My favorite travel memory

My most memorable travel memory comes from a tour that Bob Rogers Travel organized for my own students while I was a public-school teacher. Our band was performing in Wittenberg, Germany, in a beautiful historic theatre that was constructed in the 1920s but was in desperate need of restoration. Noticing a fundraising campaign the theatre was holding, our student officers decided to take up a collection from the musicians in the band during dinner. Just before we performed the last piece, we called the theatre’s owner and the mayor up on stage where our students presented them with the money they had collected (500 Euro). I will never forget the reaction of the audience. There was an audible gasp, followed by boisterous applause, and both women on stage welled up with tears of joy and appreciation.

As we shared our music with the final European audience of the tour – an audience that was yearning for the arts to return in a more prominent way to their small corner of the world – we were reminded how music connects us all.

My hobbies and pastimes

I love to explore new cities and experience their culture by attending concerts, visiting art galleries, and tasing local cuisine. I also really enjoy attending sports events; so anytime I can pair travel with sports, I’m very happy. I love the atmosphere of a college football rivalry game, and I have an ongoing goal to visit all 30 MLB stadiums with family members (I’m up to 24!).

My favorite destination

In the United States, I love visiting New York City. The arts scene (Broadway, jazz clubs, art museums, etc.) is hard to beat. Internationally, I most enjoy visiting Germany. I developed very close friends in Germany through tours organized by Bob Rogers Travel.

 

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.

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. Even when something has slipped through the cracks, changed, or something unexpected comes up, BRT is flexible enough to make the changes needed to make everything right. We have always been so well taken care of and the personal attention is what makes your company special.

You make the process so easy - step-by-step of what needs to be done, guidance along the way, available (and quick) to respond to questions and making me feel like me and my students are your priority.

The quality of service that you provided us with was second to none. The organization and communication were exceptional and we always felt we were in “the loop” on things both before and during the trip.

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.

From the scheduling, to planning, to overseeing, to leading, to customer service, everyone involved was courteous, prompt, and hospitable. Everyone did their jobs well and turned the trip experience into something better than we had anticipated.

Very Organized - even when problems develop. We've gone on enough trips with Bob Rogers to know how BRT operates - always first class, always prepared.

The whole BRT team was extremely attentive, accommodating and reliable. Every detail was attended to and my stress level the entire trip was at an all-time low.
