Adventure Effortlessly

Your Way

Embark on a custom journey that excites, delights, and dazzles you—
without lifting a finger yourself.

From touring the Tower of London with your own personal guide, to gliding through the turquoise waters of the Greek islands on a speedboat, from spotting Big Five game on an African safari, to sipping smooth Sangiovese at a family-run Tuscan winery, my clients expect local, authentic immersion tailored to their interests and style—and I give them nothing less. 

No cookie cutters here!

Hi, I’m Denise Burcksen

Your expert travel advisor and founder of Luxury Travel Adventures.

I craft highly-personalized journeys that let you explore the world the way you  want to, while making lifetime memories with those you love. 

This is the essence of why we travel with those closest to us —to connect, see, feel, learn, taste, relax, experience.

And, everyone has their own needs. Whether it’s a stylish stay in Milan, a family reunion in the Caribbean or a thrilling safari in South Africa,  I leave no stone unturned in my search for just the right accommodations and experiences for you, to elevate your travel from ordinary to one-of-a-kind.

Your Trusted Advocate

For the past 12 years, I’ve developed relationships with the world’s top travel companies—and I’m not afraid to ask for the best possible value for my clients. You get more inclusions and VIP service, always. I also solve problems behind the scenes, so you can count on a seamless travel experience from start to finish.

A Personal Approach

How do you want to experience your destination? Let’s craft an escape around your unique passions. I also carefully consider your family’s needs —like any allergies, mobility issues, kids’ ages, and how much free time you crave—so you get an itinerary that makes you feel safe, comfortable, and well cared for.

It’s time to adventure effortlessly, Your Way
