Read seven good reasons to choose a travel agent to help you arrange your travel.

Here's a few of the things I can do for you:

Plan a tropical vacation using proprietary Cultural Immersion Travel© concepts.

Help you get there with consolidator tickets.

Help you get around your destination with rail passes and tickets, car rentals, ferry tickets, transfers, and travel cards for using public transit in the larger cities.

Find and arrange for lodging in anything from a boutique hotel to a B&B to a luxury lodge to a villa to...

Book you on a tropical cruise in the Caribbean, around Latin America, around Hawaii, along the Mexican Riviera, and in the South Pacific.

Book you on a tour that lets you be as active as you like, from bicycling through New Zealand vineyards to multi-city escorted coach (what we'd call a "bus") tour or even a private tour with your own driver and/or guide. There are so many special interest tours (e.g., garden tours, battlefield tours, fly-fishing trips), that I can't list them all, but would be glad to help you find the tour that caters to your particular interests.

Enroll you in a cooking school or a language school.

Get you tickets to the theater and special events.

Send me an email describing your needs, and I'll work for you to meet them beyond your expectations. Here's a more complete list of services I provide, but remember that there is much more than I can begin to list. If you can think of it, I probably can find a way to help you do it.
