This was our first time working with Windy City Travel, and the experience was Wonderfull. Our plan was to visit Ireland, London, Paris, Normandy, and Belgium. We worked with Kathy Allinson and I have to say "impressive" is to small of a word to cover Kathy's experience, connections, planning and commitment to overall customer satisfaction! Kathy not only set up the perfect hotel accommodations but her relationship with all of the hotels made our experience a continuous VIP level. Her relationships in each country surpassed our expectations with every guide and tour she arranged. Every guide not only shared the top level tourist information, because of Kathy they spent more time and involved us in more of the culture and history of the area. Every tour seemed like a master class of the area and further peaked our interest to learn more and more. Kathy provided us with the trip of a lifetime and the joy we experienced cannot be fully expressed in this review. On a scale of five stars Kathy is a ten! Thank you Windy City Travel.

Our honeymoon to Italy was the first time we used a travel agent, and we will only use Kathy and Windy City travel in the future. Kathy was kind, professional, and wonderful to work with and she has a very strong knowledge of Italy (having been there many many times herself) and has the perfect intuition on the details and rhythm of a vacation to Europe. The trip was absolutely fabulous. Everything exceeded our expectations and we could not have asked for more. Kathy even worked behind the scenes to get us hotel room upgrades and other nice surprises. The hotels, excursions, tour guides, recommendations, and the general itinerary were all excellent. Looking forward to booking our next adventure with Kathy and Windy City Travel - we could not recommend her or her company more - they are the best and we are very grateful they took such good care of us!

My boyfriend and I just traveled to Italy for one week and had Kathy help us as our travel agent. We had the most amazing trip and it was all due to the amazing planning that Kathy did. She thought of every single little detail, including transport and sent us a very detailed itinerary prior to the trip, which helped us a lot! We did not have to worry about a single thing and will definitely be using Kathy again for our future travel! Would recommend her services to anyone planning a trip!

The trip was absolutely fabulous. The resort was great. The airport here and in Punta Cana went without a hitch. All in all a wonderful time.

My sister and I used Amanda here for a 2 week trip to Greece last year. She made the planning easy and did a great job finding amazing stays and transports for us. She was there for us throughout our planning, and while at times we felt like we needed more communication, it was clear once there she had exceeded all expectations. Our hotels we were always greeted with unique gifts and at 2 of the hotels, really nice room upgrades. We couldn’t have dreamed up a more perfect vacation, will be hard to ever trip this Greece trip. Highly recommend!

We just came back from an amazing trip to Morocco! Kathy helped us create some magical days. We rode camels in the Sahara desert at sunset. We took a hot air balloon ride at sunrise outside of Marrakech. We hiked in the High Atlas Mountains and visited a Berber family. We tasted some great tagines. The English speaking guide and driver that she arranged were exceptional. From organizing our stay in beautiful and comfy hotels to setting up adventures, Kathy Allinson helped us plan and create many great memories.

After a last-minute cancellation from a tour company I had booked with directly, I called Windy City Travel in a panic and Deni took care of me. Within just a few hours Deni was able to find a replacement Moroccan tour for me which was actually a much better tour AND I didn't need to change my plane tickets (booked through Dan at Windy City Travel). Both Deni and Dan were amazing. Will definitely continue to use Windy City Travel.
