Long before I established Josh Friedman Luxury Travel I started in the travel business in the early 80s working for 'the' top luxury cruise line Royal Viking Line, right here in Embarcadero One on the 39th floor. Later on, I worked for the next 'the' top cruise line, Seabourn at 55 Francisco St. (by then Royal Viking was just a memory).
In between I moved to Laguna Beach, became a luxury focused travel agent, moved back to San Francisco and after working in marketing at IDC and Clorox decided to return to the travel agency business.
Originally, I'm from Miami Beach by way of Los Angeles, and moved to San Francisco right after graduating from UCSD. I also studied at the University of Florence (in Italy) and New York University, with a major in Art History and minor in foreign languages, mostly Italian.
I've been around to most parts of the world, with well over 20 trips each to Europe and Hawaii. My clients come from all walks of life and include honeymoon couples, successful entrepreneurs, retired executives, working executives, professors, scientists, and others who love to travel well.
The last 8 years have been great and I'm glad to be here to help you plan your customized luxury vacation, cruise, honeymoon or luxury hotel stay.
