For over 30 years, Connoisseur Travel has brought our expert travel agency services to the Washington, D.C. area. We are proud to be an industry leader, bringing unique travel experiences to a community in the business of leadership.

The company was founded by George and Cathy Hagle, who are still actively involved in the operation as Chairman and President, respectively. Their insightful expertise in the service business has led Connoisseur through decades of change and growth. From two agents in 1988, we now employ over 55 professionals. Our travel counselors' average length of service with Connoisseur Travel is over 10 years.

We are extremely proud to be one of the remaining independent agencies in the District of Columbia, employing local travel professionals and encouraging growth and vitality in the Washington travel industry. Hallmarks of our service include personal attention to detail, an outside-the-box approach, flexibility, and value. Our culture encourages and rewards excellence in service and going the extra mile for our clients.

Given our size and experience, we are large enough to manage your needs, but small enough to deliver personal care with hands-on management.
