A trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Joanne - East Lyme, CT | Traveled to Croatia ~ Europe
Karen helped us plan a custom trip to Croatia. She was thoughtful in her suggested itinerary. The hotels were convenienty located, and the restaurants she recommended were phenomenal. She arranged for a local guide in each location as well as our transportation between locations we visited. Her attention to detail was fantastic. We book all of our trips through Karen and trust her completely with our travel plans.

Karen is an All-Star Travel Agent

Reviewed By Lee-Ann & Ryan - Drexel Hill | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Karen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is very thorough and detail -oriented. She organized our honeymoon to Hawaii and we could not have asked for a better trip. She gave us so many options in the beginning and really listened to our interests and what we were looking for. We knew we wanted a nice relaxing trip to unwind from the wedding, we love the beach but we also love adventure. She suggested Kauai and Maui. We were able to enjoy the beaches, really found some romantic quality time, and we were also able to go on quite a few excursions such as kayaking, snorkeling, and visiting some really remarkable sights. Karen really helped in mapping out our trip and staying within our budget. The hotels and restaurants she suggested were very lovely. This trip was definitely a dream come true. Karen was also extremely helpful when we found out that our flights got cancelled on the way home. She is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone!

African Safari

Reviewed By Cathy - Mundelein illinois | Traveled to South Africa ~ Africa. Zimbabwe
Just returned from a two week trip/safari to Africa- using our Travel Agent Karen Boike Once again we were extremely pleased with all her expertise in planning the perfect care-free vacation. This trip took a lot of coordinating as we stayed in 4 different places and took over 10 different flights to three different countries. Accommodations and planned excursions were excellent and she provided tons of information regarding money, tipping, clothing, cameras, shots needed etc. We felt very prepared. Her Best recommendation was that we do two different safari experiences and this proved to be so worthwhile. Karen really knows her stuff and we benefit from her knowledge every trip we take.

Karen was responsive and efficient in getting all we needed for our trip. From private drivers to train tickets to great hotels, she handled everything.

Best Travel Advisor

Reviewed By pointmom - Gloucester Point, VA | Traveled to Mexico
Karen has an amazing amount of knowledge in the travel world. She can suggest amazing trips with more than amazing add ons for local trips when you get to your destination. Her accommodation recommendations are always 5 star and spot on. Our trips had private transfers where we always felt safe. The travel docs arrive at your home in a manner easy to follow several days before your trip. She has suggested everything from the best flight times, to 5 star airlines (we didn't even know airlines had ratings) and hotels to stay before our flights. Several of our trips included personal guides and transportation for the day or even week. These local guides were Cozumel, Mayan Riviera x 2, Ireland and best of all Thailand for 2 weeks. We have recommended her to our relatives, friends and coworkers who are always as impressed as we are. Karen we look forward to going many many more places with your help.

A Great Adventure

Reviewed By George - Lemoyne, PA | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
She was a valued partner in all aspects of travel planning for our 28 day trip to New Zealand and Tahiti. She presents suggestions and options with insights gained from her personal experience and from reports from her prior customers. She is prompt and thorough in her research on suggestions we made to her based on input from friends of ours who had been there previously. She tailors physical activities (treks, kayaking, biking, glacier climbs) to requested exertion levels. She suggested a few upgrades in accommodations that proved to be well worth the added cost as she was able to obtain room rates below those I was able to find by going direct. I have done most of our travel planning without the assistance of an agent. I found the assistance Karen was able to provide as clearly value-added.

Karen Boike responded:
George, thank you for the fantastic review! It was a pleasure working with you. I look forward to helping you with your future travel adventures! Karen

Stress free planning!

Reviewed By Marcella - Philadelphia, Pa | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Karen was absolutely amazing to work with! I reached out to her with an idea for a trip, my budget, and dates and she was able to put together the perfect package for myself and the friend I was traveling with. She asked just a few questions about our interests and planned perfect excursions for us. When we were looking at flights, hotels, and tours on our own it was very overwhleming and much more costly. Karen was able to highight the best cities to see and the best sites to see in those cities. She was always very responsive throughout the booking process and even while we were away. We had some flight issues upon departure and she was on the phone after we emailed her at 10:30 pm trying to make sure we had the best flight and still had the seats we wanted. When things changed on the trip because of weather she was there to help us find other options and made sure we got a refund for the tour we were unable to go on. She definitely made some last minute changes less stressful!
