Arranges Memorable Vacations
We have used Michelle's services for many years. She's arranged an escorted tour in Italy, several cruises, and many vacations to Sandals all-inclusive resorts for us. She takes the time to listen to what you desire in an ideal vacation, and then researches the best options to book a memorable vacation at the best price. She has traveled extensively and can draw on her own personal experience in making recommendations.

Probably the most valuable part of using Michelle's services is that you know you have a reliable person who has your back in case unexpected issues come up during travel. One year we were returning from a Sandals resort in Jamaica. Our phones were turned off due to high cost of international cell phone service, but we had wifi at the airport and could access our email. That's when we learned that our flight was delayed. She kept in touch with us about more delays, which was most appreciated.

We would highly recommend Michelle Karn for all of your travel nee

Best Trip
Michelle was terrific from day one! She was extremely easy to work with on my family trip. She was very responsive and knowledgeable about our trip location, fly info, and etc. I personally have never worked with a travel leaders in the past. Any fear was out the door after a quick 5-minute face to face with Michelle.

Moving forward I will let Michelle do the planning of future trips and I will just claim all the great reviews from my family. Highly recommend.

Can't Imagine a Better Travel Agent!
Michelle has arranged several trips for us over the last 5 years ranging from a winter getaway to Riviera Maya, an Alaska cruise with land tours, a 10-day guided tour to Tuscany from Rome, and most recently, a (perfect) two-week trip to northern Italy.

We can't say enough good things about Michelle. She knows her business well enough to suggest worthwhile options about where to go, where to stay, and how to get there. Every itinerary she's done for us has been flawless. She pays attention to the details, and always follows up.

We've recommended Michelle to family and friends, and can't imagine ever planning another trip without her.

Every Journey, Every Time Simply the Best
I have worked with Michelle 15 years now. The very first time was for our honeymoon and we have had a wonderful relationship and partnership sense. Michelle is very thorough and listen's to her customers needs, wants, and desires, as well as consideration for budget. Over the years she has planned all of my very special memories with my husband, family, & friends. Each time she has exceeded my expectations and is always very responsive with my many questions and follow-ups. Michelle has the special touch to make every travel journey more than just a vacation, more than just a dream come true, are experiences are simply amazing and breath taking. We are blessed that we can travel to various places like---Mexico, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Greek Isles, Disney World, Phoenix, Hawaii, and many other destinations. Each time Michelle delivers and experience that tops the last. Every aspect of planning; resort/hotel, flights, excursions, my spa/shopping, & my husbands golf.The BEST!
