My Travel Stories

Dining in the middle of 50,000 spindles of light

One of my favorite experiences to do in the Australian Outback of the Northern Territory is dining beneath a sky filled with stars and beside a desert illuminated by 50,000 frosted-glass spheres of light. Artist Bruce Munro's Field of Light art installation is something to see and experience first...Read more.

Most fantastic summer vacation!
It was such a pleasure working with Ann on our trip to London and Paris this summer. We didn't have the time to plan out our trip so Ann asked us a few questions regarding what we wanted to do in London and Paris, what type of accommodations we were looking for, and what our budget was. Once we sent her this information, she planned out every detail of the trip for us! She also made sure we had the proper documentation for the trip, as well as transportation for every adventure we did, as well as detailed instructions on how to get to the correct transportation. I didn't have to worry or think about a thing! Ann picked the most reputable companies for each excursion and we had zero issues will there. My perfect vacation!

Amazing Australian Adventure
Our trip to Australia couldn't have been planned any better. With only 8 days to spend in the country, Ann made sure that all of our requests were met and she even offered suggestions for a few things we didn't think of. A seaplane flight over Heart Reef in the Great Barrier Reef with a (safe) water landing to spend the afternoon on Whitehaven Beach was the highlight of the trip especially for our son.

She also suggested we change our itinerary to end our time in Sydney so we were able to enjoy the start of the Vivid Festival which was amazing to see. All the lights, the music and art was incredible to experience in person.

Thank you Ann for making our Australian Adventure one to remember! Looking forward to going back to see more.

An Amazingly Smooth Honeymoon!
My wife and I absolutely loved working with Ann! We were a little nervous traveling all the way to New Zealand, but Ann made us feel so comfortable. She was extremely responsive to all of my questions and was even easily accessible while we were on our trip. She worked within our budget and gave us an extremely enjoyable experience. We loved every hotel we stayed at and all of our tours as well. We let Ann know that we were Lord of the Rings fanatics and she made sure we went on the very best LOTR tours. I recommend Ann to anyone who is traveling to New Zealand because it was thanks to her that my wife and I had an unforgettable, once in a lifetime honeymoon and I will always be grateful to her for that.

Choose Ann!
Ann Frischmann is a terrific travel agent. I had a loose concept of what I wanted to experience in New Zealand and that was all it took for her to plan and schedule an incredible vacation. If I decide to return to New Zealand, which I hope I can in the future, I will definitely be contacting Ann again. She had plenty of ideas and suggestions and she definitely cares that each client has an experience catered to them. I was a bit nervous getting off the plane, having never used a travel agent before, but as soon as I spoke to the first shuttle driver and he had all my information, I knew I had made the right decision. Choose Ann, you won't be disappointed.
