Randy Case
President
Randy Case, began as a tour manager in 1976 while attending college at UCLA. For 6 years, Randy escorted worldwide tours & cruises for such fine first class companies as Conner Tours, Club Universe, Maupintour, Tauck Tours, & Olsen Travelworld. With all that experience, Randy had some definite ideas on how to improve and design many great new vacation itineraries. So in 1982, he decided to venture out on his own and formed AFC Tours.


April Silva
Office Manager/Reservation Assistant
Hi there! Originally born in Chicago I moved to California at a very young age and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I married my amazing husband in 2006 and shortly after we got a Labrador puppy, Molly. Our family was made complete in 2011 when our son was born.  We love to travel and visit new and exciting places together. We have enjoyed trips to Oregon, Idaho, Belize, California coast, Florida, Memphis and more. We are always looking forward to the next adventure!

I have been with AFC Vacations since October 2007 and I love working here. The staff is amazing! I love spending everyday helping our wonderful clients plan their next vacation and hearing all about all of their past adventures. Hope to hear from you soon!


Joe Sierchio
Reservations Department Manager
I have worked with AFC Tours since 1997. I am originally from Philadelphia, where I worked at the Philadelphia Stock Exchange for 8 years. After vacationing in San Diego in 1990 I decided that this was the place for me, and moved here just a year later. I worked at RoadRunner Sports while finishing my education at San Diego State University. During my final semester I was approached by AFC Tours for employment. I have worked here for quite a while, and have had the pleasure of working the phones and escorting many tours and cruises. I thoroughly enjoy speaking with, and meeting, our valued travelers. I look forward to many more years of serving and meeting you.


Marion Levi
Accounts Payable
Originally from South Africa, my family and I immigrated to the United States in 1977 and moved to San Diego in 1987. I have been working for AFC Tours since 2000 as the Accounting Supervisor and my favorite pastime is certainly traveling. Fortunately, I have traveled the world and look forward to more adventures in the future. As your accounting contact, I am here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Talk to you soon!


Delta Guyette
Operations Manager
Hi! My name is Delta and I was born and raised in New Hampshire. I have lived in San Diego for nearly 2 decades with my husband. I started at AFC Tours in June of 2005 and my background was primarily corporate events and community development which included travel. Here at AFC I am responsible for all the operational aspects of our land tours. This includes motorcoaches, hotels, restaurants, attractions and all other details within our tour itineraries.


Dave Robertson
Air Manager
A genuine California native, I was born and raised right here in sunny San Diego! A graduate of U.C. Berkeley, I have been in the travel industry since 1996. For 7 years I managed Council Travel, the World's Largest Student Travel Agency. After briefly working in the entertainment travel industry, I found AFC Tours in February of 2003, and have been here ever since.

As you all know, the Airline industry has changed immensely over the last few years. I look forward to helping you with your requests and answering all your questions or concerns regarding your tour and flights. Put my knowledge and experience to work for you!


Sarah Shelly
Documents & Home Shuttle
Hi Everyone! My name is Sarah. I was born and raised in San Diego where I  lived all my life until I married my husband in 2015. Shortly after, we relocated to South Korea for a couple years with a brief stay in Louisiana before returning back to San Diego. With two little boys, our favorite things to do are anything that lands us outdoors as well as travel around the world. I first started working for AFC Vacations in 2011 as the receptionist before moving into the Documents and Transfers Department as well as Groups Sales shortly after, up until I relocated to South Korea in 2015. Upon my return back to San Diego, I was fortunate to be asked to return to AFC Vacations doing exactly what I did previously. I absolutely love the AFC staff as they’ve grown to become family and I look forward to generating all of your travel documents to help make your vacation experience one of the best!


Victoria DeVinny
Administrative Assistant
Hello, my name is Victoria. Chances are, when you call AFC, mine is the first voice you hear. I was born in Hong Kong, and grew up in Sacramento. I met my husband at San Diego State University. We've lived in LA, Orange County and St. Paul, Minnesota. When we had the opportunity to move back to San Diego in 1996, we jumped at it, and have lived in America's Finest City ever since. Together we have 2 wonderful daughters, who are both attending SDSU.
I've always had a passion for travel, and I am very fortunate to work in the travel industry with such a great team and wonderful clients. I look forward to the chance to answer your questions and help you get the most from your AFC Vacation.


Sue Porter
Administrative Assistant
Hi There, my name is Susan Porter and I was born in Tucson, AZ, but my family moved to California when I was very little. I consider myself a Californian native. I met my husband of 36 years in Elgin IL, a suburb of Chicago where we lived for 10 years. After a very hard winter I convinced him to move back to California.  My husband and myself loved road trips and camping, we went to all of the California Missions over a three year period, and have been to 22 states in our travels. I still love to camp and can’t wait to see all the other beautiful places that we have in our wonderful county. I started with AFC a little over a year ago as Administrative Assistant. I look forward to assisting our clients here at AFC Vacations with any and all their questions, concerns or needs.

Casey Zehnder
Operations
Hello happy AFC travelers!
My name is Casey, I grew up in Connecticut half of my life (as a child) and drove cross country with some friends a few decades ago. After attending college in San Diego and raising three children, I can finally call San Diego my home away from home.
When I’m not coordinating your travel attractions, making hotel reservations, or booking your charter buses,  I’m sure to be hiking, camping, taking road trips, or hanging out with our crazy kids and fun friends.
