Balance Life With Leisure
Balance Life With Leisure

When I was only 6 years old I traveled by steam engine from Philadelphia to New York City and stayed at the Hotel Astor. The magic of that moment has never faded, and it's my passion to create those same kinds of experiences for each one of my clients.

While group travel can be one of the most exciting and fun-filled ways to see the world, all those moving parts require intricate and often complex itineraries. Far beyond the typical group travel planning that simply oversees flight arrangements and airport transfers, the group excursions I book are true full-service events designed to help create memories that you'll treasure for decades to come. I've escorted groups totaling more than 100 people, working hard to ensure those memories are the stuff of legend.

I have sailed on Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival, MSC Cruise and Royal Caribbean and that stayed at some of the best hotels and all inclusive resorts around. I have visited many countries including:

  • Caribbean
  • South Africa
  • London
  • Paris
  • Amsterdam
  • Mexico
  • Costa Rica
  • Japan

One benefit of my many years of experience is the connections I've made along the way. This network of in-the-know locals helps facilitate experiences that you would never find in the pages of a mass-produced guidebook. If you're looking for one-of-a-kind experiences, be it on a cruise, land tour, or European getaway, my resources are the perfect place to start.

Part of being a hands-on travel agent is open availability, and I'm always there for my clients no matter what disaster may crop up. When Hurricane Sandy hit NY in 2012, it nearly spelled disaster for a group of my clients looking to travel to the Big Apple from the Eastern Caribbean. While self-booked travel or internet deals would've left them stranded and disappointed, I was able to reroute the entire group to Bermuda, setting up not just flights but also private tours and accommodations.

Travel is a chance to open your eyes to a world far beyond the borders of your neighborhood, and I'd love the opportunity to be your guide.

Exciting 45th Birthday trip

Reviewed By Ronnie - Brooklyn, NY | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
From our first conversation to the last Laurence was amazing. I told him what I was looking for in a hotel and amenities and he went to work. He came back with 3 and we narrowed it down to 1 and it was the best place i could have picked. Even when people cancelled on the trip Laurence stay in contact with me and the hotel and made sure I wouldn't be stuck with paying for something that was beyond my control. He was wonderful and the trip was wonderful. This was my second trip where Laurence was involved. This was the fjrst one I was coordinating and he was a ray of hope. I'm definately looking forward to planning something for next year.

"Amazing Lifetime Experience"

Reviewed By MR. BELL - Rockaway Beach, NY | Traveled to Ghana ~ Africa
Considering this was to be my first international trip - and, I had specific goals to attain for myself, LP turned out to have been an "excellent" choice.

I did plenty reading to find a travel agent that was not only knowledgeable to my requests but personable and relatable as well. He met those characteristics. Be mindful however, LP can be direct in the beginning, and "that" is a major plus because he is willing to drop you on the spot if "you" do not meet his criteria. Thus, zero BS and zero time wasted for both sides.

There were a few concerning moments for me prior to my flight, particularly with attaining the visa required to enter Ghana. LP however stuck with me via email and text, as well as with his contacts for Ghana to get me the material I needed expeditiously because time "was a factor". While I was in Ghana LP frequently made contact with me to assure all was well. I was very pleased with this gentleman, professional and humorous guy - will request his service aga

Three Generations Travel to Paris

Reviewed By Jan, Rosie and Bri - Gaithersburg, MD | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
“Positively outstanding!” is how I would describe Mr. Laurence Pinckney. Laurence successfully planned a seven-day itinerary for three generations of women to Paris, France. My Mom really appreciated Laurence contacting us to confirm our transportation from the airport to the hotel ran smoothly within hours after we landed in Paris. While we were in Paris, he remained in contact to ensure we were having a wonderful time and continued to make suggestions about things to do and places to eat while we were there. My Mom, daughter and I truly had a great time in Paris. We cannot thank Laurence enough for his help with making this a memorable trip. You will be hearing from us soon with our future travel plans!

A nice relaxing vacation!

Reviewed By CA - Washington, DC | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
Laurence is the absolute best! Goes above and beyond to ensure you have the best experience ever. And always adds a nice touch leaving gifts or messages for you when you arrive at your destination. I'll never book with anyone else!...Puerto Vallarta was nice. I thought the staff for the most part was exceptional. (Noeh especially made my day DAILY. He's the best! Santiago was also super accommodating as well. I never went without a beverage--he was refilling before I could ask) The entertainment staff was a lot of fun also . Engaging, but not pushy. The beach was too rocky and rough to enter, but the pool area was well kept and you couldn't beat the views. When we arrived, our room was definitely not up to standards (few large dead cockroaches...so they moved us to another room, which was worse, but again we had a nice rear view of the ocean and decided to make the best of it) The hotel rooms were somewhat dated and could use some upgrades, but we tried not to complain too much.

