IRELAND AND SCOTLAND TRAVEL SPECIALIST

Countless Castles In Ireland
Countless Castles In Ireland

Who hasn't dreamed of an adventure through Ireland and Scotland? When planning unique travels for clients, I am often asked about planning a trip to see both destinations. And the good news is it's absolutely possible.

Separated at their narrowest point by only 12 miles, Ireland and Scotland have links that go beyond geographic proximity.  There are few countries throughout the world that inspire so much awe and splendour than Scotland or Ireland. These two Celtic nations in the British Isles both boast incredible expanses of green scenery, beautiful nature, rugged coastlines, ancient archaeological sites, and famously friendly locals. However, they are two distinct nations with cultures and traditions all their own.,

It's often hard to choose which one to visit. From the Cliffs of Moher to the Ring of Kerry to the historical castles and architectural wonders like St. Patrick's Cathedral in Ireland to the Isle of Skye, Edinburgh Castle and being on the lookout for the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, both countries provides a rich experience for all ages.   

Are you dreaming of planning a trip to Ireland or Scotland, but feeling a little overwhelmed of where to start? Leave the planning to me. Whether it's a luxury guided tour, private excursions, a self drive or a small group experience, I'm here to help turn that vision into a reality.  All customized and planned uniquely for you.  From start to finish, I will provide you with the best things to do and see, where to stay, and everything else you need to have a phenomenal experience in this beautiful country!

Cheers to living well + traveling often.

Beautiful Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Jess Berg - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Amanda is amazing to work with. She’s quick to respond and so insightful on any place you want to travel. She doesn’t visit a place here and there; she travels the world everyday and has been for years. This shows in her ability to connect you with the right destination or get you ready to explore whatever place you’ve chosen. It was also so nice not to have to deal with bookings and changes with the airport or even the hotel. Anything we needed, we went through her which made the experience easy and stress free. We just got to enjoy the excitement of where we were going for our honeymoon and she took care of the rest!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Amanda Kelly responded:
It was so incredible to help you both plan such a wonderful honeymoon. Knowing that you are excited to go back and want to bring other friends with you is even more exciting. Glad Live Well Travel could help in making it stress free and enjoyable! Congratulations again on your beautiful honeymoon and cheers to many more wonderful years together!

Best trip to Mexico EVER!!

Reviewed By Jules - Apache Junction | Traveled to Cabo San Lucas ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
Amanda is the best. She is so well versed on travel around the world and does her research to ensure that nothing is missed. She helped me plan a 50th birthday trip to Cabo with friends which was originally scheduled for June 2020. Obviously, Covid-19 had other plans and that trip had to get cancelled. She dealt with all of the chaos of the daily changing issues due to the pandemic and made sure that we were able to recover the money we had already put into it to be used towards rebooking the trip. I have no idea how she maintained her sanity through it all but she was so patient in answering our questions and concerns. We rebooked for Sep with high hopes that it would work....and it did! Thanks to Covid, none of the friends that we were hoping would go could go but my husband and I had the time of our lives!! Best trip to Mexico EVER! She covered every detail for us.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Amanda Kelly responded:
Jules, I'm beyond happy that you were able to make your birthday celebration happen! Despite dealing with the hurdles of postponements and delays with covid, we worked through it all together to make it happen. Your pictures, stories and memories will remain with you for years to come, and I'm beyond grateful that you chose me to help throughout your journey! Cheers to more exciting adventures ahead!

This is our second time using Amanda Kelly as our travel agent, and once again she truly out did herself in planning a wonderful trip for my husband and I and a small group of friends.
We traveled to and toured the country of France for two weeks, and what a spectacular two weeks we had!
We started with a flawless one week river cruise and then toured the countryside of France for another week, seeing castles, medieval towns, vineyards and wineries, finally ending our trip with two days in Paris.
Our lunches and dinners were magnificent! All, let us experience authentic France!
All of our tours were private to our group traveling together with our own tour guides and made the trip so informative, fun and enabling all of us to see and experience so much more then we could of ever imagined!!!

Hawaii Whirlwind ... Life's too short, do it now!

Reviewed By MoMo - Owen WI | Traveled to Oahu Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Awesome Amanda!
We haven't traveled much so the comfort and security of having Live Well Travel guide us and support us was priceless. Informing us of the proper steps to navigate covid guidelines was our first hurdle and Amanda made it smooth going.
The flights and accommodations were great especially with a limited time to prepare. We only requested her help two weeks before leaving. Our resort was right on the beach yet still in our price range. We would not have been able to find something like that. The link to activities was very helpful. We used some of the suggestions and were not disappointed. And even if we didn't use some of the specific companies it still gave us ideas of what was available.
The helicopter ride was a highlight. We totally recommend it. We also snorkeled with the sharks which was awesome! We couldn't have done it without Amanda's help.
Thank you so much!

OMG! Amanda has the patience of Job! She helped us maneuver our way through planning a destination wedding in the midst of the pandemic. She also stepped right in to be our "translator/interpreter" when language translation got a little tricky. Wouldn't have wanted to tackle this without her.

