One of the most common misconceptions about travel advisors is that we’re just transactional agents – you tell us where you want to go, they book your flights, and off you go. And while we are definitely logistics pros, there’s so much more when you work with a professional travel advisor. From that first spark of an idea until long after a trip is finished, our travel advisors are by your side. We are collaborators, curators, and confidantes, doing everything from building custom itineraries to calling our hotelier friends in Paris, Nairobi, Istanbul, Tel Aviv, or Miami to get you the suite with the very best view of the Eiffel Tower. We discuss your travel style, must-haves, wish list, and every other important detail that we will need to know!
My passion is Africa, all of Africa. It’s a place for families, reunions, friends traveling together, the physically challenged, religious, everyone. We all go to Africa to see the “Big Five”; we return because of the people. In today’s travel, we want experiences. No longer do we just want to be a bystander.
We want to learn about the country we are visiting, the people we are meeting, and why the animals interact the way they are. We want to protect the countries we are visiting, not destroy them. Africa does it better than any place on Earth. The standards are higher; the rules are more stringent. I have learned that one safari program does not fit all, and it is important that I determine which one is right for you. I have escorted small groups since 1980, using this same premise so that my clients come home with knowledge, not just pictures. Whether traveling to Southern Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, or any of the other African countries, I have taken the time to learn about each one individually. I could never get that information from the Internet. It takes commitment, time, and effort to make sure that your trip fulfills your dreams. That’s what I pride myself on. Call me to start the discussion about your safari.

That’s a question people have been asking for as long as I can remember. I have a credo of always going the extra mile and never backing down from an adventure. Life is made richer by the remarkable experiences we have along the way.
As a surfer and skier, this philosophy has taken me from rugged to resort. Whether it’s in the mountains, islands, jungles, or deserts, my goal has always been the same: get out there, get lost, always stay safe, and always come back with incredible stories. My best are the ones about escaping riot police in Jakarta and standing on tanks in the Kremlin while getting caught in those countries’ revolutions.
Now, as a father of three boys and with the responsibility of keeping Kosher, I am keenly aware of the challenges of putting together a fantastic family adventure.
I am here, available to share my expertise to help you to get out there and build your own. Together we can craft your next great adventure tale.
In my 36 years in the travel industry, I have traveled to all 7 continents (Antarctica 4 times) and 253 countries on the Travelers’ Century Club list.I specialize in Asia, having traveled there extensively, and Africa, having been on safari more than 20 times. I lived in Egypt for a number of years and knew and loved the country well.
Cruising is one of the most wonderful aspects of travel, and I have been on 151 cruises and hosted 55 cruises for Virtuoso Voyager Club, including 5 World Cruises. I am eager to share my vast experience and welcome the opportunity to make travel special for my clients.
I’ve been booking travel for over 10 years; while I can work on experiences all over the world, I myself have traveled extensively in Italy, Africa, the Caribbean, Mexico, France, the U.K., Greece, and the U.S. I tend to specialize in adventure-based itineraries and cruising. I think of travel as education itself; to experience the beauty, the culture, the taste and smell, and the magnificence of the world, you need to JUST do it.
In some ways, it’s the best money you can invest. In these challenging times, it’s best to solicit a knowledgeable person who will help navigate the changing landscape that is happening on a daily basis. I planned an Ireland tour for a family of four, including different activities for each teenager (sports/music) and a dog/sheep exhibit because they’re all pet lovers. It was an overwhelming success. This is what I can do for you. I love giving back, and it’s so easy to incorporate volunteerism into an itinerary where you interact with the locals and help with different endeavors, i.e., help with bringing water to a village. “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
With over 30 years of experience in travel and management services, I have visited the world’s top cities, luxury hotels, and exotic destinations many times over the years. I have extensive cruise experience, including sailing on Silversea, Seabourn, and Regent. My passion is planning a true 5-star experience suited to your individual needs.I am detail-oriented, experienced, and a service-oriented advisor.
Whether planning a cruise, safari, or a city escape, I have the skills, knowledge, and resources to make your journey a truly memorable one.
I assist Marcia Hochberg in booking air travel for her corporate clients, hotels and resorts for leisure clients, and all other needs of Marcia’s clients.
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1993. My passion for travel started when I was little, and for school vacation, I was going with my family to different places. First, we started learning about our own country; then, we started traveling internationally. In 2012, I moved to Miami, started working as a luxury travel advisor in 2015, and loved it so much that I decided that I will do this forever.I like to work on any type of trip and destination, but my specialties are honeymoons or anniversaries and family travel.
I know Africa, South East Asia, Israel, and Italy, and they are my favorite destinations to plan for a wonderful travel.
I have traveled the world by land and sea. My clients rely on me to plan worry-free vacations. I work with all budgets and travel dreams.
What a lucky lady I am! I have been traveling since I was 20 years old and have been almost anywhere in the world that I have ever wanted to visit, definitely every continent. I love all of the “A” places the best! Asia, Africa, the Arctic, and all of the Americas. I love helping clients plan their dream trips and making their wishes a reality.
