Worldwide Agent?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have lived very frugal lives and forgone vacations. Now we are ready to retire. A year or two from now we intend to sell our home and relocate.

The thought hit us that, before we buy a new house and to avoid multiple trips across the ocean, we could just tour Europe and Asia until we tired of it.

We are inexperienced travelers, but would appreciate a self-directed vacation.

Our ideal is that we go to England, take a tour or two, peruse the place on our own and when we get tired of that, call 'our' travel agent and tell them we have decided on Italy or Switzerland or Greece or Spain next and ask if they could book a nice hotel and a good tour and advise us the best way to get there. We would like to continue doing this until we tired of it or our money ran out.

Is there an agency that is knowledgeable around the world who could assign us one friendly voice to call to ease our way and guide us through the whole experience, handle logistics, appraise us of warnings or places to avoid?

We have medical insurance that is transportable the world over.
