At Inside Travel Experiences, we turn travel dreams into memories. Meet our team and see for yourself why you’ll be in great hands with us and our local hosts.

Unlike most others, we don’t just work in travel, but we live and love what we do — for decades and counting. Combined, we’ve been to over 100 countries, Sandra alone’s flown over 2 million miles and let’s not even try guessing how many beers Ted’s sampled since his high school year in Germany in the 90s.

Our Travel Love Story

It started at Oktoberfest

In 2002, we, Sandra & Ted, met in Munich, Germany — on an Oktoberfest trip. It was love at first sight: for Ted. Let’s say opposites attract! A craft beer loving engineer from PA and a German gal from wine country who worked as a reporter for the Bundesliga, met at the world’s greatest beer fest and have been traveling together ever since.

Fast forward five years, countless journeys back and forth between Europe and the US, and we finally tied the knot in Venice (not at the Venetian) in 2007. That same year, we launched our boutique travel company in New York City with the mission to make group travel to Europe better. Originally called Incantato — which turned out to be almost impossible to pronounce –, we switched to Inside Travel Experiences which sums up perfectly what our offering’s all about.

Our daughter Thea was born a year later and the main reason we moved or family and the company down south. Combined, the three of us have traveled around the world at least twice and Thea’s been to her sixth continent before starting high school. Travel’s a family thing.

With over 15 years in the happy industry of travel and 5,000+ clients, offices in the US and one in Europe, plus a never-ending bucket list, we’ve made it our mission that our guests always travel better together.
