About Me:

About Me:

I have been a Travel Agent since 1993.  I book both corporate and leisure travel and have extensive experience booking domestic as well as international travel, including air, hotels and cars, rail, packages, tours and cruises.  I also have valuable experience booking groups for a variety of purposes and to various destinations.  I am a certified Aussie Specialist (Australia) and Kiwi Specialist (New Zealand) as well as an Accredited Cruise Counselor.  I have also obtained my “College of Disney Knowledge” certification, identifying me as a Disney Specialist.  African safaris have become a passion as well, after having gone on one myself in Kenya in 2011.  My very favorite destination, for personal travel as well as booking for clients, is the South Pacific, particularly Australia and New Zealand.  I backpacked through Australia and NZ for a year back in 1990/91 and have returned to Australia three times since.  I returned to New Zealand most recently in April 2009.  I have also attended numerous Aussie & Kiwi Specialist Conventions.  I am very familiar with these countries and am comfortable creating any personalized itinerary there.  I also have an excellent relationship with a wholesaler for Down Under.

Of-course I book many other destinations besides Down Under, particularly Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Disney vacations and cruises.  I also enjoy working with groups such as family reunions, clubs/common interest groups and destination weddings.  I find working with a travel advisor is especially beneficial for groups, having one point of contact and an experienced advisor familiar with group needs and procedures.

Client Quotes:

” Sarah Bender has been the best travel agent I’ve had in a long time. I travel extensively and using her services has been a “no-brainer” for me. Sarah was very quick to pick up on my habits and has always been very thorough in her research of great deals given my expectations of flight times, destinations and pricing. She is very personable, always recommends the best package, while respecting my requirements. Above all, she is

extremely patient in dealing with clients like myself, as I make plans at the very last minute and change itineraries frequently—never once did I ever sense her annoyance. She is my travel agent for both personal and work travels. I have recommended her services to the company I work for and they are extremely happy with her services. Her fees are inexpensive compared to the amount of leg work she does for you. Each time Sarah comes back with a price, I am confident she has done her homework—and that’s what matters—the bottom line!” — Samantha F. Melbourne IT

“ Since April 2000, I have relied on Sarah to make my travel arrangements. She always responds quickly to my questions and requests and is fantastic at keeping all my idiosyncrasies in mind so my itineraries help me to stay sane during my travels.  In complicated trips, she is adept at finding a

reasonable plan that fits my requirements and is at a low price. She is always professional, thorough, and easy to work with. In conclusion, I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, friendly, and extremely competent travel agent.” — Edward K. Dept. Nuclear Physics at University of Colorado

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

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 down 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!

About Me:

About Me:

I was raised in a strong Irish community where families would travel together and spend summers at Hayden Lake in the northern Idaho panhandle. Our winters were also spent with the same group on one of the six Ski Mountains within an hour of Spokane. Needless to say, my exposure to the outdoors began at an early age and has molded the type of travel agent I am today. I have a passion for nature. I love mountains and lakes. One of the first times I ever visited a metropolitan city was when I was in high school and won a trip to San Francisco. I was amazed at the beauty of the city and little did I know I would end up calling it home for 25 years. I became a travel agent simply with the hopes of being able to travel. It’s a thrill to help design itineraries for people who like to experience other cultures and open their eyes to the ways other people live. I love talking to my clients and making their wishes come alive. Some of my traveling highlights include having dinner on the outside deck of a river cruise while sailing through the Wachau Valley, walking across the Chain Bridge with my son in Budapest, driving from Mopti to Timbuktu and meeting members of the Tuareg tribe riding a camel on their way to the marketplace. Once, while zip-lining in the jungle of Tabasco, I was chased by a howling monkey – its experiences like that you’ll never forget. I am a mother, a wife and a daughter that enjoys her life and feels blessed every day. My son is my best travel partner. He loves to learn, see, touch, feel and experience every place we visit. I look forward to crafting your next trip.
