Hike across glaciers in Iceland. Scale castle turrets in Tuscany. Cycle alongside floating river markets in Vietnam.
It’s all closer than you think.
Through my one-on-one trip planning services, I make action-packed vacations possible for travelers ready to dive deep.
Here’s the thing about “going off the beaten path,” exploring “under-the-radar” destinations, or finding travel’s “hidden gems”: You really have to know where to look (or else they wouldn’t be “hidden,” would they?).
My clients crave unusual and offbeat experiences that are a little—or sometimes a lot—outside the tourist mainstream. They rely on me to lead them there. When I travel, I’m always forging boots-on-the-ground relationships within the industry, from hotel GMs to local guides. My industry connections lead to new opportunities, which I then pass on to you, opening doors you didn’t even know existed.
A perfect-fit trip starts with one thing: listening. My job as your travel advisor is to ask the right questions, intuit what you’re saying between the lines, and then deliver a travel experience tailored to you.
It’s travel planning with a human touch (how novel these days!). And this human has ventured far and wide to gather first-hand intel on immersive journeys that would suit every type of traveler. I provide inventive suggestions that my clients—or Google!—wouldn’t have thought of on their own, but that are guaranteed to make a trip feel uniquely yours.

Thank you for planning such a wonderful trip to Turkey and Greece for our family. Not a day goes by that I do not reflect on some aspect of that trip, and the wonderful family experience that we had because of your very professional planning and recommendations. I have traveled the world and have had many other family trips. Thanks to you, this one was the best organized, which ultimately enabled us to have such a wonderful experience. Please list me among your enthusiastic supporters and most appreciative clients.
What a spectacular trip that exceeded my expectations! Not only was Iceland an amazing country to visit, but having such great planning with every detail thought through so carefully from accommodations to food to sights, etc. Thank you Beth Hill/ Mangata Travel!!
We had such an incredible family vacation, we are sad it’s over already! Thank you so much for all your hard work with all of our details and accommodations. You always go the extra mile to make our vacations outstanding! We can’t thank you enough. The hotels, tour guides and transportation were all perfect. It was so seamless and extremely helpful to have this all set up for us. Traveling internationally with a group of 10 of all different ages can be daunting, but having everything in place really eased our travel stress. We can’t recommend Mangata Travel enough to our friends. Thanks Beth!!
Trip was PERFECTION! We couldn’t stop talking about how grateful we are for you! Loved every part of it! Thank you thank you thank you! We’re going to be reaching out for all of our future travel. You’re the best!
Once you take care of the Trip Design fee, I’ll begin doing just that, designing your trip based on what you shared during our consult. You’ll receive your trip proposal to review and provide feedback on, then I’ll tweak it to your liking. With your itinerary in place, I’ll get everything booked and arranged for you.
After you complete the Trip Inquiry Form, we’ll arrange your complimentary consultation call. This call is all about YOU—your vacation vision & goals, travel style, budget and time frame, preferred pace, who’s coming with you, and more. Digging deep together is what will allow me to create a customized plan for you.
I’ll make sure you’re prepped for your trip with a pre-departure consult, travel checklist, destination info, and all my best tips. You’ll receive your full itinerary via mobile app for access at your fingertips. Once you leave, we’ll stay connected during your trip to ensure everything is going according to plan — or better!
Have you already planned your vacation—but you’re seeking a second set of (expert) eyes?

Bring all your questions, and I’ll bring my best ideas on how you can create a more seamless travel experience with major wow-factor moments.
