Awesome Travel Expect - Trip to Australia and New Zealand

Reviewed By Eileen - Hendersonville, TN | Traveled to
My family and I truly had a trip of a lifetime to Australia and New Zealand. This was a crazy complicated trip with airfare to 4 locations so that we could see as much of this part of the country as possible! Annette planned the whole trip and made recommendations for "must do activities" that we hadn't even thought of - like seeing the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, and making suggestions like - perhaps you should get reservations for dinner on Christmas! She handled all of the details which were pretty involved - i.e. roads where we were going sometimes wash out( Yeah - didn't happen to us!) and we wanted to make sure that my son could scuba dive with a medical restriction. I absolutely love the way Annette handles everything with such professionalism and excitement!!! I think she secretly wishes that she could go everywhere that she plans!!!

A professional travel agent - worth the money!

Reviewed By GKW - Franklin, TN | Traveled to Europe
Annette is always great to insure I don't forget details of the trip, like transfers, insurance, required flight layover times, etc. that I don't always think about. That really helps in the planning and having a smooth, worry free trip. If there are issues during the trip, like flight delays, lost luggage, etc. it is really nice to have a professional chase those things and bring them to resolution.

Reviewed By Joe - Nashville, TN | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA

Everything that Annette set up for our vacation went off without a hitch!!
Hotels, tours, planned events, travel plans and transportation were all well planned, and well executed!

The airlines dropped the ball on our return flight and cancelled our flight due to "crew availability". Annette left the comforts of her home, went back to her office at 11:00p.m., and worked past midnight to divert a catastrophe for us.
She worked out an alternate plan, and called back with instructions.

It was so nice having someone at home with her experience and knowledge working on our behalf.

Excellence, Knowledge and Effort - A Superb Travel Agent Who Really Cares about Her Clients

Reviewed By Dick - Knoxville, TN | Traveled to
We had planned to leave on a Tauck Family Bridges River Cruise followed by a few days in Zurich. Annette Cagle of Brandywine Travel did all of the booking. We wanted to get the most out of our trip, particularly for our 14 year old son, who had never been to Europe, so I spent a great deal of time with Annette by phone and e-mail, trying to get every detail of the river cruise, what we needed to bring, what we could see on our stops, etc., then to get a locally owned four star hotel in Zurich in the Old City, so that he and my wife could have the best possible experience and exposure to what Zurich and Lucerne had to offer. Annette never got impatient, and gave me 2-3 hour turnaround on every request, found exactly the type of hotel we wanted in Zurich, tours which would let us see the Alps as well as the city, etc. She never lost patience with my numerous questions, was friendly, courteous and ultra-informative - and has a great sense of humor!. Unfortunately, the day before we were to leave, I was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism, so we had to cancel the trip as it would have been fatal for me to fly. My wife called Annette from the hospital when it was diagnosed, and she cancelled all the arrangements - showing only concern about me and disappointment for us, not frustration at having to cancel a trip on which she had worked so hard and long. Because Annette had insisted that we have trip insurance, we got back every cent of the air fare, river cruise cost, and tour costs in Switzerland, within six weeks. We may be frustrated that the trip had to be cancelled, but thanks to Annette, we have the resources to rebook it as soon as I am given the green light to travel by my physician. Thanks, Annette - for your knowledge, patience and efficiency - we will not even consider using another travel agent!

Reviewed By LAD - Nashville, Tennessee | Traveled to Maine ~ USA
I love making vacation plans with Brandywine and Annette! Annette, is very thorough and works hard to get you exactly what you are looking for. I'm always so amazed at the hotels she recommends, they always exceed expectations!

I'm typically NOT a trip insurance customer, I'd rather take my chances, but Annette has won me over on this! We took her advice and got the insurance on our last trip and had to come home 4 days into a 14 day trip. Between Annette, and the insurance people, we had people working on our behalf to get us home and didn't feel like we were alone.

Thank you Annette for a job well done!

I contacted Annette because my husband Joe wanted to go hiking in Yosemite and I wanted to visit Napa Valley. Annette worked to make the trip a dream for both of us!

I honestly thought Travel Agents were a thing of the past with our access to the Internet. Boy, was I wrong! Annette Cagle with Brandywine Travel has connections developed over the years that allowed her to create an amazing trip for my wife and I to New York City. And the package she put together for us was significantly cheaper than if I'd done it myself thru the Internet. We stayed at a major hotel in the Preferred Guest Floor just a short walk to Times Square. She booked us front row seats for a Broadway play that I couldn't have gotten myself. Every detail was attended to and we had no issues with anything. We can't thank Annette enough for making this one of the best vacations we ever had.

