Brinker Wolf

3 Years of experience

The joy Brinker derives from enriching experiences is his motivation for planning exceptional travel for his clients.

After spending seventeen years running restaurants in Chicago, Brinker decided to pursue a career in his other passion–travel. The guest experience has always been very important to Brinker; working in hospitality for nearly two decades has taught Brinker how to be a great listener–a skill that helps him understand the unique needs of travelers. Brinker has been fortunate enough to travel all over the world and loves using those experiences to help create itineraries for others. Even before he got into the travel industry, he was constantly sharing hotel, restaurant, and travel advice with friends and family; Brinker finds it extremely rewarding when his suggestions help make trips memorable.

What inspired you to become a travel agent?

After planning trips for my friends and family, I realized I truly love the research process. I really enjoy learning about new destinations and finding restaurants or shops that are off-the-beaten-path. Some of my favorite trips have been to Nantucket, Hawaii, the Maldives, Colorado, and various locations throughout Europe. I’m excited to create similar experiences for others.

What hotels do you go back to again and again?

It’s very hard to pass up a Four Seasons! Their customer service is incredible and the properties are always in the best condition. The Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea is one of my favorite destinations because they cater to all types of travelers from honeymooners to families. My sons love the Kids Club, especially lighting the torches in the evening and making new friends during the daily activities and the adults-only pool is a great place to relax and unwind.

Travel Tip

  • The benefit of local knowledge should not be underestimated. Never be afraid to ask a question when in a new city or country. You never know where it may lead you. You’ll find some of the best restaurants, bars and experiences when you take a chance and ask.
