Meet Jackie Zoll

"This is my favorite place"

is what I've said each and every place I've visited.  Travel has become a passion of mine and once only dreaming of visiting Europe and Cuba, along with past trips to Aruba, Eastern & Southern Caribbean, Puerto Rico, the Mexican Rivera, cruising the Danube to places such as; Czech Prague,  Germany, Austria, Hungary, Budapest with Viking Cruise Lines, has now become reality. 

Trips to Disney, Las Vegas, NAPA Valley, Grand Canyon, Hollywood, NY City, New Orleans, Florida, Mackinaw Island ( and oh did I mention I live in Charleston, SC), has given me experience in helping you with US travel. 

Along with my travel experience and over 35 years in customer service, I would be happy to share my expertise allowing you too to say; "This is my favorite place" 

Happy traveling!

Meet Clara Varga-Gonzal

We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.

A new journey changes you and leaves you transformed in mind, body and spirit. Whether you are visiting on a vineyard in Pinhao along the Duoro River, walking the grand rooms of Schonbrun Place in Vienna or exploring the many flavors of chocolate in Brussels, the feelings of delight, wonder and adventure change you.

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

I want to share my love for travel and help you travel experiences that expand your heart and mind.

My travel adventures began at 8 months old visiting my parent’s homeland in communist Hungary. Hungarian was my first language, and soon the culture and heritage become a part of me as well.

A family move to Austria during middle school sealed my love of all things European.  For two years we took trips skiing in the Central Alps and meandering through magical Austrian countryside. Those were the best years of my childhood.

My journeys continued accompanying my daughter on high school tours throughout Italy and Greece, along with family trips to Turks and Cacaos and Mexico, to luxury river cruises with my brother and elder mother to Portugal, and along the Rhine River and The Netherlands, my journey continues.

I desire nothing more than to design the trip of a lifetime for you and your travel mates.

Whether its lavender fields in Provence, dense forests in Ardennes or stately fortresses in Scotland I am here along with a team of agents to help you explore the beauty that is Europe.

From luxury river cruises that give you an intimate look at small villages, tours of magical castles and small luxury ships that travels through the fjords of Norway, I am here to save you time, energy and the stress of wondering whether or not you chose the right places and activities.
