Ireland, Britain & Western Europe Specialist

My first trip to Ireland in 1997 and then Scotland soon after changed the direction of my travel career and interests forever! I was young, fairly new to the industry and had never traveled internationally; it really was love at first site with the natural beauty, the history and the people. I knew instantly that I would focus my career on travel to this area of the world, and I have not regretted it for one moment since!


I am a Certified Travel Associate and Western Europe Destination Specialist. I am also an Ireland Specialist through the Irish Tourist Board, a SCOTSMaster Agent through Visit Scotland, and a BritAgent through Visit Britain.  While international travel is where I focused my specialization I do book travel worldwide. It keeps each day and call new and exciting.


I love to help busy travelers navigate the many complex details and intricate planning required by an international vacation.  One of the reasons I was drawn to Britain and Ireland is the lack of a language barrier and the fact that while the culture and customs are somewhat similar to the U.S., everything is still a bit different with a foreign feel.  This makes it a great entry to international travel for many of my clients.

I have made many visits to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England over the years. I personally escort annual small group tours to Scotland with itineraries varying from a focus on the hugely popular Outlander books and television series to off the beaten path, adventurous tours of the Scottish Islands.

Travel can be life changing, as it was in my case.
• A child can discover a new found love of history after a trip to the Tower of London.
• A long-married couple may return home with a new burst of romance after an anniversary trip.
• A journey to an ancestral homeland can spark a new genealogy hobby or as in my case a deep sense of belonging and connection!


These are the stories that keep me motivated, loving my job, and ready to help the next person with their dream journey!
 

ScotsMaster Scotland Specialist

I personally escort small group tours to Scotland. Many of my travelers come back year after year... 

"I have been on 2 of Tawnya's tours, Scotland With a Touch of Outlander in 2016, the Islands tour in 2017 and in 2018 will be going in on the North Coast 500 tour. These tours continue to amaze me. No words can truly explain the amazing experiences I have had and the lifelong friends I have made. Tawnya has done a brilliant job of of putting together detailed itineraries that hit all the high points but also the special ones that we may not know of! I highly recommend that if you have any interest in traveling to Scotland or anywhere in the world contact Tawnya she will help you plan an amazing vacation.  ~ J.S. Maple Grove, MN

GREAT TRIP

Reviewed By Mel - Moorhead Minnesota | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Tawyna was able to accomplish what other agencies couldn't as we were going to a village called Port Isaac in Cornwall. Other agencies could get us to Paris and London but we would have had to plan the rest ourselves. She went above and beyond and provided an itinerary literally for dummies. We had never been to Europe and needed a lot of hand holding, which she more than provided. The itinerary was spot on every step of the way. Every Hotel was within walking distance from every site we wanted to see. I would highly recommend Tawyna. She knows her stuff and goes the distance and will not disappoint!!

Great Britain!!

Reviewed By Steve - Stillwater, MN | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Tawnya is a true professional. She fully researched locations for a driving trip across Scotland, England and Wales. Finding hidden gems for us to visit and stay.

I have been on two separate tours that she has led and both have been first class experiences. Fun and educational.

Terrific Travels with Tawnya

Reviewed By Jinx - Golden Valley, MN | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Recently, my husband and I took the Outlander trip to Scotland (with a bit of Harry Potter and Downtown Abbey thrown in) with Tawnya. From the planning stage through the trip to the end, it was a wonderful trip. Tawnya is well-organized and gives great "bang for the buck." It was a substantive trip; Tawnya doesn't just drop you off and leave you with a bit of tour and lots of shopping. The trip was well planned with full days of sight-seeing at well chosen sites. Tawnya is a hands-on guide. She stays with her group and sees that everyone gets the most of the visit. The Scottish guide Hugh, was also outstanding. Not only did he know his "stuff," but he made it extremely interesting and had a delightful personality. The accommodations were comfortable although we didn't always have elevators. There was always help with luggage, though, if you needed it. In fact, Tawnya was always there to help if needed. What also made it a fun trip was the other people.

Outstanding trip!

Reviewed By D & K - Carver, MN | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Very knowledgeable about Scotland. We started off with some basic ideas of what we wanted to see and do and Tawyna really helped to narrow down the ideas into a very pleasant trip, It was nice to have her suggest different lodging option for us to choose from. She was also able to tell us if we were going to have to much driving for a day without being able to enjoy our surroundings. Helped us to develop a very workable and enjoyable trip!

Outstanding!!!!

Reviewed By Mary-Outlalnder - MN | Traveled to
The Best Ever!!! Tawnya is AMAZING. I went on her Scotland tour in June 2016 and it soooo exceeded my expectations. She had incorporated several wonderful surprises into the itinerary - which I will call The icing on the cake! She has spoiled me for any other tour operator. She kept us up to date with e-mails before the trip, gave us daily maps to track our sights and was always friendly and helpful. Her passion is wonderful as well as contagious. She is so organized and just seems to know what the group would enjoy - and then adds it into the schedule whenever possible.
