Bespoke USA, a luxury destination management company (DMC) to the United States, will officially launch this month, offering curated, full-service travel support across all 50 states.
Bespoke USA’s "360-degree approach" to travel coordination includes the creation of tailor-made itineraries that focus on the top destinations and unique experiences within the U.S. This encompasses the booking of luxury hotels, villas and private residences, as well as the arrangement of private tours, entertainment, transportation and more.
"Having spent a decade vetting and partnering with the best destination management companies in amazing countries around the globe, we realized there was a void for the same in our own country, which, in itself, is an incredible destination," says Noel Peterson, one of the founders of Bespoke USA. "We felt we could generate value for travelers to the United States by filling that void and creating a world-class destination management company of our own. Bespoke USA intends to join the ranks with the very best in luxury travel service, complimenting and highlighting the great United States of America."
Some of the travel arrangements that Bespoke USA says it can create include:
- A weekend getaway in New York City that includes staying in penthouse overlooking Central Park, dining at the hottest restaurants and tickets to Broadway shows where travelers enjoy a meet-and-greet with the cast after the show
- Bachelor party weekends in Las Vegas that include tables on stage next to the DJ, premier tickets to shows (such as Cirque Du Soleil, Britney Spears, Boyz II Men; including meet-and-greets with the artists before and/or after the show), a helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon with a picnic and champagne along the way, exotic car racing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and more
- Weekend in Sedona with private guided tours to the Antelope Canyon, a unique experience with a spiritual healer on one of the vortexes of Sedona or a helicopter tour from Sedona to the Grand Canyon
- A trip to Los Angeles that includes "all things entertainment," including a stay at the Bel Air Hotel, Beverly Hills Hotel or Montage Beverly Hills, attending of a movie premier in Hollywood, a private guided hike that takes you up above the Hollywood Sign, a visit to a show taping (such as Dancing with the Stars) and an excursion up the Pacific Coast with lunch at Nobu Malibu
Other trips have might include a Mardi Gras trip to the New Orleans, a spa weekend in Ojai, a trip to Kentucky to experience the Kentucky Derby along with meet and greets with the winning jockey and horse, Yosemite and Yellowstone, private guided tours in Washington DC and more.
Bespoke is "fortunate to have a breadth of experience in luxury travel, given we are a sister company to [luxury travel concierge company] Element Lifestyle," Peterson says, adding the company carefully vets all of its on-the-ground partners.
While Bespoke USA is mainly geared to handle requests from travel advisors sending their foreign travelers to visit the United States, they can also handle very high-end, complicated requests from advisors with clients within the United States. The DMC adds it prefers to arrange FITs, "as it gives us complete control over the client's experiences and plans," they also offer group tours and experiences.
