About Michael W. Graham, CTIE, VTA, ACC

A little bit about me

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.  They 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 Academy 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.

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. Click Here to see an updated map of my travels.

As the President of 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.  

I have visited 74 countries, all 7 continents, and hundreds of cities. In addition to many other methods of travel, I have sailed on over 30 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.

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). 

Michael Graham, a CTIE, ACC, and VTA certified expert, is available to give travel talks at consumer, trade, and corporate events - either in person or virtually.

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.
