A bit more about me...

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...

Australia Travel Specialist

For such a young nation, Australia sure does have plenty to offer visitors.

You should no doubt see the country’s icons such as the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, and Uluru (aka Ayers Rock, but please call it Uluru).  But beyond that, the country has so much more to extend to the...

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.

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!

Very well organized first trip to London and Paris
Wally was easy to work with. He took a generous amount of time to speak with me on the phone multiple times during the process of planning my vacation. He has knowledge of very good tour companies and reliable transportation companies to provide services where I traveled (London/Paris). Wally made it very easy for me by emailing a final grouping of vouchers that I printed and took with me on my trip. These vouchers not only acted as tickets in some cases, but also were a good way for me to remember my scheduled events. Because of the help Wally provided me, my trip was much easier and stress free. This was my first time to both London and Paris, so having the help of someone who has been there before, and understands the best ways to plan, was invaluable.

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!
