Australia, New Zealand & European Travel Expert

Is traveling to the land down under on your bucket list? Look no further for a destination expert as I have been to Australia ten times and to New Zealand over a handful of times! I have a library of the most amazing places to visit in both countries. Additionally, Europe is an amazing land to explore. I encourage my clients to discover the area by river cruise or by land. I have experienced them both and love to share personal experiences. Contact me to book that trip of a lifetime!

Laura did a great job from the initial planning of our trip all the way to the end of the trip. She was quick and attentive to any question we had. She gave helpful tips to make our travel easier. She assisted in any way we asked. In addition to email updates she sent a final packet of information with all of our itineraries, resort information and local information. We also had a large group traveling together and accommodated everyone's wishes. Would highly recommend.

Laura has helped us with two trips and we would highly recommend her. In 2017 we took our grandson to Australia for his graduation gift. Laura made everything so easy with our itinerary and instructions and was always available to answer our questions.
This year (2019) we took our granddaughter on her graduation trip. We visited Spain, France and England. Once again Laura helped plan our trip. With Laura’s help we made memories with our grandchildren we will always have.

A trip we will never forget!

Reviewed By Happy Mom! - CEDAR RAPIDS | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
A co-worker of mine took this same trip last year with a group of families from another high school in town. He raved about it so I contacted Laura to set up the same trip for a group from my graduating senior's high school. It spread to 3 other highschools. I think Laura did a good job of juggling all the different families requests. Our trip went off without a hitch. The resort was beautiful, very clean, lots of fun things to do and food whenever you wanted it.

Laura Clark organized a wonderful European river cruise vacation for two for us. She didn’t blink we were two friends coming from
2 separate states, leaving on different days. Her organization was perfect, and directions and tips were always helpful. Knowing we could call her in case of emergency was reassuring (fortunately not needed) :). I have trusted Laura in the past for more complicated Travel planning, and will not hesitate to ask for assistance with future travel plans.

After booking a group tour and then finding out that tour was no longer available in 2019, Laura offered us an alternative. Since that alternative did not include all the places we wanted to go she made those a reality also. She booked all of our flights, our hotels, and tours. She even made sure there was someone at the airport to meet us. It was such an amazing experience.

We could not do this without her!

Reviewed By Janel - Cedar Rapids | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
Laura listens to our wants and needs for a trip and turns them into memories that last a lifetime! She is phenomenal! From the perfect hotel, to the best tours available, to recommendations for places to shop or eat - Laura thinks of everything. Her attention to detail makes the most out of each stop. She starts the planning process with our ideas. Once we discuss our initial thoughts, she provides us with samples of itineraries that cater to what we want for our trip. Once we have a solid idea of our must haves for the trip she works out hotels, travel, and tours, and travel between stops. She follows that up with a walk through of the trip, answering questions and making any necessary changes. She communicates with us the entire time making our overseas trips stress free! This is our second overseas trip with Laura (the first was Germany and Switzerland) and we will be back again!

A trip we'll remember forever

Reviewed By Tom - Cedar Rapids, IA | Traveled to France ~ Europe
This is the second major trip Laura has planned for us and both have been truly exceptional. She has great insight into attractions and locations and so she always identifies the kinds of tours and accommodations that meet our needs. She guided us to the points of interest that interested us and steered us away from the activities that wouldn't be a good fit for our family. Her experience gives us so much confidence that every experience will be stellar.

I also like that she listens to what we want out of a trip and can put the pieces together to deliver that.

But I think the best part of working with Laura is her absolute attention to detail. Every tour, every transfer, and every travel arrangement she made went off without a hitch thanks to her planning and follow-up. She coordinated so many details for our family of four and they all went off like clockwork. That allowed me to relax and enjoy the vacation with my family, rather than worry about those things. Thank you, Laura
