My favorite travel memory

I will never forget my first trip to Europe during my junior year of high school. I traveled with my European history classmates, long before the advent of cell phones, and can still vividly recall Heidelberg Castle, my first glimpses of the Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square, and how lush the Irish countryside was. We only toured for 10 days, but managed to visit 4 countries, several towns, and experience Les Misérables in the London’s West End.

My hobbies and pastimes

I enjoy playing and watching sports. As a lifelong Chicagoan, I have found myself playing golf more and more often, as rooting for our local sports teams has not proven very fruitful. I also enjoy travelling with our family, whether on an itinerary-packed sightseeing trip to NYC, a holiday ski trip to Park City, or a beach vacation in Turks and Caicos.

My favorite destination

My favorite travel destination is currently Southern California, specifically the beachside towns of Orange County, due in no small part to the fact our daughter attends the University of California, Irvine. Magnificent sunsets, warm days and cool nights, and beach strolls will always resonate, even after our daughter graduates (if we can get her to leave California). I have found my favorite travel destination has changed over the years (and suspect it might again), as we plan to go to Italy next summer.


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.
