Madison, Wisconsin Travel Agent
Leisure Travel Consultant
As a leisure travel specialist, I enjoy providing great customer service, with a smile, and will treat your trip like it is my own. I am a native of Colorado but I now call Madison my home. As a youth, I lived in Haifa, Israel and Canada. In the States. I have lived in Michigan, California, Maryland, Washington DC and Colorado. I have travelled to Europe multiple times visiting London, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Norway and Sweden. My most recent European trip was an Avalon river cruise with a 3-Night (Monograms) extension - ask me about it, I loved it!
I have also had the pleasure of spending time in Indonesia, China, Singapore and the island country of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. My second language is Persian (Farsi). I am, also, learning Mandarin Chinese and Korean. I look forward to meeting you and taking care of all your travel needs!
My Travel Experiences
Italy & Amsterdam
Thank you for your feedback. Yes, the documents were mailed late, since we added, last minute, tours. The electronic documents are, always, sufficient though. * I had this, same, type of experience in China however, I enjoyed it and purchased some very unique and beautiful pearls however, I knew that it would be a "store" experience. I will share your comments, with our tour vendor, so that they can, hopefully, change their approach. * I'm very glad you enjoyed Italy! - Donna C.
We love the river cruise and would do another one!
Thank you. I love river cruising, too! It's a wonderful mode of transportation, to be in a floating hotel. I'm glad to have helped make your travel dreams a reality.
Top of the list as one of the best trips!

Excellent travel agent
Thank you, Mary. I'm so glad that you were able to, still, go on the river cruise. They are a wonderful mode of transportation. I am, always, happy to "go to bat" for my clients. Please reach out to me, any time. Donna C.
A first time new experience!
Everything for our cruise to the Western Carribean fell into place from flight to pick-up and drop off service.
Norwegian Cruise Line was exceptional from the food to the service. The crew were very friendly.
We met people in ports from other cruise lines Carnival and Mediterranean - they were not satisfied with their cruise accomodations and their crew.
Thank you for your find words. It has been a pleasure working with your family and I look forward to assisting with your next adventure! All my best, Donna C.
The trip was a once in a lifetime experience and e
with all those reimbursements and then, robooking when we were ready, a year later. Everything went very well! Donna has also helped me with some international travel including arrangemens for “wheelchair assistance.”
Thank you for your feedback. River cruising are one of my, absolute, favorite modes of travel and once you go on one, you're hooked! I'm glad you enjoy it as much as I do. As you know, I remain at your service. Thank you for your, continued, business.
