We began to take cruises about a year ago, and now arranging our third. Geri's skill, energy, professionalism and availability -- sometimes in the middle of the night from far away -- are unmatched. Not only has she helped us select appropriate cruises, but also has been invaluable with arranging air travel, pre- and post-cruise vacations, and shore tours.

In another lifetime I developed an enrichment program with the Berkeley Unified School District to bring outside speakers and performers into classrooms as requested by teachers. I was lucky that many foreign consulates were in the San Francisco Bay area, where I’ve lived my entire life. My alma mater, UC Berkeley, also has an international house where foreign students often reside. Along with the students, I was learning about foreign places and became determined to start visiting them with my own children.
My responsibility is to listen to what my clients want and to try to satisfy their needs. I learned a long time ago one learns more by listening than talking. When talking, I love sharing my own travel to give clients an idea of the incredible experiences I’ve had. I love to cruise both with friends and family and have been on Crystal, Seabourn, Princess, Holland America, Oceania, Royal Caribbean, Royal Viking, Sitmar and more. I also love land tours and train travel in Europe. It’s so much better than flying between points.
I’ve had so many incredible trips, but the first time I was in China is particularly memorable. Our group was part of the first travel agents to be welcomed into China. We had amazing experiences and were treated as VIPs. I have been back there twice more. I also loved going with my family to Kenya and Tanzania. Observing everyone watch all the animals is a great joy. All of us were blown away with safari life. I have been to Kenya three times, Tanzania twice and South Africa once and look forward to going again and helping you plan your next adventure, whether an escorted tour, family vacation or luxury cruise.
