Laurie is a definite 5 - I give Laurie my ideas, requests, and price range, etc. and she researches and follows through with exactly what I am looking for. She answered all my questions and offered advice and perspective. She was prompt and thorough and made sure I had all my travel documents. We had a fantastic trip with no worries about minor details.

Planes, Trains & Auto Rentals
We flew to Niagra Falls, took a train (sleeper car) to Nova Scotia, flew to Bar Harbor, Maine to see more falls colors. It was a trip of a lifetime.
We are unaccustomed to making our own travel plans, and when we didn’t know where to find our shuttle, she calmly told us where to meet them. Knowing she “had our backs” was a huge peace-of-mind.
Helped us find accommodations within our budget. It was a delightful, memorable experience.
I'm was happy to plan your anniversary trip. So glad you had a wonderful time. I look forward to assisting you in your future travel needs also.
