Custom-made trips


What makes a trip special?

As a journalist living and working 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 – it’s different for every destination. Next, it’s important to have a smart itinerary: select hotels, restaurants, things to see and do in each place, all chosen according to your  interests and budget. On top of that comes 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 travelers sensitive to details – those who want the best and nothing less – will have a unique experience, not a standard trip offered everywhere. That is what makes a trip special.

What I offer

  • one-of-a-kind itineraries
  • best hotels, restaurants and sightseeings in your destination(s)
  • what to see, what to do, what to buy
  • a network of reliable local service providers (drivers, guides, baby-sitters)
