Eiffel Tower, Paris

Being in the travel industry the past couple years has really opened my eyes to some amazing new experiences and has also allowed me to create amazing new lifelong friendships. With a background in Hospitality Business from Michigan State I am pretty familiar with the ins and outs of the tourism industry which has been extremely beneficial thus far in my career as a travel consultant. It also helps to have a strong passion for your work, which I do!

My biggest passion is for European travel whether it is planning my clients dream vacation or travelling there personally. Some of my favorite places I've been fortunate enough to visit are England, France, Ireland and soon to be Croatia. Being able to walk where many of the "greats" have walked, experience the culture, food, and see the sites that are sometimes thousands of years old are unique memories to each traveler that no one can take away from you. I want to help make this dream happen for you.

As your travel advocate I would assist you in all aspects of your booking including before, during, and after travel. My goal is to create unique and inspiring travel itineraries that exceed your expectations and to provide you with top-notch personalized service. Quality personal service is hard to find these days especially when booking online. We are here as agents to turn that stigma around. Why trust the Internet with your hard earned savings when you can have a personal guide along the way? You only get one chance to make your travel plans so leave it in the hands of something you can trust!

An experience of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Angie - Grand Ledge, MI | Traveled to England ~ Europe
Alyssa took over our booking for our trip to Great Britain a few months before our trip was scheduled. She was extremely communicative, quick to respond to any and all inquiries leading up to, and even during, our trip! She went above and beyond to make sure everything we needed was taken care of. She was even able to book us a VIP Harry Potter Studio Tour package within our preferred time frame with pretty short notice. I would highly recommend her!

Beyond Our Expectations!

Reviewed By Kendra - Ludington, Michigan | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
This was our first trip to Europe. Alyssa did an amazing job linking a pre-planned portion of our trip and she added in additional areas we wanted to visit. She booked our flights, hotels, train tickets, and a walking tour. Our accommodations were outstanding in terms of their location, breakfast offering, and service. Alyssa really took the anxiety out of planning this trip. She was responsive and thorough. She listened to what we needed and researched what would fit best. We are already thinking about our next adventure. Thanks so much Alyssa for helping to make this such a beautiful experience!

I had a Blast!

Reviewed By Jill W. - Crest Hill, IL | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Alyssa was very knowledgeable and great at answering all my questions (and I ask a lot of questions). She also responded in a timely manner (usually same day). She was also available any time of day to help me. She also helped file a claim with the travel ins on a flight issue that we encountered (but still made our cruise on-time).

Alyssa is the travel consultant you need & want!

Reviewed By Kristin - Portage, MI | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Alyssa was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make sure this was a vacation we will always remember. She was very thorough and organized. From planning unforgettable excursions to transportation to lodging, EVERYTHING was taken care of so that we could just enjoy our trip without stress. She was able to take our dream vacation and make it a reality. She answered all of our questions and provided helpful suggestions during the planning process. When an unanticipated family emergency cut our trip a bit short, Alyssa immediately worked (after business hours) to ensure that we were able to get home as soon as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Alyssa to friends, family, and co-workers...in fact I already have. If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would. She was truly that awesome and I plan on booking another vacation with Alyssa as my travel consultant.

A truly exceptional vacation designed by Alyssa

Reviewed By Sal - Dewitt, Mi | Traveled to Texas ~ USA
I first sat with Alyssa for about an hour with a barrage of indecisive questions and vague requests. I knew we needed a vacation but did not want to go conventional. After a long chat and an additional 6 separate email volleys, amazing Alyssa set us up on a road trip up the I 35 corridor through Texas. Corpus Christi to Dallas in 8 days. Lots of things to see from the USS Lexington and Texas State Aquarium and South Padre Island, then a short drive to San Antonio & the Beautiful river walk and Alamo. Then another short drive to Austin and it’s night life and then finally to Dallas for that great town. She picked Excellent hotels in perfect spots. Although we had a pretty open itinerary, the resorts and hotels that she specifically picked for us were amazing and super close to most of the action and attractions. They were clean, great staff, and hassle free end to end.
So thankful for Alyssa’s help! She took the stress out of everything!

Amazing trip to a beautiful place

Reviewed By JMB - Grand Ledge, MI | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
She is knowledgeable and efficient. I explained that I wanted to stay near several different cities in accommodations within walking distance of restaurants and pubs without being among too much city noise (this seemed like a difficult request to me) and she found several options quickly that fit exactly what I was hoping to do. While we were there, we just enjoyed ourselves. My husband kept commenting that the trip was very well planned, with very little stress.

Alyssa is the best! She works so quickly and stays on the ball. I had a lot of changes and requests for my trip and she handled them all with ease. She also allowed me to text her so I was able to answer questions and communicate with her quickly and efficiently.
We traveled through London and road-tripped through Ireland. Every B&B was fantastic and the locations of each place were so convenient for exploring and getting to know the town. Couldn't have done this trip without her expertise, organization, and help.

An Oasis

Reviewed By Jenna - Mulliken, Mi | Traveled to Mexico
When Alyssa gave us the book of resorts to pick from, Valentin was not one of them. Alyssa told us that this place would be an amazing place for our honeymoon and we took a chance. When we arrived it was beyond our expectations. It's an oasis here and it's so beautiful.

I'm so glad Alyssa found this beautiful place for us and we are already planning our anniversary here next year.

Please let Alyssa Peterson be your travel agent and she will plan the vacation of your dreams ??

amazing trip to Ireland

Alyssa did a wonderful job planning my trip with my husband to Ireland! We followed her recommendations and different options. We drove from Dublin airport to Galway, and then down to Killarney, then back to Dublin. Stayed in each city for 2 days each, and Alyssa booked tours in each place. Everything was fantastic and an unforgettable experience. She was very easy to work with and was always available and on top of everything!

Leave the planning to the professional!

Reviewed By Scott - St. Johns, MI | Traveled to Sydney ~ Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Remember the "old days" of using a travel agent? Well, guess what: those folks still exist, and if anything, they work even HARDER to get your business in the current climate of Expedia, Travelocity, and the like. We had to plan a major trip from Michigan to Australia, and the details were becoming overwhelming. I only had to place ONE CALL to Alyssa, and she was on it. Within days, she had a full itinerary prepared for us, and when I wanted some adjustments made, she quickly put those in place as well. She always answered the phone, and quickly responded to emails. Seemingly no detail was too small or insignificant for her to tackle, which served to lift a huge weight off of our shoulders. She took care of two unseasoned travelers as if we were royalty, and any future travel plans we make will definitely be through her.
