Transcendent Trip is a unique travel service informed by a lifetime of experience studying cities and traveling to unique destinations across the United States (including Hawaii) and Europe. I have access to a tremendous supplier list that allows me to offer the best incentives and promotions in the travel industry.

From City planner to travel pro. My professional background in city planning offers a unique perspective in the travel industry. Having visited dozens of cities across the country though the lens and habits of a city planner, I have traversed new places as a pedestrian, as a cyclist, and using public transportation. These experiences allow me to absorb aspects of the City that go unnoticed when zipping by in a car. This translates into unique recommendations for activities, “slow” travel, and itineraries that allow you enough time to appreciate your destination and absorb the culture, even if it’s life on the local beach!

Listening is key to planning a successful journey for my clients. In the past year, I worked with my own family to design an exciting and ambitious three-week journey to Europe. I fell in love with the experience from start to finish.  Listening to my family’s desires and concerns allowed me to create an experience that blended active travel with downtime to make everyone happy. During a one-on-one meeting, I will listen to you to ensure I can provide itineraries that suit the needs of your whole family.

Specialties. I specialize in planning both single- and multi-destination journeys and enjoy providing my clients with a clear list of choices based on their desires, travel habits and preferences. As a mother of two teenagers, I’ve experienced travel with kids of all ages. Additionally, I also work with large school groups to plan for group travel to U.S. and overseas destinations.

My favorite journeys. My most memorable moments are always with my family hanging out in the vacation villa, or on foot and bicycle around new cities and towns. I like the idea of "slow" travel when I have enough time to absorb the community beyond typical tourist destinations and take in the feel of a local neighborhood and nearby restaurants. My family has visited the Hawaiian Islands on several occasions where some of our favorite activities involve hanging with the locals at beach parks to watch the sunset.

During our recent summer trip to Europe, we visited seven countries, including the exciting country of Iceland, in 21 days. We spent the last week in Tuscany as part of a family reunion. We were exposed to multiple languages, customs, and people from all over the world, making it one of our most memorable and exciting journeys.

Let me help you create your next memorable vacation!

My Reviews

Honeymooners in Maui and Kauai

Reviewed By dteb - Denver, CO | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
It started off with a simple Google search to find a travel agent in Denver. I generally plan everything myself and had started doing it via Costco travel. But wanted to see what a travel agent could do for me. Reached out to Deirdre to see what should could hook me up with. Informed her of everything we were looking to do and she nailed it. Had tons of recommendations of what to do, but also had in mind that we were on honeymoon and didn't want to constantly be on the go. She was also super responsive to emails when I had questions and was great to work with. Was a bit rainy in Maui when we were there so a couple of our excursions got cancelled. She helped to get the refunds processed ASAP.

Great experience working with Deirdre. Highly recommend.

Canada from one sea to the other

Reviewed By Tra - Denver, CO | Traveled to Canada
It was such a relief not to have to worry about planning a great trip to Canada. She took care of everything from the plane and train tickets to the hotels to the day trips.

The only thing I would have loved for her to do was come with us and tell us when and where to eat so my family wouldn't nag me about it!

Bucket List Trip

Reviewed By Jan T - Denver, CO | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Deirdre made arrangements for my me, my husband, and two sisters-in-law to go on an amazing Princess line cruise to Alaska. She booked mini-suites for us which provided more room than a regular cabin and we were on the port side with balconies. We went on an inside passage cruise to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria in British Columbia. The service and meals onboard were terrific

She also arranged round trip air travel from Denver to Alaska at very convenient times.She kept us apprised of changes in our itinerary and instructed us on use of the online Princess portal to personalize our cruise and make shore excursion reservations. I also appreciated the onboard credits of $175 and the complementary specialty restaurant dinner offered by her travel agency.

I would definitely recommend Deirdre's services to friends.

I trusted her to relieve me of the stress and plan a great vacation. Which she exceeded in!

Reviewed By Natasha - Denver, CO | Traveled to
I thought Deirdre had our best interest in mind the entire time helping us plan this vacation. She really understood that we were there to have a great time with each other and spoil ourselves. It was the first of many girls trips we will be taking and we set the bar high. The hotel was so amazing and the staff made us feel like it was our day every day. We could not have had such a great time without great help. We did so many adventures, I had so many lives and will bring back so many memories. Everything was so amazing. I will forever be grateful for this vacation.

Spring Break Mexican Getaway!

Reviewed By JulieC - Boulder CO | Traveled to
I contacted Deirde to help plan a Mexican trip that would be fun for my husband and me, and also a great time for our two young boys. She helped us find a GREAT spot in Playa del Carmen and even secured an upgraded ocean-front room. With her help we got non-stop flights on the days we wanted and we are completely thrilled that we used her services! The trip is coming up this March and we're really excited. She was prompt, responsive, and fun to work with. I will definitely call her again when we plan our next trip.

Deirdre's services are just what this single working mom needed!

Reviewed By Amy - Telluride, CO | Traveled to
I don't have the luxury I once had, of coming through websites, looking for travel options and crafting a personal itinerary. Deirdre stepped in and made everything come together, for what was perhaps the most special trip I've ever taken.

Deirdre Rocks!

Reviewed By Lynn - Denver, CO | Traveled to
I cannot say enough about how terrific it was to work with Dierdre in planning a trip to Scandinavia for my two sons. She created an excellent itinerary based on the general ideas we gave her and took care of all of the necessary details, many of which we would not have even thought of. Every flight, hotel, tour, etc. were well planned and went off without a hitch, making the trip especially smooth and wonderful. The boys each mentioned how much they appreciated having vouchers in their travel packet because it made checking in to hotels and tours and getting a rental car very simple, especially when there was a language barrier. On top of helping us with this trip, she is pleasant and fun to work with. I will definitely work with Dierdre on all of our future travel plans.

A Godsend

Reviewed By Rosemerry - Placerville, Colorado | Traveled to
Professional. Friendly. Responsive. Generous. Deirdre Oss is a godsend to people like me. I am not great at planning vacations and negotiating flights. I simply told her our budget, our dates, our preferences for lodging and our travel style, and Deirdre took it from there. Our trip was wonderful, and I really appreciated knowing that if anything went wrong (which it didn't), we had her on our side. I will never plan a trip without her again. She made the whole process so easy.

Trip to St. Maarten

Reviewed By JET - Denver, CO | Traveled to
I was very pleased with the attentive service provided by Transcendent Trip and Deirdre Oss who arranged our travel to St. Maarten in the Caribbean. There are no direct flights from Denver and she spent time figuring out the best options for our trip. About two weeks after booking the flights, the airline changed their schedule. Once again, she was on the case and rearranged our flights very quickly. She is but a phone call away and responds quickly. She shares her knowledge about the places you're visiting and I find her to be very engaging and knowledgeable. It is a hassle figuring out flight schedules and places to stay, and Deirdre takes the pressure off you and lets you just enjoy your fun in the sun. She gets my five star seal of approval..

SO nice to have the stress of planning a weeks vacation with kids alleviated. Anxious to hit the streets of New York running with all kinds of fun things to do and see. Thank you Deirdre for your quick response and fun ideas! Would not have been near as fun a trip without your great insight and money saving recommendations! We are already looking into another fun trip down the road so we'll be back!
