My Background

From exotic destinations to a nearby weekend getaway life is enriched from these experiences, and I confidently plan my clients’ adventures with attention to detail to ensure you maximize these precious moments. A passion for cultural exploration, natural discovery, and adventure travel is based on a relentless pursuit of a Mark Twain quote, “20 years from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do that the ones you did. Throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, feel the trade winds in your sails.” With a background in the travel industry since 1995 and a master’s degree in International Relations from Harvard I have an edge in creating insightful touches in your itinerary, will provide detailed analysis for your journey, and efficiently cover every detail ensuring you a more enjoyable travel experience. I offer long-term planning assistance to reach the destinations on your bucket list with collaborative conversations every journey is truly tailor made.

Outstanding service

By: Janet99

Christy Welch was an extraordinary travel agent for our trip to Italy. The priorities we wanted on this trip were considered and satisfied with the Travcoa Tour. When we had questions about transfers at airports, carry-on luggage and other concerns, she helped us immediately. We are very grateful for her attention to our travel requests and will contact Christy to plan future trips. A magnifico travel experience! Tom and Janet Johnson

good job-well done

Christy coordinated, and booked, the intricate and more difficult portions of a trip we had planned and partially booked before we knew her.Matching up our frequent flyer booked flights to and from Paris with rail connections from Paris to Nuremberg via Stuttgart. Everything went as she told us it would making a long rail trip into a pleasant sight seeing opportunity. On the return trip she got us safely from Budapest to Paris via Air France and an overnight at the Hilton at CDG to dovetail perfectly with our non stop back to Seattle on Delta Based on her helpfulness and flawless execution on this trip we had no hesitation booking a longer Asian trip through Christy and Stellar travel for november 2016. Many thanks Christy....... Good job-well done

Christy Welch did a great job offering us 3 choices and allowing us to choose the itinerary that fit our needs. She gave great advice regarding layovers and answered any questions we had immediately. We also had the option to review our itinerary before she finalized everything, making sure all was correct.

Best Travel Agent Ever

Christy did an amazing job making travel arrangements as well the reservations at the resort for our son's destination wedding in Cancun. She responded to all problems and questions in a quick and professional manner. I am sure this was not easy since there was a large number of people she was working with. We look forward to working with her again. Kudos to Christy.

New York excursion

By: Peggy46

Reviewed on: 10 Oct 2016

We could not have had such a fun trip without Christy's help! We bogged down on our planning time, and she helped organize things to do by general geography, found choices for those pricey NYC hotels, and offered more help for planning that we didn't need. We loved the location of The Quin. They must have the quietest rooms! We were confused that we didn't get the usual day-before boarding pass reminders directly from Delta, at either end, so we wondered if that was because she had booked for us?

Train travel throughout Northern Italy

It was a pleasure to work with Christy! I only wish we were able to use her skills more extensively, as we had complications which prevented her from booking our airfare and lodging. Christy was consistently knowledgeable about our destination, and hung in there when we made several major changes. I will contact Christy for our next trip!
