Blake Van Liere

Holland, Michigan Travel Agent

Pathfinders Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

European and River Cruise Travel Specialist

Thank you for looking at my profile and contacting me for your travel needs.  I have worked with wonderful people, helping them fulfill their travel dreams, for 32 years.  It has been a pleasure.  During these years, I have also traveled the world and have enjoyed every minute!

Europe is one of my favorites, especially Italy.  Does Venice confuse you?  Well, it did me too, until now.  Let my experience guide you.  Places like the Cinque Terre are most enjoyed if you have first hand knowledge.  The ancient beauty of Italy beckons to me always.

The most memorable vacation planning has been booking a Villa in Tuscany for 6 couples. They enjoyed an incredible Villa, 6 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and a large private pool.  I coordinated a driving itinerary for them on the days they wanted to site see, organized a cooking glass and hired an Italian chef for one evening.  It was literally the perfect trip!

In the last six years my husband (also in the business) and I have experienced four river cruises, with three more booked for this year alone.  It is an amazing way to travel, with virtually everything included!  Connect with new friends in an intimate and fun atmosphere!  Or gather a group of your friends together to explore the world via the rivers. 

Haivng "travel" as my career has been the best.  I'm rewarded with repeat clientele whom I take care of.  Would you like to be one?

What a wonderful experience!

Reviewed By RhondaM - Allegan, MI | Traveled to
I was referred to Blake by a friend and was so happy to have her help planning our Spring Break 2015! We wanted a wonderful all-inclusive trip to a warm beach and she had great suggestions and helped us arrive safely at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riveria Maya. It was everything we wanted and more! She gave us all the information we needed so we were able to enjoy the entire thing - from the airport to the hotel, the excursions, and the trip home. I would highly recommend Blake's services and plan to use her again for next years trip:)

She is an awesome travel agent in helping to pick side trips, rooms, air fair, and places to eat

Reviewed By grandpa and grandma grunt - alaska | Traveled to
blake is awesome, she helps with every thing, she sets up the air fares,hotel rooms,booking the side trips we wanted,hints on where to eat and shop,and booking fantastic cruise rooms, we went with another couple and she had each of us on the same floor but on different sides of the ship, then when we had a day at sea, we could be on either side where the best view was. she is very professional,friendly,helpful,fun, and dedicated to her customers. if we travel again we will certainly contact her.

Amazing!

Reviewed By Mary - Greenville, SC | Traveled to
Blake first helped me with a trip 4 years ago. She's helped me do many fun things since then. She pays attention to who I am and plans things she thinks I would like. Even though we now live in different states, I would never ask anyone else to help me with vacation plans. Blake pays attention to all the details and not everyone does that kind of planning. She's great!!!!!

Made the trip planning a no brainer.

Reviewed By JD - Holland, MI | Traveled to
The plan for the trip to Italy was well thought out by Blake with good idea exchanges of our expectations. The final product i.e. the trip was perfect including the cooking demonstration, winery tour and of course 4 days in Venice before flying home. Our lodging was up scale but not the highest price out there to our bottom line cost benefit.

Fun, Fun, Fun

Reviewed By NT - Holland, MIchigan | Traveled to
I really appreciate Blake's travel expertise. When asked about traveling to a specific location, she gives me her honest opinion about the food and cleanliness of the country. Also, she has lots of traveling tips and she knows enough about so many different places that she can make valid suggestions about what we should see or do. I appreciated that she kept an eye on my travel arrangements to make sure I had taken the necessary steps to insure that we would have a smooth, relaxing and wonderful trip. Lastly, I feel Blake is honest. After agreeing on a price for a cruise, the cruise became discounted and she passed the savings on to us instead of just pocketing the difference herself. This saved us about $1000.00. Blake loves traveling and loves sharing her expertise with others. She does a wonderful job!

Couldn't have done it without her!

Reviewed By jlg - Hamilton, mi | Traveled to
Having been on a couple of cruises that were planned by someone else, I wasn't sure where to start. Online booking was getting a little overwhelming planning a trip for 5 people with adjoining rooms. Not only did Blake get us an excellent location on the ship, she recommended and arranged all hotel and transfers. It was smooth sailing all the way!
