Hello, my name is Alicia! Let me introduce myself.

Every day I delight in creating custom itineraries designed around my clients' passions. The favorite part of my job is learning about my client’s desires, interests, and needs, then finding the perfect hotels, transportation, activities, experiences and unique components that elevate a trip beyond normal into something magical.  I curate and plan with painstaking attention to detail and I deliver exceptional, seamless and personalized itineraries where you get precisely what you want and when you want it.

My EUROPEAN DESTINATION specialties include:

  • Benelux
  • Croatia
  • Czech Republic

My EXPERIENCES specialties:

INDEPENDENT EUROPEAN TRAVEL:  I have worked for years as a European Destination Specialist, piecing together components and designing itineraries for clients and providing them with the exact trip they have been dreaming about.  No pre-packaged or cookie-cutter trips with me!

HISTORY: I specialize in crafting trips that dive into a person’s heritage, suggest opportunities to step back in time, recommend accommodations filled with the past and tours where you can lose yourself in a time long ago.

CULINARY DISCOVERIES: Food is memorable, and memories are the best travel souvenirs to bring home.  When people return from a vacation often their favorite stories are about restaurants, meals, snacks, and drinks.  Bratwurst in Germany, wine in California, beignets in New Orleans, ouzo in Greece. All around the world, destinations are famous for their culinary items and learning about a culture through the food and drink is an intimate experience worth seeking out. 

UNIQUE TRANSPORTATION (Rail, Barge, River, Safari): There is something enchanting about traveling the way our ancestors did.  Travel back in time to a glamorous era on the Orient Express. Gently float down the French Canal de Bourgogne in the exquisite Fleur de Lys hotel barge. Head to your River Cruise with a mug of glühwein you procured at the medieval Christmas market.  Encounter the endangered Black Rhino while on your Hemingway Safari. These journeys are for romantics, historians and those looking for a journey to another era. 

DISNEY: And now we come to the outlier.  Strange right?  Europe, Gastronomy, History, Unique Transportation and then there is Disney. It is an unexplained passion which takes me to the parks at least once a year. I have been to Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris dozens of times and I can walk around each place blindfolded. I know the best hotel rooms, the top restaurants, special activities, favorite festivals, when to go and what to see. 

I am devoted to details and look for the unique and the exceptional.  The itineraries I create of my clients are as individual as they are. I am here to get to know you, to discover what will enchant you and create a trip that exceeds all expectation.  

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

These are some of my favorite memories. After reading this, let's talk about building a trip around what YOU love.

  • Listening to the wind howl outside my Georgian hotel room in Bath
  • Ordering a Schweinshaxe and a Dunkel at Andechs Monastery
  • Visiting booths during Epcot's Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World
  • Eating at Colonial Williamsburg's The King's Arms while Thomas Jefferson strolls by
  • Looking for the ghosts of the Two Princes in the White Tower
  • Going on a tapas stroll through the La Latina neighborhood of Madrid
  • People watching & sipping wine from my seat along Siena's Piazza del Campo 
  • Feeling the sway of the train as I drift off to sleep in my luxurious berth
  • Being grateful for this amazing world

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Reviewed By Melanie - Denver, CO | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Alicia put together our Honeymoon to Disney & Universal and we could not be happier. She got to know both of us so she knew just which hotel we would like the best, which restaurants we would like to eat at and even which parks to go to each day. She spent so much time making sure our honeymoon was the best. Thanks Alicia!

An outstanding trip !

Reviewed By Carolyn - Littleton, Co | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
Alicia is the best! She is now "my go to" for most everything. I found her only by chance. I usually do the planning for most of my family and have been doing this for years. This was a trip to Spain over the Christmas holidays and I ran into some unusual problems. She had the answers and stayed in touch the entire time. In particular, the trains in Spain, which present unique challenges. She always responded in a timely manner. Her
complete knowledge of travel in Spain was especially helpful. You can relax
if she is helping you plan a trip. I will most certainly call her in the future.
