Discover Europe

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.  Discovering all the wonders that Europe has to offer is while coming back with memories that are filled for a lifetime.

What Mary's Clients Are Saying

Barbara and Lee Murray - Appleton

We became aware of Mary when she arranged for some travel for our family in Italy last year. My husband and I are frequent travelers and have always preferred cruising but Ireland was on our ‘bucket list’ so when we saw that she had arranged one, we looked at the itinerary and consulted with someone who travels there who said it was excellent, we decided to book the trip.

Mary organized a very interesting trip for our small group of various age and interests ~ 4-77. She attended to all the details who left us to simply ‘sit back, relax and enjoy’. Through the entire process of booking, she was excellent in replying to all questions and inquiries within several hours and was always just a phone call away. We did all our correspondence long distance.

I highly recommend her services and have referred her to several friends who have also used her services.

Toni Conner - Pittsburgh

Mary arranged our family trip to Italy, and I couldn't be happier! I never could have planned such a wonderful trip on my own. Mary helped determine what places and attractions were most important to us, and the locations and kinds of hotels we needed. She arranged flights, hotels, transfers, ferries, tours, private guides, attraction tickets, contacts, anything. Everything was great, and it was reassuring to know I could call her if things went wrong.

We wanted to visit an out-of-the-way island in the off-season to see where my grandfather grew up. Very few people there spoke any English. No hotels were open during the off-season, and the ferries to and from the island were limited, but Mary was able to make it happen.

I have not used a travel agent in the past, but after this experience, I’ll always call Mary for international travel, and probably for adventurous domestic travel too. It was wonderful to have someone else handle all the details, so I could just relax

Stephanie Wright - Ohio

Mary is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! She was extremely knowledgeable about each of the cities we went to and different excursions we were able to try. She gave us wonderful recommendations of what to do and what is not worth the time and/or money. She was very organized and sent us a binder of our itinerary as well as all of the vouchers we would need for our trip. She set up personal transfers from the airports/train stations/hotels/etc. which was wonderful! We did not have to worry about what time we needed to leave or how we were going to get there. This allowed us to enjoy our trip and not stress about the details.

I would recommend Mary to anyone looking for an amazing and stress-free trip! She thinks of every little thing and is there to guide you every step of the way! I will definitely be using her anytime we need a vacation and recommending her to all of our friends and family!
