Welcome to Ingenious Travel

Seasoned travelers, best friends,
dreamers & adventurers welcome.

Here at Ingenious Travel we believe that part of our job as agents is to be storytellers and authors. We don’t just book your hotel and flight. We listen to you and try to understand what you want to accomplish from your holiday or vacation so that we can provide it.

Are you a solo traveler who thirsts for adventure?

Are you part of a group or business wanting to strengthen relationships with your members/clients ?

Whatever your desire, be it a book club’s tour of the Napa Valley or a buddy group traveling to see a sporting event, we listen and then we provide.

Everyone can travel to a city and see sights. Not everyone will have an adventure that they remember well into their golden years. THAT’s the business we’re in; creating memories and helping you make and collect the stories of your life.

Some travel agencies work with the same tour companies to provide a very rote -boring- vacation. We don’t do that. We know that as an individual or group of individuals you want something that speaks to you, that you can cherish and remember.

Life is about personal moments that touch you. You may not remember the time you went with a group on a tour of the Louvre with an established guide, nearly as well as you will remember where you ate breakfast as you watched an elephant walk through your dining area. We get that.

We want to work with you to plan not just a trip, but an adventure.
