I look forward to giving scope and shape to your imagined travels. I'll ensure that your investment in the experience meets your personal, financial, and sustainability expectations.

After spending 25 years in travel advertising at a magazine, I longed to put my skills as a business traveler to work for those looking for a hands-on professional planner. My sales calls didn’t all take place in cushy resorts... more like traversing the terrain of small islands, stretches of mountainous wilderness, and basically driving with a map in my hand at all times.

So, I know a little something about the logistics of getting from point A to point B—not only how much clothes and sales materials to pack, but also the limit that I can safely maneuver alone. In fact, I’m darn good with logistics and know this plays well into solid travel counseling and planning.

I work diligently to offer current and reliable travel options in:

  • North & South America
  • Europe
  • Australia & New Zealand
  • Southeast Asia, China & Japan
  • Pacific islands

Whether an itinerary is packaged or customized, there are a wide variety of approaches to exploring any land and its culture.

While there are still tour buses moving large groups to sight-seeing destinations, many travel companies now deliver more intimate engagement that by their nature require moving smaller groups of people. I'll help arrange your trip to reflect the approach you like best.

Four Happy Travelers

Reviewed By Happy Traveller - Henderson, NV | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Carol worked hard to make sure that our trip was exactly what we wanted. It wasn't easy working with two couples on opposite ends of the continent, sometimes with different ideas, at the same time. But she did it! The four of us had a great time!

Hawaii Vacation

Reviewed By Sue - Henderson, NV | Traveled to
Carol is a fantastic travel specialist! She listens to what you are looking for in your trip and plans around that. Carol put together a day by day itinerary for my husband and I that exceeded our expectations. It was full of activities and yet allowed plenty of time to relax. We are looking forward to our next planned trip with Carol's expertise.

Absolutely, the best cruise of our lives!!!

Reviewed By Victoria & James - Santa Monica | Traveled to Cabarete ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
No one has ever offered better travel services than Carol Wilhems! Each and every detail of our itinerary was taken care of so that during our trip we could concentrate on having a great time. She even made us aware of making sure to take a flight out the day before the ship left port. Since we wanted to visit the S/E Caribbean, she did the research and recommended Celebrity Crusises. We're avid travelers and were incredibly impressed with the quality of the whole cruise experience with Celebrity. The cuisine was delicious from first glance (always beautifully plated) to the last nibble of the second desserts. We felt like royalty with 4 to 5 waiters attending our every need.

Not seasoned cruisers

Reviewed By jobo - Henderson, NV | Traveled to
We hadn't cruised in over 20 years so we solicited Carol's help to provide us guidance on making the right decisions. We were concerned about sea sickness but didn't want to purchase the most expensive room and Carol helped us choose the room that was positioned on the ship that very little movement was felt. Carol prepared and printed all of the paperwork detailing what to do with each item. Having the peace of mind knowing that she was just a phone call away if any issues came up put us at ease. She was very helpful with details that we would not have thought of. We would recommend Carol if you are looking for a travel specialist.

Carol is a great agent to work with, knowledgeable and helpful

Reviewed By Red - Henderson | Traveled to
Carol was very helpful planning our independent travel to London UK, and to Paris France, prior to our first ever Riverboat Cruise on the Seine/France. She kept our budget in mind. Carol booked the international airfare for us and arranged transportation to and from the airport for us. She also booked our Eurail tickets from London to Paris. Carol also helped us resolve a vendor issue.

Upscale Luxury-Above & Beyond Service

Reviewed By Jody - Chicago | Traveled to
Carol went above and beyond with her service to help plan our first trip, in years , to Hawaii. I presented complex issues for Carol to manage. She needed to coordinate the trip to follow business on one island, I needed to know the cancellation policy, I needed a package which included breakfast and I needed to coordinate around a portion of the trip that would be paid for with award points. I needed allot!!! With all the constaints and in learning there was a portion she would not be able to book Carol remained focused on my needs and helping me in any way possible. Part of our stay was on the Kaanapali side and we loved her resort luxury recommendations. The other half of the stay was on the Wailea side and we booked the Fairmont Kealani. It met every expectation and beyond! Carol personally contacted the property to confirm the reservation and help secure a room upgrade. The package Carol booked was not available anywhere online. The idea to stay in two different properties rather then switching islands during our 10 day vacation was perfect for us. We didn't want to eat up a day switching islands and we were able to experience everything Maui has to offer. To complete our experience Carol took the time to provide suggestions regarding easy to access activities from each side of Maui. The best Luxury Vacation thanks to Carol's expertise!

Fun day trip from Vegas

Reviewed By Sally - Fort Wayne, IN | Traveled to Grand Canyon ~ Arizona ~ USA
Needed something special to do while we were in Las Vegas to celebrate a milestone birthday. Called Carol and we talked about flying into the Grand Canyon for the day. Carol quickly had several suggestions and emailed us the information. We were able to pick out the tour that suited us best with the amount of time and money we wanted to spend . We had great bus service from our hotel to the air center and a fantastic flight to the south rim where we spent the day exploring with the help of shuttle drivers and knowledgeable park staff. As always we are never disappointed in the direction Carol points us!

Italy and Croatia/Cruise

Reviewed By Kathy - Columbus, Ohio | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Carol did a great job planning a wonderful visit to Italy and Windstar cruise.
She was very thorough, from the flights and driver to and from the airport, to the great tour guides in the various cities. The cruise was a great experience and I hope to sail with Windstar again.
I am looking forward to having Carol plan my next trip!

Thanks Kathy -- it was marvelous traveling with you on this 17-day exploration of both countries (with a day in Montenegro thrown-in!) I appreciate all your and fellow travelers' support throughout the planning process as well as during travel. Thanks for allowing me to share the memories!
