Maureen JohnsonEuropean Specialist

My travel specialties include Spain and especially Madrid as well as Portugal and France.


See France through my eyes, and you will know there is so much more to it than Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Each year I visit quaint villages and iconic cities I thought only existed in dreams, and I have found that French people are a delight when you understand the culture.

I planned 50 trips last year alone; with my tips for interacting with people, you will be able to win the heart of any Frenchman.

Travel lets us connect with others through the very things we have in common everywhere-culture, history, art, and food; I can show you the best that France has to offer of all these things. Visit Sainte-Chapelle, the most spectacular and oft-overlooked church that used to house the Crown of Thorns, or so say the legends. I must insist that you try the best ice cream in all of Europe, tucked away in a shop behind Notre Dame, and that at least once you order the dessert-a plate of the most divine cheeses you may ever taste! Contact me today for your authentic France experience.


With so much to see in Italy, how do you decide where to start? Call me and I will help you find a beautiful resort on the Amalfi Coast, the right places to stay and see in Rome, Tuscany from the eyes of the locals, the stunning Cinque Terre, and more.

If you want to see Juliet’s balcony, the Last Supper, and take a Gondola ride while being serenaded in Venice I have the inside track. I can help you find a wine tour, a cooking class, or a beachside resort to just relax. Perhaps I was an Italian in my dreams.
Every time I go to Italy, I feel like I am going home.  The people and the land, call to me with their unique story, as told through food, wine, and streets where the ancients walked. Together we will plan a trip of a lifetime.
