People travel for different reasons and it's my mission to ensure they aren't disappointed in the trips they entrust me to help create.  I take a bit of an empathetic approach in my planning.  After a brief consultation, I plan my client's journey as if it's a trip that I'll be taking.  Keeping your budget, desires and expectations in mind while I work to create your vacation. 


As a specialist I had to complete and pass all mandated tourism boards courses.  As well, I continue my education with regular destinations trainings.  I also find networking with various tour operators and other travel suppliers beneficial so I am up to date on such things as new tours and special offers that could be of interest to my clients.  My networking is done with office visits, webinars and attending trade shows and conferences.  However, I feel that in order to give my client's true guidance I need to experience a country myself.  So, I visit each of the countries I focus on as regularly as possible. 


One of my greatest joys is hearing from my client's after they've returned home telling me how much they enjoyed their travels.  I hope to one day have such a conversation with you. 


Please feel free to contact me when you're ready to start planning your next dream trip. 


 


 


 

Client testimonial

We first used Wally at Signature Destinations back in 2005 on our trip to Beijing, China. The trip went off without a hitch and was so smooth that we used Wally as our personal travel agent to book our subsequent trips to South Africa, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand. The biggest trip Wally has done for us was a 28 country, Round-the-World itinerary that he expertly booked and was PERFECT! Wally is a true travel professional and knows his stuff and has never led us astray and has gotten us out of several binds overseas. We have recommended him to all of our friends and family and will never book an overseas trip without him! .... Carmen B.

Great memories of a great trip
It was our good fortune to work with Wally Jones to arrange our trip to Australia.
One of the things that impressed us the most was the way Wally listened to us so he could customize our trip around our interests.
The accommodations he booked for us were all top notch and included an upscale bungalow on the Queensland coast and a lovely boutique hotel on the waterfront of Hobart.
Wally also had loads of practical tips, ranging from how to navigate the airports to some of the best places to shop in Sydney. He also handled our arrangements for a rental car for the week we spent in Tasmania.
All told, Wally worked with us for weeks, revising our itinerary as we tweaked our schedule. Throughout the process, Wally was easy to contact, thoroughly professional and always friendly.
Thanks to Wally, our trip was amazing in every way, and we came home with incredible memories. We couldn’t be happier with the results, and we’re already talking with Wally about another trip next year!

Better Than I Could Have Expected!
Absolutely GREAT! He spent a lot of time getting to know what I would like out of my trip (even before I really knew what I wanted) Very little effort needed on my part, Wally took care of it all for a seamless experience for a first time traveler! I'll definitely be booking my next trip with him!

Wally is a Travel Leader
I have been working with Wally Jones for 12 years. I use Wally to book travel for an executive team with a heavy and complicated travel schedule. Wally has extensive travel knowledge both in Domestic and International travel. He always goes the extra mile to make sure everything is in order for our team and uses his local contacts to make sure they have the best travel experience possible. I recommend Wally without hesitation.
