Kim, we had the trip of a lifetime and are so grateful for your knowing guidance. Everything went off without hitch, all our guides and hotel staff were amazing and gracious.    -Ginny Clarke


Main Street Travel has opened up the world to us!  It all started in 2008 with a trip to Prague, Czech Republic with the Tampa Bay Lightning as planned by Kim, Vicki and the wonderful Main Street staff.  Since then we have been on a quest to visit all 7 continents.  With Vicki's expertise and guidance, we have continued with amazing adventures to South Africa, Great Britain, Ireland, Chile, Argentina, Antarctica, Easter Island and most recently China and Hong Kong.  Each adventure was impeccably planned by the Main Street folks to the last detail.  Next is Australia to complete the quest and you can be sure we will ask Vicki and Main Street Travel to show us the way down under!     -Michael, Alexander and Elisabeth DiChiara

Here we are on the tour in New Zealand, which has been a highlight of our world travels.  Not only did we get to see most of the country at a reasonable pace, we got to party with the Australians who made up half our little group of 20 or so travelers.  The early spring booking gave us the advantage of a small group and all the diverse weather New Zealand has to offer, from the North Island beach walks to the train ride in the snow in the Southern Alps. It was FANTASTIC!      Kathryn and Gil Lazier


It really was the most perfect Babymoon!  We had such an amazing time in the Turks & Caicos, the only bad part was having to leave!  They upgraded our room when we arrived and we are trying to go back next year with the whole family, grandparents and all.  Thanks again!!     -Ariana and Jed Fort


Our spring cruise from Bangkok to Dubai was filled with awe-inspiring sights, adventure and greater understanding of the many cultures in the countries we visited.  Ports included Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates.  From tri-shaws to elephant rides - we did it all!

Main Street Travel's professionals provide the intangibles that make a journey more than just a trip from here to someplace else and back. Principal among them are experience -- and taste.  They've been there, or know people they trust who have, and attempt to know their clients well enough so they can mesh their desires with the just the right mix of luxury,  fun, or edge -- to make sure it will be a memorable vacation or an expeditious business trip.  (And these days it doesn't hurt that they help keep a close eye on the bottom line, too).  We don't hesitate to recommend them, to anyone who'll listen.

Hi Kim, on behalf of the McLean Family, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for planning an incredible tour of South Africa for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and were especially touched by all of the thoughtful anniversary and college graduation celebration acknowledgements along the way.  You did a fantastic job in planning just the right mix of tours, safaris and opportunities to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of each of the areas we visited. Lazarus, Barney, Aubrey and Colli, among others, were fantastic. They were so friendly, humorous and accommodating, they became like family to us.  Again, thank you for everything. It was a wonderful trip of a lifetime!     -Michelle Mclean

Hey hey!!!  Was awweeessssooommmmmeeee!!

We just got here. First few hours. Jenifer said if she left now it would have been worth it!!!
The trip you put together has been spectacular!  THANK YOU!!!!     -Brad Childress

I can't tell you how thrilled we have been with our trip​!  Africa is magic :) Our honeymoon was an 11 out of 10, we loved every second of it!  I've attached a few pics of some of the highlights, but we have sooooo many.  Also, our guide in South Africa, Graham was wonderful!    -Craig Holzer


It is very hard to get our family together since  we are spread in 4 different states.  But by putting together a trip from Austin-Lehman, all interests were covered --  hiking, white-water rafting, horseback riding, and outstanding accommodations among the most scenic areas in the USA.  Jack and I as grandparents wanted to impress on the grandchildren the beauty of America, the privilege of being a US citizen, and the need to preserve our heritage.  This was accomplished through our Austin-Lehman trip! The guides were outstanding and our family members (19 in all with children age 3 through 18, plus 5 parents and 2 grandparents) are still  talking about it.  Even Greta, 3 1/2 years old, was able to make all the 15 miles of hiking, thanks to riding on the shoulders of guides, siblings, and parents when she was tired.  We are especially thankful to Vicki Krone from Main Street Travel for introducing us to Austin-Lehman, who also provided very nutritional snacks and meals (via our three excellent and energetic guides).  The only question the children have now is "When is the next trip?"  Vicki -  you're the greatest!

Two weeks time to plan a 2-month trip.....seems impossible.  Then I met Vicki Krone, a force to be reckoned with.  My first conversion with Vicki I could tell she had a innate quality of knowing just the trip I wanted to experience. She spoke with an ease of an experience, a conductor who was about to compose an opera that would be unforgettable and life-changing.  The plans were executed in a seamless, detailed explosion of wonder and beauty.  Vicki's planning allowed us to see, feel, and experience the culture, the people and the beauty of  Egypt, Dubai, Jordan, Jerusalem, Turkey, ending this magical mystery tour in Madrid, Spain.  Our flights were planned with the timing of a well-oiled clock, our hotel and accommodations were nothing but over the moon.  Vicki is not an order taker, she is a well-experienced travel agent who has the ability to ask the right questions, investigate all her sources and find the right fit for her clients.  She is not only an incredible travel agent, she is a what I would classify as a "Dream Maker!"

