We used CSB Travel for an anniversary celebration to Mexico and it was absolutely perfect! Cristina and Kristie were wonderful to collaborate with and made our vacation special by really listening to what we wanted and tailoring the experience. I highly recommend CSB Travel and can’t wait to plan another vacation!
We have used Cristina Buaas as our travel advisor for numerous vacations, both in the U.S. and international. Her knowledge and professionalism are second to none. She takes the time to ask thoughtful questions when helping plan our itineraries, and her recommendations always fall in line with what we are looking for. She is careful to stay within our budget, but always finds the most amazing accommodations and experiences for us, at a cost we could not get on our own! She does not leave one detail left to chance, which translates into a dream vacation every time! I have recommended her to friends and family, and all have shared my sentiments! You can not go wrong with CSB travel!
We have used Cristina Buaas for many years and have been very pleased with her help. She has been very knowledgeable about lodging, dining and excursion options for the domestic and international places we have visited. She has also been very helpful regarding trip insurance. She has put together detailed itineraries and kept us well informed about changes and travel requirements like visas.
Cristina and Kristie worked with us for three months to plan a winter trip to Greece. Their services are truly “value added.“. Cristina had been to the 2 hotels that we were considering in Athens, she had real-time pictures and spot-on advice. The team also put together the perfect itinerary which included arranged airport ground transportation, plane tickets in Greece, and tour guides. Lastly, she and Kristie were diligent in making sure that we got the Christmas lunch reservations that we desired at our hotel. We are already planning our next trip with Cristina and Kristie. They are amazing. We highly highly highly recommend.
She is extremely knowledgeable, very thoughtful and has attention to detail. She remembers prior trips and your preferences. She also introduces new ideas for consideration to make sure you understand the full spectrum of opportunities.
I have worked with Cristina on close to a dozen trips. She understands the kinds of travelers we are and our preferences. This was a very special trip so it was great to gain the benefit of her insights. She has been so many places and done so many things she is always able to bring great ideas and suggestions so that a very good trip becomes a trip of a lifetime.
Working with Cristina Buaas and her team gives me reassurance that every detail has been checked and double-checked. And by booking a Virtuoso property, we are given all sorts of perks that make a tangible difference in our stay. I was recently asked by our in-laws for our travel agent’s name since they had heard about the fabulous trips she has planned for us. They asked her to help them book a cruise, and they have been astounded at the level of professionalism and knowledge Cristina provides. I would agree. Cristina has travelled the world, knows the properties, the cruise lines, the best adventures, the best hideaways, the best bargains, the best tour operators, the best restaurants—all delivered to you with a smile and a level of confidence that allows you to relax and trust her guidance.
This was just a spectacular trip to Walt Disney World and Universal. Planning is everything for a WDW trip and Cristina and her staff just made this smooth, easy, memorable; and super FUN! Five stars*****
Cristina organized a river cruise on the Danube for our family, followed by two days in the Czech Republic. This area was new to us, and we were traveling with elderly parents as well as family members who did not speak English. Cristina created the perfect trip. AmaWaterways cruise had five activity levels for their tours, so the parents could go on the “gentle” tour and others could walk, hike or bike. For the Czech Republic portion, Cristina arranged for a Spanish-speaking guide to pick us up at the ship in Germany and drive us through Cesky Krumlov (extraordinary city we would not have known of if she had not had arranged it) and then the same guide toured us through Prague the following day. It was a magical trip, flawlessly executed!
Cristina and her team helped guide and develop the most wonderful vacation. After a couple of conversations, they grasped exactly what we were looking for and assembled a perfect itinerary. They took the hard part of planning a trip out of our hands. We will definitely be using them again!
