World Travel Guru ~ Travel Orchestra
If you’re looking for travel agents who practice what they preach and travel the world, look no further! I've teamed up with inspiring world travelers to help orchestrate your trip. Our diverse backgrounds empower us with the valuable knowledge to advise based on our own first hand experiences. The goal is to facilitate experiences that not only reflect our love of adventure but shared values for sustainability. There are so many great reasons to play along with Travel Orchestra! My favorites include:
- Sustainability and eco-tourism
- Complex multi-stop itineraries
- Off the beaten path destinations
- Solo travel (especially women), families and groups
- Nature activities, scuba diving, wildlife safaris & expeditions
- Cultural immersion, authentic experiences, community engagement
- LGBTQ friendly!
Why let my ensemble of nomads orchestrate your trip?
WE SAVE YOU TIME!
Want to plan an amazing trip but don't have the time? It's said that the average consumer spends upwards of 8 hours researching and planning a trip. Most get frustrated and lose interest after the first 40 minutes. Our service does all the leg work so you don't have to, saving you time and energy.
WE OFFER INSIDE KNOWLEDGE & EXPERTISE!
Perhaps you've been meaning to plan that trip on your bucket list but don't know where to start? Travel Orchestra's team of expert advisers are dedicated to custom designing itineraries with attention to individual needs and desires. Our well-traveled agents plan fun trips to maximize your experience, helping you make the most of your time while avoiding the potential for hazards and hiccups.
WE MAKE TRAVEL PLANNING EASY!
In addition to phone and email, we're available to communicate with you via text, Whatsapp, and/or Facebook messenger. Whatever your preferred method of communication, we aim to please by making travel planning even more convenient.
WE BELIEVE IN INCLUSIVITY!
As advocates of the LGBTQ community, we believe it’s important to feel welcome and comfortable to be ourselves on vacation. The same goes for solo travelers, especially women! We also believe travel should be inclusive and understand what it means to accommodate those with special needs.
Kat Vallera ~ Conductor of Travel Orchestra
As a dual US/EU citizen, I've traveled nearly 60 countries and circumnavigated the globe twice. My background includes working abroad in Australia, Thailand and Indonesia, as well as study abroad in Italy. More often than not, I'm traveling solo! It's all about new friends and new experiences, adventure travel is my jam.
I'm also a freelance journalist as seen in TravelPulse, Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Herald & Review, and Seattle Times. After receiving a grant for agents of change, in 2015, I was honored to be named one of the “30 Under 30” in travel. Today, I sit on the board of the directors for the World Tourism Journalism Organization.
