Ever wondered how you can get private access to the Louvre, like Beyoncé or acquire VIP Paddock Club tickets to Formula One?
As a luxury travel consultant, who has travelled to 77 countries, I am able to fulfil unique requests from clients who want to experience the best in every continent.
I was recently invited to the Ensemble Horizons Travel Conference in Las Vegas where I met with tourist boards, five-star hotels, tour operators, cruise lines, airlines and top industry experts from around the globe. Based on this inside access, here are five luxury travel insights for 2024.
Travel by Sea
Our selection of fully crewed private yachts opens up a world of unforgettable adventures to engulf yourself in remote destinations only accessible by boat. Imagine an all-inclusive charter to explore St Lucia with a helicopter ride before boarding your yacht to discover the Caribbean’s finest private islands. Or a cultural immersion on an intimate river cruise on the Mekong River through Laos, Vietnam and Thailand.
Travel by Rail
Experience timeless glamour aboard the Belmond Orient Express luxury train with grand interiors and flowing Champagne, to tour Europe and her finest cities. Debuting December 2023, get ready for an alpine adventure in a private suite to the ski resorts of Megève, Mont Blanc and Courchevel.
If you’re dreaming of Africa, embark on a journey by rail to discover the expansive beauty of South Africa with wine tasting, wildlife and the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.
Travel by Purpose
Imagine travelling to retrace your ancestors’ footprints. At Dream Aloud Travels, you can choose to volunteer while on vacation or donate to a cause that you are passionate about. You don’t have to choose between saving the world and seeing the world!
