Tracy Schatz

Shartlesville, Pennsylvania Travel Agent

Elite Travel Journeys, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Bucket List Travel Expert

Planning for travel can often feel daunting, but that’s why I’m here: to make organizing your trip simple, quick, and fully catered to your needs.

As a child, I often received postcards from relatives traveling abroad. These postcards provided glimpses into an unknown world, and I constantly dreamt of going there myself.

Since my family was not able to travel frequently, we would spend years planning family vacations so that everything went smoothly. This planning ensured that my mom wasn’t stressed during our vacation—and it instilled in me a drive for detail-oriented planning that persists today.

Although the planning I do now takes significantly less time than my family spent on our vacations, I still use the same attention to detail so that my clients are prepared fully for their trip.

I plan everything to perfection from seating arrangements to changeovers and finding the best hotels near the locations that my clients want to see. My planning includes all-inclusive tours, cruises, niche sightseeing adventures, and anything else my clients desire.

When I worked for the US Air Force, part of my job was traveling to different countries and interacting with the locals. This gave me real-world lessons on how to adapt to new customs and people. I use this knowledge now to help my clients enjoy their time abroad. My experience allows me to give advice on adjusting to foreign and exotic cultures.

Whether I’m helping families or honeymooners, I provide individualized tips that help to enhance any vacation! I am always available for my clients, and this means working with them to plan their trip and also being available while they’re abroad.

Sometimes plans change or a bus is missed, but my expertise will solve any situation in a timely and positive manner. I want each and every one of my clients to enjoy traveling as much as I do.

I truly believe that, and if done right, traveling can greatly enhance a person’s life. With my help, you will soon be on your dream vacation!

 

What Traveling Has Taught Me

Traveling can teach all of us something about ourselves. I've learned to treasure how easy living in the US really is. My travels have given me new languages, new foods to love, and new sides of the road to drive on.

I've discovered that I don't need to be in my comfort zone; exploring outside of it helps me grow! I've learned to tell the story of where I have been and the adventures I went on, hoping to inspire those around me to see the world and all it has to offer.

Finish Line BEST TRIP OF MY LIFE !

Reviewed By Proud Dad ! - Beach Lake Pa | Traveled to Namche ~ Nepal ~ Central Asia
Let me just say that I tried local agents had no luck. Then did a google search for northeast Pa. for Travel Agents and about 50 people popped up. Tracy Schatz was the only one that had specializing in Bucket Lists. So I took a shot and called her, and I'm so glad I did !!!! My son was running a marathon from Mt. Everest Base Camp in Nepal down to a village called Namche Bazaar in Nepal. I told her I want to be there when he crosses the finish line. I had no idea how to go about this trip , I have never been over seas before. Tracy took over and I thank God she did. She set the whole thing up for me from start to finish !!!!! When she tells you don't worry about anything she means it. I can't explain how smooth the trip went from the time I landed in Kathmandu in Nepal till the time I left. There was someone there to guide me through everything. My guide was great !!! She did a great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Got to see my son cross the finish line !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs. Tracy made it easy!

Reviewed By brittaney - dallas,tx | Traveled to
Mrs. Tracy rock! Thank God for her. She made our trip less stressful, a much easier process. All you have to do is tell her your vision and destination and she will bring it to life. The day of your trip, all you have to do is get on your flight and just go. This was the second time I booked a trip through her and she haven't let me down NOT ONCE! Her customer service is beyond the roof! and she make sure that everything is perfect for you and your family upon arrival and departure. Mrs. Tracy get ready because there is more trips I would like to book lol. Thank you!

Knowledgeable, friendly, prompt, in short AMAZING!

Reviewed By JWynne - Dallas, TX | Traveled to
Tracy has helped me plan at least 6 trips and she has been amazing each time. She has helped us plan three Disney trips, two with children and one without, and she has been thoroughly knowledgeable with the types of accommodations, food choices, where to go when to get the most for our dollar and enjoyment. I love that she will also keep an eye on specials to ensure we get the best deal. Tracy is always available to answer any questions we have. I have referred several friends and family to her and they all have had a great experience with her.

Responsive and Efficient!! AWESOME

Reviewed By NG - Central PA | Traveled to
I contacted 1 travel agent in September(liberty travel), she presented me with 2 resort options--neither of which I liked or met the criteria set forth. When pressed to find other options, she told she was pregnant and would pass my info on to her co worker. Then I called AAA, gave the girl my travel dates and criteria. She literally did not contact me for 3 weeks. When I called her back she told me she forgot. Then I called Tracy and boy what a difference!!! Tracy immediately had a can-do attitude and started sending me information. I loved that we could text back and forth. She was an excellent communicator and I never wondered what was going on. She LISTENED to what I wanted and delivered!! Her advice for travel and tipping etc was indispensable. The resort she booked us at was amazing and we all had a phenomenal time!! Everything went exactly according to plan. I would use Tracy again in a heartbeat. Outstanding service!
