“In over 30 years a an editor at Yankee Magazine I have worked with countless travel writers. Steve Jermanok’s background and knowledge about what makes a destination or experience special for travelers is second to none.”
Mel Allen, Editor-In-Chief, Yankee Magazine

“With several decades of experience reporting on travel destinations and products, Steve Jermanok and Lisa Leavitt know what can make or break a trip. They understand that authentic human encounters, from the people who guide your tour to the locals you meet along the way, are just as important to creating lasting memories as the sights you'll be visiting. And their first-hand knowledge of hundreds of destinations, tour operators, airlines, cruises and hotels is invaluable in avoiding missteps when designing your adventure.”
Dennis Pinto, Managing Director, Micato Safaris

“Steve Jermanok is a prolific writer who uses words to create an almost sensory experience that transports readers to destinations around the world.”
Lisa Matte, Editor-In-Chief, Global Traveler Magazine

“I've always been impressed by Steve's knowledge of everything New England (not surprising as he's written several books on that topic). He's a true expert, a polished author and a genuinely nice guy.”
Pauline Frommer, Frommer’s Travel Guides

“As a longtime travel journalist, I have been all over the world and seen and done a lot of things, but I still call Steve when I need expert advice. Whether it's family travel or adventure travel - or just a good place to eat in Boston - I don't know a more knowledgeable person. I've known him for about 15 years and in all that time, none of his recommendations ever let me down.”
Larry Olmsted, The Great Life Columnist, Forbes.com

“Steve has been on many trips with us and has written many great articles for us about his experiences. We appreciate that he recognizes our authenticity and can capture it in words for others to read about and share.”
Polly Mahoney, Mahoosuc Guide Service, Registered Maine Guides

“Steve Jermanok, whom I have known for more than six years, is the quintessential travel enthusiast - he just exudes adventure! One of his great qualities is that he values his family time over business, which makes him a natural for family based travel experiences. His writing and communication skills are excellent. The Wayfarers has enjoyed working with Steve and we wish him every success.”
Judy Allpress, The Wayfarers Walking Vacations

“We have been fortunate enough to have been written up in a number of Steve's articles. What sets Steve's writings apart from most of the other articles that have been written about our inn and the Northeast Kingdom, is that Steve lives and experiences what he writes about. He's genuine in his approach and only highlights places that are worthy of his high standards.”
Jim O’Reilly, Innkeeper, Wildflower Inn, Lyndonville, Vermont

“I don’t know if Steve Jermanok owns an armchair, but I know he doesn’t use one to travel. Steve gets out there and experiences the places he describes, bringing readers along through his vivid accounts of new and exciting adventures.”
Heather Stephenson, Publisher, AMC Outdoors and AMC Books, Appalachian Mountain Club

“Jermanok is one of the most experienced travel writers I know. He gets it right.”
Tom Brosnahan, travel writer and owner of turkeytravelplanner.com

“Stephen is a pleasure to work with. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the places and activities he writes about is infectious.”
Kermit Hummel, Editorial Director, Countryman Press, a division of W.W. Norton & Company

“I have known Steve for many years and whenever my family is off on another adventure (we take several per year), I ask Steve for his advice. He is generous and thorough with his ideas and since, I've been reading about his own family adventures in The Boston Globe for more than a decade, I am inspired and take his passionate and professional opinion seriously.”
Lauren Hefferon, Owner, Cyclismo Classico

“I've worked professionally with Steve as a colleague since the late 1990s -- as a co-author of Lonely Planet New England, at Countryman Press, and as freelance writer for Away.com. His integrity, passion for travel, and providing readers/users with first rate information and decision-assistance is practically unmatched in this day and age.”
Kim Grant, Travel Writer & Acquisitions Editor at Sutro Media
