Destination Weddings and European Specialist

I have been a Travel Advisor for over 30 years and have extensive knowledge in planning incredible and memorable vacations. I know the travel leisure side of travel. As I mentioned living on the Island of Crete Greece for 3 1/2 years by escorting a group to Egypt and ending with a Nile Cruise. Moving over to Zweibrucken, Germany for another 3 years learning to ski the Alps and organizing all ski trips throughout Europe and the US for our American/German ski club. I love working one on one with my clients to get to know their interests so I can help you plan your "trip of a lifetime". Whether it's a weekend getaway to Club Med, in Port St Lucie, Fl., a great family all inclusive resort, the only all inclusive in the US, or a world wind adventure trip to Costa Rica, giving you a personalized experience is a must! I have completed many Resort Specialist training programs and Destination Specialist courses including Sandals Specialist. Having travelled extensively and visited many resorts, I can offer "first hand" experience for prospective clients. Everything looks great online, but actually visiting the properties, dining at the restaurants and getting a feel for the atmosphere of the destination is so important in helping me find the perfect destination for you! Some of the destinations that I have travelled include all of the Mediterranean, all throughout Europe, Mexico, Alaska, Canada-Calgary Lake Louise ,Jasper and Banff while enjoying the experience of the Fairmont hotels , California, New York, Washington DC, New Orleans, Chicago, Vancouver BC Whistler, Korea, Costa Rica, Hawaii and most of the Caribbean, African Safari ending in Mombasa. While living in Phoenix and Tucson Arizona I enjoyed Sedona and the Grand Canyon, Living near Williamsburg, Virginia. I stayed at the Greenbrier and the Homestead Resorts. One of my most resent trips was to San Francisco and the to NAPA Valley for the wine train and hot air ballooning over the vineyards and wine tasting. I have customized in depth independent European itineraries as well as escorted tours and cruises and River Boat cruising and Cuba is HOT for Travel in 2016.  I have recently returned from Cartagena, Columbia. Cruising on my 3rd sailing with Regent Seven Seas in Oct 2019.  I look forward to helping you plan your next memorable experience!

Customer Testimonials

Alaska Cruise and a Trip to Calgary, Lake Louise

Connie, Thank You for helping us plan an amazing trip! We had a terrific time. The Alaska Cruise was quite a treat since it was our first. The entertainment, the excursions, the variety of dining options-all were wonderful. Banff and the surrounding lakes were simply amazing. Vancouver was great fun and friendly people everywhere, beautiful views, and of course the US Women's World Cup ! Once again you were a critical component in planning a trip we will never forget. Many Thanks Tricia

She really took care of my parents!
My parents took a trip to Amsterdam and Belgium and were really nervous about traveling by themselves for the first time. Connie built an amazing itinerary that included every detail from accommodations and personal tours to transit between cities. They had an amazing time, and their (adult) children didn't have to worry :)

Super with our constraints - happy results
Connie worked within our budget and destination goals for a driving vacation in Scotland that had to be wedged in between a family trip to Denmark and a small-ship cruise around Iceland. She quickly followed up on our questions, requests, concerns, and helped us shape a trip that made us very happy. When we thought there was a "hiccup" with the airport transfer in Glasgow, she was available by text/email which was most reassuring. She's a real professional and works to get you the results you request.
