Lake Forest Travel Bureau

From Our President…

Travel can be glamorous and fun if everything goes well, and at Lake Forest Travel Bureau that is our responsibility and driving interest. The devil is in the details for an exceptional experience and when we hear from returning clients that our high standard has been met, we have done our job.

We are a small agency that must always give clients a reason to work with us and provide pride and motivation to our staff. This is our never ending focus.

I was born and raised in Switzerland and coincidentally I acquired the agency in 1995 from another Swiss lady, Lydia Scuderi Hanrahan. I guess the passion for travel is in our genes.

In 1999, after having worked for a Fortune 500 company in an international sales capacity, I joined my mother in the family business. I would have to say I share my mom’s desire to explore the many corners of the world.
