Iceland-Glacier Hike!
Iceland-Glacier Hike!

Iceland-From the moss covered lava fields in the southwest through the barren highlands in the center, to the soaring fjords in the northwest, Iceland attests to the great diversity of landscapes! This land of fire and ice is a country of sharp contrasts. We hiked down valleys to swim in thermal rivers and hiked up Mýrdalsjökull glacier, all in one day! Seljalandsfoss and Gulfoss waterfalls were simply spectacular! One can actually walk behind Seljalandsfoss falls. In the evening we took a boat excursion into the ocean to see the Aurora Borealis! On our last day, we went to the blue lagoon. Explore the area behind the main pool. The lagoon there is very natural and beautiful! This is one destination for the adventure seeker!

We had a blast in Italy!

Reviewed By Lemon Delight - bolingbrook | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Brinda was great to work with. We received an itinerary along with travel vouchers, train tickets etc. Our trip to Italy was planned with our constant input. Our hotels were great and we saw a lot of Sorrento, Rome, Florence and Venice. We designed the trip with my husbands health needs in mind so we toured from 8-1ish each day. Had a wonderful time meeting our drivers and English speaking tour guides. I would highly recommend the private tour with Brinda.

Vacation Guru

Reviewed By Nancy - Hoffman Estates, IL | Traveled to Africa
I have worked with Brinda at Alpha Travel for several years and every time has been a pleasure. We planned a trip to Africa in 5 weeks time - and with that expedited schedule, Brinda led us step by step to prepare. She also handled all the details, including the entire itinerary. Every vacation that Brinda has handled for my family has been fully thought out and executed -- and every detail covered. What I like about working with Brinda is that she understands what you like to do and then recommends itineraries that fit. When I want to go on vacation, I turn to Brinda every time.

Amazing Experience

Reviewed By Jennifer - Gilberts | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Brinda was AMAZING. We traveled out of the country for the first time and she made us feel so comfortable and took care of everything. When we arrived at the airport she already a shuttle scheduled to take us to our hotel. All of our tours were pre-scheduled which saves us a lot of time. She was able to work with our budget and I have appreciated all of her hard work.

Stress free, Italian adventure!

Reviewed By kbjb - Chicago, IL | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
This was our first time using a travel agent to plan our vacation, and to say we were nervous about it would be an understatement. However, after working with Brinda, I can say without hesitation that I would utilize her services again. She did a great job listening to what we would like to do for our tours and booked through reputable tour agencies. We also very much appreciated her suggestions on what to do and see on our “free days.” She took all the guess work out of how we were going to get places by booking transportation to each place which made the entire experience stress free. Before we left, she had given us a very detailed outline of what we would be doing each day which was appreciated and even included a couple of little gifts. There was even an incident that occurred while we were abroad, where weather was impacting the time of our tour and Brinda made sure to get a hold of us to let us know what was happening. We would recommend her to anyone planning a trip!

Best Italy trip!

Reviewed By A. Rivi - Pleasant Prairie, WI | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Brinda is a gem! She was highly recommended & we are more than happy & grateful for her services. She is very detail oriented, clear & concise, paid close attention to what we were looking for, & delivered as promised. She also made herself available, even while she was traveling herself! advised us not to hesitate to call for any questions or concerns, but there was no need for that, everything went as planned.

She also had sent us a gift that we found very useful during our travel - totally unexpected on our part and very grateful that she had thought about it.

I highly recommend her and will definitely be using her for our future travels.

Brinda was superb to work with. She put together a travel itinerary that was exactly what we wanted, answered all our questions and stayed with us through the entire trip. That included responding to midnight texts! Our trip went very smoothly thanks to all the support we received from people whom Brinda had lined up at every point.

We have already asked Brinda to help us with another trip and I have recommended her to a colleague.

Perfect trip!

Reviewed By Lisa - Buffalo Grove, Illinois | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Brinda helped us with a recent two week trip to Italy. The trip turned out to be fabulous due to Brinda’s expert advice. We were especially pleased with the tours that she recommended. Each was led by an extremely knowledgeable guide in the subject field, which included art historians as well as archeologists. Our transportation and transfers were also perfect. Everything went smoothly and we had no problems moving from city to city, in spite of the language difference. We were always met by an English speaker guide or driver at each destination. The ease of our trip is especially noteworthy as we were a party of six, thus requiring larger vehicles for all transfers.

Best Trip!!!....Until the next one!

Reviewed By Erica - Chicago, Illinois | Traveled to Singapore ~ Singapore ~ East and Southeast Asia
I have been using Brinda and Alpha Travel for my vacation travels for almost 10 years. I give her an idea on where I’d like to visit and she always provides me with 3 or 4 different itineraries with different suggestions. She knows what I am looking for when I go out of town, I know I am in excellent hand and don’t have to worry about anything....except packing my bags. She plans it all; from transfers to and from airport to the best quality hotels in prime location. She will always plan a day tour and give suggestions on what you should see. You will always get her honest opinion and I have never been disappointed. Can’t wait to book my next trip with her.
