"I started working with Lisa to plan my cruise, June 2019. This was not only my first cruise it was also my first time working with a travel agent. Lisa was very helpful every step of the way. She scheduled a phone call with me to go over the details of the trip and patiently answered many, many questions. A few weeks before the cruise Lisa mailed everyone in our group a package containing little goodies as well as tickets, receipts, and insurance information. I took my 13 year daughter with me and Lisa always made sure she was included in the planning, advice, and details of the trip. I was so impressed with Lisa and Fitzgerald Travel that I have asked her to help plan my 50th. birthday somewhere tropical!"
"I had the best experience with Lisa. My best friend and I went on a 8 day Royal Caribbean Cruise. Lisa not only handled ALL travel arrangements (Flights, transportation to and from air port, etc) but also booked excursions for us in each port that were custom to what we wanted to see and do within our budget! All documentation, tickets and boarding passes along with the cutest travel kit were sent in the mail prior to departure making sure we had everything we needed. Information on the boat and all of the dining and on board activities was included as well. I highly recommended Lisa and her travel expertise!"
"Lisa was amazing! She took on every stressful part of the planning so I could just enjoy our vacation. I never could or would have put it all together without her. If it weren't for Lisa, I would probably still be researching and planning. She was amazing as well as a delight to work with!!"
"Working with Lisa Collins was an absolute pleasure. After hearing what we were looking for and our expectations, Lisa was very thorough in her research for our special vacation. Lisa was always, always available to talk about our ideas and questions. She made our vacation perfect and flawless. Lisa is definitely and outstanding travel advisor. I will definitely recommend Lisa to everyone I know."
"But I could not have been more pleased with Lisa and her work. She made things easy and organized. She thought of everything. She was a pleasure to work with and talk too. I will never book another vacation without Lisa."
