My Background

Travel was a regular topic of discussion at my family table and so my sense of wanderlust was inevitable. As I grew older, I learned to recognize that everyone prioritizes money differently and I put a heavy personal interest in traveling frequently, farther, and well. My decision to pursue this passion full time was one of the best moves I ever made. Every job has its pros and cons, but at the end of the day, I never feel like I’m at work.

I plan travel for my clients the same way I plan for myself: detail-oriented with a focus on food, wine, and unique experiences. Some of my favorite travel experiences have been launching a paper lantern during the Loi Krathong Festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand on my honeymoon, listening to “Ave Maria” reverberate off the St. Lawrence River from the top deck aboard the Crystal Symphony, and ditching the crowds at Versailles to go bike riding in the gardens with a bottle of champagne. I’ve loved playing Gin Rummy on the pebble beaches of Cassis, eating my way through southern Spain, and watching the sunset from the top of a temple in Tikal, Guatemala. I consider myself to be an “active” traveler, provided that there is a good meal & good bottle of wine at the end of my adventure.

In addition to planning travel for my group of clients, I am also the Strategic Manager for Century. My role is to make sure our advisors are well prepared & well equipped to be the best in our business. I’d love to talk to you about your travel plans, our business, and helping you find the right fit-advisor for your needs!

Christie did an outstanding job as always. The hotel she recommended was exactly what we were looking for and in the perfect location. She is always very thorough and extremely detailed and I would not use anyone to help planning my trips!

Lovely, and easy to work with

Christie fit our needs perfectly.  Good advice, and when she didn't know the answer she found out for us quickly!  Great at helping us plan our itinerary, very honest about costs, pros and cons.  I never had to call her - she always called me first to remind me about a detail, or alert me to unfinished business.  As a very busy Mom of three and partner to a workaholic hubby, she was the perfect travel planning partner!  We'll be calling her to plan our next adventure -

Highly recommend

Hong Kong Engagementmoon

By: Bobby


Reviewed on: 23 Feb 2015

What an amazing trip we just had. About two weeks before Valentine's day I decided a spur of the moment trip from Miami to Hong Kong was the perfect time to propose to my girlfriend. We met at an airport gate in person for the first time so what better place?! Christie at Century Travel was one of two people on planet earth that knew of my plans and she helped make it an incredible surprise engagement trip. She successfully navigated the Chinese New Year and found us the perfect hotel with the absolute most stunning view on planet earth. We stayed at the Intercontinental on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. Right on the water and amazing. When we arrived at the airport in HK, a gorgeous car was waiting for us to deliver to the hotel and dinner reservations had already been made. We walked in our room to find champagne, flowers and fruit plus a nice card. You simply can't ask for better service and thoughfulness. This was our second trip through Century and we'll be customers for life!

Excellent service

We can't wait to work with Christie again! Christie gets "it" and executes effectively the first time. Expert counsel on destination selection and recommendations on hotels, restaurants, highlights, etc. were spot on. Most importantly, Christie's comprehensive service was seamless and flawless allowing us to leave the planning and details to Christie with confidence that it would be as we would have it done it ourselves. Our recommendation for an effective and pleasant partner in vacation planning is Christie. Thank you Christie!

Wow! There not words to describe how fabulous a job Christie Carden-York did for us in planning our trip to Europe. The attention to detail is incredible making it very easy for us to sit back and enjoy the sites. First class all the way. She is still taking care of us along the way with any questions we have no matter how small. Thank you Christie! You truly are the best!

Beautiful Villa

By: MJB


Reviewed on: 28 Sep 2015

Great villa in remote, farming community. Looks like an 18th century farm-house, but updated to 2015. Would rate 4 out of 5 stars due to them not being upfront about 800€ in pool heating charges--not a pleasant surprise.

Incredible!

Christie planned our couples getaway to Mexico. From the moment we boarded our flight until the time we left, every detail was absolutely perfect. The resort she suggested was one the best places we've visited, EVER. She made sure our flight, airport transfers, dining reservations and spa appointments were seamless. We will be using her for our future travel without question.

Wonderful Service!

Christie was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I worked with her to plan our honeymoon! Among planning a wedding we decided planning a more elaborate honeymoon at the same time was too much to take on. Christie was recommended to us by a close friend and we have also passed her name on as well! From our initial reach-out through the entire planning process Christie was extremely responsive and able to provide excellent guidance and reference. We spent a week in Moorea and Bora Bora and had the most amazing trip! From the get go we told Christie what we were looking for, tentative activities we wanted to do and our budget and she was able to provide a number of options and help us narrow down our list. From there she executed everything!! It was SO NICE not having to worry about a thing during the planning or during our trip! She made everything so easy and convenient for us and it added another element of relaxation to our trip. We highly recommend Christie!

Had a great time in Venice, Florence, and Positano with the help of Christie's planning! My boyfriend and I were extremely busy leading up to the trip and hardly had any time to do much planning of our own. We pretty much left all of the planning in the hands of Christie and couldn't have been more pleased! She helped us get a steal on round trip airfare! We stayed one night in Venice, 2 in Florence, and 4 in Positano - and that was the perfect balance for us! Christie did a great job of listening to our likes and dislikes and knowing exactly which direction to point us in and letting us know how long to stay in each city. She coordinated every detail down to hotel transfers/pick-ups - which allowed us to just sit back and relax the whole time. Would highly recommend using her - and will certainly be using her again the next time I travel out of the country!

Christie planned our trip to Asheville last weekend, and she made it so incredibly special! From booking the best spa appointments to getting us a reservation at the of the best (and impossible to get into) restaurants in the city, everything was absolutely perfect.

Amazing trip to San Francisco/Napa Valley

Christie helped us to plan an amazing getaway weekend to the West Coast. We had a great couple days exploring San Francisco, on many of Christie’s recommendations. We loved Hotel Zetta. It was a great location and was a fun hotel to stay at. Our favorite part was the amazing resort Christie scored for us in the Napa area. Carneros Resort was wonderfully relaxing and just what we needed! Christie was very responsive and extremely helpful. We can’t wait to work with her again!
