testimonials & FAQ's

Do you only plan family travel?

No—our focus is on serving busy parents who yearn for meaningful travel experiences. That may mean a bond-building escape with the kids, a multigenerational getaway with grandparents, a romantic journey for just the grown ups, or even a long-overdo vacation with friends. 

Frequently Asked Questions


What destinations can you design trips to?

Do you charge a fee for your design services?

Yes, we ask for a Design Fee before we begin curating and booking your trip. This fee covers our time researching your best options, coordinating all your bookings so your itinerary unfolds seamlessly, and procuring you access to the top partners and properties around the world.

Our Design Fee differs depending on the length and complexity of your travel experience. We’ll share the exact fee with you after our consultation call, before we begin planning. You can see our “starting at” fees for different travel experiences on our specialties page.

I only need to book a hotel—can you help?

How do you plan trips to destinations you haven’t personally been to?

While we haven’t personally been everywhere, our professional network spans the globe. We have special access to local industry partners who have a pulse on their destinations, providing insights into how to best experience a place immersively, as well as providing in-country support when our clients need it. Our affiliation with industry invite-only consortias also means that whatever property we recommend to you is vetted and up to the highest luxury standards.

Kind Words from Beautiful Clients

"I cannot recommend The Bespoke Destination highly enough! From the moment I contacted Michelle and her team to plan our vacation to Australia I knew I was in good hands. The level of professionalism, expertise, and personalized attention I received was unparalleled. When checking into our hotel at the Four Seasons in Sydney we were treated with VIP services which we hadn’t received with previous Four Season stays. Michelle also helped arrange early check in which was beyond helpful with an early flight arrival. We had never used a travel advisor before this trip and the level of ease and satisfaction exceeded our expectations.
