Open QuoteWorking with Deborah made our family trip for the 10 easy. Deborah gave us hotel options and great flight information. We received wonderful money saving tips for shopping as well as dining and activity suggestions. We had a fabulous time and loved our hotel. We will definitely contact Deborah for our next adventure.End Quote – Ann L. 

Open QuoteDeborah planned my wife and mines honeymoon. She recommended multiple places that all fit our criteria to a tee. When we picked our destination, we knew exactly what our package included and precisely what our itinerary was. As my first time leaving the US, I felt completely comfortable traveling in a foreign place. I would highly recommend Deborah to anyone looking travel and will absolutely be using her for future travel plans.End Quote – Sam W.  

Open QuoteDeborah did a great job working within our budget to narrow down options and help us choose the perfect trip. The team at Brownell was very professional, quick to respond, and made the trip planning process easy. We will definitely work with Deborah and Brownell again in the future!End Quote – Alan B.

Open QuoteYou know when you see you those photos on Buzzfeed or Pinterest that make you want to drop everything and move to the other side of the world? Yeah I’ve been tempted by those many times…The problem: I’ve never known where to start. Where are those little holes in the wall, or can’t miss spots in Bali, or Cape Town, or Dublin? We partnered with Deborah from Brownell Travel to plan our dream Honeymoon to New Zealand. We had a rather specific budget and figured plane tickets across the world, 13 nights of hotel stays, and 3 meals a day would surely put a dent in the possibility for adventure. I should have known Deborah could achieve the impossible! Every hotel, every meal, every experience was the BEST OF THE BEST. From wine tasting at Waiheke Island’s most prestigious wineries, escaping to a secluded ocean side farm cottage, bungy jumping out of a 500 ft high cable car – this was only the beginning of the most epic trip of a lifetime. Deborah, we are forever grateful!End Quote – Tyler C.

Open QuoteDeborah provided great insight into where to go in Greece and multiple options to choose from. The places we ended up staying were fantastic. The transfers and excursions that she coordinated were all first rate with no issues. Deborah was very responsive during the planning phase. We did have an issue with a delay with American Airlines which caused us to miss a connection and Deborah had already started our travel insurance claim for us by the time we returned.End Quote – Ken D. 

Open QuoteDeborah Barth did an incredible job guiding us through our first European travel adventure. We enjoyed every minute of our time in Mykonos, Santorini, and Athens. We were initially hesitant about going so far from home and to our first country outside the US or the Caribbean, but they made the process seamless. The recommended private transfers to and from airports to our hotels gave us an added sense of security and made getting around effortless. The hotels they recommended to us were incredible. We were upgraded on arrival at all three of our stays throughout the trip which made everything all the more memorable. We know we are always in good hands with this Brownell team and are looking forward to our next adventure!End Quote – Mary Ellen W.

Open QuoteDeborah put together wonderful accommodation for our family of 4 in Barcelona and Mallorca. We had a residence at a hotel which provided great apartment style space with all the hotel amenities. The tours were informative and provided an efficient tour of the city. The hotel in Mallorca was fabulous. Very luxurious after touring the city for a week. Another great trip put together by Deborah.End Quote – Susan R.

Open QuoteDeborah planned an Australian trip for us previously; when a late opportunity arose for a long vacation, and I called her only 18 days before departure of the Seabourn cruise to Alaska we were interested in, she was about to leave the country for a few days herself, later that day. Notwithstanding that, she got our cruise details handled quickly and accurately, answered every question, and with her very able cohort, Sam, we were 100% prepared for our trip. We think Deborah is simply the best — she anticipates questions, knows the industry, and makes planning part of the enjoyment of the vacation. We recommend her to anyone, without hesitation.End Quote – Mike M.

Open QuoteI initially contacted Deb about a different trip, but after talking to me about what I was looking for out of the vacation & my budget she asked if I’d be open to other suggestions. Boy am I glad I said yes!!! She recommended a unique place in Belize that I never would have come up with on my own. My husband & I agree hands down that this was the best vacation we have EVER taken. We are still talking about it and want to go back again. She handled everything for us and also gave us some great travel tips that made the flights there & back the most convenient they could possibly be. She’s the best!!!!End Quote – Tracy R.

We had the best time while honeymooning in Hawaii! Deborah was very professional, listened to our wants, went up and beyond answering our many questions, providing itineraries and schedules. Easy to get in touch with. I really appreciated all her recommendations and tips for lodging, dining, and activities. We’ve never used a travel agent before and she exceeded all expectations. It was a stress-free honeymoon after months of wedding planning- exactly what I wanted. Thank you Deborah!End Quote – Teresa M.

Open QuoteDeborah did an outstanding job of listening to our interests and preferences for the trip (and working with our budget) and she developed our itinerary accordingly. But she went beyond that to suggest several options she thought would be of interest to us (they were) and which we probably would not have known about otherwise. She seemed genuinely interested in us as people, not just as clients. She and her assistant were prompt in answering our questions during the planning process. And very importantly, they were easily available and quick to resolve a couple of issues that arose while we were overseas. We would be very pleased to work with her for future travelsEnd Quote – Ron C.

Deborah Barth is an absolute gem when it comes to travel. She is thorough in her knowledge of resources and knows her customers so well that she is able to design the perfect trip from start to finish. I depend on Deborah to provide me with a vacation free of anxiety. She delivers! I can’t wait for another opportunity to work with Deborah and Brownell.End Quote – Davonia B.

Open QuoteI had never used a travel agent before, but since this was an important trip to our family, I decided to go with Deborah Barth as she had been recommended to us by a trusted friend. I could not be more thankful that I did !!!! Our trip was halted mid-flight by a medical emergency with a family member. The air reservations had to changed suddenly for several in our group – and since I was in the hospital with our family member, I was unable to do anything. Deborah handled our complicated, emergent airfare needs quickly. And did I mention Deborah did most of this on the weekend? I really don’t know what i would have done without her. I would definitely recommend Deborah B, Sam, and Brownell Travel.End Quote – Liz

Open QuoteDeborah was fantastic to work with! They both listened and understood what we were looking for when we called them to book our vacation. The options they recommended were all great and we loved where we decided to go. Emails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Excellent customer service! I have recommended Deborah before and I will continue to do so!End Quote – Amy M.

Open QuoteDeb was fantastic in getting a perfect trip scheduled for my wife and I on short notice! She recommended a beautiful resort on the west coast that provided a spectacular 4 day getaway. Communication was excellent as always and the Virtuoso package made the trip just a little more special!End Quote – Stephen

Open QuoteDeborah was a great help in coordinating our trip to Hawaii…all of our accommodations were outstanding and it was wonderful not getting bogged down in the details of booking flights, rental cars etc. Deborah also booked several excursions for us which we thoroughly enjoyed. If I were planning another big trip with lots of moving parts and things to pin down I would definitely ask for Deborah’s assistance again.End Quote – Laura

My Wife and I enjoyed a trip of a lifetime to the Hawaii Islands and because of the help we received from Deborah Barth, it went Flawless ! The islands we visited were so incredible and breathtaking, and the weather was perfect each day (I don’t know how Deborah even ordered up the perfect weather). I do know that without hesitation, we will again travel with the help of Deborah in the future as well !End Quote – Philippe C.
