Meet Debbie -Travel Agent and World Traveler
Hi! My name is Debbie Parker and I am so excited that you are thinking about booking your upcoming adventure with FOX Travel. Let me tell you why I am the perfect counselor to help you make this trip into the vacation of a lifetime.
I started in the Travel Business in 1999 so I have lots of experience with all types of travel and that is what you need - someone who knows destinations and has actual experience of the places you want to go. I understand the importance of family travel as I am the mother of twin daughters and soon to be the grandmother of 4. My personal family vacations started when I began to take my twins on trips for their birthdays instead of having parties.
I tricked them into thinking it was all about fun instead of education - traveling to various places and experiencing different cultures is the best learning experience ever. For instance, on the girl's 13th birthday they wanted to see Hawaii, so we took a cruise around all of the islands. They were fascinated by the differences just from one island to the next. We also enjoyed an Alaska cruise and they just thought that they were riding on a giant hotel to climb glaciers and seeing cool animals. Instead, they were learning about the native Alaskan culture and experiencing beauty, nature, and learning how to make important financial decisions - like what souvenir to purchase with their limited funds.
Now, years later, my girls love to travel with their own families! Go figure. I applied the same philosophy to my nieces by giving them their choice of a trip upon their graduation from high school. One chose New York and we saw the Museum of Art, 911 site, Empire State Building, Ellis Island, and 2 plays. Another chose an Eastern Caribbean cruise and we saw the Bahamas, St Thomas, and St. Maarten (we participated in the America's Cup). The 3rd chose London and Paris. She was Harry Potter all the way and only later realized how much she experienced besides Hogwarts. In fact, none of them knew how much culture and history that they were witnessing in addition to having "fun."
My personal travels have taken me far and wide. Some of my favorite places and events are Iceland, Greenland, Giants Causeway in Ireland, Military Tattoo in Scotland, The Andes in Chile, kissing the Blarney Stone in Ireland, the monkeys of Gibraltar, the Ice Bar in Stockholm, and Copacabana Beach in Rio! I am a big fan of cruises. You get to unpack one time and then see so much. How else can you see Northern Europe and the Baltic, Great Britain, Iceland, and Eastern Canada before heading into New York Harbor? There is nothing more breathtaking than watching Icebergs calve and seeing all of the beauty of Alaska from the balcony of your own stateroom. If you haven't seen the Mediterranean Sea at sunset, then you haven't seen a sunset.
However, with everywhere I have been and everything I have seen, there is still so much more to see and do. I have my own bucket list that includes Switzerland, the Panama Canal, and the South Pacific. Do you have a bucket list? Come to see me and let's explore your list together.
You can reach me at email@example.com or contact me at the office Monday-Friday from 9 am-5 pm or call me at 281-363-0808 or 800-256-2128
What Debbie's Clients have to say:
"My husband and I love dealing with Debbie for all of our travel needs. We book numerous cruises with her and she is always on top of things from the "get-go". She is "super-efficient", very organized, and quite knowledgeable about the various cruise lines and their itineraries. If you need a cruise expert, call her. She's fantastic." Nicki J.
"I suspect any future cruise we do will be on Regent Seven Seas with Fox Travel. We had a wonderful time with excellent service throughout the cruise. Would like to pass on to the Fox Travel owners, the limo service was excellent. Despite our flight delay, the driver Mo, was there to meet us with our luggage. Thank you for your help throughout our cruise experience." John and Meg
"Hi Debbie, wanted you to know they [the honeymooners] loved the resort! They went to some Mayan ruins and did a zip-line thing, but they spent the majority of their time at the pool. They told me they are going back for their tenth anniversary! (I bet they go back sooner.) I'll contact you in the coming months about a river cruise for my husband and me. We'd like something where we can spend an additional couple of days in Prague. Maybe a Danube cruise that starts or ends there. Thanks so much for your help with the honeymoon. De Anna
"Debbie, Had a wonderful time [in Australia]. We covered a lot of ground, and saw many things. They keep you hopping for 20 days, and we do realize one has to do that to see and do all we did. From the coastal cities to the Outback, to a tropical rainforest, to the temperate forests of New Zealand, we saw such a variety. It wasn't just what we saw, but what we experienced that made it memorable. We had cocktails at Ayers Rock at sunset, a foodie tour in Sydney, a balloon ride over Tablelands near Cairns, to a Jet Boat ride on the Shotover River. That is to name but a few. The bright spot was coming home to Houston, being on the escalator to Baggage and seeing a driver with 'Harold and Carole Kergosien'! I could have kissed you at that moment, Debbie! We were so tired, and not to worry about getting our car was great! Thanks, again! Our best!" Carole
"Debbie at Fox Travel set our arrangements up for our trip to Playa Del Carmen. Debbie definitely set us up!!! We went to Secrets at Maroma and it was absolutely amazing. Debbie was always available to answer any questions I had before our trip and while I was all over the place trying to decide where to go. I would definitely recommend using Fox travel!!! I plan on using them again for our next trip." Alana (on Yelp)
"Debbie at Fox Travel made all our arrangements for an amazing 2 week trip to Italy for our son's wedding. It was fabulous!! She just recently set up a cruise for us and it was also terrific! No worries, she takes care of everything!! I definitely recommend Fox Travel and Debbie. Looking forward to booking more trips with her!" Nancy J (on Yelp)
"Debbie, we had a wonderful time. You did a great job on our trip, and everything went off as scheduled. Thank you so much! I have been planning to send you a thank you email or letter but am still playing catch up here. The weather was mainly in the 50s but the sun was out every day that we were in the British Isles. All the locals were marveling and telling us how lucky we were. The only day we got rained on was our one day in France. It went well, and we are pleased. "Jenelle Chamberlain
"Hi Debbie, The weather [in Alaska] was unusually warm. We went on the train in Skagway which was very enjoyable and beautiful. The overall Alaskan Scenery was fabulous and Victoria's Gardens (pictured) was outstanding. Thank you." Shawn
"Hello Debbie, my wife and I returned from our trip last night. We had a wonderful time in both Ireland and Scotland; thanks very much for your help. I wanted to thank you for a great trip; the weather was not perfect but it was expected and never really stopped us from doing all we wanted to do. “ Jim and Sharon Cronin
"Hi Debbie, Here are a few pictures (full album on Facebook) from the Grand Hyatt in Kauai as well as a photo of the Jurassic Park Falls from our helicopter landing, a photo of the Poipu Bay Golf Course, and a photo from our raft ride along the Na Pali Coast. We really enjoyed the raft ride especially!! Thank you again for helping to organize everything. We really loved the hotels, especially in Kauai." Amanda and Logan Winchester
