Travel``The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.``
Isn’t it nice to know that you’re partnering with real people who’ve “been there – done that” instead of wasting hours wading through online reviews from strangers? Our design experts at Foray have visited over 60 countries, and attended and planned countless one of a kind events and experiences from which we continue to draw inspiration. We also maintain a “little black book” of contacts worldwide who we can call upon at any time for localized expertise.
This means that when you ask us about places, there’s a chance that we’ve actually walked the trails, shopped the markets, explored the attractions and slept in the beds that we recommend – or we know someone who has. In many cases, we have an established relationship with the hotel owners and tour guides that we incorporate into your personalized travel trip. Why not make use of our combined travel knowledge and experience to make sure you include all the things you want to do (and a few more we may suggest)?
These are some of the types of trips that we design:
- Family vacations
- Wellness trips
- Adventure travel
- Round-the-world trips
We listen carefully to what you want, what you like and what your purpose is for your customized trip. And if you don’t quite know what you’re after, we have a knack for asking just the right questions to help choose the where, when and what for your next Big Adventure. Whether your goal is to relax and decompress, climb Kilamanjaro, or see the pyramids, we’re here to help you accomplish it!

Our custom travel planning process means that no two itineraries are ever the same. Like every successful relationship, we always begin with a chat to discover what makes you tick. Are you on a mission to experience the latest Michelin starred restaurants or do you prefer the local hole-in-the-wall – or both? Is a luxury villa with stunning views your raison d’être or do you hanker for a boutique hotel in the heart of the action? Do you yearn for a nostalgic journey by scenic railway or prefer the feel of the open road? We’ll get to the bottom of all of this the first time that we work together, then save your preferences for future adventures.
Once we get to know you and your travel companions, we’ll start to add in the logistics such as travel dates, destinations, budget and other personal considerations. This is where the fun begins! Within the agreed timeframe, we’ll send you a custom proposal outlining the fantastic trip we’ve created to cater to your wishes.
Once you accept our proposal and pay a deposit for your trip, this is where the fun starts! We get to work on the finer details and incorporate any suggested tweaks to the proposed itinerary. Once finalized, we’ll go ahead and make all of your reservations. Before your departure, you’ll receive all the exciting details you need to enjoy a fabulous customized travel experience.
Bon voyage – and be sure to send us a postcard! We love nothing more than following along on your journey through social media, and you can travel at ease knowing that we’re always accessible for inquiries and assistance along the way. Once you’re back we’ll check in to confirm that everything went smoothly and gather your feedback to ensure that your next trip is nothing short of extraordinary.
Events + Experiences
Organizing an exceptional event involves even more elements beyond booking a personal trip. Vetting and managing vendors and generally dotting all the i’s and crossing the t’s is a huge responsibility that is best left to the professionals so that your main responsibility is to enjoy the event.
As seasoned event-planning experts, we take the stress, worry and uncertainty out of coordinating any important event. We have years of event-planning experience in the San Francisco Bay Area, and further afield including:
- bachelor/bachelorette parties
- birthday parties
- family reunions
- meetings and retreats
It’s our job to research and obsess over every detail, from restaurant reservations to transportation and VIP tours, so that you don’t have to. Our valued network extends to include personal relationships with hotel and venue managers, transport companies, tour operators and concierges worldwide. We carefully handpick every service to ensure that our bespoke event planning service is a cut above the rest. When it comes to events in the San Francisco Bay Area, no one knows it better than us. And when it comes to events further afield, including abroad, many people feel comforted knowing that a trusted event designer is managing all of the local vendors and suppliers.
