As first time travelers to Italy, our experience was completely seamless thanks to Laurie. We were a group of 6 from very different areas of the United States. She listened attentively to our needs and made changes along the way. We would highly recommend Laurie for all your travel needs. She made out Italy trip truly memorable!
Mason Horvath is THE only travel agency I’ll be using from now on. We took a chance on them 2 years ago when we wanted to make the most of a Germany visit. We had 15 days and 4 kids to entertain (ages 7-16) plus me and my husband. They did all the planning from the private drivers to the entrance fees to all the perfect sights to see each day. We stayed an an array of hotels that each were unique but always friendly with us. We had one big hiccup with a driver but Mason Horvath jumped all over that situation and even created a new policy to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Despite that, our time was remarkable so we chose to call on them again this past year to plan a European vacation to England, Scotland, & France. Laurie handled every detail and always bounced ideas off of me to ensure she was on the right track. My hubby and I worked down to the last day before departure and admittedly did not spend much time looking at the details of our trip. Fortunately, MH was just as awesome as last time and the AXUS app she put together for us always had us informed before each activity. We had the best tour guides, wonderful drivers, fantastic hotels, & perfect sights to see that were some popular and some not so popular to the lay traveler.
I’ve referred a number of friends and colleagues to try Mason Horvath and see why we no longer stress over the vacation planning nor the vacation itself.

I found Mason Horvath through a Google search as we were trying to plan our trip to Florence, Italy. We brought our two boys with and knew they wouldn’t love a typical tour of churches and ruins. So we were set up with a local florence tour guide named Viola. She was amazing! Laurie did such an amazing job of finding us the right guide for our family with unique one-of-a-kind experiences. Viola took us on a 3-hour walking tour that ended with a private gelato making session with the owner of a local gelateria. Laurie really understood what we wanted as a family and came up with a plan that suited us perfectly! I am now going back to Laurie to help me with some wine country tours!
Our trip was fantastic. All the tours and all the drivers were great! We especially enjoyed our day in Capri. We also really liked our driver Roberto who took us on the tour of the Amalfi Coast. Thanks for the great job you did for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip.
Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful trip you planned for Janet and myself to the Netherlands , Belgium and France The program went like clockwork with an amazing job by the drivers and the guides. Of all our experiences the time at Vimy was one of the most moving days of our lives. You did a great job Laurie! Janet and Dennis Szafron
Our trip to Italy was simply nothing short of OUTSTANDING!! The hotels by far were better than any other tour we had been on and all of the guides and details of the trip were knowledgeable and helpful. We were a small group which let us have some flexibility in our travels. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone planning a vacation.
I worked with Cathy over several months to develop a tour of Germany to meet our family requirements as to interests, what to see, transportation mode, hotel choices and other suggestions. The end product was just what we wanted. Unfortunately, circumstances prevented us from taking that trip with our family, but Cathy found a commercial trip that suited my wife and me. We are looking forward to that trip this October. I highly recommend Cathy as a knowledgeable, diligent resource for planning a visit to Germany and surrounding areas.

My family and I recently contacted Cathy to plan an itinerary for our recent trip to Germany. Cathy created a wonderful schedule that was customized for my family's travel preferences. The tour guides provided were professional and knowledgeable. She was incredibly flexible as we adjusted the schedule to our perfect fit. We had such an enjoyable trip that we have already asked Cathy to plan our next European vacation. I highly recommend Cathy for her professionalism and ability to put together wonderful tours that are guaranteed to result in an enjoyable trip for all.

Cathy has been such a great help in helping me surprise my husband with an amazing trip to Germany. After I gave her a little back ground on our likes and dislikes she took it further and gave me undivided attention to personally get to know us. She also took the time to listen to my husband’s music to understand his passion for the ECM label. One of my requests as an anniversary gift was for him to be able to record at a ECM studio in Germany. Not an every day request but Cathy took it very seriously to make this happen. When we realized our son was going to graduate from the Coast Guard on the original dates we had selected for our travels she rewrote our adventure to dates that would allow us to see him graduate in New Jersey. We really appreciated the flexibility and patience. This is what separates Cathy from a typical travel agent and the same reason I trusted her with our very special adventure of Germany. Cathy, thank you so much for making this trip worry free.

I discovered Cathy Holler via the internet. Must have been in the stars because she is great. We wanted to join a tour group of Germany, Switzerland and Austria, but wanted to add some side trips. Her knowledge of Europe helped so much, enabling us to plan additional side trips. We wanted to visit the area of Germany where my ancestors came from and she arranged a special trip with a guide who spoke German. All thru the planning process Cathy was there for us.

My family and I recently enjoyed an extensive trip to Europe: Germany, Austria, and Spain. Cathy Holler of Mason Horvath Travel made the arrangements for us. We had excellent transportation with convenient airport and hotel transfers, and we stayed in nice hotels, close to all the action. We saw all the sights of Munich and southern Bavaria, Salzburg and Vienna in Austria, as well as Barcelona, Madrid and Toledo in Spain. She arranged a dozen very knowledgeable guides who made our tours and excursions much more informative, enjoyable and comfortable. Cathy is very skilled and experienced at her profession. She is great and easy to work with. When we had some schedule conflicts and changes in plans, she pulled a rabbit out of the hat and made everything work. Thanks again, Cathy. I highly recommend Cathy Holler!

We used Mason Harvath to help plan our family trip to Italy. The experience was excellent. This started right from the initial communication through the follow up, itinerary planning, suggestion of destination and tours. The trip exceeded all expectation. We have already been recommending Mason Horvath and will continue to do so. Mylen - you were wonderful to work with - thanks for helping to make our trip as wonderful as it was!
