My Background

I love creating immersive, sustainable trips for intrepid travelers who are looking to embrace the authentic side of life elsewhere. As a professional travel advisor, it is especially important to me that I tailor plans to be personalized to your individual needs as we collaborate along each step of your journey.

When I set off to learn about each newly discovered or often-traveled-to destination, my primary goal is always to bring that knowledge back to share with you as inspiration for future memorable journeys. So far, I have visited over 30 countries, spanned six continents, and cultivated connections with countless peoples. Throughout my years of sending explorers to their favorite destinations around the world, I have established relationships with partners whom I trust to deliver luxury experiences. This firsthand knowledge means that I can provide reliable recommendations to guide your decisions. For this reason, I put the same level of interest, effort, and excitement into planning trips for you as I do for my own adventures.

I focus on designing enriching journeys with knowledge and care for both my client and for the local hosts in each destination because ensuring we leave a positive impact on the place and its peoples is a life-long traveler’s responsibility. It is my passion to help every curious traveler add new memories to their life’s story, make transformative connections, share in enriching experiences, and to find their elsewhere.

Alexandra is the best Travel Agent I have ever dealt with. She is very knowledgeable and handles details extremely well. I have recommended her to several friends and they all say what a good job she does. I would not use anyone else as I consider her to be THE BEST! You are very lucky to have her as part of your company

Alexandra was wonderful to work with. She is quick to respond, knowledgeable and she listened to what our preferences were. Our planned itinerary reflected our exact wishes. When a couple of kinks threatened to skirt our plans, she intervened and made admendments to our satisfaction. We will definitely continue to work with Alexandra in the planning of our travel desires.

We have worked with Alexandra for years, and wouldn't even consider another travel agent. She is organized, methodical, professional and knowledgeable. What she doesn't know, she will research for us. And, she's always pleasant to be with, always with a smile.

Wonderful Travel Advisor!

By: Jamie

Alexandra did such a great job not only planning our trip, but also answering any & all questions that we had! This was our first trip to Europe, so we weren't quiet sure what to expect. Alexandra planned our flights, hotels, trains between cities & even tours. She gave us detailed directions that were easy to follow even for your first time in the packed Termini train station. We had such a wonderful time & have Alexandra to thank!

Rhine River let us down

By: Sam

Reviewed on: 12 Dec 2018

Alexandra is top notch! A very personable, customer oriented travel agent who knows her clients and wants the very best experience for them. Unfortunately, the Rhine River was so low due to lack of rainfall that the Uniworld cruise we were to take was cancelled by Uniworld. Alexandra was super when it came to getting our trip rescheduled, straightened out our airline tickets for us and we found another trip in the interim that we are so excited about, us the fact that we will go on the Uniworld trip next December. Alexandra is an amazing trip planner, a great listener, and gets plans made in a very timely fashion, as well as fixing plans that don’t go so well despite no ones fault. We have recommended her to others every chance we get.

Holiday Cruise

Alexandra has the experience and attention to detail that one looks for in a travel advisor. She was able to get confirmed reservations for Christmas Eve and New Years Eve dinners despite our best effort. Has never disappointed us and have utilized her skills for about 10 years.

Fabulous Trip!

Alexandra is so thorough. She always arranges our hotel rooms outside the US for us and gives us our options for transportation. She has traveled extensively herself, and often has great ideas for side trips and things to see and do. She has NEVER steered us wrong. I have recommended her before. She is a great travel planner and so positive and easy to work with.

When you work with Alexandra you don't have to worry about things being handled properly. She is without a doubt the best Travel Agent I have ever dealt with. She is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. She always amazes me how she takes care of the little details which make trips more enjoyable. Consider yourself very lucky to have her on your staff. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a Travel Agent. I am speaking from experience as we have dealt with her for many years.

Best Travel Agent Ever!

By: MamaJ

Reviewed on: 02 Apr 2019

Alexandra is thorough, friendly, and accommodating. She found very low Business Class round-trip fares from Atlanta to Sydney, allowing for rested arrivals. She secured all the domestic flights within Australia, accommodations and all transfers. She arranged an amazing trip to the Great Barrier Reef and the Tjaphkai Aboriginal Cultural Park, complete with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Gold Class Kuranda rail passes. All this in preparation for an exciting cruise around New Zealand on the Majestic Princess! Alexandra pays excellent attention to the smallest details, and as long as she’s planning our trips, we know everything will be top-notch. She has arranged trips to Aruba, a trip to Ireland and Scotland, plus another cruise, and everything was perfect! Bottom line...if a trip is in your future, put it in Alexandra Tucker’s capable hands. Then sit back, relax and enjoy your time making memories!
