My Background

As a Senior Travel advisor, I have had the amazing opportunity to experience many destinations, cruise, All Inclusive Luxury resorts, and airlines within the industry. Having experience removes the guess work, and allows myself to make educated decisions with clients, to find their ultimate dream vacations. Passion is key, and my love of travel shows when planning Destination weddings, honeymoons, and Sun escape family vacations.

Travel agent did not provide correct information even after being asked to confirm and reconfirm. Did not schedule flights for the convenience of the customer.

Rachel provided us with the best rates and accomadations for our trip to Punta Cana. If was by far the most enjoyable vacation spot we have visited. We asked Rachel several question when planning our trip including best air fare, trip insurance, accomadations and were more than satified with our itenerary. Thanks again Rachel

Rachel worked really hard to provide us with the best family vacation ever and boy did she deliver. My family and I had so much fun and every thing from the resort to the food and drinks to the travelling was outstanding and well organized.

Another awesome trip planned by Rachel.  Seamless flight connections, smooth check in, no hotel issues.  Would definately use Rachel to book another vacation.

Stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana.  Hotel itself was awesome. Most of the staff were very courteous though for the most part their English was very limited.  The senior waiters in the reservation only restaurants were not very good (not very helpful, and their English only slightly better than the servers).  Having said that though, Carlos, a server in the Mexican restaurant was excellent, as was Miguel, a chef in the Japanese restaurant, who was also excellent.  Here's a tip for the Barcelo Hotel chain:  Even though they pay a premium for multilingual employees, they need to up their game by putting on courses for their employees, in English, French, German and Russian!

exemplary service

We couldn't be more pleased with Rachel's service.  She was efficient and quick and always pleasant.  We appreciated all her hard work to make our family vacation a success. Top notch service.

Rachel knows her customers and arranges travel to suit the individual desires of her customers. She has not let us down and is an excellent travel agent. We hope she will continue to be our travel advisor for  many years in the future.

Very good and very bad

The 'very bad' was the flights on Air Canada Rouge. They cut off the liquor service a third of the way through the flight to the destination. No TV on the plane, no drinks. WTH.

Job well done
