Amtrak & Alaska Cruise

WHAT THE CLIENT ASKED FOR:

One member of the two couples didn’t like to fly but they wanted to go on an Alaska cruise. What solution might I have?

 

WHAT I BOOKED FOR THEM:

I found them a great solution:  Amtrak sleeper car journey from Texas to Los Angeles, then all the way up the West Coast to Seattle. Balcony cabins on a 7-night cruise so they could enjoy the passage views from their cabins anytime they wished. Private whale watching tour, time with dog-sledding puppies, and nature tours.  Tours and transfers post-cruise back on Amtrak sleeper car with overnight in Chicago for a day of site-seeing, then across the mid-west home to Texas. They traveled with custom-created spiral-bound travel guides including all the sights on all trains, their cruise itinerary, excursions/tours and travel documents.

THEIR TESTIMONIAL:

"Fantastic tour.  We have had a fabulous time.  We’ve had no rain and clear visibility the entire trip.  Thanks for arranging it!  (They’ve also referred several more couples who have done similar trips – Thank you!)"

Canadian Rail Trip

WHAT THE CLIENT ASKED FOR:

They wanted to go on a Canadian rail trip that included Lake Louise to commemorate their late mother’s 100th birthday

 

WHAT I BOOKED FOR THEM:

Grand Circle Passage with Golf-leaf service with Rocky Mountaineer.  Organized pre- and post-stay in Vancouver and all transfers, activities and tours before and after the rail trip.  I also surprised them with a birthday cake honoring their mother during their dinner at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

THEIR TESTIMONIAL:

"We had such a great time on our vacation – we could not have planned or enjoyed this amazing vacation without Kat’s planning expertise and connections.   We’re so grateful Kat reminded us to purchase the insurance option.  When our sister got injured and needed to cancel, Kat was incredible at re-arranging everything and helped guide us through starting the insurance process.  The birthday cake was so wonderful and thoughtful; thank you for remembering our mother!"

European River Cruise

WHAT THE CLIENT ASKED FOR:

They came with a specific cruise in mind, but wanted help with all the details. Touring the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam was a must-do.

WHAT I BOOKED FOR THEM:

I found a special offer via my supplier that included 2-for-1 fare for a Rhine Getaway, PLUS 2-for-1 business class airfare from the USA.  I coordinated both pre-cruise in Amsterdam and post-cruise stays in Lucerne with tours (including Anne Frank!), plus all transfers.

THEIR TESTIMONIAL:

"Thank you, Kat, for a wonderful trip!  The Anne Frank House was amazing and our Lucerne guides were so knowledgeable.  Looking forward to our next trip!"

Universal & Walt Disney World

WHAT THE CLIENT ASKED FOR:

Stay at both theme parks, first time at both. Teen-aged girls, so definitely needed two bedrooms and bathrooms.

WHAT I BOOKED FOR THEM:

Booked round trip air, all transfers, 5 nights at Universal in Parlor Suite with 3 park tickets and Express Unlimited passes, 6 nights at Disney in Deluxe resort with park hopper tickets plus dining.  I made all their advanced dining reservations, Disney Fast Passes, and did detailed daily itineraries for all theme parks to help them maximize their time.  Her teens were gifted wands and tiaras for extra magic!

THEIR TESTIMONIAL:

"Each year you seem to find something better than the year before which seems impossible because every trip has been amazing!!  I appreciate all of your work!!"
