Leisure Travel Expert and Group Travel Specialist

Travel is my passion and I have been traveling the world for over 30 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 actually 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.

Last hurray before med school
Jan was the best. We decided to take this trip at the last minute and it wouldn't have been as nice or gone as smoothly if it hadn't been for Jan's expertise and knowledge. Her responsiveness was outstanding. We will most certainly be using her again for our travels.

Daughter's Dream Beach Wedding!!
We couldn't have asked for better or more friendly service! Jan helped our daughter's dream of a beach wedding just perfect! She listened to what we wanted and delivered it all and more. The resort she suggested was intimate and beautiful, with terrific service, views, beach, food, etc. She guided us in discussions with the wedding planners, who were outstanding. The travel arrangements were amazing and very organized. She was always available and willing to help when we had any questions and quick to find the answer for us. Jan is very friendly, personable, and knowledgable. We will certainly trust her and her team for our next vacation.
