My Background

Vicki Parnell's willingness to try new things has been a hallmark of her 36-year travel career, as she's benefitted time after time from heading into uncharted territory or taking the unbeaten path. 

She's developed a specialization in Western and Eastern  Europe, particularly ocean and river cruising in the region and most recently added New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Vicki is also a participant in the Virtuoso Active and Specialty Travel program where designing active and soft adventure trips is all in a days work. "About a third of my clients are of the adventure type" she says.

Always thinking ahead, Vicki is quick to answer when asked what new opportunity awaits: "Around-the-world tours by private jet is making a comeback. I have some experience with this product and think it should be on everyone's bucket list."

Our group of 20 started with another agent who decided to "dump" us because we asked too many questions (her information was often ambiguous). At that time we: were approx. 2/3 months away from our departure to an overseas location; had placed deposits - altho not everyone had made final payments; had not received any confirmation was turning into a mess! At this point, in steps Miss Vicki with her easy-going personality and attention-to-detail style. She turned what was almost a certain disaster into one of our most memorable vacations yet. Her information was clear and concise, no questions really needed. I know there's a lot of work to be done when starting something from scratch, but I think there's even MORE work to do when you have to take over and make sense of a job that someone else has already started. I am extremely pleased with Vicki and the service she provided our group, and I HIGHLY recommend her to others. I will absolutely use her again.

Vicki has planned multiple trips for us and each one has gone extremely well. She has taken the time to get to know us...our likes, dislikes, interests, and our typical traveling budgets. She uses all this information and helps plan our trips to be the most memorable and enjoyable. She always follows-up when we get back to hear the details in order to help someone else in the future who may want to plan the same trip. We are glad we met her and highly recommend her.

Vicki is a great planner and always covers the little things that we would not have initially considered. She listens and is always responsive.
