Hawaii or European River Cruise Travel Agent

Waikiki Beach with my family was so much fun!
Waikiki Beach with my family was so much fun!

I offer a deep dive into destinations- history, culture, and more... I will create a Hawaiian Island itinerary that makes you savor every memory and fills you with a longing to return. With destination expertise in all of the Hawaiian Islands, the US Virgin Islands, and Panama, I strive to bring you the best experience in each spot if island or tropical is your dream.


I also specialize in custom European trips and river cruising. If you're looking for a unique Netherlands experience, I have river cruised and spent time in Amsterdam gazing at the Dutch Masters, pondering Van Gogh paintings, eating too many Dutch Pannekoekens, and all varieties of cheese.


Luxury is truly my thing, but it has to be coupled with a unique and immersive experience. I do not do budget travel, but promise value that will make you happy with every penny you spend.


Using finely honed research skill, I collaborate with you to get to the essence of what you want to experience. enjoy making travel dreams and wishes come true! I bring solid experience, tips that may not be obvious, and advice for planning family and group trips! Having a keen eye on history, I've also been an amateur genealogist since I was at my grandma's knee.


Tell me where you want to go... I'll make a way to get you there!

Luxury, history, great food, unique experiences

When I travel I want to do the heavy hitter touristy things right off, but then... I am off to what makes a destination truly unique. Food, art, cultural intricacies that bind lives and the roots of history together, this is what pulls me. I will show up for what everyone else wants to see, but I am always looking for the story behind the story.

My Travel Stories

Tulip Time Cruise in the Netherlands with Avalon

I'm a tulip lover, a cheese lover, an architecture lover, a history lover, a windmill lover, a total history geek. I love not only the slender beauty of a tulip, but also how they contributed to the emerging market economy that shaped the face of Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. A Tulip...Read more.

10 Year Anniversary Trip to Ireland
Working with Gail was BEYOND incredible! Her knowledge and expertise was extremely helpful, plus when we had a few glitches with our tour, she went above and beyond to get us satisfaction for our troubles. Burkhalter needs to give this woman a raise!!!! The term "dog with a bone" comes to mind. When we were having troubles with some of the companies we were staying with Gail went to bat and didn't back down! I would whole-heartedly recommend Gail to anyone needing assistance with their travel plans! We won't hesitate to use her for our next adventure!

Amazing Family Vacation
Gail planned two wonderful trips for our family. She listened to what our interests were, offered suggestions and helped us pick the perfect venues for a weekend get away and an amazing family vacation. She’s knowledgeable about all sorts of trips, travel destinations and travel tips and we really enjoyed working with her.
