We are pleased to welcome Mary Beth Kurasek to our team! She has been planning special tours for Central Illinois travelers for 15 years.

Stevie Jay & Janet have been leading tours for over 20 years and have teamed up with Bill Owen, 46-year veteran tour designer and former owner of Franklin Travel. We create unique getaways for your special interest or organization, leaving right from the Champaign area or wherever your group is located.

We have experience working with Associations, Banks, Company, Churches, Media, Reunions, Schools, Senior & other clubs. We have designed hundreds of package and custom tours, plus cruises and combinations of the above. 

From having led dozens of tours personally, we understand the importance of considering how to make it easier for you.

Our goal is to design a whole experience from start to your return giving you the right level of inclusions and free time. And throughout we are in touch to meet your needs in assembly, departure, while away and on the way back—we're with you all the way.
