The genesis of River Oaks Travel began and grew through the maturation of a mutual admiration. As Dasha and Cristina separately built their own luxury concierge travel agencies, they began to see each other more and more frequently at industry meetings, consortium events, and in international travel event settings. There, they began to see and experience a commonalty of purpose, and over time earned admiration and mutual respect by observing each other’s innovative, dedicated, and comprehensive drive for their own agency’s growth and success.
Becoming friends while at the same time “friendly” competition, they began to realize and discover that their greatest potential could be realized by working together. In October of 2017, the discussion of an actual combination was begun, and over the next several months it became apparent that the combination would bear fruit, and that together they could be more successful than apart. The seeds of River Oaks Travel were planted exactly a year later, with the goal of becoming Houston’s premier and finest luxury concierge travel agency. Stay tuned as we continue the legacy of humble, devoted beginnings that will propel River Oaks Travel into the future of leisure travel – always with an eye and ear for excellence and invention.
