About Us

In today’s world where many people can book their own vacation with an online, impersonal website, we listen to your wants, needs, and desires to help you pick, plan, and book a vacation of a lifetime.

At Travel by Jon & Jo’El, we know that planning that trip of a lifetime can be overwhelming and time-consuming.

Flights, transfers, reservations or any of the planned experiences can easily go awry, causing your vacation to be full of stress and frustration.

It should not be that way!

When we plan vacations for our clients they feel confident, relaxed and reassured.

Our white glove, one time professional planning fee includes concierge travel planning from the time you hire us until the time you return home. Allowing you to sit back and relax while we put together a vacation that is exactly what you want.

Your vacation starts the day you start working with us.

  • We create an unforgettable vacation for our clients, by taking care of all the details.
  • We use experience from our own travels and our knowledge of the industry to tailor your vacation to exceed your expectations.
  • We believe that a vacation should be exciting, enriching, and memorable. We specialize in luxury travel.
  • Luxury travel is not a price tag, more so it is experiencing destinations in inspirational, unprecedented ways on your terms. Truly luxurious travel provides experiences tailored to your personalized preferences, including what you desire, how you like it, where and when you want it.
  • We work with everyone, families, groups, solo travelers. If you want more than an ordinary vacation, we will make that happen.
  • We are available 24/7 while you are on vacation, so you always have someone to help you through and take care of any unforeseen issues. This is your vacation, you do not need to worry or stress while you are on it.

What People Say

I highly recommend Jon & Jo’El Lapp as your go to travel planners. My trip to Disney was simple, they did all the work! All my reservations were made for me. In a few days they will be making our Fast Pass Tickets. All I do is let them know what I want and there it is. The Lapp’s also provided many good tips of restaurants and places to see in Disney. They are the best you won’t be disappointed!

Just came back from a week at the Royalton Resort in Punta Cana! Jo’el took care of everything! It was wonderful to not have to worry about anything!! They went above and beyond! When I got to the hotel I realized that I had left my kindle on the plane to Punta Cana! She made sure that it was waiting for me in the Delta office when I got back to the PC airport to return home! Thank you for everything! I’ll be in touch for my next trip!

Why use a travel agent?? So you can enjoy your trip without worrying about the details!!!! Our trip to Jackson Hole was perfect with every detail taken care of by Jo’El! LOVED snowmobiling through Yellowstone and the dinner and sleigh ride at Mill Iron was fantastic! We didn’t even have to worry when our flight was canceled due to weather – Jo’El handled everything while we were enjoying another day!! If you haven’t visited WY, you’re missing out! Thanks again! Can’t wait to plan our next adventure!
