John Clifford

Independent Travel Advisor, International Travel Management
My goal is to offer travelers a different type of travel design taking experiential travel to another level, combining meaningful experiences with conservation, customization & style. Luxury means different things to different people, but not always a high price tag but if that's luxury to you, I can pull out all the stops. Travel+Leisure Magazine's A-List has honored me in 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 for Celebration Trips, Hotels & LGBT/Gay Travel, Art lovers, Fashion & Family, and 2004 for The A-List All-Stars as one of The World's Top Travel Advisors. I write for dozens of respected travel publications including AFAR, The BBC, Inc, Man About World, Tatler & Virtuoso Life. I also sat on The Travel Advisory Board of AFAR. From Asia to Europe, my personal contacts, exclusive relationships and unequalled amenities include an intimate knowledge of the world's newest & best Design Hotels as well as off-the-beaten path LGBT/Gay Travel destinations. I look forward to collaborating with you to creatively craft your next global exploration, celebration or far flung adventure.
