Area(s) of expertise: France, London, Southwest Germany
Summary of expertise:
Howard E Lewis, CTC, is a luxury agent for Protravel International in Beverly Hills specializing in touring and self-driving in France, Southwest Germany (the Black Forest), the United Kingdom, particularly London, and European River cruises. Howard has been in the business for 39 years and has traveled extensively abroad during those years. He has focused on France for the past 26 years – traveling to France four times a year for 3 to 4 weeks per year and has visited every region many times over.
Referring to himself as “more of an old fashioned ‘downtown crowd’ person,” Howard also knows countless insider tips for London. Because his Edwardian grandparents went to their townhouse in Mayfair from Boston from 1918 to 1960 for the London season – which lasted from approximate February to July – he has spent a lot of time there.
Wherever his clients travel, Howard wants to give them advice and information, so that when they land, they become part of that country’s culture and rhythm and are more than just a tourist.
Howard’s best travel tip: Travel today is more challenging than ever before and to lessen that stress, why not consider sending your luggage ahead and have it waiting for you on arrival at your hotel. I can offer you a luggage forwarding service that will do that at a moderate price.
