Pat Pritchard

Pat has been in the travel industry since 1975 and before that worked for the airlines. She has always loved that travel changes daily and requires constant research to be able to talk about and discuss areas of the world. She loves traveling to "off the beaten path" places and enjoys fishing and outdoor activities (even though she is saying her age is telling her to slow down now). And she loves the ability to share these adventures with clients that share this same sense of adventure.

She has done everything in the travel business from leisure travel, corporate travel, and group travel (along with accounting and managing). But she really enjoys the Wholesale business and the Central and South American market. She's learning a whole new end of the business and traveling to some amazing destinations such as Panama, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, and Galapagos; along with quite a few cruises.

You can reach her at 770-338-8427. She is ready to help you plan the most unique travel experiences ever.

Cindy Mahaffey

I am an organizer…plain and simple. What better way to use my skills but to be a travel specialist.

To be a travel specialist, you must have a passion for people, travel and be mindful of the client you are assisting at the time. I hold 3 skills needed to be a productive and efficient travel professional.

I listen. This skill is most important when getting to know your client. I love to talk with a client, understanding their wishes and producing an itinerary, suitable for the entire party. By listening, I can better choose the path in which to make this dream vacation come true.

I research. Life doesn’t allow me to visit every beautiful area in this big beautiful world. I love to take the information learned by my talks with the client and research their destination. I study an area whether I’ve been their or not. This gives me a sense of confidence when looking for accommodations or tours in the area. I want to know my clients are safe in the cities and areas I have placed them.

I am detailed oriented. Most of my clients come to me scared of planning a big trip. They’re afraid of leaving out an important feature in the itinerary or booking a transfer time before the flight comes in. This is a skill that every travel specialist must have. When an itinerary is complete, the features must fit together like a puzzle. The biggest compliment I can get is for a client to come home from a trip and say it was “seamless”. When I hear those words, I know I have done my job.

Reach out to me to arrange your next travel experience.

Crystal Johnson

Crystal joined the Condor Tours & Travel team to put her passion for travel to good use - helping others fulfill their travelling dreams! Crystal has always loved to travel. Coming from a family based in and who stays in Georgia, her desire to travel took wind as soon as she turned 18 - she began buying solo plane tickets to visit out-of-state friends any chance she got from the East to West coast and travelling periodically for work as well. But it wasn't after she graduated from the University of Georgia in 2010 that her travel experience abroad picked up. After living in North Carolina for a year, Crystal had the unique and amazing opportunity to live overseas in Germany for a few years. While living abroad, Crystal fulfilled her lifelong dream of travelling all over Europe visiting 10 different countries. Her travels included visiting 2 of her top bucket list destinations, Paris, and Rome, amongst many other beautiful cities and towns she didn't know she would fall in love with. Some of her top picks for European countries to visit are Italy, Ireland, and Switzerland, although there are many others she didn't get the chance to see...yet! Crystal plans to revisit Europe as soon as she can, with Greece and Spain at the top of the list this time.

Crystal graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychology from UGA and has a Wedding Planning Certificate from Ashworth College. She is a 200-hour Certified Yoga Instructor, and in her free time she enjoys practicing yoga, hiking, spending time with her family, and, of course, travelling. Her 1st son was born at the end of 2020, so she spends most of her time these days soaking up time with him and working from home. She is excited to put her wedding planning certificate to good use booking destination weddings and honeymoons, and honing in on her passion for yoga by booking wellness and fitness retreats. But no matter where in the world you want to go, Crystal is happy to assist you in making your travel dreams come true!
