My Background

As a double major in Communication and German Studies, it is obvious that I enjoy people and am extremely interested in foreign cultures. After graduating with these degrees in 2013, I lived in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany for a year and a half. I worked as a server, but I traveled during all of my time off. I made it to popular destinations in Western Europe and as far as Morocco and Thailand.

This incredible experience sparked my passion for travel, and I joined Platinum Travel in October of 2015 in order to turn this passion into a career. I am happy to be a part of Platinum Travel and therefore Virtuoso, so I can continue exploring the world and assisting our clients to do the same. From a relaxing week on a beach in the Caribbean or Greece to a two week, high-energy exploration of Europe or Thailand - I am happy to share my experiences and create an incredible experience for each and every client.

Happy to Learn About G Adventures

By: AliDoodle

Reviewed on: 05 May 2016

G Adventures, booked through Platinum Travel, provided just the right amount of structure and guidance for our mother/son trip to Costa Rica. We had plenty to do, good people to do it with (a troop of 15 on our tour), and reasonably comfortable accommodations. I would use G Adventures again if I were planning a basic trip anywhere in the world.

Awesome Trip!

By: Jeff

Candace recently helped plan our Honeymoon. It was our first time traveling out of the country so we wanted some help to make sure the trip was exactly what we wanted. Candace spent time with us reviewing what we were looking for and then planning a trip that met our needs. She was prompt with email follow up and overall great to work with. Thanks for the help Candace!

Excellent friendly thorough service

Candace did a great job planning our vacation. She was attentive to our every need and very thorough in making sure every detail was planned according to our schedule. She was always available whenever we had a question, we even contacted her while on vacation and she answered us promptly. She had all of our paperwork ready for pickup and took time to explain everything to us before we left and encouraged us to contact her with any questions we might have. We will definitely be using Candace again when planning another vacation and would highly recommend her.

Candace always responded quickly to all our questions and concerns. It was our fist time using an agent for traveling and our first time going all inclusive and out of the country. She made us feel confident in all our firsts.

Made my life easy

By: Peggy

Reviewed on: 23 Aug 2016

We had six people and lots of timing issues. We wanted a great trip to Alaska and we got it! Candace worked around all of this beautifully every time we changed something she was happy to help. I tried to do this trip on my own but it was too complicated and time consuming. Candace found better times and prices than I could find. We are planning a trip to Europe next summer and I will absolutely use Candace again.

A Wonderful, Trusted Advisor

By: Louisville Travel Novice

Reviewed on: 26 Oct 2016

I'm so grateful to have met Candace. My partner and I were married earlier this month, and with only a few weeks' notice, Candace was able to help me plan a Hawaiian honeymoon that we'll never forget. Neither he nor I are experienced travelers, so it was so comforting to have Candace's guidance to help us have an outstanding ten days in paradise!

Took care of everything

By: bigbluegdud

Candace was a huge help when it came to all the steps for getting our trip planned! She is very organized and extremely timely with her responses to our questions. I would not have wanted to coordinate our big trip to Punta Cana without her involvement. I will recommend her very highly to my family, friends, and co-workers.

Candace is a wonderful travel advisor, that is always on top of things. I've never had an issue with her during the time I've been using her services!

My wife and I have had the best trips and experiences of our lives over the past going on three years running, because of her expert recommendations, and knowledgeable advise! When it comes to taking big time trips and creating wonderful memories, we expect nothing but the best, and I am so glad that we have met the best!

Best Vacation Ever!

Reviewed on: 24 Jun 2017

Candace was invaluable to the sucess of our trip to St. Croix, USVI, to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. We told her what we were looking at, what we hoped to book, and she did all the work. She was quick with her responses and answered all our questions, and made the whole process easy. Candace kept us up to date on all of our arrangements and communicated with a phone call or email. I will recommend Candace to anyone that needs a great travel agent to help them find what they are looking for, and will use her agency again in the future.

We could not have been happier with our Honeymoon planned by Candace. She met with us several times before we departed and explained everything in detail. From the time we landed in Spain until the time we departed was just as she had planned for us. The Car Service was always 30 min early, professionally dressed, cars clean and polite. The hotels and staff were wonderful and just as she had described. We had no problem with the Hop on/Hop off bus tours as well. We will definitely book with her again! Thanks for helping to make our honeymoon special!

Candace Dupps was a terrific travel advisor, she listened to our interests and wants. More importantly Candace was able to go above and beyond for our trip, we didn't have one hiccup the whole trip it went like clockwork! Our transfers, hotels, tours were perfect! We never felt rushed, the people were always polite, very helpful and knowledgeable. Candace was so patient with us we changed out itinerary many times as well as flight schedule, nothing ever seemed to be a problem. Candace scheduled our time in each of the cities perfectly so that there was a good balance between tours and private time. We can't thank her enough and will be using her again as well as our friends!

All was well!

Great!! Candace took the time to respond to the many questions that we had. She answered all emails promptly. Her manner was always polite and friendly. Candace offered good/ helpful advice on some things we were not familiar with --- for example, the location of the best stateroom on the ship. Everything turned out as planned, and we never had the worry that something would not work out, or that there might be a miscommunication some where along the line. We booked 2 Ocean Cruises with Candace, and would definitely plan future trips with her.
