3. Value for the Money | TRAVEL À LA CARTE clients have access to the same (and often better) pricing than available online, and can secure VIP benefits, amenities, access, and extras that you can’t get on your own. To quote Warren Buffet, “Price is what you pay; value is what you get.”
4. VIP | TRAVEL À LA CARTE is privy to exclusive events, private tours and many other extras. Can you imagine private after-hours opera performance at the Sistine Chapel or what about a personal professional photography lesson during an expedition to see the northern lights.
