African Travel, Business and Wellness Travel

I have been in the Travel and Tourism industry for over 25 years now.  Some of my first memories of travel are of my father taking me for a plane ride over Long Island in a friend's Cessna plane. I was around 5 years old, and I remember, once getting up in the sky, looking out of the window, trying to locate where my house was! I realized then that the world was so much bigger than I had ever imagined; Or driving alongside the beautiful Hudson River, on our way to the Adirondacks to visit our Friends' dairy farm; Or frequenting Jones Beach after hours when the crowds had left and wondering, "Who's all the way on the other side of this vast Ocean?"; Or hopping on a Subway going into Manhattan, and then taking the Staten Island Ferry to visit family. One of my most impressionable experiences, was when around 8 years old we went on a school trip to JFK and going into that hanger, gazing in awe at those huge aircraft.

I grew up 30 minutes from and in the flight path of J.F.K.  The planes flew low enough for us to read the name of the Airlines on the planes.  The Concord, luxury, high-speed aircraft, with service between New York and London, would fly over several times a week.  It was fascinating and sometimes annoying.  It was so loud and powerful, that we could hear it before it approached, and items in the house would vibrate.

Hence, I find myself in the very rewarding industry of Travel and Tourism.  As a Certified Travel Associate, I have extensive knowledge and experience in planning incredible and memorable vacations and itineraries.   I am pleased to announce that Legacy Travel and Tours LLC is a H.U.B and MWSBE Certified company in Charlotte, N.C.  

Not sure exactly where you want to go? Do you find yourself spending hours online, going down the Rabbit Hole of researching vacations?   Let me save you a lot of time and frustration and provide you with a hassle-free planning experience.  I can assist you with Culture, History, and Adventure, Individual and Group Travel, Cruises, Romance, Corporate and Wellness travel, and more.

I have traveled to Africa, The Bahamas, The Caribbean, Bermuda, Egypt, England, Ghana, Hawaii, Kenya, Paris, Rome, and Mexico.  

I recently had the honor of becoming a "Caregiver" for a loved one. Many Caregivers do not realize the importance of incorporating self-care into their lives. If you don't take care of yourself, you won't be able to care for others. A Wellness trip may be just what you need.

"Wellness Travel" is currently the fastest-growing sector in the tourism industry.  We are assisting clients who are interested in travel that may include healthy food, movement in the form of yoga, fitness or other activities, some form of rest and relaxation, access to spaces conducive to peace and quiet, something to soothe the mind (time in nature, meditation, etc.), and a good night’s sleep.   

So, are you ready to start planning your next trip, but need a little help? Give me a call.  I would love to be a part of your travel plans!

Wonderful Honeymoon!
We had an excellent experience working with Maureen planning our honeymoon trip. We had to make a few changes along the way due to the pandemic and she was so patient and accommodating to our needs and requests. She was readily available to answer any of our questions and provided us with updates and a checklist of things to do for our international trip. Her travel suggestions made our trip effortless. We highly suggest Maureen for any of your travel needs.

Trip of a Lifetime
Maureen did an amazing job making our trip to Kenya memorable. She listened to our wants and needs and made it happen. She was always available before we left to answer any questions or make changes as necessary. When we arrived at our destination, everything was taken care of. She planned it perfectly. We couldn't have been happier.

Great Vacation
I went on a cruise on the Norwegian Jade with my friend in April to the Greek Islands and Turkey. I am very happy with Maureen as a travel agent. I liked that everything was pre planned and pre-paid so that I had no worries about our cruise. I felt that she took good care of us and made sure that we met deadlines. For example, she gave us notification as to when to check in.
I will definitely call Maureen when booking my next cruise.
