The best travel agent ever!
I have used Carla's expertise in planning vacations and general travel for approximately 20 years and that alone should be a strong endorsement. Carla is a unique professional in that she not only is an expert in travel arrangements, hotels, transportation, and geographic destinations, but is someone who personally cares about her clients. She is unruffled with a kind and caring quality ensuring that every trip experience is a wonderful memory- numerous trips to Europe, Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic and cruises.

The most informative trip of our lives!
We found her very easy to work with. She answered all our concerns without making us feel that our concerns were not important. We had a meeting before we left for our trip and were able to meet the others on our tour including our tour leader. We were given information about our accommodations, our free time and resources to read before we left.

Talk to Carla First
Carla has a unique way of matching people with the exact right trip for them. She instinctively knows what would appeal and what you would enjoy!
Carla knows the importance of being in a top rated hotel, in the center of a city with access to sights, restaurants and transportation.
I have been on many trips planned by Carla and will continue to do so in the future. She always has my best interests at heart and plans accordingly.
Thank You, Carla!!

Carla Koller, Our Travel Guru
Dear Sir or Madam,

Simply put, if there were a Hall of Fame for travel agents, Carla Koller would be a unanimous inductee. She has a unique ability to grasp the trips we envision and to transform our conceptions into reality. Her knowledge of transportation, lodging, and fares is encyclopedic, but her imagination and insight -- born of her clear love of travel -- never fails to enrich our experiences in most creative and exciting ways. Carla not only excels in follow-through (enacting our preferred choices), but in follow-up (keeping us fully informed as things fall into place). In the past year alone, she has assisted our travels to Scotland, England, France, and Albania. All were immense successes. Ireland is now in train and we know it will be, too. She is a pleasure to work with. So let's be perfectly clear: we no longer consider going anywhere without the aid and advice of the incomparable Carla Koller.

Sincerely,
Maryruth Coleman and John Withers
