Hearing your unique narrative is essential to a successful and meaningful business relationship – let’s explore collectively what your travel expectations essentially are. Listening to your aspirations and ambitions is an integral part of our travel planning process. This is not an order taking business or is it our job to guide you in a direction blindly. It is through a collaborative experience where we will combine your desires and our industry expertise to find a customized travel solution. Feeding off our passion of travel and our experts determination to touch every corner of the globe we will bring you the most engaging and enriching content. We are determined to provide you with the feedback from our travels that will help you determine what is best for you. Again, we take our passion seriously and our passion is enriching travel experiences. This we promise to you our friend, our client, our fellow world citizen. 

What makes Montecito Village Travel advisors unique? We feel it originates with our mere bewilderment of the world. Without an adventurous spirit and a major dose of curiosity how does one find their desire to immerse themselves in other cultures? This astonishment drives us and other global travelers like you to see every inch of the world that our pocketbooks, career obligations and other personal limitations allow us to. It all boils down to the act of engaging with other people, seeing something that takes your breath away or finding yourself in that moment where time stands still and you are completely absorbed by that particular sensation. The sensation of self-awareness is what traveling is able to do to your heart and mind. It is what we here at Montecito Village Travel strive for – utilizing the many aspects travel to enrich our souls.

Visiting a country is not just another notch on our belt – it is beyond that. We are all guilty of occasionally losing sight of why we fell in love with traveling. We as a society are constantly connected to our friends through technology and other interactive means. We do business over the phone and finalize transactions via email. Though the world seems like it is getting smaller – we feel that we are growing even further apart. It is traveling and taking that leap of faith in a remote land that connects you to the human element our core feeds on. The exploratory nature we as humans behold is actually limited with the amount of information that is available online. It is imperative now, more than ever before to seek out a high touch interaction with other individuals from other cultures. That surreal moment where you realize life is more fulfilling with a human connection is life changing.

Humble & honest are two words that define us best. We would never claim to be experts in every corner of the globe and when we come across a request for a destination we haven’t visited ourselves – then we know someone who has. What differentiates us and the standard traveler is our global partnerships and personal relationships we nurture day in and day out.  Our friends across the world are on our speed dials, they are a video conference away and better yet we even see each other in person multiple times a year at industry networking events. It is our transparency with you that provides a foundation of trust and mutual respect. This is why we tell you up front that we are not experts in everything but when questions do arise we will find the answer for you – this we promise you.

  • Thank you so much for planning our fantastic South African adventure!  Thank you for taking such good care of us with the special upgrades and massages, those perks really enhanced our safari experience.  We absolutely loved being on safari!  We couldn’t have traveled like this without your thoughtfulness and expertise.

  • Thank you so much for planning, organizing and facilitating our SE Asia trip.  It certainly stands out from both of us as one, if not the most, incredible travel experiences we have ever had.  It was perfect in every way.

  • Chance had strangely favoured Phileas Fogg, for had not the Carnatic been forced to lie over for repairing her boilers, she would have left on the 6th of November, and the passengers for Japan would have been obliged to await for a week the sailing of the next steamer. Mr. Fogg was, it is true, twenty-four hours behind his time; but this could not seriously imperil the remainder of his tour.

  • We hope to plan something fun ASAP! We couldn't have done it without you!