I highly recommend Amanda and her expertise of the travel industry.

Travel Agent by Your Side

We have worked with Amanda to book our trip to Ireland and Scotland. In booking it, she was responsive, had unique ideas that would make our trips "ours." Then, in the COVID-19 world of canceled and delayed trips and confusion, Amanda has been amazing in her thoroughness. It gives me so much comfort, in a time where nothing is known, to have Amanda helping us through the process. I was already grateful for the her planning, ideas, and savings. This experience has solidified that I will never choose to plan another trip without her expertise. She is worth her weight in gold.

Amazing Family Trip!

Reviewed By Jake - Plymouth, Minnesota | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
I don’t know where to begin. Amanda was absolutely wonderful! From my first call with her, I knew my family vacation was in good hands. I told her what we wanted for a family vacation and she came up with the perfect trip. In a matter of days, she called me with the costs for the entire trip. She had coordinated flights for two families from different states, a travel van to accommodate all 9 of us and a beautiful villa with five bedrooms, complete with a pool and hot tub. After these essentials were booked, Amanda suggested activities/excursions we might enjoy. She maintained contact throughout the process and kept us on track. She logistically booked activities based on where we were and how far we’d need to drive on any given day. I will absolutely use Amanda again and will recommend her to others! She remained cheerful, upbeat, understanding and attentive throughout the entire process. A++, Amanda!

Easy to work with for amazing trips

Reviewed By Brian and Diana - Jersey City | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Amanda was so easy to work with as we planned our honeymoon during ever-changing COVID restrictions kicked in. And then… she was even more impressive when we had to delay it over a year. I tend to obsess over vacations I plan, making sure every detail is accounted for and that we don’t miss a thing and everything we do is the best option in the area. Amanda got to know us, our tendency to over-plan, and made us feel confident she was planning the best trip possible. And while on the trip (across three Hawaiian islands) her recommendations and plans hit the mark every time. In the age of the Internet I used to wonder why anyone would use a travel agent… and Amanda is why. From the towns, to the hotels, to the restaurants, to the tours, even the weather - she knows all the best spots and makes sure they’re the best for you, not just highly rated on all the review sites. Amanda makes booking a vacation just as enjoyable as being on vacation.

Service Far Exceeded Expectations

Reviewed By KG - Bismarck, ND | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Amanda Kelly is excellent! She partners with you to understand your desires, interests, and budget to propose ideas as to what you may like and listens to feedback to further tailor suggestions to find that perfect trip for you. No two travelers are the same as to what they find imperative for a successful and fun trip. So much comfort is provided knowing she has visited multiple properties, allowing her to knowledgeably answer multiple questions regarding each property. I had multiple questions, and never once did she seem frustrated but instead, always answered promptly and ensured she addressed my concerns. She relieved much anxiety of traveling with COVID protocols by laying out exactly what needed to be done prior to the trip, what to expect at arrival, and the requirements for departure. I would have not felt comfortable traveling international right now without her assistance. I will continue to capitalize on Amanda’s vast travel experience as I plan future adventures!
Amanda Kelly responded:
This was a long awaited fun and sun getaway for you. Throw in a pandemic and the extra hurdles it took to get to your destination, I'm so happy to hear you all had such a wonderful time. Thank you for your kind words as it means so much! It's always important to me that you have the information and resources to feel comfortable and confident traveling stress free on vacation. Thank YOU for partnering with Live Well Travel for this memorable trip. Can't wait to start planning the next one!

Pure Relaxation!

Reviewed By Macarena - Edina, Minnesota | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
As health care workers, my husband and I had a very difficult year in 2020 and we were dreaming about a trip where we could relax and recharge. The trip Amanda planned delivered! We spent a week at the most perfect location and resort and we are so thankful for that time. Of note, prior to the trip we had several concerns regarding COVID and weather, and Amanda was so patient with us and answered our questions, calmed our anxiety, and was so responsive. We couldn't recommend her more!

Bucket List Trip To Peru-EPIC Trip To Remember!

Reviewed By Carol - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Peru ~ South America
Amanda was nothing short of amazing helping us to plan for a bucket list trip to Peru. She asked such great questions to get my husband and I to the heart of the trip we wanted to create. When paired with the airfare it was much less than we were quoted by another agency. Since Amanda has been to Peru, her personal experience and random trip tips (that we didn't even think to ask) were more than helpful.

Amanda stayed in touch with us from start to finish. She thought of everything, including a surprise gift for us upon our arrival in Cusco-after a long day of flying. Our trip was customized to everything we had envisioned. She planned excursions for us based on our interests and we loved all of them. From our mountain climbing zip line adventure to our trek up Huayna Picchu-it was priceless.

Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! I highly recommend reaching out to Amanda. We are currently working with Amanda on our upcoming trip to Ireland!

I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Amanda Kelly responded:
You guys were so fun to work with! And to see your bucket list adventures come to life was nothing short of amazing. I loved hearing about your hike in Macchu Picchu and all the great foods you enjoyed along the way too. Can't wait for your European adventure next!
