Peg Aikman

I have been in the travel industry since 1987. Eight years with United Airlines traveling extensively throughout the Pacific and Europe.

My travels have taken me to six of seven continents -missing Antarctica which IS on the bucket list! I have found destinations I have wanted to study in depth and return to again and again. With board of tourism certifications in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Italy, Spain and South Africa coupled with my extensive travel to these destinations I feel especially qualified in planning trips of a lifetime for couples, families and multigenerational groups.

In the last 10 years I have found myself in Italy 26 times, Africa 4, Australia and New Zealand 6 times each as well as twice in Spain and Hawaii! Additionally for reasons unknown to me I've been to Ireland 6 times and have planned many group and independent trips to this destination as well. I have additional certifications in Spa and Golf travel as well as small ship expedition cruising -heaven knows I have plenty of personal experience in these areas of interest !

My personal commitment to ongoing global travel coupled with my board of tourism certifications gives me the ability to provide unique knowledge in trip planning.

My passion is to create life enhancing, life enriching travel experiences for my clients.

Croatia/Montenegro
This spring I traveled with our outstanding Virtuoso On-Site throughout Croatia and in several locations in Montenegro. What interesting and beautiful ‘new’ countries. While only independent since the early 90’s the world-class hotels, dining are right in step with other European destinations. Highly recommended!

Argentina/Patagonia – Chilean Argentinian!
Breathtaking = Patagonia. New Zealand on steroids yet utterly isolated. Sailed the Australis in remote southern Patagonia followed by a stay at the adventurers’ dream of Torre Paine National Park at Explora. Prior to that a few nights in incredible Buenos Aires!! Tango anyone?

Scotland
2015 brought me once again to Scotland. The 144th Open Championship at the home of golf, St. Andrews!
Spectacular venue; insane weather. First Monday finish since 1985! Enjoyed staying in a seafront apartment in Ansthruther. Finished the trip with a Harry Potter tour and overnight at the Caledonian, Edinburgh.

Italy…Again!
It was a joy to take a 16 yr. old on her first trip to the big three: Venice, Florence and Rome. We even took in Aida in Verona! I’ve been to Italy 26 times but I was seeing it thru a new lens this time round. Priceless.

Morocco
Fortunate enough to have traveled here twice in three years. A-m-a-z-i-n-g destination! Exotic, great properties, fascinating culture.

Africa
Diverse,culturally rich, the 'chain of life' for real. So many fantastic properties, amazing food. A spiritual journey!
