Meet The Prethers

I love to travel. I have always been a wanderlust. I get really excited when planning a trip together with my client, making their dreams become reality. I stay in contact with clients before, during and after a trip.
I have traveled extensively in the United States and foreign countries. My two favorite trips are an African safari and an Azamara cruise from Monte Carlo to Rome.
A cruise to Russia and a trip to Costa Rica are two other favorites.
I have cruised the Mediterranean, the Baltic, Caribbean seas, the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans. I have extensive knowledgeable about all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.
All Holiday Tour & Travel emergency telephone calls, text messages and emails come to my cell phone or office. Needless to say I get client communications day and night seeking emergency assistance. We cover our clients 24-7.
I have led group trips in U.S. and abroad. I have planned extensive group travel for incentive programs, church and community organizations.
Our agency is a member of Travel Leaders, the number one travel consortium with professional world-wide contacts with most hotels, ocean cruise lines, river cruising, all inclusive resorts, auto rentals, guided tours and self-driving trips. But more important I have personal knowledge of world-wide travel.
My husband, Richard, and I are the owners of a nearly 30-year-old agency, Holiday Tour & Travel. I have an associate degree in specialized business and I am a graduate professional travel consultant. Having been a travel consultant for 26 years, I have been with Holiday Tour & Travel my entire professional career. I am the President of Holiday.
