Ilbra Yacoob

Encino, California Travel Agent
Luxury Culinary Travel Advisor
Connecting travelers with local culture and the land through their taste buds. There is a romance tied to every ingredient’s origin that should never go unnoticed. Whether you are a chef, a foodie or simply a traveler who wants to engage more deeply with the people of the places you travel, I can arrange luxury itineraries that include extraordinary and revealing culinary and wine travel experiences. My appreciation for the land also has led me to specialize in eco-tourism adventures.

Travel magic!
Ilbra is an extraordinary professional with a wonderfully personal approach. I have used her for group travel for highly customized travel, solo travel, last minute plans, changes, domestic, international, Covid-related travel issues, middle of the night issues, and more. Truly, she's magical, comprehensive, and superbly competent! I challenge you to find something she can't figure out!

The best of Scotland, planned to perfection.
Ilbra was outstanding from start to finish in planning our “guys trip” to Scotland. Even down to the smallest detail, everything was perfectly and thoughtfully planned. We could not have been happier, and we can’t wait to have her plan our next trip!

Dream Vacation
I have utilized Ilbra’s services for years and could write a book, but I won’t. Suffice to say, she is the best.

Memorable Trip
Ilbra helped us with our first Europe trip to Greece (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini). She was excellent to work with. She was extremely helpful and very detailed with her communication. She guided us throughout the process and gave us very helpful tips and advices to make our trip a pleasant experience. She really exceeded our expectations at every moment.

Greece getaway
Ilbra was professional and prompt. She planned our last minute trip to Europe and it was flawless. The itinerary and transportations she arranged made our vacation the most wonderful experience. Ilbra was always available for questions and very informative. Highly recommend her!

Why Use A Travel Agent
A friend recently asked us, “why do you use a travel agent?” Travel is not what it used to be (and my travel desires have expanded). My simplest answer is “because things can go wrong!” Ilbra has an attention to detail and she follows up. She remains calm when we throw last minute issues or questions at her. She reaches out and provides amazing assistance. She found us the perfect trip when our cruise was canceled, after we had already arrived in South America. What could have been a nightmare turned into a dream come true.

A perfect trip!
Ilbra was such an asset to my trip planning. It was a daunting task traveling to India for our daughter's wedding and we wanted to make the best use of the time that we had there. She was responsive to all of my many emails, heard my requests and was patient with the changes I requested throughout the process. She was able to connect us to colleagues in India who provided reliable and impeccable service from picking us up at the airport to escorting us on private tours. Ilbra epitomizes professionalism and service and does it with the utmost grace and skill. I cannot recommend her more highly.

A Sip of France !
Working with Ilbra was a first class experience from start to finish. She responded immediately to our inquiry and completed a basic itinerary to complete as we go. She has fabulous and her Virtuoso contacts were the top of Luxury. She has a positive attitude, was supportive and accessible throughout planning and during our entire 2 week trip.
