I like to travel off the beaten path - exploring new and hidden corners of countries I visit, and immersing myself in the culture, the people, the cuisine and the history.  I especially love Europe and have traveled extensively through that continent, learning the tips and the tricks of traveling safely and economically along the way.  I encourage my clients to experience the countries they visit and explore like a local.  I pay attention to the details and go the extra mile to ensure that you experience a unique and custom itinerary.  Perhaps you want to attend a culinary school in Italy, or visit Turkey like a local with a small guided group of experts.  I can find those unique trips for you!

My Reviews

London was all we hoped for and more! Thanks!

Reviewed By June - Centennial, CO | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Sandra was very helpful as we planned our first trip overseas to London. She was very patient as we made decisions on where we wanted to stay and what we wanted to do. She found us a wonderful apartment/hotel that was perfect for our needs. It had a wonderful view, located in a nice, quiet residential area, but just about a half-block from the underground, so we were only 20 minutes away from everything. The transportation she found to take us to and from the airport was fantastic. It seemed a bit pricey at first - but it was well worth every pound and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again! Our driver was polite, knowledgeable, and most of all, a lot of fun and helped us get our bearings as we traveled through the city to our hotel.

Most of our trip was "self-guided," and Sandra was very patient and helpful as we planned our activities. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone looking for a great travel experience!

Bucket List Trip!

Reviewed By LMI - Windsor, Colorado | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Wonderful Experience. Great attention to details. This was our first trip to Europe and Sandy provided such great service right from the start. Airline tickets and advice on how and when to upgrade our seats along with the transportation to hotel and river boat. Suggestion on which cabins might work better for us. Went over the excursions and made great suggestions for our extra days in Paris.
All in all, a great trip thanks to Sandy! I have already recommended her to my friends and family!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Reviewed By Linda - Arvada, Colorado | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
When I first contacted Sandy to get some help planning our trip to Italy she took a lot of time finding out what we wanted to do and what was important to us. Her knowledge of where we wanted to go was extensive and very helpful. She took on as much as we wanted and her selections were perfect. The hotels she booked us at were in great locations. Our trains were scheduled with precision. She partnered with vendors that were amazing and provided great customer service. She took the worry out of a lot of planning. For our next trip, we will for sure call her first.

The Longest Trip of Our Lives....27 days

Reviewed By Pam and Mark Twain - ft. Collins, colorado | Traveled to France ~ Europe
review of Sandra McMillien by pam washburn , august 25th, 2017
Sandra is a 10, awesome, hard working, detailed oriented, nice, fun.....MORE than you would expect from any travel agent. She took an idea of a trip to Europe to completion with alll the transportation, hotels, things to do and wonderful travel tips.
Yes, she planned a 4week trip in France going where we wanted to go and how much time we wanted to stay at each place. Being on our own meant doing or not doing activities along the way. We wanted the freedom of choice and not be on a preplanned group tour.
She can get better deals on tours also if that is your preference....bus, river etc. or wonderful family trip.
There is no doubt that we will ask Sandra again to help us. You should too. She won't let you down in any way.
Sincerely , Pam Washburn

Above and beyond!

Reviewed By kathy - Loveland, CO | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe
My husband and I can't say enough about how wonderful it is to work with Sandra! We found Sandra online and after reading her great reviews, called her to help us book some site tours while we were visiting Italy. We had planned our trip ourselves, and all though Sandra explained that she normally worked with clients on planning their entire trip / package, not excursions only...she offered to meet with us and share some ideas with us. She was so very helpful, personable, and kind! She offered great advice, tips, and insight we could not have gotten otherwise. She did indeed help us with a tour of ancient Rome that she felt would be just right for us. It was amazing! Shortly after our initial meeting with Sandra, I decided to treat my children and grand-kids to a special Christmas vacation in Mexico. Of course I called Sandra and she worked her magic to find us just the right location, resort, etc. for my family of 12! We are super excited! Thank you Sandra! You go above and beyond!

5 cities in Italy

Reviewed By 17 days in Italy - Highlands Ranch, CO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
I was trying to book a 17 day trip through Italy on my own and was really struggling with things like where to start, where to end and how to book various trains etc. After not finding enough good info online I decided to call an agent out of the blue and was lucky enough to get in touch with Sandy. When I first called she spent about an hour on the phone with me asking all types of questions on what I and my wife liked to do. We eventually created a blue print for our trip then modified it a few times over the next week or two until we finally had everything planned out.

Sandy took care of all train, plane and automobile trips and everything went off without a hitch. She also helped with some experiences and lodging. It ended up being one of our favorite vacations. Some trips are easy to plan on your own and others are not. For those that are not is when using someone like Sandy will make not only the planning but also the vacation that much more enjoyable.

