About Me

My Background

As a lover of food, wine, travel and with over 27 years in the travel industry, I have been leading groups to cooking schools in Italy, garden tours in Mississippi, London theatre tours, and engaging in the culinary delights of New Orleans...among many others.  Along with those interests, I also have a passion for the camera.  My travels and adventures have led me around the world photographing the sites and people...along with the search for the perfect "sip".  I earned my Certified Specialist of Wine designation from the Society of Wine Educators and have studied with the International Sommelier Guild and WSET ( Wine & Spirit Education Trust).  I am also an active member of Women for WineSense, Society of Wine Educators, the French Wine Society, The Wine Century Club and various other travel and wine organizations.

 Join me as we embark upon new adventures exploring the world of kitchen and vine as we discover regional wines, foods and share a "sip" or two with old and new friends.

Tina planned a trip for 10 women to Ixtapan Spa in Mexico and it was an unqualified success. Everything went perfectly and we all had an amazing and relaxing week of fun and pampering. Tina is always charming, prepared and eager to help with even the most unusual requests. Love her!!!

Europe cruise

Tina was a great help we would use her again and have recommended her to friends. Had to cancel. Paid a premium for trip insurance. Your trip insurance is a total joke. It is the equivalent of self insure which would have been the same without paying the premium. We did not get travel vouchers we were supposed to get when we canceled the trip because of medical reasons.

Family Trip of a Lifetime

This trip was a Christmas present to our family - the thought of planning it overwhelmed us!!! Then we called Tina - she had the most perfect trip imaginable planned within a week!!! We could never have thought of everything she included - airline reservations (13!!!), rental mini-vans (it takes 2), fantastic lodging (for 13!!!), 2 private guides for 2 private tours (most amazing tours & guides possible w/vans big enough for 13!!!), white water rafting, horseback riding, restaurant reservations (for 13!!!), and a rodeo to top it all off!!! If questions came up, Tina was just a text away. She took care of us immediately! Our kids & grandkids still talk about the fun we had every time we're around them. My daughter & granddaughter made a photo album of this trip for our Christmas present this year - a gift my husband & I will treasure for the rest of our lives! Tina is a priceless commodity and has become a very dear friend - won't travel without her - EVER!!!

Great Lakes Cruise

Our 10 day cruise on the Pearl Seas was BEAUTIFULLY planned by TINA. Our pre board hotels, flights, and all the planning was flawless. My husband and i went with 2 other couples and we ALL agreed that this cruise is #1. too long for what you do and see, and 2. there is nothing to do at night on the ship. 3. some of the stops are not necessary and boring. We are all in our 50's/early 60's and we were the youngest ones by at least 12 + years. The night entertainment was mediocre and there is no dance floor. the history lectures were extremely good and well presented! When you sit on top, there is noone to wait on you for cocktails or food. The food was mediocre and the butter at each meal comes in tiny plastic tubs. It is not an inexpensive trip and the least they can do is put pads of butter on a plate...presentation. Waiters and staff are great. This could easily have been a 5 day cruise. Some days we were in a boring port too long. Enjoyed eating meals at different ports.

Trip to Australia and New Zealand

This was an incredible, over the top trip from beginning to end!! Tina Aikman planned the entire trip covering every detail to perfection! It is so easy to work with Tina because you know she will always plan the kind of trip that just fits you. This was a very special celebration time for us as we were celebrating our anniversary. Tina contacted all of of the fabulous places where we were staying and we had wonderful welcome gifts at each place. If anyone is ever looking for a travel agent that plans and takes care of detail and is so pleasant to work with, Tina Aikman is the best you will ever find!!!

"Another" Trip of a Lifetime

From start to finish of this trip, Tina planned every detail to perfection! It was a complicated trip being a cruise, but had a 2 day trip at the outset to Santorini; a night's stay in Dubrovnik at end of cruise; then 3 days/nights in Venice. Tina made all travel arrangements, all transfers to & from hotels, which she hand-picked and were all over the top!!! - she arranged all the private tours with the most amazing guides ever that showed up exactly when she said they would! And then there were the unplanned incidents like my sprained foot - Tina called ahead to the airlines and as soon as I checked in, assistance was waiting for me & the couple traveling with us to swoosh us through every security line, every custom's agent - straight to the gate and onto the plane. I couldn't have asked for more!!! Tina is a credit to her profession - my husband and I will never plan a trip without her!!! We very highly recommend Tina - she's the best!!!
