My Background

I have always loved to travel and have been lucky enough to stay in a number of beautiful resorts around the world. Through time I found myself having a real passion for designing trips for my family. I am ready to share my passion with those wishing to start building memories, whether it be family travel, a romantic honeymoon, or celebrating milestones. You can be rest assured that I will make every effort to make it "the one to remember" and will have you eager for me to start constructing your next travel memoir.

Expert, friendly, courteous service

Melissa was right on the mark with planning our vacation to Hawaii. She took the time to get to know our individual needs, likes, dislikes, preferences, etc. while planning our trip. She made sure that every detail was taken care of and really took the stress out of vacation planning. No detail was too small for Melissa! It was so nice to have someone who was so dedicated to our needs. Step by step instructions and recommendations based on our preferences was really a nice added touch to her impeccable service. During our trip she even made our day by sending a beautiful tray of chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate goodies for our kids to our room. We really felt the personal interest in our family far exceeded our expectations. She even reminded us about letting our credit card companies know we would be traveling so that we would not experience any interruption of service on our trip. I would definitely use Melissa Irion again for our future travel needs!

Phenomenal agent to work with for my 50 Birthday with friends

Melissa was top notch on all the research of accommodations, flights and dates for our vacation. She was very conscientious to make sure everything was easy for us . She gave us numerous options for accommodations to pick from and tried to get us the best flight option for all 6 people. Melissa was wonderful on keeping us updated on things we needed to take care of till our departure date. She got ahold of me while we were on our vacation to make sure everything was to my satisfaction. I have referred her to many of my friends and will use her again for a vacation get away.

March 2018 Cruise

Melissa Irion is an excellent advisor. This cruise involved coordinating our family including Aunt's, Uncle's, Parent's, friend's, and cousins. Melissa stayed on top of every detail of the trip and even coordinated our transportation to the ship and back from our meeting point. Everything went extremely smooth with our trip and when we decide to do this again, we will use Melissa again.

Trip of a Life Time

By: K & M

Early on we expressed an interest in an African safari. Melissa and her office had a tour group coming in to do a presentation and invited us to the event. It gave us food for thought and eventually did use that tour group which was excellent. Although I booked our own air with available miles, she was right there to assist in issues we had with the airline. Melissa was great as to keeping us updated and sending us reminders as to items related to traveling to Africa. She was superb in making recommendations in addition to the tour that we might consider. The result was a fantastic 25th anniversary trip of our lifetime......

It was an exceptional experience. She took care of every little detail for me. She was even able to get me an upgrade. Working with Melissa made me feel like she genuinely cared about me and I had a feeling of calm knowing she had my back. I will for sure always be using Melissa for all my trip planning needs.

Honeymoon of our dreams

By: Mike and Christina

Reviewed on: 16 Mar 2019

Melissa from beginning to end, and after, has been nothing short of fantastic. We were really unsure of exactly what we wanted and could do for our honeymoon and we've never used a travel advisor before. She gave us so many options with details and recommendations for each. All unique in their own easy. Once we picked our destination she helped us book top accommodations (while respectfully staying in our price range) from air fare, to transport to the resort and back and the resort itself. She gave us great recommendations for excursions and day trips as well. She was always available to answer any questions we had and provided top notch customer service the whole way. Add to our trip we also used Melissa's help to book a trip for my parents as a wedding gift. She took the reigns for that (at our request) and helped us book them a great trip while we focused on our honeymoon plans. We will ABSOLUTELY book with Melissa again and will recommend her!
