Hi, I'm Josh, your future "travel designer." what's a "travel designer" you ask? Well, I'm a real-life actual human being who gets to know you and listens to your ideas to create a CUSTOM VACATION THAT is everything you imagined and more. I don't believe in Groupon's or Pre-packaged itineraries that assume every traveler wants the same thing - because they don't. If you have a trip in mind, i can build it for you. so what do you say? let the designing begin!
How does this all work? It's really simple. First, fill out the "Contact Form" below. Next, we'll set up a video call to go over your trip and get to know each other. If you like what you hear, we'll jump right into the research and planning phase of your vacation. If you go in another direction, that's fine too. You don't pay a dime until you decide I'm the best fit for you.
Josh helped us plan the most amazing trip we will never forget. From the initial planning conversation Josh helped us cater the locations to the types of actives we were interested in and organized all our travel information to have a stress-free vacation. He was able to provide expert recommendations on traveling between islands and the best accommodations and activities. We loved every experience of our trip from a cooking class in the mountains of Crete, private boat trip to beaches, hiking a gorge, relaxing days on the beaches or wine and olive oil tours. Josh didn't skip a beat and ensured transportation and our itinerary was detailed out. He even helped us manage schedule changes while we were traveling.
We can't wait to plan our next trip with Arens Travel Design and have already recommended him to our friends! Thank you, Josh, for everything!
"Where do we even start?"
This company is THE best if you're looking for fun things to do in an adventurous setting! I live in Truckee, CA and had family coming from the Midwest. Josh helped us book a private sailing charter on Lake Tahoe for our whole family to enjoy, golf at a 5-star course and transportation for the group so we could easily get around together throughout the week. All with such ease I didn't even feel like I was planning what essentially was a family reunion. Thank you ATD! I'll be back.

Arens Travel Design is the absolute best! ATD helped us book our honeymoon to Maui and didn’t miss a single detail. ATD helped us plan everything from our flights to our accommodations to all of the fun activities including but not limited to snorkeling, a beautiful sunset dinner cruise, hiking, wine tasting and more! ATD is extremely responsive and incredibly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend using Arens Travel Design for any of your travel needs!

We had a dream of taking a family road trip to the ocean, and Arens Travel Design made our dream vacation a reality! Josh took the stress out of planning a vacation in the midst of a pandemic by planning and booking every element of our trip, including the fastest driving routes, great hotels for our overnight stops, and an amazing family-friendly rental property with pool and beach access in Hilton Head Island. Josh is professional, responsive, and very easy to work with, which is why we recommend Arens Travel Design to anyone looking for assistance in planning a trip. We loved every minute of playing in the sand, swimming in the waves, enjoying wildlife from our porch, and making memories to last a lifetime. We will definitely be working with Arens Travel Design again in the future for another vacation!

Josh planned a trip of a life time. Words cannot express the wonderful trip for us. We traveled by train, cruise ship, bus, and rented car in Alaska. Josh gave us directions to go from one place to the next which was so helpful. We saw whales, moose, arctic fox, grizzly bear, and caribou with Josh’s planning. There is no way we could have planned this trip without him.

Arens Travel Design is the best!!! We used this company for not 1, but 2 honeymoons (thanks to a COVID postponed wedding). It was excellent to work with this business to plan our honeymoons while we planned our wedding. First it was ATD's guidance in booking the most beautiful resort in St Lucia and the best day trips (snorkeling, hiking the Pitons, Sulphur Springs, boat tours). We enjoyed working with them so much that we had ATD plan our whole 2nd honeymoon to Monterrey and Carmel, California. ATD hooked us up with staying at a beautiful golf resort and they went above and beyond to make reservations for wine tours/tastings, scooter rides, sunset golfing with wine, and passes to see the Monterrey Aquarium (which were extremely difficult to get at the time). Would highly recommend using this company to anyone...it takes a lot of stress out of planning your honeymoons, or any trip.
