About Us:
We focus on international leisure travel, and are specialists in Africa, East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania), South Africa, the People's Republic of China, Ireland, the Caribbean, and many other destinations. We also sell adventure travel and small ship cruises. Distinctive Destinations is a full-service travel agency owned by Kathy and Jim Moroney. Personnel at Distinctive Destinations have been selling travel to the public since 1990. We are based in Sacramento, California, are well-traveled, and have been to all seven continents. We are registered with the California Attorney General and have a California Sellers of Travel number. We participate in the California Travel Restitution Fund. We have all the appropriate business licenses and insurance. We are members of numerous professional organizations and on the board of several. Kathy is the President of the Sacramento Valley chapter of the Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa (APTA). But more than this accumulation of facts, "who are we" is best answered by our enthusiasm for travel. Travel is our passion, not just our profession. The joy of anticipation for any trip, and learning about the destination, are a large part of the experience. But actually getting on that plane, knowing that you are free of your day-to-day responsibilities and are open to whatever experiences come your way--this is when the trip really starts. Your disappointment when the trip ends and your anxiousness to select the next trip--this is the passion we have for traveling and hope to share with you.

icon Detailed Information


Yes, we can assist you in your planning and booking for airline tickets, cruises, tours, rail, independent travel, group travel, and so forth. 

 We are appointed by IATA and can be found at www.checkacode.com

In addition we are members of ASTA (the American Society of Travel Agents) and ascribe to their professional standards. We are Destination Specialists in Africa, China, Kenya, South Africa, Ireland, and the Caribbean, as designated both by tourist boards, and by the Travel Institute. We also are members of the Better Business Bureau, to assist you in verifying if there are complaints about us and how they've been handled.

We are members of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO).

We serve on the board of directors of the Guild of International Travel Professionals.

And we are the President of the Sacramento Valley chapter of the Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa (APTA).

 Although we are a full-service travel agency, we do have specialties. Our specialties are Africa, China, and Ireland. We've been taking groups to Africa and China for a number of years. We can plan and arrange trips for individuals, couples, friends, families, or your social groups; we can customize a trip for you; or we can find a scheduled tour and assist with arranging for you to join it. We love working with independent travelers and in customizing an individualized itinerary for you.

Additionally, we are not limited about the products we sell. Many larger travel agencies have "preferred" suppliers, and they only sell those products. We are flexible and are proud that we use our expertise to match the type of travel experience you want to the best supplier/suppliers.

Finally, we are available to work with you in the evening, on weekends, or whenever your schedule allows.

 

 

Yes, we accept Mastercard, Visa and American Express. We do not accept Diners cards. 

We've been selling travel to the public since 1990. We have been taking groups to China and Africa for over 7 years.
