Making Memories in the Caribbean
Making Memories in the Caribbean

Travel cures everything!  We all need a bucket list of dreams with a goal of making memories with those we love.  Travel is my passion and I love helping others check off items on their bucket list! 

Have you been dreaming about a world cruise, Viking river cruise, a trip across the ocean to Europe, a safari in Africa, visiting the beautiful parks in North America or a weekend getaway in the Caribbean?  I have personally traveled throughout Europe, Alaska, Hawaii, the continental US as well as the Caribbean and Mexico. I just returned from Iceland and what a magical place it was!

While on a mission trip in Kenya, I witnessed God's creation across the world as I observed painted skies of oranges and purples, and exotic animals in their natural habitat. 

It has been my pleasure to help clients check off bucket list trips to Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, Croatia, the UK, Paris, Austria, Stockholm, Norway, Maine, Mexico, the Caribbean and the list goes on. Not only do I work with my clients to design their perfect vacation, but I also put together trips for groups. I recently returned from a European River cruise with 18 people in my group. We managed to navigate all of the Covid protocol requirements to the various countries and everyone came back well!

If you can dream it, I can get you there!   You can count on me to work on your behalf to get the best price available and follow through on every detail of the your trip until you return home. Please give me a call to let me  know what's next on your bucket list. 

As Dr. Seuss says..."Oh the Places You Will Go!  There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.  And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all!"

Kathy made our Crusies Easy

Reviewed By KarlB - Durham, NC | Traveled to Europe
I had the pleasure of working with Kathy on two cruises; one of which was recently concluded. Her professionalism and efforts were well beyond expectations. Not only was Kathy able to obtain highly favorable cruise rates, but ensured that we were up to date with cruise status and all of the ever changing Covid related requirements and forms not only from Viking, but from the various countries and airlines. More impressive, was her effort to ensure we were able to obtain, when necessary, quick contact with Viking travel for air reservations which often had 90 minute wait times. This was all avoided due to Kathy's efforts. As our next cruise comes closer, there is little doubt that Kathy will be putting in the same effort and safeguards so that our travel arrangement are seamless and without stress. I have traveled all over the world for years, and have dealt with many travel companies and agents...none surpass the professionalism and dedication that Kathy displays.

An Absolutely Awesome Agent

Reviewed By Laura - Bluffton, SC | Traveled to World Cruise ~ Other
Kathy Stokes worked with me for over a year to book a Viking World Cruise, including booking all the Viking excursions in advance and an add-on Cunard cruise at the end. Kathy's help was invaluable, and her customer service skills are exceptional. Kathy always goes the extra mile. At one point in my booking, when there was no availability, Kathy worked hard and successfully secured a spot for me. Kathy always responds promptly. She is thorough, digs for answers, and is detail-oriented, which are valuable traits in a travel agent. Best of all, she is kind and encouraging. Kathy is a great travel agent. I highly recommend Kathy. You will love working with her.
