Travel Smart

Internet travel information can be misleading and overwhelming. Your trips are precious memories that shouldn’t be purchased like socks. They should be designed to bring you home with awesome stories and experiences.  Our travel expertise is built into the design of all our trips to maximize budget and time while minimizing headaches. We call this traveling smart.

Travel Together

The world is best savored when shared and remembered with others. From destination weddings to family trips to Disney or Australia, travel brings people together in amazing ways. What memories do you want to share with your kids or your parents? We are particularly passionate about group and multi-generational travel. We do all the organizing, question answering, reminding and wrangling so that everyone in the group can just enjoy.

Travel More

You need more time, especially time away. Everyone does. Trip planning is time-consuming. Working with a professional travel expert gives you more time to spend on the important things instead of reading 300 uninformed internet reviews. How much is your time worth? Travel more and leave the planning to us.

Travel Purposely

We believe that travel enriches lives and should return the favor. A portion of the proceeds from your travel goes toward refugee, orphan care, and adoption worldwide. We believe in helping clients experience the places they love and using that to help other have forever homes.
