I believe that Time is our most precious commodity and we must spend it wisely. Travel is an investment, and having been to all 7 continents, I am a well-traveled Travel Investment Advisor.
Think of me as a buyer's agent for affluent travelers and group leaders. They benefit by receiving an authentic experience that is a good value.
I advise on luxury travel for select individual clients and with the Apex certification from Travel Leaders, I am able to offer American Express Platinum & Centurion members services including Membership Rewards Pay with Points.
With regard to the luxury category, I am honored to have been selected as an American Express Pacesetter and as a Tauck Academy Certified Agent, two designations that are not easy to obtain. When working with VIP clients for vacation travel or sabbaticals, our clients travel worry-free knowing that we are very discreet and information is never leaked or shared.
President, Group Expert & Luxury Specialist 843-279-0310
As the President of Michael Graham & Associates, this business is a labor of love derived from my fantastic journeys over the past 30 years. I enjoy advising on travel almost as much as finding and curating new custom experiences, by scouting and traveling myself.
I have visited every continent, nearly 100 countries, and many hundreds of cities. In addition to many other methods of travel, I have sailed on over 40 ocean & river cruises, and on virtually every brand.
I have had the pleasure of personally guiding many organizations around the world (over 50 countries), hosting large groups by sea and land, and organizing complicated itineraries.
While I have an excellent understanding of group travel through luxury and beyond, I also love crafting one of a kind experiences in a safe and comfortable environment.
The best value I can bring you is the optimization of your most valuable asset: time. What you want is an authentic experience directed by insider knowledge. My clients are engaged in all levels of travel - check the testimonials - but they are not having to search for the "best of" because I have already certified it (i.e. Graham's Guide).
Michael is a VTA certified expert and also gives travel talks to consumer, trade, and corporate events.
My success is from the grace of God. I work hard to demonstrate that every day. Certainly I can't do it alone - meet our team.

*Please note that in extremely unusual cases we charge a planning fee for completely custom designed itineraries that are not otherwise part of a cruise or tour. In such rare cases, we would advise you that you would incur a fee if you still wish to proceed.
When booking separate airfare that is not provided by a tour operator or cruise line, we charge a ticketing fee for international air of $100 per person and domestic air fee of $30 per person. The fee will be waived if booked as part of a supplier package. Please note that travel suppliers may have ticketing, deviation, custom air, or stopover fees.
Before booking any international air we require copies of your passports. Cancelling a scheduled appointment is fine but no shows will incur a $50 fee.
MGA Travel does not book any all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean or Mexico.
