Although there have been many destinations she has visited throughout the world,Tanya’s most memorable vacations so far was traveling throughout Italy and Africa. In 2011 Tanya spent several weeks driving with her husband to various Italian cities including Venice, small villages throughout Tuscany, Florence and Rome. She enjoyed touring the many historic locations, as well as traveling through the lesser known little towns of Italy, followed by a Mediterranean cruise to explore Turkey and Greece. In 2015 Tanya traveled to Dubai and then on to Nairobi, Kenya where she learned about and embraced the culture and friendliness of the Kenyan people.

Spending time with the children at an orphanage just outside of Nairobi was an experience of a lifetime all on its own. She also experienced visiting a Maasai village to bring food hampers and learn their culture and way of living. She then finished the African trip with a Safari at Amboseli Safari Park, staying at Kibo Safari Camp. This love for travel has helped make Tanya an expert at helping others plan their own FIT packages. She loves to make dreams come to reality and it is her pleasure to help each customer create a specialized itinerary that is based on their specific interests and likes.
