About Us

So why Gurvy Travel? 

Leave your weekday shoes behind, Gurvy Travel will help you arrange your next paradise escape. I can save you from all stress and more importantly--time. The internet cannot help you through a difficult situation you may encounter while traveling or unforeseen circumstances that can interrupt or delay your trip--the internet has no voice. I am human and I am your voice to assist you with your travel needs from our first encounter to your return from your vacation.  I will sort out all the logistics and create a trip tailored for you so you can stop researching. I am affiliated with a store-front Travel Agency in California, Montrose Travel who have been in business for over sixty years and rated consistently in the top five throughout the nation. This allows for me to partner with a solid agency with expertise in leisure, group and corporate travel. 

I live on island in Turks and Caicos every summer for a month, and have for the past eight years with my family. Each summer I conduct visits at the resorts and maintain relationships with hotel managers, tour operators, and more. This has motivated me to share my love of travel with others by becoming a specialized Travel Agent in Turks and Caicos but not limited solely to this beautiful island. I will help you arrange your vacation plans to any destination around the globe! 

I travel several times a year to allow for me to immerse in the culture of the destination to bring more quality itineraries to my clients. I have traveled to Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Paris, Italy, Belgium, Amsterdam, London, Germany, Peru, Panama and the list goes on. If I haven't traveled to a destination you’re interested in,  I have colleagues who have, so I can ensure you will be in good hands with my recommendations. 

So are you ready to leave your weekday shoes behind?

Testimonials

Gurvy Travel helped make my trip to Turks and Caicos the best vacation I’ve ever had. Gurvinder took care of arranging all of our activities…all I had to do was show up! She scheduled a relaxing day at the spa, an amazing boat trip to North and Middle Caicos, and an outstanding dinner at the best restaurant on the island. She even arranged for me to get my PADI Scuba Certification while I was on vacation, truly a life changing experience. Not only was she a pleasure to work with, every establishment she sent us to was top notch. I would enthusiastically recommend Gurvy Travel to everyone!

Shelly B from Annapolis, MD

Gurvinder, Thank you for planning our amazing Disney Vacation!! The boys and I really appreciate your attention to detail and helpful tips. You really made our trip run so smoothly! Thanks again for helping make or Disney adventure such a magical experience!

Claudia, Maryland

Yosemite was great. The accommodations during Easter weekend were perfectly arranged by Gurvinder. The kids had a blast with the cabin and Easter hunt. We took in the majestic scene of the entire area and enjoyed a picnic at the park. The cabin with no TV or phone in the room was exactly how we wanted it. Great recommendation by Gurvy Travel. Thanks for listening and getting it done right!

Anthony H, Granada Hills, CA

Gruvinder of Gurvy Travel planned a once in a lifetime experience for my family. I contacted her approximately one month before we wanted to travel during the busiest and most expensive time of year. She provided me with affordable options and guided my decision. The experience was flawless from beginning to end even providing me support while she was out of the country and backup coverage from her agency. She was a delight to work with and I would absolutely and without any reservation, highly recommend Gurvinder to help plan your next getaway!

A. B, Bethesda, Maryland

Gurvinder was great to deal with and communication was timely and extremely helpful. We appreciate all the hints and recommendations passed along.

Linda, Boston MA

I recently had a great and most memorable trip to Costa Rica thank to Gurv and her professional assistance. She organized the entire trip for me starting from the flights to arranging the hotels, places to visit and the activities. It takes an experienced agent to provide the level of service and attention to details as she provided for me. Thank you Gurv!!! I am looking forward to my next trip wherever it may be!!

Mehran, Portland

Gurvinder was an absolute pleasure to work with, we purchased our travel insurance and booked our stand up paddle board eco tour with her. Throughout the process she was quick to reply to emails and made everything easy. The SUP tour was great, we even saw some sharks! Gurvinder made it so easy, the tour company picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel lobby. There were no issues with the travel insurance or SUP tour, and I would definitely work with Gurvinder again!

Amanda Barclay, OR

One of the best things is the information the Gurvy Travel sent before my trip. The recommendations they make are invaluable when visiting a place for the first time. Gurvinder arranged all our activities for us as she is also a travel agent whom I would highly recommend. We intend to rent this same location again and discussed this as soon as we arrived home. I think that speaks loudly as to how much we loved our accommodations. On the grounds there is also a pool, workout area, tennis court and restaurant.

L. Sullivan, Richmond VA

Gurvinder. Everything went smoothly. The room is beautiful and we equally loved staying at Marjie’s. Our trip has been amazing. Thank you for all of your help!

