Life is Better Traveling 

"Customized European Vacation Planning"

Maybe you haven’t been to Europe before and you have a lot of questions.  Maybe you have been to Europe on multiple occasions and want some ideas on unique experiences.  Life is Better Traveling is one of the top European vacation planning travel agencies on the east coast.  


Each year we help hundreds of clients enjoy unique experiences throughout Europe.  Some of our clients have enjoyed private cooking classes in a local's home on the cliffs of Fira in Greece.  Other clients have enjoyed private tours of the Vatican museum at night, or privately toured the underground area of the Colosseum.  Our agents have personally enjoyed their private chocolate and French pastry tasting tour through the streets of Montparnasse in Paris, France.  


Our job as your travel advisor is to make sure you have experiences that will create memories and stories for a lifetime.  We aren’t here to just book your flights, hotels, transfers, and rail.  We plan so that this chapter in your book of life is one that you will want to read over and over again.   

You have been a pleasure to work with and we are so impressed with your knowledge, thoroughness, and pleasant professionalism.  It gives us much peace of mind that all the details have been taken care of.

Europe Country Hopping

Customized Country-to-country Planning 

Europe is made up of so many amazing countries.  Sometimes our clients want to see multiple countries in one trip.  It is actually quite easy to spend a few days in London and then head to Paris.  Maybe you want to tour Italy for a week and then sail along the Croatian coast.  At Life is Better Traveling, our clients tell us the countries they want to visit and what they want to experience.  We craft a customized itinerary that includes everything from hotels to adventures to seamlessly getting from country to country.

Customized in-destination European Vacation Planning

"Top Selling Travel Agency in the Northeast and Pittsburgh for Customized In-Destination European Vacations in 2018 & 2019."  by Europe Express

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.

Baltic Sea Cruise

Ocean Cruise Planning

Cruising is a great way to see some of the most unique islands and destinations in Europe.  Cruising around the Greek Islands is one of the most spectacular and popular ways to really immerse yourself in the different regions of Greece.  Another popular cruise with our clients is the Baltic Sea cruise.  The dichotomy of various Northern European countries is one of the most eye-opening opportunities and captivating experiences.  


If you are ready to explore places only a big ship can go, then let’s dive in! 

River Cruise in Europe

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!
