When it comes to planning fantastic travel experiences, Vicki knows exactly what directors, students and their parents are looking for – she’s been there, done that and bought a souvenir or two! As a mom of two daughters who performed in orchestra throughout their grade, middle and high school years, Vicki knows how important it is for student travel itineraries to be detailed, organized and, most of all, memorable for everyone involved. And with her extensive vacation and business travel experience, she’s the complete travel professional package.
My favorite travel memory
My favorite travel memory was when our family went to Cancun, toured Chichen Itza and climbed the great pyramid, which is now closed to the public. We also went swimming in the Blue Cenote, which is one of the most beautiful natural water wells in the world.
My hobbies and pastimes
I enjoy the outdoors all year round, especially during the summer when I can work in my flowerbeds and spend time with my family and my yellow lab, Lola.
My favorite travel destination
My favorite travel destination is Door County, Wisconsin because of the quaint shops and cottages on the water. It’s known as the Cape Cod of the Midwest.
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. 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.

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.
