About Us

My passion for travel is from where this business was born. My travel experiences are the base and I build on that base through constant education. Through certification classes, meetings, webinars, conventions and trade shows. I spend many weeks each year traveling on ships, visiting new countries, inspecting hotels and resorts. I believe experience is the best teacher and actually 'being there' is what propels us above the competition. I wrap it all together with personalized customer service for a truly seamless experience.

Jolly Mon Vacations is owned and operated by Pete Larson of Grand Forks, ND. With my wife Cindy, family members and friends, we have traveled the globe and experienced many of our travel dreams. Our travel experiences directly benefit our clients and we will continue to add to this growing foundation each year. I have now been to over 30 different countries, with repeated visits to many.
