for over 10 years (9 cruises), and hope to continue to do so!!! We have several after cruise issues with Viking, and she is trying to put us in touch with the correct person who can solve our problems.

Caribbean Cruise

By: Cruiser Myrt


Reviewed on: 08 Feb 2015

Pros - professional planning, excellent match of dinner companions, personal attention during cruise, baggage shipped from cabin to home wonderful CONS - one hour between flights in Charlottle airport is not enough time to go to next gate when flying American/United Airways.. Gates are too far apart. Great trip except for flights.

Warm and refreshing

By: Ginny

It was a wonderful cruise. The food and service were outstanding. The ship always offered something to do. Dinner group was fun. Enjoyed seeing Pat and felt like she was nearby if needed. Weather was special and the memory of it even more so after coming home to cold , rainy days. The valet baggage program was a bonus as it worked as stated. Air travel was iffy as the plane from Miami was overbooked and late leaving so that meant a quick trip through Charlotte. Airline help in the terminals was less than helpful . All in all it was a great trip.

Great Carribean Holiday with our Grandson

Reviewed on: 06 Mar 2015

Our assistant waiter and cabin steward on the Independence of the Seas were the best we have had in over 25 cruises. Shore excursions offered by Royal Crib did not meet expectations created by the descriptions offered by the Line. Ship food and activities met our expectations. Pat at Crossroads was great as has always been the case.

As usual, Pat McKenzie did a great job for us. We had a fine experience on the Pearl Mist ship. the size was perfect, and the amenities and condition of the ship were great. The crew was excellent - that is always a very critical aspect for any trip. The itinerary was well planned, and good port stops. The food was some of the best we have had. We would recommend you work with Pat to take this trip.

Great trip! Saw a lot, met very nice people, had wonderful weather and enjoyed the whole trip. Our guide and driver were good. The CIE program could have been better, switching some sites for others, but overall it was very well done. We are looking forward to having Pat help us plan another trip.

Pat did every thing just perfect as always. GLOBUS did as well. Beyond our expectations-the best organized tour director, bus driver and the group of travelers ever. We will possibly be disappointed on our next bus trip with GLOBUS. We recommend this trip and company for any one that wants to see the great Our Great National Parks and the west. Especially the GRAND CANYON. All I have to say was WOW every day. Bob

Wonder Service

We had a wonderful trip organized by Pat at Crossroads Travel on the Oasis of the Seas ship. Seven great days. Our only complaint is that is was too short ;) Pat is always attentive to ensure you have everything you need. The cruise, 7 night Caribbean with 3 stops, was really nice. The ship, Oasis, is amazing, lots to do and see. You really don't even have to leave the ship. Rock climbing, theatres, ice rink, amazing restaurants and my favourite was central park. Yes the ship has a wonderful park right in the middle of it, complete with chirping birds by day and crickets at night. Thanks to all the staff at Crossroads Travel for making it happen.

Our trip to Italy this past May/June was really good! If I had any disappointments it may have been the very first hotel we stayed in on the Amalfi Coast. The food was a disappointment! The accommodations were good everywhere we went, bus was fine, people were fine--we all go along well! When meals were included at the hotel we stayed in, the food was not as good as we got in the restaurants.

Had a great trip with only one small snag. When I got to Tampa on return from cruise the hotel had separate rooms booked for my wife and I was not able to cancel the extra room. I was charged twice for the room on my invoice from Crossroads Travel. I have emailed Pat but have not heard back from her so that is a bit disappointing. I of course used a credit card so I can deny the entire cruise payment but that is not my desire. I do insist on a credit for the extra room.
