Tailor-made travel planning by Heather Christopher
Safe and happy in Heather's hands. Heather is perfect for us. We give her either generalities or specifics and she takes it from there. We have traveled with her help for years and it has expanded our horizons and experiences because if she hadn't helped us plan and assured perfect execution we would not have adopted ocean and river cruising or destination vacations as a new way of life. Her attention to detail and developed insight into our preferences makes enjoying the vacations so easy; there are truly no worries. In an age when many people think that travel agency support is a thing of the past because of PC offerings, they overlook what a professional agent can provide. Not the least are a second set of eyes and a detail chaser. Heather brings us all of that and good ideas for our next adventures. She is the one we call in crises that require immediate travel and she is the one we think of when we are enjoying our trips.

She listened and gave us exactly what we asked for! This is the 3rd trip that we have used Heather for. Every single time -- she has been able to listen, ask questions and then deliver on what we wanted. She always provided plenty of options within our target price range and we have never felt pressure to choose something that we didn't want. Her approachable demeanor is the single reason we come back. In the world of Customer Service -- Heather is Top Notch and would recommend her to anyone that was planning a vacation. Her process is simple, her style is amazing and I will use her again to book my next adventure.

Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful!!
Heather was a dream to work with! My husband and I were apprehensive about going through a travel agent to book our honeymoon, but were quickly swept up with how much easier the planning became. Heather went through the list of places we had looked into online and asked about our preferences in terms of location, activities we wanted to do and if we wanted an all-inclusive resort. Within a few email exchanges we were able to narrow down our search to three locations all of which Heather had visited and vouched for. After making our selection and asking about airline preferences and travel dates, she booked our trip and took our down payment. Being able to split up the payments definitely made our dream honeymoon more affordable then if we had gone online and booked it ourselves. Heather made her self available to answer questions and sent us email reminders all the way up to the day we left. Once we were back she was excited to hear how everything went. Heather definitely went above and beyond our expectations! We have since recommended her to friends and will book through her in the future!

Best vacations ever. Heather has been our travel agent for 11 years for a reason - she's exceptional! We are completely spoiled by the service she gives. We basically provide dates, indicate what we want to do and Heather takes care of the rest. If we are undecided about a cruise, vacation or other trip, she helps us sort it out because of her apparently unlimited knowledge of the travel industry, vacation spots, cruise lines, etc. She has never steered us wrong on a recommendation. She is also a joy to deal with - always upbeat, positive and fun! We wouldn't want to deal with anyone else.

Best trip we've ever taken! Heather was amazing. She was easy to work with and planned the most amazing trip to Hawaii! It was for our 5 year anniversary. The first night she had champagne delivered to our room and the trip ran so smooth. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone!

Our honeymoon was absolutely wonderful! Thank for you everything! We had no questions along the way since you planned everything and had it all so very organized. The welcome gifts were so incredibly sweet and thoughtful of you. You totally went above and beyond! We ate everything that was in the basket (waipouli resort) and on the plate (Fairmont Orchid) AND the delicious cookies that we received after we got home. You did way too much for us! We are so very thankful and would use you again in a heartbeat for our next trip.

We thought everything was on point. The transfers from the trains were very convenient. All of your recommendations were so helpful, and most importantly, you designed the ideal itinerary for us. We enjoyed walking and eating and the unscheduled freedom to do what we wanted when it suited us and the weather.
I’ve already recommended you to three friends. And hopefully it’s not 12 years before our next trip. Ireland, Scotland, and English countryside/coast are calling my heart.

Thank you for arranging our trip to California. there really were many moving parts, but you coordinated them so well that everything went very smoothly. I may have been able to put it together but not with the efficiency that you did.

Thank you so much Heather. We had a GREAT time and wouldn't have had the time to plan this on our own.
Every activity you picked was spot on. The cooking class, trip to Tomar, car rental, airfare, and transportation all went off without a hitch!

Whenever we talk about our trip to friends and family and they ask how we planned it, we tell them they have to reach out to you! I believe some have even started following you on Instagram! Everything was seamless and easy, which ultimately made our trip more relaxing and enjoyable. Matt and I are thinking about another vacation this fall so we may be in touch again soon! Thank you again for all of your hard work! Matt and I had the best time exploring Europe! It wouldn't have been nearly as smooth without your assistance and we are truly grateful for that. We hope to work with you again soon! 🙂

Thank you so much for helping us plan our Hawaii vacation! Everything went perfectly and the vacation was absolutely amazing!

She's there for you. Of all of the professionals I deal with in life, there is no one I would recommend more highly than Heather. In working with her she makes it seem as if she's there to have your back, and when I had a travel problem I discovered that she genuinely does. She went above and beyond to talk me through my options, calm me down, and help me fix the situation. Even though I'm one of dozens of clients, I always have the feeling that she cares about my enjoyment of my trip.

Oh, my goodness, what a WONDERFUL trip! I can't tell you how many times we commented how happy we were to have had your planning.

This was a trip we will remember for the rest of our lives and was one I didn't want to get wrong. There's no way we could have planned that trip ourselves. From beach recommendations to restaurants to lodging, everything was spot on. Thank you for all of your hard work on the trip.

Overall, it was wonderful to not have to plan all the little details, I am very grateful for your work in organizing our trip, and especially the details in helping to extend it when we just weren't ready to leave yet! And this trip was our first time using a travel agent, so it was a great learning experience for us on how do we communicate with YOU better about our travel style and interests. We are excited to think about what our next trip might entail! We know we must get back to Hawaii at some point, and are now curious about the other islands too! Thank you again for your help and execution on a wonderful honeymoon trip 🙂

Amazing Attention to Detail. Heather has an incredible personal AND professional approach to customizing your travel experience. It is a like a friend who knows you best, but is also timely, reliable, and thorough. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone seeking a straightforward, efficient, and comprehensive planner for their trip of a lifetime or long weekend get away.
Location: Virginia/Idaho / Travel Date: October 2015
The process was enjoyable and stress-free, but we were able to spend two weeks traveling abroad without a single worry. You covered every detail that needed to be covered and thought through everything, leaving us to simply relax and be on "vacation", which was what we wanted for our Honeymoon!
We had an amazing time! I almost e-mailed you while we were there to tell you how much fun we were having & what a great job you did planning it! Thanks again for all your help! It was an amazing vacation that we'll remember forever!
Location: Indiana / Travel Date: June 2016
We wouldn't have even known where to begin planning this trip, and you made sure everything was clear and taken care of for us, and we couldn't be more appreciative!
