With fluency in Spanish and K’iche’, a Mayan dialect spoken in Guatemala, Magruder can plan a variety of blood-pumping experiences in Central America and beyond. The adventure travel advisor arranges trips trekking in the Andres, mountain biking on safari in Zimbabwe, and kayaking in Antarctica. She planned some 400 adventures last year, all while jetting off to Peru to spend two weeks hiking in the Cordillera Huayhuash mountains, plus stints Botswana, Alaska, and South Africa.
Magruder prides herself on creating action-packed itineraries in destinations that remain relatively undiscovered. She’s also secured hot air balloon safaris in Africa, women’s cultural trips to Jordan, and thousands of hiking trips throughout South America. Clients praise her for matching them with experiences in destinations they hadn’t even considered.
"Over the years, Kassandra has come to recognize our needs, likes, dislikes and level of adventure that is appropriate. She never "oversells" a trip and is quite flexible in adjusting to our changing needs as we learn more and more about each destination. She is easy to talk to, very responsive and incredibly informed. She is quite a traveler and shares her experiences willingly. Because of her, we have had some amazing experiences in destinations that we may not have considered. We know we can contact her, tell her we want to go away at a specific time of the year and ask for suggestions. We enjoy working with her and hope that our relationship will continue for many more years." - Jerrilyn Rozner
