We met Betty about two years ago when she was putting together a group cruise circumnavigating Australia.  Up until that time we had always made our own travel arrangements, but not any more.  The program that she put together was one that we never would have been able to do on our own.  Betty has a way of customizing an itinerary to suit her client’s needs and wants, which is exactly what she did for the group that we were travelling with.  One of my favorite things about Betty is that she is always available to answer questions or concerns and does it with patience and a sense of humor.  I highly recommend Betty and will be using her for all of our future travels  P&B DeBauer

We highly recommend Betty O’Brien of Ask About Travel.  She guided us from the beginning of our (Mediterranean cruise) trip planning through to the end, answering our many questions, making valuable suggestions, and working within our budget.  We felt that Betty was always looking out for us, with many tips on safety, packing, and what to know and apply both on the cruise ship and the daily excursions. Will definitely work with Betty O’Brien again on our next trip.   J.B.Leech

Betty did a fantastic job getting us set up for our cruise circumnavigating Australia. Any problems were handled efficiently and with fast results, in our favor. The private shore excursions were the highlights of the trip. Tasmania, and Bondi Beach, were over the top. Her expertise on airlines, visas and local lore were the best. Way to Go, Betty, Good on Ya!

You’re the best. Everything without a hitch. You’re so good at this. Hope you got some texts from me. Wanted to share as we went along. I’m sooooo wiped out. 42 hours of travel!!! We have to do that differently next time. No sleep.  Maybe we can get together then. I’d love to share. Cause you understand…. you have to have been there As you know.

Never really thought about using a travel agent but twice Betty O’Brien came through. One trip was crazy in planning stops & dates. Lots of revisions, to say the least! The other was an emergency flight for my mom’s funeral. I gave her what I needed to do, she filled in all the blanks. And it didn’t cost an arm and leg ~ well within my budget. It wad worth the peace of mind to have someone do the planes, car, etc while I’m doing my job, my home, etc. Thanks, Betty!

“We would highly recommend Betty from ask about travel Hawaii ! She was very helpful with no complaints. We told her where we wanted to go and in the next couple of days she had information and books on the places we wanted to travel to. Betty found great prices for us without any problem and she chose wonderful places for us to stay during our trip. Betty was very organized and answered any questions we had. I would definitely ask Betty to plan our trip again. Betty was a wonderful help and we couldn’t of planned our trip without her! ”

“Betty’s planning of our trip, from start to finish was thorough, precise and, professional. It is obvious she is an expert in her field and covered all phases of our trip with knowledge and expertise, be it on ships, planes and trains, including transfers between hotels and the different modes of transportation going to our destination and returning home. We highly recommend Betty and vouch for her competent attention to every detail, especially since now we are classified as advanced seniors.”

“Whenever we decide to go on a cruise, we e-mail or call virtuoso travel agent Betty O’Brien of ASK About Travel in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

It seems that she just drops everything and takes care of our travel needs whenever and wherever she is – even if she is somewhere in the world travelling herself!

Betty knows what we like and handles all the details in advance, sends us reminders, and she also lets us know about new things she thinks we would like to try.

We recommend her in a heartbeat!”
