We have used Barbara Wilks to plan our company trip for the last two years which consisted of more than 20 people. Barbara was amazing! She made great suggestions and recommendations regarding our destinations. We chose two different adult only all-inclusive resorts in Playa. Barbara kept the process organized, and I knew that she was taking care of everything. Both trips were fantastic, and we will continue to use Barbara to plan all of our future trips. She even planned my personal family vacation this year to Moon Palace which was flawless as well.
Heather is a seasoned travel professional with over 30 years of experience. For business travel, you can't afford to be at risk with online bookings and self-service travel. You need a professional that allows you to focus on your business, not your travel needs. For personal travel, you need an expert to help you avoid issues that can ruin your hard-earned vacation.
Heather has proved invaluable to our company as an experienced travel agent. She is a superb multi-tasker who manages to give personalized attention to everyone she is working with. She owns the job and leaves nothing to guesswork. Heather has been a joy to work with and knows her industry in and out.
I met Heather in 2007 and she has been a great travel resource for me. Thanks to Travel Directions, traveling throughout Asia last year was incredible and headache free. Heather did all of the legwork researching, making recommendations, and booking the multiple air connections, hotel, and car service, which made for a fantastic, worry-free experience. I highly recommend Heather and Travel Directions.l
Jim has used you as his travel agent over 30 years and I have used you for 27 years. We have booked both business and leisure travel with you. You are an outstanding travel agent. Your prompt follow-up and persistent investigation of the best deals and travel options are always appreciated. You are a very positive and warm individual and a joy to work with. We have booked over five cruises on Windstar through you and have enjoyed every one of these trips. We can always feel your smile through the phone. We look forward to many more years of using you as our travel agent.
I’ve worked with Heather for 15 years. My boss travels frequently and I always tell him that if he had to depend on me to take care of his travel arrangements, there’s no telling where he would end up! Heather makes the process so easy, taking care of travel, rental cars, and hotels, as well as taking care of any personal requests. I couldn’t do my job without her.
I am a senior executive that travels 48-50 weeks per year and have been using Barbara Wilks and the Travel Directions team for over 16 years. It is a fact that I could not do my job as effectively or efficiently without the support and the above and beyond service that I receive from her on a daily basis. She understands and balances my needs for first class uninterrupted business travel with a cost control perspective and works tirelessly to get me the most upgrades, best stand-by options, and convenient flight times. I trust her implicitly with all of our group travel for meetings and customer outings and also use her for my personal travel. Having Barbara on my team is like having our own internal company travel department for a fraction of the cost.

Barbara Wilks has served as the exclusive adviser and agent for all of my domestic and international business travel since 1990. That I have lived and worked in the New York City area since 1995, and Barbara is located in Dallas, underscores the value that I place upon her knowledge, capability, and reliability. Regardless if the situation was an unforeseeable development in Karachi or a monsoon in Hong Kong, I have always been able to communicate with Barbara directly in order for her to subsequently expedite the altering of my itinerary. For a very frequent , time pressed international business traveler, my ongoing relationship with Barbara Wilks has continually demonstrated to be an invaluable resource.
