All-Inclusive Resort and Cruise Specialist

Have you ever wished that you had a best friend or family member who could book your trips for you? Someone who truly cared about your needs and desires and would create an itinerary that was perfect for you?

When I book trips for my clients, I work with them as if they were my best friends or family members. I truly care about each one of my clients and want to arrange the best trip possible for them.

I book all types of vacations, but specialize in river and ocean cruises and all-inclusive vacations. I especially love booking family travel, destination weddings and honeymoons.

Although planning travel for large groups can present some unique challenges, I pride myself on thinking outside of the box and coming up with ideas and solutions.

I have been in the travel industry since 1993, and I typically book hundreds of clients every year. I have probably encountered and dealt with just about every foreseeable travel-related problem.

I also travel extensively, especially to the areas where I typically book clients. I do this because I believe that it's important to be able to share first-hand experiences and tips with my clients.

One of my favorite quotes is, "We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us," and this is why I enjoy traveling with my own family. Each trip we take together is a way to create lasting memories. That is what I hope to create for my clients - memorable journeys that they can talk about together for many years to come.

Just the Best!

Reviewed By Sandy - Kansas City, Missouri | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
We have worked with Andrea for many years on many trips. Whether it’s been a family trip, a trip for my husband and myself or a trip with friends, she has always been ready to help us every bit of the way. She has taken the worry out of planning cruises, river cruises, land excursions and has made traveling so much easier. She went out of her way when a death in our family forced us to cancel a river cruise and really helped in that very stressful situation. No question or concern is too small and none is too big. She’s been fantastic and we’ll continue to work with her as long as we can travel!!!

50th anniversary trip

Reviewed By Scooter - Green Bay, WI | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
We have used Andrea as our travel consultant on several trips so I will highlight the one that took the most coordination. She and her team are first rate! We took our two daughters, younger daughter's husband, and adult granddaughter on this trip. Andrea coordinated air travel from and to multiple cities which allowed us to meet seamlessly for the land excursion and cruise. Everything went smoothly and we were all very happy with the entire experience.

We can be a trial with requests for this or that to try to please every person.

The Graduation cruise for "10" to the Caribbean.

Reviewed By Melissa Overfelt - Kansas City, Mo. | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
My family has booked numerous vacations with Comfort Tours and we always use Andrea Redding. Andrea is awesome! She makes sure every detail is covered and no request is too small for her to check out and make happen. One of the biggest and most memorable trips Andrea arranged for us, was when our middle son graduated College. There were 10 of us--and we went on a Western Caribbean Cruise that went to Haiti, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Our ultimate off-shore excursion was to Nine Mile in Jamaica! We will never forget how wonderful the trip was and how every detail was overseen by Andrea and her staff. We are currently planning a 3 week to China with Andrea!!

She and her assistant Lori respond to any and all requests and make the planning and decision process extremely easy. She has worked six cruise vacations for my wife and me as well as a driving vacation in California where she completed all the air, land transportation, cruise, and lodging coordination.

Stop looking. She IS the one! Truly the best.

Reviewed By CEOICAREUSA - United States | Traveled to
I was introduced to Andrea several years ago when looking for a travel agent to handle a large corporate awards trip. She not only directed us to a wonderful spot but also stayed in our strict budget. Many think that travel agents add to the cost of a trip. I was one of them. Not so. Andrea not only saved us money, she found better flight times and made sure our schedules made sense. (I fly over 125k miles per year, so this is not coming from a rookie). I have now utilized Andrea's services for our annual outing as well as a large multi-family trip where she had to manage many different personalities. Everyone loved her. I have referred her to several friends and everyone has had the same result and feedback. She is knowledgeable, professional, helpful and will guide you to the right vacation with her years of experience. I will continue to Andrea for all my travel plans.

Andrea gets it right the first time.

Reviewed By Jim and Barbara - Lansing, KS | Traveled to
My wife is disabled. As such our old travel agent just couldn't get it right in making our reservations; something always went wrong. In 2009, we decided to find a new travel agent so we met with Andrea and gave her a list of things we needed and wanted when we traveled. This is 2015, eleven cruises later, and she hasn't let us down yet! I don't recommend folks very often but I have recommended at least 7 couples do business with her and they are all extremely pleased with her. She listens to what you want, recommends changes if needed, and then plans and executes the best vacation you could ever dream of. Very detailed, leaving no stone unturned to support her clients. Extremely friendly; you'll love her the very first minute you meet her. She is the BEST!

We have used Andrea to book both cruises and land-based all-inclusive vacations. Her service is excellent and every trip has gone off exactly as planned. Our most recent trip was to an all-inclusive in Mexico on the "Mayan Riviera".

I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants a hassle free vacation.

Andrea is not just a travel agent, she is a friend. She and her assistant, Lori, have coordinated two cruises for us, both with Holland America.
