Travel + Leisure A List Travel Agent Marc Beale

Marc Beale


Beale provides his clients with unrivaled access to the fascinating country of Colombia, pairing them with resident experts who share similar interests. He has connected a professional photographer with local artists, who accompanied the client to some under-the-radar areas, like the deserts of Guajira, in the country’s northeast, and the colorful Caño Cristales River near La Macarena National Park. Beale often arranges for clients to visit bustling food markets in the company of top chefs and experts in Colombian cuisine. “One of my favorite chefs to work with at the moment is Carmen Angel, the chef behind the hugely popular Carmen restaurants in Medellín and Cartagena,” Beale says. “We have organized for our guests to join her and her husband, Rob Pevitts, on an excursion to a nearby farm to pick Andean lulo fruit and tomate de arbol, before heading back to Carmen to recreate her iconic five-course tasting menu under her watchful eye.”

"My family and I worked with Marc on a two-week vacation to Colombia. He and his partner Boris were incredibly responsive both before and during our vacation. They created an itinerary perfectly suited to our family’s needs. Whether it was top-notch luxury accommodations, arranging the perfect tour or adventure, using the very best guides, or recommending fabulous restaurants, they continuously exceeded our high expectations." — Ed Belz
