Conde’ Nast Traveler Magazine has honored Kleon of The Art of Travel for the 10th year in a row as Top Travel Specialist for French Polynesia and The Cook Islands in their listing of Top Travel Specialists in their December issue.

Here is what Conde’ Nast Traveler Magazine’s Wendy Perrin says of the list that she has organized over the years.

The travel planners collected here represent the best blend of destination knowledge, insider connections, user-friendliness, and value for your dollar that I’ve found in more than two decades of scrutinizing the travel industry for this magazine. They have almost all been road-tested by Condé Nast Traveler readers, editors, or both. Of the more than 10,000 travel agents and tour operators who have tried to break onto this list since its inception 13 years ago, only a tiny fraction have made the grade—this year, 150 specialists. Getting into this group is, statistically speaking, tougher than getting into Harvard. Staying on it is tougher still: It requires not only an absence of valid reader complaints but also ongoing positive assessments from readers.”
