I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

We had a great time. The pottery trail was very interesting and the zoo was wonderful. Patty did a fantastic job with organizing this trip. Every detail was perfect.

I had a great time I thought the zoo was wonderful I was a little disappointed in the pottery town that there weren’t more artist stores open.

As always, Patti did a wonderful job putting this trip. I look forward to our next adventure.

Wonderful trip - great people; excellent coordination. Loved the exhibit - the venue was interesting I was sad it was so hot that we were unable to enjoy the site. Enjoyed the history of the factory turned gathering spot. Bus was comfortable but wished the microphone and wi-fi were functional. Charlotte city tour was good - wish the guide had been able to project his voice better - the back of the bus heard little to none of the tour. Shopping was fun and I did manage to purchase some great items...enjoyed a lovely lunch! Hope to go on a trip again with Patty.

Great idea for a trip with a great group of fellow travelers. However, if the bus does not have an operating audio system or if the tour guide cannot get his audio working change the bus and / or cancel the tour, because is was a total waste of time for the vast majority of passengers (and, one supposes, a waste of funds)
By Bill O for Immersive Van Gogh at Historic Camp North End on 05 Sep, 2021
Thank you Bill for taking the time to comment on the trip. I was deeply disappointed that I was not able to provide the Charlotte city tour experience for many passengers due to the audio difficulty. I enjoy offering quality to my clients and this definitely fell short of that. I can assure you that it won't happen again.
