As a travel advisor, I genuinely enjoy helping others craft their dream trip.

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 look forward to working with you to create a dream vacation within your budget. One of my passions is planning beach vacations as I grew up five houses from the ocean and the beach was my sandbox. I experienced the beauty of the sand and the sea and have been to many beach resorts in Mexico, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Costa Rica and Fiji. Consequently, I can guide you in choosing the right beach destination for you. I also enjoy developing itineraries for stunning ocean and river cruises, tours and packages to Europe, Alaska and other havens of your choosing. I’ve been a travel advisor since 1989 and have been working independently with The Travel Society since 1993. I have traveled extensively and have knowledgeable contacts that are experts in many locations. I am detailed oriented and pursue perfection as client retention and referrals are paramount to me.

About Me:

I love developing customized itineraries for my clients to the far reaches of the world.  I believe travel is  a catalyst for growth.  The interaction and connection with different cultures, cuisines, places and people opens our minds and our hearts to our human similarities.  My life is enhanced through my travel experiences and the travel experiences of my clients.

Sustainable travel is a specialty of mine.  Before I started my travel business, I worked as a civil engineer specializing in water projects for 20 years.  I actively study sustainability and seek out sustainable and environmentally conscious travel experiences.  My intention is to deliver a high end travel experience with a low ecological footprint.

I use a collaborative travel planning process.  The travel planning process begins with me listening to my clients and understanding their travel objectives. As I learn and understand their travel style, preferences and passions, we will collaborate on their trip. Based on our collaboration, I will design their trip itinerary and handle all of the logistics. I have a vast network of travel industry relationships that I utilize while designing travel. I am available to my clients before, during and after their travels. After my clients have traveled, I will be in touch to hear how they enjoyed your trip and apply what I learn from your feedback to future trips.

Keely is amazing! Our trip to San Francisco for my family could not have been more special. There is no doubt in my mind that Keely is the reason for this. From start to finish she was knowledgeable, accessible, and professional. I cannot wait to take another vacation and have Keely plan it for me.
– Wayne Westerfield
We never want to travel without Keely’s help again!! We loved every detail and all of Keely’s recommendations!
