Rebecca Dahl

Rebecca brought to my attention that my passport needed to be valid for a period of time after my re-entry. (who would've thought!) Thankfully she let me know and I updated prior to our trip. She stayed in contact until I received an updated passport. Now that's going above and beyond.

Jessica Linquist

Jessica was amazing from start to finish. She was always easy to reach, knowledgeable and easy to work with. She went above and beyond getting our entire wedding group to Mexico. We had travel delays and a medical incident while we were in Mexico. We were able to communicate with her the entire time and the trip turned out amazing. So glad that we chose to work with her. (and also that she sold us the travel insurance plan) I will tell everyone I know to use her to plan their next trip.

Christy B.

Christina Willar

Every detail was lined out perfectly, the trip was awesome!!

Donna P.

Amy Wolfe

Amy is a cheerful and energetic young lady with an obvious excitement for travel, not just for herself, but for her clients. Her broad experience of travel and the nuances of it were reflected in the planning that she did for our group of six with our trip to New Zealand. Our group consisted of ages 22 to 60 and she had no hesitation in finding things for us to do that would satisfy all age groups.  We usually received a response via return phone call or e-mail response within 1/2 hour of an inquiry.  Amy was genuinely excited for the six of us to take our trip to New Zealand as not many of her clients have taken such a trip. She offered insights and ideas that we would not have thought of on our own such as exchanging money in the US instead of NZ...what to expect for jet lag...use caution when driving on opposite side of the road...which airplane seats might be the most desirable for a long flight. Her attention to detail and diligence on our behalf was much appreciated.  I have every confidence in her travel planning and travel experience and would highly recommend her to my closest friends and family.
Without a doubt, we would use Amy Wolfe again. I am usually the "informal travel agent" in my family, but with a trip as grand as New Zealand, I knew I needed help. She covered all the bases that I would not have thought of. For example, going through customs can be a lengthy process so we were glad that we had ample layover time to get through customs with ease. I would have tried to find the shortest time between connecting flights. I wouldn't dream of planning an important trip without Amy!

Beth P.

Lois Sullivan

Lois was complete, accurate, and prompt with helping us on our trip to Jamaica. a real pleasure to work with. the trip went smoothly with no problems. the resort was all it was promised to be. We hope to use Lois again on our next big vacation!

Kristi Flaten

Kristi provided us with valuable information that helped us choose our anniversary cruise. She was very prompt in returning research and responding to any questions that we had. Very thorough! We always refer Kristi to our friends a family looking for help wiyh travel. She is our #1 travel agent and our only travel agent!

Don & Sue F,

Karen Dembowski 

Karen was amazing!! I will definitely use her again for our next trip! Thank you Karen for doing such a wonderful job!! 

Robert & Angie F.

Emily Hollermann

This was our first experience using a Travel Agent and Emily went above and beyond any expectations we may have had. From the initial cost to the small details and last minute changes, she did an exceptional job.
Emily promptly and completely replied to all of our questions and communications. She kept us informed of timelines and when we might receive a reply on those aspects she was handling for us.
She did a fantastic job throughout our entire trip planning process. From the initial travel arrangements, providing us with pricing and options right down to a last minute change when our hotel cancelled our reservation due to the hurricanes in Puerto Rico. Emily was able to find us new accommodations during the busy Holiday travel season without a significant impact to our trip. We were even impressed by the way she remembered us while we were on our trip.  We would definitely recommend Emily to friends and family if they were looking to plan a trip.
Emily will definitely be our first call when it's time to plan our next trip.

David & Annette R.

I have recommended Jessica to family and friends. In fact, many of them have become loyal clients of Jessica's.
We always use her to book our travel.

Duane & Susan N.

She personally called me and got us all booked on a later flight. Very exceptional service!!!  I do and will continue to recommend Sheila!!!

Janel C.

Elaine Johnson

Elaine always meets my expectations because we plan together.  She was able to help me get the shuttle service in Boston to pick us up at Logan Airport. The shuttle service was not responding to me.  Elaine has all of my trips planned down to the last detail to meet my budget needs.  I would definitely recommend her to my friends. She plans the trip according to your budget, what you want to to do, and see.  I would only have Elaine help plan my next trip because I get what I want for a good price.

Robert P.

