Do you love having insider information when you travel - knowing the hidden gems and most authentic hotels? Do you love splurging on over the top experiences when they are absolutely worth it? When you go places do you enjoy staying active and exploring beyond the tourist areas? Do you believe amazing experiences are more valuable than buying another thing? Then you are in the right place. Join me each week for a rich conversation with one of my favorite travel experts from around the world. We will chat about our favorite experiences, people and hotels that make a trip extra special. Experiences you can have in places like Singita tented camps in Africa, Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand and Pikaia Lodge in the Galapagos. We’ll share our favorite off the beaten path gems and insider tips to elevate your trip beyond a simple vanilla luxury vacation. Adventures in Luxury Travel is hosted each week by Mimi Lichtenstein, the owner of Truvay Travel, a top luxury travel design company working with entrepreneurs and executives, who are also parents. Mimi is an expert in luxury travel, mom of three teens, and believer in the power of travel to connect people. If you dislike vanilla vacations, don’t want to miss out on the best of the best in your destination, and love the VIP treatment, this is the podcast for you.
