Paris in January

Paris may not be in the forefront of your mind when considering January travel, but there are a lot of benefits to visiting in the winter. Crowds are much smaller - you can walk into sites like Notre Dame and the Louvre with little to no wait. There's something wonderful about... Read more from my Paris in January story.

Carefree travel from start to finish!

Reviewed By Kathy & Sal - New Orleans, LA | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
It had been a number of years since my husband and I cruised, so since we were traveling with a small group we decided to turn to Crystal to help us coordinate . Crystal handled all the details of our vacation, big and small, with top-notch service. She was always available to answer our questions and make every arrangement for us and the rest of our party (group texts and private). Every detail of our trip was handled in a friendly and professional manner. I have already recommended her to other people who I know are frequent travelers. The best!!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Crystal Teter responded:
Thanks Kathy. It was my absolute pleasure!

So Easy!

Reviewed By Janie - Columbus, OH | Traveled to Maryland ~ USA
I was planning a trip for myself and other family members, all with different requirements (some accessible rooms, some with pets, some connecting rooms, etc.) Crystal found just what we needed in a good location at a good price. She also helped us find just the right activities. She made it easy and I would definitely book with her again.

Best trip or our lives - so far!!

Reviewed By Julie - Columbus, OH | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Crystal did an initial itinerary based on some basic questions and then we reviewed this together. After more discussion (with something tangible and in writing) we were able to tweak our dates/events based on these conversations and we ended up with an amazing trip! Crystal was able to make recommendations that met exactly what we were looking for!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Crystal Teter responded:
Thank you Julie! I love working with clients who are open to back and forth dialog - it helps make the end result that much better. Looking forward to working with you on the next trip!

Land and Sea - Always a Great Adventure

Reviewed By ST - Columbus, Ohio | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
My last several cruises were booked with Crystal - the most recent ones being on Celebrity to the ABC Islands, and Royal Caribbean to the Western Caribbean. Had a fantastic time on both, and Crystal also recommended and arranged some great excursions, allowing us to make the most of our time while in port. I have also used Crystal for land travel, and have always had wonderful trips.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Crystal Teter responded:
It's always so much fun planning these trips! Can't wait for the next one.

Fantastic and Memorable Anniversary trip!

Reviewed By Avn - Dublin, Ohio | Traveled to Bergen ~ Norway ~ Europe
My experience is amazing !!
When we reached our hotel in Oslo on our Anniversary day there was a surprise in our room with a nice Greeting card, Candies and a Champagne bottle (Of course Non-Alcoholic, as she knows I don't drink) in the room. Never expected and it was a great gesture on her part.
Crystal took care of all my hotel bookings in Bergen, Oslo and Prague and I had a very comfortable stay in all those hotels.
She is a great guide to work with for for any kind of travel.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Crystal Teter responded:
I had so much fan planning your surprise! I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. Thank you again for allowing me to play a small part in your very special trip.

Virtual Travel Win During a Pandemic

Reviewed By Nick - Westerville, OH | Traveled to Lisbon ~ Portugal ~ Europe
Crystal was really great to work with, especially during a pandemic. We knew that we wanted to "travel", but also knew that we couldn't physically travel right now. Crystal set us up with a virtual tour of Lisbon, Portugal, where our tour guide was actually in Lisbon and we had a live view of what she saw. We were able to ask questions and interact with her, just as if we were there in person. It gave us a great little "getaway" without having to actually go anywhere during the pandemic.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Crystal Teter responded:
It was so fun finding and setting up your virtual tour. Can't wait to get you booked for the real thing!

Incredible Escape

Reviewed By Jem - Columbus, OH | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Crystal was awesome! We were nervous about traveling during a pandemic, but she found us the perfect resort where all of the safety precautions were being taken, and there were no crowds. She also made sure we knew what we had to do before going due to all of the extra COVID requirements. The room was incredible - the nicest we've ever stayed in. Everyone was no nice and honestly grateful to have customers, and we never felt unsafe. We would never have found this on our own. We got to be pampered and spoiled (we even had a butler) and get away for just a bit from this stressful year. It was so nice having the assurance of working with a trusted travel advisor who keeps up on all of the entry and other requirements during this crazy time.

Worry free, stress free vacation!

Reviewed By TCupp - Lancaster, Ohio | Traveled to Maine ~ USA
"Crystal was a god-send. Talk about stress free planning. Before using Crystal's expertise it took me hours of scouring the internet, looking through brochures and asking people questions. This time. . .I was handed a choice of 3 or 4 places to choose from and they were all perfect. Crystal chose a beautiful house in a quiet Maine town perfect for our family's needs. It was close to great restauraunts and beaches and beautiful harbors. We didn't have to lift a finger. She even called us immediately when we hit a little difficulty when we reached our house. Easiest vacation ever."
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Crystal Teter responded:
It was my absolute pleasure to find the perfect vacation home for your family. I am so thrilled that you loved it!
