Hi Geraldine, I just recommended you and I want to say, “Thank you!!!!” again, for all that you did for Olivia, Juli and me! We will never forget our trip to France and I know that I could never have pulled it all together the way you did for us! You know how stressed I was when I first contacted you! So, if there is anything else I can do to help promote you, I would be happy to do so! Oh, I did receive a call from (the owner? of) The Travel Agent when we returned from France. He wanted to know how our trip went and I told him how wonderful you were to work with, our trip was perfect and you were very responsive to any questions I had. Not sure if he mentioned that to you! Take care and stay in touch!
We are all having a grand time. The city and the people are amazing! The Albe is perfect. I think I will be leaving my heart in the Latin Quarter. Thank you for the view of the Seine!
Very awesome all the questions were answered
She was accommodating to multiple changes in plans. Friendly and helpful. Even responded to questions we had while on her own vacation.
Working with Geraldine was great! Since this was my honeymoon, I thought it would be a good idea to use a travel agent to help with the logistics of the trip and help take some of the planning off our plate. She was able to get us flights were the airlines checked trough our luggage to our final destination (which is extremely helpful when traveling overseas and when you have connecting flights). Geraldine suggested and provided us with a number of good choices for places to stay that were close to sites that we could visit. She also suggested two tours that we went on which were very fun; a Swiss cultural tour and a Maltese cave tour. If/when I plan anymore extensive European trips, I will definitely be calling Geraldine! Thank you for making our honeymoon as stress free as possible Geraldine!
Having Geraldine plan my family trip was great. She was available and kept in touch though out the planning process. She responded to my emails in a timely manner and answered our questions. She also made good suggestions when we were hesitant about something. The trip ended up being a great experience. My family and I are grateful for Geraldine's assistance and we will definitely ask her to plan our next trip. Thanks Géraldine!
This is about our 6th trip with Geraldine. And this one was a dozy. 17 days in Europe, three hotels and a cruise. She did it all and everything was perfect. As I learned a long time ago 'Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance'. Geraldine really shined with travel arrangements. All the pickups at airports, hotels, etc were on time and great rides.
She gave great options, was thorough, and also patient!
Geraldine has been great in planning two big trips. The big one is to Europe this spring. 17 days in western Med. Found great hotels in Sorrento and Rome for our sightseeing their. Then linked us into Silversea cruise from Rome to Barcelona. She really helped on transportation. Getting between sites in Europe can be very tricky from here in US. But she really helped with a quick trip to Punta Cana for my 70th birthday. We nailed down a great ocean front room just 4 weeks before the trip. We have been working with Geraldine for 5 or 6 years and she now knows what we like so we are always satisfied.
Once again, Geraldine planned a great trip for me and a friend, this time to Hong Kong! She helped us select from several hotel options, assisting us in weighing pros and cons. Then with her facilitation, we were able to receive a discount at the Four Seasons Hotel, along with a spa credit and an amazing free breakfast buffet each day (fresh fruit, waffles, dim sum, cheese, smoked salmon, salad, cereals, superb coffee drinks, etc.) that would otherwise have cost at least 40 US dollars a person. We also received a free upgrade to a room on a higher floor with big windows and a tremendous view! She took the time to research transportation options for us from the airport, and helped us buy travel insurance policies. It was a comfort knowing she was there along the way, and I highly recommend her!
I just want to take a few minutes to thank Geraldine for the most wonderful trip we just completed. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and Geraldine planning was a huge part in making this happen. From our first meeting she was attentive to our interests even though at the time it was a "work in progress" as to what we really wanted to do. We kind of knew where we want to go but didn't really know much more than that. Geraldine patiently worked with us to define and plan our trip to Paris and London. Offering wonderful suggestions as to what to see and which excursions to take. The hotels in France that she suggest were impeccable, and made for a truly wonderful experience. Geraldine was always aware of our budget and always ready with a great alternative. Geraldine put together a trip that we could never have accomplished and for this we will have her plan our trip to Italy in near future.
