My Background

Having owned my own Travel Agency for 17 years, I have been fortunate enough to have traveled the globe. I am passionate about travel. I love experiencing new places, meeting the people, learning about other cultures, the food and did I mention shopping?

My attention to every detail makes me good at what I do. I love working with my clients to help their travel dreams come true.

After selling my agency is 2008 I created "Destinations by Judy" an exclusive affiliate of Cadence in La Jolla, CA.

My long term affiliation with Virtuoso has allowed me to meet and visit the key contacts at the Hotels and experience firsthand the Tour Companies that I use for my clients.

I have built excellent relationships and contacts throughout the world, which enables me to offer my clients the best service, the best accommodations including upgraded rooms and special amenities.

It is exciting to plan such amazing, life changing experiences and to enjoy the enthusiasm and stories of my clients adventures!

Leave the Planning to an Expert

This was our first major trip to Europe, four cities in Italy with flights, train trips, rental cars and hotel reservations and transportation. From the planning stages to the days before our trip Judy was everything we could ask for. Her recommendations to enhance our itinerary were right on. But more importantly, her planning and execution was seamless. The hotels were great, and all the vouchers and itinerary instructions provided us a worry free vacation while giving us the flexibility to see and enjoy all the site we chose along the way. Not only would I recommend Judy as a travel agent, I plan on using her on any further trips we make.

Expert at details

Our trip to the Galápagos and Peru was outstanding. It was a very strenuous trip due to a lot of internal travel. Every detail was perfect. The guides were friendly and punctual. It was like being in a living history museum full of,passion and vibrant color for two weeks. Machu Picchu was just one of many sites we enjoyed during the journey. Judy did a fabulous job.

I would highly reccomend Judy Schwartz for all of your travel needs. She's the best travel agent I've ever worked with. She was able to help me get the best prices and the quickest way to my destination. I was going from Los Angeles to Dubai to India. She coordinated my hotels, travel to and from the airports and an amazing Safari Tour. Judy is the best in the business and I had an amazing trip thanks to her!!!

Judy doesn't miss a beat. She is well travelled herself and makes great recommendations on tours and hotels. We had to cut our trip short due to a family emergency. Judy went above and beyond to get us home with as little stress as possible. She is my "go to gal" for all my travel and I would highly recommend her.
