Barbara Stevens

White Lake, Michigan Travel Agent

Experience Travel, LLC, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Leisure Travel with an emphasis on the Unique

What started as a passion turned into an avocation and ultimately a career. For me, the right way to start was education so after completing a certified travel course, I continued on, earning a CTA from the Travel Institute and have completed the ACC from CLIA.

Training and years of personal land and cruise experience enrich the perspective. I am a professional leisure travel consultant and my small agency is known for personal service and attention to the details that matter to my clients.

I can plan various types of holidays including:

  • luxury foreign vacations
  • cruises
  • dude ranch experiences
  • special events
  • weekend getaway

Every effort is made to ensure your experience exceeds your expectations and gives you lasting memories and a yearning for "the next time."

Experience the difference!

Dedicated, Personalized, Super Fast Service

Reviewed By Julie - Waterford, MI | Traveled to
Our story is a bit unique. My husband was a Stage IV cancer patient with a poor prognosis. When doctors gave him a hiatus from treatment, we really wanted to take an Alaskan cruise for our upcoming 30th wedding anniversary, but time was not on our side. I vetted several agencies and quickly chose Barb - she was most responsive, knowledgeable and genuine. Barb helped us plan our dream vacation, getting passports and all, and we sailed within weeks. I am generally a very D.I.Y. person, but in this case, I felt I needed expert help - and that is just what we received! With a limited Alaskan travel season, had we not sailed when we did, we sadly would not have had the opportunity. I am so very grateful to Barb for helping us have that amazing time.

Thank you SO much for these generous comments. Had I known earlier that there was a commentary section I would have started reading and responding to them. I vividly recall working with you and your husband and did my best to fulfill this long time dream you had of going to Alaska. It was my privilege to assist and I feel blessed to have been a small part of this dream vacation. Bless you.

You Can't Beat Her Personalized Service

Reviewed By OneCountryPerYear - Bloomfield Hills, MI | Traveled to
Barbara has been my travel agent for more than a decade. In the era of the Internet, it's relatively easy to book a vacation online however a website can't offer you personalized service that a travel agent can. She is incredibly knowledgable since she has ventured to many of the destinations herself. Our working relationship started before I was married and she planned my honeymoon when I got married. Our travel style changed dramatically after the birth of our son but she's been able to keep up with our demands. My son has some food allergies and she always makes sure that the airlines and the hotels are aware of this. Over the years she has gotten to know my likes and dislikes so she knows what to recommend to me. On my trip to Paris, I requested a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower and she made it happen. On our most recent trip to Disney World, she was able to get me the exact room I wanted with the view of the Magic Kingdom. I especially love when she arranges a special welcome surprise in our room when we arrive. It was chocolate covered strawberries at our most recent stay at the Sandpearl Resort in Clearwater Beach. She's also been able to get us upgrades at resorts. We were upgraded to a personal villa when we vacationed in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Most of the time when you book a vacation online, you can make requests but they aren't guaranteed. It seems like our chances of those requests being met are better especially since she personally calls the resort herself. I feel truly fortunate to have met Barbara all those years ago. I am always confident that I will have a great trip every time she helps me book a trip and I'm sure I'm going to continue to keep her busy with my goal to visit a new country every year with my son.

I had no idea reviews were published here or I would have responded sooner to the comments. I am grateful and DELIGHTED to have worked with this client, now friend for so many years. She is discerning and I have come to know her preferences, wants and needs. I'm fortunate enough to have been able to meet those needs. I value all who have stuck with me as we adapt to the many and varied changes we see in this sometimes dizzying business. Thanks for being on this Merry Go Round with me.

She fit the trip to me exactly

Reviewed By Chrsitine - West Bloomfield, MI | Traveled to
I have had the pleasure to work with Barbara on an ongoing basis for over 5 years. When I was in doubt, she knew EXACTLY where to send me to have the type of vacation I both needed and wanted. She further handled every detail with only 1 week notice. She took incredible care of me and made sure the venue I went to did the same. Every time I needed her, she has gone above and beyond to help me have the best trips possible. Her care, and thoroughness cannot be matched. I wholeheartedly recommend her!
