It all started while I was still working in the corporate world as an association executive as I became bored with the monotony of the same old office work day in and day out. I spent my breaks and leisure time dreaming about and planning trips for my wife, Liz, and I. Eventually it became obvious that we should leverage our love and expertise in planning travel to offer vacation packages to Panama since it is one of the destinations I love most in this world and it is also where Liz was born and raised.

Before we knew it, Panama Travel Consultants ( evolved and our clients were immediately impressed with the unprecedented level of personal service we offered and the incredible destination that Panama is. Our quick success with Panama immediately resulted in requests from clients to plan customized vacation packages to Costa Rica, then to Latin America, and ultimately to the entire world! So we are now very proud to offer custom vacation packages anywhere in the world. And we pride ourselves on receiving the same phenomenal testimonials from returning clients regardless of where in the world they travel to with us!

From the very onset we have only offered private, tailor-made vacation journeys that offer the highest level of flexibility so you can truly experience the destinations you visit and immerse yourself in the local culture. Every custom tour package we offer is completely flexible and completely personalized to provide our clients with the very best authentic travel experiences.

Our most critical key to success is our commitment to developing personal relationships with local tour operators, travel suppliers and hotels in the countries you will visit during your journey of a lifetime.

In many cases our local travel suppliers have invited us to meet with them in their offices and have accompanied us during site inspections throughout their beautiful country. At the very least we have spent countless hours communicating with our local travel suppliers and we have conducted a thorough due diligence process. This is paramount to ensuring the very best personalized service, safety and seamless travel experience for our clients throughout their vacation of a lifetime.

We use private guides who serve as an encyclopedia of knowledge and information about their local country and culture. Every guide is extremely proud and enthusiastic to share real-life stories and experiences that detail the very best their destinations have to offer saavy travelers. The private guides also serve as local cultural ambassadors and many of our clients wind up developing life-long friendships with their guides.
