Andrea Ryder

I have been in the travel industry literally my entire career, over 30+ years! Ensuring my clients have that trip of a lifetime is my goal. I can’t think of anything I would rather be doing than travelling to a new destination so when I return I can share the experience with my clients.

I have been fortunate enough over the years to travel all over the world and experienced the best resorts, cruise lines and destinations. Of course I do have my favorites including; Bali, Tahiti, London (I lived there for 2 years), Italy, Hawaii, the Maldives, the Caribbean and Mexico. 

A number of my clients (and my husband!) love luxury cruising and we have hosted a number of "Virtuoso Voyages" sailings on many of the luxury cruise lines.

The long-term relationships I build with my clients mean the world to me. I’d love to help you plan your next trip of a lifetime somewhere in the world that you will never forget!

My husband & I are hosting a number of Virtuoso Voyages Cruises over the next 12 months - Including a Seabourn Antartica Cruise in Feb 2019, a Crystal Asian Cruise in May 2019  and a SilverSea European cruise in September 2019Please e-Mail me if your interested in joining us!

African Safari
Just returned from a safari in Kenya- Micato arranged this fantastic trip - I stayed at the fabulous Angama Mara, and got to see the BIG FIVE! An experience like no other - well worth adding to your "to do" list

Danube River Cruise
Went on fantastic 10-day all-inclusive Scenic cruise with friends last autumn. Great food/service/destinations/tours! Highly recommended

One of my favorite countries! - Rented a great Villa in Vinci (Tuscany) with 6 friends-Fantastic! Lots of day trips to wineries, beaches and historic cities - The best way to experience Tuscany!

Baltic Capitals/Russia
Highlights included Copenhagen-Denmark,Stockholm- Sweden and St Petersburg-Russia. Beautiful countries, amazing food and outstanding architecture.

Mumbai - India to Rome -Italy
Spent 3 days in Mumbai before boarding a Seabourn cruise to Rome via the Suez Canal. Fantastic Ports and excitement traveling through "Pirate Country" (very safe of course!). Add this trip to your bucket list!

Rio De Janerio -Brazil
Brazil is a fantastic, vibrant country - with so many contrasts! I was on a Crystal cruise from Miami to Rio for 16 nights. Great ship and great ports of call!

London Olympics
What a great experience! From the opening ceremony, London came alive! The weather was great, the people happy, and the number of medals the highest ever for Team GB!

What an Island! Sailed on the Paul Gauguin for 7 days around the Society Islands. My favorite islands were Bora Bora and Moorea. I ended up staying at the Four Seasons Bora Bora  for 4 nights in an over the water bungalow. The water and scenery in Tahiti is jaw dropping!

Dominican Republic
Stayed at Casa de Campo on the La Romana side. The airport is less than 10 min from the resort, very convenient. They have 3 golf courses and over 10 restaurants with some of the best cuisine I have had in any all-inclusive resort.

"Andrea was a charm to work with. She was very responsive and informative. Not only was she great at responding to our many revisions but she also contacted us when she heard about the plane delay on the way to Ireland. There are some fun perks provided by the hotels when you book through Andrea, and I highly recommend using her.
