Hi! I’m Soldi, your personal travel advisor. From transformative safaris to luxe beach escapes (and everything in between!), I custom-craft journeys that are the perfect mix of luxe + local. Indulgent + immersive. Heart-stirring + fun.
Because it’s not just about getting “off the beaten path.”
It’s about where that path takes you.
Whether that’s through a dense Costa Rican jungle with howler monkeys swinging overhead, or among rhino and buffalo in Africa, as your guide shepherds you to your sumptuous eco lodge…
Or past whitewashed Grecian villages that seem to tumble into the sea, on a private yachting excursion that flits you between islands…
With my exclusive connections to authentic adventures, extensive personal travel experience, and meticulous itinerary design, your path is guaranteed to lead you to the extraordinary.

I was born and raised in South Africa and enjoyed a childhood of adventuring into the bush, camping and traveling extensively throughout Southern Africa. So adventure and exploration run through my blood—but I also love the bliss of a luxe safari lodge, camp or boutique hotel!
On my own worldwide escapes (41 countries and counting), I’m always seeking out that perfect balance.
Learn why I’m so passionate about planning seamless itineraries that are equal parts immersive and restorative:

"Soldi was a pleasure to work with. She made it so easy and stress free. She introduced us to a new country and hotel. The accommodations were beautiful accommodations and she planned so many exciting adventures for us. I can’t thank her enough. Bravo Soldi"
"'Soldi was a fantastic resource for us as we began the extensive process of planning a South African safari for our family of 5. Her passion for planning what would be the trip of a lifetime for us was evident from the beginning, and her enthusiasm was contagious! She stayed in contact with us regularly and always made herself available to provide support as we navigated the challenge of rescheduling our trip due to COVID-19. Her positive energy and love for helping others discover her native country were delightful. We would highly recommend her to anyone!''
"Our experience with Soldi was a pleasure from start to finish. After an in depth first call to get a real understanding of the type of holiday we were after Soldi put together an itinerary of Costa Rica with destinations, transport, guides, activities and eco resorts that suited us perfectly. The whole trip was faultless and resulted in a stress free magical vacation we will never forget."
"Soldi was terrific to work with. She understood our family and was able to put together a fabulous vacation that worked for everybody. She planned unique experiences and had wonderful tour guides and hosts to help us along the way. Everything was perfect thanks to Soldi!"
"Soldi was fantastic. Her advice and guidance definitely dramatically improved our vacation. Soldi listened intently to what we wanted the vacation to be and then made tailored recommendations to suit. She was also very attentive and responsive. Highly recommended."
"Soldi is incredible to work with! She is extremely passionate about travel and so knowledgeable about the local areas, tours and the hotels themselves. Soldi is able to work with everyone to go above and beyond your needs exceeding expectations for an avid traveler or a family that is just starting to travel!"
"Soldi has booked several trips for us and we are always so happy to work with her. She is very patient, knowledgeable, kind and easy to work with. Her passion for travel is infectious. Because of covid we had to pivot in our travels several times and Soldi took the time to provide the best advice for my family to make sure we had a good time on each trip. Booking travel can be overwhelming if you don't know where to look but Soldi makes it easy and stress-free. I would highly recommend Soldi for anyone who enjoys travel but needs some help either to get out of their comfort zone or to have an expert in their corner to think of every detail of the trip. She is the best!"
"Soldi Foster of Journey's by Soldi is a travel agent extraordinaire. After planning what was going to be a perfectly planned and executed trip to Spain for 15, she had to help us cancel it due to new Covid restrictions and fears. Then, in a matter of hours, Soldi had a new itinerary scheduled for our big group which included hotel, restaurant and transportation reservations during one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, Christmas break. Her back and forth communication and responsiveness was amazing. And it didn't end there; Soldi, also helped us navigate the insurance to get our claims filed. The support, understanding, networking and ability to do what she does is why we will definitely use Soldi for all of our travel needs in the future."
