Custom Vacations

Making Your Dream Vacations Come True

Have you ever planned a custom trip? If you have, you either had the time of your life with spreadsheets and charts, or you hit a level of stress that gave you a migraine. If you are in the latter category, you are in the majority! The endless hours upon hours of research, only to find contradicting information everywhere! After planning, or doing your best to plan, a custom trip you have reason enough to

Buy a case of wine

Book a Spa weekend

Consider Divorce

I know, this sounds extreme, but these are all experiences guests have shared with me.

You can stop the madness! You can have the trip you desire and enjoy the process of planning it. There’s a secret to achieving this, and I’m going to share it with you. Hire a travel professional – a real person who creates custom trips on a daily basis, and your migraine will fade away.

You may be asking yourself “what is considered a custom trip?” A custom trip is an itinerary designed just for you. It’s :

  • a trip based on your preferences;
  • the destinations you wish to see when you wish to see them;
  • the tours you wish to experience; and
  • sprinkle it with trains, cars, hotels, and any extra’s you desire.

Based on the guests I am working with, the most popular destinations for custom trips in 2018 include Hawaii, Italy, Iceland, France and Australia. Want to spend a day in Capri and visit the Blue Grotto in Italy? Wish to visit the Colosseum in Rome and not stand in line? Want to sip champagne while enjoying an evening at Moulin Rouge in France? Witness the amazing beauty of the fog rolling off Mt. Haleakala at sunrise in Maui? These are a few of the dream trips I’ve reserved for guests recently.

There are times a travel professional will have to disappoint you. For instance, recently I’ve had to look defeat in the face.  If you wish to drive from island to island in Hawaii, we’ll need to postpone your trip until we have flying cars. Or if you want to see the Eiffel Tower and want to spend your afternoon in Venice doing this? Not physically possible. Travel professionals try as hard as they can to fulfill all your requests when planning a custom itinerary but some things only a miracle worker can do! 

Until I can perform these miracles of transportation and place,  I still delight in turning your dream vacations into reality – and sometimes offering you more options to expand your dreams than you could ever imagine.
