Catherine Parkin

Independent Travel Advisor



Open QuoteCatherine is a consummate professional and really great at what she does. Her enthusiasm for travel and finding unique and memorable experiences was infectious. She added value that I didn’t even know I needed when beginning to think about our family’s “Around the World” adventure. Initially, I thought I *simply* needed someone to help tie the pieces together – which she absolutely did very well – but what I quickly realized was that we had a true partner and someone who deeply cared about our experience and making it beyond special. From the amenities we received in connection with Brownell, to her suggestions for what our 4.5 year old son would love to do, Catherine truly delivered and went above and beyond the call of duty, especially when we found ourselves abroad in the midst of Turkish political turmoil. Last, but not least, Catherine is a true pleasure to work with and I always look forward to speaking to her or seeing her name in my email inbox. Absolutely fabulous! End Quote– Jane L.

Open QuoteCatherine was most amazing in helping us plan our trip to Disney World. She definitely put in tons of heart and hard work for us to have a great time. She was able to work out several details for us- including the best days for park visits, shortest lines for rides and many special meals for my daughter to meet the Disneycharacters. Catherine contacted us several times before and during the trip to make sure all was set for us. She even sent my daughter a personalized gift to get her excited for the trip. All in all, Catherine was a huge asset to our vacation, and I can’t wait to plan future trips with her! End Quote– Tiffany C.

Catherine is beyond professional with first class service, from a seamlessly planned trip, to personally checking in with us on every detail and calling ahead to each stop to ensure we had the best room/view, etc. I highly recommend her for small and large trips! End Quote– Andrea S.

Catherine was so incredibly thoughtful when planning our trip. She took care to get to know exactly what we were looking for in a get away and offered us several options to fit our budget. Catherine was available via the app when we had tickets for tennis and there was an unexpected storm. We didn’t have to worry about a single detail and were able to enjoy every minute in Paris. We will certainly have her booking our next trip! End Quote– Jeffrey H.

Catherine booked us a wonderful 3 night stay in Florida. Everything was perfectly organized and upon arrival she had arranged to have champagne, cookies and a photo of myself and my 3 sisters in one of our condos. All details were covered. Great trip! End Quote– Amy M.
