Ingrid Schmitt Ream

Lapeer, MI

Luxury and Group Travel Specialist for 42 years!

Let me craft your next luxury or group vacation! I promise your journey will be filled with unique experiences, inspiring sights, and renowned service you deserve.

Because you may just have one chance to visit certain destinations during your lifetime, you should explore them in the right way -- seeing unique attractions and really getting to know the people and culture. So don't waste your money and time jostling with hordes of tourists. Instead, allow me to create a customized itinerary for you that will show you what is special about the destination you are visiting and plan a purposeful trip to reconnect with family and loved ones. 

As social distancing guidelines relax and hotels and destinations make plans to reopen, we’re facing a new normal for travel – at least for a little while. Things might seem a little confusing and overwhelming now. Cancellation policies with suppliers are more flexible now understanding how things are often changing. That's why working with an experienced agent is more important than ever to give you peace of mind! It's best to trust an expert who knows all the latest developments and rules.

In addition to Australia (my favorite), I have also traveled to countless destinations around the world, including but not limited to:

  • South America
  • Panama
  • Ireland
  • Egypt
  • Greece
  • United Kingdom/Scotland/Wales
  • Hawaii
  • Europe
  • Hong Kong/Taiwan
  • Caribbean (Aruba, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, St Maarten, St Thomas/St John, Puerto Rico Dominican Republic, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas )
  • Costa Rica
  • Mexico
  • and most recently a Crystal Cruise through Alaska where I did several fishing excursions by float plane and cooked our catch in an open campfire! 

And in addition to consulting you from my years of experience and as a Certified Travel Counselor since 1989, I will also be there for you if things don't go as expected.

So when you're ready to experience traveling at its best, contact me. I will use my experience and expertise to create a vacation that is beyond what you could have dreamed about on your own.

Amazing trip
Ingrid is an amazing person! She did so much to help us book our vacation to Hawaii, and helped us with Hawaii state covid restrictions rules. She’s very helpful and professional! We will definitely work with her again!

You won't be disappointed
Above and beyond is a phrase used often in customer service reviews. Ingrid definitely fits this description, but it isn't enough to describe her!
Nowadays, most people book their trips by themselves using travel apps. However, your not guaranteed the personal experience you will receive with Ingrid. She will make you feel you are dealing with a friend and not a travel agent. She makes sure all your needs are attended to.

Her communication skills are off the charts. Whenever I or my sisters reached out to her, she would respond within minutes. Either through email or a phone call. She made sure I understood every aspect of my trip. I will be booking all my future trips with Ingrid. You should too!
