Project Description

Trips Designed for You

Design Your Destinations is the personal travel concierge for jet setting entrepreneurs and other wanderlusters. We’re changing the way you travel entirely by designing personalized travel experiences tailored exclusively to you and your travel dreams.

You are a traveler, not a tourist. We know you can book a cheap hotel room or a generic bus tour at the touch of a button. But you’ve built your life and your business around personalization and experiences. We get that and design travel experiences customized to you and your unique travel desires. We want to help you make your travel dreams a reality.

We understand that you work hard and you want to play hard, too. But you don’t have time to plan the trip of your dreams. Good News: We do. We passionately want to help you achieve the balance part of your work – life balance goals.

Travel by Interest.

From art and architectural wonders to fashion and food; whether you’re inspired by sinking your toes into white sandy beaches or recharge by hiking and biking through nature, we have a trip perfect for your personality.

 We’ve Planned Past Trips For:

♦ The Adventurer (For the off-the-grid explorer)

♦ The Creative (For the art, fashion & architecture lover)

♦ The Retreatist (For luxury relaxation, from the spa to the beach)

♦ The History Buff (For those interested in ancient ruins and archaeological treasures)

♦ The Foodie (For those desiring unique gastronomic and culinary experiences)

♦ The Sports Enthusiast (For those wanting to experience the world’s most sought out sporting activities)

Why DYD?

  • Comprehensive Welcome Process – We start by getting to know you, your personality and interests. You’ll complete a custom questionnaire and create a travel dreams board, so that we see what you see and can tailor a trip to match. And if you’re not sure about something, your personal travel concierge is there to help you gain clarity on what you truly desire to experience on your travels, so you can jet off on a one of a kind trip designed exclusively for YOU.
  • Research and Planning Done for You We’ll take everything we’ve learned about you from the welcome process and we’ll do extensive research for your trip. We’ll plan a trip tailored to your travel dreams, personality, interests, and trip timeline.
  • In Depth Vacation Consultation  This is the fun part! During your in depth vacation consultation, we’ll go over your trip details and what makes it uniquely designed to you and your travel wishes.
  • Custom Itinerary Your personal travel concierge will seamlessly map out your entire trip on an interactive custom itinerary. You’ll get access to a beautiful, simple mobile app for viewing your itinerary and the best part, it’s accessible where ever you roam in offline-mode. All of your activity details, directions, times, and other information for your trip are all displayed within your interactive custom itinerary. (You’ll also be emailed a beautiful PDF copy of your itinerary if you desire to print it).
  • Memories to Last a Lifetime Set off on your custom designed trip and experience more than a chance to get away. Meet new people, experience new and exciting things, gain a different perspective of life and the world, renew your spirit, and create incredible memories that will last a lifetime!

“I was so impressed with our Kelly’s ability to customize our trip. She really took the time to get to know us so she could plan the perfect vacation. I never felt like we were going on the same “tourist trap” type of excursions, rather she guided us to those “off the beaten path” spots that I so adore. And she was very detailed…even including maps, phone numbers, hours of operation, names of people to contact while abroad, etc. She thought of everything and it didn’t go unnoticed! Thank you again Kelly for creating a dream vacation! We’d literally have been lost without you! ”

“I wanted to thank you for meeting with me and sharing your insight on such an important week in my life. Your ideas and thought provoking questions allowed me to pleasantly surprise my wife on our Honeymoon in St. Maarten. I was able to map out more meaningful activities, while sticking to our budget. Thank you Kelly.”

“Dear Kelly,
When I requested your advice for our trip to Paris I was so impressed with both your knowledge of places to visit and also the process involved in the planning of the trip. It is quite evident that you are an exceptional researcher and meticulous in your attention to detail. Your explanations and information gave me the confidence to explore additional sites. One tour that you recommended was the Seine River Cruise and Paris illuminations tour. A riverboat takes you past many famous Paris sights. It was so interesting to see the Parisians who came to the riverbanks to enjoy the evening and socialize. It was quite a spectacular at night.”
