Off the Beaten Path, Custom Vacation Specialist

I am anything but by the book. When I create a vacation experience, my strategy is not to make the client fit the opportunity, rather I make the opportunity fit the client. My focus is on designing custom vacation experiences based on your desires. This can only be achieved by a professional who is knowledgeable, experienced and a good listener.

My typical work day might include working on a honeymoon to the Galapagos Islands, a family trip to Japan or booking a cruise to Australia and New Zealand.  All require a keen attention to detail to make the trips successful and stress-free. They also require knowledge and experience. and while I may be a professional travel agent, my avocation is travel. I have been all over the world, including an intense, but incredibly satisfying, five-week trip around the world. I’ve been to every continent, but Antarctica. I also spent 12 years in Brazil, which afforded me the opportunity to travel throughout South America and get to know the cultures there. My favorite places to visit are Lima, Machu Picchu, Cuzco and the Galapagos Islands.

For my clients looking for beauty and relaxation, I like to recommend French Polynesia which I have visited several times. Tahiti might just be one of the most beautiful places on earth with sparkling beaches, clear skies and white sandy beaches you have to see to believe!

Travel planning can be difficult, but my philosophy is simple. This might be my client’s only opportunity to travel, and I want to make it as special as it can be. From booking a evening Harbor Cruise in Sydney to snorkeling with sea turtles, I'll can help fill your vacation with memorable moments that will keep you coming back for more!

Our Dream Maui Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Kahleela - Atlanta | Traveled to
Ken is the perfect travel agent! He is knowledgeable, professional, and wonderful to work with! His attention to detail and expedient response time was extremely appreciated while planning our honeymoon to Maui. Our trip exceeded our expectations. Amongst other details; Ken arranged transportation and the company he selected was prompt and courteous. From the moment we arrived to the island we were greeted at our airport gate with leis and escorted to our private car that took us to our immaculate resort that we were blessed to call home for 6 days, even to the day we departed the island everything was perfectly planned. This vacation was everything a vacation should be and More, we will definitely utilize the services of Ken for our future vacations and highly recommend him for your vacation needs! Happy Planning and Happy Travels!

He planned and executed an Australian/New Zealand Trip

Reviewed By Jim - Laleland, Georgia | Traveled to
I had always wanted to visit and experience Australia and New Zealand. I had only two weeks for vacation. Ken was able to create and put together a very memorable and comprehensive vacation to these two countries. Looking back, I realize how well he had prepared me for the trip, how flawless his preparation was, and how well his knowledge of the two countries and of traveling allowed him to leave me with a truly memorable experience. Nothing was left to chance, and the time schedule allowed me to see and experience all that I wanted. I can't imagine how it could have been any better.

Professional and personable!

Reviewed By Amy and Charlie - Olathe, KS | Traveled to
We have utilized Ken Milan's considerable talents many times on larger scale trips we have taken. Ken returns e-mails lightning-fast to us after we have made initial contact about a proposed trip. He thoughtfully lets us know of other points of interest or special events at our destination, even after we have booked our trip and flight. He recently resolved a flight issue for us (brought on by my error!) that could have been costly and inconvenient if not for his help. We have always enjoyed the accommodations Ken has suggested and have not had any glitches with any of our trips booked with Ken. He is a very affable and enthusiastic person as well as being a total professional. We HIGHLY recommend Ken Milans!

Fantastic Agent

Reviewed By HappyTravels - New Jersey | Traveled to
I have had the pleasure to have Ken book our family trips for years and he is simply the best! He pays attention to every detail, things that I myself would not have thought of. Ken is the most delightful and responsive person. He listens and works hard until the trip is perfect. I trust Ken and would highly recommend him to anyone needing to book a trip.

Ken is very patient and understanding.

Reviewed By Joan - Shawnee Mission | Traveled to
Ken has planned two trips for my family...Maui and Cancun... I have been very happy with each trip. It has to be a real challenge to coordinate group travel (10 people) and do it without any problems coming up along the way. Ken has been very kind and understanding when I ask for trip information and the trip doesn't happen.... I appreciate that very much. I will always think "Ken" when travel plans come up for myself or my friends.
