Romance and Family Travel Specialist

The idea of travel is seductive. You see yourself carousing the streets of Paris, tipsy with wine and love.  Or lying sun-drenched on a Caribbean white-sand beach sipping native rum and fresh pineapple juice over shaved ice. However, the reality of travel can be much different. And factor in the age of global pandemics, a knowledgeable travel advisor is the safest way to book your journey.

In a world of information overload and automated responses to questions for clarification, I am here to help you make sense of the nonsense. Life's a trip and trips are meant to be taken, not stressed over. And travel agents really do still exist for a reason - we never went away because of the value we add to your experience.  I consider myself unique in that the best way to describe me is a Travel Therapist because I take the time to get to know you and understand your travel dreams and expectations so that I can take that picture you have in your head about your adventure and guide you through the myriad of options that will best fit your specific needs and desires. 

I love the internet and use it every day for all the same things you do.  But what I would never do -- and what I don't think anyone should ever do -- is use the internet in place of an experienced travel planner.  To me, you and your trip are important.  Online, you are just plain data. 

Like you, I love travelling. I've been to almost all 50 states (including Hawaii), most of the Caribbean (Aruba, Grenada, Puerto Rico, all 3 US Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, St. Martin, Dominica, Barbados, Martinique, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Grand Cayman, the Bahamas, Antigua, and Turks & Caicos), Europe (Netherlands, Germany, France, Czechia, Hungary, and Italy), the Middle East (Israel and Jordan), Asia (Thailand and Taiwan), and all over Mexico, Canada and even Oceania (Guam, Yap and Palau).

The last thing I want to tell you about me is that while I have planned travel all over the world for clients, I specialize in Destination Weddings, Honeymoons, other Romance Travel as well as  Family Vacations. As an avid scuba diver, I'm also able to curate your dive vacations.  And I've done a tone of it - all over the Caribbean, Red Sea and Oceania.

Traveling the world, experiencing other cultures and new adventures is my idea of heaven.  So, if this is what you're into, let's get you into travel therapy ASAP and let the journey begin!

Beth is knowledgeable and patient providing a great trip to Africa!

Reviewed By Gail - Indianapolis | Traveled to
Planning a trip to Africa to include a safari should be left to a professional. Beth took it one step further! She was able to coordinate our sightseeing in Cape Town and Safari in Krueger with a group out of Kentucky who actually grew up in Africa. Beth was also sensitive around planning personal time for us to spend with our daughter, working in Cape Town. She provided a perfect balance and was very patient with our multitude of questions and changes!

Aw, Tiffany - thank you so much. You've been such a loyal client (and now friend) since my very beginning when I first planned your honeymoon. It has been one of the best joys of my job working with you and all of your friends you have brought my way so I can take care of them too.

QUICK AND EASY !!

Reviewed By Jan - Chicago, Il. | Traveled to
When we needed a GREAT GETAWAY with very specific requirements on very short notice, Beth was fabulous!! Not only did she know immediately the resort we needed, but took care of all the details within hours. I was impressed with her choice of options, with clear knowledge of what each would offer us. She made it soooo easy. We had a wonderful vacation, with all that she promised. Beth is professional, efficient, experienced, yet feels like a best friend! I will use her again and would recommend her very highly. Thank you Beth!!

Incredible service from start to finish!

Reviewed By George and Jacquie - Orlando Florida | Traveled to Mexico
A friend of mine referred me to Beth, as my soon to be wife and I were planning our honeymoon trip. Honestly, we were very confused about where to go and Beth spend the necessary time to understand what we are looking for and then offer a wide variety of selections. She continued to narrow it down until it was the perfect vacation/honeymoon. We couldn't of been more satisfied And the level of service was extraordinary. From two days before the flight, to after we've arrived at our hotel, just constant checking into making sure we were satisfied. The airline even made a mistake with the seating on one of the flights and she handled all that too! I don't think I will ever book another trip by myself. It's so much nicer to have it handled by a pro! Beth, it is our pleasure to write this. Thank you, the Philbecks :)

Simply the best!

Reviewed By Kathy - Gurnee, il | Traveled to
We have worked with Beth in planning three vacations and will continue to in the future! We have made some great memories on a family trip to Sweden and a couple's trip to Turks and Caicos and have another family trip to Norway in July. We love that Beth is so carefully considerate of our preferences and that each trip has been customized and personalized for us which can be a challenge with multi-generational travel. As an added bonus, we have made a great friend!
