Travel is our passion! With that said, we immerse ourselves in training and researching ALL kinds of travel. It has opened our eyes to areas of the world that we would never have considered for travel, along with niches of travel that appeal to everyone’s taste. Our job is to bring our knowledge and love to travel to your vacation and apply our experience and knowledge to create the perfect trip. We provide a personal service that you cannot get online through a booking engine like Expedia or Bookit. We know that everyone has a budget and a variety of preferences. While we can book and provide any kind of travel and vacation destination, we are very experienced in river cruising, smaller ocean cruising and all-inclusive resorts. We chose to concentrate on those, the main reason being the value that we feel you get with these types of trips. They may have a higher price point, but the value they offer when compared to other types of travel becomes obvious when compared.
