My Background

I began my travel career with Pan American Airways back in the sixties. I started working at New Canaan TravelWorld in 1983 and have enjoyed many travel experiences especially those shared with friends and family.  I've taken small groups to experience African safaris, to explore the wonders of the Galapagos and Peru, to discover the intrigue of China, and to relax while cruising on the Med.  Trips to Italy, Normandy, Russia, Argentina, and Australia have been especially fulfilling.

An Incredible Journey in India

By: Jane55

Reviewed on: 15 Jan 2014

We took a first rate, luxury tour to India. I can only speak in superlatives about the sights visited, the hotels, the special experiences arranged for us, the food, guide, driver, and in particular, the warm reception we received everywhere we went. It was truly an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.

Highly recommended

Mary Jo is incredible.  She is very organized, knows a ton about the different areas we were interested in and took the time to explain the different hotels to us.  We will definitely use her again in the future!

Simply the BEST!

Mary-Jo is so wonderful. She is always excited to help us plan any trip, big or small. She really knows her stuff and always makes the best suggestions on where to stay ad what to do. I trust her implicitly. When so much planning can be done by oneself on the internet you may think you don't need the help of a travel agent, but that simply isn't true. The travel agents have the good deals, and know the property managers and the tour planners. When we went to Italy on a Tauck Tour, we ended up with the best rooms, including a view of the Grand Canal in Venice, when everyone else was staring at the back of the hotel walls. We were told that we couldn't let anyone else know b/c there would have been a mutiny. That was all due to Mary-Jo and her relationship with the Tour company. Totally recommend Mary-Jo.

Westin Excelsior Rome- Great Service by Concierge, Rooms clean, great location. Tour Guides provided both very good! Il San Pietro- Fabulous as usual in every aspect, except main Dining Room Dinner menu, stick with the great South Italy Food not the fancy new stuff, would not eat dinner there!

Trip was great. Really enjoyed the all the history in between excursions. Easy access to hotels, and events. Food was somewhat average. Our guide was well versed and entertaining.
