Why Florence Owns My Heart

The first time I ever visited Florence, I was a young married woman, no kids yet, and no pre-conceived notion of what I would find.  I used a travel advisor (at the time they were always and only referred to as “travel agents”) who booked us into a hotel on the Oltrarno (other side of…

What Our Clients Say About Us

“I wanted to get away from the holiday season of shopping malls and plastic Santas – the charming and authentic Christmas markets of Prague and Rothenberg were just what I was looking for. I had a great visit to Europe when it was least crowded and came home filled with the Christmas spirit!”

Richard J. – Christmas Markets Cruise

“On The Map Travel took all the interests of our women’s group – food, wine, art and adventure – and combined them to create a trip to Chile that was great fun from beginning to end.”

Elizabeth M. – Wine, Poetry & Patagonia

"On the Map Travel planned my family’s trips to Croatia, Portugal, and Alaska, and hosted my small-group trips to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Morocco, and Argentina. They are the only travel operator I use because of their infinite knowledge of travel (including the most obscure destinations), their attention to details ensuring the most comfortable and memorable experiences.

"When you use On the Map Travel, you are guaranteed the trip of a lifetime!"

 Tony and Carol D. - Frequent Travelers

"My husband and I just returned from a fabulous trip to the Med which we booked with expert guidance from On The Map Travel. They assisted us previously with a trip to Argentina and another to South Africa and again came through with great recommendations and flawless execution.

"We received upgrades at the hotels we stayed as well as on the Seabourn cruise. We also relied our their services for a private guide in Barcelona, which really a must to appreciate the Gaudi architecture and city's history.

"We highly endorse On The Map Travel as a trusted, reliable source for your travel needs."

Karine and Joe G. – Frequent Travelers

"An after hours visit to the Vatican? A private gelato making lesson in Florence’s most famous gelato shop? Guides who are professors and art historians? Wow! It was all fabulous and something we could never have arranged by ourselves."
Peter S. and Family • Italy

 We recently took our 3 kids, their spouses, and our 8 grandchildren (ages 5-17) on a 7 day Alaska Cruise that Anne arranged.  It was perfect!  Anne selected the right ship on the right cruise line—it wasn’t too big, yet there were lots of activities and amenities to keep everyone happy.  A huge plus was that Anne arranged for our cabins so they were all adjacent to one another with a shared veranda—we really appreciated this because it kept us together as a group and made it a breeze to coordinate with each other.  This was the trip of a lifetime and it couldn’t have been better.  Bravo, Anne!!!!

Evy K. - Frequent Cruise Client

We took our whole family on a vacation to London and Paris this spring and put ourselves in the hands of On The Map Travel. With a 23 year old and two 9 year olds, we knew it would be a challenge to satisfy everybody, but the team at On The Map orchestrated the trip of a lifetime! From the remarkable hand-picked local guides to the fascinating, well-paced and custom-tailored itinerary, ranging from falconry at Leeds Castle, an unforgettable private after-hours tour of the Tower of London, a private escort through the Louvre, to a chocolate tasting at the finest Parisian shops - On The Map made our experiences abroad magical and effortless! We can’t wait to work with On the Map again to design our next global experience!
