Active and Adventure travel is my specialty and passion. I’ve completed the Travel Leaders extensive Active and Adventure travel program and have personally experienced adventure travel myself in both Ireland and Japan. Active and adventure travel can mean different things to different people but to me it can be as simple as immersing yourself in the local culture and giving back to the local community. There are so many different ways to experience adventure travel! There are tour companies that offer experiences that range from being “basic”, luxurious, to completely active tours that will keep you going all day. They specialize in offering accommodations that give back to the local economy, offer real life experiences, and use local guides who can navigate you to the best places to eat. My goal as your adventure travel consultant is to guide you towards the experience that fits for your wants and needs. In my own travel experience, this has been my favorite way to travel! You really get to experience and witness the true culture of each destination you visit.


"It isn't always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts. It even breaks your heart. But that's okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind."-Anthony Bourdain

An experience of a lifetime!
Alyssa took over our booking for our trip to Great Britain a few months before our trip was scheduled. She was extremely communicative, quick to respond to any and all inquiries leading up to, and even during, our trip! She went above and beyond to make sure everything we needed was taken care of. She was even able to book us a VIP Harry Potter Studio Tour package within our preferred time frame with pretty short notice. I would highly recommend her!

A truly exceptional vacation designed by Alyssa
I first sat with Alyssa for about an hour with a barrage of indecisive questions and vague requests. I knew we needed a vacation but did not want to go conventional. After a long chat and an additional 6 separate email volleys, amazing Alyssa set us up on a road trip up the I 35 corridor through Texas. Corpus Christi to Dallas in 8 days. Lots of things to see from the USS Lexington and Texas State Aquarium and South Padre Island, then a short drive to San Antonio & the Beautiful river walk and Alamo. Then another short drive to Austin and it’s night life and then finally to Dallas for that great town. She picked Excellent hotels in perfect spots. Although we had a pretty open itinerary, the resorts and hotels that she specifically picked for us were amazing and super close to most of the action and attractions. They were clean, great staff, and hassle free end to end.
So thankful for Alyssa’s help! She took the stress out of everything!
