Tailor-made private journeys, designed start to finish by our experts to reflect your personal tastes and interests.

Are you a Couture Traveler?

Want to walk through the same cobblestone streets of your Sicilian ancestors in Noto?

Dreamt of painting Mont Sainte-Victoire like Cezanne under the tutelage of a Provencal artist?

Always wanted to savor the nuances of jamón Ibérico with a master cortador in the Spanish dehesa?

Our design philosophy is founded on the principles that private travel should be characterized by an authenticity of place, while offering the attentiveness and comfort of a luxury experience – the luxury of time, the luxury of independence, the luxury of something that has been handcrafted just for you, and tailored to your exact liking.
