Custom Trip Planning

Our focus is to create experiences that you can truly enjoy because they were made just for you. You get to be fully present with no hassles or research. Tell us what you're dreaming of and hoping for, and we'll customize your travel itinerary from there, all in collaboration with you!

Group Travel Coordination

We know it can be insanely difficult and complex to coordinate a group trip. That's why we're here! Whether it's a family reunion, a fundraiser, or a corporate retreat...we will assist in the planning, negotiations, and communication for all travelers involved.

HOW IT WORKS

  • CONNECT: We'll chat, and you can tell us all the details of the vacation that you are daydreaming about, and we'll get to doing what we do best . . .
  • DESIGN: We go to work creating the best itinerary to fit your preferred, personalized design. This can include all tours, transfers, and tasty eateries!

  • UNWIND: You can relax knowing your plans are in good hands. You will be going on a tailor-made vacation created just for you. You deserve it!

 

Hi there...I'm Christie.

I know it is difficult to make time for a vacation these days. We're all so busy. And with the complexities of travel options and information overload, it can be so overwhelming to try to plan an amazing trip. 

That's where my team and I come in. We are big nerds who love this stuff. Details, research, spreadsheets, planning, phone calls, and negotiating...we live for it. We love to listen to your needs (and wants!) and develop a plan for you, taking care of every little detail. 

My own passion for travel began as a kid.My family moved around a lot, and I had to adapt to new places quickly. As I got older, I learned more about different cultures. I enjoy being a student of culture and growing my cultural intelligence (CQ). I especially like going to places very different from my home, meeting the people, trying the food. 

My type of dream adventure might not be everyone's. But when I plan for you, I plan with you in mind. What types of things do you love to do? What limitations do you have? What have been your favorite vacation experiences? What has gone wrong that we want steer clear of? I find joy in the creation of a journey that exceeds your expectations and becomes the new "best trip" you've ever taken...every time! 

Let's plan something amazing and unforgettable together! And then, you will get to kick back and relax, knowing that you are in good hands. 

With lots of love,

Christie

Indonesia Trip

Reviewed By Jim - Rancho Cucamonga | Traveled to Indonesia ~ East and Southeast Asia
She was so helpful and engaged with my trip. I will definitely use her again for my trips in the future! I had a number of connecting flights and she planned it and organized it all perfectly. She even got me connected to an airline that flys out of a closer airport to my home. A total win-win for me!

Always one step ahead!

Reviewed By Momo - Galway | Traveled to Santiago ~ Chile ~ South America
Always trying to make every trip the best experience - Christie works hard at making sure to cover all the details and basically takes the pressure off. She does all of the travel booking for my organisation and for a person who is on the road 2 weeks out of every month Christie has become a big part of my life!I've stopped thinking about the details when I travel, knowing Christie has everything under control and all I need to do is turn up! Thanks for the hard work and the extreme attention to detail!

In such good hands for the trip of a lifetime!!

Reviewed By Jenny - Upland, CA | Traveled to Mexico
We have had such great experiences working with Globe Sage and Christie on our travel plans! She’s incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, professional, prompt, and skilled at getting us a great deal that fits within our budget every time. I especially appreciate how she goes the extra mile to take into consideration our family’s unique needs and all the things she has learned about how we like to travel. On our last cruise, we were delighted by the personal touches of a welcome card and sparkling cider waiting for us in our staterooms. I trust and value her expertise and long track record of global travel. Christie is the best!!

Lifesavers!

Reviewed By African Mama Travel - Rancho Cucamonga | Traveled to Argentina ~ South America
I cannot express how wonderful these ladies are! We had a pretty complex family trip to Argentina planned before COVID hit. Once we realized this trip was not going to be possible with COVID, Christie and Docoda came up with a swift plan to tackle all the cancellations, refunds and presented all the options. to me quickly. I would NOT even have known where to start..
We had a detailed itinerary with accommodations and activities suitable for my young daughters (one of whom is autistic) . Christie and Dacoda were mindful of what activities would be autism friendly and made sure the tours/activities would work for your family. In the end they provided a beautiful app with an itinerary and additional logistical details.
We will still make it to Argentina and other destinations and look forward to using Globe Sage Travel.
These ladies are truly a dynamic duo - you can just sit back and enjoy dreaming about your trip!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Christie Costello responded:
Monga, we are so grateful for your kind words, and we look forward to serving your family's travel needs in the future. We can't wait to get you all to Argentina!!! :-)

Memorable Family Trip to Spain

Reviewed By MAC & Brig - Rancho Cucamonga, CA | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
We traveled to Spain with our elderly parents which required a lot of special needs. Christie handled those needs brilliantly. Also, Christie is a seasoned traveler. Many travel agencies can only make arrangements from a logistics perspective. Christie was able to make arrangements from both the experiential as well as logistics points of view. she worked with us to ensure that all needs were met and even thought of a few we did not think of. I highly recommend working with Christie if you are interested in a high-caliber travel arrangement experience.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Christie Costello responded:
Thank you so much, my friends. It was such a pleasure to help you plan your Spain trip with your parents. Can't wait to start planning your next adventure. Blessings!
