Group-Luxury-Adventure Travel Specialist

I've been in the business of helping Wedding Groups,  Spring Break groups and families make memories through travel since 1987.  I have seen a lot of changes but one thing that never changes is people love to travel and explore the world. With our long winters, my customers love to get away to a warm and sunny destination like Cancun or Puerto Vallarta Mexico; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica just to bask in the sun and relax.  

I like to focus on adventure, some destinations are  Belize, Africa, Costa Rica. Adventure and Experiential travel really go hand in hand. You as a traveler want to see and experience the culture and cities you visit.

Dana thought of everything!

Reviewed By Sandra - Minneapolis | Traveled to
Dana helped my husband and I plan a trip to Paris with our kids. Not only did she find us great lodging, she also thought to suggest and book sightseeing tours and skip the line admissions, the result of which probably saved us hours and hours of waiting in line. She was incredibly patient and responsive. I've recommended Dana to several people!

AfricA

Reviewed By Joe and Joan - Wyoming MN | Traveled to Africa
Recently my husband and I traveled to Africa on a trip of a lifetime. We were very excited for the vacation and used Dana Blankenship at Travel Experts for all of the planning and details. Our trip included a photographic Safari, a visit to Victoria Falls including a helicopter trip over the Falls, a trip to the Cape of Good Hope to see the penguin colony and to go shark cage diving. It took a lot of careful planning. Our African adventure was everything we had hoped for and more!! The trip came off without a hitch. All flights, transports and excursions were well planned and timely. We were able to sit back and experience the beauty of Africa!! I would highly recommend Dana Blankenship and Travel Experts. She did a superb job! We had very high expectations and our trip of a lifetime has now turned into memories of a lifetime thanks to Dana. Joan Quade

Wonderful Agent!

Reviewed By Kitty - Andover, MN | Traveled to
We've been going to Dana to schedule our trips for a couple of decades now, since she was just a kid, and you will never find a better person than her to take care of everything you need to travel, she goes above and beyond for her customers. I think it was a couple of years ago when we were going to Florida, I think, and there was a problem with the Wisconsin airport in the tower, and Minneapolis was cancelling trips left and right, it was near panic there, everybody complaining, trying to get rebooked in the incredibly long lines and getting no where. All the motels around the airport were filling up fast and it was Crazy! We placed a call to Dana and within 1/2 hour we were in our hotel room right near the airport and had our tickets to fly out in the morning. And everybody else was still at the airport. We found out when we went to the Motel, we got the last room! Serously everyone, there is NO ONE better. You can find her at her own NEW company, Travel Experts in Andover right off Hwy 65 in the Aculpulco strip mall. Quite a fitting name! Here is the info: 763-413-3575 or travel.experts@outlook.com She can get it done like no other. (And she's a wonderful person and treats you like family) We love her!!!

She made planning asfun as the trip itself!

Reviewed By Jeff Carlson - Ramsey, MN | Traveled to
What can I say, when it comes to getting my family, friends and I set up on a stress-free, incredible vacation, there is nobody I'd turn to but Dana. Have worked with her on several trips over the last few years but our recent trip to Playa has to be the best yet. The Valentin was incredible from top to bottom. Thank you Dana for setting up yet another great experience.

After waiting for another travel agent to get back to me for over a week I was referred to Dana, she got back to me the same day with several options that met my criteria. Within 24 hours of contacting Dana we were booked. Great vacation!

Perfect Getaway

Reviewed By Erica - Andover, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Dana is super responsive and provides a lot of options! Our family wanted to book a last minute get away and she was able to provide me with options and book our trip within a very short timeframe. We booked at the Dreams Riviera and had an absolutely perfect vacation. The food was fantastic - from the buffet to the multiple restaurant options to the poolside grill. The staff at this resort were a pleasure to deal with and they did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable.

It Pays to Use a Professional!

Reviewed By Da Whole Family - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
We were taking our first international family holiday. Dana was a quick study for our 17 person group, assessing our needs and travel requirements. We were thrilled when she was able to decrease our air time by securing direct flights while saving us over 50% on airfare. We also decided to prolong our stay by several days and she found a wonderful resort near the airport for us to unwind and relax before returning home.

Extremely helpful and enjoyable to work with!!

Reviewed By karen - minneapolis | Traveled to
When attempting to find a Spring break location, I was all over the board on where to go and what to do. Dana was not only extremely helpful in making suggestions, but also worked very hard at giving me a lot of options to consider. After a while, I felt bad that I kept asking for more information and pricing, but she gladly obliged and was extremely gracious, responsive, helpful, and lovely to work with. She made what felt like a daunting task actually fun and exciting!! For all future trips I will call Dana!!