The Flavor of Barcelona

Reviewed By Amy - Colorado Springs, CO | Traveled to Barcelona ~ Spain ~ Europe
Sandra was so very easy to work with. She helped to book our airfare, apartment and tours. It became very overwhelming in hotel hunting. Never visiting Barcelona, Spain before, I did not what area to look in. Sandra spent time asking about our needs and wants. We were visiting a daughter who is studying in Barcelona. We need more space than a hotel had to offer. Sandra found us a quaint apartment in a beautiful neighborhood that met and exceeded our expectations. We truly got the flavor of how people in Barcelona live. I definitely recommend Sandra with all of your travel needs because of her willingness to help and her expertise.

The best experience I've had booking a cruise

Reviewed By Janice - Derby, KS | Traveled to St. Croix ~ Virgin Islands ~ Caribbean
Sandra was absolutely amazing! She very efficiently booked our cruise including our lodging in San Juan days before boarding the Jewel of the Seas. Sandy also arranged shuttle services to the ship and, finally, to the airport for our return trip home. She was very helpful including purchasing two drink packages onboard for myself and my husband before we left home for the trip.

Delightful accommodations!

Reviewed By C & L Miller - Windsor, CO | Traveled to
Sandy has helped us plan and secure arrangements for several European visits. We were delighted with the small, charming, friendly hotels she found for us. Sandy specializes in finding these unique and memorable paces to fit within our budget. We really appreciate that she personally contacts each hotel to verify and confirm the arrangements. Sandy also helped us save us money on car rentals and suggested we take our own GPS device for driving directions (make sure your GPS has the detailed European maps if you do this). We really like Sandy’s follow-up after each trip to make sure the accommodations and other arrangements met our expectations. Her enthusiasm for travel is exciting and fun! We will definitely use Sandy’s services again!

Easy Scandinavia

Reviewed By FrankTheRat - Loveland CO | Traveled to
I've traveled extensively and until this trip had never used a travel agent. I like to do my own research and plan my own time. However, recent medical issues had made concentrating on anything for more than a few minutes very difficult. Having met Sandy at an event at our library I decided to give her a call. I explained my situation, likes and dislikes, time frame and budget. Sandy called me back promptly and said even though she knew I preferred a "go it alone" route that there was a group tour that fit my needs as far as timing and cost. After more questions and discussion I decided to sign up for the tour and just book my flights to arrive 5 days early and stay 5 days after the tour. The tour worked out wonderfully, although i struck out on my own in the major cities; Copenhagen, Oslo, Bergen and Stockholm. As I was traveling as a single I would not have been able to rent a car or book hotels at a competitive rate to what the tour offered. As my plans were fluid about what to do after the group tour ended I emailed Sandy 2 days before the end asking her to book additional nights in a hotel for me which she did and promptly emailed me back. In the future we will use Sandy unless (and even sometimes when) we are traveling to a place we are very familiar with. FrankTheRat

Great Trip

Reviewed By Gordon - Loveland, Colorado | Traveled to
In the Fall of 2013 my wife and I attended a seminar led by Sandy called ... "Extraordinary Travel for Ordinary People." Later I bought and read the book bearing the same title written by Sandy. What I saw and read led my wife and I to ask Sandy to plan a trip for us to London and Paris. We were not dis-appointed by what she arranged. We got to see and experience parts of France that other people only dream about. This past September we had Sandy arrange another trip for us to Europe. Once again, we were not dis-appointed. Sandy hooked us up with a Tour that took us to Munich, Prague, Budapest, Vienna & Salzburg called "Imperial Splendors." Though we are common ordinary middle class people -- we saw, experienced and tasted things that made us feel like extraordinary people. We highly, highly, recommend Sandy to people who want to experience the kind of travel they've always dreamed about. Gordon

Could have never planned this trip without Sandy!

Reviewed By Kathy M - Denver, Colorado | Traveled to
I have tried planning trips to foreign countries on my own and have always ended up regretting certain decisions I've made. For the first time, I thought I'd use a travel agent. Sandy was referred to me by a friend, and I wasn't sure what to expect. As it turned out, Sandy took the time to figure out the kinds of things we like to do (hike, not lay on a beach, that sort of thing). She quickly went to work helping us plan an itinerary and finding us reasonable hotels that met our needs for a good bed and a decent price. When I had questions, Sandy responded almost immediately. She has taken the stress of planning this "bucket list" trip for us and, as a result, I have no doubt that we will have a whole lot more fun knowing that everything has been thought about and planned ahead - and she has even assured me that we can make changes if the circumstances warrant this when we arrive. I have never reviewed anything/anyone before but want to assure anyone interested that Sandy and Ordinary Couples Travel is the way to go!

