My recent trip to Mexico!
I'm Lia Hershkovitz, I have been in the travel industry for over 15 years and have extensive knowledge in planning incredible and memorable vacations. Originally from Israel (feel free to contact me in Hebrew!), I moved to Canada 15 years ago to make the beautiful city of Vancouver my home.
Like many of you, I have an insatiable passion for travel. It is something that I genuinely believe opens doors, expands the mind, and enriches life unlike just about anything else. That’s why I have chosen to dedicate much of my life to travelling and learning more about our incredible planet.
Throughout my life, I’ve spent time exploring countless countries across Asia, The Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, discovering some life-changing places and people along the way. Over the last 15 years, I have also helped travelers experience the joy of travel through Guide Me Away.
My philosophy is that travel should be a personal, unique, and enlightening adventure, opening doors to other cultures and diverse ways of life.
As a member of the gay community, I understand first-hand the importance of being open and accepting of others, and how it can benefit you, as well as those around you. I always make sure that our tours are tailored to you, and that our travelers get to see a real representation of the places they visit – something that can easily be missed on more mainstream vacations.
Through my passion for travel, I have built strong relationships with some world-class suppliers and gained the industry credentials* to help me build your perfect trip, every time.
In the end, my goal is simply to make people happy, so that’s what Guide Me Away is all about. I and the team look forward to helping you enjoy the experience of a lifetime.
