Highly Recommended

Lynda Johnson has been my travel agent for over ten years and I consider her one of the family. She has organized the most amazing "family trips" coordinating all the family members who live in the United States, Italy, Switzerland and Portugal that we will always treasure and remember. Moreover, she is very quick and efficient and manages to book trips at a last minute notice as well. I am very lucky to have met her.

Lynda is very professional and has always gone beyond what is expected. When we had problems in a foreign country she quickly resolved it even though she was on vacation. Her suggestions for travel, hotels, transportation, site seeing,etc. are exceptional.

Have been using Lynda for the past 2 years. After our travel agent of 20 years retired, we were left trying to find a new spouse after becoming widow(er). Lynda has set up several trips for us over the past few years. If given a general description of your travel plans she can come up with fantastic itinerary.

Excellent Professional Service


Reviewed on: 27 Oct 2014

Our trip to France was excellent. Every detail was taken care of for us. We were very pleased with the hotels and guides. Le Meurice was very nice. The staff was always ready to serve us. We did have a glitch in Lyon. The Cour des Loges failed to reserve our room. The manager was very apologetic and he got us a suite at the Sofitel for two nights and a complimentary night at the Cour des Loges the evening before we flew home. It was inconvenient having to go to the Sofitel and check out by noon and then go to the Cour des Loges to their check in time. They were accommodating and we were able to get our room before the 3:00PM check in time. Lynda has always done an excellent job on all of our trips. She knows our likes and dislikes and does her best to make sure every detail of our trip is always taken care of. We appreciate her.

As far as the arrangements which Lynda Johnson made for us, they were excellent. She has been planning trips for us for many years, and she has done well on every trip. She is very knowledgable and experienced. She is a excellent travel agent. Our accommodations were lovely. We were very pleased with everything. We were surprised and somewhat disappointed in our bill at checkout from the Charleston Place in Charleston. There were only three of us and we were there only there three nights. Our bill was over $4,000, We had one dinner, breakfast each day and house wine one night in the cocktail lounge. We had requested two rooms. Mine was to be for a single and the other for my daughter and granddaughter, a double. Virtuoso upgraded us to suites, gave us $100. credit per room plus $32.00 complimentary breakfast credit for each room. All of which was lovely and appreciated, but our bill was still very high, I thought.

Great suggestion

We hadn't taken a river cruise before, although frequent ocean cruisers. We were getting ready to leave on a British Isle cruise when I called Lynda to have her look into a tulip cruise. She called back the next day with suggestions as the ships were filling up. She suggested Amawaterways which turned out to be a great cruise. She also had great suggestions for a hotel in Amsterdam as we wanted a few days in the city prior to the cruise. She arranged pickup at airport which just made things so much easier.

What a fabulous Hawaii trip for our family. Hotel reservations for three families, beautiful accommodations, airfare, rental car and unlimited recommendations for entertainment and dining. This was our second trip to Maui and the Fairmont. Perfect hotel for the kids of all ages and near beach accommodations. Lynda has been a life savoir for more years than I'll admit. So knowledgeable and always leading us to travels we'll enjoy and within our budget. I couldn't make a stronger recommendation for her services.

Cool and wonderful!

We cruised on board the Regent S.S. Voyager to the Baltic Sea and Scandinavia. The Voyager is a beautiful and graceful ship with all the amenities one could ask for while at sea. The food was excellent, there was entertainment available, and the staff and crew were very friendly, helpful, attentive, and professional. The itinerary took us to some places we would not have thought of visiting ordinarily (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia for example). The weather cooperated with cool, sometimes showery days, but nothing we couldn't manage. All in all, our trip was a joy. Our experience with Cruises, Etc. and our trip advisor, Lynda Johnson, was also a joy. All arrangements were perfect and Lynda was most helpful with advice and answers to our myriad of questions. We would travel with Lynda and Cruises, Etc. again in the future.

Another wonderful Crystal cruise arranged through Lynda. Sent us back to our favorite Mandarin Oriental pre-cruise in Miami. When we book through Lynda, she makes sure we stay at places we will love and the Virtuoso amenities are much appreciated. Lynda takes the hassle of travel out of the equation for us, allowing us to focus on relaxation and being on vacation!

Continued good dervice

The pre-cruise details were handled well. Large dinner parties were arranged pre-cruise. Although Regent is still an excellent cruise line, over the past 9 years I think things have slipped a bit. Our dinner in Prime 7 was probably the worst dinner I've ever had. Steaks mostly fat and prime rib unable to be cut. The 2-lb king crab looked like all scraps. Short of that dinner, the food was still well prepared.

Mother Nature & Crystal Cruises both great

Crystal Cruises' recent Alaska cruise was everything we have come to expect from Crystal. The combination of a terrific itinerary, great accommodations, food, entertainment, and a well trained friendly staff with exceptional weather made it easy to commend Crystal Cruises for meeting our high expectations.

Good trip! Ship was a good size and itinerary good. Trip package and money on board use not clear and as it worked out we could not use it as we prepayed for our land trips we left that money unused. Dis appointed either with ship representative or travel agency
