Why Pure Bliss Travel?

My agency specializes in the following types of travel experiences:


Luxury vacations — I am able to meet the various needs and expectations of every client that I work with, but I particularly enjoy being able to go the extra mile to deliver premier, luxury services to my travelers while they are away. On a luxury vacation, you can expect those extra-special moments that will transform into lifelong memories.


Immersive family travel - "Of all the books in the world, some of the best stories are found between the pages of a passport."  I strongly believe that one of the best things you can do for your children is to give them the gift of travel.  Make history come to life, expose them to a different world view. I can help curate the perfect travel experience that will forever change the way they see the world around them.


Disney vacations — I am a Disney College of Knowledge graduate, and have also visited the various Disney properties many times. Let me help with your theme park, Disney Cruise or Adventures by Disney vacation. Whether you enjoy traveling with your children, grandchildren, friends or even prefer to go alone, I know how to make this your most magical vacation yet!  


Multi-generational travel — I specialize in organizing the extensive logistics that surround multi-generational travel, making sure that you and your loved ones can simply sit back, relax and enjoy your time together!


Group travel - There are many things to consider when traveling with a group.  I can help navigate the complexities.  You need an experienced agent, I'm the one to help!

Family Travel Experiences

While young children spend much of their formative years in the classroom, I've always felt the best way to educate them is to allow them to explore the world! With this in mind, I booked a group tour to Ecuador with our two children, who were just 5 and 7 years old at the time. We stayed in a hacienda in Cotacochi, shopped the markets at Otavalo and visited the Illuman Indian village, where our children played soccer with the local children.

At some point in their lives, they may read about Ecuador and the people who live there in their textbooks. But I guarantee you they got more out of their immersive, interactive experience than they would out of any lesson plan.

It's precious moments like these that I want to provide for my clients.

Makes planning a trip a breeze
We take our employees out of the country each year the celebrate the end of the busy season. I used to do all the planning on my own, but now that I’ve found Arika, I cannot understand why anyone would plan a trip without her help! She is efficient, patient and truly makes sure that we are taken care of. I will never book another trip without her!
