About Me:

About Me:

I have a passion for travel and for the exposure it gives me to the world around me and the appreciation of other cultures. “Faraway Places” was always a favorite song when I was growing up and those places have “called me!”  I am so fortunate to have found that calling in my career as a travel advisor. I love my clients and working with them to plan their “perfect” vacation/getaway/reunion/holiday! My affiliation with Travel Society and their (& my) association with Virtuoso opens unimaginable doors to wonderful places around the globe with special perks and extra amenities available only to Virtuoso members. In addition, my VAST Alliance and its travel partners gives yet another perspective of how both travel and the world are changing with more action-oriented travel (be it “soft” in a bike ride through Tuscany or a little more “hardcore” such as a trek along the Inca Trail in Peru). Whatever your passion in travel, I’m ready to assist you with my experience and guidance to create your own memories – that’s what I do best: craft a travel experience for you that is uniquely yours!

Client Testimonials:

“Using Connie as a travel agent was easy because she was already our neighbor and friend. She has helped us to plan trips in Europe, Asia, Australia, and within the US. Connie is a very good listener, and knows the kinds of hotels and experiences we prefer. She has always helped us make good choices of transportation and accommodations, and is willing to work with recommendations of others and off-tour experiences. She has connected us with resources we never would have found out about, such as personally tailored guided tours in China. We gladly recommend Connie for her knowledge of travel and her flexibility. ”  – Larry and Jerri Meisner

My wife and I have used Connie as our travel agent since we first met seven years ago. We could not be more pleased with her service. Connie has expertly arranged trips to China, Europe and SE Asia for us. Her attention to detail has made these vacations the absolute best of our lives.

Connie has also found us fantastic deals on numerous cruises. We have gone on twenty-nine cruises since 1985, and it is clear to us that Connie’s knowledge of the cruise industry is second to none. My wife and I agree that Connie will always our travel agent.  – Dr. and Mrs. William J. Zimmer, D.D.S.

About Me:

About Me:

My passion for travel began at age 12 when traveling alone on the Orient Express from Paris to Salzburg each summer. After being exposed to numerous foreign nationals at a young age travel sparked my interest with the desire to explore the world. After a career in education and approaching retirement years it seemed only natural to jump start a new career to finally fulfill my dream of travel! Having now worked in the travel industry for 15 years my passion for travel continues! Every vacation package is like my own! Expertise, experience and enthusiasm are key to success. Creating a unique experience with classic flair yet value driven is my goal!

Client Testimonials:

Gudrun has been a godsend for our family, managing five complex trips on three continents. Nothing seems to phase her: special events, unusual housing requests, and family members converging from multiple points. We have visited a favela school in Rio, taken a jeep tour of the Golan Heights, crossed heavily armed boarders, rented an apartment in Rome, and sailed blissfully on a gulet along the Turkish coast. Gudrun has arranged for expert guides and flawless service everywhere we have gone. Traveling by plane, train, speedboat, sailboat, bus and automobile (even camel!), our family has benefited from her attention to detail.
Gudrun has addressed the needs of all the members of our family, from finding the perfect place for a seven year-old’s birthday dinner to arranging activities suitable for a pair of teenage boys and their grandmother! She was indispensable when weather delays in the US caused a significant revision of our itinerary, and I am grateful for her advice and her flexibility. I plan to call on her again for our next adventure.

“I have been blessed with an extraordinary travel agent whom I also consider a close friend – Gudrun Vest. Her knowledge, attention to detail, and customer service is by far the best we have experienced with all of our vendors and agents with whom I have dealt with during the 30+ years I have been traveling. She goes above and beyond the call of duty with cheerfulness and efficiency every time!”

About Me:

About Me:

I started my ‘adventure’ career as an instructor in the mountain program for the Colorado Outward Bound School.  That experience led me to becoming a trekking guide in Nepal and India where I worked off and on for 14 years.  I started working for a traditional travel agency in 1992, selling adventure and experiential travel across the globe.   I have lived in Zambia, working in a safari lodge and Egypt, just for the experience.  I travel extensively seeking out new ideas for dream trips for you!
