Whitehall, Michigan Travel Agent

An independent agent with KHM Travel Group in Brunswick, OH, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Romance and Family Travel

It wasn't until my children were adults that I finally had the time to ask, "What do I want to be when I grow up?" The answer was easy. With my love for travel and passion for customer service, a career as a travel agent was a natural fit. These days there is nothing I'd rather do than help my clients take the vacation of their dreams. One of the best parts of being a travel agent is becoming a part of the experience, from start to finish. Recently I helped a father book an escorted tour for him and his daughter. It was a surprise for her, intended as a celebratory trip following her high school graduation and he videotaped her as she opened her gift and saw the itinerary. It's hard to say who was happier, the father, the daughter or me, but it's safe to say that moments like that one are a big part of why I do what I do. Continuing education is an integral part of being a high-level agent, and I'm always bettering myself and expanding my expertise so I can craft the most unique trips to a wide range of destinations. Currently I hold certifications from Sandals, Celebrity Cruises, Princess Cruise Lines and Avalon Waterway. I'm a Globus Tour Expert Program, an AM Resorts Master Agent and a Viking River Cruise Specialist, and most recently, a Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Specialist. There are undoubtedly agents with more experience, but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who is more enthusiastic about what they do than I am. From picking a destination to pinpointing each little detail to being available around the clock just in case a problem crops up, I'm dedicated to creating a memorable experience exceeding every expectation, and every time a client returns from a trip and shares a story or a memory or a picture, I get a little thrill. I'd love nothing more than to help you plan your vacation of a lifetime. Your adventure starts now!

Cruising was fun!

Reviewed By Cheech - Newaygo,MI | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Very friendly, informative, helpful and reassuring person. We met several times so she could answer any questions we had and basically is there for you every step of the way. We didn't experience any difficulties and had a very pleasant cruise. She assured us if we experienced any difficulties along the way with the flights,hotel and cruise to get ahold of her and she would take care of it on her end so we could have a srtress free vacation.
I have recommended her already to my grandchildren who are interested in taking a cruise.

Linda Anderson responded:
Thank you for your great feedback. I always love to hear that my clients feel that I am there for them. That is the biggest thing to assisting in booking vacation packages is to have my client's back from the beginning of the booking until after they return. Thank you again, it is much appreciated.

Linda made our whole trip a lot easier!

Reviewed By Thomas - Cologne, Germany | Traveled to
Friends of us got married and Linda helped us booking our trip from Germany to Jamaica. She made sure that we booked at the right resort, and introduced us to some local activities that we took part in. She was very helpful and always tried to answer our questions as quick as possible. If she didn't know an answer to our questions, she always made sure to find it out! I can definitely recommend her for planning a vacation!

She gave 110% before, during, and after

Reviewed By Mark D - Muskegon, MI | Traveled to
Linda Anderson (Thompke) was immediately responsive to all aspects of anything I needed plus some all the way from the start of finding what exactly we wanted until the time we were in our car heading home. She promised to take care of anything she could if any issues popped up and held true to that, even offering her personal resources. Our trip was great in all respects that she could control. Unforeseen weather hit right before our trip and she helped coordinate a complete destination change 24 hours prior to a place with perfect weather. On the way home we experienced delays in our flights again due to weather in the US and she went as far as getting reps on conference with me to get the best plan together as possible. She stands behind her word 100% and truly cares more than anything to make sure that you are getting a vacation that you want and will love even when it falls back on her in some respects.

Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, Playa del Carmen Mexico

Reviewed By G-Man - Fremont, MI | Traveled to
Linda was very helpful. If she didn't know the answer to a particular question, she would get you the answer quickly. She booked our whole trip and kept us informed of everything...communicating during vacation, if necessary, to make sure all was well and informing us of seating arrangements for our return flights. Would definitely use her services again.

She gave a wonderful, family vacation. One that will last a lifetime.

Reviewed By family of 5 - Michigan | Traveled to
Linda worked very closely with my husband and I to try and find the best vacation resort. We were pretty particular on price and what activities we wanted the resort to have. After looking at many resorts she came upon the Sandos Caracol eco resort in Mexico. It had everything we were looking for. She handled the reservations, booking our flights and even checked us in for the flight so that we would not have to worry about doing that while on vacation. This was the first time we had traveled to Mexico and went to a resort and she made the whole process go through very smoothly. We will definitely go through Linda again for our next vacation.

