Travel style

Foodie at heart, searching for unique and authentic experiences both near and far. But I'm never ashamed if I find myself checking out a tourist trap. Spontaneity is my specialty — I'm always booking my next trip based on the best flight deals I encounter. Nothing is better than finding an off-the-beaten-path café or vintage shop. Here to finally put my (sometimes unsolicited) travel advice to good use!

Amanda's reviews

From the beginning of planning this trip, I felt like Amanda had our best interest in mind at all times. She spent so much time getting to understand what we were looking for and researching options for us. When we had last minute issues and needed to unexpectedly reschedule the trip, she handled it all seamlessly. The perks we received from booking with her were awesome. I’ve never experienced such a personalized hotel stay. From the moment we checked in, we felt like kings with everything being handled for us. Getting upgraded to a suite and being treated to a bottle of champagne in our room was truly the best way to start our vacation.

Dear Amanda, My husband and I really appreciate the way you went above and beyond to make our son's 21st birthday celebration in Vegas in May 2023 an unforgettable one! Since our son, his brother and their two cousins had never been to Vegas, your suggestions regarding hotels, restaurants as well as iconic Vegas sites, not to be missed, were very helpful. In addition, you really worked with my husband and I on developing a travel package that worked within our price point. The fact that our son's hotel accommodations at The Cosmopolitan were upgraded by you to a beautiful penthouse with stunning views of the Vegas strip, was certainly the icing on the cake for our son and his family members!! They will be discussing their trip to Vegas for years to come and it is all thanks to you and your hard work and dedication. I would highly recommend your travel services to family and friends. Thank you so much!!
