Scotland, Ireland & England Travel Specialist

I grew up in Philadelphia and continue to live here today, and I fondly remember visiting my extended family in Hartford, CT, over the years. They all have Scottish ancestry, and I love connecting with our shared heritage through their stories and experiences.

I became very interested in my family’s history, and I began taking trips to Scotland, Ireland, and throughout the United Kingdom as often as possible. One time, my husband and I were walking through Kilbirnie on our final day in Scotland when we ran into some of my relatives downtown. We spent the entire day together, and I was able to get a picture of the house my grandmother grew up in which was simply amazing.

After years of booking my own trips, I decided to become a travel agent and help everyone explore the world. Today, I specialize in genealogical, cultural, and experiential travel to Scotland, Ireland, England, and beyond. I’m certified as a SCOTSagent, BRITagent, and Ireland Specialist which gives me the tools to help you dive into the local culture and get the most out of your experience. Whether you have a family history you want to reconnect with or are simply interested in these cultures, I’ll personalize your itinerary so you can have an informative and highly enjoyable vacation anywhere you go.

If you have ancestry abroad, I’ll help you retrace your family’s history so you can visit everything from their original hometowns and houses to significant places where weddings or other events took place. I want you to feel a strong connection to your destination, and I’ll do everything to make your trip unique along the way.

I recently booked for clients with Irish lineage, and I helped them visit many of the towns their ancestors were from. I then booked a ferry to Scotland that recreated the experience of how their family would have traveled many generations ago. Along with this, I found local restaurants that served traditional cuisine along with local fairs that provided a firsthand experience of the culture.

While I specialize in genealogical vacations, I’m also happy to book general getaways and cultural excursions as well. As your travel agent, I will:

  • Simplify the booking process
  • Make traveling easier than ever
  • Customize your itinerary
  • Provide 24/7 support and assistance
  • Provide unique recommendations based on your interests
  • And more!

Whether you wish to retrace your family’s history or simply want to enjoy a beautiful European vacation, I’m excited to book for you today!

London & Paris With Kids!

Reviewed By Wendi - Southampton, Pa | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Lynn helped me plan a trip for myself and my school age children to London, with three days in Paris via the Chunnel. It was my first time in London and, though cliche, I wanted it to be a trip of a lifetime. Lynn found the most perfect lodgings for us, and recommended several excursions that turned out to be amazing. From little things (Do I bring pounds with me, or get pounds once I'm in London?) to big things (Do I stay in an AirBNB? Hotel?), Lynn's advice and assistance were accurate and beyond perfect! Best of all, my children loved the trip, and loved Lynn for all that she did and recommended for us!

Completely reliable

Lynn helped four siblings with differing travel objectives plan a trip we all loved. She listened to our needs and was able to make suggestions about what to see and where to stay that suited our needs and our budget perfectly.

"FABULOUS!" Lynn planned the whole trip...

Reviewed By KIM - Bristol/PA. | Traveled to
Lynn: I give her 10 STARS... I couldn't have done this trip without Lynn's expertise! She planned everything from airfare,hotel and excursions. She also recommended Pubs and other places to eat. That were very affordable. I was there 10 days and she made a plan for everyday I was there. I seen at least 1 or 2 Castles a day, because I specifically told her I wanted to see the Castles & Old Churches of Scotland. Lynn also made arrangements for me to meet Family while I was there... What an "Adventure"! I couldn't have asked for a better Guide and planner. Especially since I'm not one myself to plan such an amazing Trip!!! I would recommend Lynn to anyone.. The Best in her field. I plan on using Lynn for my next Trip she did such a wonderful job of planning...

Superb job with Amsterdam/Belgium trip for wheelchair user!

Reviewed By Mark - Hamilton, NJ | Traveled to
Lynn did an amazing job planning my trip to Amsterdam and Belgium! She did a great job helping me zero in on the specific cities I would visit during my stay as well as organizing my time so that I would get everywhere I wanted to go. All of the hotels were excellent and the transfers were seamless. I am also a wheelchair user and she made sure all of my accommodations were fully accessible. And even though Amsterdam and Belgium are outside of the Scotland/Ireland/England area that she specializes in, she was eager to help me out. In fact, she did a tremendous amount of research and provided me with a great deal of helpful information concerning attractions and itinerary ideas during my stay. I could not recommend her more. Fantastic!

Her organization made our trip run smoothly

Reviewed By Joan - Thorndale, PA | Traveled to
To plan our trip to Scotland, I wanted a travel agent that had been there and so had first-hand knowledge of the country. I was so happy I connected with Lynn! She was great at listening to what we wanted to do and what we wanted to see. She helped us narrow down what could work within our time and budget limits. She made several great suggestions of things to do and see. Loved working with Lynn who patiently answered our many questions. Every part of our trip went smoothly and we had a memorable trip. She helped arrange air fare, airport transfers, hotels, and tours. We could not have planned this trip without her help.
