If any of our existing trips aren't your cup of tea have no fear, we also offer customized travel for groups of allsizes! Custom trips are a great option for a girls getaway, family reunion, destination wedding, honeymoon, wellness weekend, corporate retreat, or business event. Customized travel is available for gals, guys or a mixed group of both and is specifically curated to meet your unique needs and interests.
If you don't want to go with a group, but you like one of WAT's (Women's Adventure Travels) trips and you want to book at another time, we can custom design for you and your crew. All of our existing trips listed here with WAT are available for you and your crew to enjoy on your own. We can also work with you to custom design any trip to anywhere you'd like to go. You name the time, place, and style. From the adventure-driven activity to the off the beaten path endeavors to culinary explorations, a bit of couture, a swirl of world wines or merely attending global events, be it cinematic, sporty, theatrical or corporate, any and all is possible. Just let us know what you're looking for. We'll start planning and you can start packing. WAT-ever you want!

Since we launched WAT, we have had an overwhelming response and interest in Custom Travel. So much so, we're launching another site: Lofty Traveler. This site will reflect me as a travel writer and photographer. More importantly, it will be rich in travel inspiration and information. There will be plenty of travel and lifestyle content; photos, videos, and stories to entice and enlighten. Remember, anything on offer at WAT can be booked privately. If you don't see something, say something as we can book WAT-ever you want, wherever you want.
Aside from being the Adventuress in Chief of WAT, I am a Travel Advisor with Elite Travel International, powered by Cadence, a VIRTUOSO travel agency. IATA# 05515171.