First Family Cruise

Reviewed By John - Hermitage, TN | Traveled to
We had been working with another Travel agent for about a month and could not get any information or follow up from her. In frustration one day we walked into Annette's office at Brandywine Travel about a month before our cruise. It was unbelievable the difference. She took us back to her desk and started asking questions on what we wanted. We explained what we were looking for and that was pretty good list as this was our grown kids first cruise. She did not get on the internet like most agents but she called Carnival and talked to a live person. Because of this she was able to get all three of the rooms on the floor we wanted in the aft area. She was able to also find my wife and I a better cabin with a much larger balcony than we had asked for at almost the same price. We booked the cruise on the spot. With most agents we have dealt with that would have been the end of our communication. This was not the case with Annette. We got regular emails from her following up on several items we had talked to her about. Then one day I get I get a call and they said we had a package. We stopped by not knowing what it was. She had checked all of us in with Carnival and printed all of our boarding passes and luggage tags. This was a great surprise as with the four other cruises we had been on we had to do this ourselves. As you can see I am a big fan of Annette as she made the logistics of our fantastic cruise very easy. If you are looking for a travel agent, you should definitely use her, I know my family will.

Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By Ed - Lebanon, TN | Traveled to
The wife & I decided to celebrate our 40th Anniversary a few months early. Never been to Europe. No idea how to get started. Then remembered Annette at Brandywine Travel, well after initially trying another travel agent. Never got that warm & appreciated feeling. Annette appreciated our 'deer in the head lights' look & took us under her wing. Best thing that could have happened & our two weeks in Europe that blew us away are only because of the extra efforts Annette took with & for us. Every stop was an adventure of wonderful memories. Even the bumps she was there 7 hours away to support. I do not know how she so perfectly 'nailed' it ... the hotels were all so neat in their own interesting way ... the tours she booked were exactly what we wanted (didn't know it at the time) ... she made it about as fool proof as it could be: color coded vouchers that a 1st grader could follow (yep, even me). She said she was not that familiar with Italy, well could not prove it by me. She picked interests we mentioned & made them happen effortlessly. Each bit of advice was correct. Only change I would have made but could not (damned cat at home) would have been to allow 1 extra day per segment for travel. If I outlive the cat we will add the days the next time. As I said, having never been to Europe, Annette understood & broke it all down, every aspect, so I could more easily learn as we proceeded. I will never book anything anywhere again without using Annette. The best trip of out lives ... due to Annette! Honestly, her fee was not near what she provided us ...

We had never been out of the country before and wanted to baby step into it.

She planned a complicated trip

Reviewed By kmay - Mill Vally CA | Traveled to
Over several months time, Annette planned a complicated trip for my cousins (in Nashvile) and me (in California). The care with which she worked with our various times and schedules, with great patience, was impressive. When I had to cancel a transfer at the last minute, her colleague Barb handled it well, confirming the cancellation with me. Unfortunately, the man providing the transfer showed up anyway, apparently not having gotten the message from his office. But I felt secure knowing that from my conversation with Barb that the glitch was not the fault of the travel agency. The hotels were comfortable, well-situation for walking to good restaurants, museums, and other sites of interest. Over all, good, competent, caring service. Thank you!!!

I was in the midst of finishing up a job, packing up my life and moving to a new city while trying to plan a birthday getaway. I realized I couldn't do it on my own and a friend recommended I reach out to Annette and I am so happy I did. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and Annette was incredibly patient through the whole process! She took the time to find out what I wanted and worked really hard to provide that within my budget. Even when I changed my mind (and I did several times), she never once acted like I was a bother. She sent countless ideas and did a lot of research for me.

What seems like a simple task, renting a car in Ireland, quickly turned into a quagmire consisting of insurance deductibles, transmission choices, questions of whether the wheels and windshield were covered, where best to pick it up, etc. etc. ad nauseum, ad infinitum. So, I called Annette at Brandywine Travel and asked if she would help. I had never worked with her or Brandywine before, but she jumped on my request, got me an excellent rate with full insurance coverage and life was good again. I I recommend Annette hightly.

Reviewed By Liz & Ed - Nashville, TN | Traveled to
Annette Cagle at Brandywine Travel is utterly amazing! She took our dreams and budget, then created a 5 star experience for our trip of a lifetime. Using her expert travel knowledge and vast international connections she meticulously masterminded an awesome itinerary. Had we arranged things by ourselves online, we would have missed out on upgrades and unique experiences that put us into a category beyond what we had imagined! Annette was more than helpful and informative throughout the planning phase and shared invaluable tips for the preparation process. Her magic touch took us from having a nice trip to taking an incredible journey!

