Protravel agents Nathalie Nagy and Robert Becker were among the travel professionals recognized by Travel + Leisure's “2014 A-List of Top Travel Advisors.”
Nagy was recognized for her expertise for “Central Europe,” while Becker has been cited for his mastery of “Diving” and related vacations.
Noting her 17 years of experience as a travel agent, along with her other specialization in Western Europe, Travel + Leisure singled out Nagy for her knowledge in Central Europe: A part-time Budapest resident who is fluent in both Hungarian and German, Nagy is skilled at showing travelers an insider’s perspective on well-known places, including Prague and Vienna. She also introduces travelers to off-the-beaten path destinations such as Romania, Montenegro, Slovenia and Slovakia, the magazine said.
In selecting Becker, Travel + Leisure noted his 28 years as a travel agent, his PADI Divemaster certification and his specializations in adventure travel. In the past year alone, he has visited Indonesia’s Komodo island; Vanuatu, in the South Pacific; the Grenadines; and Canada’s Vancouver Island. He is adept at pairing diving opportunities with cultural destinations, and makes a point of working with operators who support local economies and are serious about conservation and sustainable travel, Travel + Leisure said.
In its introduction of the 2014 A-List of 133 Top Travel Agents, Travel + Leisure noted a top travel advisor can help travelers turn vacations into the experience of a lifetime. The annual A-List showcases the best specialists in the business.
