My Background

Growing up in South Louisiana, I developed an appetite for adventure and travel at a young age. After experiencing the beaches of the Gulf Coast and Europe, I set out on the ultimate journey to St. John, USVI where I lived and worked. While in the islands, I met my husband, a sushi chef with a passion and talent for global cuisine. Together we have traveled the globe and brought our experiences home to share with our friends and family in Baton Rouge.

I encourage travelers to embrace their region of travel with open arms. To seek out the unexpected and unnoted. Follow the lesser traveled roads. Eat and drink authentically when dinning side-by-side with the locals. Skip the over visited and underwhelming tourist traps. And ultimately put the phone and camera away to open your eyes, ears, and mind.

My travel consulting can be compared to mixing a perfect cocktail. From a Sazerac to the trusted glass of Cabernet, I work with clients to make sure their thirst is satisfied. I assist clients from early inception to the final details, creating an unforgettable excursion. Perfectly tailored and hand selected, no detail is prearranged without the client’s desire in mind. From weekend outings to weeks abroad, leisure or business travel, I can guarantee the effortless excursion of irreplaceable adventure.

Working with Kristin was fantastic! She was able to line up amenities at no additional charge to our reservation that would have normally cost me hundreds of dollars. Kristin was right there along the way to insure that we were all set for our trip and we were taken care of for the duration. I would highly recommend Kristin to our friends when they are preparing for their next vacation!

Amazing 30th Anniversary Trip

By: Fred R

Reviewed on: 28 Dec 2018

This was my first time using a travel agent for leisure travel, and now I see what what I had been missing. Working with Kristin was a pleasure. Communications were clear and timely. The hotels were excellent as were the Virtuoso benefits during each stay. But what we appreciated most were the times she went the extra mile to make sure our stays and trip would be memorable. Thank you very much Kristin!

After years of booking travel on my own, I’ve come to realize the benefit of working with a knowledgeable professional. Kristin provides good insight and has taken the stress out of my travel planning. She’s lovely to work with, responsible and thorough - I couldn’t ask for more!

Amazing Experience

By: Courtney Bush

Reviewed on: 11 Jun 2019

Working with Kristin was such a delightful experience. She took time to understand our travel style and suggest activities and a timeline that suited us perfectly. All of the activities she planned for us exceeded our expectations, and allowed us to fully enjoy our trip without the burden of having to plan it all. We were exposed to activities we wouldn't have found on our own and everything was top notch! We will definitely use her again and recommend her to our family and friends.

Awesome vacation - thanks to Kristin Diehl


Reviewed on: 21 Jul 2019

We were so worried about our first trip with the kids overseas. Having multiple food allergies, it was going to be a challenge. With Kristin by our side, we not only had a fabulous vacation, but it was also safe. We had priority contact with the hotel management and chefs to make sure we could eat safely. I would highly recommend Kristin Diehl. Can't wait for our next trip!

Amazing Planning for a Zero-Regret Trip of a Lifetime

By: candice

Reviewed on: 15 Sep 2019

Kristin immediately jumped in and worked with me even after seeing that I was reaching out to plan a 14 day trip to Asia in less than 14 days out. That was no challenge for Kristin, who called me daily to make red lines to my itinerary and worked really hard to ensure I was getting the most out of my trip without sacrificing the time for flexibility/unplanned things all while not breaking my budget. Simply put, Kristin is a true professional but also a lovely person to share the planning experience with-- and was fun to keep in touch with as I was on my trip. She's also incredibly honest-- I'll call it radical candor-- which is what you need when you are looking for guidance and trusting someone to "tell it like it is". I really appreciated that quality of hers. Overall, my only regret is that I still haven't done a shoutout post to Kristin from my trip but I am singing her praises and referring her to anyone who will listen. 100% recommended and will be a return customer for life!

Amid the planning of our wedding, our honeymoon was just another thing on our ever-expanding to-do list. All I have to say is thank goodness for Kristin! She made the whole process so enjoyable. Working with her was a dream! We absolutely loved the resort and all of her suggestions. We would have been so lost without her. We have already been telling everyone that they have to use her for their next trip!! They don't know what they're missing! 11/10 will definitely be using her for our next trip!