Audrey Hulsey

Our experience in France was beyond our wildest expectations. Thank you for all your help and guidance in making the arrangements.

The Relais & Chateaux properties were more than what we had hoped for! They are all rich in history and the settings were remote and in the country. Very relaxing and catered to our every request. The restaurants in the hotels were gourmet with wonderful menus and extensive wine lists. The Chateau d'Audrieu was our favorite. At each location we were able to take self tours for the day and experience the French countryside on our own. Christophe, Barbara and Emma (wine tour in Saint Emilion) were outstanding. I could go on and on about each one of them. We need to get you Emma's contact information because it was a very special experience.

The Louvre tour was amazing however not quite as intimate as the other tours. Doing the walking tour with Barbara followed by the Louvre tour really took it out of us. In hind sight we should have done those on two separate days. But we did have fun on our own the next day retracing some steps and visiting things we didn't get a chance to with Barbara. We also took a river cruise the last day as a recommendation from Barbara. (did I say we really liked her? lol) She was able to give us history, architecture, and food insights all in one day. Just what we wanted.

Christophe is one of the most knowledgeable and interesting guides we have ever experienced. I would have him again because of all the details he shared it was hard to keep track of everything. Just a wonderful day with him and it set the tone for the rest of our trip. On the not so good was the tiny car tour. In defense to him it was scheduled the same evening the Tour de France was in Paris and security had all streets closed off that he had wanted to take us on. We did get a very nice picture of us with the Eiffel Tower behind us. But it was a very loud car open top (and it was raining) and his English wasn't the best.

The location of the hotel in Paris was perfect and breakfast was good. The room was very small and of course didn't even come close to the Relais & Chateaux properties. It was much less expensive too so since we were there to see Paris it worked just fine. Also the car was perfect. High tech and included the GPS so the rented GPS was not needed and we could have saved the hassle and cost. We ended up with 3 reservations at Hertz when we got there so actually the car we ended up with was low mileage and as I said very high tech. That's the short version, we have many more great memories and pictures and we are still on a post vacation high.

Thank you Audrey!

Best regards, Jamie and Maggie

PS. Business class was definitely worth the cost and we would never travel again any other way!

Service over and above the traditional expectaions. Offered help before we asked in anticipation of questions or situations.

Jill Ward 

We have always been pleased with Jill's services for any of our travel plans  She is always very through. We have recommended her service several time already to friends and family. 

Bob and Bonnie T.

Christina Willar

Christina did an excellent job.  When we ran into a problem on our return flight (flight was turned back), I emailed Christina that night. She responded first thing in the morning. When we had a change of plans while overseas, Christina handled the changes smoothly and efficiently. I was very impressed.  I gave her a very vague and broad overview of what my travel needs were. She took that vague explanation and created a complete trip. We had everything taken care of. It was marvelous.

Cheryl A.

Karen Klaverkamp

Karen more than met our expectations.  She did a wonderful job following up on details, answering all my questions, etc.  We will definitely recommend Karen to people looking for a travel agent. And we will definitely  have Karen plan our next trip!

Ruth & Kenneth K.

Jessica Kern

Jessica was thorough and took the time, on numerous occasions, to explain everything to me. She was kind and patient when answering my questions...and I had a lot of them!  I have not traveled very much in the past but am going to start now. The number one reason for that is because of how helpful Jessica was. I will not plan a trip without Jessica's help. She is definitely in the right job and is excellent at what she does!

Jennifer G.

Kimmie Von Bargen

We were very pleased with the service Kimmie gave us in planning our trip to Africa.

We Love working with Dawn! Our trip was fabulous! It's easy to work with her-and easy to share feedback with regarding our trip once we returned. 

Tim G.

Carol Anderson

The hotel locations were a big concern for me, as I was concerned about transportation. She got a hotel right next to Paddington Station in London so we were able to walk there and take the tube everywhere. The hotel on St Andrews Golf Course was perfect for the boys to walk to the club house for their day of golf. Inverness hotel was beautiful location and we were able to walk to shops & restaurants.
Carol always responded to my questions promptly.

Linda R.

Emily Hollermann

This is the second time I've worked with someone at Bursch Travel and I have told many people to book with your company instead.of doing it themselves. It is worth the extra cost.

Josh A.

