An Active Cruise in French Polynesia

One of my favorite trips was a cruise I took with my husband through Tahiti and French Polynesia with Paul Gauguin Cruises. We love everything about cruising.

What makes a travel Agent an extraordinary one?

"For one thing the exceptional Travel Agent is thoroughly knowledgeable and experienced travel advisor, who takes time to get to know the clients and carefully listen to their travel interest, wishes and budget, before carrying out the detailed planning necessary to meet the client's specific itinerary, accommodations, local guides, and other travel arrangements. Loretta Carson, our travel agent meets and exceeds all the attributes of an excellent Travel Agent. All our trips arranged by Loretta were flawless, whether it was a pleasant Chauffeur or a knowledgeable local Guide arriving to meet us on time, recommending hotels located in safe area with easy access to transportation and tourist venues, and air travel which best meets our needs. Finally, in a time when so many calls to service organizations such as travel agencies are answered by robot phones, any call we have placed to Loretta is answered by Loretta."

Gold Star personal services

Reviewed By Specialkls - New York, NY | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Loretta is, hands down, the best travel provider I have ever worked with and I have used agents for both business and personal travel. I say “provider” because her service is greater than just booking travel and accommodations. She takes the time to really understand what you want from your travel experience. My husband and I have never been disappointed with our trips or Loretta’s suggestions; whether it be our anniversary vacation, an adventure excursion or just a quick detox weekend. She is a pro and we won’t plan a trip without her! Her personal touch is definitely a value added commodity in our busy, nonstop lives. Loretta is the best!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

“ Our experiences with Loretta “

Reviewed By Mark - New York | Traveled to Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
Loretta is very hard working travel agent , who has either actually visited the vacation destination or finds a local expert who knows everything about the desired area. She is an advocate for her clients , tells it the way it is and never oversells a product. When using the services of Loretta, we know we are in good, capable hands of a seasoned professional.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
