Good tours

By: sukey

Reviewed on: 15 Jul 2015

Julie hooked us up with 2 really good tours in Seattle as well as the air tickets. The tours, particularly the Mt Ranier tour, were just fantastic. Well run, everything went smoothly.

The best in professional service!

We have used Julie for over 15 years, often involving a family group of over 15, at sophisticated resorts in numerous locations all without a hitch. Julie is the best, she will not fail you.

Great time!

Had a great time in the UK. CIE did a good job making our trip comfortable and we thought we were on the Amazing Race going to so many places. Our highlights were walking the course at St. Andrews and getting into Buckingham Palace. We met many great people on the coach and had only 20 people until we got to London then some left and 10 more joined us. United Airlines needs to clean up their act but I wasn't expecting too much from them to begin with. Oh well! Thanks, Julie for making our trip a trip of a lifetime.

Oceania Cruise

By: Terry

Reviewed on: 05 Oct 2015

We hoped to see the fall colors in the NE USA & Canada.....no such luck ...too warm..........the day trips , except for Boston, Quebec City, & Newport RI were not that interesting............I would never travel on the Regatta again.............No amenities like Oceania's larger ships and it rocked so much while traveling at night ,it was hard to sleep..............The food was average , service very good , but having a Butler was a joke definitely NOT worth the extra cost..........Weather was fine

We went to Disney World with kids and grandkids. Disney is a maze, it's like foreign language to me, I needed a translator! I booked this trip in May for a pre-Christmas trip, and even with that time frame found many in-park hotels booked. Julie found us a condo in the park that everyone loved, it was perfect. Could not have done this without her.

What is this email for? It is not clear as to its purpose and since we do not make our trip until July 8th question why you have sent it to me. As to Ms Roman's service it could not have been better. Earle Everett

What a wonderful French river cruise Julie planned for us this June through Tauck! From booking our flights to following up with last minute details, Julie helped us plan the perfect trip.

Hi Julie Wonderful trip that we would highly recommend. Just a couple of observations--Select rooms for clients on the port side so they can visualize the famous Kauai coastline from their balcony. Never book room 10031 cuz its surrounded by two areas where staff are busy all the time & many sounds are generated during the night. On the excursion to Haleakala, Make sure everyone has winter clothes for the Sunrise. We froze waiting for hours. The ship itself was freezing cold all the time. Many people complaining & I was not prepared for the low temperatures thru out the ship. Too many elderly for my granddaughters- so no friendships developed. I would not repeat this trip but having said all that, we had a fun time together.

We had planned our cruise to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary by taking our three children and their spouses to Alaska. It was a very memorable trip much to the credit of our T/A, Julie, who handled all the arrangements for all 4 families, including airfare, escursions, dinner arrangements, while keeping everyone informed- it was a first cruise for our children who appreciated the personalization she extended. This was our 5th with Oceania and the best yet, with exceptional service and food. The entertainment was good, the excursions just passable.

Knowledgeable, delightful and profecional

Our Viking River Cruise was a winner. The ships crew was very attentive and obliging in every way. At times we felt like Royalty. The entertainment was delightful and the food was excellent as were the personnel that served. In the future, we certainly would love to cruise with Viking again. Auto Europa was not at all reliable. We ordered a BMW which was not available at arrival. They gave us a Mercedes instead , but no one was available to explain the the function of the navigation system; nor was it usable in the English language.

Great working with Julie. She is knowledgeable and always on top of the situation. With the hurricane right before our cruise, our plans were in doubt. Julie immediately hit the phone and Internet to find another pre-cruise hotel. Success! We had a great time.
