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:

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.

About Me:

About Me:

In the last 35 years I created and booked over half a million vacations; from custom-designing international adventures to expedition cruises, from escorted tours to honeymoons. No two trips are ever the same and the options are limitless – rent a villa in Tuscany, charter a yacht in Belize, or take the family on a canal barge in France. How about a hot air balloon ride in Myanmar or a trek in  Patagonia ? Maybe you are looking for the perfect beach getaway in the South Pacific ? I know I can make your dreams come true.

For the last ten years my special passion has been orchestrating safe adventure experiences around the globe for my clients. Whether you would like to walk with the penguins in Antarctica, photograph polar bears in the Arctic, or marvel at the underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef — if you can dream it, I can help you achieve it. Picture yourself in the presence of orangutans on Borneo, lions in Botswana, or tigers in India. You can rest assured that you will never forget these experiences. These are memories of a life-time for you and for any special person you may want to share them with.

Like you, I also love to travel. My personal travel destinations include all seven continents, and too many countries to list them all. Some of my favorite places are found in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, South America, South Georgia, as well as Australia, New Zealand, China, Myanmar, and islands from the Caribbean to the South Pacific. My travels have taken me through most of the countries of Europe and Russia; countries amazingly rich in history & culture.

I would love to share my personal insights and travel expertise with you. Let my experience and knowledge of these places translate into your next exciting and successful voyage.

Client Testimonials:

Our family had the luxury of planning a perfect and memorable trip with Katja this past summer to South Africa and Botswana. It truly was a trip of a lifetime. Katja was an invaluable part of our vacation: she planned all of our complex flights with family members flying from different areas of the country and helped us to find the exact Safari Lodges to meet our interests and needs. Katja is one of those magical agents, she listens and understands your interests and your needs and does all she can to match you to an itinerary that works for you. In addition, she provided  us with the names of exceptional guides at each location and followed through with making sure our trip ran as smoothly as humanly possible. Her attention to detail is extraordinary, her dedication to her clients is only matched by her expertise in travel and her desire to take exceptional care of all who entrust their trip with her.  She handled and facilitated all areas of our trip from complex airline reservations, trip insurance, private charters, guides and each and every one of our accommodations. There is nothing Katja isn’t willing to do for her clients before, during or after the trip. I recommend her without reservation. She is a gifted travel agent and travel companion wherever you choose to travel in the world! – J. & H. from Los Angeles, June 2013
