How We Serve You

Crafting the perfect trip comes down to knowing what really makes you tick. Are you a food and wine lover? Do you find yourself most inspired in buzzing cities or in off-the-beaten-path destinations? 

First, and most importantly, my goal is to get to know you so I can seek out destinations, properties, and activities that are in line with your personality and desires for your upcoming trip. Whether it's an epic honeymoon escape or a rare opportunity for a multigen getaway, every trip has the potential to bring extra special memories. 

As your Travel Advisor, my goal is to make travel seamless, hassle-free, and fun from start to finish.

Shannon planned a trip to Ireland for our family that was magical It touched on everything we could have wanted: castles, charming towns, horseback riding in the park, the beautiful seaside, and of course the pubs! The people are so warm and friendly - it still stands out as one of our favorite memories as a family and we can't wait to go back.

Shannon planned the most phenomenal engagement trip for my fiancé and I in Greece. The hotel, the sights, the boat trips, the incredible food - we couldn't have had a more perfect trip. She even coordinated a photographer for our engagement photos there, which was amazing. Thank you for making our special week even more magical! 

- Rick F.

Shannon has planned many trips for us, including trips to Greece, France and Ireland. On our trip to France, she arranged our flights, set up the hotel in Paris, and arranged our accommodations in the wine region of Alsace. We visited different vineyards and enjoyed wine tastings in the region. She even set up a private vineyard tour on segways which was a first for us, but hopefully it won't be our last. We couldn't have seen all that we did without her planning.
