Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Each traveler is different which is why each journey is crafted with the traveler's unique requirements and desires in mind. Looking to step back in time on a luxurious rail journey, cruise idyllic islands on a private charter boat with your own captain, almost touch the diverse wildlife of Africa's savannas and rainforests, experience the great cities of the world like a local or perhaps discover the food and wines of different cultures? I listen well to match the optimal vacation experience creating a truly lifetime adventure. Having founded Gateway Destinations, LLC in 2007, I specialize in designing luxury and experiential travel to international destinations as well as Alaska and Hawaii with a special focus on Europe. As a Certified Travel Associate and selected as a France Specialist by Signature Travel Network, I continually seek ways to deepen my product knowledge, further strengthen my relationships with suppliers and personally visit destinations, searching for off-the-beaten path and authentic experiences to discover and share in a memorable way. Additionally, I have been selected by TripAdvisor Reco as a specialist for five destinations - France, Italy, Kenya, South Africa and Uganda.

Jan was so helpful and professional as she helped us plan our honeymoon to Norway and then subsequently cancel it due to COVID travel restrictions. We look forward to working with her again when we are able to take that trip!

Jan planned an amazing two week trip to Italy for my sister and myself- it could not have been more fabulous! After meeting with me to get an idea of what we were looking for she created a wonderful experience for us that was way beyond our expectations. She is the very best at what she does and we will not travel without her expertise! Thank you, Jan. Cynthia Wood

We have used Gateway Destinations to book several European vacations as well as domestic trips. Jan finds great deals on travel packages for us every time. These packages cost much less than if I had booked the exact same flight/hotel/tours, etc. myself (I have checked!). We had to cancel our April vacation to Maui due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Jan was very responsive and worked hard to get us a FULL REFUND. We expected a credit, maybe, but were thrilled to get the refund and the flexibility to rescheduled at a later date, or not. Thank you Jan for your superb customer service and dedication during a truly crazy time for the travel industry and the world.