Candice and Joseph K.

Karen Dembowski 

Karen is exceptional. Her attention to detail goes beyond our expectations and provides confidence for our traveling experience.  She was always quick with a response to any question we had. She would search out the best options for us and always did so quicker than expected.  Karen not only did what we would ask of her, she provided extra information about the tours we inquired about, included suggestions for not-to-miss attractions, and she provided reviews so we could make informed decisions about our vacation. We travel as a large family of seven. Karen covers all the details to make certain we will be taken care of everywhere we go. From airport transfers to guided tours, Karen takes care of every detail.  I have already recommended her to others and I will again!!

Kevin W.

Melinda Mansfield

Melinda did a great job planning our trip to Europe. In a very long and involved itinerary, she coordinated flights, ground transfers, hotels and tours accurately and efficiently. We were able to enjoy our time and not be worried about missing a transfer, tour or transportation event. The hotels she booked were all excellent. The tours were interesting and informative and helped us get to know the culture and history of the different areas we visited. All in all, we had a great time and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Melinda to anyone considering travel in the future. 

Cliff and Debbie W.

Aime Mushatt

We always work with Aime for our travel needs and she is a joy to work with!!!  Aime was so thorough with keeping us informed as to options that were available in conjunction with our cruise. She really takes an interest in her clients and we truly appreciate her knowledge and expertise.  We will absolutely use her for our next vacation.

Terri W.

Melinda Mansfiled

Melinda went above and beyond an excellent job. We were trying to plan a once-in-an era full-family vacation to Ireland. Needless to say, it was a complicated process to coordinate eleven different schedules. Melinda took over and made the process unfold seamlessly. Extreme kudos to her for making this experience one that will be remembered as a fantastic trip of a lifetime.  We've already given her name to several friends and family members looking or a travel agent.  We will absolutely ue Melinda again for our next vacation.

We used BJ to help us book our honeymoon to Fiji and it was absolutely amazing! She organized everything from our flights, resorts, and transfers to and from everything.

She deserves it.  We definitely will use her again for our travel needs.

Stephanie & Troy Z.

Krisha Friede

We had issues at our resort and contacted Krisha. It was a comfort to know that she was there to help try and resolve the problems.

On our trip last year our flights were missed due to mechanical problems and she was on the phone with us walking us through what to do. We couldn't have done it without her! I would definitely refer a friend to Jessica and I have!

Tammy always has a great recommendation for where to go regardless of whether we are looking for a trip with our children or an adult only getaway.   She got back to us with information right away.  It's in my nature to have questions and Tammy answers every one of them quickly and provides great information so we leave for vacation knowing everything is going to be great.

Just to let you we had a wonderful vacation. The Iberostar Bravaro was a gorgeous resort.
We had a beautiful room with a pool view on the second floor of the suite...just what
I wanted. Weather was beautiful every day, 83 degrees feeling like around 87 because
of the humidity. The girl from Delta Vacations (Maria Cruz) was very nice and helped
us book a couple of tours. Our transfers to and from airport were prompt. We had such
a fun time. Thanks for all your help. Whenever we decide to book another vacation
we will surely go through you and your travel agency.

Our cruises have been wonderful thanks to Jessica and all she does for us.  Jessica always gets back to us within the day.  I have special needs with an allergy to shellfish and we have sleep machines.  She always has this addressed for us.  We always call her first and all of our friends that have traveled with us, use Jessica, from SD, WA, TX, MN.

Jill did a great job helping us with our trip. She was very helpful and easy to work with!  Shewas very efficient with answering questions and providing information and was very detailed and helped us with things that we wouldn't have thought of in regards to our travel.  We have used Jill before and will continue to do so. We will also recommend her to others.

Dawn Kopperud

We booked our honeymoon through Dawn in the Marshall location and unfortunately had some major flight issues that forced us to completely change our plans at the last minute (we were sitting in the airport when they finally cancelled our flight 6 hours later). We were so thankful we'd gone through Dawn as she was able to get us completely re-booked to an entirely different destination and we were still able to enjoy our honeymoon only missing about a half day of our trip. We would HIGHLY recommend her and Bursch Travel and will certainly be working with her for future trips!

Julie Carlson

I just wanted to take a few minutes to commend your company for it's amazing customer service.

