About Me:

Travel, planning travel and introducing others to travel is my passion! Some highlights of my experience include – Former flight attendant with American Airlines; Personal travel throughout the USA plus 36 countries; Researching, planning and booking trips to ensure easy, worry-free travel with special sights and experiences. My husband, Jon, and I formed “Travel with Jon & Carol” as part of Vista Adventure Travel, LLC. We have found that travel can be intimidating, so our focus is to provide even less-experienced travelers with a small, private guided tour together with us. We focus on incredible food, culture and history and provide local guide specialists to experience both USA and world-wide destinations. As an example, we recently completed an all-inclusive guided tour, 10-days, to three Asian countries – Singapore, Siem Reap, Cambodia and Hong Kong. There is still room to book and be part of our next trip! I would love to be your travel consultant whether you need my services for planning, booking, and coordinating your future trips or you will join us on one of our tours. What new adventure is calling to you?

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!

From Seoul to Busan, we sampled so many aspects of Korean History, of Korean life style (yes, we learned to make Kimchi), Korean stunning landscape and UNESCO sites, watching Pearl divers, visiting Folk Villages, shopping at street markets for snacks!

About Me:

I was born in Turkey, and have offices in both Istanbul and Naperville/Chicago, Illinois. I’m a destination specialist for Turkey and India, where I lived for several months in 2007 and 2008. I created the Maharajas Secret Places program, and through my on-site connections in northern India, I’ve helped my clients visit palaces, dine with the Maharaja’s , go on camel safaris, and take exclusive, behind-the-scenes tours of the area’s museums, jewelry, and sari shops.

I also love traveling to Morocco, Greece, Egypt, and the U.S. Some special touches I’ve arranged for my clients in those areas have included surprise helicopter rides over the Sahara Desert and a private yacht tour through the Greek Isles.

“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!”

“Thank you for all your help and support in planning our anniversary trip. Your guidance on itineraries, hotels, restaurants as well as your connections to other top-rated professionals like yourself created a perfect journey with many memorable moments. We could not have managed such a romantic, jam packed, and at the same time realizing trip had it not bee for you. Your quick responses to numerous emails, refinements to itineraries, hotel and restaurant reservations were much appreciated and save us precious time. The fact that some of the work had to be accomplished at night and over weekends reflects customer service at its best.”

Client Quotes:

Spain was wonderful and we all really appreciated the hard work you put into finding us such great hotels as well as tours and travel suggestions. Our guide at the Alhambra was incredibly knowledgeable as was Sebastian in Madrid. We ended up spending 7.5 hours with him including a long lunch. He sure knows his history and was eager to educate us. I think he appreciated how curious we all were.” -Pam, Laura & Jeff ”

We had a fabulous vacation. The time you spent finding out our needs was clear from the itinerary. You did an unbelievable job on our itinerary and the guides and drivers were awesome. The itinerary was flawless and hotels were very nice. I carefully kept tract of the name of each guide with the intention of singling the best out for praise, but I rate each of them at 10 out 10. They were all exceedingly professional and knowledgeable, projected pride in their work, and did a wonderful job of seamlessly adjusting their tours to match Jackie’s abilities. I will be happy to serve as a reference for you.” -Jackie & Bruce
