Jeff Traugot

I am a well-traveled native New Yorker. 

For over the past 20 years, I have spend my professional career building and strengthening my relationships with hotel and other travel professionals to make sure you have the best experience from the time you vacation begins to great memories well after it ends.

My goal is to exceed my clients' expectations. I personally enjoy adventure travel, exploring interesting cities and unwinding on the beach.

Having now traveled with children for over ten years, I feel confident recommending destinations both in the US and abroad to my clients that suit their level of comfort and high standards, while being family-friendly.

Some of my most memorable adventure trips have included diving off the Great Barrier Reef, running into fascinating nocturnal animals on the roads of Tasmania, zip-lining in Costa Rica, exploring the Galapagos Islands, coming face 
to face with the Big Five on safari in South Africa, going elephant trekking in northern Thailand, taking in the scenic beauty of the Norwegian fjords and "glamping" in a remote area of Vancouver Island. 

I have recently started to experience some of my favorite urban destinations with my children, and I now appreciate these places in a whole different way. I am particularly drawn to Jerusalem, Paris, London and Prague.

When needing to recharge, I head to the Caribbean. I cannot wait to return to St. Barths, Anguilla, Turks & Caicos, Grand Cayman, Antigua, Barbados, Virgin Islands and many other favorites.

Peruvian Amazon
Incredible luxury river boat journey exploring remote areas of the Amazon with Aqua Expeditions. Loved the pristine natural settings and unique wildlife, coupled with visits to Amazonian villages while on an exclusive boat with just sixteen cabins and knowledgeable naturalist guides. An extraordinary experience for the whole family.

St. Petersburg, Russia
One of my favorite city destinations, particularly because of the option to combine exploration of Russian history, art, culture and architecture with high-end hotel accommodations like The Four Seasons, the W, the Astoria and Grand Hotel.

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Puerto Rico
This is an elegant luxury beach resort in a spectacular, natural setting, withan impressive spa, children's water park and programs, as well as golf. This resort redefines the high-end for Puerto Rico. I would go again in a heartbeat to recharge.

Israel
From the beach, nightlife and outstanding restaurants of Tel Aviv to the deeply spiritual and religious sights of Jerusalem, the history of Masada and the 
novelty of the Dead Sea, this is an extraordinary destination. More high-end places to stay than ever and no shortage of fascinating experiences.