How does one describe falling in love, especially when you least expect to?  And indeed, how does one say “thank you” to someone who was able to translate our desires into two weeks of spectacular, unforgettable events?  Little did I know that Vietnam would wrap her arms around me and hold me in a dreamlike state that lasts to this day, constantly pulling me back to her magic.  Our recent trip to Vietnam was a wonderful, life-changing event – thanks in large part to the upfront work Vicki Krone did for us in arranging the perfect itinerary, even though we really didn’t realize that until we were well on our way.  Originally, we had thought Vietnam would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip.  Now we know, we’ll be back – sooner, rather than later – and this time, hopefully Vicki will be with us!    -Eileen and Jim Duty


This past summer my family took an Alaska Cruise to celebrate our 24th anniversary. Very rarely does the reality of  an experience EXCEED expectations.  This was the case with our Alaskan adventure!  My Main Street Travel team, led by Karen MacDonald, had every detail (large and small) planned with exacting precision.  All I had to do was “write the check" and enjoy!!!  I strongly endorse Main Street Travel as your Alaskan cruise specialists!!!!      -Dr. Todd Haber​


Our honeymoon in Costa Rica was Amazing!  Karen at Main Street Travel was great to work with.  She was helpful in making me understand what we were looking at online, because I wanted to do a lot of the planning online on my own.  She talked us through what we wanted and did not want in a hotel and travel arrangements.  I realized that I was a little out of my league with this trip.  Everything that was arranged through Karen was seamless, including all of the travel details down to the drivers for our daily excursions.  Our transfers between hotels and to the airport were long trips, but thanks to Main Street Travel, we were prepared for them.  This was a great experience.  I could not have asked for a better Honeymoon.  Every day seemed to get better and better!  I truly believe it is because we started with the proper planning and being as organized as we were, we did not have to worry about traveling and just enjoyed the travel experience.     -Matt and Amy Huber


We were fortunate enough to be invited by our dear friends, the Rowands to accompany them to Scotland and Ireland. The Rowands used Vicki Krone of Main Street Travel to plan the trip. Every detail was thought out and organized, and the vacation went off without a hitch. We had a driver (who happened to be a Duke!) pick us up at the airport in Scotland when we arrived and he was at our disposal throughout the trip.  The men played golf at some of the most famous courses in the world, while the girls got to shop and sightsee our way through the most amazing castles and museums. The accommodations were impeccable, from their locations to their rich heritage.  It was a trip we will never forget. Thank you to the Rowands and to Main Street Travel for making it one of the most special vacations we have ever taken.

We were so pleased with the services Main Street Travel provided on the Scotland/Ireland trip that when we decided to take our two children (Tyler-13 and Olivia-9) to Italy this summer, we immediately called Vicki. I had done some initial research and decided on Venice, Rome and a few beach areas that looked interesting. Vicki took it from there. She not only planned our route, booked our flights, chose our hotels, but she also figured out how we would get from one place to another and so much more. She thought of absolutely everything. We wanted a hassle-free vacation and that is exactly what we got. It was such a special time with our children. We experienced this wonderful country together and watching their faces as they took it all in was priceless. Thank you Vicki Krone and Main Street Travel for helping our family create memories that will last us a lifetime!!!  On the plane home, we decided our next family trip would be to Australia. We look forward to making it another life memory for our children with the help of Main Street Travel!     -The Landis Family

Kim Taylor, along with the rest of the fabulous ladies at Main Street Travel, handled all of our wedding travel needs, including all 75 of our guests' travel arrangements.  We hosted our wedding at the Four Seasons Kona- the event was spectacular and ran so smoothly all thanks to Kim's hard work.  We do a lot of traveling and we love Main Street Travel - they handle all of our travel needs!!

Vicki truly planned us the trip of a lifetime.  We had a lovely and knowledgeable personal tour guide travel with us across Turkey, taking care of everything for us and showing us amazing cultural and historical sites in Istanbul, Cappadocia, Izmir and Ephesus.  Then we ended up at a breathtaking resort on the Aegean Sea in Bodrum for four days of being pampered and lounging in the sun.  Turkey is a wonderful country, not to be missed, and Main Street Travel did a fantastic job planning every detail of our adventure.     -Steve & Dana Zeller


My wife, Terri, and I just returned from an expedition to Antarctica with an extension to Easter Island.  This was our first experience with Lindblad and we are delighted to report that it was positive in every respect.  We, and everyone with whom we spoke on the expedition, agreed that every aspect of the trip was exceedingly well handled and would be certain to select Lindblad on our next adventure trip if Lindblad offered the desired destination.  Vicki at Main Street Travel provided excellent assistance.  She was professional, responsive and knowledgeable about every issue.     -Allan G. Sweig


It was our first trip with Tauck.  You were just great in getting back to us with all our questions about taking our two grandsons on a safari with Tauck.  The boys are brothers, 14 and 17 and I think the attached picture will tell you a lot.  And it was only the first game drive.  The trip got only better from there on.

A huge thanks to Kim at Main Street Travel for making our honeymoon unforgettable.  The One and Only Palmilla in Los Cabos was amazing!

Our gratitude to Kim and the Main Street Travel team for planning such an incredible and memorable trip!  Everything you planned for us was seamless, and we felt like VIPs from the minute we stepped foot in South Africa!!     -Brad and Rachel Stephens


Kim Taylor and Karen MacDonald have been our travel agents since before Kim created her own agency.  We were so pleased with Kim's efforts (and more with her just being the kind of person that you could always depend on), that when she left her former employer to start her own agency, we followed her and supported her new endeavor.  Karen MacDonald just kind of happened--often answering the phone and then one day we just booked a trip through her.  And you know what- - just like Kim, another person you can count on no matter where you are or what time of the day or night it is!  We've traveled the world and these gals have shown us the best of the best, and have always been there for us!
