The hotels are AMAZING. Cairn Travels has great taste and everything was perfect! Our family had more than a five star time. – Jette Youngblood

Elizabeth helped us set up a vacation for ten family members from three generations — it was fabulous! She listened thoughtfully to what we were looking for, came back with several options, helped me think them through, refine our priorities, and end up with the perfect trip. We are still reveling in the memories.  Our goal was a no stress, beach week that would be enjoyed by various age groups traveling from multiple states.  She addressed big-picture issues like safe international travel under COVID conditions and comfortable transportation between locations, and small details, like how to exchange money and where to have a festive dinner on our last night.  She provided wise counsel when I was having a challenging time with COVID concerns and checked in with us during our adventure!  Diane Baker & Francis Collins

Elizabeth has helped me be a better global citizen. I am so grateful to have her hold my hand as I step out. Thank you a million times!Margee Herring

While we had parts of our trip to Guatemala sketched out in our heads, Elizabeth of Cairn Travels did an excellent job of honing in the details and making things easy and seamless for us. There are a lot details to consider when traveling to a developing country, particularly during a global pandemic, and Cairn was instrumental to making our trip a success. Without question, Cairn will play a role in all of our major trips going forward! Walker & Allison Abney

Cairn Travels took a lot of research and anxiousness out of planning our trip and it delivered right on the spot!  – David Oehler

Fantastic trip to Sarasota due to Elizabeth’s hard work!  She made my dream reality.  Neither one of us had ever been to Sarasota so a remarkable feat to get it right.  From the beginning, she listens carefully to what you are saying, asks questions to clarify what you want, and continually works with you during the process.  Despite my extensive personal research and thinking about the trip, she had sources most travelers don’t have and clout to reduce costs and get more favorable terms.   Picking flights, taxis and hotels is important, and she knows what to do and who to choose.  My trip was different from the usual, because it had two purposes:  possible relocation and pure pleasure at the beach and in the city.  That’s hard to reconcile because those purposes clash, but she managed it perfectly.  She stayed in touch throughout the trip and even after.  She cares; you are not just another difficult client.  She went above and beyond what anyone can expect from an agent.  When things went sideways (and they always do), she was ready with help and answers.  In today’s barely post-Covid world, airlines change flights  times and seating, hotels constantly change terms, and destinations open and close without notice.  Hard to believe, but large corporations can have dysfunctional moments and screw things up.  This didn’t happen often, but when it did, she was ready to step in and put things back on track.  Something went wrong, she fixed it.  I thought travel agents like Elizabeth had disappeared back into the 20th century, but she proved the opposite and more, that they can be even better than those of yesteryear.Mike Progus 


Having a traveler for a travel agent is priceless!  Elizabeth helped us set up an amazing itinerary from start to finish after listening to what we wanted to gain from the experience.   Elizabeth’s expertise was also invaluable in saving time and money which not only took the stressors away from setting up the trip but also made everything simplified while we were on the trip.  I am thankful that we used Cairn Travels and am looking forward to doing it again in the future.  THANK YOU! Steve Jenson

Cairn Travels found us this hidden gem high up in the forest of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Elizabeth organized our travels to and from St. John, arranged our provisions, and handled every need along the way. It was such an easy and wonderful trip!Taylor Smack

We have been having an unforgettable experience! Riding horses and going to the waterfall today was amazing. -Boris Torres

We recently returned from a wonderful, escorted trip to the Dordogne region of France with Cairn Travels!  Every aspect of the trip was meticulously planned to offer unique experiences, spanning the spectrum from  “off the beaten path” roadways, picturesque villages and countryside, charming accommodations, to quaint cafes and Michelin 5* restaurants.  Elizabeth Rogers puts her heart and soul into what she does to make the travel experience as diverse and enjoyable as possible.  She listens to what her clients are interested in seeing and doing, adjusting her itinerary, when possible, to make a plan even better.  Whatever your destination may be, we are confident that Elizabeth will use her cadre of resources to make your trip one of the best ever! -Mary & Louis Basten 

After decades of traveling all over the world, I had pretty high expectations for the trip that Elizabeth put together in the fall of 2021. Our itinerary included absolutely stunning small towns in southern France. But more fantastic than the art and architecture and history was the wonderful camaraderie among the group. I highly recommend Cairn travel for anyone who’s looking for a unique experience that is casual, yet elegant, and fun, but not too fast paced. I’m about to embark on my second trip with Elizabeth, and I’m super excited about my third trip to Vietnam in the spring of 2023!
