After 16 years working in the travel industry and talking to many of you great folks, I have decided to open my own travel agency to better serve my clients.
Guide Me Away is in business since 2016!
I specialize in all-inclusive vacations, honeymoon vacations, groups and corporate travel. I of course can be your travel resource outside of these areas as well.
I’m a CTC certified agent and regularly attend tradeshows for travel agents to continually expand my knowledge of new products and places and create connections with suppliers and managers. These personal connections I have developed over the years allows me to create extra special vacations for my clients with perks that help your dollars go far. This includes: room upgrades, Special requests, and amazing prices that you can’t find online.
People ask me why it’s better to book with a travel expert. I believe, like many things in life, you can do it yourself; the question to ask, is how do you value your time? You can spend hours searching for flights and looking at thousands of hotels, or you can be with your family or take a yoga class while I save you time and take care of you personally. And at the end of the day, we have all heard or experienced travel horror stories that result with hours on hold with an airline or travel website when you should be enjoying your hard earned vacation. With me, you limit your frustrations – No more waiting on hold, no more getting someone new on the phone every time, no hang ups or dropped calls.
I am not selling a product. I’m selling a feeling, I am selling trust, I am selling a relationship.
If you are looking for a reliable, experienced agent who will go the extra step for you, I’m your agent.
Please keep me in mind as you look to book your next vacation and pass on my name to your contacts.
Thank you for your attention, friendship, and business! I look forward to working with you!
My childlike curiosity for exploring the world has led me to live with host families, study and volunteer in places like England, Vietnam and Nepal. I started my work in the tourism industry by creating customized itineraries for travelers of all types, ranging from honeymooners to young families and solo travelers.
Some of my favourite experiences include celebrating the Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, hiking an active volcano in Guatemala and gorging on creamy gelato all over Italy.
I bring to Guide Me Away a wealth of on-the-ground experience and the passion to help people explore the globe.
I was born and raised in the Middle East and moved to Vancouver, Canada about a decade ago.
I have always enjoyed traveling, exploring new places, and going back to familiar places.
At any given point, I’m either traveling, getting ready for a trip, or planning my next one!
Excited to connect with new people, make your next adventure happen, and hear all about it after! :)
I am originally from Mexico City, Mexico I’ve been fortunate in my adventures and travel.
As a child I was able to get to know several cities and states in Mexico.
I grew up in “Colorful” Colorado and there learned to ski, mountain bike and many other outdoor activities.
I’ve been able to visit a lot of states within the United States and have traveled to Spain, Portugal, Costa Rica, France and Greece and most recently Mexico City and Honduras.
Hoping to expand that now that travel is safe once again. I am excited to help others achieve their travel dreams as I continue to achieve mine alongside my wife. We enjoy traveling for concerts to visit friends and family.
We are lucky to have the ability to travel as my wife is a travel nurse and we are currently in San Francisco, California our home base in Seattle, Washington and we have happily called it home for the last ten years. Following our adventurous hearts and exploring as much as possible, hope to be able to assist you in the same.
I have been in the customer service/ sales industry for the past 8 years. I have an educational background in Marketing and political science with a major in legal studies. I also have a certification of public relations.
Now, I focus on my passion which is travelling and helping people travel. I love seeing new places and exploring different culture and food! Outside of work, I enjoy fishing, camping, hiking and finding hidden good restaurants.
