My Background

A high school trip to England, France and Spain changed my perspective on experiencing the world. Travel went from being a luxury to being a necessity for understanding the way others live. Over the years, my expertise has evolved into a specialization with honeymoons and destination weddings. My couples have had many different interests, so I have planned various wonderful experiences throughout the world while always keeping the focus on what each traveler is looking to experience. I enjoy diving into the details of family vacations, anniversary celebrations, or simply a luxury trip to a destination on your bucket list. No matter your reason for traveling ... a birthday lunch at Ladera Resort overlooking the Pitons, a sunrise breakfast in the Vatican Gardens, unique experiences like these are why you should choose an experienced Virtuoso Travel Advisor. The world awaits and I look forward to helping you create your travel dreams.

We had a great experience working with Nikki to plan our Disney vacation. She had answers for all our questions, and some we had not even thought of. She responded to all calls and emails quickly. I could not have had a better experience!

Fabulous first time All Inclusive!!!

By: Tish

Reviewed on: 27 Jun 2018

Nikki was great! I didn't quite realize how great until we actually got on the trip. The details she took care, the choices and options she had ready for us. I was so happy to have chosen Ochos Rios for the Excursions and the distance from our Resort etc to the those were all short trips. The package we received before we left had pretty much everything I didn't know I'd need. Also putting our flights in order so that 4 women 1 in another state could meet half way and that worked smooth. I'll definitely reach out for the next Trip! :)

Flexible and Accommodating!!

By: KG

Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2018

Nikki was wonderful to work with! My husband and I were very indecisive on our honeymoon destination. We went back and forth on our choices and had specific requests. Nikki went above and beyond to help get us the information we needed to decide. Our honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Mexico went so smoothly and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without her help!

Nikki is fantastic! If I have a question, I know I can text her, call her, or email her and she gets back to me really quickly. She’s always up to date on the “hotspots” and what’s the must see in each place. I’ve used Nikki for the last five years and have never had an issue. She makes everything so easy so that planning a vacation is actually a vacation !

Disney World Trip

By: Lisa Fullerton

Reviewed on: 23 Nov 2018

Nikki was a pleasure to work with. She responded to my emails right away and always answered my questions, and I had a lot of them. As I'm not a seasoned traveler, she explained the process of the traveling services, airport details, Disney World park details very well. Nikki took quite a bit of pressure off of myself as I not only had to please one of my clients parents but also my employer who was paying my way. I am very grateful for Nikki's expertise.

Wedding in Punta Cana

By: Denny Kuennen

Reviewed on: 19 Nov 2018

Nikki was awesome to work with! She had all of the travel documentation sent out to us well in advance of our trip so that we could review stuff prior to leaving. The trip itself was flawless. Travel arrangements were perfect and we had no issues with flights or private transfers to and from the resort!! If you do not want to have to worry about anything for an all inclusive trip, book with Nikki!!

wedding :Punta Cana, Majestic Review

By: Nichole S.

Reviewed on: 20 Nov 2018

Wow, where do I start. I started working with Nikki over a year ago when I started looking into wedding venues for more than 40 people. She listened to exactly what I wanted and was super friendly !She didn’t just copy and paste from the internet as other agents did. She sent me a good variety of resorts and also answered my wedding concerns and calmed my nerves about my decisions. I was so happy about my decision with Majestic Resorts and Delta Vacations, we also had an amazing time with the Catamaran through them with my entire party when we got there ! Travel was easy, and safe, and smooth, and she checked up with me before we left for any last minute questions as well as after our flight hom. Will definitely use her again, thank you Nikki. Oh and by the way my wedding was amazing, would highly recommend destination wedding there !

Amazing advisor, would recommend!!

By: Robin

Reviewed on: 13 Dec 2018

From start to finish I could not have asked for a more prompt or thorough travel advisor. I had everything by email so quickly and taken care of and then got a great package just before the trip with a hard copy of everything and any other helpful information I may need. It was such a nice addition and great to have to feel I had everything including a travel checklist right there and ready. It even had information on the country included. If you want a worry free trip and planning of one use Nikki! I would always recommend anyone to book with her, you will be happy with the outcome!

Nikki is a great travel agent who listens to what you want and goes above and beyond to give you several options for your relaxing vacation. She helps you narrow down choices of destinations with information on what you can do in the area for fun/educational/cultural activities. Worked with her on several trips and wouldn't go anywhere else; others have commented that we are lucky to have such a caring person helping us. She also watches for the best deals for your money. I'm so happy that we found her several years ago and will continue with her for every trip (so no you can't ever retire!) Keep up the great work Nikki your the best!

Nikki is the BEST!

By: lauriewild

Reviewed on: 22 Apr 2019

I can't express enough how great Nikki has been to work with. This is the second trip we have planned through Nikki and it surpassed all of our expectations. Our first trip booked with Nikki was our first experience out of the country and we were both a little nervous, but Nikki was so amazing with calming our nerves and giving us every detail we needed to know - down to the paint colors on the wall of the airport! After that, we knew Nikki was the best and we had to book our next trip through her. With this last trip, we weren't honestly sure she could top our first experience, but of course, she rocked it! She was great at giving us options and explaining the advantage to each resort and destination. She was so easy to work with and honestly I don't think I'll ever book another vacation without Nikki. She makes sure everything is taken care of and provides the best advice and planning.

Highly Recommend Nikki

By: Lisa N

Reviewed on: 19 Apr 2019

Nikki was amazing to work with, in planning our 20th anniversary trip to London and Paris! She took our general ideas and priorities for our trip, and came up with a sample itinerary, then worked with us to make changes or additions based on our preferences. She was very knowledgable about our trip locations and was able to answer all of our questions in a timely manner. While on our trip, everything went so smoothly with our reservations - the online itinerary and paper copies of our vouchers organized by day were a great help. The tours she booked for us were wonderful, with excellent tour guides. We contacted Nikki once while on our trip, concerning an issue with our hotel charging us for breakfast that should've been included with a promotional offer. She contacted the vendor who contacted the hotel and got it cleared up right away, with no hassle on our end. I highly recommend Nikki, and would use her again when we plan our next big trip.

Another great pkg by Nikki!

By: Tish

Reviewed on: 23 Sep 2019

I have referred Nikki to several of my friends and family and will continue to do so. I've taken 2 all inclusive trips via Nikki and Creating travel dreams. Everything needed is included, questions I'd ask she is already on top of. Especially with our Cancun, Mexico trip it wasn't as simple as going into Jamaica seemed. Water etc. Also I like the comfort of knowing I'm not sent anywhere she hasn't seen personally or wouldn't stay herself. From the connecting flights with my daughter meeting me in Dallas to head to Cancun it was ALL SMOOTH SAILING! Thank you again!

Nikki is fantastic to work with! My Dad and I went on a 14 day cruise and ended up having to come home a day early. While everyone else on board was stressed, I contacted Nikki and new plans were arranged immediately. When the cruise line needed to reimburse us for changing flight plans, Nikki did all the legwork and reduced our stress level immensely.
