I have utilized Robin's travel expertise, both professionally and for leisure for many years. In a word...excellent! Her customer service skills are exceptional, product knowledge outstanding and she's super nice! I have recommended her to family and friends and will continue to rely on her for many years to come!

I do recommend her to my colleages and others.

I have no problem recommending Robin. She has booked every flight I have taken for the past decade. She is attentive, responds quickly to any inquiry I have, is easy to work with and somehow makes things happen even when my friends and colleagues tell me it is impossible. She is one of the finest travel agents (or whatever we call them now) I have found. Filling out this questionnaire was more difficult than dealing with Robin.

Robin has worked extremely hard to meet all requirements for our vacation trips. Our last one to Moscow, the airline mixed up our seating and Robin kept on until she got decent return seats for us. She has excellent contacts for trips and our around the world travels have not had problems. She works very hard for her clients.

Very unhappy with how events of this trip turned out.The trip we booked to Memories at the Grand Bahama Island was changed days before leaving to the Grand Lucayan because the hotel was not ready for occupancy. All the other passengers that we talked to on our plane had travel agents that gave them four options to choose from.1. Cancel with a full refund2. Take the same trip that was booked but at a later date with no price guarantee with what we paid.3. Come on this flight but stay at a hotel of their choosing4. Do as we are told and come to the Grand LucayanUnfortunately Robin gave us no choices at all. I had been very sick for most of December.  I saw the Doctor on Monday but he had no definitive answer as to why I was so sick.. He thought  I could travel so after talking to travel guardian on Wednesday (night before) and buying additonal insurance I decided I would go.  If I had been given the option of cancel with a full refund  I would have.

.........Our trip to the Bahamas was well worth it for what we paid.  Too bad the hotel we were supposed to be in was not open yet although the hotel we stayed in was very good  except not enough to do in the evenings.  Plane coming home did not have ice for drinks or for water. Did not have a movie either for some reason.  Overall was a good holiday.

Robin has been very helpful and organized our trips in full details. Has a very good handle on getting what the customer wants. Has displayed a strong willingness to serve the customer. Robin has always looked for the best deal for us. She goes that extra mile. She has never let us down. We needed some special help in Mediterran cruise and she found and arranged  travel and accomodations at the last moment. It is because of above that we use her for all our travels. We recommend her to all our friends.Wonderful person to work with.

Robin did an excellent job of the travel arrangements for our recent trip. Travel times were convenient for us with no long waits for connections. Robin arranged for us to have assistance between flights when we were worried about the distance from our arrival gate to the connecting departure gate. We appreciate her personal, efficient service.

Robin is excellent to deal with. She worked hard to find us the best price on our cruise and the airfare to get to Florida and home. Robin returns phone calls and emails without delay and that means the very best service. Thank you, Robin, we had a great trip.

Peru - Machu Pichu

By: Ken


Reviewed on: 21 Oct 2015

I found we had a lot of 'free time', partly because our guide and driver had to drive an hour and a half morning and nite to get from Cusco to the Sacred Valley (and then another hour and a half each way on the train from Sacred Valley to Machu Pichu - long days for them but short for us. I also felt he glossed over some of the sites, For example I hinted several times that aI wanted to visit the Sun Temple at Machu Pichu but he went right by it. Finally I went back and did it myself. Service was very good but a driver and guide was sometimes a little much when a simple taxi would have done the trick. We thought all hotels were prepaid but found out upon checking out that they were to be paid upon arrival. A bit of a shock when we hadn't anticipated that extra expense.

Trip to Vietnam and Cambodia

Robin, we enjoyed our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia so much. Every thing was perfect. AMA Waterways was very good. The only thing I think they can improve on if the supper meals. They are not as good as one would expect. Our tours and tour guides were very good and gave us a lot of personal information as well (during the Vietnam war). I would certainly recommend this trip.

I don't want to tell how long I've been dealing with Robin, she would probably hunt me down for giving out strategic information. I've become accustomed to telling her what I need & forgetting about it, & letting her take care of everything. I don't travel as much as I used to, but I still get the personalized attention that I always have. This last trip was no exception & I have expected anything more. Thanks again Robin for another great experience!!
