About Vantage

Advisory Board

To ensure that your voice is well represented, Vantage regularly consults an Advisory Board of past travelers. The Advisory Board provides advice and suggestions on our programs and services. We value their input and use it to make important decisions that ultimately shape the quality of our Memorable Journeys.

Our Advisory Board members welcome emails or phone calls about their Vantage experience or individual journeys they have taken. See below for member contact information and a list of trips each has taken. To email a board member, simply type their email address into your email program.

For customer-service related questions or specific issues, we ask that you do not contact our Advisory Board members. Instead, you should contact Vantage Customer Service toll-free at 1-888-982-6824, or simply click here to e-mail us.
