My Travels and Experience

Beautiful Lucerne
Beautiful Lucerne

My travels have enriched my life by giving me the opportunity to experience new places and cultures, to taste new foods and wines and to bring home fond memories. .
From the Tuscan Hills of Italy to the Great Bazaar in Turkey, from the pubs of Ireland to the sun drenched beaches of Mexico, each destination has something special to offer. With so many fantastic destination choices, choosing the vacation that is perfect for you can be challenging. My goal is to offer you expert advice along with first hand experience to make your vacation planning stress free. Whether you want to honeymoon on a secluded beach in the Caribbean, act like a kid at Disney World or sip limoncello in Positano I want to make your experience the best it can be. My children inherited my love of travel and I have had the privilege of planning their Destination Weddings. In the past years I have assisted many couples in planning their own special day. Whether it is a ceremony with just the bride and groom or a group of 100 guests every wedding should be a beautiful and memorable event.

Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean

Growing up with Italian grandparents instilled in me a love of everything Italian. I have visited Italy numerous times and each time I find something new to appreciate and share with my clients. I have also traveled to Turkey, Greece, France, Spain, Poland, Germany and Ireland and the awesome cities of Vienna, Prague and Budapest. Mexico is my favorite spot for a beach getaway and I have visited over 30 times. Tequilla anyone? I have also enjoyed many of the Caribbean islands including Punta Cana and Aruba. My first hand experience is a bonus for my clients.

River cruising has been extremely popular in recent years and those that have sailed always return with rave reviews. I decided it was time for me to experience river cruising and come to my own conclusions. In May, I sailed on the Seine from Paris to Normandy's Landing Beaches on Avalon's...

Can't Imagine a Better Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Jay and Barbara - Westerville, Ohio | Traveled to Milan ~ Italy ~ Europe
Michelle has arranged several trips for us over the last 5 years ranging from a winter getaway to Riviera Maya, an Alaska cruise with land tours, a 10-day guided tour to Tuscany from Rome, and most recently, a (perfect) two-week trip to northern Italy.

We can't say enough good things about Michelle. She knows her business well enough to suggest worthwhile options about where to go, where to stay, and how to get there. Every itinerary she's done for us has been flawless. She pays attention to the details, and always follows up.

We've recommended Michelle to family and friends, and can't imagine ever planning another trip without her.

Arranges Memorable Vacations

Reviewed By TropicBon - Powell, OH | Traveled to Panama Canal ~ Panama ~ Central America
We have used Michelle's services for many years. She's arranged an escorted tour in Italy, several cruises, and many vacations to Sandals all-inclusive resorts for us. She takes the time to listen to what you desire in an ideal vacation, and then researches the best options to book a memorable vacation at the best price. She has traveled extensively and can draw on her own personal experience in making recommendations.

Probably the most valuable part of using Michelle's services is that you know you have a reliable person who has your back in case unexpected issues come up during travel. One year we were returning from a Sandals resort in Jamaica. Our phones were turned off due to high cost of international cell phone service, but we had wifi at the airport and could access our email. That's when we learned that our flight was delayed. She kept in touch with us about more delays, which was most appreciated.

We would highly recommend Michelle Karn for all of your travel nee

Best Trip

Reviewed By Arsenal Guy - Dublin, Ohio | Traveled to Mexico
Michelle was terrific from day one! She was extremely easy to work with on my family trip. She was very responsive and knowledgeable about our trip location, fly info, and etc. I personally have never worked with a travel leaders in the past. Any fear was out the door after a quick 5-minute face to face with Michelle.

Moving forward I will let Michelle do the planning of future trips and I will just claim all the great reviews from my family. Highly recommend.

Spectacular Experience

Reviewed By Ken - Westerville OH | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Michelle listened carefully to our interests and helped us pick a tour that was perfect for us. She was an effective advocate for us with the tour company and the airline. No detail escaped her notice. She reminded us about visas and made sure that our fights were reasonably timed. We will always remember how much we experienced on a tour that was comprehensive, yet not too hectic.

We have used Michelle for many trips, all of them memorable. Michelle always comes through for us; she is the best.

I have worked with Michelle 15 years now. The very first time was for our honeymoon and we have had a wonderful relationship and partnership sense. Michelle is very thorough and listen's to her customers needs, wants, and desires, as well as consideration for budget. Over the years she has planned all of my very special memories with my husband, family, & friends.

Michelle has the special touch to make every travel journey more than just a vacation, more than just a dream come true, are experiences are simply amazing and breath taking. We are blessed that we can travel to various places like---Mexico, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Greek Isles, Disney World, Phoenix, Hawaii, and many other destinations.
