Sara Nakash

Brooklyn, New York Travel Agent

An independent agent with Travel Leaders in Albertville, MN,

Specialties: Local Culture, Authentic Experiences

Off the Map Travels was founded in 2011 with one aim: to make independent travel more fulfilling.
Putting together your own travel itinerary can be a real challenge. In today’s climate, it is difficult to distinguish the yet-to-be-discovered highlights from the all-too-common tourist traps; at least until it’s too late. But our expert knowledge and personal experience can help you get it right every time.

We work one-on-one with independent travelers to ensure they get the most out of their trip. We offer expert advice, help plan and book your personalized travel adventure, and give you support during and after your trip. As a member of ATTA (the Adventure Travel and Trade Association), and as an Independent Agent for Travel Quest, we have access to an exclusive network of global travel partners who can provide amazing experiences that are rarely – if ever – available to independent travelers.

Off the Map Travels was set up by Sara Nakash; an independent & solo traveler with a passion for learning about varied cultures. She continues to travel the world (and her native USA), interacting with local communities, seeking out authentic meals, and collecting local musical instruments. Highlights of her recent travels include having her fortune read in kola nuts by a voodoo priest in Benin, taking part in the Trongsa Tshechu in Bhutan, and enjoying a home-cooked Native American meal in New Mexico.

My Reviews

First international trip

Reviewed By Chris - Salem, MA | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Sara was very thorough and fully committed to handling every detail of our trip abroad. Our itinerary was extensive while also retaining flexibility and made adapting to changing weather patterns easy to accommodate. Sara made excellent choices in our travel accommodations with both the hotels and their proximity to public transportation along with the local attractions within walking distance. We had a phenomenal experience and will not hesitate to contact her again for any travel plans in our future. Thanks!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

From start to finish, working with Sara was AMAZING!
We went to Iceland, England, and France for a total of 12 days. Everything about our trip exceeded our expectations from the flights, hotel accommodations, convenience to public transportation, suggested restaurants, daily attractions/activities....all planned with our likes/interests in mind and ALL WITHIN OUR BUDGET!

It is such a relief to not have to plan a single thing and have everything taken care of before we even left our home. She sent us our finished itinerary a week before departure including all our reservations and printed vouchers, so we literally didn't have to lift a finger.

She was also available 24/7 while we were abroad to immediately answer any questions we had while on vacation, which was invaluable since we had never travel out of the states before and had many questions pop up.

I can't wait to use Sara again for my next trip and to share her information with all my friends.
