Leisure Travel Specialist

Today's travelers are seeking a more personalized travel experience. They're looking for an adventure that incorporates their own individual ideas and tastes. I enjoy taking all of those ideas and sculpting them into their dream vacation. However, dreams come in all shapes and sizes; big, small, foreign and domestic. The important task I strive to accomplish is to fulfil my client's dream.

We all have a quest in life to find that one important thing that holds our interest and keeps us driving forward each day. It took several attempts, but travel finally emerged as the elusive passion that keeps me thirsting for more. With 20 plus years of agency ownership, I've gained extensive knowledge of travel destinations and the ability to deliver the experience the client is seeking.

My travels include the Caribbean, Mexico, South America, Central America, Great Britain, Europe, Scandinavia, the Mediterranean and the United States. I've experienced exploring the streets of Pompeii, viewing the ancient library in Ephesus, imaging the roar of the crowd in the Coliseum, savoring a freshly baked pretzel in Wurzburg, watching the sunset from the pier in Key West and standing in amazement on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Each one of those experiences has made me want to share their wonder with my clients.

If your bucket list includes destinations such as Germany, Italy, France, Spain and other European countries, give me a call. European travel is one of my travel passions. Whether you're looking for an escorted tour or a customized travel adventure, I'm ready to assist you in creating fabulous memories while traveling through the breathtaking countries in Europe.

You can see Europe or you can experience Europe. I encourage my client's to step outside their comfort zone a little and do the latter. Talk to the people, listen to their stories, taste the local food and just have fun. You'll find the local people are eager to share and help you make those lasting memories.

Thank You Rob
My husband and I have been working with Rob for about 13 years and he has provided us with great customer service in every way possible. He has helped us with planning and booking about 13 cruises, all were great in every way with no unexpected surprises along the way. Our most recent cruise was on Anthem of the Seas in June and it was the best one we have been on.

We moved from the St. Louis area in 2005 and have tried travel professionals in our new locations but we quickly came back to Rob. We would highly recommend him to friends and family.

Care-Free Travel!
Rob has been our travel agent since 2008. He has always been responsive to our travel interests, suggesting tours or cruises that might fit into our schedule and budget. He does extensive research regarding a chosen travel package, and arranges it all, from transportation to the airport, flights, hotels, side excursions, tips, and transportation back home. He has been very patient when we ask and re-ask questions, which we unfortunately do a lot!

We recently needed to interrupt a trip due to a death in the family, and Rob initiated the process of getting a refund using our purchased travel insurance, in addition to arranging the necessary flights home.

We know that our trip will flow smoothly when Rob has arranged it. There are no surprises about cost, no confusion when arriving at our destination. He sends us copies and receipts of everything we need for our trip.

Indian Ocean Cruise
Have booked several trips with Rob. He answers all of my questions and gives good suggestions how to improve my vacation ideas since I tend to plan my own vacations. Always available. Very positive and friendly personality.

A wonderful experience
It was a pleasure to work with Rob. He helped us plan a wonderful trip and worked with us to find flights with easy connections. When an unexpected delay occurred on our return trip, he booked us on the next flight. Having the boarding passes sent to our phone made the connecting flight hassle free.

You Can Always Count on Rob
Our family has trusted Rob with our travel bookings for over fifteen years. It started when we needed to re-create a honeymoon that another agent had screwed up - and do it in a week. Rob did. Anniversary cruise to Antarctica? No problem. Spring break cruise with hotel and air for nineteen people? Can do!

Not only a skilled professional, but a nice guy as well. Highly recommended.
