Travel Planning Specialties

However you’re yearning to explore Europe, I can help.

Discover the breadth of European travel experiences that I can custom design for YOU:

Custom Itineraries

I work closely with my clients to develop custom-crafted journeys throughout Europe—journeys that combine surprising discovery with a seamless experience. “Surprising” because, with my exclusive network of on-the-ground travel partners, my clients get to experience Europe beyond the beaten path. Think: intimate, expert-led tours, exclusive access to local luminaries like celebrated artists, chefs, and vintners, and a chance to bypass the crowds at even the most iconic cultural landmarks. Even if you’re going to a perennially popular part of Europe—Italy, France, Greece—you’ll experience it in a way that’s deeply tailored to your own passions, not a standardized approach.

And of course, your entire itinerary will unfold seamlessly—that’s the benefit of working with a been there, done that European travel specialist. From which cities to visit in what order, to managing transfers and train tickets, I take the complicated logistics of continental travel and turn it into one single, effortless escape for you. Couple that with hand-picked hotels and villas (I travel to Europe 3-5 times per year to vet luxury properties in person for my clients), and you’re in for a European rendezvous that goes down easier than bellinis at a Venetian cocktail bar. With my extensive personal travel experience and in-destination partnerships, nothing is off limits for your custom European getaway.


Small-Group Tours

There’s a brilliant middle ground between on-your-own exploring and big bus tours that leave authenticity out of the equation. Enter: the small-group escorted tour, led by passionate locals and limited in size so your group can travel nimbly, wherever you go. Let me pair you with a discovery-focused tour experience that perfectly balances ease of exploration with culture-packed excursions.

If you’re traveling with a group of your own—such as an extended family trip—I can even design a custom group tour option for you. Stay in your very own Irish castle or Italian villa together, with a private driver available to whisk your group from one European wonder to the next. And if you’re yearning to travel like the European Travel Whisperer herself, I invite you to join me on one of my own Escorted Journeys. On these personally curated and expertly paced itineraries, you’ll explore the best of Europe with myself and an intimate group of other like-minded travelers; discover upcoming itineraries right here.

European River Cruises

Unpack just once to effortlessly explore the vineyard-draped Rhine Valley, sunflower-studded countryside of Provence, springtime tulips and windmills of Holland, and beyond. There is simply no better way to experience the best of Europe at a pace that won’t leave you breathless than on a refined river cruise—I know this first hand. In fact, I’ve sailed down almost every cruise-able river in Europe, often multiple times, on nearly every different cruise line operating on the continent.

That deep level of personal experience allows me to speak to the large and more subtle differences between river cruise regions, cruise lines, itineraries, and even ship layouts, so that you’re matched with a cruise that feels tailormade to delight you. We can further tailor your journey with a custom add-on land itinerary that extends your time to explore before or after your cruise. So settle in and set sail on a seamless escape—let me design it all.


Luxury Ocean Cruises

Uplevel your next cruising experience with a luxurious small-ship cruise through Europe. Capped at fewer than 1,000 passengers, small-ship cruises represent a refined and intimate way to sail—with far more elbow room on board. Your nimble ship will be able to dock in ports that larger vessels pass up, leading to more authentic discovery and exploration beyond the obvious. Plus, you’ll enjoy spectacular service on board, thanks to a high crew-to-passenger ratio. With gourmet cuisine, premium drinks, entertainment, and daily excursions all included, the only decision you’ll need to make on your vacation is whether to pair red or white with dinner.

If you’re dreaming of exploring waters even farther afield—like the iceberg-laced oceans of Antarctica or the marine life-rich Galapagos Islands—I can help there as well. In addition to European itineraries, I can also plan bucket-list sailings aboard expedition cruises that make far-flung discovery possible (and comfortable). Whatever destination is calling you, get ready for a cruising experience that’s elevated in every way.
