2021 marks Craig Corey's 47th year selling travel! It's been an exciting journey in an industry of ongoing changes, and Craig continues to discover innovative ways to evolve his business, keeping it fresh and client-focused over time.
He was always drawn to unique and memorable travel experiences. In 1985 Craig was promoting private passenger orbits in Outer Space that were to be scheduled, at a cost of around $100,000. His ingenuity caught the attention of local media, and television crews from around Michigan.
What's the best thing you ever ate? "Oh, no question,
it's a Mont-Blanc pastry at La Maison Angelina in Paris.
This is a dessert with a meringue base, piled high with
extrusions of chestnut purée, then filled with fresh
whipped cream!" -Craig Corey
"I was always forward-thinking," remembers Craig. He was promoting off-the-beaten path destinations like reindeer safaris in Finland, or hot-air ballooning over Burgundy. He was constantly touting cultural benefits of life-changing travel, even trying to talk unsure customers out of a do-nothing beach vacation, into something culturallly mind-blowing. "I knew early on that luxury travel was the core of my future business."
What's your favorite travel destination? "Look, you
can't have just one favorite place! I mean, I love New
York, and who doesn't love Paris? And I will never
forget the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, or an
elephant trek in India, or swimming next to a whale-
shark in Cendrawahsi Bay, Indonesia! And you might
be surprised by the majesty of cruising on
our own Mississippi River!" -Craig Corey
Ever since he established the award-winning Craig Corey Vacations he has continued to look forward in his commitment to providing custom-designed, first-rate boutique travel.
