B&R never wanted to be the biggest travel company, just the best. But no man is an island, nor any good travel company a solo operation. So while “the best” may seem a lofty designation, a glance at our roster of trip designers, guides and local partners suggests that what it lacks in modesty, it makes up for in accuracy.
From trip designers like Anne Zakula, whose knowledge of France knows no bounds, to our director of private travel Brad Crockett, whose finger remains firmly on the pulse of the world, no one knows more about getting in deep and up close.
Consummate hosts. Mind readers. Raconteurs. Think teachers, painters, travel writers, architects, botanists and biologists. You should see their CVs. Our guides have lived all over the world, they speak a gazillion languages and, perhaps most importantly, they’re ridiculously fun to be around.
We view the open road as an invitation, be it into a vintner’s cellar, a chef’s kitchen, a hotelier’s suite or—more often than not—a local friend’s life. From world-renowned chefs like Bruce Robertson, to Premier Cru vintners like Le Domaine Aleth Girardin, we pride ourselves on seeking out the best people in the world to reveal a region’s hidden depths.
