INTELLIGENT TRAVEL

Intelligent travel means having real, rare, and transformational experiences. The Luminaire crafts journeys with unique access and captivating stories that spark curiosity – offering fun, excitement, and a deeper understanding of the world.

The journeys on our website are already carefully crafted to create outstanding experiences. But we always listen to guests and personalise trips to individual needs, from journey duration and hotel preferences, to the smallest details that we know are important to our travellers.

The Luminaire’s local knowledge and extensive network of global experts deliver a rich and seamless travel experience. Our travel team is available to every guest, providing support before, during and after each journey.

"It was truly customised to what I wanted… that level of attention, thought, listening and detail…was excellent.”
