Sierra Madre, California Travel Agent

A Special Kind of Travel Agency

Traditional face-to-face travel planning provided in a brick-and-mortar setting is still very much in demand. At least that has been the experience of our travel agents since we opened our travel agency in Sierra Madre two years ago. Our location in the former City Hall building, now home to a variety of boutique businesses, makes it easy for clients and potential clients to drop by.

While many of our travel agents work remotely and communicate primarily by phone, text, and email with their travelers, our offices are also open for evening and weekend hours by appointment. We provide a welcoming space for those who like to sit down with their travel agent and discuss their upcoming family vacations, honeymoon, romance or adventure trips or celebration travel in person. Many of our travel agents use brochures, either our own or those clients receive in the mail, to help travelers visualize a trip. Many clients say that paging through a brochure with their travel agent is very much more enlightening than from receiving a computer link. That makes us unique and personal--the way travel agencies used to be.

Before moving to Sierra Madre, our office was located in downtown Pasadena, just ten minutes away by freeway. We had an office there for over 30 years and watched the region explode with residential communities. In 1999, our agency joined Protravel. Our recent move provides a more convenient location with plentiful parking. We also have a conference room on site. Today, our clients come from all over the San Gabriel Valley and beyond.

Our branch has specialists in many regions of the world and specialties ranging from destination weddings and honeymoons to corporate travel. We also serve the travel needs of a number of area colleges and universities.

We have a great group of people and a strong feeling of trust and camaraderie that comes from working in a small office with a stable staff and knowing that we can depend on each other’s knowledge. We are a great choice for anyone looking to join—or book their trips--with the best travel agency east of downtown Los Angeles.
