About Us

Meet the Owner of Firstworld Travel

Dennis Hein has owned and operated Firstworld Travel and Cruises since 1996. He started working at the office in 1990 while he still was employed at UCSD as a Microbiologist. Dennis graduated from Gradwohl School of Medical Technology in St. Louis, Missouri in 1973. He worked in Medical Labs in St. Louis until he moved to San Diego in 1990.

Although Dennis enjoyed his work in the medical field his true passion was travel. He attended Travel School in Missouri in 1987 and worked as an independent travel consultant in addition to his work in the Medical Lab. In 1996 he purchased the business from Ruth Schimerling, the original agency owner.

Dennis has had the opportunity to travel extensively while working in the travel industry. He has been on 25+ cruises as well as tours to Mexico, China, Greece, Turkey and much of the European continent.

Dennis and his team are a dynamic group. His favorite quote: "We try harder."

Susan Johnson
Whether planning a romantic getaway with my husband, or a girl’s trip, I book all of my travel through Susan. Her enthusiastic personality and expertise have kept me coming back time and time again. She has helped me mold trips that have had so many memorable moments- that is something that money can’t pay for. Susan has even helped me acquire my lifelong dream of traveling to twelve countries outside of the US, and was just as excited for me as I was when I obtained that goal. Her fun-loving, and contagious attitude will keep you returning! With Susan, the planning process can be just as fun as the vacation. You know you’re in good hand when you can call your travel agent a friend!
