My clients seek authentic, meaningful and immersive travel experiences—exactly what I look for on my adventures. I establish a level of trust when I can provide clients my honest opinion and detailed information on what to expect.

Adrenalin-pumping trips are Garnett’s specialty, and she was also highlighted for her expertise in luxury travel in Australia, where she lived for a year and recently spent a month of her summer. A certified dive master, proficient photographer, outdoor enthusiast, passionate cook and marathon runner, her interests span many destinations. Her adventures include scuba diving alongside whale sharks in Australia’s Ningaloo Reef, scaling Cappadocia’s rock formations in Turkey, trekking Kenya’s cloud forests alongside the Maasai, and waking up before sunrise in Brazil’s Pantanal to search for jaguars. Her firsthand knowledge and fresh takes on traditional destinations gain the trust of her clients, and oftentimes her inspirational experiences end up in her clients’ itineraries depending on their interests and activity level.

“My clients seek authentic, meaningful and immersive travel experiences—exactly what I look for on my adventures. I establish a level of trust when I can provide clients my honest opinion and detailed information on what to expect when visiting remote destinations. It can be very overwhelming without a trusted adviser to guide you,” notes Absolute Travel sales manager Brooke Garnett. “Plus, my firsthand experiences and connections allow me to be very creative when designing trips. Insider experiences such as a private sleep out under the stars at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve in South Africa or an exclusive tour of Cartagena’s markets with a local chef (and Anthony Bourdain's Colombian culinary insider) followed by superb lunch and mojitos at his seaside home are the touches that make a vacation an unforgettable journey.”

Brooke works with discerning, adventurous and curious travelers across the globe seeking a highly personalized luxury travel experience. She customizes every trip—there are no set departures and no packaged tours. She has created high-end journeys ranging from witnessing East Africa’s legendary migration by horseback and trekking through the roof of the world in Ladakh to exploring the lesser-known parts of Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef. Her impressive retention rate is attributed to their firsthand destination knowledge, dedication to highly personalized experiences, insider access, and unsurpassed service.

Travel + Leisure VP/Publisher Jay Meyer and News Editor Amy Farley debuted the list and congratulated the 83 Virtuosos who are featured on Travel + Leisure A-List of Top Travel Advisors at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas during Virtuoso® Travel Week on August 12th. The complete list of all 161 top travel advisors who are on the twelfth annual Travel + Leisure A-List will be highlighted in Travel + Leisure’s October issue.