Made a trip out west to the Tetons and Yellowstone. As you may know, reservations for the parks must be made well in advance. we made ours in Nov 15 for a Sept 16 visit. Unfortunately, we ran into a huge overbooking mistake in the Tetons. The hotel, The Jackson Lake Lodge, found us alternate accommodations in the park but it was not what we had prepaid for. Geraldine got involved and got us a substantial reduction in our rate. That's what you expect when you use a travel agent.
Geraldine did a great job for us as always. We love her level of service.
I have had Geraldine help me with travel arrangments in the past and she has always been an IMMENSE help. All I had to do is shoot her a mail with some guidance on what I wanted and she provided me with choices. She also reminded me when I had some outstanding actions to take regarding cruise reservations and such and helped me when I had problems. It is always a pleasure to work with her when I'm planning a complex vacation.
It was an excellent trip to estartit in Spain. The hôtel was a Good advice from Géraldine . Good bedroom. Nice swimming pool and all équipement for children. We spent very good holidays !! Thanks to Géraldine
I had the pleasure of working with Geraldine recently while planning a trip to France, and I highly recommend her, both for her timely and professional communication and bookings, and for her appropriately tailored selections of hotels and tours. I found her name online and took a chance, and I'm glad I did! She helped with two different hotels that perfectly met my requested needs. In Bordeaux, due to Virtuoso amenities, I received a free fabulous daily breakfast buffet and a spectacular suite upgrade that I would not have been eligible for if I had booked the room myself online. The hotel website had not even shown availability on my dates. Geraldine also booked a private two-day wine tour that included winery visits, tastings, and education, an experience of a lifetime for a wine lover. Additionally, she helped me select a travel insurance policy which gave me peace of mind. Give her a call or send her an email, she is friendly and professional, and works internationally.
I highly recommend Geraldine for your travel needs. Very attentive, easy to work with, and got us a good deal for the hotel we requested. We will definitely use her again.
Geraldine was like having a best friend available while on my two week trip to France. I'm not much of a traveler outside of the US and Eastern Canada, and prior to this trip I had only been to Paris once, and that was twenty two years ago! I'm not young either, so I was nervous about going ahead with my itinerary, which took me from Charles de Gaullie in Paris to the Dordogne area (based in Sarlat per NaPolule Art Foundation) to meet up with other for a week long artists' retreat. Upon my first destination, I was greeted with a welcoming email waiting on my desk from Geraldine who let me know she was on hand if I should need her. She has assured me before the trip that I'd be fine, and she was right! It was as though I had known Geraldine for a long time and I've never met her! This was the trip of a lifetime for me! Thank you, Geraldine!
Our stay at Occidental's Royal Hideaway at Riveira Maya was total relaxation. Room was perfect with a view of the blue carribean, just what we asked for but only a very few rooms have. Our rom was decorated in celebration of our 13th anniversary, unexpected. The grounds were lovely and miticuously maintained. The pools and beach was lovely. But it was the dining that was exceptional. Fantastic menus combined with perfect service. We never left the 'compound' in 8 days. No need to. And Geraldine made it happen.
Geraldine planned a great "stay-cation" for us to stay downtown Seattle at the Fairmont. She arranged for milk and cookies in the room for the kids and fresh fruit for us. We also got gift vouchers as part of the resort package. Geraldine has planned other trips for us and adds her own personal touch with personalized notes and chocolates. Thanks for going the extra mile!
Geraldine performed greater the we expected her evaluation of our needs and recommendations for our stay we're right on, and our stay exceeded our expectations, it he location met out needs and wants, and her suggestions allowed us to focus on fun and not the details We couldn't have asked for more"
I highly recommend Geraldine to anyone traveling especially 1st timers going abroad. She was on top of things throughtout the entire process frm researching different vacation packages to keeping us posted on any possible changes. She even did follow up after we returned. She shows a true interest and makes each client feel like they are her only clients. I like this about her. Thanks Geraldine!! We will definitely use you and your travel agency for future vacations!!
