Custom itineraries throughout Italy are a specialt
Custom itineraries throughout Italy are a specialt

Before selling travel, I traveled the world as an executive for a Fortune 100 company.  I experienced people and places in a way that ordinary tourists don't get the opportunity to experience.  Since purchasing my agency in early 2008, I have continued to quench my traveling thirst through cruises in the Caribbean, New England, Alaska, and Europe.  I frequently visit and inspect all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.  I have discovered the joy and relaxation that a river cruise brings.  And I have continued to expand my list of countries visited to over 25.  In fact, custom itineraries throughout Europe are my specialty - I will put together the planes, trains, automobiles, tours, etc. for an amazing land-based experience that will exceed your expectations.


My job isn't just to get you the best "deal" - I am not an order taker.  My job is to use my knowlege of geography, suppliers, weather, airlines, cruise lines and ships, resorts and hotels, tour operators, etc., to ensure that you make an informed choice about your vacation.  A "deal" isn't a great value if you don't enjoy yourself once you get there!  There is a reason that it may be cheaper to go to a certain destination during a certain month - it may be their rainy season!   I make sure that you get the best value out of your vacation budget.  Not everyone can afford to stay at the top resorts, but it's my responsibility to make sure that you spend your money wisely and effectively, well-informed about the pros and cons. 

It's also my responsibility to take care of you from the moment we first meet, until you return home.  I want to build a long-term relationship with you - to earn your trust so that you will not only book this vacation with me, but all your vacations to come!  I make myself easily accessible to you and even if I'm traveling, our agency will take good care of you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Come explore the world with us at PICTURE THIS TRAVEL!

Great Trips

Reviewed By Lisa - St Joseph,, MO | Traveled to
Liane has made 2 wonderful trips for my family. Our first trip was a cruise, when my daughter graduated High School, which was amazing. The 2nd trip was with my husband and I and another couple, we went on a all inclusive trip to Mexico. She made both of these trips so easy for me, we asked all the questions and she took care of everything. We told her our budget and away she went. She was so honest telling us that the resort in Mexico she had never been to so she couldn't personally recommend, but I went on trip advisor and read all about it, which she advised. But after we returned, I told her it was a great resort, Which was Catalonia Royal Tulum. So now she can recommend to her friends and family. She does all necessary to make this so easy. I would highly recommend this lady to help with all your travel needs. We will be calling her again for sure.

Excellent Service

Reviewed By NKC. MO - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
I have used Liane several times for vacations to Europe - both with exceptional outcomes. The first being a honeymoon to Italy and most recently a Rhine River Cruise. She takes the time to get to know her customers to be able to tailor suggested destinations and activities based on your interests - providing several detailed options to ensure it meets your desires. She and her team are always very responsive and make traveling much easier by taking care of all the logistics ahead of time.

She listened to my needs.

Reviewed By Pink AngelLady - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Liane has planned 2 vacations for us and they were awesome. I dislike the process of planning a trip, so knowing that Liane will pay attention to my requests makes working with Liane an easy decision. It does not cost anymore to have an expert like Liane then to plan it yourself. So unless you love the process of planning a vacation, just hire Liane. I promise you won't regret it!!!

Travel planning expert!!!

Reviewed By Jeanne - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Liane planned a post graduation trip for me and my two sons and one friend when the oldest graduated from high school. It was the best experience ever!! She found a property in Mexico that made me very comfortable to let the two teenage boys (who could legally drink there) have some fun but also be controlled enough that I didn't have to be a nervous wreck. She was quick to respond with questions - available at crazy hours without batting an eye and the follow-up after the trip was excellent! One of the many things that impressed me is Liane, for Mexico at least, does not recommend a property she hasn't visited. That means she knows the place inside and out, and you can be comfortable that it's going to meet your needs. We will definitely use her for other big trips!

Expert in her area

Reviewed By Shannon - Kansas City, Mo | Traveled to
I've used Liane several times to plan spring break cruises and all-inclusive adult vacations. She's awesome! She knows her stuff, always has great advice, and is available to help you with any travel issues that might come up. My flight got cancelled at 5:30 am and I called her crying on the phone. Not only did she answer, but she did everything she could to get us a flight on a terrible air travel day. It's nice to have someone who has your back!

Liane opened our eyes to Europe!

