No Two Travelers are Alike

We understand that no two travelers are alike so we offer endless travel choices for first-time visitors and unique, “off-the-beaten-path” itineraries for repeat guests. Our Travel Advisor clients have helped us become the best in the business for customized travel to Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific Islands and Asia.

Our Destinations


From cosmopolitan cities to the rugged outback and tropical rainforest to the Great Barrier Reef, Australia is a land of amazing contrasts. Nearly 80 percent of Australia's 23 million citizens live in cities along the coast, leaving much of its interior to its wild and natural state. With roughly the same geographic area as the continental U.S., each of Australia's states and territories has its own unique flavor.

New Zealand

From mountain peaks to deep fiords and rolling plains, New Zealand’s landscapes offer incomparable beauty with a relatively small, yet very hospitable, population. It’s an unspoiled nation of remarkable vistas, with more than half the country protected as national park or reserve land.

About the same size as California, the country is made up of three islands: the North Island, South Island and Stewart Island. Each area is home to its own special treasures.

South Pacific Islands

With so many options in the South Pacific, it is no wonder visitors get confused. Fiji offers a cultural island getaway with great diving and snorkeling, hosted by the world’s friendliest people. Tahiti is known for powdery white-sand beaches and turquoise lagoons teeming with tropical fish. The Cook Islands offer a remote island paradise, discovered by few tourists. Then there is Papua New Guinea, an adventure to a land untouched by time, with countless anthropological adventures awaiting discovery. No matter what travelers seek, we have it covered.


Asia is a continent rich in history, culture and charm. Each of its incredible countries offers a completely distinct and entirely unique travel experience. Explore Thailand and its land of smiles, Bali and its exotic landscapes and secluded beaches, Hong Kong’s lively city center and world-famous shopping, Macau’s unique blend of Asian and Portuguese cultures or Vietnam and Cambodia’s unique and immersive culture.


Your Maldives vacation experience starts from the time you board your seaplane or speedboat to transfer to your island hideaway. Step ashore on a white sand beach lapped by turquoise waters and feel your cares slip away. Imagine a candlelit dinner on the beach under a star-filled sky, or a long romantic lunch on a platform in the middle of a lagoon. Spa treatments designed for couples, gourmet cuisine and fine wines, spectacular overwater villas designed to offer complete privacy - the Maldives really is the most perfect place to celebrate being in love.
