My favorite travel memory

My favorite travel memory would have to be traveling to Jamaica to teach music! I got to meet so many great people who I now call friends and colleagues. I feel so blessed to have been able to connect with so many students through choir and band! I will never forget sitting in the courtyard at Montego Bay High School with a few girls from their choir and having them teach us to sing OMI’s song “Cheerleader,” two years before it was famous in the United States!

My hobbies and pastimes

Outside of travel, I love to play trivia! My friends and I try to go out as often as we can to different restaurants to play during the week! I also love to perform in ensembles on clarinet or piano, read new books, play with my three dogs, and spend time with my two nieces!

My favorite book

That would have to be the Harry Potter series, I can’t pick just one! This series of books has been a part of my life since I was a little kid and I just love that no matter how old I am, or how many times I’ve read the books (too many times to name!) it is a brand new adventure each time I start them again!

 

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.

This was my 5th trip with Bob Rogers, and I appreciate the professionalism and also the willingness to work with me and my students to make each trip the very best it can be.

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.

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.

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.

David Dvorak

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.

Joe Carl
Band, ’17 Los Angeles Tour

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.
