Dream. Explore. Discover.

Partnering with a travel planner means you get real, human interaction.

We answer your phone calls and emails.  We go to bat for you, wait on hold, and monitor your reservations so you don’t have to.

We are real people who care about you and seek your happiness through travel.

Travel is very personal, so why would you rely on an impersonal computer or large company?

Simply schedule a consultation so we can get to know each other.

Just Three Easy Steps

Step 1

The first step is a discovery call and complimentary consultation to go over your ideas and dreams of the perfect vacation.

If you would like to move forward with my services I will send you my New Client Agreement Form to review, complete and return.

About Me

Stacey Thomson - Owner


I am Stacey Thomson, owner and principal travel planner for Blue Reef Travels & Celtic Adventures and specialize in group adventures “across the pond” to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. 

My travel career started out of a genuine passion for planning travel for myself, my family and friends. I was a public servant in government health procurement for several decades and worked hard to procure the best product and services, while saving our hard earned tax dollars.  I was even awarded “Buyer of the Year” from our local chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing.  What this means to you is I have decades of experience working with multiple suppliers to get the best value for my clients.  I pride myself on customer service, integrity, and providing a personal touch while focusing on your needs and sharing my first hand expertise and knowledge. 

I am here to give you peace of mind knowing there is someone who cares about your vacation as much as you do. The biggest advantage of having a travel planner book your amazing vacation is you have someone to contact when you need it most. I will be available to you, 24/7 during your vacation.

If you are ready to start planning your vacation or are just thinking about it, feel free to reach out to me at Blue Reef Travels & Celtic Adventures!

Stacey is a gem! My husband and I highly recommend working with Stacey! We already referred others to her since we had such a wonderful experience. She is readily available and on top of details we didn’t even consider, including when our flight was delayed. We told her our budget and hopes and she matched us with the perfect place. She is a gem!

My trip was absolutely amazing! I am so thankful for having Stacey as my agent to help me with my trip. This was my first cruise and she was able to answer my many questions before going and was available during my trip to help me navigate all the activities and helped with several questions. It was truly a wonderful experience and I can't express how much I appreciated her knowledge.

Stacey at Blue Reef Travels recently helped plan a truly memorable trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon! We had never traveled to either place, but had a wonderful experience. She involved me in the planning, making wonderful suggestions and provided us with even more useful information than I expected! She checked with us during the trip, which was fabulous. Especially great was our day trip to the Grand Canyon that she booked with Comedy on Deck Tours. I look forward to using Stacey again for our next trips!

Was looking for a trip to Mexico for first time with a group of us. Found Stacy at Blue Reef Travels & Celtic Adventures. She took the time to ask me what we wanted and what we liked to do. She told us of all our options and we ended up going to a beautiful place called Mia Reef Hotel on the island of La Isla Mujeres. All inclusive! She had us set up!! No hassles at the airports, a very special welcome when we arrived at the hotel, helping reserve a golf cart for this island exploring we did, reserving a sunset cruise on at catamaran, and many more exciting excursions!! I don't think we would have found all of these fantastic extras without her!! This trip will forever be remembered and I do believe it was because of her knowledge about the places there. She has been many places herself, so she has first hand knowledge of what she is talking about! Not many travel agents can say that! I would highly advise you to choose Stacy at Blue Reef Travels & Celtic Adventures to help you with your vacation or any travel. I will continue to use her for all future plans I may have. Using her soon for a trip to Belize!! Thanks Stacy!! Our vacation would not have been so special and wonderful without you!!
