My Background

I enjoy serving clients and their families with the utmost discretion and confidentiality. I have a reputation for creating innovative and immersive trips. I am a destination expert and have relationships with travel suppliers all over the world.

My passion for travel started as a young child, my mother was a flight attendant for TWA. My father loved road trips in the car and on his Harley Davidson motorcycle with me riding in the back enjoying the breeze. I have a passion for making my clients dream vacations come true, I love customizing vacations for each client. I know that vacation time is valuable and precious; with that knowledge I strive to make each trip seamless and memorable.

Whether your travels take you to a luxury cave in Cappadocia or to the allure of the Azores, inbox me for all your travel needs.

Outstanding Again

Reviewed on: 01 Apr 2017

Krista is the Best. Always ready and willing to help, as well as offers tips for things to do.

Found the Best

By: Santa & Mrs C

Reviewed on: 09 Jun 2017

Krista is GREAT to work with, she found us great shore excursions that met our needs outside of RCCL when we could not find what we wanted through RCCL. When our flight was delayed, as soon as we turned our phone off airplane mode, the text came in to us to call the after hours desk. Like she was following us every step of our journey. A pleasure to work with.

Krista's outstanding service

By: Thrilled

Reviewed on: 07 Oct 2017

Krista was recommended by a good friend who also told us about the FCW barge trip... Krista thank you for all your help in getting us set up for the Burgundy FCW barge cruise... a trip of a lifetime. Also thank you for the beautiful bouquet of flowers that greeted us in our room... it was like a warm hug from you. I'm a seasoned traveler so used to making our own arrangements but it was a joy to work with Krista who always stayed on top and informed about our barge adventure.

Krista is always very responsive our emails, usually getting back to us same day. Sometimes we plan trips that are months away and sometimes we book trips last minute and I am always very thankful to have her looking out for our travel needs. Krista is the best!

Jamaica = Great time!

By: Alex

Reviewed on: 22 Nov 2017

Krista and Megan made my trip to Jamaica very easy to plan. I gave them all the details about what I wanted to experience and when I wanted to leave. I simply let them do their thing and before I knew it my trip was planned. Can't get any easier than that! Definitely will be going back and will only work with Balboa Vacations.

Super cruise expert

By: Cookie

Reviewed on: 21 Mar 2018

We asked Krista to pick our next cruise 🚢 and knew we were in good hands. She kit a home run and knocked it out of the park. Great suite itinerary and ship. Thank you again for not steering us wrong. You need an agent to do right by you. Krista Betts is that person.

I absolutely adore working with Krista. She is amazing - helpful, responsive, pleasant, and a million other positive adjectives. She has never steered me wrong with her recommendations and always offers several different options, including things I had not even considered, in helping plan my trips.
