Let’s get to know you. Submit your travel inquiry here or send us a note. We’ll review and reach out to schedule a consultation where we’ll get to know you and learn about your travel style, preferences and ideas for your trip. Once we’ve agreed we’re a good match, we’ll be on our way!
Now it’s time to take all of that info and turn it into your perfect trip. We’ll design a detailed itinerary for you to review and provide feedback. You decide how hands on (or off) you want to be here. Depending on length and complexity of the trip, proposals will range from general recommendations to day-by-day details.
Once approved, we will confirm all details of your itinerary, including those perks and personal touches along the way. We will provide you with a PDF and mobile itinerary app that you can download to access all daily information, confirmations and contact info. Any updates or changes to your itinerary will be reflected
in the app.
All that’s left to do is pack! While you’re away, we’ll be monitoring your trip to ensure a seamless experience so you can relax and enjoy.
Our full scale custom trip design sees to every aspect of your trip, from beginning to end. We’re thinking about how to make the most of your time, the best way to do it and at the best pace for you plus we’re arranging flights, hotels, transfers, reservations, activities and walking you through entry requirements.

We specialize in luxury 4* and 5* properties
Great question! We’re not just planning, we’re enhancing.
Not all trips are created equal - we’ve made it our business to know what makes a great trip and we love to be collaborative, so you can be as involved in the process as you like without having to worry about the minutiae.
PLUS we have direct access to our hotel and ground partners to add in special amenities, perks and access that cannot be done elsewhere. Who doesn’t like VIP treatment?!
Lastly, we are your advocates. We are in your corner when it comes to just about everything, we are negotiating on your behalf and you will always be able to reach someone if an issue arises.
We get it, points are valuable and you should absolutely be able to utilize them. While we are not able to book with points, we do suggest using them for airfare and allowing us to book your accommodations so we can get you that upgraded experience.
We want to bring you the best value possible - our quotes will be the same or lower than what you find online and include our preferred amenities. If you do see a lower rate than what we’ve quoted, send it over and we’ll work to match it.
Aside from the straightforwardness of a hotel booking, full disclosure - we earn a commission on hotel bookings, it’s built into the pricing. If you book online, without an advisor, the supplier keeps the commission.
The design fee accounts for our time, relationships, expertise and access before, during and after your trip. It also allows us to be impartial and recommend experiences and accommodations that are the best for you, not that will pay us the most.
Fees vary based on length, number of travelers and complexity of the trip.
We don’t have a minimum and appreciate that budgets can vary greatly depending on the type and length of the trip. That said, we work with clients to create custom luxury experiences (4 & 5 star properties, top guides, private experiences) where we can provide the most value. Before planning, we will have a conversation regarding budget to determine if we're the best fit for you.
