Tina Valdez

Buda, Texas Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Family, Romance & GroupTravel Specialist

My taste of travel started when I was given the opportunity to work with corporate travel.  I enjoyed the folks I got to meet in order to help our employees travel to our US offices. When the company doors closed I wanted to do more in the travel business. I continued researching and after planning one of our family trips I set my mind on pursuing leisure travel.

Now as a travel specialist I love to travel in order to see history, try different foods, learn about different cultures and try activities that are in the area. I enjoy sharing my experiences with others in order to help them experience great locations for themselves. 

I have traveled extensively to Mexico and Jamaica. I have also had the pleasure of enjoying the Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos and Paris.  I led a Girl Scout Troop to Costa Rica on an educational adventure. I helped lead a school group to Venice, Florence, Rome, Assisi, Pompeii, and Capri.  I have also traveled in the U.S. to the East Coast to take in the history that New York City, Washington D.C., Boston, and Philadelphia had to offer.  I have cruised to Alaska, Bahamas, Hawaii, Cuba, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Antigua, and Barbados.


I spend time educating myself so I can be the best advisor to my clients. 

 
I can assist with all facets of your trip, in turn, providing you with the greatest travel experience imaginable.


I specialize in destination weddings, romantic getaways, family vacations and group travel.

 Let me help you plan you next great adventure!

Why I Travel

Piton in St. Lucia
Piton in St. Lucia

I LOVE adventure! To me being able to try new things when I get to that special destination that offers new challenges that will stretch me outside my comfort zone and get my heart racing is what I like. Getting that adrenaline rush while zipling, ATV driving, snorkeling over a gorgeous natural reef, trying new foods, and experiencing new things in each place is what traveling is about. Being able to share the experiences with you makes my job exciting and worthwhile.  I want you to be able to have a wonderful experience with your travels. I am here to help you through the whole process.

Fantastic family trip!

Our Hawaii trip was fantastic! We were really looking forward to going to Hawaii but we're overwhelmed by the potential options and information we found. Tina helped make sense of it all and planned a trip for us that included everything we were looking for. Our vacation exceeded our expectations, and every tour and program Tina chose for us was really superb.

The ONLY way to travel!

Reviewed By TexasRed - Houston, TX | Traveled to
We fondly refer to Tina Valdez as "Travel Tina" and cannot say enough good things about her. She has booked cruises for us in the past, and now our dream honeymoon to Hawaii. I can't imagine a better a travel agent. Her services really take the stress and guesswork out of traveling to places you have never been. She's responsive, patient, and full of experienced information and suggestions that make all the difference. I highly suggest you not only use Tina, but follow her advice and suggestions because she knows how to get the most out of traveling:)

Family vacation

Reviewed By DP - Buda, TX | Traveled to
THE BEST TIME!!!!! Thank you for the email! We had a wonderful trip…everything from our flights to the accommodations and the many drinks in between(!) was perfect-o!!!! We all considered our stay a 5 Star! We would highly recommend the resort, especially the adult side! The family side was crazy active with loads of families (as you can imagine). La Perla was wonderful; the rooms were amazing! The girls had an upgrade due to Jr. Suites being full. They enjoyed a 2 room suite on the top floor, smack dab in the middle so their view was THE BEST (overlooked the pool & ocean) and they enjoyed their hot tub each night under the stars!!!! We had a wonderful room on the top floor ( a little ways from the girls, but not bad) which looked to the side but had a descent view of the ocean. The food was phenomenal, however the only night we didn’t care for our meal was the Mexican food restaurant. It was on the Family side and the staff wasn’t quite as “polished” and the food was nothing to write home about. That was our only negative! The beach was OK, loads of seaweed, but we still had a great time. We did paddle boarding and kayaks that were free from the resort! Once we got past the brown seaweed, the water was crystal clear. This property is the closest property to Downtown Playa (another plus!). Very convenient and only about a 5 minute cab ride! We went and strolled 5th Ave. one afternoon. We went on a Mayan Jungle tour which was a blast! We propelled down into a cave, snorkeled in the cave, zip lined and hiked up to an amazing traditional Mayan Family-Style meal…OH MY GOSH….it was heaven in our mouth! You were so helpful and we appreciate all your hard work making this trip happen! We already have a few places in mind. Thanks again for everything! We would HIGHLY recommend this resort as well as using you to help us with our travel needs! We “toasted” you MANY TIMES!!!! HaHa
