Traveling in a way that is kind to the environment, respectful of local culture, & supportive of the local economy. My trip-planning services are always through a sustainable lens, and automatically include a carbon removal contribution. ❌ What I'm not a great fit for: Travelers focused on bars/clubbing or high-end shopping. ➡️ Follow me on TikTok & Pinterest @hilaryinparis for Paris & France recommendations, tips, personal stories, and more. 🌍 PS: I'm on Thatch because I genuinely love sharing France with folks.

Josefina Ginevra
Lives in Geneva, Suiza
Hello, I'm Josefina, an Argentinian now living in Geneva, Switzerland (fun fact: my last name is Ginevra, which is the translation to Geneva in Italian). My journey from a career in psychology to becoming a travel planner has been quite an adventure, just like the trips I craft. When I relocated to Geneva with my husband, I faced the challenge of finding a job in a new country with a different language. This shift in my life opened the door to another passion of mine: travel. Throughout my time in Europe, I've explored well-known destinations and uncovered hidden gems, many of which are right here in this beautiful country I now call home. Travel has always held a special place in my heart. Even as a teenager, I enjoyed creating travel plans, but I never realized it could become more than just a hobby. It was the feedback from my trips with family and friends that inspired me. They marveled at how well everything was organized, from hotel choices to dining experiences and the unique places we visited. Their encouragement led me to consider a career in travel planning, but I wasn't sure how to make it happen until I discovered this platform. Thanks to Thatch, I'm now pursuing my dreams by crafting comprehensive guides and itineraries and offering my services as a travel planner. I invite you to explore my guides and see how I work. If you ever desire a personalized Eurotrip plan, don't hesitate to reach out. I'll plan your journey as if it were my own, taking into account your preferences, budget, and needs. Let's transform your travel dreams into reality!

Emilie La Gavi
Lives in Montreux, Switzerland
This is not your relax and chill retreat vacation recommendations. I am more of a live-my-life-to-its-fullest, watch-the-sunrise, walk-everywhere, everything-for-the-experience, acting-like-I-own-a-food-blog, enjoy-drinks-on-a-rooftop, art-critic type of traveler. Ironically, I love equally to travel solo or with a bunch of friends/family, eat old sandwiches on a backpacking trip or lavish on gastronomic food, a spontaneous adventure where we decide at 9pm where we are sleeping later or a day-by-day planned trip. No matter where, how, with whom, and for how long, I choose to prioritize the experience and memories. And with a friendly budget. Sometimes, budget friendly means only booking a room on Airbnb in order to enjoy a nice brunch. Or, going to the grocery store to balance out an expensive scenic train ride. At 23 years old, I am nowhere to be a travel expert. But, I lived in 4 different countries already, across two continents, and have a google maps saturated with saved pins. My obsession in finding the best gems, hidden spots, good food, fun cocktails, and unique experiences, has brought me here. You will find a good mix of shorts spontaneous weekends trips up to longer adventures; road-trip itineraries to nice hotels; Instagram- or TikTok-inspired worthy spots to unknown local gems; photogenic sceneries to more authentic views and smells. And occasionally, great spots to relax on your adventure. Because even if i enjoy walking 20'000 steps a day, I also enjoy a good spa/beach day as well!

Alecia Caine - Sweet Life Italy
Lives in Guardia Sanframondi, Province of Benevento, Italy
I discovered my passion for Italy as a young woman traveling thru the country where my grandmother grew up. I fell in love with the language, the food, the people and all things Italian. I guess you could say Italy is my soul mate. For my 50th birthday, after having raised two sons as a single mother, I bought myself an apartment in a medieval village in Southern Italy. My life changed and I created Sweet Life Italy, a boutique niche tour company to share my love of the Italian way of life, especially in the South, with its amazing scenery, down to earth food and the friendliest people on earth. I created Sweet Life Italy to inspire women to savor pleasure and rediscover their passions, awaken their senses and follow their dreams. I offer you the experience of discovering Italy through your senses, indulging in the tastes and textures that surround you.. Take time for time and attune to the local rhythm and energy of Italy while savoring the food, wines, music, art and beauty of Italy. Lounge in cafes, learn to make pasta by hand with the grandmothers, picnic amongst the grape vines on delicacies grown near the local villages. I am fortunate to enjoy very close relationships with the locals so I can offer travelers very unique experiences up close and personal, not like a tourist. I specialize in organizing your dream trip to Italy in the following locations: Naples, Rome, Florence, Venice, Tuscany, Campania, Gaeta, Amalfi Coast, Ischia and Guardia Sanframondi including transportation, accommodations, guided tours, cooking classes with the nonnas, wine tasting, foodie, history, art, nature tours.

