My Background

I have been in this business for over 10 years. The Viking in me has brought me from glaciers and northern lights to sundrenched beaches, up the foothills of the Himalayas, down the canyons of the America’s west, to tiny villages off the beaten path and to many of the world’s biggest cities.

My frequent trips, especially to Europe, have allowed me to keep my in-depth destination knowledge up to date. I have received certification for many destinations, including being a Scandinavia Specialist, a Cruise Baltic Specialist and a designated ScotsAgent by the Tourist Board of Scotland. I am also an Accredited Cruise Counselor.

I have always tried to listen to the particular needs of my clients, and I enjoy the collaborative aspect of the planning process. You can be a solo traveler, a couple, friends going together or a multi generational family. It doesn’t matter. I welcome any opportunity and challenge to help my clients fulfill their dreams and avoid hazards and disappointments.

Always the best

By: Bob

Reviewed on: 27 Mar 2014

I have worked with Britt for several years.  My travel requests are always challenging and often unsettled. At times I am travelling with my extended family, friends and guests.  Britt has coordinated multiple legs on logistically complex trips to the great satisfaction of all.  She handles everything I throw at her. Her knowledge and suggestions are wonderful.  Britt always arranged first class travel experience - whether in Africa, Asia, Australia  or Europe.  Britt, you are my first and only choice, every time.  Next stop:  South America.

Wonderful trip to Barcelona

By: JulieH

Reviewed on: 20 Oct 2014

The Arts Hotel was wonderful in Barcelona! It was a perfect hotel to end our 6 day Backroads bike trip! We loved being on the Mediterranean Sea! The service, room and food were all fabulous! It was a quick cab ride to the Old Town area for dining and night life. We loved walking along the sea and also swimming in it! What fun!

Lowland/Highland holiday

Edinburgh and it's surroundings proved to be as beautiful during the winter festive season as on my previous summer visit. What a lovely, easy to navigate, user-friendly city. The Balmoral is a laid-back, gracious property--my only regret is that I had no time to try the spa--in a central location between the Old Town and the New Town.

Britt did an outstanding job helping me plan my honeymoon and her expertise came in handy for impressing my wife with affordable luxuries I didn't know exited. Britt also made sure we were upgraded when possible and she organized our itinerary in enjoyable digital formats that allowed for easy travel.

Profesional, Friendly and Personal Service

Britt has always been extremely helpful in finding the right trip for our vacation. She is experienced and knowledgeable in all types of tours, land tours as well as cruises. Being an extensive world traveler herself, she can give you updated tips on where are the best places to visit and the best time to do so. I can always count on her to research for the best fares available. Her attention to details is impressive. We recently went on a 7 day Mediterainean cruise with stop overs before and after to Athens and Rome, and had a wonderful time. Britt contacted us at our hotel in Rome the night before our Vatican tour to let us know that there was a slight change of time. It just shows that she always has her clients' best interest in mind. I can truly recommend Britt to anyone who is looking for a fun filled and worry free vacation, anytime, anywhere. She is the best!

Beautiful Resort

By: Lisa's 50th

Reviewed on: 17 Nov 2015

The resort was beautiful. The service was excellent! Specifically by the pool. The entire staff went above and beyond for our large group! The food was amazing. The rooms were beautiful and the view was exceptional. The only thing I would suggest is better lighting in the bathroom. It's too dark! The beach was very sea weedy and the sand in the water was like quick sand. However, the water and sand off of the pier was beautiful. I prefer to be in the main building or close to it, but for our group building 8 was great. I would give the resort a 9 out of 10. Bathrooms were way too dark! Thank you for all of your help. Pam

Perfectly Planned Trip

By: SusanS

Reviewed on: 16 Nov 2015

Britt did an incredible job of making lodging arrangements for our group of 17 attending our friend's 50th bday party at the Nizuc luxury resort in Cancun. Thanks to her, our transportation from the airport was all set as was breakfast, discounts at the spa and goodies in the room each night--all which were included in our room rate. More importantly and impressively, Britt tracked our flights to and from Cancun, and kept us informed, no small feat given the size of our group and that many of us arrived from around the country on different days and at different times. I would highly recommend Britt to anyone who is planning a trip that requires a high degree of coordination and special touches.

My husband was not well and we wanted the whole family and other relatives to come on this trip. It was complicated and there were many balls in the air. I was overwhelmed taking care of my husband so I shunted so much research and paperwork onto Britt. She was our advocate and really seemed to understand what we needed and wanted. She worked tirelessly to make it all work. We had a flawless, beautiful and memorable week's trip, along with 15 others. Now that's amazing. We are very grateful to Britt.

Empathetic and approachable

I was delighted with our experience with Britt Gerber. From our first conversation to our final email, she was sensitive and personal and really made me feel like she cared about our family and situation. She also displayed flexibility, as I changed our family members on her two times. She made sensible practical suggestions (like travel insurance and warm clothing) but was never pushy or overbearing. Britt never showed a hint of annoyance, and did an excellent job accommodating our unique needs. A+ for this lovely woman!

Britt is a true professional. If she doesn't know firsthand about the details of a planned destination, she finds equally talented advisors to help out. Britt helped us plan a complicated, multi-stop trip for two families throughout New Zealand over the winter holidays, which is also summer in New Zealand. This meant that accommodations and excursions were hard to come by. Britt did a fantastic job of finding us great lodging and sightseeing options.

Working with Britt was wonderful. She gave us lots of options and helped us find the trip to best suit our needs. We had a wonderful, beautiful trip and Britt made it so easy. The hotel went above and beyond to help us have a great trip and I know that part of the reason for that was their relationship with Britt.

Knowledgeable Britt

By: Justamy

Reviewed on: 08 Oct 2017

Britt was great to work with- initially she planned a trip that was basically self- guided, including all the things and places we wanted to visit. Sadly, this did not fit our budget ( our fault- we didn't give her a firm number) because the trip would've been perfect. However, she did find a Globus tour that was just right for us. She was right- it was a perfect way to be introduced to Germany, specifically Bavaria. Britt was very accessible, even when she was in Sweden, she'd answer emails and arranged for an associate to take care of our flight reservations. She even answered my frantic emails very early on the day we were to leave. I enjoyed working with Britt- she was polite, patient, knowledgeable, full of suggestions and always responded in a timely manner.
