Joy Gawf-Crutchfield Travel Agent and Agency Owner, The Joy of Travel

From the first time I went to Europe I was hooked. History, culture, cuisine, adventure; European travel has it all. I am an expert in European travel and personally escort tours of Europe almost every year.

My travel style in Europe varies from river cruises to escorted tours to independent travel. I am a Viking Master Agent, an AMA Waterways Specialist, a Globus Family of Brands Top 50 Elite Agent, an Avalon Waterways Specialist, a Globus Escorted Tour Expert, a CIE Expert, a Cosmos Expert, Monograms MBA and even more.

Last year I arranged a vow renewal under the Eiffel Tower for a lovely couple celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. In December 2018 I took 78 people on a Rhine River cruise Christmas Market trip. In 2020 I am personally escorting 88 guests on a tour of Greece followed by a 3 night Aegean cruise. I have the skills and contacts necessary to provide the perfect European experience for you, whatever that might be.

I am a huge fan of escorted tours and try to escort one every year. Escorted tours are available all over the world, and I would love to help you select the one that's perfect for you. Asia, the USA and Canada, South America, Europe of course and even Hawaii. Escorted tours are everywhere, and they're terrific!

When I'm not traveling all over the world I'm relaxing on a tropical beach in paradise. Planning romance travel is another type of travel that I love and in which I am very experienced.

If you’re interested in a list of the places I’ve been here it is. Take your time, it’s extensive: Italy, Greece, Ephesus, Rhodes, Istanbul, Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Capri, Patmos, all over France, completely around Ireland, Wales, Scotland, all over England, The Netherlands, Belgium, all over Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic. I've been to the Dominican Republic and Jamaica as well as St. Thomas, St. John, St. Lucia, Nassau, Grand Cayman, Puerto Rico, Curacao, and Aruba, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Akumal, Tulum, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Isla Mujeres. WHEW! I hope I didn't forget any.

As far as United States travel, I am a South Dakota expert having traversed it with the South Dakota Tourism Board (1400 miles). I've escorted fall foliage tours along our Northeast Coast, as well as groups on Alaskan Cruises. I've toured the Canadian Rockies, and the U.S. Rocky Mountains as well.

You thought I was exaggerating, I know. But I really have spent a lifetime "going there, doing that" and would love to help you do the same!
