Four Custom Journeys for Independent Travelers
From stays in charming boutique hotels to private tastings in craft whiskey distilleries with local experts, Ireland has something for every type of traveler. Let our consultants arrange a private car, driven by a knowledgeable local guide, to whisk you to and from private guided boat excursions, closed castle tours, or to hikes and bike rides along Ireland’s vibrant coasts or through its national parks. We can combine exclusive tours of craft workshops with private visits to Ireland’s farms, villages, cities and universities.
In between restorative stays in chic hotels and resorts, indulge in private wine tastings in New Zealand’s numerous regional award-winning wineries. Learn about Maori culture during exclusive one-on-one visits with Maori elders. Heli-ski and heli-snowboard via chartered helicopter flights that follow breathtaking sea-to-sky routes. Explore specialized local farmers markets. Let our consultants coordinate exclusive access for you to underground caves lit by bioluminescent glow worms. Embark on privately guided hikes through national parks on the South Island or play temperate rounds of world-class golf with resident pros on both islands.
From exhilarating helicopter tours over Victoria Falls to family holidays in vast wilderness reserves to cage diving with great white sharks, nothing beats a safari in Southern Africa. The dry season runs from April to October. Wildlife abounds, whether it’s the big five—lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos—or beyond. Head to Botswana to see meerkats and wild dogs. Photograph African penguins, whales, dolphins, seals, turtles and sharks on a custom African safari for you and your choice of travel companions.
Provence is home to some of France's most charming villages, while the Côte d’Azur, or French Riviera, offers the most spectacular seaside destinations in Europe. Let us build a custom holiday for you that combines the best of both regions. Explore the Luberon region on a private bicycle day tour with an English-speaking local guide. Cycle along the best paths—past vineyards, orchards and sunflowers—making stops along the way to explore medieval villages, castles, wineries and lavender fields. Then head to the coast, where you can relax in any number of exclusive cliffside châteaux and spas, or explore the Côte d’Azur’s beaches and islands by private boat.
