MEET THE TEAM…
With almost 100 years of combined travel planning experience, well over 100 countries visited worldwide, and one AWESOME Instagram mascot, we are your local travel planning experts!
We’ve seen the sun rise over the Vatican in Rome. Floated past ancient tribal communities on the Amazon. Sipped tropical cocktails on Palm Beach in Aruba. Golfed on a Greg Norman-designed course in the Bahamas. Viewed the scenic Canadian Rockies by rail. Strolled the Christmas Markets of Austria. Explored the cenotes of Mexico. In fact, there isn’t much we haven’t done…and we’re doing more and more every day!
This first-hand travel knowledge, and our certification as selling experts by the world’s best tour operators, cruise lines, and hotels and resorts all mean one thing…our team should be on your side when it’s time to plan your next vacation!
