Biography: Soon after I had started in the travel industry, I acquired a brand new passport. Leaving my children with their father for a few weeks, I took this new passport with no stamps and traveled to England, Copenhagen, France and Italy. What a great feeling this gave to a young girl from a small Utah town, Smithfield. It opened all these doors to me and the whole world came into view right before my eyes! I knew I could go anywhere and it was the most amazing feeling I had ever felt.
The lure of travel led me to explore how I could share my love of travel and develop a meaningful career. There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing my experiences with my clients. Many cherished memories come from travel with my friends and family.
I am familiar with destinations far and wide around the globe. I work hard to find ways to enrich the experience of my clients while on their next exotic adventure; that longed for romantic getaway and the dream of far off places. I listen carefully as my clients describe their dream vacation and create a personalized vacation plan.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did. So throw off the bow lines, sail away from the safe harbor, and catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
"We had gone on many fabulous trips with Black Pearl Luxury services. Marcy Johnson has been the key to the success of ALL our trips. I always know that every detail will be handled, ane don't have to worry about a thing. She put together a fabulous Africa trip, that was one of our best. We travel extensively, and I would not trust anyone to plan our trips but Marcy. I hope she never retires. She is not only the best travel agent we have ever had, she is also a friend after all these years and many, many trips later."
"...can't say enough about the great service Marcia Johnson has provided our family!"
"We have enjoyed working with Marcy for several years. My family of 7 has traveled to Africa, China, and Australia using Black Pearl Services. Everyone of these vacations have been exceptional!! The accomodations and excursions that have been planned for us were a dream come true!! My children will continually reflect back on these trips as amazing 'trips of a lifetime.' We will continue to use Marcy for all of our travels throughout the world! I truly can depend on my expectations being over exceeded!!"
"We have worked with Marcy and Black Pearl Travel Services for many years. The service provided to our family has been outstanding and always involved a lot of moving parts. In 2008 Marcy and Black Pearl put together an African safari for ten of us through South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana - outstanding camps, safe travels and good pricing. Last year we spent a week in Turkey traveling through Istanbul, Cappadocia (cave hotels and hot air balloons), Ephesus (ancient ruins)and Bo drum (sailing on a pirate ship-sort). Marcy also booked a terrific cruise last fall though the Baltic Sea. We regularly recommend Marcy and Black Pearl to our friends."
