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:

For much of my adult life, I was an avid traveler who dreamed about a career in travel, but didn’t pursue it because I was busy with my corporate job and my family. That is, until I had to quit my job to take care of my elderly parents. During that time, I realized that life was too short to not follow my passion! I started my journey as a travel consultant in August of 2012 and haven’t looked back! Who Are My Clients? Families, Small Groups, Honeymooners and Retirees looking to fulfill their bucket list. What is My Specialty? I have the capability to plan just about any type of trip anywhere in the world but specialize in custom-designed trips to Europe. Why Is Travel Planning Your Passion? It is an honor to help people create unforgettable memories through travel while they recharge and reconnect with one another. When Do They Need My Help? I help when people are too busy to plan, are overwhelmed by choices or when the journey is too complicated to do on their own.

About Me:

About Me:

Travel is my passion and planning it to perfection for my clients is what I strive for every day. Whether you are looking for a beach vacation with a flair of local culture or a multi-city tour of Europe or South America. I get down to the details so you can enjoy your vacation rather than planning it while there.

Honeymoons are my favorite! My own to Greece has served as my inspiration. And when couples return again and again asking me to plan their family getaways I know I’ve done my job right.

Destination Weddings can be overwhelming for couples but I alleviate the guess work and manage everyone’s travel arrangements.

Family vacations are close and dear to my heart. As a mother of teenagers I understand the challenges and the rewards of taking time away as a family. The memories you make together are priceless and the kids walk away with a learning experience when you throw some culture and fun into the mix.
Call or email me today and let’s make your dream trip a reality!
