Kathy Mueller's Clients

Leah

I love working with Kathy at Authentic Travel!! She has planned so many trips for my family (and several girls trips) and I am always thrilled with the choices we make. Kathy is always patient and thoughtful — and spends countless hours on the phone with me discussing different properties to find the perfect fit for whatever kind of trip I am looking to plan. From Amsterdam to the Caribbean—Kathy makes A+ recommendations and I fully appreciate her guidance on all things travel!!!!!

John & Mary

We have worked with Kathy for many years to assist us in several family adventures and to arrange cruises. She is thorough, knowledgeable, patient and extremely attentive to our family’s needs. She is also tireless and persistent in representing us with the cruise lines, tour groups and others involved in planning these excursions. We have recommended her to many of our friends and would do so again.

Edie & Rick

Whether we were sailing the BVI's, touring Napa, finding the perfect spots in Antigua, Anguilla, The Dominican Republic, Turks & Caicos or Cartagena, Kathy Mueller over delivers every time. With Kathy, we know that every single detail will be managed brilliantly. She has earned our complete trust. We will always work with Kathy and have recommended her to many others who feel the very same way.

Kerry & Mike

Kathy Mueller has been our travel agent for as long as I can remember. She has arranged both extensive trips, like a tour of Ireland, a multi destination Italy trip, European cruises, and smaller domestic destinations such as Key West. Her professionalism and attention to detail have made each of these trips very special. Her research into each and every detail of our trips has made for exceptional vacations. I trust her recommendations and have been so pleased with so many of her suggestions.

Cathy & John

We have worked with Kathy Mueller since she got into the travel business and could not be more pleased with her professionalism, understanding, and caring of needs of her clients. She does her homework to make sure that whatever trip is planned that it is done with the interest of the individuals in mind taking into consideration all aspects of travel expectations To say one goes beyond the norm is a perfect statement of who Kathy Mueller is . We could not be happier in having Kathy as our travel agent/ guide.

Claudia

Kathy Mueller, with Authentic Travel has been my travel agent for over 5 years. She has planned for my family and I many European trips, trips to the Caribbean, Mexico, family reunions as well as journies to Australia and New Zealand. As a true lover of travel I don't know what I would do without her. No request or task is too much. Kathy has found us cooking classes, private boat rentals, white water rafting trips and my favorite of all a day of skydiving in New Zealand. She knows the best of the best and if she doesn't know the answer she consults with one of the many experts she has on hand. No detail is left out as she plans these amazing vacations. Kathy is diligent, hardworking and an absolute pleasure to work with. Having Kathy and Authentic Travel in my camp has allowed my family and I a lifetime of fabulous memories. I cannot recommend Kathy and her team enough.

John & Tess

Tess and I had the best vacation in Florida.  The Ritz Carlton Naples was a ten.  Jet Blue was a ten.  Our Convertible was off the charts great...we loved it and we had the best time driving from Naples to Disney World.  The Grand Floridian at Disney was terrific.  Your tour guide in Disney was terrific and we did everything we wanted to.  Thank you for an amazing vacation - you are a magician!

Liz & Chris

Just wanted to let you know how extraordinary our stay at the De Crillon is! We were upgraded to a magnificent suite. I think it was actually a two category upgrade. You probably already know this 😉 Upon arrival we were greeted with champagne, an outrageously wonderful cake and balloons, as well as a note written directly onto the full length mirror wishing Chris a very happy 50th birthday in Paris. Simply amazing! And just overall this hotel is so spectacular! (As was the Waldorf in Amsterdam—very special.) So thank you as always. Will fill you in on everything when we are back. We are really having a wonderful time.

Kathy Komar's Clients

Jeannie

Italy Family Trip

Kathy planned our family trip to Italy, including Florence, the Amalfi Coast, and Rome. Every detail was so carefully planned out. We had wonderful flights, trains, car services, tour guides, restaurants, hotels and even a tour of the Pope's summer house outside of Rome which had just opened for the first time. Kathy was exceptional, easy to work with and very pleasant when making changes. I would highly recommend her for all travel.

Very Satisfied

Davos Switzerland

I had the pleasure of working with Kathy Komar where one of her responsibilities was managing our executive and editorial presence at the World Economic Forum Annual Meetings that take place in a remote Swiss mountain town, Davos. Part of her role involved arranging travel and accommodations for our global team of 100+ people. This required a massive level of coordination across the plane, train and car schedules, cultivating local vendor relationships with hotels, dozens of apartment owners, local police, restaurants and car companies, juggling everyone’s constantly shifting schedules and personal preferences, and establishing backup plans to account for the extreme weather conditions that frequently arose. This is just one example of Kathy’s seemingly endless well of grace, organization, alacrity and dedication. Her strength lies both in flawless logistical planning and a keen eye for customizing small details that delight her end-clients, and I’ve continually been impressed with how she inspires the same work ethic and high standards in everyone fortunate enough to work alongside her. Anyone who meets Kathy will immediately recognize her passion for creating experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime, and she loves it so much she almost makes it look easy (it’s not!).

