A personal note from Ales!
It’s almost Spring, at least here in Vancouver, Canada where I live!
Did you know that this is the perfect time to plan and book your travel for 2018? Hotels are mostly still wide open for bookings for the year and arranging them early, will give you the best options to choose from the different room categories.
This time of year is also the slower season for airlines and there are a lot of great airfares to be had all around the world, which I am happy to check for you.
Many of you have already had the experience of me making the arrangements for your journeys and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your trust and giving me the opportunity to take care of such a special time in your lives.
Most people only have 2 – 3 weeks of vacation time a year and whenever I plan any itineraries for my clients, I treat this as one of the most precious investments they make.
In order to create the best experiences possible, I don’t just use tour operators in any given country whom I have never worked with – I actually visit my contacts and meet them in person.
Last year for example, I met with my guides and local contacts for India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore, Australia, Italy, Sweden, Germany, Croatia & Slovenia and I will be spending 3 weeks in March and April in Nicaragua, Guatemala and Panama.
This is of course in addition to all the wonderful people we already work with all around the world and these relationships also assure that wherever you are going, you’ll be well taken care of and always have a “local friend” who will be there to offer assistance whenever needed.
During my visits, I also always do extensive hotel inspections, where I have the chance to see their rooms in the different categories, visit their restaurants as well as all the other public spaces of the properties and meet with some of the staff working at the property. This allows me to have a first hand experience of many of the hotels I book for my clients.
Besides doing customized itineraries catered to your needs, please remember that we can also arrange:
*We have special rates for many cruises all around the world unique to us because of our association with the Signature Travel Network.
I am very blessed to be able to do all my trips with my amazing son, Isaac, who is now 16 years old and accompanies me wherever I go. He is the best travel companion I could have ever wished for. – Who knows, one day he might be the one taking care of your trips. 🙂
If you are ready to plan your travel for 2018, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.
I am always happy to receive your e-mails and to have a chat about your travel plans.
Wishing you all wonderful and inspiring Spring season.
I’ve been passionate about travel ever since I can remember. Having had the opportunity to travel all around the world for many years it’s my greatest desire to enrich peoples lives in a profound way by creating unforgettable journeys, and give each of my clients the amazing experiences I’ve had throughout my travels.
By allowing me to design your journeys, you can be assured that you will be taken care of from the moment we start planning your vacation until the moment you return. Contact me and let me know where you would like to go or let me help you find the destination that will give you the experience you are looking for.
May all your travels stir your soul and change your life forever – Ales.