Phenomenal Experience

Reviewed By Wes&Debbie - New Jersey | Traveled to Dubai ~ United Arab Emirates ~ Middle East

Thank you for putting together a fabulous trip. Dubai was a sight to behold with seemingly award winning architecture. Cape Town was beautiful with those gorgeous mountains. Our pictures, although beautiful did not capture what we witnessed. Also you must make sure to tell your clients to go to Camps Bay every time they visit Cape Town.

You and your team in both countries were fabulous. They all were very professional, especially since they’re dealing with so many different personalities, needs and wants. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We are finally rested and hopefully you will get some rest as well. We will truly recommend your company without hesitation.

Laurence and Annie,
Just a quick note of appreciation to let you know how much I enjoyed Spring Fling!I know it took a lot of planning and hard work to make it happen. My favorite was Capetown. It was not what I expected, so clean and beautiful. I liked the hotel and their friendly staff. Excellent driver and guide. Their tips should be doubled. Robbens Island was a dream come true Dinner at GOLD is worth a return trip. Thank you!
The wineries were absolutely outstanding. As I was researching, I realized just how much South Africa is known for it’s wine. So glad a tour was offered.
Even though the tour of the township was heart wrenching we needed to see it. Table mountain, the safari and all the sightseeing was fascinating.
Please tell the next group about Willoughby & Co. restaurant in the wharf mall. Excellent food and the hotel shuttle drops you off at the entrance.. Friendly people. They even have Black African sushi chefs.
Thanks again, for a wonderful experience.

Laurence is phenomenal travel agent!!!
My wife and I own a construction company. We have two very active teenage daughters in high school. Between, work, high school extracurricular activities and academics, planning and going on a family vacation did not seem like an option for our family. We connected with Laurence and got the vacation of our dreams. Once Laurence presented some options we chose a cruise. He walked my family through the entire process. There were no surprises.

When the Going Gets Tough, Laurence Gets Going!

Reviewed By Anthony B - Babylon, New York | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Yes. Yes. Yes!

Out of the gate, Laurence was very attune to what we were looking for in a beach vacation. We were impressed by how meticulous Laurence was. We were also pleasantly surprised with how quickly he responded to any email we wrote to him, regardless of the time of day. By our departure date, we felt completely ready to go, and we were thrilled with Laurence's help.

Laurence continued to go above and beyond for us while we were away. When we both got sick, he was on the phone with us while we were still at our resort giving us clear direction on how to navigate through the situation. When we returned home early filed a trip insurance claim with our credit card company (which required more paperwork than we could have guessed), Laurence came through within the day with every item we needed.

Laurence is a class act. We hope to work with him in the future, and we highly recommend him for anyone looking for a travel agent.

Superior Service with a Wonderful Resort

Reviewed By Sailormanuel - Columbus, Ohio | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Laurence is absolutely the best. I met Laurence over a year ago while cruising on Royal Caribbean. While there, he explained to me the benefits of using a travel agent compared to doing it myself. I then promised to use him for my next trip. Then came 2018. I reached out to Laurence for recommendations to the Dominican Republic. He recommended the resort based upon my wants; he assisted with the booking including airfare, transfers, and excursions. Needless to say, I have a wonderful time and Laurence checked in from time to time to make sure all my needs were addressed. His customer service was superior and I cannot be more thankful. Breathless Punta Cana is great. And if you want to a break from the party, you can go next door to New Onxy and enjoy all their amenities. Punta Cana will be a must visit for me for years to come.

It was time for my big birthday trip (before I turned 41, I wanted to send 40 out in style). I knew I needed rest and relaxation and I wanted it to be in the most beautiful place and Laurence knew how to deliver. Although I'm a decent planner because I do it for a living, I wanted someone who would deal with all of the details. We identified our location and preferred type of travel experience, and that was all we had to do. For once, I wasn't responsible for making sure every I was dotted or t was crossed. From making sure we got our deposits in on time, to arranging our transportation from the airport to our Villa, all of this was covered. He called and emailed me as the trip approached to keep me on track so that we wouldn't have less than a stellar experience. When we arrived in Costa Rica, our driver was ready and took us on a tour of the country en route to our final destination. Laurence called to make sure we had arrived safely and confirmed with our concierge that we had everything we needed. This type of service is not easy to find and it's hard to forget. From this point on we will make sure that we use Zen Biz travel on our annual trips. Thank you, Laurence, for bringing me a MUCH neededicated reboot!

