Michele Lanthier:  Owner & Travel Agent

I have been passionately involved in the travel industry for almost 25 years, helping thousands of clients book their vacations. I am as enthusiastic in helping a client plan a vacation as they are. I thrive on the joy a couple, a group of friends or a multi-generational family can share on a vacation, celebrating milestones and making lasting memories. It is important to me to listen to your vacation dreams and turn them into a reality.

As a child, I enjoyed traveling and making memories with my own family. We were members of a camping club that would meet in a different state each summer. My most cherished memory during that time was being in Philadelphia for the bicentennial and touching the Liberty bell. Annual vacations eventually accumulated to 45 states and 4 provinces of Eastern Canada. Now, I continue the camping fun with my husband at our favorite getaway, the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, where we can hike to waterfalls and enjoy nature.

Early in life, I was bitten by the travel bug and combined with my love of world geography and cultures, I followed my passion to travel school. I graduated from the Central Florida Academy of Travel in Orlando, Florida in 1995 and have been working in the industry ever since. I first started as a vacation specialist at a well-known travel company, FunJet Vacations. While in this position, I helped clients plan and book their vacation packages throughout the Caribbean and North & Central America.

I also worked for many other well-respected travel companies such as Universal Studios Vacations, Travel Planners International and Cruises-N-More. I have been involved in many ship inspections with Carnival, MSC, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise lines. During this time, I achieved over 100+ specialist certifications with most cruise lines and many destinations including Australia and most of Europe.

Tina Peper:  Travel Agent

After working in the real estate and financial industries, helping numerous clients find their first homes and investment properties for 20+ years, I decided to join the exciting travel industry. I graduated from Galiano Travel Academy in Altamonte Springs, Florida in 1998. It is most rewarding to work with happy, ambitious people to plan their dream vacations!

I grew up in Boston and my family did not travel much. Our longest trip was to relocate to Florida, where I immediately fell in love with Disney World. While raising 3 kids with my husband, we cruised through the Eastern Caribbean, traveled throughout the Southeast US, visited Las Vegas and Key West a few times. I have received specialists’ certifications from the Alaska and Hawaii tourism boards. I am also a Disney Specialist and a New England fall foliage expert. I enjoy helping clients plan their vacations with attention to details and I love to hear all the exciting stories when they return!

Please contact me at to help with that special trip or cruise!
