Elaine has taken care of my travel arraignments for the past several years now and I will use her services again for my 2014 trip to Luxembourg and my stateside trip to Maryland also. She has always gotten me the best flights and connections. In 2011 I broke my ankle in Europe and Elaine changed out my return trip home with no problems and notified the airports to provide me with a wheelchair at each stop. I enjoy working with Elaine.

My experience with Elaine has always been good. That is the reason I keep coming back to her. My recent two trips was no different. On my last trip she called me back saying she had found me a lower rate auto rental and changed my reservation. I did not expect that. Thank you. VIC.

My flight from LAX was changed to a smaller plane. I wound up in a middle seat in row 36. We arrived in Wash. DC 5:30 pm, 10 minutes past my connecting flight. I had to sit in the airport till 3 am and arrived in Harrisburg, PA 3:30 am. My luggage was lost and i had to take a taxi to my hotel. The hotel bus did not work that late. The next morning i called United about my luggage and was transferred to an agent in India. He insisted on getting a full history on me before he would process my request to have my luggage delivered to my hotel. It did not arrive till 11:30 pm. Fortunately, the return trip was OK and on time. VIC.

The trip was most enjoyable. We did some independent exploring before and after the Uniworld cruise from Lyon to Avignon. The cruise was excellent and we were most impressed with Uniworld and the SS Catherine. The rooms, service, food, wine and tours were all first rate and we would not hesitate to travel with them again. Thanks for your help in arranging this Elaine.

My wife and I came to Elaine with no small task: please book us a trip to Greece, on a budget, and we'd like to leave in two weeks. Oh, and we have no idea where we should go or stay. She never hesitated and set up one of the best trips we have ever been on. She was an absolute joy to work with and put up with my daily annoying emails and calls with a zeal. We will definitely be using Elaine in the future and I would recommend her to everyone I know.

Everything was very well done, we could not be more pleased, our travel agent did a wonderful job!!!! We loved the cruise. The only thing on the cruise was that I wish we did not have to get dressed up after 6:00 in the evening. If you were not dressed you could not eat anywhere except room service. It would be nice if they had a casual dinner for people we just want something easy.Sometimes you are a little tired from the day and it would be nice to not have to get all dressed up just to go eat. I also wish we had more time for a little shopping in Jerusalem. That is where I really wanted to bring things home from and we were only taken to one place in Bethlehem so you feel very pressured to buy from them and their prices were higher than in Jerusalem. I was very disappointed in that area. I did not get to purchase what I really wanted to take home. I think a little bit of time even 30 minutes in Jerusalem would have been sufficient.

I cannot say enough about the service we received from Elaine. She was an amazing resource of knowledge and went above and beyond to make sure we had a fabulous time. She booked our flights and hotels. We got fantastic rates and were very pleased with the included amenities from Virtuoso. Elaine also called each hotel before our arrival to prep the staff and see if any upgrades could be applied. I am happy to say we got an upgrade each place we went. I will be recommending Elaine to everyone I know that loves to travel. A+++

Elaine and World Travel are the BEST!

By: Ted

Reviewed on: 23 Sep 2016

I have used World travel now for over a decade. Before that I booked my own trips online. But once I learned of the value a travel agent provides it was a no brainer to turn to World Travel. They have been in business for many years so I figured I they were doing something right. I met Elaine and fell in love with her personal service. She is knowledgeable, polite, funny, and charming. She makes my vacation planning a joy. I would recommend her to anyone and I have actually. They love her too! I will keep going back to Elaine and World Travel for all my travel needs.. Her recommendations to Virtuoso properties have never disappointed. I would always ask for those properties first wherever I go.
