About Fun Time Travel

A home-based travel agency

Hi! My name is David, and I LOVE to travel!

I have over 20+ years experience in the tourism/travel industry.

 

In 1997, I began working as a Motorcoach Operater and Head of Transportation for First Gold Hotel and Casino in Deadwood, SD. During my time as Head of Transportation, and the principle motorcoach operator for the casino, I was in charge of transporting groups to the casino, as well as providing transportation for tours of the Black Hills. We would transports groups from the five state region of South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado to the hotel for package stays. Included in these stays were tours of the Black Hills, including Mt Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Monument, and Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming.

 

 

 

In the fall of 1998, I transferred from First Gold hotel, to Dakota Bus Service, Inc in Spearfish, SD as a motorcoach operator. As a motorcoach operator with Dakota Bus Service, I have operated a motorcoach in all 48 continental states, going to such locations as Yellowstone National Park, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, Las Angeles, Kennebunkport Maine, and Plymouth Ma. During my time with Dakota Bus Service, I have driven for such tours companies as Collette Vacations, Diamond Tours, and Grand Circle Tours to name just a few. In 2016, I became semi-retired from the motorcoach industry due to family issues, and opted to take a local job in the Spearfish area so I could spend more time with my family.

 

What are the advantages of having a host agency?

Something I have always wanted to do, was share my love of travel with other people. When the opportunity to become a home-based travel agent presented itself to me in July of 2018, I snatched it up. Since becoming a home-base travel agent, I have been working on building my client base, as well as learning as I earn. I am hosted by a leading Host Travel Agency based in Florida. One of the advantages of having a host agency, is the fact that we are partnered with some of the top transportation, and hospitality, providers in the business. These travel partners include, but are not limited to:

Another advantage of having a host agency, is the educational opportunities. My host agency has numerous opportunities for me to educate myself on each and every travel partner, ensuring that I can use that education to provide you, the client, with the best travel opportunites available. Since becoming a home-based travel agent, I have been taking several courses to improve my knowledge of the travel industry, and a few of the certifications I have achieved are as follows:

EMBARC ID, provided by CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association). With this certification, I have joined over 25,000 travel professionals globally, in being able to assist you in your cruise vacation planning.

A few pictures I took during the Vancouver Olympics. I was unable to attend any events, as I was driving one of the few hundred spectator buses. I did, however, get a few pictures of the Olympic Torch arriving in downtown Vancouver, as seen in this gallery.
