Travel sure has turned upside down since a pandemic was declared in early 2020. It has always been my pleasure to help travelers plan and execute successful trips - with safety, cleanliness and comfort as my top considerations. My travel story: I recently lived in Japan for 2 years and I have traveled the globe. I love planning unique family adventures, luxury getaways and any kind of custom itinerary you can dream up. Lux Life Magazine awarded me the honor of Best Japan Travel Advisor. I was honored to be named as a Brand Ambassador for G Adventures. I was named Rookie of the Year by my travel partners at Uniglobe Travel Center. I will take the best care of your travel dreams. My favorite travel experiences include glacier hiking & snorkeling in Iceland, cherry blossoms & snow monkeys in Japan, climbing inside an Egyptian pyramid, kayaking in Ha Long Bay, making TikTok videos with my daughter on the Great Wall of China, exploring Angkor Wat, to name a few! I love to put the puzzle pieces together to make an amazing vacation experience. I_`m a verified travel advisor and Virtuoso luxury partner. Let me help you plan a big bucket list adventure of a lifetime! All you have to do is e-mail me to get started. I cannot wait to talk to you.

Amy Freyder at Epicaway planned our 19th anniversary trip to Iceland. She had been there herself, so knew the best tours, hotels, transfers, etc. We saw waterfalls, glaciers, mountains, so many horses, the Blue Lagoon thermal spa was incredible as was the food. Amy knows her stuff. Jen Hofer, So. Cal.

Wow!! Amy at Epic Away planned the most amazing and life changing experience to Peru! All the hotels were awesome! The food, people, ancient ruins, river rafting, hikes and overall experience was outstanding! The itinerary, boarding passes, schedules, guides and drivers were all on point. I will definitely be using Epic Away for my next trip. I highly recommend traveling to Peru too. Thank you Amy!!

AMY DID IT AGAIN!!! We went to Turks & Caicos and everything was planned perfectly. Flights, transfers, resort and travel insurance. Each time I ask Amy to plan my trip, it is undoubtedly planned to perfection. She always has great ideas and thinks out of the box in preparing the best trip. Turks & Caicos was amazing. I_`ve used Amy for all my travel plans and will continue to do so. Nothing is left unturned. Just follow the itinerary and you_`ll have a relaxing, fun and memorable trip.

Amy was fantastic. She was prepared and had answers to all our questions. She told us what to expect with the pandemic and what documents we needed for the cruise line. She was extremely helpful. She made us raving fans and we will only use her for our travel needs.

Amy did a super Job organizing our Top Producer trip this year in Costa Rica. These days in travel it is very important that your advisor pay close attention and stay up to date on the current covid type regulations and guilds as Amy did. She is a great communicator thru the planning process and take recommendations to cater to your wants and needs

Amy took care of EVERYTHING. Traveling right now can be tricky and she help me navigate through the travel insurance, testing, and all of the documents that were necessary to have a seamless experience. She was more than accommodating & contacted the resort at my request to make sure i could reserve a room with a king size bed and travel off site once there for various activities. Thank you, Amy!

Amy is a first-rate travel advisor because of her passion for adventure. As a seasoned traveler myself, both solo and with groups, I_`m comfortable booking my own trips. I take a yearly vacation with my family but this time, I wanted to dial it in using a professional because I knew I didn_`t have the time to devote to researching as much as I normally do. Amy is a fantastic listener and always quick to respond with questions. Not only did she coordinate the travel plans for me and two family members who live across the country, she went over and above by gifting our cabin with a bottle of wine and providing a birthday cake for our group. She went to bat for me when I had an issue booking an excursion on our cruise. Amy was diligent about checking up on us all in case we had any concerns and provided excellent hand holding before, during and after the trip. I will definitely be using her services again to travel in the future.

I rate Amy a 5+ stars. During this Covid-19 ordeal, when international travel is much more complex, Amy was able to efficiently and effectively navigate multiple countries travel restrictions and rules to get me a very reasonably priced ticket. I will never again make travel arrangements without her services. Best travel consultant I_`ve ever used!

I highly recommend Amy with Epic Away Travel. Amy helped plan our trip to Japan and we all had an amazing adventure! From Hiroshima to Hokkaido and everywhere in between, Amy gave us the inside tips to Japan and recommended several fun excursions such as the Romantic Sagano Railway, the bamboo forest of Arashiyama, the beautiful temples of Kyoto and shrines of Nara, Osaka, where to eat and stay in Tokyo, which castles to visit and which castles to skip, how to navigate the subway and trains of Japan and so much more! If you are planning a trip to Japan, let Amy be your guide. Amy planned our trip of a life time...domo arigatou Amy-san. -the Griffin Family

Traveling as a family of five is no easy task, but Amy at Epic Away Travel enhanced our trip to the U.K. exponentially by creating the most amazing itinerary! My kids love being part of the planning team and range from ages 10 to 13. The WB Harry Potter Studio in London was a must but we had no idea that advanced tickets were needed. Stonehenge also required advanced tickets. Without Amy_`s up to date knowledge of the travel world we would have missed both of these amazing places. Imagine the disappointment in all of my kids faces had we just shown up at the Harry Potter Studio and were turned away. Even my husbands jaw would have fallen to the ground! We also traveled north to Edinburgh and Amy arranged all of our train tickets, accommodations and excursions. She got us the best deals and rates, recommended places to stop along the way (keeping with the Harry Potter theme!) and even recommended which side of the train to sit on to get the best views of the coast. Amy is an excellent communicator and collaborator: she has so much patience and truly wants her clients to have the best experience possible. Brilliant. Thank you Epic Away- Brent, Sheila, Tate, Tessa & Preston Moraga, CA
