My Background

I'm the owner of All-World Travel, so presently I focus a little less on new business and a little more on managing the spectacular advisors we work with. You can still contact me, though; I can definitely route you to the right person for your specific travel ideas. 

Here's how all of us look at it: travel is a gift. It can change everything about how you process the world around you. When you work with one of our advisors, that gift becomes transformative; it becomes a dream-fulfiller, a value-add, and a series of "wow" moments. You'll only take so many trips in your life, so you need them to be special. We can help.

We had a wonderful trip to Kauia! The Hyatt was beautiful as normal but we enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the hotel or the golf course each day and it was super! We have never had that included when we have gone on our own at this same beautiful hotel. Our room was in a perfect location overlooking the ocean. It was a great trip! Thank you All World Travel!

Simply the Best

Alfred has been the most amazing travel agent we have ever known, in 46+ years of travel. He is smart, responsive, empathic, and extremely knowledgeable. Besides all of that, he is extraordinarily generous. On our most recent cruise, the corporate office messed up on our pre-cruise hotel arrangements. Alfred felt that he should have noticed the mistake himself, and paid out of pocket the several hundred dollars the cruise company should have been responsible for.

We are extremely pleased with Alfred's services. He is very patient with me. I really enjoy and appreciate his tact when he lets me know I need to think on a different track or It just won't work that way or mostly when he guides me to a much better plan. No matter what I ask, he always seems to know the answer or is very willing to find the answer immediately. All in all, he makes our travel much easier and more comfortable.

Alfred helped us plan a complicated trip to Chile which encompassed 2 ends of Chile. The most important thing I can say is that less than 3 weeks before our departure (for a trip during Chile's high season), I changed my mind about a large portion of the trip! Alfred simply said, "well, what would you like to do?" He made the new plan happen! Alfred also made all the internal flight changes happen with no stress to me. A magnificent vacation. Thank you!

BEAUTIFUL TRIP, GREAT CABIN LOCATION

By: Phil


Reviewed on: 25 Jan 2014

We loved the ship and the itinerary. The crew was really friendly. The food was excellent. Alfred was great! My only negative has to do with the fact that that there are no walk-in showers. As a "semi" handicapped traveler this would be a real advantage.(We could do without the tub.) IT WAS A GREAT CRUISE!

An Outstanding Adventure

We just returned from a Silversea Cruise of the Inland Passage in Alaska. It was a marvelous experience. The ship was terrific, the staff was first-rate and the food was spectacular. The shore excursions also were exceptional: sea kayaking, zip lines, hiking, dog sledding on a glacier -- a truly exceptional week! We also did the optional post-cruise trip to Denali National Park -- something that should not be missed if you are heading in that direction.

Alfred reviewed various airfare options for us because not all of the traveling party was starting from the same location. Alfred was able to find us the most convenient and cost effective airfare.

Celebrity and Ritz Hotel

By: Sandy


Reviewed on: 08 Feb 2018

Our advisor is Denise Sullivan with Alfred Volden's "All World Travel" agency. She was great to work with! We love the credit and upgade the Ritz Hotel on Ft Lauderdale beach gave us due to Virtuosa! We enjoyed that hotel so much! The Celebrity cruise was also wonderful! It was a more mature audience of people, quieter, and actually less crowded for the shows and dinner than the larger ships for Royal Caribbean. We do like the Royal Caribbean large ships because of their long jogging track and Starbucks and the little winery place and the numerous specialty restaurants. But we are open to new adventures and can't wait to meet with Denise this month!
