My Background

Tom Gehrels has worked as a travel adviser since 1992 and has visited nearly 100 countries. He believes it is important for a travel adviser to have personal experience in each destination.

Using that personal experience Tom will craft the perfect itinerary for you - be it a luxury safari in Africa, an expedition cruise to the polar regions, a cultural discovery of a far-flung destination such as India, Vietnam or Peru, or a comfortable active holiday anywhere on the planet.

Using an extensive network of specialist tour operators Tom will make sure that every detail of your holiday is taken care off and you will come back feeling you have had an authentic experience.

We've been working with Tom for over 10 years and he has never disappointed us. He takes the time to learn our likes and dislikes and really get to know us so each trip we plan gets easier and easier because we trust Tom to make amazing choices for us that align with what we like and want! We highly recommend Tom's services!

Safari in Tanzania

Tom planned an amazing holiday for us, yet again! He is so aware of the details and makes sure that our pick-ups and drop-offs, our guides, the trip, the food and accommodations are top notch! This is our third vacation that Tom planned for us and every time I am impressed. I feel that he takes care of us as if we were his family. We had a last minute problem and needed his help with buying travel insurance for another trip prior to the safari (that he did not plan). There were 10 people in our family traveling together and he arranged for travel insurance within hours of leaving for the holiday. He makes everything trouble-fee for us and eases our minds when traveling.

Tom provides informed advice or gets information from pertinent agency/travel provider in a very timely matter. In addition he sends a list of books and movies to study before the trip. Very useful.

Thank you

We had a long conversation with Tom trying to figure out where to go and he was quick to make some interesting observations and recommendations. It was a good match for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our time on Complete Patagonia with Tucan tours. Tom was available for questions prior to the adventure and we will recommend him to others in the future.

Tom take straightforward approach with just right answers and no BS whatsoever. He works with enormous speed and I have a feeling that he is by me while planning the trip. Whenever he travels, he assigns substitute or letting know when he is back. I feel I have a friend in him.
