    Group Travel Consultant
    I'm Crystal Dyer, born and raised in Chicago. I'm the mom of three wonderful son's and 7 grandchildren.  I founded Gone Again Travel & Tours in 1999, and in 2016, opened the first black owned brick and mortar agency in the Austin community. 

    I began my passion by attending the Harper College travel academy in Palatine Illinois for travel agents and meeting planners, graduating in 1999. Transferring my job from Chicago to Atlanta, I returned to Chicago in 2013 with a burning desire to help my family and Austin youth after my grandson was a victim of the senseless gun violence.  We launched Chicago Austin Youth Travel Adventures, Inc., to take youth on excursions to explore history, cultures technology and careers in tourism, traveling to Ghana West African in the fall of 2018.
