The Travel Team

Our advisors are masters of creating epic itineraries, managing logistics and making trip planning fun. We’re travelers, too – we know how to best plan your adventure from take off to landing. After all, true luxury is not how much you pay for the hotel, it’s having US do all the planning, all YOU do is show up. Our vast experience doesn’t come from sitting behind a desk, it’s our boots on the ground. We routinely meet with partners, inspect hotels, vet guides, and immerse ourselves in the destinations we’re planning for you. We’re a tight knit team – when you work with one advisor, you get all our brains, so your perfect trip is the result of our collective expertise. Ready to Go?
