As a boutique travel consultancy, the Local Foreigner curates and executes a full range of travel services. From the bespoke to the basic, we guide our clients on everything from planning a destination 50th birthday party or Maldivian honeymoon to booking a flight to Paris or a hotel reservation in Los Angeles.
In an age of hyper-specialization and outsourcing, we manage our lives with a trusted team of expert advisors. From personal finance to emotional well-being, we rely on these experts while we focus on our own specialty. With lifetimes visiting over eighty countries and nearly twenty years of combined industry experience, the Local Foreigner will manage your travel, and serve as an irreplaceable resource as you move through life, satisfying curiosities and creating your own story along the way.
We have slept in the beds, gone from the Michelin-star restaurants to the market stalls, weeded out the lackluster guides, and know the hotel owners and managers personally. We knit relationships around the world and do all the legwork, researching, planning, and finessing the best possible experience for you. For those whose most precious asset is time, we ensure you can spend it enjoying yourself.
We listen very carefully to what you want, to what you’ve liked in the past, to what you’re excited about in the future. We find out how much distinctive flavor you’re after and how much luxury you need. And when you don’t know what you want, we have the experience and the know-how to help guide you.
