Jewish Historic Travel Expert

Track Seventeen

Walking in the footsteps of our ancestors is possible. I can help you uncover the historical and culturally significant side of all Europe has to offer. "Exploring the corners of our past - illuminating and ensuring our future."

Imagine!

Descending into an ancient subterranean chamber, climbing down steep stone steps and at the very bottom, discovering five immersion pools of a 5th century Jewish Mikveh, the oldest known to survive in Europe. Join us on the intriguing island of Ortygia.

Standing in the footsteps of 50,000 terrified Jewish families on Track Seventeen at the Grunewald train Station where they waited to be deported. Join with fellow travelers in saying Kaddish for those that never returned in the pulsating city of Berlin.

Stepping into a family home and enjoying the aroma of the Shabbat dinner being prepared for your group. Sitting at the table with your new Jewish Moroccan friends and listening to the family stories of survival. Join us in the exotic city of Marrakech.

Entering the portals of a Sephardic Synagogue that was built in 1315 and learning about the golden age of Jewish philosophers, poets and entrepreneurs creating a magnificent partnership between Jews and Muslims. Join us as we wander the mysterious alleyways of Cordoba.

Discover the Diaspora through the eyes of Jewish History Travels!

The best travel agent ever!

Reviewed By Rorie - Potomac, Maryland | Traveled to Czech Republic ~ Europe
I have used Carla's expertise in planning vacations and general travel for approximately 20 years and that alone should be a strong endorsement. Carla is a unique professional in that she not only is an expert in travel arrangements, hotels, transportation, and geographic destinations, but is someone who personally cares about her clients. She is unruffled with a kind and caring quality ensuring that every trip experience is a wonderful memory- numerous trips to Europe, Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic and cruises.

The most informative trip of our lives!

Reviewed By Informed traveler - Columbia, MD | Traveled to Sicily ~ Italy ~ Europe
We found her very easy to work with. She answered all our concerns without making us feel that our concerns were not important. We had a meeting before we left for our trip and were able to meet the others on our tour including our tour leader. We were given information about our accommodations, our free time and resources to read before we left.

Carla Koller, Our Travel Guru

Reviewed By Potomac Travelers - Potomac, MD | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Dear Sir or Madam,

Simply put, if there were a Hall of Fame for travel agents, Carla Koller would be a unanimous inductee. She has a unique ability to grasp the trips we envision and to transform our conceptions into reality. Her knowledge of transportation, lodging, and fares is encyclopedic, but her imagination and insight -- born of her clear love of travel -- never fails to enrich our experiences in most creative and exciting ways. Carla not only excels in follow-through (enacting our preferred choices), but in follow-up (keeping us fully informed as things fall into place). In the past year alone, she has assisted our travels to Scotland, England, France, and Albania. All were immense successes. Ireland is now in train and we know it will be, too. She is a pleasure to work with. So let's be perfectly clear: we no longer consider going anywhere without the aid and advice of the incomparable Carla Koller.

Sincerely,
Maryruth Coleman and John Withers
Potomac, Maryland

Top-Notch Travel Agent

Reviewed By Linda & Jerry - Potomac, MD | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We have been extremely pleased with the travel services provided by Carla Koller of the Travel Place in Potomac, MD. We have used Carla for numerous trips since 2006. Our most recent trip was to Italy. She did a fabulous job in helping us decide where to visit and what to see; in booking all the hotels, car rentals, tours, and airline tickets; and in providing numerous travel tips to make our trip as pleasant as possible. She was also very mindful of our budget. Over the years, we have been very impressed with Carla’s travel knowledge and competency. Last, but not least, Carla is a delight to work with. She has a very warm personality, and she is a lot of fun. Carla is a top-notch travel agent and we highly recommend her.

Memorable trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Sandy - Rockville, Maryland | Traveled to USA
My husband and I wanted to plan a memorable dual 50th wedding anniversary and 70th birthday trip to the West Coast. No pressure there!

We immediately thought of Carla Koller because we had friends who had experienced her guided tours overseas and they had related her many personal trips as well.

We had very specific "wants" and she listened carefully, asked knowing questions, considered our ages and budget, and then put together an amazing 21 day trip. She saved us money on our flights by researching multiple options and booked us in the most fantastic hotel in San Francisco for an extremely reasonable price.

Carla is knowledgable, efficient, considerate, and reliable. We felt like we were her only clients. Highly recommend her to plan your trips both national and international. Thank you Carla.
