Tourguide in Rio de Janeiro; Tourmanager elsewhere; Travel Counsel.
I can provide most of what travel agencies offer - especially for smaller groups - at much more favorable fares: HOTELS, APARTMENTS, TOURS (common as well as specialized), SURGICAL HOLIDAYS (cosmetic, dental, etc.), BABY-CARE, TRANSPORTATIONS OF ANY KIND (except intercontinental flights), and a host of other tourism-related aspects.
I have means of passing larger groups (10+) on to fairly priced credited agencies of long and successful standing.
I do not accept credit card payments (some of my partner-agencies do).
I never had one snare-up so far.
I speak, read (all), and write (most) fluently English, German, French, Dutch/Flemish, Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish.
I am versed in individual-, group-, incentive-, business-, leisure-travel, and have been in the tourism business for 30+ years.
