Travelers comment about using Oddball Escapes to plan their vacations

It was nice not to have to worry about anything. Cassie from Oddball Escapes is awesome! Our 40th Anniversary was approaching and my Aunt recommended Cassie to help me with the plans. What a life saver she was. All we really had to do was tell her where we wanted to go, how much we were willing to spend and she did the rest. A tweak here and there, texts, emails and a couple of phone calls and presto it’s all set! We had a wonderful 2 week vacation driving from Florida to Washington DC and back through North and South Carolina and finally to St. Augustine. It was so nice to not have to worry about anything. I would definitely use Cassie again for any trips and recommend her highly to anyone planning a trip. Thank you again Cassie you are truly a blessing.

Our 30th wedding anniversary. It had been 16 years since our last “real vacation,” plus we wanted to do something special to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Cassie was very patient and informative about selections, while remaining sensitive to our apprehensions and budget… the result, the most wonderful, relaxing vacation we have ever had – a cruise to the Bahamas! From the fun and informative videos that walked us through each step, to the welcome home text message, she was watching over us with updates on any changes or delays. It was so nice not to have any worries and just be able to relax and have fun! I would never hesitate to recommend Oddball Escapes and Queen Oddball – Cassie, she totally rocks! Thank you for making our dreams come true – we loved it Cassie!

2017 Window Depot National Meeting in the Florida Keys. I wanted to make sure I expressed my sincere gratitude for everything you did to make this our best meeting yet. You went above and beyond the call of duty, and I truly appreciate your efforts. You’re the best travel agent I’ve ever seen… bar none. Again, thank you.

Watch a video from this family’s Christmas travels, December 2016


Our family vacation over Christmas. I want to say “thank you” for helping me with the Christmas Vacation package. I think the kids will enjoy it. Plus, if this travel gig ever plays out, I think you may have a career in video. 🙂 Loved the personality coming through the video, you were very thorough and both fun and easy to listen to. Enjoy your Christmas Holiday and again… THANK YOU!!

My family is from this region. Oddball Escapes is all about adventure and making memories. Cassie takes such care in making sure that your travel plans are tailored to your specific desires. She has excellent attention to detail that you know your trip will come off without a hitch! And in that off chance that something goes awry, you know she will be there to smooth over the trouble and get you back on track. Cassie’s passion for travel and adventure is contagious!

Best view ever! What a thorough package Oddball Escapes put together for our group! I was completely blown away by the detail and timeliness of the entire process. I would recommend Cassie and Oddball Escapes to any individual interested in traveling from just around the corner to around the world!

Comments about Cassie when she was a Tour Guide, before she turned into a Travel Agent


When I was traveling around the US, I was so thankful for my tour guide, she was absolutely superb! She was on the ball with everything and you could tell that she had done her research and spent some time on planning the trip, day-by-day, very well indeed. She always kept the journey fun and made sure the group, as a whole, would get involved. She would have us take fun photos, play games, tell funny stories and personal experiences and personally was a good friend to me. I still keep in contact with her today.

– Stephanie D.- 

Great tour guide. In fact: in all my travels (and I’ve had my fair share) it would be hard to name a better one. She always knows where to find interesting things and her organizational skills are really great. Fantastic, open and easy-going personality. Greatest. Plus she knows how to handle groups and keep things sunny at all times, even with varied groups of people (our son and daughter in law were very enthusiastic but our group also included an older couple that would have gladly adopted her).
Two big thumbs up (and that’s only because I don’t have more).

– Hans – 

The tour guide was well organized & professional. The enthusiasm made the tour lots of fun.

– Paula – 

The organization of the trip was fantastic. From planning our accommodation & activities to running road trip entertainment. The communication to the group in regards to timings for arrivals & departures was clear and precise. For the days when we were able to venture off and explore on our own, (for example: cities or national parks) we were offered range of information on the best bits to see from experience, budget allowances and generally seeing as much as possible within our time frames. Questions we had were answered thoroughly & promptly and you could tell a lot of time, care and attention went into our custom made program.

Our tour guide was dedicated to the group and ensured we enjoyed every moment of our travels. The little things weren’t forgotten and everyone in the group enjoyed their time together.
It was a great week on the road and I would recommend the experience to everyone. I can’t wait to come back for more!
