Bio:

I am enthusiastic about travel. My conscientious and detailed approach to planning will ensure an enjoyable vacation for any traveller.

I have over 40 years of experience in all aspects of the travel business. A seasoned traveller myself, my in-depth knowledge of the world and my dedication to customer service help me anticipate my clients' needs to make their travel dreams come true.

Ready for any challenge, I have designed and hosted dozens of tours to Europe, Asia and Africa and my loyal clients include many who have traveled with me annually for 25 years.


TESTIMONIAL

We have been clients of Karen’s since the 70’s. She has the reputation of being “the best agent in Victoria.” This is not just our opinion. Her attention to detail, making the best connections, sourcing out the best providers and matching this with very personalized service and knowledge of her clients, makes her reputation. For any business, relationships with customers, are very important. As a travel agent they are essential. Karen develops and maintains excellent relationships. We have always been super satisfied with any of our travel arrangements but I know of situations where she even went way above and beyond. Friends were stranded in Thailand and she worked all hours day and throughout entire nights to make arrangements to get them out. On tours she ensures that every detail is taken care of, the very best guides and arranges very unique and special experiences to ensure a memorable experience for all. She is exceptionally patient with the odd [there are always a few] clients who are complainers but in the end the most begrudging would rate her highly. Indeed the best. - Nancy & Monty B.

Testimonial:

Karen has been our travel agent for 30 plus years. She is highly experienced and as a seasoned traveller has excellent contacts worldwide. She is extremely organized, knowledgeable and very thorough with all her trip preparations be they individual or group tours. Karen pays attention to even the smallest details:) Not only all that, Karen is also an enthusiastic and fun-loving travel companion when accompanying her tour groups. She is the best!!!

We have remained with Karen as our travel agent for over 30 years. We have gone on her special Karen-designed tours, and we have also had her book many other tours offered by other companies, together with the accompanying flights. In all this time she has never misunderstood our wishes, nor booked incorrect flights, nor made any mistakes on any itineraries she created. Karen has never lost her composure when escorting a trip, and never made us aware that anything was amiss while she sorted out the problems.

Karen’s tours exceed our expectations. She always brings something extra to the tour experience, whether in the form of a particularly special hotel, a local musical or cultural experience, or incredible dining. Karen’s own enthusiasm and generosity make the tour more fun and more memorable, and it is nice to see how the local tour guides respond to her warmth, and benefit from her expertise and can-do attitude. By half-way through the tour they have become good friends with Karen and the rest of us, as she is able to bring out the best in the local guides. And unlike on most commercial tours, Karen makes sure we don’t have to pack/unpack every night, but rather relax for more time in the wonderful places she’s selected.

Patrick and Gail W.

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe what an outstanding agent and tour companion Karen Dodd is . She takes such care, in planning a tour, to select destinations appealing to, and appropriate for, her clients.

Her own enthusiasm for travel is contagious at every level of trip planning and sharing of actual tours.

Once I had enjoyed one of Karen’s tours, and found no stone had been left unturned ,I was spoiled for any other travel arrangement. That is in large part why I will be going with her to South Africa this coming Fall.
