We enjoyed a very memorable (and long anticipated) trip with our 'tween son to Italy: Positano, Naples (Pompeii and Herculaneum), Rome, the Cinque Terre, and Florence. Our travel agency helped make every day memorable, with boat trips and hikes when we were on the coast and the best art/architecture historians and archeologists when we were in Rome, Florence, and Naples. A real strength of this company is the contacts with excellent local guides/experts and drivers, which made our trip stress free and permitted us to use our time very efficiently.

We booked our Alaska cruise with Terra last June - We had done our research well and knew what we wanted. They recommended that we also add on a Denali land tour option which worked out beautifully as we got away from the ship for a few days and got to experience something different. Everything was taken care of in a professional manner and we were happy with the experience!

I have been a world traveler since the age of 11; had a successful career in Public Health Nursing; planned many trips for my family and then indulged in a joyous second career as a Certified Travel Counselor because I knew, with my experience, I could do an excellent job with budget to luxury travel. I'm retired now and first found Teri when I unsuccessfully looked for a trip on which my 16 year old granddaughter and I could work with Pandas in China. Teri found us the perfect trip, made all the arrangements and the trip went flawlessly, at a good price. We spent four days volunteering at the Wolong Institute working with the Pandas and also visited the highlights of China. Next, I wanted to take my first trip to Thailand and Cambodia. Again, Teri designed the ideal trip for a friend and myself. The itinerary, the activities and the hotels were a perfect fit for us, at the right price. We visited Angkor Wat, the Hill Tribes in northern Thailand, Chang Mai, the beaches in Phuket and even took a four day boat trip to the Similan Islands! Now Teri is helping me plan a trip to New Zealand and I have complete confidence that she will do an equally stellar job with this! From the beginning Teri, seemingly effortlessly, learned my travel style, price points and dreams and made them come true! I live in Washington State and she in California so we haven't even met but we really know, admire and respect each other and look forward to meeting in person. Sincerely, Judith Trieber

We are so grateful to have found Teri Goldstein to make all our arrangements on a recent trip To Bhutan, with stops in Delhi before and after. Every detail was attended to, and she was always very prompt in responding to all questions during the planning stages. Once there we could hardly believe our good fortune for the fantastic guides she arranged. As busloads of tourists would show up, twenty or so to one guide, we were treated to such personal service--2 of us with an excellent guide and delightful driver. By Day Two we were all like "friends on a road trip". Their knowledge and enthusiasm added such depth to our experience. What a blessing to have found Teri, whose thorough planning comes from her own years of travel experience. I can't wait to call on her to plan our next adventure and will do so with great confidence.

My grand-daughter and I had an wonderful adventure to India -- thanks to Teri. She set up an amazing itinerary, made all travel arrangements, and gave us good advice on how to plan and enjoy our trip. Our guides were well educated and knowledgeable natives of the areas we visited. They helped us learn the cultural and religious elements of the things we saw. I recommend her highly.

Locale Traveler was an absolute god send in planning my husbands birthday trip! Katie made everything so seamless and was so wonderful to work with. She had every single detail (and then some) under control. All I had to do was go enjoy the trip. On top of all of that, we ended up receiving an upgrade at our beautiful hotel because of Katie's connection! It was the most wonderful trip, and I can't wait to use her to plan future vacations!! Using Katie @ Locale Traveler will be the best decision you've ever made!!

Locale traveler helped us plan an epic 2 week honeymoon vacation to Tanzania. Katie handled all the details, booking our accommodations, transportation and tour guides. She was amazingly professional, responsive to our emails, and created a truly unique experience within our budget. We highly recommend locale traveler and Katie!!

