Sylvia Betesh Lebovitch
SL Travel Advisors / Ovation Travel Group
New York, NY, USA
The Luxury travel industry has really captivated me and has become my passion over the past 11 years. I fell in love with Italy during my study-abroad program and my love for the country has only grown as I explore lesser known regions. I am currently the founder and senior travel advisor of SL Travel Advisors, an affiliate of Ovation Travel Group based in New York. My previous career was as a registered dietitian so I enjoy including wellness into my trips while not compromising “la dolce vita”. As a new parent, I am very in tune to what families need, especially those traveling with young children. Happy kids make happy parents! . My biggest reward is always the positive feedback I get from clients, especially young honeymooners who are just beginning their lives together and possibly using a large portion of their well-earned savings for their most special trip. It is the one time they really want to be blown away and that gives me the opportunity to be creative beyond the normal romantic turndown. Personal touches and human connection are truly what elevates a trip. Multi-generational trips are also one of my favorites because I love the challenge of finding activities to engage all ages and bringing families together. Grandparents truly feel that capturing these moments with their children and grandchildren and priceless.
