Ciao!

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

We set up Super Savvy Travelers to be a full-service travel agency to bring you the best travel deals and experiences. We specialize in Mediterranean and Caribbean cruises, and in European land tours.

We spend much of our time at our second home in Santa Domenica Talao in Calabria, Italy, and through this have gained much knowledge and experience in travel in Italy.

We believe the most important part of any travel experience is the connection you make with people, and we strive to incorporate this aspect of travel in all of our travel planning for our clients.

Whether your dream includes a cruise to the beautiful islands of the Caribbean or any of the magnificent river cruises in Europe,  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 to show up for your vacation!

And of course, if you want to see the real Italy, we can book photographers’ 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.

About Us

In life, there are essentially two things that we all treasure above anything  else: experiences, and connection with others.

As travelers, we understand that experiences must be new and exciting to keep us riveted without being overwhelming.

We also know that the most important factors in any experiences are the people involved and the connections we make with them.

Super Savvy Travelers understands this. Our mission is to bring you the most unforgettable experiences along with the best opportunities to create lifelong connections.

This is how we create the best travel experiences you can find anywhere.

Everywhere we go we have friends. Because of this the world is a very friendly place.

We want this for you.

Pete and I have always been sea loving people. We adore the bright colors, fragrant spices and warm and lovely people of the Caribbean.

We also love the history, art and culture (and warm and lovely people) who live near the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas in Europe and especially in Italy.

in 2011, we purchased a home in Santa Domenica Talao in Calabria, Italy.  It has been a treasure trove of new and wonderful experiences and lifelong friendships.

Our home is a perfect jumping-off point for all of Europe,  Africa, and the Middle East, with an endless array of travel opportunities to these locations.

Pete Sobolev is an experienced traveler,  having worked for many years leading global engineering teams that provided opportunities for frequent travel to the Far East and Europe.

Pete has gathered too many travel tips to list on one page. He is the epitome of a Super Savvy Traveler and a fantastic photographer.

He can’t wait to share his tips with you.
