Open QuoteThe trip was absolutely perfect…. Drivers and guides were all early and professional and the hotels were amazing! Probably our favorite part was the Dolomites, the hotel experience, the area, the hiking, and the views were all beyond belief. End Quote– Bruce B.

Open QuoteThe trip was absolutely perfect…drivers and guides were all early and professional and the hotels were amazing! Probably our favorite part was the Dolomites — the hotel experience, the area, the hiking, and the views were all beyond belief. In fact, dinners at the hotel were some of the
best we had the entire trip and were only 20 Euros/person for a five-course meal. End Quote– Bruce B.

Open QuoteThank you for making everything so easy for us. You’ve saved me countless hours and not to mention, money. It has been a pleasure working with you…and I’m hooked for life. End Quote– Terry S.

Open QuoteThe entire trip went without flaw. Even the three flights back went smoothly, which on a Friday afternoon seems somewhat impossible. Venice was lovely – our tour guide, Mattus, was very good. Remember his name and use him again! Rome was perfect – the weather was good, the hotel was very accommodating, Sondro, the guide was excellent, and I loved the city. The Silversea was perfect – very relaxing, a nice combination of touring and doing nothing. They did everything perfectly. Thank you for all your work and making it as relaxing as it was.End Quote – Betsy S.

Open QuoteBeth Flowers and her team are amazing. We booked a four-day Disney Cruise out of Miami and the entire planning process was seamless, easy, and enjoyable. Beth took care of every detail for us and also provided useful tips and suggestions. I highly recommend booking your next trip with them. Brownell Travel is now my favorite travel agency by far!! Thank YOU!!End Quote – Alexandra W.

Open QuoteWe had to plan a trip to Italy at the last minute for our 10 year anniversary. Our original “guided” tour was cancelled. I found Brownell through some research and was put in touch with Beth and Ashley. They did an AMAZING job planning our Bespoke tour. We traveled for two weeks to Rome, Tuscany (Chianti), Florence and finally finished in Venice. The trip ended up with my husband saying it “was the best vacation he has ever had”. Every detail was attended to and although it was my first time traveling to Italy, I felt as though I had been there many times before. Thank you for the best 10 year anniversary trip a couple could make.End Quote – Roger S.

Open QuoteBeth, our trip was FABULOUS. Everything was as good as we expected or better. Thank you for the work you did to make it great!End Quote – Bill D.

Open QuoteSending a much overdue thank you for an amazing experience on our recent Disney Cruise! Every detail was covered, we did not have to think about one thing. I have to say, I was only looking forward to it for the boys, but now Will and I are both converts and have already discussed another cruise with different itinerary next year. The space, entertainment, and service were outstanding – and you know that I have very high expectations! We appreciate you taking such great care of us!!End Quote – Kerry D.

Open QuoteWe came on this trip primarily for the church service on Christmas Eve at the Cologne Cathedral and it was simply spectacular! In the past, we’ve attended two services (Easter and Pentecost) as guests of the U.S. Ambassador with seats near the Pope, but this was far superior. Thanks for all your help. This trip has exceeded our wildest expectations!!End Quote – Dee R.

Open QuoteOur trip was absolutely fantastic. Everything went so smoothly – everywhere we went, we were whisked away to the next place we were supposed to be! I must say, Brownell’s relationships were invaluable to making our trip better. Thank you for all your help in organizing everything!End Quote – Mike S.

Open QuoteThis trip to St. Barth was definitely one of the best vacations our family has ever taken! The villa was the perfect size for us and had direct access to a protected lagoon where could see sea turtles by the dozen whenever we looked off our porch (we also went snorkeling there and had close up encounters with several turtles – so cool!!). The dining experiences were amazing on-island. Our favorites were Sand Bar at Eden Roc, Le Sereno Hotel Restaurant, Bonito and Jojo Burger. Our favorite beach was Colombier – the catamaran we took there was fabulous and the snorkeling was amazing! We love to explore so I think we covered every inch of the island. Thank you so much for all your help, perfect suggestions, and arrangements – it could hardly have gone any better!End Quote – Brooke

Open QuoteHi ladies – just a quick note. We’ve been at Round Hill for just 25 hours now, but wanted to send a quick note of thanks. You nailed it, and us! We are in love. We were upgraded to a cottage suite and WOW! Thank you. Thank you!End Quote – Courtney H.

