"My husband and I worked with Andrea, founder, to plan our two week honeymoon to New Zealand. We can't say enough great things about Andrea, and our trip. Everything was so easy. We did a self-driving tour of both islands, and we did not have a single moment of stress or confusion - Andrea laid out every leg of the trip in such great detail, we simply followed our itinerary and never had a misstep. We did no research at all ahead of time, and simply trusted Andrea's recommendations as to the best stops, excursions, hikes, etc., and we are so happy we did. It was a dream vacation, from start to end. 🙂 "
"I arranged my first trip with Blue Ibex in 2013 for an extended trip to Colorado with my daughter. It was a great trip with a good mix of do-it-yourself activities and guided tours and with diverse experiences. Since then I have arranged several more trips with Travel Specialist Andrea who has made our travel arrangements for everything from beach resort vacations to a two month trip to the far corners of China. Each and every time I book a trip, Andrea takes time to put together thoughtful itineraries with unique experience that I have not found through other companies. We are happy with our trip arrangements and have already begun arrangements for my next trip in 2016!"
"Andrea booked our annual ski trip, this time to Snowmass CO. She is awesome, SO conscientious to details. (And I'm a pretty high maintenance shopper.) She answers emails super fast. Condo was great, everything was ready when and where it was supposed to be. Will definitely use her again. "

They are amazing! We absolutely loved our trip so much. Andrea set us up with very unique and beautiful locations to visit with hotels that were of great value.
We had some amazing highlights that others who I've told about were not able to compare their travel company to ours.
We plan on traveling next summer, god willing, and we will definitely be in contact with Blue Ibex. "
"Our family asked Andrea for assistance with a trip to Alaska. Andrea was amazing! She booked and organized our trip which included an extraordinarily well thought out itinerary. There were 7 of us which included 3 teenagers. The tours and guides that Andrea booked for us were so perfect for our group. Tailor made. The private guided glacier hike was a highlight, something we would not have know about or booked without Andrea. We also kayaked and went on whale watching trips as well as a boat tour of the glaciers. All recommended, booked and scheduled by Andrea. The bed and breakfast Andrea arranged for us was nothing short of amazing, chef and all.
We followed through on all of the recommendations that Andrea made, even in our down time and we all had a perfectly smooth trip of a life time.
Thank you Andrea for understanding our group dynamics and providing tours and activities perfectly suited to us.
We have used Andrea's expertise since and plan to ask for her assistance in the future. She has an amazing depth of knowledge for travel suggestions and we look forward to our next trip."
"I have a crazy schedule with little time for planning so I reached out to Blue Ibex for help. I knew the kind of experience I wanted....beautiful setting, outdoor adventures, away from the crowds, great food and accommodations.... Your Travel Specialist, Andrea, asked a few question and got back to me with a number of amazing options, places I never would have found on my own. Planning and booking were easy and seamless. I look forward to future trips through Blue Ibex."
"Last year my wife, 6 friends and myself went on a 2 week trip to France. We arrived in Paris, took a train to Southern France for a week. we stayed at an absolutely fabulous, Bed and Breakfast. After this week we took a train back to Paris, where we rented a car and drove to the Normandy area. We toured the area with a combination of 'guided tours' and self-directed tours. We spent the next few days site seeing our way back to Paris, staying at various B&B's, along the way.
The final couple day's of our trip were spent in Paris.
This sounds like a busy trip and it was. Without exception, all logistics, rental car, lodging, guided tours, etc. went with out a problem!!!! We have traveled the world quite extensively, and this was the best organized trip. No problems at all. We told Blue Ibex Travel what we wanted and they delivered! The people we worked with were friendly, extremely helpful and eager to make our trip memorable."
"We recently took a two week trip to France with three other couples who we travel overseas with frequently. We were interested in staying in boutique hotels and using some local tour guides, but mostly exploring on our own. Our focus was to visit the highlights in Provence, Normandy, and Northern France with a few days in Paris. Andrea from Blue Ibex Travel put together a customized itinerary for us that included fantastic accommodations, train and car rental reservations, wonderful local guides, etc. All were beyond our expectations. Every little detail was taken care of. We will definitely use Andrea and Blue Ibex Travel for future trips and continue to recommend her to our friends and family."
"My wife and I have been saving for a trip to Africa for the last 15 years. We had no idea where to start and with great luck we found Blue Ibex Travel and Andrea. Andrea asked us what our desires were and we didn't hold back. Of course our budget, which Andrea worked magic with, was a big consideration.
Over time, after all our questions and concerns, Andrea put together our trip. We didn't have to do a thing. In the mail, came our bound itinerary. Everything was taken care of: transfers between locations, contacts, tickets, reservation numbers, and even tips on things to do with our free time. It was so complete. Very soon into our trip I learned that everything was planned perfectly. There was not one glitch. This was a complicated trip involving Kenya, Tanzania, the Serengeti, and Zanzibar. Over three weeks, not one hiccup.
The best part about Andrea and Blue Ibex Travel was that Andrea got us. She made off the beaten path suggestions we had never heard of, but trusted her and went along. Those choices may have been the real highlights of our trip. As we spoke to other travelers the conversation often turned to, "what have you done or seen?" My wife and I soon realized we were on a very special trip with added experiences that the other tourists were not seeing. Obviously Andrea has a deep knowledge of the area from which we benefited immensely.
We absolutely hope to use Andrea again in the future. Trust your travel plans to Blue Ibex and you will have a trip of a lifetime - like we did."
