Bethesda, Maryland Travel Agent
Leisure Travel Consultant
I also work with some of our corporate travelers and enjoy the challenge of developing complicated international flight itineraries.
My favorite places to travel and to help others visit include Walt Disney World (of course!), the National Parks of the U.S., the Caribbean, and Europe (especially France and Great Britain). I'm also a Certified Cruise Counselor and enjoy cruising and planning cruise vacations – anything from 5 days on the St Lawrence River to 110 days around the world.
In my free time, I bake fabulous homemade cookies and have a reputation throughout the Travel Place community and beyond for these special treats, especially during the holidays.
From a happy and loyal customer...
"Could not have been better"
I wanted to send you a note to thank you for all your help and wonderful insights in planning our family vacation. Our trip could not have been better! Your hotel choices, transport arrangements and all the little details really were fantastic. I certainly would not have been able to plan nor book the locations and travel with the expertise and knowledge that you did. We’ll very much look forward to having you plan our next adventure! Thank you again,
Amazing Holland and the Netherlands
I wanted to thank you very much for our trip. We had an amazing time and can't wait to go back! We look forward to working with you again for our next adventure.
River cruise perfection
I want to thank you for doing such a great job in putting together our trip! I fell in love with Paris which I wasn't expecting and the Moulin Rouge was amazing! The river cruise couldn't have been more perfect... impeccable service, food and accommodations. Everything was so well organized I didn't have to think for 2 weeks. I also loved all the port towns we visited and Prague was so lovely and fun to walk. Thanks for holding my hand and getting me there!!!
Elaine is the best!
Thank you for your review. I am so glad you had a wonderful and memorable trip; I enjoyed working on it with you. We'll have to try again sometime for those "weather-dependent activities"! Elaine
Beyond the call of duty
We were pleased with the affordable price she was able to secure for the flights, which made our trip viable. However, we were even more pleased with how she helped us undo those tickets last week, when we came to the sad decision of not attending the Olympics due to the many problems Brazil is facing right now.
In addition to dealing with our kids’ disappointment of missing the games, we were very concerned about the financial implications of changing flights at this point. Luckily for us, Elaine went out of her way to figure out how to reroute our tickets and still ensure that part of the money will be refunded by the airlines.
We are extremely grateful for her effort and time, and will consider Elaine our go-to travel agent for years to come!
Thanks very much, Ilana. I'm sorry circumstances forced you to cancel your trip to the Olympics, but I am glad we were able to keep it from costing you money to change the airline tickets. I will be happy to help you with future travel. Elaine
Trip of a Lifetime
Thank you so much for this review. It was a joy to plan your trip, with the help of a good Africa tour operator, and I am so pleased it was a trip of a lifetime! Elaine
