You have a dream, to explore the world. We can help you do it responsibly.
Planning an adventure is exciting!
It’s something to look forward to. It keeps your spirits high as you enjoy the anticipation of exploring a new destination.
You’ve Googled and bookmarked, pinned and documented everything from photos to websites, to restaurant reviews. You’ve done lots of research, but the planning is overwhelming and time consuming. You love looking at beautiful pictures and that means your list of places to see and things to do keeps getting longer. How will you ever fit it all in?
You are ready to invest your money in a vacation you’ll love, but you’re unsure which companies are legitimate and where your money is actually going.
Buying local and reducing waste is important in your daily life, but you’re not sure how to honour those values when you travel.
We find destinations and experiences that make your heart sing.
The endless amount of information online is overwhelming. You don’t need more unvetted information. What you really need is quality information, tailored to you. All of the options don’t apply to you, but how do you figure out which ones are the best fit for you and your values?
The secret is a well-travelled, knowledgeable and experienced travel planner, with inside connections. Anyone can Google things to do in a destination, but to find truly authentic experiences, not just the most popular options, you need insider information.
When you hire us to plan your travels, we get to know you as a person, and as a traveller. Our hands-on experience in over 45 countries, combined with our network of strong industry connections ensures you have authentic adventures, every time you travel.
Working with us, you can rest assured not only will you have an amazing adventure, your investment will do double duty as you’ll also have a positive impact on the world, just by travelling.
From planning, through to your safe return home, we’ll make sure you Love the Way You Travel, and that your sustainable values aren’t left behind.

Meet Louise Fraser
Louise was raised on poutine and cinnamon buns as she travelled back and forth between Canada and Sweden visiting family. Ski hills in Norway, France and Italy were covered in her tracks over many March breaks and the archipelago of Stockholm hosted her cool dips in the sea, saunas and plenty of midsummer dances. Not knowing what to sink her teeth into once she hit University, Louise set off to travel the faraway lands of China and then Colombia. Teaching English gave her the opportunity to immerse herself in the culture, get to know the local people and experience a totally different way of life. The need to expand her mind and learn important lessons through seeing and doing gave her a unique kind of education that has stayed with her through the years.
Louise is passionate about wellness and the environment and is known as a bit of an “earth mama” especially by her three adventurous children. She’s into authentic cuisine, farmers markets, and practicing foreign languages. Most of all, she loves discovering new places and learning about other cultures especially when surrounded by her boys.
