I grew up with a deep love of travel.   When one trip comes to the end, I am thinking about where I would like to travel next.

I have been planning travel for friends and family for over 10 years. In 2014 I decided I wanted to do this on a professional level so I joined my current host agency, Tons of Fun Travel. I have since completed the course and became a CTA though the Travel Institue.  Some of the places I  have been to are Turks and Caicos, Grenada, Great Exumas, Bahamas, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City, Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Tortola, St. Thomas, St. John, Antigua, Hawaii, Puerto Rico,  California, South Carolina (Myrtle Beach), Illinois (Chicago), Las Vegas, Georgia (Savannah),Florida (Tampa, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, St. Pete, Orlando, Key West, Marco Island, Daytona, Sarasota).  I have done several cruises on Carnival, NCL, and Royal Caribbean.

I am a Certified Sandals Specialist, Palace Pro Specialists, Hawaii Destination Specialist, Jamaica Specialist, Aruba Certified Expert,  a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, Master Agent with AM Resorts, Universal Studio, completed basic certification for Romance Travel through DWHSA,  along with several other certifications. I am continually taking courses and attending training seminars to extend my knowledge and keep up to date on destinations.  

Because of the experience I have  gained from my own travels along with the training that I have taken and continue to take, I feel I would be a great benefit in assisting my clients to plan a remarkable vacation.  When planning trips for my clients, I use the same attention to detail as I would if I was planning the trip for myself.

Outstanding and Fantastic Vacation

Reviewed By Alan and Kathy - Ansonia, Ohio | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
It was an extreme pleasure to work with Julie Kimmel as we planned our trip to Alaska. Having never been there and only hearing of things to do and see, she was able to provide us with several suggestions of ideas and things to think about as we planned. We did a Cruisetour thru Royal Caribbean and were very pleased. She took care of all the reservations for the entire vacation. Julie provided us with a folder that detailed our complete trip containing all flights, hotels, cruise, transfers from cruise for the land tour, train transfers, etc. It was in complete order and professionally done. Made the trip totally enjoyable. We will definitely refer others to Julie as a great and tremendous travel agent. Our heartfelt Thanks to go to Julie!!

Trip of a Lifetime

Reviewed By walt - Greenville, OH | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Julie done a fabulous job at making our vacation run as smoothly as possible. All our reservations were made and she had all the documentation, including directions and maps from our hotel to our excursion, in the packet.

When booking a vacation of this length, traveling that far (Hawaii) and wanting to see so much in a short period of time I would have Julie do all your planning.

Can't thank her enough for a trip of a lifetime!

30 Year Anniversary Once In A Lifetime Trip

Reviewed By waltimin - Greenville, OH | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Julie done a fabulous job with correspondence and keeping us updated about any changes from the time we booked the trip and up until the day we left.

She had all the excursion reservations made with printed details and maps for each outing, which took the stress off me to make sure I printed everything.

She done our early 24 hour check in so it was great having our boarding passes ahead of time.

Would not do a trip of this measure without her help! She also had great suggestions of where to stay and what to see. Couldn't have been so organized with her.

I will definitely book another trip through Julie!

Trip to remember

Reviewed By The Kellers - Ansonia, OH | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Julie was a pleasure to work with and made us feel at ease planning out honeymoon. We both never have traveled outside the country and Julie was there to talk us through any help we needed. As we were on our honeymoon a hurricane was expected to hit and she stayed in contact to be of any assistance! It was great not having to spend time talking to airlines and the resort. We will definitely plan our future trips with Julie. You can tell she is experienced and thinks of everything! Highly recommend!

The Ultimate Honeymoon

Reviewed By JMR - Ohio | Traveled to Gros Islet ~ St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Julie did amazing job assisting us with planning our honeymoon! After asking us what type of honeymoon my fiancé and I were wanting (which was a combination of beautiful beaches as well as mountains for hiking) she had several suggestions, but ultimately helped us pick the perfect destination and resort that fit both of our personalities as well as our budget. She made the process so incredibly easy. Planning as well as traveling to our honeymoon was completely stress free because of her! She was easy to communicate with, yet very professional and organized. She even guided us in planning excursions and activities that we wanted to do while on the island. I HIGHLY recommend her for any travel plans you have in the future.

Julie made our trip worth it!

Reviewed By Ashley & William DeBord - The Excellence Punta Cana | Traveled to
Julie was awesome to work with. I had traveled before, but I had never booked anything myself. I didn't know where to start or what to look at. My friend had mentioned Julie and how great she was, so I didn't hesitate and I emailed her right away. Julie was very responsive with all my emails and answered all of our questions. I really didn't know where to start and she had given me ideas and examples and from there it was much easier to pick where we decided to go. Julie came to our house and even explained everything in person and to make sure we had any last final questions, that made everything much easier for me and she also brought us goodies for the plane ride Julie was so easy to work with, and she's just an all around awesome person. The next time we plan to travel I will be using Julie again. I highly recommend Julie if they aren't familiar with traveling she will get you where you want to go. Thanks again Julie for our life time vacation we will never forget!
