Avalon River Cruises

France River Cruise

To complete my certification as an Avalon River Specialist, I chose the Paris to Normandy cruise.  With a few extra days in Paris, it was the most relaxing and perfect way to see the beautiful towns along the Seine up to the Normandy beaches.

Great Travel Agent
Phyllis has assisted my wife and I in traveling to Europe and a cruise. Both trips were the times of our lives. She tries to understand what we like to do and match that with the trip. The hotels she suggested in Europe were 5 stars at a 3 star price. The breakfasts were unbelievable. We were in the middle of Paris, Vienna, Zurich, and Munich and within walking distance of most of the sights we wanted to see.

The cruise was also a delight. She asked us what we were interested in doing in a cruise and she gave us her suggestion on the best cruise for us at a price we could afford. We had never enjoyed a cruise as much as this one.

We are very thankful for Phyllis and what she has done for us!

Use Phyillis for happy trips!
She was a different experience totally. She made the trip in Europe on motorcycles a pleasure. She made everyday important. Flights were right on, hotels perfect. I will use her for all trips.

TOTAL PROFESSIONALS
I have known Phyllis and the Eileene's Travel team for over 20 years. I have traveled the globe multiple times and have always used Phyllis and Eileene's to book my travel.

Phyllis has great knowledge of the best air fares available....and and great knowledge of many of the finer hotels in various countries.

There have been a few times where airlines have cancelled flights or have had 'reroutes'....
Phyllis ansswers emails no matter what time zone you are in...and has the ability to make things work out.
Recently....during a major storm here in Florida, my flights were cancelled....with no notice to me by the airline.
Phyllis jumped into action and got us home the same day....and pushed the airline to accommodate us.
She is a jewel in the crown that makes her and Eileenes's my go to travel agency.

The Perfect Trip
Phyllis was recommended to me by a co-worker who has used her for years.
First let me say, her knowledge of destinations is incredible and for someone like me who had never been to Europe her information was vital to me.
2nd- she was always one step ahead of me. She answered my questions before I asked.
3rd- I was quite a case because my husband's passport came the day before our flight out. She had all the patience I could ask for and even at the last minute took care of everything. She even called me at the airport to be sure everything was going ok that morning.
Overall, I highly recommend her.

Should be the travel agent for the elite!
I am 67 years old. The first time I used a travel agent was 45 years ago. Until finding Phyllis Horodner, I was loyal to no one and cared less. Since finding Phyllis I could not imagine using anybody BUT.
She is savvy, bright, and professional. She listens and cares about what you want or need. She works quickly and goes above and beyond the norm. I consider myself extraordinarily lucky that I found her.
