My Background

An interest in history, art and architecture developed my love of travel.  I remember as a young child being so intrigued with a book on London that my parents brought back from a trip.  Seeing the pictures of Westminster Abbey and the Beefeaters at the Tower of London, I realized that I had to see these things for myself one day. 

During college I was fortunate to travel to Europe several times... and was seriously bitten by the travel bug.  After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Art History, I spent four months backpacking throughout Asia.  Shortly thereafter I began my career as a travel agent in 1996.  I joined Belle Meade Vacations in 2008.

I truly believe that travel enables us to learn about ourselves as much as we learn about other cultures.  Bartering with street vendors in Istanbul, seeing the Kecak Fire dance in Bali, drinking gluhwein at a Christmas market in Rudesheim, truffle hunting in Croatia, seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise and snorkeling in Turks & Caicos - these adventures are some of what I value most. 

I love to help clients design their ideal trip so that they can have the experiences that they will treasure for a lifetime!

Celebrating our 10th Anniversary

By: Jamaican Me Crazy


Reviewed on: 08 Apr 2017

Working with Bernadette was great. She was knowledgeable and patient. Because of Bernadette, I was able to surprise my wife with an amazing trip to Jamaica for our 10th Anniversary. All I had to do was tell her was what kind of trip I wanted and the amount I wanted to spend and she took care of the rest. It is remarkable how much time and money I saved by using Bernadette to plan my trip. She went out of her way to ensure that the trip was perfect.Next time I need to plan a trip, I will definitely use Bernadette Osborne Tucker as my travel agent.

She is a lovely person, but I don't think she understood our needs properly. She forgot to send us our itinerary until the last minute and forgot to remind us to take a birth certificate for our child. The car seats were not reserved when we arrived. We had a budget, but it was negotiable. I wish she had said for your budget this is what I can do, but for $100 more a night, I can get you this, for example. I felt like the place we ended up was subpar. There were no restaurants within walking distance and the on-site restaurant was terrible. The place we stayed did not clean rooms or change sheets. They gave us bath towels for the beach. We had to drive everywhere to eat, and there were just not enough places to eat nearby. We drove into Clearwater for the aquarium, but it was not all that child friendly otherwise. But like I said, she is a lovely person and maybe the failings were on my part, for not being more specific with what I wanted.

Bernadette was helpful in giving me many options when I was first trying to decide on a vacation. Her recommendations were good and it was helpful she had taken the same trip previously so she could tell me about what she did in each port.
