I am Alice Gerety.  I have been in the travel business for just over 30 years!!  and I love what I do!!  I particularly love to book cruises and trips for honeymoons, anniversaries,  and romantic getaways!!  My husband Bob & I have taken alot of groups....we have taken many Pilgrimages to Israel and Europe and also cruises to Alaska and Europe and Mexico and the Mediterranean and the Caribbean and the Baltic and steamboats up the Mississippi River and even two rafts on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon!!!!  We just took a group on a Veteran's cruise and we enjoyed Ireland, Scotland, (Military Tatoo) and Normandy!!  We are now working on a river cruise down the Danube River and invite people to join us!!  It is fun to travel with others and it is a great idea to have famiy reunions or special birthday trips with family/friends!! This September I am working on a Marian Shrines Pilgrimage which goes to Fatima, Lourdes, Sanitago de Compestela, Burgos and Avila!!  I have one small group of eight sailing together on a sailboat from Mykonos to Santorini!!  And others who cruise on the largest ships afloat ...6,0000 passengers (that is bigger than my home town!!)  There is a cruise or a trip for everyone!!  We have small cruise lines of 70 to 700 and UP!!!  I love to help my clients plan their dream come true vacation - there is lots of fun in the planning!!  I especially like to assist people in traveling to their roots!! It was a thrill for me to discover Denmark and also my husband's roots of Ireland!!  and now, we have new family to visit and enjoy!!  I have helped many people discover their roots... Poland and Scotland, etc!!  I take great pride in getting people the best itinerary with the best price!!  I am active in my community and so my clients are my church friends, Soroptimist friends and chamber of commerce  friends - I believe we need to support our local businesses as that creates a  happy and healthy community!! I love to share my love of travel and discovery with my clients!! I speak to local organizations and churches about travel and set up groups for them!!