A. Mitchell, Medway, MA

Our snorkeling tour was wonderful. The crew was very attentive to everyone’s needs and had a fun spirited demeanor. It was amazing watching the crew dive for our conch and the conch salad they made was delicious! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Gurvy Travel!

D. Metzler, New Jersey

One of the best things is the information that was sent to us before our trip. The recommendations made were invaluable when visiting a place for the first time. Gurvinder arranged all of our activities, she is a travel agent I would recommend highly!

B. C, Richmond, VA

Gurvinder were very helpful with her suggestions and we booked our car rental and diving through her recommendations. I would certainly suggest this condo and renting through Gurvinder to friends and/or family.

J. Gunn, Ontario, Canada

Gurvinder did a tremendous job planning a 20th anniversary getaway for me and my husband to the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA. She dove right into the planning, researched the right deals and vacation packages for our needs, and set up all of our meals and activity appointments. She took care of every detail in advance — including a surprise bottle of champagne and strawberries to greet us! Literally, all we had to do was show up and enjoy!

JZ, Bethesda

Gurvy Travel was absolutely amazing in helping us to book our underwater submarine excursion! We contacted them sort of last minute and asked about a morning availability for the next day or 2 days, and they immediately emailed me back with their thoughts. They were able to contact the excursion, find the next available morning trip, and we got booked for the next available morning trip. Even though we emailed Gurvy Travel on a late afternoon, they were able to get me and my family sorted out by the evening, with no troubles and no stress. I will be sure to book through them in the future! Great, fast, dependable service!

Ed Jun, Long Island, NY

Gurvinder did a phenomenal job putting together an unforgettable 10th wedding anniversary trip to Provo! Not only did she book our flights and hotel, but she also personally made reservations for dinner on each night of our trip. The snorkeling cruise she recommended and booked for us was amazing – an experience we will never forget. No detail was overlooked! We will be back to TCI and will be relying on Gurvinder for her expertise in the future! ❤

K. Mehta, Gaithersburg, MD

Could not have had a better trip to TCI thanks to Gurvy Travel Agency. Gurvinder was very accommodating and responded to all my requests the same day, and she managed to plan and book our trip itinerary in a matter of two days. Once all booked, we had a well organized copy of our itinerary on paper with dates and phone numbers, which made it super easy to confirm our reservations when we got to the island. Thank you very much for an amazing experience.

Angela Thomas

Today, per recommendation of Gurvy Travel, we had a bottom fishing excursion with Sand and Sea at Turks and Caicos. This was a memorable bottom fishing excursion with Sand and Sea at Turks and Caicos. We were picked up from our hotel by Christopher (part owner of the Sand and Sea). My son and I had an awesome time bottom fishing. The folks at Sand and Sea were friendly and helpful. The boat ride by itself was a lot of fun. When we arrived at the site, the captain, AJ, and his first mate Anthony both helped the guests get their fishing equipment together and helped them bait the lines. They provided all of the equipment and bait. We caught many different types of fish. They helped us reel in the bigger fish. The captain also took us to a second site where we had even more fun catching Grouper, Trigger fish and Squirrel fish. Refreshments were provided. The company was exceptionally pleasant. The boat ride back was just as much fun as the ride to the fishing site. I highly recommend them.

Mehrad Paymani

After researching, and a lot of contemplations, we booked our Turks and Caicos Vacation with Gurvy Travel. This was the best decision by far. From the beginning she was so attentive and helpful. She listened and paid attention to our needs and concerns, and planned our vacation accordingly. Everything was orchestrated beautifully, and we enjoyed our vacation! We will definitely use Gurvy Travel for our future vacations, and recommend their services highly. Best Vacation ever! Gurvy Travel also arranged a private Snorkeling tour with ‘Caicos Dream Tours’. The boat was very clean, The Captain and the crew were friendly and very helpful. They took us to Iguana Island, and arranged a wonderful lunch. I recommend them highly!

Fariba Shamsian, CA

For my Scuba diving excursion, Gurvy Travel booked me with “Seafari”. Because of my Certification restrictions, I needed special attention with a professionl diver, which they provided, and it was a wonderful experience!! We did Two Tank dives, and the scenery under water was magnificent and breathtaking. They have a great customer service, and I recommend them highly.

