Custom Designed Itineraries

Day in Port Nassau, Bahamas
Day in Port Nassau, Bahamas

I am a travel agent who is also a travel enthusiast. So designing interesting itineraries for my clients never seems like work.


In fact, I actually get a lot of enjoyment from creating special trips and then imagining the enjoyment that my clients will get out of their personalized journeys.


I have been in the travel industry for over 13 years and am now the Director of New Agent Training in the agency I work for, Ticket to Travel. Over the years, I have worked with countless clients, including one of my biggest, The Real Estate Guys, who have a nationally syndicated radio program. It is my responsibility to put together their annual week-long seminar at sea, which is a challenging task that includes taking care of all of the event planning logistics.


Fortunately, I'm not afraid of challenges or taking on an itinerary that will require extra work. For example, I also recently helped four couples who wanted me to design a custom trip to Europe for them. They wanted to go by train to:


• Italy
• Switzerland
• Austria
• Germany for Oktoberfest


It was a very complex itinerary that required great attention to detail and took a lot of time to put together. In the end, my clients were very happy that they didn't have to do all of this hard work themselves.


Besides designing custom trips, the other areas in which I excel include:

• Booking cruises – both ocean and river
• Producing seminars at seas
• Group travel

When you book with me, you are getting an agent who will go above and beyond to ensure that your vacation is hassle free. I have a reputation for my outstanding attention to detail and am always available to my clients -- even on nights and during the weekends.


I am also a world traveler who has been to a number of destinations, including but not limited to many countries in Europe, New Zealand, Tahiti and numerous Caribbean Islands. I have also been on many cruises over the years. The information that I've learned during my many travels has helped me immensely when planning trips for my clients.


I look forward to working with you in the near future on a vacation that we will custom design especially for you!

Fabuloous Trip to Europe

Fabulous trip with great friends! I loved Zermatt, Salzburg and the Oktoberfest! Segways were an adventure full of fun! Thank you sooo much for all you did to make this a true vacation. I crossed a couple of things off my bucket list! I LOVED my first experience on the trains. Great way to see the land.

60th Wedding Anniversary in Maui

We had a fabulous time. My parents thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Our capstone event was Friday night at Merriman’s for their anniversary dinner. What an amazing setting and fantastic food. All the grandkids enjoyed themselves. The resort was good. Great location, and the amenities were perfect. It was everything we expected. Not super fancy, but perfect for families our size. We had dinner at Fleetwoods in Lahaina on Monday night. That was a real treat. Everyone loved the experience on Oahu – seeing Pearl Harbor was awesome. We had lunch at Duke’s on Waikiki Beach. Thanks for all your help enabling mom and dad to have an amazing experience for their 60th anniversary.

My Reviews

Our Most Excellent Italian Adventure

Reviewed By Happy Traveler - San Jose, CA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
It was a very positive experience working w/MaryLyn. From the first day I contacted her to the last she was very responsive and worked hard to provide us with fantastic travel info, itineraries and suggestions for our trip to Italy. She worked with us every step of the way to ensure our 'wish list' was met and suggested some great ideas we also included. MaryLyn planned our entire trip and provided us with all the needed info/reservations/vouchers for the plane, trains, hotels, tours, etc. MaryLyn did an exceptional job putting together our trip to Italy which made for a stress free and very fun vacation. I definitely plan to work w/MaryLyn again for future travel & have already recommended her to friends!

Honeymoon

Reviewed By Andrew - San Jose, California | Traveled to
MaryLyn was fantastic. She booked our three and a half week honeymoon to Spain and Italy and did a superb job. My wife and I had nothing to worry about because MaryLyn handled it all. We didn't have a care in the world before or during our trip. If you don't use MaryLyn as your travel agent, you're making a mistake.

Dream Vacation

Reviewed By Nellia - Gilroy | Traveled to
My husband and I used Marylyn to plan our dream vacation to Greece. With a limited budget and high hopes for not skimping on any detail we were worried. However, Marylyn not only worked with our budget but helped us to meet every goal we had for our once in a lifetime vacation. She is so knowledgeable, and had great tips that only comes with being good at what she does and listening to exactly what we wanted to accomplish on this trip. The icing on the cake is that she is extremely professional and genuinely a nice person who wants to make your vacation your best vacation ever. We were so happy with Marylyn's service that we used her again to help with our family vacation now that we have a 2 year old and it was the BEST vacation with small touches that were perfect for a small family. Not only would I use her again, but I have recommended her to friends and family and pleased to hear they have had a great experience as well. We can't wait to use Marylyn again!!

Professional, and expedient service with warmth and caring

Reviewed By Ginny - San Jose | Traveled to
MaryLyn worked with amazing expedience as my trip to Italy was planned less than 10 days in advance. Besides her professionalism, knowledge, skill, wisdom and experience, MaryLyn has an authentic and warm personality. You definitely get the feeling that this is more of a calling than work for her and she truly cares about you. She responds quickly to emails and questions and is meticulous with the arrangements she makes.

Marylyn has been helping us plan trips for many years. She is the best and we appreciate her knowledge. She has helped us so many times even when we have had to cancell a trip. Really excellent at her job. She booked a cruise for us that is a year away and closer to the time of travel she will make sure we get one of the best rooms on ship in our category as well as making sure we get good seats on airline. THE BEST!

MaryLyn is a treasure- makes every trip a joy!

Reviewed By Longtime Happy Customer - San Jose, CA | Traveled to
MaryLyn has been my travel agent for more years than I can remember. She takes care of all of my cruises and has been so helpful in getting me not only the very best cruise understanding what I enjoy, but also makes all of the arrangements to get us to the port city, the port, the pre and post cruise tours. And she makes it all easy for us. We started using MaryLyn when my wife and I were younger and in good health. Now that we are in our 80's and require more assistance getting appropriate transportation and shorter walks, she continues to make bookings with our concerns in mind. Last year we had cruise to Alaska booked with the land excursion. We had to cancel for health reasons last minute. MaryLyn took care of the insurance and assisted with the claim. Since I got back all of my money I was able to arrange for an Alaskan cruise this year that is just weeks away. In addition to the great cruises she books for us, she also arranges all of our air/hotel travel, including insurance which is necessary especially at our age. We take at least annual trips to Hawaii to see our son, business trips for me, and to France to see our granddaughter. MaryLyn finds just the right accommodations and air arrangements knowing what I like and what I can afford. She is a treasure!
