Fantastic Family Vacation
Our trip to Japan was everything we hoped it would be! Tom’s recommendations, accommodations, tour guides, and dining experiences were nothing short of wonderful! We felt spoiled and had no worries on our trip. The attendants who greeted and escorted us from place to place were also extremely helpful and did not leave us until they knew we were well taken care of. We could not have dot this without Tom’s help. We thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic family vacation – which was long overdue.
"Tom helped me get out of South America in the middle of the Triple Hurricane season!"
Tom planned a wonderful trip for us!! He listened to what we were interested in and planned accordingly. He found a great tour guide to take us through Ireland. Our hotels in Ireland and London were all beautiful....but we loved the castle the most! Thanks to Tom I have wonderful memories of my trip with my daughters!!!! (and had ZERO stress!)"

"Tom is a dedicated and passionate agent when it comes to Wellness Travel. He is a great go-to source of information for the Select Wellness Collection and what these amazing properties have to offer for the 'wellness lifestyle traveler!'"
Tom made our honeymoon dreams come true!
"We decided on Thailand and Tom was available every step of the way to ensure that all our concerns were taken care of. We didn't have to worry about a thing once we landed! He goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible and he is an expert in his field. We can't wait to book our next vacation through Tom!!"
Great trip to Ireland
"Tom was great, our trip to Ireland was 10 times easier having used his services to help plan everything out beforehand. Hotels were wonderful, great staff and perfect locations. Car rental was extremely smooth, no issues with pick up, or drop off. We were able to relax the whole time and just enjoy our vacation knowing that he already took care of basically everything for us."

Trip of a Lifetime
He helped my wife and I create a 5 week European self guided trip (trains, planes & automobiles) of a lifetime.
He also followed us throughout our trip to ensure we were well cared for (e.g. making recommendations for restaurants, faster ways to travel between countries and dealing wit COVID testing).
I plan on using Tom again and again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a real caring, professional.

Tom knows how to keep “the perfect trip” perfect
The trip of a lifetime!
Not only did he find me the perfect 3 week trip through Europe, but he helped me plan every step of the way. He found me an amazing priced flight, a super convenient hotel in London, and then a tour group for my age that went throughout 7 countries and 10 cities.
Tom helped me plan the trip of a lifetime and I couldn’t imagine having done any of this without him!
