My Background

For over 20 years, I have been striving to make every client’s travel dreams come true, planning destination weddings, honeymoons, all-inclusive trips and family travel. I serve as a Destination Specialist for Europe, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and the South Pacific. I’m also a member of Virtuoso, a Certified Sandals Specialist, and an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.

My favorite trip so far was my breathtaking tour of the Alaska inside passage; I still want to tour the interior. Recently, I’ve visited several tropical destinations like Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Exuma in the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

I also lived in Belgium for two years, giving me the once in a lifetime opportunity to travel extensively throughout the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Spain, England and Denmark.

Tracy did very good

By: Bob & Joan


Reviewed on: 01 Jun 2014

We figured out our own basic itinerary for our vacation through the west (where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, etc), and then turned all of that information over to Tracy. She took it from there with plane reservations, car reservations, motel reservations, and other things. Everything she worked on made our vacation run smoothly. In summary, "TRACY DID VERY GOOD!!!"

We had a great time!

Tracy did a great job helping us plan and organize our trip to Jamaica.  Everything went smoothly ....no issues.  As first-time int'l travelers, we maybe needed a better idea of what to expect w/ baggage & customs & immigration but we figured it out.  We'd definitely contact Tracy @ T&T for future travel :)

This was my first Cruise so I did not know where to start, not even where to go. After browsing in the internet I decided to call Tracy to get some direction. She found the dates that I wanted, the places that I dreamt of at the budget that I could afford.  She absolutely did everything for me including logging in all the informtation required by the cruise line. I can't thank Tracy enough for making my trip so easy. The trip was great and exceeded my expectations. I was so delighted that I decided to do another Cruise with my kids 2 months later and again, Tracy is currently taking care of my trip just like she did with the previous one. She is great!

Punta Cana Review

By: Rick


Reviewed on: 01 Jul 2014

We stayed at the Royal Catalonia Bavarro in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  We went with 5 other couples.  We had a really good time.  The resort was nice.  Beach was good, pools were good.  Our room was very nice.  Food was mixed, some was good, some was okay, and some was below average.  Drinks were a little disappointing.  Only one type of beer, it was below average and not the coldest.  Mixed drinks were not as good as the US gives you.  The service was poor, they just didn't show any excitement to serve us.  They were slow too, maybe because it was all inclusive and there was no tipping.  We did tip sometimes, didn't seem to help.  I would still say we had a good time, but would probably recommend another resort to others.

For what we paid for this trip, I would have expected the service to be better. The staff at the resort was rude and not very helpful. The Delta Travels staff was pretty good but not the staff at the resort.

It was great having great hotels reserved within walking distance of the trains.  They were reasonably priced, clean and top notch.  The breakfasts were great.  We did not know about the hotel vouchers but the hotels were very agreeable without them.

Tracy - thank you for everything, all arrangements were spot-on. You provided necessary and sufficient details, all were correct. The Holiday Inn Capitol was exactly as described, very nice. A flight delay from Richmond caused us to miss a connection in Chicago - NOT YOUR FAULT! - so we got home about 8 hours later. But no worries, we were on vacation anyway. Rental cars were all fine; both Alamo and Enterprise were helpful and quick. In short, I will remember you for the next vacation...we're thinking Grand canyon next summer...!

Travel Review

By: Traveller


Reviewed on: 12 Feb 2015

Trip and arrangements ended up working out; however, there were some convenience issues I wish I would have had options for. For example, we had to take a shuttle to our rental car, which was a pain with two young kids. After that, we had to return rental car and get a shuttle back to airport. That does not work out well when the car rental doesn't open until 5am and you fly out at 6:30am. She was great about keeping an eye on flights and pricing to ensure we got a good deal on the flights, and she got us to our destination at a good time and we were home early enough on the return trip.

our trip was wonderful, hotel good, air time good. Delta was a nice airline to work with. Our car was expensive, we took out some insurance on the car but by the time they added all the extras taxes and lot fee we had to pay over $235.00 when we took the car back plus what we paid on the original ticket which included plane hotel and car. So we learned a lesson there, we won't be using their extra insurance again. thanks for all your help, it really was a fun trip.

My fiance and I came to Tracy after trying to plan our own honeymoon for several hours and deciding we really needed an expert to help us. She was fantastic! She listened to what we were looking for in our trip and came up with a really good itinerary for us, despite the fact that we weren't able to tell her much about where we wanted to go or what we wanted to do there. She even was able to work around our tight travel schedule and the 3 days we had already booked at a resort. We had a fantastic trip and enjoyed every minute of it, and made it home just in time for our second reception at my parents' house! We will definitely go to her again for help planning our next vacation.

"Hidden" costs added up to $245

By: Karen8


Reviewed on: 28 Feb 2015

Lots of things were wonderful about our Vegas trip. The days were 70 and sunny. Paris Las Vegas was strategically located right in the middle of the Strip. The major disappointment was the unexpected add-on costs. We arrived at the hotel at 2:10 pm and hoped to check-in, but were told we'd be charged a $20 fee for checking in early. (Apparently check-in time is 3 p.m.) We opted to check our bags with the bell hop and wait until 3. All three of us are coffee drinkers. There was no coffee maker in our room. We called housekeeping to learn we needed to upgrade for a coffee maker (only available on floors 26 and above... we were on floor 20.) For four days, we ordered room service which stated a one liter container of coffee cost $12. In very fine print, we learned an additional service charge of $8 would be added. So, we paid $80 for coffee that amounted to one small cup a day for the three of us. We also were charged for internet access, although we thought we wouldn't be.

Thanks for the good service. Enjoyed the trip and everything went pretty smooth. Hotel could have been a little more accommodating on giving us information on a place to get a quick sandwich after arriving. Steered us to their restaurant and later we found out we could have gone across the street and gotten a quick sandwich and drink. (needed quick because of a medical condition(diabetes) and after long trip on plane needed something fast. Other wise everyone was very helpful and tours were wonderful.
