Outstanding service!

Well, from 1-10, I would give Sharon and 11. I have used her for years to setup all my trips. She arranged my two trips to Europe and each was oustanding. She really knows her stuff! Give that lady a raise!

Better than promised

We had a great experience with all the guides and services Sharon organized for our China itinerary. Our 8 flights were comfortable connections and the variety of tour guides in multiple cities were professional, warm-hearted and punctual. All the hotels Sharon booked were better than we had expected. Domestic travel went very smoothly. Only in one instance was our train cancelled at the last minute, but the tour guides called me and said they would replace our tickets with flights and cover the difference themselves. What a treat! Everything went off without a hitch. The only part of the trip that didn't work was my global phone, but that wasn't Sharon's fault. It came from another company. We highly recommend booking with Sharon Organista.

I normally plan my own trips and make all arrangements myself but decided to use Sharon to book our European cruise and to help with some of our pre-cruise arrangements. She provided great advice and made a number of reservations for us. All worked out very well. Her knowledge was invaluable, her follow-up great and she was a pleasure to work with. Will use her services again.

We returned in February from a beautiful trip to India. I used to make my own travel arrangements, with a little help along the way. After experiencing Sharon's help, I'm a true believer. It made such a difference to have her experience and support for this trip. She connected us with a wonderful tour company specializing in travel to India. Sharon made sure all of our arrangements met our expectations, and sent us in the right direction for help with the tedious visa process. The trip far exceeded our expectations. We decided to opt for a custom trip for the two of us, and the arrangements could not have been better. I wouldn't think about taking a trip now without Sharon's assistance. I still love to spend my time checking out our trips and researching hotels, but then Sharon makes it all happen. She's doing a wonderful job.

The cruise on AmaWaterways was a great experience. We went to some interesting places- Budapest, Vienna, and Prague ads well as Melk Abbey. The accommodations were fine and the food was very good. The wine was of the area and was very good. I would highly recommend the trip.i

Fabulous trip, very well planned.

Beautiful custom trip!

Sharon helped us put together a beautiful trip to Argentina with a side trip to Colonia, Uruguay. We included enough travel to see diverse parts of Argentina, but not become overburdened by too many flights or too short a time at each place. It was a wonderful trip filled with diverse sights and the perfect combination of activity and guided tours along with time to rest and explore on our own. We visited Buenos Aires, Colonia, Igazu Falls, Mendoza, El Calafate, then back to Buenos Aires. Flights are always a challenge, but Sharon was able to book all of our internal flights at good times and we headed off on our trip with all of the details wrapped up. The local guides and drivers were wonderful. We loved this trip and look forward to returning to South America.

Sharon is the BEST

Sharron has made several foreign trips and local ones up the coast for my wife and I over the past few years. All have be extremely wonderful and her attention to our needs and details of the trip and accommodations were outstanding. More importantly...when we had to cancel a trip to Italy this fall she handled all the effort to get us a 100% refund. Sharon is the best travel agent we have had in over 40 years of world wide travel...including all 7 continents.

First Tour for our youngest son.

By: Save Saragosa

Reviewed on: 29 Sep 2018

She did a great job as usual. I told her what we wanted and she got it done. She got our Colosseum tour and our son was awed by what he saw. She got us the premium economy seat which were great and roomy. British Airways lost our luggage for two days, but I can't blame Sharon for that. The Cosmos tour was great and our tour guide was also great. She treated us like family. She even arranged for Cosmos to pick us up at the airport. My hats off to Sharon.

Sharon is organized yet flexible. She had created a tour for us and when we realized the expense, she quickly changed gears and found a better, cost effective trip. We enjoyed every minute. Also, the fact that she has been so many places is very helpful when booking hotels.
