Travel with Stuart

Hello, my name is Stuart Gustafson, and as an independent travel consultant, I have access to the same booking engines as every other travel agent. One big difference, however, is that there is no pressure for me “to make quota.” I have chosen to specialize in Cruises and Amazing Destinations around the world because I know them very well. If I am not the best fit for you, I will point you to someone who is.

I charge an upfront Consultation, Research, and Planning Fee (Typically $40 per traveler, waived as an established client) for putting together a travel package based on your inputs. The fee is fully refundable upon return from the travels that I booked for you.

As a traveler and America’s International Travel Expert®, I’ve been to 57 countries, and I’ve been to 168 different cruise ports (and more of each are already planned). If you want travel plans crafted for you by THE Expert and traveler, and not just a “seller of travel,” I’d love the opportunity to help you fulfill your travel wishes.


“The anniversary cruise you booked for us was everything we could have hoped for … and more!”

The U.S. Passport Office has re-opened for processing new passport applications, but the wait times are quite lengthy. I suggest you use a expediting service to get your passport (or foreign country visa) if you are traveling within the next six months. My recommendation, and here is the link, is Rush my Passport.

With travel restrictions and requirements changing frequently, the best source of up-to-date information is the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs. While there, I highly recommend that you sign up for their Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