Linda took all the worryhing out of the planning for this trip.

Reviewed By The Hapoy Hungarian - Plainwell, MI | Traveled to
Linda gave 110% in helping/doing the planning for our trip. Contacted the resort for us to make sure the special requests we had of the resort were made and kept. Was constantly in touch with us prior to our departure to make sure we hadn't forgotten anything from our end, such as packing, transportation, etc. When it was time for us to return home she contacted us to see what she could do for us, such as checking us in with the airline, making transportation arrangements to the airport, etc. Our Trip couldn't have been more easier and enjoyable due to her efforts. I highly recommend using Linda for any travel plans you might want to make. I know we will be using her exclusively for all of our future travels. You will definitely not be disappointed in using Linda as your travel agent.

So attentive and wonderful! She made everything easy and carefree!

Reviewed By Sograteful - Fremont, MI | Traveled to
Linda did such a nice job, from helping us pick the perfect place to go for what we needed, to taking care of the special excursions we wanted to do, to taking care of us while we were there. It was so wonderful to have a perfectly organized trip with everything we would need in a neat binder. She took out all the work I would have had to do in organizing things and getting all the papers and reservations together! It was so wonderful! on top of that.. I simply sent her a small concern about our room while we were there and she immediately was on the phone and fixed everything above and beyond. Our trip was a dream come true with no stress about anything! She was so easy to talk to and so helpful and willing to assist with absolutely anything. She truly cared and wanted us to have the best trip possible!! She is truly a great person for this job and I will definitely use her again and refer all of my family and friends her way!!!

DISNEY TRIP 2015

Reviewed By Shari - Michigan | Traveled to
Linda, was very good at keeping me informed of any changes, etc. after the trip was booked. She helped me navigate through the Disney Experience site - which can be very challenging. If you are planning on a trip to Disney, I recommend doing the research Linda recommended and downloading the app on your phone. We used the app daily while we were touring the parks - our fast passes, reservations, map, etc. I will book future family vacations through Linda.

A Cruise Expert!

Reviewed By Bon Voyage! - Kalamazoo, MI | Traveled to
Enjoyed a 7 day Southern Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean. We departed from San Juan Puerto Rico and spent a couple days there prior to sailing. Linda handled everything and we had absolutely no problems the entire trip. From air travel, hotel, things to do in PR, the ship, excursions and extra special touches, she left no stone unturned. We received a small bon voyage gift with our packets from her and she took the time to personalize them. She checked in with us a couple times during the week to make sure all was going well & she welcomed us home! If you just want to relax with no worries or stress planning - Linda is your gal!

Great trip to the Dominican

Reviewed By Spring Break Trip - Plainwell, MI | Traveled to
The trip was awesome. The resort was better than advertised. Linda did a great job making sure each family got to provide some input into what they wanted out of the vacation. And the follow up and final preparation was handled quickly and everything went exactly as planned. Planning for 20 people was no easy task, but it was handled well and everyone had a great time. The bon voyage champagne and travel accessories was a nice touch, along with the customized travel folder for each family in the group. We had a great experience and look forward to working with Linda again for future family vacations.

She was very sweet, thoughtful, and willing to help us in any way possible!!

Reviewed By DeAnna - Kalamazoo, MI | Traveled to
Linda had lots and lots of suggestions for us. When we came up with an activity that she had not suggested, she offered to check into that activity and possibly get us a better price on it. She was active, on the phone, with the agents at the hotel when we had an issue at check in, and she came to our group planning events to answer any questions we had and to bring us some great goodies as a thank you. We were not an easy group to deal with because we were 5 seperate families with different aged kids and different needs and requests. She handled us beautifully and with grace. I love arranging my own vacations (perhaps I should be a travel agent?? :)), but when going out of the country I prefer to defer to the professionals.....just in case!! Thanks Linda.....loved our vacation!!

AMAZING travel agent!!!

Reviewed By Mr. & Mrs. Wilson - Muskegon, MI | Traveled to
Linda was AMAZING! She made planning our honeymoon so easy! We simply told her what we wanted and what we could afford, and she did all the leg work. She even put together a folder for us to take with us with all our confirmation numbers and package details, that way if we ran into any trouble, we had proof of what we paid for. It made it so easy and stress free! We would recommend Linda to anyone looking to travel, and know we will be turning to her again, any time we travel!
