New Zealand review

"I just got back last week from Japan and NZ trip. The NZ portion was fanstastic, thanks to you. All the hotel and tour bookings were spot on, and i was able to complete all of what I wanted to do without any problem. I definitely will refer you to my friends and you've been great. I was able to attend two cricket games, visit Glow worm caves, Waiotopu Thermal wonderland, Lake Rotorua, Tamaki Maori tour, Coramandel peninsula trip, lake Taopo, Hobbiton and had a small sight seeing in Auckland as well. Thank you so much for making my trip and life easy at NZ." 3/15

A special trip to France and Switzerland
Karen was responsive and efficient in getting all we needed for our trip. From private drivers to train tickets to great hotels, she handled everything. She listened to our requests and made it happen, as well as offered suggestions, based on her own experience, for us to consider. We had a wonderful time thanks to all of her pre-planning.

Anniversary Trip to New Zealand
Karen was and is a very pleasant person to work with. At our request she made all of the necessary arrangements for a worry free first time traveler abroad to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Even after a flight cancellation during our travels outbound she responded to our situation quickly and got us back on schedule. Karen has the appropriate Kiwi certifications that gave us the confidence to book our travel experience to New Zealand with her.

African Safari
Just returned from a two week trip/safari to Africa- using our Travel Agent Karen Boike Once again we were extremely pleased with all her expertise in planning the perfect care-free vacation. This trip took a lot of coordinating as we stayed in 4 different places and took over 10 different flights to three different countries. Accommodations and planned excursions were excellent and she provided tons of information regarding money, tipping, clothing, cameras, shots needed etc. We felt very prepared. Her Best recommendation was that we do two different safari experiences and this proved to be so worthwhile. Karen really knows her stuff and we benefit from her knowledge every trip we take.

A Great Adventure
She was a valued partner in all aspects of travel planning for our 28 day trip to New Zealand and Tahiti. She presents suggestions and options with insights gained from her personal experience and from reports from her prior customers. She is prompt and thorough in her research on suggestions we made to her based on input from friends of ours who had been there previously. She tailors physical activities (treks, kayaking, biking, glacier climbs) to requested exertion levels. She suggested a few upgrades in accommodations that proved to be well worth the added cost as she was able to obtain room rates below those I was able to find by going direct. I have done most of our travel planning without the assistance of an agent. I found the assistance Karen was able to provide as clearly value-added.
