We had an excellent experience with Olivia as our travel agent. She took the time to talk to us before booking to get an idea of our wants and needs. We did several countries and numerous cities on our trip; Olivia got it exactly right at every location! Every hotel, excursion and travel experience was exactly to our liking with above and beyond service and accommodations. We also ran into numerous barriers/changes with COVID19 while on our trip. Olivia kept an eye on restrictions for each location we were in, adjusted our trip/hotel/flights as needed in a way that felt effortless to us, but I'm sure was so much work on her end. We would book with her again and highly recommend her as personable, knowledgeable and hardworking.

The entire trip, once it happened (thanks to several reschedules) was very organized and thought through. When the original Galapagos operator cancelled late in the game, Ker & Downey quickly found us an alternative.
