Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
For the twelfth consecutive year Select Italy was selected as one of the top travel agents in the Travel + Leisure A-List, the comprehensive list of the world’s outstanding travel agents, with this year’s A-List status being awarded to only 161 of the industry’s best in the world.
Whether you are booking an arctic cruise, a rustic retreat in Tuscany, or a safari in Zambia, an excellent travel agent can make all the difference, transforming your basic trip into a life-changing experience. Travel + Leisure® understands this better than anyone, and its editors evaluated hundreds of agents before selecting their favorites for the twelfth annual A-List of Top Travel Advisors. This exclusive list is organized by area of expertise and provides detail descriptions of the honorees, including their specialties, years as an agent, and contact information. The A-List is featured in the October issue of Travel + Leisure, which has appeared on newsstands since September 20th.
Since the inception of the Travel + Leisure A-List, Select Italy has been present in the person of its founder Andrea Sertoli, who considered the inclusion into the list a significant achievement and a recognition of his desire to offer a specialized, tailored travel service with the ability to create state-of-the-art tours and customized itineraries.
During his 12-year tenure on the Travel + Leisure A-List, Andrea and Select Italy have proffered Dream Destinations and insider’s travel tips upon the A-List agent designation. This year’s destination is the stunning, eight-room Relais Monaci delle Terre Nere in Sicily, a 40-acre farm and vineyard turned resort, nestled on the slopes of the volcano, Etna.
“We are very proud of the inclusion of Andrea's name in the 2013 A-List of the World's top travel agents. This is an award not only for Andrea as a person but the company as a whole,” says Beth Rubin, Master trip planner and Sales Manager at Select Italy, “a company that in the past 16 years has built a reputation of being the absolute best in business for state-of-the art itineraries to Italy and Croatia.”
In addition to the award winning customized itineraries, the Internet-based travel company headquartered in Chicago, IL with localized sites for the United States, China, Russia, Brazil, and more organizes private journeys, tours, hotel reservations, car rentals, yacht charters, vacation packages and various attractions and services. Boasting the industry’s widest selection of unique vacation options, the company is happy to offer all of the services via their award-winning website or by contacting the offices directly via telephone.
