Group/Family Travel with over 35 years experience
Years ago I realized after I interviewed with Delta Airlines for a stewardess position that just helping travelers while in flight, and being able to fly around the world would not be enough for me. Even before I was a seasoned traveler myself I knew that once I had visited exotic destinations I would want to share my knowledge with others. It was then that I began looking into Travel Agent Schools. It was 1982 when I attended a small school lead by two extremely seasoned travel agents. The age of travel back then was not the cyber world we know today. We looked up flights not on a computer but in Official Airline Guides that were mailed to us once a month. We hand wrote airline tickets and actually spoke on the phone to book flights, hotels and rental cars. You see, I feel blessed that I essentially “grew up” in this era of travel arranging. It was because of this hands on approach and face-to-face contact that I had with my customers back then that shaped me into the attentive agent that I am today. Focusing on client satisfaction and repeat clients was our main concern and this is still my goal today. Through the years I have watched families on groups I have escorted discover not only the destinations around them but also each other as they made lasting memories. I have had clients return from vacations that I have arranged saying how they have always wanted to do more than just “go” somewhere, but actually experience the destination, and I helped them do just that. I continue to make it my quest to find the out of ordinary things for a family to do while on vacation, something that will give them that Ah Ha moment of their trip. Research and knowing which vendors to use to provide you with personal one of a kind experiences is something that is a given when booking your travel through me. No detail will be left out. Why trust Google when you can have someone handle all of the details and give you personal insight into training through Europe, ferrying over to the Isle of Capri and finding the best Pensions in Italy. Do you know the best places to swim in cenotes in the Yucatan…? I do, and I even have the best tour operator to take you there. If you yourself are a well-seasoned traveler just tell me what you are use to and I will take care of it for you. Finding a villa cluster on St. John for the family group who wanted to be catered too on a beautiful beach was a challenge I enjoyed completely. Booking back-to-back Princess cruises for one of my well-seasoned Princess cruisers with a land package in between, allowed me to really stretch my expertise. My services no matter how long it takes to complete your vacation planning cost you nothing! I, like all travel professionals get paid not by you but by the vendors that are used. These vendors have a commission percentage built into their product, when you book through them directly; they just make a larger profit. By allowing me to handle every detail of your vacation for you I am able to get paid by the vendor. I am looking forward to speaking with you to begin planning an epic journey for you. Call me; I’m a lot friendlier than a computer screen full of facts.
Group leaders can travel for FREE
Family travel is my favorite!
I am all about helping someone who loves to travel and has lots of friends travel for FREE!
Did you know that some cruise lines and tour operators give credit to group leaders? Well they do, with a certain amount of people traveling credits are given and could possibly add up so that your way on the tour or cruise could be totally covered.
Are you a member of a garden club, country club, church group or just a neighborhood of friends.... then why not do a group trip.
All you need to do is contact me, we set up what you want to do and then you just talk it up to the members of your group or neighborhood. I handle all the bookings, payments and correspondence with the travelers.

Thanks so much, it has been a pleasure!
Best Trip Ever
Would definitely recommend her for planning a trip for 2 or 23! When four six year old girls come off the ship chanting BEST TRIP EVER, you know it was a success!
Joy, thanks for giving me the opportunity for the last few years of helping you play "Santa" for your family vacation. From planning to hearing how they responded to the news of where they would be going after the present was opened has been great! It has been a pleasure sending you all to San Antonio, Disney World and now on the BEST TRIP EVER, your family Disney Cruise!
Can't wait for our trip
Glad to call you friend, and ready to book an EPIC get-a-way for you and the hubby soon! Thanks for the review! P.S. We've come a long way since hand written airline tickets!
