Travel & Tourism Awards 2020 Page 51 their well-travelled and knowledgeable minds. Through a personal network of private castle owners, clients of So Me Travel can experience a unique look at some of the most revered castles and palaces that are usually closed to the general public. The luxury of So Me Travel’s service begins well before the plane has hit the tarmac. Client relations are a big part of what the firm offers, ensuring that staff are highly-knowledgeable themselves and able to answer many of the questions that clients may have. Together, the small team take care of everything else, from transportation to tickets, art experts, guided tours, hotel, private accommodation, meetings with interesting personalities, meals, and so much more. Each excursion and experience is far more than a carefully-curated and themed tour focusing on music, art, and architecture; it is a glimpse into the beautifully rich and detailed tapestry of Europe’s cultural history. Always exclusive and authentic, every excursion planned and delivered by So Me Travel’s core leadership team brings a keen understanding of the European arts, luxury travel, and an insatiable desire to share it with those who love it just as much. Sophie Mensdorff-Pouilly, So Me Travel’s founder and managing director, alongside Head of Operations, Felix Clam-Martinic, and Head of Business Development, Liz Rider, together create unforgettable experiences that reveal the beauty of the European arts like never before. Despite the countless wonderful tours that So Me Travel already offers, the firm has its sights set firmly on delivering even more. Transylvania in Romania has played host to many tourists over the years, who visit the world-famous Bran Castle as the supposed home of Dracula. However, for the discerning clientele of So Me Travel, they will soon have a private tour on the day the castle is closed. A member of the family who owns Bran Castle will host clients for a look around the castle and its many secrets, as well as a special dinner at the towering fortress itself. So Me Travel’s tours are special, offering guests the chance to meet knowledgeable locals and interesting personalities, gaze at private art collections, delight in marvelous music performances and marvel at castles where history oozes from every crack and crevice. Europe is a truly wondrous continent, and the luxury of So Me Travel lies in its impeccable ability to unlock some of its most elusive secrets for discerning clients.
