Randy Dye, Director of Tour & Travel
When I started working for Four Seasons Tours in 1990, I had no idea how many memories I would help create over the years. From the thousands of young performers who have showcased their talents at Walt Disney World and on Carnival Cruises, to the directors and chaperones who put in endless hours of practice and planning, I feel like I have become a part of something that will last forever in their memoirs. Now as Director of Tour & Travel for Four Seasons Tours, Contest of Champions and Rock The Boat Cruises, I am able to oversee the countless hours and dedication which our staff puts into making every trip become one of those lasting memories. Our family atmosphere, accessibility and personal service are assets that I will always make a priority so that every person who travels leaves with something that lasts a lifetime.
Barbara Simpson, Office Manager/Accountant
Since being with Four Seasons Tours, I have had the pleasure of working with all areas of our company. Currently I am the Office Manager/Accountant with over 20 years experience in accounting/finance. I have also worked in our Rock the Boat cruise department where I had the opportunity to work with all types of student groups to plan and make their cruise a memorable one, as well as with our Contest of Champions National Cheer, Dance & Drill Competition and escorting our Four Seasons Tours groups. Because of my accounting background, you could say I am “meticulous” with details, as is everyone here at Four Seasons Tours. That’s what we do, we take care of the details so that you and your group can relax and enjoy a wonderful experience – whether it is a performance trip, cruise or competing at our nationals!
ROCK THE BOAT CRUISES / AIR CHARTER DEPARTMENT
Becky Evans, Director of Cruise & Air Charter Services
Having worked in the Travel Industry for over 25 years, my experience with student travel allows me to handle just about any situation! I started to travel at a very young age and have not stopped!
Our program with Carnival Cruise Lines offers an opportunity for students to explore the world and visit different countries. If it is a Performing High School Band or Senior Class Trip, our attention to detail makes sure every detail is taken care of and the group has a hassle-free experience.
Outside the Office:
My favorite place to be when I am not traveling is my home! My partner Mike and I have 4 dogs and a cat, all rescues. Our animals find us! I enjoy exercising my dogs, spending time in my kitchen cooking with friends and I am a movie fanatic! We have started a Bamboo Garden in my backyard and I have furnished our garden with Garage Sale finds!
Favorite Destination – Anywhere in Alaska and New Orleans!
Pet Peeves: Anyone who mistreats animals and substituting conversation with texting!!
Sara Brill, Cruise Specialist
I graduated from the Rosen College of Hospitality Management in 2010. Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed working and getting experience in all of the different avenues of the hospitality field. I am new to Four Seasons Tours, but I am loving every moment of it! I love working with student groups and making sure that all of their wants and needs are met, and of course I love making their trip the most memorable trip that they have been on!
Outside the Office:
Being adventurous is an understatement. I love to be outside boating with friends, white water rafting or just being out on the beach. I am known as being a Happy Go Lucky type of woman who always likes to smile and laugh.
Favorite Destination – Half Moon Cay, Private Island for Carnival Cruise Lines & Grand Turk
Pet Peeves: Drama, bad attitudes, and slow drivers

Kari Land, Event Sales Coordinator
Being a part of the COC family has allowed me to have a job that I absolutely LOVE. After graduating from Ocoee High School, I attended Tallahassee Community College in Tallahassee, Florida. I later enrolled at the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa, Florida where I studied Fashion Merchandising and Retail Marketing. I started ballet classes when I was five years old at the Elizabeth Parson Dance Studio in Windermere, Florida. Shortly after I found my passion when I joined Pop Warner cheerleading. In the years to come I took my talents to the All-Star and High School Cheer level. After graduating high school, I decided to continue my passion by trying out for the UCA Staff with whom I spent my summers traveling around teaching cheer and stunt camps. I have also had the privilege of coaching at the high school I once graduated from. I believe my passion for cheerleading and many years of experience in the cheer and dance world will allow me to create a once in a lifetime experience for all of the teams I have the privilege to work with.
