Praise for Allara
“I cannot recommend Rosie highly enough. She took the panic out of this vacation and truly allowed us to relax without worry while traveling. Thank you, Rosie!”
– Paul K.
“Easy as pie, and we got exactly the flights we wanted… We were happy travelers.”
– Meredith Y.
“This was the first time we have ever used a travel agent, and Rosie exceeded our every expectation. Her knowledge helped us to squeeze out every last bit of enjoyment of the trip (local knowledge on what to do and where to stay, hotel upgrades, best flights to maximize our time) that I know we would not have been able to do ourselves online. Thanks again Rosie!”
– Bryan P.
“[Rosie] went above and beyond by counseling me on a shady airline I had chosen for a flight between NZ and Australia. She suggested a much better airline for just a couple bucks more. I can only imagine the potential frustration she saved me by offering up that sage advice.”
– Tracy B.
“Here’s why I loved her. She had NO idea if I was serious or not about booking this trip when we first talked, and she was completely informative, weighed our options (this hotel vs that hotel, this island vs that island, etc) and knew everything there was to know about everything I don’t know! Not to mention, she always answers the phone and responds quickly to emails. Everything about Allara Travel is 5 stars and from now on, Rosie is my designated agent. Aloha!”
– Matthew H.
“We were so impressed with Rosie Katz and her incredible customer service. She worked with us to find the perfect property… I can’t stress enough how great it was to work with a professional!!!”
– Mike R.
“Rosie will be your advocate… if anything ever goes awry, going all the way to the top, if necessary; she doesn’t take no for an answer. I cannot recommend her highly enough – oh wait, I just did.”
– Munson W.
