My Insider Travel Tip

Always request a complimentary upgrade at hotel check-in and upon arrival at the airport, you never get what you don’t ask for.

My Travel Specialties

Multi-destination European travel, Mexico, Caribbean, Italy, Switzerland, Family travel, group travel, couples trips, spring break travel.

I would definitely recommend working with Tara, she went above and beyond every step of the way. She was attentive and responsive and always worked to find us unique experiences and perfectly located hotels. We loved her special touch of leaving us a note and wine in our room as a special welcome!
