Maui - "If you're lucky enough to be on Maui,...

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!

Mike, It was a pleasure working with your group and a disappointment when we had to shut it down due to Covid-19. However, when the time is right, the adventure still awaits and it will be a go! Thank you for your kind words. Gail

Great trip down the Rhine and beyond
Gail was comfortable and easy to work with. I appreciated her advice on making flight arrangements through the cruise company. She had recently been to Amsterdam and shared some insight into making the most of our short time there prior to the start of our Viking cruise.

Gail Hummel responded:
Jill, being able to share and send you and your husband to Amsterdam on then on down the river was my pleasure. You were very easy to work with and knowledgeable about how you wanted your travels to happen. Thank you so much for your business and let me know how I can help in the future!

Very satisfied!
Gail is easy to work with, and takes all the hassle out of planning a trip. She is great at taking care of details that I would not have thought of. When it came to submitting and obtaining insurance payments for travel delays, Gail was there to help submit the claims and urge cooperation from the claims adjusters. Overall, our special anniversary trip to Hawaii was amazing - the beauty of the islands was phenomenal and accommodations of the hotel beautiful.

Hi John! I'm so glad you got your trip in before the world stopped traveling due to covid-19. Things will open back up and I look forward to working with you and your family when they do. Gail
