Wonderful small group tour of Italy

Reviewed By Woodju3 - Texas | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My husband and I wanted to go on a small group tour of Italy. I did lots of research, narrowed down my list of choices then emailed Cathy.

Cathy told us which company to use, booked the trip and handled all the details. Our trip to Italy was OUTSTANDING! It truly was the best trip we have ever taken.

We would not have booked this trip without Cathy’s advice. She highly recommended it so that was good enough for us.

Cathy is quick to respond to questions and is very easy to work with!

Our vacations are always wonderful!

Reviewed By Jennifer - Wake Forest, NC | Traveled to Caribbean
Cathy has planned more than one trip for us. She always goes above and beyond to find a trip that best fits our family. She works hard to find the best price possible! Cathy always stays in close contact while planning our trips and follows up to see if our experience was as wonderful as we had anticipated. My favorite thing about Cathy is that she is organized and detail oriented!

Great trip!

Reviewed By Woodju3 - Texas | Traveled to Rhine River ~ On the River ~ At Sea
Cathy took care of all the details of this river cruise. She is quick to respond to any question and very easy to work with.

I always thought I could book trips myself. I was wrong, it is a great luxury to have a knowledgeable competent person give advice and handle all the arrangements.

I highly recommend Cathy. She is the best!!!

Love working with Cathy

Reviewed By Sonja - Westfield, NC | Traveled to
I previously used online travel sites for booking but checked into using Travel Specialists for our honeymoon 7 years ago. Cathy pointed out several things not included in online packages that I didn't realize. I have found her rates to be the most affordable that I can find and her customer service is excellent! We typically do cruises or all inclusives and she really knows the best options. Sometimes I just want to go somewhere but don't know where or when and she gives me great options to make it really easy to figure it out. I'll continue working with her in the future.

Cruise every year

Reviewed By Cruiser - King, NC | Traveled to Caribbean
Cathy Saunders is very up to date on top of what trip she is planning for us. If a rate changes, she lets us know right away. She always looks for the lowest rate and gives us advise on what each place has to offer. Our grandchildren travel with us and she will let us know which place is the best for them and which place is not kid friendly.

Cruisin

Reviewed By Frau L. - Winston-Salem, North Carolina | Traveled to Vancouver ~ British Columbia ~ Canada
My husband and I have worked with Cathy to book three cruises. Thankfully she doesn't just make the booking and forget it; she pays attention to every detail and stays in touch. Our first planned cruise had to be cancelled due to unexpected surgery and we were so grateful for her assistance at that time. In October 2017 we did a west coast cruise from Vancouver, Canada to Los Angeles. Cathy's research to find the best air fare, to arrange extra days in Vancouver and a visit to Butchart Gardens involved too many details to list, but she thought of everything. Our next planned trip is a river cruise in Europe. Again, she searched for the best air fares and flight schedules and has kept us informed as payments are due and information needed.

As an experienced traveler herself, Cathy knows just what is required to plan a memorable and stress free vacation. She always strives to find the best prices, to offer good advice and to provide the very best service for her clients.

Travel with Cathy

Since my wife and I were married 11 years ago, we have been using Cathy Saunders and Travel Specialists to help us plan our vacations. She has always come through for us. Whether it is a Caribbean destination like Sandals Resorts (we have 80+days with Sandals), a tour of Italy, a week in Cabo San Lucas, a vacay on Coronado Island, or just a quickie in the Big Apple, Cathy has made our excursions simple andas affordable as we desire. I recommend her to my friends and patients. Thanks Cathy and we will be calling again soon! - Dr. Mark Johnson
