Getaway to Mexico and stay forever. That is how it goes right? The Yucatan Peninsula and Riverira Maya is an incomparable stretch of paradise. The Margaritas and authentic tacos are the finishing touch. I have spent time in this area, with Tulum a...

Croatia Luxury Travel Agent Expert

Many travelers do not know that Croatia, once known as Yugoslavia, is very safe to travel. The country's Byzantine art, delicious foods, and picturesque towns makes for a compelling European escape and holiday. That is why I love to share information, as a travel agent, for this crescent-shaped country in Eastern Europe. Sitting in the northwest portion of the Balkan Peninsula, Croatia is geographically diverse. The capital of Zagreb spans the north while the popular city of Dubrovnik overlooks the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia. I like to suggest a trip to Dubrovnik, as the city is both picturesque and interesting historically and architecturally. Dubrovnik, which has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, regularly receives vast numbers of visitors, many of whom are day-trippers or cruise-goers. If you go during the summer, it can be difficult to find accommodations. That is why, as a travel agent advisor, I recommend travel times, such as the spring or fall, when the city is less congested. Durbrovnik's history, just like Croatia's, has been defined by a struggle - one where the people have perpetually worked toward remaining independent. The former name of the city was Ragusa, which translates, in English, to "rock." The name still appears on museums and flags in the walled city. Another good city to visit in Split, the ideal hub for exploring the Dalmatian Islands. If you head toward this destination, you will want to direct your travels to the islands' beaches, including their rustic restaurants that you will find further inland. Both sun worshippers and windsurfers love this part of Croatia, known for its Golden Cape - a well-known shingle beach. Shingle beaches are rare and are made up of pebbles, stones, and other small rocks instead of sand. A trip to the capital of Zagreb will lead you to some interesting Austro-Hungarian buildings, including the city's Gothic Cathedral and St. Mark's Church, built in the 1200s. The pedestrian-friendly Tkalciceva Street is home to outdoor cafes while you will find the central square in Lower Town. Would you like to learn more about a trip to Croatia? If so, I am your go-to travel agent for this fascinating country. Give me a call or email me anytime for planning your ideal holiday.

Great Trip planned by an even Greater Travel Agent
Monique did a wonderful job planning a family trip for myself and my siblings to Williamsburg, VA. While I was already somewhat familiar with the area, she was able to provide us information on 'hidden gems' within the area that we were not aware of!
She was very thorough from the beginning to end of the trip by all the right questions to ensure she had all information needed to plan a wonderful family vacation. She was very responsive to all questions and did a great job of ensuring we were as prepared as possible for our long weekend. She made sure we were able to include fun activities for everyone (children and adults) as we visited Busch Gardens, Lounged out on the beach for a day, and we were even able to do a little retail therapy at the Tanger Outlets after a little wine tasting at the Williamsburg Winery (only the adults ;-) ). I cannot wait until my family is ready for another weekend retreat, as we will be reaching out to Monique for her wonderful services once again.

Her Help Made Me Cruise into Relaxation
I have become a frequent casino goer and have logged quite few cruises from it, but needed help on how to set myself up with getting to the ports successfully. Not only that, but reaching out to Monique was useful in knowing when to arrive for a cruise, where to stay, transportation services, documents, as well as what to pack so that I could enjoy myself at sea. She's great!

Gave Me Confidence
Monique was great, she made traveling to South Africa much less daunting than when I first approached on the idea of traveling there. She found tours and interest to fit my need in every direction, and definitely helped to make the most of my time. I learned so much about the travel process, became confident in my traveling solo, and would not have been able to complete this trip without Monique. Hands down the best!

The Most Stress Free Vacation Ever!
After a rough last year, I really needed a vacation but did not want to stress figuring out all the logistics for my wife and I. That's why we found this amazing agent to do it!My Wife and I shopped around, and felt instantly connected during our consult and never looked back. The time we had in Puerto Rico was relaxing, yet invigorating, with the perfect touch of unwind and adventure. Now we have decided to vacation every year and headed to Tulum, Mexico next. Guess whose planning it? You got it!

A Magical Agent for Our Magical Trip!
I have wanted to take my family to Disney for years, but we were never quite ready. I started seeing deals more frequently about Disney, so decided to reach out to an agent about it, just to see and learn some more about the parks, dinings, resorts, etc. On my own it was overwhelming! Monique was the best decision ever, helping understand the options and the deposit beauty- our family had the most magical time! From the planning to the tips and tricks, packing list, Genie+, it made it less stressful. I would highly recommend!
