It's a beautiful world & I'll help you discover it

    I started planning travel for friends when I lived in Italy. I loved studying the train schedules and finding new places for my friends to explore.  Fast forward a few years and I turned that innate passion into a career. I've been an IATAN registered travel advisor since 2002. I enjoy learning about new places and helping clients experience all this beautiful world has to offer.

    I have traveled extensively throughout Western Europe, including living in Italy.  I have also traveled to Antarctica; Australia; Beijing, China; Brazil; Bhutan; Britain; Cambodia; Canada; Cancun, Mexico; several Caribbean islands; Costa Rica, Cuba; Greenland; Iceland; Ireland; Israel; Japan; Kenya; New Zealand; Norway; Scotland; Thailand; Uganda; and various locations within the United States.  One of my greatest achievements is reaching my goal of visiting all 7 continents before I turned 40!

    I live in Edmond, Oklahoma and work on air reservations, bespoke experiences, cruise reservations, independent and guided tours, all inclusive resort vacations, group travel, and missionary travel requests. 

  My commitment is to provide you with exceptional customer service so your travel dreams become an experience you’ll never forget.

My Travel Stories

A Short Getaway in Costa Rica

Costa Rica was a fun and fast getaway.

The flights from OKC where pretty straightforward with United, which made the long weekend work better, giving us more time to spend on the ground.

We enjoyed time in Canaan (be sure to visit the Casa Alegría mariposario when you’re there), touring...Read more.

Everything worked out exceptionally well
Katie was very helpful in organising the tickets and geting the neccesary documents signed. As I haven't flown for a while she made the whole experience work well. She kept me informed on changes to flights and worked diligently to ensure that everything was in order. I had to cut my trip short because of coronavirus concerns. We found out that Australia (my home) was stopping flights and I needed to get on one soon to leave the country. Katie changed my tickets for me and got me on a flight the next day, and I didn't have to do a thing. It all ran so smoothly. She was very professional.

Our Go-To Agent!
Katie has helped us with many trips over the year, both business and pleasure. She is courteous and prompt. She works hard to get exactly what we want from the trip, sometimes working late hours to do so. Katie is our go-to girl, and it's always a pleasure to work with her.

Trip of a Lifetime
Katie is the ultimate Travel Agent. She took the time to understand our goals and dreams - down to the smallest detail! Katie laid out a variety of options and made sure we were informed at every turn. At the same time she had suggestions and ideas that we didn’t even think of. We have recommended Katie to several friends and family. We won’t take a trip -domestic or International - with out Katie Hartman doing the planning!
