This is not your packaged vacation.
Whatever your passion or interest, I can develop a custom trip you will consider one of your best vacations ever.
Food, wine, craft beers. Are you passionate about wine of a certain region? Or want to try more of wines and foods of certain countries. Or are craft beers more your thing? I can design trips around your specific interests in food, wine, craft beer or distilleries. If you’d like to delve deeper into the food traditions of your favorite countries, I can arrange cooking classes worldwide.
If you want to spend time touring and tasting the best Rioja wineries in Spain – or some excellent Champagne houses and don’t want to drive – I know where to send you. My in-depth knowledge of the wines and touring options on the Right and Left bank of the Garonne will enhance your trip to the Bordeaux region. If you want access to small grower wineries in Tuscany you might never find on your own, I am now working with a sommelier who can show you the hidden wineries of Montalcino, Montepulciano and beyond.
Or, closer to home, I can arrange special trips or long weekends to wine regions around Santa Barbara, Napa, Sonoma, the Finger Lakes or the North Fork of Long Island.
My relationships with owners of renowned cooking schools around the world offer you exclusive offers and access. For example, the 7 day program at Mexican Home Cooking School, outside of Tlaxcala, Mexico will have you cooking Puebla-style mole and other Mexican specialities that will amaze your friends and family.
Craft beer tourism is emerging in the US or why not visit Belgium? On a recent trip, I explored the famous beer bars of the city and discovered some great local spots. My relationship with the Brussels and Wallonia Tourism Board gives you insider access to this relaxed, wonderful country.
River cruises. A certified specialist with 7 river cruise lines, I can match you or your group to the best cruise for your needs. Wine or beer focused cruises, kid friendly sailings, art or history intensives are just a few of the options. For solo travelers, river cruises offer the benefit of specially priced single cabins or waived single supplement sailings. Or, you can charter a canal boat for a more customized experience.
Adventure. Whether your passion is diving, snorkeling, kayaking, or bicycling in the world’s renowned destinations for these pursuits, I can find the best outfitter and most luxurious accommodations the location has to offer.
City vacations. If you want to immerse in Paris, New York, Mexico City, Bangkok, or London – or a combination of cities, I can develop a custom trip that highlights the best each city has to offer. Special entry to the world’s greatest art collections; major performances and cultural events; specialized neighborhood guides to introduce you to the real city. Home visits, cooking classes, food or antique market visits, or learn a new language. Private drivers and guides who will show you the cultural landmarks and hidden gems in their cities. It can all be arranged for you.
As a long time NYC resident and travel community member, I have insider’s knowledge and great connections in NYC. The city’s best tour guides, hoteliers and restauranteurs are my friends. Whether you want a romantic weekend; a fun trip with friends; a theater, food, art, or sport-filled trip; family reunion; or a bachelor, bachelorette celebration, NYC can be customized just for you!
Ancient ruins. Are you interested in the Maya, the Incas or the Khmer? Do the underground burial sights and medieval cities of Malta intrigue you? Having traveled extensively to ruins worldwide, I can develop itineraries that go beyond the usual tourist sights – and tell you the best places to stay and eat in some of these distant locations.
Yes, I book packages, but will always seek extras to make your trip more memorable. Through my preferred suppliers, I will always try to offer exclusive options and better accommodations, not available through online travel agencies.
You can count on me to develop a vacation you will remember for the rest of your life.
