Hawaii Honeymoon and Gay Travel Specialist

Nothing puts a traveler more at ease than a well planned trip.  I've worked in the travel industry for over 35 years.  I know what buttons to push and the people to call so your vacation runs without a hitch. And I'm an expert at distinguishing what's actually a good value for your travel dollar.

You'll deal only with me when planning your vacation.  Once you depart, I'm available if you need me all along the way. 

A bit about my background and experience:          

  • 10 years experience as a Travel Advisor for prominent agencies in suburban Philadelphia, New York City, and San Francisco.
  • 15 years at Air France.  Eight as a Sales Representative out of their Washington DC office.
  • 10 years as a Sales Manager representing Trafalgar Tours and their luxury European cruise line Uniworld in the mid-Atlantic region.
  • I opened my travel agency Rainbow Voyages in 2014.


Unforgettable Hawaiian Honeymoons and Vacations 

  •  Because Hawaii's such a unique destination, there's an endless array of   vacation options and activities on offer. I know how the Hawaiian travel     market   works, and can cut through all the clutter.
  • For the active traveler I'll arrange sightseeing with the top guides and operators in the islands.  Because how you see Hawaii, and who shows it to you, can make all the difference.
  • Hawaii's all about wellness.  A paradise for your senses, you will come back renewed.  With unique treatments available no where else. 
  • If you're on a budget, the vacation that might seem out of reach at one time of year may work out just perfectly during another. 
  • And because Hawaii isn't just a two hour hop on a plane, I'll help you find the most comfortable aircraft and routing to fly.  Seat size, leg room, catering, in-flight entertainment, connectivity, I'm up on all of it.
  • Once you're in Hawaii I'm on call with my personalized concierge service 24/7.  All supported by my local contacts on the islands.


Gay and Lesbian Travel Worldwide

  • Never have there been more exciting travel options available for the gay and lesbian traveler.  These choices extend beyond traditional ocean party cruises to chartered all-gay luxury river sailings in the world's top bucket list destinations. But did you know that much of the tour operator business is completely unregulated?
  • When you book with me you'll have the peace of mind from knowing I've personally vetted every gay and lesbian cruise and tour operator I represent.
  • And when it comes to the cost, my price is their price on every cruise and tour by these operators.  My commission has already been priced into the cost of the package. Plus I handle the myriad of travel details.
  • Plus I'm current on gay family travel options.  I'm up on both where to take children, and where and when to avoid them!                                                             




Your Vacation Deserves My 35 Years of Experience

Our PHENOMENAL Hawaiian Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Katie Kealey - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to Honolulu, Oahu ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Rainbow Voyages recently helped us plan our honeymoon in Hawaii and they did a phenomenal job!! Paul Ferdinand took into consideration our time constraint, budget and the hotel we wanted to find us a package that fit what we asked for. He was professional, friendly, helpful, and prompt. He was on top of time lines for payment, sent us information on places to eat and things to do in Honolulu, and made sure all of the travel information was clear. He made himself available to us during our honeymoon in case we had any issues with our flight or hotel or if we wanted him to book anything while we were there. Paul went above and beyond as our travel agent! We had a perfect honeymoon on Oah'u and will be using Rainbow Voyages for future trips without a doubt!! Paul was very knowledgeable and we HIGHLY recommend using Rainbow Voyages for planning your vacation!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Perfect Honeymoon

Reviewed By Jim & Jill - Philadelphia | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
If you want someone who knows Hawaii, Paul’s your man. In short, Paul spoiled us. We recommend him enthusiastically. There are so many touches Paul added to our trip: from champagne, flowers and candy awaiting us in our rooms, to alerting us to flight delays and adjusting restaurant reservations and excursion arrangements during our trip. Paul guided us through every step of planning our trip. He knew where to go and where to avoid. He knew which hotels would suit us; all the restaurants to recommend; all the excursions to choose; and what to watch out for. For example, Paul knew which helicopter tour to take and, more importantly, to request “first class” seats on the helicopter to get up front seats. We thought riding a bike down Haleakala would be fun. As it turned out, Paul’s recommendation to book a van up and back was spot on for us. And, Paul called in advance and confirmed each excursion we booked. Moreover, he knew about a flight delay and moved a conflicting reservation.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Paul Ferdinand responded:
I really enjoyed working with you planning your honeymoon and sightseeing excursions in Maui and Kauai. I'm glad you enjoyed my "concierge service" throughout your trip. Mahalo!
