My Background

Growing up on an Iowa farm gave me the desire to travel, experience and explore any place different from what I already knew.

My favorite class in school was history so I have always had the desire to find out how the rest of the world lived in the past compared to how they live now, challenge myself to new ideas and be exposed to new places, people and cultures. Travel is a “great escape” from the stress of regular life. Seek what you don’t have at home: better weather, gorgeous scenery, exciting experiences and you will return home with the best souvenirs of all – memories of your incredible adventures.

After several years away from the travel industry, I returned to my first love and passion: Travel! So whether you are seeking a romantic "off the grid” secluded honeymoon, a family vacation at a lively and luxury all-inclusive resort in the tropics or a European trip of a lifetime – I can assist with every step to create a travel itinerary uniquely for you!

Hawaii

Marnie was great. She helped us plan a fun trip to Oahu and Kona in January. We wanted specific experiences and we're very pleased with our tours, our housing and our transportation. Marnie communicated with us well. She explained every detail of our trip well and researched and responded to all our questions. We will consult with her for future travel.

A week of fun!

Marnie worked extremely hard to plan our vacation. Getting the best deal was important to her, but when I said my mom is 90, Marnie started to plan for an older person. She understood running through airports was not an option. She redid our flight making it a direct one. The effort she put into the planning was more than anyone else would have done. After our trip, she wanted to know how everything went. She wanted feedback to help her with future vacationers.

Marnie is fabulous! Highly recommend. Our trip was everything we wanted and more. We even had a name mix up with our airline on our tickets and Marnie fixed them right away! This is why we go through a travel agent for now on for all our vacations!

Amazing!!

Marnie made vacationing even more relaxing! We didn't have to worry about anything. We told her what we wanted, and she took it from there. Nothing went wrong because of Marnie. We will be going through her again in the future! Highly recommend!

Pinkerton west coast trip

By: James Pinkerton


Reviewed on: 07 Apr 2018

Wow. There are not many people you can rely on like you can Marnie. Our trip was more complex than most. We had parameters due to my wife's MS. My wife does well, but tires easily. So: Fly out of Minneapolis (no lay overs) Fly into San Francisco for 2 days. Drive no more than 3 hours/day. Stop at scenic high points. From San Francisco we had overnights in California - Bodega Bay, Westport, Ferndale, Crescent City. Oregon - Brandon, Newport, Seaside Washington - Tacoma, Camano Island Marnie worked with us picking stops. Willing to make changes, dealing with changes of vehicle drop off. She was there as a highly trained, caring professional . We were still tired, but my wonderful wife was exhausted. A wonderful trip. I would and will have Marnie help us on our trips. In these modern times, I know a person can do it themselves, but my work and life prevents me from spending time researching. I have already referred others to her. W/ gratitude, Jim Pinkerton

Ireland-The trip of a lifetime

Marnie is so amazing at her job!!! She took care of arranging absolutely everything for us with nothing left for us to do but relax, take it all in and enjoy!! Hotels, flights, rental car and a recommendation of an outstanding tour that she also took care of booking for us. Marnie is a gem to work with and every trip for us from now on will be hands down planned by Marnie with Humble Travel.

Trip to Sonoma/Napa

Marnie did a great job helping me plan my 50th birthday trip to Napa/Sonoma California. My sister and I both would highly recommend her to help you with your trip. She helped us take so many options and narrow them down for our first trip. The places we stayed and the organization of the trip was perfect. We didn't have to worry about anything.

I would highly recommend working with Marnie Wilkes at Humble Travel when planning your next vacation. I know I will be working with her again!

Beautiful Mexico

By: AliciaBarron


Reviewed on: 08 Feb 2019

Marnie did a spectacular job with our entire trip to Playa Del Carmen Mexico! The hotel we booked was called The Royal but had since been bought by Hilton. Marnie made sure to call and let us know that it changed. We had 2 excursions that she booked for us and those were wonderful. Every part of the trip from the flight, to the transfers and the excursions went just like it was supposed to. I will most certainly be working with Marnie again in the near future!

Fun Trip

Very kind and helpful. Timely in responses. Easy to get ahold of and arrange meetings. I don’t feel as though she was as knowledgeable about our resort, location, etc. We were told by her that we booked King rooms, and upon arrival our entire group was place in doubles. The paperwork then said King upon availability. This would have been nice to know in advance.

Dominican Trip

By: Chelle


Reviewed on: 27 Feb 2019

Marnie did a fabulous job for us in finding the best all inclusive resort to vacation with friends in the Dominican. In fact, we had one resort booked and she kept an eye on the reviews that were coming back on this particular resort and decided this resort wasn't in our best interest. She researched other resorts for us and found a better one that rated high. She kept the price in our range as well. We had an excellent time while there and would recommend this resort to others for sure as well as Marnie's services!

Marnie was absolutely wonderful. She was quite patient with us newlyweds who were a bit indecisive as to when and exactly where to travel. Many quotes were put together and sent to us by Marnie. We feel she kept our interests at heart when making suggestions. She was very timely when responding! Easy to contact. Will certainly book through Marnie at humble travel again!! Hoping rather sooner than later. 🙂

Belize-first time using an agent as it was a surprise gift for my husband

By: Cindy Mennenga


Reviewed on: 14 Mar 2019

A very nice person, but attention to detail was lacking. Air travel was good, resort was fantastic, but communication was sketchy. Money is no object for us. If we had known the details of the water taxi and area surrounding the inn, we would have opted for inter-island flights. More information should have been given to us. I am sure Marnie is fine with areas she has actually visited, but no "on the ground" knowledge left us with a less than satisfying trip. We have shredded the $50 certificate mailed to us as compensation. Please use the money for someone who needs it. We have traveled extensively on our own for over 35 years. My husband has been overseas over 50 times and we have traveled to almost every area of the world. We normally plan our own trips without a travel agent. I am sure Humble has a good reputation, but with our upcoming trips including a journey to Italy, Germany, France, and Switzerland this Fall, we will be on our own and using our personal resources.
