Maria Galvao

Your Travel Consultant

I am an adventurous traveler, a researcher, and a problem solver. I love puzzles, maps, and people. I love culture, food, history, art, and architecture. There is so much to see and share in this amazing world!

I created Maria’s Travel because I thrive on building new and different itineraries that connect cultures and gastronomy, as well as building healthy bridges between people of all backgrounds and ethnicities. This is my forte and what I am passionate about. I enjoy building and creating unforgettable memories for travelers. I want my clients to feel exhilarated about their vacations and come home with many stories to tell their friends and family, and memories that will last throughout their lives. —Maria Galvao
