Going on a family trip can be one of the most rewarding ways to travel — but also the most exhausting. That’s why people turn to family-travel specialists like Julie Danziger, whose understanding of the particular needs inherent in multigenerational travel takes the stress out of planning. As an avid traveler and parent of three children, she knows what she’s doing (and her kids have happily followed her around the globe as she’s sought out new family-oriented properties, partners, and experiences).
Danziger pays close attention to industry trends and client interests, developing itinerary options around experiential family travel — a museum scavenger hunt, for example, or a cycling city tour — and social responsibility, like suggesting volunteer opportunities in local communities. Another family-vacation trend, adventure travel, has grown into a broader secondary specialty; she can plan fitness- or wellness-oriented itineraries that incorporate trekking, cycling, clean eating, and more.
"Julie is amazing to work with. She listens to our ideas and concerns, and comes up with the absolute best overall plans for our trip. She is super knowledgeable — an expert in her field. She sets us up with the best dining spots, nightlife, culture, tours, and the best hotel to fit our needs! Our trips are always amazing, right down to the smallest detail, like having our favorite cocktails waiting for us in our room after a long day of touring. If any problems arise (which can happen in foreign cities!) she is quick to respond and help fix the issue. I use Julie to book and plan all our trips, and have recommended her to friends and family. Next up — she’s planning my brother’s honeymoon!" - Sonja Cabasso
