A bit more about me...

Suited up before jumping off the Auckland Tower
Suited up before jumping off the Auckland Tower

People travel for different reasons and it's my mission to ensure they aren't disappointed in the trips they entrust me to help create.  I take a bit of an empathetic approach in my planning.  After a brief consultation, I plan my client's journey as if it's a trip that I'll be taking.  Keeping your budget, desires and expectations in mind while I work to create your vacation. 

As a specialist I had to complete and pass all mandated tourism boards courses.  As well, I continue my education with regular destinations trainings.  I also find networking with various tour operators and other travel suppliers beneficial so I am up to date on such things as new tours and special offers that could be of interest to my clients.  My networking is done with office visits, webinars and attending trade shows and conferences.  However, I feel that in order to give my client's true guidance I need to experience a country myself.  So, I visit each of the countries I focus on as regularly as possible. 

One of my greatest joys is hearing from my client's after they've returned home telling me how much they enjoyed their travels.  I hope to one day have such a conversation with you. 

Please feel free to contact me when you're ready to start planning your next dream trip. 

 

 

 

Client testimonial

We first used Wally at Signature Destinations back in 2005 on our trip to Beijing, China. The trip went off without a hitch and was so smooth that we used Wally as our personal travel agent to book our subsequent trips to South Africa, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand. The biggest trip Wally has done for us was a 28 country, Round-the-World itinerary that he expertly booked and was PERFECT! Wally is a true travel professional and knows his stuff and has never led us astray and has gotten us out of several binds overseas. We have recommended him to all of our friends and family and will never book an overseas trip without him! .... Carmen B.

Great memories of a great trip

Reviewed By JB Stanley - Phoenix, Arizona | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
It was our good fortune to work with Wally Jones to arrange our trip to Australia.
One of the things that impressed us the most was the way Wally listened to us so he could customize our trip around our interests.
The accommodations he booked for us were all top notch and included an upscale bungalow on the Queensland coast and a lovely boutique hotel on the waterfront of Hobart.
Wally also had loads of practical tips, ranging from how to navigate the airports to some of the best places to shop in Sydney. He also handled our arrangements for a rental car for the week we spent in Tasmania.
All told, Wally worked with us for weeks, revising our itinerary as we tweaked our schedule. Throughout the process, Wally was easy to contact, thoroughly professional and always friendly.
Thanks to Wally, our trip was amazing in every way, and we came home with incredible memories. We couldn’t be happier with the results, and we’re already talking with Wally about another trip next year!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Wally is a Travel Leader

Reviewed By Paula K - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to Europe
I have been working with Wally Jones for 12 years. I use Wally to book travel for an executive team with a heavy and complicated travel schedule. Wally has extensive travel knowledge both in Domestic and International travel. He always goes the extra mile to make sure everything is in order for our team and uses his local contacts to make sure they have the best travel experience possible. I recommend Wally without hesitation.

Very well organized first trip to London and Paris

Reviewed By First Timer to Europe - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Wally was easy to work with. He took a generous amount of time to speak with me on the phone multiple times during the process of planning my vacation. He has knowledge of very good tour companies and reliable transportation companies to provide services where I traveled (London/Paris). Wally made it very easy for me by emailing a final grouping of vouchers that I printed and took with me on my trip. These vouchers not only acted as tickets in some cases, but also were a good way for me to remember my scheduled events. Because of the help Wally provided me, my trip was much easier and stress free. This was my first time to both London and Paris, so having the help of someone who has been there before, and understands the best ways to plan, was invaluable.

Portugal with Viking, one of the best Viking Trips

Reviewed By Larry & Mary - Suwanee, Georgia | Traveled to Portugal ~ Europe
Wally has coordinated several trip for us with our friends in Phoenix to Europe, Alaska, and the Caribbean. He has done exceptional planning and coordinating travel and lodging arrangements as we are in Atlanta and travel companions are in Phoenix. We recently had our travel plans to Portugal interrupted by a last minute flight attendant strike in Germany with Lufthansa and when we were notified he already had travel options available to us for Phoenix and Atlanta to make sure our trip was not interrupted. He does an excellent with taking care of the details and updates.

Family Vacation

Reviewed By April - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Wally has been my travel agent for years now. He is my rock. To date, I don't think Wally has ever made a mistake in my reservations. He has attention to detail which I don't have the fortune to have.
I don't know how he does what he does so well, but I am grateful.
In short, I highly recommend Wally to any of my friends should they need help with their travels.
Thank you,
April Rains Portillo
