Dean Kato

World Travel Agency, LLC, an independent affiliate of Andavo Travel
Bellevue, WA United States

I've traveled for most of life, half for business as a VP of International Business Development and half for pleasure, exploring much of the world with my wife Sharleen. I've put in about 4 million air miles to date, plus a dozen cruises, to over 60 countries. Traveling well is a personal passion.

I've led many trips to Japan, Korea, The Philippines, and the Middle East. The goal of each trip is to leave our travelers wanting more time abroad. Having lived in Hawaii, I have a Kama'aina perspective on how to travel to the islands and am a Certified Hawaii Destination Expert. I'm also a NAUI certified SCUBA instructor; let me know if you'd like to dive Ni'ihau.

At World Travel Agency, our goal is to provide authentic, immersive experiences for our clients; to understand what's important to each traveler and to exceed expectations. We do this in a very hands-on, proactive way, working to anticipate the needs and desires of our clients.

In addition to individual travel experiences anywhere in the world, we focus on group travel and look forward to coordinating many trips of a lifetime with you.
