Testimonials

"When it comes to travel, whether for business or pleasure, we wholeheartedly recommend MJ Elite Travel for their professionalism and expertise in crafting impeccable travel experiences. Their attention to detail and dedication to ensuring customer satisfaction set them apart from others in the industry."

CONWAY & MATT / DANUBE RIVER CRUISE & PRAGUE

"We had MJ Travel book a food tour with a local in Venice, and a boat tour to Murano, Burano, and Torcello. WORTH EVERY PENNY!! Our guide on the food tour told us how to avoid tourist traps and took us to truly authentic establishments. Our guide for the boat tour was enjoying the tour as much as we were. Very knowledgeable and friendly."

DENNY FAMILY / ITALY

"We recently enjoyed a 2 week Holland America cruise in the South Pacific. MJ Elite arranged several shore excursions for us that were far superior to the excursions offered thru the cruise line. As we progressed thru this trip Marnie was in daily contact with each of the operators of the shore excursions to make sure everything went along as planned.

We are very appreciative of their extra efforts in planning and follow thru !!"

Our Team

Our team grew from a mutual love of travel. Planning was always a big part of the experience and excitement. When friends and family began asking us for recommendations for their own trips, we realized this could be our dream to help others on their journeys. With a 30 year background working in the travel industry combined with our own personal travels, we have the understanding and know-how to make your travel experience the best it can be.

Marnie, with her deep-rooted love for travel and a degree in Culinary Arts, brings a unique perspective to each itinerary. Growing up in a Navy family ignited her wanderlust early on, and her culinary skills now add an unforgettable flavor to our trips. Whether it’s uncovering a local dining gem or experiencing a city’s culture through its food, Marnie ensures every trip tantalizes the taste buds as much as it enriches the spirit.


Jason, on the other hand, discovered the transformative power of travel thanks to his adventures with Marnie. Formerly absorbed in the retail business, his first trip to Paris was a revelation that turned into a passion for exploring new destinations. Now, he’s all about sharing that sense of wonder with others. Jason's journey from a business-focused mindset to a travel enthusiast adds a relatable touch to our travel planning.


Together, they form the heart of MJ Elite Travel. Offering personalized, meticulously planned trips, they blend their expertise to craft unparalleled travel experiences. Their approach is about understanding what makes each client tick and translating that into a journey packed with memorable, authentic experiences. With a focus on culture, culinary delights, and the less-trodden path, Marnie and Jason are passionate about making your travel dreams a reality, ensuring a personal touch in every detail.