Open QuoteHey Beth, I just wanted y’all to know that we had a great trip and everything worked out really well!  Thanks so much for all you guys did. The hotel was great, the transfer service was great, we were able to get the disability pass – which helped a lot; we saw everything and are completely exhausted. 😉 End Quote– Courtney

Open QuoteWhat a fabulous vacation!!!  Words can’t express our heartfelt appreciation for the work you both put in to bring three couples together for a fantastic time.  Most everything went off like clockwork and we left nobody stranded anywhere!  As for the villa; please express our thanks to Marta Thorpe in Italy.  She was there when she needed to be to help all go smoothly. The house and grounds were just what we expected…only more so!  Quintessential Tuscany.  And Alieta was a wonderful woman and fantastic cook.  What more could we ask for?End Quote – Diane and Dave Biddle, Tuscany 2013

Open QuoteWe just arrived in Berlin and the Regent Hotel is FANTASTIC!! Thank you do much for all your help! It has been a super trip and your planning made a big difference. We look forward to many more. Thanks again. End Quote – Dee and Penny

Open QuoteWe were upgraded to Club Level at Ritz New Orleans and Will Smith is here!!!! You are officially the coolest travel agent ever!!!End Quote – Jeff and Kim

Open QuoteThe trip was awesome. Betts liked Cinque Terre the best and Florence the least. Below are our thoughts:

  • You did a great job. wonderful trip
  • Juliano was awesome. he was our driver and was fabulous. I think he is going to come visit. You should use him for every trip.
  • The restaurants were great that were recommended. Oliva Nera – best food; La Giostra – best atmosphere.
  • Venice was very crowded and expensive.
  • The gelato in Florence is the best.
  • I could live in Tuscany forever
  • Olive oil and wine tasting/tours were great
  • Banfi was really nice.
  • Rapallo was best hotel other than Banfi
  • The SCAVI tour is a must for people if they have time.
  • You did a great job!End Quote – Lauten and Betts J

Beth Testimonial PhotoOpen QuoteLynn and I had a long, but pleasant flight to Tahiti.  Had enough time in Los Angeles to eat dinner with Robert and Lindsey.  He has found time in early October to take a one week break.  Not enough time for Europe, but maybe somewhere in the U.S.   He may be in contact with you.

The Four Seasons is great!  A very welcoming welcome by the staff.  We want to thank you for the $100 credit and especially for the birthday cake and champagne!  I have included a few token pictures of our room… it’s perfect.  I’m taking mental notes and will follow with a report of our impressions. Thanks again for arranging our vacation!End Quote – Steve L

Beth – There is no way to thank you for your help in putting together the best trip ever for us!  I cannot begin to tell you how special it was – all of it! The hotel was awesome, the dinner at Narcoosee’s while watching the fireworks was one of the most special things we’ve ever done as a family. The look on Lauren’s face during the princess lunch was priceless!. Roasting marshmallows in the cold on New Year’s Eve while we watched a movie on the big screen outside was better than any end of the year party I’ve ever been to – we were treated as if our family and Lauren were one of the only families there! I want you to know that Ryan and I must have said a million times while we were there how much we appreciated your help putting the whole thing together. The trip was worth every last dime – we couldn’t have done it without you. It truly was magical. – Jennifer W.

Open QuoteWOW!  What an anniversary – Paris was the perfect destination and we had yet another awesome Brownell experience!!  The Eiffel Tower by day and night sealed the deal!  Thank you for making our anniversary trip one to remember – we look forward to our next travel opportunity!!End Quote  – Debbie C.

Open QuoteOur trip to Little Dix could not have gone any better.  The resort was absolutely unbelievable, and the people there were even better – I don’t think I’ve ever met a collective group of people that were so nice.  There was so much to do – we snorkeled, paddle boarded, fished, swam with dolphins, went to the baths, went to the spa, and even more I can’t think of off the top of my head.  Thank you for all of your hard work getting everything together and creating this incredible trip for us.  Whenever we make a trip like that again, you will absolutely be getting a call from me so we can plan something just as great!End Quote –Matthew B.

Open QuoteJennifer and Sean are incredibly thrilled with their Hawaii experience! Thanks to you the Four Seasons Maui upgraded them to a suite. Better yet, the Four Seasons Hualalai upgraded them several room categories to a very large ocean front suite with their own plunge pool!  This is the same suite one of the Bon Jovi members stayed in and also identical to the one Ozzie Osborne stayed in – so, needless to say, they are excited. Thanks a gazillion for all the things you do to make people happy!End Quote – S. Lee

Open QuoteI want to take a moment to tell you how much Lynn and I appreciate what you do. You make our lives, and our children’s lives, better and we thank you again for your suggestions, ideas, and the work you doEnd Quote – Steve L.

