Escorted Tours, Europe and Caribbean Travel

What makes you want to travel?

  • History, culture, food, architecture – let’s talk Europe
  • Warm weather and the beach- time for the Caribbean
  • A group to share the experience – learn about Sonja’s Boutique Group Trips

Both island living and the European lifestyle offer a more relaxed pace that gives you time to enjoy all that is around you, whether going as a couple or with a large group.

 

I put together my first "Sonja's Boutique Group Trip" in 2013. This structured small group experience, traveled from place to place via cruise ship, seeing the highlights of the cities and many off the beaten path places.  On my escorted trips, everything is handled for you: private tours, transfers, taxis, and trains for each destination.

I loved being able to share this experience with others, some of whom had never been out of the country before. Having a tour leader that they knew well helped them to feel more secure, and the small group size gave the tour a very intimate feel.

My clients appreciate my prompt responsiveness and follow-through. I know they feel secure in having a live person they can contact who has a genuine interest in them and is on their side when things like lost luggage or missing tickets come up.

My customized itineraries cover every detail of their adventure, and I always work within their budget to make their dream vacation a reality.

More “Sonja’s Boutique Group Trip’s” are coming and I would love to have you along.
I promise you the time of your life!

Client Testimonial

Portofino, Italy
Portofino, Italy

If you want unique travel experiences, you need to have Sonja take charge of the planning.  She serves each client specifically and personally from start to finish. She will plan the simple or the spectacular. She is constantly looking for out-of-the-ordinary experiences to recommend for your travel.  Beyond that she gathers information, looks at evaluations and reviews, makes personal contacts to the places and people she is recommending, and makes sure all details are checked and double checked.  We sit back and relax knowing not only that everything will be planned, we will have all the information we need, and Sonja will be there if any problem emerges.

50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Reviewed By Spain/France - Uniontown, Ohio | Traveled to Europe
We wanted to celebrate our 50th anniversary hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain & taking a barge cruise in France. We usually schedule our own tours, but this time we needed help coordinating the two. We contacted Sonja and she spent time sharing information & tips without any definite commitment from us. She was patient with us while we decided which barge cruise was perfect for us. Then she did the difficult work of coordinating our travel between locations & hotels in Spain & France. Our trip planning & communication was handled seamlessly via phone, email & internet. Prior to our trip we met with Sonja to go over our itinerary, provide us with our tickets, vouchers & give us a mini class on using WHATSAPP to send text & photos to friends & family. We had a great trip. Everything went smoothly, no missed connections, no delays, no lost luggage, it was perfect! Did we have a great trip? You bet! It was perfect! Would we use Sonja for our next trip? Of course!

Great honeymoon!

Reviewed By Mary - Baltimore, MD | Traveled to
We had a wonderful honeymoon to Cancun planned by Sonja. Her recommendation for the all inclusive resort fit everything we needed and after seeing some of the other resorts ours clearly was the best. She not only planned our trip, she also set up a registry so our wedding guests could help pay for excursions for our stay, which many said was a great alternative to a standard wedding gift. We also were given a honeymoon upgrade package by the resort with the directions Sonja gave us. Without her advice we may not have been aware of such a great offer. We will definitely use her agin soon.

It has been a pleasure to work with Sonja. Went on a group tour over a month long and overseas. The booking and planning process took a long time, and there were many questions.

Another Fabulous Cruise!!

Reviewed By Mike and Diane - Stow, Ohio | Traveled to Panama Canal ~ Panama ~ Central America
Sonja does a great job and pays attention to detail from the beginning of our planning to the end of the trip. She even took into consideration that I use a CPAP machine and requested from the cruise line distilled water and an extension cord in our cabin which I need for my CPAP machine without my asking. This is the third trip we arranged through Sonja and she always exceeds our expectations. My wife and I just love working with her.

