the process


Bespoke. Private. Exclusive. Unique. Indulgent. Unforgettable.

Luxury doesn't mean the same for everyone. 
Let's collaborate to see what it can mean for you!


Working with a Luxury Travel Consultant is not unlike working with a financial advisor, interior decorator, or any other service provider where personal understanding is KEY! That is why I begin every collaboration with a complimentary consultation phone call to discover what makes you, YOU, and to hear what hopes you have for your next greatest adventure. This is also how you'll get to know me more, get a better understanding of how the process works, and learn the value of my services. If it's a mutually good fit, then on to Step 2! And if it's not (because it isn't always, see FAQs), no worries, I love talking travel and I'm happy to either make the connection with another advisor better suited for you, or wish you well in your own travel planning.

You sit back and relax while I do a deep dive into R & D! Be prepared to be patient in this phase because like a fine wine or a masterpiece painting, the perfect proposal for your adventure can take some time to curate. I'll be working with my VIP connections to secure the best experiences and opportunities for you, and since this is only accomplished through my personal relationships, time differences and varying schedules can delay things, but I promise, good things come to those who wait. I'll get back to you with a fully detailed proposal which will beautifully paint the picture of just how fabulous your adventure can be! Your proposal will have full pricing with options, and note deposit and cancellation policies for all components. You are still in the "complimentary" stage at this point. There is no fee for your proposal.

step 2


If you love what you see, wonderful, we can confirm your adventure and move on to Step 4! If not, I can certainly look at things another way for you. You may request 2 complimentary revisions of your proposal for things like change of date or destination, number of travelers, etc. After that, please understand that any further requests may be subject to a revision fee. Because no two adventures are alike, my service fees are quoted on a case by case basis. I will give you a ballpark estimate during the consultation call, with the specifics included in your quote proposal. Service fees are non-refundable and due at the time of booking.

step 3


Once your trip is under deposit, most of the collaboration will be one-sided...mine! I'll be working diligently to create a seamless adventure for you with as much attention to detail as I give my own travels. There may be a little back and forth with you in this phase depending on the details left to arrange (things like transfers, dining, spa, any tours or experiences not part of the package already booked). Once everything is arranged, I'll send the "bones" of your adventure in an ITINERARY AT A GLANCE for your review, and upon approval, I'll assemble more than you'll ever want or need to know about your adventure in your CUSTOMIZED DIGITAL ITINERARY APP sent to you 1-2 weeks before travel. Shortly before you go, I'll schedule a BON VOYAGE CALL with you to review your adventure's itinerary and address any last minute questions or concerns. Then you are on to STEP 5!

step 4


Finally!! Your long-awaited adventure is here and it is FULL of fabulousness! From private tours and drivers, to exclusive experiences, skip the line access, and immersive's all there! Most importantly, it's personalized and feels special, you know it's an adventure unlike anyone else's, and it feels so relaxing and reassuring to know that I am only a text, call, or email away should you have questions or need anything at all, but you'll be in such great hands with my trusted partners that it's unlikely you'll need me at all!

step 5


You can't get rid of me that easily! I can hardly wait to hear all about your adventure! I'll be reaching out to schedule a WELCOME HOME call to celebrate all the highs (and address any lows) and help you determine your "takeaways" and revised WANDERLIST as you start dreaming of your next adventure, because travel is like potato chips, and you know how that goes.

G Family, UK & Italy

"Marla helped us plan the most perfect, worry-free trip ever! Every detail was carefully planned and prepared so we were able to completely enjoy our vacation. Our flights, transfers, hotels, tours, activities, etc. were well thought out based on her knowledge of us and our wants and needs. Every place we stayed was first class, and the tours and activities we did were absolutely perfect. " 

LH Family, United Kingdom, Cruise

"The level of detail that Marla puts into her trip planning leaves very little chance for things to go wrong! Also, the fact that she assured us that she was just a phone call, text or email away no matter the time (or day) was a great relief for us. Marla’s travel knowledge is amazing, we are planning to use her services for many years to come!"

S Family, Chicago , Luxury Disney

"Like a Travel Fairy Godmother! Working with Marla is an absolute joy, and the world needs more people like her. Her experience, knowledge, and attention to detail is deeply appreciated, and she genuinely cares about the health and safety of my family, especially as we try to navigate traveling during this ever changing pandemic. Marla is a treasure."

B Family, Luxury Disney, The Breakers, Colorado

"The trip was meticulously planned by Marla and I did not experience one bit of exhaustion. I simply checked the app before bed to determine what time we needed to wake up. Then I scrolled thru the meticulously planned day, as the day progressed. From dining, entertainment, VIP Tour Guides and black car service, not one detail was missed. It was a fabulous trip that my family and I will repeat."
