Meet Our Team


"I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list."

Alvin has been a worldwide traveler since the early eighties. While not doing this professionally during that time, he developed a passion for visiting and learning about other people, their cultures, and history. As a history buff, these experiences fueled his passion for visiting more places and sharing these experiences with others. Some of his travel plans included forming groups of 40 to 160 companion travelers. He has been a full-time travel consultant since 2001. He graduated in 2001 from Travel and Tourism Academy in Philadelphia taking courses to be accredited as a professional Travel and Tourism specialist where he maintained a 97 GPA. Upon completion of his courses, he was awarded his certificates in Travel and Tourism, Sabre Computer Reservations, Fares and Ticketing and Travel Reservations. In the following two years after graduation, Alvin opened the doors to his own travel agency.
