We've been around the world together and have had incredible experiences. And now we want to share those adventures with you.
About me
We've been to every continent, and have visited more than fifty countries between the two of us. Along the way, we've camped in a tent in Antarctica, cruised through the fjords of Norway and we've ridden elephants on safari in Zimbabwe. We've climbed the Great Wall of China, stood on the rim of a volcano at sunrise, and we've eaten our way through the best barbecue restaurants in Kansas City. Our love of travel and passion for once-in-a-lifetime experiences have led us here: to help others have a fantastic time seeing the world.

Thorough, Responsive, and FUN
By Polly Macomber on Feb 26, 2019
I worked with Tom to book my trip to France and Spain in 2017 and he set up a trip that was exactly what I wanted: some mainstream and some off-the-beaten-path. When a couple of glitches arose in the course of my travels, Tom was reachable and he made sure that I was taken care of. He never tried to talk me into things to "upsell" me - just the opposite: he listened to my needs and found me options that were a good fit for my personality AND my budget. And, not only is Tom efficient, friendly, and responsive, he's a smart, fun person who is a joy to work with. Can't recommend Huckleberry highly enough!

Wonderful experience!!

For the best possible service, use Huckleberry Travel!!! We asked Thomas Carpenter of Huckleberry Travel to set us up with a much needed vacation this past September. He was fantastic! Within a day of speaking with him, he had sent me a bunch of possibilities within the parameters which I had requested. I got to look at them all and then I asked him a bunch of questions about the few that I had narrowed it down to, and then we booked! Even after we booked it with him, he continued to answer all my crazy questions. He was responsive all the way through the vacation and even after wards. We had a little, tiny trouble with the hotel (through no fault of Thomas or Huckleberry) and he made good with them on our behalf even after we returned. I'll say it again: For the best possible service, use Huckleberry Travel!!!
