My Background

Having grown up in the travel industry, then in the business since college, I've had the opportunity to experience all parts of this exciting travel career.  From escorting travel incentive groups abroad, to corporate travel management, to custom planning individual vacations - they are all a part of my travel life!  

Though I went to college to become a teacher and then decided to continue in the family business of travel, I've never regretted a moment.  Traveling is an education in itself and when I sit with a client and discuss any destination, I still get excited.  Whether its an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean, a corporate meeting in Chicago, an Anniversary celebration in Italy, or a 2 week Safari with family, they all are important to they are to my clients.  

I have a passion for what I taking that extra time, making that extra call, confirming sometimes the "impossible", and hearing about their incredible journey makes it all worth while!

Lilo Created the Perfect European Vacation!

By: Ray

Reviewed on: 09 Sep 2015

Bonjour and Hola! When we decided to make this year's vacation destination Paris AND Barcelona, we were excited -- and anxious at the same time. Fortunately, Lilo Matinas of Journeys Unlimited provided expert guidance literally every step of the way...the entire 11-days was mapped-out from start to finish. And what a great experience -- on so many levels -- it turned out to be! The "vibe" of both cities were night and day, so it really felt like we were on two vacations at the same time. All the daily activities, and the two hotel locations, could not be more perfect. And Lilo even made Business Class airfare fit into our budget! If you've always wanted to explore a foreign destination, but were inclined not to move forward because your trepidation exceeded your desire, you owe it to yourself to contact Lilo Matinas at Journeys Unlimited. Thank you Lilo!

Lilo as usual provided us another amazing vacation. We have travelled all over the world and we just returned from Patagonia,Chile. We stayed at Tierra Patagonia. Lilo made all of the arrangements, flight reservations, accommodation reservations as well as limousine service to the airport. She made sure that our stay was at an amazing hotel that provided us many difficult hiking excursions,horse back riding. She makes sure we are constantly running around with no down time doing everything possible. She is always available for us to help us during any travel issues as well. It is always a pleasure planning our trips with Lilo,especially because of our active lifestyle.

As usual you did a great job getting us back and forth to Jackson Hole,Wyoming. The holidays were great. We look forward to our next trip. Karly and I are leaving to ski and snowboard in Niseko, Japan on the 11th for ten days with four other friends. Will let you know how it is. I don't think many of your clients want to ski or snowboard in Japan. We are staying at the Freshwater in Niseko, Japan. Happy New Years!! Richard Domsky

We used Lilo to plan our family trip to Bermuda. She handled all of the details and was also able to get us breakfast included which saved us about $75 a day. We would not hesitate to book a trip with Lilo again. We were very happy with the service she provided.

We recently returned from a 12 day Hawaii trip and it was AMAZING! Hawaii was beyond our expectations but so was the planning of the entire trip by our travel Agent Lilo Matinas. I started to plan this surprise birthday get-away for my husband over a year in advance and Lilo worked on it with me every step of the way...late night covert e-mails and morning meetings so my husband wouldn't catch on! It was really so much fun to plan with her! Her suggestions and arrangements were perfect and she is so knowledgeable about everything I asked her. I truly felt like her "only client" for all the attention she gave me! W have a few trips coming up and Lilo is our go-to from now on! Thank you!!!! A & A

We've worked w/ Lilo for ~40 years for both business & vacation! She's the best! Wouldn't consider anyone else & wouldn't travel overseas without her backing us up. She always has excellent recommendations but listens to your ideas & requests. She planned a wonderful honeymoon in Spain for our son & daughter-in-law and scrambled to ensure it started smoothly when storms moved in & their initial flights were cancelled. We love Lilo!!

Lilo was a great travel advisor! She found an excellent company to give us a private tour of Thailand, and helped develop a wonderful itinerary for us.
