Bespoke Luxury Travel Services
If you want to step off the plane and forget every care in the world, this is the plan for you. I will take care of every detail of your trip. Here’s how the process works:
First, I’ll have a conversation via email where you’ll answer questions about you and your travel companions because this trip is all about you; and I want you to have an unforgettable and seamless experience. I’ll ask about things like your budget, your overall desires for your trip, your general interests like hiking or museums, how ambitious you are for packing in the sights or simply relaxing in a gorgeous setting.
Once I feel I have a good idea of what you’re looking for, I’ll send you my proposed general itinerary to make sure that we are all on the same page. I hope you will say, “she nailed it!” But if we need to, we will talk about things further or make a few changes until we get it just right. Once this is completed, you’ll have all the bones of the trip.
Then, once we all agree and you’ve paid your deposit, I get into the fine details that really make the trip. I’ll arrange all of your flights, transfers, starting with airport pickup and everything along the way. I’ll begin booking exactly the kind of accommodations you’ve always dreamed of, whether that’s a charming farmhouse, a luxury villa, 5-star resort, chic apartment or a tiny, tucked away bed and breakfast. Then I get into my personal favorite part—eating and drinking! Whatever region(s) you visit, one of the greatest delights of travel is the food and beverage. Based on the preferences I previously discussed I will recommend the most notable foods and wines of the regions (and/or book for you) restaurants, cafes, wineries (including tours of the winery), wine bars, and even specialty food producers (often including tours of the facilities) and cooking classes (this can, of course, include fully non-alcoholic options and/or craft breweries, distilleries and notable cocktail bars.). Then I will book any other additional activities you choose: shopping, sailing, hiking, basking on the beach, you name it! At the luxury rate, I send only accommodations with availability for your dates of travel, so it’s important that you’ve already booked your flight dates.
Before you leave for your trip, I will provide you with a handy checklist of important things to keep in mind along with pertinent general travel information and destination information: practical items like insurance, local customs, some helpful phrases, and maps. I’ll also send you a full written itinerary that includes absolutely everything—all the details of your trip for each and every day. It will include dates and times of hotels, all your transfers, any activities I’ve booked for you, dinner reservations and maps to help you get everywhere you want to go. I’ll set up a Skype or other video call to go over all this information with you before you leave. And while you’re on your trip you will have access to 24/7 support to help you with anything you might need or want.
