ISRAEL and ITALY, 2023

"Our trip planning began in Aug 2019 for a 15 day trip to Italy in April of 2020. In Sept of 2022 when we decided to rekindle the trip Mary Pat was ready . We liked her ideas but then decided let's make this a more adventurous trip. We hit her with how about adding Israel to the itinerary. Mary Pat had not been but found a great tour company that let us decide where in the country we wanted to go. We spent 15 days in Israel saw a huge part of the country including a day and night in Jordan at the Petra ruins. Our guide was awesome and the hotels all top shelf From Israel we went to Italy for 13 days. We used points for hotels and made our own reservations except for the cool studio apartment Mary Pat found in Vernazza a village in the Italian Riviera known as Cinque Terra. She set up days tours in Florence, Rome and Montepulciano. All were done by guides that spoke good English and were genuinely nice people. I would not hesitate to have her plan our next adventure."

"Mary Pat is excellent travel expert. She is responsive as a planner and also in critical moments. She found us exactly what we requested and then some. I would highly recommend all of venues, hotels, restaurants, excursions that she helped us plan. She is clearly knowledgeable, and I wouldn't use anyone else!"

"We are so glad we found Mary Pat to help us plan what was to be a wonderful trip to Scotland. She helped us think through various tour options and add-ons to fit our personal ideas, needs, and preferences. She saved us a lot of time by using her expertise to find alternatives that met our needs. She made many contacts with service providers herself to make sure all our questions were answered before we made any commitments. Most unfortunately, COVID 19 came along and we were forced to cancel our trip. But Mary Pat continued to proved great service as we navigated the aftermath of having to shut this trip down. She made sure we made decisions and met deadlines to get maximum refunds, including a full cash refund of airfare. Throughout this whole experience, Mary Pat has been prompt and thorough in communicating with us. We really appreciate everything she did for us and certainly plan on contacting her next time we plan a trip.'

"Mary Pat is a very detail-oriented person. She is very knowledgeable and helped us to avoid some very critical mistakes that we would have made if not for her intervention. She asked all of the questions that needed to be asked in order to understand what kind of trip we wanted her to plan. Her hotel recommendations were nothing short of amazing. She planned what was truly the trip of a lifetime!"