Reviewed By Maj-Lis - Windsor, CO | Traveled to
Sandy went above and beyond for us. I took my mother on a cruise of the baltic. We saw Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia and Latvia. We took this trip in July and the weather was perfect. Every place we turned looked like a post card. I had never used a travel agent before as I feel pretty computer savvy and have usually booked all of my trips myself from travel web sites. After using Sandy, I will never book a large trip with out her. She anticipated every detail of the trip such as transfers and need for Visas in certain areas. She took a long time discovering our needs to make sure we got what we wanted from our trip. Sandy took the time to compile a travel guide for us based on our interested and cruise itinerary. She had did hours of research for us to find the best price and the highest rated excursions. She took all the stress out of the equation. My Mom is a litter older and I wanted to give her the trip of her dreams while she still physically can. Wow. I am serious she will help you plan the trip of a lifetime.

Extraordinary Travel for Ordinary People

Reviewed By ibdave - Windsor, CO | Traveled to
Sandy has arranged two trips for me. The first, involving international travel, the second domestic. I have reviewed her efforts for travel to Turkey elsewhere. But the second was for dull boring travel between Windsor and Portland, OR that circumstances dictated occur with only a few days notice. I talked with her on a Monday (as I recall) and by Wednesday she had developed options for air travel, rental car and hotel, discussed them with me and completed the reservations. The trip went well, in part because of suggestions by Sandy that, for example, I pay additional to arrange earlier boarding on SWA and finding an in airport rental car agency as cheap as those off airport. One delightful surprise was the Crowne Plaza hotel in Portland was ritzy enough that no continental breakfast was offered. But, because of that, I discovered that breakfast can be as enjoyable as dinner in a quality restaurant. Too often in our rush we grab something off the buffet and are on our way losing that comfortable start to the day. Thanks Sandy!

Extrordinary Service for Ordinary People

Reviewed By ibdave - Windsor, CO | Traveled to
Ordinary Travel and I began planning for my adventure before my knee joint replacement surgery. Starting early, this would provide something to look forward to during the physical therapy needed following surgery. Sandy swayed me from my original destination, Florence, Italy, to touring Turkey appealing to my sense of adventure and engaging in new experiences. What a wonderful suggestion that she has brought to reality despite my fumbling attempts to "help". And there were adventures even during the setting up stage, first came a tour cancelled by the operator then a second surgery to replace a shoulder (I do not mind growing old, it is the falling apart that annoys me) delaying the start by a month. The resources used by Ordinary Couple Travel are impressive, quickly gathering together options and executing the ones chosen. Then quickly adapting to changes all the while with professionalism, courtesy and increasing the depth of our emerging friendship. Of particular note was Sandy providing "thumbnail" sketches of the places I would be visiting, recommendations for local tours and operators and most useful suggestions on how to deal with trivia such as using local transport (taxis, buses) instead of expensive tour operator arranged transport. My first experience planning with a professional was impressive, helpful in discovering new venues and delightful in that I will truly enjoy the results of her attending to details that would not even occur to me. Thank you for this opportunity to let others know that planning a trip with a professional enhances the anticipation of the actual pleasure of the trip itself. David Newport

Don't leave home without her!

Reviewed By Gary and Connie - Windsor, CO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Sandy, is not only the best travel agent we've ever dealt with, but in truth no other agent comes close. She's head and shoulders above the others for three reasons: She has been to every place she recommends, she listens, and she is the consummate professional who sweats the details. In saying she has been to the places we don't just mean just the destination, we mean the hotels she's recommending, the restaurants, the activities. Sandy and her husband love to travel and she has turned this love into a passion for helping others enjoy countries and places in a way they never would without her experience. She knows places like the back of her hand, and then combined with her knowledge she listens to her clients. Question after question about what type of hotels do you like, what type of activities, comfort level with various modes of transportation, etc. She then works on putting together, in every detail, an amazing experience tailored exactly to you. Sandy is amazing!

There are travel agents who can plan a trip, and there are agents who plan experiences....Sandy goes for the latter! She has planned two trips for me---a girls beach trip to Mexico and a 2 week trip to Italy for my husband and I. In planning both trips, Sandy's first question was always, "What kind of experience do you want to have?" She is so detailed oriented and ensures that everything is in place for a wonderful trip. Sandy has traveled extensively herself, so she brings incredible personal knowledge to the table. If she doesn't know the answer to any question, she quickly does the research and finds out! She has now become my personal "go-to" for any and all travel inquiries!

Sandy is the nicest person to talk with over the phone. She always makes you feel like you are the most important client of hers. I plan trips for 50+ and she has set up all the lodging for 2 of my trips. She has helped tremendously and got me a better price than I would have gotten otherwise. She is also well traveled herself and has had many unique experiences that she is in tune with her clients needs and can recommend a broad range. She has written a really neat book about those experiences called "Extraordinary Travels of an Ordinary Couple."
