Honeymoons, anniversary trips, family reunions, and girls weekends, we've planned all sorts of custom trips. Here's what past customers have to say about the Salt & Wind Travel custom travel planning services:

We had been wanting to travel to Europe for years but always put it off, worried that the planning process would be too daunting. Thanks to Aida and her team, we were able to have an amazing trip we will never forget without having to worry about doing all the research and work that often comes with traveling. The team helped answer all of our questions and concerns with care and kindness. We are so grateful to have found Salt + Wind!

I selected Salt & Wind to plan my birthday weekend in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico. Aida and team did an amazing job selecting the perfect combination of housing, wineries and restaurants. Everything was spot on and my group of 6 loved every moment. I can’t wait to book another trip with Salt & Wind.
