One of our favorite parts of being travel advisors is getting to know all of the great gossip and insider knowledge about what’s coming soon in the world of luxury travel. Rather than keep these exciting updates to ourselves, we’ve decided to share these insights with you, our lovely clients, on a monthly basis. Check out below to see the hotels, experiences, and more that we are most excited to have on our radar this month!

Virtuoso Travel Week

Virtuoso Travel Week is back and our team will be there in full force! Just as fashion buyers attend Fashion Week, we head to Virtuoso Travel Week to shop the newest in travel trends and products. This week-long extravaganza of luxury and experiential travel professionals provides us a unique and valuable insight into worldwide destinations, hotels and travel trends that we can then pass along to you! Do you have a particular destination on your wishlist for your next trip? Let us know and we will keep an eye out for some great options for you.

Christian Dior at the V&A Museum London

August is your last chance to see the special exhibition, Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum! This exhibit spanning the famed desinger’s 70+ year career was scheduled to close mid-July but has been extended for special viewing through September 1. Want to experience this inside look at the iconic design house for yourself? Contact us for tickets and more! Plus, we can customize the rest of your trip and give you exclusive perks at London’s top hotels.

Mayan Culture & Natural Wonders with Tauck

We know it’s hot (and humid!) in Houston right now, but lets face it, come January we’ll all be ready for some fun in the sun! Mexico is so convenient to Houston that most of us have been there done that, but luxury travel company Tauck has come up with a new way to see the Yucatan with their 10 day cruise Mayan Culture & Natural Wonders, sailing roundtrip Cancun and visiting some of the most beautiful Mayan ruins in Central America. With only three sailings in January and no others scheduled through 2020 or beyond, now is the time to jump on this opportunity! Contact us for more information.

Rebirth of an Icon: Raffles Singapore

Singapore is very well known for its modern side, which is understandable when you think about the most well known landmarks, a hotel with a ship perched on top and a “forest” of buildings that looks like something straight out of Avatar. However, this island city was once the jewel of the British Colonial crown and the iconic Raffles Singapore was a central part of this from the time it’s doors first opened in 1887. After over 130 years of life, this icon has spent the last 2 years undergoing a facelift and is finally ready to fully reopen and to begin writing its newest chapter late this month. Whether you want to explore the glitzy, “Crazy Rich Asians” side of the city, or the charming colonial history, contact us for help making your trip exceptional!

Grand Voyages with Silversea

Silversea has popped up on our news feeds a lot lately, first it was the announcement of a fully reimagined Silver Shadow, then the announcement that their amazing new ship, the Silver Origin, which has been specially designed for the Galapagos is now open for booking starting summer 2020. Now they’ve announced a slew of new “Grand Voyages” scheduled for late 2020 and 2021, including three expedition cruise options. Whether you are looking to explore Australia, Asia, the South Pacific or South America, there is something for everyone in the collection. You can even combine three of the cruises to experience a 169 day tour from Ushuaia all the way to Tromsø, Norway. Thinking this is something you might be interested in? These will sell out fast, so call us today!
