Active and Adventure travel is my specialty and passion. I’ve completed the Travel Leaders extensive Active and Adventure travel program and have personally experienced adventure travel myself in both Ireland and Japan. Active and adventure travel can mean different things to different people but to me it can be as simple as immersing yourself in the local culture and giving back to the local community. There are so many different ways to experience adventure travel! There are tour companies that offer experiences that range from being “basic”, luxurious, to completely active tours that will keep you going all day. They specialize in offering accommodations that give back to the local economy, offer real life experiences, and use local guides who can navigate you to the best places to eat. My goal as your adventure travel consultant is to guide you towards the experience that fits for your wants and needs. In my own travel experience, this has been my favorite way to travel! You really get to experience and witness the true culture of each destination you visit.

"It isn't always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts. It even breaks your heart. But that's okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind."-Anthony Bourdain

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!

Best trip yet!

Reviewed By Emily - Houston, TX | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
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.

amazing trip to Ireland

Reviewed By raggarwal - Naperville | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
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!

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 ??

I enjoyed working with Alyssa, she is very friendly and professional and made sure that all the arrangements were set and ready for us before we left for our trip. We added on a few extra days and Alyssa did a great job planning it for us. She was available via phone, email and text. Our trip was very enjoyable and I would recommend using Alyssa as the travel agent for any trips. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it was very special. She checked up with us after the trip to make sure there weren't any problems. We did have one minor problem and Alyssa quickly had it resolved for us.

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.
