Plan Your Perfect Vacation started in 2016 with one mission: To Inspire People To See The World. 

Samantha Schultz, is the owner and lead travel planner, and she loves to connect with clients that prioritize experiences and know that personalized details make all the difference when discovering somewhere new.

Her passion for seeing the world started during college when she took her first 6 week trip to Europe.  From there, she has continued to travel and experience the world in a way she could never have imagined and has now traveled to all 7 continents and over 70 countries and counting.

Traveling the globe has and continues to change her in so many ways.  This is why she loves sharing it with all of you and hopes to have the opportunity to Inspire You To See The World.

So where in the world have I been traveling?  Have questions about a certain location in the world?

Countries and Islands on all 7 Continents

The fascination and intrigue of learning about different cultures and how different parts of the world live grows more and more every day. There isn’t a place I haven’t loved exploring and learning from!  I’ve had the opportunity to travel alone, with tour groups, and with my husband Jeremy – all of these trips were a combination of plane, train, bus, ship, you name it! It’s amazing how any trip can be created to meet the needs of how you like to travel!
