Welcome to Super Savvy Travelers. We are Chris and Pete Sobolev.

In 2011 we purchased a centuries-old home in the hilltop village of Santa Domenica Talao, Calabria, Italy.

We have never looked back.

Since that time we have travelled to so many places we might never have discovered.

We have also had many opportunities to visit and fall in love with the beautiful colors, beaches, food and warm people of the Caribbean.

We have made friends we will cherish all our lives and we have had experiences so magical that we will never forget them.

Through our travels, we’ve found that two of the most valuable things in life are experiences and connections with others. Unforgettable travel, the magic, the memories are all dependent on these two things.

Our travels, our lives and our site are all about perfect experiences that are new and exciting enough to keep us riveted but not overwhelmed.

We love and focus on the Caribbean and Mediterranean and Aegean Seas and surrounding areas.

The most important part of any experience is the connection you make with people. It is the sharing of a beautiful culture, the joys and the sorrows of people whose lives are so different than our own.

Whether your dream includes a cruise to the beautiful islands of the Caribbean or any of the magnificent river cruises in Europe, ocean cruises in the Mediterranean and Aegean, or land tours anywhere in Europe, we can handle everything for you so all you have to do is show up.

And of course, if you want to see the real Italy we can book photographer’s tours, culinary tours, shopping tours or any tour you could possibly dream up.

We are an independent agency in the Avoya travel network. This network of over 1,000 independent agents allows us to offer you special pricing and amenities through the buying power of Avoya.
