My Background

My first overseas travel experience was as part of a university cultural exchange to Moscow, Leningrad, and Kiev in the Soviet Union, and my career in travel began. I have been on this path of traveling and learning for over four decades.

I believe that travel teaches us about the past and provides a path to understanding other cultures, which is necessary to make a better future. It also shows us that there is beauty and majesty in nature everywhere. I have been a teacher and a trainer within the travel industry and consider myself a lifelong learner. Travel provides wow moments at every turn – from drifting over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon to standing in front of the library of Ephesus. I love seeing how things change over time.

My Destination Specialties: I’m a trained historian in Russian history and Slavic literature, and I love to explore new places and revisit favorite haunts. My other specialties include France, Spain, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia. I love cruising, especially transatlantic crossings: not much compares to watching the ocean and being at one with the sea.

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED

NEVER HAS NANCY POWERS FAILED TO AMAZE ME WITH HER TRAVEL KNOWLEDGE, EXPERTISE AND ALWAYS EXCITING TRIP SUGGESTIONS. MY RECENT ADVENTURE TOOK ME TO HONG KONG FOR AN INTRODUCTION TO ITS PROPLE, CULTURE, HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY. MY ITINERARY INCLUDED LOCAL MARKETS OF EVERY TYPE, TEMPLES, NEW AND OLD ARCHITECTURE, BRIDGES AND PARKS. SHE ENSURED THAT MY HK STAY INCLUDED TIME FOR R&R. FRANKLY, I AM CERTAIN THAT I COULD NEVER FIND A MORE COMPETENT AGENT TO GUIDE ME THROUGHOUT THE GLOBE.

FRANKLY, NANCY HAS NEVER STEERED ME WRONG FOR AND AND ALL OF MY TRIPS. SHE IS TRULY A JEWEL TO WORK WITH AND I HAVE THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR HER AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND AS A PROFESSIONAL. VIRTUOSO SHOULD BE PROUD TO HAVE NANCY ON THE TEAM.

TERRIFIC JORDAN ADVENTURE

By: SUSAN


Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2016

MY JORDAN ADVENTURE WAS EDUCATIONAL, INSIGHTFUL, AND EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. NANCY POWERS' PRE-TRIP ADVICE WAS 'SPOT-ON'. MY TRIP HIGHLIGHT WAS PETRA DISCOVERING ITS ORIGIN, HISTORY, VIEWING THE CAVES STILL INHABITED BY SOME OF THE BEDOUIN TRIBE MEMBERS TODAY. THE STORY OF MARGUERITE VAN GELDERMALSEN MARRIED TO A BEDOUIN IS MORE THAN FASCINATING. SECOND HIGHLIGHT IS MY DEAD SEA EXPERIENCE. IF POSSIBLE, I HOPE TO RETURN TO BOTH OF THESE AREAS.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL AND PERFECT TRAVEL GUIDANCE

NANCY POWERS HAS NEVER LET ME DOWN RELATING TO CHOOSING TRAVEL DESTINATIONS AND NEW ADVENTURES. SHE EXCELS IN OBTAINING UNIQUE AND HIGH VALUE TRAVEL IDEAS, PRESENTING THE OPTIONS TO ME, SPENDING TIME TO DISCUSS AND EVALUATE WITH ME IN ORDER TO MAKE A FINAL CHOICE. FRANKLY, I CANNOT IMAGINE PLANNING A TOUR, AN ADVENTURE, OR ANY TRAVEL WITHOUT NANCY.
