As owner and CEO of Passport Pleasures Luxury Travel (PPLT), I am an entrepreneur and travel specialist devoted to creating unforgettable luxury vacations. My mission is to offer people a road map toward elevating their travel lifestyle. I utilize my extensive travel acumen to craft itineraries tailored to each client’s specifications. My renowned white glove service ensures a sumptuously organic and fulfilling travel experience for our patrons while creating lasting memories.
I have always had a profound love for travel. I not only enjoy experiencing new places, immersing myself in the local culture, but I also truly enjoy being pampered along the way. As I began exploring the world and sharing my experiences, I was frequently sought out by family and friends to plan their trips. As the requests grew beyond my immediate circle and others entrusted me to service their travel needs, it became apparent to me that travel is my life’s purpose.
I launched Passport Pleasures Luxury Travel in February of 2016 on a part time basis. Proudly, in December of 2018, I transitioned to a full-time entrepreneur. Living and creating a travel lifestyle is an essential part of my being. As such, the skills gained as an adept adventurer with epicurean tastes has enabled me to customize unique and memorable vacations, specifically designed around my clients’ interests and desires.
As I leave my footprint around the world, there are places where I've also left a piece of my heart. The Greek Island of Santorini is one of them. The minute I arrived on this island perched on the edge of a submerged volcano with panoramic views of the Aegean Sea, my breath was taken away. I can attest that seeing the beauty of the caldera of whitewashed houses with blue roofs in person makes any photo pale in comparison. The most magical moment for me was watching the most beautiful sunsets ever. As the sun began to disappear below the horizon, the sky lit up with shades of yellow, orange, red and purple. Priceless! These are the moments I relish in creating for my clients.
Receiving testimonials from happy clients like Connie P. makes my heart smile and reaffirms that I made the right decision.
"Gabe and I want to thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip to Italy for us! From the drivers to the hotels, you really set us up with the best! It is so nice to have everything all planned out for you without having to worry about a thing. We had time to enjoy the experience without having to worry about late drivers or incorrect reservations. The excursions you recommended were also top notch. Thank you for putting together such a memorable experience. We look forward to utilizing your services in the future.” - Connie P.
