Tour, Package & Cruise Specialist

Travel is a part of who I am, and being a travel professional happens to run in my family. My mother spent her career focusing on group travel, booking motor coach tours, escorted European tours, and cruise vacations for those who wanted to see the world.

As a young boy, I was able to join her on these adventures. As an adult, we decided to go into business together. We opened our own agency in 1981, which is about to celebrate its 35th year in business.

As a second-generation travel agent, I truly know the industry inside and out. I focus on matching my clients with the vacation package that will offer them the best value and allow them to create the most memories. I specialize in booking:

  • Cruises — Whether you want to go on an ocean cruise or a river cruise, I can create a personalized itinerary for you. I have completed certification courses for many of the major cruise lines, including Norwegian, Princess, Cunard and Royal Caribbean.
  • European Tours — I am experienced in booking many destinations across Europe, and will help you prepare for an adventure through this historical continent.
  • Disney Vacations — I help families get the best deal on trips to Disney World and Disneyland, and I also help people book magical Disney cruise vacations.
  • Rail Tours — I am certified with both Rocky Mountain Rail Tours and Amtrak Vacations, and I love helping my clients travel across the countryside by train.

In addition to prioritizing professional development, I also believe it is critical to network within the travel industry. I am involved in many professional associations, including the American Society of Travel Agents, Pacific Asia Travel Association and the Association of Central Jersey Travel Professionals.

The working relationships that I have developed through these organizations directly benefit my clients, as I am able to provide them with access to the best deals and resources in the industry.

I look forward to working with you and helping you accomplish your travel goals. Contact me today in order to learn more about the latest deals and packages that are available.

Reviewed By Hawaii trip - East Rutherford, NJ | Traveled to
My son and I booked our trip to Hawaii through Ardis Travel , and we couldn't be more pleased with our trip. We did not want to stay in Waikiki and we wanted the option to park our own car, aND he picked the Ala Moana Hotel which was perfect. He also picked an awesome hotel on Maui. We would highly recommend Rick's services for your travel needs. Kathie and Steven Fukushima

Excellent reccomendation

Reviewed By JV - New Jersey | Traveled to
After many ocean cruises our family wanted to try a European River Cruise. Having dealt with Rick and Ardis Travel for many years, we asked Rick for his suggestions. Without hesitation he suggested Uniworld Cruises and we couldn't have been happier. His knowledge of the cruise line as well as all of the minor details that he was able to assist us with made the trip just outstanding. I continually recommend Rick to all of my friends and do so with confidence.
