Luxury Leisure & Corporate Travel Agent

Whether you are traveling for business or leisure, making your trip one to remember is my goal. One of my favorite words is the German word, 'Fernweh'; it means an ache for distant places; a craving for travel. Some might translate it as wanderlust, but it’s actually a feeling much deeper than that. To me, 'Fernweh' is the desire to experience as many other cultures, languages, foods and people, and that’s what propels my passion for travel.

The Wonders of River Cruising

The Wonders of River Cruising

I used to think river cruising was just for people over 85, but after a cruise along the Rhine with my mom, I am totally hooked. I discovered that people of all ages appreciate the advantages of exploring the world from ... Read more from my The Wonders of River Cruising bio.

International Road Trips

One of my favorite kinds of vacations to plan are road trips through exotic places. I’ve driven through Tunesia, Morocco, Tahiti, and much of Europe. It is a great way to really get into a destination.

Hidden Gems in Greece

One of my favorite travel finds was the Greek island of Folegandros. You pass it if you’re traveling between Milos and Santorini, but most people go right past it. It almost looks like it’s a deserted island.

There’s a small white town by the beach and the biggest draw is a church ...Read more from my Hidden Gems in Greece story.

Client Testimonials

Dream Honeymoon

Porto was the perfect place to start the trip. It is so gorgeous; unique and colorful. The hotel upgraded us to a river view room and it was just amazing. We did a Port cellar tour and that was a highlight of the time there. I think if we had another day we would’ve headed to the valley to see a vineyard, but that's a thing for next time! Lisbon itself was fun, but heading to Belem was especially notable. Beautiful monuments and museums along the river, and as you had promised, the tarts from Pastéis de Belém were genuinely life-changing. You crafted for us something more ambitious than I think we ever would’ve undertaken on our own and Ashley, you made us our dream honeymoon. I can never thank you enough for that trip.

I will never plan a vacation without her again!

Ashely takes care of everything so that you can have a dream vacation. She planned our honeymoon to French Polynesia and we only had to show up. The air, hotels, meals, activities and transportation were all taken care of, she even had local activities to suggest because she had previously been there! Ashley took the time to get to know us, what we wanted and then exceeded all our expectations! I will never plan a vacation without her again!

Impressive Knowledge of Iceland

Ashley Les is a top notch travel expert. I went to her with an idea of wanting to go to Iceland and in no time she presented to me different flight and accommodation options, which included helpful insider tips and suggestions. The booking process was seamless and I was very impressed with her knowledge of Iceland. One of the most helpful things she did was send me an ideal itinerary, which outlined every “must see” attraction in Iceland, including certain tours, restaurant recommendations and local stops we wouldn’t have otherwise found. I am very satisfied with my experience and I’ve already moved on to planning my next trip with Ashley!

Honeymoon of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Jennifer - New York | Traveled to Maldives ~ Central Asia
We first worked with Ashley back in 2013 with a different agency, and she helped book a trip that was one of the best I've ever taken to Barbados (I even went back this year!) For this honeymoon booking, she has been so thorough, prompt, and professional. We were so anxious about making honeymoon plans after so much wedding planning, and Ashley worked with us to craft the trip of a lifetime to Sri Lanka and The Maldives. We highly highly highly recommend working with her!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
