Incredible trip to New England for my wife and me

Brownell planned an incredible trip to New England for my wife and me. Brownell’s level of professionalism and deep knowledge of the destination was extremely impressive. When something came up a week before the trip, we had to postpone our departure by a day. Our Coordinator quickly made the adjustments to the itinerary without a hitch, avoiding what would have been a stressful situation had we booked on our own. Brownell is a Four Seasons Preferred Partner and in the Virtuoso network, so we had upgrades and added amenities throughout the trip and were treated like VIPs.

The view from our upgraded room at the Four Seasons in Boston was amazing, overlooking Boston Common and the Public Garden. The White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport was beyond our expectations, with another upgrade, a spa experience and an unbelievable dinner.

Each Maine hotel had its own ambiance, from the rustic structure of the White Barn Inn to a wide-angle view of the ocean at the Inn by the Sea. The Inn at Sunrise Point was an especially inviting place with wonderful breakfasts served by the owner and cozy, warm accommodations in a cottage with a private deck looking out on beautiful West Penobscot Bay.

Our Brownell Travel Coordinator did a fantastic job for us, and we can’t wait for Brownell to plan our next adventure!

Brownell planned a special birthday trip and booked a hotel for a business trip, and my Advisor took each trip to the next level. Brownell is one of the most professional companies I have ever worked with, and their knowledge and industry relationships cannot be beat. Highlights from my birthday trip in Chicago include an upgraded room at The Peninsula and a chilled bottle of champagne and cake waiting when I arrived. When I returned to Chicago for business a few month later, I didn't expect much from a simple hotel booking, but I was wrong. Brownell is a Four Seasons Preferred Partner, and I was upgraded to a gorgeous 1-bedroom suite with a sweeping view of Lake Michigan. Plus in both hotels I had access to Virtuoso amenities and was treated like a VIP! If you need a hotel booking or are planning a big trip, Brownell is the agency to use!

Just booked a honeymoon through Brownell and it was such a wonderful experience. Beth Flowers helped us figure out what would be the best honeymoon FOR US and was a joy to work with! She knew of all the best places and all the best deals.

        About Elite Luxury Kenya

        Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

        Who Travels With Them?

        Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

        Where Do They Operate?

        Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

        Why Travel With Them?

        Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

        Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
