Leisure Travel Specialist

Do you enjoy long walks on the beach, but also want the excitement and adventure of something new?

Can’t decide between a river cruise and hiking in the mountains?  As your personal travel advisor, I can give you the best of both worlds with incredible hand-crafted itineraries personalized to you.  Here, I take the time to really get to know you and your family so that I can give you the most out of every trip.   

How do I do that? 

I begin by curating the perfect itinerary for each client--whether ocean or river cruise, train, air, or land.

I give each client personalized service—and yes, they return home with amazing memories!

I have been a travel agent for 30 years. I am a destination specialist for South Pacific, Western Europe, The Bahamas, The Caribbean & Bermuda. I cruise frequently and specialize in making the most of your cruise experience! Some of my favorite destinations are French Polynesia, The Caribbean, Eastern and Western Med, Baltic, Aegean, and Central American waters!

I have traveled throughout the US, Canada, Bahamas, Caribbean, Turks & Caicos, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Monte Carlo, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Italy, Greece, Montenegro, Russia, Turkey, & South Pacific (yes my family & I are travel geeks!).

These experiences aren’t just words on a resume. They are hundreds of special, beautiful memories I share with my family.  We still laugh about so many stories that came to life for us on these trips, whether the time we ate an amazing meal with a Mayan family in gorgeous Mexico or the time we saw an incredible play on Broadway or had dinner at the Eiffel Tower. All of these are things my children will remember with fondness for many years to come.        

There are a lot of risks in travel and it is important to me to create the right experience for my client so that it meets and exceeds their expectations. I can deliver a completely customized experience from airline, hotels, shared or private transfers, excursions, museum tickets & private and/or group guides, wine tastings, day tours, and more.

If you love to travel and want to work with someone truly in love with travel, then you’ve come to the right place. Contact me at Elite Adventures!

Fantastic travel agent!

Reviewed By Travel demon - Columbia, SC | Traveled to Europe
I can't say enough good things about Michelle Varner ! We have traveled extensively with her and followed her recommendations with pleasure. She it is very thorough and thinks of every detail. When we have had problems, we call her and she solves them. Flight canceled? Call Michelle and get the rescheduling info without the long line! I never used a travel agent before, but I will never do without one again! I have recommended her to friends and family, and we all use her. She asks good questions to find out what you like, then sends hotel and excursion recommendations based on your tastes. Not only is she efficient, but she is sweet and easy to work with. We love her!
