Content Creator and Travel Coordinator
This is not your typical travel agency. For us, organizing a trip to New York is more than just offering a packet with the flight, accommodations and the excursions, activities or airport transfers; it’s going a step further. It is supporting our clients at every moment, helping them plan their trip as a local, giving advice and of course helping them with any questions they might have during the organization of the trip and while they are in New York. It is this philosophy that makes us proud to have organized so many trips to New York over the past two and a half years (groups, honeymooners, groups of friends, couples, business incentive trips and even working with other travel agencies). We truly hope with each trip to New York that we help plan is an unforgettable experience for the client and that they fall in love with the city as much as we have.
