Honolulu, Hawaii Travel Agent
Hawaiian Islands and Cruise Specialist
Hawaii Volcanoes National park lava flow - 30 mile
Hawaii is one of the most stunning and wondrous places on earth. But in order to really discover the true beauty of these gorgeous tropical islands, it helps to know a local -- someone like me!
I was born and raised in Hawaii, so the culture is within me. That means that I can provide you with more than just a booking. I can imbue your vacation itinerary with that special aloha and local insight that only a true local can add.
Plus my knowledge is not limited to one or two islands. Growing up, my dad and his brothers built and managed hotels throughout Hawaii, so we moved from island to island about once a year. All of this moving around has provided me with a deep wealth of information about my wondrous home, Hawaii.
To complement my personal lifetime experiences, I have also taken all of the Hawaii Visitor Bureau training and master specialist (on-island) classes and am the NACTA Hawaii chapter director. And I have not limited my training to just Hawaii. I have also completed educational courses and training for:
- Princess Cruises, Avalon River Cruises, Viking River Cruises
- Globus and Monograms Tours
- Disney and Universal Parks
- Marriott, Starwood, and Outrigger Hotels
I am also an experienced agent that has been in the travel business for 18 years. So I understand what it takes to design customized itineraries for my customers. I will always take the time to discover exactly what you are looking for out of your vacation.
For example, are you seeking a destination with a vibrant nightlife or would you prefer a quiet, peaceful vacation? Combined with the information you give me about your budget and the length of the trip you're seeking, I will then create two or three quotes and itineraries for you.
I also enjoy working with complex bookings, including ones where I may have to coordinate flights from multiple cities. Before becoming an agent, I worked as an engineer for a number of years, so I truly enjoy working on challenging itineraries that you, perhaps, might have trouble figuring out on your own.
And while I am a Hawaiian expert, I also book ocean and river cruises and travel to other destinations, including:
- Australia and New Zealand
- Asia, including Japan and China
- The Caribbean
So if you're in need of an agent who can put together a special vacation itinerary for you, or if you're a malihini (newcomer) who would love to have your vacation crafted by a Hawaii expert, then please contact me. I would love to help plan your perfect getaway!
