My Background

I have worked in the travel industry for 30+ years, my specialties include custom luxury travel for clients that want to experience the best . It's safe to say travel is my passion. Would you like to shop with a chef, or maybe take a cooking class in Tuscany, perhaps heli-skiing.? I love walking the streets of Paris, experiencing all that the city has to offer, recommending special walks viewing local markets the Rue Moufftard , absorbing the smells and the sounds of the city, not forgetting that special ice cream parlor, crepes on the street or a wonderful dinner offering the local specialties.

I have cruised on many of the world's leading cruise lines, including Crystal Cruises. There is something to be said about un-packing only once and watching the world sail by. Having an afternoon cappuccino in the Bistro with a little Parma cheese to a fabulous dinner in Silk Road, life is perfect, whatever the heart desires.

Then off to a special Spa, Canyon Ranch, Miraval, Rancho La Puerta, whether you are looking for a pampering, total workout or a little European enhancement , I just love finding the right spa for my clients.

There are endless possibilities waiting, new destinations to be discovered, the finest hotels which I personally visit, ready to spoil you! Whether you are looking for exotic adventures, safaris, romantic escapes or long weekend get-a-ways I love planning these special experiences. My one on one contact list makes your visits throughout the world very special.

Let's make your dreams come true together.

Having sailed with six different cruise lines over the past twenty years I can say without hesitation that my very best experience has been with Henya at Lartay. She responded to my every question and concern promptly. She also arranged upgrades and cabin credits with the result being a perfect, carefree cruise. Thanks to Henya and Virtuoso for making us feel special!

Henya stepped in somewhat late in the planning process to help us organize several legs of a long trip to Italy and had great location suggestions, demonstrating deep knowledge of the regions we were interested in and practical information that was highly useful. I strongly recommend her.

Henya has been wonderful to work with over the years.

Henya is very knowledgeable and resourceful, trying to find the best experience possible within the parameters that are provided.

Our recent trip to Hawaii included a week in Maui at the Fairmont Kea Lani, and a week in Oahu at the Haekulani. Maui was laid back with all sorts of sites and wonderful dinners. Oahu was a mecca of activity in the best way, with a uniquely amazing stay at the Halekulani, never had we experienced such perfect service. Henya at Largay Travel is an expert, adept in the nuance of travel preferences. One of our very BEST vacations.

Amazing French Polynesia for 30th Anniversary

By: LaurieT


Reviewed on: 04 Nov 2014

We split our 16 day trip with stays at La Taha'a Resort, a catamaran from Tahiti Yacht Charters and The Four Seasons in Bora Bora. We stayed in the over water bungalow #8 at La Taha'a. It had an incredible view and was on the end. Our lagoon tour with Samuel was the best. He took us to a spot to feed/swim with the stingrays and sharks. Afterwards we snorkeled through the Coral Gardens next to the hotel. This was the highlight of our trip. Some of the most beautiful fish we have ever seen. The catamaran picked us up at the hotel and we sailed for 4 days, which was a little too long for me, but staff was great. The last days of the trip were spent at the Four Seasons. By far the best place. We were upgraded to a bungalow with a pool on the end for a little extra per night. They leave nothing to the imagination. They know what you want before you ask for it. Food was great and staff was amazing!

Great Winter Trip

By: B and C


Reviewed on: 14 Feb 2015

Regent took care of us very well, pre and post cruise. The ship's design handled the passengers very well, we never felt crowded at all, though it was twice the size that we were used to. The public areas were very comfortable and the ship very quiet, though the suites were smaller than on a Silversea ship. We found that the restaurants and food were very good and varied, reservations easy to get in all the specialty restaurants. It was good to have "free " trip excursions- they were good and interesting. They could have used more help/service in the pool area, and there was the perennial problem with people reserving loungers in the shade and then not using them for hours on end. The Shangri-la and Intercontinental hotels were very nice. Regent offered an additional excursion in Papeete for those who were checking into a hotel so we were entertained until check in time. It was a very nice touch which we appreciated.

Henya was helpful in booking the A & K Tour as well as the airfare to Down Under. She was particularly of service to me in selecting a pre-tour day at Phillip's Island and a post-tour day in Auckland at Hobbitton and the Glow Worms. She alos booked the hotels for those extra days and I received a Virtuoso discout at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne. She helped make the trip memorable!