Incredible Danube Riverboat Cruise

Reviewed By Scootercrunch - DesMoines, IA | Traveled to
Thank goodness I know Sonja Roe, not just an awesome travel agent; however, a wonderful, loving, family person as well. Sonja made me aware of the riverboat trip that I just returned from, specials related to that trip, and provided communication throughout the time leading up to the trip, and follow up after returning. Sonja brought to my attention a special at the time, free airfare for booking at a certain time, This saved me well over $1000 on my trip! The riverboat cruise was not just an average cruise, it was clearly a five star cruise line (AMA Waterways is incredible); moreover, we had a wine tasting theme to our cruise as well. Approximately two weeks prior to our trip I was notified by Sonja that our cabin on the cruise received a free upgrade, this would have cost $700 per person otherwise. Whenever I had a question or a concern regarding this trip I could e mail, text, or contact Sonja through Facebook and she would respond very promptly. She obviously has experience, knowledge and the expertise to the job; moreover, she has the personality, empathy, and understanding that makes it feel more like your friend is helping you plan your trip then a travel agent. During my trip and after my trip Sonja was in contact with me to follow up on things and make sure everything went as planned. She commented on posts on Facebook during my trip, and always seemed focused on making sure I had the best vacation that could be provided. Overall this was an awesome vacation. If I had not heard about this trip from Sonja Roe I would have not had this great experience. Her expertise made the planning of the trip a breeze, her personality and professionalism made every step a pleasure. No matter how big or small your vacation plans I would recommend Sonja Roe with the highest regards. Her knowledge, insight, experience, and diligence will help find your vacation; her personality, caring, and professionalism will make planning your vacation a joy.

Sonja delivers ... again!

Reviewed By Janet R - Stow, Ohio | Traveled to Peru ~ South America
My husband and I have just come home from another fabulous trip that Sonja put together for us ... this time to Peru. Sonja finds just the perfect excursions, hotels and travel routes. We have our own business which keeps us very busy, so when we book a vacation with Sonja we know that she will handle all the details superbly. All we have to do is pack and have a great time.

We started in Lima, complete with a bike ride along the Pacific coast. Then to Sacred Valley, discovering ancient Inka ruins, trekking through trails from bygone civilizations. Our vacation ended perfectly with some down time in the Amazonian rainforest and another first class hacienda.

We are so very grateful for the careful and thoughtful work Sonja puts into our travels. She makes vacation stress-free. She listens to our preferences and then delivers beyond our expectations. Thank you, Sonja … looking forward to an African safari next time.

Boutique Tour of Spain and Portugal

Reviewed By Betty - Poinciana, FL | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
Sonja created our dream trip to Spain and Portugal. As a part of her Boutique experience, she developed an incredible itinerary that included our interests, personal travel needs, cities, and sites we wanted to experience. She selected very professional and knowledgeable local guides for much of the itinerary, but even as we were traveling, Sonja added excursions and activities that she felt we would enjoy. Everywhere we went from the transatlantic cruise, train and bus stations, to car rentals, tour vans, and taxis, the process was easy for us and flawless. The Boutique tour offered opportunities to explore, interact and increase our understanding of the people, cultures and history of Portugal and Spain their cities, villages and countryside. The accommodations, delicious food, and breath-taking sights, resulted in a vacation that lives on in our memories. With Sonja's personalized service it was beyond what we could have expected. We can't recommend Travel with Sonja enough.

GREAT CRUISE & FANTASTIC FRENCH OPEN

Reviewed By Bob - Fallston, MD | Traveled to Bordeaux ~ France ~ Europe
The river cruise through Bordeaux country was excellent with many wine tasting experiences and great guides taking us along the countryside. Viking was excellent with their service

The flights were problematic due to the required connections - multiple layovers are always stressful and annoying. The cost saving on airfare does not facilitate the journey.

The French Open was fantastic to attend - a bucket list item fulfilled! Paris is my favorite city in the world. It is always exhilarating to visit.

