“In the just over 2 years I have known Ingrid, she has planned 2 past vacations and 2 upcoming vacations. I will never use anyone else, or the internet, to help plan any more vacations. Ingrid takes the time to learn about her clients, to become a good friend, and in that way she can truly understand the clients’ preferences, needs, wishes and dreams. She combines that knowledge with her unsurpassed expertise within the travel industry to fulfill every traveler’s perception of the ideal travel experience. All the details are scrutinized and perfected. I have never had to worry about anything on a trip, except if I need to purchase extra luggage for shopping. And Ingrid even has ideas about that little concern! (Hint: Just add money and stir!)

Ingrid has become a very close friend. She has made me feel comfortable traveling as a single woman. You cannot find a better travel consultant, woman or friend in Ingrid. She will make all of your travel dreams come true!”
