Brian Shields

Downers Grove, Illinois Travel Agent

Skyline Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

All-Inclusive, Disney & Luxury Cruise Expert.

For more than 27 years, my family has been in the business of travel. Whenever a client comes to me with an idea for their next getaway, I make sure to treat them like one of our own. Service is my top priority, and I want to make sure that everyone feels comfortable, respected and welcomed as if they were part of our clan who loves to experience the world together.

I specialize in VIP treatment. My goal is not only to plan an itinerary that allows you to see and do everything you wanted in a particular destination, but to also exceed your expectations.

I strive to incorporate those special moments that you wouldn't be aware of if you booked directly or through an online vendor. I have spent my professional career developing relationships with the most qualified travel vendors, and these relationships ensure that my clients are taken care of while they vacation.

My favorite vacations to book include:

  • Luxury cruises — I am known for the relationships that I have with the premier cruise lines, allowing my clients to get insider perks that other travelers simply don't have access to. I love to personalize cruise itineraries and include pre & post-cruise tours for my travelers. Recently, I booked an Alaskan cruise for a mature couple that wanted to experience the wildlife of the region. By helping them choose the perfect days on their journey to enjoy excursions, they were able to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Alaska.
  • Disney vacations — I am a certified Disney vacation planner, and I know these parks and destinations intimately. I will help you choose a package that allows you to make the most of the magic.
  • All-inclusive resort getaways — I love to match my clients with the perfect all-inclusive resort for their relaxing vacation to paradise. I am a Sandals and Beaches specialist, and I also specialize in honeymoons and destination weddings.

The bottom line is, I want the best for my clients. Customer service is my top priority, and I can't wait to exceed your expectations. Contact me today to get started!

Could Have Been Horrible!!

Reviewed By janray - Chicago | Traveled to
This was a trip of a Lifetime for me and my family, 8 of us. We went to Europe on a Cruise. If it wasn't for Skyline Travel travel agency helping us get through the traveling on the first few days of the trip I think we might have gone home.. Our flights were cancelled a few times and we had to change airlines. We called skyline as soon as the first change happened in Chicago. We were no longer going from Chicago to New York , New York to Barcelona… We have to go to Miami and catch the flight to Barcelona in Miami. We made the change at the counter, I was upset because I paid for my family so we could all sit together, now we are scattered all over the miami flight. Little did we know that skyline was paying attention to everything going on.. We now were delayed in Miami because there was an AA airplane stuck in front of the gate. Finally got off that flight, we ran to the gate and the Barcelona plane pulled away. Called Skyline again! they said we already have your family booked on a flight to Paris and Paris to Barcelona. Finally! arrive in Barcelona of course no luggage.. Call Skyline again.. They traced our luggage and found it. They had the luggage shipped to the boat, except for 1 piece.. They found us in Italy.. SKYLINE WAS AMAZING I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITHOUT THEM.. THAT IS WHY YOU NEED TRAVEL AGENCIES, if we did this online we would of had no one to call to help us.. We would still be wandering around Europe!! loll Thank You All again The Best! The Trip was fantastic after all the craziness..
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
