My Background

My career in travel began in the early '90's. After 5 years as a travel agent, I took off with my Air Force husband to explore the world. We were fortunate to have lived in Guam, Alaska, Mississippi and Germany. After 10 years of service and many exciting travel experiences, we moved back to the States. My favorite part of this job is helping people make their travel dreams a reality.

Hotels well positioned for excursions we wanted, we were kept informed of scheduling and provided full details including when and who to contact when necessary. Was willing to suggest assistance outside of her firm if she felt it would be beneficial. Overall, well planned and no details omitted.

I have planned 2 trips with Ms. Sanner and they have been absolutely perfect. I just went in and told her what I wanted and she made it happen. She even gave me different options and pricing so I could compare. Very professional and works to make sure you have that perfect vacation.

My husband and I went to Barbara to plan our honeymoon. We were referred to her by my brother who also had a wonderful experience. Barbara listened to exactly what we wanted and worked with us on that. She respected our budget and opinions. Barbara took care of everything! The trip was wonderful! We couldn't have been happier with our trip or our travel agent experience! :)

Barbara has proven to be the best resource in finding affordable travel packages quickly and within my criteria.  She has helped my family on two occasions; both times finding deals that could not have been found easily online. Barbara is quick to respond, thorough, and focuses on finding you the best value.  She will definitely be my first contact for all future travel plans. She is the best!

Unfortunately our trip was cancelled due to cancer surgery.  However, prior to reaching this point Barbara was quick to set up and always prompt in replying to requests for information whether she was in the office or at home.  She has always been willing to meet at our time schedules and works to resolve any request we may have.

"Bucket List Dream" brought to life!

By: Bob14

Our Alaskan Inside Passage trip was so very well planned by Barbara that each moment of each day was a treat. The stateroom was perfectly placed for a quiet trip with a great view from our balcony. The room was very comfortable and our stateroom attendant was always cheerful and timely in his caring for us. The shows each evening were very entertaining. We particularly enjoyed Duncan Tuck ... a phenomenal entertainer. We really enjoyed visiting the quaint little villages at each stop. Another "Bucket List Dream" brought to life by Barbara.

Exceptional Customer Service

By: BarbaraJ.

Reviewed on: 08 May 2015

Barbara is an exceptional travel agent. She did an amazing job helping to create a wonderful itinerary for out trip. She is incredibly thorough and a pleasure to work with. She made so many suggestions that we never thought of - things that made our travel plans the both time and cost-effective. Because we wanted to stay at hotels or B&B's that she was not able to book, she was always open to booking just a portion of our accommodations and travel arrangements. When we had questions that she didn't have an immediate answer for, she would use her resources to find answers to all our questions. We were very confident in any information that she shared with us. My husband and I would never hesitate to recommend Barbara to anyone looking to plan a wonderful vacation abroad. She is a true professional!

She was easy to work with in the planning stages over the phone, kept us up to date with emails and phone calls prior to departure, and followed up after the trip.
