My Background

I joined Columbus Travel in 1988 specializing in luxury cruises, unique customized travel experiences and memorable honeymoons.

Whether Shark diving off the coast of Africa, touring the French Wine Country or relaxing in the Caribbean, I can take care of every detail. I will ensure a well organized and detailed itinerary to ensure the most enriching travel journeys.

After 30 years in the travel industry, my greatest reward is having clients share their experiences and creating long lasting relationships. I have developed a high level of trust with each and every customer and would love to help you plan your trip of a lifetime!

Frances has booked all our travel for the last 10 years.  After our first travel booking, she has asked us several questions about each trip and at our insistence has taken the reigns from that point forward.  We have never been disappointed and will continue to call Frances for any travel.

France Trip

Frances, We had a marvelous time in France!! Flying in coach with the economy comfort seats were great. The extra inches gave us plenty of room, and it also puts you in the front rows of coach! La Mirande was incredible, and we would stay there again. Moreover, the restaurants you reserved for us were fabulous. Great job!! Many thanks for everything~

What a trip! Thank you Frances! I can't tell you how happy we were that you arranged our trip! The guides, hotels, and transfers were fabulous! So glad you knew who and where we should go! Thanks for going the extra mile and giving us our personnel itinerary in such a neat and easy packet! Ireland and England will never be the same...and neither will we!

Fabulous as always. Only kink was dinner Sat night at Sugar Mill was very VERY slow. They have totally redone whole place so it is beautiful, but much bigger. Hadn't been reopened long and I think they were unprepared for a busy night. Food was excellent though. Husband complained and we got some nice wine the next night. P

We enjoyed a well planned trip to Santa Fe. Loved our hotel, The Inn of the Anasazi! It was quite convenient to museums, chapels, lunch dining, etc. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and friendly. We have used Frances for over 20 years and have always enjoyed her attention to our travel requests.

Italy, Amalfi and Tuscany

By: AJ

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2017

Francis was beyond helpful and with her help planned a great trip. We started late, only a month and she made it all happen. We have never used a travel agent since we really enjoy the planning but we needed professional help this time. The lodging sh chose was perfect with impeccable service and accommodations and a good price. We had driver for Amalfi at her suggestion which was a good call and we rented a car for the Tuscany part of the trip. All went smoothly and we enjoyed all the people involved. The rental car went smoothly. The GPS was invaluable. I enjoy figuring this out but getting out of Rome with a manual transmission without the GPS would have been challenging. I have driven in England and France and I speak enough French to help but no Italian. The hotels where we stayed were Residence Luce in Amalfi and Castle De Nero south of Florence near Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and San Gimignano. Perfect location for our plans. We drove easily to all surrounding villages. Great trip.

She answered every question we had and was very thorough with information and instructions. Our trip was fantastic and there were no unexpected glitches.
