My Background

The word “passion” sums up Gay Gillen’s work in the travel profession. She used this passion to found Gay Gillen Travel in 1974 at the age of 28! She has now been planning what she likes to call “once-in-a-lifetime” experiences for her friends and clients for 35 years. Gay uses her special interests in life to inspire new ideas for each journey she plans. She loves to celebrate life and knows that travel is one of the best ways to do so.

Gay is a celebrated and honored member of the travel industry. She has been selected by Wendy Perrin of Conde Nast Traveler three times as one of the top travel gurus in the world for trips to France. Gay was also listed in National Geographic Traveler as a trusted expert on France and Italy. 

When working with Gay you will experience a passion for life and a new potential for unknown possibilities. Just as in her life, Gay makes these possibilities a reality.
