International Premium and Luxury Travel Specialist

Enjoying My Visit to Machu Picchu!
Enjoying My Visit to Machu Picchu!

Hello, I'm Andy Teach, owner of Andy Teach Travel, a full-service travel agency serving all 50 states, specializing in international premium and luxury tours, cruises, and independent customized travel. In fact, I love planning "bucket list" and once-in-a-lifetime trips for my clients! I can plan tours around existing itineraries or customize a tour just for you or your group. I can book you on an ocean cruise or a river cruise-the choice is yours. The key is to match you with a tour or cruise that exceeds your expectations.

When you contact Andy Teach Travel, you'll be working directly with me. I've traveled to 50 countries on all seven continents and I want my clients to have the same memorable travel experiences that I've had. This extensive travel experience, along with my research background, will help me plan the best trip possible for you. My goal is simple-to provide you with outstanding customer service. I'm your partner and I'll be there if you need help before, during, or after your trip. I'm available 9am-6pm Pacific Standard Time 7 days a week but I frequently communicate with clients, especially those on the East Coast, before and after those hours so please call or email me at your convenience so I can plan your perfect vacation experience. I look forward to working with you!

I am passionate about travel. I love talking about it, planning it, and doing it. I inherited my love for travel from my grandparents, who used to take me on trips to the Northeast when I was a kid. They would also share their photos from their exotic trips overseas whenever they returned home.  I love travel so much that I started a YouTube travel channel called Andy's Awesome Adventures (https://www.youtube.com/user/AndysAwesomeAdventur) which is seen in over 200 countries and has achieved over 5 million views. Many of my clients watch my travel videos before they go to a destination so they can learn more about a particular location before they travel there.

Andy Teach Travel is affiliated with Nexion, a $300 million dollar travel industry premier host agency with 4,000 travel consultants around the U.S. This partnership provides me support, extensive technology tools, engaging marketing tools, preferred supplier relationships and continued educational events and training.

Antigua

Reviewed By mar - Lakeway, TX | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
June 10, 2017
To Whom it May Concern,
My husband and I celebrated "Our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary in Antigua and booked through Andyteachtravel. However, we were unable to complete our entire hotel stay and our travel agent Andy IMMEDIATELY got us a $3000.00 refund, (which wasn't covered by travel insurance)!! Had we booked through the internet, (Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz), etc., we would have NEVER RECEIVED A REFUND!! Mr Teach went above and beyond!! My husband and I highly recommend him!! We've also used Andy for our Alaskan Cruise, "Yet another FABULOUS AND MAGICAL TRIP ", Booked by AndyTeachTravel!!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Andy Teach responded:
Hi Marianne, Thank you so much for your testimonial. I'm glad I was able to get you the refund in Antigua and that you were able to enjoy your anniversary at such a luxurious hotel. I was also happy that you and your husband got to see the beauty of Alaska on your cruise. I'm looking forward to working with you in the future!

The most awesome trip of our lives!!

Reviewed By Terry - Sandy Spring, Maryland | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe
I am a planner and very detailed oriented when planning a vacation.
Andy is the same.
I told Andy what I was looking for in planning our trip to Rome and Paris and he planned every detail - the flight, the hotels, the excursions were excellent choices. Just what I was looking for - and at a great price!!

Before the trip, he provided much needed details that I didn't even think of. Then on the day of the trip, he checked in with us to make sure our travel plans were going as scheduled.

Our trip was exactly as planned and even more!! Andy's travel details that he provided made our trip go smoothly without any challenges.

After this vacation, Andy has a customer for life!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Andy Teach responded:
Hi Terry, Thank you so much for your review. I'm very happy that you and your husband had a great time in the beautiful cities of Rome and Paris. I'm glad you enjoyed the hotels and the tours and I really look forward to working with you again in the future!

Attentive and Thoughtful Travel Agent

Reviewed By Meli - Los Angeles, CA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Andy was such a pleasure to work with- he was thorough and attentive. We found Andy while booking our trip to Italy- which was scheduled for the very touristy months of July - August. He scheduled a call with us so we could tell him what we were looking for in a trip- we were heading out to Italy for a wedding and wanted to extend the trip a little longer to have some leisure time. We spoke to him and told him what we were looking for and he delivered. Our Bed & Breakfasts were PERFECT- with amazing locations, clean, and well priced. He also booked us tours and trips (but not too many as we were also looking for a little R&R unscheduled time). He followed up with us via e-mail during our trip to make sure that everything was going well which was much appreciated and shows how attentive and thoughtful he is. I would highly recommend Andy as the travel agent for your next trip!

