Specialist in Family, Luxury, and Honeymoon Travel

A long-time travel enthusiast, I entered the travel industry professionally in 2017. Since then, I have planned over 250 vacations. I specialize in planning incredible and memorable trips that are as unique as each of my clients. My goal is to develop a working relationship that allows me to recommend locations, properties, and experiences that are a perfect fit for every client. I work with in-country experts and use my own extensive research and experience to craft custom itineraries, find the perfect resort, and even make sure you don't spend the entirety of your Disney vacation waiting in lines. 

As a mother of young children, I understand the stresses that can surround family travel. I take all the worry out of the process! I am happy to suggest the perfect resorts and hotels for your family, work with the best suppliers to find family-friendly tours of sites like the Vatican or the Louvre, and I even provide concierge-level Disney planning services. A common remark from my family clients after our initial phone conversation is, "I feel SO much better about this trip! I'm now really looking forward to it!" Family vacations are crucial to creating memories that last a lifetime. Why not leave this important investment in the hands of an expert? 

As much as I love family travel, I also like to get away without the kids! I plan vacations for couples and groups of couples and friends to destinations all over the world. From active and adventure itineraries like cycling tours in Ireland to relaxing beach vacations in the Caribbean or South Pacific... I've got you covered! Are history and art more your speed? I not only recommend museums and historical sites, I book unique experiences with guides who are experts in their fields. Theatre buff? I can get you those tickets to a musical in the West End or to a concert in Vienna. 

I do my absolute best to plan and check everything thrice to ensure you have a worry-free trip. However, we all know that sometimes travel mishaps can happen. Flights can be delayed, weather can be poor, or your rental car could pop a tire. I wish I could prevent all of that from happening, but if troubles do occur while you travel, I am only a phone call or text away, and I work with you immediately to get the problem fixed. Once I had a client stranded on the side of a mountain in Alaska (midnight my time), and I worked with both the cruise line and local police to ensure they made it down the mountain safely and back to their ship before it left port. You are in the capable hands of a caring agent when you book with me. 

So, wherever you dream to explore, whatever you long to experience, and whatever you want to cross off that bucket list, I am here to help ensure you have an incredible vacation.

Great trip

Reviewed By Stephanie - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We had a great experience with Pandia. While we had a pretty good idea what we were looking for when we started, but I had lots of anxiety, and it was great having someone else to calm my fears and think through the options. We almost waited too late to book, and had some trouble getting our flights, but she worked really hard to get them. I'm pretty sure she had to make a lot of phone calls to figure out why they weren't going through. In the end, the original flights were not available, but she came up with another solution that was actually better than the original option.

Pandia goes the extra mile for our Cruise Vacation

Reviewed By Kimberly S - Olathe, KS | Traveled to San Juan ~ Puerto Rico ~ Caribbean
Pandia always checks to be sure you are going to be able to relax from the moment you start planning. No need to do the tedious research, just which jewelry store to pick your treasure to remember your trip! We ran into some crazy travel delays (over 24 hours) so we had to file a claim with insurance. Pandia helped with a link directly to the claim form. Finally, she always sets us up with the best excursions. This time, in St. Lucia, we had the most amazing catamaran sail -- with a whole pod of dolphins swimming alongside -- to a natural, hot sulphur spring mud bath, to lunch at a cocoa plantation and snorkeling. The company lived up to their promise to get us back on board on time -- guaranteed! When some other slowpoke tourists delayed us they drove the catamaran right beside the ship and we boarded just in time! No pier running for us! Thanks, Pandia, for going the extra mile for all your clients but making us feel like the only client!

Perfect 3-general girls trip!

Reviewed By Jenny - Shawnee, KS | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Pandia planned a "girls cruise" for three generations of ladies. She provided coordination of transportation and lodging from the airport to cruise launch and home again that ensured smooth sailing and peace of mind. She advised on and booked cruise packages and room choices that resulted in an amazing time by all. Pandia is prompt, available, thorough, and a lot of fun to work with. We look forward to our next opportunity to plan a trip with Pandia.

A Magical Vacation-Disney Done Right!

Reviewed By lppauls - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
I was tempted to book and plan our 10-day Disney vacation myself, but am SO THANKFUL I enlisted Pandia to assist me! Having her to tell me the best days to go to specific parks, recommended restaurants to visit, what special events were happening, and which specials or deals we had access to was a priceless advantage. Pandia helped me book dining and reserve fast passes (we were able to get passes for both Avatar attractions, saving us a couple of 2 hour waits)! We had such an amazing time, we booked another trip with Pandia before we got on the plane to leave Orlando... and I have referred a few friends so they can have the same experience we did! Highly, highly recommend!

Worry-free Vacation

Reviewed By Mom to 5 - Lenexa, KS | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Pandia was a dream to work with. I was overwhelmed with the thought of navigating this trip with all the choices. Pandia was so knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. She was on top of all the deadlines of when things needed to be signed up for or registered for. She was great about asking about our family preferences and making suggestions to fit them. Her selections for our Fast Passes and Table Service meals were great! I truly appreciated her guidance on which rides/attractions to take in between our scheduled events. I would fully recommend Pandia to help you plan your next trip!

