Guided Vacations including small groups

Ancient Rome!
Ancient Rome!

I love guided vacations and think they are a wonderful option for my clients to explore a new destination. Not only do you have the value of a well-informed guide, driver and itinerary, but you get to share your experience with a group of like-minded travelers. Many of us conjure an image of large clumps of tourists taking photos at a roadside stop but today's guided or escorted tours couldn't be further from the truth. Today's guided vacations are small groups, staying in unique hotels, and enjoying the freedom of touring without the hassles of the logistics. My favorite part of a guided vacation is the guide. He or she is a wealth of knowledge, full of interesting stories, and also advice for when you have time on your own. This guide keeps you engaged, and also provides priority access to sightseeing and the opportunity to try new things like cooking in Tuscany, or wine tasting in the Loire Valley. If you want to experience a new country or even explore more of our own, I work with a variety of companies that offer high quality guided vacations to match almost any travel wish you have in your bucket list. Please contact me by phone or email and let's make an appointment to learn more about your options on a guided vacation.

Great Family Adventure
Meridith was very helpful in planning our recent family vacation. She was knowledgeable and helped us pick the perfect vacation within our budget that met all of our needs. She was also very responsive to my many requests.

Our vacation was awesome and everything happened exactly as we planned with Meridith.

Awesome Spring Break!
Meridith planned an exceptional vacation for our family of five. From the morning (but not too early) non-stop departure, the fabulous all-inclusive resort, and the tour coordinator who was present as we arrived at our destination- everything was taken care of. We were able to enjoy sun, relaxation and family time instead of worrying about all the travel details

Exploring the cradle of civilization
We have worked with Meridith for several years and have found her very knowledgeable, extremely helpful and easy to work with. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent who can provide common sense guidance and relieve the client of many of the concerns of modern day travel.
