"Hello, Mrs./Ms. Dhuyvetter. I'm Colby Pierce. As of now I am a culinary student finishing my senior year of high school, but, when I graduate, I plan to take ITMI's program and work as a tour director. I started listening to your program, Travel Talk, through ITMI's website. Being that there is very little information about the tour directing niche, your monthly shows showcasing this career field are invaluable.
-Colby Pierce - International Tour Management Institute Graduate

“I've booked countless author interviews and without a doubt, Sandy is one of the best hosts I've worked with. She’s extremely knowledgeable, knows how to engage the author and her welcoming tone makes her a joy to listen to. Anyone who is not trying to book an interview with Sandy is truly missing out.”
Kevin Finley, President of Leabhar PR 

"I have now been working for Sandy for several years and it is such a pleasure to work with her. She always responds right away, knows a lot of people and comes with great ideas. She helped me to develop my business. I highly recommend her."
Mickael Roques, CEO ADOUT INTERNATIONAL (France)

“What a delight it was to appear on Sandy’s show! She is the most knowledgeable, passionate, and well-traveled host with whom I’ve ever had the privilege to have share the airwaves. She is fueled with an insatiable curiosity, a dangerous wanderlust, and an up-to-date passport with extra pages, a combustible combination that ignites both guests and audience.  The only disappointment is when her show comes to an end, as the conversation could wend around the world endlessly. Sandy may just be the most interesting woman in the world.”
Richard Bangs, 'Father of Modern Day Adventure Travel" Co-founder Expedia and Sobek Mt Travel

"Great to talk to you... you are the one (who) really got me into radio interviews. You were my teacher."

Lata Patil, President, Cardea Center for Women, San Jose California

"And while I'd like to think it was a special experience just for me, I'd wager that your other guests feel exactly the same way if they noticed how smoothly it happened; honest Sandy - I do a lot of interviews and this was so comfortable and every question went in a different interesting direction or added to what we'd just talked about. And, you lay down a good piece of information -- interesting for the listener all on its own -- before you then move it into a question. That's something I'd now try and do myself if I was ever on the interviewer's side of a talk!"
Rick Antonson, President & CEO of Tourism Vancouver, Founding board member of the Canadian Tourism Commission, Vice President of the Board of Directors for Pacific Coast Public Television

"As someone who has participated in hundreds of radio interviews, I can say with assuredness that Sandy is one  of the best in her business. She's a delight to work with, and knows how to put her guests at ease while   creating  wonderful conversations for the benefit of her listeners."

"We are thrilled that you are able to take on unusual topics and be fair/truthful and not just be politically correct to please the majority. America is in critical times; look at the gas prices (I am cutting down my driving even though I own a Prius!!), food prices, high unemployment, lack of corporate moral, etc. I have been here off-and-on since 1965 and have never seen it more critical. If we don't reverse the downward trend, America will lose its moral and socio-political leadership among nations and one day be relegated to a secondary position UK (once an empire) is occupying now."
Vincent Yip, Lecturer, Stanford School for Continuing Studies

Sandy, you are the most efficient and dynamic person in the media industry. You are unforgettable”.
Sayed Khalafia, North & South American Director for Eg
yptian Tourism Authority

Mike Stark - Independent broadcaster.

What a great wealth of information you give travelers during your broadcasts ! I know from the daily requests for tour information that we get, that in these challenging times people are looking for information sources on travel that they can trust. What you offer through Travel Talk Radio is extremely helpful, as you cover many (if not all!) aspects of a person's trip. There is useful information for people who are just beginning to travel...as well as for the seasoned globe-trotters. Thanks for being here for all of us. AND, by the way, your "Traveler's Credo for Peace" that you have posted on your website contains many of the suggestions that we include in our "Travel Tips and Hints" for our sacred tour group members. In leading our tours, I've found that when people can hold those thoughts in their minds and hearts on a daily basis, their travel experiences are enriched immeasurably...as are the lives of all those they come in contact ! Thanks for the reminders !"

"The Internet continues to escalate as the major medium consumers use for researching their purchases. This trend has been particularly evident in travel. Travel Talk Radio and its host Sandy Dhuyvetter, have capitalized on this opportunity by providing a powerful, interactive, "web show." Anyone with a PC can tune in to hear consequential and insightful guests who provide information on travel. The user-friendly format allows listeners to ask meaningful questions, either telephonically or via e-mail. With this in mind, Trafalgar looks forward to hopefully being invited back to participate with Sandy and her team again".
Gavin Tollman, CTC President, Trafalgar Tours

"Sandy's enthusiastic personality and genuine love of experiencing fun, exciting, unusual places of adventure are her calling cards and add to the "virtual tour" as well as the "real thing". Travel Talk Radio is the perfect media to get the word out to many people about unique events, information about places to eat and sleep, as well as things that happen to celebrities, i.e. NSYNC's Lance Bass going to the moon. Sandy makes being on the show a comfortable experience; as if we were sitting in her living room chatting about our travel discoveries. She takes the fear out of "speaking to the public - live".
Lindy Poole, Manager, Kokopellis Cave B & B, Farmington, New Mexico

"Terrific program. Sandy has a way of relaxing her guests and maximizing the information in a pleasant way."
-Gerry Wilson, Founder, Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards, Temecula

"What a great experience it was to be invited to be on Travel Talk Radio with you and your staff. Your are really offering a great service to the radio airways! "
Mike Nodolson, President, Tricropolis Records

"Travel Talk Radio provided real value to the California Maglev Program and to our efforts to broaden public awareness of a high-speed, advanced technology transportation system being developed in Southern California. Sandy Dhuyvetter is a wonderful host and very adept at stimulating informative and entertaining discussion on topics of interest to the show's growing audience."
Albert Perdon, California Maglev Program Manager, Albert Perdon & Associates

"Sandy remembers what travel is all about...FUN. Her upbeat personality and polished delivery presented our product in a most positive light. We know what a great product we have. Thanks to Travel Talk Radio, a whole lot of other folks know as well."
Steve Gray, VP Marketing and Sales Glacier Bay Cruiseline

"I discovered your program recently when Eric Lund was a guest discussing one of my favorite haunts, Julian. By the end of the show, I was on a mission to eat apple pie. Thank you for the topic (although perhaps not the calories). "
Cynthia Dial, Author: Teach Yourself Travel Writing

"My appearance on Travel Talk Radio went smoothly and was a positive experience. Sandy Dhuyvetter had obviously taken the time to familiarize herself with the background material I had sent. This made for a lively discussion: Sandy asked relevant questions with my information and her listeners' needs in mind."
Sharon Silverman, Author, The Pennsylvania Snack Tour

"America led the way with twenty-four hour news twenty years ago with the launch of CNN. What followed were a plethora of copycat news services, each trying to best an industry standard that CNN set. And, with the growing reliance on the Internet for unbridled news comes a growing host of webcast services, with the latest, Travel Talk Radio, coming live from Carlsbad, California. And, when it comes to providing a medium to cover virtually every aspect of tourism and travel, TravelTalkRadio.com delivers, hands down"!
Kurt Burkhart, Director, Carlsbad Convention and Visitors Bureau