Magical Disney Vacation

Reviewed By Shayla - Overland Park, KS | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
I’m so glad we had Pandia’s help in planning our Disney vacation! She was very responsive and quick to answer all my Disney questions as a first timer. She had so many great tips for how to navigate the parks and make the most of every moment. She helped us plan all aspects of our trip and even found us last minute reservations to Chef Mickey. She even jumped in on Christmas Eve to help us locate tickets that had been lost in the mail right before fast pass day! She went above and beyond to make sure our trip was absolutely perfect and it was. We will absolutely use Pandia again for our next Disney vacation!

5 kids/2 adults in Germany - No worries

Reviewed By Jessica - Overland Park, KS | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
Pandia was fantastic to work with during the whole process of our Family Germany Trip. We had 5 kids, 2 adults (crazy we know), but planning was not something we had to worry about. Pandia dotted all the I's and crossed the T's for us. There was a minor hiccup with one of our hotels and Pandia was communicating with us the whole time during it. I have recommend Pandia to several of my friends! Thank you for helping us create memories!

Saved from Bears and Missing the Ship

Reviewed By Debbie - Lenexa, KS | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Booking an Alaskan Cruise through Pandia Graves turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made as she saved us from a near disaster.

Near the end of one shore day we were alone climbing down a mountain trail in Juneau as the sun was setting and there was not enough time to make it back to the ship before it departed. Nobody knew where we were. We tried to reach both the ship and the people who had been running the businesses at the top of the mountain by phone with no success.

We called Pandia. Even though it was 1am her time she picked up and went to work for us. She called the ship and the Juneau Police Department who notified Mountain Services. Both of these service providers followed our progress.

Due to Pandia’s intervention, the ship sent a car for us and waited for our arrival. Something that could have ended very badly turned out just fine because of Pandia's competency and dedication to her clients.

Beautiful New England tour

Reviewed By RJ - Mission, KS | Traveled to Boston ~ Massachusetts ~ USA
We had an ambitious travel plan that needed a lot of research that we simply didnt have time to accomplish on our own. Traveling to an area we had not visited and no connections. Not only did we need help planning our travel and accommodations, but recommendations on where to go and what to experience.

Pandia made everything easy and wonderful. All our requests were met and we had an amazing travel experience. I cannot imagine having anywhere near the same experience without Pandia's help.

A fantastic Orlando getaway!

Reviewed By Leah - Iowa City, IA | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Pandia helped us plan a fantastic trip to Universal Studios in Orlando last March. She was knowledgeable, helpful, patient, and very responsive. She took care of all of the details--from plane tickets to park tickets--and knew all of the ins and outs of navigating the park. I attribute the success of our vacation largely to her. She is a consummate travel professional, and I will turn to her again and again for our travel-planning needs. I highly recommend her, and I give her an A++++!

Our honeymoon!

Reviewed By Ali - Wichita, Ks | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Pandia was SO helpful!! When we worked with Pandia, we didn't know where we wanted to go yet. We gave her some things we were hoping for on our trip as well as a budget and she provided options for us. She was fast, efficient and available to answer questions when we had them. She made things effortless for us, we could not have asked for a better experience! We will absolutely be using her for future needs and can't recommend her enough.

No stress family vacation!

Reviewed By Emily - Lenexa, KS | Traveled to San Diego ~ California ~ USA
In just two weeks time, Pandia planned, scheduled, and organized a fun vacation for my family of three. All we had to do was tell her we wanted, and she literally took care of everything else, other than packing our bags! Pandia found us a family friendly resort with a private bay area, and just a short walk away from a public beach. She gave us ideas for things to do, and even scheduled us with a photographer on location as a last minute idea. I wouldn't go on a trip again without booking with her-it's a no brainer!

Amazing Family Cruise!

Reviewed By Melissa H - Overland Park, KS | Traveled to Grand Cayman ~ Cayman Islands ~ Caribbean
Pandia is amazing! She is so knowledgeable, and is readily available to help at the drop of a hat. We had scheduled a big family trip through Pandia, and I forgot to relay to her an allergy one of my kids has to milk, and it occurred to me as we were boarding our ship that I hadn't requested a special menu for him in advance. I emailed her straight away, and she contacted Royal Caribbean immediately! She told us what to do to get the best service for him and his allergy. She also took time to talk about our various ports of call and what we might enjoy doing for each one. We even talked about the sleeping scenarios for my family of six. Seriously, she thinks of all the things. I couldn't travel without using her, she gives me so much peace of mind!

Dream Trip

Reviewed By Mamafox - Olathe, KS | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
I was so pleased with Pandia's excellent attention to our trip. Neither my husband nor myself had ever taken such a vacation - overseas for almost 2 weeks - and Pandia asked so many great questions to get the information she needed to create an incredible experience with all that we wanted. Beyond my expectations! Her attention to detail with our final travel folder with vouchers and details enclosed gave us great confidence to embark on our adventure. We loved our trip!