I recently used your website to find a travel agent to help me plan an initerary to Australia and New Zealand. I am usually very capable of creating our itinerary/transportation/accomodations but found I was overwhelmed by the vastness and unknown of both Australia and New Zealand. Much to my dismay I decided I needed professional advice. Somehow, I found your website and decided to take a chance and call for advice. I was referred to Deborah Roberts, an Australia/New Zealand expert and talked quite a long time with her. Deborah had a vast knowledge of information and a great personality and I decided to see what she would come up with. I explained what my husband and I liked to do, gave her the length of time we had available to travel, and also told her of my hotel philosophy. You guys really understood and created an amazing itinerary for us that we barely modified. She understood the amount of time that each place needed and helped us plan from Queensland, Australia to Dunedin, New Zealand at the furthermost points of our itinerary. We decided to be adventurous and rented us a Maui campervan. We went tubing in Waitomo Caves, did a tour of Kangaroo Island, trekked the Milford Sound, and stayed at the Lodge at Larnach Castle on the Otago Peninsula. Deborah arranged all of that and more. I literally showed up with my voucher book and presented proof of prepayment for activities, transportation, and accomodations and everything was accepted without question. It was incredibly freeing to have her make all of the arrangements as I was working extremely long hours before we left for the trip. I will certainly recommend Travel Wizard to any of my friends who are traveling to Australasia and the South Pacific. She is definitely an expert and my husband and I really could not have done this trip without her help. Sincerely, --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ximena takes all the stress of travel planning right off my plate! I love it. She has done everything for me from book airline flights, train trips, and various styles of accommodations. She has also created fun travel itineraries so that all I have to do is wake up and go! Whatever I asked of Ximena she provided, from self guided walking tours to dinner reservations. She knows my style and makes sure to include some local history and flavor in my travel plans. I love to travel! I don't have lots of time to research and plan. It makes the whole experience so much easier and relaxing when someone does the planning for you. I don't want to travel with groups, so this kind of service works perfectly for me. I will always use Ximena's services to plan my trips. She is friendly, courteous, and delivers on time. Ximena has a fun vibe that I enjoy and that shows in her itineraries. Give her your destination, your budget and let Ximena do the rest! Happy travels!

Because of our activities in Real Estate with clients from out of town sometimes we need a helpful hand to take care of them. We take customer service very seriously at AMSI and our clients needs are paramount. Helga takes those expectations beyond the extra mile by providing knowledgeable tours into restaurants, musseums, parks and San Francisco point of interest. Our clients told us how detailed oriented she really is and that is why I recommend Helga and give to her 5 stars.

Our experts tailor individual experiences for each client that are brought to life with our local knowledge, industry expertise and eco-friendly mindset and vehicles. We know that each of our clients has different tastes, expectations, desires and goals for their visit to Northern California. And because our drivers are locals with a true passion for the area and a deep knowledge of wine and all there is to do between Carmel and Napa, T3 is the only choice when it comes to choosing a tour company when visiting the wine country, San Francisco or any point around or in-between.

About

I stand out because I stick to what I know and love...my area of Umbria, Italy. I listen to my clients desires and create what they want. My creative spirit makes it so nothing is cookie cutter. I always work with integrity and commitment to serve my clients making them feel excited and empowered with their travel plans, whatever they select. I can work with a tight budget or deluxe. And we will have fun in the process. After all, it is the journey, not the destination...although in this case the destination will be awesome!

About

I am a professional driver and tour guide. With over 20 years of experience as a tour guide to the local area, Justin Perkins (the owner) is a native to the Napa Valley. He has more individual experience and knowledge than any other tour guides in Wine Country that we know of. In his youth, he began exploring the area in depth hiking and bicycling throughout the region. He soon began sharing the area with his friends and family. When he began work as a professional tour guide, he noted how other guides simply did not know the area as intimately as he did, including the owner of that company. However, this was also when he began learning about wine and visiting a larger variety of wineries than he had in the previous years. I am a professional tour guide with a class B commercial license, CPR and medical card. I have a school bus certificate, which means I passed an extensive background investigation. Plus, you will not find a more knowledgeable person of the area. This includes tours, hiking, views, history, kayaking, wineries, dining, and more. Unlike all the other tour guides I know, I grew up here and honestly know the in and outs of the area. Justin
