Patti Herold

Martinsville, Indiana Travel Agent

An independent agent with Dream Destinations Travel, LLC. in Greenwood, IN, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Destination and Cruise Specialist

Somewhere in the wilds of Alaska, between exploring Glacier Bay and feasting my eyes on the staggering vista that is Mt. McKinley, I realized that the only thing missing was a way to share it with the world. The experience, from whale watching, to my room on the cruise ship, was inspiring and virtually flawless, something no mere words could ever recreate, and it reminded me of why I love being a travel agent.

I'm dedicated to my clients, so much so that when one called me mid-vacation (both hers and mine) in a panic due to a missed flight and declined insurance, I got to work and arranged for another flight and transportation to catch up with the rest of their party. Instead of a sacrificing the entire rest of their trip, they only missed a day, and I couldn't have been happier to help.

Education is an important part of providing clients with the most accurate, interesting, and up-to-date information, and I have continued to invest in my accreditation throughout my career. I'm a accredited cruise counselor through CLIA, a Commodore Level agent with Princess Cruises, an AmaWaterways specialist, a Jamaica specialist, and through firsthand knowledge, I offer priceless insight into Alaska.

It's my goal to help each person find the trip, experience, and itinerary that's right for them. No two people are the same, and in that same vein, no one-sized cookie-cutter trip will fit every client. I listen and learn, slowly building a journey unique to the person requesting it. Complicated itineraries are my specialty, and no trip is too big or too small. Are cruises piquing your interest? I can guide you through stateroom selection and clue you in to smaller routes that will let you test your sea legs. Curious about all-inclusive resorts? I know which ones offer the best value without the loud crowds.

Whether you're looking for a two-day trip or a round-the-world bucket list extravaganza you'll never, ever forget, I'll exhaust every avenue and go the extra mile to give you the memories you deserve.

Why I Travel

Venice Italy Lagoon, a city of mystery unlike any
Venice Italy Lagoon, a city of mystery unlike any

As a child growing up, my family rarely traveled. As an adult, I can't get enough of other flavors, colors, cultures, and languages. There is so much to explore beyond my own back door! Every trip teaches me something I didn't know about other areas and people around, and makes me grateful for the wonderful world we live in

Aloha in Style

Reviewed By Shirley - Plainfield IN | Traveled to
Patti was very helpful in planning our trip to Hawaii. She was able to get us the appropriate cruise for what we wanted to see and made suggestions for land excursions. She set us up with first night stay in Honolulu. She is always available by phone or email for quick questions. She is doing some hotel research for me right now for our San Diego trip in the Fall. I enjoy being able to draw on her expertise. Se is very responsive and most always shares something I hadn't thought of.

Plan your vacation with confidence!

Reviewed By Sharon - Indianapolis, IN | Traveled to
Patti assisted me in planning a trip to Punta Cana for 50-75 employees of my company. I didn't know the first thing about traveling out of the country or planning for this many individuals. Patti's service was invaluable. She was with me every step of the way and attended to the details. Patti delivered superior service and was always very responsive and quick to get answers or make requested changes to plans. Patti was very pleasant to work with and was able to take the pain out of planning and made many of the travel arrangements with the carrier and the resort. If I am tasked in the future with planning another trip, Patti will be the first person I call.

She will go the extra mile

Reviewed By Nana - Martinsville, IN | Traveled to
Patti is very knowledgable about her job, and quickly conduct the research if there's something she doesn't know the answer to. Despite the fact we occasionally changed our minds about trip details, she was patient and professional and great fun to work with. She planned both an Alaskan Cruise and the Grand Mediterranean cruise for us. We added a few days to the Italy trip and she was able to assist with that, too. She has set up many types of trips, for varying sizes of groups and has worked hard to make them a success. She definitely goes above and beyond what we expect a tour planner to do. We highly recommend her.

The planner who really knows how to plan!

Reviewed By Kurt - Greenwood, IN | Traveled to
Second trip my wife Jan and I have had the pleasure of working with Patti (Alaska and recent trip to Panama Canal). Patti does an excellent job of putting together a great cruise package and we always feel comfortable the day we leave home knowing our questions have been answered and all of our paperwork is in order. Our recent cruise to the Panama Canal had a special discount early in the process and Patti made sure we knew about it and offered the special to everyone to assist with our overall expense of the trip. We will definitely plan our next long trip with Patti again without any hesitation!

Personal planning

Reviewed By FlamingoFan - Indianapolis, IN | Traveled to
Patti plans like your trip is her own- and sometimes it is as she has arranged great group adventures that she is part of too. Does her homework, works to make everything perfect, and has great suggestions based on your desires. Timely response and a proven network of providers! Go ahead and play online to get ideas but let Patti handle details for you!