Open QuoteBeth and Connie, Kate and I arrived back from our honeymoon safe, sound, and rested last Friday! I just wanted to tell you both thank you for all your help in taking out all the guess work in booking our trip and making it an enjoyable experience! I look forward to staying in touch for my next trip! Thanks again.End Quote – Gabe Lee

Open QuoteI absolutely can’t THANK YOU enough for all your help in arranging what was truly “a trip of a lifetime” for the Royal Wedding. Seriously, the memories that my mom and I made while in London over the past several days are special moments that we will cherish forever. Words can’t express how much fun it was to be a part of the magic. Thank YOU so much for making it all possible.

Claridge’s was perfect and our upgraded room was amazing! The car service, the flights–everything was perfect. The best part was attending Suzy’s brunch over looking the Mall on Friday. It was fabulous!

And… were the flowers in our room from you? The were beautiful and made our whole experience so nice! The smell took over the room. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You went above and beyond!End Quote      –Bethany

Open QuoteBeth, I can’t thank you enough for your help with my honeymoon. Zoetry was fantastic… I have been raving about it and you to all my friends. The room, food, serve staff, pool, and ambience were simply amazing. Anne and I had an amazing time there and were continually amazed each day at some aspect of the resort. We were a bit skeptical of the food at all-inclusive resorts, but this one erased any of those notions very quickly. It was soo good. Thank you again so much. Your insight and professionalism made this week amazing!End Quote      –Sam

Open QuoteWe had an absolutely fantastic trip and can’t thank you enough for all your help! I must review all the great bonuses we got from working with you:

1. We got our room upgraded to the Prime room (a more than $600 value!). Plus, being on the “inside” of the horseshoe (which is what Prime means) is a HUGE deal.
2. Complimentary daily breakfast. Beth, this was HUGE … It was SO very nice to have each morning. We loved this. Thank you.
3. All the excursion advice was RIGHT ON.
4. Just the mere comfort of having an expert to bounce ideas off of and handle details, trip insurance, etc.

Again, thank you so much. We had an amazing time, and it couldn’t have been as good without you.End Quote – Martin C.

Open QuoteI just wanted to let you know that Cabo was absolutely fantastic! If I imagined my perfect vacation, this would be it! Weather, food, activities, hotel, service, everything … A+. Thanks again for all of your work planning this trip.We had a fabulous time!End Quote     – Laura J.

Open QuoteI just wanted to say than you so much for the fantastic trip that you booked for us. We had an absolutely wonderful time! It was everything we wanted and more! Thanks again for all of your hard work! Thank you!End QuoteD. Cano

Open QuoteIt was perfect! We would go back to Royal Hideway in a second and suggest any of our friends do the same via Beth.End QuoteT. Groves

Open QuoteAlthough I probably could have spent hours researching our trip myself, hiring Beth to do the legwork was by the far the best decision that we made. Beth was an excellent resource for our trip due to her extensive travels and ability to research the best deal for our family through Brownell Travel. I saved a lot of time out of my already busy day and was less stressed about all of the decisions to make for five people traveling together. We are already looking forward to our next trip!End Quote  -H. Scott

Open QuoteBeth–I’m still pinching myself. We loved the Viceroy–location, room, lobby/bar and pool. Loved it! And the US Grant was just like being in a really grown-up, stylish master bedroom that I’ll never have. Most comfortable hotel bed and yummiest linens I’ve experienced in recent memory. We enjoyed the room service credits immensely! Thank you for helping us plan such a fantastic trip.End Quote -K. Darden

Open QuoteI wanted to drop you a quick line just to thank you for everything that you did to make the wedding such a beautiful experience. I know you worked so diligently to put the itineraries together, and I can tell because everything went so smoothly and graciously right as scheduled. I know that Armand and Meg are pleased to see that this Italian wedding was such a perfect gift, and this is in part due to all the hard work of you and your team to ensure that everything was properly accounted for. Thanks again.End Quote – M. A. Barnes

Open QuoteWhere do I even begin to thank you for all the amazing help you provided to me and my family! I wanted to let you know that the party was a HUGE, HUGE success – thanks in LARGE part to the arrival of all of my family and my parent’s St. Louis friends. Honestly- how you all figured out how to get all of those people – all of those age groups half way across the country – I will never know! I just can’t thank you enough for making a wonderful memory for not only my parents but for the entire family. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!End Quote – Bethany

Open QuoteThe hotel is wonderful. The concierge/hotel bought our dessert as a thank you. Being your client has its perks. We are on the top floor with an ocean view. We are getting manicures tomorrow morning. Life is good.End Quote  – Janet T.

Open QuoteWe just arrived in Berlin and the Regent Hotel is FANTASTIC!! Thank you do much for all your help! It has been a super trip and your planning made a big difference. We look forward to many more. Thanks again.End Quote – Dee and Penny
