My Background

Incorporating my 28 years of travel planning experience with a life-long appreciation of the adventure, education and cultural bridges that travel provides is my passion. Sea kayaking through Glacier Bay or the British Virgin Islands, X-Country Skiing through our National Parks, Heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies, Hiking in Chile's Atacama Desert, Trekking in New Zealand's wilderness, Cycling the Back Roads of Europe, Enjoying a Wine Safari in South Africa, or Rappelling down a Costa Rican Waterfall have been some of the highlights of my travel adventures. Sharing these adventures in the "give and take" of designing unique, once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences with my clients creates wonderful memories for them and inspires me to keep learning and exploring our world.

We have had Roz as our travel agent for 15+ years. she is the best. Is very professional and easy to get in touch with. Returns phone calls and e-mails in a very, very timely manner. We like working with her since she has been to so many places and give us first hand information. that means a lot to us. We call her and say "where do you think we should go next". We always trust her judgment.

Even though we are 2000 miles apart Roz always does the job for me. I give her a suggestion and she gives me feedback then does all the work making the plans. That saves me hours on each trip. Already have 2 more trips scheduled for next year and have more plans that I have not finalized yet. Roz always calls back in a timely manner and I trust her advice 100%

The game reserve in South Africa was fantastic with incredible guides, game sightings, food and wonderful accommodations. Roz got us a terrific guide and very nice lodgings in the wine areas. Her suggestions on what to see and do were always right-on. Roz's attention to the details of travel is precise from the airline travel to the vouchers for the hotels/tours. Her knowledge of the areas of travel is vast, and her enthusiasm is infectious.

My first trip planned by Roz was in 2003. I've turned to her about 5-6 times since then. She always listens carefully and comes up with options that fit my price and preferences. I don't even live in New Mexico anymore, but I wouldn't call anyone else!

Ms.Gibel recently helped us plan our dream trip to Alaska. Despite presenting her with this request somewhat at last moment, she planned a trip that enabled us to stay in the heart of Denali park for several days, and to tour wonderful sites around Anchorage and Seward. The accomodations that she choose were first rate, we experienced no glitches and the cost of our trip was very reasonable.

Roz was very skillful in arranging our family trip and insurance to Club Med, Cancun. She made sure that we were housed in the same building next to each other and that we were seated at 2 adjacent tables for dinner. We had no problems whatsoever with our reservations. We have used Roz' services many times in the past and plan to use her services again.

Roz did a spectacular job arranging this trip to Southeast Asia to meet our specific needs. The guides we had at each of our destinations were excellent. They were very knowledgeable, easy to understand and most importantly they were flexible with our agenda. All of our hotels were beautiful but the one that really stood out was the Nam Hi in Hoi An. It was over the top.I would highly recommend this trip.

Another great trip (Italy)

By: T & D


Reviewed on: 28 Oct 2014

A most enjoyable and fun trip to Italy: Tuscany was beautiful in October and the wine harvest was just coming in which made the wine tasting visits all the more interesting. The hotels were great as always. The refurbished castle/monastery in the Chianti countryside was marvelous and the location very convenient to day trips to wineries as well as to Sienna. Our Florence hotel was also very convenient with a great view of the Santa Croce church tower right outside our window, while being just off the heavy tourist street traffic. Having 5 nights in Florence gave us time to adjust to the time change, explore the city and many museums in a relaxed way, and to find a few beautiful leather goods.

Our trip on Regent to Canada and Alaska was wonderful. The Regent Navigator, our ship, had 489 passengers which allowed the staff to pretty much personalize service after the first couple days. We had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and made some new friends. The Regent service was outstanding and top-notch. The food on the ship was outstanding and the wait staff was truly wonderful. Although it rained most of the time, we still had opportunities to visit sites in Alaska and had a good time at each. We would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see Alaska at its best!
