David & Carol
Judy & Gary
We originally booked our Viking Cruise in 2019 for a March 2020 departure. One week before we were to depart, the Cruise was canceled. The RoamingBoomers (David and Joan in particular) were exceptional! They notified me of our options, followed up to clarify and ensure we were aware of details and rebooked the original cruise 3 times!! (due to additional cancellations). They made a difficult travel situation so much easier. They paid attention to all the details – even ensuring our travel insurance was transferred each time the cruise date changed. I highly recommend RoamingBoomers! They’re the best! Always pleasant, proactive, and prompt to reply to any inquiries.
Cathy & Ronald
Roaming Boomers was very responsive to my last-minute travel plans and advised me as to the best stateroom to reserve. They made the reservation with Viking for me without delay.
Roaming Boomers assisted with the booking, changes, and updates on my Viking cruise. The current travel climate has seen multiple changes. Roaming Boomers was on top of the changes and kept me updated. They made traveling overseas easier than it would have been if I booked myself.
Gerard & Henrietta
I can only say two things about the Roaming Boomers: One: Terrific, all of them! Two: I Will use them definitely in the future!
Tom & Melissa
Roaming Boomers are the BEST!!! They are super helpful and kept us updated every step of the way. I can’t say enough great things about them!
Anna & George
I can’t say enough about our travel experience with Roaming Boomers Travel and Uniworld…a trip of a lifetime!
Larry & Roxanna
We actually had two trips planned with the Roaming Boomers before the pandemic and added another during the pandemic. Of course, all of our trips have been rescheduled 2-3 times. I can’t imagine trying to make all the cruise changes and airline changes by myself. Carol and her team were always available to help us and answer questions in a timely manner. They saved us money and helped us to get the best possible experience on each cruise. My husband and I can’t wait for our next cruise!
Carolyn & Shepherd
I am so happy I used Roaming Boomers for my travel planning. Because of the pandemic, there were many changes to our original plans. Roaming Boomers navigated through all the ups and downs of planning a vacation in the confusing time of traveling during a pandemic. They were always understanding, accommodating, and professional, offering knowledgeable advice along the way. They always answered questions in a timely fashion. I am so appreciative of all their help, even up to the time right before we departed and needed to fill out forms. I honestly never felt too stressed about our trip because I knew Roaming Boomers would be there to help me.
Cheryl & Michael
We could not be more pleased with the service we received from the Roaming Boomers! Dave, Carol, Kelly, and Joan always responded quickly and answered all questions, and made any needed changes. During the last 19 months (we planned our trip a long time!)we could always count on them to give answers and assistance. We are so very pleased with them and have told everyone about their services! Such peace of mind knowing they were behind us.
Mary & Ronald
This was the first time we used a travel agent to book a Viking cruise. So glad we did, as we heard from fellow travelers that Viking was slow to respond to questions due to the sheer volume of concerns people had in this time of rapidly changing travel requirements. Roaming Boomers was quick to respond and gave us good advice.
Suzanne & Betty
From the very first moment I called, my experience with Roaming Boomers was exceptional. I will definitely plan my next vacation with you.
Bonnie & Michael
We appreciated Roaming Boomers keeping our group of 4 couples (eventually down to 3) in sync with our travel plans, especially our flights. It was also great to have someone in the know about all the current travel restrictions, which were new and many.
Catherine & Paul
The Roaming Boomers are amazing! They walked us through the entire experience! We wouldn’t have been able to navigate through the Covid airport experience without them!
Holly and Stephen
Traveling during Covid is such a blessing, but also sometimes fraught with worry over all the paperwork/testing, etc. Getting regular emails reminding us of details was very helpful.
Armando & Elizabeth
Before we boarded the Viking Sky for our trip, we spent three days in Barcelona. Our Viking air reservations were scheduled by the Roaming Boomers Team, They are truly
first-rate. After our Viking voyage from Barcelona to Rome, we wanted to visit the Amalfi Coast. We were booked at exceptional hotels and we had outstanding personal drivers. The Boomers and their European partners are second to none. It was such a marvelous trip that we have scheduled a cruise to Canada next year. It will be managed by the Roaming Boomers.
Ann & Cliff
Despite the vacillation of the Netherlands about entry, we were able to complete our cruise as planned. Roaming Boomers were terrific throughout all the travel turmoil caused by Covid. Their recommendation of AMA Waterways was a perfect fit for us.
Carol & Anita
I truly appreciate Dave, Carol, Joan, and Kelly! They help make our travel so much easier!! Thank you, thank you! And while we noticed the airline company check-in team members were most concerned about the paperwork for entering Malta, getting the extra, last-minute head’s up from Kelly on getting a 2nd Covid test, eased our stress levels. Traveling now, vs. next year worked for us, and we’re so glad we used ya’ll to help us, and we are super glad we took the trip!
Denny & Patricia
Once again Roaming Boomers has hit a home run in planning our travel on a Viking Danube River Cruise. We were treated professionally and courteously by the staff and principals of Roaming Boomers. They looked out for us in arranging convenient, affordable, and timely travel. We have shared the Roaming Boomers with everyone when talking about vacation planning. We are happy and will continue to use Roaming Boomers as our travel experts.
Roaming Boomers made planning a trip during a global pandemic as seamless as possible. They were in constant communication and responded promptly to all my questions. I plan to use Roaming Boomers for all my future river cruise travel.
Steve & Liz
Boomers was so very helpful in getting us to book our 2 weeks “France’s Finest” plus the 3-day pre and post extensions in Nice and Paris. This trip was 2 weeks in two rivers in the north and south of France. They were really good assuring that we got all of the information from Viking and understanding the ever-changing requirements. We were very pleased to find that we had received the spirits package for each leg of this cruise, not sure if it was from them or Viking, but it was super. They had properly advised us on what we might expect for the weather also. RB will be our first choice for any future vacation plans! Great advice too on the insurance packages available too!
Deb & Jack
RB is always on top of their game. They are quick to respond and follow up. With all the crazy ups and downs of both this year and last, they still hit the mark of excellence!
John & Sylvia
Roaming Boomers has been of great assistance for us when planning at least 5 trips. They are quick to help with any issues and will always make sure you have the experience you were hoping for.
Deidra & Lanny
Love having roaming boomers on our side…most recently I wanted to book a very last-minute cruise, late at night…I texted them and they booked it and held my choice of cabin for me, before I even woke up in the morning…having them take care of air reservations is a really big deal…I am very particular about what seat I have and they work it out and give me my options…they are a pleasure to work with, all of them so very kind and thoughtful…
Holly & Stephen
I would not book a cruise by myself! It’s lovely to have everything taken care of by Roaming Boomers, I don’t have to remember things, and travel perks to boot! Iceland is like no other place, it’s like you’ve traveled to the edge of the earth. The views are simply epic and exciting. We normally cruise to “old” places and love it. This was completely different and every morning was a new experience. There is so much to do, no sea days. Viking did an exceptional job (as usual) of keeping us safe, but making everything fun, highly recommended.
Vicki & Barron
My travel experience to Hawaii was wonderful and perfectly planned. We would recommend all our hotels! The Four Seasons, The Montage, Hotel Wailea, The Fairmont, The Four Seasons Lanai. Dave and Carol Porter did a wonderful job.
Mike and Margaret
David, Carol, and their team at Roaming Boomers are the best. I’ve written complimentary reviews in the past about the numerous vacations they have booked for us but today I want to commend them on the way they have handled all of the craziness connected with the Covid19 pandemic. They have been on top of things from the start, contacting us about upcoming trips and discussing the alternatives offered by a river cruise line and a land tour company. I’ve greatly appreciated the time they’ve taken to explain our options and help us make the right choice for our special needs. It is relatively easy to be happy with a tour company when all goes well and one has a terrific vacation experience; it is another thing entirely when the world goes crazy, all plans are up-ended and fun trips are not on your horizon. David & Carol have passed both tests with flying colors. They are our travel agents for the foreseeable future. Many thanks to them for all their hard work.
John and Pat
Great service. Very personal and helped us in many ways.
Claudia and Edward
A spontaneous decision to make our first major overseas trip a Viking cruise to Australia and New Zealand was expertly executed by David, Carol & company. All speed bumps in the process were quickly smoothed. Roaming Boomers definitely stuck the landing!
JR and Sylvia
My experience with Roaming Boomers was great! We decided to go to Antarctica on short notice and the Boomers took care of everything on very short notice, to include an upgraded room on the ship.
Kay and Ed
Carol, Joan, and Lisa were helpful in getting the trip booked, and in sending reminders about excursion bookings and restaurant reservations. All respond quickly to questions and requests.
Christian and Tammi
Such a smooth process working with Roaming Boomers. Quick responses to any questions or clarifications in the year leading up to our trip. I’ve booked cruises for my family and me without a travel agent in the past. In this case, it was incredibly worth it to have someone on speed-dial who can help with any problems that arise and be our guide for everything.
