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.

Kit and Ksusha, thank you both so much for all of your work in coordinating our travel plans to New Zealand. We had such a fabulous time and everything went so well thanks to your help! All of our accommodations were really good and one of our favorites was Vintner’s Retreat. It was perfect for our family. Also, place on the coast in Punakaiki was really special. Thank you again for your contribution to our family’s wonderful vacation!