Born in Tel Aviv and raised in Hollywood, FL, I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor’s in Hospitality Management. I’ve had a passion for travel since I was a little girl when my parents started taking me on cruises around the Caribbean. Growing up in South Florida, I have been around the beach all my life, and the vastness of the ocean never ceases to amaze me.
. As I have gotten older, my curiosity has grown to explore other places in the world, especially Asia and Central and South America. One of my favorite accomplishments was hiking up a dormant volcano in Costa Rica with an incredible lagoon on top that I swam in. In my free time, you can find me scouring the Internet for interesting things to do in whatever place I may be curious about at the time. My friends always ask me, “Where are you off to next?” and I hope that I always have an answer to that question. My ultimate goal is to travel around the world and gain extensive knowledge so that I am able to come back and help you create great experiences with memories that will last you a lifetime. “I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.'” – Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
The day I stepped onto my first flight aboard Pan Am as a child, I fell in love with traveling and knew it would shape my future. Exploring new destinations is my passion, and I am always traveling the globe in pursuit of new places to further educate myself in order to plan your perfect vacation. Born and raised in the south of France, I have a love for the French Riviera and am fluent in French.
. I moved to the United States in high school, and following my love of travel, I became an international flight attendant. Some of my favorite memories are seeing the pyramids of Egypt, walking the Great Wall of China, and snorkeling the beautiful reefs of Palau. The Hawaiian Islands hold a special place in my heart; their beauty is unforgettable. Not only do I love taking photos of beautiful places, but I also look forward to immersing myself in different cultures. My husband and I have three children, and the travels we have taken together as a family have been enriching not only in memories but also in education. Whatever destination you are dreaming of, I can help you plan the trip of a lifetime or a weekend getaway. With my travel experience, I will ensure you have an unforgettable vacation, whether it be to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris or somewhere on the road less traveled.
Traveling, whether as a family or as a couple, is my passion. I am thrilled to share that passion with others. I use my experience and the resources available to me to craft the best-tailored vacation for my clients. My husband and I make up a great team to handle any request. Let us help you with your next great dream adventure.
After planning my own family vacations and helping friends with theirs, I decided that my passion for travel should be a career. I cater to luxury leisure travel for individuals and couples, as well as high-end business travel for executives. I believe that travel should help heal and enrich your life, so I love doing leg work, thus allowing people to truly relax and enjoy every moment.
My own frequent travels and those I’ve been privileged to plan span six continents, with my favorite destinations being Russia and Easter Island.
If you’re anything like me, you have a strong desire to travel, and you want your experiences to be memorable. I’ve started planning travel in 1995; then, I took a hiatus to raise my kids and traveled with them extensively throughout 5 continents, which has helped me tremendously in creating tailor-made experiences all over the world for my clients.
I’ve experienced many 4- & 5-star resorts, and I take all notes necessary and just love everything involved with travel planning, especially finding the places that only locals know and love! I know your leisure time is valuable; I’m here to help you get the most of it with the least amount of your own time invested in making that happen. I’ll take care of every detail, and you can just show up and enjoy an incredible time with your family! My specialties include honeymoons, couples’ and friends’ getaways, and family vacations. Food, wine, & history tours in Italy, island hopping in Greece, skiing in Switzerland and Colorado, pub hopping in Ireland, safaris in South Africa, exploring amazing Israel, swimming with sharks in Moorea, snorkeling in Bora Bora, sailing in the Caribbean, and of course, my hometown, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, are just some of my favorites. What’s yours? I don’t just book trips; I create memorable experiences! It will be my pleasure to partner with you to create an incredible experience!
With a B.A. in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, Marcia embarked on her second career in the travel industry twenty-six years ago. She was fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel extensively in Europe, the Far East, and Asia because of her husband’s business involvements.
Due to this exposure, she has personal experiences to draw from when planning travel to many foreign destinations. Marcia handles corporate as well as leisure accounts and has as much knowledge of independent travel as she does cruises and tours.
Traveling for 3 months through Europe on $10/day after college was the beginning of my love affair with adventures in travel. Every day was full of wonder! Since then, my own travels have always included a quest for the extraordinary. I view travel as an investment in our well-being. Nobody comes back from a journey untouched by the experience!
That is why I love helping others plan travel adventures – when you see the world through a new lens, step outside your comfort zone, experience new things, and meet new people, it challenges you to embrace the differences that make the world so colorful. Travel will enrich and invigorate you and is a wonderful gift you can give yourself and your loved ones! My passion is custom milestone/celebration travel for individuals and families. Whether it’s a big birthday, a honeymoon, an anniversary, a recent promotion, or a special family vacation, I can put together an itinerary to keep everyone happy. How about a bike/hike adventure in the U.S. or Ireland; a wine and food tour in Italy, Spain, France, or South America; a beach vacation in Hawaii, Mexico, or the Caribbean; or a multi-gen cruise to Alaska, Greece, or the Mediterranean? I offer extraordinary client service and pride myself on getting to know the hidden gems and special touches that can make a vacation personal, seamless, and unique. In this age of information overload, it is both smart and valuable to have a travel advisor who knows how to navigate through all the noise and find the perfect property, cruise, or tour that will help find you extraordinary!
