Sharon helped us plan a trip to the South Pacific in 2015 with another couple to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversaries. It included a 10-day Paul Gauguin cruise and stays at the Four Seasons in Bora Bora and the Hilton in Moorea. Sharon made it seem easy, although we knew better. We plan to use her on any future cruises and would highly recommend her for anyone else planning a cruise.
Sharon has coordinated over 10 trips for us since 2002. One trip included 22 family members spread over 7 staterooms. We keep coming back to Sharon because she is knowledgeable, experienced, and reliable.
The trip was outstanding! Sharon's recommendation to use Tauck for the river cruise was spot on. The shore excursions were terrific and several were exclusive to Tauck. If we do another river cruise, and we likely will, we will definitely have Sharon plan it.
