Our Expertise Makes the Difference

We’ve earned numerous travel industry certifications, awards, and credentials. Why does this matter? Because we don’t recommend a product, a destination, or a service without knowing everything there is to know. We treat all of our clients as if they were our own family, which means we are always certain that no matter where you go, or what you do, we’re with you. That’s what makes our clients lifelong friends, and what Travel Planning for You is all about.

In Their Own Words…

American Express is fond of saying Don’t leave home without it. ​I prefer a change to Don’t leave home without talking to Micky. And talk about service while you are on a trip, Micky is always available if you have a problem with hotel or transport. I start all my trips with Micky now.

Travel Planning For You is absolutely amazing. Micky is providing me with the best deal on all of my tickets for my multi-country trip this December. I couldn’t do it without her. If you’re not using her services when you travel… then you’re really missing out!

We used Micky to plan our trip and as our private tour guide. We have to say, she did a great job. Her ability to speak and read the language helped us immerse in the destination. We enjoyed her enthusiasm and friendly advice. We give Travel Planning for You a 5-Star rating!
