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!

Best Travel Agent!!

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

By: Sandybelle28

Reviewed on: 15 Jan 2017

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.

Bob is an excellent travel agent. He consistently has been Bob consistently has recommended the best flights at the best price for my family. He suggested we consider a ticket upgrade on the flights for our trip to Italy but which would afford my family much more comfortable seating for the very long flight for only a slightly higher cost. My entire family were all very happy to have these upgraded seats! He consistently has recommended quality tours for my family to take. Out absolute favorite was the Rhine river cruise! My entire family gives Bob the maximum 5 stars endorsement!
