I will invest my time, knowledge and experience to design a vacation experience especially for you.

Do I Need a Passport for Travel and Why?
Yes, you need a passport for all International Travel. A U.S. Passport is required for all US citizens traveling outside the contiguous United States. The passport must be vaild for at least 6 months after the return date.
Non US citizens are required to contact the consulate for the country they are visiting to determine entry requirements. It is the responsibility off the traveler to verify and obtain all necessary documentation needed for your trip. Furthermore, minors traveling without both the legal parents and/or guardians need to travel with a notarized letter of consent.
Why Should I Hire a Travel Professional?
There are multiple benefits to using a travel professional. These are the Top 3 :
More value for your money: a travel professional is trained to know how to combine locations and experiences for the best value to maximize your price point; plus travel professionals recieve special "travel agent only" discounts and offers from vendors which means more saving for the client!!!
Troubleshooting: Your flight may get cancelled, your itinerary may change unexpectedly, and/or nature decides to put on a spectaular show; a travel professional has the contacts to call to resolve the issue(s) as well as using vendors that offer 24/7 Emergency Support to offer assistance.
Travel Style: a travel professional is privy to little things that make a big impact; for example - special meal requests to celebrate, better seats and upgrades and sharing those destination hidden gems. A travel professional listens, understands, and suggest things your browser doesn't such as "the fine print", travel protection insurance and travel documentation preparation.
