My Background

My history with the travel industry stretches back to high school, when I enjoyed learning about geography and how many exciting places there were in the world.  I then decided to pursue planning travel for others to these exciting destinations.  I have been in the industry for over 25 years and I enjoy creating trips that are more wonderful than clients ever expected.  I go out of my way to find out details about the destinations I visit to be able to provide details that can't be found on the internet.  My continued education and travels continue to help me to better be able to assist my clients in planning the perfect travel experience for them along with listening to the details that are important them.  I know what a gift it is to be able to visit the places you have been dreaming about and it would be my pleasure to guide you towards creating the moments you will remember forever!

Wonderful family vacation

Lisa started with my ideas for a family winter get-away with my husband and young-adult children and arranged an awesome trip for us. She paid close attention to our interests and provided superb recommendations. All the arrangements were great, and when the airport transfer had a glitch, Lisa immediately made it right. So happy we found Lisa; can't wait for our next trip!

Awesome Lisa Torgerson - India 2017

By: K.Bueso

Working with Lisa was great. Lisa was prompt from the day I sent the initial inquiry to the point where I needed to make changes to our itinerary. Planning for this trip was a surprise for my wife and it was traveling to India. Lisa was excellent at making recommendations and coming up with an itinerary. The itinerary included several activities based on very brief conversations I had with her. Lisa is very knowledgeable about the recommendations made. Lisa insisted in upgraded hotel accommodations and I am so glad she did. The hotel accommodations were excellent. Lisa also provided frequent updates on the itinerary if need be. Lisa was also prompt at responding inquiries we had after we had a set itinerary; she was prompt at reaching out to her contacts regarding specific questions we had. The trip was memorable for us and Lisa played a huge role in making the trip possible. Both my wife and I are extremely grateful for Lisa's help.

Not Recommended

Details overlooked

By: Marty

Reviewed on: 24 Apr 2017

Primary purpose of our trip was to visit my daughter who was studying abroad for a semester in London. This was discussed with Lisa. I told her which hotel my daughter suggested we stay in London. That was apparently not on there list, but she said we would be good at The Queens Gate Hotel. Wrong. Turned a twenty minute train ride for my daughter into forty with a long walk from underground to hotel. I would not recommend the Queens Gate Hotel period as the management of it is sub par. Lisa booked us with CIE in Ireland. A number of details regarding timing and thereby the ability to see various venues were lost. Generally not happy with how things worked out, expectations not met due to failures of the travel plan. Ireland was beautiful and that and being able to see my daughter saved the vacation.

Girls Trip


Reviewed on: 29 Jul 2017

Lisa is great. She is very knowledgable about the resorts in Mexico. My husband and I have never met her in person, however she has planned about 5 trips for us and has never steered us wrong. She has listened to all of our interests and has recommended based on that. This past trip was a girls trip and Lisa is always very helpful in planning!

Excellent Service/Excellent Cruise


Reviewed on: 14 Aug 2017

Lisa was attentive to our needs, really listened to what we were looking for and found the perfect cruise line to meet those needs. She answered phone calls and emails quickly and never seemed to mind how many questions we had. She helped with every detail and even called on the weekend when she had information. If we travel again she would be the first person we would call to help us.

Alaskan Cruise and pre-cruise tours

By: Gatz and Kay

Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

Lisa was very helpful to a pair of cruise novices. The dining and drink packages could have been explained with a little more detail because we were completely unaware of the available options. Having said that, things Lisa selected worked out extremely well.

Lisa has helped me plan vacations for over 12 years, both for domestic as well as international travel. She has been "right on target" with each and every suggestion along the way.

Was good....however I think cruise choices were limited....did not like our ship....everything else, except check in at one hotel along with one of our tours, (not sending a pick up) was perfect! Just didn't like our ship...tooo stuffy....not friendly was awful! ( They never could get what I wanted!). Also paid for concierge service for room and did not feel we received it!! Definitely not worth the extra money!!

This will be the second time working with Lisa planning a trip. I’m impressed with the way she plans and give you options for your trip with just a few ideas you give her. I have never been disappointed with my air travel, or my accommodations. Thank you for making our 25th anniversary trip the best!

Trans-Atlantic trip

She was extremely helpful and did everything asked and then some. This trip was originally on a different cruise but when they changed the itinerary I asked to get out of my non-refundable deposit and keep all my benefits on a new cruise which she made happen.

Lisa helped me plan my stay at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun for my friends wedding. I had to amend the reservation several times: adding an extra person, exchanging for a larger room. Lisa made it easy and was a pleasure to work with!
