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?



Service and Resources. 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 with resorts and wedding planners to ensure that you get the experience of a lifetime.

Do you want to risk such an important trip or event by working with anyone but the best? Our Service and Resources are next to none!

Mike has been an absolute amazing liaison to work with while booking our honeymoon. He helped us stay within budget and get us everything we wanted and more. He was even able to get us lots of free upgrades to help make our honeymoon even more special. I cannot recommend him enough!

We were referred to Mike by a friend and we couldn't have been more pleased! Our honeymoon was over the top amazing. He really does sit down and listen to exactly what you want in a vacation and than makes all your honeymoon dreams come true. We have already passed his information on to 3 other couples.

I spoke with a few different travel agents before deciding to use Mike's services. After our initial two plus hour conversation there was no doubt that even though Mike resided in Florida, and I was in Texas, he was the one for the job. I am a true Type A personality and have high standards...hence, the Five Star Resorts we were considering having our wedding at along with 25 guests. Mike helped us find the perfect match for our wants/desires, negotiated rates, communicated with our guest as well as handled their rooms, travel and transfers. Mike was part of every single communication I had with the resort in the decision making and planning of our rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception, spa services, golf needs, sightseeing, etc. Honestly, I had zero worries with Mike at the helm. That's just the way a bride wants it.

Our honeymoon at the Excellence Playa Mujeres was pure bliss and paradise thanks to Mike's help in finding the perfect resort for us. It was the most relaxing, luxurious and adventurous week of our lives together, and all without any worry or stress in the planning. From the first time I reached out to Mike I could tell that he was genuine and passionate about travel. His interpersonal skills and customer service are top notch, and immediately I knew he was someone we could entrust with the most special trip of our lives together. He made the honeymoon planning the easiest box to check off on my wedding "To Do" list, and for that I will be forever grateful. Even when it seemed we may run into issues with the resort of our choosing, Mike made sure that we got exactly what we wanted without overpaying. His friendly attitude and heart of service made working with him a true pleasure. We absolutely cannot wait to work him again on future trips!

Had a great experience with Mike. He listened to what we were looking for and our budget and provided us with various options that would fit those. He provided us some great insight on some resorts in the destination we were looking at, and was able to get us some awesome upgrades that we would have absolutely not been able to have had we not booked with him. Overall, our honeymoon experience was fantastic. I would definitely book with Mike again if we go on a similar trip. Thanks for everything!

Planning a wedding all through emails is very taxing but a destination wedding can be a beautiful experience. Keep ALL emails and keep contact with your guests! Having a wedding travel coordinator is a good cushion between you and the resort because if you have any issues they will look out for you as Journeys did for our wedding.

Working with Mike and Journeys of Excellence was a fantastic experience!! We never would have found the resort we visited (El Dorado Casitas in Riviera Maya, Mexico) without his recommendation and we certainly wouldn't have experienced the upgrades and added benefits of booking through one of the resorts preferred travel agents. Mike listened to our requests and how we described our perfect honeymoon and worked within our budget to suggest several options to us. He took care of all flight and car transportation - it was so nice in the middle of wedding planning to let someone else make the arrangements for the honeymoon. All we had to do was show up where he'd told us.
While we were at the resort, we could see the difference in our booking experience and that of another couple who had also booked through a travel agent. Because Journeys of Excellence has such repor with this resort company, our room had been upgraded and was ready early (the other couple's was not).
My in-laws worked with Mike behind the scenes to pay the balance on our trip - unknown to us. He worked with them to keep it a secret from us, and they were just as satisfied as we were to work with Journeys of Excellence.
I highly recommend using Journeys of Excellence for any travel booking! They have the experience of visiting the locations they recommend and are professional and genuinely invested in your having a great experience.

Mike was absolutely amazing! He did a great job of matching our personalities to the perfect Honeymoon vacation in Mexico and also in our price range. He went the extra mile to make our trip one we will never forget. We really hope we can go back again for an anniversary and we will be booking through Mike. He also planned my bachelorette cruise and was a great help with making sure our rooms were close to each other and everything was organized. I would definitely recommend working with Mike to plan your anniversary or honeymoon!
