Effortless, perfect travel with Kristen Working with Kristen Meckem is easy, breezy and perfect!
Kristen intuitively knows what we want. I think that this comes from her innate sense of style, her intelligence, her own travel experience (vast), her professionalism, her follow through, her contacts, and her joi de vie! So wonderful to have her plan a trip. Her enthusiasm is contagious as she sets the wheels in motion for yet another adventure in my life. Can’t wait for my next Kristen trip!

So happy to have her as my “Travel Team Leader”! Thanks Kristen!

 Our fabulous “Trip of a Lifetime” started with Kristen’s well thought out planning of our 3 days in Paris. We did the right things for our time there. Loved our darling hotel and restaurants. Next our stay in charming Brugges was fabulous starting with the effusive welcome given by staff at the Chateaux & Relais hotel. They suggested the perfect restaurant and helped with our visit there. Onto Amsterdam and another wonderful hotel booked by Kristen. Canal view, boutique hotel, we were in heaven! Then into our amazing 10 day river barge cruise down the Rhine on a Viking boat. Wow. Having Kristen taking care of all of that planning was a boon. Everything about the cruise was 5 star. We were so well taken care of we felt spoiled! This was a “trip of a lifetime”, but hopefully the first of many more. Huge thanks to Kristen for making this happen so seamlessly. Her professionalism, knowledge and follow through are 5 star +.
— Martha M
The trip you planned for us was excellent. Everything was perfect; from hotels to tour guides to transfers. All 3 of my friends raved about all your choices for us. Rick Steves gives Giverny a one star. Betsy said, “Momma, Rick Steves is not always right; trust Kristen.” So glad I did. It was one of our favorites.Thank you so much for all your help and patience.

As all of my friends on FB know, I went to Nice & Paris France in June with my Daughter Darci & my Granddaughter Miah. We had a wonderful time. No worries, felt very safe . We owe our wonderful trip to Kristen Wile Meckem, she planned our trip by meeting with us, trying to get all the information she could to make our trip comfortable & fun. We had no problems at all, it went as Kristen Wile Meckem had planned. NO SURPRISES. The best trip ever! Thank you!
— Debi F
I just had to tell you what a fabulous trip Barb and I had! It was even better than I had dreamed – you planned and carried out the most exquisite three weeks that anyone could ever have. I don’t know how you did it! I still can’t believe that I have actually been to Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangkok, and Singapore! There was never a glitch! The itinerary, the flights, the fabulous guides, the drivers, the hotels – all of it was perfect. Even my birthday party in Bhutan!
— Lynette W

A huge thank you to Kristen Wile Meckem Travel for organizing and booking our amazing trip to Belize. She went over and back of the extra mile to make our trip amazing.  She saved me countless hours on the internet nailing a beautiful 5-star resort for us Las Terrazas on Ambergris Caye taking all doubts out of the equation of what our trip would be like. Thank you K! #sheshiredforlife

I’m presently on a fabulous KWM planned trip to Northern Spain and Southern France and couldn’t be happier! Only halfway through, Woohoo! As a person who’s always planned my own travel, I found myself too preoccupied (WSOP) to plan our summer holiday this year and Kristen was my savior. We are grateful and would recommend her highly. Thank you my beautiful friend
— Aileen B.
Kristen did a fantastic job of vetting our resort property in Roatan, Honduras and was quite helpful in helping us to identify the activities we wanted to pursue. I was very impressed with her attention to all of our need and would highly recommend using her services.
— Mike W.
An enormous Thank You to Kristen Wile Meckem and Kristen Meckem Travel! Planning a three week multi-city vacation out of the country is quite an undertaking. We could have never done it ourselves as organized and seamlessly planned without her assistance. Kristen’s suggestions, attention to detail and resources available to her company made the process headache free and more importantly the TRIP easier to enjoy. Our tickets, vouchers and information were ready when needed so we had more time to be in the moment as a family and as curious (and often weary) travelers. The trip was a perfect balance of sights and tours, relaxation and down time where we could be spontaneous. And eat lots of gelato. Thanks for listening to our requests and wishes and for pulling together a vacation of a lifetime!
— Diane S.
Dear Kristen, we cannot thank you enough for your care of our family. We truly appreciate all of your assistance and work to make our trip a wonderful experience. We look forward to working with you again, but more than that, a beginning to a friendship. Your authenticity and care was felt and appreciated so much. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us. You are amazing.
— Tommy, Felicia, and Kendra McKenzie
We truly cannot say enough about Kristen and the amazing service she provides. Her knowledge and organization in planning our trip allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment without worry. Because of Kristen’s attention to detail we were able to move from destination to destination seamlessly. Not a single thing was overlooked – from hotel reservations to show tickets, maps and directions, and even restaurant recommendations. With Kristen’s help, the memories made were so fantastic and will truly last a lifetime.
