Fred Schejtman

General Manager & Travel Experts Team Leader

With over 15 years experience in the travel industry, Fred has become a respected and acclaimed expert. His knowledge and expertise are only surpassed by his ability to roll all of that know-how into a personalized fashion; delivering a First-Class, Worry-Free and unparalleled level of service to our guests.
When not catering to our company's beloved guests, Fred is spending quality time with his 2 children and wife, traveling the world, or rocking his guitar.

"Fred would be the only person we would call to plan a perfectly executed customized trip." - Neal and Barbara Eisner

"I truly wish Fred could plan all of our future trips - He's priceless!" - Barbara and Timothy Blair

"Fred is a perfectionist and treats his clients professionally. This trip turned out to be the trip of a lifetime - absolutely unforgettable thanks to Fred!" - Neal And Barbara Eisner

"When one of our bags did not arrive in Iguazu, Fred was able to trace it immediately and arranged delivery to our hotel within a few hours." - Maria Ester and Ponciano Bautista

"Fred put together an outstanding itinerary and even made a personal appearance when we needed some emergency medical assistance. We would never have been able to work through a Buenos Aires emergency room like we did, without him. If it had it not been for his assistance, we would have missed our same day flight connection and some of the very best parts of the trip." - Joe and Mary Mahoney

"Thank you Fred for your outstanding service and personal approach especially arranging a wheelchair for my husband when he fell down in Iguassu. We did not miss a single spot in Iguassu to enjoy!" - Sujata & Jyotirjiban Bhattacharya

"Our honeymoon couldn't have worked out any better. We had a fantastic trip from start to finish and we can't thank Fred enough." - Robin Osullivan and Gillian Brohan

"Fred went above and beyond, when I was rushed to the hospital in Buenos Aires for appendicitis. He came to the hospital frequently during my stay, providing essential Spanish-English translation between the doctors, nurses, and us." - Louise Laurence and Douglas Hamilton

"The meticulous attention to detail and personal service was unsurpassed. Our trip to Argentina was one of the best vacations we have taken, and absolutely stress free thanks to Fred and Exploration Journeys!" - Stephen and Elizabeth Trehu

"Just prior to leaving the US, Wanda experienced an injury to her leg necessitating the use of a cane and wheelchair... Had Fred not been there, and had the tour guides he chose not been who they were, this trip could have been a total disaster. Instead, it was, without a doubt, the best trip ever." - Russell Haig and Wanda Wood

"Throughout our trip we felt that we always had a 'guardian angel' watching over us." - Mary & Douglas Gregory and Family

"Most impressive, however, was the reaction of Fred when we could have been stranded at one of our sites because of an airline strike. He immediately responded with effective action in finding flights for continuing our journey. It is not an overstatement that he saved the latter part of our vacation!" - Don and Nancy Tortorice

"Fred covered every basis so there was no room for error or confusion." - Wendy Murrian and Frances Jones

"All the guides, drivers, services, punctuality, etc. were excellent. But the jewel of the crown was Fred's professionalism and great understanding." - Wael Ismail and Khawla Al Masri
