The London-based expert is known for putting together itineraries that deliver the ‘wow’ factor. One day, you might get a private, pre-opening tour of Edinburgh Castle; the next, you might score VIP access to the Eiffel Tower. Davidson spends half her time on the road, checking out new hotels, making connections, and scouting out up-and-coming destinations — like northern Scotland, where her clients are increasingly requested road-trips along The North Coast 500, a 516-mile scenic route that starts and ends at Inverness Castle. If a Parisian sojourn is high on your list, Davidson — who traveled to the City of Light a whopping 14 times in 2018 — can hook you up with stays at luxury hotels like Le Bristol and special experiences at attractions like the Louvre and the iconic French hat shop, Laulhère.
"Camilla is different from other travel agents because of the personalized experiences she provides. Her top priority is to build a relationship with her clients, including tweens, teens, and toddlers to get a full understanding of who will be part of the day and what activities appeal to the entire group. Camilla creates adventures that are up-close and personal. In London, most people watch the changing of the guards from behind the fence, while we stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the guards presenting colors. Tourists walked through the Churchill War Rooms with their headphones peering through the glass at us IN each room where Churchill sat. Not only were we granted entry to the Key Ceremony at the Tower of London, but we had the inside scoop about where to be and what to do from our Beefeater guide inside the gates. Camilla has consistently paired us with extremely knowledgeable guides that filled our days with fun and willingly changed plans on the fly when we were having a particularly good time and didn’t want to move on." - Melissa Haskell
