Ireland - Destination Specialist, Jamaica, Europe

I am proud to say that I am an Ireland Destination Specialist, as I have traveled there extensively, conducted tours, and lived in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

My experience and love of all things Irish helps with planning custom itineraries, catering to each clients individual interests, needs and budget.

Whether you wish to stay in a quaint B & B or a charming Irish castle, I will help you with every step of planning your stay on the Emerald Isle.

I work with couples, families, large and small groups and have even helped those that wish to trace their Irish ancestry. 

Not only am I able to help you with your travel needs, I am also able to tell you the best pubs, restaurants and sites to see.  Some are off the beaten path and those experiences are always memorable. 

Many people worry about driving on the opposite side of the road and sitting on the opposite side of the car.  It really is not as bad as one would think.  I do not suggest driving in Dublin city center but the rest of the country is very easy to get around.  If driving is not something you desire, I have arranged a private driver for many clients and they have all given me positive feedback.  With a private driver you are able to sit back, relax and take in the beauty of this amazing country. 

I look forward to working on every detail of your vacation in Ireland and making it a trip that will be full of wonderful memories for you. 

Testimonials I have received.

 In the intervening years Jon has visited Ireland on numerous occasions, up to three times per year in fact; and has travelled extensively throughout the entire country. In that time Jon has built up a huge reservoir of knowledge about our little country, I know of no other tour operator who knows Ireland as intimately as Jon.  The cherry on top of all of the above though is because Jon is held in such high esteem by so many “regular” Irish people you will have the opportunity to meet, and enjoy the company of; Jon’s vast array of friends and contacts all over Ireland.  Jon Collins is a truly remarkable person and is unequalled as a tour guide and tour operator, she is truly; as Irish as the Irish themselves

Most memorable trip ever!

Reviewed By Gary/Sandie - Davenport Iowa | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I have been working with Jon for many years now. She is professional, courteous, and goes out of her way to make each planned trip an experience to remember. We refer her to anyone who has considered traveling. She takes great care of them as well. She is always a pleasure to deal with and very self-conscious about the work that she does. We consider her a great resource but also a friend. Thank you for everything Jon!

Another Year of Sun and Fun

Reviewed By The Schmittys - Dubuque Iowa | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Jon, is there for us through the whole trip. From making sure you get the best seats on the plane to getting through Customs as quickly as possible. She double checks for special occasions to make sure you get any extra added hotel benefits/upgrades. She really wants to make sure you enjoy your time away. She always touches base when you arrive back home to see if there were any issues through out the trip. I have used her for large groups of family and friends and also just for my husband and I. Yes, she can make your trip one to remember! Thanks Linda

Memorable trip thanks to Jon

Reviewed By Happy client - Moline, IL | Traveled to Mediterranean ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
We are thrilled to have found Jon since our original agent had left. Jon took care of all the details for our Mediterranean Cruise. She is always available to answer our questions and meet our needs. We recommended Jon to our daughter and best friends. Our daughter is going to Ireland now and we cruised with our friends to celebrate their wedding anniversary which was put together by Jon. We are grateful to Jon for making our trips so memorable. If it wasn’t for meeting Jon we would have had to find another travel agency.

Awesome trip!

Reviewed By Chris - Sherrard IL | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Jon is wonderful to work with. She actually answers her phone and returns emails....which some agents do not, or take forever to respond. In this day and age where customer service lacks almost everywhere you go, Jon’s customer service is exemplary! I will always book with Jon for any future trips.

Great family vacation

Reviewed By Jennie - IL | Traveled to Mexico
Jon was so helpful right from the start. She helped us have the perfect family vacation. We told her what we were looking for and she gave us exactly what we wanted. The airline lost our luggage and Jon spent hours getting it back for us. She took care of everything so we could relax and enjoy our vacation.

Ireland: the BEST vacation choice for Europe!

Reviewed By SierraVista - Naperville, IL | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Jon Collins is an expertl in every sense of the word. In working with Jon, she "listens" to what the customer needs or is asking.

Your vacation is one of the most personal experiences you encounter, and you want a professional to have you and your best interest at the forefront of what they recommend for you and your family.

I highly recommend using Jon Collins for your European travel needs and especially Ireland. Jon loves Ireland and it shows when she creates the perfect itinerary just for you!
