“Explore the world – allow me to take you there – dig into my experience, contacts, and passion.”
– Uly Silkey

A key to her success is through being a diligent listener to hone in on her clients’ wants and goals, and understanding how those preferences evolve as their lives change.

She also recognizes that personal touches often are what matter most. “One family I work with loves exploring on foot, so I bring their trip to life by stocking their rooms with maps and suggestions of where to go to,” she says.

Known for

Uly is able to make the planning of a journey exciting and rewarding by bringing to life the experience awaiting you. She has amazing insight, an immense passion for travel, and an ability to imagine and clearly communicate what to expect for each part of the trip during the creation process.

Travel trends to watch

There are several interesting travel trends that Uly suggests enjoying, including:

  • Cultural heritage journeys in places to experience the nomadic horse culture Mongolia Genghis Khan and his ancestors left behind.
  • River cruises, not only Europe, but think about Asia too – it’s really jumping onto the scene and with good reason.
  • Eco Tours that get you up close and personal with the majestic and rare animals the world has to offer – think polar bears and narwhals on an Arctic adventure or afternoon tea with the grizzly bears on the deck of your resort in northern British Columbia.

A message from Uly…

I’ve been very fortunate in my life and career to be able to travel the world and experience different cultures. Equally as thrilling is sharing of experiences, telling friends and families of all the people we have met, cultures engaged with, and local food and wine tried.

All travels are individually tailored to the personality and needs of each client – YOU.

Lasting and mutually beneficial relationships with vendors and suppliers are to my clients – YOUR – benefit.

Excellent global vendor relationship management and negotiation of goods and services are at hand to use for the advantage of my clients – YOUR – comfort.

I very much look forward to working with you.

“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or heard, but must be felt with the heart.”