Liane helped us plan one of the most important trips of our lives, our honeymoon! We decided together to embark on a cruise of the Mediterranean and sightseeing in four countries. Liane had all the tips, tricks and pointers that helped us get around in a foreign country like pros even though we had never been overseas. We had one of the most unforgettable trips full of amazing excursions and fabulous entertainment - we would HIGHLY recommend Liane to plan any trip, but especially a trip as important as this one was to us.

Liane makes sure you have everything you need and is there to help for the unexpected needs.

Reviewed By Mike D - Kansas City | Traveled to
Liane has helped us plan 2 trips to Europe. She found us great places to stay at reasonable prices. This can only be done from experience, because you never know what you are going to get in Europe just looking on the internet. Transportation showed up on time and very courteous. If you have an idea for what you want or where you want to go, she can help fill in the details and give you ideas for things to see and where to go that you don't want to miss. We ran into an unexpected issue while on the trip and she jumped right in to help and get us what we needed. That's very uncommon once you book with anyone else. The difference is that she loves what she does. She can provide first hand experience. And, she truly enjoys helping people to have a flawless experience.

Who knew Disneyworld was so complex!

Reviewed By Francis - Weston, MO | Traveled to
The Ins and outs of a trip to Disney World are amazingly complex, and if you don't have somebody explaining them to you and making sure you're making right decisions, it can be a nightmare! Liane was incredible at making sure that we knew all of the tips and tricks to make that vacation one that was great for our children and grandchildren! We stayed on property at Liane's advice and loved every minute of it! Thank you, Liane, for making it such a special trip!

Liane and Trina helped us coordinate a couple of different attempts at a cruise for our family and friends at the holidays. We went back and forth between Christmas and Thanksgiving and both Trina and Liane were wonderful. They offered us a variety of options and invested a lot of time and energy to make sure we had the "perfect" experience. They have taken such good care of us that we will use them again when we plan our next international trip!

Liane presented multiple options with full details and built us an awesome itinerary. This was the first time my wife had been out of the country.

Painless Planning with Exceptional Outcomes

Reviewed By Steve G - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Liane not only brings years of travel experience and first hand knowledge of her recommended destinations, she has an incredible gift of being highly organized and a very prompt communicator. Once we asked Liane for 3 or 4 ideas for our trip, she came back with 4 complete itineraries, total cost for each package and personal comments and recommendations regarding each destination. We have used Liane three times now; two all-inclusive vacations and one European cruise. All three were incredible and left us yearning to go back again.

Goes the extra mile and listens

Reviewed By John Travis - Kansas City | Traveled to
Liane has helped us with planning two trips. She helped us with a family vacation to Puerto Vallarta in 2012. On that trip, we had to reschedule everything by 1 day because of some family illness, and Liane pretty much spent the entire day doing everything she could to reschedule things, and we had exactly the same bookings and accommodation as we originally were supposed to have, and she pretty much saved our vacation for something we really were looking forward to. We also used Liane in March of 2015 to plan my wife's trip to visit my daughter in London and Liane took the time to listen to us, talk to my wife about what she wanted to do, and she nailed the itinerary. Liane listens to what you hope to do, and plans a wonderful experience because she pays attention to what you say. She advises well, and her service is superb. I would strongly recommend her to anyone, and we definitely plan to use her in the future. Liane plans experiences....not trips.

Liane is amazing at what she does...

Reviewed By AKBrooks - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Although my husband and I had a narrow budget, Liane never made us feel undervalued. We thought we would have to settle for whatever we could get, but Liane assured us that she would never book our stay in a place she wouldn't book for herself. She came through the for us and our honeymoon in Cancun was amazing and affordable. Two things we never thought we could have. Liane is a Rock Star!

Reviewed By Don - Kansas City | Traveled to
Liane has arranged several trips for me, ranging from simply getting a good round-trip air fare to multi-country plane-car-hotel-insurance propositions for open-jaw travel at difficult times of the year. Nothing phases her, and everything turns out exactly as planned. I no longer see any point in ever trying to arrange my own travel.

Takes the pain out of the process.

Reviewed By bstreich - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
You tell Liane what your interested in or she will ask you questions if you have no idea and make recommendations. If you don't like the options she proposes she will quickly turn around another set. When it comes for trip time she makes sure everything is taken care off and all you have to do is worry about being on time for the airport. We have gone through Liane several times and each trip has been a great. We have recommended her to everyone that asks who we went through for our trips.
