Alaska, Cruises, Europe, Hawaii

Book with a real expert!

Third Generation Alaskan!   Born here, raised here and love to share my state with you.   I have lived this life, not just studied Alaska from a book.

Although I book groups, most of my bookings are tailored to individual interests.   

Want hiking, cultural, adventure, fishing, kayaking, train tours, glacier cruises, Alaska Cruises from the lower 48?  I have done it all. 

I started in the travel business in 1978 and have been exceeding expectation ever since.  

I am proud to say my clients come from “repeats and referrals", and it is my goal to make anyone who visits Alaska a lifetime trip to remember.

Live here in Alaska and want to go exploring?  There is a great big world out there, I would love to help you plan an adventure. Fully guided or by the seat of your pants or somewhere in between.  I love planning trips.

I have traveled to  Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, France, Italy and Denmark, Egypt, Israel, Mexico and cruised the Mediterranean, Panama Canal, Caribbean and Hawaii Islands.

I understand that everyone who calls on me to assist them have special needs.  It does not matter if those need are physical, age related, spiritual, dietary, budgetary, sensory etc, they are all important and factored into what I will suggest and confirm.

Nothing I do is “cookie cutter”.   If you want something done and slammed out the door tomorrow, I am not your gal.  But if you want memories that you will take home and be the envy of many, please email or call me!  I am in the office Tuesday - Friday 9am -6pm Alaska Time.

Thanks!

I look forward to working with you.

Our trip left us breathless and wanting More!

Reviewed By Willowrose - Anchorage, AK | Traveled to Kona, Hawaii ~ Hawaii ~ USA
From the early stages of planning our belated Honeymoon, Kelly Jo was a total professional. We knew of our destination and what we wanted, but how to go about it all was a struggle. Kelly Jo made many suggestions, and arranged an absolutely superb experience with memories that will last our lifetime.

She took into consideration our budget, and never strayed.

Upon our arrival there was even a welcoming that made us smile.

We can't speak highly enough about her expertise, professionalism and personal touches that made our Honeymoon timeless.

Without her guidance, I know our trip would not have been nearly as restful and comforting. It was absolutely perfect!

Her expertise shines like the sun on the ocean. Absolutely priceless!

Multiple flights - travel to Ft,. Lauderdale

Reviewed By Paula M - Anchorage, AK | Traveled to Fort Lauderdale ~ Florida ~ USA
Thanks so much for all the work you did on finding flights for us to travel to Ft. Lauderdale for our cruise in November. I was trying to look at flights myself with all the different options with my husband and I traveling together to Florida but taking separate flights back to Alaska and trying to see if we could use mileage and/or companion fares and it was giving me a headache! I thought to myself, this is what Kelly Jo does so why not have her do it! She did a great job.

Reviewed By Big L - Anchorage, AK | Traveled to Caribbean
This was my first experience with Kelly Jo and I think she is top notch! We worked on 2 cruises for my family and my wife's family. Kelly Jo was able to exceed my expectations for service and also surprised me with slight lower prices than the advertised lowest prices online. She respected all of my wishes and worked her magic to get me a better deal than I could for myself. Thank you Kelly Jo! This will be the start of a very long relationship.

Denali Drive-In

Reviewed By Tom mck - Anchorage, Alaska | Traveled to Denali National Park ~ Alaska ~ USA
Kelliy Jo was always prompt and friendly on the phone. I had won the Denali Park lottery which allows you to drive completely through the park in your own private vehicle one day of the year. Hotel space was tight but she was able to find us a great location at a great rate. The best thing was her recommendation of a great gourmet restaurant that we didn't even know about. And somehow she made the weather perfect also, ha ha.

The best travel agent to plan an Alaskan trip

Reviewed By Penny - Chicago, Illinois | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
It's hard to find a really good travel agent in Alaska. We were lucky to find Kelly Jo Rodriguez. She arranged planes, trains, cars and adventures for us in a most efficient manner. She was totally responsive and a pleasure to work with. And then, at the last minute we had to cancel due to illness in the family. She immediately jumped into action and worked with us. Fortunately she had recommended travel insurance. We highly recommend Kelly. Whether it's a cruise or a complicated land package, she can make planning your travel plans effortless. She is the person "in the know."

Wildlife galore in Alaska!

Reviewed By Greg - Buena Vista, Colorado | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
We asked Kelly Jo to set up a primarily day hiking trip to Alaska. She arranged a nice itinerary including Anchorage, Girdwood, Seward, Talkeetna, and Denali with suggested hikes in all of these areas. The suggested hikes were excellent and we enjoyed them all. She got reasonably priced airline tickets for us, purchased a daylong cruise in Seward in which we saw all kinds of wildlife including several whales, reserved a rental car and set up our lodging, which included a couple of excellent VRBOs, and did so with an eye to our somewhat limited budget by finding good values. She also recommended restaurants at our various stops which were all as advertised. The trip was a great success largely due to Kelly Jo's knowledge in arranging all aspects of our trip. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering a trip to Alaska.

My experience with Kelly Jo so far has been excellent.

Last year Kelly Jo introduced us to the idea of a cruise. We didn't know anything about it and she choose a fantastic itinerary on a great ship. We were going to do the same this year until CORVID-19 changed everyone's plans. Kelly Jo offered great advice on our options and did the leg work for us to cancel the trip.
