Large Group Travel Expert

Each traveler is unique and it is my greatest pleasure to help craft a trip that makes vacation dreams come true.

Having lived around the world, I've had many opportunities to explore the Pacific, Caribbean, U.S. and Europe.

  • on the island of Guam
  • St. Thomas, France
  • Switzerland
  • NJ
  • PA
  • NC 

Those experiences, plus constant coursework and continued travel to update my knowledge of tour operators, hotels, and cruise lines, has allowed me to gather information to apply to each traveler's tastes and desires.

Family vacations, multi-generational trips, group travel, honeymoons, faith-based trips and couples get-aways are my passion. Whether you are considering an ocean cruise, a river cruise, a guided tour or a unique independent trip, I'll work with your tastes, budget and comfort level to find the best experience for you.

Multi-generational and group trips can be especially trying and time-consuming for a group leader. When working with me, you can relax while I;

  • plan the itinerary
  • gather everyone's information
  • complete documents
  • answer questions
  • emain available to assist you throughout your travel

Over the past five years, I've helped plan not only family reunions, but also Chamber of Commerce, church group, adult continuing education, high school and high school reunion trips to places like the Caribbean, Turkey, Greece, Israel, Ireland, Scotland, Hungary, Austria and Germany.

If my own travel history and years of experience aren't enough to make you feel secure, I am also an Accredited Cruise Counselor, certified by International Air Transport Association, and have Destination Specialist designations for Costa Rica, Hawaii, Alaska, Vancouver, Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Seaworld, Universal Studios and Disney, in addition to many ocean and river cruise lines.

I'm constantly updating my knowledge through online courses, site inspections and my own travel.

Let me put my experience to work for you!

What do my clients have to say?

William D. of Morrisville, NC wrote: "We have traveled extensively and tried to plan a trip on our own. The help you gave us was invaluable in selecting the right mix of airlines, hotels, tours and travel insurance. The airfare we finally selected had better connections and was lower cost than anything we were able to find on our own. We were returning in January when cold weather was causing massive delays in the US. It was reassuring to get your email the day before we left Ho Chi Minh City. You checked our route via Tokyo and Dulles to Raleigh and assured us that we would not likely encounter delays. Thank you again, for your help and assistance in getting our trip planned right."

Title was appropriate

Reviewed By ocean - Hickory, North Carolina | Traveled to Rhine Valley ~ Germany ~ Europe
Noelle did a good job with the pre planning segment of our trip; however she was not fully engaged with the group as a whole. She did not travel with the group to and from our destination and was not fully engaged with the group while we were there.
Noelle Wachter responded:
I'm sorry you felt that way. My role was actually not to be the group leader, which is why I wasn't flying with the group. The group leader had to cancel due to health reasons and I just stepped in since I was already going. My role was to be sure your bookings were accurate. I ate meals, went on daily tours and sat in the lounge with different people in the group constantly, plus organized a private dinner twice. I'm not sure how else I could have engaged with the group other than the flights?

Breathtakingly beautiful mountains.

Reviewed By Frances - Hickory, NC | Traveled to Calgary ~ Alberta ~ Canada
Follows up very well. Shows concern about needs and questions.
Expects travelers to do their own research online for details: weather, clothing,
trip details, and info on her personal website. Some people are not proficient with this and feel uninformed. Trip was also a bit too demanding for some who maybe were not forewarned enough.
Trip was all it was advertised to be. Good, well informed guide who took very good care of everyone.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Noelle Wachter responded:
Frances, thank you for your review. However, I'm baffled about the comment about expecting travelers to do research online. We had 2 group meetings where the itinerary was presented in detail and documents including weather averages for each city were handed out. In addition, I mailed a printed document with weather details, currency, packing suggestions, etc. to every trip participant 4 weeks before travel. We discussed all these details twice in person and I am always available by phone.

Our experience with Noelle was excellent-top notch from beginning to end. She was accommodating on times and where to meet with us and took as long as we needed to understand everything. Also, when I had questions, she promptly answered them in e-mails...and believe me, I had questions!

Our trip was great! Noelle helped us plan and pick out the things we wanted to do, as well as make suggestions on things that might work better. Thank goodness she suggested a tour in Vancouver where we had an all day wait for a flight home.

