Destination Inspiration

Tailormade Adventures are extra special because they are uniquely designed, just for you. Wondering what you can experience on a Tailormade Trip? Here are a few ideas to inspire your unique adventure:

Turn your African Safari into a tailormade adventure with your own private guide. Get up close to wildlife when you help collar and track elephants or go walking with rhinos. Sip champagne and marvel at the wide-open sky on a romantic star-bed sleepout and then witness the power of Victoria Falls, from land, water and helicopter.

Enjoy Europe your way, from traditional Gulet sailing in Bodrum, to a sunrise hot air balloon ride over Love Valley in Cappadocia, Turkey. Take private pasta-making classes in the small villages of Tuscany and enjoy a slow-paced vacation at your Italian villa, perfect for the whole family. Take a private guided hike around a caldera in the Azores or get VIP access to some of the world’s most visited museums, such as the Louvre, the Sistine Chapel and Sagrada Familia.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway to the islands of French Polynesia, off the beaten track destinations in Chile or VIP access to amazing sites around the world, we find the best experiences for you and create the trip of your dreams.
