Luxury Caribbean, African & European Travel

On safari in Kenya
On safari in Kenya

As the owner/agent with Palms & Peaks Travel, LLC, it is my goal to offer exceptional, personalized service to craft your vacation itinerary.

In Europe, explore the Italian countryside, visit Normandy beaches, or take a multi-country tour. Stay in a castle, hire a car and driver, eat with a local family at their farmhouse. Book a private itinerary or take a group tour where you are likely to meet new friends to share your adventures.

In the Caribbean, lounging at a luxurious, all-inclusive resort or boutique hotel can be a good way to spend a vacation! However, even at a resort, you don't want to miss out on the local culture, history, and surrounding nature of the destination. I strive to create itineraries that offer an extra touch, which may be a suggested excursion, dining experience or event.

Combine adventure with luxury on your trip to Africa! Stay in a five-star, modern hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, and venture to the Karen Blixen Musem to see the location for the Oscar-winning film "Out of Africa," before you head out to your own safari in search for the "Big 5". Spend a few days "glamping" in your private getaway, and take time for white-water rafting or skydiving on the coast! Ask me about other African destinations, including multi-country itineraries.

I also have a special interest in planning family vacations that offer something for everyone. A river cruise is a great way to visit many European destinations.  Consider special interest or themed trips and tours for your group or family reunion.

Disney is one of my obsessions. I have been to Walt Disney World several times, and it is a family tradition. I would love to help you plan the perfect Walt Disney World vacation. I can offer advice on where to stay, dining plans, Fast Pass booking, and more.

'Vacations Create Life Stories' is my motto. I am passionate about exploration and travel. Trying out a new location, or putting a twist on an old favorite, can generate fresh stories and enrich your experiences. If you can dream it, I can plan it, and get you going on your next adventure.

Fabulous trip!

Reviewed By Lynn - Greenville NC | Traveled to Mexico
Karen was very helpful and not only searched for things I asked about- but she also offered good suggestions for places I hadn’t considered. I hope to try some of them out in the future. She was also patient when I was indecisive and changed our whole strategy. She offered travel suggestions and provided information about the area. She was always available for questions. Great experience.

A cruise we will always remember!

Reviewed By Happy UnCruisers - Hagerstown, MD | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Karen responded within minutes of our first email inquiring about booking an Uncruise excursion. She enthusiastically, conscientiously and patiently answered our questions -- preparing us for our most memorable vacation ever! Even after booking our vacation, and her job apparently done, she still kept in touch and gave advice only a seasoned traveler could provide. We will confidently recommend her to our friends.

Takes the stress out of vacation planning!

Reviewed By Meg - Frederick, MD | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Karen was wonderful and gave such good recommendations for our Disney Halloween trip based on our likes, preferences and family member ages. We preferred using Southwest, so she always kept a lookout for ticket opening dates to make sure we could get them before the flight sold out. She was always very responsive with e-mails and went the extra mile to contact Disney support when things went wonky with their website. She took the stress out of planning this vacation and I am very grateful to her and the service she provides. Thank you, Karen! :)
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Karen Allanach responded:
Thank you Megan! It was a pleasure to serve you and your wonderful family! I know your Disney vacation will be magical!
