Cruise and Family Vacations Specialist

I stumbled into the travel agency business in 1986 when a company that I ran in Oklahoma decided to form an in-house travel agency.  That was 31 years ago.

During those years, my experience has evolved from running airline tickets and finding hotels and cars, to being very involved in our family owned business here in Murray, Utah.  I have found that helping people 'make memories to last a lifetime" is the thing I love to do.

Our Agency has a lot of niches.  We found that destination weddings and honeymoons were an area that we wanted to pursue.  We also found that group travel involving both students and adults was a rewarding field.  Each of us has seemed to navigate to one of those niches and made the Agency very successful for over 25 years.

I have channeled my expertise into doing family vacations, couple vacations and cruises for just about anyone that wants to get on the water or who wants to visit a historical city or a tropical destination.  Cruises are my very favorite thing to do, and I have personally sailed more than several times.  When an Agent has visited an area several times, or sailed on a ship to various destinations, that knowledge can be conveyed to the client.

Working with couples or the heads of families making that dream vacation materialize into more than they ever imagined is also something that is very rewarding personally.  Over the years I have found that more and more people want to travel with their families and make memories rather than give material gifts that will be forgotten in a few months.  Having photos of family or friends on a beach in a sunny, warm destination, or standing in the historical section of a city that has only been seen in school and picture books, brings memories forever.

We are a small Agency.  We get to know our clients by voice, email, phone, and in person.  We have clients that we have had for many years that we have never seen.  Those personal relationships are what makes our Agency successful.

Absolutely as good as it gets!
I have used Marjorie's service for flights and travel arrangements literally all over the world to the most remote corners of the planet. She is a professional. I am a National Geographic Explorer and Diamond on Delta so I fly a lot and need someone who knows what they are doing. And, I need customer service 24-7 which she and her employees provide. Absolutely the best!!

Variety is the spice of life
Marjorie gave excellent advise on the best time of year to travel, fantastic recommendations of great destinations and found the best air fair rates and best times to depart and arrive. She knows the customer and their needs. She has the experience and knowledge about the cruiselines and destinations. She will let you know the pros and cons.

You'll never plan your own trip again.
Marj has been great. The first time we worked with her was for our honeymoon. It was a beautiful trip to the Mayan Riviera at El Dorado Casitas. Since then, we don't even consider going on any significant vacations without seeing what Marj can do for us first.

We typically go somewhere nice once per year and she always does her best to get us the very best deal with as many upgrades and options as possible. She takes care of everything for us, from finding the right resorts and booking the best rooms to booking the most convenient flights for the money. We literally just have to pack, get up the morning of our flight to go to the airport, and go. It doesn't get much less stressful than that.

Marj also does all this for a much better price than if we just tried to book it all ourselves.

Not to mention she is extremely nice and pleasant to work with.

Good price: Check. Low stress: Check. Working with Marj is kind of a no-brainer for us.

Such great things said. I have to do a one-up!!! If all of our clients were as easy to work with and appreciative of efforts, it would be a beautiful world. Heck ... it is a beautiful world! Thanks for being a loyal client.

The Best Travel Agent in the World!
Marj is hands down the best travel agent that ever walked this earth! She has handled at least 7 different trips for us ranging from cruises to lengthy and complicated stays in Hawaii. The trips to Hawaii have included coordinating hotel stays, car rentals, airfare between islands and also cruises around the island. There is no trip that she can't handle and she thinks of all the little things that make a vacation go smoothly. I feel so confident and secure in knowing that Marj is handling our vacations. I know that I am paying the lowest price possible, as she continues to check for sales even after a trip is booked. One one of our trips to Hawaii, Delta pulled out of our local airport. Marj changed our tickets to another nearby airport. Delta then wanted to change our seats on the second leg of our flight because the ones we had were now upgraded seats. Well, Marj took the bull by the horns for us and was able to secure the same seats for us. I can't recommend Marj enough!
