Travel style

Named one of Fora's top travel advisors, I'm a travel enthusiast who has been lucky enough to explore 34 countries (and counting!) with my adventurous husband and daughter by my side (she's been to 10 countries so far). My happy place? A stunning boutique hotel with a breathtaking view, poolside bliss and the convenience of room service (or at least, in-room coffee is a must!). My absolute favorite thing to do is discovering luxurious, one-of-a-kind properties in various destinations and roaming around new cities exploring on foot. As a travel advisor, nothing brings me more joy than creating unforgettable memories for families and couples. Let me help turn your travel dreams into reality!

Amanda's reviews

Amanda is the best!! She has helped with several of my trips and has always been able to advise on her personal experiences leading to the best possible times! I love working with her and can’t wait for the next adventure to book - Thank you Amanda!

Amanda is such a joy to work with! She took all our requests and turned them into a really perfect getaway. She provided great communication and made the whole process so easy. Amanda arranged for some awesome welcome goodies for my birthday and that was such a nice surprise upon arriving in our rooms. Will absolutely use Amanda for future travel needs!

Amanda was resourceful, responsible and fantastic to work with. Would definitely book with Amanda again!

Amanda is amazing!! She was very thorough and responsive throughout the whole process, even when she was out of the country! She made sure to advocate for me throughout the whole process and even while I was on my vacation. So grateful to have her as my travel advisor during this trip because I feel her knowledge and expertise helped curate a much better experience for me. Thanks Amanda!!
