The world is big and full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences and we want to help you see them all!
With a lifetime of travel experience and the globe as our inspiration, we design experiences that create life’s most treasured memories. There is no better legacy than A Well-Traveled Suitcase.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Italy and France 2022
We wanted a trip to southern Italy, Paris and the French wine country. Ann did a wonderful job of asking questions and making recommendations based on the places we wanted to see and the timeline we were working with. We found Ann to be professional, courteous, and a great resource. We would recommend Ann for anyone interested in a wonderful trip.
South Africa and Zimbabwe 2023
Booking our trip through Ann made the trip so easy and amazing! We set our budget, and she pretty much did all the rest!!! From the moment we got off the airplane in Johannesburg, we were at ease knowing that somebody would meet us at the gate and take us through customs and passport control, get our bags and get us to our hotel! Thank you for zero anxiety about traveling to a distant land.... The trip itself was absolutely amazing, having all the transfers, and air travel preset, the tours pre-arranged, and the little extras that we found were left for us along the way made it a trip we will never forget! The hotels that Ann selected for us were all 5 Star and made us feel very much at home every stop we made. The private tours that she selected were exactly what we wanted to do, and were flexible with our time. Thank you Ann for creating a memory that will last a lifetime!!!
Tim and Maria
River Cruise 2022
We have never traveled internationally before except for trips to Mexico. Ann walked us through the entire process and made everything so easy. We did a European Riverboat cruise that included Christmas markets along the Danube. Pre-cruise and post-cruise excursions plus the riverboat cruise itself were all fantastic. On top of everything, we had to navigate COVID and delayed the trip for 2 YEARS! Ann handled everything for us, sent us relevant articles and information and she made excellent recommendations to make our trip even more enjoyable. It was a great experience working with Ann and we will definitely do it again. The next time we travel, we will be contacting her.
Jim and Sue
We just took at trip to Italy. This was our second trip we planned with Ann (and when I say "we"... she did all the planning). My husband and I both have full time jobs that keep us very busy with work travel so when we want to take a break, we definitely trust that Ann will set us up with some thing amazing. She makes it so simple to have a few preliminary calls to discuss destinations, dates and budgets and from there she proposes options and itineraries. I really appreciate that it feels like I didn't have to lift a finger to do any planning. And I'll mention that when on the trip it feels that much more special to have things scheduled and planned for you. In other experiences I have felt anxious or stressed because the planning has fallen to me and I don't get to have the same experiences as others. Ann makes sure the trip and all the little details are perfect. I can't rave enough. Any international trip we take in the future will be planned with Ann.
