My Travel Experiences
A Bucket List Dream!
I flew from Johannesburg to Madikwe, a private game reserve about one hour away and stayed at the Madikwe Safari Lodge. It is unbelievable to see the animals right there, almost close enough to touch. Before landing, we circled the airstrip to make sure there were ...

Do you love wine, wildlife and the outback? Then South Australia is for you! I was just there visiting wineries, breweries and distilleries – yes, we did sample some of their products. A great experience we had was doing a Blending Bench where you create your own blend of wine from ... Read more from my WOW - Wildlife, Outback and Wine story.
This is an easy destination to travel to - a two hour flight to Toronto and another two hours to Halifax. We drove from Halifax to Cavendish on Prince Edward Island and spent time visiting the Anne of Green Gables area and seeing a play in Charlottetown. The scenery is beautiful ...

Aussie and New Zealand Specialist
LaVonne is an Aussie Specialist. She has many years and experience sending clients to Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and Fiji. Her organization and attention to detail is imperative in making sure that every trip goes to plan. LaVonne’s expertise and knowledge will ensure you have an amazing trip.
I know I told you I would let you know how the trip went after we returned, but I wanted to let you know while I'm sitting here on my large balcony (veranda) with a crank out awning less than a couple of hundred feet from the Mediterranean enjoying a glass of wine from the Cinque Terre, that you could not have found us a better room. It''s the best room they have, was only occupied once before us, is on three levels, with everything new--including a large shower with a deluge shower head and separate wand, couch, chair, desk, refrigerator, safe, service beyond belief and three windows and a walk out door on a corner room overlooking the sea. I'm going to include a few views of our room for your reference. Thank you so much for this ideal, once in a lifetime experience with excellent food, good weather and clock work connections. I'll keep you posted as things get better...if that's possible.
My wife and I planned our Honeymoon to Italy with LaVonne’s help. We were travelling to seven different cities over the course of nearly two and a half weeks, needing travel and hotel accommodations in all of them. Working with LaVonne made the whole process incredibly easy and painless. Our trip was AMAZING and everything went perfectly, thanks, in no small part, to all of LaVonne’s work and planning. We couldn’t have done it without her, and we will absolutely be working with her for any other trips that we have coming up in the future.
My clients were attending a conference and add some vacation time to it. Here is what they said out the trip. Excellent! Many happy memories!!! Here are a few pics of some amazing places. Thanks again LaVonne! We'll be back again for more travel planning!
Tauck River Cruise
My clients did The Rhine and Moselle river cruise and this is what they said: My wife and I have been clients of Lavonne for many years, and have been completely satisfied with her trips. Our latest one was on a river cruise in Switzerland, Germany and Holland. Most enjoyable trip we have had on a River Boat!

When we had to cancel our cruise in 2014 due to a emergency medical situation, she was on top of things, making it easy to make other arrangements which was a very big help...When we rebooked the following year, she was right there making the arrangements for us. We enjoy working with her and will continue to do so.....
A carefree trip

Trip of our Lifetime - Viking Star - New Ship
A great time!
I was in on the 'tail end' of our expedition to Alaska, but from those encounters, I found Lavonne to be helpful, attentive to details and willing to answer any questions that I had. We had a wonderful trip on the Coral Princess and our accommodations were very good. My thanks to Lavonne for all she did to make our trip easy to take! Our flight connections were also very good.
Awesome Help with Personal & Group Travel
Best trip EVER
She also set us up with a fantastic tour company in Rome and a WONDERFUL agri-tourismo in the hills of Sienna. We wouldn't have found it without her and it was the highlight of our time in Italy.
