Travel Investment Advisor

I believe that Time is our most precious commodity and we must spend it wisely.

Travel is an investment, and having been to all 7 continents, I am a well-traveled Travel Investment Advisor.  Think of me as a buyer's agent for affluent travelers and group leaders.  You benefit by receiving an authentic experience that is a good value.   

I advise on luxury travel for select individual clients and with the Apex certification from Travel Leaders, I am able to offer American Express Platinum & Centurion members services including Membership Rewards Pay with Points. 

With regard to the luxury category, I am honored to have been selected as an American Express Pacesetter and as a Tauck Certified Agent, two designations that are not easy to obtain. 

When working with VIP clients for vacation travel or sabbaticals, our clients travel worry-free knowing that we are very discreet and information is never leaked or shared. 

I have been very fortunate to have visited approximately 68 countries in 7 continents across hundreds of cities. It is my hope that more people travel because when we travel we realize that, while governments may differ, we are all one people. And when we realize that, it fosters more peace and harmony among all of us. And that is something this world desperately needs. 

As the President of Michael Graham & Associates (MGA Travel), this business is a labor of love derived from my fantastic journeys over the past 30 years. I enjoy advising on travel almost as much as finding and curating new custom experiences by scouting and traveling myself.  

In addition to many other methods of travel, I have sailed on over 40 ocean & river cruises, and on virtually every brand.

I have had the pleasure of personally guiding many organizations around the world (over 50 countries), hosting large groups by sea and land, and organizing complicated itineraries. 

Creating memories and experiences for luxury groups and affluent travelers is my real specialty.  While I have an excellent understanding of group travel through luxury and beyond, I also love crafting one of a kind experiences in a safe and comfortable environment.

The best value I can bring you is the optimization of your most valuable asset: time.  What you want is an authentic experience directed by insider knowledge. My clients are engaged in all levels of travel - check the testimonials - but they are not having to search for the "best of" because I have already certified it (i.e. Graham's Guide).   


My success is from the grace of God. I work hard to demonstrate that every day.  Certainly I can't do it alone -  meet our team. https://mgatravel.com/ourteam.html

Customer Testimonials

Amazing Group Trip for all 140 of us!

Well SOS at Sea 7 is in the books. We all learned many things but the most significant to me is that we ARE Family. Michael, Kelly, Elyse, Troy, and Sue set the table and demonstrated amazing professionalism while being an integral part of our family. The cruise committee also worked hard to make your trip as pleasurable as possible. Our itinerary was phenomenal! But none of this would make any difference if not for each and every “Yellow Tag” who joined this family for an SOS at Sea of a lifetime! Thank you and I can speak for Robin and myself in saying we cannot wait for the reunions, and our future times together! We love you!
