Testimonials

Tyson is great at what he does. He truly cares about each of his clients and really goes above and beyond to take care of the little details you don’t even think about when planning your trip. Just his knowledge of the industry alone is worth checking him out. I think you too will quickly want to plan your next trip out of Sioux Falls South Dakota to your favorite vacation destination with the help of Tyson Wharton. He’s your friendly neighborhood travel agent in Sioux Falls! You can’t go wrong!

We recently booked a trip to Hawaii with Tyson. From beginning to end, he was helpful throughout the process. If you don’t want the hassle of planning a trip, Tyson is outstanding to gather what you enjoy to do and give you a list of recommendations. If you are like me and like to plan your own vacations, I still recommend giving Sioux empire travel a shot. Tyson was able to get us deals I couldn’t even find myself online. We had a short delay on our flight out, Tyson messaged me at 5am to let us know. These little things go along way to know if you run into flight issues you have someone in your corner to help you through them. He actually cares about your trip, and doesn’t add a bunch of fees like other agents in Sioux Falls. We will book future trips with Sioux Empire Travel!

Tyson planned a trip for me and my family to go to Punta Cana, We ran into issues with flights being delayed and Tyson was on the phone at 5am to reschedule our flights to make sure we would arrive the same day. I would recommend Tyson to anyone looking to book a fun filled trip!

From the start, Tyson's knowledge and experience with Caribbean vacations helped to make the vacation planning process so effortless. Not only is Tyson easy to get a hold of, but he also made every effort to answer all of my questions very quickly. It was difficult to choose the perfect resort for us, but Tyson's recommendation of the Royalton was perfect! Tyson knew that this was a great choice for both novice and experienced travelers. As the date of our vacation approached, Tyson was so patient with all of the questions we had and was eager to help us. Right before we left, Tyson drove over an hour to go over our documents, answer questions, and ensure that we were 100% ready for our trip. Whether you live in the area, or across the country, Tyson will make you feel very valued as a customer. I cannot recommend him highly enough and am looking forward to using him for all of our future travel! Thanks, Tyson!

Tyson is super friendly, knowledgeable and you can tell he sincerely cares about his clients. He’s always been there whenever I’ve had a travel question to handle it the best he can- even though I wasn’t at that time using him as a travel agent- now if I use one it will only be him. Thanks a ton Tyson!

When you finally decide to take your honeymoon after 5 years it's got to be special. Tyson took all of the stress out and made it easy for us to just enjoy ourselves on our trip to Mexico. He gave us great advice and kept in touch from the start of planning all the way until we landed safely back home. We didn't have any issues but I'm confident that if anything had come up, he would have resolved it for us quickly. We will definitely be repeat customers and would recommend him to anyone looking to plan a trip.

My wife and I recently returned from the Royalton Suites Cancun and can't wait to go back! Tyson sent many resort options our way and provided details and insight on many of them. We ultimately selected the Royalton based on Tyson's direct knowledge of their properties and the experiences he's had first hand. I would highly recommend Sioux Empire Travel for any vacation you plan to take. Without a doubt, we will use Tyson and Sioux Empire Travel for all future vacations. Thank you for making our most recent vacation a memorable one!

My husband and I wanted to take a cruise to Alaska but had never taken a cruise before. My daughter in law recommended Tyson to us and that was where the adventure began.... This is not an easy trip to plan on your own! Tyson walked us through every detail making sure what was important for us to see and do and saved us money also. After telling my sister, brother in law and niece they signed up too! It was a trip of a lifetime and we cannot thank him enough for a wonderful time. No big issues at all and the little ones were taken care of right away. It was such a relief to be able to contact him if we had questions or concerns. We highly recommend Sioux Empire Travel and tell everyone to contact him!!!

My husband and I planned a (somewhat) last minute trip. Sioux Empire Travel tremendously exceeded our expectations!!! Great resort, price and overall experience! No hiccups whatsoever, but great knowing if there was anything, Tyson said we could call him anytime! So much less stressful than planning it ourselves! And the price was better than we could have done on our own!!!

We just returned from a wonderful vacation to Secrets Akumal in Mexico. Sioux Empire Travel handled every detail for us from beginning to end and they were fantastic! With so many questions regarding travel right now, Tyson made sure he had done all the research and educated us on everything we needed to know to travel safe and relax and enjoy our vacation. He kept in contact with us while we were there to pass on everything he was learning about updates to travel requirements so that we knew what we needed to have in hand regarding documents for our return. The resort was absolutely stunning, the staff was wonderful, and they were taking all safety precautions necessary for us to be able to stay safe as we enjoyed our vacation. We couldn’t have had this wonderful experience if it wasn’t for Tyson at Sioux Empire Travel! I give him 5 stars for service! Thank you!