1 1/2 months ago we were in China finalizing the adoption of our daughter when we hit a snag with our paperwork (outside of our control). We contacted our travel agent (Julie Carlson at the Alexandria, Mn. office) - waking her up in the middle of the night. Though we apologized for the poor timing (there is a 13 hour time difference between where we were in China and Alexandria), she never seemed annoyed or frustrated with us - only helpful, polite and caring.

We are beyond thankful that your company hires such amazing employees - who care so much for their customers! During our most stressful moments, Julie was the calm in our storm. She was able to talk with Delta and cancel our previously purchased tickets, and then book us tickets in a pinch when we were finally able to come home. She got our change fees waived and was even able to retain our 'economy plus' upgrade we had paid for previously. We can't thank her enough!

Again, Kudos to Bursch Travel! We will recommend this company to anyone who needs travel assistance and will definitely be contacting them in the future for our own travel needs! Thank you!!!

John Gossen

I want to say thank you to John for putting the Huatulco vacation at Secrets together for us. Huatulco is so beautiful, clean and safe. We would definitely make a return trip to that destination and Hotel. We were very pleased with our room and were happy we did not have a swim out room. The swim out rooms pools got very hot and are not very private, I felt anyway. We did not experience all the restaurants, but very much enjoyed, the Sushi one, the steakhouse and the seafood one. The hotel setting is just gorgeous. I also felt we got a better deal going through Bursch travel than if I had tried to put the trip together myself. Thank you again. I will definitely go through John at Bursch for future travel.

Edie Lenz

I just wanted to tell you how great I thought our travel agent was. While we were on our first trip out of the US to Morocco our flight was cancelled because of the Air France strike. To make a really long story short...Edie Lenz @Bursch here in Austin, MN rescheduled our flight, hotel etc. on a weekend she was off. She handled everything so well and kept in touch with us the whole time so we could still have fun on our vacation and not have to worry. I'm sure you hear about problems through travel but I thought you should know about your agent that from beginning through after we returned was fantastic. We will always book our flights and vacations via Bursch now. Thanks!

Edie Lenz

We wanted to commend our travel agent, Edie Lenz, for the outstanding service she provided us in very recently arranging international travel for our son. Above and beyond her expertise with the multi-faceted ticketing process, she exhibited genuine concern and compassion for the circumstances necessitating the need for his travel, for which we were very grateful. Thank you so much, Edie.

Jessica Kern

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you about my experience with Jessica.  I contacted Jessica in January about taking a family vacation.  I was not set on a place or a time and told her that I wanted to keep it right at $5,000 for my family of 5.  within a day she had found a few options for us to take a look at.  I have always wanted to go on a Cruise, but for 5 people that was going to be tough to keep it under $5,000.  Jessica ended up finding us an AMAZING deal to go to Cancun for 7 nights to an all inclusive resort, flying out of Rapid City and kept it right at $900 a person.  My brother was so excited that he signed on to come with us as well.  Jessica accepted the challenge and booked him the same vacation.  All 10 of us left on June 10th.  I have to be honest and tell you it was the most amazing vacation.  I’m sure my children ages 12,9 and 8 will be talking about it for years to come.  I can say with confidence that our next vacation will be booked through Jessica as well.  We are hoping to make it a yearly opportunity to get out of town!  Thank you again Jessica for this awesome experience.  I have and will continue to give my family and friends your name when they are looking for vacations.

Mary Jo

I want to compliment the travel agents in the Austin office. Mary Jo Follmuth has helped plan many trips for my friends, family, and me. I was returning from Texas this February when, to no one's surprise, Minnesota was having horrible weather, especially Minneapolis and south. Mary Jo called me in Texas to inform me of the weather conditions as she knew I was scheduled to fly into Minneapolis that evening. She warned me of no travel in southern Minnesota and to be sure not to try to come home if we did get to the cities. When I returned the call Mary Jo had left the office to try to get home before she was snowed in so I spoke to I think it was Edie. She offered to find me a hotel in Houston if the plane was cancelled and anything else they could do to help. I was so impressed. I have always been highly satisfied with the service which is why I always use Mary Jo and Bursch in Austin as my travel agent and recommend them to family and friends. I truly feel this was above and beyond my expectations and I really appreciate it. Thank You.
