Spending the day in Lucerne, before taking my Rhin

Have you ever wished that you had a best friend or family member who could book your trips for you? Someone who truly cared about your needs and desires and would create an itinerary that was perfect for you?

When I book trips for my clients, I work with them as if they were my best friends or family members. I truly care about each one of my clients and want to arrange the best trip possible for them.

I book all types of vacations, but specialize in river and ocean cruises and all-inclusive vacations. I especially love booking family travel, destination weddings and honeymoons.

Although planning travel for large groups can present some unique challenges, I pride myself on thinking outside of the box and coming up with ideas and solutions.

I have been in the travel industry since 1993, and I typically book hundreds of clients every year. I have probably encountered and dealt with just about every foreseeable travel-related problem.

I also travel extensively, especially to the areas where I typically book clients. I do this because I believe that it's important to be able to share first-hand experiences and tips with my clients.

One of my favorite quotes is, "We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us," and this is why I enjoy traveling with my own family. Each trip we take together is a way to create lasting memories. That is what I hope to create for my clients - memorable journeys that they can talk about together for many years to come.

Great help on several trips

Reviewed By Missouri50 - Missouri | Traveled to
We have used Andrea to book both cruises and land-based all-inclusive vacations. Her service is excellent and every trip has gone off exactly as planned. Our most recent trip was to an all-inclusive in Mexico on the "Mayan Riviera". This was a family vacation and required getting folks to Mexico from three different locations in the U.S. Andrea did a great job coordinating all of this. She has helped several friends as well. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants a hassle free vacation.

Travel Planning Team

Reviewed By Naomi - Kansas City, KS | Traveled to
We've worked with Andrea for so long that she knows what we want in a travel experience. She has helped in planning 33 cruises, and every one has been a wonderful experience. I just wish that we had more chances to work with Andrea. She takes care of the smallest details, and makes our cruises run smoothly. I have recommended Andrea many times, and keep her business cards to hand out when talking to people about cruising. Thank you, Andrea, for all your hard work over the years, and your help in planning all the details of wonderful cruises.

Exceptional travel professional

Reviewed By Bigbire - Platte City, MO | Traveled to
Andrea is not just a travel agent, she is a friend. She and her assistant, Lori, have coordinated two cruises for us, both with Holland America. Both cruises, including one that was an anniversary cruise with family from multiple locations were executed without any problems. All aspects of both cruises were spot on, including hotel accommodations, transfers, ground transportation, air travel, excursions, as well as the cruises themselves went off without any problems. They ensure that they understand exactly what the client wants and work to ensure that clients get the maximum benefits to which they are entitled. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrea to potential clients and plan to use her and her agency, Cruise Holidays, in planning future cruises.

Can't wait to take our trip!!

Reviewed By Shannon B - Platte City, MO 64079 | Traveled to
Andrea knows that I am a bargain hunter but want quality for services & hotel options. She is helping us plan our September trip to Disney World. She has provided three options for us to choose from ranging from good, better & best. I like that. She doesn't mind when I come back to her with changes & responds quickly with updates. Andrea has booked four All Inclusive trips for us with three of those in Mexico! I just like sending my requests to Andrea and then she comes back with ideas & prices. I'm all for booking with travel professionals, I don't have the time in my crazy day to find the best deals.

Always getting it done

Reviewed By MegM - Chicago suburbs | Traveled to
Andrea takes the time to understand us and our needs, our preferred travel options and works to get us everything we could want and more. We have worked with her for several years and she offers suggestions to enrich our experiences but provides the information so that we can make a fully informed decision and WOW have some of her suggestions come in handy. Just one instance: Alaska tips and timing on excursions, things to do.....invaluable. Andrea responds quickly to any questions with complete and accurate information and we can always rely on her to get it done in a timely manner, with a smile on her face and with the comfort of knowing the job was done right. We have also referred several family and friends to her and they all say the same thing.......so happy to be working with Andrea as we know we don't have to worry about a thing!

Stop looking. She IS the one! Truly the best.

Reviewed By CEOICAREUSA - United States | Traveled to
I was introduced to Andrea several years ago when looking for a travel agent to handle a large corporate awards trip. She not only directed us to a wonderful spot but also stayed in our strict budget. Many think that travel agents add to the cost of a trip. I was one of them. Not so. Andrea not only saved us money, she found better flight times and made sure our schedules made sense. (I fly over 125k miles per year, so this is not coming from a rookie). I have now utilized Andrea's services for our annual outing as well as a large multi-family trip where she had to manage many different personalities. Everyone loved her. I have referred her to several friends and everyone has had the same result and feedback. She is knowledgeable, professional, helpful and will guide you to the right vacation with her years of experience. I will continue to Andrea for all my travel plans.

A stellar planner

Reviewed By Don - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Andrea tuned in to our desires and needs immediately and planned our trips accordingly. The trip she is planning now will be our fifth trip with her. I say it that way because we feel that she is with us because of everything she has taken care of for us. She is a treasure house of information and her suggestions are invaluable. Her responsiveness is excellent. She is a detail-oriented person and takes care of the smallest aspects. Nothing is left to chance. Every trip has been smoothly orchestrated and smoothly run. Andrea is a stellar performer; unreservedly, wholeheartedly and unequivocally the BEST. Don't settle for less. You are not just in good hands with Andrea, you are in excellent hands! Thanks for letting us offer this review for you Andrea. You are a darlin'!!

Andrea gets it right the first time.

Reviewed By Jim and Barbara - Lansing, KS | Traveled to
My wife is disabled. As such our old travel agent just couldn't get it right in making our reservations; something always went wrong. In 2009, we decided to find a new travel agent so we met with Andrea and gave her a list of things we needed and wanted when we traveled. This is 2015, eleven cruises later, and she hasn't let us down yet! I don't recommend folks very often but I have recommended at least 7 couples do business with her and they are all extremely pleased with her. She listens to what you want, recommends changes if needed, and then plans and executes the best vacation you could ever dream of. Very detailed, leaving no stone unturned to support her clients. Extremely friendly; you'll love her the very first minute you meet her. She is the BEST!

Cream of the Crop

Reviewed By Rick - Leavenworth, Kansas | Traveled to
Andrea is a superlative travel agent providing absolutely first class travel planning advice and assistance. She and her assistant Lori respond to any and all requests and make the planning and decision process extremely easy. She has worked six cruise vacations for my wife and me as well as a driving vacation in California where she completed all the air, land transportation, cruise, and lodging coordination. All executed without a hitch. Additionally, she is an experienced traveler herself and can offer first hand suggestions on the very best locations and itineraries. The Best! She's the "go to" Agent for seven friends, as well. I hightly recommend her for couples or families traveling.

Informed and informative

Reviewed By Carol - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
We have worked with Andrea for over 5 years. She has an amazing knowledge about whatever product we may ask about. On the rare occasion she doesn't know the answer, she quickly researchs and finds out, usually with an added bonus of extra info. Andrea is very quick to respond - also if we've missed an item while planning, she will take time to touch base with us. We have never had a hesitation to recommend Andrea and will continue to do so in the future.
