Beautiful Bermuda
Beautiful Bermuda

Years ago, as a young woman, I headed off the college not quite sure what direction my life was headed.  I spent about a year and a half doing what I had to do in school but honestly was very bored.  Someone suggested I explore the Travel and Tourism program. 

That was one of the best piece of advice I was ever given! 

Learning about all the wonderful places on our beautiful planet was simply exciting!!  I graduated with my degree in Travel and Tourism and never looked back. 

35 years later - I own Wilcox Travel Leaders!!

Every aspect of travel planning excites me.  From corporate travel to vacation travel.  I take pride in getting the corporate traveler from point A to point B with efficiency and cost effectiveness.  At the same time, I get excited helping in the planning of a vacation of a life time. 

No matter what your travel needs - I'm here to help you get it done with expertise and knowledge.

Walt Disney Family Fun

Walt Disney has created a World for everyone!  Taking a family vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida was a memory filled adventure for the entire family.  We played hard, had a ton of fun, laughed and smiled and sang and at the end of the day slept very well!  Everything that Disney does they do...Read more.

Memorable trip to Greece.
This was our first time working with a travel agent. Maria communicated with us professionally and promptly through all aspects of planning the trip. We were extremely pleased with her choice of hotels and arrangement of transportation (ferry and taxi) in each location. We would highly recommend Maria and Wilcox Travel to anyone considering a trip to Europe and beyond!

Perfect Honeymoon Trip
Maria has helped us with more than just our latest trip and has always been amazing to work with for vacations/our honeymoon! She had great recommendations for our honeymoon and gave us great service. She recommended the Club MoBay VIP services for the airport arrival and departure- it was well worth the money. I am so glad we didn't try to just book something online and do it ourselves because we may have never known about the great services available. We will be using her for more trips to come!

Amazing Italy
I recently worked with Maria to plan a multigenerational trip to Italy for a family of 14 and the experience was extraordinary. Throughout the planning process, Maria was easily accessible and always returned phone calls/emails in a very timely fashion. Maria planned a 12 day Italian adventure and provided our family with a variety of experiences and memories to last a lifetime. The trip was first class and this was a result of the dedication that went into coordination of flights, transportation, accommodations, tours, and meals. Our family will be forever grateful for the long lasting memories of our Italian Adventure!
