Barbara Mahrer

Years in the Industry:  Since 2013

Where I have Traveled:  Alberta, B.C., Saskatchewan, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Texas, Florida, California, Mexico, Jamaica, Alaska, Yukon, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Cruises: Alaska, Western and Eastern Caribbean

Favorite Destination & Why:  Every place I travel to opens up a vista of sights and opportunities but one of my favorite is Switzerland because my husband’s family live there so we get to really experience the culture when we visit. 

Favorite Activities: Spending time with my family, ballroom dancing, bike riding, water skiing, downhill skiing, reading and gardening.

Community Involvement:  Actively involved in the local Evangelical Free Church, have volunteered at the Crisis Pregnancy Center and held various positions at schools in the area.

About me:  I have been married 33 years to my husband, Thomas.  We have 4 adult children: 3 sons- Jordan, Stephen and David and 1 daughter-Carina. We also have a wonderful son-in-law, Tyler and amazing daughter-in-law, Abi. The newest blessing in our family is our almost 3 month old grandson, Benjamin.  I have a Tour Directing Certificate as well as a teacher’s degree; but my greatest accomplishments have been to raise 4 responsible and loving children and to remain married to the love of my life.

I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, and what better way than to travel with them and discover exciting destinations.   Every tour I’ve directed has given me the opportunity to expand my horizons and enjoy different countries, landscapes and cultures with my newfound friends.
