When traveling, I find that I am always overcome with an awareness that hundreds–perhaps even thousands–of years ago, someone stood exactly where I’m standing, touched the things I touched…Experiencing a new destination connects us to those that came before us in a way that is both shared and uniquely our own. What connects you?
My passion for travel started at an early age, when each year my family hosted exchange students from countries including Japan, Germany, France and Israel. Eventually I became that young exchange student. At 16, I lived with a family in a small town in Brazil, and later, in college, spent an academic year in Madrid, taking all my coursework in Spanish; exploring the art, food, and pulse of the city; and traveling around Europe at every

What My Clients Are Saying
Easy and fun! She is a pleasure to work with, so thorough in her planning. Responds immediately even if she doesn't have all the answers. Wants you to have a great trip every time and follow up to make sure it was.
Shari was fantastic to work with. She was responsive, flexible, organized, and completely nailed what we were looking for! Our trip to Greece was by far the best trip we have ever been on. It was so smooth and easy and we loved all aspects of it: from the hotels, to the private tours, to the transportation - it far exceeded our expectations. We also found the app incredibly helpful and used it a lot. There is no way I could have planned a trip like this on my own, and I'm so grateful Shari was able to help us. I highly recommend her and we will use her again!
Working by with Shari was delightful! She attended to every imaginable detail, personally reached out to make sure we had everything we needed during the entirety of our vacation, and followed up after we got home. Her attention to our preferences made way for astute recommendations, and she adeptly used humor and gentle insistence to make sure we were thoroughly prepared before we left. We couldn't recommend a more capable advisor!
Shari was a delight to work with. She was thoughtful, patient and knowledgeable. She is detail oriented and went out of her way to make sure our reservations were handled correctly. Not only will I use Shari for ever future vacation, but so will my friends that joined me on this perfect get away retreat.
I can't say enough great things about the service i was provided by Shari and Lake Shore Travel. Shari was amazingly thorough, efficient, and extremely detail oriented. Her initial suggestion to go on Backroads.com was so fantastic. I had never thought to go on a group/solo adventure tour before -- the trip worked out flawlessly for me and went off without a hitch. Couldn't have asked for a better experience top to bottom. Would definitely be a repeat customer and use Lake Shore for all my travel moving forward. Thank you.
Shari did a wonderful job giving us great options and sound recommendations. I will never plan a trip to Europe again without having a private tour guide for the trip. Shari was able to find affordable, reliable friendly people to provide us with a much more meaningful time. The information she provided was accurate and saved me hours of planning in advance. I will certainly use her again.
Shari is very knowledgable and provides excellent friendly service. She was extremely helpful with everything and any questions we had. I would highly recommend Shari as a travel advisor. She is easy to work with and always available.
