Travel + Leisure A List Travel Agent Allie Almario

Allie Almario


Almario is a pro at logistically challenging itineraries, whether you want to go kayaking through the Amazon rain forest (with a private guide), or a month-long privately guided trip in the Galápagos Islands which included trekking to some of the most remote corners of the archipelago, where few visitors venture. She’s noticed that travelers no longer want to keep up with the Joneses. In fact, they want to be nowhere near the Joneses. Almario takes much care with all of her clients to get to know them well before designing a unique itinerary for them specifically. “After discussing the traveler's preferences — actually, it's more like an interview — I design an itinerary that matches their budget and time frame,” Almario says, “We are not a high volume business, as we prefer quality over quantity. We shine when it comes to complicated itineraries with unusual touches that define a journey of a lifetime.”

“My husband and I first became acquainted with Allie Almairo through Premier Travel, which we had used to book several trips to Africa. We wanted to take an Amazon trip with a group of friends so were referred to Allie to help organize it. We had no idea where to start so she made recommendations regarding different itineraries and options based on her extensive personal experience traveling in South America. We ended up going to Lima, Machu Picchu, and then on an Amazon cruise. The trip was outstanding and she left no detail unattended. The entire group had an amazing time!

We then used her services the following year for a trip to Quito, the Galápagos Islands, and then the rain forest in Ecuador. Every selection Allie recommended was exactly on target, and in particular the boat for the Galapagos and the National Geographic lodge in the rain forest. Another incredible trip!  

Allie's extensive knowledge of the region, her own personal experiences, her willingness to work with her clients to meet their travel needs, desires and budget, and her recommendations for activities and stays that we would not have thought of make her our go-to person for South America. She is the only person we would (and have) recommended to family and friends interested in exploring that continent.” — Ron Carzoli
