"Named as a Condé Nast Traveler Top Specialist for 2023"

I am so honored to be named by Condé Nast Traveler as a Top Travel Specialist 2023 for Italy Travel and Europe Expertise. Can't wait to begin planning your extraordinary travel adventures!

Welcome to:

This is travel for those who yearn to taste, touch, hear, and savor their destination—not just check it off a “must-see” list.

This is travel that’s perfectly planned—but that leaves room for the unexpected (because that’s often where adventure lies!).

Our connections to expert in-destination partners and our own extensive personal travel experience result in journeys well worth writing home about, from Siena to the Serengeti. And it all happens effortlessly for you. As your full-service travel agency, we take the reins on every travel detail.

Get ready for an escape filled with moments, big and small, that inspire you, awe you, and awaken your senses in brand new ways. 

Travel as It Should Be

This is travel for immersive explorers.

Meet Laney Sachs

I’m not just enthusiastic about travel—I live travel, each and every day. From plotting out my clients’ next great escape, to logging airmiles on my own adventures (I always have a suitcase packed and at the ready!), travel drives me in everything I do.

I’ve learned a few things along the way, and I’d love to share them with you. Learn a bit more about my journey to founding my own travel agency—it involves quite a few glasses of Italian wine!
