Travel + Leisure A-List Travel Agent John Clifford

John Clifford


Clifford has been designing trips for LGBTQ travelers for 35 years, and has developed an extensive network with which to build can’t-believe-it moments. For one client traveling to Brazil, he secured a last-minute suite at the LGBTQ-friendly resort Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa, an insider’s gem, and arranged dinner and excursions with the fashion designer and queer icon Wilbert Das. For foodie clients traveling to Japan, he set up reservations in Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo at the best kaiseki restaurants, street food stalls, and markets. Clifford also arranged a traditional tea ceremony, booked an exclusive dinner hosted by maiko and geisha, and organized front-row tickets to a sold-out sumo tournament.
