Custom World Travel Expert

Bordeaux Chateau, France
Bordeaux Chateau, France

I have been in the travel industry for 21 years. I pride myself on above and beyond customer service. Your trip is special to me and I will make sure your vacation is stress-free from start to finish. I work with you to create custom and specialized travel experiences. I have travelled to Europe, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico and have cruised on several cruise lines including a river cruise on Viking. I have been selling all these destinations for 20 plus years and have a vast base of knowledge.   I travel every year to visit my family in India. I enjoy traveling with my husband and children to educational destinations and have recently returned from an amazing trip to Costa Rica. If you are searching for an agent who will take excellent care of you and make sure your vacation is perfect for you, contact me today!

River Cruise Specialist

After experiencing my first river cruise in Bordeaux France on Viking I was sold.  I loved the area and the ability to truly experience so much of the country, it's traditions, culture and history.

I believe in River Cruising as an ideal way to travel and am excited to help my clients create their own memories, whether it be on a river in Europe, Vietnam or China.

Europe vacation 2017

Reviewed By Jeannette - West Richland, WA | Traveled to Europe
I have booked several trips with Sonia. She is dedicated and does her best to find the best deals for her clients. She truly spends quality and valuable one to one time with her clients. She worked with us to give us exactly what we are looking for and provided recommendations to help us meet our budget and time. Working with us in this manner has saved us time, money and worries and we were able to enjoy our vacation to the fullest. This Summer of 2017, we traveled to Amsterdam, London, Paris, Rome, and Berlin and had a blast. I'm sure this could not have been possible without Sonia's dedication. As long as I live in the area, I will always use Sonia to help with all our vacation planning.
