Cherry Hill, New Jersey Travel Agent

MCA Travel, Inc, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Europe, Canada, USA & Riverboat Cruise Specialist

In 1993 I went to school became a Certified Travel Agent and have worked in the industry ever since. I truly love what I do, there is nothing better than helping clients plan an adventure. I get to share my expertise and wonderful experiences while assisting them with the details.


I have been fortunate to travel the USA and Canada extensively and in the next couple years hope to be able to boast that I have been to all fifty states, I am only five short at the moment. Some of my recent experiences include:

  • The splendors of the Grand Canyon
  • Watched the sea lions on the California coast
  • Sat at the base of Mount Rushmore
  • Hugged a Redwood
  • Viewed Mount Rainier from the Seattle harbor.

I have visited Disney World countless times. These are but a few of the many wonderful adventures I have enjoyed in the US. Our northern neighbor, Canada is the country of my birth and I have been to seven of the ten provinces.

The majestic Canadian Rockies are my favorite place on the planet so far and I highly recommend the trip. The exciting city of Vancouver and the lovely island of Victoria are two of my favorite Canadian gems. I have looked down on the St. Lawrence River from the walled city of Quebec and I have seen where it meets the Atlantic at the northern most point of Nova Scotia on the Cabot Trail.

Some of my favorite international travel memories include:

  • Exploring the streets of Paris
  • Dining on a palazzo in Rome.
  • Visiting the statue of David in Florence and the unbelievable ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
  • Attending a bullfight in Seville
  •  Watching the wild apes frolic at the top of the Rock in Gibraltar
  •  Enjoying wonderful theater productions in London
  •  Standing in the room of Shakespeare's birth
  •  Cruising the Rhine on a riverboat
  •  Walking beside the beautiful canals of Amsterdam

There is so much more to see in Europe and I can assist you in planning your bucket list!

Next to actually traveling, my favorite thing to do is talk about travel. So please, when planning your next trip, give me a call so we can plan a memorable vacation for you and those you love.

My Recent Riverboat Cruise

Last year, I had the opportunity to take my very first riverboat cruises down the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Frankfurt. It was a wonderful experience that I cannot wait to duplicate. What a wonderful way to travel. Your riverboat docks right in town and you walk off close to everything. There just aren't words for the quality of the food. Every meal is gourmet and local dishes are offered at every meal. On my cruise, most excursions were included and there were many. The cabins were small but luxurious with a French balcony allowing us to enjoy the fresh air and scenery as we cruised. I loved it and I am looking forward to doing the Danube in the very near future.

Best Hawaii Family Vacation

Reviewed By Raj - Cherry Hill, NJ | Traveled to
We had started planning for a family vacation to Hawaii back in March with a National Travel Agency. Unfortunately, the Travel Agent did not follow up with my planning and I had reached out to Dawn in April. Dawn asked all the right questions, constantly followed up and made sure she met all our needs. She was always available to answer any questions and we were very comfortable in all our dealings with her, both via e-mail as well as phone. She even got us very competitive rates so deciding was easy as we had explored all options. I had requested a stop over in Seattle to visit my brother before we flew to Hawaii. Everything went smoothly down to the seat selection for our flights. The place Dawn had arranged for our stay in Hawaii was unbelievable and the whole family had the most wonderful time which made this vacation something that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thanks Dawn for everything. Looking forward to planning our next vacation with you.

Helping me make a dream come true

Reviewed By Brtt - London, UK | Traveled to
I have always wanted to visit London and Dawn was able to make that possible. She found me a great deal, in an amazing part of the city. She was also able to suggest different attractions that I should see, and was able to help set up anything that I need. I completely recommend using her services when setting up a vacation.

Planning made Easy for the Big Easy

Reviewed By Larry - Cherry Hill, NJ | Traveled to
Dawn has helped my wife and I with two separate trips to New Orleans with wonderful results. Both trips were surprises for one or the other of us and Dawn worked with us in keeping it a secret while getting all the arrangements made! Her knowledge and passion for the destinations make the arrangements and anticipation of the trip that much better.

Relaxing cruise thanks to Dawn

Reviewed By D and P - Cherry Hill, NJ | Traveled to Caribbean
Dawn is a true professional. She was a pleasure to work with while planning our cruise. Since we had never cruised before, we were a little anxious about destinations, weather, attire. She guided us through every step; always answering our questions promptly; never leaving us hanging. She worried about the details which is what we needed her for. There is no question...we will be calling her for our next vacation. And since she is so well traveled herself, she has given us a lot of ideas for next year.

Great help!

Reviewed By Laura - Philadelphia | Traveled to
Dawn helped a friend and I plan a cruise to the Bahamas. I had explained to her that it had been years since a vacation and that I really needed one. She knew that I was on a strict budget and helped my friend and I plan a wonderful cruise that hit all the best places. She made sure it left out of Baltimore so we did not have to pay for flights. She met with us multiple times to make sure we picked excursions that fit right into our budget and really listened to what we might be interested in so that she could make appropriate suggestions. We had a wonderful trip that took us to Nassau, Coco Key, Port Canaveral and Key West. It was a beautiful trip and we could not have done it without her.
