Why using a professional travel agent for booking travel makes the most sense.
Not a week goes by that we don’t hear the horror stories of doing business with the large online travel giants. Every week it seems our Chicago Tribune Travel Troubleshooter section has another story about spending countless hours on the phone and months of frustration dealing with these companies. Your time is valuable; we can do the heavy lifting when there is a problem and in most cases get you on your way with a minimum of hassle. Using a travel professional gives you the peace of mind and the assurance your travel plans will be something you won’t have to worry about.

Monday morning I picked up the phone to call Delta Air Lines as a messy snow storm was reeking havoc in the Midwest. I was amazed to hear a recording tell me that Delta was busy, call back later and they immediately hung up on me.
Want to try something completely different in cruising? Try Riverboat Cruising.
Although it's been around for a number of years, riverboat cruising is a unique way to explore destinations that cannot accommodate large cruise ships. Most riverboats hold from 50-200 passengers with a few exceptions. Because of their size, they can navigate smaller rivers and bodies of water that a large cruise ship would never be able to get through.