We would highly recommend Noelle to anyone who needs a travel agent. She's very knowledgeable with planning trips. We certainly will contact her in the future if we need to plan a trip.

Israel trip - December 2015 - January 2016

Reviewed By Carol - Hickory, North Carolina | Traveled to
The trip far exceeded my expectations. I never felt uneasy and always felt completely safe!! I learned a great deal from the leaders and my fellow travelers! It was apparent from start to finish that Noelle had a hand in the details! Flights were well coordinated. The guides were always on time, ready to roll. The bus was comfortable. The accommodations in all three hotels were wonderful. The diversity from the desert Oasis Resort to the kabutz by the Sea of Galalee was perfect. Food was great! But the best part, by far, was the leadership! David's faith in Jesus and passion for Israel and the scripture lessons brought the trip to the holy land to life. I cannot thank David enough for all the preparation and prayer that went in to each day. He and Boaz complimented each other in an amazing way....blending faith and culture! It was an experience I will never forget!

From the start (nearly six months ago) to the finish of our planning, Noelle was on top of every detail. Her emails indicated she was working on our behalf late at night and even on the weekends. I can not think of anything she could have done to improve her service for our family.

I am one who enjoys making travel plans and doing all the research myself, but getting Noelle onboard and letting her share her expertise, was one of the best decisions I could have made!

Reviewed By Jane M. - Durham,NC | Traveled to
I cannot thank you enough for how you cared for us through our trip - from the beginning to the end! We had a wonderful time and our only hiccup was the plane departure. The Royalton was a great fit for us. We chose to primarily stay just at the resort and relax, enjoy the pool and read. Robbie and Emily went on a sailboat ride one day but other than that, we found our favorite pool, made friends with Estaban and Diego who cared for us well, soaked in the sun and pool and enjoyed some good reads! The food was good and the weather was great! We enjoyed the gym and some water aerobics too! I only went in the ocean once. There was some seaweed but it wasn't awful and didn't smell. I just more enjoyed looking at the ocean and being in the pool. Robbie told them we were celebrating our anniversary and we came back to the room to find the Jacuzzi tub drawn with rose petals sprinkled and a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Our 25th wedding anniversary is in November. I would highly recommend it to others as well as recommending our wonderful travel agent! And, what a nice treat to come home to a bottle of nice wine. Certainly unnecessary but greatly appreciated!

Noelle ensures she knows her client by asking probing questions. She then offers a variety of suggestions, pointing out the possible pros and cons of each. She discusses alternatives in depth with you. Once you make a decision she reviews your decisions to ensure there are no misunderstandings before she books anything. She ensures you have all the reservation information, required documents (up-to-date Passport, etc.) and suggests and helps you with trip insurance when warranted. And definitely over and above, she tracks every flight that every client is going on and calls the client if there are delays or complications, which she helps resolve.

Our tour guide took care of our lunch and the hotels provided breakfast and dinner, so we didn't have to worry about anything. We had an awesome time getting to know the other people on our trip, including our tour guide (he was full of dad-jokes, and they were awesome), who Noelle knew personally. Thank you, Noelle, for taking care of everything and making our trip unforgettable!

Awesome Planning equals an Awesome Experience

Reviewed By John - Charlotte,N.C. | Traveled to
Give credit where credit is truly due. From the time I decided to go to Israel to the time I got home I never worried about anything. Noelle kept me informed of what I needed to give her and by when, every step of the way. There were absolutely no unpleasant surprises or experiences.I had one of the most incredible, informative and fun trips I have ever encounterd.The flights , the transfers , the advanced information was spot on and timely. The hotel accommodations and tour guide where exactly as I had expected and hoped for. Thank you for an incredible experience!!! I am looking forward to working with you again.

Our honeymoon exceeded all expectations!

Reviewed By SatisfiedCustomer - Fayetteville, NC | Traveled to
The most helpful, professional travel agent we could have asked for! After explaining to Noelle what my wife and I were looking for in a honeymoon, she immediately presented us with several options right up our alley. She spent a lot of time helping us to narrow our options and getting us the best deal. We were both looking for a quiet, beautiful beach destination and in the end decided on Bucuti and Tara in Aruba. When we checked in, there was a care package from Noelle waiting on us in our room. And of course it turned out to be the vacation of our dreams. Thanks Noelle!

