Goldring Travel is a full service and exclusive travel agency that specializes in luxury and exotic cruises, expeditions, river cruises and land tours/experiences. Eric Goldring, a true luxury travel professional, is a travel agent that is friendly, very approachable, and down to earth, does not sell from a computer screen. Eric travels extensively, analyzing each cruise ship, port, hotel, expedition, and overall travel experience; so much so that many cruise lines actively seek out his analysis and recommendations.
That is why Eric has been named to Travel & Leisure Magazine’s highly-curated A-List for Travel Agents, noting Eric’s being a Specialist in Expedition, Small and Medium Cruises.
Want more proof? Please read Eric’s blog, “Making Waves“! There are real differences when comparing, say Silversea vs. Seabourn and those have changed, and will continue to change, so do keep in mind that while providing expert insight is as of that moment, cruise lines do upgrade, slip, change their offerings and amenities and even ships. So use my articles as a guide to asking more questions, not as if they answer all of them. Goldring Travel loves answering questions; especially keeping in mind the perspectives of each client because one thing is for sure: When discussing “What is Your Luxury?” an expert in luxury, exclusive and exotic travel focuses on the client’s desires and dreams.
Eric also regularly speaks to and for the travel industry, whether at The New York Times Travel Show or in Italy at the Italian Federation of Travel Agents conference or at the Seatrade Cruise Shipping Conference, or as a panelist at a variety of conferences. You can be assured that when Goldring Travel recommends a luxury, exclusive and/or exotic travel experience to you, it is with personal knowledge…and a commitment to earning your business; not just for one journey, but for your lifetime!
Look around our website as there is a lot of information available. No, you cannot book your luxury or exotic vacation online with Goldring Travel. As a general rule, I do not post “special” prices, but encourage you to call at (877) 2GO-LUXURY or on one of my international numbers, or email me so that we can determine the best cruise line or operator, level of service and itinerary so that we can provide you with the best value. Why? Because I want you to be the most educated traveler you can be…and we know that the lowest price is usually not the best value.
We are one of the top travel agents – worldwide – having been one of Seabourn Cruise Line’s top agencies for many years, but now working even closer with Silversea, Windstar and a number of the top Expedition companies including Scenic, Quark Expeditions, Silversea Expeditions and Lindblad Expeditions, to name a few. In short, we work closely, and have excellent relationships with, most every major cruise line.
We also have special expertise and experience with Azamara, Oceania, SeaDream Yacht Club and, Celebrity cruise lines, but also some lesser known lines such as Ponant and Paul Gauguin.
AmaWaterways, Uniworld, Scenic, Tauck, and Avalon, are well worth considering.
Goldring Travel offers you everything from fully customized individual experiences to luxury tours in Europe and Asia to Amazon River Experiences to Luxury Safaris in Africa from Abercrombie & Kent, Tauck, Micato and other highly vetted operators.
Every year Eric Goldring personally arranges and escorts a small group on annual Culinary & Cultural (Food & Wine) Cruises with special complimentary events such as a private tour and wine tasting at Chateau Margaux in Bordeaux, France; personally harvesting sturgeon eggs, making caviar and then enjoying a paired luncheon with caviar served a dozen different ways in Montevideo, Uruguay; a paired wine tasting while sailing down the Danube River; or, a cruise line’s executive chef creating a truly unique gourmet experience only for us.
