Thank you Cathy!!!

Reviewed By Carly - New York, NY | Traveled to Indonesia ~ East and Southeast Asia
We are so grateful to have had Cathy help us plan our honeymoon! We spent two weeks traveling to 4 different locations across Indonesia. Southeast Asia was completely new territory for us and thanks to Cathy, we were relaxed the entire time knowing our next step was perfectly planned for us. Never underestimate the power of an amazing travel agent like Cathy! From the very start, she was always a couple steps ahead to ensure our trip was perfect. Forever grateful for her :)

treats you like family

Reviewed By Ry & Bri - Atlanta, Ga | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
My girlfriend and I reached out to Ms. Brooks-Oliver trying to plan a last minute vacation, her assistance was much needed. We were able to get comfortable flight and hotel accommodations that suited our standards for a really great price . As a diligent agent, she followed up with us to make sure our stay was as intended. I expressed to her  that we were expecting and to our surprise we were greeted with a congratulatory gift and balloons. Ms. Brooks-Oliver goes above and beyond expectations to ensure your get-away is wonderful. Without request, she provided suggestions for day to day sightseeing/excursions. I highly recommend booking your next vacation with this agency and Ms. Brooks-Oliver as your agent; she'll treat you like family and make sure you trip is memorable. Thank you again!

Life Saver

Reviewed By AJ - Irvine | Traveled to Orange County ~ California ~ USA
Cathy is a true LIFE SAVER. We were stuck in Colorado this past weekend (all flights canceled), and she got us home on the ONLY flight leaving Montrose when the other passengers were stranded for 2 days. When the airline canceled our original flight, she had already started working to have us re-routed before we even got to the airport. There were 10 of us traveling together, and I'm pretty sure we got the last 10 seats on the plane. My buddy who did NOT use her finally got home 2 days later...and after an 8 hr drive to Denver to catch another plane.

Saved 10 of us from 2 more days stuck out of town!

Reviewed By CWGE - Newport Beach, CA | Traveled to Orange County ~ California ~ USA
I have been working with Cathy Brooks-Oliver for years now and without question, the most knowledgable, efficient, responsive, reliable travel representative I have ever worked with! Most recently, we were on our way to the airport when we received a text from the airline stating that our flight was cancelled. I called Cathy and she immediately worked on options for 10 of us in our party (there was one other person in our party who did not work with Cathy and his fate was different unfortunately). By the time we arrived to the airport, with chaotic lines and frustrated passengers, all 10 of us were confirmed on the next flight out (which happened to be the only flight out the rest of the day). Our 1 friend who didn't work with Cathy, didn't leave Montross for 2 more days because he couldn't get on a flight!! Cathy saved us all!! I have other stories as well! She's the best of the best!!

BEST TRAVEL PROFESSIONAL ALL TIME

Reviewed By Chas - Newport Beach, CA | Traveled to St. Barthelemy ~ Caribbean
I have worked with numerous travel professionals over the years and Cathy is UNMATCHED! I actually first worked with her at another company (she stepped in to help a less experienced agent for an issue I was having). After my initial experience, I requested to have her as my personal concierge. She left that company and fortunately I found her again!! Cathy is accessible, knowledgable, amicable, and responsible!! Her experience is also fantastic in helping me decide on travel destinations and itineraries. She is truly the BEST! I don't want to say too many good things though cause I don't want her to get too busy for me!!!
