Gloria, the hotel was amazing. Once again you came through with great advice. The nicest place we have ever been. Gorgeous, clean, super friendly staff, food was fantastic ,amazing coffee bar, never seen any thing like that, 24hr sports bar. great professional entertainment every night. Room was fantastic, Rain shower cabin, and Jacuzzi tub. I don’t know how you did it, our room was on the top floor 17 stories and right in the middle of the hotel .The pool area was incredible 5 pools. And we got there at 10:00 am and the room was ready for us. We are going back there next year for sure. Thanks again! – Scott Brenner

Beth – We are so grateful for all your help and expertise! We had a fantastic trip, and we know just who to call when we’re ready for our next adventure. Many thanks! – Ellen and Blake Jones

My family and I have worked with Beth Yarus and her staff at TravelMasters for the past seven years.  They have arranged our travel plans for Mexico, Europe and throughout the United States.  Their attention to detail is beyond compare and we have received only the best in accommodations and arrangements.  I believe that there is no one better in the travel business. I highly recommend them and would use no one else! – Kathy Bilstrom

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Can’t begin to thank you enough for the wonderful Ireland/Scotland trip you planned for our family!! To arrange a vacation for 18 people with ages ranging from 1-1/2 to 70 is quite a feat, and yet you accepted the challenge and created the “Perfect Trip”! Your attention to detail, professionalism, knowledge and patience really made this trip a dream come true! You listened to our ramblings and “half baked” ideas and used your experience to turn it into an unforgettable event! That’s why we came back to work on the next European Vacation! Why you would want to take on this crew again is beyond me, but I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am. The time and energy you have spent with us thus far, as well as all your wonderful ideas, destination knowledge and logistical planning have made arranging this trip a breeze for me! And, you accomplished all this under budget!!! I am confident that this trip will far exceed our expectations again!

My family and I will cherish our memories forever, and that’s the best souvenir anyone could ask for!

Thanks again! – Vicki Bardsley (on behalf of the entire Zavich Family)

I really wanted to say that we both absolutely loved the trip. Everything went as well or better than I could have imagined. Both hotels were great but the Halekulani was really all it was cracked up to be, my wife was so excited when she saw the room that she started jumping up and down. All of the excursions were fantastic, I really can’t think of how to make the trip much better. Thanks for all of your help, we will definitely be repeat customers. – Dan K

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of your help with our Confirmation trip to New York. We had the most amazing weekend, and we really could not have done it without your assistance. Everything went so smoothly-though we did arrive at Laguardia at 4:20 for our 4:45 flight because of terrible traffic! But even then, the organized, clear information from you made it easy for the AA agents to print us out tickets, rush us through security and get us on board, so even that worked out in the end, which was nothing short of a miracle. I am looking forward to working with you again on trips in the future, and I will certainly share my positive experience with others as well. Rabbi Amy Feder

Several years ago my husband and I very cleverly made some convoluted flight arrangements to London and Paris and then asked a previously unknown travel agent to assist with plans for this family trip. Due to our mistake with the airlines and some bad weather, the trip collapsed; but our travel agent went right to work to help us redo all the hotels and tours. Ever since that episode, we have always made our plans with you. We’ve learned to appreciate your expertise. You know what types of things we like, advise us in areas where we’re not so sure and then handle all the details and/or snags of a trip. It has certainly been our good luck to have run into you years ago and we count on your input for all our future trips.

It’s almost an understatement to say that travel nowadays is stressful. We worry about security, we don’t know if we are getting the best fare, we wonder if our bags will arrive with us, and we go into a panic if we have to change our tickets. Thanks to Beth Yarus and her TravelMasters team, I don’t have many of these and other contemporary travel concerns. I feel secure in knowing they have found me the best fares and the most appropriate hotels. In addition, they reconfirm my seat and advise me about any baggage and weather issues that might come into play. If any extraordinary challenges arise, Beth Yarus is always reachable by phone or text. Knowing that she sits like an angel on my shoulder is both calming and convenient. There’s no such thing as an insoluble travel problem for Beth—she is a Travel Master. -Dr. Linda E Merians, New York

I have tried the services of many travel agents over the years. As a reference librarian I usually found that I could rely on myself to do a better job than any agent I found. That changed when I discovered Beth! She is able to put her hands on resources I cannot and delivers top quality results and competitive pricing in a hassle free manner. We recently returned from a most memorable trip to Argentina that Beth helped us plan. She paired us up with a local tour company and worked  relentlessly to insure every element was perfect…and it was!  Even though I live in NJ I am now completely sold on a travel agent in St. Louis – Beth Yarus and Travel Masters for my travel needs.  – Anita Kreitman

Beth Yarus has changed my life since she became my travel agent in 1991. I am an opera singer, and I constantly travel worldwide, with all the hurdles that carries, both predictable and unpredictable! Beth has always had instant solutions to the most convoluted problems with itineraries, schedules, personal needs and preferences, and has become a dear and trusted friend in the process. I couldn’t do what I do and retain my sanity without her.‎ – Susan Graham

Beth Yarus and the team at Travelmasters continues to be a joy to work with for my personal and professional travel arrangements. Flying into and out of St. Louis has become at best a challenge, but knowing that when I work with Travelmasters, all the inevitable travel hiccups will be expertly handled, makes my trip a lot less stressful! If I ever have a problem with missing a flight or connection, Beth is undoubtedly figuring it all out before I can even get to the counter. And when it comes to recommendations, they actually listen! Sometimes I want to relax and not see many people, and they have found me a quiet hotel off the beaten path…and sometimes I’d rather be busy and see the sights, and they’ve booked me at the hottest spots. When you’re traveling, you don’t need any additional stress, and when I call Travelmasters for reservations or with questions, everyone is so helpful and on top of things! I never have to explain what’s going on to any of the staff…they’re always knowledgeable of my itinerary and already working on any changes that need to be made. I always recommend Travelmasters to my family and friends! – Laura Bryan

I will make it real simple: Beth Yarus is the best travel agent in St. Louis. And possibly in the entire country! The lone fact that in the age of “internets” people like us keep coming back for her advice and service speaks volumes of her expertise and customer relations skills. The Khagi family loves you, Beth!– Ari Khagi

I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to know Beth on a personal and business level. Owning a business myself, addressing the smallest detail can make the difference between being a sales person or a professional who truly cares about her clientele. Her clients, being at the top of their respective careers, are afforded the same level of expertise as they themselves give each and every day. My number one pick for my family and friend’s travel needs. – M. Harris

I have been doing business with TravelMasters for the past 16+ years. I have used them for both business and personal travel. They are prompt, courteous, and fun to work with. In a time when internet travel services seem to be popular, it is nice to have a real person offer advice and assistance on where to stay and how to get there. TravelMasters is programmed in my phone if I ever need to make a last minute change of plans, which seems to happen often! I appreciate all what they do, but, especially their friendship. Rick Koelz
