Luxury Custom Unique Experience Advisor for 23 YRS

For the past 23 years, I have had the privilege of planning and guiding clients on trips across six continents and over 80 countries.

My wife and I own a boutique travel agency specializing in unique luxury adventures.

We, along with our dedicated team of travel advisors, have the first-hand experience and industry contacts to create itineraries to meet your unique requests as we deliver you to the world.

I enjoy meeting wonderful guides, restaurateurs, and hoteliers during our travel and those special connections that we can pass on to our clients. I have enjoyed planning private charter and half charter river cruises in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Europe as well as private group Safaris in exclusive use camps for our groups in South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe.

Our clients have experienced private piano and opera concerts in Europe, special events at the D-day beaches in Normandy, gourmet wine and food pairings at Chateaux’s in France, group sundowners in the African bush, and 4x4 adventures in the outback of Australia.

We also do our best to give back during our travel to local communities, schools, and organizations as we take only memories and leave only footprints.

I look forward to learning more and listening to what exciting adventures you have in mind and help to make your travel dreams become a reality.
