We are professional travel stylists who customize every journey around your personal whims and wishes. Our expertise comes from matching your personality and expectations with the ideal destinations and experiences.


Whatever your demographic, whatever your desire, whatever your whimsy, we are your go-to stylists. Whether you’re celebrating a milestone anniversary or birthday, planning a destination wedding , honeymoon or family reunion, combining the occasion with a perfectly planned vacation makes it even more special.



During our 36 years in business, we have personally visited more than 80 countries around the world, making strong connections with a global network of niche tour companies, private guides and hotel managers.

global concierge

We have the experience, connections and know-how to provide 24/7 global concierge services to help you make the most of your time while traveling. If you want hard-to-get tickets to events and exhibitions, a table at the hottest new restaurant in town, or exclusive access to tours not offered to the general public, we can make it happen.

Take your passion on vacation! Our area of expertise include around-the-world bespoke itineraries, culinary and wine tours, eco-tourism and adventure travel, spa, ski and sun vacations , cruises and  private villa rentals—all of which we can combine into a romantic vacation for two or a multi-generational journey for the whole family.

the bears: jody & steven

Hi, we’re Jody and Steven Bear, and our passion for travel is wonderfully contagious! For more than 30 years, Bear & Bear Travel has given our clients the best of both worlds: the expertise, experience and personalized attention of a boutique agency combined with the international clout of Tzell and Travel Leaders Group—two of the biggest names in travel.


Jody has been on the Condé Nast Traveler Specialist list for 15 years and named in Travel + Leisure’s current 2019 A-List of Top Agents. Constantly traveling the globe to find the latest hotspots and resorts, she counts many hotel directors and restaurant managers as personal friends, which makes it easier for her to secure those hard-to-get reservations for her clients.


When Steven met Jody, a burgeoning travel agent in NYC’s Greenwich Village, it was love (and business) at first sight. With Steven’s contacts in the restaurant and fashion worlds, and Jody‘s travel know-how and passion, the business grew exponentially and the rest is history.
