Vacations to Caribbean/Mexico, Hawaii, Europe

I have been in the travel business since 1998, when we purchased our first agency in Northern Kentucky. I've been fortunate to have been able to visit destinations and stay at resorts I'd never thought possible. I've had the opportunity to travel extensively: Dubai, China, Iceland, Great Britain and Ireland, Alaska, Mediterranean, Hawaii, Caribbean, Costa Rica and Mexico. I have many favorite destinations, just depends on what I'm looking for. Please additional specialties below.

Star Clipper Cruise Expert

The Star Flyer was...

Dubai Expert

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, had been one of my bucket list destinations for a while. I think that I'm at an age when you want to do more than stay at a beach (you can do that in Dubai too).  Although there is certainly a need for that sometimes too. When the opportunity...

Loved Royalton Punta Cana

I just wanted to send you a note saying how much we LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Royalton Bavaro!!! Everything -- the direct flight, the newer hotel, the people, the beach, the waterpark, the awesome Diamond Club, the amazing food, & the unreal entertainment. We got to see Michael Jackson show & The Lion King -- just outstanding!!! We didn't think it could get any better than Jamaica, but we were wrong... this place had it ALL!!! Thank you for taking my call to assure us that PC is safe to travel & take our family. You eased our minds & we had a fantastic time!!! We like visiting new places, but we really cannot wait to go back, so please let us know if you have any great deals for Royalton Bavaro in 2020

Everyone should use a travel agent
Beth has always been very responsive to any inquires I have had for vacations. She runs through various options and includes some suggestions I hadn't thought of including getting us on chartered flights, something you don't get booking yourself.

We Get Prompt and Personal Attention from Beth
Beth has simplified our travel decision making and consistently identified vacation options that we would have missed through our own internet searches. We like working with Beth because she delivers personal insight that provides more confidence than online reviews from popular travel sights. Beth has planned memorable vacations for us to: Montego Bay, Punta Cana, Playa del Carmen, The Bahamas, and Negril. Jamaica.
