Where We Plan Travel
Regional Specialists. Local Expertise. Deep Connections.
We believe the best travel planners are those who know a place really well. As in speak the language, work there regularly, and have expertise in everything from the local food to history and culture.
For that reason we specialize in a few specific places, namely, California, Hawaii, Mexico, Italy, France, and Spain. The specific areas we are highly knowledgeable include:
Spain: Basque Country, Madrid, Seville, Barcelona
France: Paris, Lyon, Rhone Valley, Languedoc, Côte D’Azur
Italy: Lombardy, Piedmont, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Amalfi Coast
Mexico: Los Cabos, Mexican Wine Country, Tijuana, Mexico City, Oaxaca, Guadalajara
Why these destinations? They all have a deep sense of place, vibrant food culture, strong creative scenes, and unique local makers — the very things we believe that makes a destination magical.
