Hi Julie,

I wanted to thank you for the great trip you put together for us.  Every detail was taken care of which made the trip stress free.  We had the best time everywhere.  Paris was so much more interesting than I imagined.  The tour was excellent even though we couldn’t take the river cruise.  I would have loved spending more time there.  I feel the same way about Amsterdam. There was so much to see. The hop on hop off canal boat was great.   I wanted to let you know that the hotel selection was perfect.  Right in the middle of things.  Well I could go on and on.  So glad we chose you as our travel agent.  I’m sure we’ll be planning more trips with you.

Thanks so much

Pat & Paul Wind


“We have booked two trips with Julie and she is absolutely wonderful to deal with!  Smart, responsive, and creative. Has given us solid and reliable  information in planning our trip and our itinerary. Pays attention to detail and has given us useful advice before going, including what items not to forget and if it makes sense to upgrade on a cruise. As most travelers, I thought why involve a 3rd party when ‘we can do it all alone on the internet’.  But working with her has been worth it for the ‘turn key’ approach—she thinks of everything and acts. Let her do the time consuming booking work and call us when it is all done.  Plus using a travel agent gives you a much bigger ‘hammer’ when it comes to changes and/or complaints."

Dear Julie,

In a span of about 10+ years of working with you in our many exciting and wonderful trips, I could never think of a time that we did not have a fabulous and memorable vacation. Our 2011 35 day cruise to Australia, NZ and the Far East was amazing and probably the "piece de resistance" of all our trips.

I am sure that the success of any trip can be attributed to good planning, scheduling, knowledge and awareness of the many steps and details that go into any vacation. Perhaps a good travel agent can provide you with some of these sometimes but a GREAT travel agent can consistently deliver all these and more...and when you find one, you keep her. I was lucky to have met you..You are that person and more.....and definitely a KEEPER!!

You have the ability to make a client feel very special, secure in the knowledge that you'll do everything to make a trip memorable...one who truly works and cares for the client's complete satisfaction and even above expectations.

We need to plan another trip as soon as we finalize some of the mundane and domestic issues we are currently faced with.

Take care....regards,

Ophelia and Jim Millon

Dear Julie,

My wife and I are writing to let you know how very appreciative we are of your conscientious efforts and professionalism. Also, importantly, in today’s business world of multi-means of communication, people have become lax and have forgotten the proper etiquette and necessity of communicating with customers and clients. That is not the case with you. You have stayed on top of every trip and kept us updated and informed of every detail on a constant basis.

We began international travel in the early 1980’s and have traveled the world as well as the United States extensively. We have used many travel agents in search of the best, but none compare to you in a number of ways. Your patience and attention to detail make working with you a wonderful pleasure. We never feel rushed in talking with you. Some agents always seem to have another agenda than our trip and want to rush through details so that they can move on to the next customer. You always are relaxed and have as much time as we need. Thank you for these major things that others seem to have forgotten.

Thank you for your excellent help in making the proper arrangements ahead of time regarding BT’s dietary and medical needs. You have made travel so much better by handling so much of the responsibility for us.

We are thrilled to have finally met a travel agent/vacation specialist who serves the client in the manner we have always hoped to find but never did. If only we had found you many years ago! How great would that have been?

Although we have not met face to face, we consider you a dear friend. If you ever need a reference or want us to speak to a potential client on your behalf, it would be our pleasure.

We look forward to planning many more trips with you as our agent and depending on you to help us make the right decisions and arrangements.

Thank you for everything you have done, are doing and will do. Happy Trails.

Best regards,

AJ and BT

Dear Julie,

How lucky I am to have found you as a wonderful trip planner, and implementer of those plans! My daughters and their families have enjoyed each trip for which you took care of all those worrisome details, so that there weren’t any with which we had to deal!!! Sandy’s 40th birthday adventure, my 75th, and all the other delightful spots that you have arranged for us have been much more fun because you did all the research, had the contacts, and took care of all the necessary travel details in such a way that all we needed to do was enjoy! Sandy’s working on another English adventure for this summer, so we’ll be calling you again soon. Thanks not only for being available, but also for seeing to all the things that make a trip pleasant with everything taken care of ahead of time, so that it is genuinely a re-creational adventure.

Most sincerely,

Betty Ann
