Lori was outstanding in helping us plan our trip to Southern Germany, Italy, and Amsterdam. Because of her detailed planning, everything went smoothly from hotel stays, daily tours, and all of our transportation which included planes, trains, and transfer drivers. She planned our trip around what we wanted to see and do and added wonderful suggestions along the way. We will definitely use Lori in our future travels. We just wish we had found her sooner.

Disney with Daughters and Granddaughters

Reviewed By paula - Chanhassen | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
I'm so glad I contacted Lori when we decided to visit Disney World! Her knowledge and enthusiasm were evident from our initial meeting. There is an overwhelming amount of information on Disney and Lori was able to "translate" and present this to me in an organized manner. We had decided to stay at a Disney property and Lori provided options that best fit our needs. She offered advice on planning park visits and it was very comforting to know that Lori was sharing her personal experiences with us. She told us about grocery delivery and transportation options. Lori responded quickly to emails, was very willing to meet in person, reminded me of "deadlines" (dining options, fast-pass, etc.) Lori was patient with all my questions. Our trip was absolutely wonderful! I would return to Lori again without hesitation. If you are planning a trip to Disney (or elsewhere) don't do it alone! Let Lori help you sift through all the information and arrange a magical Disney trip!

As in the past, Lori has found just the right places to stay to maximize vacation fun. She finds the right hotel in the right price range with a ton of knowlege about what to do. She made our recent NYC trip very easy and fun for first timers. We loved the shuttle from Fort Lee Doubletree and the hop on hop off tour she suggested.

Italian Honeymoon

Reviewed By John W - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We had Lori plan our honeymoon in Italy. I had been to Italy before, but found the process of finding hotels, car service providers and purchasing train tickets to be very challenging and not something I wanted to do leading up to the wedding.

We provided Lori with a draft of our desired itinerary and she worked to create a plan for us that included 3 cities, 3 hotels, car service to and from various locations as well as getting us train tickets for parts of our trip.

Everything was first class and at a very high level of quality. The hotels were great, the car service was invaluable and every aspect of our trip was so well organized that it allowed us to relax and really enjoy the honeymoon.

Lori really created a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us and we are already talking about trying to go back and visit the beautiful places we discovered on this trip.

I highly recommend Lori as a valuable travel planning resource and plan to use her services again in the near future.

Planning is a key

Reviewed By Inna - MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Planning is a key for us. When we travel we want to see as much as possible and never stay in one place for too long. The four people in our family have different interests, and we are trying to include something for everyone. The trip to Italy that we booked with Lori was very complex. We managed to cover a lot of ground, see popular cultural attractions, walk nature trails and go on tours. We wasted no time to stand in lines or study train schedules. Lori has outstanding organisation skills which allowed us to be well prepared and accomplish all our goals. The most helpful for me is fact that Lori travels a lot herself. That makes her advice even more valuable and relevant to the realities of the place visited. I love working with Lori and hopeful to travel again with her help and expertise in the future.

Lori is the the best!

Reviewed By Nancy F. - Minneapolis | Traveled to Mexico
Lori is the most wonderful travel agent I have worked with. I have trusted her year after year with our travel plans and I know I can trust her to know my style and get all the details right. She is incredibly knowledgeable about travel locations & options, but never pushes her own agenda. I also value her input and ideas - she is more of a planning partner than an agent sometimes. Lori is a true customer service gem and I wouldn't work with anyone else!

The hills are definitely alive!

Reviewed By Anniversary Couple - Winter Garden, FL | Traveled to Europe
Lori was able to let us rely on her for as much or as little help that we needed for our anniversary trip to Europe (Bavaria). Her own traveling experiences in Europe were a huge help for tips and tricks abroad. She provided multiple options of places to stay and things to do. We had our most challenge with feeling right about a hotel in Salzburg and she took the time to contact us and figure out what exactly we were looking for and was able to find the perfect place for us to stay. We really appreciated the time that she spent researching all sorts of tours and hotel accommodations to fit our needs. It was also very helpful that she set up a time to talk with us to review our itinerary day by day, review all our travel documents that were provided and what we needed to do for each part of the trip. She was always available and open for any questions that we had and answered them all! It was so nice that she was able to spend the time researching for us so we didn't have to!

The BIGGEST Asset when planning a trip!

Reviewed By Mike - Mendota Heights, MN | Traveled to Europe
We have used Lori multiple times over the past few years and have recommended her services to others. She is an invaluable asset when it comes to booking a trip. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about the different places we have booked, but she makes herself available in times of need.

A perfect example of this took place last summer, in which we had booked a 2 week trip to Europe. It was so easy to plan this trip with her and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Our transfers and train tickets were booked, our hotels and every detail was laid out in a way the was so easy to navigate! We had some issues with our luggage getting to us, and a quick call to Lori eased our fears. She gave us all of the necessary information to locate them, and even made calls on our behalf to get things taken care of. One of the best things about working with Lori is that she is not just in it to make the sale - she followed our trip up to and during the entire thing.

Best Trip

Reviewed By J and T - Eden Prairie, MN | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
We have had Lori plan many trips for us. She listens to what we would like from the trip and the accommodations we are looking for. She knows our traveling style (early flights, non-stop (if possible), seat location, etc.) and works hard at getting a flight that works for us. Lori is very responsive to our questions and concerns. Lori keeps in contact through emails/phone calls and always meets with us the week before our trip and goes over the reservations and any questions we have. On our last trip, we were concerned about our flight leaving due to weather. Lori was quick to book us a flight for the night before and made lodging reservations for us. We would highly recommend Lori for your next trip.

Magical vacation

Reviewed By Don and Julie - Burnsville, MN | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
We have been working with Lori for over 10 years. She is outstanding and knows her stuff. We typically take a trip to Mexico, and have also done the Disney World experience. She gets as to the perfect locations, makes the entire trip hassle free and convenient, and finds great prices. We look to Lori to find the destination and resorts that fit exactly what we want, and Lori delivers. She finds the perfect resort, the private transfers, the upgrades, and then - to top it off- the best deals. For our Disney World experience, she made the experience magical and our daughter to this day talks about how wonderful the trip was. Lori knew every secret that there is to the Disney experience. We have referred many of our friends and family to Lori. She is excellent!
