Shadyside Travel Agency, Pittsburgh, PA

With over 40 years of continual ownership I have traveled the world and would love to share my experiences with you. Besides corporate sales, I specialize in honeymoons, destination weddings, all inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean and upscale cruises. I await your call to give you the ins and outs of different destinations which will offer a rewarding travel experience.

My veteran staff and I want to help you to navigate the quandary of fares and options in the domestic and International marketplace. We realize that you face the challenge of selecting the right vacation package deals or discount air travel. Besides coach discount fares we can offer substantial savings off business and first class International airfares, many that are not on the Internet. Give me a call at 1-800-227-9843.

I welcome the chance to partner with you in a business-related opportunity, either from a vendor or client standpoint. Please phone or e-mail me at anytime or join me on LinkedIn.
