Whether your interests align with exploring the historic cities of Italy, trekking through the rugged Scottish Highlands, or soaking up the sun on the French Riviera's coastal stretches, I'm here to create an unforgettable journey that surpasses all your expectations.


As a certified leisure specialist, I take immense pride in delivering the pinnacle of expertise and service to my clients. I engage closely with each individual to grasp their unique interests, crafting entirely customized experiences that transcend your expectations.

"We had a fabulous spring break vacation in Italy with our three sons. Michelle was solid perfection in arranging the details including complicated flight schedules for the five of us - - not originating from the same airport or returning home to the same airport. Michelle's scheduling was fantastic, her communications with us was top-notch, and the price point was excellent. She has our enthusiastic recommendation!"
