O'Fallon, MO

Leisure Travel Expert and Group Travel Specialist

Travel is my passion and I have been traveling the world for over 40 years. My job is to make your getaway a dream vacation. The internet is a great place to investigate, but when it comes time to confirm plans for your well-deserved getaway, don't rely on information from the web. Call me so that I can use my destination knowledge to assist you in choosing the right resort in the right destination, with personalized service. Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, Ring of Kerry in Ireland, Chichen Itza in Mexico, Sydney Opera House in Australia and Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica... all beautiful, unique sites around the world that are definitely in some of my favorite destinations that I have visited. I have also had the privilege to escort groups to many destinations around the world. Whether it's a group of 10 or group of 1000, I love groups of all sizes! Multi-generational vacations, reunions, clubs, incentive groups, just to name a few, are some of the great groups I enjoy planning.

River Cruising

I am a huge fan of river cruising. It's a perfect way to see Europe's finest cities. The river barges usually dock right in the city centers. I loved cruising down the Rhine River through Germany on Viking Cruise Line. The sights were spectacular! Castles, history, pubs, bakeries and so much more...

Great Family Vacations

My husband and I travel with our children as often as possible. We love travel! Jan always takes great care of us and finds us travel deals that are affordable for a family of 5. We always travel to all-inclusive resorts and we rely on Jan to make recommendations for us. We've always trusted her and every resort we visited has been perfect for our family.

This is the best way to book your travel!
Jan worked tirelessly to get us the best rates on the rooms we requested. She was very helpful when we had to change the dates of our vacation, too. The Now Sapphire Resort she recommended was a wonderful destination.

Incomparable Service!
Service Extraordinaire! I am supremely satisfied with Jan’s service. I admit I am picky and ask for numerous little quirks on vacation, and Jan continually accomplishes everything I ask for and even comes up with perks I hadn’t even thought of. And her prices are always better than I can get on discount travel websites. I ask myself why should I go anywhere else? And the answer is, I don’t!
