Our History

Esplanade Travel was established in 1954 in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, and over the years we have maintained our roots as a small locally-owned business with a focus on luxury travel. We pride ourselves on building individual itineraries to challenge not only the well-traveled, but also to inspire new travelers.

We are still working with some of the same local agents and ground operators around the world as we did when Esplanade started, and have developed a very trusting relationship with the people who will actually be meeting your planes, taking you to your hotels or lodges and introducing you to your guides. We can get an answer for you from virtually anywhere in the world in a matter of hours. If Esplanade has a mission statement it is to change people’s lives in a positive and rewarding way through travel.

Esplanade Travel is mentioned in 1000 Places to See Before You Die, National Geographic Guide to India, Specialty Travel Index, and Fodor’s Guides.

Get in Touch

We really can't say enough wonderful things about Esplanade Travel! It truly was a worry free, "enjoy every moment to its fullest" vacation. Your expertise, customer service and attention to detail (right down to the great portfolio folder with printed itinerary and spiral bound mini-map book) were exceptional. From the very beginning, you made us feel like we were your main focus [when I am very certain you have lots of clients you are dealing with. ;)]  That is so appreciated! <br />
