My Background

I came to the travel industry thanks to my oldest daughter. As a practicing physician I walked away from my career when she became a teen, to stay home and provide increased supervision. I did not want to give up our family trips, both from my personal love of travel and from the standpoint of showing her its transformative power. Best decision I ever made.

In the twelve years since, I've built my business solely on referrals - a testament to the knowledge, connections, and detailed approach that I bring to the planning process. My passion is sharing little known tips. I've cruised on more than 15 of the top river and cruise lines and led group tours throughout Hawaii, the Baltic, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.

I travel to meet new people, eat adventurously, and to open myself to curiosity and surprises. I encourage my clients to do the same. I seek feedback from clients to enhance my next travelers experience. I look forward to opening these doors on your next adventure.

The Best

By: Uromd

Reviewed on: 06 Aug 2017

Laurie is very attentive and anticipates what we might like or not. She is always right on point and to the point. She is always looking for ways to be helpful and is very dependable to follow through with what she can do. We know that we are in good hands when she makes a recommendation or plans something for us. We would recommend her without reservation.

Hawaii Trip

Excellent. Laurie is professional has a tremedeous attention to detail and anticipates any potential issues. One of her excellent suggestions was to put us in condo's for part of our trip to allow us to do some laundry. This was invaluable considering we had just run a marathon. We ran into one minor issue but even with a 4 hour time difference Laurie helped to resolve quickly and make sure we were satisfied with the resolution. She also followed up when we got home to make sure everything had worked out as planned. I highly recommend Laurie to all my friends

Great help

By: Travelgirl

Reviewed on: 22 Feb 2018

She was great, we decided at the last minute (on a Saturday night) to visit my daughter, who is studying abroad, the following weekend. I contacted Laurie late on a Saturday night and while I knew I could always reach her when traveling, she got back to me immediately. By Monday morning, she planned a last minute long weekend for my mom and me, got us into the hotel we wanted even though it was a big event weekend. Her connections at hotels is something we always value, but this time was great. They made us feel special, even though they were so busy. All the special things she planned worked out, and the list of things she suggested we do was so helpful since everything was so last minute.

Costa Rico

By: World Runner

Reviewed on: 15 Apr 2018

It was great working with Laurie. She made the process streamlined and efficient in finding the right places to go to that met my requests. Transfers between locations in Costa Rico were seamless with great drivers. The hotels were first rate. Really appreciated the Virtuoso amenity. Tours that we booked in advanced were with first rate tour guides who were timely, friendly, and informative. I highly recommend Costa Rico and having Laurie make the arrangements!

Great trip, Laurie is very focused and organized, picks hotels that work for us by location and services. When there is a rare mess up, she is on it, and gets it corrected. Excellent to work with. Scheduling always works.

I have worked with Laurie for many vactions and she has always done a fantastic job. From arranging flights, hotels, & tours, to recommending restaurants and things to do. I feel she really listens to what we are wanting to do and makes recommendations for us. She is organized, communicates well and always gets back to me in a timely manner. I feel that when working with her she pays attention to detail, and I would highly recommend using her.

Scandanavia and Russia

By: bucketlist

Reviewed on: 18 Jul 2018

Laurie is a jewel. This recent trip was my first to travel as a single. I needed a lot of hand holding which she cheerfully provided. Her review and rescheduling of my flights made for easy but not agonizingly long airport transitions. I have worked with her on several other trips and she has made everything smooth and easy for all.

Excellent Experience

By: FH

Reviewed on: 25 Jul 2018

Laurie made it easy all the way from "where do we go" to "where will we stay" based on our priorities for the trip. She gave us plenty of things to think about that we wouldn't have expected that made us excited about our decision. She was always available for bouncing ideas off of and directing us to trusted tours as we prepared to get the most out of our trip. And then the pleasant surprises once we arrived were a nice unexpected touch to make the trip that much more special. It all culminated into a great trip and a guaranteed return to using Laurie on any future vacation bookings!

Was perfect

By: happy

Reviewed on: 17 Jun 2019

Working with Laurie was great. She is so responsive, and understands ones travel needs, even as they change. She recommended the hotel we stayed at over another that was highly recommended by others, she knew our needs and thought we would be happier, and she was so right. It was perfect for us, and we stopped by the other, famous hotel and knew we were happier with Laurie's suggestion. Very thorough as well.

Farmhouse Inn

By: Wine lover

Reviewed on: 21 Dec 2019

Laurie knocked it out of the ball park again. Her recommendations and logistics were flawless. We loved the Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma County! The food and service and accommodations were all just what we were looking for. Not only did she arrange some fantastic Virtuoso amenities, but this trip she was able to add something called JMAK amenities. For a 3 night stay the perks just kept coming. We did not want to bother her with just a 3 night hotel stay but are so glad we did. She is already planning our next 3 vacations. Can't wait to see what surprises she has in store!
