How We Plan Your Journey
If you already have detailed information about your ancestry, our Heritage Concierge can use that material to build a customized itinerary. Or you can work with our partners at Heritage Consulting, a private genealogy research group with over 35 years of experience in the field, who can conduct additional research into your family tree to help inform your trip.
Where your journey takes you, how long you want to go and how many people you want to travel with are all up to you. The rest is in the hands of our Heritage Concierge, who will customize every detail of your legacy journey to your specifications and interests, whether you want to see the temple where your great-grandparents were married, learn a few words in the language spoken by your ancestors or meet up with distant cousins in your family's ancestral hometown.
Like all of the tailored itineraries planned by our Luxury Custom Travel team, your heritage journey is all-encompassing, including first-class commercial or chartered transportation, exceptional accommodations, savvy local guides, gratuities, curated dining experiences, transfers and end-to-end service. If you’d like, a photographer can accompany you and your group, capturing every moment of your journey for a keepsake book you’ll treasure forever.
Sample Heritage Tour: Family Trip to Ireland
The grandparents of a large family decided to get everybody together for a heritage trip to Ireland. A visit to their ancestral hometown in the Donegal region was not only an opportunity to learn more about their family, but also a chance to explore the castles in the region and seek out dolphins on a private cruise. Our Heritage Concierge chartered a jet and provided an expedition leader and a photographer to accompany them to ensure each detail was taken care of—and each memory captured.
