My Background

My travel philosophy is that you shouldn’t have to lower your high standards of comfort and luxury to see the world. I believe travel should be magical — from journey to destination — whether traveling for business or pleasure. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have learned the travel industry from all sides — not only as an avid luxury traveler and travel advisor, but also as a former Chief Operating Officer of a five-star boutique hotel. Drawing on this experience, I’m able to use my unique insider industry knowledge to help you secure the very best service and amenities.

I also draw on my diverse multi-cultural background to create unique, authentic experiences. I’m trilingual in English, French and Spanish, as I was educated both in Colombia and in Paris, France, where I earned my master’s degree. I am particularly knowledgeable about Paris, the South of France, Colombia, Mexico and the United States. I’ve also lived and traveled extensively throughout Europe, the US, and Latin America. Being intimately familiar with these regions means I can show clients new experiences they never thought possible.

I specialize in fully understanding my client’s expectations – and then fully exceeding them!

Best advice in Japan - thanks Sebastian!

By: Hotelguru22

Reviewed on: 26 Jul 2016

We didn't want a classic tour package so we asked Sebastian to create a custom itinerary for us. It was genius in every way! We stayed at the new Aman Hotel in Tokyo which is perhaps my new favorite hotel in the world and Sebastian found us an authentic Japanese Inn in Kyoto that was truly outstanding -- a once in a lifetime experience. Every detail was meticulously planned during our 8 days in Japan and we never felt rushed or packaged with a bunch of tourists or tour guides just killing time. Sebastian was also able to get us some excellent deals and extra amenities at the hotels and we were treated like royalty at every stop. Thanks Sebastian for an unforgettable vacation!

Greater choices of hotel and restaurants. He knows our standards and what we are looking for. He also understands that when we want to discover a new country and culture, the first impression is very important. Until next travels, thank you.

Sebastian was great! He was very helpful and informative throughout the entire process. He was knowledgeable about each place we were going and provided consistent feedback and answered all questions. He was patient with us before booking and after continued his loyal help and determination to make our trip a success. The honeymoon was amazing and extremely seamless from take off to landing back home. He was available for questions during the trip and ensured each step of the way went smoothly as planned. 100000% highly recommend and will continue to use in the future. Already have used him to research our next trip and he has already booked another trip for my family.

This is our third or fourth trip planned by and with Sebastian. He is a dedicated professional with vast knowledge and the drive to find out about things he does not personally know. Responsive, attentive, always a pleasure to deal with.
