Honeymoon? Trip with the in-laws? Three countries in ten days? I got you.

When it comes to travel planning, there’s so much information out there. You could get recommendations from your friends and family… You could crowd-source on Instagram or go deep on Reddit… You could spend hours combing every guidebook and website and travel blog out there, making detailed, cross-referenced spreadsheets… oh—is that only me?

But here’s the problem:

How do you know if the information is good? Does that guy who rated that restaurant on Google Maps have the same taste as you? What if you show up at the hotel and your room looks nothing like the picture online? Is that town your friend mentioned worth adding to your already-packed itinerary? Is that blogger’s opinion really her own?

Hola, I’m Stephanie!

And fortunately for you, I’m an award-winning travel expert. I spent the last 11 years working at one of the best luxury tour operators in the world, and I’ve planned customized trips for hundreds of demanding, discerning clients (think Succession, but nicer).

But I also know that a full-blown private tour with lots of hand-holding isn’t what everyone wants. You might not even need someone to make hotel reservations for you. Sometimes, you just want someone who gets you—but who also knows what they’re talking about—to tell you where to go, how to put it all together, and what to see and do in each place.

Well, you’re in luck, my friend, because that someone is me!

My full travel planning service is perfect if you need help planning something special or more complicated, or if you just want an amazing (fun, interesting, unforgettable) trip without the time and work of planning it.

“Your recommendations for our Japan honeymoon were spot on. We wouldn’t have thought of some of the places on our own, and they ended up being our favorite parts of the trip!” – Sheila S., Chicago

How it works:

  1. We’ll start with a 30-minute initial consultation call so I can get to know you and what you’re looking for
  2. I’ll send you a preliminary itinerary outline based on our conversation
  3. If it’s not perfect, send me feedback and request any changes, and I’ll send you a revised outline
  4. Once you give me the go-ahead, I’ll fill it in with details, logistics, and personalized recommendations
  5. I’ll also send you lots of other tips and destination information
  6. If you have any more questions during the process or before you you leave, we’ll have another 30-minute call
  7. You have an amazing trip!

“Our Italy trip was awesome. I was able to check every single item off my bucket list!” – Tammy B., Indiana

Price starts at $850 for up to a 10-night trip.

What’s included

  • A 30-minute initial consultation over Zoom and one 30-minute follow-up call
  • A preliminary itinerary outline for up to 10 nights and 6 people, plus one revision (longer itineraries or more people for a supplement)
  • Expert recommendations for hotels, restaurants and activities, plus any relevant booking information and direct booking links
  • Guidance on booking flights, trains, transfers and local guides, if you want them
  • Destination information covering visas, tipping, what to pack, and more
  • My favorite books, TV shows, movies and music to get you excited for your trip—and to spark memories after you return

What happens if I change my mind?

If you decide my services aren’t the right fit for you after we talk, I’ll refund the planning fee, minus $50 for the cost of the initial consultation call. No hard feelings—I want to make sure we’re right for each other.

Please note that due to the time and work involved, no refunds will be given once an initial itinerary outline is sent, regardless of whether you decide to continue the process.
