My Background

This is my second career, and has become my life's passion (besides my family of course). I truly cannot wait to get to my office each day. I love learning about the world, its diverse cultures and incredible natural beauty. Most importantly. i am fascinated by the opportunity to meet people and make friends in every corner of the earth. Being a Travel Advisor affords me all of these opportunities, and the ability to pass on my passion and newly found knowledge to my clients.

Highest Recommendation / Excellent Experience

By: Dr Ben

Reviewed on: 15 Aug 2013

Michael Kahan's Travel Planned our honeymoon perfectly. His attention to detail specifically with choice hotels, setting up transfers including train tickets, water taxis, and private car service exceeded our expectations. He was a pleasure to work with, returning calls, emails almost immediately. He clearly cares about his customers and I will be recommending him to all my associates. I will work with him again.

Best Travel Agent Ever

By: D & C

Reviewed on: 21 Sep 2013

Michael has perfected the art of the travel agent, and for over 5 years now has sent my wife and I, and many of our closest family and friends, on vacations we could have not dreamed up. We have come to expect our expectations to be exceeded anytime we work with Michael to book a trip, and never have they not been. No longer do we even consider booking a long trip or even just a weekend getaway without his expert guidance.

Highly Recommened - I won't use anyone else ever again!

Everything was taken care of, down the the smallest detail. Even complicated room arrangements and touring prefers were booked and scheduled perfectly. I always received an immediate response, even while traveling and I had a question. The amenities were perfect from breakfast, to chocolates in the room. What a great trip...and we took six flights and drove 3,000 miles, all without a problem. Thank you for organizing an unforgettable European Grand Tour.

I was introduced to Michael Kahan through a mutual friend who was planning a destination wedding in Antigua. Michael was extremely helpful throughout the process and went above and beyond to make sure that my wife and I were satisfied. I have been booking all of my travel with Michael ever since and he always seems to get me the best prices and amenities.

Michael Kahan created a perfect vacation to France

By: Susan and Barry

Hi From our initial thoughts about taking a vacation to France, to our return home, Michael planned the most perfect trip. His suggestions, advice, and guidance helped us wade though all our possible options. His knowledge and experience was priceless! Michael booked everything for us. After the trip, Michael was extremely interested in our "feedback." We didn't have much to say, except the word PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been using the Park Avenue Travel Agency for over 5 years now and will NEVER go anywhere else! Their level of professionalism, knowledge and personal service has not been matched by anyone that I have dealt with in the travel business. Down to the smallest of details, they will take care of everything so, if you are looking for the perfect vacation, call them. You will not be be disappointed!

Michael helped us plan an All Inclusive trip to Paradise Palma Real in Punta Cana. He took care of flights, insurance, hotel rooms and even communicating with the hotel about dinner reservations. When we were hit with bad weather Michael contacted us via email and was prepared to make alternate travel plans if necessary. Would highly recommend Michael for his attentive service.

Michael Kahan and the Kahan Travel Group were wonderful to work with in planning and executing my family vacation in Central America.

Michael Kahan thought of everything.  From our seat assignment on the plane, to the private boat transfers, everything went smoothly.  All details were thought of and taken care of.  Spa appointments made, dinner reservation taken care of which led to fabulous meals and terrific family time together.  We didn't think about anything except enjoying ourselves and the sand and the sea.  Fabulous trip in Anguilla.

5 star service and 5 star experience

By: Rachel1103

Reviewed on: 08 Aug 2014

Michael and his team are star quality. Michael organised a fabulous and memorable trip to Istanbul and Israel for my sister and me. Michael is so personable and knows all of the right questions to ask in order to better understand the experience you are looking for. Once he has this information he comes up with amazing itineraries and options from which you can choose. He does not leave that daunting task of making all the decisions yourself. If you want his help he is always there for you. If you are very decisive he allows you to be as independent as you would like. The holiday we want on was brilliant. He chose the best hotels and tours that met our needs 100%. Everything went so smoothly and was meticulously organised. His pre trip planning and travel package made this wonderful experience even better. I would recommend Michael and his team to anyone looking for a holiday of a lifetime. We will be utilising his services for all of our trips.

Great trip to Italy planned by Michael & Elyse!

By: Jamie530

Reviewed on: 07 Sep 2014

Michael and Elyse planned an awesome trip to Italy for my husband Jeremy and me (after planning an awesome honeymoon in Hawaii the year before)! Not only did they recommend awesome hotels, but planned all of our transfers, activities, and dinner reservations as well. Michael and Elyse went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of. Michael even went as far to call us in the middle of the night when he realized our flight was moved up, to make sure we didn't oversleep. We know that we are always in great hands with Michael, and have consistently recommended him to friends for their upcoming trips!

Wonderful Trip!

My husband and I worked with Michael for our honeymoon trip to Barcelona, Spain. He spent so much time with us, offering extensive overviews of our hotel options, suggested activities and travel insurance. We were so happy with both hotels, all the activities and the transfers to and from the airport. It was a fantastic trip! When a slight glitch came up with one hotel, Michael was very responsive and got everything resolved right away while we were out enjoying the city! We'll definitely use his services again in the future. Thank you!

Everything to perfection!
