Gail Rodenhauser

My love of history, art, foreign culture, and people led me to become a professional travel consultant in 1998. I want my clients to have the perfect trip.

My relationship with the client continues through their vacation and beyond, becoming their source for future travel.

I love cruising, but I think it is so important that my clients get the right ship and the right itinerary.

In 2011, I attained the top ranking of E.C.C. (Elite Cruise Counselor) certification which gives me the knowledge to help you find the perfect cruise or river cruise for yourself, your family, or your group.

For over ten years I have escorted two to three groups a year on tours or cruises to places all over the world. Group travel is a wonderful way to travel for many people. Affinity groups, ladies groups, and organizations find a common bond in traveling to such places as New York, Costa Rica, Europe or China.

My favorite places include Istanbul, Tuscany, Barcelona, or wherever my vacation takes me. The crown jewel that I have found is St. Petersburg, Russia. I have traveled there three times, and have become a Baltic specialist. Recently I have traveled to Turkey, Viet Nam and Thailand, Hong Kong and Hawaii.

I find such joy in going to different countries, meeting new people, and bringing back wonderful memories. Opening the door to the joys of travel for my clients is my privilege.

"Tulip Time" River Cruise - Avalon Waterways
We boarded our wonderful Avalon river cruise in Amsterdam for 7 nights of spectacular scenery in the Netherlands and Belgium. Keukenhof Gardens is the most beautiful garden I have ever seen with over 70 acres of gardens.

"Spain, Sicily, Malta & the Amalfi Coast" Azamara cruise
I love Azamara's mid-size ships, and I love their itineraries. This itinerary gave us 4 stops in Sicily. One was the "Valley of the Temples" in Agrigento. But my favorite port was Malta. St. John's Cathedral - the Knight's Cathedral is a whole novel unto itself.

Oahu and Kauai, Hawaii
In busy Honolulu, I stayed at the Kahala resort and felt like I was in a far away tropical paradise. In Kauai, I stayed in the St. Regis Princeville, a true luxury jewel. The setting of the hotel is almost a "movie set". The beauty is astounding.

With stops in Istanbul, Ephesus, Canakkale, Kusadasi, Antalya, and Cappadocia we saw a widely diverse country. I love it all, but my favorites were the ruins of Pergamun on a mountaintop near the Aegean Sea; Ephesus; and, of course, flying in a hot air balloon above the Cappadocia.

Thailand, Viet Nam, and Hong Kong - Seabourn Cruise
From the hustling and bustling Bankok (where we stayed at one of my favorite hotels - the Peninsula) to floating down the Mekong River on a Long Boat, this cruise was one of my favorite trips of a lifetime. Don't miss going here!! You will love it.

New York City
I love the energy of New York. Theater, art, shopping, great food and wine, and the whole world is represented in one city. To top it off, you can stay in some of the best hotels in the world.
