Planning the "Once in a Lifetime" vacation!

Reviewed By Laura - Farmington, MN | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
I was previously working with a different travel agent / company that was a friend of a friend... I am trying to plan the "once in a lifetime" vacation for 5 people that have different ideas of what this vacation should be... The previous agent did not understand what was needed from this trip for the 5 people, in varying ages, and lack of timely responses, or options was just making this vacation something that we just wanted to cancel...

Then I found Christine, and everything fell into place. (Maybe it helped that we have the same last name :)) She provided a variety of options for all-inclusive resorts for my family and I to look at, in this well put together package that listed amenities, activities, accommodations. Christine did not get annoyed when I kept finding another option to see if that would work within our budget, but would just come back with the information requested. Christine was very helpful, friendly, and went above and beyond in helping me plan this trip.

The perfect anniversary getaway

Reviewed By NoSnow - Duluth, MN | Traveled to Mexico
She made booking an all-inclusive far less overwhelming--asking the right questions to narrow down the spectrum of options. Her recommendations were spot on at various price points. I would definitely contact her again to book another trip.

An Incredible Journey

Reviewed By J & B - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Europe
This is the second time that Christine assisted us with trips to Europe. Most recently, we travelled to Belgium and England and Christine, as usual, had great recommendations for hotels and excursions. Also, her ability to find reasonable airline fares is always much appreciated! We definitely anticipate more overseas travel in the near future and, when we decide on our destination, our first call will be to Christine.

Many Successful Trips

Reviewed By Anne - Minneapolis MN | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
We have worked with Christine for the past 5 years. She has provided excellent service, resulting in some wonderful vacation travels. She listens and she incorporates any special interests and needs into the planning, and deals effectively with any worries or concerns, during the planning process. She also remembers the information we give her from one trip to the next. I can say she is excellent at using all the resources available to her, to get the best possible match in finding hotels and transportation, at the most reasonable price. I highly recommend her.
