Europe, Group Travel, and Family Vacations

The view from Capri last summer
The view from Capri last summer

Travel has been a part of my life since the trip I took in high school to Germany that changed the course of who I am. I was fascinated with Germany and realized on that trip that the world was big and needed to be explored. I studied German in college and became a German teacher myself. During my career I took over 1,000 students and parents to Germany, France, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland (26 trips but I remember them all). I have traveled extensively to destinations from the northern villages of Norway to the islands of New Zealand.

What makes me stand out from other agents is that I bring 37 years of experience in travel, language studies, and education together. My love for travel goes beyond my own trips-I want everyone to be able to take the trip they want. If you are interested in a food tour through Italy or a beach getaway with girls, I can make that happen. I put my heart and soul into every trip I plan and make sure that you have the time of your life and a suitcase full of memories. I am organized, detail oriented, and passionate about providing the best service to every person I work with.

AMAZING Family Vacation!

Reviewed By Theresa W - Watertown MN | Traveled to Munich ~ Germany ~ Europe
Shelly was AMAZING to work with!! She was very excited to help us plan our trip to Germany! She helped save us money on both hotel and flights using our frequent flyer miles as well as having our hotel close, but not too close, to city center and within walking distance. She gave us so many ideas of things to see while in the area and recommending the best ways to get around in Munich. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone traveling to Germany, she knows the area very well!! She was always available to me, even while she was traveling cross county in the US as well as traveling in Germany herself! Shelly likes to travel and it shows!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

10 day Switzerland Snowboard Trip

Reviewed By pugfamily - Red Wing, MN | Traveled to Switzerland ~ Europe
Shelley was the BEST! She planned a 10-day snowboarding trip for me and my son to Switzerland. We just got back at the end of January. Everyplace we stayed was perfect. We broke the trip up into different cities and each one was just what we were hoping for! She was so easy to work with and was able to give up the trip of a lifetime. We met with her and she took care of the rest, and even gave us a thank you bag! She also checked in with us to see how the trip went and was ALWAYS available when I had any questions. We will definitely be using her again!!

Mexico Spring Break 2021: family of 5

Reviewed By Kristin - Goodhue, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Shelley was PHENOMONAL! My husband prides himself on being able to get "the deals" for traveling but agreed to trying out Shelley for our Mexico spring break trip 2021. He was blown away by her efficiency, the deals she got, her customer service, etc. She saved us so much money when booking AND by checking flights regularly and catching when prices dropped. Shelley met OUR wants/needs and also was always thinking about what would be best for our kiddos or our family as a whole based on her experiences. We were so thankful for her expertise and care. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By GLaqua3 - Colorado Springs | Traveled to Cabo San Lucas ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
From the first phone call, Shelley was professional, friendly, and accommodating. We listed out what we were looking for, the reasoning behind it and what our budget was. Shelley was able to give us insight into each of our destinations and sent us several options in each destination location. Every detail was listed out and covered by Shelley in detail so that we knew exactly what to expect; from method of payment, when the final payment was needed, travel day, specifics of our destination, and answered every question that we thought of after the fact. The entire process was seamless and pleasant. I recommend Shelley and Amazing Adventures Travel Agency to everyone; it certainly lives up to the name!
