Not a bad view :-)

It is such a pleasure to assist my clients with their travel needs, and helping them create unforgettable memories.

In doing so, I am able to help my couples, families, corporate clients, groups and brides, spend more time on their work, daily obligations and time together.

  • I make myself available to call me before, during and after your trip if needed.

Fun Bachelorette trip

Reviewed By Ginger - Shelton, CT | Traveled to Texas ~ USA
Recently I used Here to the Moon Travel (Michelle) to plan my daughter’s bachelorette trip. Michelle was so very helpful and every detail was addressed and taken care of. Our flights, seating, rental car all went smoothly with out any complications.

Michelle even went above and beyond notifying us of weather and flight delays so we would be aware ahead of time during our travels. I would recommend Here to the Moon Travel to anyone who needs travel assistance.

I will be using her travel company for all of my travel needs going forward.

Thank you Michelle, you’re a breath of fresh air in this crazy busy world we live in these days. Its nice to know you can actually speak to a knowledgeable person to assist with travel plans and know it will be planned out with no worries.

Thanks Ginger

Greece Honeymoon for the Gods

Reviewed By Jamieez - CT | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
Michele did an outstanding job planning our Honeymoon to Greece. I was overwhelmed with planning for our wedding and did not have time to do the research required to plan a trip like this. I knew I needed help! Foreign airlines, specific locations, car rental to road trip across Crete etc. We spent 10 days in Greece --> flew to Chania --> then drove the north boarder of Crete to Elounda. It was a trip we will never forget! She took the time to accommodate our budget, needs, and wants and then some! Each hotel had already been notified it was our Honeymoon and we received awesome upgrades, wine, champagne etc. it truly was magical. Traveling to Europe for the first time I was a little nervous but Michele quickly dismissed any of that. She was virtually there every step of the way, checking us into our flights, confirming reservations, and practically holding our hand through any questions we had while we were there. I had a vision and Here to the Moon blew that out of the water.

My family and I just came home from 8 amazing days in Aruba . I've never written a review ever as a busy mom of two babies but I was so impressed with Michelle from Here to the moon travel that I had to! All I did was provide the location and desired days and Michelle literally planned the trip as if it were her own . I didn't have to think of anything except packing for my family . Let me tell you we weren't the easiest either , we made lots of last minute changes and I never felt like we were bothering her or that it was a big deal .

Michele is THE BEST!

Reviewed By Marion - Bethel, CT | Traveled to
Michele has organized many trips for me including Vegas, Canada, London and a large group Mediterranean Cruise but the one I'm reviewing here is our last trip to Disney. What a great trip and it was ALL because of Michelle's planning and hard work before hand. She mapped out all our options including places to stay, eat and parks to visit and once we had that narrowed down she drew up a complete itinerary for us for the 4 days we were there. She made all the reservations and everything was really easy for us. We PACKED so much into this trip and got to see everything we wanted. We ate at the best places compatible with our budget and the place we stayed was perfect! Michele is super friendly, bubbly, is a a great people person and it was fantastic to see her in action. It's obvious how much she loves and knows about travel and the attention to detail she puts into trip planning shows in the end. Highly recommend using her for arranging your next trip!

Made Our Croatia Honeymoon Amazing!

Reviewed By Kevin M - Newtown, CT | Traveled to
Our honeymoon was amazing and went off without a hitch thanks to Michele! We began working with Michele several months before our trip to Croatia and she helped us along every step of the way. She began the process by suggesting an overall itinerary based our trip length. We then used this as a template and built our trip. We relied heavily on Michele contacting local people in-country for suggestions for day trips and hotels and when it came time to book everything she made the whole process very easy. Her communication and responsiveness is excellent and it seems like she is always available and willing to help with even the most mundane questions. To top is off, we found out that she had informed all of the hotels that it was our honeymoon and as a result we ended up getting some special treatment during our trip! I could not recommend her more highly. We will certainly be using her again.

Could not be more pleased

Reviewed By John - Boston, MA | Traveled to
Michele is not only the best travel agent I have ever worked with, she also has been the most incredible display of customer service that I've ever experienced. I tasked her with coordinating an incredibly complicated trip (Iceland, France, Toulouse, Kenya and Cairo). She more than delivered on all of our high maintenance requests (5-start hotels, interesting layovers, guides, excursions, etc.). The thing that meant the most to us is that when we had any problems with visas, hotels, or anything, she was extremely responsive DURING the trip (this meant working late in the night due to 7 hour time zone difference). She fixed any issues immediately so that we could relax and enjoy the trip. I couldn't recommend her more highly and look forward to working with her more.

