Our custom itineraries cut right to the heart of what and how you yearn to discover, striking the perfect balance between immersive activities & free time to wander. An MMarkham-designed journey gives you the space to create profound memories with your loved ones and deep connections to a place that’s called you to explore. Time spent in joyful discovery is time never wasted—let us show you all that you can discover.
Your perfect trip begins with you. That’s why we take a highly customized approach to itinerary design, getting to know our clients well so we can craft a travel experience that is truly singular.
Every element of your trip will align with what you want to see and how you want to explore, from the style of your accommodations to the pace of the itinerary. We’ll also ensure we pair you with the right type of travel for the experience that you’re after—whether that’s a small-group tour, luxury river cruise, or self-directed journey.
Our customized planning specialties include:
This isn’t just a vacation—it’s a journey. What’s the difference? A genuine journey brims over with thrilling discovery, authentic connections, and surprises around every corner. Our access to best-of-the-best tour operators and guides get you nothing less than a journey to remember.
Picture: eye-opening walking tours, scrumptious cooking classes, private yacht excursions, and after-hours museum visits. Even our more “rest and reset” vacations blend in some vibrant cultural exploration—think taking a break from your Cabo resort to dive into some hidden cenotes.
