My Background

My love of travel began with long family road trips, but my eyes were really opened to the world when I spent a college summer in Italy. I knew I had to see more. After planning all the family vacations for years, I realized I could do the same for others. I wanted to share my passion for travel and encourage them to see the world.

I love the planning phase of a vacation. I enjoy really getting to know my clients and what they are looking for and making it happen for them. It is a bit like a puzzle I have to solve. It is also incredibly rewarding to have clients return from their trip happy and excited to tell you all about it.

My strength is in the details. I am very organized and meticulous in my planning. I also really listen to what my client wants so I can plan their perfect trip, not someone else’s version of it. Everyone deserves a personalized, memorable vacation.

Great family trip

By: DLinBham

Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2014

We were looking for somewhere different to go on our family vacation, only had a month to go before the time we'd set aside, so we called a travel agent. After listening to our likes, dislikes and previous experiences, Kim had several suggestions, and we settled on Puerto Rico. After a little back and forth on the itinerary, we were able to come up with a great schedule that included time to relax and time for adventure, some on our own and some via organized tours. We hiked in the rain forest, wandered around old San Juan, and took a great trip out to Culebra to visit one of the world's best beaches. We were super busy leading up to the trip and were able to handle almost everything by email with a couple of phone calls, which was great for us. As my daughter said, it was the "best trip ever!" We will definitely use Kim again.

Awesome help!


Reviewed on: 10 Apr 2015

Kimberly was a huge help as we planned our spring break trip. We weren't sure where we wanted to go, so we gave her a few places on our consideration list and she gave us just enough on each one to help us narrow down the choices. We chose to go to San Diego. Never having been, she researched options for things to do and helped evaluate accommodation options. I highly recommend Kimberly for her passion, enthusiasm, professionalism and follow through.

Beat Vacation of my LIFE! (So far😜)

By: K.C.

Reviewed on: 19 Aug 2017

Our recent vacation to El Dorado Maroma, Mexico was planned start to finish by Kimberly Kiel...and it was flawless! This was the second trip we have taken with Kimberly's guidance, and we weren't even home yet before we asked her to help us plan a third adventure! She truly takes the time to completely understand the experiences you want to have on your vacation. For example, she knew from our previous trip that we loved great food, an amazing beach, and unique excursions...and she knocked it out of the park when suggesting that we go to El Dorado Maroma on the breath-taking Maroma Beach. The food was first rate, service unparalleled, the beach and the ocean were astounding, and we even got to ride CAMELS on the beach and play with starfish! Kimberly's attention to detail, professionalism, and understanding of what her clients want will keep us booking travel with her for a long long time! Don't wait! Life is short! Call her now!

Kimberly Kiel never disappoints!

By: KC

Reviewed on: 06 Feb 2018

Our recent vacation to Puerto Morelos (near Cancún) was just what the Dr. ordered! This was our THIRD vacation planned by Kimberly, and it most certainly won’t be our last! Just as we were feeling over-worked and freezing cold in the the U.S., she found us a beautiful resort, VIP status, and the the sunshine and relaxation just fell into place. One of the many reasons I love working with Kimberly is that she always seems to find something really special for us to do! This trip, we swam with giant sea turtles in Tulum! Truly an unforgettable experience! If you are looking for someone to help you plan a trip who truly takes your wants and needs to heart, Kimberly is your girl! She’s professional, friendly, knowledgeable, prompt, and just really great at what she does!

Ireland Trip

Kimberly put together an awesome trip for us that took us from city to beach to parks to thatched roofs to cliffs. The food was delicious, the hotels were grand, amenities galore, excellent staff. A little hiccup in the beginning but Kimberly was with us all the way. I have always liked working with Kimberly and will continue to do so for a very long time. She has been great to work with over the last few years.

Kimberly is fabulous! She has helped me on several occasions with specifically what we need. Some Advisors try to sell you into their agendas, but she is not like that and works to meet your travel needs.
