Luxury Cruise and Travel Specialist

My love for cruising was born on world cruise, when I performed as a classical dancer onboard a 5-star luxury liner, with Silversea. After traveling the world as a dancer, I decided to pursue an MBA, so I could start my own travel business. Sharing my love of cruising with my clients is a passion, and I host groups of clients on their cruises every year - from 20 to 220 people!

Whether you're traveling solo, as a couple, family or with a group, it's my pleasure to hand-craft your ideal travel itinerary. I love the sense of satisfaction I get I set up an exclusive trip for clients - like a private island rental or whole castle rental - and they share after arriving home what a special, once-in-a-lifetime experience it was.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about luxury ocean cruises, river cruises, land tours, custom land and rail journeys - or perhaps a creative travel idea I've never heard of before! I'm always glad to share my tips on finding discounted business class airfare, and even when I'm not cheaper than other options, I'm always working hard to provide my clients value and convenience at every turn. The number of repeat bookings and referrals I receive means I must be onto something!

I look forward to hearing from you, Johanna

Making clients dreams come true

Viking Ocean, the #1 Ocean Cruise Line, ask me why
Viking Ocean, the #1 Ocean Cruise Line, ask me why

World Cruise Client Beth says: "We cannot say enough about our trip around the world so far. Our ship, the Viking Sun, is absolutely gorgeous, with countless pieces of art, beautifully decorated common spaces and the most wonderful and creative menu we have ever enjoyed on a ship, bar none.  The staff are attentive and kind, our stateroom is beginning to feel like home, and we are thrilled to be part of the first Viking World Cruise! ...We cannot thank you enough for making this trip possible for us. To say it is the trip of a lifetime may be premature: I'm already talking up another world cruise in 5 years..."

First Class all the way and back to Italy

Reviewed By Bill and Lisa Schulz - Sparks NV | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We recieved First Class treatment the minute we contacted Johanna about our luxury Italian honeymoon. I have not used a travel planner in many years and after our past journey we will be using Johanna again very soon. I first found Holiday Plan It at the top of the Google search and gave Johanna a call.
She asked me what my wife and I were looking for in our dream honeymoon to Italy and our budget. She went work and we met a week later at her office in Sparks. She had several options for tours. But, we opted to let Johanna take the reins to build our dream escape. We just got back from our amazing honey to Italy (Venice, Florence, Rome) with First Class air travel and accommodations that matched. Johanna also booked great tours at the Coliseum, Tuscany, and the Vatican. The thing that impressed me most is she always respected our budget and never tried to push us. Thank you for an incredible getaway that we will never forget.

We have worked with Johanna for several years and will always return to her care! She is thoughtful and always has details at her command. She is extremely responsive and always there when we need her, like when travel changes in the middle of an oversees vacation.

Belizean paradise

Reviewed By Katie S - McFarland WI | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
We not only worked with Johanna, but also traveled with her. It takes unimaginable organizational skills to get 29 people from different parts of the country to and from an island off Belize. Johanna's professional expertise and attention to detail made it truly a vacation for the rest of us. At every step of the way, she was the consummate professional, gracious, unflappable, and a whole lot of fun!

Worry free travel!

Reviewed By Just a couple of travelers - Reno, Nevada | Traveled to Poland ~ Europe
We have worked with Johanna on all of our overseas travel; her services are unmatched. She is extremely knowledgeable and offers her unbiased opinions and suggestions for our itinerary. We have trusted her completely when booking hotels and it has always worked out in our favor. Each hotel has been amazing and in a wonderful part of the city. On our trip to Amsterdam we had a problem with payment upon checkout at our hotel, when we contacted Johanna and advised her of the problem she immediately handled the situation leaving us with nothing to worry about. She is the only travel agent we trust!

Joanna was amazing to work with, she communicated very well, and was super friendly as always.

Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By K & M - McFarland WI | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Two qualities Johanna has that make her special are her attention to detail and her sense of fun in helping you plan your trip. Our recent trip to Alaska is the second I’ve taken with her guidance and in an increasingly complicated world, your trip becomes a true vacation with her help. She knows how to smooth out the bumps in logistics, get a good deal and she is sensitive to recommending must-see sites or side excursions that fit perfectly with what you like. She truly helped make our trip to Alaska the trip of a lifetime.

