Agent specializing in bucket list travel

I specialize in bucket list travel. Whether your bucket list is leisure trip to Europe, or a honeymoon or anniversary trip, or an all inclusive vacation in Mexico or the Caribbean. Maybe you prefer an amazing River Cruise or life changing African Safari. For Europe, I particularly love Paris and Italy. For All inclusive, I love Jamaica and Riviera Maya area in Mexico. I have a personal passion to share travel with youth and groups. I work with Girl Scout groups to help them develop their bucket lists for travel. I work with multi generational families to help them create amazing memories that last a lifetime. But ultimately, it is about YOUR bucket list trip. I listen to you and your story behind the trip you want and what will make it special for you.

When our son graduated form high school, we did a family trip to Italy. One week was spent staying in a villa in Tuscany. Such an amazing week. Our villa was hundreds of years old.

7 Weeks, 13 Countries, 2 Tours and 1 Cruise

Reviewed By Mary D - Monroe, WA | Traveled to Europe
Michelle helped me put together a 7 week trip to Europe . We were able to collaborate on my trip. She booked Iceland completely, tours and hotel. Perfect! She arranged our Baltic cruise and made sure we knew what to expect. We even got an upgrade to our room because the cruise line likes to "keep their agents happy" (their words). Michelle gave suggestions for trip insurance and looked into visa requirements and car rental. We booked a tour in Scotland. Finally Michelle looked over our plans for our entire trip (flight connections etc.) and put together an itinerary including all confirmation numbers for hotels, flight information and tour information. On this itinerary was included contact information for Michelle and friends or family members who might like to contact us. It made our 7 week trip so much more enjoyable having all this information in one place. Well done! Best trip of our lives! 7 weeks, 13 countries, 2 tours, 1 cruise. Enumerable smiles and WOW moments!

So fun to help you two on this amazing bucket list trip.

An amazing adventure!

Reviewed By Mary J - Monroe, WA | Traveled to Philippines ~ East and Southeast Asia
Although Michelle's experience in Asia is limited, she was very willing and able to help us organize our adventure. She booked our flight and provided web sites and information for visas, health concerns and trip insurance.She booked our cruise with G Adventures and assured us they were an amazing company to travel with.

Our trip was amazing and without incident. She stepped back when I said we could make some parts of our trip plans. She then reviewed the plans I had made to make sure I didn't overlook anything.

Part of the fun of working with Michelle is that she is always excited to share and learn about any place in the world.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Michelle Wicks Cypher responded:
Thank you Mary. You are a joy to work with. I love working with travelers, not tourists and you and Andre are true travelers. Glad the experience was a great one.

Family trip to Italy was fantastic!

Reviewed By A Grateful Family of Five - Snohomish, Washington | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We had a fabulous spring break vacation in Italy with our three sons. Michelle was solid perfection in arranging the details including complicated flight schedules for the five of us - - not originating from the same airport or returning home to the same airport. Michelle's scheduling was fantastic, her communications with us was top-notch, and the price point was excellent. She has our enthusiastic recommendation!

Thank you Beth! It was fun to see your pictures from your trip. Looking forward to our own Italy vacation!

A vacation personal assistant!

Reviewed By Rene - Gold Bar | Traveled to Zambia ~ Africa
I am the person in our family who organizes, and does everything. We were planning the trip of a lifetime and had a huge fiasco with some tickets we had bought from an airline that we found on-;line. I complained on facebook and was referred to Michelle through some friends. I am a convert! I will be using her services again for sure. She is like a travel personal assistant.. She dealt with all the issues big and small that came up. What a load off of me.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Michelle Wicks Cypher responded:
Thank you Rene. It was such a pleasure to be a part of such a great trip that you and your family did to Africa. I tell people all the time that working with me doesn't guarantee no problems, but it means you have someone in your corner working on those problems for you.

easiest business trip

Reviewed By Richard - Monroe WA | Traveled to Washington ~ USA
I was very pleased with the attention to detail that Michelle displayed. Even though my trip was only a short distance from where I live Michelle gave me instructions of 3 different ways to get to my destination as well as directions from my hotel to my conference venue. She found a hotel that was comfortable affordable as well as convenient to my event. I would utilize her again as well as recommend her.

Tropical Vacation in Paradise

My husband I had never been to Mexico, and i was nervous about it due to our food allergies.

Awesome Banff Trip!

Reviewed By Joe - Monroe, WA | Traveled to Banff ~ Alberta ~ Canada
Michelle was a pleasure to work with, really went above and beyond to make sure our trip to Banff was a good one! When I found out my GPS didn't work in Canada I was relieved to find a printed out map with printed directions to our hotel from the airport! She had already thought of that ahead of time. Would recommend!

Michelle Wicks Cypher responded:
I am so glad that the printed map came in handy. I find that it is often helpful to have actual paper copies of things you need . So glad you had a great trip!

ACL Was a Hit!

Reviewed By McKenzie & Nick - Bellevue, WA | Traveled to Austin ~ Texas ~ USA
Michelle is very responsive and thorough. When she planned out trip to Austin City Limits music festival, we gave her many LIMITS and she came through. We had a small budget and waited a little too long to plan the trip, but she was able to accommodate us well. She even made sure our hotel was on a bus line (something we felt wasn't important) so we didn't want to walk far. I would recommend her to anyone looking to travel!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Michelle Wicks Cypher responded:
Thanks McKenzie! It was fun helping to make that trip a reality for you.

Michelle found us event tickets that were an upgrade to what we were trying to buy and also handled our transportation needs.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

It was fun to be a part of making that Hall of Fame trip a reality. So glad it worked for everyone!

Fun in Jamaica

Michelle planned our trip to Jamaica last year and without her help it would not have been as great as it turned out. She listened to what we both wanted and offered us trips that met what we wanted in a Vacation. My husband and I have separate ideas of what is relaxing and fun and she was able to plan a trip that met both of our ideas. Michelle also explained all of the traditions of the area we were going to so we were prepared. She also ensured all details were all taken care of such as transportation to and from the airport and our side tours we wanted to take. She also made sure we were prepared with everything we needed at the airport so going through customs was very easy with no delays. She also took the time to find the best offer to keep the trip within our budget without sacrificing the things we wanted to do.
