On behalf of all of us at Artisans of Leisure, we wish you and your loved ones a safe, healthy and joyful holiday season.
This has been a challenging year for everyone, and we are incredibly grateful for each and every one of you and for our wonderful team that has provided joy, camaraderie and inspiration throughout these trying times.
During the pandemic, we've all been dreaming of travel. With promising vaccine news and borders beginning to open in destinations around the world, 2021 is looking brighter and brighter.
Wishing you a very happy, healthy and travel-filled 2021!
We love this feedback that we received from a client who is in Egypt this week:
I have had the most wonderful time in Egypt! More than I ever thought possible. As you promised, my guide has been extraordinary—he is brilliant. Knowledgeable about all things Egypt from ancient to modern times—archeology, arts, politics, humanity. I was so fortunate to book with Artisans of Leisure. I am forever grateful.

Like many of you, we really missed spending time in Europe last summer. We're hopeful that borders will open again in time for travel in summer 2021—we're already seeing high demand for popular European destinations such as Italy, Greece, England, Scotland, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, France and Iceland. We recommend planning ahead to make sure the top properties are available for your preferred travel dates.

An African safari is one of our top experiences for 2021. Safaris offers exclusivity, beautiful nature and wide-open spaces. They are also a wonderful experience to share with family. Many safari destinations have remained open and are eager to continue welcoming travelers.
Artisans of Leisure's safari experts take care of everything, such as booking the best safari lodges, securing top safari guides and trackers, booking private charter flights, and arranging unforgettable experiences throughout Africa.
The level of luxury in top safari destinations has always been high and is getting better by the day, with many camps and lodges opening or undergoing major rebuilds and renovations.
