Have you ever dreamed of taking off in a hot air balloon high above Tuscany as you sip Prosecco and take in the pastoral landscape of vineyards, gardens and orchards that line the Arno River? Perhaps your pilot will set you down along a scenic spot for an exquisite picnic brunch with local delights.
If that doesn’t sound tempting enough, might we suggest a private party in Bolgheri, Italy’s medieval village. You’ll travel back to this magical time and celebrate Tuscan 15th century history, culture, art, and traditions. The village will be closed to you and your guests while you enjoy open air entertainment, wandering through the delightful shops and restaurants, sampling the traditional Tuscan cuisine, and savoring the internationally acclaimed wines of this region.
Then, you can head over to Provence and board a private helicopter for a 30-minute flight from Monaco to the cliff-side inn and restaurant of acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse. Stroll the grounds filled with lavender and olive trees, and enjoy a sublime feast for the senses.
Do you love fashion? This past June, a client contacted me because her daughter was going to intern in Paris for part of the summer. Her major is fashion and her mother wanted to really give her a gift to remember. Your Travel Consultant can jump into action and create an itinerary that can include a behind-the-scenes fashion view in the three fashion capitals – New York, Milan and Paris. Besides experiencing unique venues that are not open to the public, this mom and daughter team met with some trendy fashion designers, designed their own personal fragrance at a perfume workshop with experts, took in musicals and operas, set on a helicopter experience to see the sights of New York and Paris, and had a private dinner at a property belonging to a couple of designers. We didn’t quit there and managed a bubbles and diamonds top exclusive VIP visit to two amazing designer showrooms and to Vuitton on the Champs Elysées.
Mom’s trip would not have been complete without bringing home the Birkin Bag. For those of you familiar with Hermes, you know that this is an impossible feat. There is a waiting list of more than two years unless of course you are a client of an educated, experienced Concierge Services. With global connections, both mom and daughter experienced the trip of a lifetime.These are just some of the examples of VIP experiences that we have brought to our clients over the years.