One of my most favorite travel quotes is, “Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.” When folks ask me what they should bring back from their travels, I tell them, “a good story!” Attention to detail is my strength, coming from a background in marketing and consumer connections.
My micro approach to travel planning feeds my need to dive into every element of your trip to make the right connections between you and your dream journey. Whether you have just a few vacation days or unlimited time for that longed-for trip, you want to live it, breathe it, and tell everyone your perfect story.
Dream. Explore. Discover. As a child growing up in New Jersey, I valued each and every family vacation we took and fell in love with traveling. I instilled that value into my own family, and exploring the world with our children became a top priority and has been the perfect blend of education and fun. Now, after 40+ years of traveling, it only seemed natural to pursue a career as a travel advisor.
As it is important to me to constantly keep updated on destinations and properties in order to provide my clients with the best information, I attend many seminars and study tours on a regular basis. I am passionate about helping clients plan their dream vacations, exploring the world, and making fabulous memories. Whether it is a quick weekend getaway, family vacation, or special occasion trip, I would love to assist you in planning your dream experience.
Moving to South Florida in 1993 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I transferred to Miami from a subsidiary of TWA to working at Miami International Airport. With eleven years of service to TWA and only a brief separation after September 11th, in January 2002, I began my association with American Airlines.Having a combined service in the airline industry of approximately 22 years from 1990 until I retired in 2012 from American Airlines, I enjoyed all aspects of helping people in their travel.
With the potential as standby to fly anywhere in the world or domestically for free or at a reduced rate on A.A. and other Airlines, I have mostly focused my own travel domestically all over the United States, while my husband has taken advantage of international travel. Working 14 years at Post Haste Travel as Front Desk, and now as Office Manager, I understand more fully all the dedication and planning that the Travel Advisors put into creating rewarding and successful travel experiences. After a trip in December 2019 to one of our country’s many beautiful majestic National Parks, Yosemite, this quote made perfect sense: “Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.” If you’ve been thinking about a family trip or a couple’s adventure to one of many U.S. National Parks, stop hesitating and call Post Haste Travel to speak to one of our Specialists and begin your experience of Wow!
Planning travel has always been my obsession, from last-minute, spontaneous travel to a trip of a lifetime. I love all the details that personalized travel requires! Travel is part of my DNA… Born in the U.S., raised bilingually by Danish parents, and growing up traveling the world, I’ve been to over 39 countries on 5 continents.I love scuba diving, hiking, skiing, horseback treks, and exploring other cultures. Having been in the travel industry for many years, I took a brief break while my children were young.
We now travel with our children worldwide so that they have the opportunity to experience other cultures on their journey to become global citizens. Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer, so let me help you plan an experience that will leave you with priceless memories!
When it comes to curating travel experiences I’m the Travel Planner for you. With a background as a Luxury Travel Concierge with insider industry knowledge, I can plan extraordinary activities that you will be talking about forever. I can give you behind the scene VIP access to sites and attractions, arrange unique culinary experiences, obtain impossible-to-find event tickets and so much more than just your hotel and flight bookings.
I focus on the whole travel package as I believe the best memories are often made with family and friends that indulge in local culture and cuisine. My favorite experiences to plan are those that add an extra spark to a trip that can be planned independent of an advisor, something that I as your Travel Planner can continually offer. Milestone events like honeymoons, anniversaries, and birthdays are my specialty and I make the most memorable experiences for you. Just imagine, a two-day private yacht with a famous chef, a reserved suite just for you and your friends at a top sporting event, or even an exclusive golfing package at one of the top private courses in the world.
When it comes to the travel planning process, tell me your passions so that I can bring them to life. I’ll help you fill in the details and enhance the plans to provide Virtuoso-exclusive amenities you can’t get anywhere else. Count on a detailed day-by-day itinerary with plenty of suggestions for top dining options and experiences.
I grew up in the gorgeous city of St. Petersburg in Russia. When my younger sister and I were little, my parents brought us to some places, left us with some locals, and went hiking. Maybe, then my envy for travel was born. Being unable to budget my trips, I have completed the Water Travel Instructor’s training and started leading groups. My son wasn’t even one year old when I started tugging him along. After coming to the U.S., I was offered an opportunity to learn how to be a travel agent, and I seized the chance.
From that time on, for the last 26 years, I was arraigning some leisure, incentive, and most corporate travel. And I traveled the world myself but much less than I’d like to. My latest fascinating trips were to Australia (twice!) and to inspiring Peru. I can’t wait to be on the way to my next fantastic destination! There are so many places to explore still on my bucket list!
