Great Help with a LARGE rental van!

Reviewed By Jill - Santa Clara, CA | Traveled to
Barb was the ONLY travel agent who could find me a 15 passenger van locally in California for me to use driving to my daughter's Oregon wedding. Barb was encouraging and diligent and worked hard to find us what we needed AND within our budget. No hassles! I would definitely use and recommend Barb in the future!

Easy Peasy!

Reviewed By LelaQz - Portland, OR | Traveled to
Barbie helped me put together a very special trip for my mom, her "bucket list" dream cruise to Alaska. This is the 2nd trip she has helped me plan and, like the first one, everything went smoothly and without any problems. (My hard-to-please husband still raves about the Disneyland trip that she put together for us over five years ago!) I will always book with Barbie! The Best!

Barbara made my honeymoon more affordable!

Reviewed By Shaune - Meriden, CT | Traveled to
Barbara is very helpful and knowledge when it comes to planning a great affordable trip! With the stress of my wedding I would have to say booking my honeymoon was the most fun and less stressful thing I had to do! She found the best deal for me and provided me with information that I need to make my vacation a smooth process! I would highly recommend her! The cruise she found for my husband and I was perfect! We had such a great time! I can't wait to book my next vacation with Barbara!

Quick Responder and Great Liaison

Reviewed By Vicki - Redding, CA | Traveled to
As another reviewer mentioned, Barb is quick to respond. She really does drop what she is doing to help out a client. And that is common both at planning and during the trip. Barb was very patient with me as I changed my travel dates, destinations and origin airport several times before finalizing our family vacation. She planned the perfect trip for us, and she really knows her stuff!! And, she really does help out in a pinch! We didn't find out until we got to the airport to return home that the last leg of our flight was cancelled, and we were going to be stranded several hundred miles from home. There were no other flight options. She was quick to reserve us a rental car, get a refund initiated from the airline, and help us with our travel insurance claim for the rental car...all before we landed! Just excellent service!!

Get the best service and creative solutions from Barbara

Reviewed By Roberta D. - Meriden, CT | Traveled to
Barbara is the best travel agent I have ever worked with! She is knowledgeable, responsive, thorough, and delightful, but even more importantly, she provides stellar service above and beyond in everything she does. She works for each client with the same care as though she were planning a trip for her own family, and she makes you feel that you are her exclusive focus. I love that she is creative about solving problems and researching for special issues, like accessibility. There simply is no end to the positive things I could say about working with Barbara. You will enjoy a wonderful vacation and have fun in the process of planning it with her as well. I heartily recommend her.
