Designing Woman

Susan Farewell worked as a travel writer for many years and turned her experience into a “travel designing” business. For those with money to spend and a zest for adventure, she can create journeys that go above and way beyond. One local client raved,  “We just returned from our second custom-designed vacation. Whether receiving a Buddhist monk’s blessing or a nighttime food tour on the back of a Vespa, Susan’s attention to detail assured an unforgettable experience you couldn’t get booking on your own.” Notes Farewell, “These moments are well worth the fee.”

Multigenerational Journeys

Cindi Mirchin-Work of Elli Travel is a Virtuoso agent. These advisors are an elite group within the industry and maintain relationships with top hotels. “We can secure many amenities,” she notes. One trend she’s seeing in concierge travel? Multigenerational trips. Mirchin-Work designs trips to Tuscany, for instance, where whole families—from Grandma down to a kindergartener—can participate in pasta- making classes.

Straight to the Points 

Robert Karp grew up in Briarcliff Manor and now runs Miles Ahead, a high-end travel advisory firm, even though he’s still a student at Cornell. In addition to developing luxury trips for people, Karp can secure perks for non-humans, as well. “At Tennessee’s Blackberry Farm, the family dog had a personalized bed and treats,” he recalls. If you have Champagne dreams but a beer budget, Miles Ahead can help you parse reward programs and tally up your points to create a dream trip. “I once booked two first-class tickets and a seven-night stay in the Maldives with a client’s 600,000 points,” Karp says. “Retail value was $30,000.”
