Why use a travel advisor?
There are many advantages to working with a travel advisor. The biggest advantages are saving you time and peace of mind. With my knowledge, experience, and connections I can put together the perfect vacation for your interests, budget, and travel preferences. I can handle airfare, transfers to your hotel, sightseeing tours, classes, transportation between cities, and so much more. The average person spends over 24 hours planning a vacation. Not everyone has that kind of time. You tell me where and when you want to go, what is important to you when traveling, and what your budget is and I handle the rest!
What is the most important thing for you when you are traveling? Is it seeing the famous sights? Experiencing local culture? Eating ALL the food? Would you like to take a class to learn to cook local dishes or learn a craft special to the area? Perhaps you are interested most in the history of an area and would like to visit museums, ruins, and ancient buildings. Or maybe being outside is ideal for you. Garden tours in Europe, Kayaking in Alaska, and hiking or skiing in the Swiss Alps are all possibilities we can help with.
We have connections with the best cruise lines, tour companies, lodging, and sightseeing tours. We have done extensive training with companies such as G Adventures, UnCruise Adventures, Hurtigrutan, Intrepid and many more. We also have connections within the companies and can answer any and all questions you may have about every aspect of your trip.
We don’t part ways once you’re booked! We are here for you if anything arises during your vacation. Email or call and we will work to get any issues resolved. And we’d love to hear all about your trip once you’ve returned.
We specialize in Active and Adventure travel for all ages and activity levels. We also focus on sustainable travel and work with companies that do the same. The tour and cruise companies we use work hard to make sure they are making a positive impact on the places you visit. They make sure the money you spend on your trip is going to the local economies rather than big corporations. The lodging they use highlights the local areas and food is cooked at local restaurants or by local chefs. Adventure travel to me can be spending more time in nature hiking, kayaking, or snorkeling. Or it can be living like a local and learning all there is to know about the history, customs, and culture of the people that live there. Have you always dreamed of going on an African safari? Kayaking and hiking in Alaska? Learning to cook pasta and make wine in a small village in Italy? Let us make your dreams a reality. Let’s explore the world, learn from other people and cultures, give back to communities we visit, and make lasting memories!
Is there a cost?
Depending on the complexity of the trip and how many hours of planning we anticipate there may be an up front planning fee. This will be discussed at your consultation.
