We’ve planned trips all over the world

Here are just a few trips we’ve helped our clients plan.

  • An Adventure Through the Land of Fire and Ice
    We planned a 10-day adventure for a family of six to discover the natural wonders of Iceland, where they explored the inside of a volcano, snorkeled in some of the clearest water in the world, and hiked beautiful, expansive glaciers.
  • A Weekend Escape to Toronto
    We helped a busy couple plan a weekend city break in Toronto, with a focus on fine scotches, fancy cocktails and live music.
  • Discovering the Natural Wonders of South America
    We planned a 3-week journey through South America for a family who wanted to experience the beautiful landscapes of South America. Highlights included relaxing on the sandy beaches of Rio, riding a helicopter over the Iguacu Falls, and spending some time at a nature retreat in Patagonia.
  • Living like a Local in Amsterdam
    Our clients wanted to have a local experience, so we found them a charming flat along the canals for their stay while they cafe-crawled through Amsterdam.
  • Enjoying the Highlights of Portugal
    We helped a couple plan a diverse vacation through Portugal, as they explored the essentials of Lisbon, admired the stunning scenery in Madeira, and soaked up the sun along the Algarve Coast.
  • Exploring the Backroads of Spain
    We helped a couple plan a journey through Spain, including the essentials in Madrid and also a hike along the famous Camino trail.
  • Island-Hopping Along the Croatian Coast
    We helped a group of friends plan the ultimate Croatian vacation as they explored the many islands of Croatia on their own private yacht, including a stop at a Peljesac vineyard for a private wine tasting.
  • Road Trip Through Italy's Beautiful, Undiscovered Puglia
    We helped a client plan his honeymoon through Puglia that included exploring local olive oil farms & vineyards and enjoying the regions breathtaking beaches.


The Curated Travel is a fantastic service for those who would like to really experience a new destination from the vantage point of a local (versus those who travel using generic travel guides). The itinerary was perfect – exactly what we were looking for! The other point to note is that the Curated Travel has fantastic customer service. The response time was very quick and the team was willing to really go the extra mile to plan the perfect holiday for my fiance and me.

We had a great experience in planning our trip with The Curated Travel. For me it was all about ease and simplicity. I didn’t have time to do the research on the best places to eat and must see sights but wanted to make sure we hit them all. It was great to find this site that was not only beautiful, but incredibly easy to use and fulfilled everything I was looking for. In 5 quick minutes I had filled out a form with my asks/preferences and in just a few days I had the perfect trip planned–and all it took was 5 mins of my time. I also really appreciated that they took into consideration we were traveling with a 2 year old so they were sure to include family friendly activities and even worked the timing around her nap schedules (amazing!)

I can’t recommend this site enough and look forward to the next trip that I can dream up and Curated Travel can plan!

The Curated Travel provides boutique services which means they can create a totally unique travel experience for a weekend or vacation. They can suggest places that you may have never considered both close to home and abroad. The Curated Travel did an amazing job preparing our itinerary for Iceland this summer. They provided so many options on places to stay, things to see, cars to drive for our family vacation. We saw everything from glaciers, geysers and waterfalls to hiking inside a volcano, cave exploration and snorkeling in a wetsuit. We ended our last day at the thermal spas. We asked for adventure, and they customized our experience and provided many options for our budget… This was a totally memorable vacation experience for me and my family. I love the fact that I did not have to expend all that time and energy and likely could not have put together this caliber of vacation package on my own.

My name is Nicole. I live in New York City, and I love to travel. When visiting new places, I seek to gain the fullest experience by carefully curating itineraries with the most important sights, best restaurants, and activities full of local flavor. From hiking to the top of Huayna Picchu to enjoying drinks cliff-side in Croatia, I have learned a tremendous amount and want to share my experiences with you.

My goal in starting The Curated Travel is to be a resource and provide real information from my experiences to help you get the most out of your travel. I look forward to helping curate your next getaway and hope that the only thing you will have to stress about while you’re traveling is whether to have red or white wine with dinner.