My Wife is the one that handle all the communication with Lawrence but I was right there every time. My Wife would ask him all the questions I had. What impressed me most was his attention to detail. He gave us information we didn't know we needed. He always updated us promptly regarding our travel plans & answered all questions. As far as our trip, I was overly pleased with the hotel & area he booked us in. It was such a cute & homey Paresian neighborhood. I really felt like we lived there & now call Cadet "Our Neighborhood". We weren't surrounded by a bunch of hotels in some tourist area( at least it didn't look or feel that way). I felt like we got a taste of how Paresians live. Because of this & the recent event in Paris, I feel so close to the people we just lived amongst.

Laurence has been a GREAT friend to my girlfriends and family when we need to plan a trip. We have been to Belize and St. Maarten under his guidance so when I wanted to plan my 40th birthday trip, there was only one call to make. From the beginning, Laurence was really understanding of our financial constraints but also of our desire to make this trip absolutely AMAZING! When I said I wanted to come to New York City and stay in Harlem, he went right into action. He recommended this place for my birthday dinner that not only had AMAZING food, the service and treatment we received was superb. We wanted to enjoy the experience, have a few adult beverages and not spend the entire night with a designated driver having to follow the motorized voice of the GPS and not enjoy the antics so he recommended a great limousine company that REALLY delivered a fabulous experience. Together, with the owner of the limo company, they figured out a few GREAT places for us to take pictures of our trip and have memories we can treasure for a lifetime. Thanks Laurence - we're thinking of another GREAT one for next year...

Laurence is absolutely the best travel agent I've "never" met, LOL! He asked all the right questions to help me figure out what I really wanted for my special trip. As a solo traveler, we were both walking in uncharted territory but the vendors he hooked me up with were phenomenal! They made sure I never felt alone even though I was solo. His response time is fast and he's very thorough in making sure you get what you need! I couldn't recommend him more highly.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

trip of a life time

Reviewed By Kathy - Bethlehem pa 18017 | Traveled to
This was the first trip my daughter and I took along. We both have always wanted to go to Africa. I knew nothing what to do! I totally relied on Laurence for everything. He took my hand step by step through the whole process. There were times when I felt very overwhelmed but Laurence was always there to calmly talk me through every step. He is very patient and I never once thought I was bothering him. I was so impressed the day we were to leave and he is calling me to make sure I was on my way to the airport. I have never had a travel agent do this. I now have a new travel agent that I will go to for my next adventure! Thank you Laurence!

Most Memorable Vacation

Reviewed By Robbin & Michael - Atlanta, GA | Traveled to
WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!! You always come through with helping us plan our vacations, finding things to do when we arrive, and making sure our guest and I are set...ready...to go! This trip was our most memorable from the ceremony to just everything Paris. You went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed every minute in Paris.  Chentrelle and her wife Anika now call you THEIR travel agent. I can't wait for us to start planning for next year vacation and all other vacations after!! Much appreciated, Robbin and Michael

Excellent Father and Son Vacation

Reviewed By Steve - New York | Traveled to
After Hurricane Joaquin changed our father/son criuse plans, Lawrence stayed with Royal Carribbean for hours till an alternative trip could be booked. My son, 25y/o, commented " you have a great travel agent. He was so helpful". My son is not easily impressed.Lawrence's attention ro detail, coordinaton, and comfort was fantastic. This was my 5th vacation planned by Lawrence and each has been a flawless event. I highly recommend his services and personal touch.

Great Service

Reviewed By D & E - New York | Traveled to
Laurence stepped in and saved the day. Our original vacation plans fell through, Mr. Pinkney found us a great resort in Fort Lauderdale. His professionalism and dedicated service is refreshing. He will be our go-to Travel Consultant.

He rescued my vacation

Reviewed By Melvin - Staten Island, New York | Traveled to
Laurence arranged for me to take a one-week cruise of several cities in Brazil. I purchased airline tickets based upon the dates the cruise stared and ended. When the cruise line decided to extend the cruise beyond a week, preventing me from taking it, I assumed my vacation in Brazil was ruined. But after helping me get a refund from the cruise line, Laurence arranged a land trip in Brazil that topped the cruise. He used his contacts in Brazil to arranged for the best tours, dance performances and street festivals I have ever attended. I not only had fun in Brazil, I learned a lot about its history. I am so glad I couldn't make the cruise - the land trip Laurence arranged was ten times better.

A Miracle Worker

Reviewed By J - New York, NY | Traveled to
Lawrence did a wonderful job scheduling my family trip. We were left hanging after a terrible storm had forced our planned vacation to relocate to a completely different place, but thankfully we had Lawrence backing us up and scheduled us for a new trip only a few days after the first one. It couldn't have been easy either considering how many people must have felt the same way but I'm very glad he brought us through