Mehrzad S, CA

I would definitely recommend Club Med Turks and Caicos for the day pass. I found it through Gurvy Travel. It is the best deal in town if you are staying somewhere that does not have unlimited water sports or just want a change of pace for a day. The day pass includes unlimited food, drinks, snorkeling tours, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and even bungee trampoline and trapeze lessons! We took the snorkeling tour and the equipment was good and snorkeling was excellent. There are also exercise classes on the hour all day long. The resort itself is a little old and worn looking, but the staff are super friendly. It really is like camp for adults! The food is average, but since a day pass is all about the activities the food does not really matter. Thanks Gurvy Travel, I never would have known a day pass existed if you had not recommended it!

B, Maryland

My husband and I just got back from an incredible trip to Turks and Caicos, wonderfully planned by Gurvy Travel. Gurv helped with everything from flights, to fabulous hotel and dining recommendations, and they did not disappoint. One important thing to note is her attention to detail and her attentiveness both before and during our trip. We missed our flight and she was on point within minutes to help us reschedule shuttle transfers and rebook dinner reservations. She made us feel taken care of and supported during a less than ideal situation. We loved everything about our vacation and Gurv was a huge part of that. Thank you Gurvy Travel!

Sara and Adam, New York City

My family and I were able to travel through Gurvy Travel”s expert help to Turks and Caicos and it was so much more than we all expected. We were able to get the best flights that fit our arrival and departure requirements, thanks to some expert maneuvering by Gurvy Travel! Our accommodations at Grace Bay Club were incredible and Thanks to Gurvy Travel we were able to get the room we wanted at a lower price point than quoted originally. The room was absolutely breath taking with a spectacular view and the service was truly wonderful! Everyone was always smiling and eager to help, no matter what our request. All the water sports, which were included with the room, made for a wonderful experienced for all of us, children and adults, whether it was the paddle board, or Kayak or snorkel or if it was just a floating bed to layout on the water and enjoy. The Boat excursion was of course lovely as well, thanks to Gurvy Travle for picking the best company. Gurvy Travel is the ONLY WAY TO TRAVEL:)!

Shideh S, Costa Mesa, CA

I have booked over and over with Gurvy Travel because not only is it convenient but easy for our family. With our busy schedule, any time saving assistance is appreciated. We just say where, when, and how much we want to spend to make it happen, and guess what, it happens! It is a personal experience that doesn’t come with a price tag. Thank you for helping our family take the trips we just don’t have the time to schedule on our own.

Jas Han, Granada Hills, CA

Gurvinder was wonderful in helping us come to a decision about where to stay in Turks and Caicos on late notice. Gurvinder was spot on in recommending that we’d be happiest at the all inclusive “Beaches” given our family’s varying needs. She was attentive, thoughtful and very pleasant to deal with. Her package of material including the wonderful book on travel wrapped in ribbon and checklist for the Islands helped us organize, get excited for the trip and made us feel comfortable that there would always be someone associated with Gurvy Travel available to contact. She booked us into a fun Snorkeling and Iguana Island trip with very friendly, patient, safety conscious Captain and crew. She also planned a successful bone fishing excursion with a Captain who was friendly, knowledgeable and very good about teaching our daughter about fishing. If you want to swim in crystal clear waters and walk where the sand is sublime, She’s an expert, I’d recommend her in a heartbeat!

R.B., Maryland

The first phone call I had with Gurvinder was such a positive experience that I knew I wanted to work with her. She took the time and asked me what it was that we were looking for or had in mind. She had presented us with several options and talked about the pros and cons of each location. She was so knowledgeable about the different locations and resorts that it made it really easy for us to narrow choices down. I never felt like she was swaying us in a certain direction. She educated us and allowed us to make the best choice. Once we decided on a location and resort she then handled everything! She scheduled excursions, dinner reservations and even provided us with a nice travel itinerary for each day that we were there. Even while we were on our honeymoon she was communicating with us to make sure that everything was going well. Our honeymoon was perfect and I feel that was because of the hard work that Gurvinder had done for us.

Mike and Chelsea

Until we called and spoke with the nice folks at Gurvy Travel. The entire process,right from the start could not have been easier or more enjoyable! We got multiple options based on our destination of Negril, Jamaica and from these options we chose Couples Swept Away. The resort far exceeded our expectations in pretty much every way possible! We had tons of great information ahead of time so we could see much of what we would be experiencing once in Jamaica and this really helped. Gurvinder took the time to really understand what we were looking for on this trip and understand all of the things on our wish list. This vacation was one of the best trips we have ever taken and we can’t wait to return. When we are ready to book our trip back to Jamaica or any other vacation destination in the future, we know exactly who to call! Thanks Gurvy Travel for taking care of every detail from start to finish and for a truly fabulous experience!
