Carol's Travel Service, a FROSCH Company
I've been a professional travel consultant for over four decades and am proud to hold the certifications of Master Cruise Consultant and Certified Travel Consultant. The most important thing I've learned in my career is that the world is our playground and at times seems like such a small place with so many similarities between faraway lands. At the same time, it holds tremendous diversity in culture, history and lifestyles. During my 40+ years of travel, I've developed and acquired remarkable skills, knowledge and expertise in planning Group Travel. This includes two niche areas: One of customized Group Travel and the other, Girls' Getaways.
I've traveled world-wide with special interest groups, corporations, alumni associations, reunions, friends & family explorations, incentive travel programs, Gals Gone Traveling (my women-only division), and other diverse and interesting groups. Recently I planned, managed and hosted a "Girls' Getaway" with a highly- personalized itinerary for a group of 20 ladies to Charleston, S.C., where we stayed in the city's most luxurious hotel, enjoyed organized private sightseeing in our own private historic Charleston motor coach, visited a plantation, enjoyed escorted shopping tours, spa treatments, a cooking class, and experienced a class on domestic entertainment. Another recent custom group program that I planned, managed and hosted began in Paris with select and iconic sightseeing, went through the upper Normandy region with village, farm and cidery visits and came through the Beaches of Normandy where we visited all the WWII historic spots. We continued to Mont St. Michele and dallied through wineries and chateaus in the Loire Valley.
I thoroughly enjoy working with both types of groups. As your advisor arranging Custom Group Tours, I know that handling groups requires unwavering attention to detail throughout the planning and reservation process. I must communicate with and complete the reservation process for each participant with accuracy and a high level of customer service. It's also important that as the group leader, you and I are comfortable working together and that you provide me as much information as possible about your group which assists me in crafting the best itinerary. I have been handling groups for many years and it shows. I deliver a fabulous itinerary, a personalized reservation process, and a seamless travel experience - whether for an International Group Tour or a fun Girls' Getaway!
