We’re busy planning last-minute trips, holiday getaways and incredible multicountry tours for the spring and summer—our travelers are eager to return to favorite destinations and finally be able to go places they've dreamed of visiting. We recommend booking sooner rather than later as the most in-demand destinations are already selling out far in advance.
For travel during the coming weeks, there are many great options still available. Autumn is one of our favorite seasons to travel. In many parts of the world, fall means great weather, fewer crowds, fun harvest festivities, and delicious food and wine experiences. Some of our favorite autumn travel destinations include:
We’re also happy to announce that favorite destinations have recently opened or are expected to be opening soon, including India, Israel, Thailand, Argentina, Chile, Norway, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

For travelers wanting a European destination full of picture-postcard towns, spectacular mountain landscapes, luxurious hotels, and great food and wine, we recommend Switzerland.
View beautiful photos from a luxurious multigenerational family trip that Artisans of Leisure recently arranged in Switzerland, including favorite places around Lake Geneva and the Lake Lucerne Region.
“Artisans of Leisure did such an amazing job planning our family trip to Switzerland. Everyone’s interests were thought of and there was something special for everyone, including the children. The five-year-old’s birthday party with a dinosaur cake and balloons was so special! Standout highlights for us were the beautiful suites with lake views, fondue in Gruyeres, great restaurants and gorgeous Lucerne. The private wine tasting with the 17th-generation winemaker at his home in the Lavaux vineyards was epic.
This was the trip of a lifetime.”

“We had a great time in Italy and your team synchronized everything perfectly. Our guide in Rome was the best guide I’ve ever had in Europe. The authentic cooking class in a beautiful 16th-century palazzo in Venice was a dream.”
