Cruise & Travel Planner Near Boise, ID

Meet Cherie Hansen, the face behind Encore Adventures! Cherie has loved traveling since she was a small child; her family briefly lived in Vienna, Austria, where she grew to love exploring new places, and her life-long passion for traveling was born.

Throughout the years, Cherie has had opportunities to travel and has picked up many tips and tricks along the way. From going to Disneyland on her honeymoon to traveling with her five children to Disney World,  Europe, and cruising around the Caribbean, Cherie has come to love seeing new places all over the globe. She loves to cruise, explore new foreign countries, and road-trip to national parks.

From traveling as a child to traveling with her husband as a young couple, traveling with small children to traveling with her children as they grew,
Cherie has traveled under a variety of circumstances and has earned the knowledge that comes from personal experience. She is eager to use that knowledge to help others fully enjoy their travels.



Best Local Travel Agent 

Cherie began using her travel expertise as a travel agent near Boise before the pandemic. Once COVID-19 spread across the world, the travel industry came to a screeching halt, and many travel agents left their jobs to pursue other avenues as travel opportunities were being canceled with no sign of reopening. Inspired by clients who optimistically held onto their reservations for when restrictions would be lifted, Cherie chose to stay in the industry in order to serve these clients.

How are Encore Adventures Travel Agents paid?

Travel agents are compensated through a commission directly from the company when they book travel services for their clients. This means that they receive a percentage of the total cost as commission. By earning their commission in this way, they are motivated to ensure that their clients have a remarkable travel experience.

When booking with Cherie as your travel agent, the price you pay is exactly the same as if you were to book directly through Viking, Globus, or Disney. However, there is one significant advantage of using a travel agent: you have the benefit of one personal contact who is dedicated to advocating for you and your trip. Cherie values good customer service and honesty, and she strives to provide both to her clients.

She is committed to creating a hassle-free experience that will leave a lasting impression. With Cherie as your travel agent, you can expect personalized attention, expert advice, and a memorable journey that you will cherish for years to come.

Cherie is truly passionate about travel and takes pleasure in sharing her love for it with her clients. With over 35 years of personal travel experience, including memorable trips with her family of seven, she understands the importance of creating unforgettable journeys. When working with clients, Cherie goes the extra mile to research and find the best vacation package that suits their needs. Not only does she secure the perfect package, but she also offers valuable tips to help her clients maximize their trip and save time and money.

Whether you are interested in a Globus travel and small group tours, a Viking river cruise, a National Geographic Expedition, or a Disney vacation, our travel agent, Cherie of Encore Adventures is eager to use her expertise to help you find the perfect fit for you!
