We approach your itinerary as an opportunity for creativity, curating thoughtful travel experiences designed from the ground up to fit your unique needs and deliver an unforgettable experience.  

What sets Vista Escapes apart?

At Vista Escapes, we plan your trip as if it were our own, approaching it from a traveler's perspective rather than that of a travel advisor. We capture our own pictures and videos for our website and social media, all taken in the same places we recommend for your trip. We evaluate our suppliers through the eyes of a traveler and do not accept free or discounted trips. In fact, during our research trips, we do not disclose our role as travel advisors to the suppliers to ensure we experience the authentic tour.


The Vista Escapes difference

Every itinerary we create is distinct and as unique as the client, featuring personalized details and exclusive experiences you won't find on generic tours. You can rest assured that your investment is made with a travel agency that possesses on-the-ground experience, insider connections, and isn't influenced by sales goals or free trips.


Corporate Background

Drew has an extensive corporate finance background at top fortune multi-national companies, where he was responsible for financial presentations the CEO and CFO would deliver to the Board of Directors, Drew’s corporate experience aligns well with travel planning for discerning travelers.


On the Ground Experience

Empowering Local Communities

We have partnered with six charities that we think are doing the most good aligned with our core values in the communities we visit. We support charities focused on clean drinking water, ocean cleanup, anti-poaching, and providing necessary medical services.

"I have always enjoyed planning my own vacations but Spain has been at the top of my bucket list for years and the thought of planning it was overwhelming. Working with Drew took all of that pressure off. I had never worked with a travel agent before and came into the process a bit cautious but Drew took the time to understand to how we travel and build a trip that feels like us."

"I have used Vista Escapes for two different trips: Europe (Italy, Germany, Switzerland) and Japan. Both interactions with Drew have been a great experience. He is thorough in his planning and questioning process to gather the necessary information to customize your trip experience. He is extremely knowledgeable on culinary experiences and hotel location optimization. I have and will continue to recommend Vista Escapes to anyone I know looking to book a travel experience that is thoughtful, immersive, and stress free."

"When my husband and I decided to visit Italy, I knew Drew's expertise would far exceed our expectations. His travel knowledge and experience are topnotch. We truly appreciated his on-the-ground expertise. He had personally visited most of the hotels and restaurants we dined at. His attention to detail assured me that the excursions he booked for us would be fantastic. I look forward to using Vista Escapes for our 15th anniversary!"
