Uly Silkey

Luxury Travel Advisor

Known for

Living by the motto of ‘explore, try new things, and dive deep’, she has had many profound experiences throughout the world and offers this unique insight to her clients. This belief has even led her to circumnavigate the world not once but twice and to spend six months in Southern Africa (just to specify one such area).

A key to her success is through being a diligent listener to home 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.

Trend to Watch

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.

Earl Davis

Luxury Travel Advisor

Known for

Creating that special trip by not only arranging the basic components of air, hotels, cruises, etc, but also concentrating on the smallest of details, whether that be arranging a private picnic on a quiet beach while most shipboard fellow travelers are taking a generic group tour, a back street Vespa tour of the local food stalls of Saigon or a visit to the Sistine Chapel with very few other visitors present. The importance of those small details can make any trip, from three weeks visiting the capitals of Europe, a beach vacation in Hawaii, a first-time trip to SE Asia or a 100 day round-the-world cruise, the trip of a lifetime rather than a similar version of what everyone else is doing while traveling.

Trend to Watch

SE Asia and India as an alternative to the often visited capitals of Europe. Small boat cruising on the rivers of continental Europe that provide for an in-depth local experience rather than the two week ocean sailings that stop for just a few hours at major ports. Small group tours of friends and/or family with shared interests, whether that be bicycling in Vietnam, hiking in the Alps or chartering a boat to visit small ports in the Aegean Sea.
