San Diego, California Travel Agent

Why You Need an Expert

I have spent my career in the tourism industry. Prior to starting Outdoor Travel Adventures in 1996, I spent 15 years with British Airways, holding a variety of positions in sales, marketing and strategic planning.

I founded OTA to focus on my passion for Australia/New Zealand/South Pacific niche travel. Today, we are widely respected by national tourism boards, airlines and worldwide operators. I have also been featured as an industry expert on CNN and various other news channels.

Outstanding in every way!

Reviewed By Vicki N - San Diego, CA | Traveled to Antarctica ~ Antarctica
For the second time, my friends and I used Outdoor Travel Adventures to plan trips of a lifetime. The first was in October of 2015 and it included 3 weeks in Australia. Roseann Iovine made sure everything was perfect from our itinerary to our accommodations, flights, etc. Outstanding in every way! Outstanding and highly highly recommended. We recently had Roseann plan an amazing adventure cruise to Antarctica. Thank you Outdoor Travel Adventures for making our dreams come true!

Roseann is a top-shelf New Zealand agent

Reviewed By Sylvia R - San Diego, CA | Traveled to New Zealand ~ Australia & New Zealand
Found OTA and Roseann through 100% New Zealand site, not knowing the agency was a shot in the dark. I sent a information request and received an immediate reply. Roseann set up a fantastic itinerary, I couldn't have designed it better myself. We visited Auckland then tubing Waitmo Caves which were amazing, we rafted class 5 waterfalls, then to Te Puia mineral springs and dinner show, Nelson for Kayaking, then to Christchurch which is like an outdoor art gallery you can see everything on foot, ending in Queenstown for an exciting jet boat ride, lots of beautiful hiking and closed out on the zip line eco-tour. Incredible, fantastic, amazing, perfect! If you are looking for a hassle free itinerary where sky is the limit, Roseann is a top shelf agent.

Wonderful Australia Trip Planning

Reviewed By Greg G. - San Diego | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
My wife and I are very accomplished travelers and planners. So for our 30th anniversary, we started with our usual self-planning, when we came across Outdoor Travel Adventures. After our first contact with Roseann and her obvious breadth of knowledge, we turned all the planning over to her. What a great decision! She took the time to find out how we like to travel and gave us numerous choices. Her planning was top-notch and her choice of service providers were professional, courteous and ON TIME. Attention to detail was evident from the moment we arrived at the airport. We were repeateddly greeted with a “happy anniversary” and a complete itinerary packet was given to us at our first hotel. Each day of the trip was so well put together and wonderful that our running joke was ‘how is Roseann going to top this?’ She always managed to do so, even pulling off my special request to have a Platypus interaction. We are extremely pleased and plan on using their services in the future.

10 years with Roseann and team

Reviewed By Treven H. - San Diego, CA | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Outdoor Travel Adventures (OTA) deserves every bit of the 5-star rating. My husband and I have booked multiple trips over the last 10 years with Roseann and team. We've worked with other tour companies, but OTA sets THE standard for outdoor travel. Everyone there is friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable.