She was wonderful in seting up our trip

Reviewed By Lyn - Hermitage, TN | Traveled to
I don't think anyone could have been more helpful than Annette. I had so many questions and she answered them all. She was extremely knowledgeable. Our trip to Hawaii was the best. Our flight was non-eventful. We followed Annette's advice and made it through security and through the flights with no problems. Our hotel was very nice and only a couple of blocks from the beach. There were places to eat everywhere and you could even order in from many of the restaurants and they were at your door in no time. We went on three tours. We went to Pearl Harbor and even met one of the nine survivors from the Arizona. We also went on a Circle Island with a Turtle Snorkle Tour and of course a Luau. We took our granddaughter with us and we now have the most wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. This trip would not have been possible without the wonderful help and planning from Annette.

Perfect 25th Anniversary in Italy- Thanks Annette!

Reviewed By Barry and Kim - Lebanon, Tn | Traveled to
We cannot thank Annette Cagle at Brandywine Travel enough! She helped us plan a 10 night trip to Italy to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Every detail was perfectly planned and organized so that we just followed her directions and didn't have to worry about anything. The flights were spaced with enough time between but not too much, and the hotels were beautiful and in perfect locations for what we wanted to do and see. Annette scheduled several tours and all of our transfers which were fantastic and effortless for us. One tour of the Venice opera house was cancelled at the last minute but Annette was able to get us a full refund before we got home and we didn't have to deal with the stress of dealing with it- we were on vacation! If you are thinking of planning a trip, do not hesitate to contact Annette. She has been in business over 30 years and had even booked our honeymoon! We knew we could depend on her to plan our trip of a lifetime and were thrilled with her service and results.

Great Service!

Reviewed By Colline and Steven - Manchester, Tn | Traveled to
We had a fabulous honeymoon in Hawaii! More than we ever hoped for or dreamed of. It would not have been as wonderful without Annette's truly personalized service. She gave us exactly what we asked for and then some. We got a detailed daily itinerary that told us exactly where to be and at what time. We just had to pick up the day's paperwork and follow her exact instructions. She arranged great tours with great tour companies. More importantly, we had plenty of "alone" time to just relax on the beach. I can't say enough good things about the Royal Hawaiian Hotel where we stayed. We had great service, fabulous food, in a truly "Royal" setting. When we walked out the back door, we were on the beach We loved the Mai Tai bar and restaurant . We never had anything but amazing food, especially the French fries - they were the best we've ever had anywhere. We truly enjoyed our stay. I cried when it was time to leave. There is a reason they call Hawaii paradise. We married on leap year day, February 29, and are already planning our first anniversary trip in four years. Thank you, Annette, for a truly memorable, wonderful trip, and your expert, kind help.

Amazing Vacation!

Reviewed By Arms Family - Rome, Italy, Venice Italy, and Celebrity Cruises | Traveled to
We called on Annette to make arrangements for our trip out of the country. Annette was extremely professional, and our trip was PERFECT! The private transportation services to and from our various locations went incredibly smooth. The hotel that she reserved for us in Rome was, beautiful, quant and in a great location to all the attractions that we wanted to visit. She also made some last minute fight changes for our return trip home so that we could have a little more time on our final day. We will definitely use Annette with our future travel arrangements, and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Reviewed By Jan H. - Old Hichory, TN | Traveled to
We have used Brandywine Travel for Years--from beautiful ocean cruises to African Safaris--from Ireland to Italy--London and Paris to River Cruises-- we simply would not recommend anyone else! Her expertise will help you map out your dream trip--but the absolute proof is in her handling of glitches that invariably arise-- we've never had a problem that Annette couldn't solve. She's our travel agent-- and our friend--and we can't wait for our River Cruise through France this May. Thanks Annette--You've opened the beauty of the world to us!!

A great family vacation made by good planning

Reviewed By Craig - Nashville, TN | Traveled to
Annette pointed us in the right direction for our trip to the Virgin Islands from what island to stay on, where to visit and what to do on our trip. Everything from the flight to the accommodations were handled with ease, so all we had to do was enjoy. We stayed on St. Thomas at the Marriott Morning Star, and would definitely recommend that again. Our room was 50 feet from the beautiful beach and there were good dining options there at the resort for both lunch & dinner (breakfast not so much). Definitely recommend a trip to the British Virgin Islands (the Baths, Jost Van Dyke), snorkling and shopping at the Charlotte Amalie and the people & the food were great too.

Never grew weary of my million questions!