Turks and Caicos Family Trip

Reviewed By rachel - Milford, CT | Traveled to
I reached out to Michele for help and ideas planning our family trip for 2016. I called her a year in advance (she probably thought I was nuts), gave her an idea of what we were and were not looking for and she recommended a few ideas. After some back and forth, we decided on Beaches Turks & Caicos. Michele was a pleasure to work with through the whole process and answered any questions or concerns I had. It was so nice to have someone handling all the logistics for us and we just needed to show up at the airport. She sent us all of our travel documents, along with some helpful information and some goodies for my son to keep him occupied on the plane! Upon coming home, she sent us a basket with wines and other treats to welcome us home. Her thoughtfulness and professionalism can't be beat! We had an incredible family vacation. One that will be tough to beat. We will definitely use Michele again in the future and have recommended Here to the Moon Travel to family and friends and will continue to do so!

Top-Notch, Stress-Free Travel Planner

Reviewed By Amy R. - Trurmbull, CT | Traveled to
I worked with Michele and Here to the Moon Travel for a solo personal international vacation to New Zealand and Japan. My experience working with her was wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone. Outside of traveling to the Caribbean, this was the first time I was traveling internationally and I had an ambitious plan in mind – two countries, eleven cities, three weeks and a finite budget. Michele started off by asking me what my goal was for my trip and with the objective of seeing as much of each country in the short time I had she helped me connect the dots and put into place all the logistics I needed to make this trip a reality – flights, hotel, travel to/from airports, arranging travel within and between cities and countries, and arranging structured tours as well as free time on my own. All within my specific budget! Her research was thoughtful and I ended up with super-detailed itineraries that were extremely helpful. I had several guided tours which were all great, with knowledgeable guides. Thanks to Michele’s planning I was able to loop together several of New Zealand’s and Japan’s main attractions plus have time to explore on my own which was important to me. She reserved hotels that were all high-quality and ideally located in either downtown areas or near train stations which was very helpful for me since I was traveling alone. Michele was very responsive and replied to any question within a day or two, connected me directly with vendors when needed and checked-in with me during the trip as well. My trip was hassle-free and everything went very smoothly and seamlessly. I was never confused about what was happening when or how I was getting where I was supposed to be. The logistics of my trip (and there were many given the aggressive pace of what I had planned) felt effortless, allowing me to focus on the experience. I'll definitely work with Michele again the next time I travel and absolutely recommend Here to the Moon with no hesitation.

I loved working with Michele. She was cordial, bright, knowledgeable & well organized. She made the arduous task of planning a vacation simple and enjoyable. I loved the many choices Michele presented us concerning hotels and tour packages. She welcomed our numerous questions & phone calls and gave us great advice on sightseeing & transportation. Out trip to Italy did not disappoint....it was wonderful! Our itinerary was clear and well thought out. All transfers were punctual with courteous employees. The hotels were magnificent....loved, loved, loved the Hotel Brunelleschi in Florence, which btw has a small museum of its own. Very elegant and centrally located & just around the corner from the great Duomo. Rome Times Hotel was a reasonable walking distance to the Trevi Fountain which we visited nightly since it was in the heart of great shops & restaurants. In Venice, we stayed at the Carnivale, another excellent hotel, but a good deal away from the center of Venice but still walkable

Michele went above and beyond right from he start. Getting 10 guys on the same page isn't easy, she made it seem effortless. Three days prior to our trip one of the guys had to switch his return flight to an earlier flight which she made happen without a fuss. When we arrived at our hotel after checking in Michele had two bottles of champagne sent up to my room to start the bachelor party off correctly. Then on the day of return three of us wanted to stay an extra day in Vegas and once again she pulled through on an hours notice! Will be using her for my honeymoon and all other travels, and suggest that everyone else does too. Here to the moon travel and Michele are awesome!

Michele did an excellent job in putting together a traveling package for a party of 10.

California Dreaming!!