European Boutique Trip--2015

Reviewed By Betty - Solivita, FL | Traveled to
We just completed the boutique travel trip and cruise arranged by Sonja. Not only did we get to enjoy our first-ever Avalon river cruise (a great experience by itself) but Sonja worked to add just the right activities for us both before the cruise and after. We started with three days in Florence based in a great downtown apartment. Among other activities, we enjoyed a unique walking food tour exploring the old city market and specialty food shops, and a personally guided tour of the Tuscany countryside and wineries. We then headed to the Tuscana Mia cooking school. The cooking classes plus two nights in the Italian farmhouse will be a memory for life. We then traveled on an overnight train to Vienna for the river cruise. Again a first-time experience but Sonja’s planning made it extremely easy and comfortable. The Avalon river cruise Sonja selected for us was a special “Beer Cruise”. We were surprised and pleased that Europe’s “Beer Pope”. Conrad Seidl was along on the cruise to provide special insights, lead tours, and provide selections and commentary for an on-ship beer pairings dinner. Sonja also planned and coordinated some side excursions for both brewery tours and historical sites that enhanced our trip beyond the general cruise itinerary. As our cruise ended in Munich, Sonja scheduled visits to Munich’s historical city center, the original Hofbrauhaus, and we even took the risk to participate in a really fun bicycle tour that took us through the very heart of Munich to see the city up close and personal. What a great trip. Thanks to Sonja for offering this special type of adventure and making sure everything went smoothly. We got to sit back and enjoy! We can’t wait for the next boutique travel experience.

Stres Free Travel - Sonja takes care of every detail!!!

Reviewed By TinaC. - Twinsburg, Ohio | Traveled to
Sonja has planned two trips we have been on. The first one was a land/cruise trip to Alaska for 13 people. Wonderful trip. Out luggage got lost on the flight coming out, and she worked all morning long to get it to us, and we had it by evening the day before all of our traveling began. One of the most amazing, worry free vacations we have ever been on. She also planned a week and a half trip for us to the Florida Keys. She provided us with all kinds of ideas for side trips and excellent restaurants. The two Bed and Breakfast Resorts we stayed at were top notch! We will definitely use Sonja for all of our travel needs in the future .

Working with Sonja to plan our honeymoon was wonderful! Sonja was very knowledgable about the cruise line we went on and about Alaska in general.

We have worked with Sonja Roe for roughly 3 years. She is AWESOME. Not only did she help us find good places to go, she is always on top of things. We ran into some major personal issues the day before one of our trips and Sonja handled everything to change our reservations. That took so much pressure off our shoulders while we were dealing with a family issue. She handled all the changes and we still went on our trip. Recently a new resort we booked did not make their opening date, so we had to change resorts. Sonja stayed in touch with the resort company and made sure we got everything that we paid for PLUS a bonus extra trip! I never have any worries when I plan my trips with Sonja.

The Best in So Many Ways

Reviewed By Betty & Jim - Florida | Traveled to
Andara Travel with Sonja has been our go-to travel planner for several years now and we wouldn’t consider another travel agent or attempt to book travel online by ourselves. Sonja is not only the most professional travel agent but is continuously on the lookout for things she believes we would enjoy or presenting us with possibilities we hadn’t really considered before. What makes Sonja stand out is that she truly enjoys traveling and takes every opportunity to travel herself to gain information she can pass on to her clients. She also is constantly involved in professional development to gain specialized qualifications and certifications. Most importantly to us, Sonja really works to understand us as clients and what our interests, needs, and preferences are. She uses that information whenever she develops a travel itinerary for us so we can be sure everything will be stress-free and enjoyable. In the few instances where things didn’t go according to plan (as they will do when you travel), Sonja is a text-message or phone call away and immediately goes to work to resolve the issue—again, no hassle for us. If you like to travel, whether experienced or a newbie, we believe you won’t go wrong if you work with Andara Travel with Sonja.

We searched for several weeks and couldn't find exactly what we wanted. We heard of Sonja through a family member and gave her a call. Our search was over! We literally booked our vacation that same day. We told her what type of vacation we were looking for (lots of sun), our dates and our budget and she was able to give us instant options. Sonja was easy to work with and so efficient. We were very pleased with our mother/daughter Western Caribbean Cruise and will definitely book through her again! Thanks, Sonja!

