Adventure of a lifetime
Barb planned our trip through the United Kingdom. We started in London and spent a month traveling through Wales, Scotland and Ireland. She created the most amazing itinerary with stays in castles and routed us to so many wonderful spots. Her attention to detail and adding all the extras made our trip truly wonderful. I never had to worry about anything. She was checking on us through our whole trip and whenever we checked in to our location, many of them commented, "Oh yes" we just talked to your travel agent. It was very comforting knowing all was under control and all special requests were filled.

Ireland Dream Trip!
Barb created a wonderful adventure to Ireland. We were nervous about driving so she set us up with rail tours throughout Ireland. It was such a pleasant experience to enjoy the countryside without the stress of driving. We had knowledgeable local tour guides at each city and still had plenty of free time to enjoy the local pubs and music. Barb made sure every detail was taken care of and it was a comfort to know that even being many time zones apart she was always available. It was a great vacation and I will be using her services in the future for all of our travel.

Excellent family vacation to Catalonia
Barb was always willing and ready to respond to our questions and concerns, both during the planning of our trip and while we were on it! She helped us navigate a european vacation with our three small children amid changing COVID restrictions, helping us with trip insurance and ultimately changing our whole flight/car package from Scotland to Spain only three weeks before the trip. We were quite happy with the homes she recommended and booked for us and our flight arrangements.

I highly recommend Barbara Cottam for your travels.
