My Background

I have a passion for cultural and adventure travel as well as customized itineraries! I officially began my travel career after graduating from college with a marketing degree in 1999. My first role was as a travel advisor. I was then hired by The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island as the Travel Industry Sales Manager from 2003-2005. I am happy to be back in the agency as co-owner and travel advisor! 

I am an Aussie Specialist, South African Specialist, yachtalist and honeymoon/destination wedding specialist. I am a believer that travel is an amazing education and also believe the phrase "boundaries divide, travel unites".

The planning of th trip was not done as easily as I had hoped. There were many mistakes made by the European travel agency that was used through Virtuoso (bucher) They omitted important excursions in the planning and submitted etimate that omited some costs. They did do a good job on the paperwork, tickets and reservations at the end and the trip itself was seamless. I would not recommend them to plan another trip. Angela tried very hard to get us through the process, although we didnt finalize everyting until about a week prior to the trip.

Awesome experience in Portugal

We took the Mountain Travel Sobek Walking the Route of Historic Villages tour. It was fantastic and we would recommend it for anyone who likes an active adventure that is moderately strenuous. We saw some beautiful remote historic hill villages as well as stunning mountain scenary. Our tour leaders, Artur and Marianna were gracious, knowledgeable and helpful. MTS also specializes in small group tours which we feel makes the experience more rewarding.

Found the perfect hotel for our visit to Barcelona. Utilized Spanish VCS company to provide two private auto tours in the area, both of which were very well done with friendly and courteous drivers. Provided information on Barcelona attractions and also for ports-of-call for subsequent Mediterranean cruise. Top notch counselor.

Expert, Friendly, and Professional!

By: Beach Folks

My husband and I discovered Wallace Pierson (then "The Travel Agency") five years ago, and now would not plan a trip without them. Angela and the staff are knowledgeable, resourceful, friendly, and accessible. I actually try not to send e-mails outside of normal business hours because I KNOW they will be answered immediately. Their recommendations can be trusted, and their worldwide network of resources is invaluable. I also know that they are available if we have an issue while on a trip. That hasn't happened yet, but we appreciate knowing they are always there. We have recommended Angela and her fellow Wallace Pierson staff to all of our friends, and will certainly continue to do so.

This was a wonderful trip. We came back very tired but satisfied that we had accomplished and learned so much. The naturalists were outstanding. The staff on the ship were always friendly and helpful. The food on the ship was good but not the best we ever had. We did realize as the the trip progressed that the Ecuadorian government does restrict what is served on the ship. All in all it is a trip we will never forget. We will certainly recommend it to people we feel are capable of making it.

Angela and her team are professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. We appreciate the advantages of access to Virtuoso amenities, and have not yet been disappointed by any of the features or properties. The Wallace-Pierson staff travel extensively, and we also appreciate their candid advice regarding travel locations and venues. We would not think of planning an overseas trip -- or ANY trip that involves any complexity -- without their expert guidance.

Travel advisor review

By: Tom

Reviewed on: 04 Jun 2017

She was helpful when we asked questions. There needed to be more discussion concerning our flights and seating. For example, our frequent flyer numbers were not entered with the airline and we had to have them entered ourselves on our first leg of the trip. Also, our seating preferences were not discussed and consequently we ended up in the middle seats on a wide plane for over 5 hours. We began the trip a day early and all the side trips that were recommended by our travel agent were hundreds of dollars per person. We found, on our own, a day trip for less then $60.00 for the two of us.

Machu Picchu & Galápagos

By: Rose B.

Reviewed on: 19 May 2018

Great, Angela set up our Peru experience with a private guide. She knew our interest was hiking and they delivered. Hiked Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. Also, at the last minute when our flight was changed to include a 4 hour layover in Quito, Ecuador...she got us on a direct flight to arrive in Guayaquil for our Expedition tour. Next, was our journey with Lindblad/National Geographic Cruise. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting the full experience of the Galápagos. The expedition leader and naturalist were outstanding. A clean and comfortable boat and seamless excursions that put us up close and personal to sea lions, penguins, giant tortoises, blue and red footed boobies...such a fabulous trip!

Angela gets an A+ for her work with us! We had very specific and eclectic requests to make our vacation work and she accommodated every requirement flawlessly! Our itinerary was difficult to work with. We flew into Milan, trained to Switzerland, returned to Italy to visit numerous highlights and ended our journey flying to Spain to return Stateside. Our First Class Rail accommodations where one of the many great experiences of our trip. The hotel accommodations, private cars and prearranged tours where all superb. She handled all our needs exquisitely!

Angela Pierson and Wallace Pierson Travel are outstanding!!

By: The Hampton Family

Reviewed on: 01 Jul 2019

Angela Pierson was incredible to work with. I had a dream of a special anniversary trip to Italy with my wife and 4 adult children (no easy feat to organize!) My daughter and sat down with her 7 months before our trip. We each had our own ideas as to what we wanted to see and do. Angela was able to combine our ideas into a trip that was memorable and all that we had hoped for! She is professional, kind, and very intuitive. She knows the ins and outs of travel and created unique and breathtaking day trips and events! It was wonderful!

Not Recommended

Finished with this Travel Agency

By: Debra

Reviewed on: 25 Aug 2019

We will no longer use the services of this travel agency We have no confidence in this company. On our last trip, our frequent flyer info. was not entered and the agency booked us the worst seats on the plane after stating where we wanted to sit. This trip - worse. Our Tauck info. never came so we contacted the agency and the tour books were sitting on the owner's desk and she was away. I asked the worker if she had my new mailing address since we had moved since our last trip, two years prior. She took all the information and the books were mailed to the wrong address anyway! For our free day before this trip began we asked for help with a day trip. The owner quoted us a day trip for $6,000!! We told everyone we know about her costs! Word got back to her and she contacted us and said she was sorry. She would find us a side trip. Problem - we were already in Scotland ready to leave in two hours on the side trip I planned with Viator. DONE with the incompetence of this company!
