“Trip we will never forget to London and Paris! Lisa did a great job coordinating flights, train and hotel in such a short time! Lisa you will be hearing from us again soon!”

“I can’t praise Travelong enough. I never used this agency. I didn’t know them and they didn’t know me. I needed travel plans for an immediate trip to Florida for my brother’s funeral. Marlene answered the phone right at closing time. She was backing up her computer to shut down for the day. She had the patience to help us get the job done. An angel in my journey. Everything she did from flight tickets to a hotel reservation was spot on! I have found our new travel agent.”

“My husband and I had a great time on our honeymoon despite everything going on with covid 19. Sissy was fantastic to work with. She gave us tons of great ideas and options and was very accommodating and responsive.  Unfortunately we had to move our planned Hawaii honeymoon until next year due to the pandemic and within a short amount of time plan a new more local trip. Sissy made that transition seamless.  We picked a lovely hotel in Rhinebeck, New York, The Mirbeau Inn and Spa. The fall foliage was absolutely beautiful in the Hudson Valley during the time that we went. We were able to enjoy hiking, wine tasting, spa treatments and outdoor dining at the various restaurants. We felt very safe at the hotel and throughout our trip.  We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon  and cannot wait until our Hawaii vacation for our one year anniversary.”


“Marlene! As usual you are the greatest. Thank you for being so quick and helping me out this morning. Be safe and healthy! We need you 😊”

“We have been working with Theresa for many years now and she makes our travel planning a breeze. She is extremely knowledgeable about destinations and properties, but beyond that she is fabulous at understanding our travel needs and requirements. I highly recommend her!”

Kat W.

“We just got back from Hawaii. We had a wonderful time and are most grateful for Marlene’s sage advice and planning. We certainly would not have been able to do it ourselves, even with the internet. Thanks again”


“Thank you, thank you for all of your help in organizing our honeymoon to Hawaii. We had such an amazing time!!! The resorts were fantastic especially the Fairmont. And I actually thought I would like that one the least. Also, the champagne was delicious and extremely thoughtful. You’re the best, and I will definitely being giving you some rave reviews. Thanks again!! What a memorable honeymoon!!”


Theresa – “Amazing as always…She knows our family and does all that she can to help us (even with all of our last minute needs). And she is always a pleasure to work with. Theresa is awesome and pays attention to every detail which my family and I so appreciate!!”

Ellen – “Thanks again for following up with me this morning, you are on top of your game over there! These are the reasons we love working with Travelong, it makes doing business a pleasure when you work with hard-working people like yourself! Have a great day, thanks again.”


Marlene – “Thank you so much for suggesting the Sandpiper Club Med in Port St Lucie for my family. We all had the best time! The rooms were so nice and clean, the food was great – something different every day, and the entertainment was the best. My children and my grandchildren had so much fun, they had so much for the kids and adults to do. The weather was perfect the staff was so friendly, I would definitely go back again. I must say this was one of my best vacations with my family. Thanks again, great job!”


“Joe and I had a wonderful time in Bermuda. The weather was simply perfect and the Hamilton Princess was an outstanding choice. The staff couldn’t have been nicer and the arrangement with the Gold Lounge is a real added bonus. The infinity pool was great as was the beach club ( it’s a bit of a ride, but well worth it because it is so quiet and relaxing. Plus they have call buttons to bring over a server to order drinks and food, so you never have to leave your lounge chair!). The beach club is also setup with free paddle boards, pool floats, and hammocks, so we were truly able to unplug.”

Theresa – “Working with you is always a wonderful experience. You do a great job of providing various alternatives and then come through with an amazing room and great amenities. You are simply the best!”


Marlene – “Good morning… and Thank you! I wanted to let you know, you truly have a great team.  Elena, Ellen and Bob are true professionals! I am grateful to have you as our travel partner. Have a Great Day!!!”


Theresa – “An outstanding travel agent/expert. We have worked with Theresa on a number of our trips including Africa, European and Alaskan cruises. She is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful and accessible. Theresa gives us excellent advice and is always looking to put together an outstanding vacation experience while saving us as much money as she can. We highly recommend Theresa Bartsch.”


Theresa – “My family has used Theresa for several years now for our travel needs, and rely heavily on her expertise! My husband is always amazed at how well she has come to know what we like and expect during our travels. She is genuinely invested in your families’ experience!”


Theresa is an excellent advisor. She created a great itinerary from France to Spain. Air travel was well thought out and both hotels were perfect for us.


“Theresa has worked with us for years and always provides great ideas and service within our budget. I had all but given up on going away this holiday when she called us and told she found us a great trip at our price point. She always follows up to see how things are going and makes sure we get little extras from the hotels where we are staying. We have recommended Theresa to friends and I would never work with anyone else.”
