My trips are carefully tailored to the interests and requirements of my clients. You stay in British and international membership only Clubs and reside in privately owned stately homes. You will dine at restaurants that are chosen for their status of excellency and for being ‘at the moment’.
My clients devote time for the preparation of their trips, they want to be inspired and they want to take home more than souvenirs.
"I only work with partners that are carefully sourced and are personally known to me and who share my philosophy. It is vital that my standards of quality are guaranteed and that normally closed doors are opened.”
CLIENT IS KING
“I invest much time, work and love into planning my trips, paying attention to the wishes and needs of my clients because for me the client is always King!”
“Sustainable travel is very important to me. I emphasise the fact that a major part of what you pay for your trip remains at the destination.”
" I make time to talk to my clients about their wishes and requirements. I listen to what you want to see and what you want to do, make suggestions and will then create your perfect trip.
During the trip which I will have painstakingly prepared with my local contacts, I am able to show my clients things that a normal tourist would never experience. You will move about like an insider and get to know people and places. For many people this is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
My clients invest time, money and high expectations in these individual journeys and I make sure that your investment pays off with exclusive travel experiences which you will remember for years to come."
For the last 10 years, under the name of Elegant Trips, I have planned and escorted tailored journeys.
I have worked for several years for one of the top Marketing and PR agencies in London specializing in travel and tourism.
I have traveled to over 45 countries worldwide and speak German, French and a little Spanish.
I have extensive contacts in the travel industry.
I am a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Scientific Exploration Society.
Dear Mrs Schaechterle,
We are home again and back to our normal routine. Although a few days have now elapsed since our exciting weekend of the ‚Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1‘, we would like to convey our heartfelt thanks for the perfect organization of our trip. We had the impression that you knew your stuff and did not make false promises. Everything was perfectly organized and painstakingly sourced; the choice of restaurants, helicopter, hotels, just perfect. The program, as much as the individually planned special requests were perfectly organized. We have no complaints whatsoever - the trip could not be faulted. We all had a great time.

Hello Mrs Schaechterle,
Two weeks have gone by since we had the privilege to experience the amazing Formula 1 weekend in Monte Carlo. Thanks to your perfect organization this event was an unparalleled event for us. The flight to Nice, the helicopter transfer to Monte Carlo, the transit to the hotel and the hotel itself, all top notch. The locations chosen by you on the different terraces of the hotels to view the qualifying and the race itself could not have been bettered. Also the choice of restaurants, the transfers to them showed your profound knowledge of the local scene. Thank you so much for everything. We will recommend your services with great joy. Until one of these days we remain with our best wishes from Pforzheim.
