Love spending time with my family!! Germany Epcot
Love spending time with my family!! Germany Epcot

Vacations are among the best memories in my life and sharing those special memories with ones I love is priceless. But, I know there are challenges involved. I travel every year with a group from infants to grandparents and it is so wonderful. Let me share with you tips that have worked well for us that ensure everyone has a great time. There are certain keys that help - being organized, having time together and time in subsets of the larger group, and picking the right place to go. I can help you with all this. 15 years ago the best thing ever happened to me and I became a mom. Being a mom did not stop me at all from going on amazing vacations and she was by my side from when she was an infant. I now have 3 children ages 8, 13 and 15 and we have been all over together. I know a lot of people are reluctant to take children on vacations. But, it can be such a wonderful experience. Those shared memories are so precious and I love how it is a time when I can be completely in the moment and focused on them instead of all the other day to day distractions. I know what helps at different ages and can help pick out a vacation that will work well. Contact me today to get started and you won't regret it!

Bucket List Trip!

Reviewed By Jennifer - Roanoke, VA | Traveled to Ivalo ~ Finland ~ Europe
Entire process working with Heidi for my bucket list trip to Finland was great. While I travel in the US several times a year this was only my 2nd time out of the country. Heidi helped me feel more comfortable knowing what documents I needed to travel and had some great tips for International travel. The hotel was a winter fairyland (I stayed in a glass igloo and saw the northern lights!) The activities that she scheduled for me were lots of fun - dog sledding, snowmobiling, even visiting Santa Claus. Finland is perfect for anyone who wants to see the northern lights. I plan to use Heidi for all of my future travels and highly recommend her as a travel agent.

Memory of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Cindy - Poughquag, NY | Traveled to Antigua ~ Antigua & Barbuda ~ Caribbean
Heidi was a pleasure to work worth. From the very first day 9 months prior to our vacation she was right on. We weren't sure exactly were we wanted to go in the Caribbean but we knew we wanted somewhere special to celebrate our marriage of 30 years. We decided Sandals Grande Antigua, an all inclusive couples resort was the place for us!! Heidi was with us every step of the way! We received spa credit for a couples massage that was delightful. She suggested that we may want to "Retie the Knot" which I am so grateful we took the opportunity to do. It was a lovely ceremony, a memory we will cherish forever! We felt well informed about the resort from attire to restaurants, all inclusive water sports etc. If you are looking for a travel agent that cares about your needs Heidi is the one for you!! We will definitely book our next vacation with her.

Hawaii for every age

Reviewed By Traveling Nana - Beekman, NY | Traveled to Kapolei, Hawaii ~ Hawaii ~ USA
I kept seeing ads for Disney Hawaii and I called Heidi to plan an amazing week for my grand daughter and myself. She booked a Ko'Olina Beach club in Kapolei about 20 min from Honolulu which suited me and we could take a short walk over to the Disney one. I like this area because not so much traffic as a city but close to see Pearl Harbor. Loved going to a small rural Catholic church where native Hawaiians sang so beautifully. Not everyone in Hawaii is rich but their spirit impressed me. We also had a breakfast away from resorts where the locals stop which was fun. Within a short,easy walk there was a "mall" with free hula dancers and musicians which made for an inexpensive evening out. Thank you Heidi

Fabulous Danube River Cruise

Reviewed By Paul - New York, New York | Traveled to Danube ~ On the River ~ At Sea
Heidi booked us a trip on an AmaWaterways river cruise for the Christmas markets along the Danube to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I had heard of low water levels on the Danube. We received several e-mails from her informing us of the potential changes to the itinerary. These kept us informed of what was going on and helped us to make our final decision on whether to go or not. Leading up to our trip she would reach out to us to see if we had any questions or concerns. She always wanted to make sure we knew what was happening and that there were no issues. We still went and had a fabulous time. Heidi arranged for us to eat dinner one night at the Chef's table which offered unparalleled service and food. After we returned home we received a letter and small gift from her thanking us for booking with her and to keep her in mind when we traveled again. We will and plan to book future trips with her.

Fun, Adventure, Tasting, Shopping

Reviewed By Jean and Tom - Bath, PA | Traveled to Greece , Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia and Venice, Italy
Excellent planning. All reservations were perfect and exactly what we wanted. While planning our trip all questions were answered quickly. While on our Empires of the Mediterranean Viking Ocean cruise and our stay in Venice, Italy we knew that if any problem arose Heidi would be there to walk us through or solve our problems. A great comfort when you are so far away from home in countries who's languages you do not speak.

Personalized Service Extraordinaire!

Reviewed By Amy P - Lorton, VA | Traveled to Baltic
Work with Heidi, and your travel planning woes are over! Oftentimes, organizing a family trip for a group with different tastes, ages, and interests makes you need a vacation by the time it's all over. Not so with Heidi at the helm planning our Baltic Cruise. Quick to respond with industry knowledge to guide our choices, Heidi ensured we received outstanding value every step of the way. She found airfares with outstanding savings and a convenient and beautiful hotel, prior to the cruise. She helped us board from two different ports (coming from two different states), eased the challenge of shore excursion decision making for less experienced travelers in the family (that would ordinarily fall to me), and took the initiative to book complimentary entertainment at the time of our booking before it filled up. When we are ready to travel again as a family, we will call Heidi for her exceptional service, remarkable responsiveness, and great kindness.

Best Baltic cruise to remember for family!

Greatest help with our family cruise to the Baltic Sea area: from the planning stage thru to the travel to and from Berlin. She found an excellent air and hotel package for us; which saved us at least a thousand dollars! She just seemed to really enjoy helping people have the best trip they could have.

A Fairy Tale Vacation!

Reviewed By Lexie - South Charleston, West Virginia | Traveled to Vienna ~ Austria ~ Europe
Heidi was amazing! She was proactive with all information and details. We knew exactly what was going to happen and she had everything arranged that she promised. She was quick to answer every question and gave us personal attention to every detail. This was our first riverboat cruise, but thanks to Heidi's great service, it will not be our only one. We will contact her again for our next trip. We were with the Roanoke College group as guests but were able to choose which activities we did by ourselves or with the group. Getting to go to Budapest, which was not a part of our original itinerary, was a real treat. Even though water levels were low, the trip could have not been more enjoyable. A 10-day Fairy Tale! Thank you!!

Wonderful trip!

Reviewed By Peggy - Lansdowne, Virginia | Traveled to Vienna ~ Austria ~ Europe
Heidi was absolutely wonderful. We joined a river Christmas Market Alumni group tour up the Danube River from Vienna to Nuremburg a little late in the process. She bought us up to date on everything that was happening and due to happen makiing us feel comfortable with everything.. The Danube area was quite short of rain this year and there were many diversions from the original tour.. Heidi was on top of everything, keeping us up to date and making certain tht all of our needs were met. No one could have possibly done a better job . We had a perfectly wondrful time and we can't wait to book our next tour with her again. Hope it will be soon!
