Luxury Travel Advisor

Gwen Pullman Trucco

A passion for travel and adventure is in my blood. My father owned Lake Forest Travel in the 70’s and I was infected by the travel bug. My earliest memories include being whisked away every year with my five siblings to our place on the then very remote Caribbean island of Nevis. Each trip involved stopping on a different island on the way to discover new hotels for my father to add to his travel agency portfolio. To this day, that home in Nevis remains in our family and I’ve become close friends with many locals over the years. In addition to accumulating a large knowledge base from having visited and evaluated many high end properties throughout the Caribbean, I provide a unique understanding of Caribbean life from my life long intimate attachment to that island and the region as a whole.

In addition to my extensive knowledge of the Caribbean, I have travelled to and researched locales that range from the traditional destinations such as Ireland (where my daughter was married) and Western Europe to far more exotic ones such as Nepal, Tanzania, Botswana and Slovenia. Along the way, I have skied the Dolomites in Italy, trekked for a week around Mont Blanc, roamed the fells of the Lake District in the UK, slept at 13,500 ft. at Annapurna base camp in Nepal, and gone foraging for food with the Hadzas of Tanzania, the last hunter-gatherer tribe in Africa. Yes, I love adventure! I love the outdoors, nature and being inspired by new places and new people. That’s not to say I don’t love creature comforts like the hotel spa, cocktail bar and dining room! Through work and personal travel, I’ve had the good fortune to eat at Michelin starred restaurants and stay at four and five starred hotels globally.

Adventure comes in many forms and I believe that the unique breadth of my adventures gives me the perspective and insight needed to create the ideal travel experience for you.

Michele | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Gwen has gotten to know what I expect after the first trip cruising the Mediterranean. She hasn't let me down after my second trip to Iceland and Copenhagen. I can't say enough about how all details were taken care of and the first class service I've received from her and Lake Forest Travel. I don't need to find another travel agent. Ever!

My husband and I scheduled a trip to Costa Rica with Gwen. The trip options were great, and provided very good detail on excursions. She made sure we were picked up at the airport. The overall trip was excellent.
Fun trip! | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Gwen was very responsive and had good ideas and insights to our trip. We will use Gwen again on our next trip to Europe. She saved us money and got us better service at hour hotels and travel tix.

The Kimpton Monoco in Washington D.C. was an excellent suggestion by Gwen. It is full of history and is actually owned by the Smithsonian Institute but managed by the Kimpton Hotel Company. Perfect location directly next door to the International Spy Museum and 4 blocks from the National Mall. All Tourist sights are within walking distance. Thank you Gwen.
OrlandoPaul | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Gwen booked our tour of Normandy France and then the Champagne region and both were excellent! We had the same driver on all 3 days and he was outstanding. Everything went perfectly. Thank you.
Ger | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
She was very insightful when we had questions about specific honeymoon locations. She knew a lot about each location and would respond in a timely manner.
Austin | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Gwen was professional in every way and very enjoyable with whom to work. She kept us informed at each step in the process and her document preparation was meticulous. We loved our hotels and enjoyed the Tauck Rhine Cruise on their new ship. She was very responsible to select our BA seats for us on both ends of the flights 24 hours ahead of time. We could not pre-select them without an extra fee since we wanted to book through AA. Gwen was a delight and we were always very confident that she would send us in the right direction.
Debbie C | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Because of illness, it was necessary to cancel my trip. Gwen had been a tremendous help in putting our trip together. She worked hard and put together a great trip for my wife and me. After I had to cancel, she continued with heroic efforts to help us with our trip cancellation insurance claim. We believe that we can arrange to take our trip later in the year and would not consider going to anyone else for help.
Jack | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Gwen was extremely helpful in arranging reservations at the Oberoi hotels in India. I had already made the reservation, but in talking to Gwen found out LF Travel could take over the reservation. It was not a simple process, but she persisted. She was also able to secure a breakfast and lunch for our third party in the room. The hotels were amazing, hard to describe how perfect the properties were and the service. I wish we could have stayed longer at the hotels, especially the Oberoi Rajvilas. The luxury tent villa was such a treat for us. At the hotel we did the cooking class, which was a lot of fun, interesting ... and delicious. thank you for your great service!
Marietta | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
We have never used a travel agent before and I am so appreciate of Gwen and Lake Forest Travel for this first experience. Gwen was so helpful in planning our last minute trip to Europe. All documents and materials were provided with explicit details. We had 6 plane stops plus rented a car and drove across three countries. She really listened when I was explaining what are wants and needs were for the trip. We have not experienced any issues with the trip and it was very smooth. Gwen was also so helpful and kind with all of my questions before we left (as there were many). I had everything I needed at every stop. I know I couldn't have planned this trip with Gwen's help and assistance. We will be returning customers!
Donelle | Agent: Gwen Pullman Trucco
Gwen totally identified the perfect property for us to stay in at Costa Rica. The condo and the amenities fit our family expectations above and beyond. We had a wonderful time at Los Suenos Resort. The nearby activities were plentiful for us to pick and choose from. Thanks!
