About Me:

I was born in Siberia, Russia, and travel has been my passion since my parents took me to Georgia and Abkhazia, and then to Uzbekistan as a child. Although I dreamed of becoming a flight attendant and then a ship captain to quench my wanderlust, my career path had initially taken me in a different direction. After receiving a Master’s degree from the University of Georgia (the state, not the country!), I spent 20 years at top advertising agencies in New York before becoming a Luxury Travel Advisor.  

As a Travel Advisor, I specialize in designing tailor-made itineraries to less explored parts of the world. Some of my favorite destinations are those that allow one to get close to wildlife (Galapagos Islands, Borneo, South Africa) or marvel at wonders of nature (Tasmania, Patagonia, Palawan). Cultures different from my own fascinate me (Bhutan, including homestays with 2 local families in remote villages, has been my #1 travel experience to date, and Iran is #1 on my bucket list).  

I believe that getting to the destination is an integral part of the travel experience. Having mastered the art of collecting and redeeming airline miles and credit card points, most of my flights (and all of the long haul ones) are in Business or First class for very little out- of- pocket. I use this knowledge to devise the best miles redemption strategies for my clients and advise on best routing, seats, airlines, and aircraft types.

 

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS:

 “Jaw-dropping, authentic, gritty, beautiful and eccentric are words I like to experience when I go on my vacation excursions. With Inga my vacations to Vietnam, Laos, Bhutan, and Thailand were all precisely that! We lived with the locals and trekked to Tiger’s Nest in Bhutan, a life-changing experience, chilled with Monks on the Eastern Himalayas, relaxed on a beautiful overnight boat tour of Halong Bay, Vietnam, learned how to cook Lao dishes in Luang Prabang, and even dined at Gaggan, the 7th best restaurant in the world (also featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table). If you can dream it, Inga will locate it and get you there!” (Edie PM, Los Angeles, CA)

 “Inga from WanderWild Travel planned an incredible trip to the Philippines for our group that was the perfect combination of luxurious relaxation and exciting adventures! From ATV’ing through the Chocolate Hills to swimming with Whale Sharks, I had so many amazing experiences on this trip that I will never forget. I’m so grateful to WanderWild Travel for planning this perfect vacation and can’t wait for Inga to plan my next adventure!” (Mary L, New York, NY)

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:

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.

 

Client Testimonials

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!

“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!”
