As the premier curator of luxury travel experiences, First in Service offers unrivaled access to create the leisure trip of your dreams. Over the years, we have come to know our clients in different fields, and realized that their desire for hand-crafted, personalized travel extended beyond business—and so our leisure division was born. Today, our clients include executives and high-profile business leaders as well as families, friends and solo travelers who seek an authentic and immersive experience unlike any other.
Adventure Relaxation Connection
Want an off-the-grid adventure? Let us suggest a visit to the Galapagos or a stay in the Arctic. Looking for a relaxing getaway with friends? Islands from the Caribbean to the Maldives offer pristine beaches and lux amenities. From father-son getaways in the Sahara to milestone celebrations in Machu Picchu, we can—and have—planned it all.
Our expert advisors are constantly on-the-go and our relationships with partners across the globe mean exclusive benefits and opportunities that you won’t find elsewhere.
Whether you’re looking for a month-long trip or a weekend away, our luxury travel experts connect you with the cherished moments you crave.
Plan Your Trip
If there’s something you want to do—no matter how wild or seemingly impossible—we will do whatever it takes to make it happen. We’ve opened the popular Egyptian Museum in Cairo early so a mother and daughter could take in the exhibits without the crowds. We brought in a famous Thai boxer to surprise a boxing-aficionado on his honeymoon. And that’s just the beginning.
24/7 Service and Accessibility
Travel doesn’t stop—and neither do we. We’ve stayed up all night to find a flight for a client despite closed airports and grounded planes (and succeeded!), helped clients locate forgotten items in totally different time zones, and so much more. We ensure your travel is going smoothly, no matter where in the world you are—and no matter the issue or the time, you’ll be able to reach us.
Part of our job is getting to know our clients—and those relationships help us create special moments. From surprising a birthday girl with her favorite cake upon arrival at her hotel to whisking a father and son via private helicopter for a stay in the middle of the Sahara Desert, we learn what you love—and incorporate that into the vacation of your dreams.
Hand-Crafted Leisure Travel
Booking a Sold-out Hotel in Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu is, hands down, one of the most amazing places in the world. The sacred Inca city is remote and mystical and was also the place a client chose to celebrate a milestone birthday. The catch: Only one hotel sits atop the mountain, and with just 31 rooms, it is nearly impossible to book. As suspected, it was completely sold out when we started planning the trip six weeks in advance. But we weren’t about to let it go. We knew our client had to witness the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, when the grounds were completely untouched. For weeks, we worked closely with the property’s management. And four weeks before our client was set to leave, we gave the client an early birthday gift: a confirmed room. Our client had the trip of a lifetime—and we were happy to do our part to make that dream come true.
Creating the Perfect Proposal in the Gobi Desert
When a client came to us with the hope to surprise the love of his life with a proposal in Mongolia, her dream destination, we couldn’t wait to start planning. In the Gobi Desert, you’ll find the Flaming Cliffs, whose surreal orange glow make for one of the most ethereal places on earth—especially atop a ledge, at sunset. It’s a moment you want to capture for a lifetime; it’s the perfect moment for a proposal. We knew every detail had to be flawless, as well as remain a secret. And that included the private candlelight dinner waiting for the newly engaged couple at the base of the cliffs. She was speechless—and he was the happiest man in the world.
