More About Custom Travel

Group Travel & Tours

We have extensive experience designing custom group journeys of all shapes and sizes. Whether your travel companions share similar interests such as art, food and wine, or just share a family reunion, we can put together a trip not to be forgotten. We manage group vacations of every type and size; all you need is as few as 8 individual travelers to make a group and start earning group discounts.

We can also set you up on one of our pre-planned group tours, which change monthly – we specially curate multiple tours throughout the year that are open to the public. You can join on your own or with friends and family. View our Group Tours Page to see our upcoming group tours.

Thank you for helping us make incredible memories

“I can't say enough great things about Avant-Garde Travel. I, my husband, his two brothers and their wives went to Italy for the first time and we booked our vacation with Avant-Garde Travel. This was one of the best planned and prepared vacations we have ever been on. Every detail of the travel was handled by Avant-Garde Travel and we could not be more happy. There is only one word to describe our experience with Avant-Garde Travel - "Perfection."”

The most unforgettable trip I've ever had

“Aimee and Minerva at Avant-Garde Travel are truly amazing partners to have while planning any major trip. Aimee and Minnie helped my husband and I plan our dream wedding on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. It was the most unforgettable trip I've ever had. Aimee and Minnie found the MOST. AMAZING. VILLA. EVER. Aimee and Minnie went above and beyond our wildest expectations for this trip and we couldn't be more grateful for their contribution to our big day! We would recommend Avant-Garde to anyone looking to take an awesome trip!”

I wish she could plan my day to day life

“Aimee is UHMAZING!! We got married on a cruise ship and she made me a cute flyer to send to family and friends to get them to go. She blocked rooms off for our guests. She took care of our flight to FL, hotels, transportation to the docks and everything associated with the cruise. She even saved our butts when we forgot to print luggage tickets and resent them for us. We are using her for every trip we take. I wish she could plan my day to day life.”

A trusted partner to brainstorm honeymoon ideas

“From the very first interaction to the day of departure they were on-point, organized, and an extension of our trip. We wanted a trusted partner to brainstorm honeymoon ideas based off of our needs and they provided multiple options for us to review. There were many personal touch-points prior to departure to made sure we had what we needed, and any last-minute requests were addressed. The trip itself exceeded our expectations and we have already reached out to the Avant-Gerde Travel team with two more trips. Thank you for everything!!!”

Above and beyond what we would have found ourself!

“Aimee and staff put together an amazing wedding trip to Italy. The wedding venue was PERFECT and the wedding itself was like a fairytail. All of the trip info/tickets/direction all at your fingertips. We received timely responses to our e-mails or messages. The accomodations she provided were above and beyond what we would have found ourself. You made it so very, very personal and special, Just cannot thank Aimee and team enough.”
