Get to know Lisa Taub, Owner

What is your favorite part of your job?

Talking with my clients to understand what interests them about a specific destination or vacation.  Matching their interests and travel style to the right cruise line, resort or custom itinerary to exactly suit their needs.

What is the inspiration behind the business? Or what is your personal inspiration?

I’ve been fortunate to live abroad twice – first in Germany and then in Japan – with two small kids!  Once we started traveling, we never wanted to stop.  I’ve visited over 40 countries and it really has shaped my view of the world, of people and of cultures.  Seeing the world through my kids’ eyes has been an added bonus – when they gaze in awe at the snow-covered Rocky Mountains, and say that climbing a Mayan ruin was really cool – I know travel is shaping their worldview as well.  Joining in the travel industry was a natural progression for my second career.

What are the three most important things about your business?

  • Listening to my clients.
  • Attention to detail. 
  • Continual learning.