She allowed us to sit back and plan our wedding

Reviewed By Andy - Port Clinton, OH | Traveled to
My wife and I just returned from Jamaica - a trip that Sonja arranged from beginning to end as we focused on our wedding. We could not have been more happy with the experience. To start, she gave us a variety of locations and descriptions and price ranges. When we decided on a destination, she created a registry online for guests to visit and provide a monetary gift to offset our honeymoon costs. She gave us all of our information before our trip with a detailed itinerary which was very helpful. Upon our arrival back home, she went out of her way to call us and ask about our experience. I could not brag Sonja up enough. I look forward to booking another trip with her sooner than later! Andy

No worries on vacation with Sonja's help!

Reviewed By Connie - Stow, OH | Traveled to
Sonja was able to suggest a great resort for us and arranged all of our travel, including transportation. Having been our first trip to Mexico and not knowing much about the area she was able to provide us valuable information on what to expect, what to look out for, and suggested a beautiful resort within our budget. We had a great family vacation and highly recommend Sonja! We will most definitely reach out to her again in the future!

Sonja made our trip a memory that we will never forget!

Reviewed By Joanne - Twinsburg, Oh | Traveled to
Our hotels, meals and entertainment were top notch. Our guide was amazing! Very informative, helpful and considerate. We were with our two sons ages 49 and 47 and our guide helped to arrange a little surprise party for us on an excursion in Tuscany. We were in Italy with our sons celebrating our fiftieth wedding anniversary. Sonja helped us to make arrangements for a driver to pick us up at our hotel and take us to the airport, as we stayed in Italy and extra day to visit a town and home where my husband's father was born. They home is still in the family so all of us got to go in it. Many great times and memories were made on our trip to Italy!

She Nailed It!!

Reviewed By Traveling Beyond Borders - Stow, Ohio | Traveled to
My husband and I always wanted to go to Vietnam. After a very busy time (we run our business together) we needed that special vacation to make it feel like all the hard work was paying off - BUT we didn't have the time to do all the planning for such an extensive vacation. Sonja Rocked It! She had a variety of up and down time, selecting the perfect tours and excursions for our 2-week stay. We went throughout the country. Sonja made all the place/car arrangements so that we travelled without any glitches. She had us in impeccable (all 4 & 5 star) accommodations. She kept us within our budget. I could have never included all that she packed into our vacation if I had tried to put it together myself. I cannot say enough about how thrilled we were with this amazing trip that wouldn't have been possible without Sonja.

Our Vacation of a life time

Reviewed By Mike and Bobbie - Southern Ohio | Traveled to
My wife and I have never left the united states, and we always wanted to go on a cruise. Sonja, helped us plan a dream vacation. She helped us with everything from getting our passports our air fair to recommending the best shore excursion we had... A lobster lunch on Antiqua, St Johns. I honestly feel Sonja cared about our happiness. Celebrity Cruises was out of this world. My wife and I already want to go on another cruise and I'm sure Sonja will come through with another dream vacation. Thanks again for everything Sonja

Best Vacation Experience I've Had

Reviewed By Paul - West Des Moines, IA | Traveled to
My most recent vacation, a Danube River cruise on AMA Waterways, was the best vacation I have ever taken. This is in large part thanks to Sonja. This was my first experience using a travel agent to plan a vacation. As someone who always plans all the details of a vacation, I had a lot of questions. Sonja was quick to respond to all of my questions and very helpful leading me through he process. She asked questions of us and made recommendations that made our vacation even better. She made sure we had what we needed every step of the way. When it came time to the actual vacation, we didn't have to worry about any details, because she had taken care of all of them. That let us just enjoy the experience. I have recommended Sonja as a travel agent to several friends (including new friends we made on the trip), and am already working with her for our next trip in the spring.
