Epstein is particularly strong at celebratory trips—blowout birthday vacations can include Wimbledon matches, whisky tastings, and coveted reservations at properties like Dromoland Castle. Operating throughout the United Kingdom (including England, Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland) and Ireland, Epstein loves getting clients out into the rugged, misty countryside.

"York and Yorkshire are gaining in popularity," he notes. "The scenic region of rolling hills, step-back-in-time villages, national parks, and the walled city itself come together to offer clients exactly what so many are looking for when traveling to Europe. Yorkshire combines outdoor activities to local artisan visits, to historic ruins and stately homes to majestic scenic beauty. There are lovely city hotels (my favorite features cooking classes) and also grand hotels such as Grantley Hall, which is simply spectacular."

In London, Epstein has been impressed with the opening of Beaverbrook Townhouse, near Sloane Square. "Warm and intimate, the design effortlessly and authentically blends many great styles, and it is truly unlike any other hotel in the capital," he says.

"Jonathan is - without a doubt - the very best travel specialist. I have had the pleasure of working with Jonathan to plan multiple trips over the years, most recently a trip in the fall of 2018 to the UK and Wales. The trip was planned in honor of my husband's 50th birthday and Jonathan made sure that each property that we stayed knew this and thus went out of their way to honor such an important date - what with champagne, chocolates and balloons greeting us at nearly every turn. It was an incredibly thoughtful and meaningful perk. While we were in Wales, Jonathan arranged for us to have an amazing guide for climbing Mt. Snowdon. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and delightful— a truly wonderful experience start to finish—resulting in that climb being the highlight of our trip! Jonathan is meticulous and takes the time to get to know each and every one of his clients so that he and his team can plan an unforgettable trip. His attention to detail is unparalleled, even down to specific dietary requirements. He leaves no stone left unturned. We had an issue with one of the properties that we stayed at, and it occurred on a holiday for Jonathan. It required us needing to find a new property to stay in very short order and within an hour we had a new lodging. And he even made sure that we had a reservation at the top restaurant for that evening. That's just who Jonathan is, he always goes above and beyond. Our final night of our trip, we were staying at my most favorite hotel in the world, one I discovered through Jonathan. We were upgraded to an exceptional room with a magnificent view for that evening, something I'm certain that Jonathan arranged. We don't plan trips without Jonathan and his team, every trip that we have planned with him has been better than the last—which is an extraordinary feat." - Annie C.
