Five Reasons to Work with Our Advisors


The Internet theoretically makes it easier to research and book your own travel – so why would you work with a travel advisor? Below, stories from real Lake Shore travelers illustrate the key reasons. It all comes back to one idea: Travel often creates lifetime memories. Why not do it better?

1. Personalized Planning

When you collaborate with a Lake Shore Travel advisor, your trips will be tailored to your needs, interests, and budget. Barb Burrell and her husband worked with Joan Schwartz on a trip to Italy. “Thank you so much for making our Italy trip so increadible,” says Barb. “Your time spent learning about us and what we enjoy in a vacation resulted in your being spot on with recommendations from hotels and tours to dining. Your recommendation for dinner at La Vin Osteria was the best dinner we had in Italy.” Learn more here.

2. Global Expertise And Connections

Lake Shore Travel advisors have relationships with people around the world who can arrange experiences that make a trip truly extraordinary. Zach and Parker Morse have worked with an advisor on several trips, including their honeymoon to Africa. “When you think about the nature of a trip to Africa with all the logistics and the extraordinary amount of choices, we wanted someone who really knew what to do when you’re there,” says Parker.

3. Value For The Money

A Lake Shore Travel advisor has access to the same (and often better) pricing than you can find online, and can secure special perks you can’t get yourself. Elise Muhawi worked with a Virtuoso advisor on her (destination) wedding and honeymoon. Initially, price point was a concern – but as the planning began, value became the clear difference in working with an advisor. “Working with an advisor was a lifesaver,” says Elise.

4. VIP Treatment

A Lake Shore Travel advisor can get you exclusive access to events, private tours, and other extras. Dahlia Mannarino and her new husband worked with an advisor on a trip to the South Pacific. “There were just so many little things throughout, these personal touches,” says Dahlia. “There would be champagne in the different rooms we checked into, courtesy of him. There were upgrades. It was a dream experience.” Learn more here.

5. Peace Of Mind

In addition to saving you time and money, your advisor is available 24/7 before, during, and after your trip; you can relax and have fun. Carter Drewry and her husband got to the airport for a big trip. His passport was water-damaged, and he wasn’t allowed to board. In tears, they reached out to their advisor. She saved the day.
