We just wanted to say thank you so much. All of our reservations were perfect and Marilyn was so much fun. She is a lovely person and we enjoyed her so much. Thank you, and we will be in touch when our destinations cross paths again.


Jennifer, I really enjoyed the bespoke experience. Learned about everything that interested me and more. Many myths about New Orleans were crushed with the true story. The breadth of the tour and the conversation with Janice was tremendous. You have something good going on there. I hope you can expand into Latin America with similar programs.

Perfect experience. First time using Bespoke travel services and couldn’t be more satisfied. Our guide, Alec Quig, was fantastic. Alec is a rapid fire, encyclopedic- knowledge gifted ambassador. He shows you what you want to see as well as what you need to see. Within minutes, we felt we were being shown the city by an old friend. Alec’s knowledge of all things New Orleans is beyond impressive. After a 4-hour tour, my wife and I felt immersed in the diverse culture and layout of the city. We saw just the right amount of neighborhoods, cemeteries, landmarks, restaurants, bars, off the path local joints, and significant places that helped us begin to understand the vibe and soul of New Orleans. From a voodoo priest ritual in Congo Square to the best gas station-fried chicken spot in town, we covered it all. The days following the tour, we visited some live music venues recommended by Alec and, again, we were not disappointed. Book with Alec now.

I was one of the 4 who participated on the Bespoke Private Tour in Nashville with Mike Madden this past Tuesday. I wanted to let you know that I personally thought the tour was excellent. Our guide was one of the very best I have had over the years. Bennjin was not only well versed in the history of all that we saw but was extremely accommodating. His patience was second to no one. Not only was he knowledgeable, he displayed an interest in us and our families. He is a remarkable young man and an asset to your organization.

I guess I also need to give you credit not only for the 4th row center section seats at the Opry but also the surprise appearance of Blake Shelton. Not sure how you pulled that off, but thank you!

Words cannot convey the true pleasure it has been to work with you. Your company is aptly named as our time together on behalf of my client, Roberta Golub, and her guests, truly was a Bespoke Experience.

I’m not quite sure what attracted me to your company at first, but I am truly pleased that I followed my instincts. From our first meeting through proposal to the planning stages to production and execution, I could not have asked for more and I’m known to set the bar rather high.

Both you and Grace dotted every “I” and crossed every “t”. I often joked that you were the me on this project, but I was actually serious. You made it possible for me to be a guest and experience the agenda with fresh eyes. I have often been a guest at my client’s events and I have often worked with outside sources, but I have never before been as happy, relaxed and satisfied as I was with you and your company. My ability to enjoy all you offered is testimony to that.

My hats off to you and all at Bespoke Experiences. Thanks to your efforts, New Orleans will forever stand out as a truly wonderful city and a very special experience.

I will look forward to the next time we can work together.

How do you describe a week in New Orleans with a VIP guide that makes every moment magical? It is hard to find the words that adequately communicate what a deliriously, delicious, delectable, divine and somewhat decadent stay was in my favorite city in America. Every step of the way our requests were catered to with seamless precision and infinite attention to detail. Our special needs were anticipated before we even asked and delivered as if we were celebrities.
Her suggestions for every dining experience were decadent and her ability to share meaningful stories about the cities rich history was amazing! More than anything Jennifer's warm character and personality make you feel like you are on an amazing journey with a dear friend.

Sheldon and Debbie Rosenberg

We had such a wonderful time with you and Travis. We appreciate your kindness and care, as well as your knowledge of the history and culture of New Orleans. You made Debbie and I feel like friends of yours, instead of patrons on a guided tour. We had so much fun, especially eating beignets with you at Cafe Du Monde, walking around the open air market (while listening to the jazz group that was playing) and strolling around Jackson Square. The travel accommodations in your sedan made it extra convenient and comfortable for us, too. We even enjoyed seeing some of the old homes, including Sandra Bullock's home and the visit to the cemetery was also unique. Thanks again. We will certainly contact you on our next trip to New Orleans.

Jason Gallagher

I flew into New Orleans along with one of my company’s premier clients. Not knowing the town, where to go or what to show them , we reached out to Bespoke. It absolutely made our trip. The tour and the insight provided with respect to the history of the town was extremely entertaining and educational. My clients really enjoyed the day as did I. I would highly recommend taking a tour of the city whenever you’re in town using the wonderful people at Bespoke. Loved it, thanks again!!!

Scott & Mindy Neuhardt, Mike & Kerry Marsh

Thank you for a great experience in New Orleans. We all thought it was fantastic. The choices you made for our tour were perfect, from the plantation to Sylvester -even the voodoo priest’s snake that sent Mindy running down the block! Because of your tour we all left New Orleans with a much deeper appreciation of its culture, people and entertainment. It was Exactly what we wanted.

The other key to our visit was your recommendations which were spot on. I mean, really, the wives did yoga in the Cabildo - how many locals even do that?! The restaurant recommendations were also great. The one issue we all had is that we did not get the tour on the first day – if it weren’t for the NADA convention, and we had been available to meet you sooner, we would have enjoyed days worth of exploring based on the information you gave us. Thanks again!

Ed & Ben Dunn

Ed: Thank you for helping Ben and I have a memorable experience in New Orleans. I can't imagine how it could have been any better or more enjoyable. You were amazing and delightful as our experience architect; but I'm even more grateful for your thoughtful and genuine kindness. Ben and I feel like we have a new friend. You are a brilliant professional and a very, very special person; it's a privilege to meet you and know you. I wish you and Travis, and Bespoke, incredible growth and success!

