Goldring Travel is a full service and exclusive travel agency that specializes in luxury, exclusive and exotic cruises, river cruises and land tours/experiences. Eric Goldring, a true luxury travel professional, but also 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 and overall travel experience; so much so that many cruise lines actively seek out his analysis and recommendations.
Want proof? Please read Eric’s blog, “Making Waves“! As a good example, check out our article: A Guide to Luxury Cruises: Seabourn vs. Silversea vs. Regent – Forget Loyalty; Which Provides the Best Luxury Experience. 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 and 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 – for Seabourn Cruise Line, but we also work closely, and have excellent relationships with, most every major cruise line. We we have special expertise and experience with Seabourn, Crystal, Silversea Expeditions, Cunard, Windstar, Azamara Club, Oceania, SeaDream Yacht Club, Celebrity and Holland America cruise lines, but also some lesser known lines such as Ponant, Paul Gauguin and Lindblad.
AmaWaterways and Crystal River Cruises, Uniworld and Tauck, are well worth considering.
Goldring Travel offers you everything from fully customized individual experiences to luxury tours in Europe, Asia and 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, Seabourn’s executive chef creating a truly unique gourmet experience only for us.
