Multigenerational Family Travel Expert

I help overworked, overscheduled, overwhelmed parents and families unplug from their day to day stresses so that they can reconnect as a family through travel adventures that build memories that go beyond the pages of any magazine or textbook.

It's time to create your adventure instead of watching life pass you by. 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.

My name is Tracy, I'm the proud owner of Elite Travel Journeys, as a veteran, a business owner and mom of 6, I understand what it means to be stressed out and overwhelmed, but more important than everything else, I understand how fast kids grow up. It seems like one moment you are crying because they just won't sleep through the night, and in the next, they are applying for college. I want to help you push the pause button, step out of your crazy, busy life and take time to reconnect as a family. To find new interests, stories, and memories to share as you all move to a new phase of life. I work directly one to one with my clients to remove the stress and overwhelm that planning an epic adventure can create. No matter if you are looking for just a short weekend escape, or a year-long trip of a lifetime let me take something off your overflowing list of things to do. 

My mission is to help families connect through adventure and one of a kind experiences around the world. My personal journeys have taken me to more than 25 countries, many with my own children. Such destinations of a lifetime include Kenya where my children and I were lucky enough to see the Big 5 while on safari. After spending a few days on safari, we visited a school where we spent the day teaching the children about crayons, chalk and magic markers and all they can create with them. We also read books to the children before leaving them with the over 100 books we brought with us to help them build a library.  The day ended with a game of soccer and a group photo that keeps the memories alive.

Ireland and Switzerland were right up there too, but I would say after Kenya, my second favorite experiences came on a visit to Italy where we joined a local family at their farm for a Sunday homestyle dinner. We shared a meal, swapped stories and built memories to last. I'm never going to forget that trip. 

I truly believe that and if done right, traveling can greatly enhance a person’s life. Allow me to create journeys for you and your family that you will treasure for a lifetime. Journeys that create opportunities to connect with people in their home country, so you can experience it in an authentic and more meaningful way. And journeys that will take you far enough out of your comfort zone, to leave you with a new perspective on life, family and the world as a whole. When you truly experience the world, not just visit it, you will be forever changed for the better.

We all struggle with parental guilt. The reality is we live in a fast-paced world, with schedules filled to the max. We run from activity to activity, from one appointment to the next, all while trying to remember to get food into everyone. From one deadline at the office to trying to remember every birthday or celebration at home.   

We all need to hit the pause button from time to time. We need to find a way to unplug from the intense paces of our day to day lives and plug back into the family. To reconnect with those that we love the most. Cue the family adventure! 

I custom craft unique adventures for stressed-out families, couples and individuals who need to reconnect with what is most important to them.

Dream Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Walker - Nashville, TN | Traveled to Saint Lucia ~ St. Kitts and Nevis ~ Caribbean
Working with Tracy exceeded all of our expectations. She had answers to all of our questions, generated our trip options based upon the experience and atmosphere we wanted to have, and was immediately responsive when any ripple in the plan occurred. Tracy is an exceptional agent and we will use her services again for trips in the future. When our flight was delayed, Tracy sent us turn by turn instructions for navigating through the airport to make our next flight in time. When my wife needed medical care, Tracy coordinated for nurses to meet us as we exited the shuttle from the airport to the resort. She went above and beyond in all regards.

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.

Best trips!

Reviewed By TFids - Orwigsburg PA | Traveled to Ambergris Caye ~ Belize ~ Central America
Tracy has planned multiple trips for us (our family & friends) and we have never been disappointed. She really listens to what her clients are looking for and gives a variety of options. We have been to California ( San Francisco & Napa), Niagara Falls-Canada, Finger Lakes, NY, & Belize, all of which she has planned! We had a family emergency on our last trip and she came through immediately to help with changing our travel plans.

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!

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!
