Favorite Quote: "The trouble is you think you have time." -Buddha

Fun Fact: I teach Ballroom dancing part time and have for over 30 years.

I love how travel can truly enrich the soul and requires your engagement to learn more about unique people and cultures all around this amazing world. I chose to become a Travel Advisor to help others experience a deeper connection with others and hopefully enjoy the same passion for travel.

Personally, I prefer visiting exotic locations. In fact, seeing the New 7 Wonders of the World is one of my top priorities and I am thankful to say I have already checked off four; The Great Wall of China, Christ the Redeemer (Brazil), Chichen Itza (Mexico), and the Colosseum (Italy). I love archaeological ruins, nature, art, animals, and learning more about other parts of the world and other cultures. In addition, I have also experienced Spain (went to the Running of the Bulls), Greece, England, France, several different parts of the Caribbean, and traversed the USA.

When I'm not romping around the globe, I enjoy teaching ballroom dance part-time and creating photo albums of my trips (I never leave home without my camera). My adventurous nature also drives me to take advantage of any opportunity to go skydiving or bridge jumping. I would love to help you plan your next adventure....even if it's just sitting on the beach with a good book.

Favorite Travel Experiences

  • Got to dress in a Carnival costume in Rio as well as hang glided off a mountain there and landed on the beach. (Tandem)
  • Had a chance to climb the pyramid in Chichen Itza and go inside to see the seated statue called Chac Mool. They don't allow people to walk on or inside the pyramid anymore.
  • Had my picture taken with one of the farmers that discovered the Terra Cotta soldiers in China.
  • Stayed in a cave hotel in Santorini Greece. Also got to see ruins that still had red columns after thousands of years.
  • Had a chance to stop in Amsterdam and explored the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum as well as Anne Franks' house. Was able to go on a beautiful wooden canal boat that Winston Churchill rode on years ago.
  • Bareboat cruise with 4 others to BVI sailing.
  • Seeing Gaudi's works of art in Barcelona as well as Montserrat in the fog. Thank goodness the fog left so we could see the monastery and surrounding landscape.
  • Canal gondola ride in Venice.
  • Jumped off the New River gorge bridge years ago in West Virginia...skydiving.
  • Cruising on Windstar's yacht style ship in the Mediterranean up the French Riviera and down the Italian Riviera.

Most Unusual or Intriguing Request I've Fulfilled for a Customer

I had a client going to China and wanted to continue on to Mongolia where she could ride a yak. I worked on this for her while she was able to enjoy her entire trip, unfortunately it was the wrong time of year for her to access a yak to ride. She still had an amazing time!

Hi Beth,

Got your message today as well, just busy at work.  I loved our trip, and I would recommend Travelink as well as Grand Velas. I was not really hip at first about the "all inclusive," yet I trusted my new husband and this place is amazing.  Thank you for all you did to make my honeymoon spectacular. Have a very Merry Christmas and a sparkling New Year!

Much gratitude,

Cindy — Trip to Mexico

Thanks so much for your help in planning this trip for my Mother's 70 birthday. I saw her this past weekend and despite her initial trepidation she is really getting excited about the beach trip. And what a pleasant surprise to find that our trip will be less expensive than we thought. I bet that does not happen very often. Thanks again, for helping us make memories!

Hi Beth,

I want to thank you so much for your help to plan Chad & Patrina’s trip! You were an immense help and working with you on this took a lot of questions and burden off my shoulders. Hopefully we will be able to work together again to plan future trips, and who knows, maybe even plan something for myself one day.

Thanks again!

Jeremiah — Trip to London, Paris & Rome

Beth,
We had a great time! Thanks again for all your help along the way. We especially appreciated your updates on events while we were staying at the hotel. We look forward to contacting you again for future travels.

Jerry — Trip to Michigan

The trip was fantastic. I mean it. The tours, the guides, the locations, the hotels...Everything was exactly what we would have booked for ourselves if we knew what we were doing. We were well taken care of throughout the trip, and not once was there a misstep. It was the dream vacation I had hoped it would be when I started planning it, so thank you! You were beyond patient and responsive during the planning and booking process, and that made everything (even before the trip) smooth and painless. Also, please pass on our thanks to the folks at AsiaWorld tours (Swain Destinations); their execution was flawless. I will definitely be referring friends and coworkers.

Thank you for everything Beth!

