Mendy Kooi

Edmond, OK

Europe, River and Ocean Cruise Specialist, Japan

During the past 13 years, I have helped more than 1,000 student groups and faculty members explore this world. In the process, I have accumulated a vast amount of first-hand experience and have also encountered and dealt with just about every type of group travel problem you could imagine. One of the most important things I learned during this period was how to get a group traveler the most bang for their buck. Students typically aren't flush with cash, so it was important for me to find interesting and fulfilling excursions, activities and tours that were easy on the wallet

I didn't just book those tours for the student and faculty members. I also accompanied them to Europe approximately two to three times a year. I also have family members who live in Austria, so I also travel to that specific country frequently. Besides many places in Europe, other destinations I have traveled to include but are not limited to:

  • Honduras
  • Japan 
  • China
  • South Korea
  • Russia

One of the "bonuses" of my frequent travels are the personal connections I have developed over the years with hotels and guides in some of the major cities. Because of these connections, I'm often able to give my clients a more personalized experience.

During my travels, I have discovered many interesting tours and excursions that I enjoy sharing with my clients. That means you can expect the unexpected from me. For example, while those packaged itineraries you find on the Internet will only include a standard "city tour," I'll help you find that excursion with a twist. In Japan, it might be the Ghost Tour of Kyoto. Or if you're heading to Austria, I might suggest the "Dark Secrets of Vienna." If you are an art lover, like me, I can give you suggestions on exceptional museums, since I have visited many of the great ones during my journeys to Europe.  

I have a special passion for river cruises, especially in Europe.  I would love to sit down and visit with you about this unique experience.   It is a great way to see some unique destinations.

In addition to my travel experiences, I have also earned training certificates for Viking Cruise Line, AMA Waterways, Globus Family of Brands, American Cruise Line, G Adventures National Geographic Tours, Royal Caribbean, Disney's College of Knowledge and Eurorail. So are you ready to explore this world? Then please contact me. I have the experience and knowledge necessary to create a unique and personalized vacation that will also be within your budget.

Fabulous Experience!
Mendy was great to work with. She has spent so much time traveling Europe that she knew a lot of great places to send us. We were on a tight budget but she helped us manage the trip without going over. She was particularly helpful in guiding us on culture, helpful apps & website, and what to avoid. She took time to get to know what kind of an experience we wanted to have. What we enjoyed doing. We had a great time! This was my first time working with a travel agent and it was awesome. I would recommend her to my friends and will definitely use her again!
