Europe, S. America & All incl package specialist

                   40 Years Planning Trips to Europe, South America & rest of the World
The rewards of travel are endless. There's always something new and exciting to learn when you are visiting a new destination, and there's always an experience available that can change your life and fill it with with wonderful memories.


Through my personal and professional travel experiences I have:


Visited Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro close up from a helicopter
Viewed monuments throughout Europe that represent the beginnings of modern civilization.
Reconnected Hungarian family members before and after the Iron Curtain was lifted
Planned many dream vacations throught the world for families in Canada and overseas.


I have been in the travel industry for more than 40 years, and I specialize in the following destinations:


• Europe — My career in travel began by booking our firm's own charter flights from Canada to Western and Eastern Europe during the 1970s, and I have always loved this historic continent. My own interest in Greek and Roman civilizations spawned my desire to travel to Europe, and my personal experiences there allow me to create expert itineraries for my clients. I have traveled across most of the continent, and have utilized planes, buses and trains in order to get from one place to another.

• South America — The Continent of South America is my backyard, and I like to show my clients the magic and beauty of this part of the world. I was born and  raised in Uruguay, and traveled frequently as a child to visit my grandparents in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I fell in love with travel by exploring South America.


During the last four decades, I have earned many certifications for destinations across the globe. I regularly participate in training opportunities and seminars in order to enhance my skills and stay abreast of the latest changes in the industry. I am fluent in English, Spanish and Hungarian, which allows me to provide excellent service to all of my customers.


"Live for today, because tomorrow may never come." This is the quote that I try to live by, because one truly never knows what the future holds for us...


Take the opportunity to travel today, and contact me to begin planning your next vacation wherever that might be.

I am proud of the many referrals and testimonials

Buenos Aires, beautiful, cosmopolitan, the Paris o
Buenos Aires, beautiful, cosmopolitan, the Paris o

that I receive from many longtime clients.

Here is one as an example :

Thank you so much for all your help in getting me back to the old country every time.
I really appreciate it and am glad that I have you to turn to for all my travel needs.

Have a great day,


Karin M.

Great agent helps every time

Reviewed By Maria - Canada Lethbridge | Traveled to
Whenever I phone him, he is happy to help me right away. He calls back very quickly and is very helpful in all aspects of finding a tourist destination. At least 2 or 3 times of the year I talk to him to get deals. He is more than helpful even if sometimes the deals he has aren't as cheap as some other websites, but he understands and doesn't mind and will help find me the cheapest prices possible. I highly recommend him to any one. I am happy with his service and will be using him again in the future.
