How We Work

We work with discerning clients to create extraordinary travel experiences. Our collaborative vacation planning process starts with a complimentary meeting to determine your travel style. This ascertains we are a good fit for each other. Every client completes a detailed questionnaire outlining their chosen destinations, interests, and expectations for every vacation we help plan.

Each luxury vacation receives a highly detailed daily itinerary outlining travel plans plus local restaurant suggestions, shopping information, and sightseeing tips. Our education, experience, and extensive travel gives you the reassurance we know our specialties well; we handle only specific types of travel and a handful of destinations to better serve our clients. Our industry connections guarantee you exclusive amenities and the best value for your luxury vacation. Top management at every hotel/resort is notified of your stay along with a request for possible upgrades and/or additional perks.

If you are doing a custom luxury vacation, every quote will include detailed descriptions of hotels, activities, etc. Plus pictures to show you how extraordinary your custom vacation will be. From the original quote to your final documents, our entire agency team works closely with you creating your dream “trip of a lifetime.” Concierge services can be added – golf tee times, restaurant reservations, show tickets, sporting event tickets, and the like. Finally, you get the highly detailed daily itinerary described above. And, when you return, we invite you back to tell us about your trip – to hear what you loved and to hear how we can improve on your next EXTRAORDINARY vacation.

Perfect Vacation clients enjoy travel and appreciate an advisor who can offer exceptional experiences, accomodations, and amenities with a bit (or more!) of luxury included. They have come to expect a certain level of service and want a stress free vacation which is unique, well orchestrated, and often with concierge services included. We help plan only 4* (upscale) and 5* (luxury) level vacations where value is more important than price. A typical budget ranges from a low of 12-15K per couple (or, two people sharing a room) to “sky is the limit.”
