New York, New York Travel Agent
Planning a trip on your own can be stressful. There is a lot of information coming at you and it is hard to know what to trust. When I arrange your trip, you can relax knowing that your hotels, villas, airlines, and activities have all been professionally vetted and are being planned with your specific interests in mind.
I will help you make the right decisions for you. I think through every detail, selecting the airlines, hotels, restaurants that best meet your needs so that all you need to do is go and enjoy. Plus, I use my insider knowledge to ferret out special experiences that match your interests and travel goals.
One of my longtime clients was planning a trip with her 20-something daughter, and they were getting overwhelmed trying to decide on a destination before calling me. Finally, the daughter said, “Just call Soraya and let’s do whatever she says. She always gets it right.”
Working with me, you have a well-traveled expert who understands the travel industry and has your back from start to finish. Plus, as a Virtuoso member, I can provide my luxury-loving clients with a wide array of value-added amenities such as meal and spa credits, VIP treatment and much more.
As in any industry, making things happen is all about relationships. As a Protravel International travel agent, I have the clout of one of the nation’s largest luxury travel agencies and have trusted suppliers to call on anywhere in the world.
That clout is especially important if something goes wrong along the way. My clients know that all they need to call or text at any time and I will leverage my personal contacts and the Protravel name to sort it out. An individual traveler has no leverage, but suppliers have to do right by my clients or they will damage their valuable relationship with Protravel and me.
I have been in the travel business for nearly 30 years and began traveling with my family at a very young age. I grew up in New York City and graduated NYU Stern with a BS in Finance and Marketing in 1984. However, I never stopped traveling and after working in finance for about six years, I decided to follow my heart and joined Liberty Travel’s Fast Track Management Program. Soon I was leading and managing some of its most agencies.
I have been lucky to incorporate travel into my career and family life, and have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Mexico, South America, Canada, and the United States.
I have created a wonderful group of clients along the way and once I was done with the management and development side of the business, I joined Protravel International--the country's top luxury travel agency--to concentrate on what I love most: providing the most complete and memorable vacations for you--my clients.
