My Background

A traveler at heart, I have visited well over 70 countries around the world, and seeing new places never gets old. Aside from being a travel agent, I am also a licensed attorney that understands the value of time for myself and my clients. I worked as a tour operator in Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia & Herzegovina for approximately 6 years, but that is only one of many regions where I have expertise. Luxury travel is my specialty, but I have also spent a lot of time traveling on a budget, so I know how to find the best budget-conscious travel solutions as well.

Stephen did a great job getting a somewhat complex set of two business trips to two different places for two different clients of mine combined and seamless. And all the flights worked out beautifully. Thanks!

Great client service!

Fantastic Honeymoon Under Budget

By: Honeymooner

Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2016

I contacted Stephen George to help put together a honeymoon for myself and my bride to be. He asked a few questions about what we were looking for and really seemed to care about what kind of trip we wanted without just throwing a canned vacation at us. We changed our minds halfway through on locations and we threw a few curveballs at him but he handled it like a pro. Now we have an amazing itinerary, and we came in plenty under the budget that I gave him. We are so excited and we would definitely work with Stephen again.

Outstanding advice and service!

Absolutely Amazing!

By: Rachel

Reviewed on: 18 Aug 2017

Stephen George was absolutely fantastic to work with. He did everything he could do make our special vacation one to remember. This was a last minute booking, but it didn't stop Stephen from making every moment easy and comfortable. He was there start to finish, from offering suggestions on where to go, to giving us several options for river cruises and destinations and flights, ending with checking in with us AFTER the cruise to make sure everything was as we had hoped. We even asked a few random questions before our trip, and Stephen was happy to promptly answer every one. And he got us a great deal! What more can you ask for?? Thanks to Stephen, we enjoyed a relaxing, memorable two week honeymoon on the beautiful Danube. It's exactly what we were looking for. If you want a 5 star, first class level of service, stick with Stephen George. He'll take care of you.

Amazing vacation and amazing service!

Stephen George is exceptional. After going back and forth with about 100 different location options, my husband and I finally settled on a last minute vacation. With very little time, Stephen was able to book an amazing vacation even with some unexpected upgrades. He is patient and thorough, with an amazing knowledge of many exotic and local vacation options. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a vacation. -Katharine

Best agent ever!

By: Esteban Ayen

Reviewed on: 02 Nov 2018

Best agent ever! Our trip was really a once in a lifetime experience. Our guide was fantastic, traveling the streets of Saigon on his motorbike. I really don’t think there is a better way to see the city. And going down the Mekong river, experiencing the local culture and all it has to offer was great. And to top it off, we took an authentic market tour and cooking class. So! Much! Fun! Stephen made it so easy to enjoy our trip and it really felt authentic.
