Authentic Vacations That are Always Tailored to You

Every single aspect of your escape is personalized to your preferences. I work one-on-one with my clients to uncover what thrills them about travel, so I can include more of that in their custom itineraries—while I eliminate all the guesswork that goes into off-the-beaten-path exploring.

Discover the Eckols Travel Difference

The real value of working with a personal travel advisor?

If you want an off-the-beaten-path journey, but don’t have the hours of free time necessary to piece it all together …

If you feel like a hamster on the never-ending wheel of research, overwhelmed by the endless travel options you’ve found online …

If you’re worried that amazing travel moments all fall outside of your budget, or that you’ll overspend on mediocre experiences …

Banish all Your Trip Planning Pains

Catch a wave with a tico in Costa Rica. Tour a chateau wine cellar with a French count. Go fly fishing with a third-generation bonefisherman in the Bahamas.

Nobody knows a destination like the locals. That’s why, through my global relationships with on-the-ground tour companies, I match you with local guides and experts who can show you the real side of your destination (the side that tourists only armed with a guidebook & Google miss).

Eat, sip, and explore like a local—and make connections that stay with you for life.

Step 3


Step 2

After the call, I’ll send over my Design Fee and then get started. Now that I’ve learned about your travel dreams, it’s time to spin them into a reality; I’ll work closely with my travel partners to craft your itinerary proposal. Once you approve—and after I’ve made any tweaks that you request—I’ll book all the elements of your trip for you.  


Step 1

Start by simply sending in my brief contact form or schedule a complimentary call—I’ll then reach out. On this call, I want to learn all about your travel dreams—where you want to go, how you prefer to travel, your likes and dislikes, and more. My goal is to dig deep so that I can uncover all the information I need to craft a tailored escape for you. 



With a seamless itinerary in place and all your travel pre-arranged, there’s only one thing left to do: pack! Once you depart, rest easy knowing you have support every step of the way. Just reach out to me or my in-destination partners for expert assistance if you need it. 

Explore deeply. Lounge around. Tee off. Eat well. Pedal fast. Whether you’re seeking a relaxing fun-in-sun escape, a rip-roaring adventure, or an immersive and authentic cultural journey, let me design it all.

What is your Design Fee? 

I’m proud to be affiliated with Virtuoso, the leading consortia for luxury travel advisors, through my host agency Gifted Travel Network. The Virtuoso connection often allows me to pass on special perks to my clients at Virtuoso properties that may include early check in/late check out, room upgrades, spa/resort credits, complimentary breakfast, and more (all subject to availability). 

What perks and amenities can you get me?

A range! I often work with both families and couples (as well as groups of friends). I like to insure every vacation I design is authentic to my clients needs, wants, and likes. 

What types of vacations do you specialize in?

My Design Fee differs depending on the particulars of your trip—your trip length, number of travelers, trip complexity, etc. Once we chat on our complimentary consultation call together, I’ll share your exact fee with you!
