My favorite travel memory
My favorite travel memory is when Don Shupe, director of bands at Libertyville High School, asked me to guest conduct a number at his performance at Epcot Center.
My hobbies and pastimes
I have a passion for flying my airplane and enjoy being in the wild blue yonder every chance I get.
I want people to know that
I enjoy life to its fullest and always strive to be my best. I am extremely PROUD of the legacy I have passed on to both my children, Tami and Todd Rogers. I am also very thankful for each one of our staff that is committed to continuing the ideals of Bob Rogers Travel. These outstanding people are now the heart and soul of our amazing company.
The personal touches that BRT provides. Your company gets to know the people they work with. I have never felt like a "number" with BRT.
Class Trip, 2018 DC tour
Columbia Central Junior High School
I appreciated the flexibility Bob Rogers showed us with the billing and various payments we had to make. We thought we were adding more and ended up not but you were great about giving us extra time to work out what we needed to on our end.

BRT is always on top of all details.

We have always been so well taken care of and the personal attention is what makes your company special.

Amos Alonzo Stagg High School
BRT hands down has been the absolute best travel company I have worked with in my 18 years in education. My interactions with BRT have always been so much more than just traveling from one destination to another...the focus has always been on people and providing them with experiences of a lifetime.
