Ann Ronan

San Juan Capistrano, California Travel Agent

An independent agent with Cruises & Tours, Unlimited in Jacksonville, FL, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

River Cruise and Group Travel Specialist

I named my business after the town I live in. San Juan Capistrano is a small town with a proud heritage including a California mission and original adobes from the 1770's. You may have heard of us...the swallows return every year from Argentina in March and then return to Argentina in October.

I walk into our vibrant village daily where I run into my neighbors who own and patronize the small, local businesses. We take care of each other. I want you to have the same experience no matter where you live... I provide my travel consulting services in this spirit.

I specialize in river cruises, destination weddings & honeymoons and group travel. I've taken many cruises, including river cruising, traveled throughout Europe, the Caribbean and Mexico and many U.S. cities and destinations including New England, Florida, and California.

I am of Irish descent and love introducing others to this amazing country and leading tours of Ireland's many sacred sites. I am an avid baseball fan (Red Sox!) and am on a quest to see all the major league stadiums - have visited 14 of them as of October 2015.

Reach me at 949-702-3977 for a complimentary consultation to begin planning your next vacation!

"Ann made my fiancé and me feel so comfortable and welcome. She paid such attention to detail with our budget, what were interested in doing, and the things that were most important to us. She planned a 9-day vacation to Scotland beautifully and included everything that was important for us to do and see, well within our budget! I feel like we didn't have to do anything but answer a few questions and we had our dream honeymoon."

The trip was just fabulous. Matt and I fell in love with Kauai. The St. Regis exceeded all of our expectations. I cannot say enough about our trip! Thank you again for all of your assistance!

A truly full-service travel agent

Reviewed By Picky trip planners - Orange County, California | Traveled to
We've had help from Ann on two trips and there will likely be more. The first one was a few years ago -- a somewhat complicated arrangement involving some separate plans for our college-aged daughter and a portion of the trip for three of us (parents and daughter) -- some of it on our own in multiple locations in Australia and then finishing with a cruise around New Zealand over the Christmas holiday. Ann was very accommodating in supplying information on a variety of options (hotels, transportation, sightseeing, schedule, cruiseline...), patient with our deliberations, requests for numerous details, changes in plans... And when we returned, she managed to get us a refund on a baggage overcharge by an airline mid-stream in our trip. Our second trip is to Russia this summer -- a river cruise, including a pre-package in Moscow and a post-package in Helsinki, Finland. At our request, Anne provided a wealth of information about options meeting very specific requirements time-wise and comfort-wise, and helped us design the best trip for us. She "fixed" an awkward return airline itinerary originally assigned by the cruise company. Her advice on trip insurance and visa application was very helpful. In addition to her expertise and responsiveness, she is simply a delight to work with and obviously enjoys her work.

Dream honeymoon

Reviewed By Honeymooner - San Juan Capistrano, CA | Traveled to
Thank you Ann! We appreciate all of the hard work you put into planning our honeymoon. You really took a lot of weight off my shoulders knowing that I also had to plan a wedding too! You were spectacular with communication and listened to everything we wanted in our dream honeymoon. We are so excited for this trip. :-) Adabel Mercado

An amazing and knowledgeable agent and a great friend

Reviewed By James - Orange County California | Traveled to
For my Honeymoon, Ann steered us toward amazing locations (A light house in Northern Norway) and she tirelessly advised us about the preparation and implementation of our honeymoon.com site. Furthermore, she has planned trips that more than accommodate the needs of older persons as well as my own interests which tend toward adventure travel. I will continue to consult with Ann about all of my future trips because she has added so much to the travel experiences of my family.