Reviewed By Lauren Improta - Stamford, CT | Traveled to
Michele just planned a 7 night vacation to California for my husband and I starting in San Francisco, then Napa, and ending in Monterey. She did a superb job listening to our desires and then finding hotels that fit our standards. Each hotel we stayed at was absolutely awesome. We highly recommend all three of them. In San Francisco we stayed at The Hotel Monaco on the corner of Geary Street right in the heart of Downtown. It was in the perfect position for walking around. We even walked all the way to the Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square. There was $25 a night parking across from the hotel too that we took advantage of. In Napa we stayed at a 12 room hotel called the Milliken Creek Inn. The Milliken is a really special place. You feel so at home and the place is so posh and serene at the same time. Michele knocked it out of the park with this place. The Milliken is now our 2nd favorite hotel we've ever stayed at, the first being Sugar Beach in St. Lucia - also another place Michele booked for us. Everything down to the warm fresh cookies, and cheese and wine socials, this place rocked! We're now in Monterey staying at the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa centered right on Canery Row. We're in walking distance to a lot of stuff including a ton of restaurants and shops and the Aquarium. Each stop in California has been so unique and Michele was able to find three different hotels, each as unique as their locations yet all catering to our standards and expectations. Booking with Michele is also a breeze. She listens and doesn't settle until she creates an itinerary you're 100% satisfied with. This is my first time out to California and Michele helped us to plan a trip that allowed us to see as much as possible. She uses her first hand experience, being an avid traveler herself, and all the knowledge from planning numerous trips for others to create the most special vacation experience.

Dreamy Italian villa for destination wedding

Reviewed By Dominique - Bridgeport, CT | Traveled to
Michele helped us book the most amazing villa in Sorrento, Italy to celebrate our wedding. She goes over and beyond. Not only did she find the perfect villa for our special occasion but she always brought me back down to earth during my bridezilla moments. Our friends and family still can't believe I planned an entire wedding over seas, in a foreign country, one that I have never been. I can't even speak Italian. But Michele made this all possible. Best travel designer and just an amazing person to know. Such talent, that she can add wedding planner to her resume. There's nothing Michele can't do. I can't thank her enough.

Great attention to detail - made traveling easier than it should be.

Reviewed By KPM10 - Stamford, CT | Traveled to
Michele has a great attitude towards giving you the vacation of your dreams. We had her plan our two week Italian honeymoon, she was very thorough with the planning and the details - it made the planning much less stressful than it could have been. She also listens to your requests, and tries to get you everything you are looking for (within your budget of course!) I would use Michele again for vacation planning, I feel like she treated me like we were old friends and really wanted my husband and me to have a great trip! We did :)

LOOK NO FURTHER!

Reviewed By LoLo - Trumbull, CT | Traveled to
I stumbled upon Michele's services after she was tagged in an Instagram post. Boy am I happy I saw it! I emailed Michele after perusing her website briefly. I was looking to book a European cruise just 3 months away. Knowing it was close, and that traveling to Europe in the summer months can be expensive, I let Michele know about our budget and she worked quickly to find options. Although our first option fell through, BECAUSE OF MY OWN FAULT, Michele was relentless in trying to find alternatives. We moved from emailing each other regarding our thoughts, ideas and options to texting minute by minute changes. I was text-blasting Michele non-stop, and she didn't skip a beat. She was quick to respond, honest when necessary, and never pushy. (Self admittedly I am an annoying person, and Michele tolerated me with ease and grace!) Michele offered both her professional expertise AND her personal opinions too; which I appreciated. Although she has traveled extensively, I felt Michele worked diligently to find out information she did not know off-hand. For example, she conferred with OTHER agents regarding my ability to make an early flight after disembarking. I appreciate that she was humble enough to ask for other agents opinions. Within 48 hours after contacting Michele we booked our European cruise! It will be the first for me, and I can not wait. I have no doubt that I will continue to utilize Michele's travel services. Her accessibility, knowledge and timeliness far outweighs anything I could have booked myself. Sorry, Travelocity, Expedia, Priceline, etc. Here to The Moon has my business now and forever. I not only gained a great trip through our interaction, but I do believe I made a new friend too! I can't wait to book future trips with Michele, Disney has already been mentioned. But first, (thanks to Michele), Europe!

Maldives Friendcation

Reviewed By Joe - Stony Point, NY | Traveled to
I cannot say enough good things about Michelle!!! She spent months with us planning the perfect friend-cation to the Maldives. It was our first and in dealing with groups of people I understand things get tough trying to meeting everyone's expectations. She balanced that expertly! Our trip required Visa's, boat transfers and managing a switch in rooms to the huts over water half way through. Michelle handled everything with ease and made what seemed like a very tough task seem easy. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has the ability to think out of the box and make your trip seem like its the only special trip she is planning. Her attentiveness and ability to look at every detail makes anyone booking with her feel at ease.
