My Background

My parents introduced me to travel virtually with trips to the Burton Holmes Travelogues at a theater in downtown Cincinnati. Summer of my junior year at Thomas More was 6 hours of French at the University of Tours in the Loire Valley. I never stopped travelling.

 Every trip is an adventure of some kind. I travel with my husband and family or friends or with other travel agents. From Kruger to Denali, Paris to Sydney, it's all great!

Mary Ann works very hard to understand her clients' personality and likes before she works on planning the trip. We have used her services for almost 20 years so she know our likes and dislikes very well and makes recommendations with this knowledge. She did a first class job of our recent Deli trip.

When The Best Is Enough

Mary Ann has been our travel agent for 30 plus years. Our recent trip on the Queen Elizabeth to the Black Sea typifies her attention to every detail, patience with our often trivial questions, and vast knowledge of the travel industry. In short, Mary Ann does not let her clients down! Thanks to her we don't have a worry in the world when we travel.

Expensive and no value

By: Frankie

Arrival at Istanbul we discovered we needed a visa which had not been disclosed. Visa could have been obtained on line before we left the States. We were told that there was no business class section on our flight from Istanbul to Vienna. There was clearly a business class section. We did not take prepaid transportation. Transportation (all english speaking) was about 1/3 the cost of what Mary Anne's quoted arrangements. Direct involvement with hotels would have been less expensive.

We had a terrific trip to France with Mary Ann's help and advice. Though I design much of our trips myself, she was of tremendous assistance in dealing with hotel and barge cruise operators, as well as transportation. Mary Ann found a great deal on a rental car and made sure that a wheelchair was available in airports for my mother. We followed her advice on two of our hotels; spot-on both times. I wouldn't hesitate to use Mary Ann's services again.

Takes the time to find out what you want before making a recommendation on a vacation spot or hotel, etc. Experience and expertise along with dedication make her a travel agent you would want to use.

I've used Mary Ann for several years. She pays attention to details and I always feel better knowing that she is organizing for me. She always has good suggestions of places to visit and how to get there, as well as hotels. I could only hope that all of your workers are as efficient and personable as Mary Ann.

The best person in the world for getting me from here to there, no matter where it is!

I cannot say enough good things about Mary Ann and her help to me. I'm just short of 83 years old and it doesn't matter where I'm travelling, I phone her first. She is the BEST! I've travelled to Australia, South America, Europe, Russia and in the United States and she does everything for me. I wouldn't know where or whom to go to to get the same service. Thank goodness I have her name and phone number.

Mary Ann did a fabulous job of choosing the best hotels in our price range.  The sights we were able to get were of the best quality and we were able to see much of Ireland.  She choose Celtic tours and our bus driver/tour guide made sure we saw everything on the itinerary and even more.  He never steered us wrong.I would always encourage my friends to use Provident and request Mary Ann as their travel agent.

We traveled to Germany and to Norway, and all went smoothly. Ms. Tiemeier arrange top flight accomodations, and also booked train passage and bike tours. We had last minute changes to the trip-two people could not go just two weeks before-and she made appropriate changes in this regard as well. Very satisfied with the service and the trip. We plan to ask her to book our next one.

A Real Professional

I can't say enough about Mary Ann. She is a real professional. I could give you lots of examples but this last trip she booked for us was during our annual visit to Hawaii. We were just getting settled in for our visit when on Sunday we received notice that a family member had died. I called Mary Ann that we needed to get to Tampa by Tuesday. With in an hour she called me back and had three possibilities for our trip (remember this was a Sunday when she was doing this work). She said that she knew we liked Delta but the trip for both of us would be $5,000 in coach. She said she thought the American flight even though it was almost sold out we could get a round trip for $1,800. She emailed the flights and hotel information to us Monday morning. We arrived in Tampa Tuesday afternoon for a Wednesday service and was back in Hawaii Thursday evening.