Jack

AMAZING TOUR

My wife and I utilized Kathy in planning our trip to Vienna and Budapest to celebrate my 60th birthday. Kathy was instrumental in recommending hotels, restaurants, tours and tour guides in each city that catered to our interests. Minimizing travel time between the two cities was critical and, Kathy ensured the transportation was efficient and comfortable while also enabling us to enjoy a scenic and informative view of the countryside. Kathy’s attention to detail is amazing and truly “wowed” us. Consequently, the trip is a memory that will stay with us forever.

Terie

Caribbean Sailing

We were extremely lucky having Kathy organize our sailing adventure to the Carribean. There was a myriad of logistics to prepare for our trip exploring the islands of St. Bart's, St. Martin and Anguilla. Kathy expertly arranged the flights, pre and post hotel reservations, captain and crew for our yacht charter (an amazing 51' Swan!) on/offshore activities, and great restaurants when not enjoying the meals prepared by our terrific onboard chef. Our trip was an overall delight!

Kristine & Natalie

Trip to Africa

And Beyond was a fantastic host. From the tour guide in Cape Town, Ngala tented camp, Kirkman’s Kamp and the extra support we received in Johannesburg. The level of service at Kirkmans kamp was higher than the rest. Incredible and the grounds were beautiful. Our room there was also my favorite. The tented camp in Ngala was the most special though. So unique and made for a special one of a kind experience. All the staff were perfectly friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. I would 100% go through &Beyond again. It was a trip to remember for many reasons but the staff made it clear their goal was for Natalie and I to have the best vacation possible. And that they cared about us. Thank you again for everything you did in organizing this trip, Kathy!

Carol Fleming's Clients

Pat

Thank you Carol for making our recent trip to Europe so memorable! Your attention to detail, your recommendations, your follow up and follow through made everything so easy for us. From train tickets, tours, car rentals, car services and hotels - everything worked perfectly! The villa outside Florence was fabulous and I can't thank you enough for all the time you put into getting us answers to our many questions! You are our "go to" person and we always recommend you to our friends!

Ryan

My wife and I have used Carol Fleming and Authentic Travel for almost every trip we have taken over the last several years. She has tremendous recommendations, is always attentive to my questions and needs and takes care of everything so you don’t have to worry. Carol has set up family trips for us, getaways for the two of us and even a tour to Islay in Scotland for me to take my father and brother and everything was perfect!

Beth & John

Carol at Authentic Travel helped us plan a once in a lifetime trip to Sri Lanka. Every detail was considered from unique hotels, excellent guides and drivers and the myriad of logistics required to see as much of the country as possible. It was a dream come true - we have recommended Carol and her colleagues at Authentic Travel many times and use her for all of our major trips. Thank you Carol!

Anne Druckman's Clients

Megan & Brian

Honeymoon to Antigua

Anne was instrumental with helping us plan our unforgettable honeymoon! From the beginning, she was responsive, attentive, knowledgable and flexible with all of our plans and interests. With no easy task of shifting original plans due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Anne provided us with reassurance and confidence by being informed with all updates in various countries while ensuring we felt safe and comfortable. Her recommendations and assistance surpassed all expectations. We will never plan another trip without her insight and input!

Jane & Jay

Portugal Adventure

Just a note to thank you, Anne, and Authentic Travel for arranging a truly seamless and wonderful trip for the four us. It is the first time we have spent over a month in one country and your logistics help turned out to be absolutely perfect. The company you used to rent the two villas did an excellent job and the interim hotels you recommended turned out to be just what we wanted. Thanks again for all of your help and guidance. Until next year!

Pat & Tom

We were referred to Anne Druckman in late 2017 after learning that she was the travel agent for a number of well planned and interesting vacations that a work friend and his wife had taken. Initially, Anne set out to understand our travel preferences for destinations, flights, hotels, tours, and other interests. Our first vacation experience with Anne was planning a trip to Italy. She suggested an itinerary way beyond what we envisioned, starting in the lake region of northern Italy, then on to Capri and the Amalfi coast. Every segment of the trip was thoughtfully planned based on our input and preferences, and seamlessly woven together. We were even serenaded and presented with a special anniversary cake on the Amalfi coast, as Anne secretly informed the hotel of our wedding anniversary! Since the Italian vacation, we have greatly enjoyed trips to: the U.S. Southwest, Costa Rica, Amsterdam, safari in Tanzania, and Iceland; all planned working closely with Anne. Noteworthy is the great amount of time and effort Anne put into planning trips to Portugal, Spain, Alaska and Sicily, only to have them cancelled due to the pandemic. We greatly appreciate Anne's professionalism and all of the emails, phone calls and research she does to make our travel experience perfectly tailored for us. We look forward to many more vacations that will be planned and arranged working with Anne. We highly recommend that you plan your next trip with Anne!

Jim & Kathy

Trip to Croatia

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful trip to Croatia that our travel advisor, Anne Druckman arranged for us. She listened carefully when we described the type of trip we wanted to take and designed the trip accordingly. She had great ideas and tips for us and answered fully any questions we had. Anne was always responsive and helpful, and her pleasant personality enhanced our travel experience.
