Little-known destinations such as Jaffna in the North of Sri Lanka, El Nido Pangalusian Island in the Philippines and Mexico’s ancient Mayan city of Yaxchilan are among everything from tiny towns to palm-flecked beaches what about those hidden islands off croatia?

Best Getaway with my Hubs!!
Shannon always talks with us to get a feel for what we want in each of our trips. She researches the area to find our interests and gives us several options for us to choose from. Shannon has booked cruises, kid weekend getaways and romantic trips. We have LOVED every trip!!

Awesome travel agent.
Shannon does an excellent job creating our trips. If she doesn’t know an answer to a question, she will find out. She is thorough and considerate of what we want in travel.

Shannon is the best!!
So excited to take our Norwegian Cruise this year. We loved working with Shannon to book our trip. Shannon listened to our needs and made several suggestions. We were able to select the best option and price point for us. I love Elite Travel and I have been scheduling my travels for years, however, I have to say Shannon went above and beyond to meet my vacation needs.
