our value

bear & bear value

We customize every trip so it’s all about you—just like it should be! Our expertise comes from matching your personality and expectations with the ideal destinations and hotels.

elite privileges

Through our longstanding partnerships with some of the biggest names in travel planning—namely Tzell and Travel Leaders Group—we are able to provide our clients with special bonus amenities and VIP privileges at resorts and on cruise lines throughout the world.

firsthand knowledge

It starts with being there and doing that. That may sound clichéd, but we can assure you that nothing is more valuable in the world of travel than personal experience. Our personal experience ranges across 80+ countries, from luxury spa resorts and island-hopping cruises to mountain treks and safaris. The insights we provide our clients are invaluable.

concierge services

Like a veteran concierge at a 5-star hotel, we can handle all the tiny details of your journey. You name it—special guides, restaurant reservations, private limos, personal chefs, theatre tickets, trip insurance, private villas, airport transfers—and we’ll take care of it.

global connections

Travel is an industry built on relationships; it’s not always about what you know, but who you know. Whether it’s a hard-to-get hotel in Capri, that extraordinary villa in Tuscany, private backstage access to the Bolshoi ballet, the trendy restaurant on St. Barts or the obscure guide in Botswana, we have access to the right people.
