Wheels Up Adventures works with clients throughout the globe to provide first-class accommodations, experiences, transportation, and service through our partnerships with Valerie Wilson Travel, the Virtuoso consortium, and our other travel partners. Although we specialize in luxury travel, we are able to design adventures within all budgets. We collaborate with our clients to design and book custom vacations including the Great Migration in the Serengeti in Tanzania, a family cruise off the coast of Florida, a weekend getaway, to the best surfing spots off the Australian coast. Building authentic relationships with our clients and ensuring that their travel experience is exceptional is our number one priority.
At Wheels Up Adventures we believe that travel, experiencing other places and cultures is essential to living life to the fullest. We understand that each of our clients has a unique perspective on what they want to experience, where they want to go, and what their budget allows. Creating an itinerary based on the expectations, needs, and wants of our client, is the key to ensuring a successful individual, family, group, or mission voyage.
MARNIE VAN DER BURGT – LUXURY TRAVEL ADVISOR
I have had the pleasure of working within the travel industry in a number of capacities. Although this industry allows me to learn every day, I have gained a wealth of knowledge over the years, as a Flight Attendant and Ticket Agent for a major US airline, I have been honored to plan destination weddings, planned multiple large and small mission trips, and I have been blessed to travel throughout Africa, Australia, Europe, Caribbean, North America, and South America.
