Meet Alma - Travel Counselor

What is your next adventure?

"Another great tour.  That is why we keep coming back to you." Ron Arnoldi

womanHi!   Welcome to Fox Travel.  My name is Alma.  I am one of the Travel Counselors.  I would like to share some of my background with you so that you can feel confident in allowing me to assist with your travel plans.

I have been in the travel industry since April of 1973 when I joined American Airlines in Dallas/Fort Worth.  During my 31 years with American, I worked in many departments including International Reservations, Domestic and International Tours, Platinum Desk and Baggage Service.  Most of those departments required that I travel extensively in a consultant role for work.  Because of this incredible benefit, I have also traveled all over the world as a “not so accidental tourist.”

Dr. Zahi Hawass, Egyptian archaeologist and former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs

I went to Germany before the wall came down and after it came down.  I have seen the Great Wall of China.  I have stayed for extended periods of time all over the United Kingdom and France.  I assisted in the airlift of U.S. service personnel out of Vietnam when it fell.  I went to Cambodia before it became the “cool” place to go.   I felt the romance of Italy first hand.  I have seen the beauty of the Tulip Fields and felt the heartbreak of standing in the house where Anne Frank was seized in Holland.

In other words, "I 've BEEN” there.

When you are trusting your business, honeymoons, anniversaries, or family trips to someone, it helps if you can know that they have the knowledge and experience to guide you, answer questions, and make suggestions on how to make the most of your time.  I have that knowledge and experience and am extremely passionate about travel. I'll help you add even more memories to your travels.

Put me to work on your next great adventure or small getaway.

You can reach me directly by email or by phone at  281-363-0808 or  800-256-2128 Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Thank you and hope to see you soon at Fox Travel.

What Clients are Saying About Alma

Fox Travel Texas - Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort"Alma, I wanted to thank you for recommending Frenchman’s Reef in St. Thomas.  It was a very nice resort.  And your request for the best room was honored by Marriott.  As a matter of fact, the lady at reception told us that our room was not ready when we arrived but that it was one of her favorite rooms as it was on the lobby level (no stairs or elevators needed) and it was at the end of the hall with a great view.  She then asked if we could wait while she ran down the hall to check the room herself.  Which she did.  She actually ran!  She returned with the news that the room had just been made available and we were able to check in.  And, by the way, the view was outstanding.  The food was great and so was the service.  I know it was a last minute request and am very glad you were able to find such a great place for me and my wife to vacation.  Thanks again." Don

"I love this place! Donna, the owner, is always available to answer questions unless she is on a tour herself, and Alma has been very accommodating. This is the best local travel agency in my area and they offer the most luxurious and exotic trips and tours! I recommend to all my friends in The Woodlands. :)" Alicia J (on Yelp)
