Families typically travel on school breaks which are considered “high season” for many destinations.

 Booking well in advance is important as availability becomes limited and prices rise the closer you get to your desired travel date.  Here are some inspiring destinations by school break to kickstart your brainstorming:

Winter Break – February or March 
Sand or Snow? Loads of options are out there!

Spring Break – March or April 
Take the kids to Europe!  Expose them to new and different cultures, languages, foods, and kid-friendly experiences. 

Summer – June through August 
Alaska – An ultimate, must-do family bucket list destination in the US.

December Holidays 
Galapagos Islands – A holiday season they’ll ALWAYS remember.

Any time of Year 
Multi-generational travel creates memories that last a lifetime. The bonding time with children and their grandparents in an incredible destination is priceless – but how do you find  a trip that will appeal to everyone?  Enter Hidden Gem Travel Consulting – your secret weapon!


Couples have so many options for travel, it can feel overwhelming.

We help you narrow your options through our exclusive consultation process. 
Hidden Gem Tip:  Travel when school is in session and not during peak season to get the best availability, rates, and upgrades! 

European River Cruise

River cruising is very popular right now, and it’s not all about being on the boat. The destination is the focus of the experience, but you’re cruising in ease and luxury as you go from place to place. We can help you pick the perfect river cruise. And why not rope in another couple or two to join you?

Relax + Reconnect

Alone time allows you and your significant other to relax and reconnect, be it a short getaway or longer. We help you find the adult-focused resorts in gorgeous destinations that are right for you.

African Safari

How about a safari in Tanzania and Kenya to see the “Big 5” (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and Cape buffalo) or a mountain gorilla trek in Rwanda? Did you know that you can add on a wine tour on the longest wine trail in the world in South Africa? This shared bucket list experience will forever change your relationship and outlook on our incredible world.

Retired? Consider a world cruise!

There’s no better way to see the world in a condensed timeframe with minimum hassle - no schlepping luggage or dealing with many hotels and airports.  If this idea is new to you, rest assured there are many options and itineraries to consider.  We are here to help you find your best match. 


It’s so much fun to experience a destination with your friends and social groups where you share a passion!

Start a group text to begin the brainstorming process and let Hidden Gem Travel Consulting take the reins on the planning and organizing.

Wines + Spirits + Beers

Tell us about your passion for wines, spirits and/or beers, and we can design an incredible itinerary for you and your friends in an iconic or lesser-known destination.


The world of travel is an oyster for foodies! We have access to unforgettable culinary experiences like cooking classes, shopping local markets with a chef, preparing and sharing a meal with local families – whatever inspires your passion.

Celebrations + Surprise Travel

Giving a gift of an experience is very popular! Celebration trips are designed around the type of event – a milestone birthday or anniversary, graduation, honeymoon or babymoon, retirement, and the like. The latest trend is “surprise travel” where travelers don’t know their destination until right before they depart. Something to consider if the honoree absolutely loves surprises.

Music Lovers

From experiencing jazz festivals to local musicians to European symphony orchestras, there are many cool travel experiences for music lovers. Did you know that there are cruises that cater to people with a passion for music?


The options for wellness-related trips are growing around the world! We curate the best options for your group whether it’s focused on yoga, nutrition, outdoor adventure or another activity you all love.