Ben: I want to take a moment to sincerely thank you for making my New Orleans experience so enjoyable! I think I can speak for my Dad when I say that we would not have had such a good time without your guidance and expertise. From the moment we met you made me feel like an old friend, and that made the next two days very relaxing and easy to enjoy. From the history of the city, to the vintage guitar shop, to the food and drink, you helped create so many memories. I can't wait to come back and experience so much more! I don't know what I will do now with no drive-up daiquiri stands in Michigan!!

We hope our paths cross again someday. Meanwhile please accept our best wishes for your world to be filled with happiness and success.

I can highly recommend Bespoke Experiences of New Orleans, particularly for those who want to explore not only within but beyond the famous and fabulous French Quarter with itineraries customized to their personal interests. Guides (or, as they put it, 'experience architects') Travis and Jennifer Simpson create fascinating individual or small group luxury excursions featuring everything from the elegant Garden District to the Tremé neighbourhood, site of the popular namesake TV series, and everything in between. Along the way they introduce you to interesting local characters and celebrities ranging from jazz musicians to artists who make their neighbourhoods come alive for visitors from the USA and abroad.

John & Rebecca Dugat

Jennifer and Travis created a made to order (bespoke) adventure for my 50th birthday celebration for my family that was really extraordinary.
Here's why I was impressed: 1) The process - expectations, your interests (are history oriented, inclination for music, food, art, festivals, parks & etc.) make them tailor-made 2) although there are literally hundreds of things to do in New Orleans, it's impossible to see it all in one trip, but with Jennifer and Travis's no-pressure-plan you are going to see everything you want to and MORE! 3) special touches are all over the experience. I've been on tours and this is not a TOUR. It is made just for YOU! 4) this wasn't just an itinerary - it was high level, personalized service. No headphone, recorded tapes or videos. 5) my father's knee gave out on him earlier on this trip, so Travis was kind enough to assist in getting a rental service to deliver a scooter to the hotel for us. Above and beyond the call of duty! And they shuttled us from each stop to the next in a nice luxury car – truly a blessing with New Orleans weather in October.
We love New Orleans, and will use Bespoke again when we come back.

Jennifer and Travis created a tailored itinerary for an anniversary celebration for my family that was really impressive. Here's what we ended up doing: 1) Private drinks in the courtyard of a charming French Quarter mansion. 2) Private tour of major points of interest with historical commentary. 3) A surprise whirl through a lovely natural venue. 4) Dinner at a hard to reserve restaurant, with a gracious reception from the owner. 5) Jazz club visit with a very special interactive element. And they shuttled us from each stop to the next in a nice luxury car - a godsend in the May humidity...

Here's why I was impressed: 1) Personal process - likes, dislikes, personality, food preferences. 2) Pacing was very thought out. 3) They included all kinds of surprises and special touches that were amazing. 4) They seemed to be well-connected with the right venues and right people in NOLA. 5) This wasn't just an itinerary - it was high level, tailored service.

They both have a lot of experience in national-level hospitality management, which showed in the attention to detail, creativity and smooth execution. I would put them up against any "big city" travel planning folks any day of the week! Overall, they planned a very impressive day for our family in NOLA that matched our needs and wants to a T. Very worthwhile. Via TripAdvisor (with flawless 5 star ranking)

I had the pleasure of spending the day with Jennifer and Travis Simpson of Bespoke LLC in New Orleans. Jennifer and Travis offer personalized experiences in exploring their unique town. From cultural events to gastronomic experiences to its historic jazz and blues scene, New Orleans is a complex city, and Jennifer and Travis are an excellent resource if you want your experience to go deeper than the surface. Their personalized experiences display an acute attention to detail and an intimate knowledge of the city they love. I’d be happy to recommend their services to my clients.

Steve Sparks

Bespoke organized a golf day for a friend and I while my wife and her colleagues attended meetings in the city. Afterwards, we reconnected with our partners and had a wonderful dinner followed by an evening exploring the local nightlife based on their recommendations. Great food. Great fun. When we returned to the city we again approached Bespoke to customize an experience for my parents, wife and I. My father and I are ex-military so Bespoke accompanied us on relaxed afternoon tours of the museum, battlefield, and cemetery as well as an uncomplicated, inexpensive lunch that suited my folks just fine. We love New Orleans, and will use Bespoke again when we come back.

Diane Medina

I reached out to the friendly folks at Bespoke when I came to town for the first time as the guest of a local wedding. I was traveling alone and was looking for a knowledgeable companion who would show me around. Not only was Jennifer a joy to spend the day with, I saw things I never would have seen had we not been together: pretty parks, cool shops, the mighty river and fascinating neighbourhoods. I have amazing memories from our experiences, and was so grateful she’d taken care of everything before I arrived (including reminding me what to pack)! I’d highly recommend them to anyone.

PJ Ferguson

When I brought my top executives to New Orleans for a conference, I reached out to Bespoke to organize our dining experience where we celebrated a key sales milestone. Instead of a single restaurant, they expertly arranged for us to progress from one venue to another including transportation from our hotel. Their selections were extraordinary, the timing of everything worked smoothly, and the evening was a success on all fronts. If you’re looking for an efficient, personable team with local expertise, look no further.
