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.

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.
 


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.
