Nothing about travel is ordinary and neither are you.
Whether you know exactly where you want to go or need inspiration, we take a
collaborative approach to the process of planning your next adventure.
Industry experience, five-star service.
In an age of endless information and reviews on the internet, booking a trip can quickly feel like a second job. At Walks Around the World, we combine our extensive industry experience with personalized, one-on-one service to help you plan and enjoy the trips you’ve always dreamed of.
One night stopover with the VIP treatment to custom itinerary with every detail, we’ve got you covered! We can arrange on everything from your rental car to dining reservations, from air travel to travel insurance, from special event tickets to private museum tours, and everything in between.
How it Works
Walks Around the World utilizes a well-developed process to deliver the perfect experience tailored to every client.
We avoid the one-sized-fits all approach and build custom itineraries for every trip. It’s important to us to spend time developing meaning relationships with each of our clients.
Uncover your vision for the perfect trip!
We start with a complementary discovery session to get to know you better. We will chat about details such as your travel wish lists, preferred travel style, hobbies, likes & dislikes and more about the vision for your upcoming trip. The more details you share with us, the better we can tailor your travels. Anything we learn about you is important! This is a crucial step as building the trip of your dreams takes true collaboration!
Getting into the nitty-gritty!
Our fees helps cover the time it takes to research, plan, manage and book all components of your next adventure. These fees vary depending on the destinations, complexity and length of the trip. During our initial discovery session, we discuss how we will work together going forward and review Walks Around the World’s design fees to avoid any surprises along the way.
Sit back and relax!
This is where Walks Around the World gets to work using our travel expertise and connections to brainstorm itinerary ideas for hotels, tours and activities that fit your preferences and budget. Performing thorough research, drawing upon our extensive personal travels and relying on our deep industry network, we work tirelessly to find the best options for YOU. We will design a personalized itinerary going above and beyond to make sure your trip is memorable for all the right reasons, including recommendations for any activities and sights that will make the trip extra special. During this phase, you can be as involved or hands off as you would like – we welcome as much collaboration and input as you would like to give!
Waiting is the hardest part!
Once your itinerary has been perfected and finalized, we will start confirming bookings and reservations. Together with our partners, we are working behind the scenes to secure perks, special requests, upgrades and additional amenities at no extra cost to you. We also ensure any necessary travel documents and other travel resources are in order. Before departing, you will have your custom itinerary in hand and any additional reference materials to help you in your preparations and on your trip. Our industry leading technology leverages an interactive app so you’ll always know the plan for each day with travel documents at your fingertips, all available without service or WiFi . Throughout the process, we will remain engaged and join you in the anticipation of your upcoming travels!
Now comes the fun part! While you are relaxing, exploring, learning, connecting and memory making, we are always a phone call away should you need further assistance! We keep an eye on the details before, during and after your trip to ensure all is running smoothly. We will also put you in touch with a local contact who can assist with any itinerary changes, questions or emergencies in the moment. And, don’t forget to send us your snapshots along the way!
We can’t wait to hear all about your experience. Once you have returned, we will follow up to hear about your favorite memories, your favorite meal, your “not so favorite” parts and anything that could have been done differently so that we can apply what we learn to your future travels. We can’t wait to start planning your next adventure!

Jessica was great. She really took the time to understand what prior experiences especially resonated with my family (me, my wife, and 2 adult kids), and translated that into a curated Japan trip that delivered on the varied, demanding, and sometimes odd ways my family enjoys going deep when exploring a new country and culture.
We have been working with Jessica since we got married and planned our honeymoon – which was hands down the best trip of our lives. She takes all the stress out of finding activities, coordinating different components of a trip and finding the best rates for booking. We always have the absolute best time on trips that Jessica plans for us and she always includes such sweet memorable details! All we ever need to do is get on the flight and just enjoy our trips. We couldn’t be more thankful to her for helping us create amazing memories!
Jessica was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process of our vacation. She was a great listener and asked thoughtful questions to help us hone in on the details of our trip. She was attentive to details and was creative in helping us determine the best itinerary for our holiday. She was “on call” every moment leading up to the trip, during the trip, and even after we returned to make sure we were having the best experience possible. I would highly recommend her to others.
