One thing you’ll miss out on by booking independently is the expert advice – and that’s where I come in.

I supply that advice for a one-time fee, leaving you with the freedom to craft your trip as you wish.

I can answer questions such as: Which route is best? Where should I fly into? Which is the best restaurant in the area? Which markets are good and which should I avoid?



What I Do

I am a luxury travel connoisseur. For certain destinations, I can give you the best advice on:

  • when to travel
  • how to get there
  • where to stay
  • what to do
  • where to eat and drink

These recommendations are based on my own experiences and career in the luxury travel industry.


Blogs and websites such as TripAdvisor can be trusted to a point, but it’s rare that any of these commentators also have experience in the operator side of things as I do. Many bloggers also work as unofficial marketers for the products about which they’re writing.

My advice is simply based on several years in the luxury travel industry and my own high standards.


Why Me?

I will appeal to the type of traveller that wants a trusted opinion and insider destination knowledge, but doesn’t want to book an entire trip through an agent.

There are plenty of benefits to booking with a tour operator or agency, but booking independently means you will usually get better deals and the freedom of not having a fixed itinerary from start to finish.


Before you book a trip planning service with me, please feel free to contact me for a chat.

I will be more than happy to go through your requirements, explain what I do, and see if we’re a match for each other before you pay anything.

​This is the perfect service for those who want insider, expert knowledge, but don’t want to book with a travel agency.

My opinions are impartial and based on first-hand experience, and I do not receive commission from any hotel, airline or business.

I’ll give you all the information for a single straight-up fee, but I won’t make you book everything through me: the best rates are found when booking directly.

  1. I am not a booking agency. I am an advice outlet and a trip planner. If you require a travel agency, I can give recommendations about which one you should use.
