I'm Claudia, German by birth and global nomad by heart. I was born and raised in East Germany before jet-setting off into the world, visiting 100+ countries as of today. It's hard to pick favorites but I'll say if you haven't traveled to Greece, South Korea, or Tanzania yet, you need to add it to your list.


My passion for travel comes from my grandparents. They would take me on annual family vacations to the Turkish Riviera and Mallorca when I was just five years old. I remember feeling a rush of excitement when exploring a new place. Traveling wasn't allowed in East Germany until the wall fell in 1989 so before then my grandfather Horst would regale me with stories of his travel agent friend. I remember thinking, "a job traveling and helping others travel? Sign me up!"


After school, I moved to London to pursue my travel and hospitality dreams. I was then sent to Zanzibar where I helped open a boutique hotel in picturesque Nungwi Beach. I changed it up and started working aboard luxury cruise ships, traveling at sea for six months at a time and spending a lot of time exploring places like the Arctic, Australia, and circumnavigating Africa. I then moved to the United States and won the Green Card Lottery in 2012 where I lived in the flashy town of Las Vegas and the tourist destination of Santa Barbara, CA.


I've been lucky to explore everywhere from the remote corners of the world to high-end luxury escapes to popular hot spots and I want to create the same for you. These will be the stories you talk about for years to come and I'm honored to guide you on this journey. If you're a meticulous planner who wants to see it all or if you're more go-with-the-flow, I'll attune the trip to your pace. For the LGBTQIA+ community, I'm aware and knowledgeable of the unique experience we face when traveling to new areas. Each country has different cultures and laws, so I'll help you navigate your destination in the best way possible with whatever vibe you're seeking.

Amazing India Trip

"Claudia is awesome to work with! She takes the time to understand what her clients want in their travel experience and ensures those expectations are not just met but exceeded. Claudia is so knowledgeable which allows her to plan the perfect trip. Claudia has planned two once-in-a-lifetime trips for us and each one was perfect from start to finish. Can’t wait for her to help with our next adventure!" A&M

Incredibly helpful

"My partner and I have worked with Claudia now for several years on long trips to Europe (one of them for 12 months). She is very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and most of all thorough with her assistance. As we continue to travel, we will always enlist the help of Claudia. Highly recommend." C&J

Hidden Gems of Japan

It was a dream I had nurtured for years – to explore the enchanting land of Japan. The thought of experiencing its rich history, vibrant culture, and bustling cities had always intrigued me. Finally, the day had come when I embarked on a journey through Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka and aboard the Star Breeze.

Fantastic trip to Thailand
We couldn’t have been happier with the amazing trip Claudia arranged for us to travel through Thailand for 3 weeks. She listened to our desire to have a balance of activity and relaxation, and to experience authentic Thai accommodations that were absolutely stunning. Claudia was always available for any questions or last minute changes both before and during our trip. We were amazed that, without exception, every single time we either had to fly , or be driven somewhere, or take a boat , or be driven to a boat to be met by a driver at the other end - no matter what manner of transport we had to take - someone was at the location waiting for us. It was seamless and we had zero stress about getting from place to place. We highly recommend Claudia to take care of your holiday plans.

Mystery Trip to Kenya
Claudia planned an amazing mystery trip for us to East Africa. I highly recommend trying it - we could not decide where to go, having traveled extensively in the past we just passed the baton to Claudia and she worked her magic. We gave her a few guidelines, place we've already visited, a budget and she did an amazing job. She even included the most wonderful experiences and welcome gifts in each hotel along the way - thank you!

A Very Special Trip
We are senior citizens who haven’t been out of the country in decades and were leery about arranging a trip ourselves to Greece before meeting a prearranged tour group in Israel. A friend of ours recommended Travel Leaders 365 and we were paired with Claudia Pascua. Right from the start she listened to our aspirations and concerns and asked questions that we didn’t even think of. She did an amazing job for us in Greece which included tours, hotels, transfers and airline tickets. Little did we know that the day before we were to fly to Greece, Israel declared war ending our tour of Israel. No matter how many times we spoke to Claudia she was always professional, kind, and gave us different options while her air team worked on getting us a ticket back home. As a result of her expertise, our trip was very special. We highly recommend Claudia and the company and plan to use them in the future.

A Good Time Was Had By All!
Claudia met our every need planning the 30th anniversary trip for my husband and me. She introduced herself and asked just the right questions to get a feel of the type of travelers we are. During the planning phase she kept us fully informed of pricing and dates. When done, Claudia had put together the perfect trip. All we had to do was show up at the airport. During our travels, every aspect was arranged with spot on detail that met our every expectation. Claudia saw to it that we felt pampered and celebrated for our occasion. As far as the lodging, the places Claudia booked for us were perfectly matched to our needs and desires. We could not have asked for anything more. To say that we would highly recommend Claudia is way less than we wish to say. Her passion for what she does completely came through and in the end, she booked a most memorable trip making it one of our most favorite lifetime adventures thus far.
