Scottsdale, Arizona Travel Agent

Customized Immersive and Experiential Travel

I have traveled extensively around the world and pride myself on tailoring trips to suit the interests of my clients. I especially enjoy finding fun ways to immerse people in the culture and environment of the places they visit, whether it is bicycling through Tuscany and stopping for lunch at a farm or coming eye to eye with a penguin on a beach in Antarctica.

My passion for travel was ignited by a world history teacher in high school who brought out a map of the world and talked about different cultures. My eyes went wide with wonder. I loved that class so much and remember thinking that whatever I did in life would have to involve counseling people and seeing the world. I did not know there was a job where you could do both, but now, as a travel agent, I am doing just that.

While getting my psychology degree, I worked as a secretary in a small travel agency. Later, after deciding that being a travel agent was my calling, I got a job at American Express Travel where I planned high-end trips for their top tier Platinum and Centurion cardholders.

My focus on luxury travel continues at Protravel, where I have access to wonderful value-added VIP amenities for my clients. These might include complimentary early check-in and late check-out, breakfasts and space-available upgrades, as well as food and spa credits at many top hotels and cruise lines. Protravel also offers special rates on business and first class air.

As a travel advisor, one of the key aspects of my job is taking the time to understand what you are really looking for and matching you with the right experience. For example, for people seeking to explore a lot in places in one trip, a small ship or river cruise is often the best option because you are not wasting time on planes and transfers. Plus, I look at every traveler in your group to make sure that everyone, from the youngest child to the oldest, is considered as I plan the itinerary.  

I am also there for you when things do not go to plan due to weather, strikes or other issues. My close relationships with suppliers mean there is always someone nearby who can sort things out.

The world is there for you to discover and I would love to help you enjoy the best it has to offer.

The Joy of New Zealand

My first night in New Zealand, I locked my door and my host said, “Feel free to lock your door, but we are trustworthy. You’ll find New Zealanders are not like the rest of the world.” She was right. There is almost no crime and perhaps that trust factor explains why... Read more from my The Joy of New Zealand story.

Magical Holiday

Reviewed By Egans - Chicago | Traveled to Austria ~ Europe
Working with Dawn is like being in the hands of a wizard ,one with amazing skills that has helped my husband and I plan over half a dozen travel adventures. Dawn takes the time to listen, to know who we are and what we enjoy. She takes care of every detail, on our recent trip to explore the European Christmas markets she knew my husband had a bad back and arranged for a wonderful transport, the driver even carried the bags onto the train.
Her selections of hotels are exquisite , centrally located with impeccable service. We never go online to preview the place, just shows how much we trust her. Dawn will offer an array of tours, never pushy but to ensure you don't miss out. We are not big tour peeps, but our Sound of Music tour was fabulous! We had to cancel our train and Dawn was readily available to assist as well as make sure we received our refund. Once home she calls to check up on us.
Dawn is not only a travel pro she is an authentic person who genuinely cares!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Honeymoon under African skies

Reviewed By Anna - Chicago, IL | Traveled to South Africa ~ Africa
Dawn was a dream to work with. From the moment she found out we were looking to plan our Honeymoon to Mauritius and South Africa, she made the whole experience so incredibly special and wanted to make sure this was a trip of a lifetime for us. She took great care to discover what we were looking for in our trip, allowing us to customize the trip so that it fit our travel style and we were able to squeeze in the items that mattered most. We were doing this all last minute too and she didn't even blink an eye. When our trip got underway, every detail was so carefully thought out that we could sit back and relax from start to finish. Thanks for everything Dawn :)