Reviewed By Marylee - Nashville, TN | Traveled to
Ms Annette helped me plan and book a cruise for my (step)daughter and myself back in February. She helped me figure out exactly what documentation I would need since my husband is currently deployed. Once we had that all wrapped up, I decided to throw another curveball at her. We received our foreign exchange student two weeks prior to our cruise. A phone call to Ms Annette with my new request of getting a stateroom to accommodate three folks was placed. She immediately went into action. Our ship was booked solid so we started looking at changing ships and itineraries. Right before I made the decision to swap ships, she called me and said "get me the student's passport number now, a suite just opened up!" She got that taken care of and went to work on the airfare and managed to get that accomplished as well. Then the real fun began....what documentation does one need to take a J1 Visa student out of the country?!?! Unfazed, she said "I don't know, let me research and call you back!". Working together, we figured it all out and I left for Port Canaveral armed with any and everything Port Authority folks could ask for. Mission accomplished, right? Nope, hello hurricane Matthew! Our ship left port on time and we had a fabulous week cruise, but we were very delayed coming back into port causing us to miss our flights home. Not to worry she says, we got this. Once we were off the ship, there was transportation to the hotel and our new flights for the next day were already booked. All this on a Saturday afternoon/evening! She communicated with me along the way and just kept saying "you enjoy the cruise, I got this side of it". I truly was able to enjoy those final days instead of scrambling like other folks in the same boat ;) I cannot recommend Ms Annette highly enough. All of our vacations will continue to be planned through her. The peace of mind is invaluable.

She took the hassle and pressure off me by planning everything.

Reviewed By Evelyn - Gallatin, TN | Traveled to
Annette is a great travel agent. She helped me plan our 8 day Europe vacaton on Carnival Vista /Cruise Line from start to finish. Her itinerary for us (4 adults) was perfect from Nashville, Tennessee to Barcelona, Spain and back home. I did not have to worry about the airlines, gratuities, shore excursions (6 ports), travel insurance or transfers. She covered it all. I would highly recommend her services to any one planning a trip or vacation. Way to Go Annette!!!

Annette made our trip one to remember!

Reviewed By Jenifer - Huntington Beach, CA | Traveled to
Annette was so thorough in making our trip everything we wanted it to be. She really cares about what kind of experience one wants to have. All five family members' interests were included in considering how we would lay out or trip. Her recommendation on trip insurance was a lifesaver as my son broke his leg halfway through our trip. When that happened Annette jumped into action, cancelled what she could, and even had the insurance company contact me to help get everything in order so I didn't have to look anything up in that stressful situation. Once my son was out of the hospital, Annette helped me get accommodations for us for a long-term stay until he was cleared to fly and gave us advice on tours we could still do with a broken leg. Once home, she still checks in on us from time to time. Annette is a travel agent I will use again and again. I cannot recommend her enough and hope to meet her in person one day to say thank you.

Castles in Wales

Reviewed By Wales 2015 - Nashville Area | Traveled to
Annette and Bandywine Travel made our reservations for our family to travel to Wales to see the castles. It was an amazing trip and the Bed and Breakfast she booked us into was actually inside the "city wall" and 1 block up from the Castle and the ocean straight on which it was located. AMAZING! We also took the "Rib Ride" boat tour of the straight and had so much fun we would do it again! Annette and crew had every travel and loding reservation just as we needed. Thanks again to the crew for all their help!

25th Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By dnplewis - Nashville, TN | Traveled to
We came to Annette with a hodgepodge of requests for our 25th anniversary trip to Europe. We wanted to experience various modes of transportation and locations along with a combination of independent and group travel. Annette listened carefully to what we said and built the perfect vacation for us. An apartment in Salzburg, a river cruise through Germany, and a tour of the big 3 in Italy. It was literally planes, trains, and automobiles and it was stunning. It would have taken us months of research to build this trip for ourselves, and still it would not have gone this smooth.. Within less than a hour of talking she knew exactly what would work and as a result we had one of the best vacation experiences of our lives. Everything was taken care of in advance and we spent all of our time seeing, doing and relaxing, no time wasted fighting with travel logistics or botched reservations. Annette is tops in our book and now our go-to agent for a hassle free vacation.

We had a great time!

Reviewed By alj - Nashville, TN | Traveled to
Your arrangements worked well. The hotels were well-situated for what we wanted to see, and easy walking distance to many nice restaurants, underground stations, or museums, etc. Your office was fabulous in resolving a concern with one of the airport transfers. I called to confirm pick-up for our 1PM flight and was told the flight was rescheduled to 9AM. I checked the airline website and didn't see any changes and called the transfer company back but he remained certain. So I called your office - and they took over. All was well. Thank you for making this trip such a good one for us. I can't imagine planning it myself - we needed your expertise, energy, and experience!
