My Background

In my eyes, travel is an education and privilege!  It is the best hands on learning experience that never gets old. 

While I enjoy all aspects of travel, I especially love stepping outside my comfort zone - it almost always leads to a unique experience that I would never have known existed.  It's these types of adventures I'm thrilled to be able to deliver for my clients.

I began my career in the travel industry in 1983, seeking ways to be more independent.  I started planning leisure travel, then incorporated business accounts into my services as well.  Now, I work in both, as well as specializing in active, European, culinary and educational travel experiences.  And, while I have my favorite destinations, resorts and hotels, I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities to bring to you!

My favorite part of each trip is spending time with a local, experienced guide. Private guides provide a personal aspect to any tour, any destination.

Great to work with

By: Saj

It was a pleasure to work with Mary; she is very responsive, helpful and patient. She was great at getting back with answers to any questions I had. We had an amazing stay at the Four Seasons Costa Rica. We booked a canopy suite and were upgraded to a suite with a plunge pool, which was very much appreciated! Our request for a private room with nice view was perfectly accommodated by the resort.

Excellent, efficient & helpful

Mary is always a delight to work with. She returns emails promptly and provides the most up-to-date information on destinations, flights, upgrades and superior hotels. My go-to travel advisor for sure!!! She has assisted my family with our travel plans for 11 years and I have not been disappointed or letdown once!!

An overall perfect trip

Working with Mary was very easy. She must've read the profiles we completed at the start of planning very carefully because everything was to our standards. Mary is responsive to calls/emails and has a quick turnaround time. The vendors she suggests are top notch and the itineraries she provided prior to our departure were clear and organized. I look forward to planning another trip with Mary.

Always a pleasure
