I have lived abroad and I have traveled the globe. I know Japan and SE Asia very well. Lux Life Magazine awarded me the honor of Best Japan Travel Advisor. I was honored by G Adventures as an Ambassador of Change for my focus on sustainable travel. 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 in Iceland, cherry blossoms & snow monkeys in Japan, climbing inside an Egyptian pyramid, cruising in Ha Long Bay, 10K 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 can help you plan a big bucket list adventure of a lifetime anywhere in the world. All you have to do is e-mail me to get started. I cannot wait to talk to you. Let`s Go Round the World!

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
