With 30 years of travel industry experience, as well as being an avid traveller, she understands what makes the ultimate trip.
“I’ve always loved exploring the world and experiencing new cultures firsthand through travel. To me travelling is a privilege. It isn’t about a check mark on a bucket list, but rather about embracing cultural differences, meeting new friends, interacting with locals, and exploring the nooks and crannies that few ever visit. It’s about getting off the beaten path, giving back to communities, trying new things, and sometimes stepping outside the comfort zone. The extraordinary travel experiences I have encountered over the past 30 year have forever changed the way I look at the world. It brings me great joy to share my travel experiences and unleash the magic of each destination with my clients by offering tailor-made small group tours for women. I am forever grateful for enriching the lives of women through travel.” – Bonnie Hinschberger