Adventure with Anna
Lives in Rochester, NY, USA
Hi! I am Anna a Rochester, NY based travel planner. I am here to help you with every step of your next vacation. I can help you plan a luxury vacation without that luxury price tag! I work full time as a Events Coordinator and am incredibly passionate about planning and travel. I want to see as many countries and cities as I can and hope to help you get away too. My passion for travel began in 2019 when I lived abroad in Florence, Italy for a year. Because of this experience, I have since been to 19 countries and visited many cities in them! My favorite will always be Florence, but Copenhagen, Denmark and Ljubljana, Slovenia are close seconds! I specialize in travels to Italy, UK, France and love to plan trips to smaller, less traveled countries and cities! Outside of travel and my day job I love to read (anything fantasy) and I spend time cooking and working out with my boyfriend. I am also an avid plant enthusiast and have over 80 plants in my 2 bedroom apartment (much to the dismay of my boyfriend). In the past 3 years I have booked several vacations for clients. The two I consider my greatest achievements were both international adventures. One was for 40 days, 4 people across 9 countries. This trip cost each person less than $6,000 each and they got to experience so many different foods, stays, activities and places! The second was a 14 day, 11 person trip across 2 countries and 4 cities. This trip was more luxurious, however, the family that worked with me saved $30,000 compared to working with a different travel agent. Both trips highlight my ability to plan different kinds of vacations, while keeping your budget in mind. Make sure to click "Hire Me" to browse the different services I offer: 🗺️ Custom Itineraries: Tailor-made travel itineraries built for you. 📌 Curated Recommendations: Discover hidden gems and local favorites. 📞 1:1 Consultation Calls: Expert advice just a call away.

Plan For Me Dani
Lives in Philadelphia, PA, USA
My name is Danielle and I have been planning trips for the past 10 years. One thing special and unique about my guides is that I am not producing guides that I didn't currently use myself. The places in my guides are places I have been, the itineraries are itineraries that I have personally followed. Everything is real and I have vetted myself. My travel planning story started with a honeymoon to Italy and since then it has grown each and every year. I love all kinds of travel! It's hard to fine a niche because I fit into so many categories. I love nature, hiking, and being outdoors. I love beaches and sunsets and sipping wine and cocktails in pretty places. I love learning about people and cultures and history. I love street art and busy cities and I also love small towns and quieter places. I will sleep in a hostel and I enjoy a beautiful hotel. I love South and Central America and I am obsessed with Europe. I've been to Asia twice and hope to get back in the next few years. I love to eat and one thing you'll always get from me are true and great reviews of places that I've personally eaten! I have just returned from Albania and I am working on guides from that trip! My full time job is as a School Leader of Social and Emotional Learning in Philadelphia. All my travel is done on school breaks and in the summer. I have still managed to visit over 36 countries and countless cities along the way. Being a teacher my whole life is about planning and I do believe I am exceptional at it. I work VERY hard to plan incredible trips and now you can hopefully benefit from that as well!

Lives in Chantilly, VA, USA
🌏 Solo travel, Culture enthusiast, English Teaching, Volunteer 🏕 Camping, Hiking, Roadtrips 🦋 Mindful travel, Budget-friendly Hello! My name is Izzy, I am DC based, and I have traveled to 14 countries + five continents in the last five years. My pursuit is to volunteer abroad, as it allows me to expand my horizons, gaining a profound insight into diverse cultures and their impact on our global community. Additionally, I find great pleasure in exploring various states within the US for my own personal enjoyment. (: Going... is meant to be filled in with the blanks of all of your travel desires! Where I am going and how I am doing it are frequent questions inquired of me from myself... but also by my family, friends, and co-workers.  I have a profound passion for mindful travel, where I wholeheartedly immerse myself in the local culture, while carefully considering country-specific requirements, managing my budget thoughtfully, and prioritizing the exploration of history, interactions with the local people, and appreciation of the natural beauty of the destination. My approach involves actively engaging with the people of my chosen location, as I am dedicated to savoring the essence of the country, city, and its inhabitants before bidding adieu. I gauge the success of my trips by whether I've enjoyed my accommodations, discovered amazing food (and coffee, of course!), engaged in meaningful interactions with locals, acquired new knowledge, and experienced a touch of nature's beauty. I decided to make this page to keep an online journal of my travels and to inspire others to make their leaps into their own adventures. The first steps are hard because you do not know what you don't know. I want to help you ask the right questions, prepare yourself emotionally & practically, and foster excitement in what is ahead! I would love to connect with you to help you meet your travel desires and curate the perfect trip!

