Luxury Travel Specialist (Europe Focus)

River cruising in Europe is inspiring.
River cruising in Europe is inspiring.

For many, living in luxury is the opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. But from my perspective, luxury also reflects a state of mind where you can be at total ease by leaving the details to the professionals.  

I focus on designing unique opportunities for those people who are looking to experience the best this world have to offer. That means I not only get to know my clients well, but I leave no stone unturned in building the perfect vacation escape. 

For more than 30 years, I have created more oohs and ahhs than I can count. A vacation in Europe, sparing no detail or amenity, is the experience of a lifetime. Whether it is a stylish river cruise down a majestic river, a week-long stay in a five-star hotel in a major city or a luxurious cruise of the Mediterranean, my goal is to design an experience fit for a king or queen.

I am fortunate to have traveled extensively through Europe, sharing my journeys to some of the world’s most beautiful cities like Paris, London, and Amsterdam, and many off the beaten path destinations as well.  I use my personal experiences to provide in-depth planning and advising for my clients who wish to travel to this part of the world to enjoy the finest in cuisine, art, architecture, history, entertainment and more.

Travel is more than getting on a plane or boarding a ship. It is about escaping your daily routine, letting your spirit wander, and not having to sweat the small stuff. You’ll have no worries when I design your vacation.

I can't thank Carol enough.

Reviewed By Carey - Leawood, KS | Traveled to
This trip would not have been nearly as successful without Carol's help. She was spot on with all of her recommendations. She was more than willing to tell us exactly what we needed to do with regards to certain decisions, but she was also willing to guide us and advise us regarding other decisions. In other words, she would present the positives and negatives and allow us to make the call, realizing that all travelers are not the same. Her knowledge and experience was invaluable in the planning. Also, Carol was very good about proactively contacting me when I needed to either make a decision or complete paperwork. In addition, when possible she completed forms and made reservations to help lighten my load. Overall, I can't say enough about how Carol made this trip what it was. There is not one thing I can think of to offer as constructive criticism. I wouldn't have changed a thing about this trip, and have Carol to thank for that.

No one better than Carol!

Reviewed By Dee - Las Vegas, NV | Traveled to
Carol is truly a professional - really knows her "stuff". So friendly - you feel so very comfortable working on a trip with her. She has planned so many trips for me and there never was a clich. When Carol handles my trips I don't have a care or worry cause I know everything is handled perfectly. She goes out of her way to help you and can answer any questions you may have. What an asset she is to the company.

She had experience in the area we were visiting!

Reviewed By Mike and Laura Curran - Overland Park, KS | Traveled to
Carol was such a pleasure to work with and she was so helpful in all aspects of our trip. We had absolutely no trouble on our trip except for missing a flight which Carol did not even set up. I was too cheap and bought my own airfare, that was a mistake. I couldn't say enough about the work Carol did. She was so interesting to talk to throughout the process and even the debrief talk we had after the trip.

An Amazing Trip..Perfectly Planned!

Reviewed By Jamie - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Carol did an amazing job planning our family trip to Italy! There were 5 of us including our 2 teenage sons. She arranged the perfect mix of tours and activities to please all of us. I can't say enough about how responsive she was to our requests...right up until the last minute when we had flight issues. She made sure our driver and guide new of the changes to our flight and they were right on time to pick us up at the airport. I would definitely recommend Carol to anyone planning a trip to Italy! We made family memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks Carol!

Planning was fun.

Reviewed By rjb - chicago, ill. | Traveled to
Carol did a great job organizing our trip with many options after we told her what we were looking for on our Alaskan trip. Everything went well without a hitch. All the excursions we chose and did were terrific. All the guides were very well educated on their trips with us and also very friendly. Would go back again. The cruise was also very good too. Princess has got it down very well in Alaska, just like Carol told us months ago. Thanks Carol for all your help and input. Bob and Anita. Everything Carol did for us made the whole trip easy for us from start to finish.

Carol did an outstanding job creating a vacation experience for us--two days in Amsterdam, a Viking river cruise down the Rhine River, and two days in Lucerne, Switzerland--every day was an adventure, and every day created memories that will last a lifetime... I can't say enough good things about Carol, Acendas Travel and Viking River Cruises--first class!

Carol made our trip so effortless and wonderful

Reviewed By Esther - Chicago, IL | Traveled to
Carol made sure that the details for our trip were taken care of from beginning to end; ground transportation. hotel in Rome, private tours, cruise destinations, ship staterooms. Since this was our first cruise, she took extra time to help us with the details that made the onboarding process effortless and we could begin the second part of our vacation. When we go to book another trip, we will definitely contact Carol again.
