“A once in a lifetime trip!”
My daughter and I attended the Formula 1 race weekend in Austin. I had several goals as far as experiences for me, and especially my daughter. Several of those goals involved Roadtrip’s ability to gain access to those that will say, “yes.” Wow! Roadtrips delivered beyond my expectations. My daughter has said it was the best experience of her life. Class all the way… the experience, the accommodations, the food, the people from Roadtrips. Especially our onsite host Laurence Cellario. What a gem she is. Thank You so much for a once in a lifetime trip!
