"We're delighted to announce this year's A-List, which guides our audience of passionate travelers to the most qualified travel advisors in the business," said Nathan Lump, Editor-in-Chief of Travel + Leisure. "These seasoned professionals are true experts in creating exceptional trips for their clients, delivering unparalleled access to places and experiences that would otherwise be out of reach."

This year's list includes experts in destinations ranging from Italy to Namibia to Japan, those who specialize in special interests like golf and honeymoons, and experts in popular types of trips, including cruises and safaris. Readers of the September issue of Travel + Leisure can find descriptions of each advisor and his or her specialties in an organized directory; visitors to TravelandLeisure.com can find them via a new search tool, in which they can enter trip parameters—location, interests, budget—to locate the perfect advisor for their needs.

To create the list, Travel + Leisure editors evaluated hundreds of luxury travel advisors to determine which ones best serve the brand's audience. After receiving input from industry experts, including the T+L Travel Advisory Board (owners and operators of some of the most successful travel agencies in North America, who consult with Travel + Leisure on industry and consumer trends), Travel + Leisure vets each advisor for unique itineraries, exclusive access, and positive client testimonials. Once Travel + Leisure selects the list, each advisor is invited to join a membership program, which covers the cost of a range of benefits designed to connect A-Listers to readers, including a profile in a searchable database on TravelandLeisure.com.
