Hi, I'm Kristal

My name is Kristal Hicks, and I’m the owner and travel designer at Top Tier Travel Group. If you’re here, it means you are in the early stages of planning a vacation that must be really important to you, and I’m so glad you’ve reached out.

For me, traveling isn’t just about taking pictures and checking places off of a bucket list, it is about choosing to invest in your most important relationships, deliberately slowing life down, and letting the magic of a place inspire you and breathe fresh life into your spirit as well as your closest relationships. Helping my clients create bright, meaningful memories that they will reflect on often and carry with them for the rest of their lives is what gives me goosebumps when I go to work, and why I do what I do. It’s never just about the logistics of travel (although I handle that, too). It’s about getting to know you and making sure you get goosebumps too.


Did I say I’m glad you’re here? Because I am. Welcome to the Top Tier Travel Experience.

All About Me

From the moment I connect with you about your desire to navigate the world, I've already embarked on your voyage. I am committed to creating iconic and immersive experiences for my clients that offer them more than an endless string of photo opportunities. I want my travelers to enjoy moments abroad that allow them to deepen their relationships with those they love most as they slow down and absorb the magic of their chosen destination.

Having traveled to more than 180 cities across 20 countries in 4 different continents, I am uniquely qualified to serve my clients. My favorite destinations to book include:

  • Fiji — This island destination in the South Pacific will simply take your breath away. Fiji offers unparalleled tropical beauty as well as enriching cultural experiences, making it a wonderful option for couples looking for an unforgettable honeymoon destination.

  • Africa — Luxury African safaris are often a bucket list travel experience, and for good reason. When in Africa, travelers enjoy mesmerizing experiences as they glide through the savanna and witness nature's most magnificent creatures in their own habitats.

  • Europe — European tours effortlessly combine culture, sophistication, history and flavor, making them the ideal travel experience for people of all ages. I can design a customized European tour that builds upon your personal interests while also introducing you to new inspirations.

Whether you are looking for adventure or you’re looking to surround yourself with romance, I can curate a travel experience that caters to your needs and desires. My goal is to create memorable, genuine moments for my travelers that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. This ability to have a lasting impact is what drives me each day, and what pushes me to find that next unimaginable experience for my travelers.

Contact me today, and we'll begin planning an immersive and invigorating itinerary together.
