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.

Best Travel Agent ever!

I've traveled every year for the past 10 years and I wouldn't use any other travel agent! Whether my husband and I travel alone or with a group of our friends, Jan always sends us to the perfect resort and always at a great price. I highly recommend her to all my friends.

Trip of a lifetime to Ireland!
We told Jan what we were wanting to see and asked for her suggestions as well. Our 9 days couldn't have been better! We loved every minute of our trip. Everything was just as she had said. Such a lovely destination. We will only travel with Jan planning our future trips!

Most relaxing trip ever!!
We have used Jan Stanczak for all of our travels for many years and she has been wonderful. The fact that she visits these resorts before sending her clients there is huge. I have had friends book trips online without using a travel agent and there are always issues and complaints when they return and I always say the same thing to them "You should have used Jan!" She takes care of everything for you, most relaxing, no stress trip planning! I highly recommend using Jan Stanczak for any of your travel needs, I have referred her all of my family, friends and others and I always receive positive feedback.
