Travel As Unique As You Are!

I have had a passion for travel and exploring the world since I was a child.   I have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations experiencing amazing cultures and events.   My goal is to provide you the best service utilizing my experiences and training to ensure that we book you on a trip as "Unique as You are".  I have completed specialized training with Travel Leaders taking these in-depth certifications coursed in Adventure Travel and Luxury Travel.I also have specialist verifications with Cunard Cruise, Disney, Celebrity Cruise, Un-Cruise Adventures to name a few.

 I have been lucky enough to travel across the world and I look forward to sharing my knowledge of it with you so that we can find you the perfect vacation for you. If there is an area that I have not been to, I have the connections to gather information and find you great things to do and wonderful places to stay. My goal is to ensure that every trip you book with me is a trip of a lifetime.

I have recently received my Active & Adventure Specialist certification. Adventure travel is a wonderful way to see the world and learn about cultures, such as Cuba. I have many options that will actually put you into a new culture. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit a small community in Africa where the community members live in small huts? What about going on a hike to Machu Picchu? These are just two examples of many amazing Adventure Trips that I can book for you. Additionally, I am also a member of the Adventure Travel industry, this will give us the opportunity to find you a trip you will never forget.

I look forward to working with you so I can book you on a vacation as unique as you are!

No worry travel

Reviewed By Teri - Fresno, CA | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Mark was very easy to work with. At the beginning of planning my trip, I really didn't know what, or how I wanted it to flow. He patiently listened to me as I discussed multiple scenarios. After I verbalized, he had a few suggestions and everything came together. Considering my needs, insurance and additional travel arrangemnts were made. He booked me the perfect hotel in Glasgow.
Before, and post trip, he was in contact. All went well.
Just a note for myself. Before booking a flight I will ask about lay over times and possible alternate route. Although I don't think we could of improved the time involved, total time on days of travel were LONG
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Stress free adventuring.

Reviewed By Aaron - California | Traveled to Chile ~ South America
Mark is a very involved, professional, and personable agent. From initial encounter onward, he was a pleasure to work with. Every step of the way -- booking, boarding, return, etc. -- Mark actively kept in touch via text and phone calls to ensure my trip was going smoothly. I'd highly recommend him as a travel agent and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Great experience

Reviewed By JT - Tampa, FL | Traveled to Caribbean
Mark did a great job booking our cruise and keeping us up to date with the details as the vacation approached. He also provided all of our documents in a convenient folder with some fun extras too! I have my next three cruises booked through him and you should too!

Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By jhullplu - Corvallis, OR | Traveled to Patagonia ~ Chile ~ South America
This trip could not have happened without Mark. We knew where we wanted to go but with our busy schedules we were having difficulty putting it all together, making flight arrangements and timing it so everything worked. Within several hours of discussing the trip we wanted with Mark we had our reservations, airplane tickets and were set for the trip of a lifetime. He took all the stress out of arranging travel so we could focus on the joy of it. Mark responded to questions rapidly and put all concerns to rest and even checked in on us shortly before we left for our trip to make sure everything was going smoothly. We also really appreciated the well organized and labeled travel packet he sent us. We plan on having Mark involved in all our future travel experiences.

40 Years Strong

Reviewed By Rox - Minneapolis | Traveled to Tulum ~ Mexico ~ Mexico
Mark was great from the beginning in helping us plan the amount of days to travel down to Mexico. Any time we emailed with questions he was quick to respond and very helpful. When I wanted new pricing he was easy to work with and ask questions to. My only negative was not knowing when the balance of the trip needed to be paid. I'm not sure if I just didn't pay attention or wasn't reminded but another person on the trip informed me of when the deadline was. I would definitely use Mark again and actually some friends have already used him to book their travel.
