Phoenix, Arizona Travel Agent
Australia & New Zealand Travel Specialist
My 22 year travel industry career has not always been as a travel consultant. It began as a reservations agent for a major international hotel company. It was this job, where I interacted with other travel agents booking their clients reservations. After encouragement from a very enthusiastic agent, I began to dream of becoming a travel agent myself. Along the way to becoming a travel agent, I have been in the employ of a Las Vegas tour operator, a major car rental company, and even lead a team of customer service agents for an air consolidator company before beginning my 19 years as a travel consultant. I’ve been with Travel Leaders/Signature Destinations for nearly 14 years now. I brought with me strong corporate and leisure travel experience, but not content to remain mediocre my training was escalated to attain further knowledge after my hire date. Even today, I maintain continuing and expanding my education in order to be a voice of expert advice for my clients. A few of my accomplishments and designations include: Aussie Specialist 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist Certified Leisure Travel Specialist Princess Cruise Lines Commodore Cunard Cruise Lines Commodore The destination I most love to help clients get to is Australia. It has so much to offer travelers; from the unique wildlife, vibrant cities, gorgeous beaches, beautiful natural attractions, and my favorite part is the people that call it home. I love assisting clients with whatever destination they desire to travel. I plan each trip through the eyes of the client to ensure they get the most value and highest satisfaction from their journeys. People travel for different reasons and I strive to ensure that their expectations are exceeded for whatever reason they may be traveling. www.facebook.com/agentwallaroo

We first used Wally at Signature Destinations back in 2005 on our trip to Beijing, China. The trip went off without a hitch and was so smooth that we used Wally as our personal travel agent to book our subsequent trips to South Africa, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand. The biggest trip Wally has done for us was a 28 country, Round-the-World itinerary that he expertly booked and was PERFECT! Wally is a true travel professional and knows his stuff and has never led us astray and has gotten us out of several binds overseas. We have recommended him to all of our friends and family and will never book an overseas trip without him! .... Carmen B.

I don't know how he does what he does so well, but I am grateful.
In short, I highly recommend Wally to any of my friends should they need help with their travels.