Andy Teach responded:
Hi Melissa, It was a pleasure working with you and I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip to Italy, which personally is my favorite country in Europe. I'm really looking forward to working with you again and thank you so much for choosing me to help you with your trip!

An outstanding travel agent

Reviewed By M D - Orange County, Califirnia | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Andy listened well to the goals of my trip and was ready with ways to see a variety of things on my trip to Italy. He was prompt in responding and had great follow through. He connected me with yours that were very reasonable but good. My favorite was the tour of the Dolomites. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a travel agent who will meet your unique needs.

Unforgettable Experience

Reviewed By PC - New Jersey | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Andy was so attentive to all the details: from the daily itinerary to the trip as a whole. And he always had time for all our questions. Andy even got in touch the night before our scheduled tours, to make sure we had all the information! He was so knowledgeable about what to see in each city and how to get around; with tons of tips and ideas.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Extremely Helpful and Communicative Travel Agent

Reviewed By Lisa - New York | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My friends and I booked a trip to Italy/Sardinia with Andy, who recently returned from a 2 week trip to Italy, so all the details were fresh in his mind. He gave us great suggestions and booked our hotels and a private driver who took us to Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii. The hotels were nice and we loved our driver, which made our experience that day all the more enjoyable! What I really appreciated was how accessible Andy was, not only before our vacation but during our vacation. He would email or text me every once in a while to see how we were doing. Toward the end of the trip, I had asked him if he could send us the train schedule for Naples to Rome and he responded promptly so that we wouldn't have worry about it. Andy also requested that I call him after the trip so we could review everything. I truly appreciate his attention to detail, his communication with us, and his accessibility. He was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to booking my next trip with Andy Teach Travel!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Andy Teach responded:
Hi Lisa, I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip and I'm happy the private transfer service worked out well for you and your friends. I enjoyed planning your trip and keeping abreast of your adventures as the trip progressed. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks again!

A wonderful and beautiful trip

Reviewed By Linda - Woodland Hills | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Andy has been with us from the planning stage of the trip to the actual trip and even the after trip. He is polite and courteous and very good about distances between cities, transportation and places to see. When Luftansa lost our luggage, Andy was on the phone and computer constantly trying to track our luggage and return it to us.He went way overboard in his help and care for our comfort and trip. Also Andy researched and found us a wonderful travel guide for the Amalfi Coast and booked our walking food tour. Lastsly, he worked tirelessly on finding us two beautiful hotels which fit our needs perfectly. And I am very particular with hotels. All and all, we are not seasoned Euopean travelers and Andy's planning and reservations made it so much easier for us so have a successful trip with professional guidance all the way.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Andy Teach responded:
Hi Linda-thank you so much for your review. I truly appreciate it and it's been an absolute pleasure working with you! I'm so glad you and your husband were able to enjoy your vacation despite the hardship at the beginning of your trip. I look forward to working with you in the future and thanks again.

Paris & Rome Trip 2019

Reviewed By Amie - Torrance, CA | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and gave us a lot of options for tours and hotels! He helped us plan our trip to Paris & Rome in June 2019, and we had the best time seeing Eiffel, the Paris Catacombs, the Louvre, The Vatican, the Pantheon & Roman Forum and learning how to make pasta! We will definitely give him a call next time we're thinking of taking a trip! Thanks Andy!

Excellent trip will all details covered

Reviewed By Santiago - Long Beach | Traveled to Russia & Northwest Asia
I haven't used a travel agent in years, but after trying to arrange my own trip to Russia, I realized I needed help. I came across Andy's many positive reviews online. The travel agent business is far from irrelevant! Andy did so much research on my behalf and went above and beyond in helping me accomplish the many things I wanted out of this trip. The hotel choices were excellent and the tours were incomparable. I have, and will, refer my friends to Andy.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Andy Teach responded:
Hi Santiago, I'm extremely happy your trip to Russia went well. Glad you enjoyed it and thank you for your valued business! Andy Teach
