Luxury Travel Specialist

I have been customizing and planning personalized luxury vacations since 1999. I pride myself on my attention to detail and impeccable personal service. They have become my hallmarks in travel planning. My drive and dedication to each and every client is of the utmost importance to me.

I grew up and have resided in the Mankato area my entire life. I currently live in Lake Crystal and am raising my son, Lucas. I graduated from Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, Minnesota in 1998. I have a Diploma in Travel Planning. I am a Certified Travel Associate certified by The Travel Institute. The CTA designation, conferred by The Travel Institute, marks the pinnacle of travel industry professionalism.  CTAs are required to complete a rigorous academic program and exam, possess at least five years of full-time experience, and follow a continuing education regimen to remain current on the latest travel trends. I am also a Luxury Lifestyle Specialist. I have been certified as a specialist from Sandals Resorts, Disney Vacations, Holland America Cruises and Trafalgar Tours.

My expertise is in customized itineraries, luxury cruises and tours, adventure travel, history tours, honeymoons, romantic getaways and world cruises, as well as travel for large groups, businesses, destination weddings and family reunions.

I was an award winning Travel Agent for over 14 years at AAA Travel in Mankato, MN. At AAA Travel, I earned the Presidents Elite for top sales in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012.  In 2013, I opened my own agency called Amber Pietan Travel Agency. I quickly established myself and began personalizing travel for my beloved clients in lower North Mankato. Since opening my agency, I have received the Outside Agents Outstanding Sales Achievement Award in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017!


I am a seasoned and dedicated traveler! As a child, my family and I traveled the United States extensively. As an adult, I have traveled to Mexico, England, Spain, Greece, the Dominican Republic, Hawaii, Africa and Jamaica. I also had the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous Alaskan Cruise.


My moto is “Without a Travel Agent you are on your own”. Own your own, planning a trip today can be confusing, costly, and time consuming. However having the availability and expertise of a travel professional to assist you will guarantee you the best prices and most amazing itineraries. My years of experience enables me to share the wealth of information I have accumulated over the years with my clients and in my own personal travels. I also make myself available to my clients for unforeseen emergencies and changes. I pride myself on making each vacation I plan a memorable experience.
 

Amber is so amazing

“Amber is so amazing. She is not only by far one of the most dedicated travel professionals I have ever met, she is also an incredible human who gives to her community with a kindness that is inspiring. Amber has helped us on numerous occasions with our travel needs. Sometimes those needs are just to “dream travel” and she still provides the same exceptional service for a one night hotel room as she does for an entire luxury travel package. I truly feel that her tag line is accurate. “Without a travel agent, you are on your own”. I would rather travel safely knowing Amber is there to support us than travel “alone”. HIGHLY recommend Amber Pietan!” Dawn S.

Senior Trip

Reviewed By Lisa - Mankato | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Amber was so helpful in booking our trip to Cancun. Though I have been there a few times, she knew the hotels we were interested from the quality of drink, food, atmosphere, activity to the comfort of bedding! She gave us tips on travel including utilizing Mobile Passport which was amazing and an envy of other travels. She made sure we signed up for our Sky Miles, and when I didn't get the information to her prior to booking she followed up with me a number of times so I wouldn't forget and lose miles. She saved us money and made sure our flight times were the best fit. Highly recommended!

Phenomenal Vacation

Reviewed By C & J in MN - North Mankato, MN | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Amber goes above and beyond just booking a package. She finds the little extras to make your trip that much more amazing. She will help out with any issues that may arrive with your trip, including flights, hotels, etc. She helped us get an upgraded, ocean-view room and daily complimentary breakfast buffets with the slightest expense increase ($100) and it was so worth it. She will assist with car rental or other other ways of commuting to and from your destinations so you are not left wondering how you'll get to your next place. Our vacation was easy and relaxing and full of great sights to see. If you need an emergency type trip she will assist to get you the best price spur of the moment and make sure your hotel and commutes are covered if needed. Her experience with so many people of different income levels is definitely a plus. She can help you with small trips to extravagant vacations of a lifetime and she'll make sure you bring what you need to be prepared! Contact Amber!

Bucket List-Nashville CHECK!

Reviewed By JLinde - Mankato, MN | Traveled to Nashville ~ Tennessee ~ USA
I researched flights and hotels in the Nashville, TN area for a month and was struggling. I reached out to Amber to arrange a trip to Nashville for my husband’s 40th birthday. She gave us options in different locations in Nashville based on our interests. After we decided to stay downtown, she lined up our flights and hotel. We only told her “May” and she somehow got the date exactly on his birthday, which was amazing! I do not travel well (nerves) and to have her take care of all arrangements was unbelievably convenient. She thought of details we would not have since we do not travel often. I would recommend her, highly when looking at a trip near or far – she is AWESOME!
