Our job is very rewarding as we help people explore and experience the world! It is wonderful working with a client to plan their vacation no matter where in the world it might be. From simple cruise vacations to more complex individual personal plans. Each vacation plan is an adventure.

What is one thing that you would like people to know about you?

We love our work and we are life long learners and have experienced so much through our travel.

We also like meeting new people and talking about what is on their bucket list.  Family and friends are very important to us and we are pleased to have made many new friends over the past 18 years in our business.
