"I discovered a "bespoke" travel consultant named Brown+Hudson. What I got was a service that catered to my preferences right down to whether I liked a boutique hotel or a five-star experience or wanted a veggie meal instead of meat. "What did I want to see?" they asked, before getting to work.
The company's mission is to get you what you want, no matter how unusual the request. In my case, they sent a travel expert in advance of my arrival, to look into things I had fantasized about, and we enjoyed a week of discovery in a faraway country."
- Gerald Ezkenazi, The New York Times
