Thea Foley

Lakewood, CO

Travel Advisor and designer of Complex Itineraries

To say that I eat, sleep and drink travel is probably an understatement. Travel is what I do for business and for pleasure. And I especially enjoy the challenge of stitching together complicated itineraries. I pride myself on never backing away from any travel project, no matter how impossible it may seem to create.

An example? I recently pieced together an itinerary where the client wanted to go from Denver to California to Hawaii to Tokyo. From there, my client wanted to travel to India, then to Dubai and to Prague and then finally back home -- all in a two-week period.  Did I throw up my hands and tell my client this was impossible? No way! I worked feverishly on this itinerary until I had made my client's dream a reality. It was crazy and rewarding all at the same time.

Two of the reasons why I am able to design such complex itineraries is because of my great attention to detail and also because I've been in the business for many years. I started in 1984 and owned my own travel agency for a number of years. Today, I work as an independent contractor, which allows me to concentrate all of my attention on the needs of my clients -- not on the day-to-day needs of running a business. This freedom also allows me to stay in close contact with my clients before, during and after their trips.

While I love booking and traveling to all destinations, the following are some of my favorites:

• Europe. I love visiting Europe because it is part of my and my husband's heritage.
• South America. The countries in South America are beautiful and have very interesting and intriguing political histories.
• South Pacific. The people -- as well as the islands -- are just so warm and friendly.
• Cruising. What's not to love when someone is cooking for you and making your bed for you every day. Cruising allows you to do as much or as little as you wish.

So when you are ready to book your next trip, I hope you get in contact with me. I know that, together, we can create your dream vacation.

Thea, We can't thank you enough for everything!!


We can't thank you enough for everything!! Our destination wedding trip was perfect and we really owe it all to you!

We repeatedly got compliments from all of our guests about how helpful & great you were and we could not agree more!! Even with the large amount of people, you made sure everyone was always taken care of and anything we needed, you were already 1 step ahead of us. We have recommended you to several people and will continue to refer people to you and we will always use you for our future travel.

Thank you so much for being so professional, helpful, kind and wonderful! There are no words to tell you how much it means to us.

Thanks again, you are the absolute best!!

Calm. Smooth. Efficient. Perfect.
Thea was incredible. Handling a booking of 26 students and 10 teachers and parents with grace and calmness. Everything was done to perfection and every time a little hiccup happened on our end, she smoothed it on hers. Thea went way above and beyond -- even meeting the group at the airport to make sure everyone got checked in smoothly. I can't say enough good things about her. Calm. Smooth. Efficient. Thank you, Thea! You're seriously the best travel agent.

She made planning a trip easy and stress free.
Thea organized a nostalgia trip for me back to Venice and Paris last year. She provided knowledgeable advice regarding lodging. dining and sights that I hadn't seen there even though I'd been to both cities previously. I would recommend her to anyone taking a trip to Europe and I've heard very complimentary comments about trips she's organized to Southeast Asia and cruises.

Thea is a whiz at sorting through travel details!
I dream of planning a trip to an exotic location, but for now my travels are predictable - all to the east coast to visit my granddaughters as often as I can get away! I always know that Thea will find me the best fare, working with the dates and travel times I need. She is very responsive and super organized, and always shares my excitement in looking forward to each trip. On one occasion, an emergency made it necessary to make a major change in itinerary mid-trip. It was such a relief to be able to call Thea, knowing she would be able to take care of all the details. No matter where my future travels take me, I'll be calling Thea!

easy, Great rates, detailed information
Thea knows travel. Booking travel for families from other cities to all meet on a summer vacation. Airline choices, hotel choices and area must see recommendations. Fantastic friendly experience. highly recommend THEA for any travel, Hotels domestic or foreign travel. Group or single travel. Will not use anyone else. THEA booked a company holiday overnight outing for us - made me look very good to all those in attendance. Everyone kept thanking me for putting together such a great event. Truth is, I only called THEA and she did the rest.
