Exploring the world opens up doors for our children...Having kids who are comfortable in different environments and who have empathy for people is very important to me...

Considered a revered authority on travel with kids, Overton’s credentials as a family travel expert come from over 25 family adventures, almost three decades in the travel industry giving her connections to arrange rare family travel experiences not available to the general public, her ability to demystify worst-case family travel scenarios, her creativity to recommend thoughtful and inspiring family travel itineraries, and her savviness in handling complex family journeys.

Her commitment to family travel supports why she’s been chosen to this competitive list, which only a fraction of the best travel planners hope to receive. Her family adventures include climbing giant sand dunes in Chile’s Atacama Desert, watching her kids’ classes come alive as they walk amongst Cambodia’s ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat and attempting to scale skyscrapers in Dubai. “Exploring the world opens up doors for our children. We are living in a global village, and the world gets smaller every day as our interdependence grows. Having kids who are comfortable in different environments and who have empathy for people is very important to me,” she explains.

Overton prioritizes traveling with her family of five in order to have a nuanced understanding of what traveling with children involves so she can make personalized recommendations for her clients and create highly experiential family journeys all around the world. She plans trips for curious, discerning family travelers seeking a highly personalized luxury travel experience. Her extensive repeat and referral clients is credited to her creative family travel itineraries that engage the kids, her firsthand-destination knowledge, and the chance to speak to someone who understands the anxiety surrounding traveling internationally with the kids.
