Introducing Hidden Gem Travel Consulting – A New Way to Travel

Introducing a new way to travel that elevates your precious vacations from fun to unforgettable! Hidden Gem Travel Consulting is a brand-new enterprise that combines my personal passion and avocation with my professional skills.  We are affiliated with Gifted Travel Network, a Virtuoso member agency. Virtuoso is the leading global network of agencies specializing in luxury and experiential travel.  

Hidden Gem Travel Consulting has a very clear mission and focus:  We help busy families and couples plan unforgettable, tailored vacations allowing them to travel with intention and purpose.  Through an inspirational, fun consultative process, we uncover which experiences will be the most meaningful for each traveler on the trip.  Peace of mind is achieved through full-cycle concierge service, starting with brainstorming and planning, continuing throughout the trip and coming full circle to once everyone is back home relishing their amazing memories and imagining their next adventure.  

You might be wondering why using a travel consultant is the way to go when you can book travel on your own.  The answer may surprise you – we have access to information, amenities, upgrades, and hidden gem experiences that are “ungoogleable” and add incredible value to your experience.  You also have someone on your side. Our support eliminates the overwhelm of choosing among hundreds of options (and crossing your fingers that you’ve made the best choice) and stress when traveling that puts a damper on your experience.  

Do you have a travel bucket list?  If the answer is yes, Hidden Gem Travel Consulting offers a new, exclusive travel planning program where you and your family/travel companions create a personalized travel portfolio.  This process is called Wanderlist and makes your travel dreams a reality – ultimately changing your outlook on life from living day-to-day to living trip-to-trip.  

New clients often find me through word of mouth.  Please feel free to share my contact information with friends or colleagues who would love to vacation in a new way – a tailored, layered experience that speaks to what wows everyone in the family. 

And we’re off – hope you’ll join me on this amazing journey to unforgettable travel experiences!
