A wonderful cruise!!

Reviewed By jackie - huntertown, IN | Traveled to Caribbean
We have planned several trips with Fran and we have always been very pleased with those vacation plans she has made for us. We just got back from a cruise which she planned for us and it did not disappoint. When we get ready to leave, she provides us with the required travel documents and many tips to make our travel easier.

I have recommended Fran to family and friends in the past and will continue to do so.

Beautiful Trip

Reviewed By Bill & Kim - Columbus, OH | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
For our first trip out of the country, Fran helped us tremendously. She guided us wisely with tips and thoughts we would not have known on our own, and possibly may not have gotten through our own research. Fran learned what we specifically wanted in a trip and directed us to the location that most closely matched our criteria. We were very, very happy with our end result - Turks & Caicos - and it measured up to be everything we were hoping for and expecting!

Cruise Travel Expert

Reviewed By Karin - Fort Wayne, Indiana | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
Wonderful travel agent! Makes all my requests a priority and always makes time to talk me via email and in person. She always makes sure all my documents are in order and nothing has been overlooked, making my travels so much more carefree on my end. We have shared a great client / agent relationship and I continue to look forward to working with her for many years to come. She truly cares about her clients and goes the extra mile to make all the arrangements with their best interests in mind. We have booked many cruises with different cruise ship lines with Fran, she takes the time to ensure all facets of the cruise is covered no matter if it a bargain 4 day getaway or a 14 day exotic (at least for me) voyage. I thank her for making all my travels memorable and stress free. The last cruise we took was on Royal's Brilliance of the Seas out of Tampa, FL and loved it so much that we are going back again in February, 2016.

A Most Inspiring Trip

Reviewed By Glo - Fort Wayne, IN | Traveled to India ~ Central Asia

Fran has planned several trips for me throughout many years. That statement alone should be a clue to how much I appreciate and trust Fran in making each trip a memorable journey. She is thorough, timely, knowledgeable, and a delight to meet with and discuss one's hopes and plans for the planned trip. Lastly,Fran assists one with the details that can be not only confusing but also cumbersome such as obtaining a VISA, train transportation once in a foreign country, and travel insurance.

To all who read this review, I wish you a joyous journey. Mark Twain stated-- "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness".

They are all GREAT!!!

Reviewed By Sandy Frick - Fort Wayne, IN | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Francine Klein (Fran) has been our travel agent for the last 7 or 8 years. She is the best!!! I am totally serious. Fran knows her vacations, the do's and don'ts, the beaches, etc. I have never met a more honest and friendly travel agent like Fran.

Out of all the vacations Fran has booked for us, there was one (1) vacation that we didn't really like, BUT that was our fault. We want one resort and Fran was trying to tell us we really should do another resort. I think the price was a few dollars more, but not much at all. We were not willing to budge and because of that.....the vacation was not good. It rained the whole time and the resort was just "okay". If Fran ever suggest something to you..............take her up on it!!! Since that one vacation, we always let Fran suggest the resort for us and we have LOVED every vacation since!

Francine (Fran) Klein will forever be our travel agent!!! You cannot go wrong. Our family and friends use her as well.

Thank you Fra

Trusted Integrity

Reviewed By Mid-Century Newly Weds - Fort Wayne, Indiana | Traveled to South Pacific
Fran, thank you for being our trusted travel consultant these past years. You make the planning and booking process smooth and effortless for us. The vacations you arrange are well orchestrated and filled with adventure…just the way we like them. Whether we want to hike in another State, drive around Europe, or cruise in an exotic place, we depend on your knowledge of our taste, budget and interests to get us there. We can’t thank you enough for our beautiful, South Pacific wedding and honeymoon. You were a master at coordinating the details of the wedding, the 13 flight legs, beautiful accommodations, and International Date Line navigation.

It is comforting when we set out on a journey that you have the connections, credentials, and the wherewithal to back us up and refine any detail that needs to be addressed. Remember the time I got sick in Italy? You were right there helping us through. You are a true professional. We look forward to you realizing our next travel idea

Working with the best!

Reviewed By Mr. K - Fort Wayne, Indiana | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
I have collaborated with Fran on trips too numerous to remember! She has made arrangements for several large group trips of up to 200 people associated with my work and always has the details organized to perfection. She is also the person on whom I call when I need personal travel help, whether it is for business, family vacations, or those unfortunate emergencies. She has the knowledge of the locations and I never get the "surprise, this nothing like the pictures" that others get when planning their own trips. I have also found the price always reasonable or better than I could get on my own!

Fran will spend the time making it a memorable experience for you with minimal time and effort on your part. If you need something quick at the last minute, Fran will make it happen. I remember needing an emergency flight on a Sunday afternoon and Fran was there for me. I was on a flight within hours - all I had to do was pack my own bag.

With Fran, everything is with kindness and a smile