Jo Paulla — Trip to Thailand

We got back yesterday around 6pm from our trip.  It was wonderful.  We had amazing weather all week long.  My toddler had a blast and my infant twins were amazing.  Thank you very much for finding us our accommodations.

Justin — Trip to Ocean City, MD

Beth,

Hope all is well and Happy New Year and belated holidays. I just wanted to reach out to let you know that I’d receive your mail flyer and honestly it made me smile. Smile to think of my Ocean City, MD trip with my family that you booked for us and your complete professionalism in making that happen. You truly do not receive service like the service your provided me and my family with too often now of days.

Please keep me on your mailing list. It was nice to see your flyer and put a face to the emails and calls. Have a great weekend and summer. Talk next winter. Thank you very much.

Justin — Trip to Ocean City, Maryland

We want to say thank you for putting together a great package for us.  Our trip to New York City was spectacular.  We had such a great time each day we were there.  The Rockettes show was unforgettable.

Lisa — Trip to New York, NY

The trip was FANTASTIC! The people in Costa Rica are wonderful and the Westin was a lovely place, great food and amenities. The volcano trip was excellent (a very long day but great) including hiking in the rainforest, hot springs and lunch in beautiful gardens. The boys went zip-lining and also went out on the Pacific on jet skis.  We also got a family portrait done on the beach. I highly recommend the trip and thanks for all your efforts!

Mary — Trip to Central America

Thank you, the trip was fantastic!! Caneel Bay Resort and St. John are beautiful, unspoiled natural places. The most glorious beaches, ocean and views we have ever seen. The resort was even better than we anticipated. The arrangements you provided for us were excellent and all flights and transfers were flawless! The trip ran like clockwork. We appreciated the updates on the app keeping us apprised of flight info also. Thank you so much for the arranging our trip- it was a perfect get-away- but too short, next time we'd like to stay a week. There is definitely much to see just on St. John.We are already planning to return- its definitely one our favorite places to visit! Look forward to talking to you.

Mary Ann — Trip to St. John, US Virgin Islands & Caribbean

I wanted to recognize your employee Beth for the excellent job that she did for setting up our trip at the Sandals Resort which we will be going next Friday. I don't know what we would of done without her. She went way out of her way and more to make it happen. We will definitely book again next year and will have Beth set up our trip. I surely hope that she will be compensated for her great work.

Colleen, 

My name is Amelia Grace & I wanted to take a moment to recognize Beth Wittrig. I truly believes that she deserves it. 

Background. Our 1st time I contacted Beth was last summer using a employee vacation program. It was Ryan (My boyfriend) & I's first trip out of town. We had no ideas beyond a beach and we also worked too many hours at the time to do a lot of planning.

This year, Ryan was awarded a gift of travel and he was forwarded to an agent randomly to book. After a few conversations I could tell that this agent was not the right fit for us so I immediately said, "We are calling Beth."

Here is the heart of my reasoning though we are polite, we are also very difficult/needy clients.

Proof below:

1. I am impatient with communication so often I would send an email & then call shortly after.

2. We are indecisive, and would request option after option. Decide and then go back through options.

3. I tend to micromanage

4. 1st trip. We had no idea where wanted to go when we called. All I said was I want a beach, I did not want Panama City. I need a rental car and we want it with in a reasonable driving range (btw we live in rural TN so reasonable is difficult)

5.  1st trip we decided to book a summer Florida trip in the middle of the busy season a few weeks ahead of departure with VERY specific needs.

6. 1st trip after booking I requested we change hotels after some recent bad reviews on trip adviser.

7. 2nd trip we changed hotels after bad reviews

8. 2nd trip after booking we had to cancel and reschedule dates. 

Despite all of this Beth is professional, personable, polite. I have never noticed her sounding frustrated, annoyed, or losing her cool.  (I admire that trait, because I am sure she has, as everyone has, but it just adds credit to her professionalism)

She doesn't tie my time up on the phone, while she researches & welcomes e-mails. 

She recommends to-dos in the area if she is familiar with the area,& even looked up the dates for a festival that she knew happens in April. 

We live in a world where I can easily book a vacation on my own. Also I know that sometimes booking it myself would be cheaper. However, I use Beth & as long as Beth works for your company I will use your company . I trust her & her assistance frees me to focus on other things with-out worry.

Thank you, 

Amelia —
