My Background

I have been in the travel industry since 1978.  Over the years I have experience from large corporate travel to luxury leisure travel and everything in between.  At this point in my career I spend a large part of my time booking international travel and cruises, customized tours.  Air tickets are still a valuable part of our business at The Travel Group.  On line travel is available to everyone, but our clients are looking for personal service and expertise in travel planning.  I am a co-owner of The Travel Group with my partners, Susie Cummings and Linda Overend.

October 2103 Trip to London, Florence and Paris

By: Bill H

Reviewed on: 19 Nov 2013

Sara is wonderful. She handles all of my tough issues like how to use my frequent flyer miles and how to get between the various airports and countries and over the Pond both ways. She know the hotels and the locales and she always gets me the Virtuoso amenities. She even reminds the hotels of those before I arrive. More than that she really cares about my wife and I, and has developed a great knowledge of what we will enjoy. I will never use anyone else to help us.

Once in a lifetime-Baltic Cruise

By: Carnac

Reviewed on: 20 Nov 2013

Sarah's experience, expertise and resources made our two week Baltic Cruise with Oceanic Cruises, from Stockholm to London a trip to remember. Everyday was a new adventure. Her idea of using miles to upgrade to Business Class were miles well spent.

Wonderful and Surprising

By: Zizzer 59

Reviewed on: 19 Nov 2013

Trip was a real surprise. Starting with Iceland. We had no idea that this frozen wilderness island could be so beautiful. The Scandinavian countries were rewarding. Norway is a country intent on taking care of its citizens by spending some on their national wealth (oil) on benefits for all. The Baltic's were as advertised. All in all a great trip and well organized by our travel agent.

Highly Recommend the Travel Group

By: Europe Traveler

Reviewed on: 19 Nov 2013

The planning process by Mrs. Krutsinger in conjunction with Virtuoso was perfect again. This is the 3rd time in 3 years we have used this Travel agency and the trips to Australia, Italy and now Paris/Amsterdam were planned perfectly. I did not have any adverse surprises and everything from the hotel upgrades to the guided tours was great. We are planning our next trip to Spain and we know we are in good hands! Thanks Sara!!!

Sara listened to what we were interested in doing for a family trip including adult children, who live out of the area.She really helped us coordinate flights from various points of origin. Sara provided an appropriate amount of reading material, gentle advice, etc and allowed us to review and decide on a plan. We are pleased with resulting plan for a family trip to Hawaii.

From Barcelona to Athens

Reviewed on: 08 May 2014

We just returned from a wonderful trip on Oceania's ship the Riviera.  It was a fun packed ten days.  We began in Barcelona and sailed to Athens with stops in between.  The ship was just impeccable, the food superb, and  the service unusually attentive.  I would recommend this trip to anyone to relax or to be as busy as you would like.  There were so many activities on board that you could be active all the time.  Sara Krutsinger was the agent that planned our trip and answered all our questions ahead of time.  She was just fantastic!  Her suggestions were invaluable!  We truly enjoyed the trip.

You made our trip wonderful.

By: Patti

Reviewed on: 16 Mar 2015

Sara, our accommodations were perfect and the food was excellent. The lines were long and the most discouraging thing was the time it took to see the major attractions. We finally split up and found the "Fast Pass". Still it would take 45 min to an hour to get in most of the major rides. John was was satisfied with the train, steamboat and other things that were not so busy. He loved getting all the character souvenirs. Helen had your hands full, literally, going home. Chloe and John enjoyed the pool almost more than anything. The pool at the Contemporary was closed and they shuttled us to the Grand Floridian pools, which were the ultimate pools. So, thank you, thank you for planning a lifetime memory. Patti