Geraldine helped us plan our first vacation in Paris and Nice, France. It was perfect! She pulled everything together for us, which was a huge relief to me. She was always quick to answer all of our questions and her knowledge of traveling in France made her suggestions invaluable when we were developing the itinerary. I really enjoyed working with Geraldine and I highly recommend Geraldine Hasting as your personal travel agent!
Thank you for setting up our tour with Chocolatine. The one day trip was great. Our driver/guide Sylvia was excellent and responsive to our desires. The vehicle was spacious and new. It was a nice addition to our cruise.
Also thank you for the dinner recommendations. We had a very nice dinner at LES DEUX CANAILLES. We were a little surprised at the distinctly Asian look of the place, but the cuisine was certainly French! The food was excellent as was the service.
Thank you et MERCI BEAUCOUP!
We had so much fun at Disneyland! Are you up for booking us again next year? We'll probably stay an extra night now that Titine is older and can handle it!! ;)
Thanks again for all your help this year!!
I have to tell you that Geraldine is Awesome. She did a great job helping plan our trip. She is a real asset to your travel agency and puts a nice personal touch on everything. I really enjoyed working with her and for her putting up with all my indecisiveness!!
The trip went off without a hitch and was fabulous. I know it was because of your hard work. Thank you for everything.
Just a note to say the hotel albe is terrific and we love it! Wonderful location, new, clean, etc. perfect even in 98 degree weather,,,,great AC.
The Internet Svc is poor, so I will keep this quick. But the hotel is so perfect for our stay. Thanks,
See you next week,
Jeff and T and CJ
Bonjour Geraldine !
We are back on Maui and over our jetlag. It was really tough the first couple of days. I wanted to thank you for the $100 onboard credit that we found when we got on the ship. That was very thoughtful !!
Bonjour mon amie, We are back !
I can't believe the changes to Marseille in just two years. What a beautiful city ! We had the most beautiful sail away from there. Seabourn served champagne and caviar, the weather was beautiful and the sun setting on the city was magnificent!
After leaving the Seabourn Pride . . . We had a great time in Nice. Some old friends and some new friends met up with us there and we had a fabulous last supper at restaurant Luc Salsedo - too much wine, but it was worth the headache.
I must tell you that I'm very pleased to have Geraldine Hasting planning our first trip to France for my granddaughter (a graduation gift from me), my daughter and myself. Geraldine is knowledgeable, helpful and always responds very quickly to any questions I've had. This has been a very good experience (using TTA) and I'm sure our trip will be remarkable!
I highly recommend The Travel Agent, Inc. and Geraldine to everyone I know!
"Geraldine is a wonderful travel agent, planner, organizer, all the things you want your travel agent to be. And she loves her work, especially working personally with her customers to make sure she understands what they want and need in their travel plans. You won't find any better travel planning help than Geraldine provides. She takes care of it all and is a pleasure to work with. I am happy to recommend her to anyone seeking travel planning help."
Got back yesterday.
Trip was fabulous. All travel arrangements went without a hitch.
Loved Inn at the Market. It was clear all three full days we were in Seattle so view room was worth every penny. You may want to advise others that if forecast is iffy, a better option is city view and then use deck if sun comes out for a clear day. We had wine and cheese each night on deck with view of both Rainer and Olympic mountains. But if you think it will be clear, get the view room.
Westin in Vancouver was also great. Very close to Stanley park yet walking distance to Canada Place. Super restaurants also very close.
Victoria hotel was also perfect. Victoria is small city so no need for cabs unless raining. Great view of harbor and balcony was used each day.
It was fun doing Amtrac and the ferries. Do recommend to any other travelers to these cities. Absolutely no reason to rent car unless you want to travel in countryside.
We will use you again.
Thanks so much
Bob and Karen
“Geraldine, was an excellent Travel Agent for us and considered our unique needs as she planned our itinerary. Every suggestion she made was excellent, as she considered our budget, time constraints, and personal likes and dislikes. I would definitely work with Geraldine again as she made our trip easy and stress free. She was a delight to work with.
