Adventure travel, Africa Safaris and Cruises

Of course my love to travel is the reason that I want to help others experience the world. My friends always called me when they wanted to travel to see where I would go and what to do there.  I have been to many many places, but there is still so much to see and do!  

I enjoy the all-inclusive vacations when I just want to unwind and relax and have no decisions to make.  But I also enjoy exploring and visiting the hidden gems that every country and location has to offer:

  • like the BLUE HOLE in Jamaica- private waterfalls, caves with rocks and ropes to jump off of into the cool sparkling clear waters.  
  • In Mexico- paddling in the CENOTES where the natural beauty is overwhelming.
  •  While in the French Polynesia- climbing a mountain on Raiatea to the breathtaking views of the incredible blues and greens of the ocean. Or walking on the ocean floor amongst stingrays and a hundreds of fish.
  • Portugal had us trying different cafes and beaches every day.
  • While in Morocco, I had the opportunity to experience the Spice Market and Rug factories and immerse myself fully in the culture. 

My bucket list is extensive- I keep ticking things off and then adding 2 more destinations.  The world is huge and just waiting for me!

she was my second brain !!!
Let's cut to the chase: Barb is amazing !!!! I 100% recommend her to anyone who is searching for a well thoughout trip, a responsible and trustworthy agent who is going to tell you how it is. She has the best intentions and your interest at heart. She puts passion and time into planning your trip. My boyfriend and I were searching for a cruise to go on in order to escape reality. (We are in our mid 20's) This was our first time using an agent as we usually book it ourselves, however After my experience with Barb I will never use anyone else. She did an outstanding job. We did an 8 day river cruise in the northern part of Portugal stopping in Porto, Bitetos Regua and more ! We started in a bus in Lisbon which is such a fun city with so much life and after Touring Lisbon we took that bus up to Porto. Porto is where we boarded our ship to start the river cruise. The 8 days consisted of stopping off daily in the towns of Portugal to experience the culture, have fancy delicious dinners and tour around. We did everything all planned by Barb !!! One day we had dinner in Bitetos, and the next we did tours of gardens and castles in Regua it was amazing ! We also had excursions to visit castles and the beautiful architecture featured in these buildings. We were surrounded by Portugals culture. We also had lots of down time on the boat and free time in towns to do as we please. My boyfriend and I mostly went to the beaches, talked to locals, ate at local restaurants, he played soccer with the kids in town while I focused on perfecting my tan. I could go on and on about our trip because it was just perfectly planned our by Barb. She thought of things that I did not know is possible, she knew where to go, what to do, how to do it and the cheapest way to do it. She was there with us every step of the way. Barb knows what she was doing and she does it well. She is also In charge of planning our trip to San Francisco next year!

Took care of absolutely everything for us!!!
Barb was absolutely incredible in every sense of the word. My friends and I, a group of girls in our mid-twenties, were busy with school and work and were looking for a fun all inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic that would meet our strict budget but also have the younger party atmosphere we were looking for. Upon recommendation from a friend I reached out to Barb and was not disappointed! I was a bit sceptical having never used an agent before but she literally took care of everything! She listened to our long list of what we were looking for in our vacation destination and came up with a bunch of suggestions based on her extensive experience and knowledge from her other clients. She suggested the Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana resort which literally had everything we wanted in it plus was well within our budget and I am happy to say it was the best trip we have ever been on. Her hard work and expertise relieved SO much stress from me who otherwise would have had to do all the research by myself and browsed through hundred of trip advisor reviews. I don't know why i hesitated in the first place, but I can guarantee that my girlfriends and I will all be using Barb to plan and book all our future vacations!!!!!! Thank you so much Barb!!!!!

i wanted an adventurous vacation, and boy did she deliver!!
I used her to book my all inclusive trip with my father to Cuba. It was the perfect place! The night life was beyond what I expected for myself but also had the perfect balance to have a relaxing and stress free time for my father. He absolutely loved the location Barb had picked. So I used her again to book me a more adventurous vacation as I was in need of a thrill! She not only found me a local place to stay that was centralized to all the activities she had recommended in the area, but also suggested that I try the taco cart a previous client had mentioned. She was well informed because that taco was one of the best I've ever had! Truly authentic! She booked me a day in an adventure park where i spent my day zip lining, driving an ATV through a forest and underground tunnels, and a refreshing swim in a river through a cenote. I not only recommend Barb as a fantastic travel agent, I will definitely be using her again to book all my future travels!! Amazing, amazing, amazing!! Up next.......machu picchu and the Galapagos!! Thanks Barb!!
