Explore the world like a local with rare insights into global destinations.
Our Travel Insiders are the designers of unforgettable vacations. Leave your trip in their skilled hands so you can save time, discover new places and unlock a unique itinerary tailor-made with your passions and personal interests top of mind.
A Travel Insider must live and breathe the areas they specialize in. Not only will they introduce you to the world of the locals, they can help insure you experience the authentic and the unexpected, all while staying within your budget.
Travel like a local not a tourist. Get insider access to unique events, offbeat excursions, and unconventional itineraries. And if you're an American Express Card Member, you can enjoy valuable offers, travel programs, and other benefits when you book with one of our Travel Insiders.
Choose your travel InsiderBrowse our roster of expert Insiders and choose your perfect match. You can even choose an Insider who shares the same interests as you.
Tell us about your dream getawayYour travel dreams do not come on a checklist. They come to life through a one-on-one conversation with a Travel Insider. Your conversation will then give our Insider a sense of your unique travel expectations and desires. You will learn how the program works and which planning fees may apply. Then, with your approval, our Insiders will roll up their sleeves and begin designing your one-of-a-kind trip.
Approve your itineraryIt is your vacation to enjoy and you have the final say in everything. Your Travel Insider will send your proposed itinerary directly to you. Review it, make changes and if it satisfies and impresses you, you can be on your way. If not, our Insider will work with you to fine-tune the details to perfection.
Our vacations are made to be remembered for a lifetime. To achieve this requires years of experience in travel planning. And that is why being an American Express Travel Insider is a distinction reserved for only a select few.
To qualify, we require all our Insiders to become fully immersed in the local knowledge of their area of specialization. This is not information you will find by browsing the web or skimming travel books. Our Insiders must feast on the customs of the area, in addition to regularly visiting and actively planning trips. This keeps them up with the latest on all fronts. From relaxing accommodations and thrilling adventures to trendy restaurants and classic museums and everything between, our Insiders have you covered.

“Bali is truly magical: Many religions live and work in harmony here, and the entire culture reflects this spiritual coexistence. It's awe-inspiring to witness the offerings made throughout the day at any of the 20,000 temples that dot the countryside. With over 20 years in the travel industry and a life-long fascination with Bali, I offer clients an unparalleled vacation experience-from visiting the home of a local family to a personalized diagnosis from a medicine healer. Fall in love with the "Island of the Gods" during an exploration of the rice paddies, where you'll watch the locals as they prepare for market, or discover the brilliance and beauty of the tiered aqueducts on a bike tour of the UNESCO site, Jatiluwih. Outdoorsy types will go wild for a rafting trip along the Ayung River, and foodies will revel in a Rijstaffel feast, where over 40 tasty dishes satisfy your every craving. No matter what thrills you seek, by contacting me today, you can rest assured the journey will be life changing.”Read more

“Southern France was my home for three years; I speak the language and have wholeheartedly embraced the French way of life. Time seems to move slower here, meals are about togetherness more than just sustenance, and people take their vacations very seriously. With my Insider tips, you too will discover joy in the little things: like sampling the perfect bouillabaisse-which purists claim can only be made with Mediterranean seafood-at a quaint, sea-side restaurant where mentioning my name results in a welcome cocktail. Need to de-stress? Do as the French do and "take the waters" at the extraordinary spas I'll recommend. Thinking about attending the Monaco Grand Prix? I'll book you fabulous accommodations and find terrific vantage points for race viewing. From a palace hotel to a country inn in the Alps, you can trust my suggestions because they're based on personal experience. Don't wait a minute longer-contact me today for an authentic slice of the Joie de Vivre.”Read more

“My passion and specialty is helping couples plan the most important trip, their honeymoon! As a 15- year travel professional with CTC (Certified Travel Counselor) designation, I am able to help you plan and coordinate the ideal honeymoon or romance vacation . Very early on in my career, I learned one very important thing - it's all in the details. There is nothing more detailed than planning a destination wedding and over the years I have created lasting memories for hundreds of couples. There are wonderful destinations that cater to couples wanting to experience a honeymoon or romantic getaway and they are Bermuda, Caribbean, Las Vegas, Hawaii and Tahiti. I happen to be a travel specialist in each of these areas and I know I could help you plan a wonderful experience. One Caribbean island that I feel very connected to is Jamaica. I have traveled to this island over 30 times and it is the perfect place for honeymooners or romantic get-togethers. Jamaica offers many all- inclusive packages, which mean you can leave all your worries behind you and just enjoy yourself. Call me soon to begin planning your upcoming honeymoon or destination wedding and leave all the details to me!”Read more

“I love everything about Germany! Living there for three years has given me insight into the culture and the people that other agents don't have. The Mosel Wine region is one of my favorite locales; let me share with you the exciting experience of tasting new wines as they debut. Don't miss grabbing lunch at one of the best spots in Bernkastle, where you can dine overlooking the river, on fish that was swimming there only moments before. Much like the Germans themselves, I am meticulously organized, ensuring that you won't have to worry about a single detail of your itinerary. I've been in the industry for over 30 years; as a former agency owner, I hold myself to the highest standard of customer service. I'll recommend the best spots to dine-surprisingly, small local hotels often offer the most authentic and delicious cuisine-and I'll insist that you try the locally crafted beer and wine. Only an insider can show you the true spirit of this great nation; contact me today to start planning.”Read more

“Not only have I visited this continent three times in the last ten years, but I have also personally escorted a three week group to Africa, where we visited four different African countries. I have visited all major sights and done all the major activities that you will want to include in your African Vacation, from exploring the tombs of Egypt, to taking an exciting Safari ride. One of the most incredible things I experienced in Africa was the Ngorongoro Crater. This is the largest collapsed volcanic crater in the world, with only one road to travel. There are over 30,000 animals that live in this crater, called the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Another must do in Africa, a visit to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This is where most African Safaris in Tanzania take place. And why not think about taking a hot air balloon safari in Masai Mara, or spend one night in a tented camp. For travelers who want a personal touch to really bring to life their next trip, I can offer some great insight that I did not learn from a brochure or the internet, but rather from my own experience in planning trips to this wonderful destination.”Read more

“Variety is the spice of life on the Mayan Riviera, the coastal fringe of the Yucatan Peninsula. I think of it as a vacation paradise where white sand and turquoise waters mix with ancient culture and ethnic flavor, and there is something for everyone: couples, singles and families. Not only can you play by the sea, you can swim with the dolphins and snorkel to your heart's content. You can climb an ancient Mayan ruin or raft down a lazy river running in part underground. You'll find shopping, nightlife, horseback riding, bird watching, deep-sea fishing and more. I look forward to working with you to plan a vacation that will make you say: I love the Mayan Riviera!”Read more
