Exotic, Unique and Custom Travel Planning

After more than 37 years in the travel industry, I am proud to say that I have been to 92 different countries across the globe. I've enjoyed 34 different sailing trips, and I love to cruise on the open seas.

Yet, despite all this travel, I still thirst for more adventure. I love to discover new destinations, research the latest resort properties and help my clients plan incredible trips that are filled with unforgettable memories.

My personal traveling experiences to exotic and exciting destinations such as Cuba, Myanmar, India, France and Italy allow me to match my clients to the destination that is perfect for them.

One of the most amazing trips that I was able to plan was for a family of four generations who wanted to experience a safari in Kenya. The itinerary that I created accommodated all 36 people in the family, who ranged in age from 8 to 72. The family was awe-struck by their vacation and I am now working on their next travel adventure to a ranch in Montana.

In addition to relying on my personal adventures, I also pride myself on my professional credentials and accolades:

  • Certified Travel Consultant
  • Member of the Abercrombie & Kent 100 Club, a prestigious award given only to the top travel agents.
  • Tahiti Tourism Board Certified Specialist
  • Tourist Board Certified Spain Specialist
  • Institute of Certified Travel Agents Destination Specialist for Europe, the Pacific Rim, Hawaii, the Caribbean and Africa

We have had the pleasure of working with Ann Gray for many years and have never been disappointed in her suggestions or service. I recommend her as an agent and find she is receptive to things we ha e discovered that might be of future use to her currently working with Ms. Gray on a family cruise in 2016

She always comes through for us.

Ann has been our travel agent for more years than I can remember. My husband and I and many family members have relied on her for many trips since 1979, no slip ups! Our last trip was March 2015, and we have Christmas 2015 scheduled and a European River Cruise for fall 2016. We love to travel and love leaving the details to Ann.

Several foreign and domestic trips

Reviewed By John - Edina, MN | Traveled to
Ann has planned several trips for us over many years. The most memorable one was a 23-day trip around the world with my daughter. We had stops in 13 major cities, with local tour guides scheduled to meet us at each airport, take us to our hotel, and provide a city tour the following day. All guides met us as schedulted, and we stayed is wonderful hotels. All planes were on time with no lost baggage, and all worked out ver well. Ann really knew how to put a complicated trip toegher, make is all work well, complete it all at a reasonable cost, and provide a memory of a lifetime.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