Meredith Johnson
Lives in Charlotte, NC, USA
Hello! My name is Meredith, but my friends call me Mere. I am a nurse based out of Charlotte, NC and I am extremely lucky to have an international airport only 15 minutes away. About 4 years ago I got the travel itch. This is around the same time that my friends started getting married, having kids, buying homes, and just all around acting like adults. In a time where everyone was intent on settling down I was intent on having a trip booked every 3 months. I have planned solo trips and planned trips for myself and friends. I believe there is a difference in a trip and a vacation, so it’s most important to me for the client to know which they would prefer. When I travel internationally I try to make the most of my time, so most of my guides will be more “trip” based. This includes traveling to different parts of a country and making the most of the time to see and experience new things. I am open to more leisurely vacations guides and would have no problem helping you make a guide that fits your wants. There’s nothing more satisfying than finally getting the trip plan written down, well maybe except getting off the plane at your final destination. I believe in doing the must do things in the places you must do them. If you are going to someplace new, you never k now when you will be back there again, so you might as well do everything possible to elevate your experience.

Shanna Schultz
Lives in Montgomery, MN, USA
Hey! I am Shanna. I am a family travel expert who has been to over 45 countries, and I can't wait to help you plan an enriching, life changing trip with your kids! It is easy to plan a pretty trip with lots of fun stops and neat things to see (heck, AI can even do this for us now). Why should you work with me? The difference is that I have been an ACTUAL travel agent in real life. It is really easy put together all sorts of fun things on an itinerary on paper, but being responsible for creating dozens upon dozens of trips for families that actually happened and worked gives me a whole different level of expertise that most of the folks on this site don't have. It means that I am only going to put reputable suppliers into your itinerary that I KNOW will give you the experience that you are looking for. It means that I am going to look at your itinerary from a bird's eye perspective, looking for friction points or possible problems. It means that I feel a higher level of RESPONSIBILITY for making sure your trip goes as planned. Travel experience is irreplaceable, but it is also SUBJECTIVE. Having been a travel agent means that I combine my extensive travel knowledge WITH hundreds of hours of actual education about destinations. I have spent over 25 years of my life in the travel industry, including time in the hospitality/hotel world, the airline world and also as a travel agent. Having visited over 45 countries, I truly believe that travel changes lives. It has given our kids a deeper perspective on the world. Travel has made them flexible and adaptable. It has opened their hearts to other cultures and shown them that our actions truly have global consequences. THIS is my why. As a family, we seek out immersive, authentic travel experiences that enrich our lives, deepen our understanding and help us create lifelong family memories. Life is so busy. I love helping families make uninterrupted time to be together creating those memories.

Hello! My full-time career is building unique, fully customized luxury travel itineraries to all corners of the world. Having lived abroad in Hungary, Spain, UK, Germany, and Hong Kong and traveled to a total of 70 countries, I ultimately decided to dedicate my life to helping others achieve their travel goals through my boutique luxury travel agency, Foray.

I absolutely love to help advise on topics such as: -- The best routing for an itinerary -- The best luxury hotels in each destination -- Which attractions to skip, which not to miss, and how best to plan ahead and avoid crowds -- Best modes of transportation and how to book -- Help narrow down destinations when you can't choose, and help suggest ones you may not have thought about -- Group travel: how to book and negotiate a room block, air, book activities, etc. -- Cruises: which cruise line and style is right for you? -- Group tour companies: how to choose the right company and experience for you. -- California travel: As a California native, there's nowhere I know better than here! Whether it's a full road trip or Yosemite, Big Sur, the desert, Tahoe, redwoods, or LA, I have loads of insider tips for California travel. -- And much more - if you'd like to know if I can assist on a particular topic, please ask! Depending on what we discuss, I may be able to assist with booking hotels, cruises, or tours for you with additional perks or promotions that are only available when booking through a travel advisor. Please don't hesitate to reach out, I look forward to connecting with you! Cheers, Sarah
