Super service from Kara

By: Bill

Reviewed on: 15 May 2018

One word says it all - Wonderful! Unfortunately we had to cancel our Africa Safari. Kara not only provided excellent advice when planning this trip and a previous Safari in 2016, but she unwound it and when we had to cancel for medical reasons, managed a very timely and reasonable travel insurance settlement.

Kara is great!!! She has assisted my husband and I with booking four different trips. We used the tour company Kara recommended and they have exceeded all of our expectations. Kara is always there to answer any questions we have from the best way to navigate around a foreign city to the best hotel to stay at. I have referred others to Kara with confidence knowing she will provide them with the same great service.

Tour of Scotland

By: Scotty

Reviewed on: 23 Aug 2018

Kara was prompt, encouraging, and awesome. She went with the flow and responded to upgrades and changes with complete professionalism. We had never been overseas and hadn't flown since 911. She was so good at setting our minds at ease and walked us through the whole process with a great deal of patience. The tour was everything she said it would be and more. Would highly recommend Kara to everyone.

Europe 2018

By: Jim

Reviewed on: 26 Aug 2018

Kara is a pro at travel service. She works hard to get you the type of trip you want; is easy to communicate with; and great with followups. This was a complicated trip to put together and it was well done. Accommodations were good and travel itinerary was effective. It was a 21 day trip with trains, planes, and automobiles across Europe with only the minor hassles one has in traveling like this. That's because the trip was so well planned.

Kara was very helpful. She went above and beyond in helping us get passports after we figured out ours had expired a week before our trip! She handles everything in a more than timely fashion and she was very polite and professional! We recommend Kara to everyone and we will use her again!!

Rhine Riverboat Cruise

By: Phyl

Reviewed on: 24 Sep 2018

Kara is quite wonderful. She is very efficient; she helps us make the best choices in, companies with which to travel; she arranges airline seating to our best advantage, and we are very comfortable in trusting her judgment. We have used her expertise many times and have never been disappointed. The Riverboat Cruise lived up to our expectation. It was our third one.

The perfect itinerary

Kara booked us the perfect trip to Hawaii. Flights were conveniently timed on our multi-legged trip, with appropriate layovers. The resort choices were the perfect match for us, with locations near the activities that mattered to us. Would definitely use her again!
