The Travel Advisor Group
I am a travel junkie and owner operator of The Travel Advisor Group of Palm Coast and The Travel Advisor Group of Jacksonville since 1999. I have lived in the orient for two years and Germany for three years. I have taken 151 cruises since my first cruise in 1974 on the Sitmar Fairsea. I started Travel Leaders (Carlson Wagonlit Travel) in Palm Coast in 1999 and it has become the largest travel agency in North Florida specializing in escorted tours, cruises and luxury and experiential travel. We have won 14 Travel Leaders Award of Excellence as a top 24 associate. In 2014 we won the Top Associate of the Year. We have been voted the best travel agency in Flagler County since the year 2000. Our travel professionals, not travel agents, have the passion for travel and expertise to help you travel better.
Areas of the world that I have a interest in are Argentina 4 visits, Australia & New Zealand 6 visits, France with extensive touring during my 3 year stay in Germany and many trips thereafter, and Italy where it is hard to stay away from for more than one year. All these areas have a commonality of great food and wine. I now add South Africa, Spain and Portugal to that list.
Some of my best experiences have been touring the Mendoza wine area of Argentina in 2010 while staying at Cavas Wine Lodge and experiencing some amazing lunches at various wineries arranged by our lovely hosts. Another one is our stay in 2013 at Villa Dievole located in the beautiful Tuscany Hills where we experienced wonderful Italian cuisine and wines.
Due to my cruise experience, the most frequent travel question that I am asked is "What is your favorite cruise?" My answer is "I have many, each one is unique and offers different experiences." Some of my favorite are the Galapagos Islands on Celebrity Expedition, Southeast Asia on Seabourn Spirit (what large ship could dock in downtown Saigon), following the path of the Vikings on Azamara Journey (I have lots of stories to tell about that one), sailing the Adriatic Coast on Seabourn Spirit (again), and a world cruise segment on Crystal Serenity from Singapore to Cape Town. I can not leave out our wonderful river cruises with Viking in China and in Southern France, and with Uniworld on the Danube.
Our widely traveled consultants have similar stories and look forward to helping you plan your own extraordinary travel experiences.
