Luxury Cruise and Travel Advisor

I have been a full time travel advisor for over 28 years and the phrase about having a job you love means never working a day in your life applies to me.
Island destinations first captured my imagination and I enjoyed visiting as many as possible and experiencing some of the best and most unique resorts that they offer.
i educated myself with hands on experience, certification lessons and programs, and using the expertise offered by the locals on many of these islands.
Europe was next in my personal explorations and I have not stopped learning and visiting some of the most renowned countries and destinations. i have insider tips and recommendations for the hidden gems that you can also discover along the way.
I can help you with an expedition cruise through the Mamanucas in Fiji, taking the ferries amongst the varied and beautiful U.S. and British Virgin Islands, or a road trip trough Croatia, maybe Plitvice National Park.

The best trip ever!
Joni took all my information and requirements for a trip planned with my mom. The trip was to Italy and required some coordination of multiple transportation connections and needs. Everything ran very smoothly and we had no glitches or issues with any of the service providers. We also had two half-day tours that were planned and both were an absolute delight!

I would highly recommend Joni to anyone planning a trip anywhere! Joni it top rate, highly professionally, and really knows the business.

20th anniversary
I have been working w/Joni for over 10 years. She plans all of our trips for us from A to Z - every little detail. We never had one problem in terms of something was missed, not planned or didn't go well. Joni is very professional, friendly and it's such a pleasure to work with her. She saves us so much time we would have to spend planning everything. I recommend her to my friends and colleagues all the time. She is incredible and we hope to continue working with her for years to come.

Happy Travels
Joni is simply a treasure. She is a very engaging person and she possesses a wealth of travel experience that has proven to be invaluable to me. She not only removes the daunting task of arranging and managing my travel plans, but she also provides succinct and customized recommendations for the kinds of activities, outings, tours and sightseeing I like best. I find her to be very knowledgeable and travel savvy. She has a special knack for selecting boutique hotels in prime locations within my budget. I love the various options she offers me and once I decide she delivers me a highly organized travel packet with copies of tickets, vouchers, itineraries, directions etc. It's makes for a very comforting travel experience. As you can tell I would highly recommend Joni for your travel needs.... and I'm not even related to her!
