The Gift of Travel

Because everyone deserves the trip of a lifetime

Time with family, and friends that feel like family, is priceless. A trip to a bucket list destination or experience is a favorite to receive and to give. 

When it comes to thinking of new ideas for birthdays or something extra special for that milestone birthday- have you ever considered a Sumo Training Experience? The training sessions last a couple of hours, starting with a warm up followed by technique practice.

The highlight of the sumo training is the game of ‘King of the Castle’ where two battlers spar nonstop until one is eventually defeated. Planning your trip with MVT means you have more time to be immersed in the experience, and you get the most out of your time spent.  

Why Use a Travel Agent? 

Booking with an MVT travel advisor means gaining access to insider knowledge- like where to watch sumo wrestlers train in Tokyo!

For close-to-home getaways or far-away trips of a lifetime, an MVT advisor is your resource for the insight you need to plan a safe, successful, and unforgettable vacation. 

A travel advisor ensures you make the most of your time. Take the edge off of navigating a foreign airport with meet and greet services or special welcome amenities and VIP status. 

Viva Las Vegas

Go big or go home; Vegas is going to be making headlines with the Formula 1 races in November and Superbowl LVIII in 2024. With the debut of the MSG Sphere, a globeshaped concert hall enrobed with 580,000 square feet of LEDs, Vegas is poised to shine brighter than ever.

Besides being a popular wedding destination, Vegas is great for a milestone birthday, annual conference, and of course the pre-wedding bachelorette parties. If planned correctly, your group can stay in the same hotel and everything from dinner and a show can be walking distance! 

Cruising to Getaway

Sometimes the easiest way to travel with a large group is on a cruise. Unpack just once visit different cities together. Cruising makes getting there fun, and it could be less stressful than the airport experience. 

Go to the Galapagos on Silversea 

Not much can compare to crossing a destination off your bucket list with your best friends. Luxury cruising with Silversea is designed for the planet’s most remote regions. Their ships offer a beguiling sense of open space in their public areas while fostering an intimate atmosphere.
