My Background

I have a background in teaching French at the high school level, have worked in the travel business for approximately 20 years and have a passion for languages and world travel. I've experienced river cruises all over Europe and know the various itineraries on the Danube, Rhine, Rhone, the Yang-Tse in China and the Mekong in Viet Nam and Cambodia. I've sailed just about everywhere in the Caribbean and Med, large ships, small ships, you name it. I know Eastern Europe and Western Europe, recently returned from an amazing trip to Paris and Berlin. I hope to be working in this industry until I make the final departure!

Janet was a fantastic resource in helping us plan our European vacation this past summer (2013). From hotel recommendations, areas/sites that would suit our personalities and excursions we would enjoy, she was very helpful in working with us to make our vacation enjoyable. This is our second European vacation we've planned with Janet and would recommend her to friends.

Janet listened to my husband and I and found the perfect trip for us. When we walked in, we were all over the map; with her help we chose a wonderful package trip to Barcelona. Her knowledge and expertise helped us pick the right hotel for us. We couldn't have been happier! Kudos to Janet!

I have used Janet's services in the past and was so impressed that I will continue to use her valued opinions and excellent understanding of customer service in the future. In fact, I highly recommend Janet Simic. Janet behaves more like an advocate for my needs rather than a sales person which makes me feel like my best interests are her priority. I admit that I am not easy to please and appreciate excellent service which Janet delivers. I really enjoy receiving the publications she has sent out and will definitely book more excursions when time allows us to travel. Next trip will be a smaller cruise or a river cruise. Celebrity won't see us again - too many travelers and not our style. I came to Janet with the Celebrity package because pals were going and ended up not coming along. Otherwise I would have had Janet book us on the Seabourn or a river agenda...next time.

Very friendly and helpful

Janet, as always, provided me with prompt service and great advice when booking tickets, and arranging for travel insurance and seating for myself and my son to fly to the States and back. I really appreciate her friendly service and quick replies.

Outstanding Caribbean Experience

By: Dave

My wife, Children, Grandchildren and I ( there were 10 of us ) just experienced the most wonderful week at Paradisus Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. The management and staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The resort is fabulous, food is great and the customer service outstanding. We have traveled throughout the Caribbean over the past 25 years and this is without a doubt the best family experience we've had. A special thanks to Janet Simic for all her help in organizing every aspect of our trip and helping create a wonderful family experience that will last a life time. Janet has been looking after our travel arrangements for over 15 years and has always provided us with first class service and advice.

Always available. We got somewhat confused on visa requirements due to changing government rulings and conflicting information from other sources. Otherwise, a great source of knowledge and information
