Claudia Austin

Travel has always been a big part of Claudia Austin’s life. Childhood trips to Nicaragua and Peru to visit family sparked a curiosity that has led her to explore the world. From Europe to Africa to South America, Claudia has had many unforgettable trips, and in 2012, she decided to start her career as a travel advisor to help others experience the world.

Claudia works closely with clients to understand their interests and preferences. Using her extensive list of global contacts, she loves matching each client with the perfect activity and tour. Book lovers will visit the most beautiful libraries and bookstores, horse aficionados will meet the best horse whisperers, and art enthusiasts will go behind the scenes to see their favorite pieces of work. Claudia believes that travel is all about opening up the world to your senses and having experiences that you will never forget.

Prior to owning Claudia Austin Travel, she worked in the hospitality industry in San Francisco for over 12 years. Her tenure as concierge at the Sir Francis Drake, Guest Services Manager at the CLIFT, and Front Office Manager at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins has given her a deep understanding of exceeding client expectations and the importance of exceptional service.
