Europe is a fascinating continent filled with UNESCO Heritage sites, buildings that seem to be stuck in time, cultures that still embrace their ancestors beliefs and ways, and exotic spices that make your taste buds jump.  

People travel to Europe to learn and see what they read about in history books or what they saw on the television.  One little spark can make the imagination curious and the next thing you are on plane to a foreign country.

Kayla is wonderful! She is knowledgeable about the destinations, is quick to reply, and very organized. Our trip was well planned and customized, all documentation and information neatly organized and there was no stress. I highly recommend her to anyone that is planning a vacation.

Melissa is the best! She was very thorough with the planning, asking what each member of our family was interested in and matching up activities and meals to those interests. She helped us form a game plan for each park, each day. She really shared in our joy and excitement. And to close the loop, when we arrived home she wanted to hear all about the trip to make sure we had a great time and that she didn't miss a detail. We highly recommend Melissa to make your WDW dreams come true!

Our European river cruise with added stays in Budapest and Nuremberg was perfectly put together by Mary. Her attention to detail and follow-through with our requests was superb. Private transfers that she arranged were completely dependable and professional. Hotels that she booked were lovely and located conveniently close to the attractions we wanted to see. We highly recommend Mary and her company for your next travel arrangements!

This was our first overseas trip and Mary did an incredible job of guiding two newbies in the confusing world of international travel. Everything went seamlessly and she covered everything on our wish list based on simply talking with us for a few hours. We'll definitely use her services again and have been recommending her to all our friends since our return.

Mary has provided great support and guidance as I ventured out as a solo traveler. This type of trip brings concerns of safety, convenience and most importantly, enjoyment! She helped me find the right trip with a reliable company and completed all of my flight scheduling. I knew that she was only a phone call away should I have any concerns. I had a great time and I look forward to additional trips soon.Thanks Mary!
