"Rachael has planned a number of trips for my husband and I over the course of several years. In each instance, she listens carefully to our requests and desires for the trip, provides intelligent and well-reasoned suggestions for where to travel and when to travel, and then follows through with trips that are seamless, well-organized and exceptionally fun! In summary, I can think of no one more deserving for accolades in her field, as she is an outstanding travel planner, and one I look forward to working with for years to come." — Laura
