My Background

Tish Kelly is in the business of making her clients’ travel dreams come true, and she’s been doing it for over 20 years. 

Where Tish shines is her proven ability to earn the trust of the people she serves. There’s a great deal of responsibility involved in planning a vacation for someone else. From the grand plan to the tiniest detail, everything matters – but, most of all, she’s helping people spend money they’ve saved for one very special occasion, and, she says, “I take that very seriously.” 

Trust is something Tish has cultivated for many years. A former swimming teacher and diving enthusiast, she has planned countless dive trips all over the world. This passion lead to her involvement in the founding of the National Aquarium in Baltimore where she was a docent for over 18 years. During those years she was also "Travel Agent to the Animal Stars," planning many animal observation and collecting trips, including ones filmed by National Geographic. 

Tish believes in creating a comfortable environment so her clients stay calm, cheerful and excited about their vacation. Based on her repeat clientele, Tish Kelly is truly making a difference as a leisure travel expert. 

Tish’s Favorite Childhood Travel Memory

“I’ve been to some of the most beautiful spots on Earth, but we’ve got a gorgeous country, too. Summers on Chesapeake Bay are unforgettable memories.”

Tish Kelly was very helpful in the planning for my recent New Years vacation in Cancun. She arranged the air, transfers and hotel. It is a pleasure to have a professional take care of these matters for me.

Our Viking River Cruise from Paris to Normandy went very smoothly, thanks to Tish Kelly. She secured us a room with a French balcony, and it was perfect. Tish knows her cruises. Her advice was spot-on. She helped us every step of the way and made our trip free of stress and uncertainty. Tish is professional and knowledgeable. Viking was very organized and took care of our every need. A great trip all the way around.

Tish Kelly was so instrumental in planning a wonderful vacation for me and those in my party. She was maticulous as far as handling all the details of the trip (plane reservations, getting our payments in on time, help at each gate for those in my party needing a wheelchair, cabin location, excursions and the list goes on). I will definitely be asking Tish to help out with my next vacation and would highly recommend her to family and friends. Patient, friendly and knowledgeable are attributes of a travel agent I will go back to again and again. I really can't thank her enough for all of her help!!!

Tish was an advisor who responded with an all-inclusive tour package that met all my desires. Tish took down places that I wanted to see and she was able to mold them all into one wonderful vacation. All our interactions were positive! She is an Australian expert!

Not happy

She said one thing and reserved another. This is not the first time and you would think I'd have learned the first time but I decided to give her another chance. Bottom line: don't take her at her word. Read EVERY WORD OF THE DOCUMENTS. I had a better price, better rooms, better all around deal when I found everything myself. She pushed the price match guarantee and then couldn't match it. She had issues getting the reservations entered and then because I took her at her word, we ended up with much less than expected. Unfortunately, I will not use her services again.
