Brenda was on the ball because she realized I had booked my departure incorrectly and was flying into the wrong airport for the tour. She called me at home and I was able to correct it with the airline at no additional cost to me. I was very thankful !

Gabriella has helped me with reservations for 2 different trips. For both trips, she answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner. She is always professional in her customer service, and her pricing of my trips were excellent. Because of this, I will continue to use Atlas for all my future trips.
