Every year, Travel + Leisure editors evaluate hundreds of luxury-travel advisors to determine which ones will best serve our readers. After receiving input from our Travel Advisory Board (select owners and operators who consult with us on industry and consumer trends) and other experts, we vet each and every one.
What do we look for? It starts with unique itineraries, exclusive access, and positive client testimonials. We also seek professionals who travel often to the destinations they specialize in (at least once a year) and who make a concerted effort to deliver more than their clients expect.
