is a Boutique Full Service
Founded in 2011 by spouses Anthony Rubenstein and Mayret Gonzalez Rubenstein, and is owned and operated along with a tight knit group of family and friends.
We come from the worlds of the Arts, Food, Fashion, Design, and Music. We are, DJ’s, Dancers, Artists, Architects, Writers, Photographers and Philosophers (yes, really). There’s even a nuclear physicist in the mix. Our IATA accreditation demonstrates that we are also travel logistics and management pros. We combine our insider cultural knowledge with our IATA-accredited travel professional know-how to plan flawless vacations.
We are dedicated to the quality of our trips, not the quantity. We have the accredited pro travel experience and infrastructure to make our trips flow flawlessly, while we still maintain the one-to-one hands-on touch with our clients that bigger agencies fail to deliver.

We're Not a Big Corporate Agency And We Don't Want to Be
Each of our trips is handcrafted by us for each client. Every vacation we create is specially designed specifically for each client’s personal interests, lifestyle, and budget. We create our trips by filling the days (and nights) with our exclusive activities that are fun and interesting to our clients.
Every vacation we create is specially designed specifically for each client’s personal interests, lifestyle, and budget. We create our trips by filling the days (and nights) with our exclusive activities that are fun and interesting to our clients. We are the producers and originators of every aspect of our trips. Even third party services that we do contract, like hotels or ground transportation, are carefully screened personally by us.
Your Vacation Time Is Precious To Us
We treat your vacation time as precious, more precious in fact, than the money you invest in a trip.
In most cases our clients plan a trip with us for months in advance, maybe having saved-up those vacation days for years. With a big corporate agency, or if it’s a DIY trip, when something goes wrong, like the airline cancels a flight, or a car gets a flat tire, you might later be able to get a refund from the airline (good luck with that). But you can never recover your vacation time.
We appreciate that you put your trust in to us. We expect ever trip to go off flawlessly, after all they’re paying us for perfect. But every once in awhile the unexpected happens-may be a car gets a flat tire. Our commitment to you is to personally efficiently and effectively react at the rare moments something unexpectedly goes wrong, and get your vacation back on track as soon as possible.
In destinations with over tourism, like Spain, we get you out of the masses of tourists, past the lines, into the most fascinating sites with expert guides.
In under-developed destinations like Colombia and Cuba, we have the experience and infrastructure to make your trip flow flawlessly in the most challenging circumstances.
Read What Our Clients Have To Say
From the planning of the trip to the people we met and guided us through the country, this was an educational and informative trip filled with Cuban culture, history, and Art.
I'm not big on planned trips but I am so glad we found you and your team for this experience! Thank you!
