There are lessons to complete, drop down forms for your use, note taking guides and resource guides.

This is a serious business being responsible for clients emotions and money. Don't drop either one. This school is the border, then you can fill in the middle, like a jig saw puzzle, with ongoing training by suppliers, countries, cities, islands and properties.

Ann, You are so generous in your review. It was a joy to help you. I hope you enjoyed the "little" surprise at the end!!! I can take the blame for some things, but not weather or earthquakes!! That was over the top. Thanks

Awesome River trip

Reviewed By Pat - NH | Traveled to Europe
Everything was superb! Excellent service and we loved the river cruise. Emerald is the perfect company to cruise with. They thought of all the possibilities. We did have to leave the boat because the water level was "critical", but they had another boat on the other side and we took a bus there. It was seamless. Our cruise Director came with us so she kept everything on track. All in all a wonderful time was had by all. Thanks for everything

Can't say enough about Sharon

Reviewed By Ryan - Shoreline | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
Sharon is absolutely amazing!
We were in search of a river cruise in Germany and thought we knew what we wanted. Sharon was able to open our eyes on more than one cruise line and shared about 6 of them - she knew all of the owners too! She showed us pictures of the boats, explained the themes and what each cruise lines specialized in, and ultimately helped us pick the best cruise line for us.
We got the best price, best package, best time slot, best boat. We had a really wonderful time on what we felt was a first class trip.
Sharon is very thoughtful, respectful, and definitely what you want out of an agent, "helpful". She was our birddog as well in our preparation for our travel - asking us questions to make sure we were prepared, checking in with us on other aspects of our trip that we planned ourselves to make sure it all was going to work right.
She also helped us out with getting the reasonable amount of travel insurance coverage.
I can't say enough about Sharon!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sharon Emerson responded:
Thank you so much, Ryan. You were a joy to work with. That was a great report. I try to put myself on your trip to make sure all the points are covered. I just wasn't "in" your suitcase. Waiting to hear what your next plan is.

An agent you can trust

Reviewed By k.yama1948 - Seattle, WA | Traveled to Amsterdam ~ Netherlands ~ Europe
Sharon has always been the ultimate professional when handling my travel arrangements. I have used Sharon for more than 10 years and there is a good reason for this. I think the major reason for Sharon's success is her ability to communicate with her client and keep them appraised of the situation regarding travel reservations.
Sharon is very thorough and detail oriented which makes for a very pleasant travel experience.
Sharon's attitude is always upbeat which carries over to her clients. I am a "glass half full" kind of person and so is Sharon. Her positive attitude can turn a negative situation into a bearable one.
Simply put, she is the only travel expert that I would trust to handle all my travel needs.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sharon Emerson responded:
Thank you so much. What a joy you have been to work with and your whole group. You are more like family now. Through thick and thin you have been faithful and I appreciate you. Don't stop now. Your retirement is just beginning!!!

She always does extensive research for best places and rates. When I had questions or concerns, she was on top of it and never tired of all my calls or emails...I encourage others to contact Sharon for all travel plans!

Adventure travel made easy!

Reviewed By Annie - Port Townsend | Traveled to Santiago ~ Chile ~ South America
Sharon was an absolute pleasure to work with!! I was planning a trip to Chile with a friend from the east coast and Sharon booked the flights for each of us to meet in Houston and fly to Chile together. A storm threatened to close down Logan airport when my friend was scheduled to fly, and Sharon helped my friend change flights and get out of town before the storm hit. A real bonus was that Sharon arranged for out hotel room in Santiago for our arrival and departure dates and gave us contact information for a local agent who could give us insight into various activities and places of interest in Santiago. I intend to call Sharon the next time I go on an international vacation!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sharon Emerson responded:
Thank you very much. That was a bit of a nail-biter. It happens sometimes but glad it all worked out and you had a great time. Talk to you soon

Once in a lifetime experience!

Reviewed By Happy traveler - Seattle Washington | Traveled to Africa
Where do I start? Several years ago my wife and I wanted to plan a trip to Africa and take our grandson to see the World-vision child that we sponsor there. This was going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we want to do everything just right. After talking with Sharon and letting her know of our plans she took over and scheduled all the flights places to stay excursion trips along with two fantastic safaris. We had one additional week available and Sharon planned a fantastic stay in London with a day excursion to Paris all in all we could’ve asked for anything better. The memories we have of that trip will stay for a lifetime .
Then on another occasion my wife and I got to go on a Mediterranean cruise with a number of other couples we knew and Sharon plan the whole trip we all met up in Spain got on the crew ship and spent the next 10 days having a blast.
I see Sharon as a true example of what a travel agent should be honest, diligent, detailed. She is the best!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sharon Emerson responded:
Thank you so much. Travel memories are the best.

Sharon is efficient and great at finding deals and opportunities to travel any where one wants to go.

Mom’s 80th Birthday Cruise

Reviewed By Kimber - Everett, WA | Traveled to Caribbean
Planning for a cruise was overwhelming for me. My mother was turning 80 and I wanted to do something really special for her. Sharon knew which cruises would be suitable for our desires, where the best cabins were for the price, the best excursions to take and which ports we might enjoy the most. She helped with the cruise booking, insurance (which I am thankful I paid extra for) flight and hotel information. We had a great time. I’m so thankful for Sharon’s help.

Sharon Emerson responded:
Thank you very much. Those are special memories. You are most welcome and I hope you can go again.
