First of all, let me say that I am honored that you would consider me to take part in something as personal and important as your vacation. Leisure time is a valuable commodity, and it is my hope that you would find me to be a trusted travel advisor as we create a tailor-made vacation that will give you an authentic travel experience.
If you are wondering how exactly this process works, I wanted to give you a quick rundown. The majority of people are looking for the outcome of an amazing vacation suited to their specific likes and desires, without the burden and stress of all the work and research it takes to create it. I am here to take that burden off of you and make your desires a reality.
I work closely with clients to create their own personally defined luxury travel experience. The outline of that process looks something like the following:
How I Work
— 1 —
Our Preliminary Conversation
I need to know who you are on a personal level so that I can create the experience around YOU. This will start with the Trip Design Form and a complimentary planning consultation call.

This is where my work really starts. Planning vacations is hours and hours of research. Even when I know the destination well, it's still about finding the ideal matches for the experience you want to have and the authentic encounter you’re looking for. Wherever you’re at in the process, I meet you there.

Booking All Trip Components
This includes flights, accommodations, transfers, trains, tours, special activities, and anything else that your trip requires. All of these factors are customized to compliment your style, and I work hard to find the ideal choices based on the criteria you share with me.

Everyone is different with their desire for specific plans vs. exploring on their own. We work together to create a detailed itinerary that is right for you and plan all necessary details beforehand to ensure your trip covers all the tours, activities, and sightseeing you desire.
— 5 —
Review and Finalize
Before your departure, we will review all components of your trip, and I equip you with the necessary documents, information, and downloads so that you are prepared, confident, and have everything you need for a successful trip. I also create itineraries people can access on their smartphones at all times.
