She listens to what type of vacation your looking forward, works with us and listen to what we would like on a vacation. She is always timely with her recommendations for travel and emails are concise and very detailed, providing various choices which help us make our final decision on our vacations. We have used her all of our trips to Euriope - Italy, Germany, Fraance, and Austra. Helpuful and caring- While in Germany my husband John Gehring's mom passed away. She work with our bus tour guide as a team and arrange for us to return to US as soon as possible and expedited all the paperwork and made our hotel, plane changes quickly and were able to return the safest and quickest way possible. This is a difficult time to be in another country one family members pass away and she made our lives so much easier. She helped gettting the paperwork in place and so glad we had purchased travel insurance. Way to go Sharon she is a 5 Star Travel Agent for sure!

A thoughtful planner for a smooth trip!

Reviewed By Carol - Antioch, CA | Traveled to
Sharon planned every detail of our complex trip which included train trips, foreign airports, hotel, and all the connections, including a cruise, in between. For each aspect of the trip, she gave us specific recommendations for how to proceed, what to look for and how to get from one area to another. In addition, she suggested safety tips for certain areas such as keeping luggage in view at all times. This was such a fun and smooth trip, thanks to Sharon's expertise and thoughtfulness!

The best trip of my life!

Reviewed By Sonia - Hayward, California | Traveled to
Last summer I reached out to Sharon to help me plan a 2-week solo trip to Italy. We discussed timing, my budget and what I wanted to get out of the trip. She very promptly proposed an itinerary, and I was thrilled with her recommendations. She arranged everything: flights, train ticket, hotel bookings, drivers, excursions and even printed maps which highlighted great restaurants, shops and cafes. From the moment I arrived at SFO to catch my flight, everything ran smoothly. I started in Florence where she selected a great hotel with a charming view of the city and a 5 minute walk to Il Duomo. Excellent location and no need to drive. I loved my Skip the Line tickets which saved me a lot of time at the museums. If I had tried to arrange the museum visits on my own, I would have lost precious time. My trip included a day hike through Cinque Terre (excellent!!!), a 3-day stay in a medieval town in the wine country, Radda in Chianti, a train ride into Naples, a wonderful drive and boat ride through the Amalfi Coast and a relaxing stay in beautiful Sorrento. The staff at the hotels was friendly and helpful. She provided tips about places to visit or activities that the locals engage in which allowed me to experience the authentic Italian lifestyle. Sharon would periodically check in on me to ensure that all of my needs were being met. The customer service that I received from her was simply impeccable. I work long, long hours and never would have had the time or resources to plan this type of trip. I give Sharon an A+ for setting up this vacation of my dreams. I intend to return to Italy to explore further and will not hesitate to reach out to Sharon again.

Lake Como Trip

Reviewed By Claire - Berkeley, CA | Traveled to
Sharon was wonderful! She made great suggestions on what to do and see and places to stay. They were perfect. I couldn't have been happier with the hotels and events she booked. Sharon even wrote a special note to hotel proprietors asking them to give us special care -- and they did! Our trip wouldn't have been nearly as enjoyable without her expertise. She knows Italy so well and also understands her customers!

Well Planned Vacation

Reviewed By Linda - Hayward, CA | Traveled to
If you are looking forward to a carefree, well-planned vacation, Sharon is the person you want. Her specialty is travel in Italy and because of her own extensive travel there, she knows the country in all its beautiful turns. She also speaks the language, which is an added bonus. I have had the pleasure of experiencing several trips she has planned and, and her attention to detail from lodging, to transportation and transfers, and knowledge of the not so well traveled tourist sites is refreshing. She has a wealth of information and her number one goal is the comfort and ease of her clients.

Every trip Sharon planned was memorable

Reviewed By Sharon - Hayward, CA | Traveled to
Sharon goes above and beyond when planning trips. Several trips were to a place I had been before, but I had wonderful new experiences each time. The hotels she selected were always exceptional and restaurants and tours were perfect. The people she worked with, ie tour guides, provided us with wonderful experiences and they provided so much valuable information. One thing that really stands out about Sharon is that she is so knowledgable about every place we went. I felt so comfortable everywhere because of her expertise. I have recommended Sharon to friends and family and have only heard the most wonderful responses from them. Sharon is very professional-she has information about every aspect of travel and if she doesn't know something at first, she researches it and gets back to you immediately with accurate information. I would highly recommend Sharon Oldham to anyone!
