Are you searching for an agent who can elevate your next getaway by showing you what a destination has to offer beyond its usual tourist stops? And would you like advice and tips on how to navigate various cultures and exotic destinations? Then let me book your next great getaway!

For 20 years, I lived and worked all over the world with the United Nations. And during that time, I came to know a large number of countries very intimately. Once I retired from the United Nations, I could not think of a better way to share my knowledge and experience than to become a travel consultant.

When you book with me, I can guide you to experiences that only a local will know about and educate you on local customs. The following are the countries I was fortunate enough to have been based in while working for the United Nations:

  • Italy
  • Switzerland
  • India
  • Namibia
  • Ghana
  • Ethiopia
  • South Africa

In addition, I always traveled extensively from all of those bases. From India, for example, I traveled to Pakistan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. And during my time in Africa, I went on numerous safaris and traveled throughout Southern and Eastern Africa as well as West Africa, Egypt and Morocco. I was also fortunate enough to have roamed throughout much of Europe, and I have also spent time in Israel, Jordan, Thailand, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico. 

I have also earned a large number of certifications, including:

  • Globus
  • Cosmos
  • Monograms
  • Trafalgar
  • Insight Vacations
  • CIE Tours
  • Avalon Cruises
  • AmaWaterways
  • India Specialist
  • Russia Specialist

I also strive to offer my clients the best customer service possible. I am very meticulous and will check your itinerary carefully to ensure that your journey will be seamless. I am also at your service, 24/7. If you have questions, I will always do my best to be responsive and dependable.

In addition to booking itineraries for individual travelers, I am also experienced in organizing large group travel. For example, I organized a Baltic group tour that traveled from Copenhagen to Moscow, and I have also arranged church group trips to Israel and Jordan. 

So are you ready to book your next amazing adventure? Then please contact me, so we can turn that trip you've always dreamed about into reality.

Superbly organized South American voyage- the best

Reviewed By CYS - Michigan | Traveled to South America
South American Tour of Argentina, Uruguay and Chile in January 2017

Our group of 20 persons included family and friends. Timpo Travel Agency planned the trip; booking the cruise and all the land tours that were taken in ports of call. The agency negotiated the best prices for the selected tours. Whenever possible, private tours were used for our group which allowed customization.
Of note, Dr. Emelia Timpo is a professional who has traveled extensively. She applies this experience in the leadership provided by the Timpo Agency: suggesting a variety options for cruises and tours; keeping the group informed of deadlines and managing the trip details. The agency was very responsive to the needs of the group.
The trip was fabulous.
We look forward to using the Timpo Agency for other trips.

Awesome group trip with Timpo Travel

Reviewed By Marilyn's Family and Friend's Tour - Florida | Traveled to South America
In past years, for our annual family trip we plan our itineraries and tours, but for this trip we decided to use an agent to assist us with coordinating the tours. We had extensive tours over a 23 day South American vacation, 95% of which were private. The tour guides which were chosen by our agent were all so knowledgeable and hospitable and really added to the wonderful experience of our vacation. In all I had a 5 star experience which I attributed to the excellent research and planning by Timpo Travel.
Emelia of Timpo Travel helped us in creating a majestic experience, incorporating our chosen interests and priorities hence customizing the trip to our needs. I would not hesitate in using her services for future travel and recommending her highly to all.

She gave valuable advise on accommodations as well as travel itenary

Reviewed By Ewurama - Accra | Traveled to
No doubt her travel experience influences the manner in which she assists her clients through the otherwise stressful planning of a holiday. She keeps you updated and reminds you of bookings , visa requirements you have to make ahead of the trip. She is never too busy to respond to any question no matter how insignificant. It does not matter whether she is at her base in NJ or she is travelling, she will always get back to you. We definitely will use her again on one the many trips she has so beautifully painted.
