My Background

Growing up in an airline family I developed an early passion for travel. We always said “don’t get lost, get local!” because connecting with locals and getting immersed in the culture makes it a truly extraordinary vacation. My background gives me some unique advantages such as “insider” information when working with airlines on your behalf.

I am a credentialed specialist for the South Pacific and Hawaii, having traveled extensively in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and The Islands of Hawaii. My expertise also includes creating independent tours through Europe, Asia and the U.S. I really enjoy planning amazing trips for clients using my worldwide connections and Virtuoso exclusive partnerships. My goal is to design “wow”-worthy, memorable experiences and to exceed your expectations on every trip!

Nathan did a fantastic job booking our recent complex trip to Croatia. I was extremely impressed and have recommended him to other family members. I basically told him what I wanted and within a couple of hours the entire itinerary was on my computer. I will definitely ask for his services again.

My boys and I had the best trip ever! Nathan planned a great trip to Hawaii for myself and boys! It was our first time there and Nathan gave us multiple choices on places to go. Nathan was easy to work with and was quick to respond to any questions about the trip or difference in price if we added more on to the trip. I will be coming back to him for future travel plans!

Nathan planned a four day get away for my daughter and myself to Newport. It was a perfect mother/daughter get away, better than hoped. He was helpful down to the detail, including recommending we Uber rather than take the town car to get into the city from the train station as it cost a tenth of the price. Knows when spending money buys the experience, and when it doesn't. Unusual and welcome in my book!

As folks who travel very frequently, having Nathan as an adviser is a boon. He helps us with a mix of domestic and international flights (using both air miles and not), hotel arrangements and transfers. He is fast, professional and incredibly personable. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Nathan planned two Europe trips that took place 2 months apart. We were traveling both times with our college age daughter who was studying abroad. The first trip was to Ireland/London and the second to Paris/Bordeaux/London. Nathan handled everything from private airport transfers, private drivers/guides, wine tasting appointments in Bordeaux, hotel reservations, and dining reservations. His organization and expertise made for a stress-free trip! Everything went smoothly and having him load all of our travel information in the convenient mobile app made traveling even easier. I would highly recommend Nathan for planning a small weekend to an overseas lengthy vacation. His knowledge, expertise and friendly demeanor made for two incredible trips!!

It is always a pleasure working with Nathan whatever your travel needs are. Whether you need to book a month long European vacation with the whole family, or a 2 night stay downtown, he's got you covered! Don't bother trying to book things yourself through the online sites, he can take the hassle out of all of it, typically beat the rates and still get you great upgrades like Virtuoso Amenities. I'm sold!

Stress-free travelling

If you want a stress-free travel experience with plenty of wonderful experiences, go to Nathan Cripps. With a minimum of fuss, he finds and fulfills your smallest (and biggest) desires. And his plans and recommendations always seem to work out perfectly. This Tauck Rhein riverboat trip with a stay beforehand at the Dolder Grand in Zurich was right on target all the way. We didn't have to worry about how we would get from the airport to the hotel, from the hotel to the riverboat, or anywhere else. Everything was handled well and in a timely fashion. We felt we were treated like royalty during the entire trip, something I could get a little too used to. Thanks, Nathan, for another amazing trip.

Euro-Asia Trip

During the summer of 2017 our family of 4 traveled to Central Asia and Europe. We had chosen many places to visit and Nathan guided us providing his expertise and experience. He gave us practical and realistic suggestions of where to go and how to follow the best route to accomplish what we wanted to achieve. Without his expertise it would have been all work and no play but because of his expertise with places to stay, transportation transfers, etc. Everything was arranged for us to the finest detail. We loved it! We especially appreciated all the tours he arranged for us, private and as a group. They were ALL excellent! Nathan is a great travel adviser who I continue to work with for our future vacations.

Nathan was awesome to work with. I felt like he really understood me as a client. He got that I like to 'ball on a budget' as the kids say and also did whatever he could to ensure that my expectations were met. He made a special note for the hotel in my booking regarding my preferred room location which I feel helped me get what I was looking for. His work didn't end as soon as my vacation was over, as he made sure to check in with me to see how things went and offered to get involved when I had an issue with the hotel and an error they made. I would definitely recommend Nathan to anyone looking to have a Stellar vacation!

Nathan arranged our honeymoon in Playa Del Carmen. It was so much easier than trying to find a place to go, arrange travel, figure out what to do, etc. He showed us a couple great options, we picked one and that was it. He found us a place that we wouldn't have found on our own, and it was beautiful. So easy, and he saved us so much money vs. what they were advertising if we'd booked direct.
