live and learn

I don't think this trip is one of Colette's better vacations. The City tour in Paris was just okay. I think Colette had ample time to get tickets into the Louve or one of the other museums. The bus didn't stop anywhere. Hotels were just okay. Nothing special. This involved a lot of walking and France is not exactly handicap friendly. On a scale of 1-5 I would rate this tour a 2. Our guide was terrific. Normandy was great. The perfume factory and wine making tours were just okay nothing special. I prefer to think of this trip as "live and learn". I think Colette could have done a much better job in planning this trip. Do not take this tour unless you are in really good shape and can walk on cobblestones well. I am very glad I got to see Normandy and the various beaches, the cemetery, Also glad I got to ride the TGV. Bus drivers were really good too. Our trip to Washington D>C. was much better.

Our New Year's Eve in Times Square was the anticipated trip of a lifetime. Our travel agent Bob Romano provided us the expert, high quality service that has been the norm over the last 20+ years. With all of the on line and warehouse type of travel options available today, NOTHING BEATS the human, caring, compassionate, "there in case of an emergency" touch. Thanks Bob!

Bob Romano is the best travel agent! I and my entire family have consistently been pleased with they travel arrangements recommended by Bob. We have traveled multiple times to Europe, taking river cruises, as well as guided/escorted trips in Italy. The trips and the airfares he arranged were outstanding. He recently recommended that my daughter, who was traveling alone to Europe, use a luggage service to lessen her having to handle multiple bags on the flights she was taking. This luggage service worked out wonderfully delivering her luggage to her room in Italy the same day she arrived! I highly recommend that you rely on Bob Romano for all your travel plans! MJB

Trip to Ixtapa

Our trip was great. Resort was really nice. People were very friendly. Food was tasty. Room was very nice with an ocean view. Beautiful white sand beach and very family friendly. On the negative: staff speaks very little English and understands less. Service in the restaurants was very slow. Ixtapa is alot less expensive than Cabo. Temperature was very nice and warm. All in all very nice week.

By: Big Red

Bob has been planning trips for my wife and myself for nearly 20 years. He is the complete travel agent. Bob plans every phase of your trip and I mean every phase. He is the consummate travel agent. In short Bob has sent us on many amazing journeys. These were multi country trips to New Zealand, Tahiti, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, Australia (twice), Italy for 3 weeks, Europe in 2014 for 6 weeks and the beautiful Alaskan cruise he booked which included long stays in British Columbia and then Vancouver before the cruise and then Anchorage after we left the Celebrity line. In addition Bob has sent us to the finest accommodations on every one of the Hawaiian Island on more then one occasion. I could never say enough good things about Bob. He is knowledgeable, he listens and he is easy to access. Bob can get you where you want to go anywhere in the world. No matter the destination you will travel in confidence knowing that Bob Romano planned your trip.

Excellent! Bob was able to get me everything I wanted on my trip, including excellent hotels and excellent prices. He went over and beyond the call of duty in dealing with one tour group that had him starting over every time the slightest change was made on their end. I have had Bob Romano book my trips for the past 30+ years. He always gets me into hotels that are far better than I could afford to book on my own! he is also very patient and very helpful in assisting me in designing the exact trip I want.

Bob Romano—Travel Agent

We can’t say enough good things about working with Bob. We have been clients of Bob’s for many years and have referred him to other friends. When Bob is your travel Agent, you don’t need to worry about anything. If a flight is changed, he will work out the issues and get in touch with you to know of the new schedule. His recommendations for hotels and travel, is impeccable. He is a wealth of information and goes the extra mile to make your trip perfect. If he doesn’t have the information you request, he will research and find out about your question. He stays on top of every detail. One time, we were traveling with friends and Bob was contacted that our friends had not completed some paperwork needed for the cruise we were taking. He called me and our friends were able to get the information to the cruise company and therefore go on the cruise as planned. Those are just a few of the experiences we have had with Bob.
