As additional peace of mind for our clientele, Travel to Paradise is proud to be able to display the numerous certifications and commendations we've acquired throughout the years.


Hawaii Visitors Bureau Certifications - The Hawaii Visitors and Conventions Bureau is the resource for Hawaiian vacations and creator of GoHawaii.com, Hawaii’s official tourism site. In a nutshell, my Hawaii Visitors Bureau designations signify that I have completed rigorous training and education to become a Hawaiian Islands specialist and have earned the coveted Hawaii Tourism Authority’s seal of approval as a recommended travel agent (yay!). The Bureau runs certification programs for each island and there are different tiers of certification travel agents can achieve.
