A bit more about me...

People travel for different reasons and it's my mission to ensure they aren't disappointed in the trips they entrust me to help create.  I take a bit of an empathetic approach in my planning.  After a brief consultation, I plan my client's journey as if it's a trip that I'll be taking.  Keeping your...

Australia Travel Specialist

For such a young nation, Australia sure does have plenty to offer visitors.

You should no doubt see the country’s icons such as the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, and Uluru (aka Ayers Rock, but please call it Uluru).  But beyond that, the country has so much more to extend to the...

Very well organized first trip to London and Paris
Wally was easy to work with. He took a generous amount of time to speak with me on the phone multiple times during the process of planning my vacation. He has knowledge of very good tour companies and reliable transportation companies to provide services where I traveled (London/Paris). Wally made it very easy for me by emailing a final grouping of vouchers that I printed and took with me on my trip. These vouchers not only acted as tickets in some cases, but also were a good way for me to remember my scheduled events. Because of the help Wally provided me, my trip was much easier and stress free. This was my first time to both London and Paris, so having the help of someone who has been there before, and understands the best ways to plan, was invaluable.

Our Around the World Trip
Wally is our "Go To Guy". He has planned trips for us ever since 2007 and every one has been perfectly executed. His customer service is superb. H knows EXACTLY what we like, he anticipates our desires and he always comes through. We have been to over 25 countries using Wally as our travel agent. I have referred over twenty friends, family members and business colleagues to him and will continue to do so! He is the BEST!!!

Family Vacation
Wally has been my travel agent for years now. He is my rock. To date, I don't think Wally has ever made a mistake in my reservations. He has attention to detail which I don't have the fortune to have.
I don't know how he does what he does so well, but I am grateful.
In short, I highly recommend Wally to any of my friends should they need help with their travels.
Thank you,
April Rains Portillo
