Luxury Travel: Hotels, Resorts & Cruises

“I specialize in luxury leisure travel,” Tom Schmidt says, “whether for multi-generational family vacations, ocean and river cruises, groups, couples or singles.”

Relying on nearly three decades of experience in the travel industry to help his clients plan their dream vacations, listening to his client’s wants, desires and must-haves is paramount. He also uses his depth of travel industry knowledge and creativity to make every trip different than the last trip and create something truly unique. "I try to wow my clients and come up with new ideas and new angles to make every trip memorable.”  

His affiliation with industry powerhouse Tzell Travel Group provides great advantages for his clients. “I always reach out to luxury hotels and resorts to speak with the Sales Manager and have them send my clients a bottle of wine or special amenity with a personal note when they arrive in their room. That extra touch really goes a long way to add a special unexpected start to a wonderful vacation.

"Tzell is one of the most respected luxury travel agencies in the industry. Through our long-standing relationships, I can create experiences that are beyond the ordinary.”

For example, with a family vacation, instead of looking for the typical options, such as an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean, Tom offers his clients more unique ideas. Instead of a Caribbean trip over Christmas (which one family recently requested), he advised that they would pay three times more over Christmas than they would waiting until January, so he instead recommended a Viking river cruise, where the family could visit Germany and Austria, explore the Christmas markets and drink Glühwein. The family was ecstatic. All their friends had taken the typical holiday to crowded Florida or Cancun, while they had explored two new countries they had never seen before on a far more reasonable budget. “This is what it means to ‘wow’ a client,” Tom said with a smile.

Call him today to plan your next luxury journey, maybe even one you never even knew existed.

Perfect trip to Switzerland

Reviewed By Cathryn - New York | Traveled to Switzerland ~ Europe
After cancelling a trip to Punta Cana last minute, I reached out to Tom to see if he could help me plan a trip. Within days he planned out a trip to Switzerland and it was better than I could’ve imagined. His itinerary helped me see four different towns and make the most of each of them in just six days total. It was a wonderful and unforgettable vacation and I am so thankful for his help!

The trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Nicole - Staten Island, New York | Traveled to Europe
When I reached out to Tom all that I knew was I wanted to go on a trip to Europe.
Not only did he find me the perfect 3 week trip through Europe, but he helped me plan every step of the way. He found me an amazing priced flight, a super convenient hotel in London, and then a tour group for my age that went throughout 7 countries and 10 cities.
Tom helped me plan the trip of a lifetime and I couldn’t imagine having done any of this without him!
