Katie was awesome and great working with as we planned this family vacation. I never would have known what to do and when to do it, what my options were and when I had to pay and how much I owed.

Katie orchestrated the perfect getaway for my husband & I this spring. We were looking for a resort in the states with beautiful hikes, delicious healthy food, pool & spa services.

We did all the "normal" things people do when they're in the Black Hills: Mt.

Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Patty F. - Pittsburgh, PA | Traveled to Yellowstone National Park ~ Wyoming ~ USA
This was the best vacation I've ever had. Everything was wonderful. I learned how to fly fish and I now love it. The quad trip was a blast. The scenery between South Dakota and Wyoming was absolutely breathtaking. I would do this over again in a heartbeat. Katie was fantastic she was always there to help us. Her work was phenomenal. I don't know how I could have done this without her.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Extremely easy to work with and we were provided with great options at every turn. I felt like I could choose to pay more for certain services but nothing was pushed on me. My friend chose the travel agency and I haven't previously worked with one, but wouldn't want to plan a trip on my own again.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Katie Turpin, CTA responded:
Thanks so much for your business; I'm thrilled you ladies enjoyed your time in Cancun!
