ABOUT USA TRAVEL DUET
A Travel Duet is a leisure travel company that caters exclusively to couples. Since its inception in 2012, we've tried to build a great network of travel partners that include the choicest hotels, boutique getaways, cruises and experiences. Our team is always on the move, touring, attending travel fairs, curating new experiences or making new friends in the travel industry. We have a never-ending curiosity about off the radar activities and believe in offering nothing but high quality and finely selected experiences to our clients. Our aim is to ensure a seamless experience from the first interaction till the guest is back from a journey.
Bond over Experiences
Having toured the world and experienced what different countries have on offer, we found that there's
much more to do than visit exotic locales or stay in top-notch accommodations. That's when, with
honeymoon we started reinventing ourselves by giving each couple something more to discover. We
that a honeymoon could be all the more exciting when couples indulge in experiences that give them a
chance to not just discover new countries but discover each other. These authentic experiences could
vary from taking tango lessons in Buenos Aires, to picking grapes and making wine in Italy or even
scuba diving together in Fiji!
These moments of revelations, of headiness and the thrill of experiencing something new is what we want our honeymooners to indulge in. We only curate experiences based on tastes and preferences and sometimes even go the extra mile to custom design experiences exclusively. We encourage you to "bond over experiences" on your honeymoon with A Travel Duet.

Your honeymoon itinerary is only the beginning of a handcrafted experience. What we like to add to each
itinerary is our personal touch. These could be handpicked fine dining suggestions, hidden local
or even mind-blowing surprises during your honeymoon. All our honeymoon crafters work with couples
and keep note of minute details that help us come up with innovative ideas for each couple. It is possible
any luxury honeymoon specialist to provide the highest of comforts but we enjoy adding an additional element
style to our itineraries.
Over the course, we've had the opportunity to create unique experiences for couples that wanted to surprise, celebrate and plan a honeymoon of their dreams. Some of these truly bespoke experiences include the following:
- A client wanted to surprise her husband on his birthday, which happened to be during their honeymoon. We sent a midnight cake at the First Light villa in Eagles Nest, New Zealand followed by a private helicopter ride next morning. In the evening we sent a private chef to give them a villa dining experience.
- During her honeymoon, two days before their visit to Chania, Greece, a client Whatsapped us saying she wanted to surprise her husband as they were completing their first month as a married couple. They arrived at the island and were welcomed with a late evening couple spa experience at their hotel followed by a cozy dinner. Both of them were ecstatic by the surprise!
- Another client wanted to plan a surprise for her parents' 25th anniversary in Australia. We arranged a private yacht for a sunset cruise followed by dinner at an exclusive dining spot in Sydney. Then, they were picked up in a stretch limo and taken pub hopping! It cost a bomb but was well worth it!
- One of our honeymooning couples was in New Zealand during Valentine's Day. We surprised them by booking a theatre room in a quirky independent cinema in a small town. The couple had private access, got to choose a film from the ones on offer and had a table set with wine and horsd'ouvres. They were thrilled beyond words.
- A honeymooner wanted to surprise his spouse during their honeymoon in Fiji. We sent them on a private sunset cruise followed by a candle lit dinner on the beach. To top it, we had a guitarist play for them. She was floored!
