My Story:


My love affair with travel began in my thirties when I embarked on my first adventure packaged land tour visiting 7 countries in Europe in 2 weeks. That transformative experience ignited a spark within me, fueling my desire to explore new cultures, taste exotic cuisines, meet new friends, and immerse myself in the beauty of diverse landscapes.

From the moment you reach out to me until your return home, I am dedicated to providing unparalleled support, expert advice, and personalized service.

UK, Scotland & Ireland 2018
This was my first trip alone and Katherine was very helpful in easing both mine and my parents stress and ensuring that I had the best time by making sure all the little things were checked off. She regularly checked in with me while on my trip to make sure it was going smoothly and was genuinely interested in where I went and what we did that day and answered multiple questions in the days leading up to departure.

Katherine was over the top when it came to excellence . She was very attentive to everyones needs (there were 10 of us) and strived to accommodate everyones special requests. She sent us on our way with a travel guide and a few extra treats, kept in touch with us during our stay at one of her recommended resorts- the Luxury Grand Bahai Principe, and followed up after the vacation to ensure everything went as planned. Excellent service-Thank you Katherine
