NORA IS THE BEST!!

Reviewed By Kimberly - New Brighton, MN | Traveled to Mexico
Nora has been helping me with my travel arrangements for over 10 years and she is absolutely THE BEST! I can always count on Nora to find the perfect destination with great accommodations - and at a price I can afford. Nora is so helpful and knowledgeable - she definitely knows Mexico and the Caribbean - my favorite places to visit! She always goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes well. And, she also asks for feedback after the trip to make sure everything went as planned. I know people who try to plan their own international trips on the internet, but are very disappointed with how it turns out. I don't have to worry about being disappointed...because Nora helps arrange my trips. She's awesome!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Nora Blum responded:
Thank you for your kind words. It certainly does help that I've been to many of your favorite places, and I do try to make sure everything goes well on all of our trips.

Fabulous 15th Anniversary Trip!

Reviewed By Merkster - Lakeville, MN. | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
My husband and I knew we wanted to take a trip of a lifetime for our 15th wedding anniversary and for the first time decided to seek the help of a travel agent. Nora had come recommended and we are so glad we sought her guidance and expertise!

Nora was extremely helpful and knowledgeable during all phases of planning. She was patient when I couldn't make up my mind on hotels and locations and was a steady and calm force offering thoughtful feedback and pro/con arguments for various choices we had to make. She encouraged us to stick with our original Costa Rica plan when we considered alternative destinations, and I'm so glad she offered her genuine advice. She knew what we were looking for in this vacation and made the best recommendation for us.
She also offered sage advice to not fill up our vacation with excess excursions but enjoy the luxurious amenities of our hotels. All along I felt she was trying to provide us exactly the kind of trip we desired and that's what we got! :)

Nora is the only person I work with to help with my travel arrangements! She is super responsive, and very patient with all the questions I have. I never have had an issue with any of the trips I've booked through her - everything goes smoothly - and I trust her experience and guidance.

Vienna--Our great experience with Nora Blum and TL

Reviewed By Heather - St. Paul | Traveled to Vienna ~ Austria ~ Europe
I have recommended Nora to many friends over the years. She is absolutely wonderful to work with. She recently helped us book a dream trip to Austria to visit the Advent Markets in Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck. We made our plans about 10 months in advance of travel, and as usually happens that far out, the flights through Chicago to Vienna from MSP changed. She quickly notified us, and suggested alternatives. We ended up saving money on a one-night layover that was originally planned, and found earlier flights home. Nora is the consummate professional--she always returns inquiries quickly, and she is creative about meeting needs in terms of times and dates of travel. She also assisted us with booking a very large tour to the UK in 2014, and she did an excellent job managing all of the different needs of our group, as well as some difficult personalities! In short, she is amazing!

It has been a pleasure working with Nora over the years. My husband and I have taken several major vacations with Nora's assistance, including a tour of China and Tibet and a river cruise through Europe. Nora is a wealth of information and has guided us through these very important trips each step of the way. She is professional, patient and thorough. Because of her extensive background, she has made suggestions in advance that we would have never thought of to make our vacation a better experience. She anticipates potential road blocks or problems and offers suggestions for resolution. You can't get that kind of service and advice from an on-line vacation source.
