About the Owner


Hello! My name is Lisa Matera. It has been my dream as long as I can remember to have a career that is aligned with travel. The next best thing to experiencing my own travel is to hear about a client’s amazing travel experience that we have created through collaborative planning. I want to be a part of the journey to make DREAM trips come true for others. I can help client’s explore destinations with my connections to the world’s best travel providers. And the best part is that every detail can be customized to your interests to satisfy all of your needs.  

I have traveled to over 40 countries and have enjoyed the culture, people, food, wine, sights, sounds and places to stay. Some of my favorite experiences have been exploring my ancestors home country Italy (Matera is a must see - click on my photo above for more information on Matera), hiking through Rwanda's rainforest to come face to face with a family of mountain gorillas, shopping in the souks of Merrakech, staying in gorgeous restored riads within Morocco's ancient city walls, watching the sunset over the sand dunes in the Sahara Desert and sleeping in a luxurious bedouin tent, watching the leopards and large herds of elephants roaming in Sri Lanka's Yala national park, riding camels through the lost city of Petra, scuba diving with huge manta rays and sharks in Maldives, watching the morning mist rise from the Ngorongoro Crater from a five star lodge perched on the edge of the caldera, hiking to Tiger's Nest in mysterious Bhutan, trekking 80km over the Salkantay pass to Machu Picchu, floating in an hot air balloon over Capadoccia  ......and much more!

Insights from our Owner


I have witnessed first hand the power of providing compassionate captial alongside business coaching and mentoring to financially poor entrepreneurs in Rwanda and Latin America. My recent visit to Colombia with Opportunity International further entrenched my belief that microfinance is THE best solution to poverty alleviation and that we, as business leaders, have a great opportunity to invest in change.
