Memorable Family Vacations Specialist

When I go on vacation, I like to make sure that all details are taken care of (flights, hotels, transfers, sightseeing) yet also want to have some free time to explore whatever I might be interested in doing that day. I know most of my clients als...

Escorted Europe

There are many ways to see Europe...by rail, by hiking, by ship, by car...my favorite personally is by an escorted motor coach tour. Yes, you will have certain time restrictions to follow in destinations, but why not spend your vacation with having someone else worry about the details? Speaking as someone who has boarded the wrong train, slept overnight at the airport since I didn't know where my hotel was located, and not knowing what significant sight I was viewing, I really appreciated having details taken care of for me. I'm on vacation - I shouldn't have to worry about these things. Escorted tours have trained guides who speak the local language, know hidden treasures, point out things I may have missed on my own. I can sit back and enjoy the ride rather than stressing out about which off ramp I need to exit on or which train I'm suppose to connect to. If you don't want to travel on your own but still aren't keen on the thought of a motor coach tour but love the idea of someone taking care of you I can also assist with pre-planned vacation packages or even a private car with driver. Europe has so much to offer. Why not make the most of your vacation experience?

Amazing experience and amazing agent
Mrs. Johnsrud is a very well mannered woman and she truly cares about peoples dream vacations. She booked me a vacation over in Mexico and Asia and I had such an amazing time with friends and family! I will never choose anyone else but Mrs. Johnsrud to work with on going anywhere domestic and international.

The Perfect Vacation Coronavirus Ended,
I recommend her all the time! We will and we have called Laurie for every vacation! We have used her services for years! Love her suggestions and she always finds us the best deals. She knows how to pick us the perfect hotel room and amenities! She answers questions very timely, however, we rarely have questions because she is very thorough! When we needed to cancel our trip, she did it timely and with kindness. Laurie has made every experience with her excellent!

Outstanding trip
Laurie was so expediant about getting things set up, arranged to perfection and giving us so many "heads up" tips on bettering our trips. We were able to flow smoothly through all the termoil at the airports and check in stations along the journey. She is great! ! Thanks Laurie..................Birdie & Dave
