Award-winning private journeys

Welcome to Scott Dunn, an award-winning travel company that customizes exceptional private journeys to destinations all over the world. With offices in California and London, we’ve been crafting vacations for more than 30 years. We believe each trip should be as special and unique as you are. It should be magical, rewarding, rejuvenating and thrilling, which is why we design each itinerary entirely around you. Stay in the finest accommodations, explore with top-notch guides, and enjoy authentic, personal experiences that you’ll cherish forever.

Our travel experts are the best in the business. They've lived and worked in their specialist regions as locals. They have friends, stories and roots there, and they return for at least four weeks each year to fine tune their knowledge. When they share their favorite restaurant, backstreet bodega or most romantic proposal spot, you know they were there themselves not long ago. This expertise combined with our little black book of incredible guides and an impeccable door to door service has earned us the reputation of being the tour operator of choice if you seek truly spectacular experiences, from off-hours tours of the Vatican to a private candlelit dinner in the Taj Mahal.

For your peace of mind, we’re a fully bonded travel company so all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and anticipate the private journey of a lifetime.

Guest testimonials

"I cried when the trip was over. I've never done that before. Sure, I've been bummed when a vacation ended, but I cried! A fabulous opportunity for our children. Everything was fantastic."

Guest testimonials

"The level of service we experienced was first class and everything was very well organized. When we first contacted Scott Dunn to discuss our vacation we really had very little idea of what was on offer in Australia. Thanks to Sophie we got a really varied experience of the country and she more than met our brief of planning a vacation for a family with grown up children."
