Recognized by National Geographic Traveler as one of the top 80 travel agents in North America, and accredited by Tourism Australia as an "Aussie Expert", Derrick has come a long way from Namibia in southern Africa, where he grew up. He's lived in five countries on four continents and lost count of places he’s visited.
Derrick understands that everyone has a different idea of the perfect vacation, so he tailors your trip to your dreams, whether it’s a walking tour of Provence or Peru, a driving tour of Italy or Australia, or cooking lessons in Vietnam or Vienna. He goes beyond the usual level of service, and relishes setting up details like dinner reservations in Istanbul, tee-times in Thailand and once even arranged for a birthday cake to be delivered to a camel-safari encampment in the middle of the desert in Rajasthan. He’s a wizard at finding good hotels all over the globe, and at providing out-of-the-ordinary concierge-style service.
