Specializing In Romance Travel



How important is your honeymoon or destination wedding? We believe it is the most important trip of your lives because it is the one you will always remember as your first trip as man and wife. When you are planning something as important as your honeymoon or destination wedding, working with someone that specializes in romance travel is essential. Why trust such an important experience to someone that generalizes in travel or that has not traveled themselves? We started in the travel industry only designing honeymoons and destination weddings and today it is still our primary business.

We have traveled extensively throughout the world to bring our clients first-hand romance experience. We do not believe in brochures and keep very few in stock. We believe in providing our clients with our first-hand travel experience to guide them toward the best experience that makes sense for them. We started in Romance Travel because that is what drives our marriage and love to find new destinations to build our own relationship on. We believe that your honeymoon is far from an ordinary trip and strive to make it extraordinary as you begin your lives together.

What Makes Us So Different?



In a word - Service. We love what we do and believe that it shows. No more pushy travel agent trying to get you to book at one particular resort so that they can get their extra perks. We profile each of our couples in order to fully understand their specific dreams. We certainly have our favorite resorts, but they may not be your favorite and we take the time to get to know you so that we can recommend that perfect destination, all-inclusive resort, boutique hotel, river cruise, or whatever it may be. With over 20 years of global travel experience and an extensive network of worldwide affiliations we are able to provide our clients with first-hand travel expertise to some of the most sought after destinations.
Resources – Next to None
Our resources set us apart from the rest as we are able to provide some truly unique opportunities throughout the travel world. As an affiliate of Sixth Star Travel, we are privileged to be a part of the Virtuoso Network of travel consultants. This is an invitation only network of top 1% worldwide agencies that provides us with resources that simply cannot be matched. Planning a destination wedding in Tahiti and don't know where to start? We can find you the perfect wedding planner that will make your special day extraordinary! Are you looking to stay closer to home and want the best all-inclusive property that fits your specific needs? We have traveled extensively and developed personal relationships to ensure that you get the experience of a lifetime.

Mike made our destination wedding totally effortless and carefree. Our entire guest list had a great experience working with him. Even during our stay and after, he continues to be there for us when we have questions. I would recommend Journeys of Excellence to absolutely anyone.

We turned to Journeys of Excellence to help plan our destination wedding after interviewing several other agencies. What made them stand out was the “personal” care that we felt from the beginning. We worked with Mike and he truly took the time to get to know us. THAT made all the difference. Other agencies started right off trying to sell us their preferred resorts before even getting to know us and our dreams.
Our wedding was PERFECT! The planning was stress free and Mike was so happy to answer any questions through the entire process. We always felt special. Mike’s knowledge was invaluable and if he didn’t know something, he always found the answer. After spending some time with us, he was able to find the perfect destination for our wedding and the perfect property. Mike’s team not only helped us with our travel arrangements, but was also always there to support communication with the wedding planner and resort. They even got us a double upgrade for our room AND so many other extras that we could never have gotten on our own.
All of our guests loved working with Mike and his team. We received absolutely nothing but raving reviews from all of our guests, which was so important to us. Mike’s team was always happy to take our calls even after hours when necessary. They went out of their way to make everyone’s experience excellent. They picked the right name, when they chose Journeys of Excellence as their company name. You have earned our business for our lifetime. Thank you SO much for making our wedding a dream!!

Mike, his knowledge and his services went beyond our expectations. We were thrilled with his resort recommendations in Mexico. He arranged for us to visit a dozen in person on a visit last year. Airfare, transfers and accomodations were all taken care of and stellar. He is easy to reach and quick to respond. The level of service he provide is fantastic. Best of all, he expects that same level of service from the resorts, vendors and excursions he works with. Mike was there to walk us through the entire travel and destination wedding process. He was a true blessing to have by our side and I know that we had a flawless wedding because of him!

Mike has been such a blessing in our lives! It started over a year ago when we contacted Mike about our wish to have a destination wedding. Being the strong communicator and personable person that he is, Mike setup a Skype interview with us so that we could explain our destination wedding vision. Mike explained to us that he's not just a travel agent and that he specializes in top-level travel. Boy was he right. Mike researched and recommended several resorts in the Cancun area and sent us a VERY detailed Powerpoint presentation, highlighting each one. We knew he was special when we reviewed each property and came to the conclusion that he knew EXACTLY what we were looking for.

