Three for Three
We just returned from the third international trip planned by Catherine Parkin and all three trips have been spot on. We are seasoned travelers so our expectations are high. Catherine has nailed every detail – flights, trains, transfers, hotels, tours and restaurants. I don’t often write reviews but, in this case, a positive review is well-deserved. On our recent trip to Grindelwald, Lucerne, Bellagio and Budapest, my husband and I both agreed that we would not have changed one thing about the trip. It was amazing.

Catherine is a very detail oriented travel advisor. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking to have a carefree travel experience. Everything was planned and the execution was flawless. She is very attentive to the needs of her customers and thoroughly vets the companies she uses, so you can rely on her recommendations in any locale. I will use Catherine for all of my future trips.

Every Detail Perfect
Catherine planned a fabulous trip for our group of ten. She managed input and communication flow with everyone & left no stone unturned in creating the best experience for us. From hotel selection and room options, tours, casual & dressy dinners, and recommendations for down time – everything was perfect. Catherine guided us to a perfect mix of planned activities & free time, with flexibility for budgets & relaxation time. She was heroic in chasing up feedback and made us laugh along the way! She’s responsive and professional. I couldn’t be happier with Catherine’s service.
I’m already planning another trip with her.

Outstanding Trip to France
I love booking travel with Catherine Parkin Travel! Catherine and Michelle are wonderful people with whom to work. I appreciate the thoroughness in their research. They helped create a beautiful French vacation that was perfectly tailored to what my friend and I wanted: a fun girl’s trip full of luxury, good food and wine, and French art and cultural experiences. Catherine organized visits at the different Champagne houses that we wanted to visit, which was so helpful. It was great to have restaurant reservations set up, a museum pass waiting, help with finding opera tickets, etc. Catherine is an incredible travel agent – I have definitely started to travel more since she makes trip planning so fun and easy. Can’t wait for my next trip. Thank you so much!

It was a pleasure working with Catherine! She was professional, prompt in responding and knowledgeable in the areas we were traveling. When we arrived in Europe, we were beyond impressed with the locations, tours and transfers. Catherine set us up with an amazing app that outlined our itinerary and had any necessary documents downloaded and available at our fingertips. The trip had many moving parts and from beginning to end it was fabulous! I would highly recommend Catherine Parkin for all your travel needs!

Catherine is extremely talented and clearly passionate about her work – she is very accommodating and creative when putting together an itinerary. She works tirelessly to find good deals and best value for the money. She is a great communicator and lets you know all the options, the steps needed to be taken in order to put plans into motion. I have been very happy with the travel plans she has put together for us.

The Absolute Best... Bar None!
Catherine 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!
