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.

I will definitely use her services again!
Barb is the travel agent that anyone will be lucky to have! I truly enjoyed my vacation and would never have had done so without Barb. Barb has extremely good organizational skills. She goes above and beyond! Barb made the tour around Colorado go very smoothly. She followed up every day on me and how I feel. She is the best travel agent. I have ever had. I highly recommend Barbara Cottam for your travels.
