FOUNDER & DIRECTOR LINDA REITZELL-BERNSTEIN

We started Sunset Travel in 1991 after a head-on car crash. Initially specializing in assisting others who have decreased mobility issues, the business has grown to include: honeymooners, groups, families and all able-bodied vacationers looking for personal service. Certified to sell travel (educated through the Institute of Travel Agents), licensed to sell travel insurance and holding certifications from suppliers (listed above) I continue to enhance my education in this exciting business. As an on-going CLIA member over all the years that the business has existed, many classes in selling and understanding the cruise industry have helped to perfect this growing aspect of our business. Formerly a Board member with the Association of Travel Agents of America, I played a role in providing excellent learning opportunities for other travel agents.

I also hold a B.A. in Psychology and previously owned a company that provided Public Relations services in the North Bay area where I continue to reside. This background has helped me to assist both special needs and able-bodied travelers.

In addition, I have written travel articles for a local newspaper. My desire is to share more of my personal travel stories; encouraging those with special needs to take the risk of finding out more about the amazing world we live in, is a personal goal. I continue to be amazed at the sights, sounds and feelings that comprise the travel experience. Listening to my clients’ needs is an important aspect of my personal style.

PARTNER & CONSULTANT SAM BERNSTEIN

I am a partner in Sunset Travel. Formerly I worked in the wine industry and as a professional photographer. We use my photos to enhance power point presentations and website info about travel.

Together, Linda and I have travelled to over 25 countries. I've assisted her with traversing unknown surfaces in one of our several travelling wheelchairs, some of which she's worn out. Many locations would have been totally inaccessible without my accompaniment and assistance.

Because of our love of Europe and the convenience of rail travel there, I've specialized in Sunset's train travel itineraries in this part of the world. In addition to Europe, we have travelled extensively in the Western U.S., Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, The Caribbean and Alaska. I recently travelled to Australia for the second year in a row as an Aussie Specialist. I continue to explore and immerse myself in the local points of interest. In this way, I can best prepare our clients for their own exciting experiences down under.

In 2002 I graduated from the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) Institute and have since put together several of our cruise groups and look forward to doing more of these for our friends and clients. I became a specialist for premium cruise line Oceania in 2011.
