Very knowledgable about the details of travel in Italy.

By: eyeflyone2


Reviewed on: 31 Oct 2013

Debbie was very thorough in all aspects of our trip, and allowed us to participate in every way-i.e., did not push any packages or costly lodging-we got our own airfare and she worked around that information. She's very knowledgable about little details that made the trip both problem-free and a great experience. I will use her for all my future travel plans to Europe!

We have worked with Debbie on numerous occasions, and she is WONDERFUL! One of the best things about Debbie is that her recommendations are almost always based on her first-hand experience, as she, herself, travels the world to ensure that her clients always have a magnificent experience when they vacation. Debbie also does an excellent job in terms of understanding our objectives, and then working within our budget to make appropriate recommendations.

Debbie planned a special getaway weekend for our family this summer at the Lodge in Sea Island. Her recommendation for a beach weekend with lots of activities was spot on. The resort was fabulous with plenty of options to please all...from fishing to golf to lounging by the beach. Debbie has a special talent in discerning her clients' wants and needs and assures that travel expectations are met. We highly recommend her and will use her services in the future.

Spectacular vacation

By: Baboco


Reviewed on: 27 Dec 2013

The flight was easy and the airports were simple to navigate. The resort was right on a gorgeous beach with lots of activities. The food in the specialty restaurants was delicious and a good variety. I would highly recommend the preferred club for a lot of reasons and don't get a top floor suite in case it rains, there is no roof for those patios. The access road was awful but you only travel it going in or out and they were raising and grading it when we left.

Debbie helped us plan our recent trip to Paris.  Our hotel was lovely with excellent service and a very friendly staff.  She helped us plan our schedule with the perfect balance of scheduled activities vs down time to enjoy and explore the city on our own.  I have never been disappointed with any trip we have taken that Debbie helped us plan.

Great Family Trip to Paris, Normandy and London

By: lisag


Reviewed on: 05 Jun 2014

Debbie helped us plan an amazing family trip to Europe!  In a short period of time we covered a lot of ground and she guided us every step of the way,  making a dream a reality.  She made wonderful suggestions and arranged wonderful guides to help us.  Without her expertise and guidance I think we would have spent too much time fumbling around, fighting crowds and standing in lines.  Instead we got the most out of our time thanks to her planning.  Our trip had something for everyone!  Ferry rides, museums, great sights and even a visit to Harry Potter Studio Tour!  Thanks Debbie!

Debbie planned every detail of our trip with perfection. Not only is she knowledgeable about London, but also worked to get my daughter and me some added "perks" along the way. Morgan, my daughter, had a wonderful birthday experience in London thanks to Debbie. I would highly recommend, and have done so, Debbie to anyone wanting to plan a trip abroad. I will only use Debbie in the future for my trips abroad. Brownell Travel has an agent who loves what she does and transfers that passion to planning trips for her customers. Thanks Debbie and Brownell for a great trip.  Suzanne Couvillion

Hotel Lungarno

By: mquist


Reviewed on: 02 Oct 2014

The Hotel Lungarno is very conveniently located in Florence. My room was spacious, clean and nicely appointed. The beds were extremely comfortable with down duvets. The bathroom was large and featured 2 sinks. Loved having 2 large closets. The complimentary breakfast was very pleasant. My group enjoyed the nice den space in the lobby as a meeting place. Would recommend booking a room overlooking the Arno to be a bit quieter than those on the street and courtyard side.

Debbie first introduced us to the Windstar cruises 4 years ago, and we toured the Caribbean on the Wind Spirit. We have just returned from another trip aboard the Wind Spirit through the Panama Canal and up the Pacific Coast of Coast Rica.

We are so thankful for Debbie and her wonderful connections world wide. We decided to book a last minute get away to sunny south Florida and Debbie was able to not only get us a room at the sold out Ritz Key Biscayne, but to get us upgraded to an oceanfront one bedroom condo there! It was the perfect spot for an easy weekend get away. We enjoyed riding bikes to the state park, dining on both the Ritz property and in Key Biscayne and the lovely beach at the Ritz.

Don't Miss This Trip!

