I’m a passionate world traveler who’s visited 59 countries and counting. I’ve worked in a variety of areas in the travel field including: study abroad advisor, program leader in Europe and Fulbright scholarship program officer. As a travel advisor, I genuinely enjoy helping others craft their dream trip. I primarily book multi-city Europe vacations, Thailand excursions, central and south america getaways and lately I’ve been booking more group trips. I’m traveling with 10 clients to Antarctica in January- I can’t wait!

About Me:

Ever since I was in junior high school, I had a fascination with geography. I grew up in Canada where it is a “required” subject starting in junior high. I originally wanted to be a missionary and travel the world helping underserved children and adults. As time progressed, I had other aspirations and after 2 years of college was hired by the airlines as a flight attendant. I flew with Braniff Airlines for 8 years, until they filed bankruptcy in 1982. I loved to travel and wanted to stay in the travel business, so I decided to attend school to become a Travel agent. I graduated in 1983 and immediately started working at a Travel Agency in Boca Raton, Florida. I was put on the front lines handling constant calls and people walking in the agency. We booked travel to every part of the world for business and leisure travelers. I learned a lot very quickly. I moved into management a couple of years later and learned all I could about the day to day operations of a Travel Agency. I moved to Colorado in 1986 and continued working in the Travel Business again in a busy agency environment. I have traveled to over 80 countries and by bicycle in many European, North American and Asian countries. Karima Tannis

Client Testimonials:

“Oh my! Many, many stories! Everything you planned was fabulous! Thank you for doing so well what we LET you do. ”

Patti: “Thank you for helping us to plan a wonderful, restful vacation. I recommend you to all that ask. ”

Carol: “Thanks so much for the dinner on board the Symphony. It was an unexpected surprise. The cruise was excellent and our cabins were perfect. Thanks for all your help in arranging the details. I wasn’t sure if I would like cruising we are already talking about doing a week for the two of us in February of 2021. Blessings,

C.H. “We had an awesome time. Very laid back and we accomplished a lot in a short time. Sheridan House in Williams AZ was the way to go, lodging wise. Hosts Mark and Deb were amazing and Mark even made us (Deborah and me) vegan breakfast options, per request. The rooms were great and the beds were huge and comfy. The lack of rugrats (kids) was also a plus. My mom had a great time and we saw some great sights of the Grand Canyon. We got in a train trip one day and Canyon Dave’s tour, with driver Keaton, was educational and resulted in many photo ops. Thanks for organizing everything Kari. You do exceptional work! ”

Joe: “We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful time that we had in our travels. Everything went perfectly and connections were all smooth. We had great food, great tours, fun train rides, and a lot of nice walks. You know how to do it right girl….thanks so much.”

Rob: ” First of all, thank you SO much for arranging our trip in New Zealand last September after Worlds in Gold Coast. It was PERFECT! The transfers were all on time – and the bus drivers were like tour guides. We loved traveling in this manner because we had the security of knowing that you had everything planned, but also felt like we had freedom (unlike those we saw with tour groups). Our favorite place was Franz Josef. The little town was quaint and we LOVED hiking on the glacier. Truly breathtaking. It was an amazing trip. You are the BEST!.”

Sue: “Our trip was wonderful. Thank you for doing such a great job organizing and picking such great places.”

Diane: “What a trip! Windstar cruise was fabulous. Loved the small yacht feel. Service was excellent. All of the ports were amazing. We ended up adding Ibiza excursion and so glad we did. Barcelona was a blast – the Indigo is in a great location. We could have stayed there another day. We learned to use the hop on, hop off buses to get a good overview of the cities. The Dom Pedro hotel was very classy . Really glad we added the Sintras visit at the end. Beautiful area in Portugal. Everything turned out wonderful! Thank you for all of your help with the trip! We will definitely do one of these cruises again.”

About Me:
I was born to be in the Travel Industry. Travel has been an important in my family ever since I can remember. My Grandma was a world traveler and watching her travel inspired me to travel the world. I took my first trip abroad when I was 14 to Eastern Europe. Ever since then I have been immersed in learning different cultures and seeing different places. Since I love travel so much, I decided to make it my career. After 7 years of working different customer service jobs, I decided to further my studies and attend a Travel School. I am a recent graduate of Penn Foster Travel and Tourism Specialist course. In my studies I learned about, world geography, airline history and guidelines, hotels, cars, railways, tours, cruises, ethics, and much more. I have taken the Travel Agent Proficiency exam through the Travel Institute and am currently TAP certified. I am on my way to becoming a destination specialist of Western and Eastern Europe. Whether you are traveling for business or personal reasons, let me help you have a perfect vacation!

About Me:

Travel for me is all about the experience. The experience of planning, the anticipation of the trip, getting to a destination and then immersing myself. Every aspect is important and every detail is important to me; even which exact seat on the plane is likely to give me the best experience. I’m all about goals and goal setting. I love working with clients to help them figure out what is most important for them. When they’re not sure, being able to use my own experience and network is where it gets fun as no two people are the same. I’m also an expert when it comes to using points and miles and am happy to help you get the most out of them.

“People ask me constantly… ‘Why do you use a travel agent?’…. I don’t, because Tamera Hoyt is no ordinary travel agent, she is a business partner!

I can’t imagine attempting to do what she does, on my own. For the past ten years I have never been disappointed, never been “stuck”, and NEVER had to talk to an airline… because she is such a professional… we now use her for all of our family travel as well!”
