The Globe Bleu team is thrilled to announce the appointment of company founder & President Robert Preston for the third year in a row to Travel + Leisure magazine’s A List of the top 133 travel agents on the planet. According to Travel + Leisure, “these power brokers are the most informed and well connected in the travel industry.”
The publication states, “In [our] 13th annual A-List, we showcase the best specialists in the business—those who can book you into sold-out hotels, introduce you to the most keyed-in local guides, and much more.”
Robert is honored and humbled to be listed among the travel industry elite again in 2014, and was selected particularly for his expertise in France.
A graduate of France’s INSEAD business school who has lived in the Alps and Paris, and on the Côte d’Azur, Preston prides himself on delivering exceptional access to his clients. He knows the country’s influencers and tastemakers, and is able to open doors to a marquis’s private estate just outside Paris, for example—that are typically off-limits to travelers.
Special booking For a family visiting Provence, Preston planned hands-on activities, including treasure hunts in remote villages in the Lubéron, Provençal cooking classes, and workshops with artists who are experts on Cézanne.
