Agent Specializing in Europe and Caribbean

I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to Europe on multiple occasions and it’s such an adventure! History surrounds you in Europe. Cities dating back centuries and the architecture stays true to it’s roots. Cruising the European river ways, sleeping in snow igloos in Norway, independent and guided vacations, small Weddings, Honeymoons, family heritage trips, outdoor adventures, cultural food and beverage experiences, searching for architectural and historical wonders, Religious Pilgrimages, private yachting, or simply relaxing on a beach are all my areas of expertise. Going to new countries and experiencing the local culture has a profound effect on everyone. It’s also one of the best ways to relax and improve our outlook on life. I want your vacation to be entirely unique and personalized, and I will focus on your interests and goals when booking your next trip.

He is a great choice for a travel agent!!!

Reviewed By Marie - St Louis, MO | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I have worked with Rob as my travel agent for years. He has booked many trips for us. Rob gives helpful information that you would not find if you were booking your own vacation online. We have referred many of our friends to him. He is a great choice for a travel agent!!!

The Secret Weapon!

Reviewed By John OLeary - Saint Louis, MO | Traveled to Los Angeles ~ California ~ USA
I began working with Rob 7 years ago....and he has booked 100s of air travel tickets, hotels nights and car transports for my business trips. He's always a delight, prompt and accurate in his service. In addition to booking all my travel nationally, he takes care of all international travel AND (perhaps his greatest assist to me) is when there are travel delays he works creatively and efficiently to find a route that will work.

A wonderful experience

Reviewed By Bill - St. Louis | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
It was a pleasure to work with Rob. He helped us plan a wonderful trip and worked with us to find flights with easy connections. When an unexpected delay occurred on our return trip, he booked us on the next flight. Having the boarding passes sent to our phone made the connecting flight hassle free.

Best travel agent ever

Reviewed By Nancy - St. Louis Mo | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Rob has guided us through many trips over the last five
years. Most recently he arranged an Alaskan cruise followed by a land tour through Alaska with time at the end to visit family in Seattle. Rob arranged all of the travel including airplane tickets, hotels, transfers and car rental. He always finds the most reasonable and convenient air flights. The hotel in Vancouver was within walking distance of the cruise pier which was perfect. Most importantly, he follows up if anything happens and makes calls on our behalf if there is an issue. He is wonderful to work with throughout the entire process of planning and traveling.

Our trip was last minute and he was able to get everything we needed.

My husband and I have been working with Rob for about 13 years and he has provided us with great customer service in every way possible. He has helped us with planning and booking about 13 cruises, all were great in every way with no unexpected surprises along the way. Our most recent cruise was on Anthem of the Seas in June and it was the best one we have been on.

We moved from the St. Louis area in 2005 and have tried travel professionals in our new locations but we quickly came back to Rob. We would highly recommend him to friends and family.

Our family has trusted Rob with our travel bookings for over fifteen years. It started when we needed to re-create a honeymoon that another agent had screwed up - and do it in a week. Rob did.

Not only a skilled professional, but a nice guy as well. Highly recommended.

Care-Free Travel!

Reviewed By Jan and Rich - Aurora, MO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Rob has been our travel agent since 2008. He has always been responsive to our travel interests, suggesting tours or cruises that might fit into our schedule and budget. He does extensive research regarding a chosen travel package, and arranges it all, from transportation to the airport, flights, hotels, side excursions, tips, and transportation back home. He has been very patient when we ask and re-ask questions, which we unfortunately do a lot!

We recently needed to interrupt a trip due to a death in the family, and Rob initiated the process of getting a refund using our purchased travel insurance, in addition to arranging the necessary flights home.

We know that our trip will flow smoothly when Rob has arranged it. There are no surprises about cost, no confusion when arriving at our destination. He sends us copies and receipts of everything we need for our trip.

Great time in Italy and Germany

Reviewed By Chris - St. Charles, Mo. | Traveled to Europe
My wife and I travelled with another couple to Italy and Germany for two weeks. It was our first experience using a travel agent, and we really didn't know what to expect. We met with Rob probably 3 or 4 times over a course of 4-6 months to 'fine tune' what we wanted to do. Rob had first hand experience and made many suggestions, and provided us information to help us make various decisions.

When we were all done planning, I felt it was a fairly intricate trip, with the way we planned to travel, sites we wanted to see and our accommodations.

Our final meeting with Rob before the trip was fantastic. He had folders for each couple, which included airline tickets, hotel reservations, train tickets, car reservations, event tickets and passes - and they were all color coded for easy identification.

Rob nailed it. Our trip went perfectly and we had a great time.
