Our Mission

To ensure your destination becomes three-dimensional for you—so you not only “see” a place, but feel it. That means pairing you with local-led experiences that get you truly engaging with your surroundings Because nobody should sit on the sidelines of their own vacation.

We’ll tap our vetted travel partners to create vibrant, hands-on excursions and activities that elevate every part of your escape. Let us do the heavy lifting to uncover the places, people, and experiences that will bring out the authentic flavor of your destination—all you have to do is come with an open mind, and immerse yourself in it all.

Explore Authentically

Meet Mary Fisher

At The Bon Vivant Traveler, I create seamless vacations that delight all your senses. I believe that our vacations are too precious to be one-dimensional, and so instead my team and I craft thoughtful travel experiences that connect you deeply to your destination, your loved ones, and yourself. 

My Story

Through my own travels, I’ve found that a place becomes so much more alive when I engage all my senses—often with the help of a local expert. In Paris, that meant hooking up with a pastry chef who took us on a tour of her personal favorite cafes, spice shops, and (of course!) patisseries. On an intimate culinary tour through Venice, I tasted tantalizing Veneto delicacies, enjoyed the lively aromas wafting through the food and fish markets, and felt the fine spray of mist on my face as we zipped across the canal in a water taxi. It was a true sensory experience, one where I learned so much about Venice’s food traditions, ate myself silly, and came away with new friendships!

I want to create that same sense-ational 
“insider” discovery for you.

My custom itineraries often have a “foodie” bent (previously I worked for an Italian distributor importing fine culinary goods like Italian cheeses and meats, aged balsamic vinegar, and the best EVOOs). But whether you want to taste your way through a destination or revel in its art and architecture, hike or cycle through the landscape, or simply bliss out in beautiful surroundings, I’ll make sure you’re connected to the right local “insiders” so you can do it all authentically.

And—I’ll make sure it all happens seamlessly for you. As your personal travel advisor, I’ll stitch together all the details, troubleshoot and triple-check everything for you behind the scenes, and provide on-the-fly guidance and assistance as you delve into your destination.

All you have to do? Let your senses lead the way, as you craft lifetime memories inspired by indulgent moments of discovery.
