MY APPROACH

No matter where you’re dreaming of, I can help you get there.

The concept of luxury conjures different ideas for different travelers. I define true luxury as having the experience you desire with service that exceeds your expectations.

 

My singular focus for every client and every journey is to design meaningful, memorable, Travel That Delights.

HOW IT WORKS

Our Travel Design Process

Complimentary Discovery Call

Each itinerary begins with a conversation where we'll get to know each other and discuss your interests, travel style, and what you're craving from your trip. I'll answer any questions you may have and share more details about our process, travel design services and rates.

Booking & Confirmation

I’ll make and confirm each booking, providing all of the details in a printed travel folio as well as a secure online portal accessible to you 24/7. Leading up to your departure, you can relax and savor the anticipation, knowing every detail is being taken care of for you. 

A Very Bon Voyage

It's time to enjoy your journey. I'll be in touch along the way to ensure everything goes smoothly. Should any unexpected issues arise I’m always just a phone call or text away to assist you. We'll reconnect after you return to share the highlights of your journey.

Itinerary Design & Proposal

With your preferences and travel style always at the forefront, I'll design your custom itinerary with the properties and experiences that best suit the needs of your party. I'll present options that fit your tastes and budget and we’ll refine the details together, until it’s absolutely perfect.
