Oh, the Places CIRE Travel Agents Went in 2018


No amount of internet research or scrolling through countless online travel reviews compares to firsthand knowledge of a vacation or honeymoon destination. Even a business trip can be elevated to vacation-like status with the right accommodation. Being your personal source for travel destinations is a responsibility we take seriously.

CIRE Travel’s agents do not sit at their desks 365 days a year. We’re out traveling the world, doing the legwork and research on best cities to visit, activities to do and places to see. Throughout 2018, our team has traveled to different corners of the world in order to plan the most extraordinary trips for you.
