Maureen Johnson

Charlotte, North Carolina Travel Agent

An independent agent with What A Trip Vacations in Central Islip, NY, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Certified Travel Agent (C.T.A.)

At 5 years old, my father took me on a small Cessna plane flight where I got a bird's eye view of Long Island from above. In New York, I grew up in an environment hearing many different languages, experienced different traditions and cultures, and some of the greatest foods on earth!

The rest is history....I  became a Travel Agent because I wanted other people to have the same wonderful experiences that I had.  Being in the travel industry now for over twenty years, I have gained extensive knowledge in planning incredible and memorable vacations.  I am a true believer, that "You haven't really lived until you've traveled"!

I personally visit destinations to get first hand knowledge of the hotels, restaurants, historical sites, service, and the opportunities for interacting with the local people of the area.  I am affiliated with world-renowned tour companies that allow me to give my clients the best experience before, during and after they've traveled.  With my affiliates, I am able to get all of the details about your lodging, transportation, tours, and local events that are taking place during your visit.

The most recent destinations that I have visited are:

  • Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa
  • London, Paris, and Rome, Europe
  • Cancun, Mexico
  • Bermuda
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan, and Abu Simbel, Egypt

So, whether you desire a getaway for yourself, or to take a group to Africa, Europe, Asia, a Cruise, or anywhere in our world, I'm here to assist.  Allow me to help make your group an enjoyable experience, rather than a hassle.  Let me take the hassle out of managing your group, to ensure you get the most out of your adventure!

Smooth sailing, and not just because the seas were calm!

Reviewed By Tara - NYC | Traveled to
From the onset of our correspondence, Maureen was always on point with the necessary information. Her emails were always informative and concise which made the registration process easy to maneuver. If and when questions arose Maureen was easy to reach, but if she was unavailable at that time, she always got back to you as quickly as possible. Keeping track of 29 people going on a cruise probably wasn't as easy as Maureen made it seem, but she always had her i's dotted and her t's crossed. Her warm personality and caring manner made for seamless planning from the beginning to our day of departure. We all had a great time due to Maureen's professionalism and knowledge. I highly recommend Maureen Johnson to take care of your travel needs. I certainly plan on using her services again!

She helped navigate a monumental voyage

I am Mshauri Alexander with The Males Place, a community-based youth group in Charlotte. Ms. Maureen was integral in the planning of our annual Cultural and Educational Trip to Alabama this year. She was involved in every step and engaged in arranging a plethora of stops for our trip including, but not limited to, museums, restaurants, and lodging. Throughout the entire process she showed flexibility and initiative in coordination of a trip to Birmingham, Montgomery, Selma, Tuskegee and back. For her services, we are grateful to Ms. Maureen. We truly appreciate her professionalism and care.
