Europe, Wine Tours, Groups, & Honeymoon Specialist

Based on a lifelong passion for travel, I began offering my expertise to clients 7 years ago. My business is based in the New Orleans region, but I am currently living and working remotely from Geneva, Switzerland. I love living in this beautiful destination, and being centrally-located where I can further develop my knowledge of European destinations.

My second passion is wine! I have recently earned the WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Level 3 in Wines certification, so I can better create and lead "Adventures by the Glass" tours to exciting wine, beer, spirits, and culinary destinations.

I continue to work with my U.S. clients, designing vacations to Hawaii, the Caribbean, Europe, and occasionally Africa, Asia, and Australia. I work with couples who are planning a destination wedding or honeymoon; and I also assist with families and groups for other exciting trips such as sailboat charters in Croatia, girls getaways to Morocco, Napa Valley independent wine tours for multi-generational families, and G Adventures small group guided safaris in South Africa.

My clients appreciate my meticulous attention to detail, their confidence in my recommendations, the excellent value they receive, and the ease at which they can trust me to put their interests and needs first.

I look forward to working with you, too!

"We cannot thank you enough for helping us plan our dream honeymoon. We are so happy to have had you as our travel agent. We have had terrible experiences in the past and were considering just planning the trip on our own. Not only did you help us book these wonderful excursions & accommodations but you constantly checked up with us throughout planning and the trip. There is no hiding that you really care about your clients. We could have not asked for anyone better to work with & cannot imagine working with anyone else in the future." - David & Courtney F.

"We, without a doubt, will be booking trips with you again in the future and will refer our friends and family." - Jessica & Jason M.

"You’re amazing! I love working with you." - Erik E.

Very knowledgeable

Reviewed By Quelle - New Orleans, Louisiana | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
I first worked with Ashley in 2015 for my wedding. I had a destination wedding and the hotel recommended her since she lived in my state and knew about the property. She handled my travel, wedding plans and travel/hotel accommodations for my 15 guest and everything was awesome. I later used her for a trip to Dubai. She was knowledgeable about where to stay and things to do.

This was our first trip booking through Ashley and we will continue to use her for all future trips! She was awesome from the planning process to even helping if we had questions while on our trip. We went to Rome, Paris and London and had the time of our lives. She was extremely helpful with all of our questions (and we had a lot of them)! I would definitely recommend Ashley!

20th Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By Erik - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to Tuscany ~ Italy ~ Europe
We're repeat clients, and once again Ashley got the details right, saved us from making mistakes and helped us figure out what we want. Nothing "salesy" about her or the process. Such a warm, pleasant personality, too. No self-booking travel website can replicate the confidence you get from working with a professional. Booking the details actually felt like part of the vacation. Seriously, when was the last time you could do the dreaming and leave the minutiae to someone else? Will keep using Ashley, she's a huge time saver.