Goes the Extra Mile to Get the Best Deals

Johanna knows that I'm picky and also want to secure the best deal possible. I made her work for getting the best possible deal on our river cruises, but it never phased her.

Reviewed By Gene Gray - Ramona | Traveled to
From start to finish Johanna made this the easiest and best trip we could have asked for. She hand delivered our travel papers to us, we are near San Diego, and she went on the cruise with our group. She was always available with answers to our questions before we knew what our questions were. Hopefully we will need her help again soon for another cruise! Thanks again Johanna, we had a great time and thanks for all your hard work.

Sister's 50th Birthday Bash

Reviewed By Karen S - Sussex, Wisconsin | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
We recently got back from my sister's 50th Birthday Bash at Coco Plum Island. Johanna coordinated the flights, hotel stays, transportation, etc., for 29 people coming in from many different destinations. Everything went smoothly and we all had tons of fun. Johanna had put a booklet together for me with all of the travel and contact information so I could help coordinate things during the first leg of the trip and the last leg of the trip home. Thanks to the detailed information, it helped to save us from being charged for items we already paid as well as to be sure we got to the correct hotel on the way home as the driver was given the wrong one. Thank you so much for all that you did, Johanna, in making this the best birthday ever for Kris! I look forward to having Holiday Planit plan my 50th birthday bash as well! I highly recommend Johanna and Holiday Planit for all of your travel needs. Thank you, Johanna!

Most Memorable Trip!

Reviewed By Steve - Las Vegas, NV | Traveled to
Johanna did an excellent job in planning a surprise trip for my wife's 40th b-day. She arranged a stay for us in a ranch house near Sedona, AZ. My wife was so excited! Johanna helped to make it a trip of a lifetime. Upon arrival, we were made to feel as though we were part of the family. This was an actual working cattle ranch and Johanna arranged for us to go on a private horseback ride through the mountains in the area. Later that night, we enjoyed an outdoor cookout with live music and fun activities. What an excellent trip! Johanna was always available if we had questions. I was also told by the staff of the ranch that they enjoyed dealing with her over the phone because of her professionalism. They stated they could tell she was very attentive and wanted to ensure her clients (us) had a memorable stay. Thanks again, Johanna, for all of your hard work. It does not go unnoticed.

What a gem!

Reviewed By Beth - Las Vegas | Traveled to
We have traveled a great deal, and are so glad to have found Johanna for our recent-past, current and future vacations! She is certainly knowledgeable, and is also very responsive to questions about a booked trip or ideas for future travel. Friends have arranged group trips for us through other agents in the past, and we have found those consistently lacking, unlike the vacations that Johanna has arranged for us. We can't recommend her highly enough!

She did such a fabulous job organizing the accommodations, events, park entry, etc. My 50th is in 2017 and we are plannng a trip to an Island off the coast of Belize (Coco Plum Cay Island). Johanna obtained the information on how to reserve the island for the entire party and managed the securing of downpayments, Insurance, etc. She helps with updates on our Facebook Group Page and keeps up posted on receipt of reservation from our guests!

Disney in 14 with [email protected] 50

Reviewed By Mary - Ohio | Traveled to
It was a nice hot summer day in Las Vegas Nevada in 2012 when I went to johanna with the news that I wanted to celebrate my 50th birthday with lots of friends and family in Disneyland Californian. We had 2 years to plan this birthday bash, so she started right away with the research and planning. She advised me all along the way. In July of 2013 I moved from las vegas to ohio, the pLanning continued wit out a hitch, we worked together long distance. She was amazing, handling the room reservations, park tickets, character breakfast, as well as airline tickets and special dinner reservations for 40 people from 10 different states. She not only arranged everything but she hosted the entire weekend there so I truly got to be the guest of honor who got to enjoy the entire disneyland adventure. It was an amazing birthday never to forget with memories made forever. Johanna won't disapointed you in your travel adventures, so give her a call and start planning your next vacation now.
