Luxury Alaska Specialist

While I have planned trips all over the world Alaska is my passion and my home. I approach each Alaskan itinerary as a unique opportunity to show you the best Alaska has to offer based on your interests. As someone who lives and works in Alaska I use my local insight and first hand knowledge to craft unique and immersive vacations. Some visitors may want to indulge in the ultimate relaxation of Alaska's fresh air and breathtaking scenery while others seek the thrills of and expedition into the back country. Fishermen, families, businesspeople on retreat, honeymooners, outdoor enthusiasts young and old all come to Alaska for different reasons. Whatever draws you to Alaska let me plan you the adventure of a lifetime.

When to Book Alaska

Shakespeare once wrote, “In delay there lies no plenty.” He was, of course, talking about love, but he may as well have been talking about planning a summer trip to Alaska. Christopher Travel recommends clients begin their Alaska summer vacation planning one year in advance. There are many reasons for this.

2 Weeks in Europe

Reviewed By Lisa - Alexandria, VA | Traveled to Europe
Mary was great. I was looking for some general guidance on tours in Europe and she provided several excellent resources. She also helped me ID airfare - didn't book it for us, which was fine, but found a great rate that I tracked down. Terrific!

Amazing family adventure!

Reviewed By Jayne - Watchung, NJ | Traveled to Iceland ~ Europe
Mary was incredibly helpful in guiding us through the planning process for our first family trip to Iceland. We just told her the kinds of activities and experiences we wanted and she did a fantastic job creating a really diverse and exciting itinerary. We were especially grateful for her recommendations about accommodations - every place we stayed in was perfect for our needs. Thank you Christopher Travel for taking such wonderful care of us - we can't wait to start planning our next family adventure!

Amazing Trip to Yellowstone!

Reviewed By Kellie - Collingswood, NJ | Traveled to Yellowstone National Park ~ Wyoming ~ USA
Mary was very easy to work with and helped us plan a great vacation to Yellowstone! We booked a few different hotels for our stay and the one offered better pricing if we booked it directly ourselves. I was very impressed that Mary suggested we do this, forgoing her commission on that part of the itinerary, in order to save us money. We will be working with Mary again for future trips!

Amazing trip

Reviewed By Cindy - Vancouver, WA | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Had a wonderful experience with Christopher Travel. They planned our trip to Costa Rica and made sure we had everything to enter this country with Covid restrictions and that we understood what needed to be handled. Mary was very responsive and even attempted to locate tours for us while on our trip and began looking for alternative flights when it looked like United Airlines was going to miss our connection. Would definitely use them again!

Dream Honeymoon

Reviewed By Joe - Springfield, VA | Traveled to New Zealand ~ Australia & New Zealand
Mary was amazing! We got our dream honeymoon; something we didn't even think was possible for our price range, and didn't have to deal with the hassles of most planning and research. We'd highly recommend Mary for any travel you're planning and could recommend her more strongly, highly or positively.

Mary is the Best!

Reviewed By Joe D - Minneapolis | Traveled to Roatan ~ Honduras ~ Central America
When my wife and I decided to take our 8 & 10 year old girls on our first-ever cruise, we were instantly overwhelmed with all of the myriad choices available for cruises. Which ship? Which ports? Which locations? The list went on and on. Blindly we reached out to some travel site looking for a good travel agent and while the first 2 that popped into my email were no good at all, along came Mary and her wonderful ability to ask us the right questions about what exactly we wanted. While we did not know 'exactly' what we wanted, we did have a good idea of what we did want. From there, Mary was able to expertly craft the perfect cruise for us! Coupled with her connection to the Project Expedition excursion site (so glad we decided NOT to go on the excursions the cruise ship offered...way to many people), we ended up coming back home with the love to cruise and will be planning our next cruise in a year or so, and will totally use Mary again for this next cruise vacation. Highly Recommend!

Wonderful trip to Oman!

Reviewed By Rebecca - Arlington, VA | Traveled to Oman ~ Middle East
Working with Mary was an absolute pleasure! She was super responsive, listened carefully to what we were looking for, and was able to plan a honeymoon for us that fulfilled our vision. We wanted a trip that was both relaxing and adventurous and Mary was able to make that happen! Even though were were Mary's first clients to travel to Oman, she did a great job finding great places for us to stay and fun adventures to go on, and really made sure everything was taken care of!
