What does a Travel Curator do?
Just as you need a professional to handle your fashion or medical requirements. Likewise you need a specialist to handle your travel requirements, which is tailor made exclusively for you. Especially now, 2021 onwards. As a travel curator we have our pulse on travel with so many travel restrictions and protocols in place keeping in mind the hygiene factors. A travel specialist is the way forward!
We study destinations, activities, hotels just like any other professional. We spend our time and money visiting destinations, inspecting hotels to understand which hotel will fit the need of our travelers, the activities and sights have been experienced by us before we suggest them to you. We curate itineraries as per your specifications and inclinations. We do not provide “one shoe fits all” type of travel solutions instead we design travels as per what “YOU’ want, keeping your interest in mind.
When you have never been to a country or city before, it can be tough to know what to expect. Of course you can google it all up and get an overdose of information, but how much of it is true and how much time would spend going thru it all! The internet is all about hyperbole, stale news and fake reviews, which can be confusing for you to know what is the truth and what isn’t.
Personalization is the name of the game. We know you by your first name, what your family enjoys, your likes, your dietary preferences, your travel style, You are just not another phone number for us, but you are our priority. You are not a sale for us but a long term relationship that we cherish!

Creating these for you is what we thrive on! We have information on the latest travel trends and activities and can curate your itinerary with experiences that you would cherish for a long long time!
Booking you vacay online can incur a lot of hidden costs on fees, fares and bank charges without you realizing. We are always transparent with an all-inclusive cost and inclusions.
