Hi. I'm Cassandra!

I'm a Brooklyn-based writer, tour leader, travel planner, and solo adventurer extraordinaire. When I'm not climbing volcanoes, jumping off waterfalls, biking the Andes, or scuba diving in the Red Sea, you can find me salsa dancing and cycling through New York City.

As enjoyable and fulfilling as travel can be, travel planning can also be time-consuming and exhausting. Whether you're a solo vegan traveler looking to backpack across South America, a newlywed couple wanting to hike Machu Picchu, or an adventurous family looking for a kid-friendly trip to Egypt, I create personalized trips customized to each person or group's interests, goals, and budget.

I lead group tours to Cuba and Mexico and craft itineraries for solo travelers, couples, and groups interested in authentic, off-the-beaten-track experiences around the world.

You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube!

I joined EscapingNY group trips to both Cuba and Mexico, which offered in-depth, authentic experiences. I’d highly recommend EscapingNY to anyone interested in really getting to know a country.

We had an amazing time in Egypt. It’s not often that you look forward to a trip so much and it actually lives up to it’s expectations like this did. It was the trip of a lifetime.

Sample travel services offered

The Consultant

Want to plan your own trip to Mexico but not sure where to go? Let me know your interests (Mayan ruins, art galleries, beaches, and whale watching) and I'll recommend certain cities, routes, and activities and give you the information you need to build your own dream vacation.

The Sidekick

Have you already started planning your trip to Egypt but need help finalizing the itinerary and securing trusted on-the-ground guides and hard-to-secure reservations? I'll help you book the Nile River cruise, Red Sea scuba diving adventure or hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings and leave the rest to you so you can stay flexible on the ground.

The Co-Pilot

Heading to Cuba and want someone else to handle all the details? Based on your interests (scuba diving, rock climbing, cycling, live music) and travel style, I will craft a personalized itinerary, arrange transportation, lodging, guides, and activities. I can also set you up with a "Friend for a Day", a friendly local who will accompany you to the hottest clubs, art galleries, and cultural events.