Shirley and Lancle
This was our first time to use Roaming Boomers Travel. Dave and Carol helped us with our travel arrangements for a Viking River Cruise. Dave and Carol provided us with excellent customer service and information. We have been telling others about Roaming Boomers Travel.
Christopher and Wendy
Using RBTS made the planning phase effortless which is what I was looking for. There are several elements to consider and decide on and using a service like RB took a lot of the stress out of the process.
Lane and Debbie
The Roaming Boomers are always on top of things and communications are great.
Kelli and Rick
This was our first experience using Roaming Boomers Travel and it will NOT be our last. From the initial reaching out to them about our interest in choosing a fun trip to celebrate our 3oth anniversary, Carol, Dave, and their staff offered suggestions, followed up with every detail possible and planned an amazing trip to South America for us. It was so easy working with everyone and any communication on our end was answered promptly and efficiently. Rick and I are thrilled we chose to work with them in planning such a special trip.
Curtis and Hillary
Roaming Boomers was easy to work with and provided all the information I needed. We will definitely use them again.
Donna and Daniel
Roaming Boomers did an outstanding job with our airline booking and answering any and all of our questions! We are still in discussion as to what we would lime to do next. But Roaming Boomers will be the first to know.
Michael and Rose
We had all of our questions answered and received expert advice. These folks have an excellent understanding of what is needed to make us “Boomers” happy with our travel experience.
Barbara and Stanley
Roaming Boomers Travel Services helped to arrange our Viking River Cruise – “Cities of Light”. This was our first river cruise and Dave and Carol, as well as the entire staff, really streamlined the arrangements. I especially appreciated their help with flights and seating assignments.
Beth and Tore
What a pleasure it was to book our Danube River Cruise with Carol and Dave Porter! We found them by chance after a river cruises google search turned up a blog they wrote. We are experienced travelers but had never gone on a river cruise so it was great to deal with people who knew the ropes and were there to answer the many questions we had along the way. Would definitely recommend them!
Susan and Howard
We brag to everyone about Roaming Boomers. The staff at Roaming Boomers do a great job and helped us save $$. Their advice is always timely and helpful.
Wayne and Carol
We have worked with Roaming Boomers on several trips and continue to be fully satisfied with their professionalism and services.
Guy and Nancy
This was our second trip arranged by the Roaming Boomers. Just as the first time, they were very good at arranging a trip that met what we had asked for as far as hotels, transfers, day trips, etc. We fine-tuned the itinerary over several weeks until we were completely satisfied that the trip included everything we had hoped for. We had the Boomers arrange a land trip to Italy that fit in between a river cruise on the Rhone and a cruise on the Adriatic. The trip fit in seamlessly. It is hard to pick out what we liked best but the tour of the Vatican, the day cruise to Capri and the day trip to Mt. Etna and a winery in Sicily stand out.
Hud and Cynthia
Roaming Boomers Travel staff listened and managed the entire agenda flawlessly. They matched our expectations with better than expected outcomes. It was easy.
Carla and Bill
Roaming Boomers provided valuable information that guided me in choosing our river cruise. Dave helped me to know which direction would be the best travel route and Lisa helped me to add on a trip to Iceland to meet up with my daughter after we completed our river cruise. The Roaming Boomers’ help in choosing the right voyage, cabin and travel arrangements was greatly appreciated.
Patty and Brian
David and Carol truly understood the type of travel experience we desired. This trip was exactly what we wanted and expected. Every hotel was top notch, all of our guides were local and extremely knowledgeable. Our drivers were quite personable and knowledgeable as well. The balance of time spent with guides and touring sites along with free time was just perfect. We also felt we were able to immerse ourselves in each of the towns/cities with the help of our guides, drivers and hotel staff. Beyond the already planned meals/experiences on our itinerary, we were told about off the beaten path restaurants and places to see. Every single day was perfect and essentially went off without a hitch.
As always, Roaming Boomers was on top of everything. The recommendations were right on and answers to any questions were quick in coming. Great experience once again.
Charlie and Michele
Extremely organized and very helpful for our first river trip. We would highly recommend Roaming Boomers service, especially those that are not real comfortable traveling.
Sue and Al
The Roaming Boomers Group did an amazing job booking our Viking River Cruise. When I had questions, my call was promptly returned.. within minutes. The packet from the trip was sent out way before expected. The air flights and seats were booked exactly as we requested. Everyone did an awesome job! Thank you Roaming Boomers!
Julie and Robert
With the help of David and Carol, we booked a trip with Rocky Mountaineer. There were no frustrations during our trip. It was an incredible experience. The entire trip was flawless.
Fred and Kathy
Excellent service!! We asked to change our plane reservations twice and Carol handled it so graciously! Emails and paperwork were right on time to keep us on schedule for signing up for different things on our cruise. We were very well taken care of!!
Larry and Donna
Roaming Boomers did an excellent job of handling all our travel requirements for this river cruise and kept us well informed of any changes which needed to be addressed before our journey.
Betti Ann and Adelbert
The Roaming Boomers made everything easy, always ready to answer questions, give
suggestions and “be there” when you needed them.
Lisa and John
The Roaming Boomers, David and Carol Porter, have provided exceptional support and service on our past three cruises. This is especially true when dealing with the cruise lines on some challenges. They were able to negotiate on our behalf towards a positive resolution.
Debbie and David
The Roaming Boomers were excellent to deal with. Answered all questions promptly.
Tim and Marilyn
As we had heard from others who worked with the Roaming Boomers, everything exceeded expectations! We made some changes to the basic travel plan and all our requests were completed to our satisfaction. Just super service! Thanks, Carol and Dave!
Donna and Rick
Roaming Boomers were great support prior to our trip and were always willing to answer my many questions. We would recommend both Roaming Boomers to anyone wanting to enjoy a memorable vacation.
Everything was well done on your part. It was a great cruise. Thanks to your agency all went smoothly.
Robert and Mary
Carol and Dave were very helpful and accommodating. They made our arrangements for the Viking cruise, including our air connections, plus they arranged for a side tour for us in Amsterdam. All of those arrangements were smooth and seamless.
Cheryl and Paul
We really wanted to try a river cruise but did not know much about them. We had ordered brochures from different river cruise lines but still had questions. We called a local travel agent and they got back to us a couple of days later with info cut & pasted from the brochures we already had. Someone told us about Roaming Boomers so we got on the website and Dave contacted us via chat. He was able to answer all of our questions immediately and we booked our trip.
Kristine and Family
Carol and Dave were a pleasure to work with. They were very good at keeping our group informed about our trip – what to expect, flight changes, etc.
Deb and Terry
Working with Dave and Carol was very easy. Whenever there were questions or concerns, we had a quick response time. This was our first cruise in a number of years and Dave spent a significant amount of time fielding my concerns and questions.
Linda and Robert
We were very pleased with the service from Roaming Boomers Travel Services. Answered all our questions in a timely manner.
Kitty and Jack
They were informative and accessible for questions or issues that occurred prior to and during the cruise.
Walt and Margie
Dealing with Roaming Boomers was a pleasure. They are responsive, kind, helpful and knowledgeable! What more could one ask for?
Rusty and Barbara
We have always had Alaska on our “bucket list”, and after our fabulous trip to the Society Islands on the Paul Gauguin which was planned by the Roaming Boomers, we read with interest their description of the Alaska cruises. When we contacted them last year, Carol and David helped us decide on which cruise line to take and then helped us every step of the way with the planning and scheduling of the key steps. They were always responsive and helpful. The trip was done without a hitch and everything about the cruise with Regent was first-class as they had described.
Cathy and Rich
The Roaming Boomers make travel planning a breeze and any questions were readily answered, we use them again and again!!
Carolee and Dmitri
My travel experience with Roaming Boomers was excellent. Carol was easy to work with, got back to me in a timely manner. Helped with all my questions, and arranging travel plans. We even got a room upgrade! We ran into one glitch with the transfer from Munich to the ship, and Carol graciously took care of the train transfer expenses. Very professional and friendly. Her and David really know their stuff! Thank you!
Jan and Mac
Carol was a wealth of information in planning our first trip to Hawaii. Her insights into which islands to visit given our interests as well as where to stay were invaluable. When our flight out was delayed, requiring a hotel cancellation and reschedule, Carol took care of everything. We cannot say enough about the personal, responsive service.
Tim and Chris
Our planning experience with the Roaming Boomers was uncomplicated and all of our questions and concerns were addressed in a very timely manner.
Phyllis and Ray
We are very pleased with our travel planning experience. We loved the hotel that was recommended during our stay in London. Everything went smoothly with our Globus Tour arrangements.
Steve and Carol
Great Roaming Boomer interface and advice, as always. Thanks!
Jim and Jeanne
The travel experience with Roaming Boomers was flawless as usual. We really appreciated their efforts in reserving our return via Air Canada and securing our seats for us.
