Custom Travel Specialist
Throughout my travels to more than twelve countries, I’ve learned the wondrous similarities and differences we as human beings share. I find that I grow a little bit with each visit, from cooking breakfast with a mother of six in Mali to hearing the tales of Robert the Bruce while touring a castle in Scotland. It is why I am passionate about what I do.
For clients to experience this same sense of wonder and joy is my goal, from sipping a new wine as you cruise the Seine or get within arm's distance of the imposing and graceful king of the beasts in Kenya. Being able to provide the best service means knowing your stuff. To that end, just a few of my accreditations include
- ACC (Accredited Cruise Counselor) from CLIA
- More than 10 years of Commodore status with Princess and Cunard
- Disney College graduate
- Marriott Hotel Excellence Specialist
- Globus Tour Expert
My clients know they can rely on me. For example, during Hurricane Sandy, the major airports were shut down and my client thought he had to drive 300 miles to get a flight for the honeymoon I had planned for he and his bride, I went to work. Within two hours I had adjusted their itinerary to an airport an hour from home. They got to spend every minute they wanted in beautiful Hawaii.
Custom trips are an exciting challenge that I relish. From a self-driven tour in Scotland to a family week in Nashville, I have been thrilled to make clients dreams come true. I look forward to partnering with you for your unique and special travel experience.
Making friends with a local in Costa Rica
Unique Travel Events is my "go-to" place when making travel plans. Andrea Savitch handles all my travel needs, such as traditional cruises or tours, or when I'd like something more personalized. She created a milestone birthday celebration for me, and helped arrange a family vacation with travelers of multiple generations. Before planning my milestone birthday experience - a trip to California - she interviewed me to uncover my interests and passions. She discovered my life-long interest in puppets and was able to locate and schedule me in a private puppet-making class in LA. Talk about a "bucket list" birthday experience! Nina R
Andrea, our trip to the Grand Canyon was fabulous from the first<
My Areas of Expertise
When people ask my favorite place to go, Egypt is on the top of my list (along with Alaska)
We all know about the pyramids and the Sphinx, which are right outside Cairo, but there is so much more.
The ancient temples, like The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, 5000 years old still tell... Read more from my Exploring Egypt story.
