Joy by Journey will help you create memorable travel experiences that bring joy to your life. No matter where in the world you want to go, we can help you get there. We specialize in unique destinations like Egypt, Turkey, Thailand, and those on everyone's bucket list; Italy, Greece, and Ireland. Whether you are honeymooners looking for a romantic, stress-free experience, a solo traveler interested in joining a group tour, or a multi-generational family looking for the ultimate holiday, let Joy by Journey curate the perfect itinerary for you.
You can expect a few things when you work with Joy by Journey-prompt responses, an eagle eye for detail, and a customized approach to your specific travel style. We take the time to answer your questions and listen to your ideas before making expert recommendations that fit your budget.
In the internet age, you can certainly book on your own. But Googling your way to a vacation is an overwhelming experience and a recipe for dissatisfaction. We have the relationships with suppliers and destination experience to ensure your satisfaction.
What you may not realize is that the cost of using a travel agency is built into the cost of a tour, cruise, all-inclusive resort, hotel, rental car, and even trip insurance. So, in effect, you are paying for a travel advisor whether you use one or not. And, online booking platforms are agencies (think big-box stores) just without personalized service. You deserve more than that!
Our honeymoon in Italy was the vacation of a lifetime! From floating around Venetian canals to sipping wine in Tuscany, Italy was the perfect place to begin our life together.
Egypt may not be on the top of everyone's bucket list but it should! I felt the 5,000 year legacy of the pharaohs as I explored the Pyramids of Giza, cruised down the Nile, and visited King Tut's tomb.
Cruising is a perfect way to explore Alaska’s wild coastal plains, towering snow-capped mountains, and glacier-rimmed fjords.
Turkey is my all-time favorite destination. Volcanic landscapes, ancient, sunken cities, and 4,000 years of rich culture and traditions, Turkey is an incredible destination where the cultures of two continents collide.
China is positively massive by every conventional measure. The diversity of hiking the Great Wall to exploring the forbidden city to meeting the Terra-Cotta Warriors was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
A trip to New York is all about the food. This is my favorite restaurant, Don Peppe's, in Jamaica Queens.