Steven and Virginia
We are fairly experienced Viking cruisers at this point, so we knew what to expect regarding the cruise. However, we wanted to stay a couple of extra days in Budapest on our own. The Roaring Boomers gave us ideas that helped plan our Budapest stay.
When the Roaming Boomers are handling my trip, I relax and know that all will be taken care of. They take care of everything and if I have questions, (which I usually bombard them with) they get back with me immediately and answer or resolve the quandary. If you are like me, who does not enjoy researching best flight deals, best places to see, places to eat, hotels, transfers to the airport, etc, then Dave and Carol are your answer. You just tell them where and when and they’ll do the rest.
Richard and Pauline
David and Carol did a great job in setting up the trip for us. We knew we wanted to see as many of the National Parks in the western United States, and wanted to do it in one trip. They helped guide us to the right trip, and then handled all of the details for us.
Tim and Julie
Went on our first trip to Italy in May 2019. Roaming Boomers were recommended to us by friends. Carol was great to work with. She listened to what we were looking for in our trip and made her own suggestions then customized the Italian vacation of a lifetime. Every detail came off exactly as planned, taking all the stress out of the trip so we could just enjoy the experience. When we had guides, they were locals and were excellent. They hand pick the local guides based on past feedback. All transfers went off without a hitch. Carol works with an Italian travel agent in Italy which we could contact if we had problems or questions (we had none). The local agent also made restaurant recommendations and reservations at our request for dinner at each location. The restaurants were fantastic. We never had to worry about where we would eat. They were always expecting us and we were usually given a prime seating location. The hotels were boutique hotels we would never have found on our own.
I would highly recommend Roaming Boomers if you are planning a trip to Italy. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a special experience. We will definitely use them again.
Gary and Marge
I would give Roaming Boomers a big fat 5 stars. I don’t think there was a problem that we encountered during the whole trip. We will use Boomers again.
Jim and Maria
Roaming Boomers were excellent in all contacts, always giving answers and help, whether by phone or several follow-up emails. All staff very helpful.
David and Sharyn
We feel that Roaming Boomers went above and beyond to make sure our vacation went smoothly and without a hitch. Would not hesitate to refer others.
Mimi and Stanley
The Roaming Boomers Travel Service is extremely efficient in booking a trip. Every question and concern I had was handled and resolved immediately by Carol. They made it effortless for us and also peace of mind about the trip was as good as it gets.
Doug and Debra
Our recent trip to Greece was very enjoyable! Everything was like clockwork and the tours, drivers, and accommodations all were top-notch. Definitely will use Roaming Boomers for future International travel plans.
Georgia and Larry
Roaming Boomers Travel Service is where they will help you plan a dream vacation wherever you desire in travels. Friendly, knowledgable and ready to help you in planning your trip. I recommend them completely.
Tom and Nancy
Roaming Boomers was brought to our attention by friends who had already booked a Viking River Cruise using their services. We were unsure about what level room to book, never having done a river cruise. I have to say that Dave really knows his stuff, and he steered us to the absolutely right stateroom! We loved our balcony, ship level, and even position down the hall – all of which was recommended by Dave.
Cathy and Rich
Dave and Carol are great! They were working with us every step of the way to ensure the trip went off without a hitch. Never complained no matter how many emails we sent them!!!! They always had good advice, insight, and experience to share with us. We would highly recommend them to anyone getting ready to travel anywhere!!!
Kevin and Cheri
Being first-time cruisers/overseas travelers we had a lot of worries prior to our Danube river trip. Every travel detail was arraigned and seamless. We will be fearless in future travels with Roaming Boomers Travel! Thanks, Carol, Dave and staff for a wonderful experience!
Travel planning was painless. Roaming Boomers was very on top of all the details.
Kathleen and Ron
We had a very smooth and enjoyable experience planning our Baltic Viking cruise. Booked less than three months before so we quickly planned the excursions that we were going to take. Roaming Boomers was very helpful in answering our questions.
Our trips planned by Roaming Boomers are always wonderful and Carol resolves unexpected issues with perseverance and good spirit. She listens and figures out how to accommodate our diverse group, which is usually 15 or 20 friends in their seventies. BRAVO!
Sue and Howard
We are so grateful we found you! Every single bit of advice was spot on. We listened to other travelers complaining about the fact that their expensive room with a balcony was a waste due to all the ships parked near them and smiled smugly. And the money people spent on travel insurance through Viking was so much more than we spent with you, it was crazy. We recommended you to all the new friends we made on the ship. We saved our $$ for extra tours instead! Thanks so much for our ship credit. We spent it of course!!! We can’t wait to do another cruise and of course, you will be our first stop: the money we saved on this cruise was so worth it. You were so responsive especially when we were getting ready to leave and had all those last minute questions: you answered us right away. Our flights were incredibly easy too…we found this to be such an easy experience, and we learned a lot, got to relax when we wanted and to be active when we wanted. It was perfect. THANKS SO MUCH!
Diana and Bill
The Roaming Boomers were very easy to work with and responsive to our questions during to planning and booking process. We will look to you in the future as our travel needs evolve.
Mike and Margie
This was our second river cruise with Viking and our second experience with Roaming Boomers. Because everything was so flawless last year we just went with the flow, and once again, Dave and Carol had everything arranged to the last detail. It is not like us to be so relaxed but honestly, all the work is done for us through Roaming Boomers and we just sat back and followed the directions we got by email. Everything went as planned. No flight delays, no hiccups of any kind in getting there. Once on ship Viking takes care of everything and there again – everything was perfect. I tell people that for me – the wife and mother of my family – these River Cruises are the only vacation where I am taken care of as well as I take care of others. It really is a pretty carefree experience.
John and Connie
We found them to be most responsive, always answered any questions in a very timely manner.
Sandy and Maddy
Roaming Boomers were easy to deal with and very responsive to any questions we had.
Brenda and Randy
More than pleased is how I would sum up our experiences with Roaming Boomers. They took the time to answer all our questions and made our arrangements seamlessly. Highest praise.
Nancy and Jim
Roaming Boomers made it simple to plan our excursion on the Rhine Getaway.
Tim and Marcia
Tim and I booked a cruise with The Roaming Boomers after attending some of their informational gatherings in which an experienced travel representative presented valuable information to help us make our final decision. The Porters answered all our questions in a timely matter and gave us extensive information during the process of choosing our vacation. Tim and I chose Regent Seven Seas as our cruise line. We took a 10 day Riviera/Mediterranean Europe Cruise for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We visited may ports and took lots of excursions. Our three favorite excursions took place in Rome, Florence and Provence. The guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. First class service from the bus to the places we visited. We will have memories to last a lifetime from visiting such places as the Vatican to seeing “The David”. Service on the boat was overall very good. Our room was large and comfortable. Our cabin steward made sure we were satisfied at all times. We met many new friends and had an amazing overall experience. Another great perk from booking with the Porters was a private tour with Executive Chef Kelly in the main kitchen of the Voyager.
John and Kathleen
This was our second time to use Roaming Boomers Travel. They make everything very easy and stress-free. We did the Viking Rhine Getaway River cruise from Amsterdam to Basel. Roaming Boomers simplified the process and had answers to our questions. One of the things I really like is their rapid response to any of our queries. They really helped with our Viking Air, getting us booked on United, taking advantage of direct flights and making sure our Mileage plus accounts were used. Dave and Carol have a wealth of experience, and it really helps when choosing cabin locations, best times to travel and other tips to enhance the trip experience. They take a personal, ‘hands-on’ approach that means a lot when planning a trip. Their input was invaluable!
Carol and Anita
It was so easy to work with Roaming Boomers – they seem to be experts in the area of cruising and travel and Dave and Carol and their team was great to work with – appreciate you and your team!
Leslie and Steve
Roaming Boomers took over a Viking Ocean reservation that I had started. They took over alerting us when payments were due and letting us know when we were able to reserve excursions and restaurants. We had an extension in Venice at the end of the cruise and I requested that Roaming Boomers organize a private guide and a special itinerary while there. We spent an afternoon in a private water taxi cruising the outer islands of Murano and Burano and had an exclusive one-on-one tour of a famous glass factory. We cruised the Grand Canal and many of the small canals where tourists seldom go. The next day we spent four hours walking the non-touristy neighborhoods of Venice where we stopped a couple of times for light meals and cool glasses of wine in local bars. Our guide for both days was excellent and we enjoyed her company as well as her knowledge of the city.
Mike and Margaret
Carol & David and their very efficient assistant Joan did a wonderful job planning & executing our trip. We appreciate their timely reminders to keep us on track & ensure we didn’t miss any important deadlines. We also love that they keep us posted on flash sales. Always a pleasure working with the Roaming Boomers.
Chris and Paul
Dave and Carol did an amazing job of planning our trip. They worked hard to get us the best airline rates, the best rates for travel insurance and booked fantastic hotels for a two-night stay before the river cruise and a one night stay after the river cruise. Both La Mirande in Avignon and Cour des Lodes in Lyons were five-star hotels with excellent rooms and restaurants. They also got us shipboard credits which we of course used for an extra special bottle of wine and a couple of additional shore excursions.
Janie and Al
Roaming Boomers Travel has been a delight to work with and always nearby to answer questions. They left no details to wonder about and in all the years that I have traveled, this was the easiest arrangements to prepare for something we both had on our bucket list.
Sue and Dennis
Our trip to Israel, Egypt and Jordan was wonderful. I had been wanting to go for many years and you helped make my dream a reality.
Doug and Ruth
We enjoyed working with David & Carol, and their various assistants. They kept us informed as things progressed in the months and days leading up to our trip.
Heather and David
Carol Porter was very helpful in planning a ski trip to Zermatt, Switzerland for my husband and myself, prior to a Viking River cruise that we were also embarking upon. She worked with Bucher Travel, a travel company in Switzerland, to make sure that all our needs were met upon arriving in Zurich. It was a comfort knowing that this trip was being handled by experts who knew just what we would need to make the trip fulfill all our requirements, and take the worry off our shoulders in the planning process.
Curtis and Kristin
Wonderful job by Roaming Boomers helping us plan our Viking River Cruise. Looking forward to another River Cruise as this experience was great.
Alton and Lisa
This year my wife and I took the Danube Waltz Tour aboard the Viking Vili. Roaming Boomers provided all of the necessary pre-planning travel and administrative arrangement for our tour. All of the arrangements went smoothly with the exception of our return flight and lost baggage, which Roaming Boomers cannot control. Carol has always taken the time to assist us for two years running in arranging our Viking river Cruises in Europe.
Steve and Linda
Everything went smooth as usual! Thank you for all your help!
Paul and Sheila
Our travel plans were made quickly and with very detailed information. We were kept informed of changes made by the airline. I don’t usually use a travel agent but so very glad we did for this great European trip. Thank you to all the Roaming Boomers staff!
Fabulous trip…well organized and executed with super guides. I will use Roaming Boomers Travel again and again.
Tom and Pamela
Our trip planning was definitely “smooth sailing”. Carol and David worked with us on a 45-day excursion from Dubai, UAE to Capetown, South Africa with a 5-day extension for a safari. We can not say enough about the way the trip was planned and executed. Arrived 5 days early in Dubai and discovered Dubai and Abu Dabi with a private guide. What an adventure! Well worth it to have the extra days before boarding Oceania Cruise ship Nautica. The ship was very nice, a little dated but I understand Oceania Cruises is in the process of updating their ships. (Looking forward to sailing with them again!). What the ship lacked in updating, the crew, food, and entertainment made up for. Because this was a smaller ship the entertainment was not over the top. We were able to actually meet the performers and get to know a little about them. They were excellent in their production and performance. Very fun to watch and be a part of their shows. The excursions were different than I thought they would be. My expectations were a little too high with what we were able to see. I must say however that all of our time in the different cities was eye-opening and the people of countries we visited were so very kind and welcoming. So very glad we had this opportunity to travel to this part of the world. With all of that said, I have to say the safari was the highlight of the trip. Being an animal and nature lover I can not think of a better way to discover the wonders of Africa.
I could go on and on about the wonderful experiences we had on this holiday! Just to close, know you are in good hands with The Roaming Boomers!
David and Kate
As usual, our trip was planned flawlessly. David and Carol are easy to work with and very intuitive. We did have a family issue that made us cut our trip short. They were there every step of the way to make the situation much easier.
Mark and Kim
My trips planned by the Roaming Boomers (aka Carol and Dave) never disappoint! All I need to do is to tell them what kind of experience I want and what I’d like to see/do, and they take care of all the details! Our recent trip on a 2-week cruise of the Lesser Antilles was no exception! They suggested a small ship (Windstar fleet) and took care of all the details from there once we chose the destinations we wanted. There is no other way to plan a vacation than to have the experience and connections that Dave and Carol offer!
Olga and Jack
Thanks to the assistance of Carol and David Porter with Roaming Boomers Travel Services and their travel partner, Made for Spain and Portugal, we had a wonderful and memorable experience in Barcelona, Spain. Both Roaming Boomers and Made for Spain and Portugal helped us plan four exciting pre-cruise days in Barcelona.
Joe and Cindy
Carol and David were extremely helpful throughout the process, answering questions promptly and professionally.
Julie and Bob
Dave and Carol were very helpful in planning our trip. It is a pleasure working with them.
Katherine and Ashley
We can’t thank Carol, David and their staff enough for a job well done! They took care of all the planning, answered all our questions and even managed to put a few fires out for us! Excellent service!!!
Rick and Elaine
I could not have asked for better service. Dave & Carol were very helpful and responsive.
Kendall and Dayton
Travel planing was easy, provided with luxury trip with very little effort. The Boomers are perfect for busy individuals that want a hassle free luxury vacation!
Nicholas and Glenda
Your advice and assistance was a tremendous help. We will definitely seek your help when we are ready to plan another trip.
I was impressed with the services provided by your company. The communication provided, before the cruise, was very helpful. Looking forward to using your services, in my future travels.
Bob and Chris
Excellent! Very pleased with your service. All the details were handled efficiently and when we had questions they were answered promptly.
Steve and Liz
We were emailed an offer by Roaming Boomers for a fantastic deal on a 2 week trip to China, Japan and Hong Kong with Viking Ocean Cruises. They were most helpful in telling us where to get China Visas, travel advice and great plane connections. Prior to the purchase, we had a nice telephone conversation with one of the owners, that made us feel most at ease. I tell you, Viking Ocean Cruises are the way to go! We have traveled Princess Ocean cruises 2 times, and prefer Viking.
Keith and Jo Anne
Planning experience was exceptional. Great advice, suggestions and recommendations. Constant communication and follow up in regards to details, itinerary changes, as well as deadlines. Very helpful in answering questions.
Sandy and Kathy
We have been with Carol and David for only about 7 months but they have already planned 4 trips for us. Our last Trip to Russia on Viking River cruises was Wonderful. Viking air service really made a mess of our flight schedules. Carol was tenacious in getting our schedule changed to avoid a possible missed connection. Additionally, we enjoyed being able to sleep in on our travel day home because our flight did not depart until the afternoon! It’s wonderful to have an agent who is willing to fight for your best interests!!
Karen and Robert
Another great travel experience thanks to the help of Roaming Boomers. The flights and travel arrangements went off without a hitch which certainly added to my great experience. Carol worked with the Viking flight desk to ensure that the friend from Michigan that I was traveling with and I could meet stateside before the transatlantic portion of our flight.
Excellent service — knowledgeable about Viking cruise options and general experience. Roaming Boomers was listened to and understood my travel preferences and was able to pull together a perfect package to ensure my enjoyment.
David and Marie
One of the best things about the Rooming Boomers (Carol, in particular) is how thoroughly they oversee all of the travel details apart from making reservations. After we started the trip, various changes had to be made for health reasons and Carol took care of everything with the least effort on my part. I would never think of using anyone else but Rooming Boomers for all my travel needs.
Mike and Linda
Roaming Boomers Travel Service was a pleasure to deal with. I appreciated the way they shared their knowledge of the various river cruise lines and helped us tailor our travel wants and needs to the right cruise line. They made several recommendations concerning air travel and insurance which were very timely and helpful. I could go on and on but I think I would best describe our experience as feeling like we had a knowledgeable and caring partner who was looking out for us. I would recommend their services to anyone who would like some help in arranging international travel and I plan to use them in the future.
Brad and Julie
We have been using The Roaming Boomers now for a couple of years. My wife and I are also baby boomers and have been enjoying travel more and more lately. I stumbled onto Dave and Carol’s website a year or two back looking for some information. I signed up for their newsletter and things took off from there. We enjoy the personalization that Carol & David offer. We have spoken with them on the phone on several occasions and they have always been available. We never feel like a number. As our needs arise so will our continued relationship with The Roaming Boomers. I highly recommend their advice and services.
I called Roaming Boomers after randomly running across their website while researching last minute cruises. Initially I was interested in taking a river cruise and David started helping me narrow down my choices. I later switched gears and decided on an ocean cruise to the Mediterranean. Carol took over at that point and got us booked on a Celebrity cruise with a great room. Both David and Carol are a wealth of information regarding any form of travel.
Stuart and Jill
We learned about your services from our travel companions. Not sure how they found you. We thoroughly enjoyed the planning process with you. Took out the worries and felt like answers were only an email away. You helped us book some early flights to Budapest on our own and we appreciated that. Already recommended you to a friend.
Jeanie and Jeffrey
Great Service! We have done quite a bit of traveling and I have always done the planning – coordination of hotels, sites, train/plane/car travel. This is the first time we have used a travel agent. Our phone calls were returned quickly and our questions answered. Great Job!
Mike and Margaret
The Roaming Boomers provide great service. They are very responsive to any questions and requests and never seem to get upset with me when I am being a muttonhead. Carol has gone the extra mile in helping with changes and keeping us informed. They’ve booked an ocean cruise, riverboat cruise and now a land tour, always performing flawlessly. They are our agents of choice and highly recommended.
Stan and Roseanne
Dave and Carol, Thank you both very much for your help, advise and timely reminders to keep us on track with our Viking River Boat trip. This being our first trip to Europe, we were a bit anxious as to what to expect. Your professionalism and personal hands-on approach made us feel at ease. Again, Thank You.
Barry and Linda
Planning was perfect and there were no issues, surprises, and other challenges. Questions were answered quickly and accurately. First rate.
Howard and Gayle
The Roaming Boomers were very responsive in both planning this trip and answering some last minute questions, even when they were traveling themselves.
Lorrie and Craig
It was a pleasure working with Carol and David to plan our river cruise. My questions (there were many!) were always answered in a timely fashion. They were both so helpful in the decision making and then the planning of our vacation. Their expertise made me confident that we were making the best decisions and would have an awesome experience. Their partners in booking airlines were also easy to work with.
Maureen and Ed
This was our first time working with Roaming Boomers and it was a delightful experience. They helped us with all of the planning for our first ever cruise, answered our not always coherent questions, and took care of managing our payments to AmaWaterways. Additionally, they added even more value to our special trip by providing us with a unique excursion at no charge (and it fell on my birthday making it even more wonderful), and surprised us with an onboard credit to use. You can’t ask for more than that!!! All we had to do was pack our clothes and go – the best part.
Barth and Barb
Planning this trip with David and Carol could not have been easier. Thank you for your wonderful planning, frequent communications, and ease of contact for any questions we had.
Chuck and Lai
We’ve used other travel services in the past and thought we were happy with them. We’ve all had those types of services and this time we went looking for something more personal. We found it with the Roaming Boomers. They answered every question we posed and then some. All travel arrangements were handled very professionally. We’ll be back…thanks.
Phylis and Ray
Thank you for helping us plan one of our best trips ever!! The Viking Cruise was outstanding with excellent service and food. We really enjoyed every included walking tour and a few add-on excursions. You guided us along the way, answering all of our concerns and questions. Oscar was very helpful in making the airline arrangements.
Harvey and Zhanna
Our travel in Germany was quite complicated. It required a number of specifics times and many train connections as well as a river cruise. Roaming Boomers was superb at every step of the preparations. And they made it all very easy for us. All we had to do was to tell them what and when and then everything was accomplished. The forms and tickets and the information were sent to us in excellent and clear detail so all we had to do was follow it.
Steve and Jackee
Dave and Carol were able to provide us with a great travel experience on short notice! Very efficient and trustworthy.
Dan and Brenda
I contacted Dave and Carol Porter when the Viking website showed my desired itinerary, travel dates, and accommodation level fully booked. They were able to quickly find what I was looking for, and for the same price advertised by Viking. Interactions with them were consistently warm, professional, and efficient. I’m glad I reached out.
Joe and Debbie
As usual, the Roaming Boomers travel agency provided top rate service in planning our trip. Every detail was taken care of and the hotel recommendations were wonderful.
Dave and Carol
We had never gone on either a river or an ocean cruise and knew little about how to arrange one. We wanted to do a cruise for our 40th anniversary and I did some online research to find something we’d both enjoy. We decided to do a Viking ocean cruise up the Norwegian coast from Bergen across to the Shetlands, Orkneys, Scotland, an ending in London during the summer solstice. In addition to the cruise, we wanted to spend some time in Stockholm before the cruise with our son and our grandkids. I found it daunting to do this directly through Viking. I did research on travel agencies, found the Roaming Boomers website and decided to contact them and ask about how to arrange such a trip. They were extremely helpful and before I knew it, everything was arranged. There were some initial problems with Viking Travel and our flight arrangements, but Dave and Carol sorted those our quickly for us. Finally, they helped me understand the process of booking our excursions and special restaurant dining reservations with Viking, and all of those last minute details that (as novice cruisers) we needed to take care of. We would definitely recommend them to anyone needing help with their travel planning.
Steve and Linda
Overall we had a great experience with Roaming Boomers. David and Carol were always available to help with questions and last minute details. Their experience is a great asset in the planning of any trip.
Heather and David
It was a pleasure dealing with Carol and David Porter when planning our recent trip to Paris and the Viking River Cruise on the Rhone in France. I usually do my travel arrangements myself but found I was too busy lately. They took the pressure off me to make sure all deadlines were met and sent updates as necessary. I really appreciated their attention to detail and they are already working on our next travel experience for next year!
Mike and Margie
Dave and Carol – you are probably acutely aware that we were cruise novices and would never have taken this trip without your “hands on” encouragement and assistance. You were able to find us a first class stateroom on a last minute reservation and held our hands through the whole process of making the arrangements for that cruise and extensions. You are professionals with such a personal touch. for us it meant that we added a life experience to our repertoire that will change the course of our Golden Years! One of us was terrified of what the motion of the boat would do to her equilibrium. You got that and did so much to quell that fear. I almost called you from the boat to report that I did fine. It was a big deal to me and I am now available to serve as a counselor should you need to encourage anyone else with that fear. Thank you thank you thank you.
Larry and Suzanne
David and Carol were very helpful in making this the best cruise we’ve ever been on. Prompt and correct responses to all our questions made the Viking River Cruise the highlight of our 50th anniversary year. Thanks, Roaming Boomers.
Shelly and Alberto
Today’s travel experiences are anxiety prone, to say the least …Carol’s lovely and caring voice on the other end of the phone, answering all of my questions, was reassuring that all would be OK!! And it was!!
Ed and Pat
From the first introduction cocktail party to the actual trip, we were pleased with the whole process. Roaming Boomers Travel was positive and any questions were quickly answered.
Susan and Randy
Carol and David were very pleasant to work with and provided professional and experienced advice. I felt much better knowing they were working with me to select and plan our river cruise. Big trips take careful consideration and they eased this process. I highly recommend The Roaming Boomers.
Anna and Richard
Roaming Boomers was very responsive to my questions and was helpful in deciding which cruise line to take.
Roaming Boomers was a delight to work with. They helped with booking the cruise and also making the flight reservations. Will use them again for future travel.
Laurie and Jim
We appreciated your help. Having you get our flight reservation well ahead may just have been why we had some better connections than some other travelers coming off the cruise. Thank you!
Harlen and Judy
Our travel planning experience was easy and efficient. Everything went well, and we are very satisfied! Thank you for all of your help!
Margaret and Michael
Carol & Dave are a great team. They responded quickly and professionally to our travel request, booking a great cabin. I really liked that they followed up with reminders as the sail date approached. We’ve already booked more trips through them and recommend them highly.
Mark and Kim
The Porters ALWAYS deliver! I tell them the type of experience we are looking for and they plan it like no other! The latest trip to Down Under was with our 18-year-old grandson so we wanted something adventurous, but doable for two sixty-somethings to enjoy as well. 😉 From the Sydney Bridge Climb to the Aboriginal rainforest adventure, we were not disappointed. They were adventurous enough without being too hard on us so all three of us enjoyed each tour! Thanks again for helping us to create lasting memories, Dave and Carol!
Wendy and Perry
As always, working with Roaming Boomers was a pleasure! The travel planning is very easy with Carol and Dave and we are always confident that everything is done correctly and our trip will be highly enjoyable.
Chuck and Cindy
This is our first trip with Roaming Boomers and it was pain-free. Dave and Carol set everything up and answered any questions we had. I would book with them again.
Mimi and Paul
We had never taken a cruise before. And we had never vacationed for two weeks. So, we were taking a leap of faith in booking Viking Cruise Line’s Viking Homeland Cruise. But it was tremendous. Our best vacation ever. And Dave & Carol were there every step of the way to answer our questions and guide our pre-trip preparations.
Jack and Sandy
We recently returned from a Rhine River cruise on the Viking EIR. The booking went very smoothly thanks to Carol and David our third time using their services. We requested an upgrade in seats to bulkhead on our fight and they did everything possible to secure them for us. Plus we were given extra ship credit as well.
Rhesa and Andy
We used Dave and Carol to book our Rhine River Cruise through Viking River Cruises. They were able to secure the dates, cabins, and flights with Viking. Dave secured our travel insurance through an outside company that was considerably cheaper but with the same quality of security that Viking was offering. They were easy to work with and offered up lots of advice and answered our many questions prior to the trip.
Roaming Boomers helped us choose our first River Cruise in Europe. We appreciated their knowledge of various cruise lines and found their info accurate once we did experience the cruise. It was overwhelming to try and choose what river, and what cruise line to use when my sister and I decided to explore Europe. Then I ran across Roaming Boomers online, and several phone calls helped us make some basic decisions.
David and Judy
Working with David and Carol has been a pleasure. It was as easy as a phone call after which they booked with the river cruise company even adding perks such as prepaid gratuities and drink vouchers. They are well versed in travel insurance and can provide an option for that if you need. Any questions on the upcoming trip can be easily asked by email or phone call. They will even answer from a trip to NYC. Maybe they work a bit too hard! We love working with them and this will not be our last time.
Bob and Bonnie
We can’t say enough good things about working with The Roaming Boomers Travel agency. The help that Dave and Carol gave to us before and during our Paris to Normandy back to Paris Riverboat Cruise was invaluable. They answered our email questions immediately and even watched out for our well being ahead of the trip when we inadvertently forgot to provide some information to Avalon riverboat company. They also were the most gracious and generous hosts during our cruise. They are now friends whom we will most assuredly use the next time we decide to go on an adventure!
You guys are the best! Everything was so well-planned and efficiently executed….there was not one single bump on our journey. I will recommend you to everyone I know who wish to plan a trip, but most of the people I know who travel were on this trip of 16 people and experienced the same level of satisfaction that I did!!!!
Jim and Shirley
Paris to Normandy on the Avalon was ” a dream come true” trip. We loved the walking tour of Paris that was lined up for us before the river cruise started; the guide was exceptional in his knowledge and humor. The Avalon river cruise ship was comfortable with an outstanding cruise director and staff; we especially enjoyed the stops along the way, particularly Giverny., Monet’s Gardens. The tours that were scheduled were given by very qualified guides. We appreciate how seamless the Porters made this trip for us with our arrival, hotel accommodations, and transportation to and from the port where the cruise ship was docked. We have already recommended this wonderful trip to friends and family.
Alton and Lisa
The trip on Viking River Cruise down the Rhine was more than we expected. We could not have been treated nicer. Carol and Dave did a wonderful job in coordinating our entire travel arrangements both land and air. I certainly intend to use them again on our next cruise down the Danube in March 2019. The trip for us was special in that it was our 25th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival at the ship, we found a nice bottle of champagne awaiting us. What a thoughtful surprise. That’s what makes Roaming Boomers stand out amongst others. Thank you, Dave and Carol, once again.
Julie and Robert
Dave and Carol at Roaming Boomers were very helpful in all aspects of planning our trip! It’s nice to know there is someone to handle the dirty work!! Thank you, Dave and Carol!
Jan and Richard
Excellent every step from the first inquiring phone call we made through arriving home. Quick accurate responses. Helped particularly with negotiating with Viking where needed.
David and Kate
As always it was seamless. I always use that word to describe Roaming Boomers, but it is an accurate description. Everything is put into a concise and organized folder.
Mark and Jan
The planning phase could not have been easier. We had never been to Hawaii, so we relied on Dave & Carol to create our island itinerary. Trying to arrange this ourselves would have been stressful. There are just too many choices – and having the input from people who have tried the accommodations and experienced the recommended activities first hand avoids a lot of potentially expensive mistakes.
Pat and Bill
As always everything was planned perfectly. Shipboard credit and prepaid gratuities were very helpful in our planning.
Robert and Sara
The planning experience was perfect! A call was all it took. We shared our destination and it was done in a matter of minutes. Easy! I would give them a top-notch rating and have shared their travel service with others.
Sabrina and Evan
Roaming Boomers was seamless and worry-free. They provided us with plenty of options regarding our preference for Hawaii with detailed descriptions regarding the culture/scene on each of the islands. It helped us determine Maui as our destination based on the thorough information regarding that island’s culture and activities.They have personal travel experience, which is always extremely helpful and even provided us with awesome perks at the hotel we stayed. I had an outstanding honeymoon, and Roaming Boomers were extremely helpful with researching pandemics for us through CDC website prior to choosing our final destination, as we did initially have other destination ideas but informed us of potential Zika exposure. I cannot express enough how well they treated us. It was as if they were family and encouraged us to be honest about describing our dream destination and expectations.
Debbie and Lane
Using a great travel advisor like Roaming Boomers is always a good idea and they do all our travel planning. The additional benefit is assistance when problems arise. We were coming back from Peru and were booked through Miami when Irma was approaching. Carol and Dave stepped in and seamlessly arranged a return through Dallas.
George and Barbara
Both Carol and Dave were very helpful in planning our Viking River Cruise. They provided us with good advice during the planning stage. Carol helped us out when we had some issues both before our departure and during the trip. She was there for us every step of the way. Very reliable!!
Ken and Diane
Dave and Carol Porter, owners of Roaming Boomers Travel Services, did a great job for us. They handled the arrangements for the trip very well and were very responsive when we had questions. We’re glad we decided to work through Dave & Carol rather than deal with Viking directly. We highly recommend them and would not hesitate to utilize their services in the future.
Del and Beti Ann
In this case, your input was minimal, as we had already selected our tour. However, your involvement following, including air arrangements, selection of seats, and keeping everything on track was just perfect! We felt reassured that you were involved
Andy and Lucille
I couldn’t ask for a better planning experience. We realized in late July that there was an eclipse for 8/21. We didn’t have much hope for finding anything along the path of the eclipse that was close to the event, but David and Carol found us something in Charleston, SC right away. And it wasn’t that we had to “settle” for a place to stay. We were booked into a very nice hotel in downtown Charleston with a dinner the night before the eclipse with a local college professor who explained what was happening and why, and with a private viewing area to watch the next day. All of this with no more effort on our part than getting in touch with Roaming Boomers and letting them do what they do best!
Jackie and Larry
David and Carol helped us plan a delightful Viking River cruise on the Danube River from Prague to Budapest. We did an extension at both the beginning and end of the trip. They are professional and experienced travel consultants.
Dan and Leslie
We were excited to see a special sale promoted by Roaming Boomers in their newsletter. We appreciate the way Dave and Carol are so quick to let everyone know about the specials that are available – since we are always looking for a good deal! They were quick to return calls and to answer all our questions. Everything went so smoothly, and we returned home very happy!
Carol and Larry
All went well…British Air was great, luggage arrived as planned, connection to Paris worked. All in all, we were pleased with the air part. The Viking Rolf was very nice…we totally enjoyed the entire experience. The staff was exemplary.
Andre (Chocolatine) was absolutely superb & well worth the cost. Our day with him was simply perfect. Such a nice young man who was so knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him again. Thanks to Carol Porter for all the planning & answering of my countless questions & concerns! I did not need to worry!
William and Patricia
As always Carol and Dave did a great job arranging everything for our trip to France. I never worry when planning a trip with them.
Michael and Barbara
Planning for this trip was accomplished with little effort on our part. Carol and Dave Porter recommended the venues and arranged for transportation to and from Paris and transfers there making it effortless for our family of seven. They found a convenient delightful hotel during our brief stay in Paris before beginning the river cruise.
Florence and Thad
We were very pleased with the knowledge and information that Carol and David provided to help guide our decisions. We have not worked with a travel agent before so we were not exactly sure what to expect.
Gio and Melissa
Thank you. The service we’ve received throughout this whole trip has been exceptional. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is and how much I appreciate the extra mile(S!) you have gone to make this trip so enjoyable for us. Thank you again for all that you have done. Bon Jour!
David and Marie
Carol and David did a fantastic job. David obtained travel insurance at a very competitive rate and with a favorable pre-existing condition waiver provision that is especially important to me. Carol arranged for private tours in Copenhagen and Stockholm with guides that were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. She also arranged our private pre and post cruise accommodations in wonderful hotels. The trip was a Baltic cruise on Le Boreal, a high-end small ship. The ship is so nice it would have been a great experience even if we went nowhere. The guest speakers were mostly interesting. It’s hard to pick a highlight with so many great cities, palaces, museums, etc. But our favorite was Stockholm, which may be the most beautiful city we have experienced – but be sure to go in the summer. I would highly recommend the entire trip. Everything was flawless.
Lloyd and Pat
Carol and Dave’s assistance allowed us to get the best price and perks on our Danube River Cruise. In fact, Carol was able to save us additional money after our original booking. When we ran into confusion with our flight, Carol also was there for us and our travels continued as planned. Carol also suggested we extend our stay in Budapest at the end of our cruise. We did just that and enjoyed our stay immensely. So many sights to see. The ship, dining, and views were amazing. We experienced outstanding service while on our cruise. What a friendly crew. This was a special way to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Thanks to The Roaming Boomers for assisting us with our Danube River Cruise. We will be using their services in the future and highly recommend them to others.
Wendy and Perry
This is the second time that Carol and Dave took care of our vacation needs. We left it in their hands and they took care of all the details. We told her our wants and needs and then she came back with options for us. It was very simple. Thanks so much.
Dale and Sherry
We inquired through AMA Waterways about a Rhine River Cruise and were connected with the Roaming Boomers to assist us in the planning and gathering information on the alternatives. Clearly, Dave and Carol Porter have valuable experience in answering every possible question and are quick, if not immediate, on getting answers and providing pertinent information. We will certainly contact them in the future when booking the next River Cruise.
Paula and Len
Carol and David provided us with very good service: prompt, informative and personal. We received a lower price than Viking offered, and we didn’t have to do any of the work! In addition, RB offered additional onboard perks. It took us a long time to decide to go and Carol & David checked in with us periodically without bugging us. They continued to answer our questions and offered encouragement. We recommended RB to quite a few other cruisers.
Debbie and Lane
We told Dave and Carol the experience we wanted and as usual, they delivered.They always make our travels easy and rewarding.
Mark and Kim
Most folks dream of traveling to places they’ve always read about, but where to start? That’s the beauty of working with Carol and Dave, our Roaming Boomers! Tell them where you want to go, what you’d like to experience and leave the details of making the magic happen for you to them! This is the fourth time they have scheduled amazing travels for us and we would never leave home without having them arrange the details for us! Thanks once again.
Ray and Rhoda
The Viking River Cruise from St. Petersburg to Moscow was outstanding. It is a little cold at this time of the year (early May), but a great time was had by everyone. The Boomers were helpful in assisting with Viking to reserve specified cabins and plane reservations and seats. We are looking forward to using their help again.
Peter and Janie
My experience with the Roaming Boomers was excellent. Every detail was expected and planned out. We had a wonderful time with no worries or snags. We would highly recommend the Boomers to take care of all of your travel needs.
Destination: Maui for one week in May. Carol and Dave were so helpful in helping me create my itinerary and holding my hand while making the plans for the dream vacation of my life! Thank-you Carol and Dave!
Ted and Caroline
We’ve been blessed by being able to take many cruises. Our first with Crystal and The Roaming Boomers could not have been better. From Dave and Carol’s expert arrangements to Crystal’s beautiful ship (Serenity) to food/drink/accommodations/
Boomers are the Bomb! Dave and Carol are the dynamic duo! I have used them for two out of country trips, Greece and Thailand, and everything went perfect! They are true professionals. I would recommend to anyone. It can be a bit scary traveling abroad, everything is top notch and every detail is perfect! Love them!!!
Jeff & Lisa
We had a fantastic trip. All of our arrangements we well planned, communicated and delivered without a flaw. We’re very pleased with the quality and value of our trip and look forward to our next opportunity to book another trip with Dave and Carol. The Viking cruise was a fantastic experience. The accommodations and service exceeded our expectations. Great value and opportunity to enjoy hassle free travel. We also had a great time in Lake Como. Ya’ll have some serious clout as we received a nice upgrade and added benefits at the hotel. Lisa was a true princess for a few days !! We really appreciate all your help.
David and Kate
On our trip to New Zealand and Australia. David and Carol made all the arrangements and reservations. Carol made sure to ask me what was important to us and crafted a personalized itinerary for our trip. Everything was printed out and very organized. Have used them previously and would not hesitate to do so in the future.
Gary and Carla
Recently came across these folks and just completed another trip booked with Dave and Carol. Always very responsive. Just did our first cruise with Viking Ocean. After maybe a dozen cruises, this was easily the best ever.
David and Carol Porter are true professionals. They go above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. Carol negotiated the best rate for a cruise for me and when the trip was interrupted due to a mechanical failure of the ship Carol was available and quickly and efficiently made arrangements to get me back home. I had purchased trip insurance from David, and my questions were answered promptly and the documentation I needed was sent to me immediately by Carol. Although we had an unfortunate mechanical problem with the ship, Carol and David made everything OK again, by providing outstanding customer service. I live in Alabama and they are in Arizona, however, their service was flawless as though they were right next door.
Perry and Wendy
Our travel planning experience with Roaming Boomers Travel Services was excellent! From the moment we spoke with Dave about planning a vacation through the final plans, everything was done meticulously and the communication was outstanding. Carol made the whole process so easy and stress-free. Whether we communicated by email or phone she was always there to help us with our planning. We are ready to plan our next vacation and we would never have any one else help us but Carol and Dave of Roaming Boomers Travel Services!
Dayton and Kendall
We love working with Dave and Carol. Great attention to detail, knowledgeable, honest and helpful…always. This was our 3rd major trip with them.
David & Kate
We had the time of our lives. David and Carol Porter made everything much easier. Being somewhat new to international travel, we did not know what to do or whom contact for tours, hotels and transfers. David and Carol made our trip much less stressful. It was seamless. They have a travel company that can do almost anything in planning a great travel experience.
Roaming Boomers were fantastic. Right from the start Carol and Dave were available to answer any questions we had and helped us with any concerns we had about our upcoming trip. They shared advice, shared experiences with what they had done in the past and were willing to do whatever we needed to customize our trip. They set up a phone conference call with their Italian associate for a travel interview with us so that they could proceed In planning the trip that we wanted. It was truly a positive experience.
Kay and Ed
From the moment we chose our Asian cruise, Carol monitored the progress of our air bookings, our excursion choices, our required visas and immunizations, and several requests that deviated from the cruise offering. We used their services again for a recent land tour of Scandinavia. Carol and David as a team cover the full breadth and depth of the travel industry. Their service is always personal and very timely.
Phyllis and Ray
Roaming Boomers Travel Services helped us plan, coordinate and execute our first trip to Europe. Along the way, they answered all of our questions by e-mail or phone promptly and putting our minds at ease where necessary. We will definitely use their services again and recommend them to our friends.
Nuccio and Patricia
Dave and Carol were wonderful to work with. They made booking our river cruise with Viking super easy. We didn’t have to worry about anything.

I’ve been following The Roaming Boomers for some time now and have wanted them to take care of a trip for a long time! A river cruise with UniWorld popped up months ago and we jumped on it. Carol and Dave arranged for everything including a few days in Basel before the cruise. It was wonderful to have them take care of the trip. We arrived in Basel on my birthday and they had arranged for a beautiful desert to be delivered to our room. Yummy! Once aboard the ship, we had a lovely box of chocolates from them. Another yum!! For years, my husband has made all travel arrangements for us and he really enjoyed the break from that chore. Carol and Dave did a great job and we were both thrilled with their service. Thank you so much!

The Roaming Boomers handled every travel detail for us for our honeymoon. After a year of wedding planning it was wonderful to be able to be whisked away on an adventure without the stress of planning. They are incredibly knowledgeable and I am very grateful for the options and suggestions that they were able to provide us. I can’t wait for our next adventure with the Roaming Boomers! Thank you!
Jim and Joan
It was all good!! Everything went off without a hitch. Drivers and guide were always on time, courteous, informative and fun to be with. Would never have been able to experience all that we did had we tried to do it ourselves. Awesome time in Paris. Thanks Roaming Boomers!
Chad, Katie, and 2 Children
The travel planning experience was second to none. The Porters took the time to listen to what each of our family member’s interests were and compiled a dream vacation for all of us. The itinerary was planned down the most minute detail. This was a true vacation. The typical stress of trying to decide where to go and what to do, where to eat and which attraction to go to was nonexistent. We got to enjoy the best parts of Paris and London with hand picked guides that were truly professional yet felt like life-long friends at the end of our journey. All in all- BEST TRIP EVER !
Candee and Dave
Our cousins in Arizona, who have gotten to know Carol and David, hooked us up with them when we told them we were going to Portugal. While our actual river cruise was already booked, we were going to have some free time in Lisbon and needed help to figure out what to do. Carol and David were terrific in filling in this time!!!! Carol and David put together two, 1 day private excursions around greater Lisbon. They were wonderful!!! They also recommended 3 Great restaurants for us and again they were all Terrific!!! We would highly recommend Carol and David for any Travel plans you may have in mind!!
Nicholas & Angie
Our experience with Roaming Boomers Travel was excellent!! Our trip was 2 years in the making and wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Dave and Carol. We had to accommodate infants, singles, young married couples with kids, grandparents with mobility limitations – so many factors that made planning difficult; making this family trip happen could not have been accomplished without their help!
Brent and Kass
This was our first Viking Cruise. I found Dave and Carol thru the internet and decided to take a chance and call them. It really paid off. They took care of everything from start to finish. We experienced a problem with our airline tickets that the airline was unable to resolve over the phone. Carol got it fixed within 10 minutes and we were on our way. Carol also discussed the details on a conference call with us just before we left. We felt much more confident with our travel to Budapest after that. These folks know what they are doing!
Catherine and Arland
Dave and Carol with Roaming Boomers Travel are great Travel Agents. They fielded our many questions as we embarked on our first Viking River Cruise (The Romantic Danube). I will definitely recommend their services to family and friends.
Benn & Kathleen
We just experienced another fabulous cruise organized IN DETAIL by the Roaming Boomers. We spent 2 weeks on the luxurious Seabourn Quest on the Fjords of Norway. Dave and Carol did not arrange the 70-75 degree weather; that was about all they did not organize. We had great excursions and transfers. We even had a 2 hour guided tour between arrival of our flight to Copenhagen and embarkation on the ship!!! Every little detail was accounted for and verified by the RB team. They frequently checked on our status prior and after disembarkation. They under promised and over delivered. We will continue to ask them to plan our vacations.
Chris and Kandie
We told the Roaming Boomers about our upcoming trip to Europe and they made it so easy to plan. Having never been to Europe we had a lot of questions/concerns and they put together an itinerary that met our needs perfectly. From hotels, to train travel and tours Carol did an amazing job!!!
David and Judy
Booking with Carol and Dave could not have been easier. We responded to an email notifying us of discount rates on river cruises. A phone call was all it took for them to find us a date and book us on the cruise. Luckily I mentioned we had friends that had been on these cruises which found us extra discounts with ultimately free airfare from Chicago. Dave was helpful with the insurance and completing the arrangements. We will certainly not hesitate to book through them in the future for our travel plans.
David and Lisa
Working with Carol and David was a pleasure. All of our questions / concerns were dealt with immediately. We enjoyed the experience of their company and would highly recommend. They made our trip to Australia a once in a lifetime trip that we will never forget. It has been my fathers dream to travel to Australia, he told me this was better than he could have imagined, everything was planned perfectly, our best trip. The Roaming Boomers are without a doubt a top notch service that caters to detail and want their customers to enjoy traveling as much as they do. Thank you for our incredible family trip of a lifetime!
We had a very good experience with Roaming Boomers Travel, I had many questions, Carol and Dave answered promptly and efficiently. But most of all, they are very personable, and since I did all the calling, I would say that it was such a good customer service experience. Always took the time to either answer everything with correct info, or find out the correct answer and be back in touch with me promptly. Thank you for that – Carol and Dave.
Kristi & Colin
Working with Roaming Boomers was an excellent experience! We had never taken a trip like this before and were clueless on how to plan it. The package that was put together for us had everything we had dreamed of. We will never go on a trip like this again without using their services!
Keith and Dixie
Both of you, Carol and Dave, did a wonderful job of organizing and coordinating our trip. It went seamless from the flight out, hotel, shuttle to the ship, boarding and departing the ship, scooter rental, wheelchair access, excursions, rental car, and finally flight back to Detroit. I would definitely use Roaming Boomers again.
David & Norma
We just returned from a marvelous Amsterdam to Budapest river cruise with Emerald Waterways.
This was our first experience booking with The Roaming Boomers, a company I serendipitously found online . I liked the impression I got of Carol and David Porter from the website: people who overcame adversity through starting this business, who loved life, who had extensive experience in travel and wanted to share it, who offered extra perks in booking with them. My impressions of Carol and David Porter now: gracious, thorough, efficient, very responsive to questions and concerns, and most of all, people who conduct their business with integrity!
Paul & Chris
Dave and Carol did a super job booking our hotel, getting us a great rate, upgrades, and hotel credits that we would not have been able to get if we had booked on our own
Albert & Doreen
We were very well pleased with the travel services provided to us by Carol & Dave Porter. They were friendly and helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had. In addition to providing competitive pricing they looked after all of our needs very well. We will certainly use them again for our cruise travel needs. After some thought and conversation we simply could not come up with any frustrations on our trip!! It was wonderful from beginning to end. Thanks so much for your help with our trip.
Larry & Carol
Thanks to Carol and Dave Porter for arranging our Tauck tour of the south…we had a grand time especially because of the Porters and their fantastic planning. They were delightful to work with throughout the planning of our tour..very helpful and responsive to our questions and decisions. We will absolutely be traveling with their help from now on!
Bob & Karen
I am at a stage in my life where I love to travel – well let me rephrase that – I love the concept of travel. I dislike the planning and organization of travel. I like nice things, I want to stay in luxury hotels, eat at great restaurants, visit the best wineries and galleries and have a relaxing holiday. The Roaming Boomers have made my travels seamless. I’ve had the opportunity to travel on a number of excursions over the last several years, and each trip has been an adventure of a lifetime. They literally do all the work! My hotel rooms have always been beautiful, the dining tends to be a wonderful culinary experience, and the activities have afforded memories to last forever.
The Roaming Boomers do all the research, planning, reservations, etc. They have traveled all over the world and have fabulous ideas of places to go and things to do. They can even provide a full itinerary of daily activities. Whether it’s a road trip or a 10 hour flight, I just need to let them know I’m open for a trip – they do the rest. I’m a control freak so it was a little difficult letting go of the planning, but Dave and Carol Porter are truly experts at travel. My vacation truly starts the minute I connect with them to start the planning process. I’m looking forward to my next trip with them, an Alaskan Cruise!
Mark & Kim
Since I was a little girl, it had been my dream to visit Italy; the birthplace of my grandparents. The task of putting a trip together was overwhelming and it never seemed to become reality until Carol Porter, of The Roaming Boomers, suggested to help me with the process. Within six months I was standing on the ground of my dreams, staying in the most elegant places on earth and enjoying private tours I didn’t think were within my budget….. all because Carol asked what I wanted out of my trip!
It was everything I wanted and so much more! Carol asked what was important for me in this trip and she took it from there, staying well within my budget! I can’t help but think I’d still be dreaming if it weren’t for Carol and her contacts and proactive research to help make this lifelong dream a memory that will last me a lifetime!
Jim & Kelly
Dave and Carol truly care about their clients and every detail of their travel experience. In today’s world having someone who cares and provides world class service is rare. When my family take our vacations, having the peace of mind that we are going to have some great memories because Dave and Carol have helped guide us to great places is a huge BONUS! Thank you for all you do for my family!
Dave and Carol planned an awesome trip for me to take my sales team on as a reward for exceeding their goals for 2015 and WOW! what a trip it was! Knowing our budget, they found the nicest all inclusive resort possible which far exceeded anyplace I have visited in the past. In budget, Five Star and no hassles….that’s why I always use The Roaming Boomers!
Jon & Anita
If you like cruising and days at sea, this is the cruise for you. Fourteen days of which six were in transit on the Caribbean Princess. Ports of call of Barcelona, Corsica, Rome, Florence, Genoa/Milan, Marseille and Provence, and Gibraltar give you the broad brush of the Western Med. David Porter (and his wife Carol) were attentive, helpful, and informative in planning this trip. I plan on using The Roaming Boomers again in the future.
Robert & Karen
I love to travel, and working with Dave and Carol Porter made it a breeze. They made all of the arrangements, leaving me the freedom to just relax and enjoy the scenery! Our hotel grounds and amenities were beautiful. Being a customer of David and Carol Porter brings perks as well, a room upgrade, breakfast buffet every morning, and even a $100.00 spa credit! It makes no sense to handle the details myself when I have these two travel advisors!
We started working with Carol Porter to plan our family’s trip to Italy in December of 2013 and didn’t travel until June of 2014. Carol worked with us to come up with our ideal itinerary and then worked directly with an Italian company that scheduled all of our tours, local transportation and most of our accommodations. Before we left, we received a detailed itinerary with information on where we’d stay, tours and travel and had paid for the large portion of our trip. Once we were off, ll we had left to do was to relax, enjoy and decide where to eat! Our trip of a lifetime was completely customized to our interests, to our family’s stamina level (our children were first-time overseas travelers) and to our budget. Highlights were: a trip to a sheep farm where raw cheese is produced by hand, a gondola ride complete with a serenade that electrified the neighborhoods we traveled through, a tour of a cathedral on top of a cathedral in Assisi, and a dreamy night among olive groves.
Bob & Karen (again)
We have just completed the trip of a lifetime, starting with a cruise in Alaska and then a 7 day journey through the Canadian Rockies. We left all arrangements, decisions, and planning to Dave and Carol Porter. They created the itinerary from start to finish, keeping in mind our preferences for a seamless relaxing vacation. All details were handled prior to our departure and everything was seamless! Our cruise was spectacular, our hotels were luxurious, our meals were all culinary delights, and our activities were exhilarating! This wasn’t the first time we used the Porters, and it won’t be the last! We’re already planning our next adventure!
Decided on a Wednesday to book a girls trip to Punta Cana leaving on the following Sunday. So, that night (Wed) I emailed The Roaming Boomers and by Thursday they had booked our trip and got us all settled! I highly recommend them; it’s evident that they are passionate about what they do and wanted to ensure that we had a fantastic, stress free, girls vacation! Thank you Dave & Carol!
Benn & Kathleen
David (aka Roaming Boomers) seems to find “deals” that I would never know existed (4 day reservation at hotel, while paying for 3) and other such deals make me WANT to use them!!!! Give them one shot and you will never do it yourself or use another Travel a Agent. Worth your investment!!!!!!
