INTERNATIONAL AND LUXURY TRAVEL SPECIALIST

Growing up in Israel, and traveling at a young age, I took an early interest in exploring the world. After working as an international flight attendant, I wished to share my passion for travel with others. This led me to my long career as a certified travel specialist. Whether your preference is fully customized independent travel, group travel, or ocean and river cruising, with over 30 years in the industry, I offer you more than just a trip but the Perfect Experience. Deluxe and luxury travel may be my specialty, but I can meet a variety of budgetary needs. As St. Augustine of Hippo said, "The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page"

Rock Star Advisor!
Izzy is amazing. His attention to detail and his ability to anticipate my questions and concerns helped me to relax and really enjoy the process of planning the perfect holiday. I tend to be a bit neurotic and a control freak so working with someone who gets me and listens to me is really important. Izzy knows his stuff!
