So, what is small group travel?

Our plans that create bespoke itineraries for 10 people. This is the ideal number for travel as it is often the smallest group number for the best access. Our groups of 10 can stay in smaller boutique accommodations yet still have private access to some of the world’s most amazing destinations! What we do:

  • Create a unique itinerary based on your ideas.
  • Pre-trip communication to get your group ready.
  • All of the planning for coordinating your group once your feet hit the ground.
  • Accommodations, ground transport, activities, and experiences.
  • Immersive cultural experiences with food, train travel, music, and art.

So, gather up your nine besties! We’re ready when you are! Whether you are a church group looking to see the Vatican or a book club wanting to trace a character’s journey in Paris, or even a group of musicians looking play at a distillery in the highlands of Scotland, we are here to take care of your dreamy travel plans!

Here’s what our clients have to say…

There is no other person I would go to for assistance in world wide travel! I went to Alex with only “I want to go to Europe”….When we met, she had an entire folder already made of places to go, see–she even went as far as to take into consideration medical supplies, etc. for my son. I was amazed. Absolutely top rate. Her posts are a highlight of my day. They allow me to forget my stress, and see the world through someone else’s eyes.

Game changer! My husband and I consulted with Alex while planning our 10- day trip to Italy.  She really took the time to understand who we are as travelers and what type of trip we wanted.  She helped us find the perfect balance of relaxing and adventurous within our budget.  Thanks to her extensive knowledge and recommendations, we had a phenomenal trip that we will never forget! 


Alex helped us find the cheapest way to go to Alaska. Finding us points of contact for fishing, making everything easier for us, that made planning the trip stress-free. We had so much fun from beginning to end, because of her help. Highly recommending Alex and Terri to help you with your travel planning needs. Five stars!

Alex’s blog really transports me to places I haven’t even thought of going and makes me realize I didn’t even know I was missing out!  I work with her to plan trips for my groups that we will all look forward to, enjoy and learn so much from.
