MS. GUIDED TRAVEL STANDS WITH
Your Ms. Guided adventure starts here
If you're looking for the roads less traveled, you've found your guide. Ms. Guided Travel is a boutique travel company creating tailor-made experiences in exotic and exceptional locations worldwide.
For close-to-home escapes or far-flung trips of a lifetime, I'll build you a safe, successful, and unforgettable vacation. My expertise and access to the invitation-only Virtuoso network means you'll always enjoy the world's best travel brands, perks, and experiences.
I'll show you the roads less traveled. You enjoy the journey.
So tell me, what in the world do you want to experience next?
I often talk with travelers who simply aren't getting what they want out of their DIY vacations. That's because why you travel and how you travel matter just as much as where you travel to—and the online booking tools used by the masses don't bother asking you about this.
From relaxing in chic B&Bs to exploring medieval castles, and from private tropical island retreats to family discovery trips, your travel experiences should reward you—every time.
xplore & Connect
Connect with the world and with each other as you experience the rich cultures around you. Discover history where it was made, learn the ropes from a local tradesperson, or push your limits on an arctic expedition—the possibilities are endless!
Prefer the water? Whether you're a fan of river cruises, private yachts, expedition ice-breakers, elegant ocean liners or rock star, rebel-luxe voyages, your ship has come in! Guests of Ms. Guided Travel enjoy extras like shipboard credits, spa treatments, and exclusive excursions.
Honeymoon, babymoon, anniversary, birthday, bachelorette, or just because, your trip will be anything but typical and every bit exceptional. Your special occasion is curated around who you are as a couple, family, group, or individual and within your designated budget.
I specialize in customized planning, so just like my Ms. Guided clients, no two itineraries will ever be the same. No packages necessary.
A well-designed retreat will leave you feeling refreshed, invigorated, and ready to take on life from a positive new perspective. Whether you're a business owner featuring your services to your client following, a company leader creating an inspiring team-building event, a family member putting together a memorable, multi-generational reunion, or any group looking to have an immersive experience, I will find the ideal accommodations and professional expertise that will make the most of your retreat goals. I can also be available to co-host your retreat to ensure everything goes especially smooth.
When the world's finest travel suppliers and on-ground destination experts help curate your journey, you get an unforgettable experience—no matter where in the world you go. Want some unique destination ideas? Browse my inspiration gallery below with links to sample itineraries:

Meet the Ms. Guided Founder, Jessica Avery
Do you know what I love most about my work? Incurable case of wanderlust aside, what I truly cherish as an inspiration junkie is the privilege of being a part of designing and implementing people's dreams. I believe that travel is an extra-special part of our personal story, so let's craft it like a best-seller!
I also take tremendous pride in being your personal advocate, before, during and after your travels. Providing first-class, personalized service is an integral part of my business and I strive to deliver the impossible as a matter of routine. Travel and culture are my passions, but building and maintaining relationships is my strength.
History, literature, art, and music have spurred on many of my travel adventures. One of my most moving travel memories is listening to "Wind of Change" in Gorky Park during Russia's 1992 political transition period, and "Africa" while touring an African wildlife preserve in Malawi. It's incredible to find yourself in the very moments you've only previously dreamed about.
What's fueling your passion to roam and to where? Spare me no details, I'd love to hear all about it!
"Leave room for spontaneity. Life's greatest joys happen in unplanned moments."
Ms. Guided Reviews
Jessica, I want to thank you for the help you gave me on my trip to Turks/Caicos Islands! What a wonderful vacation! It was perfect! Just perfect! I had the most wonderful time and I felt like a Superstar! The Shore Club was above and beyond what I had ever expected. Not only the rooms but the staff as well. Everyone was so kind and courteous. The beaches were exquisite! Just like you said they would be! It felt like I was in a travel magazine! There was so much to see and do. I just might have to go back!
Thank you so much for your attention to detail, for helping me figure everything out, and so kind to help me with the Covid Protocols. I seriously could not have done that without your help. You went above and beyond to make sure I had all my documents in order. VIP treatment for sure! Nothing but good times! I look forward to my next trip made easy by you!
