This was our first cruise and we were blown away with the ease of every detail thanks to Becky! From the earliest planning stages, she put together sample tours and provided wonderful options & explanations. She found no-cost add-on's such as onboard credits, gratuity, transfers, and specialty dining. We had to rearrange return flights due to a hurricane; she immediately jumped on the phone and got it figured out ... all while we were standing in the ships computer room so we could print revised boarding passes! Excellent customer service and accessibility! She made our entire trip run smoothly from start to finish. She was so happy to see us so happy when we returned home from our dream vacation. All of us in our group cannot wait to plan our next trip with Tilson Travel. She's the best!
Becky is efficient, thorough and responsive. We have booked numerous trips with her company and are always delighted. She takes care of every detail. We are always confident of what we are booking and what to expect. She is a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her services!
This vacation was the first time that my boys and I took after the passing of my husband. Becky helped me every step and made this one of the best memories for my family. She provided information that helped our vacation run smoothly. Including an app on my phone which helped very much before and after our cruise. Thank you Becky, a job well done!
