This Wild Soul - Alice
Lives in London, UK
I'm Alice, a travel lover with a fondness for seeking out unique, once in a lifetime, once in a destination experiences, that create plenty of stories! I've explored 27 countries to date and my favourite destinations so far have have been Flores in Indonesia, Varanasi in India and Nyungwe in Rwanda -because they were all a little off the beaten path and totally magical...!! I'm an experienced solo traveller. I love trying new things, connecting with locals, hiking through nature & seeing different cultures unique and quirky traditions! Suffice to say... you're in safe hands with these guides. I adore researching and planning trips and take great care to create detailed guides, that wherever possible, help to empower locals I've personally worked with (and highly recommend)!! I also work as a freelance Travel Coordinator for the adventure travel company WeRoad ( ) leading small group tours to worldwide destinations several times a year (the next one is to Iceland over NY, so DM me on instagram if you want to come!). If small group travel is your jam, you're welcome to use my discount code: INCOORLEAKEALI for £200 off any of their tours. If not, read on... When I'm not travelling, or planning my next trip... I spend my days as a rowing coach, freelance artist/graphic designer, and writer :) in my spare time I often get busy making headdresses for Burning Man Festival or trying to learn how to dance properly with fire poi. I’ve been to Burning Man several times & highly recommend sticking it on your bucket list! A world of creative magic, it’s one of my favourite places I've ever been and I cannot recommend it enough. In the meantime, if you want more from your travels, search up my destination guides with confidence, purchase a custom itinerary or hop on a destination consultation with me, and I will thoroughly prep you for the best time ever!!

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.

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. Most recently in the past few years I've visited France, Italy, UK, Bali, Jordan, Mexico, Namibia, South Africa, Greenland, Iceland, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, and Cuba. I'm continuously on the road traveling myself, and speaking and meeting with hotel and tour partners worldwide to stay up to date on their destinations. 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
