First Hand + By Heart

Every year, the LANDED team of devoted traveler designers spends months exploring our destinations, making connections, and scouting out options.

We know, because we go.

Our founders travel solo, as a couple, and with their children in tow–a range of experience that provides valuable context for all types of clients.



Why do hundreds of clients choose to work with LANDED each year? Why are nearly 90% of our sales either repeat or referral?


We are real people, accessible in real life. When you contact LANDED, you’ll have a personal response within a few business hours. Roughly 80% of potential clients travel with LANDED once we’ve had a conversation about their proposed trip design.

When you choose LANDED, we’ll be here for you. We answer questions, make informed recommendations, and take care of the details.


We founded LANDED in 2006. Since then we’ve helped thousands of clients turn their travel dreams into memories. We design and manage hundreds original, custom-tailored, private journeys each year. Among those are vacations for many of the top names in business, music, fashion, and film.

John Montgomery, LANDED’s Co-Founder, was named to Conde Nast Traveler’s 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 list of Top Travel Specialists. Erynn Montgomery is also part of the Conde Nast Traveler contributors.


We’ve developed an eclectic global network of local experts, partners, guides, and insiders. These friends and allies are at your service.

We are members of the invitation-only Serandipians (formerly known as Traveller Made) consortium. Nominations by our peers within Serandipians include:
