Norma is the best. If you are going out of town on your trip, you want her in your back pocket in case something goes bad while traveling. She is on point. Knows her stuff. Returns your calls. Gives great advice and no matter what will make sure your trip if a lifetime or every day travel goes great in these difficult times for travel. She is a great investment in your trip!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting and doing business with Norma of Odyssey Travel. I had called her at first and within the first few minutes of our conversation I knew I was talking to the correct person. First of all Norma was very pleasant and personable on the phone. I told her I was going to Barcelona Paris and Rome within the next three weeks. She was so knowledgeable and knew exactly what to recommend, details on the train and what to see and do. We had such an instant rapport I jumped in my car to go to her office in Altoona to meet her. I walked in and Norma was there at her desk. She is a one woman show; owner, agent and expert in ALL areas of travel and locations. Many travel agents want to push. Norma doesn't. She asks what is important to you; recommends and tailors your trip around your needs and interests. She is unique in that she is very knowledgeable about ALL modes of travel; air, cruise, train and ALL areas Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Mexico and more. A one stop shop. And ... let's not forget it costs NOTHING to use Odyssey's services! This is the best kept secret and I've found it. With travel up and all the potential issues why not let Norma plan everything from start to finish. Her rates are even lower than what I can book! She caters to couples families and even single travelers. Treat yourself and let Norma do all the work and planning. You'll be glad you did. The only thing you have to worry about is how to have fun.

I have used Odyssey for both my personal travel arrangements and those for the missions trips from my church for over 30 years. I have always found her to be helpful, truthful and very accurate. I have chosen to use her because she cares, she takes the time to do her due diligence in every transaction. Highly recommend I have traveled to over 20 countries without a hitch by using Odyssey.