Advise that honeymoons are planned by travel agent.

Reviewed By Aaron Miller - Shelby, NC | Traveled to
Without a doubt made the planning aspect easy. No worries about agenda, booking, or anything except making sure I was at airport on time. Well worth going through a travel agent such as Noelle. We were very pleased to work with her. Her assistance throughout the process from recommendations to the final booking was exactly what I was looking for and needed during the stressful time of wedding planning. Thank you Noelle for everything you did. Cannot wait to go through you again to make a return trip to Jamaica!

Great trip. She walked me through all of the decisions.

Reviewed By Tom - Shelby, NC | Traveled to
Once we told Noelle where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do, she gave us plenty of options that would have taken me hours to do. Once we decided on our trip, there many other decisions to make and she guided us through each one. When we had questions, she got back to us quickly and made the planning process pretty stress-free. I would definitely use her again!

Attention to all the details

Reviewed By Jim - Hickory, NC | Traveled to
Noelle recently coordinated our 10 day tour of Madrid and southern Spain which involved air, train, and rental car transportation, 4 different hotels, multiple destinations, guided tours, etc. So many things could have gone wrong, but due to Noelle's exceptional planning and forethought, this trip was literally flawless. She thinks of everything and I can't imagine traveling in the future without her assistance. Fantastic job!!

43 sites visited

Reviewed By Dorrie - Hickory, NC USA | Traveled to
Excellent trip. Our Jewish guide knew the history and the stories. We actually got to walk where Jesus walked (100% guaranteed) the paving stones to the Synagogue. Learned a great deal of detail about each site. Good walking shoes absolutely. Israel is rocky, sandy, and very uneven. Battery operated fans are good and so are wet scarfs. Food is excellent and plentiful but different from USA. Documentation available from every site. The people are friendly and helpful (bus driver took my husband (who walks with a cane) under his wing and protection (Israeli army) is everywhere. We even went to Golan Heights and Palestine. Everything is very close together. Loved this trip.

Couldn't have planned our trip without her!

Reviewed By Monica - Hickory, North Carolina | Traveled to
My husband and I could not have planned our honeymoon without the help of Noelle! We traveled to Cancun the last week of January 2016. We gave her our price range and she provided us with multiple hotel options. She outlined all of the details for us giving us the pros and cons of each resort, yet in the end not pressuring us to pick one resort over the other. She always responded in a timely manner and went above and beyond to help us. We even had to contact her over the holidays to switch our return flight due to my husband's job. She took care of it in a timely manner. She also helped us plan our excursions and did the research on the one's that had better reviews than others. We were able to contact her with any questions while we were gone on our trip as well. Overall, I would highly recommend Noelle to anyone! She goes above and beyond what her job outlines and my husband and I will definitely use her again to plan trips in the future.

responsive to changes

Noelle was great about informing us that we could upgrade or change our seats. Since this was a group trip, I found her proactive information to be better service than usual. My other group trips were not helpful with seat changes or upgrades.

Relax, Enjoy. Noelle takes care of the details!

Reviewed By first time cruise lovers 5 star experience - hickory NC | Traveled to
Noelle organized a cruise for us (3 mothers and daughters). She provided a great overview and helped us decide what we wanted to do. Getting 3 busy, working moms to make a joint decision and meet a deadline is not easy. She gave gentle reminders as deadlines loomed and worked beautifully with us. One of the moms has already had Noelle book her family vacation. I know our family will use her expertise to plan the next vacation. She actually checked in with us on our drive to FL and checked to make sure the cruise ship met our expectations when we checked in. We all really appreciated her extra effort and care.

Noelle helped me plan two cruises this year which was so awesome because I'm a working mom of three! She was extremely patient in answering all my questions while providing me with all the available choices and best pricing! Noelle is so knowledgeable and is always thinking about what would work best for my family. And I'm so grateful that she follows up and sends reminders so I feel that I dont have to worry about staying on top of everything. It is great to have her as a resource and get her recommendations. Noelle provides stellar service!
