My Background

Growing up behind the Iron Curtain, I didn't have the faintest hope of ever seeing the world beyond. Moving from one end of the vast Soviet Union to the other every few years with my military family put the thirst of travel deep into my curious mind and restless soul. I lived in Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Germany. I have taken the TransSiberian railroad, found amber on the shores on the Baltic Sea, dipped my toe into the waters of Lake Baikal, waved at a seagull from the Swallows Nest in Crimea and much more.

My memories of not being allowed to travel beyond the Soviet Union border have driven me to explore every corner of the world. I deeply appreciate the opportunity to freely travel throughout the world and encourage my clients to explore new destinations.

I have been in the travel business for over 18 years and can arrange any type of trip you can imagine. With my special contacts, I can arrange a private dinner in a typical Ukrainian home, a tour of the WWII battlefields around Stalingrad or a walk in St. Petersburg following the footsteps of Fyodor Dostoevsky.

I also arrange romantic trips and honeymoons, train and self drive trips in Europe, book luxury river and ocean cruises in Europe, Caribbean and South America. Whatever your travel dream is, I can make it a reality!

The best trip of my life

By: Texas-two

Reviewed on: 08 Oct 2013

Lana was very wonderful to work with. She was very attentive to my needs and provided recommendations that were very useful. Her summary agenda and documentation were perfect. All events and logistics were detailed out and executed properly. The hotels and lodgings met and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her to make your travel plans.

Lana has planned trips to Europe for our entire family. She brings much common sense to the process and demonstrates a caring spirit where younger members of the family are traveling alone to new places. She is practical and understands our travel budget as well as what we want to enjoy and experience. She knows the destinations or gets input from those who do. I make sure not to lose her contact information....couldn't travel very far without her...

Lana did such a wonderful job planning our recent trip to Bermuda.  She put together a very nice travel packet and took care of all the little details, including having a little gift for us in the room:)  I look forward to working with her again.

Our "Fairy Travel-Mother"

By: Dr. and Mrs. Debeaux

Lana has been tremendously helpful in all aspects of our trip.  Not only did she thoughtfully work with us to plan out our extended itinerary, and accommodate several changes (both ours and because of unforeseen events), but she has also been a great help and our advocate when things have gone wrong throughout our journey.  A substantial part of our trip has been in Greece, where many things have not been as advertised! One hotel, in particular, was incredibly disappointing, with a misleading website. We contacted Lana and she immediately made sure the hotel righted its wrongs, and thanks to her, our trip got back on track.  She has been an invaluable resource and we would not have been able to take this trip without her advice, organization, and kindness.

Lana Lewis is an absolute professional who is extremely knowledgeable about her industry.  She has been our exclusive travel agent for more than four years now booking holidays for my husband and me as well as for our family group vacations and continues to meet or exceed our expectations.  We are seasoned travelers having been to countries throughout the world and have been most pleased with Lana as our travel agent professional.  Last week, we enjoyed a romantic couples holiday at Excellence Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic where all of the requests submitted by Lana on our behalf were honored and the property was amazing.  She is a top notch travel industry professional!  Thanks

Lana was very helpful for our trip.  All of our travel arrangements were easy and well timed.  The accommodations were beautiful, comfortable, and in a great part of town for us to base our touring.  She balanced our preferences for independent travel with her suggestions for activities that suited our family well.  I plan on using her again.

We have been working with Lana for many years. She has arranged almost every trip of ours. Every time it has been the best. With Lana we know everything will be arranged the way we want it. She is very reliable and friendly. She is a pro. That's the main quality of all we care for when we want to have a safe and pleasant trip. We will continue to work with Lana and we always recommend her to our friends.Thank you, Lana.

Our schedule was good. We had no problems coordinating with drivers, tour guides and the like. In fact, the guide in Lisbon was outstanding. The cruise was excellent, weather was great and London was its usual self (except it was rather cool). We will call Lana in the next ay or so and talk about it in detail, but it was a very good tour experience.

Lana was the epitome of expert professionalism in all things travel related. She helped me with flights and travel insurance to Bali and was very responsive to my varied needs and interests. I had peace of mind knowing she would be available to help if travel plans went awry. Fortunately, my flights and connections were seamless, I highly recommend her as a travel consultant.

Beyond Expectation!

By: Travel Gypsy

Reviewed on: 31 Aug 2016

Lana helped coordinate a recent trip to Norway that more than met expectation. Her suggestions were always helpful but, even better, she listened to what we wanted / did not want in a 14 day trip. Best suggestion she made was to take a northbound cruise. Fjord cruise was relaxing yet offered enough stops, expeditions, and amazing views to eliminate any thought of boredom. Will continue to use Lana's services again in the future and recommend her to anyone planning a trip.

This is not the first trip that Lana planned for us. She is very accommodating to your "needs and wants" and always goes out of her way to "make your dreams come true". Our October trip to St. Martin was absolutely fabulous and Lana made it happen. She went out of her way to work in a very pressing timeline and made sure that our comfort was a priority, she also volunteered to make a phone call regarding my husband's health condition and that really made all the difference during our travel. I appreciate everything you do for our family to have the best possible vacation year after year. Thanks.

Working with Lana was easy and helpful as always! We stayed at the Amandari and Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, which are very different properties, at her suggestion. Both were absolutely wonderful and staying at both made for a more well rounded trip. I felt we were set up by Lana with the right space and best service at each.

Best Travel Agent Ever!

By: Ruthann

Reviewed on: 25 Oct 2017

My husband and I have been working with Lana for over 10 years. Her work is fantastic! Ken usually made the arrangements, but now I do. She is so very careful and detailed oriented I never have to worry about a thing. Plus she is always conscious of the things that as a seasoned traveler and advisor she knows and I don't. So she graciously passes them on to me. Her knowledge sure makes for a relaxed, enjoyable trip for me. Thanks for another great trip!

Lana was great to work with. We were able to get tickets to a Chelsea football game, tickets to see Aladdin, tours for two days to outlying parts of England and a great hotel! She was also very knowledgeable about the area, how to move about, where to get the best rates on money exchange, how much to tip, etc. Our trip was wonderful!
