Let Me Plan Your Trip



I’ve had many years and dozens of trips to try and err my way to expert traveler status. But what if you’ve only got two months—or two weeks—to take the trip of a lifetime?

This is where my Travel Coaching sessions come in. When you book a travel coaching session with me, I use more than a decade of real-world travel experience to plan a trip you’ll never forget.

How would you like to hike into the center of a volcano that spews blue fire? Cruise along the Nile river on a traditional sailboat? Hear lions roar as you fall asleep on the Serengeti? Frolic amid the largest ice sculptures in the world? No matter where in the world you plan to travel, let me curate experiences you’ll be talking about for years to come.

I can also optimize your free time on business trips. I empowered a recent client to discover Kyoto and Osaka after a conference in Tokyo, and helped another reward her team with an unforgettable corporate incentive trip in South Africa. I’ve even consulted MICE travelers in choosing the perfect convention and exhibition destinations.

Whether you travel for business, pleasure or both, a Travel Coaching session equips you with information, inspiration and a comprehensive itinerary—all you’ll need to do is get on the plane!

Book your session now, or continue reading to learn more about how Travel Coaching works:


One-on-One Consultation

Whether you prefer to video chat via Zoom, email or talk on the phone the old-fashioned way, we’ll chat until I understand exactly the trip you want to take.

Comprehensive Itinerary

Your custom itinerary includes detailed, personalized suggestions* for daily accommodation, transport, activities, dining and more. Sample itinerary available upon request.

Ongoing Support and Advice

It’ll only take me 1-2 weeks to get your itinerary put together, but I’m available to assist you right up until departure with questions and even minor** last-minute changes.


Due to the amount of time, energy and love I devote to crafting your custom itinerary, Travel Coaching is subject to a fee. My 2023 Travel Coaching fee schedule is below:

1-2 weeks
3-4 weeks
5-8 weeks
9+ weeks
On request

Just need some advice or pep-talk, but not a full itinerary? I offer à la carte Travel Coaching consulting calls! Please send me an email for pricing and availability.

All prices are in U.S. dollars. Sample itineraries available upon request. Payment is made via PayPal in advance of Zoom/email/phone chat to secure session. If booking window does not open, please email Travel Coaching request to [email protected]
*I am not a travel agent and I don’t book hotels or make dinner reservations. I will provide you with all the information you need for your trip, but I don’t want to lock you in!
**Examples of “minor” changes include suggesting a different restaurant one night, or selecting a new hotel for one city on account of changed circumstances
