Europe Specialist

Europe Scenery
Europe Scenery

I do many independent travel arrangements to Europe as well as tours.  With my many opportunities of travel to Europe doing individual travel as well as group travel with a tour operator, I am well qualified to assist you in your plans.  


There are many tour operators who offer a variety of vacations that I work with. One would be Insight Vacations who offers escorted tours with lots of legroom on the coach and includes a lot.  I personally traveled with Insight in Spain and Portugal.  


I also work with private companies who can provide any type of experience that you are looking for. How this relates to you, is that I can offer some of that first-hand experience in helping you decide what type of trip would be the best for you. This could be a guided tour, a cruise, a tour with a little structure and the remainder of the time on your own, or a trip where I set up all of the components for you.


Besides having experienced a lot of Europe on my own, I also have tour operators which I work with who can provide you with the right type of vacation that you are looking for. This can be large or small groups, large or small cruise ships, river cruising on longboats or on barges or traveling by rail.


What type of experience are you looking for? Let me help you in that discovery.

A fabulous trip
LaVonne spent lots of time with me helping me plan our trip. She was very patient and gave good advice when I was confused or unsure of something. I had a small problem with a reservation while in Scotland. I emailed LaVonne, and she took care of it for me. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

Aloha! Great trip
Lavonne Markus was a pleasure to work with. She is very efficient. She always answered every email and phone call.We often stopped in the office with requests, and she happily accommodated us. We enjoyed our excursions with Shore Trips, which she recommended.

Viking Rhine River Cruise is a "Bucket List" trip.
Lavonne makes everything seamless. Arrangements are quick and easy. We can always contact her quickly and get results, if we have any questions or concerns.
