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.

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!

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.

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!