My wife and I decided that we wanted to visit a few of the resorts to ensure that we pick the best one for our needs. Mike set us up with a 5-day site tour where we visited 14 resorts in Mexico. Going above and beyond, Mike also set us up with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide who traveled with us to each resort, guiding us to ask the right questions. In the process, Mike booked us at the Excellence Riveria Cancun resort for an amazing price. We LOVED the resort so much and had an amazing time, even though we were down there to work.

Mike mentored us through our decision and made us feel confident that we were in the right hands. He went ABOVE AND BEYOND answering our questions, reaching out to resorts, and eventually seeking quotes for each of the finalists. Mike took excellent care of all of our guests and was majorly accommodating to each of them. Our wedding turned out like a dream and we have Mike to thank for a lot of that!

Mike is a top-notch travel agent who builds a strong relationship with his clients. We can stand here today and now call Mike a good friend in life who we can depe

Beyond an unforgettable wedding, the honeymoon was our next most important expense. After tons of planning and saving for months the need to get away and enjoy our first days as husband and wife was extremely important to us. Mike really came through with his travel services. We gave him our budget and he took control of making sure we had a beautifully memorable experience in Hawaii for 12 days! His suggestions were perfect for me and my husband's personalities. We were able to do many fun activities and then rest in pure comfort and very elegant accommodations when we finally exhausted ourselves. The service and amenities at the resorts he chose were perfect and he budgeted our funds so that they stretched to meet our goals. I highly recommend Mike for any couple that wants to have the honeymoon they've always dreamed of without the hassle of planning, especially when you're going for longer than a weekend to a place you've never been and want to limit your risk of making bad choices. We will never forget our trip to paradise.

Everything was provided for me in great detail. My questions were answered in a very timely fashion. They were flexible and understanding and worked with me from beginning to end. I even received follow-up emails to make sure everything went as expected.
Mike was the easiest travel agent to work with. I gave him what I wanted and he provided me with options. He told me he would book whatever I wanted to also provided me insight as to what may or may not work based on my requests. This was invaluable information. It made everything stress free and was by far the easiest of the wedding planning.
I have passed his name on to several friends and will use him again in the future.

Mike Whittaker from Journeys of Excellence (journeysofexcellence.com) made our wedding in Costa Rica magical. We truly had very little planning stress. My now husband and I only had to make decisions regarding (where to get married, where we wanted to eat, chocolate or vanilla cake, etc.) Everything was completely taken care of by the resort, with Mike's direction. Mike took the time to get to know us and recommended, not pushed, ideas our way. He always returned phone calls or e-mails and handled any questions about our trip directly with those in Costa Rica. My parents (in their mid 70's, my two college age kids, and us), spent one week in the paradise. Mike called the resort wedding planner to check up on how stay was going and if we encountered any issues. Everyone of his clients is treated like royalty. It was all beyond perfect. I have never gone out of the country, let alone get married in a foreign land. If you are looking for the perfect wedding location, please ask Mike first. He is the ultimate in romance get-aways. We are planning on returning next year to celebrate our one year anniversary. Thank you Mike.

Well I don’t even know where to start….From the first appt with Mike from Journeys of Excellence until present he has been one of the kindest persons I’ve ever met. He was very understanding, informative, thorough, quick to respond, etc. Without having him help us with our Wedding / Honeymoon process I think we would have been lost. It was not only us that loved Mike, but all of our family and friends who attended. He was there for all of us with our million questions, and very patient with each and every one of us (right Mike?!) We were ecstatic with our choice / his recommendation of El Dorado Royale for our Wedding (week with family and friends) and our Honeymoon (week by ourselves) The resort still has left me speechless. It was very obvious that this resort carries a very high standard for quality. I could go on forever, but Mike you are our favorite (you already know) this was the best trip ever, and we cannot wait to work with you in the future and see where our travels will take us! Sincerely, Amy & Brent Cole

I am the "mother of the bride". My daughter chose to have a destination wedding. I was quite concerned, as I had never been to the resort prior to this. Also, my personality is such that I worry about everything. Mike, from Journeys of Excellence was the best in all regards. He listened to my requests and delivered above and beyond what I had hoped. He took his time with me and answered all my questions and concerns. He walked me through the entire process of the trip. He always took my calls, day or night, and made me feel as though I was his most important client. I cannot say enough about the service that he provided! The wedding was perfect! I recommend him to everyone!
