Custom-made trips


What makes a trip special?

As a journalist living and working in major cities on three continents, I became fluent in five languages and aware of the nuances of different countries and cultures. I now use the knowledge accumulated over 30 years to help people have the best trip of their lives.

A great trip takes planning. It starts with choosing the right season to go – different for every destination. Next comes a smart itinerary, with select hotels, restaurants and things to do in each place, all chosen according to your  interests and budget. On top of that, it’s important to have a reliable network of local contacts, to ensure that your vacation is flawless. 

When I personally design one-of-a-kind itineraries, either to private clients or travel agencies, I make sure that people sensitive to details – those who want the best and nothing less – will have a unique experience. That is what makes a trip special.

What I offer

  • one-of-a-kind itineraries tailored to your interests and budget
  • name of best hotels, restaurants and attractions in your destination(s); you are responsible for making your own reservations.
  • list of what to see, what to do and what to buy in each place
  • names of reliable local service providers (drivers, guides, baby-sitters) you may contact, if needed.

How it works
