Our Story

Nearly 60 years ago, Jack R. Schmitt began his career in the travel industry.  His legacy lives on through his son John R. Schmitt, who grew their original single agency to five agencies in mid-Michigan.  Most recently in 2020, John R. Schmitt and his daughter Abby M. Schimke opened Grand Traverse Travel, with the vision to better serve Northern Michigan with 5-star service and personalized opportunities to see the world.

Our Mission

We are passionate about travel...and we want you to see the world.  Grand Traverse Travel provides travelers and their families highly personalized expertise and advise, as well as execution they can trust.  Our approach to planning luxury travel experiences provides uncompromised service and attention to detail.