By: Cinzia


Reviewed on: 14 Dec 2015

Put this on your bucket list and make sure you have Debbie Fairvalley plan the trip for you! Peru and Galapagos Islands, a 17 day adventure you won't want to miss. Debbie put together an action packed trip that was educational, filled with adventure, exciting excursions, amazing tour guides, cuisine to die for, and it all flowed from one event to the next with ease. Our trip was so well organized that we were able to see twice as much as we would have seen if she had not planned it. Her extensive knowledge of Peru and the Galapagos gave us the advantage of staying in the best hotels, working with local tour guides that grew up in the area we were touring, experiencing not only the obvious tourist attractions but places only locals visit. Her well planned itinerary allowed us to enjoy the sites and not worry about the details. Fabulous adventure from start to finish!! Thanks Debbie, we have memories that will last a lifetime.

Debbie planned a wonderful New Year's Trip for our family. Garza Blanca Resort was excellent! Our suite had a spectacular view and was spacious for our family of four adults. The restaurants on property served excellent food and our service was top notch. The staff was attentive and friendly. Room service needed some work, but we were there on a holiday so that was to be expected. We ventured off premise and felt safe in Puerta Vallarta. I would highly recommend this trip.

I was trying to set up a group trip for 4 couples and was getting very stressed out. I contacted DebbieFairvalley at Brownell Travel and she took all the stress and responsibility off my shoulders. Debbie got us a great rate, the best rooms, arranged for the transfers, handled passport information...and everything else me and my friends would have had to do. As really busy people, I cannot begin to tell you how nice it was to have her take over all this responsibility!! What was really great is there a million choices in the Dominican ...I was looking at all the resorts and could not make a decision...Debbie had been to Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and other resorts in the DR and knew we would really like Hard Rock. The guys wanted to golf ...since Debbie golfs and loved the course at Hard Rock she could recommend it...the guys LOVED the course. If you want a stress free vacation with someone that's knowledgeable....you must call Debbie Fairvalley at Brownell! Kat

Dream Honeymoon

By: HappilyMarried


Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2016

Our trip to the Greek Isles for our honeymoon was perfect in every way. Debbie took care of us from start to finish and made sure everything was perfect. She planned our entire trip for us and she knocked it out of the ballpark. She made all of our reservations and transfers and everything was flawless. Our transfers were always waiting on us, ready to take us to our destination in a very nice car/van/limo and the drivers were always very nice. Our private motor and sailing tours around Mykonos and Santorini were a real treat. Her professionalism shined when facing a labor strike that prevented our transfer from Mykonos to Santorini, and she arranged a helicopter to take us. Our hotels were first rate and included breakfast as well as a nice welcome note, a bottle of wine and rose petals on our beds. Debbie also made sure we had an "Breakfast Box" for our early 4am departure from Athens back to the US, which showed her attention to detail. It was a dream trip and everything was perfect

Debbie is the ultimate professional. She is knowledgeable and will never mislead you. She does her research and presents options to you for you to make an informed decision. We are very busy executives and don't have time to hassle with looking at options. We are quick decision makers and if she does not like our decision she will tell us why and why we should reconsider for a better experience...love that and her.

Our family has worked with Debbie on a number of trips. We have so much regard for how Debbie handles the planning and execution of our trips that we continue to seek her services. Our time as a family or a couple to travel is very valuable to us and we know that Debbie will provide a well thought out, first class experience. We recommend Debbie to friends without hesitation. This couples trip to Tuscany was all that we had imagined. Our well appointed Tuscan villa in the middle of vineyards and olive groves provided the perfect back drop for watching the sunset as we sipped Italian wines. We traveled to wineries and also took day trips to Florence and Siena. We began our trip with two days in Rome in which Debbie helped us select a beautiful, romantic and historic hotel - the Splendide Royal. On the rare occasion that a travel issue arises, Debbie is always prompt and professional in the resolution. We had another fabulous trip and plan to return.

I was totally shocked. Our hotel in Paris was okay but getting a cup of coffee you could drink was impossible except one morning when they had an Nexpresso machine.
