Sari Gartner

San Diego, California Travel Agent

Travel Agent

I read an article about Machu Picchu when I was 10, and my path was set: an ideal life would include adventure and travel! My first international trip was to Machu Picchu and the jungles of the Amazon, but since South America, I have continued to see the world, building on my knowledge and experience to share in planning my client’s exceptional travel.

I am a certified specialist in Australia, Fiji, and New Zealand. Ongoing education is an imperative, and I work to inform myself about the world and the travel industry by frequently attending trade events and attending classes. I seek the unique for myself and my clients, and strive to make travel personally fulfilling by listening to my client’s priorities and helping to match those with partners and destinations that will meet and exceed their expectations. Additional destinations I have personally visited include: South America, Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, the South Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand.

It’s not enough to love travel to be a great travel advisor. I am organized, informed, available, and connected, and bring all of this and, yes, a love, to your travel experiences!

A Fabulous Trip All Thanks to Sari!

Reviewed By Karen - Mead, CO | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
We were looking for someplace tropical to go that hadn't been damaged by the hurricanes. Sari put us onto Turks & Caicos which we had not even been aware of. She helped us at every step of the way from identifying the location, orchestrating our travel arrangements and snorkeling/scuba excursions and getting us incredible accomodations, far beyond our expectations. We truly were blown away by the unit she acquired for us. All in all, an incredible trip.

We've used Sari for several other trips (Hawaii; Tahiti/Bora Bora/Moorea; Danube River cruise) and in every case, she has exceeded our expectations. Aside from being extremely well-informed about destinations, she is a great listener, patient and helpful in addressing any concerns and always quick to respond. With every trip we have taken, we have always traveled knowing she is watching out for our safety and doing her level best to ensure we have a top-notch experience. A tremendous travel resource!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Once in a Lifetime

Reviewed By Woodsie - Fort Collins, CO | Traveled to Myanmar ~ East and Southeast Asia
Sari is truly a professional. From the initial planning of the trip to the pick up at the airport, she is with you. One of the first trips we planned with Sari, yes, there have been many; my companion and I were going to Asia and needed visas, vaccinations etc and was completely on top of it. She helped with our visa process etc.
Sari is truly a professional. She has a comprehensive knowledge of destinations, cruise lines, restaurants and hotels. She always finds out what we are
Sari is truly a professional. She has a comprehensive knowledge of cruise lines, touring companies, hotels, transportation transfers and restaurants to meet the expectations of her clients. She asks her clients what their goals for the trip are, putting her client first. Sari seems to "love" the world and thus wants to help people travel and become more knowledgeable about people in other cultures. Thanks Sari! We can't wait for our next adventure!

My first experience working with Sari convinced me that I will always call her before making future travel plans. She's professional, personable and thorough. She listened to my wants and expectations for pre-cruise travel and made arrangements accordingly. I have recommended her to friends.

Reviewed By snooks - highlands ranch, co | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Sari has planned numerous trips for myself and my extended family, domestic and international and every detail, cars, hotels, flights, drivers, sightseeing, adventures of all sorts and not one detail is ever overlooked, I have some mobility issues that Sari takes into consideration that I am well cared for and safe. Sari's attention to the smallest detail is what makes working with her such a joy, chose your location and she will take care of EVERYTHING for you and you will have a fantastic experience.
