The travel whisperer
I have done multiple trips with Lisa, both inside and outside the US, including Miami, Montreal, and Iceland. She has an unfailing knack for finding the most authentic experiences (and the best flight/lodging deals). She has a talent for sniffing out those great but off-the-beaten track neighborhoods, restaurants, and activities. Her genuine love of travel, culture, and adventure means that she wants you to have the trip of your dreams every time, and she will work tirelessly to make sure of it.

Amazing Nicaragua Adventure!
Lisa planned a trip to Nicaragua for me and a small group of friends over the New Year’s holiday. She is incredible at finding experiences that are off the beaten path and not the tourist traps that everyone else goes to. She designed an itinerary that was based on our specific group’s interests, and the entire trip went off without a hitch. I highly recommend Lisa if you are looking for someone who can provide professional travel planning and has the insight of a local!

Authentic and Mesmerizing Cuba Experience
Lisa planned our trip to Cuba and spared no detail while doing it. She did a ton of planning before even meeting with us to lay out our options. She outlined the pro's and con's of each proposed step. We felt she knew exactly what she was doing (especially knowing that she had traveled there several times). She was great at telling us what to expect when we arrived. During our trip there were no surprises because of all the information we were given prior to our trip. After Cuba, I used Lisa to plan a trip to the Antarctic and she didn't disappoint at the bottom of the earth either!

Awfully FANTASTIC!!!
In a few words it was very easy to work with Lisa. She’s very passionate and knowledgeable about traveling in general and it shows as she puts together a funtastic itinerary for you. She actually made a 3 big city itinerary for me namely Chicago, New York City and DC. She arranged flights, lodging and activities. Superb customer service hence i have not stopped recommending her services to anyone I know. Keep up the good work Lisa.
